The Twin Blades
The twin brother and sister whose long list of foul deeds have
earned them this infamous moniker (The Twin Blades) are
two characters best avoided.
Zarythor (brother) and Thalynor (sister) began their storied careers as outlaws
early in life, when upon the death of their father (a ruthless
brigand known to most as 'Silverfang') they assumed control of
what remained of his band of highwaymen.
Under the control of the twins, who displayed not only their father's
cruel nature, but also his fearsome skill with all manner of weaponry,
the small band of highwaymen quickly grew into a small army of
robbers and raiders that mercilessly pillaged outlying settlements
across the entire breadth of southern Tysa.
At last, when the rewards put on their heads by the
Crown became more than even the most
ardent of brigands could hope to resist, the twins were betrayed by a handful
of their own, and captured by border rangers in an ambush near the city of Tryndmoor.
The twins escaped from their ranger captors three days later, on the journey
to Talinus, where they were to stand accused of the long and gruesome litany
of their crimes. They were captured twice again in the decade that followed,
and managed to escape twice more.
After their last escape, which left three border rangers and five soldiers
dead on a quiet road south of Trithik, Zarythor and Thalynor disappeared.
Most believed that they had fled the North Broadlands entirely, though a good number felt that they were simply hiding out, in some remote
nook in the wilds of Tysa, patiently awaiting the day that they would seek their
revenge on their betrayers -- and their kin.
