Champion of the Guardians Lore

Champion of the Guardians Lore - Rift -

The Rift development team has published a new lore piece about Cyril Kalmar, Champion of the Guardians. Kalmar is the larger-than-life figure prominently featured in several of the Rift videos. The lore piece gives background information about Kalmar and how he came to be in the position he occupies in Guardian history.

Stories disagree about Cyril Kalmar’s origins, and he seems to have sprung, fully-grown and larger-than-life, into the hearts and minds of Mathosians. It is known that Cyril was a giant of a man, possessed of courage and might as well as discipline, compassion, and good cheer. A throwback to the heroes of the ancient songs, Cyril’s exploits inspired the people.

Cyril was already a living legend by the time Prince Zareph went to war against his brother, the usurper Aedraxis. Though Zareph knew Aedraxis was a dragon cultist, the bone-loyal Mathosians saw his campaign as little more than a fratricidal coup. Early in the war, Zareph could not gain popular support, and found himself besieged at what is now Shadefallen Keep in Gloamwood.
