Subject  My Life, and Quest

Born into a Bozak family, Kosch always felt different from the rest of them,
he always had this feeling that he was more than a simple draconian, he felt
that he had a special gift granted to him.

Through his childhood years, Kosch ignored this feeling and grew up has a
regular bozak draconian.

One day while looking up high into the night sky seeing the black moon
Nuitari, he felt a surge of power, confused by this he stayed sitting there in
deep meditation, thinking of what this could possibly be.

Has the days passed he realized he had been blessed with the gift of magic,
the art.  He trained both his body and soul in hopes to one day join the
Conclave, amongst the order of black robes.

After being accpted into conclave, Kosch, made a goal for himself, which is,
to further improve his gift, to go further in the art of magic.

Subject  The Hunt of the Shadow

As Kosch, walked through the city of Palanthas, something seemed different,
he sensed a large power somewhere near him.

He quickly cast a spell of invisibility and decided to hunt this horrible

Scanning and using his gift he located the beast at the Palanthas Library,
he went into a deep state of concentration then moments later began his attack
on this shadow beast.

Using his magical talents to blind and weaken the beast is appeared as
though he had the upper hand, but then in a sudden change of events the beast
had the upper hand and Kosch was forced to flee.

Quickling healing himself, his anger rose and his hands vibrated slightly,
his bloodlust had been stirred and his thoughts were only on the destrucction
of this beast.

While hunting this beast he accompanied two men, Kroog and Lanz and they
went together in search of this shadow.  Kosch was having trouble finding this
shadow beast but didn't give up.

Finally, following the blood of the beast and smelling its "unique" odor, he
found the beast in the outskirts of Palanthas.

Kosch, along with some new met friends, fought the beast and in the end they
were victorious.

With the Shadow beast slain at his feet, he grinned.  Leaving the dead
corpse Kosch returned to Palanthas, where he spend the rest of the day in
meditation.  He thanked Nuitari for gifting him with his abilities in the art
of magic.

Subject  A Mage's Decision

Kosch walked through the streets of Neraka, thinking about what had just
happenned only a few moments ago.  He stopped and sat down as he began to look

Kosch stood before Galaphale and Renli, two people who he had known for all of
 his days, and to who were almost brothers to him.

They spoke of how the order of mages known as the Conclave has collapsed and
thepossibility of leaving and becoming Renegades.

After hours of conversation, Kosch nodded then strolled off on his own.

Kosch arrived at the outskirts of Solace, he sat and began to think to

"It is true that my place is no longer in Conclave, but will i become a
Renegade....will i become the type of person I once hunted..."

Kosch seemed to be fighting a battle against his past.

"Would Nuitari forsake me if I left, would he abandon me...."

These questions and countless more seemed to run through Kosch's mind.

Hours passed, and the day turned to night, as Kosch finally stood up, 
reaching his decision.

"No more shall I look towards the past, but now....Now I will look towards
the  future"

Instantaneously, Kosch was summoned by Galaphale, nodding he bagan to
removehis black robes and drop all he had that belonged to the Conclave.

Kosch slowly made his way out of the tower of wayreth, his home for the past

Kosch nodded to Galaphale and Renli, as each of them were about to begin their
 new lives as Renegades, no longer bound by anything except their friendship
for one another.
