User Summary

The Arisen lost their parents when they were very young and grew up with their childhood friend Quina in the small fishing village of Cassardis. Quina saw the Arisen as a hero for defending her from bullies. Many years later when the dragon attacked Cassardis the Arisen did not hesitate to attack. This impressed the dragon who then proceeded with making this person his chosen which involved tearing out and devouring their heart.

Through this the Arisen has no heartbeat, is immune to disease, and does not age but can still die. The Arisen is the only person who can slay the dragon and prevent the destruction of the world. Upon confronting the dragon the Arisen is given the option of facing the beast in battle to reclaim their heart or to offer up their loved one in return for power and the continued peace of the world. The Arisen chose to battle the dragon making them the first Arisen in approximately a century to have chosen to do so. After defeating the beast all existing Arisens regain their hearts and accumulated years resulting in either old age or death. This event opens the Everfall beneath Gran Soren destroying part of the city and unleashing monsters upon the world. Horribly aged and bitter at the Arisen for returning his heart the duke of Gransys Edmun Dragonsbane declares the Arisen a traitor claiming they took the dragon’s bargain and did not slay it.

The Arisen entered the Everfall and returned peace to the land by overcoming the trails there. This in turn allowed the Arisen to meet the god of the world who offered the Arisen the choice of facing him in battle for his position as Seneschal or to return to their village, give up adventuring, and have a quick but peaceful death. The Arisen chose to face the Seneschal who was delighted to be replaced by another. The Arisen later took his/her own life with the blade Godsbane so that the world would no longer have a “god”. At that instant the Arisen’s faithful “pawn” who had traveled with them since the start of their journey gained part of the Arisen’s soul, a process called Bestowal of Spirit. They became human, took on the Arisen’s appearance, and went on to live out their own life in the world.

Character Quotes:

"If you sought to live, you had naught but run and hide yourself away. But then, tell me, child of man… What dose it mean to live, in truth?" –The Dragon

"Some welcome the end with arms outstretched, while others come to face death incarnate, arms in hand. Still my heart and you stay the coming end. Another path before you… Is to offer up that which you hold most dear. Wealth and power are sweet anodyne for heartache. You’ll not gainsay my terms are more than generous." –The Dragon

"Arisen! You have earned back...what is yours...your life belongs now to no other. You've won it by rights...it is yours to use or cast away as you see fit. Remember that..." –The Dragon
