Subject     Yoden's back story

Yoden was the last in the long line of his clan's champions, a Minotaur that was supposed to raise his clan to new heights. Until one day he was betrayed by a trusted friend and sold Into slavery to fight in an arena where every fight could end in his death. Yoden excelled in combat and soon the crowds loved him. Yoden was sent to the front lines as a slave-soldier. At first the Minotaur fought with joy, but the the death toll began to rise over the years it began to wear him down. When one day seeing a Minotaur (owned by another master) kill a weak and defenseless opponent Yoden rebelled and slew him against his own masters wishes. This act branded him a renegade to the army commanders and he was sent back to the fighting pits. As punishment he was to fight against and assortment of other Minotaur and ogres counting five in total. But even facing these odds he prevailed the victor and the crowd cheered for him once again. Furious that he had lived Yoden was beaten then sold yet again but this time to a man who was less cruel to his slaves then any master Yoden had known before. Striking up a friendship of sorts (as much as a slave can be friends with his master) Yoden gained his freedom after just 5 short years but only after acting the assassin and killing anyone his master marked for death in the most brutal and bloody ways imaginable. Now free he vowed vengeance on the one(s) responsible for his slavery and to all those how hurt him over the years. "Finding" the Dark Queen in his years as a slave he turned to her for guidance and strength even now as he ventured out into the world After the personal war he created while seeking revenge was over, Yoden traveled through the lands looking for a place to fit in, but his past hunted him in the form of a group of Minotaur wanting justice, or so they believed, for the dishonorable way Yoden had killed their commander. This hunt, from those whom Yoden had once counted as allies, forced him to go on the offensive and confront the his precursors. In the end Yoden confronted them, only to be forced into a duel against the Minotaur that had been dogging him. From that duel Yoden emerged the victor, but at the cost of his mate, Nola and a follower Arkar.
