Dark Seer minimap icon.png Ish'Kafel, the Dark Seer
Fast when he needs to be, and a cunning strategist, Ish'Kafel the Dark Seer requires no edged weapons to vanquish his enemies, relying instead on the strength of his powerful mind. His talent lies in his ability to maneuver the fight to his advantage. Hailing from a place he calls 'The Land behind the wall,' Dark Seer remains an outsider here—a warrior from a realm beyond the veil of this reality.

Once a great general among his people, and a valiant defender of the god-king Damathryx, Dark Seer's army was wiped out by a much larger force in the final days of the Great Boundaries War. Facing certain defeat, he made one last desperate act: he led the enemy forces into the maze between the walls. At the last moment, just before capture, he crossed over—then sealed the walls forever in an explosive release of dark energy. When the dust settled, he saw that he had saved his people but found himself blinking at the sun of a different world, with no way to return. Now he is committed to proving his worth as a military strategist, and vows to show that he's the greatest tactician this strange new world has ever seen.

Great Boundaries War

Dark Seer Artifact.png

Illus. Stepan Alekseev
The Red Mist slowly marches to Stonehall. The Bronze Legion plans an ambush in Roseleaf. But the denizens of that Vhoul city do not take kindly to occupation and have sparked an insurrection. Three factions. One battlefield. And not a strategic mind between them. I will defeat these charlatans of war. And in doing so, prove my brilliance.
