Master Hunter Killian Tagnik'zur, King of Antrippa!
It is hard to pinpoint the true history of the devil known as Killian.
There are the memories people hold, the tales told through the lands and
the vague or brief refferences he will make himself.
One legend speaks of an young demon banished from his plane for a crime he
had yet to commit. When he entered this world it was in a disembodied state
that grafted itself to the souls of others. Many stories of demonic
possession through the centuries speak of similiarties that would lend
evidence to the legend and it's been said the devil has even confirmed it
to be the case on occasion.
A scholar who studied the ancient race once theorized that the banishment
and possesion stories while true were only a portion of the larger story.
He alleged that when he was cast out his essence was split into several
pieces, Aspects are what he called them. In this state the creature would
never become fully aware of what he truly was or even who but each piece
joined with another would remove some of the mystery.
Whatever the case of his origin it has never been disputed that he has been
a major force in Antrippa since the demon emerged and always been driven by
goals known only to him. Those closet to him will often be given a part of
his story he cherishes to know but the full story he will say must never be
Some years ago he suddenly informed his family and allies he would be gone
for some time. He spoke of a journey he needed to make a prize he needed to
claim. Before he embarked he embraced his lover Siyani and informed her
this would be the last time the demon Killian walks the lands and left
without further explenation.
When he returned he was filled with ancient power and the return of
something long ago taken from him, He became a hero of the lands after the
completion of some mysterious crusade he was set on by the black wind. With
the ancient power came the devil persona, He had spoken true before he
left. The creature that returned was far more then the demon that left and
now as a full devil he claimed to have regained all knowledge legend says
was lost to him.
After these events a new rumor was spread in darker corners of Antrippa,
The hellish plane where the once demon, now devil was born was thrown into
a brutal war and other denziens have come to see this world as a place to
gain advantage for their side. What this could mean for this world is just
as unclear as to what the demons seek within. Other rumors say a demon
captured by the kyritis empire revealed after fierce interogation that they
have come to find a king to unite them and lead them to final victory over
the forces of one known as the "Mother of all".
