History/Background
Scrantas was a Dragon Knight of some repute. He was known not for his strength of arms, but for his cunning. He had outwitted any number of foes. His politics were just as strongs, as he helped maintain the peace between the Grey Spine Mountain Kingdoms. Yet for all the good he and the Dragon Knights did, the Darkness kept gaining ground. More Shadow Pools (like HellPits and Night Fog occured every year. More and more lands became corrupted, like The Dark Oak Forest. Something had to be done.

Yet the Council of Knights kept ignoring him and his dire warnings. They would only stay the course, following the traditions, and maintain the spirits of the people. They would take no precipitous action. The Council, even though it was two seats short, ignored the petions to install him to the council. He was the most qualified of his generation of Knights, everyone in The Order agreed. Except the Council.

He originally thought he would betray the Darkness and win over the Order. failed.
