Tarik was killed over a hundred years ago. His body was found by a scavenger party in an unmarked mausoleum far to the south of Sanctuary. His skeleton was encased in rusty armor and piles of broken weapons and shattered shields were heaped within his rocky tomb. Guessing that Tarik was a great hero they brought his body back to the Seers who resurrected him into one of the “Risen.”
The Risen have no memory of their previous life and are loyal to the White Seers. Tarik is one of the oldest Risen within the city, having served in the cities defense for more than twenty years with still no memory of who he was or where he came from.
