Empyrean Shadow War

  • Reports from Daralet of people, especially children, simply disappearing begin to trickle in to the Imperial capital of Tentael. As these reports and stories spread, the populace in neighboring villages become terrified. Emperor Caerlin sends forces to the borders of the Empire to investigate. Lord Atlan and Lord Loritane are amongst those who do not return.[5][1]
  • When Ilservian Palacost's forces assault the Empire's holdings on the Haebrous continent, the Yalaini forces lead a desperate retreat from the Haebrous lands. As the remnants of the Yalaini armies try to board ships bound for the Yalaini archipelago, Emperor Caerlin I and his Heiromancer guards challenge another Shadow general, Omadin.[3] Omadin lead an assault on the Yalaini rearguard, scattering it like chaff and scything through the weakly defended trains.[6] Emperor Caerlin I and his forces jumped into the breach, and there fought in single combat against Omadin.[6] Seeing his defeat imminent, Omadin called to himself the Black Madness[6] and summons a cloud of Black Breath to his defense.[3] Omadin was defeated and slain, but not before he infected the emperor with the Black Madness at the very moment his head was released from his body. [6][3]This poisons Caerlin, causing him agonizing pain, and in the coming years the pain increases as the patch grows and covers more of his arm, eventually driving him mad.[3][7]

He is 773 years old. His son, Durglen, ascends to the throne and takes the Imperial name of Emperor Caerlin II. [3][1]
