Legacy of Fire
Fallen Templar of the Five Winds
One of the mythical Templars of the Five Winds, Kardswann is a scout and traveler of the planes. Kardswann’s weapon is an elaborate greataxe, and he represents the south wind, the most well-travelled and worldly of the winds. He was recently under the mental domination of Xulthos, a daemon imprisoned in the crypt below Kelmarane’s ruined church of Sarenrae. Kardswann was freed from the Xulthos’ control briefly when Sterno, using the memories of Vardishal, admonished Kardswann for failing in his sacred duties as a Templar of the Five Winds. Kardswann was chained before he lost control again as the heroes went to slay Xulthos. Finally free from Xulthos’ control, but having long strayed from his path, Kardswann left the prime material plane to notify his mistress, the djinni princess Nefeshti that Vardishal is dead but that his weapon and memories are stored within Sterno.
