Ethernight is known for the diversity of its residents, always helpful and keen on cooperating with the Empire to prosper. But even there were still some outsiders; One of them was a race of Lykos, the humanoidal Wolfs. They wanted to live independently, without any contact with the Empire, mostly because of their religious believes. They believe that any form of alliance with humans will turn the member of said tribe into a weak servant, gladly working for someone without any hesitation. But when the times went dire, there was no place for these superstitions. The disease that spread upon the Empire also affected the tribe. Only a few members managed to stay untouched by it.
Xeadas was one of Lykos who liked to call themselves as "pure", but the times got dire, and there was no room for scratching the old wounds. He knew that he had to take action, so therefore, he left the tribe and went to the Empire to ask for help. After talking to the Empress herself, she assigned him as a temporary member of her Veterans so that he could join their mission: To find a cure for this sickness. And with that, Xeadas ventured onward to save his tribe. He split up with the rest of the Veterans and went to the great "Mountains of Courage", the Mountains named after the great explorer who was travelling for 6 months straight to get to the top, never taking a single step back. The biggest problem was the everlasting snow and cold, but Xeadas was convinced that there would be the salvation of the Empire and his people.
But once he reached the mountains, things started to get worse. Xeadas saw a strange-looking entity, it was like an Ice Elemental, but not made by a wizard's hand. He was unable to get a closer look, though, because the creature locked Xeadas in a gigantic ice block and left him to die in this prison. Several months passed on and everyone seemed to have forgotten Xeadas, but he not only survived, but also even managed to free himself. Not due to his endurance or just because of pure luck, though. It was due to the fact that the creature also cursed him, turning him into a hybrid of a Wolf and pure Ice. All he could feel now is the cold embrace of death and, at the same time, the boiling rage only vengeance can create.
He wanted to meet the other Veterans for help in this matter, but since he was unable to contact anyone, he went to the Empire. There, he saw the ruins of the Prime Gate and the struggle of his brothers-in-arms against the Duskbringer. A Veteran who was currently resting from this battle informed him about the situation, including the death of Ramilda Solsworn, the Empress. Xeadas knew that he has nothing left to lose, that he has to take action, so he rejoined the Veterans and was willed to fight at their side and fight for any Wolf who might still be alive. Thus, he took a sip of the Phoenix' Tears and moved towards the former Empire.
