Rasalvian Blood Knight
Jarak stands at 5’8" in height and 150 lbs. He may be on the smaller side, but he makes up for it in speed. With a flash of steel Jarak will cut through his enemies as though they were standing still. Jarak wasn’t always a blood knight of Rasalvia. for many generations his forefathers served to one day have a member of their household to be granted the honor of becoming a blood knight. a draw back to this gift of honor is that a member of your own household must give their life so that yours may be extended. When Jarak’s family was approached and informed that Jarak would be granted to the role of Blood Knight their family long debated about who would give themselves for the family. The debate was climaxing and an uproar ensued. Out of the corner of the doorway Jarak’s little sister Helena came forth and volunteered. She was a sickly child and knew that she may not last another winter.She always looked up to Jarak, who always worked so hard for her and her family. Now he had the chance to help their entire people as did she. By doing this she knew that her life would have served a purpose that would be seen for generations. The family fell into a hush as she spoke about her decision. Jarak’s family grievously accepted her simple yet powerful wishes.
Jarak and Helena then went to the ritual site to indite Jarak as a Blood Knight. Helena was placed upon the alter. Before she had finished laying down he beckoned Jarak to her side. She handed Jarak a talisman made of black onyx embedded into silver. She had spent the last few nights making it as a gift for Jarak. As she handed it to hm she wispered, “Please, don’t ever forget me.” Jarak placed it upon his neck and the Ritual then commenced.
Now Jarak has officially been enrolled as a Blood Knight. for the next 2 years Jarak had spent his service in training. going with other Blood Knights on missions but never allowed to be involved, only to observe. His skills were not yet advanced enough and needed time to adjust to the differences his body had taken on. during this time, strange happenings were enveloping over the land of Rasalvia, churches to Pelor. Soon people began to rally in protest to the vampiric ways. saying it was wrong and no life was worth living as a vampire or blood knight. small militias began to form. The Geniat family who watches over the Raselvian peoples and whom Jarak was serving could not turn against their own, but something had to be done. Rumors of a special weapon was circulating. Jarak had been selected for this mission. A member of the Geniat family, Raelnor, was in charge of the operation. the two of them and two others were sent in to either capture the weapon, or destroy it. The Militia was stationed at an entrance to an old mine that was currently not in use due to constant cave ins. Mines however are built with redundancies to help miners get to safety. knowing this the team of blood knights went through an alternate entrance coming in through the rear of the militia’s operation. They were going to reveal the weapon to the peoples of Raselvia that day. moving into the mine as forms of mist they sneak to the entrance. the notice four guards, eight priests, two paladins, and a ferocious creature called a Quetzalcoatl. The team moves in, Jarak takes first point and in a flurry of wind and steel dispatches two of the four guards. the rest of the team begins to mesmerize the group, even the Quetzalcoatl. but before the trance could take effect, the creature removed a large shroud and a gigantic shield was revealed. Beaming from it a holy light came forth. Jarak’s eyes and mind hurt from the exposure. Suddenly the priests removed their cloaks and weapons covered in flames emerged. A serious battle had erupted. before long the hypnotism took effect and the Quetzalcoatl was under the spell of one of the team members. he ordered it to place the drapes back onto the shield. Raelnor then decided that it would be best to grab and go. Dashing into the middle of the frenzy he snatches the Shield and vanishes into the mist. the rest of the group follows. Jarak staying behind as the rest of the party escapes then burst into a flurry of bats and disappears into the cave. The mission was a success.
