Background:  He was born to a pair of Otters on board a pirate ship. When he was 2 weeks old the ship was attacked by another pirate ship and his parents were killed in the battle.  Soon afterwards the pirate ship attacked the high north coast and was defeated and the slaves rescued.  River, as his parents named him, was sent to an otter holt down the coast were they thought his parents were likely from.  However, when he reached 12 seasons it became apparent that they were not from this holt as he looked a lot different from the son of the male otter who went missing.  He stayed until his sixteenth season and then left to wander.
