The Obsidian Spire
The archangel that served the demi-goddess Sola during the War of Darkness.
Raziel was loyal to the goddess Solara during the Entropy War. The archangel also served the goddess’ mortal incarnation, the demigod named Sola during the War of Darkness. The angel was there when Sola sacrificed herself to trap Necreus within the Obsidian Spire and was given the Vile Reliquary to destroy. The angel raced away from the Obsidian Spire and was followed by one of Necreus’ Lords of Malice, the vampire Satheras. The two did battle in the Southland and Raziel manged to incapacitate the vampire, but at a great cost to itself. The angel and vampire were found by a mortal Solaran priest, who vowed to the dying angel to keep the Vile Reliquary hidden. A temple was built atop the ground where these two powerful beings met their end. Now, only an echo of Raziel remains within the tomb and it was this that the heroes of the Keep on the Borderlands met. Raziel told the heroes that they were the “Eternal Champions of Sola” and must keep the Vile Reliquary from Necreus at all costs, or the Dark Lord would again be free of the Obsidian Spire.
