Heroes of the War of Wrath
Have you started reading The Forgotten Hero? Minor spoilers for this book are below. If you haven’t, now’s a great time to start!
The second story starts with Mordred recollecting his memories after the War of Wrath, a large continent-scale war in which the many kingdoms of the realm work together to defeat the Dark Lord Hadron and his minions.
After Mordred defeats the dark lord, him and the other adventurers sit down by a campfire and reflect on those they have lost.
To capture these characters, I wanted to use an AI tool to generate them. In previous posts I have used DALL-E 2 but this time I am trying MidJourney. I wanted to try a different style that looked more like medieval art, resembling the kinds of art that may have been created in their honor.
Valerie is a bard from the northern lands of Arnoria. She was known to be very friendly and understanding towards everyone. Through her music, she helped to spread news of the adventurers and recruit more soldiers to their side against the great evil. Sadly, she lost her life during the war.
Edward was a druid living among nature in the Woods of Kyskh until the war reached him. His owl, Harrold, served as a useful scout to observe approaching enemies and prepare soldiers for battle. Sadly, he fell in the final battle.
Sylvia is a cleric who studied under the tutelage of elders in Wyndhall. Specifically she gained mastery in the dark art of necromancy. She used her skills during the war to raise and interrogate defeated allies of the dark lord.
Pike was a paladin from the underground dwarven cities within the Green Mountains. He was a man who cared deeply about justice and tried to save as many lives as he could with his family’s prized pickaxe. Sadly, he fell in battle before the war ended.
Trok is a skilled wizard from the southern tip of the dwarven kingdom with a knack of brewing potions. In addition to using her skills in combat, she has led the nursing guild to aid the many soldiers who were injured during battles.
Pod was a dwarven monk who meditated daily in a state of near-isolation. He only saw his master once a week. However, once his master was killed by Hadron, he found a new purpose. Using only his fists, he goes into every battle with the memory of those that have been lost.
Suiadan was a ranger from a small elven village in the west. During battles he’d look for a tall tall or mountain to climb. From that perch he’d fire arrows at enemy battalions. He fought loyally to protect his friends even at the cost of his own life.
Haldaraina is a rogue skilled in the arts of deception and camouflage from the elven capital city Galadhrin. She used these skills to sneak behind enemy lines and steal battle plans.
Lancaeron is a well-read sorcerer who has spent decades studying elemental magic under the greatest elven specialists. After aquatic attacks on his school in Heledhrim, he decided to join the adventurers in this war.
Kevin started his work as a mere sellsword but quickly advanced through the ranks as a skilled knight due to his intelligence. He took the lead of general in many fights and led the adventurers to a final victory.
Zachary was a fearless barbarian from the dry plains of Rohenna. He charged on his horse into every battle, even sadly being killed by Hadron in the final battle.
