Avnon Des the Seer is the First Demarch of the conclave of the Hall of Shadows. One day he arose from his meditation to find himself, his temple and its inhabitants moved to the Shadow Plane. Kesson Rel is the first Chosen of the Shadow God, marked as a heretic by the Demarchs because he drank from the Chalice and transformed into a creature of shadow. He seeks his revenge by bringing the temple from Elgrin Fau, the City of Silver, to the Shadow Plane, and soul binding a shadow dragon, Furlinastis, into bringing him one of the priests every day to kill them in front of him, since his oaths prevent him from killing them himself. And so the dragon killed, while looking for a way out of the soul magic.
