Valadaar, Hand of Ashantar


A warrior that never tremble, a warrior that always line forward, a warrior that always spearheading the battle. His bravery is unimaginable... It's Valadaar, the Hand of Ashantar...


Valadaar was born to Verthas and Rumana during Emperor Rethernas I. Both of his parents are a famous merchant, and are well recognised in all over the empire. His father is a honest jewel merchant and her mother was an outstanding fabric merchant. In short, Valadaar was born in a rich family. At the age of 8, he was enrolled in Ashantar Merchantry Academy, to study the basics of merchantry. He studied in the academy for 4 years.

At the age 12, he grew bored on merchantry and had grew passion for the art of war. Realising his talents wasn't on merchantry, Verthas sent Valadaar in Ashantar High Military Academy, where all those who graduate from this academy are considered the best. He spent the rest of his teenage life on the academy, learning and studying the path of war. This includes learning on every aspects of warfare, including on how to maneuver an army on the battlefield.

8 years after spending a lot of time on the academy, at the age 20, Valadaar finally had a chance to lead a squad of Aran on the battlefield against an Orcish Horde. His talents on warfare are outstanding, and it's seen by Emperor Rethernas I. Those who under his leadership felt twices safer than the other. Astonished by Valadaar's ability on the battlefield, Emperor Rethernas I had grant him a galleon and he named it Sea Shackles. At the age of 24, during his marriage with Selna, Valadaar was given 6 argosy (trading vessel/ship) by his parents as wedding gift.

After been given an authority for whole one armada, Valadaar bestowed with a rank of Admiral. His armada consists of 6 other galleons and 24 frigates, which is one of the biggest armada assemblies in Ashantar. And together, their armada was named The Swimming Sea Dragon. 

Valadaar was killed during the Battle of Plugan Plains. He was killed by an Orcish Warlord while managed to slay four more Orcish Warlord on the process.


Valadaar really like to equip himself with sword and a shield. But sometimes, he uses greatsword onto the battlefield. His passion with sword based weapon is very deep. At the age of six, Valadaar always ask his father for a wooden sword of different designs for him. To fulfill his needs, his father had hired a private wood carver to design a wooden swords for him. He had his first sword from his father, when he was around 18 years old. And he uses that sword until the end of his life. He named it Fit Sapa means "My Father"

The sword had a unique engravings on the steel, and at the bottom of the handle was a head of a lion. In every edge of the steel was smooth enough. Overall, the sword is rather unique.

Second wave was followed by Awbsar with another 40 000 soldiers. His leadership that day was highlighted, by whole people of Griffinia. The outcome of the battle is won and Arachnid Sidia was captured. Sidia was the first of the Arachnid captured and to be seen by all human that time.

But this time, they intend to took and seize the border once and for all. In this battle, Valadaar was helped by his fellow associates, Bolen, Conrad and Awbsar. In total, they led 260 000 soldiers.

And at the peak of the battle, Valadaar was killed by Warlord Gonlar, but managed to kill the other three. His death was one of Ashantar biggest lost ever. Although, he died on the battlefield, his death wasn't a waste, his associates managed to win the battle and forced Warlord Gonlar to retreat.

"If I would be given a chance to return to that day, I would gladly took his place"


"All of Ashantarian better remember his heroic grandeur, or else, they all cursed!"


"I will make sure that my future descendant will avenge you, my friend"

Yatar wrote in one of hos journal;

I swore, so far, non can challenge my brother' prowess on the battlefield. Even though his dead is a huge lost, but I never regret for having a sibling like him.

Bolen - Valadaar's close friend and neighbour. A mighty warrior that always stands beside Valadaar, no matter where he go.

Conrad - Valadaar's cousin. A fierce warrior, that even an orc feared him.

Awbsar - One of Valadaar's associates. They first met at Ashantar High Military Academy and soon work together to vanquish their foes. The father of Suhym, Sufyn and Suhyl.


* Saving Princess Velerena of Griffinia

* Vanquishing ArchLord Derenar's army on the northern part of the Empire


Valadaar is a high adaptable melee fighter that excel in full strength to take down his enemies. With a great combination of offense and defensive ability, Valadaar can hold any position longer than any other hero.

Valadaar's defensive capability makes him one of the recommended off-tank. Apart from absorbing a large amount of damage, Valadaar could also deals a massive amount of damage onto his foes.

But due to the lacking of mobility ability, Valadaar is very hard to bail out from the battle. Making him vulnerable enough, if he got caught up on a group fight. Hero with disable ability, is one of his great weakness.

The only way, that Valadaar can exceed this weakness, is to launch a heavy damage onto his enemies, before they even do anything to disable him.


Ground Erosion - Casting this ability, will make Valadaar to jump on the desired location. Dealing 125 physical damage on the area. The ground will be erode, for 6 seconds, and slowing down the victims movement and attack speed by 25%.

Sword Enthusiast - Any opponents that are using a sword typed weapon, will have their damage reduced by 10%. While Valadaar gain extra 40 damage for as long as the enemy that are armed with a sword is nearby. If he managed to kill the enemy, he will gain that 10% as a bonus damage permanently.


Unswerving Loyalty - Valadaar's loyalty to the empire makes him gain 60 bonus armor and have his health increased by 150, each time he levelled up.

Highest of the Admirals - Valadaar can call upon his mighty ship, The Swimming Sea Dragon to bombard the desired location. Any victims that caught up on the area will be damaged. Each cannon ball deals 345 damage. If Ground Erosion were cast during this time, the ability will deal extra 200 bonus damage.

What an interesting format for a character write-up! I love the "Battles attended" and the "peer quotes"! Terrific that.

"Conrad - Valadaar's cousin. A fierce warrior, that even an orc feared him."

my favourite line :p

Everyone should write up a valadaar backstory and post it! :p we could make a '30 Valadaar backstories' sub!

Or the next quest should be to write a backstory for different citadelians! :p

Well, you could use that limited votes, to vote other submissions that is way better than this one. I mean, I'm pretty a newb myself.

Or, how about you start your own submission?

Maybe you could share your thoughts or ideas? And don't worry about the people around the citadel, all of them are friendly, they might leave suggestions too... XD

March 24, 2013, 1:28
Haha... Been stuck with that name.

Try to write your own submission colleague.

And BTW, not to flood the "Recent Citadel Activity" you can use the chatbox down below, if you don't see it. Which happens to me recently. It has a "pop" sound when someone sent their messages....

Thanks for the vote...
