Cole's Back Story Cole was once a simple kid living a normal life on the outskirts of the town of Iron fang, but after witnessing his fathers death by the hands of a paladin. He was crushed and enraged so he took it upon himself to continue his fathers study and get revenge on the god who order the paladin to kill Coles father. Through constant trial and error of practicing the dark arts over the years and by meeting a special someone Cole transcends into something greater than a normal lich, far more powerful.

Angel's Back Story Angel had a wife called Mia but she passed away shorty from Pneumonia after Cole was born. After the death of Mia, Angel became depressed and started studding dark magic to bring back the soul & body back and heal her sickness. But a villager that was passing by and heard that he's practicing necromancy then ratted out to the paladin's god and was sentenced to death. The day before Cole's 16th birthday a white armored paladin busted through the door and rushed Angel stabbing him with a claymore, ending his life...

DM Notes Cole is used for the story of "The Holy War" and is not used in normal game play, for he is not meant to be a BBEG but he can turn into one by the players, you can add him as a king of "Deaths Door" or something else feel free. Cole's personality is that he withholds information to untrustworthy people to inshore that he doesn't get betrayed and he's a great strategist, but he can over strategizes being too prepared. Cole has a wife named Sarah and two kids, now adults. A half-elf girl named Luna and a half-elf boy named Durlan. Cole's father, Angel is an elf and his mother, Mia is a human. Cole has one old friend, named Doitil who is a Dominion Overlord, but Cole fears that he may cross-paths and may not see eye-to-eye, so Cole strategizes a way to bring him to his knees without killing him.
