Darkor is one of the ancient Picts, native to the barbaric regions where was an upheaval are never-ending. At a very young age, he learned the art of survival by developing his combat skills, but growing tired of the barbarism of his compatriots, he left to find more civilised lands. His travels led him into new adventures and he discovered new ideas and values different from those of his native regions: honesty and trust. Called on by one of his friends to go to Carpathians, he arrived just after his friend was killed by the tyrannical Garkham, lord of the region. He therefore decided to avenge the death of his friend by swearing to rid the world of the evil wizard.
