Look who's back and better than ever.
Name: Garret Lucina
Occupation: The Guardian/Chaos Servant
The Armor of Contempt - An ancient suit of armor forged from black iron ensorcelled to protect the wearer from elemental magic. The armor shapes itself to comfortably fit each new master and manifests a robe and hooded cloak about itself once worn.
Casual Wear: Dark-colored robes with golden lining.
Facially, he has retained his sharp features and cold, blue-grey eyes. However, he has gained a series of glowing runes about his cheeks and forehead since taking on his new role.
Personality: Garret remains the determined and courageous man he was. His new found role in life has given him a slightly broader perspective of the world, but he remains a rough-edged, blunt man who still has a good heart underneath a slightly spiky exterior. With his ties to country and family severed, he looks to his position to give him renewed purpose and vigor in all parts of life.
Bio: Born to a family with a rich history of military and religious service, Garret was introduced into the arts of battle once he was able to walk and talk. It was clear to him early on that his path would either take him to the Cathedral or the battlefield. A young Garret chose military life over that of a priest, even though his younger brother would go on to become an Inquisitor. His natural talents for fighting and willingness to follow orders saw Garret become an officer by the time he was twenty-eight.
After the massacre at the Grey Plains and the turmoil of Byzanthea, Garret vanished for half a year. His visions and dreams grew stronger, leading him to the ancestral burial grounds of the Lucina family. Within the great crypt, he found what the stranger in his dreams had once spoken of: the choice to help the world or set it ablaze. Not being one to take an easy path, Garret chose what was to him the only right path. He claimed both the Armor of Contempt, the ancient black iron armor of The Guardian, and the Fury Sword, a black iron sword wielded by long-dead Servants of Chaos.
He took the Guardian’s Oath, severing his ties to his nation and family in order to serve the greater good of the world. He diligently trained to master both the armor and sword, finding that the armor granted him several old defensive spells and a collection of arcane projectile spells. He discovered that the Fury Sword only truly came to life in battle, glowing with an inner flame and almost guiding his arm to killing blows.
When he returned home, he discovered Tristan’s Ishtaria. Still feeling torn between Guardian and Chaos Servant, Garret made the choice to join his former companions after reasoning that Ishtaria may be the best hope to save the land from the corruption of the Empire and distrustful nature of the Colonies.
