"To become pure, one must not fall to the pathetic "morals" that have been set by mankind. Instead, you must rise above them and act upon one's desire and ambition. To embrace the darkness in one's heart is to become truly pure."
― Nile Cavan

Nile Cavan was a necromancer and practitioner of the dark arts who was murdered in an attempt to stop him from becoming powerful enough to cause major damage. However, his story did not end there. His loyal follower Judal eventually resurrected him as a Specter. Upon his return to Terra, his necromancy became even more powerful due to his connection to death, with him being a Specter. He eventually formed a cabal known as the Lemures. Upon forming the Lemures, he is given the ceremonial title of Velatross.

Background

Death, Time in Necropolis, and Resurrection

While initially not having many friends due to his introverted behavior and practice in the Left-Hand Path, he soon gained few allies who were extremely loyal to him, with his best friend and follower being Judal Heatts. These few did not view the dark arts as a malevolent form of magic, but as a perfectly natural and more realistic variation. With that mindset, they intended to help make the world a better place by utilizing the Left-Hand. However, this dream was crushed when an assassin killed Nile, hired by rival sorcerer and practitioner of the Right-Hand Path. Nile's demise was meant to end their idea, but it did merely delayed their plans.

Upon his death, Nile found himself in Necropolis, a place akin to Hell. The ruler of Necropolis, Furxon, took interest in the young Necromancer. Furxon offered Nile total control of the dark arts and necromancy in exchange for his eternal loyalty and service. Nile, however, coldly rejected the offer, not wanting to become a puppet of the sinister ruler. As punishment for rejecting the offer, Furxon trapped Nile inside the deepest layer of Necropolis. However, this would only keep him for so long, as soon Judal preformed a ritual utilizing a powerful spell to Nile back to the realm of the living, also known as Terra. In an attempt to stop this, Furxon meddled, causing the ritual to go wrong. Upon him meddling in the ritual, Nile came back as a Specter, as opposed to a human.

The Lemures

Upon his return to Terra, Nile appeared different. Due to his time in Necropolis, he was far darker in persona and more sinister in motive. He believed that the only way to become truly pure was to become purely dark, as becoming purely light is impossible. He passed these teachings onto his followers, and eventually formed the Lemures, a cabal focused around conquering Terra. Once the Lemures were formed, Nile was given the ceremonial title of Velatross, a title that showed he was their leader. Along with the title, he was given a special suit of armor that was enchanted to deflect all magic sent onto him back to the initial sorcerer who put it there, along with not only self regenerating, but also regenerating any damage Nile himself takes.

The Lemures' were hated, and forced to retreat to the island of Torian, where they would be able to work undisturbed. From there, Nile and his necromancers would begin to raise the dead, so that they may one day conquer Terra and all who inhabit it.
