Destruction of the village of Seris

Two sisters, two fates defined by this place. While all towns harbor darkness, true evil lurked in the village of Seris - a portal to the Abyss. And it demanded to be fed.

The Magistrate made its decision - one sister would be sacrificed to the Abyss, her life less important than its hunger.

The girl accepted her fate, but for her sister the choice to fight was an easy one. Alas, a common girl cannot defeat the Magistrate, or the Abyss. The sister was taken, only a lock of hair was left - another of the Magistrate's meaningless gestures.

With no hope left in the Realm, she turned to a source of salvation: the Enternal Pyre, the cleansing flame from which we are reborn. The sister prayed for guidance, for her loved one's soul, most of all she prayed for the strength to fight the Abyss, so no others will be lost.

As the sacrifice neared, the Void's hunger grew stronger and stronger, until the Abyss realised it hungered not for a soul, but for a body. The Abyss was unleashed and the village of Seris was destroyed.

All were lost, save for one last soul. For what the sister had sought - the Pyre had given. And the weak sister was no more. For she was Furia: cleansing flame incarnate. She would do what none had done before: she would stand against the Abyss.

Crosswind Hold boasts many interesting towns, but none more interesting than the village of Seris. Seris had an open portal to the Abyss, an alternate space outside of the Realm that harbored demonic monsters and creatures of malice. In order to maintain the safety of Seris, the Magistrate conducted an annual tradition of sacrifice to appease the Abyss's hunger. It was a fearful time every year, but the townspeople feared the Abyss more.

The Selection[edit | edit source]

When the time came, a young woman named Abby was selected to be sacrificed by Corvus. While she grimly accepted her fate, her sister Sarah fought back in an attempt to repel the Magistrate guards from seizing her. Sarah was unsuccessful against the governing might, and Abby was scheduled to be sacrificed the next day.

Helpless and forlorn, Sarah retreats to a church for the Eternal Pyre. The Eternal Pyre is noted as a "cleansing light" from which people are reborn and is reputed to be a source of salvation or an entity that answers prayers. Sarah begged for a way to save her sister.

The Sacrifice[edit | edit source]

As the Abyss rumbled to the surface of the portal, it realized that it hungered not for just a soul, but for a physical body to possess. As it surged into Realm and consumed Abby, it caused a massive explosion that decimated the village of Seris.

The Transformation[edit | edit source]

In response to the sudden explosion, the Eternal Pyre too flared in retaliation as it too consumed Sarah, granting her sanctuary. As the town of Seris laid razed, she exited the untouched church building with a newfound purpose of abolishing all the Abyss had so that no future innocents would be lost. Sarah had now become Furia, vengeance incarnate.
