The Warriors of the Stone
A black Dragonborn with fiery red eyes.
Long ago, a great evil roamed the world. Just as Bahamut is a force of great good in the universe, there was an opposite. Balgrimm the Black: A terrible and horrifyingly powerful black dragon that could make the devils and demons bow in fealty to his dark and evil might formed a dark army with which he planned to conquer all he laid his eyes upon.
After years of war, Balgrimm and his forces were finally defeated leaving Balgrimm in a somewhat weakened state. Knowing full well that this vile creature could not be destroyed by any means they possessed, the heroes of the great war banished Blagrimm to the deepest reaches of the Astral Plane, never to return. Shortly before he was banished from this plane of existence, Balgrimm forced what little power he had left into a dark and powerful spell. In this arcane ritual, he created what was essentially a different version of himself (a son, if you will). Through this complex magic, Balgrimm devised a way in which he could potentially return a wreak his terrible vengeance on the world that cast him out. The egg that was created through this ritual eventually hatched revealing a young Dragonborn which bore a great resemblance to Balgrimm himself.
As luck would have it, a Dragonborn Paladin of Bahamut happened upon the youngling during a journey. He found a black Dragonborn infant with a dark red crystal embedded in his chest. Curious as to what this meant, the paladin returned to his temple with the infant. No one seemed to have an idea, except the High Elder. He had read about this type of Evil Magic before. This creature was destined to grow up to be Balgrimm’s avatar and bring about the evil dragon’s return. For each soul the Dragonborn consumed, Balgrimm would be one step closer to regaining his strength and returning to the world. The Elder calculated that the creature would need to collect about 100 souls in order to provide Balgrimm with the strength to break the bonds of the Astral Plane. Knowing full well what sort of evil could be wrought upon the world, the High Elder commanded that the creature be raised at the temple to become a paladin of Bahamut. They would treat him no differently from his brothers and hopefully they could erase any sort of evil that he might contain. Although skeptical at first, the others agreed. The child was raised amongst the others and trained in the ways of the light of Bahamut. He was named Xxodd Thrawn after the the Paladin that found him, Xxander Thrawn.
Eventually, the time came for the now young adult Xxodd to go off into the world and destroy evil and darkness where it lived. He was told by the high priest of what he truly was and what they worked so hard to combat. Xxodd was determined to make his own way and not be influenced by his so called destiny. Xxodd, however, knew he was different. He often felt violent urges that pressed him to do things that his way of life had forbidden. He was usually very good at restraining himself, but if his anger got the better of him, he would lash out and unwillingly tap into his true nature despite himself.
He soon joined a group of adventurers and moved to gain a great strength in preparation for his father’s inevitable return. Xxodd is the only one who can truly destroy Balgrimm the Black and that’s exactly what he intends to do.
