History: When the Immortals decreed that Nithia must be destroyed in the Outer World, for all its deadly blasphemy, only the town of Ranak and its people survived. Ranak was removed by distance from the corruption of the rest of the empire, and its ruler, Kepher, was a solitary, secretive man who was untempted by the allure of the Entropic powers that seduced his fellow leaders to evil and insanity.
Alone among his people, Kepher was allowed to remember the story of the Outer World nation of Nithia, that he might keep them from repeating their past mistakes. Too, he found himself elevated to the station of Pharaoh of these people. Thus, roused from his innermost solitude, Kepher was able to guide his people in this strange, new world- to survive it, and tame it, and make it their own.
His reign was not fraught with the perils of nature alone, for an ancient artefact of Entropic evil had somehow escaped the notice of the saviour Immortals of Nithia and threatened to undo all that had been done to preserve the nation. Playing and preying upon the natural rivalry of the followers of Pflarr and Rathanos, the artefact spurred the two sects into increasingly aggressive and violent acts against one another. Civil war threatened the still vulnerable new realm.
After painstaking investigation, Kepher was able at last to identify the true source of impending disaster, and to destroy the Entropic artefact, though at the cost of his own mortal life. As his spirit left his dying body, he was greeted by the Immortals, who ushered him into their ranks, for Kepher had- unknowingly- completed the trial of the Epic Hero.
Personality: Having died and risen to Immortality in spite of it, Kepher became the patron of death and resurrection – the embodiment of the triumph of will and life over Entropy. He adopted the name Orisis and made it his special mission to ensure that the evils that destroyed ancient Nithia would never be allowed to manifest again, just as he did in his mortal life. Orisis’ introspective and secretive nature makes him very well chosen to safeguard the dangerous knowledge that led to the destruction of ancient Nithia, and his strong sense of duty ensures that he is ever vigilant and ready to take whatever measures necessary to fulfil his charge.
