Ascension of the Undying King
Gillian De Rais
an awkward yet inspiring paladin who became the new mayor of faux haven and promises to rid the city of the red hand
Abandoned at birth on the steps to a Chapel of Ioun, Gillian was raised by the priests and clerics there. he was always a shy boy who preferred studying in the under croft to being in the main chambers of the chapel. as soon as he was old enough he took the vows of a cleric and began a pilgrimage across the land. it was on this pilgrimage that he met his future wife Joan. she too was on a pilgrimage so they decided to journey together. several years had passed and they headed back to the chapel where Gillian was raised. unfortunately hard times had struck the quaint village and a war was beginning to erupt in the surrounding kingdoms. the remaining followers of Vecna after the gods death were amassing a final assault on the lands of Ioun. taking up arms Gillian became a paladin and was given the rank of commander. he took his troops into battle but lost many of his men and he was forced to seek more troops. he gathered what men remained and set sail across the ocean hopping for reinforcements. he arrived at the city of Fauxhaven and met Dimitri Belikov and his wife Anya. they both pledged to send aid if Gillian would return the favor and help rid the city of The Red Hand. he also gained support of King Therin who sent several dozen warships to his aid. with the new army Gillian went back to finish the fight and that he did slaughtering all the foes in their path. after the war was over the warships of Miklagaard sailed home along with the troops from Fauxhaven. Gillian promised to return the favor to Demetri as soon as he he got the village back in order. a year had passed and Gillian and Joan board a ship to Fauxhaven to return the favor.
