After graduating second in his class at the Studium, Papalymo came to study under the famed Louisoix Leveilleur, and distinguished himself as a model student whilst aiding in his master's endeavors. Indeed, it was thanks to their tireless efforts that a group of Ala Mhigan refugees was granted sanctuary in the Sharlayan colony some twenty years past. It was during this time that Papalymo met Yda, and the two established a rapport. When Yda later expressed her desire to liberate Ala Mhigo, Papalymo introduced her again to Louisoix, which led to her induction into the Circle of Knowing. Since then, the two Archons have come to work together as a team—often bickering like an old married couple.
