Delinara with her Soul Companion Voot

At the bottom of the Star Lake in the heart of Votesqueue you will find the Queens palace.  She is a cruel ruler not by action but inaction.  I was once one of her seers, entrusted with the responsibility of a Soul Companion, in my case it is Voot and we are bonded truly to one another.  I would participate in the secret rituals of the Queen and offer up my visions of the lands futures and as always she would ignore the prophecies of the Soul Bound.

It was now many years ago that I made a stand.  The Queen treated our rituals as pomp and ceremony instead of the serious magical rituals that they were.  As I read the final prophecy and the Queen once again pronounced that she would do nothing on the matters provided I spoke my mind to her.  Loudly and clearly before the gathered seers and the Queens personal guard I called her negligent and aloof.  I advised her that if she did not act this threat from beyond the shadow would come and engulf her world.

She had Voot and I exiled from the kingdom.  I had expected as much but what pained me is none of the other Soul Bound stood with me.  They turned their faces from my action and on demand of the Queen they performed the ritual that would open the exile chamber.  Her guards hurled Voot and I through with no ceremony or thought for our wellbeing.  It is thus that I came to the Grand Stair.

I have sought to learn the ways of the Stair and also the secretive powers that I knew of but was never  powerful enough to contain.  I have met others here that are keen to help me do this so that I may return to my world and depose the Queen if I have time.  I  think though that I am already too late.  I found the door once more and could sense no connection beyond it.  I have learned that it is a mistake to open a door that you do not know the connection of, even if you once walked through it yourself.

I will one day return.  This I vow.  I will return and depose an uncaring Queen from the throne or I will return and fight back what the Shadow delivered if the prophecies are true.  Join me and I will be indebted to you, stand in my way and you will feel my wrath.  Vortesqueue may no longer be what I call home but it is where my heart yearns for when I am lost.  I will free it at all costs.
