The Arisen-0

Land and skies... and seas yearn!... finish the cycle... of Eternal Return.


Formerly a young, ordinary person living in the fishing village of Cassardi, The Arisen was born with willpower greater than that of any other person. The dragon, Grigori, took notice, and attacked the village, so as to draw forth the young man and awaken him as The Arisen by ripping out his heart and devouring it. The Arisen, having survived through a combination of miracle and sheer force of will, would proceed to journey forth to defeat the dragon Grigori, and in doing so both reclaim his heart and save the kingdom of Gransys in which he lived. This, in turn, led to the Arisen being taught the true nature of The Eternal Cycle, his role in it, and the nature of the whole of the world.
