View Full Version : Bonus biography: Akane, Caller of Memories

10-02-2013, 03:11 PM
Akane was born on one of the major islands of the Lotus Empire and lived the first decades of her life below and above the waves looking for her brother who had no sense of direction. It was after one of her escapades that she was found by her family, her brother gone, and with no memory of what had happened during the last week of her life. Driven to discover what had happened to herself and her missing brother, she sought the help of Naga Water Seers to look into her mind and uncover her elusive memories, alas, to no avail. She was given leave by her Daimyo to embark on a journey to discover the whereabouts of her lost brother.

Travelling first to the underground cities of the Dark Elves, she was helped by the Faceless to recover a good part of her memories, glimpses of Merfolk and a Dark Wizard, her brother screaming as he was dragged away. They also explained to her that some sort of Void artifact had been used to erase parts of her memory permanently. It was powerful magic, forbidden even amongst the Faceless. They suggested a magic that might help her, but that could only be learned in the Seven Cities. With the power of Air, it is possible to recall certain events that are forgotten by our own minds but remembered by the Winds. The Sheriffs of the Seven Cities use it often, especially when various witnesses have different versions of the same story.

Akane left the Dark Elves to travel to the Seven Cities, and was received after a long journey and longer wait by the Sheriff Asalah, who was moved by her plight. She led her to the Wind Whisperers, Wizards of Air from House Anima, but even they were unable to elucidate her mystery. However, Akane’s story reached the ears of the ruler of House Anima, High Wizard Gazal, who decided to take the young Naga under her wing. Gazal offered Akane to lead her training in the magical arts of memory calling, where her natural affinities for Water mixed with a reinforced education in Air might indeed prove a valuable mix.
Akane went on to become a powerful Memory Wizard of House Anima, and was often consulted by Asalah, recently appointed Head Constable to the Council of Nine. Akane helped her solve countless difficult criminal cases.

Awesome piece of background!! It helps to feel that your heroe is more than a plain card. I encorage you to do it weekly, a tasty small bio of the other heroes, to expand the world of the game and ogive an enhanced value to the game. For me this helps a lot to improve the game.

Speaking of which, is there any backstory behind the base heroes?

Well, I asked last year... the answer is yes and no.

They planified some backstory for all the heroes... but didn't have enough time to present it appropriately, at least up until now.
