Personal life

Isiah was born in Septalot in a family of 5. His father was a fisher and his mother was a stay-at-home mom. At the age of 15, Isiah went to the military academy of Centerdeep and graduated top of his year.

Military leadership

After proving himself in the defensive army as a capable leader, Isiah rose through the ranks. At the age of 35, he attained the rank of general. In his career, Isiah pushed through the now Aspela region. While Isiah loved the fights against the dwarven and elven kingdoms, he was against the wars between the humans.

In 249, a year after his founding of the Shadow Empire, Isiah defended Decarise against a dwarven siege. Outnumbered, he created an elite squad, named the Fallen Guards. Isiah laid out a plan to neutralize the dwarven leadership and take out their resources in the night. After their losses, the dwarves retreated the next day.


Foundation of the Shadow Empire

Isiah saw that humankind should unite against other races to establish their dominance. In 248 he united the leaders of the human empire against him. Through donations and secrecy, he built up an empire that led humankind through the ages.

To many, Isiah was a hero. Not many know of the founding of the Shadow Empire, even fewer lived to tell the tales about it. The Siege of Fewood is still an important conflict that is taught at schools.
