The Last Empire
General Finx Lorassin, Grand Master of the Imperial Society of Warmages.
General Finx Lorassin, Grand Master of the Society, based in the dungeons of the Citadel in Harsell, is the undisputed authority of the ISoW. He is also an accomplished engineer and oversees the impressive Dwarven waterworks controlling all running water in Harsell.
As a young man he was recruited into the Society and fought in numerous battles before the fall of the Empire. He was nearly killed in a magnificent duel with a monstrous Uruk augmented by a Sorcerer of the Iron Circle. He slew the beast but its sorcerous ally struck Finx with a claw of flame across his face laying him low. A troop of nearby dwarves was so inspired by the battle they spent 13 dwarven lives to retrieve the hero’s body. Barely alive, Finx was taken by the dwarves to Harsell. He was delivered to the Citadel’s Signal Tower where several Protectors took him into their care. Years later he had recovered to the point of being able to fight again.
General Lorassin is the only known member of the ISoW to have survived the fall of the Empire. He has since re-founded the Society in Harsell having trained several dozen apprentices over the last 50 years. He still lives and leads the Society at the age approaching 80.
