Lord Antidas is the current and most likely the last Lord of House Daratan. It was prophesied that he would be the leader to restore Daratan to its original glory, and unwavering in his faith in the prophecy, Antidas undertook many daring attacks against Daratan's enemies. Unfortunately for both Antidas and his House, the prophecy failed to live up to its end of the bargain with disastrous consequences for House Daratan. With the loss of a fort and two entire legions, Antidas' domain was reduced to a crumbling town and a small regiment of guards, while the prospects of glory slowly faded away.
Prophecy[edit | edit source]
Antidas' father had requested a reading when Antidas was born. His star-gazer had foretold that Antidas would be the one to bring glory to House Daratan and make it rise again. Man lived under the shadow of the prophecy all his life. He tried to follow the path set by his ancestors, but his time hadn't come yet and fate punished him for his arrogance. Feng told him that he needed powerful artefacts to secure a victory.

"Our House was born during the battle of Dar Attan, where Legatus Legionis Tiberius Catulus, our great ancestor, has shown the world the true meaning of courage."
"With less than a full legion, Catulus faced twenty thousand men and stood his ground. He could have retreated and waited for reinforcements, but cowards never accomplish anything. Catulus saw an opportunity and he took it. After the battle, the Emperor himself named Catulus the Dux per Dar Attan, calling him dux bellorum - the dux of battles - the highest honour for a warrior."
"Only a few hundred men survived the battle. Instead of disbanding them, the Emperor ordered them to rebuild the legion and gave it the name Darattan to commerate the battle and my ancestor's bravery".
