Jonrath was once a great general for Netheryll. Jonrath never lost a battle in his entire life, and diligently worked to expand the empire. When Jonrath announced his plans to retire to a quiet life at age 60, the Council of Mages was not pleased. They believed Jonraths strategic genius was still valuable to the empire.
Jonrath became seriously ill within a month of retiring. The Council of Mages worked ‘hard’ to save his body, but were unable to do so. They were able to save Jonraths mind by binding it to his weapon, which already contained much of his soul.
Jonrath was placed in control of one of Netherylls primary bases, from which he could defend the empire from threats for all eternity.
After the fall of Netheryll, Jonrath began to slowly loose his mind due to boredom, as he was unable to influence anything or communicate with anyone. He created fantasy worlds for himself in his own mind and sometimes has trouble telling who is real and who isn’t.
Jonrath was of an order of Kensai capable of imbueing their weapons with magical capabilities using only their own energies. Jonraths power comes from the oath he swore to protect and expand Netheryll.
