    There once was an intrepid hero named Beard who was incomparable to anyone because no one was at the same caliber as he was, as he excelled at everything he did. Beard was the savior of Arlor after Kraag was attacked by skeletons and after Shuyal became a breeding ground for necromancers and shadow wolfs. All of Arlor envied Beard for he was very famous, courageous, and rich. Although Beard was well known for his valiant endeavors throughout Arlor, Beard was most famous for his thick, luscious beard.

    Although many envied Beard and his beard, others had enmity towards him and his prized possession. One of Beard’s biggest haters was a formidable opponent named Mustache. Mustache incessantly tried to grow himself a mustache as luscious as Beard’s beard, but he was simply unable to do so. Mustache was very jealous of Beard’s beard and of all the recognition Beard received, so Mustache devised an assassination attempt on Beard’s beard. Once word went throughout Arlor of Mustache’s malicious plan, riots broke out in Kraag, Windmoore, Kelys, and Tindirin. The mob of Beard supporters inundated Mustache with hate mail and death threats, and because of this Mustache surreptitiously created an elite group called “The Prophecy” to do his dirty work, and their first task was to eliminate Beard’s beard from the picture.

    The tragic event occurred at The Chancel of Light during a promotion ceremony held for Beard to become a Luminous Templar. Beard received his halo from the Benediktus, when suddenly “The Prophecy” entered the ceremony without an invite. The presence of “The Prophecy” left many ambivalent as to why they came, but as soon as they realized the reason they had come it was too late. Beard’s beloved beard was incinerated by a magic spell many call fireball. To this day Mustache and “The Prophecy” were never tried for their crimes, and Beard was never seen again without his beard. Many folktales that are spread throughout Arlor say Beard fled to the perilous Caves of Tarewa and was killed by Arachna’s insatiable appetite for Arlorians. Beard’s beard later became the symbol of peace and prosperity for all of the land of Arlor and many waited for Beard’s return to the spotlight, but as years went on Beard’s once existing fame diminished and Arlorians stopped sharing his story. He was seen as a coward and anyone telling his story would be tortured and eventually brutally murdered by “The Prophecy” which became the enforcers of law by the new self-proclaimed ruler of Arlor, Mustache.
