Lorian the Benevolent

Doomsday Dream Clan: Lorian the Benevolent Spellcaster

Lorian is acknowledged as one of the most powerful magicians of all time. He is considered the supreme magical leader of the forces of the Church of the Holy Sun. He is also the most reviled enemy of the Narayah Faithful as he has personally slain hundreds of their priests over the centuries. Lorian’s true age is unknown though written records of the Narayah Priests confirm his interference in their matters from over a thousand years ago. Other less known texts of the Church of the Holy Sun confirm Lorian was born over two thousand years ago and even at the age of 10 he had surpassed all of his teachers in the magical crafts. Many magicians have tested Lorian over the years and he has proven himself proficient in the use of every elemental magic, though he seems to prefer using the forces of Nature.

One thing is certain though, Lorian was not immune to the effects of greed and his lust for power led him into a trap a few months ago. Word had spread of a powerful magical artifact hidden in the Dark Emperor’s Tomb. Lorian quested for the artifact and eventually broke into the Emperor’s Sarcophagus, but before he could obtain the magical amulet he was ambushed by Narayah Priests and taken prisoner. Even though his imprisonment was short he was tortured and the evil Narayah Priests managed to extract a large portion of his soul and magical power.

Eventually Lorian did break free, no known force could hold him prisoner even as he had been weakened and diminished by his recent ordeals. As he fled from the Narayah Syndicate a new enemy trailed on his footsteps…

Dalamar the Corrupt Spellcaster

Doomsday Dream Clan: Dalamar the Corrupt Spellcaster

Delamar is a dark wizard and the arch nemesis to Lorian the Benevolent. As one of the most diligent acolytes of the Narayah Faith Dalamar climbed up the ranks of Priesthood in the span of just a few years. His control of the magical elements was so potent that his strength was the main factor in Lorian’s imprisonment at the Dark Emperor’s Tomb. Upon capturing Lorian it was Dalamar who took possession of the Emperor’s Amulet which opened up his mind’s eye to arcane rituals long forgotten by the mage clans. While it was Dalamar’s idea to extract Lorian’s power in order to destroy the Narayah’s ancient enemy he could not pull off the feat by himself. But with the help of the most powerful wizards of the Narayah Priesthood the ritual was deemed possible, and a decision was made to attempt the destruction of Lorian. However, as Lorian’s power was being forcibly removed from him something went wrong and Dalamar lost control of the spell. After days spent in fighting the magical torrents controlled by Lorian it became apparent that Lorian’s power was simply too great to be removed all at once. As the head of the magical circle Dalamar became trapped in the magical maelstrom and unwillingly absorbed a large portion of Lorian’s soul and power into himself. This not only damaged Dalamar’s soul beyond recognition it altered his physical appearance. Lorian managed to escape the scene before anyone else came to. He left Dalamar alive, sensing that killing Dalamar now would probably result in his own death as well. When Dalamar and the surviving priests came to there was much confusion. Due to Dalamar’s physical changes the surviving priests thought he was an enemy and attacked him. Dalamar dispatched his attackers but his rage was not sated in the slayings of the remaining priests. Within him two souls were fighting for power and neither could gain advantage, black madness descended upon him and he lost control of himself.

As Lorian fled from the Narayah Syndicate it was Dalamar who followed him and as his newly acquired powers uncontrollably bled into the world. Despite all the efforts Lorian took to hide his trail he could not shake the abomination which was inexplicably drawn to him. Death, chaos and destruction trailed behind Dalamar and his madness spread like a disease through the Narayah Priesthood and their followers. This was the prelude to, and the ultimate cause of, The Greatest War.

As years and decades passed some level of sanity returned to Dalamar, but only because Lorian’s essence and soul prevailed in the struggle between the two aspects. As the Greatest War ended with the near destruction of all civilization Dalamar became coherent enough to abandon the persuit of his arch-enemy. Dalamar’s own soul remained strong within though, and it’s embers could easily be kindled into a blazing inferno at a moment’s notice.
