Zien, The Shadow's Revenge

Comment below rating threshold, click here to show it.





Growing up in Zaun, Zien had quickly learned that to survive at a younger age, he had to use his surroundings to his advantage. He found that many of his peers, while stronger than him, lacked the cleverness he had. But it was one pivotal day in his life when he gained something powerful.

In a disput with the hated rival of Zien turned fatal after Zien murdered the boy in a strike quickier and deadlier than any of his peers had ever seen. Those who witnessed the event say that he was surrounded by a dark shroud, and his eyes were blood red. The following morning, he was gone. His familiy had been found hacked to pieces in their house, and his fathers best knives missing.

No one saw Zien for 10 years, and when he returned, he was not the same person. The shroud that surrounded him that day seemed more controlled, and he seemed to radiate darkness. He had the build of a seasoned soldier, and the intelligence of someone 3 times his age. Upon retunring to Zaun, he went and killed the members of his old rivals gang. One survivor who was made hospitolized stated "He would come from nowhere... we couldnt see him...we watched helplessly as we were butchered one by one..."

Nobody then saw or heard of Zien again until he made his appearance at the Institute of War, claiming he alone would bring Zaun to greatness.
