A God of long ago pledged an oath to the first of the Druid Clans to become one with the Savior in their time of great need. Shamed that his kind turned their backs on the blood of the innocents in a time of Great War and greed, he turned away from immortality to become more like man. He eagerly watched his children waited until he was once again called upon. When the battle cry was heralded he stepped forward to help fulfill the prophesy of those that walked the Isle of Green. A child that should not have lived, Harrison grew up happy among his family until his mother's disappearance and his father's death.
