The story begins with 6 year old Fitz being marched by his grandfather to the Farseer's army base in Moonseye, the Six Duchies outpost on the borders of the Mountain kingdom, currently under the control of Prince Verity, the second Son of King Shrewd. At the door, he is given to a soldier, who is told that he is King in Waiting Chivalry's son. The soldier brings him to Prince Verity who orders that he be given into the care of Burrich, Chivalry's own stableman and man at arms. With Burrich, Fitz journeys to Buckkeep, the place of the Farseers. In order to protect Fitz by not allowing them to be related through contact as well as through blood, his father Chivalry retire from the post of King-in-Waiting and with his wife the Lady Patience retires to the royal holdings of Withywoods before Fitz arrives. Fitz never remembers that he met Chivalry but develops an alliance with his father's brother, Verity. Chivalry's and Verity's younger half brother, Regal, despises Fitz and treats him badly when he arrives.
