Eryael's Past

Eryael's youth was revealed in detail during the second Griffin Sword Saga when his power was neutralized by a group of individuals lead by Ulstram in an invasion on his mind.

In his childhood, Eryael was a sweet golden-eyed elven boy who served in an ivory temple with great flowering gardens. He had a magic touch, particularly with roses. He was left on the doorstep of the temple, presumably as an infant, and raised there.

His temple was raided and the clergy slaughtered by a mad, sadistic lord, and only he survived to be taken captive by the man, tortured and abused. His golden eyes were cut away, to sharpen his other senses and heighten is agonies.

After a thousand horrible acts had been visited on him over the course of years, Mularos came to him in the midst of his pain, speaking in his mind. Eryael had clung to his desires to make things beautiful to keep his sanity, and the Sorrow of the World promised him all the beauty he had lost and more. He gifted Eryael with his sight, so the boy would see as he did.

And see the youth did, with eyes of deep violet hue that held a light of their own. Infused with newfound power, he freed himself and turned on his captor, but not before thanking him for his part in this new understanding. Eryael's tormentor and the catalyst of his change became the very first blossom planted in the Painlord's garden.
