The Invasion of Miefarr
The first Emperor of the Tarisians, Gora-Tari was said to be the most powerful warrior on the Tarisian continent. When the whole land was composed of squabbling tribes, it was Gora-Tari who united them under a single banner, wielding the legendary blade Haticlar. Scholars disagree on which region of Tarisia Gora-Tari hailed from, but the most common legend in the Empire says he was born in the North.
Although the legend says that he was a mighty warrior, it explicitly states that Gora-Tari wielded Haticlar in only one battle, when he dueled the Great Dragon Mannah for control of the Tarisian mountains. Many conflicting accounts of the battle are found scattered throughout Tarisian lore, but all agree that the blade Haticlar was drawn and used to sever the dragon’s head, and that Gora-Tari emerged unscathed. Some heretical groups, such as the Order of the Winged Traitor believe that the true reason for Gora-Tari’s victory stemmed from a Draconic bloodline that runs through the Tarisian rulers to this day, and is responsible for their notable Arcane talents.
