Sarnath Vonn is a weapon.
Fire Manipulation (Limited) - Like most dragons, Sarnath Vonn possesses the ability to breathe fire. As he has never bothered to train this ability, however, his fire manipulation is limited to fire-breath in both of his forms.
Dragon Physiology - Among dragons, Sarnath was merely average at his peak and is a weakling in his current form. Against the average human, however, Sarnath is every bit the dragon the stories speak of him as. Sarnath has far greater strength, speed, and durability than any normal human, and can fly via his wings. Sarnath has absolutely no formal training whatsoever, and relies solely on being the biggest and strongest individual within the vicinity to fight.
Immortality - As long as the Dragonstone within his chest is intact, Sarnath cannot age and is immune to hunger, thirst, and disease. If Sarnath's body is destroyed save for his Dragonstone, the artifact begins the laborious process of regenerating his body over the course of several decades.
However, this immortality comes at a price. A "newborn" Sarnath is significantly weakened, needing to absorb energies from other creatures. Additionally, the Dragonstone is completely helpless while regenerating, and although hard to break using purely physical means is especially vulnerable to sillage-based attacks.
Regeneration - The Dragonstone allows Sarnath to absorb significant amounts of natural energy from the environment. This allows him to recuperate from all but the most grievous wounds within minutes or even seconds.
Lost limbs can be regenerated over the course of months or years, while regeneration of the entire body from his Dragonstone is detailed above under Immortality.
Shapeshifting - Sarnath can shift between his young boy and dragon forms at will, and can even partially shapeshift.
Absorption – Although Sarnath has no need to eat to sustain himself, he can still consume organic matter to speed up his regeneration significantly or increase his own personal power. The closer to live the prey, the more energy supplied.
Shapeshifter’s Ring – a ring made specifically for shapeshifters such as Sarnath. Worn on the ring finger, it creates a shadowy substance that can imitate the appearance and texture of cloth and leather. It shifts size with its user’s body, and allows the user to shapeshift freely without fear of needing clothes.
Sarnath Vonn, or “Simon of Saran” (as he calls his human form), appears as a sweet, polite young boy on the cusp of manhood. He always minds his Ps and Qs around others, and treats everyone equally. Although he does admittedly get nervous around the Crux Fidelis, he chalks it up to the power they have – it scares him how any human can be that strong.
It’s all an act dropped at even the slightest provocation.
Simon is a thug and a bully at heart, delighting in causing agony and hurting others weaker than him. He has only three priorities; him, himself, and himself. Besides his arrogance and self-centeredness, Simon is a gross, crude individual that takes pleasure in shocking others.
There’s nothing Simon hates more than the Crux Fidelis. To him, the Crux Fidelis is responsible for the loss of everything he’s had in his entire life - and it’s not like this belief is unwarranted. He keeps this hatred of his veiled under deep layers, because of the organization’s status as the ruling power in the land.
On the positive side, Simon is genuinely curious about the world around him, taking immense joy in learning new things. And despite the apparent hopelessness of it, his determination to undermine the Crux Fidelis is unwavering.
Sarnath’s story begins during the first days of sillage, when he was but a newborn. A few days after his birth, he found himself adopted by Thassilus Vonn, the then-young wizard-count of Saran.
Thassilus Vonn raised Sarnath with tenderness and care, as any sane person would do when raising a fire-breathing monstrosity. He even bestowed upon Sarnath his current name, named after both himself and the land he ruled over.
Sarnath’s first raid was a night he would never forget. The power went to his head, and he soon relished in his role as his father’s most brutal enforcer. Thassilus ruled Saran with an iron fist then, sending Sarnath to squelch any who resisted.
One day, the aged Thassilus revealed to Sarnath his ultimate project. He would conduct a magical ritual that would bestow upon them the gift of eternal life.
Unfortunately, the energies Thassilus conducted proved too much to handle for a human. Instead of giving him eternal life, the ritual overloaded the old man’s body, and he was soon left a charred corpse. As for Sarnath…
…Remember when I said too much to handle for a human?
The ritual froze Sarnath’s heart into crystal, as it was intended to. From then on, Sarnath would not need food or drink, and would never age past the point he was at. As a display of gratitude for saving him, raising him as his own his entire life, and giving him immortality, Sarnath ate Thassilus’s corpse to capture the energy within.
For many long years, Sarnath ruled as the sole power in Saran. Saran soon fell to banditry and lawlessness as even its new count ravaged the fields. Whatever token resistance the hedge mages of the county put up was met with the full force of Sarnath’s fury.
Then one day, a small group of members from the “Crux Fidelis” appeared. Wielding strange weapons, they dared to openly challenge his rule. And in front of his own castle, no less! Sarnath responded to this challenge with the same fire – only to be taken aback when they did not die.
The dragon soon found himself overwhelmed by the Crux Fidelis’s forces. Eventually, after a drawn-out battle, they slew him. Before they could hang his corpse out, the castle started to collapse, trapping Sarnath’s carcass within…
Sarnath awoke a few hours after the battle to find that he could not move or sleep. He had been reduced to the frozen heart – the Dragonstone – that was the instrument of his immortality.
Many years passed, and the slaying of the Saran Worm passed into legend…
The castle turned into ruins, and the ruins turned to dust. All that remained of the Crux Fidelis’s brave deeds were plaques and legends.
Deep underground, the Dragonstone began its work regenerating Sarnath’s body. As he began to grow, he began to dig a tunnel, gobbling up underground creatures and roots to replenish more of his power. Finally, in the year 1040, Sarnath had completely regenerated.
Imagine his shock when he learned that the Crux Fidelis had taken over the world! His most hated enemies, the organization that had caused him his first death, had grown to such a size that they had taken over Sium. This drove Sarnath quite insane with vengeful lust, but even then he knew that he could not stand against them…not yet, that was.
So he shifted into a young man – a skill he’d until then never used – and started learning all he could about the new world. Sarnath spent the next forty years wandering the earth, learning what he could, and then moving on. All the while, his hatred of the Crux Fidelis grew.
Eventually, Sarnath came to the conclusion that the only way he could ever hope to defeat the Crux Fidelis was if he learned how to somehow use sillage for himself. To this end, Sarnath seeks a multitude of artifacts and rituals to endow him with the power he so craves.
Times are changing. As things heat up, Sarnath contemplates making his next move…
