Name: Ouroboros
Concept:Defy Fate
Shadowed Caste:Warrior
Motivation:Destroy Fate


For the longest time (insofar as the concept of time can be regarded with regards to the Wyld) Ouroboros was simply one of many Unshaped Raksha who did not care about Creation one whit. However, when the Solar exalted initially began expanding Creation, he was forced to consider it. It was a potential threat, Ouroboros knew that, but he saw something far worse in his opinion. He saw that the entities within Creation were bound to a constricting web of predetermination. Ouroboros could not abide by this, so he planned and waited for the right time to strike at this construct he so despised.

He did not take part in the Balorian Crusade, as he was not particularly interested in destroying Creation (but rather freeing its inhabitants and, in his opinion, enlightening them). He witnessed the crumbling of the crusade and the rise of the Empress and waited even further. His patience has finally been rewarded, as the Empress appears to have vanished and Creation is in disarray from the return of the Solar Exalted. It is now that Ouroboros enters the stage with every intent of changing Creation forever.


Ouroboros favors a form that uses no assumption at all. Merely a collection of essence within a loose robe that makes him appear rather like a ghost at first glance. However, due to having entered Creation from the south, he can craft an elemental fire body and has been making use of it as needed.
