“For years the land of the Illadelphi has been shrouded in secrecy. Those lucky enough to be granted safe passage through the 5if tell stories of a malevolent guardian with terrifying strength. They say the land itself has taken on the wrath of the Tribe that once ruled it, and those deemed unworthy are met with a swift end.
This Lost Tribe was slain by the combined power of four Grand Tribes after they were deemed too powerful to live independently. Legend has it that during this massacre one warrior was away, learning the ways of peace from the grand monk Bardidhama.
Upon returning to find his homeland desecrated and his people gone, the warrior flew into a rage that summoned old and terrible forces. In exchange for the chance to avenge his people, the warrior had to make the ultimate sacrifice.
His spirit was bound to the land as an immortal protector, unable to leave the Illadel or ever find rest. In return, he was granted the power to destroy the four Tribes that took his family, his way of life, and his own humanity.
Even though the age of the Grand Tribes has passed, they say he still wanders his desolate homeland, appearing when a worthy warrior passes or evil threatens his holy ground, as he has vowed to NEVER let another dishonor his people or their land again.”
