Knight of Shadows
The Knight of Shadows was once a human mercenary named Vargas Brightsun. Vargas, youngest son of Vyr, Thane of the Southern Lands.
In 315 EW, Vargas set out on his own, seeking fame and fortune. Abandoning his ancestral homelands in their time of need, Vargas escaped being drafted into the Adrellish Army, who was sent to the South to deal with The Tide’s looming presence.
During his time in the wilds, he was ensorcelled by the snake demon Sliniss’Khan, who tricked Vargas into opening The Paths, demonic passageways linking various planes of existence. During one of his forays through The Paths, Vargas acquired three demonic talismans. One gave him control over fire, one gave him mastery over death, and the third gave him the ability to fly.
Sneaking into Druith’kan, Vargas forced a master smith to meld the talismans into a black suit of armor.
Thus was born the Knight of Shadows.
