The Ages of Orden
Lord Bale, Lord of Darkness
In Death, all things are equal.
Lord Maar’s best friend and adventuring companion, Lord Bale was the first to join Maar in his war against the Fallen Gods.
Bale’s home was crushed and burnt by The Destroyer, so it was the great dragon that Bale sought out to destroy in the Siege of Heaven. With the aid of the now-Lord Maar, The Destroyer was killed in a great battle that crushed several towns and cities.
He earned the title Dragon’s Bane during the war for his swift dispatching of the abominable chromatic dragons that the Fallen Gods had created.
Bale is depicted most often as a large cloaked figure holding his famous glaive, Nightfall in one hand and the Lantern of the Dead in the other. Lord Bale views the domain of death as his alone, he despises Necromancy as he views it a stealing the dead from their eternal rest under his vigil.
As well as darkness, Bale’s domains include Death, Sorrow, Chaos and Fire.
Lord Bale abdicated his position leading the people of Dunthel after the Wyrd became a larger and larger problem on the island. Instead he gave the responsibility of leading to Lord Montu and the High Council of Dunthel. Lord Bale stepped aside and formed the Wyrd hunters. A force of elite hunters dedicated to stopping anything that crawls its way out of the Wyrd in order to protect the rest of Dunthel.
Lord Bale’s Knights are:
The Angel of Chaos, a Gnome known as Illiric before his knighting, The Angel of Chaos was knighted for their command of Lord Bale’s armies during the siege of heaven. He is now the Joint-Head of the Bright Venatori.
The Angel of Death, the only thing known about the Angel of Death is that their name used to be Mezzatron.
The Angel of Sorrow, a goliath once called Naman that earned his knighthood by dominating every single one of Lord Bale’s Grand Melee tournaments for fifteen years until he was Knighted.
The Angel of Darkness, once called Harrison the Hammer, he earned his knighthood alongside The Angel of Fire for outstanding battlefield valour.
The Angel of Fire, previously called Anthony the Anvil, he perfected the Hammer and Anvil technique to devastating effect in Lord Bale’s campaigns.
