Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Amarande fought for Karrnath in The Last War, a warrior, an honourable man and a skilled swordsman. He believed in the cause, even when rumours circulated of the use of necromancy to bolster their side, Amarande pushed it aside, believing the ends justified the means, after all Aundair attacked them first (at least that's what he was told). He slowly went down the slippery slope of justifying his nation's atrocities until he firmly became a deliverer of these misdeeds, he'd given up his soul to see his nation win. Amarande eventually led groups of the undead into the villages and towns of Aundair during their conquests, meting out slaughter on the innocent Aundairians.

It was during one of these slaughters that Amarande met his end, or should have, when a contingent of the Knights Arcane descended upon his group, an ambush! He battled valiantly, but against the spells of his enemies, Amarande was overmatched. As his world descended to darkness, his last actions were to spat blood at his foes, the enemies of Karrnath.

Amarande awoke chained in a dimly lit room, manacled to the floor and secured to the center of the room. It was an indeterminate amount of time that the necromancers had experimented with him, the pain excruciating. His tormentors refused to answer any of his questions. He only knew pain from then on, sometimes through the haze he could pick out bits of conversations. Amarande figured out that they were Blood of Vol members, and that the experiments were attempts to extend the life span of humans. (These members were from the Cult of Life)

After what seemed like an eternity, Amarande's head began to clear, the painful experiments had stopped for a while and the man had heard nothing from outside his cell for some time. After much struggling against his bonds, Amarande tore the bolt from the floor, although the manacles were still locked. The door had been left slightly ajar, not bolted as it would normally be. Not pausing to consider the implications, he burst through and jumped on the surprised guard, strangling him with his bare hands. As he crushed the life from the guard's body, Amarande's blood pumped with excitement, he felt alive, he feasted on the man's life force and felt the vitality flow through him. Amarande managed to escape the prison he was held in, a few more guards fell to his hands, but there was no real resistance, it was all too easy.

He ran far from the prison, to where the mists grew strong, afraid of pursuit, Amarande ran (unbeknownst to him) deep into the Mournlands. It was many weeks (or months?) that he alternatively hid and ran through the cursed land. The mists always permeating, they flowed into his body and mind, and soon Amarande wandered as a near mindless creature, feasting on anything he could get his hands on. Eventually he stumbled out of the Mournland into the Nightwood in Karrnath.

It was here that he met his companion, Ulvellyn, after saving the pup from the hands of a hunter looking to capture the beast to sell to House Vadalis. They quickly bonded and it was Ulvellyn that helped Amarande regain some of his senses, as they travelled the woods, hunting together, they found some of the remnants of The Last War, a group of undead clad in Karrnath gear. Together Amarande and Ulvellyn overwhelmed the decrepit skeletons, and a few treasures lay strewn about the area that Amarande acquired. That night as they camped in the area, nightmares flooded Amarande's mind. He had splintered images, a woman begging for her life as his blade descended, a group of zombies feeding on a family after breaking down their locked door as he stood by, and various other horrors of war that prevented Amarande from sleeping and he awoke in a cold sweat. The man continued having these visions as he wandered across the lands, his companion following him. Amarande saw as a group of bandits attacked a family travelling and his blood began to boil, a darkness growing inside and at first Amarande fought against the feelings. But as he watched them butcher the innocents, he knew that these men had to be punished. The duo sprang into action, Amarande realizing he could use his own unnatural vitality against his foes as he and Ulvellyn tore apart the bandits.

This night his nightmares no longer haunted him and it was then that Amarande began his path of redemption.....

Appearance Edit

Amarande Vigoth is gaunt, almost emaciated, it is a wonder that he can lift the large blade he carries, let alone move in the heavy plate that he wears. With a pale face, white hair, and dark eyes, the "man" appears more dead than alive, which would be entirely accurate. He is slightly above average in height. If one sees him without a shirt on, there is a large tattoo across his entire back, a symbol of The Cult of Life although Amarande takes great pains to cover it up. He is also not seen without his companion, Ulvellyn, a displacer beast.

Age: ???

Gender: Male

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 110 lbs.


Personality Edit

Alignment: Mostly Good

Amarande fights constantly against the bloodlust in his veins, the desire to spill the blood of those around him, friend and foe alike. Occasionally his face will contort, one of the few outward signs of his inner torment. Despite his rather appearance, Amarande is fair gregarious and friendly, although sometimes his more bestial nature breaks through, especially when battle begins. He has no mercy though for an enemy, a very draconian outlook on misdeeds.

Hooks Edit

  • Did Amarande escape or was he let go? If so, what is the Cult of Life going to do about him.
  • Amarande only remembers snippets of his life before the experiments and the mists of the Mournlands. It's likely someone's looking for him.
  • Amarande draws his divine power from the Blood of Vol cult, but he doesn't know this. If it comes to light he may be more wary of his gift

Kicker Edit

Amarande needs to find out if he still has any humanity left and struggles against the inner hunger he feels as a result of the Cult's experiments. He feels that by helping innocents he can cleanse the dark deeds from his soul (if he still has one)
