2nd: High Order
The whispering shadows of the Hell he fell to and arose back out of, still waft around the imposing Immortal before you. Dressed from head to toe in black plate armor, he has the towering physique of one who has spent every day of his existence, from early childhood to the present, in the struggle for dominance. Mortal conflicts shaped his spirit and body into a weapon, ready to be wielded against foes of every degree of expertise. Dark Suriel and Angel of the Hunt, evidence of oaths given to Kerriariadne and Katrana yet glow upon bracers worn on his wrists. Outstretched wings of black make him even more intimidating but the deep, intense blue of his aura gives an overwhelming proof of the change he has made in himself. A full-faced helm is tucked under one arm, leaving his hair to tumble down to his shoulders: a deep brown at the top fading to pale white at the ends. A narrow band of cloth covers the horror of his burned-out eyes, the pale linen taking on a multi-hued appearance from the light of an opaline spark that floats about his head. It wafts about, almost like a will-o-wisp, and as it drifts near where his eyes once were, he smiles at it, the expression transforming him from a being that causes your weakened knees to want to bend in submission to, into that a loving if firm father. He murmurs some gentle admonishment in the desert language, and then turns His attention back to you once more. As he returns your awed stare, you feel a strange tugging in your chest as if your soul itself attempted to answer His summons. He smiles, a bit more like the fanged grin of a hunting beast than that of a concerned parent, a pain briefly wracks you, and the sensation is mercifully gone... for now. Seraph is bathed in the essence of charisma. Seraph is in perfect health.

If Hell itself had a champion, it would look much like the unholy figure that towers over you. Dressed from head to toe in black plate armor, the unrelieved sable continues in the inky wings that arch upward. Weapons, shield, and armor alike bears the evidence of battle - blood dripping in a steady stream to pool at his feet. Thick shouldered, bearing the signs of two gods - Kerriariadne and Katrana - worn still around his wrists, a clearer picture of violence could not be drawn. His multi-hued hair - an uninteresting brown at the top, fading to a pale white at the ends - has been braided back, to stay out of his eyes during combat. His eyes seem unusually dark, shadowed, until he lifts his head with an evil laugh, an unopposed view granted of the burned holes that are all that remains. It is a horrifying sight and he laughs at your discomfort. His crossed arms draw your eye to the holy symbols still worn around his wrists: That of Katrana and Kerriariadne - the gods that shaped him the most strongly. As he returns your stare, you feel a strange tugging in your chest - a sense of emptiness... as if, by his presence alone, he could steal that which is most precious - your very essence. With a smirk and a flick of his fingers, he releases his playful tugging on your spirit... For now.

Character History: 11/18/2012
Seraph raises his hand and a throne of bones rises from the floor.
Seraph sits on the throne.
Samiyah startles, and takes another step backward, gasping as she hits the wall unexpectedly.
Seraph says, 'when I was a child my parents were killed. I was about 8 at the time. I took to the streets of Midgaard doing whatever I could to survive. I meet up with a man and he took me in, fed me, clothed me. Trained me in combat. But everything comes with a price. I worked for him stealing - collecting items for him '.
Samiyah nods slightly, listening.
Seraph says, 'if it wasn't up to his standards I was beaten and it was never up to his standards'.
Samiyah makes a soft sound of sorrow at the image of a starved, desperate child being beaten.
Seraph says, 'One day he told me to go collect from the weapon-smith so I did. When I got back I saw him talking with a huge ogre. I was spotted standing there and was dragged into the room. They beat me with a chain and whips until I was almost dead. They heated up a iron fork and came over to me. He said a person with no eyes has no soul for the eyes are the window to the soul - and pushed the burning rod into my eyes '.
Samiyah covers her mouth with one hand, her eyes reflecting the horror she feels.
Seraph says, 'that moment my soul left my body and I was standing before an angel. He said, ‘I feel the hate in you and I will help you'. He breathed life back into my lifeless body . He also told me how to steal souls for souls kept me alive'.
You say (in common), 'was this the 'Vir' I have read of?'.
Seraph says, 'no'.
Seraph says, 'I was not dead and I was not alive when I came back I was an angel. The first soul I ever took was Marion'.
Seraph pulls a gem from his robe. It glows bright red.
Samiyah stares wordlessly at the gem, shuddering.
Seraph tosses it to you.
Samiyah squawks and catches it instinctively.
Seraph says, 'meet Marion'.
Samiyah holds it in her hands like she would a dead, rotted thing.
Seraph says, 'he was the one who took me in'.
Tears seep from her eyes, staining her veil.
Seraph says, 'as the years passed I killed and collected souls'.
Samiyah begs softly, her voice shaking, 'Please .. please take it back.'
Samiyah extends her hands.
Seraph says, 'Then the Dark lord took me in under him I learned to harness my hate'.
Seraph opens his hand and the gem returns, absorbing into it.
Samiyah lowers her arms, unconsciously rubbing her hands against the linen of her robe, over and over.
Seraph says, 'Kerri made me a helm so I could see again'.
You say (in common), 'How? Magic?'.
Seraph says, 'he used some of his immortal powers to create it'.
Seraph says, 'I became his Ordained and fought many battles for him spilling blood of the innocent. Don’t mistake my childhood as a tale of sorrow. It is a tale of vengeance. I am thankful for Marion - he unleashed me'.
Samiyah nod slightly and asks softly, 'What of your vows to Lady Mystaya?
Seraph eyes glow bright red.
Seraph says, 'hmmmm Mystaya. I loved her but she was my weakness'.
You say (in common), 'do you have children?'.
Seraph says, 'no'.
You say (in common), 'what about your followers?'.
Seraph says, 'After many years of killing and raiding towns my time came to become a god. When I took my rightful place among the gods I was torn apart'.
You say (in common), 'emotionally or literally?'.
Seraph says, 'Both'.
Seraph says, 'I lost my way to the power. I lost my focus. The souls I collected shattered within me destroying my mind and body'.
You say (in common), 'so what is the Vir?'.
Seraph says, 'The Vir is an illusion. Something my mind created and took hold. Once the gods cast me out of the heavens I returned to normal'.
You say (in common), 'so the power of immortality was too much to bear?'.
Seraph says, 'I was not ready'.
Seraph stands up the bone throne crumbles to dust.
You say (in common), 'so if you 'returned to normal'... why do you still steal souls '.
Seraph bends down, looking you dead in the eyes.
Seraph says, 'Because I like to'.
Seraph grins evilly at you.
Samiyah cringes back, her shoulders pressed against the stone wall as if to hide within it.
Seraph says, 'I want chaos and death. I want to stop as many people as possible from entering the heavens'.
Samiyah asks softly, 'Why? Does it make you feel better?'
Seraph says, 'yes it does'.
Seraph hand glows red. As he holds it close to your face, you can feel your soul slipping away.
Seraph pulls his hand away.
Samiyah reaches up and grabs a small, hand-made charm in her hair, and says quickly, 'Away with you!'
Seraph says, 'see, Samiyah? I can collect anytime. But I like you'.
You say (in common), 'Why do you want me to write about you?'.
Seraph says, 'why? Because you are skilled. People listen to you'.
You say (in common), 'Why do you care if people know your story? You hate them all..'.
Seraph says, 'everyone wants to be remembered. I don't hate you. That's why I will not take your soul'.
You look at Seraph.
Seraph says, 'You don't like me very much do you?'.
You say (in common), 'I think the soul is the only thing in life that is truly ours…. and that you would steal that, take it… I cannot fathom.'.
Seraph says, 'nothing is truly yours'.
You say (in common), 'I do not know _you_.. I do not like what you _DO_ You choose to be an instrument of pain. I don't understand that desire.'.
Seraph says, 'you choose to be a instrument of life through song. Same difference'.
Samiyah adjusts her veil to hide a smile, and murmurs, 'Though, to Anduin, one is as evil as the other.'
Seraph says, 'there you have my story'.

Player Provided Information:
|While I never got the opportunity to interact with Seraph while he was an active mortal or FLI, I have really enjoyed the creativity and conflict that he brings to my RP as a Retired Immortal. No story is exciting without danger and villains for the heroes to strive against - and Seraph is an excellent 'bad guy.' I look forward to seeing how our shared RP storyline continues and grows.|
|In the year span since my last post, Seraph was restored to the Heavens as an FLI, and led the High Order for nine months. It was my pleasure to be his first follower and to work with him to develop the following. He continued to provide some really awesome and some really agonizing RP during that span, and was the Good that folks loved to hate.|

Riordan says (in common), 'and as dependent as i am on my temporal possessions and the lyricals i've acquired, he makes me itch'.
