The King's Men...
Darius Rolthain, Champion Of Man
Years ago, The Old gods needed to destroy the Demon that was reaping the realm. Cults of the Demon only fueled its power, the gods were thwarted by the demon-god’s bloodlust. The Prophecies spoke a chamion that wielded that gods upon his frame, who would strike the demon down.
The Old Ones reached out to Darius Rolthain to Slay the Demon. The gods transformed themselves in some cosmic alchemy int various pieces of armor for the champion and he took to the beast and slew it and locked it into a rift between the material realm and the realm of chaos. Just before the rift closed it was there were greed had plague the mind of the man. It was then when he started to cast the godly artifacts into the rift with the demon-god.
The Champion of man fell from the heavens into the sound outside of Evervale, the elven city. He was praised as a hero, and convinced the realm the gods, were dead and was told to “live on as they would and to rule for man.”
