Marebell Von Truiheim
An elven woman who is the most powerful wizard yet to emerge. She survived the Dark Ages by concealing herself in an underground laboratory where she studied and researched arcane magic uninterrupted. Following the Treatise of Toleration she emerged and began to travel through Europe assisting the populace with her magic as well as teaching minor spells to those who wished to learn. Because of her efforts, arcane magic users began to be less and less feared as long as they weren’t malevolent. This came to an end during the siege of Budapest, where Marebell found herself trapped in the city by Bjorn the Binders army. Wishing to help against the invader she performed an incredibly powerful magical ritual which destroyed the city and army alike as well as created The Great Hellscar.
Theories on the creation of The Great Hellscar abound. Some think she did it on purpose, some thing the ritual went awry somehow, some think Marabell is still alive, some think she is now the Imperator of The Great Hellscar, you get the idea.
