Hill was a member of the acrobatic troupe Dove and Hat, which often held performances in the inner city area of the king's city. The troupe had only one female, thus she was courted by everyone, but eventually she married him. After not long, they were able to save up enough money to buy a house in the inner city area.
Their happy life was destroyed by Timothy Wimbledon's witch hunt operation, which was started soon after his coronation. His wife was arrested by mistake by Langley's subordinates. By the time Hill was allowed to take her he found her dead, covered in scars and bruises.
In the end, the warden, the castellan and the guard were sentenced to 10 lashes and a fine of 25 silver royals each, while he received a compensation of three gold royals. However, this punishment wasn't enough and acceptable to Hill. He appealed to the highest leader of the patrol team, knight Weimar, but the latter explained to him that since the witch hunt was decreed by the king himself, neither he nor Minister of Justice Pilaw could help him and bring Langley and his subordinates to justice.
Consequently, Hill decided to take revenge on the new king, unexpectedly supported by all members of his acrobatic troupe. They did not possess combat expertise, wealth or men, so they started to gather intelligence about Timothy to provide it to his enemies. The troupe members quickly joined and hid themselves in various Black Street organizations.
