We finally battled through the smoke and stumbled upon the flame. The sparks of creation have stirred and it only took a few embers to form this warrior group, the Mystics.
This culmination of heroes is the focus of our tales. Six of Endale’s greatest warriors encountering tremendous peril and fighting for the world around them, can our Heroes live up to their legacy?
Master Jimi – This being of extreme wisdom and knowledge has tasked himself with the recording of our groups adventures. Acting as their guiding hand, he assists our heroes with tough decisions, although, more often redirecting them toward a path rimmed with danger. Origins Unknown, his vast knowledge and personal experiences imply an ageless soul. His mastery of multi-form martial arts echoes throughout Endale by his students who have endured his mentoring. Uniquely small compared to most other races, his aged appearance proves deceivingly favorable when underestimated by his foes. Strong in both mind and matter, Master Jimi is seemingly withdrawn in his combat efforts, intensely calculating a quick and final path to his opponent’s end. In the face of a serious threat, he maintains a careless, jovial demeanor, at times infuriating his companions.
Kane – A born son of the Causean Nation, Kane has a strong passion for the sea. However, refusing to submit his efforts to a corrupt nation’s whims, he defected from the Causean Fleet at a young age, seeing no personal glory in the persecution of the weak. Ultimately leading him to the unwarranted commandeering of the Causean ship, The Mystic, he now boasts the branded title of Causean’s Most Wanted. Unlike his Causean brand, Kane is an honorable, likable man of his word. Living by a strong moral code of wine, women and song, he is rarely seen without a smile from ear to ear. With the stature of a giant, his appearance absolutely opposes his personality. Strong, yet humble, Kane is known to be the first to shed a tear for the unfortunate and strike out against an opressor. Utilizing his giant-like strength, he wields a gargantuan sword. A massive, two-handed cleaver acquired as a hero of the O’grim War, this weapon is unwieldy to most, yet he swings it as if it was a feather. Very protective of his friends and for the love of a good brawl, Kane is hasty to throw the first punch in their defense.
Priest – At home in the kingdom of Edalend, Priest is the last surviving member of the Elite Crusaders, the nation’s exclusive sect of holy soldiers. Dispatched in a last-ditch effort to fend off the O’grim onslaught, the Crusaders endured days of continuous combat until a combined force of Endale’s nations arrived to the sight of one man holding his ground. From that day forward, he can be distinguished by his brooding gaze and dark visage. Since joining our hero group, he has a renewed outlook on his purpose in this world. Incredibly tall and powerfully built, his combat tactics and military prowess are a strong asset to the group. Dual-wielding his Elite Sabers, he is one of the most deadly swordsman in Endale. Acknowledged as not being his birth name, “Priest” is a title defined by his highborn beliefs from childhood. Only his closest friends know of his true name, Marigold, but only Kane has the nerve to use it sparingly.
Mistos – Second son of the acting king of the Woodland Elves, Mistos is anything but princely in his demeanor. After breaking away several years ago from the political fallout that exiled his Uncle, Aran, the rightful king of Telanyth, it is his belief that the exile was unwarranted. Leaving little to be explained, Mistos left with his cousin, Raven, Aran’s adolescent daughter, concerned for her protection. Taking her to Master Jimi for concealment, he remained with them to assist with much of Raven’s training. Finding humor in any and all situations, he is quick-witted with obtuse jokes, impromptu songs, and the careless mockery of inadequate foes. He exhibits a strong bloodlust for battle and death, implying a strong psychologically disturbing aura about him. Only to compliment his love for combat, Mistos uses his long elvish blades with an unorthodox fighting style, confusing yet deadly. Staying close to the group to keep a watchful eye on his cousin, he has essentially developed a strong friendship with all, especially Gwynn.
Raven – The Half-Elf daughter of exiled King Aran, Raven lost many bonds to the Woodland Elf ways, letting much of her mother’s Human traits guide her. Brought to Master Jimi at a young age, she is only aware of what happened to her parents from what Mistos has told her. While studying under Master Jimi, she grew close to his only other student at the time, Gwynn. Being of Woodland Elf origin, she displays only a few common features of their race; emerald streaks of hair, green eyes and elven ears. Highly trained in unarmed martial arts, she is as deadly with a weapon as she is without. Focusing on an array of bladed weaponry, her weapon of personal choice, dual Elven axes, reflects the same weapon choice of her father, Aran. Due to her secretive past, Raven maintains an untrusting persona, often resulting in emotional confusion. The only person she trusts with no question is Gwynn, silently non-judgmental of her thoughts and dreams. Under the veil of rumors and what Mistos tells her is and isn’t true of her past, she is driven to find out the truth for herself to clear her family name.
Gwynn – Life long student and raised by Master Jimi, Gwynn thinks of him beyond a mentor. Knowing that Master Jimi is not his true father, his past and origin remain in shadow. Human in appearance, his physical traits are deceivingly superior to all other races. His strength exceeds that of the greatest Barbarians and Dwarves. His speed and agility rival that of the Elves. His tactics and strategy, although not always clear to the others, are among the greatest tacticians. Master Jimi will only admit to his being better than most, yet reserves his explanation for Gwynn’s virtue. Although youthful in appearance, he sports a mane of white hair, eyes silver like the stars and tanned skin like that of the Lith Elves. Well versed in all of Master Jimi’s fighting techniques, Gwynn could stand up to most any opposition. Like his closest friend, Raven, his past is an artifact, ancient in nature. Showing little to no emotion most of the time, he is a leader of few words, making the ones he chooses powerful and effective to all. Not knowing his official past or origin, his purpose in Endale is shrouded and unclear.
