From Boy to Hero to Disgrace…
Lotus was born in a distant land called Merica. In Merica he grew up and dreamed to one day join the army, to be a man who others would be proud of, who he could be proud to be. He looked around at all the pride the Merican showed during their holidays and how everyone was glad to do what they could to make it a better place. It was a great time to grow up. When he turned 18 he joined the army during one of it’s most trying times.
Merica had been at war with the neighboring island of Nam. A treaty had been signed years ago by these two countries to stay out of each others business, but a new rebellion had surged in Nam. The country island became split in two and those from the south asked Merica for help. Lotus joined just in time to be part of the first battalion to storm the beaches. Everything went well until they made it to the border lands. The natives to Nam were trolls, some where friendly but other were the enemy. The biggest problem was that to Lotus they all looked the same. Years went by in the jungles of the island and Lotus watched as his company was slowly killed before his eyes, he began to only believe in death out in the jungle. Only death was there to comfort him and to hurt him time and time again. He soon began to worship the idea of death, thinking that he could stop it if only he could learn its ways. When his company received orders to storm a village lead by the fearsome Charlie Tribe, Lotus was captured an forced to watch them kill his battle buddies to prove to the Merican government that the Tribe wanted them gone. Lotus spent 10 years in a prison camp focusing only on the death around him. He slowly lost his mind.
One day he broke free of his cage and fought bravely against the Charlie leader, Big Chuck. The fighting was savage Lotus with no weapons except a rock he had used to beat the troll’s skull in with. He had escaped letting all of the prisoners free. When he returned to the Merica’s Base camp in South Nam Island he was received as a hero. He was brought back to Merica’s for treatment of an injury to his right leg he got during the fight with Big Chuck. He was discharged from the army with a thank you, and found himself lost. It had been 30 years since he had been home, it had changed so much it didn’t seem much like home anymore. After sometime he took the sword cane he had received as a present for his service from the general and left Merican soil forever.
They found Lotus at a casino arguing with a Gnome about price of a room. As they travel Lotus became stronger and so did the bonds of friendship they shared. When he felt he had destroyed those bonds with his one true friend Isaiah, Lotus began to make plans to set everything right. He returned to Talon and began a cross planar travel and struck a deal with Grundel, Dwarven Goddess of death for the safe and full restoration of the Lethudos family and the city of Talon. In exchange his life was forfeit to her, she also eased his condition back so that he no longer suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. When he returned he did so from the stomach of another man. Things went from bad to worse, soon he had helped create the world as we know it now. Though he would receive most of the blame for it, soon it would even become known as the Death Lotus Incident.
Lotus has returned to the world, he has lost his friends once more and come to the terrible truth that in the end death is the one constant thing. But it is his unfortunate curse to live until he has payed Grundel back in full for the deal he struck with her. The Lethudos family seeming disappeared with Gregory and Isaiah, it seems to him that his deal will only be honored after he has paid his end so he pushes forward going were death takes him. He leaves a trail of tears and blood where he goes and cares not for who his victims are because in the end he is doing this for those he knows to be his true friends.
