Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.
Haim (rhymes with aim) and Keme (Kee mee) are minor characters that we meet when Kelvaras makes it to the Underground City of Apos.
Originally Haim, Keme and Kelvaras were best mates. All had been trained on their home planet of Atrua and served the regulation 5 years. When they left, all three burned with desire for adventure, and unsure what to do, they decided to become Bounty Hunters. Haim and Keme, are brothers and are a tight unit. Kelvaras was the brains behind their operation. He was the one that found the most lucrative jobs to go after and he often assisted in the arrests.
Unfortunately one day, a prisoner, realising that Haim and Keme lacked serious intelligence, managed to convince them that Kelvaras was fleecing them most of the bounty. They were seriously peeved at Kelvaras who had a hell of a time trying to convince the two thickset brothers that wasn’t the case. In the meantime the prisoner escaped and all three were liable for the funds. Kelvaras, smart as he was, had saved some money, so he paid his share. Haim and Keme thought that Kelvaras had used their money. A vicious brawl broke out, none of the participates were left without physical scars for this falling out. Since them, whenever Haim and Keme see Kelvaras, they try and extract their money from him… physically.
