This tale tells about Oerath Windsoul's downfall and about his miraculous return from the realm of shadows. Once, there was a time, when Oerath longed for Vael Nemathrel, The Guardian of Dreamworld, but he didn't have the courage to talk to her about his feelings. And Mógrah knew about this, and as a part of his own plans, he somehow convinced and corrupted Oerath's mind, by telling him that she would never love him, and being angered by Mógrah, Oerath attacked him, and so an unimaginable battle took place. It lasted for nearly three days, but in the end, Mógrah succeeded to take Oerath down. He was so blinded by anger that he couldn't see through his own errors and mistakes, and thus the battle was easily won by Mógrah. And then Mógrah unleashed a shivering cry that made Oerath to fall on his knees and for a moment, he was vulnerable. Mógrah didn't hesitate, and he used his only chance and breathed five evil spirits out off his mouth and used them to take control of Oerath's mind. Then, he ordered him to destroy the sun, so that The World of Arcadian would see the coming of night.
But when everything seemed to be lost, Vael Nemathrel appeared from out of nowhere, and before Oerath could reach the sun with his hands, she ran to him and said: 'Do not believe something a snake speaks out. Return to the light!'
And so he returned, and while the sun nearly blinded his eyes, it's light cleansed him off the evil spirits that were residing within, and purified his heart. And while life slowly returned to Oerath's body, he opened his eyes and saw Vael Nemathrel, and by taking hold of her hands, this is what he said to her, like he was singing a song.
Forgotten Memories, Forgiven Deeds
'Death is only a punishment...
Life is nothing, but part of a long dream...
And if you fail on your journey into the land of golden and distant stars...
You won’t ever be able to try again...
You won’t ever be able to float so far...
Because the sun is already descending beyond the realm of eternity..
And if I can't see it after this day, then my heart shall turn into ice forever..'
How could I forget those days of horror..
How I could ever forget all of the things that I've done..
It all happened so quickly, I lost the battle of my heart and mind..
But I know that I've to carry on, I just have to leave that part of my life behind
I was the darkness itself, I even tried to destroy the sun and it's golden light
And for my deeds, this world nearly saw the coming of eternal night
I had no soul, I had no own will, I was just an instrument of hate and lies
Dark were all of my dreams and thoughts.. And as I think about it now.. It was a curse to be alive..
But then.. I found something that awoke me and filled my heart with love and light's brightness..
I watched, with empty eyes, as you walked out of the darkness..
Being surrounded by a powerful aura.. You shone like a bright evening star..
And as you touched my pale and cold face with your soft hands.. It was enough to purify my heart..
And so I returned.. From the realm of night.. My soul didn't burn.. I finally saw the light..
Xathor always used to say: 'When you're lost and nowhere to be seen.'
'Do not lose hope, and remember to stay away from the shadows that will try to devour you as whole.. No matter how you cry or scream.'
And when I finally opened my eyes, I saw her standing in front of me..
She smiled at me, she said I was free and that none could corrupt my heart ever again..
And then I looked at the sun, and I knelt before her and before the dawn, and I whispered to them both, asking for forgiveness for everything I have done..
But both of them said: 'Do not apologize to us, but to the people, who were worried while you were away. Win back their trust, before the arrival of dusk, and then you'll have to battle against him after this day. But remember, he's a soulless being, and none has ever won him in battle. But do not falter, use your dark dream as your strength, and prove that no king can rule forever. Beat him in fight, restore the power of light. Use all of your might and take away his power to rule the shadows of night.'
And so he challenged Mógrah and won that battle, and managed to banish him back to his Hollow Halls. And in a short amount of time, the wounds of Arcadian and it's people healed, and everyone started to remember Oerath and who he used to be, before he lost his soul to Mógrah. He used to be a savior, a hero among the people of Arcadian and thanks to Vael Nemathrel, that is what he shall always be remembered for. And after the tragic events of those days, he has never doubted himself again, nor he ever will.
But no matter how he tries to forget, he won't ever be able to erase those memories from his memory..
But being forgiven by everyone, lighted a spark of hope inside his heart that can never fade or be destroyed

(Some of you may find it a bit cheesy, but I've said it already and I may as well say it for one more time. I created the character, before I took it's name to use. So I'm just kind of trying to be one hell of a guardian in real life!) ^^
Also coming as a journal entry.
I hope you'll like of it. Possible spelling mistakes shall be corrected in a day.
