History

General History:
A proud adventurer who was no stranger in foreign lands, John Smith was proud to be among the men who came to colonize the New World with Jameston. While Governor Ratcliffe and the men dug for gold and to establish a fort at the colony, John Smith went to adventure through this New World. It was during this time that he crossed paths with the Native American woman named Pocohontas. The two became fast friends, teaching each other about their respective cultures. John began to fall in love. This love was almost stopped when Pocohontas’ father Chief Powatan forbid her to see any of the white men while Ratcliffe gave John Smith orders to stop seeing any Natives. Both sides planned on attacking the other. John and Pocohontas met up, unaware that they had been followed by Kocoum (Pocohontas’ fiancé) and Thomas (a young colonist). Kocoum attacked John Smith after he kissed Pocohontas, John trying to defend himself. Thomas shot and killed Kocoum to defend his friend, John letting him run and taking the blame for the younger man. The Natives took John captive with intent to execute him at dawn. Pocohontas came to John, the two confessing how much they loved each other. When she left, he broke down to worry about his life. The next day, John was seconds from being executed when Pocohontas saved him by talking her father into saving his life. John was relieved but when he saw Ratcliff about to kill Powatan, taking the bullet intended for the Indian chief. The other colonists turned on Ratcliff and tied him up, transporting him and a dying John Smith back to England.
It was as he was dying that Chernabog’s curse set in, turning him from John Smith to Vance Smith.
Born an only child, Vance’s mother and father considered themselves extremely lucky to have him. They encouraged his side that loved to explore but also were very protective of him. It was this protectiveness that made Vance into a fan of history, specifically the strong and brave pioneers and colonizers of America. Vance wanted to be like these men. He signed up to join the Navy but the death of his father left him alone to take care of his mother. He decided on going to college for education in history, getting his degree at the age of 26. He taught high school for four years before teaching at Yensidia University.
