As Synial approached the secluded tent he sensed that his great quest was nearing its end. His months of toil were near completion and so was his quest. A quest of faith, a quest that took him to distant lands and challenged both his intellect and physical prowess.
Synial handed over the broken crown retrieved during his epic battle with the Otis Commander to the mysterious crafter who stood before him. Some words were said and the Crown of Sahar appeared on his person.
He felt a strange sensation as the crown sat atop his head, a fleeting moment of change passed and he felt different.
“Greetings brave warrior” Synial recognized his Queen as soon as she appeared and fell to his knees.
Queen Nara studied the warrior, he held the courage to stand before the strongest yet the humility to fall before his Queen. He will do, she mused, he will do just fine.
“Rise Lord Synial, First of the Order and Protector of the Golden Doors”
“My Queen?” He stammered as he slowly rose and met her glaze. “What order do you speak of?”
“The Lotus Guardians are an ancient order who give their life to the protection of the Lotus Temple and give their life they did, to a person, as Elara fell.”. The Queen continued. “You see my Lord, there are those that do not hold the love for Toulan that we do and seek to destroy it.”
“I heard tales of Elara and the Lotus Temple in my youth but what threat do they hold to Toulan?”
“They are not tales, my sweet child but fragments of a history seldom told. A history of our shared origins and the role we Safians play in the protection of this realm.
Queen Nara regaled him with her account of the history of Elara and it’s invasion by the evil corporation. How her disciple known as DEC had helped her to escape and sealed Elara for it’s protection.
“But why me? Why now?”Humble in his confidence yet courageous in his character, thought Nara.
“The Lotus Temple, whilst being the spiritual home of our ancestors, also serves another purpose. Through inter-dimensional doors that draw on the power of Nawa we have imprisoned the most dangerous of creatures from Toulan. We serve as protector and enslave the evil lest they return.”
The Queen Continued “As to why now, well many moons ago I became aware that the temple had somehow been infiltrated and the Imprisoned freed. This poses a great threat to our realm and I fear the attacks may one day be too much if we do not act now.”
“But my Queen, why me?” Asked Synial.
“It became clear that the Lotus Guardians were needed once more and so we devised a scheme to find the most worthy among my subjects to lead the Great Order. You completed this quest of might, intelligence and great courage. You were also the first. There will be those that follow, of that I am sure. They will seek glory and fame but yours was a selfless act in the service of others.”
“The Great Lord Sahar was the first of the Guardians and by retrieving his crown an enchantment of sorts has been bestowed upon you. You see only a Guardian can retrieve the key parts needed to construct the Golden key required to enter the Golden Chambers alone. It is only you and those that follow who are worthy of deciding who can enter as a solo warrior.”
“Do you Lord Synial accept this great burden and vow to protect the Lotus Temple and clear it’s chambers of the enslaved and repel the invaders?”
“Yes my Queen, I am and forever will be your humble servant”
