The Three Sages and the Darkness

The world continued long past Pan’ku’s last breath. Over eighteen thousand years, the Daemondarke transformed paradise into hell and stirred the essence of Pan’ku in the process. The Three Sages formed from the three aspects of the former Pan’ku’s essence– might, spirit, and will. Pan’ku’s might became the Dragon Sage, his soul became the Spirit Sage, and his mind became the Sovereign Sage. The Three Sages began their journey across the world to set it right.

The trip into the heart of darkness led the Three Sages through a gauntlet of demons and vile creatures. At every turn their hearts sank with depravity and horror they saw forced upon the world and every step of the journey was a battle. Many minions of the Daemondarke were defeated along the way.

After many years of unrelenting struggle, the tide gave way to the court of the Dark Soul, himself. The Three Sages stood tall against the master of the Daemondarke. While the dark lord towered above them on his thrown of obsidian, the Three Sages did not waver. They demanded that the Daemondarke leave the world so that it might return to its natural state of paradise. The Dark Soul raged against them claiming the world was his to do with as he wished. Five Warlords stepped forward from the darkness to stand by the Dark Soul – War, Famine, Pestilence, Death, and Despair. Outnumbered, the Three Sages were defeated and they retreated to the five pillars from whence they came.

They devised the Martial Path, a doctrine of physical skill and martial might that leads towards perfection of the self. While they are completely loyal to their brothers within the Three Sages, they are overtly self-assured and vicious in combat. their purview is

The Spirit Sage: The Spirit Sage is the manifestation of Pan’ku’s spirit. While the Dragon Sage created the Martial Path, the Spirit Sage is responsible for the creation of the Mystic Path, a means of spiritual enlightenment. The Spirit Sage is soft-spoken and reserved, preferring to work from behind the scenes or through intermediaries when possible.
