The Hero is an unnamed, ordinary, man of no spectacular skill or power who had his twin sister Kira/Kyra taken captive by Gandohar twice. The first time his sister was taken the Hero was misled by Gandohar into unknowingly doing his bidding. The two eventually fought and the Hero emerged victorious, choosing to spare and rule alongside Gandohar who later became the emperor of Antaloor. After two years the Hero started making plans to over throw Gandohar but was imprisoned and tortured for the next five years when his treachery was discovered.
Kira/Kyra was taken captive again by Gandohar for five years as he attempted to seal away the fire god Aziraal using Kyra as a vessel. The Hero had his life force transferred into Kyra by Gandohar to act as a temporary seal until he had what was needed to permanently seal Aziraal away. The Hero managed to escape Gandohar’s dungeon, becoming the first person to do so with the help of the last remaining orcs of Gor Gammar. With the aid of Cassara he made his way back to Gandohar’s castle for a final confrontation only to find Gandohar in an incredibly weakened state as he used his own life force in the Hero’s absence to act as a seal. Kyra then reveals that she was not completely held against her will and the true enemy, Cassara wishes to see Aziraal freed upon the mortal world. After Cassara is defeated and Aziraal sealed away Kyra becomes the new empress of Antaloor with no word of the Hero’s current condition or whereabouts.
Shortly after the Hero’s escape from Gandohar’s dungeon while traversing the savannah he was contacted and captured by the renowned pirate Captain Edwin Teal who took him to the Ublaryak Archipelago. After hearing of the Hero’s past exploits Captain Teal thought he’d be the perfect person to help reunite his body and soul while uncovering the secrets of the legendary Ublaryak Archipelago treasure.
In a conversation with Nanook Kanga the Hero reveals he never knew his father and Kyra once gave him a cactus that he regularly spoke to.
