Abalach-Re, Uyness of Waverly .
Title: "Orc Plague"
Cleansing Time: 889 years
Info: Sorcerer Queen of Raam.
Appearing to be of age 16, small of stature.
Described as ivory-skinned beauty, with peaked eyebrows and huge dark round eyes.
Narrow nose ending in a sharp point, full libs as red as rubies, and a slender chin.
Charming in her way, playing the part as a spoiled teenager, or an incompetent leader of Raam.
Catching most off guard, mistakin her for week willed and unfocused.
Witch is far, far from the truth.
She is devious, holds grudges longer then any.
She was the mastermind behind Dregoths fall.
Patience is probably her weak spot, she knows this and tends to find, adviser's or husband's threw the ages, whom can quill this problem, and hold her back.
A debate on Abalach-Re as a ruler
The Grand Vizir of Raam and her late husband's.
Referred to as, Bala or Belle, in "Abalach-Re Returns"
The Vizir has priests, known as saddhus, priests of Badna.
We know that in the center of Raam, you find the Square of Bada, we also know there is a giant statue here of him, we know the city has many shires attributet to this creature.
Four-armed male dressed in a long loincloth.
That's what we know about this entity, mentioned.
But who or what was Badna?
Was he just imaginary, was or is he real?
Here is my take on that. It's a first run threw, so I will make some brush ups later.
That night the star konstallation of Pyrus the Wheel, shone brightly, on the Athasian western hemisphere.
On a small cliff above the flat grasslands, stood a singular large tent.
Below the cliff hundreds of others were scattered.
Most of the camp was silent, there were many small campfires, some of them still weakly glowing. Few guards were scattered around.
This was far from enemy lines, most of the hardend veterans slept deeply, for the first time in months.
In the tent on the cliff, a slender woman sat.
In front of her was a small platter, containing a bowl of steaming untouched limsan tee.
Her silk cloating blew slightly in the breeze.
She looked no older then one in her mid teens.
Unyess sat there in total silance.
After all.. everything had come to this..
What was there left to say, or even do.
Everyone one she loved, was gone or changed forever.
The messenger said, they had been to late...
No one escape Waverly alive.
Every child, mother and grandfather was burned to the crisp.
She remembered Rajaat's promise.
" Take care of the quest Uyness, I will se to your family. "
It had all been empty lies, as desolate as the heart in her brest was now.
She looked down at the beautiful weaven carpet she sat on. Wondering if she ever could find the will and strength to rise again.
She had been the target, of many spells in her time as Champion.
Non of them could compare to this.
Then she spoke.
"When I was younger of life then today,
I decided to leave this city.
It seems ages ago now.
Father wanted me to merry that old Prince in Waverly.
I would have become one of his harem, you know I couldnt go thew with that.
I regret many things, but I will never regret sneaking away that night.
The breeze and Guthays purple shimmering light, was the first feel of freedom I ever had.
I did not ask you to follow me..
But I knew you would brother.
You always stood up for me, took my fights.
I did what I wanted, never thinking anything thew.
You were always there to catch me, give everybody a beating, even though, it was I that deserved it.
I am spoiled, and it's partly your fault, I ended up that way....
But this here disaster is my doing.. Do you understand? !
They are all dead, everything we new and loved is gone!!
We have only us..and I don't even recognize whom we are anymore."
She sat quietly for a moment, desperatelly trying to gather the pieces of sense still left.
"You follow me, you new it was the only caravan that left the city that night
Did father put you up to it?"
The large man in the corner of the tent didn't move.
She new, he couldn't answer, maby he still understood. Sometimes she hoped he didn't.
If she could, she would grant her big brother that mercy.
She drew her hand across her big brown eyes, and continued speaking into the night.
"How we ended up at the tower, I don't really know Badna.
It was something new, a promise of making something out of life.
I really believe Rajaat saw something in me, that I had potential.
She shook her head, and pulled the scarf over her coal black hair.
"Yes, he saw something in me, but what he saw was not talent or a lost daughter, he saw a monster.
Yes Badna, he saw the monster inside me, and used it, brought it out.
When you got hurt on that carru horn, his accursed tower transformed you, into an awful creature too.
People don't know differently, but I know that's not what's inside of you.
Looking up from the carpet, Unyess glanced at her brother. He had follow her threw the Cleansing, taken blows for her all the way to this day.
Many Orc's had met their end, at the point of his battle picks.
There wasen't much to recognize of man he once was.. maybe something in his eyes, something in his pose, and then again protective of her as always.
The large beasts four arms, were folded across its hyde breast.
It's face resembling that of a bull Carru showed no expression,.
The beast stood there in silence for some time.
Suddenly it moved to the tents opening, and vanished into the night, not looking back.
She gathered all her power and screamed.
"Come back Badna, Rajaat promised to reverse the transformation the pristine tower made!"
She knew that promise, was a lie now, she also knew Badna did not care anymore.
Her words felt like they were crumbeling in her mouth.
"Don't leave me brother, I need you."
Uyness never saw him again...

Title: "Goblin Death" the 14th Champion, The old spider. Harold & Lama of the eastern mountain people. First Founder of the righteous cleansing flame.
Cleansing Time : 822 years
Sorcerer King of Eldaarich. Descended into insanity and paranoia.
Silt's Reverence (Free Year -1469)
Daskinor Goblin Death slips into insanity following this year's levy, and builds an army to slay the Dragon upon his return the following year. Borys learns of his plot, and not needing the levy to maintain Rajaat's prison never returns.
Daskinor mind was eroded by his struggle against the taint. He began having delusions and in the end used magic and psionics to allow strange aberrations into Athas.
Keltis, High-King of Kurn tried to help his brother, but could not.
Fearing Daaskinor's abominations would siege the other cities Keltis drew his own Periphary between the cities of the north and the cities of the Tablelands, thus Kurn and Eldaarich became the Lost Cities of the Forgotten North.
Keltis, the 10th Champion: Lizard Man Executioner. He believed his cleansing to be successful but tribes of lizard men were secretly hidden by the Mind Lords.
Oronis the Avangion (LG male Champion of Rajaat stage IV avangion, preserver 5/shaper 5/cerebremancer 10/loremaster 3/avangion 5) guides the paths of the twin cities. Oronis spent centuries redeeming himself, going so far as to change his very nature from evil to good, though he still feels he has a long way to go to make up for his acts as a Champion of Rajaat and a sorcerer-king. For this reason, he has dedicated himself and his citizens to working toward the eventual restoration of all Athas. While in Old Kurn, Oronis wears the guise of a normal human. In this psionically and magically induced disguise, he appears as a tall, lanky, middle-aged man with short golden hair, pale-blue eyes, and a closecropped blond beard. He covers himself in the trappings of a sorcerer-king, wearing a golden circlet on the crown of his head and carrying an obsidian-topped walking staff. In New Kurn, however, such disguises aren’t called for. There he openly displays his true avangion form—a tall, thin, hairless humanoid with golden skin, silver eyes, and gossamer wings.
