The purpose of the Nightbringers is ill understood. Most believe they are a guild of elite assassins in the Taedron's service, acting under the Ruling Council's direct orders.
What many do not realise is that though the Nightbringers' main purpose is the protection of the realm, their service is not bound to whoever rules Setharil. Many in the order itself tend to forget this crucial fact. Conflict over whether they should be independent has sparked many a schism and shadow war between the clans.
Asheldar never had a decided opinion on the matter. He was trained from a young age by both the Seer Council and the Nightbringers. His role within the clan was to handle threats of a magical nature and follow the lahar's orders. Although made Kel'haril on account of his birth, he never expected to actually be placed in a position of leadership.
Yet that is where he found himself after Master Arreth's untimely demise and the disappearance of his successor. Unprepared and unfit he may be, the duties of lahar, leading one of the thirteen Nightbringer clans, fall upon his shoulders.
Though trying his best, the elf constantly struggles with the responsibility and believes he is ultimately doomed to fail.
Until he is replaced however, Asheldar is adamant to at least find some semblance of an answer behind lahar Arreth's death. Investigating the event brought the clan to Velanir and made Asheldar come to some disturbing conclusions. Were his suspicions to prove true, the Nightbringers, and therefore the entire realm, was in grave danger.
To be certain however, Asheldar must first find someone.<< Back
