Jaron became an orphan when he was young. He went to the orphanages under the name Sage. He pretended and acted like a orphan, making sure no one knew his true identity. When Conner found him and took him home, he met Roden and Tobias, two other orphans Conner picked up. There was a fourth boy (Latamer), but he was killed in an attempt to run away. Sage knew he was going to have to make an escape plan when Conner told them his true motives; to create a false prince.
