- This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!

Extra Arc - Tir'ade's Fate

Chapter 12 features an extra arc that continues the story of Tir'ade Val'Kyorl'solenurn. It is drawn by Katibu and written by Xian.

After being tainted in combat alongside Chirinide, Tir'ade ran away from his clan to escape religious execution. He hid in the ruins of the Nidraa'chal war, where he was eventually spotted by Ant'alya, a Fallen Legion soldier from the Val'Sarghress clan. On orders from Kel'noz, she approached Tir'ade warmly with food and supplies to help him survive alone. She also offered to welcome him to the Val'Sarghress clan, where his skills as a templar would prove useful. He politely declined, and she did not push him.

Ant'alya continued to bring food for Tir'ade, who grew frustrated with his inability to purge his own seed. Not wanting to live on handouts forever, he took a walk around the ruins to clear his mind. Ant'alya visited his camp with her regular food delivery while he was out, and was instead met by Vy'chriel and Yaeminira Sharen, a pair of Vel'Sharen agents on their way to the Val'Sarghress fortress. They brutally murdered her and left her body unceremoniously amidst the war ruins.

Tir'ade later came upon her body and was struck with guilt. He vowed to return her body to the Val'Sarghress in return for her exceptional hospitality.
