Ark is a large very well built man. Standing more under 2 meters in height his form is heavy in muscle and power. Still though his movements betray a warriors skill and speed to him. His movements waste no energy. His eyes show his arrogance and to the trained warrior he gives off that feeling of restrained violence. His hair is brown and cut short. His eyes a light blue. He wears lamellar armor and carries on his back the powerful grand daiklaive known as Grand Lightning.

In the northestern tundra there was a small village. Long had these people held to certain views that the end of the world would come on the 800th year of the Empresses's reign. The end though would be stopped by the return of the Immaculte Dragon's themselves taking human form once more. The people of this village dedicated their lives to training themselves so that when the time came that they might join the armies the Dragons would raise and help save the world from its end.

A powerful warrior even when young Ark held much promise. His short temper and impulsiveness were troubling to the elders but they felt age would calm him down. It was tragic then that wyld barbarians came upon their lands. Sent fleeing by the forces of the Bull they had travelled far from their normal homes and attacked the village. With their mutations and inhuman strengths their victory was inevitable. However Ark who was defending the shrine in the village where they kept a holy weapon of times past Exalted. He saw himself though with these powers as a terrible demon and picking up the Orichalcum blade he killed villager and mutant alike. With his powers he rampaged around blindly trying to be the demon he thought Anathema to be. It was only the calming words of a Zenith he encountered that saved him from darkness but at the terrible price of being taken by a Wyld Hunt called in to stop his predations.

He hates the Realm and the Immaculate lies now and wants to topple them but his old youthful ambitions have surfaced and he moves on now trying to make himself into that ultimate warrior that can hold off the world's end.

Plot Hooks In a previous life he had developed the Thunderous Swordsman Style of martial arts and now in the second age that rare style is being seen again.
