I just started playing this game after taking advantage of the GOG discounted offer.

I know that Dark Eye has a history of other games, but I feel like I've been dumped in the middle of a story... Is there another game or novel that explains Geron's back story or am I missing something?

Take the academy of magic... Geron says something like "I'm not going to try sneaking back in there again."

Anyway just thought I'd ask... Just a horrible feeling I get like I'm missing half the story, like sitting down to watch a movie after it's already been on for 30 minutes.
Geron occasionally makes references to his past life, but there isn't a prequel to the game and Chains of Satinav is the first game of it's series. It has later sequel called Memoria, which will continue Geron's story.
