This however was not the end for Mardrake, for he returned as a Wraith during the events of the Highpass Struggle to the remainder of his family in the fight against his former associate and the Blood Kingdom.
Mardrake's life shows how easily mortals can slip from their ideals and convictions in the pursuit of desire. However, it is also one of redemption and pity as a trapped spirit within Mortalia, he has come to greatly regret his ways in pursuit of peace.
Mardrake Baer was born in Norden on the 28th of Mid-Winter to Mytheria and Arnold Torick, he barely survived as Mytheria contracted Red Frost and died during childbirth. Arnold in homage of his beloved wife's passing named their newborn Mardrake, from the plant used to try and remedy her.
For most of his early childhood, Mardrake grew up alongside his brother Bruce, whilst Bruce was always seen as the favourite son and the heir to Norden's command, Mardrake was just the tag alone, teased and bullied by children his age and even by his brother, for Bruce blamed his younger brother for years that he was the cause of their mother's death giving birth to him. Mardrake sought comfort within the Chapel of Light, for it was only their that Mardrake could escape the torment as his bullies, the abuse of his brother and the neglect from his father.
Leaving the HighlandsEdit
By Mardrake's 18th birthday, he had decided what he wanted to do with the rest of his natural life. He wanted to join the Light Priesthood, healing and saving those who are near death or dying. Arnold off course did not approve, claiming that the life of his sons should be spent preparing to succeed him in rule over the realm, not wasting your time on trivial matters, Arnold always favored Bruticus over Mardrake, as he seemed much like himself at his age. Eventually Mardrake made a pact with his brother behind their fathers back, and so he left Highpass to join the priesthood where he began in Kat Prime. As of that moment however, Arnold renounce ownership of Mardrake thus removing his nobility to the Highland Republic but Mardrake did not care much for it.
Life as a PriestEdit
Mardrake spent 5 years training in the Cathedral of Light in Katastar to become a Light Priest, though his training was tough and often required feats of willpower through starvation and zeal. Mardrake kept to the routine. His routine involved awakening to pray at dawn, spending 2 hours in complete prayer, then the rest of the day involves ceremonies in the cathedral, studying from the library and Mardrake's favorite, using light magic to heal and revive ill or wounded patients within the infirmary. Mardrake spent the majority of his time in the infirmary healing the sick. It wasn't long after his 5 years in the priesthood for the elder priests to notice him. They decided to honour him with a chance to attend the king's council as the priesthood's representative. This meant Mardrake would be involved in the leading of the Kingdom of Stars. Mardrake gladly accepted the honour and half whenever the king's council was called, Mardrake would be there.
Vampire War Edit
When the Vampire War broke out in Mardrake's homeland of Highpass, Mardrake kept in close contact with his brother who was the acting general on their father's behalf through letters, Mardrake found that his niece Katarine had been sent to him by Bruticus to watch over her if anything was to happen to him during the Vampire war, which Mardrake accepted.
Mardrake pleaded to Bruticus to request aid from Andrew Katanova however Bruticus knew what would come from the Kingdom of Stars involvement, it would mean the end of the Highland Republic through conquering. Mardrake tried to plead to Andrew on his own however the king simply ignored him as he was just a priest, not a general, Andrew had more important things to worry about such as the Njordsir's coastal raids, the discovery of the Renegade stronghold Pirate Haven and the incursion of the Briari and Goblins in his kingdom. During the final days of the war, Bruticus knew his defeat was drawing near, he sent one final letter to Mardrake, detailing his regret not seeking the Katanovian's aid. Mardrake mourned the letter and knew that his brother was gone when the knew that the Vampires had taken control of Mannaberg and winning the Vampire War.
Meeting the Templars Edit
Within the first phew weeks of Mardrake being selected as the Light Priesthood's representative in the King's council that another Celestris order caught wind of him; the Templar Brotherhood heard about the young priest Mardrake who had become a key figure of the light within the nation of Starlet worshippers, they offered Mardrake an invitation to Idara, to meet the elders of the brotherhood at Monastery Pure, Mardrake: backed by the Light Priesthood accepted the offer and accompanied the Templar escorts from Kat Prime to Lornvale.
