Personal history

Jahn Hurs was born in Hinec, Heskia, to poor farmers. In order to escape poverty, Hurs trained for the ecclesial priesthood. At an early age, he traveled to Drestadt, where he supported himself by volunteering and serving in orphanages and poor houses in the slums of the city. His conduct was well received by many and Hurs made a name for himself via his kind nature and generosity as well as strong moral convictions. After years in the employ of various Ecclesial priests, Hurs having been ordained a cleric, began work in the area.

After years of working inside the Ecclesia, Hurs gradually developed many opposing views of the organization, such as their strong influence on the politics and worldly activity of the Kingdom and its day-to-day functions. Hurs also disavowed the ideas of the Ecclesia that stated that the two branches of the faith were separable and that they were to remain so for all time. These beliefs soon turned into statements as Hurs began preaching his interpretation of the faith to his growing list of followers, the first Hurrites. Hurs also espoused apocalyptic beliefs in the coming end of days, something heretical to the belief in the Ecclesia which did not believe in an apocalypse.

Hurs eventually caught the attention of Ecclesial authorities and was immediately demanded to recant his statements and make a public offer of penance for his heresy. When Hurs refused, he was arrested along with some of his followers who refused to part from him. While imprisoned, Hurs is reported to have continued to preach sermons from his jail cell and according to one account, to have been rendered blind after being hit in the head by one of his jailers. Hurs' trial was commenced and presided over by King Reiner Hohengoff. Hurs' works were read aloud to a largely antagonistic jury and after an hour of deliberating, they found him guilty and he was sentenced to be burnt at the stake.

During Hurs' execution, he is said to have both regained his sight and to have uttered several prophecies about the coming conflicts over his teachings. One such prophecy was supposed "You kill a weak goose but have brought a flock of more powerful birds upon yourselves." Hurs is a play on words of Hus, the Heskian word for Goose. Hurs was finally executed and his ashes were thrown into the Rhor in an attempt to prevent his remains from being venerated by his followers.

Hurs' death did not have the desired effect as soon after, his followers rose up in revolution, and soon, years of war would be upon the Kingdoms of Tiranar, Menscha, and Jurane and the Hurrites would gain victories in Menscha and Jurane while their efforts in Tiranar would be ferociously stamped out.
