The Vengeance Seeker
Riot Stonewall was born on the year XXX in the village of R’ugh Rai Dh’ah . It was a small orc village. His mother was a valiant Orc Barbarian by the name of Rage Stonewall, his father a cunning monk named Gale Glory. As fate would have it, Riot quickly grew to one of the best warriors in his village, however he felt that he could not fit in. No matter how hard he tried, it felt like he didn’t belong. That all changed the day a handsome gladiator named Long Le came to visit and instantly Riot quickly knew he met his soulmate. Then as the years passed, the two young warriors came to fall in love, and had many midnight rendezvous and secret excursions that turned into many intimate gatherings. But Riot’s happiness would not last forever. As his boyhood turned into manhood, things changed for the worst when the Hunters came. The Hunters were a feared group of bandits, thieves and murderers hell bent on only one thing: destruction. As soon as they sent their eyes on R’ugh Rai Dh’ah, the quickly raided the village, pillaged what they could and left destruction and fear in their wake. Rage and Gale tried their best to defend the village, but were no match for the Hunter’s overwhelming numbers and unique tactics. This all occurred while Riot was waiting for Long in one of their many secret hiding spots. When Riot finally came back after waiting for Long for hours, he saw his home in disarray. Every one was dead including his parents and lover. However, in the midst of the chaos stood one figure and flowing black cloak. " I am the bringer of justice" the shape bellowed. "Follow me if you want vengeance With rage in his heart, Riot followed the wraith. From that point on, Riot received training on how to become the perfect assassin. Physical combat skills, tests of mental strength, challenges of stealth and deception were all taught at this wraith’s order, or The Order as Riot would affectionately call it. Then came his graduation day from The Order. The test was to determine guilt within one sentence of the accused three and execute those who rightfully deserved it. " Fuck it all mate, I’m innocent "shouted one. "Bloody murder you fuck, lemme out of here!’ bellowed the other. However, the last remaining man stood silent. His eyes pointed to the ground, his head lowered as a sign of remorse. Within that split second, Riot knew who deserved to die that day. He quickly drew his shortsword and pierced the hearts of the belligerent accused, and let the silent man live. As Riot sheathed his sword, the silent man asked why he did not kill him. To which Riot answered " I’m pretty sure they’re guilty of something. But you, you my friend deserve much worse. I recognize your face as one of the members of the Hunters, you’re the one who decided to desecrate my village’s grave. For that, I have a fate much worse than that" Riot hissed. As Riot said those words, he drew his small dagger and began to carve the face of the silent man’s head beginning with cutting off his eyelids and then began to flay the man. As the screams grew louder, so did Riot’s smile. The blood pouring on his hands and face. Since that notorious day, Riot grew to have a reputation as one of the most fearsome and frightful assassin’s in the region. Since his graduation, Riot was free to leave the order and continues to hunt the people who murdered his village.
