Triss is completely pragmatic and committed to survival. New world, new rules! She and her brother Creen are willing to do whatever it takes to come out on top. This includes harassing, raiding or even knocking out other adventuring parties for loot or rations. They were orphaned when the Blight came, then raised and mentored by a tough mercenary who deserted the fifth regiment. This mentor figure was killed after years of training them, but not before giving Triss and Creen the skills to survive. Now Triss seeks revenge upon the creature that killed her mentor.
Tek’ka has fought many years against the Blight in service of Dena, the Twin Titan of the afterlife that shepherds the good souls beyond the Shimmering Veil. In all this time, he had become convinced that the Aetheri can and must be saved, trapped as they are in eternal twilight since the destruction of the sun.
Like his sister Triss, Creen loves his life in this post-apocalyptic world. Blightfall might’ve taken their parents away, it also gave them a new life full of endless possibilities. Their method of survival might entail ambushing and robbing others, with a ‘you keep way you kill’ mentality, to them it’s a pure way of life - one that does justice to the harsh world they inhabit.
Ever since I came here, I’ve been hoping that I wouldn’t need to descend into the Blight – but it can’t be helped. My research has hit a dead end. I have to go down...
Scarlet comes from a faraway place and traveled to this land in search of a fabled Aetheri light weapon: the rumored knife Bloodslick that once belonged to a great general, but was lost when he was swarmed in the Gravemark. It is part of a set of two, the other knife already in her possession. With the combined set she’ll become more powerful than before, and one step closer to reclaiming the world for humanity.
Kromn is the last of the Sunwalkers, a nomadic tribe with a deeply held worship of the sun. Needless to say, the day it shattered so too did they. Having lost their object of worship, they fell on hard times, lapsed into despair and never recovered. Only Kromn, a young holy warrior brought up by the last remnants, was left and now roams the land. Not to spread his religion , for he has none, and neither to find new objects of worship, for he doesn’t care about the Aetheri - no, only to continue to live his simple life, a living testament to his tribe, seeking new balance with the shattered sun and the land. And all in the honor of Siurd, who supplied the tools and materials to build it. He’s come here to collect fragments of the sun, sun shards, hoping but not expecting to somehow restore it, one day.
