Name: Ezekiel, Lord of Bones РForsaken Twin of Corruption by Spectre Elite Gaming Studio

“Zeke was born in Badwater – a barbaric settlement on the outskirts of the Abyssal Woods – with a twin sister, Mona. There was nothing remarkable about Zeke and he never achieved any real measure of greatness during his time in the settlement. ‘Survivial of the Fittest’ was the rule and Zeke was constantly overlooked and unappreciated. He would also often be chosen when a potential sacrifice might be needed or when the risks were greatest. Furthermore, his participation in hunts never amounted to much more than a ‘Tooth and Claw’ presence – a trait that he would eventually excel at on an almost instinctual level. He was not trusted with weapons and no one really cared if he came back alive. Despite all odds, he would repeatedly prevail well into the twilight years of Badwater while gaining considerable understanding of this nightmarish world. One fateful night following a silk storm during ‘The Season of the Spiderling’, Zeke and Mona decided they had had enough of the brutish denizens. They held hands and walked off into the darkness. Shortly thereafter, Mona was taken by a Spidicules while Zeke was spared only to be a living host for brain parasites. Overcome with grief and fear, he went completely insane. Eventually, Zeke went so far as to cut his own face off and fashioned it into a Forsaker-esque mask in a hopeless attempt at combating the enormity of his despair. He also found solstice in manically chanting passages from The Book of the Dead which he found on the dead body of an Archivist in the Spidicules’ lair. Despite all odds, his circumstances and actions unexpectedly unlocked some kind of latent potential buried deep in his mind and a new monster was born that day. Reborn and self-titled as Ezekiel, Lord of Bones, his unnatural affinity towards undeath, corruption and entropy – coupled with a complete loss of all humanity – would lend to be the deciding factor in the vengeance he took against the Spidicules as well as many seemingly impossible battles to come. No one knows what happened to Zeke after the mangled remains of the Spidicules were found but it is told by other nearby settlements that the complete destruction of Badwater may have occurred shortly following his return…”
