LOMP origins: the beginining.
Theon "Demonslayer" the Responsible
Human Cleric, Follower of Koras
Theon lived his early life in the isolated, small village of Vasque, housing roughly a hundred humble souls. The people of Vasque made their living of farming the fertile grounds around their home and sheltering travelers in their little inn, that where on their way to greater cities. Around the time Theon was 10 years of age, a strange, old man came to their village. He introduced himself as Adam Winslow and said he was fleeing from a war torn region of a far away land. His scars and bad physical condition underlined his words and so the people of Vasque patched up his wounds, gave him a room in their inn and fed him for a week or so, as they were good people and taking in refugees was nothing new or debatable for them. However rumors about old Winslow’s weird behavior spread quickly through the village and people became suspicious of him, for he was secluding himself in his room as long as the sun was shining and only set foot out the door when night was already upon this place. Theon and a few of his child friends, wanting to test their bravery, made a game out of following and observing old man Winslow through the moonlight. He was always only strolling around the village, but on the seventh night after his arrival, a night of full moon, he was drawing weird lines in the ground and the children became anxious so they ran home and called upon their parents. Suspecting danger, the adults of Vasque made haste to confront the old man in the middle of the village and it was there that he was revealing his true intentions: He was a practitioner of the dark arts and set up a ritual to sacrifice their whole population to his fiendish lord. Before they could intercept his evil doings he already began to cast his dark magic filling the air with vile energy. A greenish glowing portal started to form before him. A horrifying stench billowed out from it that decayed every flower, grass and the ground itself around it. But the real nightmare began as unspeakably abominations and demons started to emerge from the unnatural rift in space and time. Just as all hope seemed lost, a battalion of korasites rode onto the scene to rescue the villagers. Judging by the look in Winslow’s eyes, these were the people he was fleeing from. An epic battle erupted between the dark magic wielder accompanied by his demon followers and the shining men and women devoted to Koras. In the midst of the fight, Theon saw his own father being slain by a demon and as another demon was about to reduce little Theon to a pile of ashes with it’s fiery breath his own mother clenched her body around her son to shield him with her own life. The battle was drawing on for hours. One after another fell, was it demon, korasite or villager. As dawn was about to set, the whole village of Vasque was no more and only a handful of korasites, including the grandpater Donius, were left after slaying the last demons. Counting and mourning their lost brother’s and sister’s in faith and the fallen villagers, Donius found little Theon hiding under the burned corpse of his mother as the only surviving villager of the event that was later known as the “Vasque Massacre” in the korasites history tomes and tales. Feeling a great pity for him, Donius took the boy with him to the monastery of Adarn the Gold Heart, where he raised him in the teachings of Koras as he would have his own son. Theon later learned that the man responsible for the fate of his village was a follower of Baál, an evil deity from the circles of hell and demon prince of the death domain, and that his corpse was actually never found at the end of the battle that changed his life so drastically. After finishing his basic classes as a cleric of Koras and taking upon his korasite name “the Responsible”, Theon walked out into the world to learn, aid and rescue the innocent, spread the word of his deity, purge heretics and maybe one day take revenge upon the man that killed his family.
