Header.pngStory

Sieg works at the carpentry that is contracted with the Gilberta Company. He is an apprentice in his second year when Lutz and Myne are six years old. With only one year left to prove himself, he desperately tries to accomplish a task that shows his value. Due to his skilled senior apprentice Ast, he feels, that he lacks the skills to complete such a task. During the last winter the foreman found an elaborate-patterned basket woven by an amateur. Now it is Sieg's task to imitate the pattern.

While he struggles to stay positive in the beginning, he finds his motivation to make a better basket, than the one models after. On one day where he weaves the basket in the back of the workshop while Ast is working on his project a rich looking customer comes to the workshop. He has two children with him in raggedy clothes like the ones Sieg wears. The foreman leaves the store with them, without Sieg being able to see the customers. As he is still an inexperienced apprentice he is not allowed to deal with customers, besides some regulars. In fact, those people were Mark, Lutz and Myne who ordered the screen for the suketa.

Sieg has finished his basket and proudly shows it to the foreman. He takes it with little reaction and sends him on an errand, which leaves Sieg disappointed. His errand would lead him to the thread store's owner which he knows by now from running errands. They chit chatted a bit when Sieg arrives to get the spin thread. Sieg tells him about his fear about his contract. The thread store owner points out his impolite language and motivates him to keep on. With new found motivation he walks back and decides to ask the foreman for a new task. He assigns Sieg to make the suketa screen order he recently received. The prepared material looks carved by an amateur.

Motivated he begins his work and eagerly adjusts the brought material with his foreman approving any step. After the foreman finishes his own work, he joins in with Sieg. Sieg is impressed by the foreman's skill, seeing worlds between them. His foreman gives him some hints and advises while they work together. At the end, Sieg matched the foreman's rhythm; unlike from the beginning, when he needed more time to finish one part. While Sieg talks about his ambitions to become a real craftsman, the foreman complimented Sieg's basket and voiced his acknowledgement, that Sieg is already a pretty good craftsman[4].

Along with his other brothers Sieg occasionally does little tasks for Myne and Lutz for some extra pocket money, like carving the wooden parts for hairsticks or engraving illustrations that Wilma drew on wood. Though the latter does not work very well due to them not having the fitting tools and their regular knives not allowing them to be precise enough.

Myne and Lutz visit with Benno when Benno went to order his diptych[5]. He is surprised seeing Myne and when seeing Lutz acting like a merchant he becomes angry.

  • In other translations, his name is spelled "Zeg", but the official LN translation went with "Sieg".
