Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “Soon after the day that Jack made his birthday bargain with his mother, a woman entered their shop and made an unusual request. The woman, though quite young, claimed to be the captain of a humble vessel docked in an eastern port. ‘My name is Rill,’ the woman said, bowing deep to Jack and his mother. ‘For the past year, I have been asking ever innkeeper, captain, merchant, and mayor I meet a question. Who are the best tailors in the realm? I have heard many names spoken, but only one was spoken by all. Your name.’” Story title appears at top.

Episode Released: 26 January 2023

The Tatterys were tailors who started working in town with a humble business of repairing and refreshing old clothes, and soon expanded to fine tailoring of clothes and tapestries. Jack learned the trade of sewing and tailoring from a young age, as his brother and sister had been required to do before they set out on their own. He knew he would one day mind the family business. Jack was proud of his family’s trade and their shop, and he admired what his parents had built, but so did he admire their courage incoming to a new land to build a new life. He had never gone on any such adventure, and feared he never would.

Still, he dreamed.
