As the battle in the shadowsend foothills kept roaring into the darkness, and the might of the Raven Knights was marching up to wipe out the demonic army that your father had kept in check, the ritual that would take care of Gostrios was set in motion…
Many of the most devout clerics of the Raven Queen where there that night, some say the ritual was so powerful that a tenth of shadowcrossings where spawned into this world that day… All I can say for sure is that it was the day you were born.
You see, something that most of the sacred text left untold was, that Valestra was with a child in her womb, you my dear son, was but a month of being conceived that day.
As the ritual continued two things were made clear… the demonic forces in shadowsend where starting to become erratic and disorganized, their attacks began to appear apart from one another, their commanders started to rise to battle poorly protected and such, this was an opportunity your father would not let pass.
Even before the rest of the Raven Knights forces got there, he gathered his elite guard and raided to the front lines, taking down infernal warlords, commanders and lieutenants in his path… clearly opening a gap in the enemy’s formation in an attempt to slay Gostrios that night.
The other thing that became apparent with the ritual was that, the forces of your mother, in her current state were leaving her body as her exhaustion became more and more obvious.
Was in that moment, that the doors of the temple of fate trembled, when hordes of demons started rushing inside, killing everything they could in their way… They seemed rather aware of the temple defenses as they managed to past the traps and guards making their way in to the chant room.
Ritual coming to an end Enesstrere, broke the chant room entrances to see how the reflection of his master Gostrios image, was encased in a giant black crystal pending from the ceiling.
