You devour the child's parent's greedily, and afterwards you feel almost... full. It's a pleasant feeling. Your mind expands with knowledge, knowledge of the world you live in, of the man and woman and child you had killed. You learn of the concepts of compassion and empathy, and they seem strange to you. At the same time your body shifts and alters significantly, until you are almost the spitting image of the woman you had killed. Only your eyes are different, black and cold. From the knowledge you stole from the husband's mind, you know that the voice and clothing you are wearing no longer match your new form.
You quickly dress in some of the mother's clothing, for the moment ignoring the noise of people waking and shouting back and forth. No one knows just what has occurred yet, which suits you just fine. Then gathering up your things, you smear yourself with blood, and slip out the window. You go unseen, and looking down at the streets below, you see people checking another building, unaware of where the noises had even come from. You slip towards the edge of the town, which you now know is called Goodharbor.
You slip up behind the female guard who stands watch alone outside the city gates, drawing your new sword. Your attempt to sneak up on her does not go unnoticed, however and she turns to face you, looking confused and wary, "My god, what happened to you?"
She does not notice the blade in your hand, however, and you ram it into her stomach. She stares at you wide-eyed, coughing up blood, reaching down to draw her weapon. Before she's able to draw her sword, however, you withdraw your blade and strike her again. She staggers back, bleeding and wounding, "What in the hells is wrong with you?! Guards!"
Her blade drawn, she lunges forward, striking at you, but your blows have weakened her and you're easily able to dodge aside from her sword and finish her off with one last strike to the back of her head. She collapses to the ground, and you drag her body off into the shadows, devouring her. Afterwards, you wipe your chin, and test your new voice out, "Nevermind! It was just a drunk!"
Amazingly, it works. You hear a couple of guards laugh and wander off, then you take the things you gathered off the guards corpse and inspect them.

You're left alone now, outside the town with the whole world before you. There's grasslands and forests to the north and east, you know as much, with the nearest city being Lookshy, across the River to the South, or there's Port Calin to the North West, about 400 miles away. You're in the Eastern-most part of the world, a world known only as "Creation", and the world is large. You know only a small portion of what the surrounding lands are like.
