The Northern Empire was the last great nation to fall before the armies of Kyros the Overlord. Led by Blood Ruin, then Archon of War, the Overlord's armies expected the North to fall within a year. They did not count on the tactical brilliance of general Graven Ashe. Outnumbered and cut off from supplies, the great general led his troops in a holding action that stymied all of Blood Ruin's plans. It was during this desperate defense that Graven Ashe began to manifest the abilities that would allow him to challenge Blood Ruin for the mantle of Archon of War. After defeating Blood Ruin, Graven Ashe was defeated by several of Kyros' Archons and brought before the Overlord in chains. No one knows what Kyros said to the general that day, but Ashe emerged a loyal servant of the Overlord. With his surrender, the Northern legions bent knee to the Overlord as well, and the last great Empire of Terratus fell to Kyros' rule.
