The Crowfall team has revealed some of the lore behind the first crow aptly named "Hero". They say that Hero had a thousand lives, but with the anger of the gods always at his back, it was in his best interest to lay low. Over the course of time, Hero became the legend that is presented today on the official site.
Only fools dream of eternal life. Denied the chance for peace in the afterlife, Hero became an undying soldier – cursed to fight and die in every war, across every world, in every age. He wakes on the eve of each battle with no memory of his past lives. He remembers only his sense of duty and how to carry a sword.
Each life ends the same. As his heart falters, the memories come flooding back: his wife, his children, the love and the longing, and the anguish and the pain. He remembers every life he has lived and the pain of every death.
