Brand the Stonehearted
Two hundred years ago King Brand, nineteenth to hold his name, united all of the kingdom of Bhriataig, saving it from a dark age of internal conflict and evil worship with his strength, wisdom, and purity. A mere ten years into his glorious rule the armies of Viran the Unifier marched into the kingdom, now called Branddale in the King's honour, intent on adding it to Talladale in his campaign to dominate Ralstaa. In battle the two kings met, and though Viran bested Band the thing was too close to claim victory, and so both agreed to speak. But while they parleyed Viran ignobly poisoned Brand under banner of truce. Thinking their king dead, the fearful nobles of Branddale gave their fealty to the Unifier. But Brand did not die. His most loyal followers took his dying body, and through ancient art persuaded a stone magician to tear his soul from his body, and put it in an ancient man of stone in some hidden place in Tohl Khalad, that me might survive. But the stone Brand proved unable to comprehend his new form, and went into a mad rage, and had to be put to slumber. The stone magician died, and all hope of restoring the king died with him. Now Brand sleeps in a hidden chamber, though the secret of his existence has long become accepted legend. Now and then, when the need is dire, those who know where to find him wake him. But the find the once great hero's mind more and more fractured each time they pull him into the world.
