Malchor the Sculptor

And again, Dwayna, and again, and again, until I have captured your beauty, you. You will be mine! You will be MINE!


According to an old legend,[1][2] Malchor was a great Orrian artist who was commissioned to carve statues of the Human Gods. After he was done carving their statues, the gods shut themselves away from mankind in Arah. Malchor had fallen in love with Dwayna and, despite being blinded by the gods' radiance, he was still able to finish her statue last as he had memorized her before losing his sight. Malchor could not stand thinking he would never see his beloved goddess again, so he threw himself into the ocean and drowned after Dwayna's departure. The site of his death became known as Malchor's Leap, and each year until the Cataclysm, Orrian maidens would wreath the rocks with flowers in memory of the famous sculptor and his loss. Sailors used to say that the steeples along the Orrian Veil were Malchor's hands reaching out of the sea toward the heavens, trying to touch the gods that left him behind so long ago.
