Think of me every time you plunge your weapon into the guts of a Mordant Crescent, eh?

— First Spear Kitur

First Spear Kitur is a member of the Order of the Sunspears who has become slightly unhinged after being imprisoned and tortured by the Mordant Crescent. He used to be the mentor of Spearmarshal Zaeim.

Biography[edit]

After joining the Sunspears, Kitur served them loyally over the years and eventually rose to the rank of First Spear. He eventually took in an apprentice from Istan, Zaeim, and trained him to become a Sunspear. When Balthazar's Forged army invaded Elona and Palawa Joko's regime imposed stricter laws everywhere in 1330 AE, Zaeim learned of Istan's plight and returned home to aid his people despite Kitur's protests.[1]

Kitur continued to fight and organized a refugee escort through the Desolation with Second Spear Nayrim waiting on the other end. However, the escort was ambushed by the Mordant Crescent, and Kitur fought the ambushers as a distraction, allowing the refugees to flee to safety while being captured himself. He was stripped of his weapons and armor and tossed into the Warehouse in the Vehtendi Academy where he was questioned and tortured by the Mordant Crescent who wished to learn the whereabouts of other surviving Sunspears. The mental and physical torture did not break Kitur, however, although his treatment and lengthy imprisonment did seem to affect his sanity somewhat as he believed his blade Rashee was speaking to him.[2]

After some time had passed, the invasion of the Branded caused enough chaos around the academy that allowed Kitur to think of a way to escape. He was helped by the Pact Commander and other adventurers who happened to be in the region and escorted him out of the academy while helping him gather his armor pieces and trusty blade. Following the successful escape, he parted ways with the adventurers while wishing them good fortune. Before leaving the area, however, he learned that the Commander had reeducated the Vehtendi cadets about real history of the world instead of Joko's altered version of it and believed the Commander's actions may have planted the seeds of a new generation of Sunspears to oppose Joko's regime.

Following Balthazar's death at the Commander's hands in the Battle of Kodash Bazaar, Kitur and other Sunspears were drawn to Yahnur Plateau by strange but inspiring visions. They found their way to the Sunspear Sanctuary and met with the conscious Remains of the Last Spearmarshal who revealed that she had summoned them all there to help reunite the scattered order and inspire the people of Elona. The Commander aided the Sunspears and the Spearmarshal's griffons and helped them defend the sanctuary from a Mordant Crescent scouting squad which tried to kill all the Sunspears present after discovering the hideout.

Once the Mordant Crescent had been defeated, the Sunspears finally had a base of operations in Vabbi safe from prying eyes of Joko's agents. Their next task would be to learn to trust the griffons and how to fly with them, giving the Sunspears an edge against landbound Awakened forces. Kitur conversed with the Commander, explaining what he had been up to and informing the Commander of the great work done at Vehtendi Academy.

Dialogue[edit]

At Vehtendi Academy
I've been trapped down here for...I'm not even sure—keeping track of the time wasn't helping my mental state. What say you help me out?
Talk ready option.png
Stay back. I'll break down the door.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you aware of the Sunspear sanctuary to the east? [verification requested]
I was looking into the rumors before Kralkatorrik arrived. Is it actually there?
Talk more option tango.png
It's not much, but it's there. In the mountains across the Brand.
If I can manage to get out of this little, uh, situation, I'll be sure to head that way. Speaking of which...

Stay back. I'll break down the door.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll look for a way.
Talk end option tango.png
Sorry, I have to go.

At Yahnur Plateau
Ahai, friend! It's a fine thing to see you again!
Talk more option tango.png
Managed to find your way here, I see.
Short trip, really. Only a small army of Branded to knock on the head along the way.
Talk more option tango.png
Still recovering from the imprisonment?
The Mordant Crescent questioners are dedicated to their craft. Not particularly creative, but persistent. Especially when it comes to the whereabouts of the Sunspears.
Talk more option tango.png
But you didn't break.
The weaker Sunspears were broken ages ago. The Mordant Crescent aren't imaginative enough to dream up a way to break me. And the scars will look handsome, I think.
Talk more option tango.png
No worse for wear then?
No, no. Bruises heal, friend! And now I've had the pleasure of making your acquaintance—well worth the torture and imprisonment, especially now that I'm hearing of your exploits at the academy.
Talk more option tango.png
How's that?
Quite a reeducation plan you executed over there with the cadets. Rashee thinks you may have planted the seeds of a new generation of Sunspears. Might be crazy talk, but I think I agree.

How can I enlighten you, friend?

I see you've reunited with Nayrim. (Same as below.)

I see you've reunited with Nayrim.
Ah, yes. I suspect her sword would spin a fine tale. She's been through a great deal.
Talk more option tango.png
What's the story between you two?
Little and much. We were master and student, now equals. She's put up with me nearly ten years now.
Talk more option tango.png
What happened on your last mission?
When Kralkatorrik arrived, I lead a group of refugees through the Desolation. Nayrim took them north while I went to cut the legs off our pursuers. Those who could still walk threw me in that prison.
Talk more option tango.png
What's next for you two?
You ask a fine question. Joko's regime was unassailable, but things are changing—for the first time in a very long time, my optimism for Vabbi's future may actually be warranted.

What are your thoughts on this place?
Talking to saddled birds while the voice of a long-dead legend rattles around in my head... It's unusual for most people, I suppose.
Talk more option tango.png
Legend? You mean the spearmarshal?
Of course! She was one of the heroes of Nightfall, there during the defeat of Abaddon and the ascension of Kormir. As voices in your head go, she's an important one.
Talk more option tango.png
So you'll continue working with her?
Without question. With a wise voice and the strength of the griffons behind us, we stand a real chance of restoring the Sunspear order and saving Elona.
