Geordan approaches the travelling beast men from Alyser as they share the same path to the city of Dawn Port. He saw a group of three beast men riding on a carriage that is being pulled by a horse, one of the beast men is walking along with the horse, guiding it on the snowy paths to Dawn Port while the other two beast men is inside the carriage tending to their goods and navigating the horse. As Geordan approaches the beast man who is walking with the horse, “Hello there, fellow traveler. Are you all heading towards the city of Dawn Port further here?” he asked as he matches the pace of the beast man. “Aye, we are heading there to resupply and sell our wares as well, why do you ask, stranger?” questioned by the beast man who seems to have a very well-built physique that can be compared to a warrior. “I’m heading there as well, friend. I just want ask something about the city, if you would oblige?” asked by Geordan to the beast man. The beast man briefly paus
Geordan finally regains his consciousness after being bedridden for a week, thankfully, the people who saved him belong to the order that is in opposition with the vampires who were planning to capture him. They are the Dawn-bringers, an ancient forgotten who once known as heroes who dealt with the forces of darkness in the past. As soon as he woke up, Geordan was visited by the leader of the order and informs him of his current condition. “I am Dawn-Sentinel Amos Lex, the leader of the Dawn-bringers here at Skyreach. Who might you be, ser?” asked by Sentinel Amos to the Geordan as he sits up on his bed. “I-I am Geordan. Geordan Auroran, I’m a knight from the town of Faulterth, but… I don’t’ know… What happened to me?” said by Geordan as he still can’t believe all the things he experienced as if was only a dream during his long slumber. “Hmph… So, you are on your way to Faulterth then. But sadly, as for the moment, the area around the Fallkeith is under Imper
As Geordan’s life was saved by an order of warriors known as the Dawn-bringers, the two of those warriors, Inga and Thorac faces the vampires who assaulted in the middle of the misty forest that surrounds the Fallkeith territory. The other one of the Dawn-bringers named Joss is with Geordan as he is the healer of the group, in-charged of keeping Geordan from harm. As for what reason why, Geordan was attacked by these vampires is still a mystery. “Grrraaaghh! I’ll devour you!” yelled by the vampire as it dashes towards Thorac. As the vampire closes in on him, Thorac throws one of his silver hand-axe at the vampire but the vampire managed to dodge it easily, but as soon as the vampire returns its attention to Thorac. “Aaaghh! It’s a bait!” said by the vampire as Thorac managed to get close to him in instant. He then cleaves the torso of the vampire due to his successful attempt of baiting him into an opening. The vampire backs away as it suffers a very lethal wound acr
Geordan who is at the mercy of a group of vampires that ambushed him on his way to Faulterth is at death’s doorstep again as he is being by two of the vampires and heavily wounded due to the one that is on his backside. He kept trying on breaking free from the vampires’ grasp on him but due his condition, there’s no luck as those two surpasses his own strength as they combine their super-human grip on him. “It’s useless to resist, human. Now, we will see if you are the one that we are looking for,” said by the vampire who pounced him earlier as it tries get close to him as it walks towards him. The vampire grins as it shows its white-sharp fangs like he was trying to take a taste of Geordan’s blood. “It is no use! I cannot break free from them. They are too strong!” said by Geordan to himself as the vampire already within his face. “Let’s see if you are the Radiant One,” said by the vampire before it took a bite on Geordan’s neck.
After his well-deserved rest at Bardon’s inn, Geordan prepares for his journey back to Faulterth giving his gratitude for Bardon’s family for taking him in. “You my sincere gratitude, Bardon,” Geordan said as he smiled and taps the shoulder of Bardon. “Aye, don’t mention it, milord. You are a friend here as well as your good father and you are welcome here anytime,” said by Bardon as his wife and daughter nods in agreement beside him. “Yes, Ser Geordan! I hope to meet you again soon,” said by the young lady, Bretta as she bows like a female nobility, holding the hem of her dress and raised it a bit then bows. It was a bit clumsy but Geordan appreciated it as he patted her head. “You would make a fine escort one day, milady,” said by Geordan to the Bretta that made her blush because of Geordan’s compliment and embarrassment as well. “T-T-Thank you, milord!” said by Bretta stuttering. Her parents laughed out of joy seeing their daughter taking a
The remaining Imperial forces led by General Tullium that was at the Skyreach’s oldest and largest prison hold, Skyhold, took a brief and well-deserved rest as they manage to drive off the creatures of darkness that attacked them during the execution of the rebellion’s mastermind Duke Jarric Chillrend. The motive of the attack is still unknown whether it was really a plot to free the duke or if there’s really another mysterious faction who will also join in the conflict that is happening at Skyreach. As the general and his men got their brief scouting and short respite after successfully driving-out the creatures that assaulted Skyhold, they plan on making their way back to their main headquarters at the capital of Skyreach which is the city of Fortitude. As they marched on, Ser Havard and Captain Amaya invited Geordan to come along with them for the time being. “As we proceed down the river, there is a village their called Riverton, and that’s my hometown.
As Geordan looked at the man that came from Ser Havard’s back, he saw the general himself as he reaches his hand to him. “I am General Gladios Tullium, commanding officer of the Imperial army here at Skyreach. A pleasure to meet you,”Geordan then shakes the general’s hand and salutes him. “Geordan Auroran, sir! A knight-errant of Faulterth, I am also affiliated with the Imperial Academy’s Knight order,” he said as he put his fist to his chest. (Imperial knight’s giving honor to a high-ranking official of the Empire.)“Hmph… So, you’re the knight who declined the army’s offer.” said by the general as he examined Geordan.“Offer? What kind of offer is that, if I may ask, sir?” asked courteously by Ser Havard.“It’s mad why I wasn’t able to recognize you when you got dragged here at this mess. Never seen you as well the typical high and mighty attitu
Geordan’s eyes widen as he saw his companion’s appearance under her helm, the captain is indeed a Shakirian, an Imperial native who dwells in the land south of the Empire, which has been colonized by the Empire long ago up until now. They’re common traits is that they have that tan skin, with a distinguished eye colors between ruby, dark brownish tint and a dark-yellowish glow. But in her case, she has that blue eye which can be the most common thing in the Empire and Skyreach. “She’s a half-Imperial?” Geordan’s thought as he stares at the captain. “What? Is there something on my face?” asked by Amaya as she looked back at him brows raised. “U-Uh, no… Well, let us be o-off then, Captain,” nervously replied by Geordan as he turned his gaze back. “No. I said you can just call me Amaya. I owe you that much since risked your life to aid me and help me realize this tragedy,” said by Amaya with a very serious and chivalrous expression.
