Aeryth Brightspear was once a champion warrior who traveled throughout the land looking to test her prowess against the fiercest of creatures in single-handed combat. Orcs, giants, and even a young dragon all fell beneath her shining spear, and her legend grew. It wasn’t until she faced Airos the hydra that she genuinely met her match. Some say she sacrificed herself to save the lives of others, while others believe she simply grew overconfident. Whatever the cause, Aeryth’s body was pierced by Airos’ fangs just as she drove her broken spear deep into its heart, killing it even as she fell dead herself.

Locals built a shrine above the battle site in honor of their fallen champion. Aeryth’s bones were interred in a tomb while the hydra was buried beneath the foundation. The people who Aeryth had saved came to pay their respects to the slain hero, some even choosing to be buried near the shrine. Over the decades, the visits lessened, and the shrine fell into disrepair, eventually being swallowed by the swamps that became increasingly dangerous to travel through. It has now become the home of a cannibal cult bent on desecrating the shrine and resurrecting the hydra as their god.
