Born with fiery red hair and yellow eyes, obvisous signs of of being an Asimar, Quasdar’s parents left him at a church of Saranrae . Born and raised in the church within the Empire of Kelesh in the Casamaron continent. Quasdar spent 58 years within his church learning the way of the sword, a scimitar as Saranrae would use, shieldwork, studying different paths of knowledge and healing.
However one night in his studies of history of Taldor, a far off land across the sea, a blinding light, like the Sun, paralyzes him and before him Saranrae appeared. Knowing the history of Taldor banning the worship of Saranrae because of the misguided Cult of the Dawnflower. Once Osirion was brought under the control of Keleshite satraps in the name of the Emperor, it was public policy to encourage the worship of Sarenrae as a means of bringing Osirion closer to the Empire. As a result, the cult established itself in Osirion as well. The Cult’s growing popularity alarmed successive satraps, and in 2217 AR, the cult’s leaders were exiled to the deserts of Thuvia.
A section of the Cult, led by a priestess called Vedie, chose instead to flee south into what would become Katapesh. This section split into two groups. One group founded a settlement called Sarenrae’s Bastion and the other founded the Golden City.
In 2253 AR the satrap was found dead in one of his fountains, with sunflowers in his mouth. The Cult returned from exile in Thuvia, and the new ruler of Osirion was an independent Keleshite sultan rather than a satrap ruling in the name of the emperor.
Centuries later, when Khemet I ousted the last sultan and restored the rule of Osirian pharaohs, the Cult of the Dawnflower and the Church of Sarenrae in general were instrumental in his rise to power. In fact, they had entered into a secret alliance with Khemet a year before his official proclamation of rulership.
Elsewhere, Qadira invaded Taldor in 4079 AR, resulting in five hundred years of conflict between the two nations. Taldor’s Grand Prince Stavian I came to believe that Qadira’s invasion had been assisted by members of the Cult of the Dawnflower. As a result he outlawed the worship of Sarenrae in 4528 AR.
Saranrae tasked Quasdar with a task, to go out and heal those in this far off land of Taldor to hopefully once again change the Taldoran government’s views of the worship and temples of Saranrae, one healing at a time if need be. To help Quasdar on this task she granted him her favor with gift of her divine magic. Shortly after Quasdar snapped out of his daze, his eyes refocusing, thinking he was hallucinating from studying so late, he could feel a warmth of power within him that the never felt before. Deciding to to take this vision for what it was and realizing he was tasked by Saranrae herself, he went to bed with thoughts of how his life is to unfold in this journey to a new land. The next few years Quasdar gathers materials, himself and sets out to sea on his way to Taldor…
