Story[]

Early Life[]

Tristan is the son of King Gran and Queen Floran and older brother of Jan. When his father was assassinated by Gares of Hyland, he was whisked away by his wet-nurse Banya. He was placed under the protection of Estrada, a Xenobian knight loyal to the late king, and hidden far from the palace.

As a youth, Tristan was trained and mentored by Estrada. He did not learn of his royal lineage until his teens.

Wedding in Malano[]

Hearing the news of a rebellion being formed he waited in Amad for Destin, the leader of the rebels. But when he was told that Duke Apros, a noble who betrayed his father during the great war was to be married, Tristan could not pass up the chance at revenge. The prince planned to use the crowds gathering around Malano to his advantage in an assassination attempt. Luckily for him, the rebels found him at Malano before he could risk his life unnecessarily. There they gave him the Key of Destiny and joined forces with him. Tristan sated his vengeance on Apros and moved his sights toward the highlands.

Fort Shulamana[]

The rebels reached Fort Shulamana believing rumors that Queen Floran had been imprisoned there for twenty five years. They defeated the Deva Previa and found while the rumor of her being at the fort was true, Tristan's mother was dead. After his mourning, he gave of the Three Mystic Treasures, the Mystic Armband, to Destin, and focused his rage at finishing off the Empire once and for all.

His Father Avenged[]

Prince Gares, the black knight who assassinated his father was the next victim of the future king, who was finally destroyed at the Temple Shalina. He also confronted Rashidi, his father's former friend, and exchanged words with the sage who had betrayed his father and Xenobia. The rebels succeeded in destroying Rashidi and the dark god Diablo that had been resurrected.

Crowned[]

After the war was over, Tristan was crowned king of Xenobia and married Rauny Vinzalf, uniting the lands of Hyland and Xenobia under one kingdom, the Kingdom of New Xenobia. With the Three Mystic Treasures, the Grail, the Mystic Armband and Brynhildr, his rule was a peaceful one and he was loved by all of his subjects.
