Aelred Ironkey, born to a modest family in the seacoast city of Arsilet, displayed an unusual fascination with locks and keys from a young age. His father, a blacksmith specializing in the creation of a wide variety of shipboard items, had hoped Aelred would follow in his footsteps. However, Aelred's interests lay not in weapons but in the artistry and mechanics of locks, a curiosity sparked by an old, rusted lock he found near the docks.

Recognizing his son's passion, Aelred's father introduced him to the workings of metal and machinery, allowing him to experiment with scraps from the forge. Aelred's talent for lock-making quickly became apparent, and by his teenage years, he was known throughout the neighborhood for his ability to create and pick locks with ease, a skill that proved both useful and, at times, troublesome.

Determined to master the art, Aelred apprenticed under a renowned locksmith, Master Corbin of Arsilet, whose reputation for crafting solid locks was well-known across the kingdom. Under Corbin's tutelage, Aelred not only honed his skills but also learned the importance of integrity and trust in their trade. These values became the foundation upon which he would build his future.

The turning point came when the warehouse of the Arsilet family was broken into, and all the goods stolen. The guard was at a loss, for the warehouse locks had been thought impervious. Master Corbin was brought in and, with some careful sleuthing, determined how the locks were bypassed (recognizing the handiwork of his apprentice in the process…). That same day, Master Corbin was retained to replace all of the locks on that warehouse (and every other Arsilet family warehouse in the city) with superior locks of his own design.

Master Corbin never came out with his suspicions, but the next day, he told Aelred that once they had finished the Arsilet replacement job, Aelred’s apprenticeship would be complete—and therefore, he should move on to another city and establish a shop there. It’s unclear where Aelred obtained the necessary funds, but at the direction of Master Corbin, Aelred set forth for New Carillon and founded "The Sturdy Lock & Key Company." Situated in the Hill District of New Carillon, his company quickly garnered attention. Aelred's dedication to quality and his innovative designs set his products apart. The company's reputation for security became such that many of the merchants in the city have sought Aelred's expertise in securing their homes and establishments.
