ravine - necryte varda by nebezial ravine - necryte varda by nebezial
varda balahadd ... his name now is a memory from heroic poems but it was he who waged the war that culminated at ravenora plains, the very war that lead to the creation of paladia alliance, and also led to the fall of the kingdom of nebezial asheri

varda was slain 212 years ago by general melchial asheri, brother to king nebezial

historians differ in the opinions as to what the purpose behind vardas war was allthough they do agree on one thing , varda wanted to release the sinner delphi bellarya

to what purpose it still remains unknown, but mere three years later king nebezial will be the one to fulfill his goal

it is worth acknowleging that never since varda has a necryte of such power emerged , unless one believes groundless rumors that a sorcerer known as the reaper of ardunat is actually none other than varda returned

people feared him for a good reason, for necrytes could do the unholy act of binding dead souls to living bodies, the dead form a pact with a necryte and become the perfect soldiers, no fear, no hesitations and absolute loyalty

but varda took it a step further, to destroy his enemies he meticulously organised kidnappings of high ranking military personells families whom he then posessed with dead souls and put on the frontline of his army

he was defeated in the end but it was a bitter victory

So wait, does that mean Melchial is over 200 Years old?

Is it right to assume that the staff Varda is holding here is the same staff that Melchial holds in Issue 1? Did he take it as a trophy when he defeated Varda?

if you read carefully  on the scene where king godwynn talks to antheus about melchial in book 1. he mentions how melchial proudly parades the staff of varda balahadd. but the whole thing will be handled in detail later on as there is importance in many many little things in issue 1 :)
