The Land of Abor-Toril
The Warden or Ghesh is a Dragonborn from ancient times. After many great battles the ancient Dragonborn civilization created prisons to house the most powerful creatures they could not destroy. The Shadow Stockades was one such prison meant to test the abilities of the prophesied Shields of Airis. These were said to be individuals pure of heart meant to stop the worlds destruction.
Ghesh was frozen in a pod created by a Modron Unit. The heroes awoke Ghesh where he slew a Manticore shortly after and began bonding with the adventurers. After their escape from the prison however Ghesh suddenly found himself without purpose for the first time in his life. He pledged himself to protecting Airis, but as the need arose Airis had Ghesh leave to explore the unknown land of Abor-Toril.
