Champion Concept: Kaes - Judge of Souls
Lord Tekron last edited by
Alrighty, the first on the list of "Operation: Concept Transportation" was infact the latest of champions I conceptualized. So here we go.
The inevitability of death lingers all souls, and only few find ways to evade the fate that is destined for all mortals. And upon ones death they will find their souls at the mercy of the Judge of Souls, Kaes.
Kaes presences has been around for as long as history has recorded, however while he is feared by many as the personification of death, he is not inherently evil. Once deceased Kaes will judge your soul not by the actions you have done, but the reasons behind said actions. Those who have done things for pure or good reasons will find themselves absolved of guilt and ascend to the world beyond. Those whose purposes were for cruelty or evil will find themselves damned to fates worse then their own death.
However... Something has happened, something that has made Kaes step out of the shadow of spirits and to become visible to all mortals. The inevitability Kaes had once known of has become, uncertain, by forces outside of his domain. And after judging the leaders of both sides of this ongoing war, has made himself ally with the Magistrate in hopes of correcting this uncertainty this conflict has brought forth and returning this back to as things have been.
