On Pangaea, following the accidental death of his father at his hands, Kerebos Ikar joins a horde of killers. Over time, he works his way up the ladder until Kerebos becomes leader of the infamous Black Legion. Kerebos directs his brood by example, killing and plundering with no one safe from his warriors and no opposing army willing to fight this murderous unbeatable force. Perhaps Kerebos' only weakness is his recurring nightmare of dying in fire, but that only provides him with further impetus to destroy anyone in his path.
In Kwan Aharon, the Order of the White Flame recognizes Kerebos as the last great prophet. They send out a priest Antiphon al-Caliph to convert the killing machine onto the side of good. However, Antiphon has doubts regardless of the prophecy as he expects to not only fail but to die at the hands of the one he must convert.
