Many residents of the Ethernight Empire think, that they have already seen everything. That they know every mystery lying around the corner, every secret waiting to be revealed... Obviously Ignis' existence proves that they are wrong.
Nobody knows what Ignis exactly is, he always walks around heavily armored, roaming through the empty streets of the Ethernight. Some people tried to ask him why he does that, even capture him and even put him before the court, as if he was some sort of a spy. Everyone who tried to do that, were just burnt in monstrous flames, the people who witnessed this horrifying image, could only hear the cracking flame, and Ignis very calmly saying: "May the Soraya have mercy upon your soul...".
Who was Soraya you may ask? After the reports of the witnesses, the highest Wizards and Librarians were commanded to find it out, from any source they could find. After the long searching, it appeared that Soraya, the person who Ignis refers to, is an ancient goddess of the Sun, who was called as the bringer of life, and the guardian of all that lives in the Empire, while she was supposed to purify the evil of this world with the endless flames. But there was only one problem, Soraya is one of the ancient god, the last worshipers of her religion died almost a 1000 years ago. Could it be that Ignis is a member of some sort of ancient race? Just a wizard who went mad? Or maybe even the servant of Soraya herself? Nothing was clear enough, but the wizards knew one thing for sure, Ignis has to be stopped.
Unfortunately, when they were establishing the plan to capture Ignis, the invasion of Duskbringer came to this world, there was no time for playing around with one person when the entire army was sieging whole Empire. But there was still a light of hope, that maybe Ignis will change, and will help the Empire in it's dire times... That was until Ignis was seen burning the alive innocents, scorching fleeing peasants, fighting alongside Duskbringer... Nobody knew why did Ignis joined them, nobody even wanted to know why, because the truth was propably too painful, but for people it was too hard to focus on that question, as they were staring on what they used to call their homes, their possessions, all dissapearing within the fire.
