115 Nergal

The ringleader working behind the scenes to take control of the continent of Elibe.
A pursuer of knowledge of what can be produced from darkness. After managing to spin his life span beyond mortal boundaries, he came to seek nothing but power –and fueled the flames of a war that engulfed the entire continent in order to resurrect the Dragons. A long time ago, he was friends with Athos –but a difference in opinion lead to a break down and fight –which Nergal lost. From then on he hid himself in darkness, quietly built the path to destruction.

He schemed to take over the continent of Elibe in order to gain enough power to contact the lost Dragons. To summon dragons, he had to collect a lot of “Aegir,” and so manipulated the “Black Fang” from behind the scenes to start wars and spread chaos.
In the past, he sought more knowledge; however, in reaching that ultimate power he sought, he had forgotten everything about himself over time, the darkness able to engulf him completely.
A thousand years ago, it seemed he lived on the “Demon Isle.” But all memories of those moments were lost in time.

 失われし竜族の文明に触れ、その力をもってエレブ大陸を掌握しようと企む。竜召喚に必要な【エーギル】を集めるために、【黒い牙】を背後から操り、混乱と戦火を起こした。
 過去には知識を求め学ぶ身であったが、いかなるものをも砕く力を求めた先に何があったのか、彼自身も忘れる程に時は流れ、闇は彼を飲みこみ歪めたのであった。
 千年前に【魔の島】に住んだ時期があったようだが、その頃の記憶は失っている。
