I live in a bank in the middle of the wild forest and I hold power over men and beasts.
When a man comes looking for employment, I put him in charge of feeding all the animals in the forest. Then I have some sport with him. I lock the beasts in the stable, turn the man into a nice juicy bunny rabbit, and set him loose in the forest. He has to run from every hunter and his pack of dogs.
At the end of the year, I'll pay him, and pay him well. If he survives!
