During the Trial of Ascension, not many Sealbearers dared to wield the Staff of Ascension, but two contenders rose to dominate the event: Xiel Peulus of the Spiritsingers who bore the Seal of Nature, and Veyrzhul La’Saet of the Celestines who bore the Seal of Harmony. Buttressed by their allies, the two Sealbearers fought each other throughout the astral plane as well as the insanity of Kethuru and the hideous abominations made manifest by his will. Finally, Xiel mastered the Staff of Ascension and reformed the Nine Seals. In doing so, he ascended and is now know as Lord Viynain of the Realm of Nature. Congratulations, Lord Viynain!
