Hey, I'm Shawn Shakya!
One day when I was a child, a sorceress handed me a magic coin after I watched her bend it with her mind powers. Without question or doubt in my mind I immediately swallowed it. She didn't tell me to, I just assumed that's what you're supposed to do in these situations. It got stuck in my throat and I had to coughed it up, but ever since I've been a pretty good singer.
I heard later she was just a magician there at the Renaissance Festival we were at, but who's to truly say?
