The alliance of races had not completely destroyed their masters as they had thought and roughly a hundred unforgiven were left alive. These hundred were cornered, and were about to be the last of their ancient and powerful race. However, one mortem, who's name has been lost to the sands of time, decided to punish the race with more than mere death and he enacted a spell using the full power of his own life-force and cursed the unforgiven with a an unending life of torment. He also cursed them with an almost animal intelligence and with his last breath branded them the unforgiven.

The Unforgiven

I...am...Pain...and...SUFFERING!
—The Bleak, an Unforgiven

Summary::The unforgiven were once a powerful race that held massive power, more than the other races that lived on the nation of Vaerdin. They had a mighty empire built on the slavery of four races: the Humans, Rylfyre, Mortem and the savage Wolfine. These four races formed a rebellion, and together they successfully destroyed the slaver race that had held them captive for countless years.

The alliance of races had not completely destroyed their masters though, and roughly a hundred Unforgiven were left alive. These hundred were cornered, and were about to be the last of their ancient and powerful race. However, one Mortem, who's name has been lost through the ages, decided to punish the race with more than mere death and he enacted a spell using the full power of his life-force and cursed the Unforgiven with a an unending life of torment. He also cursed them with an almost animal intelligence and with his last breath branded them the unforgiven.

Three hundred thousand years later those same Unforgiven still roam the land and have been forgotten by every race in the nation of Vaerdin and although their power is still immense their mental instabilities cause them to be unable to band together.

The shape of their heads is nearly spherical in shape although some have horns and some even have hair.
