Background:

There are few nations that can surpass the majesty of Imperial Osknia. The Gift of Civilization has been spread even to the surface, where the vast majority of their armies cannot even tread. It was into this nation that Alasayn, third son of the Alushir family, was born. Though so insignificant in the imperial courts as to be nearly powerless, Alasayn was still deeply enamored with the status and glory of Imperial Osknia. His early life was easy as his family’s wealth was far greater than that of most commoners, despite their low status Alasayn even showed talent in psychic magic, a highly prized skill among the intrigue of court. Indeed, one who could cast spells without any indication of their ability was well-regarded for both their sophistication and usefulness. However, his usefulness to the imperial courts was far overshadowed by more well-bred and talented individuals.

With that defeat, Alasayn decided that he had best find his fortune elsewhere. He tried to join the imperial bureaucracy, and though he was intelligent enough, found himself too short tempered for the drudgery of the work. He also sought a position with the army, but upon being swiftly bucked off a hippocampus during the riding exam, found himself laughed out of the training camp.

With few other options, he decided he had best try his luck on the surface, among the rabble of the dryfeet. He could not bear to stay in the territory of the empire, not when his family’s reputation could be sullied when one of their sons was not only above water, but also seen mingling with air breathers. With that, he set out for Ulnswhere, the nearest nation. It was upon his arrival to Ulnswhere that he became aware of the curse that affected the nation. He also became aware of the call to end the curse. He saw his fate begin to crystallize in his mind. He would end the curse that affected Ulnswhere, and use the sizeable influence he would gain from it to increase his family’s and the entire Osknian nation’s prestige, and, if possible, bring Ulnswhere under Imperial Osknian rule.
