Lore

"Long ago, an order of monastic knights slew the vile gods of the old world, using esoteric powers granted by the moon and sun. Now the world has grown dark and violent, as those selfsame deities prepare their return—challenged only by the light of the eclipse."
The Coven
  • Coven Ahri Coven Ahri
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Ahri-versary, Catseye, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Tanzanite
    They came to Ahri at the first stirrings of dusk—the laughter of the Half-Light Jackal, ever stalking the world as it turned towards its own inevitable entropy. A vicious predator and powerful witch, Ahri sucks the life from all she lures close, siphoning it towards her lord within the gloom.
  • Coven Ashe Coven Ashe
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Aquamarine, Catseye, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Tanzanite
    They came to Ashe in a bone-deep chill—the frost of the Jet-Black Ibex, entombing the world in ice. She descended the mountain and brought a harrowing winter with her… but that is not the only thing that followed Ashe into the night. The mountain itself rumbles.
  • Coven Camille Coven Camille
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Aquamarine, Dark Ritual, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Tanzanite, Turquoise
    They came to Camille as if in some dark slumber—whispers of the Ebony Ram, and the nameless things tumbling up from long-forgotten sepulchers. Her throat full of hearsay, she cuts down the vestiges of the new world, seeding the earth with the magics and witchery of her ancient, grinning masters.
  • Coven Cassiopeia Coven Cassiopeia
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Catseye, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Tanzanite
    They came to Cassiopeia as a shadow within the fog—the shape of the Silver Cobra, slithering up from the numberless graves of the ancient dead. She now stalks the ruling families of humankind, her sculpture garden full of wayward souls who strayed too far from the safety of castle walls, now eternally frozen in the throes of terror.
  • Coven Evelynn Coven Evelynn
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Dark Ritual, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    The covens of the south join their sisters for the great resurrection, as old things stir once more, and old grudges are at last repaid in full. Evelynn, daughter of the Great Harrier, gladly joins her sisters for the darkness to come—a trail of brutality and death always in her wake.
  • Coven LeBlanc Coven LeBlanc
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Amethyst, Aquamarine, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    They came to LeBlanc as if in some forgotten melody -- songs of the Black Crane, and its titanic heart long-imprisoned within the deepest reaches of the Elderwood. Her sisters fell before the forest's defenders, but LeBlanc did find her prize... and now her patron has begun to wake, stirring itself from a dreamless slumber of unhallowed centuries.
    • Prestige Coven LeBlanc Prestige Coven LeBlanc
      Resurrected by the Black Crane, LeBlanc has rejoined her sisters with renewed purpose—yet the gifts of the Old Gods do not come without a price. As her body twists into new and strange forms, LeBlanc has discovered that she is the vessel through which her own dead god will return, and that it has granted her impossible power.
  • Coven Lissandra Coven Lissandra
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Aquamarine, Dark Ritual, Meteorite, Obsidian, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sandstone, Tanzanite
    They came to Lissandra as if in some waking dream—visions of the Ivory Stag, and the old magics long lost to antiquity. Even now, the ageless witch resides among those twisted shadows of the old growth, awaiting the day her dead gods spill forth from their rotten and accursed graves.
  • Coven Morgana Coven Morgana
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Dark Ritual, Obsidian, Pearl, Ruby, Tanzanite
    Queen of the coven, and patron of that called Ashen Owl. Morgana worshipped the Old Gods, and wept when they were slain -- betrayed when her sister murdered the primordial sun and delivered its power to an army of witch-knights. Now Morgana has returned to end the reign of mankind, returning the world's true lords to their rightful, mouldering thrones.
  • Coven Zyra Coven Zyra
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Catseye, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Tanzanite
    They came to Zyra from the roots and rocks -- stirrings of the Night Dove, its beating wings twisting the very land that is its grave. Tied now to the whispers beneath the loam, she rips away humanity's works of stone and glass, each broken vestige another step towards a world returned to nature.
    • Prestige Coven Zyra Prestige Coven Zyra
      The old gods stir, and rise once more to greet their sun -- but she is slain, devoured by the daughters of the eclipse. On this lightless day they will rage, and quake, and howl, so all men shall know their first and final doom.
Old Gods
  • Old God Ivern Old God Ivern
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Citrine, Emberwood, Emerald, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Tanzanite
    A nightmarish totem forged of witchcraft and forbidden incantations, Ivern stood among the Old Gods in the days before their destruction. Left inert for hundreds of years, he has risen along with his brethren to annihilate the paltry works of man.
  • Old God Malphite Old God Malphite
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Catseye, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Tanzanite
    Appearing to mortals as a Jet-Black Ibex, Malphite was an Old God of the mountain slain by the Eclipse order and cast down onto the rocks below. Death did not claim him, but the mountain did—and now he rises in its hulking earthen form, the land itself twisted with hatred and consumed by new and terrible hungers.
  • Old God Nocturne Old God Nocturne
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Aquamarine, Catseye, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    The great corpses of the Old Gods fed the land, and in time even the Elderwood would come to grow over their putrid rot–hiding it, perhaps, for a time. But the Gods never truly died and, with the resurgence of the Coven, one has risen again–Nocturne, the Eternal Nightmare.
  • Old God Warwick Old God Warwick
    Chromaskins.png Chromas: Aquamarine, Citrine, Dark Ritual, Emerald, Obsidian, Pearl, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire
    Once known as Father Wolf, Warwick roamed the wood and reveled in moonlight's bloody hunt. The Eclipse Order thought to slay him in his den and end his barbarity—but death means nothing to Old Gods, and he did not stay down. Father Wolf howls into the night once more, now slavering for the taste of human flesh.

The Spirit of Copperwood Glade
