The hapless slave on the natural world somehow continued to live through great adventures. He was send as a messenger throughout civilized and uncivilized Gor to deliver invitations to International festivals and some how even survived the Alar, Kataii, and Tachuk deliveries.
He met and fell in love with the Regent of Teletus during a warrior run. He even kissed her at a waterfall, once. Each time the slave was transported through the Isles he would leave her a flower on the sill of her window. Parvin can still close his eyes and smell her.
Parvin, under peer pressure from the educated slaves of Scimitar enrolled in Mur Academy. Unable to read and more interested in fighting, the slave had only passed three tests in three turns and was dishonorably discharged from the educational institution. Holding no animosity towards the Academy, he would return to visit and drag new slaves there for schooling.
