Introduction[edit | edit source]
Raz is a mage and assassin, who can utilize his short cooldown to wear out the enemies. Once the enemy is low in health, Raz can use his ability combo to nuke the opponent down with his powerful controls and explosive damage. Notice that raz can move for a distance every time he casts an ability, therefore his extraordinary mobility makes him shine both in chasing and escaping enemies.
Story[edit | edit source]
Raz was an important figure in Thane's eternal struggle against the Corrupted. The magnificent king embedded Raz deep in the darkness to be his eyes and ears.
Raz possessed superhuman speed and agility, most importantly his blinding fists struck fast and true. In his long mission, Raz won the trust of Preyta. Earning his favor, Raz was made head of a small strike team in Preyta's army. Using his authority and guile, Raz was always able to stay two steps ahead of the Corrupted, leveraging sabotage and subterfuge to impede the dark army.
However, Preyta was no fool. He could smell a rat. He laid careful machinations to catch the traitor in his midst, even Raz was blissfully unaware until it was too late. While pursuing a false lead, he fell into Preyta's trap. He was immediately surrounded by an ocean of corrupted souls.
Uttering foul curses, Preyta and his ilk closed in around Raz. He could sense that the end was near, but he could not just lay down and accept this kind of fate. Using his last bit of strength Raz lashed out with a fury never before seen in Athanor. His fists were on fire, lighting up his foes and his rage, until finally he broke through. However, his hands were badly broken and his spirit greatly wounded.
Raz limped his way back into Thane's court where he collapsed onto the ground. To save his friend, Thane rushed Raz to the citadel and beseeched the angel Lauriel for aid. But in order to receive the Light's blessing, Raz would have to undergo a grueling trial, and if he failed, he would die.
But luckily, he did not. Not only did Raz triumph and heal himself, he was stronger than he was even before. His gauntlets glowed a crimson light that grew steadily stronger as his resolve to vanquish the Corrupted grew ever more steeled. His fists would tear anything down that stood in the way of his righteous fury.
