History

Born in central Esly at the shore of Gratu Plateau. Aragon grew up with easy access to the sea, great mountains and trade caravans from Pulvar at the border to Oglan to Beryllon Bay in the south-eastern part of West Fjella and from Claun through Gratu Valley. The town of his birth, Solvang, was a thriving trade center of its own and was the object of many a Mulvas Prince due its strategic location. So he also had the opertunity to see political struggle at first hand as he grew up.

And did he grow, up. Already at 6 he was more muscular than his comrades. Way more hairy and had this odd fondness for wild animals often making him to wander off with them. Around the age of 12 he for the first time showed the hidden abilities buried within his blood. As he, when robbers ambushed his parents shop, was flung into a frenzy and grew in size, got far hairier and his nails and teeth became tools of destruction. He was in fact, a shapeshifter possessed with a bear Fylgia.

The incident of his shifting chanced his life forever. As most kids then began to shun him it was only bold brawlers trying to best him or curious girls for the score that got somewhat close. And he began more and more to accompany wild animals and at times even beasts of nature. This went on for several years until he was approached by a Shaman from Ea Academy. He had been studying the self taught Aragon for a while and was impressed about how strong the Fylgia seemed. Meanwhile Aragon used it so little, as if unaware.

Its said that Aragon replied, that the residing spirit was not ‘his to use’, but merely happy the co-existed in his body. A very good answer and maybe the sole explanation for the extremely strong spirits reason to be with Aragon. But Aragon was though interested in learning more, especially from a person with capabilities as himself. Thus, he bid his parents farewell and journeyed across West Fjella for almost 10 years to meet other Fylgia possessed persons and learn about controlling it when situations got out of hand.

I’ve heard from Themac that he met Aragon and his mentor, Vervur Mortarr at The Rim. They was studying how the outbursts was influenced by the odd anti- magic and spiritual area and Themac showed them secret paths up the mountains so they was as close to the top as possible. Aragon told me, that never again, has he been that far south.

I was in Usai, in the Port Uslur when the ship came from the south. Some workers and sailors jested that it had to be Themac as he was the only man crazy enough to roam The Rim. This arose my interest, as I had not yet met this famous Cartographer of Ye Olde Zaphirs. But as it turned out, it was his ship but alas, he had stayed in the misty south and only lent his ship to a couple of Shamans. They where heading for Ea and planned to go through The Grey Crevasse up into Tusla and from there sail to Ea.

I asked to tag along and they didn’t mind, so, the 3 of us bought provisions and to this day I’m glad I followed the urge to do this. Not only did I meet a Hero to be, famed for many things. But as they realized I was a Skjald they told me many things about Shamans, Fylgia, Berserk, The Rim and their newfound friend Themac.

And at The Grey Crevasse I realized why Vervur had chosen that path. There we met up with Wrekazi and she had so much to teach Aragon that we stayed for 2 months. I got to know Wrekazi in more ways than one. As they all was to move on and the time for our yearly meeting closed in I traveled my own way from there.

It’s whispered that Wrekazi taught him secret hand weaving in return for his Truename. No one knows the origin of that rumor nor if its true, but one think is certain. When he finally came to Ea, at the very moment he set his foot at the shore. All the animals and beasts on the entire island fell quiet. And several Shapeshifters has told me, that for one short moment, it felt as if their Fylgia abandoned them.

So rapid was his teachings and learning at this rare Earthnode that he skyrocketed up through the ranks. Some say that it was his Fylgia being aided by all other spirits that made his progress so swift.

Never before had they seen such a master… learning things quicker than a Sparrow fly… or a Boar snort… and he soon became a higher ranked student… and completed his work…

When he had completed what he could learn he made a rather surprising choice. He left Ea Academy and traveled to Midgard. He did this as he had once again heard of his old friend Themac and king Black Oak of Ye Olde Zaphirs in Zapri. He told me that what especially interested him was their Shaman Kaziganthi who where said to be a thousand years old. So he trotted out the gates and jumped aboard a ship. To reach that Hordes home and see for himself.

When he reached Ye Olde Zaphirs he soon became involved in their fighting with other lesser Hordes and ended up as one of their officers. He had a merry life and enjoued worldly matters, spoils of battle and the chatter around the campfire. It’s said he had a wife bearing him 2 kids, but that they where lost in a assassination attempt. Supposedly by Spadig.

And it was this incident that made him retract into himself only caring for the studies of Fylgia again. And after a while, leave for Ea Academy once again.

Several years later, after Black Oak became High King Kaziganthi came and stayed with him for a while. It was during this period that the elders of Ea Academy elected Aragon as Grandmaster. Some have told me, with a blink of the eye and slight smile, that the talks they had with Kaziganthi was key in the decision.

After the election Kaziganthi traveled on and Aragon filled the new role as Grandmaster of Ea as he could best. And at the day of The Great Invasion the skills acquired at Ye Olde Zaphirs was what saved his life, as the Aquerian countered every Fylgia attempt and seemingly kept the spirits paralyzed. But one final slight of hand, shoulder twist and insane spine bend. Brought a Tri-Spike fitted mace from his belt into the chattering beak-face of that nasty enemy. How he escaped Ea only he knows, but he did. And are now threading the paths of The Realm.
