When a neighboring country invaded, it brought ruin upon the young knight's kingdom. Though such a fate may have been inevitable, Malius could not let go of his overwhelming feelings of shame at being unable to protect his kin, nor the grudge he bore against the enemy that had murdered them. His maleficent sprit had long forgotten how to smile; all he thought of now was how to return in kind the suffering he had endured. Sir Malius was gone, and in his place an avatar of vengeance most terrible remained.
Avatar translates from Hindi as "descent".
