Arkt is The Shadow God, ruler of the ruined kingdom of Arktwend. He is also called the Fallen Arch-Seraph, the former war marshal of the Gods.
In Service of the GodsEdit
Exemplary Subject of the GodsEdit
At some point, the Light-Born used to place almost absolute trust in Arkt. He was their war marshal and the one who was sent on a very important mission of accompanying Narathzul and Zelara on their task to retrieve the Soul Flayer.
Affair with ZelaraEdit
Being the trusted captain of The Light-Born, Arkt was sent on a mission to help Narathzul Arantheal and Zelara to retrieve an ancient artifact that has the power to kill the gods, the Soul Flayer. During the quest Arkt became involved with Narathzul Arantheal's loved one, Zelara. According to Narahtzul, it was Arkt who started flirting with Zelara. When they finally found the Soul Flayer, Arkt told Narathzul about his affair with Zelara. Seeing Arkt and Zelara clung together, made Narathzul's blood boil and an uncontrollable wrath took control over him, he fatally wounded Zelara with the Soul Flayer. Enraged Narathzul wanted to punish Arkt as well, but he managed to flee. According to Arkt, it was Narathzul's fault and his overriding ambition to pursue his own goals that triggered Zelara's betrayal. When we first encounter Arkt during Into the Forsaken Country he creates an impression that Zelara was of minor importance to him, as he calls her 'naive and simple-minded', but it might only serve as a purpose to irritate Narahtzul more. Later in the story, while standing at her grave, he seems deeply touched by her unfortunate lot.
As he is the Shadow Gods, he supports Merzul and Narathzul Arantheal's attempts at dethroning the Light-Born. But he will concentrate some of his efforts on preventing Narathzul from becoming the Shadow God.
