Isyn had existed for as long as time itself. All they remember from their birth is that they were in a great mass of writhing blackness and then suddenly they were outside the mass fully formed. Their new surroundings held their attention span for less than a second before they grew bored and looked for something to do or someone to bother. The other divine beings provided a respite from their boredom and Isyn spent many millennia harassing and pranking them.
But, soon this too did not satiate their boredom, so they looked for another target. They found their mark in the newly emerged beings known as humans that Lyvona
was so carefully raising up from their meager beginnings. Isyn found this incredibly dull and began sowing chaos amongst these beings. They soon discovered that with just the right amount of manipulation, they could get two groups of humans to slaughter each other. And so, they spent the next few centuries causing massive amounts of bloodshed.
Until they came up with a brilliant idea to cause chaos in both the mortal and divine worlds: teach mortals to bend the ways of nature using runes. Lyvona, in her kindness, had instructed the humans how to use runes using their belief in symbols but, had neglected to tell humans that they could power runes by using their spirit both because it would go against nature and it would be harmful to humans. Isyn, however, had no such reservations.
Isyn journeyed far and wide, looking for the perfect person to 'gift' this knowledge to before stumbling across Leobwin Cenric
. Leobwin was an albino with a large red birthmark on his face, who because of his albinism and the eye-catching birthmark, had been ridiculed and teased throughout his life. Because of this ridicule, at the age of 15 years old, Leobwin left his village to go live in the mountains. It was at his remote cabin on the bank of a lake that Isyn appeared to him in the form of a beautiful goddess. They told him that his struggles had been a test of the divine beings to see if he was worthy enough to be given great knowledge they then told him that the mark on his face could be used to power any rune. As proof of this, they instructed him to draw the spirit rune, and the flame rune using his own blood and a fire erupted from the spot the rune was drawn on.
With great amusement, Isyn watched Leobwin immediately began going from town to town spreading the word of rune casting and eventually wound up with a group of thirty students. Six of which, Isyn was able to turn against their teacher with a few encounters where Isyn would be present when the students were using runes and made comments about paying a lot of coin for the service. As Remia Academy of the Arcane
was being built, and Rune Caster
s helped King Gautier Oweyn
. Isyn relished in the chaos but had to go into hiding because Lyvona and the other divine beings were actively searching for them. Because all of the rune casting was causing small ripples in nature that while unnoticeable would turn into devastating issues in the future.
