Karne is the grand magister of the Magistrate, a powerful order of magic users consisting of former paladins and skilled magicians.
Background[edit | edit source]
After peace was brought to the realm the Paladins were no longer needed. As they stepped down from governing the lands, Karne created the Magistrate: an assembly of ex-paladins and powerful sorcerers, led by the Paladin Karne himself as Grand Magister.
However, a new discovery was made, crafted crystals with great potential for magic and technological advances. Accidents and misuses during the revolution made the Magistrate decide action needed to be taken. The Grand Magister decided to outlaw crystals. Others agreed with Karne whether out of belief in his words or simply loyalty.
They began raids and incursions across the land seizing any crystals they could find. A battle took place against the newly formed Resistance, which eventually resulted in the destruction of a powerful Stagalla. Though beaten, the Resistance did not dissipate and now a civil war has erupted where the Magistrate will not rest until the Resistance is destroyed.
Karne has a son named Corvus, who also held a high position in the Magistrate. After Corvus was tricked by Seris into releasing Raum, he was exiled from the Magistrate as punishment for disappointing Karne.
