Character Description and History

Kage Selden was once a druid who sheperded a verdant valley to the south of Anauroch, the great desert of Faerun. Over time, he began to realize that the climate of the region was in decline. Within a decade, the beautiful shire deteriorated to nothing more than a wasteland as the desert lay claim.

Having descended from a rugged people who had earned the territory by blood, the inabitants of the valley chose to remain. Unfortunately, the decision cost them their lives, as famine and disease claimed those who had survived endless attacks by desert raiders who had followed the blight from the vast.

Kage was one of the few who survived, although his friends, family, and way of life lay still beneath the encroaching sands of Anauroch. He had only his beliefs to cling to, and could understand how the sanctity of the natural order could require the sacrifice of all he loved to endure.

After several years of wandering in the blighted land, he encountered a Bedine merchant who regaled him with tales of the exotic Phaerimm who wished to flood the Realms with sands of death. Intrigued by the idea of a magical source to the destruction, but doubting just the same, Kage gave the last of his wealth to an adventuring band for accompanying him on a half-serious expedition deep into the desert.

The group was about to turn back after several weeks of endless dunes when a solitary beast of fell demeanor slew them to a man. Before rendering a death blow upon Kage, the creature forced the thoughts from his mind. It reveled in the pain, loss, and anguish that its kind, the phaerimm, had inflicted upon this man. Instead of slaying him, he drew the thoughts upon Kage's chest in the form of mystical images that torment him to this day.

(NOTE: When Kage is distressed or weakened by strife, he experiences the joy felt by the phaerimm at the death of his loved ones. He wishes to retain such torment, as it may lead him one day to the same phaerimm for a reckoning.)

Obviously unbalanced by this turn of events, Kage wandered the desert alone for several months. When he walked again upon healthy soil, he had abandoned the Gods of nature who, in his mind, had turned their backs upon thousands of innocents who perish at the hands of the Phaerimm to thi very day. He became a lost druid, mocking the beliefs he had clung to in any way possible.

After a decade of depravity, he was visited by a raven bearing a scroll from a druid known only as the Ravenmaster. The aging sage bid him accept the worship of Fenrys or be forever destroyed as an abomination. Feeling that the offer was reasonable under the circumstances, he accepted.

Kage soon found himself assisting a group who struggle to this day against a fell evil beneath the Thunder Peaks. He has come to lead this band, guided by the Magister and even Mystra herself, and given the name of The Sigil.



Kage is harsh, forthright, and almost mean. He will do anthing to overcome an obstacle, as he is truly a man with nothing to lose. However, he works constantly toward redemption, at least in the eyes of Fenrys. The new power has punished the priest more than once, but Kage is currently within the graces of his newfound faith.

Beneath the harsh exterior lies a person who has never lived a moment past the tragedy of Anauroch. Whenever he strikes a foe, he sees the Phaerimm and its mangled bodies who were his first adventuring band.

At times, Kage can be almost charitable - he has demonstrated a particular mercy toward children and innocents, and is often reluctant to destroy foes who have submitted.

The final fate of Kage's soul remains undecided, as retributive wrath and torment still guide his every move.
