What do I remember about my past?  I remember being chased through the streets.  I was running as fast as I could to get away.  They were waving sticks and shouting.  They thought I was a thief.  I knew if I was caught, there would be no time for talking and defending myself.  I would be hung.  So I ran.  After that I met Leonardo.  And he took me in and let me stay.  Life with the master was incredible.  And I have a secret wish to become an artist also so I am learning all I can from him.  One thing I have learned is how to make excuses for not finishing his work.  He has been commissioned to paint the Last Supper but he just won't get to work.  Is there anything I can do to get him going?
