Validuss - The Begining

Validuss – The Awakening

When it became apparent that Validuss had the gift of Druidism he was taken to Moonglade where he would train. The elders would attempt to train him to love all life and nature, no matter what there intent. The young Night Elf struggled with this concept as there was so much pain in the lands as innocents would be slaughtered in there thousands by the Horde. One day Validuss was training his healing abilities, on the outskirts of the Forest, a messenger came to him. The messenger was a spirit of old. He was wearing regal robes and showed the signs of wisdom along his strong jaw.

“Fool Rise up!!! I am Cenarius, Demi-God of Azeroth and I can have no higher place among the druids. Do you begin to understand your gift child? Do you mock the innocents that are slain by murderous monsters every day? In druidism there is nothing which I do not know and in the beginning I was taught by the great Ysera. She was the Green Dragon Aspect. The Elders of this Land also know her as Ysera the green or She of the Dreaming. She showed me the ways of the Emerald dream and the Natural World. Child not all are followers in this manner, some have a different gift and it is fool hardy to ignore it. There is a Rage within you boy and I command you use it to become a mighty Feral. I will bless you with the knowledge and as for the rest your heart will guide you.”

The spirit said in a gentle but commanding voice. Validuss was frozen to the spot, Cenarius was the patron of the Druids and he could not believe it was possible for him to see him. He considered that he may be going insane.

“Do you mock me? I have come to move you to a greater path and you doubt me? Enough of this”

Cenarius then moved towards Validuss and laid his hand on his brow. With that there was a bright light that filled the forest and all manner of animals could be heard as if talking in a universal tongue to him. They spoke with wisdom for hours about the art of different feral forms till eventually a shroud of darkness fell. Validuss awoke, all was quiet as Moonglade slept. He spun round to face Cenarius there was nothing. Again he considered if he was going mad but he could feel power coursing through his veins. His sight was much keener and he realised that he was in the form of a black panther. He was quick, agile and powerful. He had heard stories of the mighty Feral Druids imagined in his wildest dreams he could become one. He spent hours wandering the forest, exploring the forms he had been taught by Cenarius and the ancient animals of the world. For ten years after this moment Validuss spent his time honing his skills and forms and watched as he discovered the meaning of what Cenarius had told him. He explored the land and observer the barbaric Horde and the atrocities they committed. During these years a fire began to burn in Validuss’s Heart. The Horde were fuelling this rage with each innocent victim was claimed by the Horde. From this fire was born a passion and a thirst for Justice. Validuss would become a force of Vengeance. At the end of his training his instincts were his driving force but not for survival but for…..Annihilation.
