To rediscover his purpose in the world, after his family's betrayal.Home:
Of all the islands ruled by The Zweite Junta, Eradine has one of the largest populations of all the islands with a mandatory 5 year military service for all males between the ages of 18 and 35. It prides itself on the size of its armies and fleets, though the truth is that much of their training is rushed and their gear is cheap and prone to malfunctions.Gimmicks:
Cayde's affinity with fire allows him to summon an intense flame around his weapon and armor, one hot enough to even melt through metals like bronze. To keep his armor and weapons from warping or bending, he tends to only use equipment made of Draethil. The metal is similar to steel in terms of strength, but with a much higher melting point, making it especially hard to craft with and only used in specialty items.Personality:
Months ago, anyone who knew Cayde would tell you the man was the most upstanding citizen, always doing what was right and the moral compass of any group. On any military campaign, he would always be seen prioritizing the safety of his men and any civilians that may have been in the area. After the betrayal of his family though and being sentenced to a lifelong stay in Prison Isle Ziggurat, Cayde has been questioning himself. Where before he would do the right thing, even if he knew it would lead to more hardship for himself, now he self-doubts and criticizes his every action. He still desires to do good, but is it worth the austerity that seems to always come with it? He hopes that an adventure with this ragtag group of fellow inmates will lead him to the answer of such a question.Background:
When Cayde was young, he loved hearing the tales of his uncle Dorian and the adventures he used to go on with his fellow soldiers. They were filled with acts of bravery and strength as the island's greatest warriors fought for their kinsmen's rights and freedoms that, for the longest time, had been what the young man had strove to emulate. His uncle was the one who had convinced him to even join their island's military, despite his nobleman status allowing to him to be exempt from the mandatory service. He had every intention of rising through the ranks and living up to the name his uncle had made for himself before taking his position as one of The 13 Heads of Zweite, after Cayde's grandfather had passed. So when the day came that Dorian's treachery and power hungry nature came to light, it wounded him to the very core.
His uncle had been his role model since he was but a toddler, but now Cayde had come across undeniable proof that Dorian intended to assassinate the other members of The Zweite Junta as well as their families, leaving himself the only applicable leader to rule all 300 islands. He couldn't let this happen, allowing all that power go to one single person who's so devoid of morals to massacre so many. So Cayde did what he knew was his only option. He had to turn his hero in.
Unfortunately, the young man put his trust in the wrong people yet again as the authorities instead turned him over to Dorian. Cayde had at least successfully released the plans for the assassination to the public, so it could not be attempted, but the names of those behind it had not. So the punishment for his leak was easy, Cayde was no used as the scapegoat for the coup, locked away in the deepest parts of Prison Isle Ziggurat, away from anyone who could hear the truth.Inventory:
