Once a highly ranked paladin of the Knights of St. Celeste, he betrayed his order because he felt they were responsible for his wife to be’s death. Reincarnated as a powerful warrior of undeath, he led a great army of all races against Istlun in the Time of Tears . Upon the war being over, he led his own army into the domain of St. Celeste to slay her personally. During a final battle with her, Velios and St. Celeste were both mortally wounded and fell into Istlun. Rumors are whispered that Velios did not actually die when he hit the earth, but rather was scattered into incorporeal form and entombed where he landed, until freed by a group of adventurers in exchange for helping them battle the Knights of St. Celeste. These rumors have not been confirmed, and may never be confirmed as noone has been able to pinpoint where his body fell in Istlun.
