Xok's Knights (KUF: A War of Heroes)Edit
In the history of Bersia, no one has been more influential or more infamous than the man now known as Regnier. Once the noble Rick Miner, he was slaughtered during the First War of Heroes by the Lich Khilliani. He was resurrected by the archmage Moonlight by the power of the Ancient Heart, he resurfaced as Rick Blood, commander of the Dark Legion, in the Second War of Heroes. Rick Blood was originally one of the seven Xok's Knights in the first War of Heroes. His resurrection through the Ancient Heart gave him the power of immortality and Rick Blood took revenge on Khilliani by slaying him, thus ending the war. He is also responsible for killing Celine, the protector of the Ancient Heart.
When Nible was awakened Rick Blood disappeared, along with the rest of Xok's knights. 50 years would soon pass and the story's of the legendary heroes would go on to become legend.
However, Rick Blood was not finished. He remerged decades later, but assumed the name Regnier. He managed to subdue the native Orc's of Hexter (gaining Urukabarr and Leinhart as allies in the process). He forged an alliance with King Valdemar of Vellond, giving him the impression that he is one of his loyal subjects. Shortly after the Crusades/Encablossan war began, he actively participated in an attempt to regain control of Nibel's Ancient Heart, and his free will.
The Crusades/Encablossan War (KUF: The Crusaders)Edit
During the war, he made numerous victories and killed several important men, such as General Hugh of Hironeiden, and Gerald's friend Rupert. He also claimed victory at key areas such as the Glaucus River, Bronzewood, and Raven Meadow.
After the Dark Legions successful capture of Esse, he came close to acheiving his goal of claiming the Heart while he was pursuing the Pope Dimitri (The Patriarch in the North America version) of Ecclesia, who was in possession of it. However, the Pope used the power of the Heart to force Regnier into making his troops halt, allowing him safe passage back into Ecclesia. It turns out that whoever has posession of the Ancient Heart can control it's immortal avatar, aka Regnier. Later on, the Ancient Heart was destroyed during the battle at Norwart between an Hironeidonian/Ecclesian Alliance vesrsus the Vellond/Hexter Alliance. Since Nibel's Ancient Heart was destroyed, numerous things happened.
The first thing it did was force Nibel into a coma, thus ending the Age of Light. Directly as a result it awoke Encablossa, starting the Age of Darkness. Regnier gradually started losing his immortality from here on out. Encablossa began to consume Human and Orc troops and forced them back out as Enca Troops and Enca Spitters (Dark Elves did not seem to be affected by Encablossa's mutations). With the mighty Encablossa troops on his tail, and the ever expanding curtain of darkness which followed, Regnier was forced to head for Kallishire, an abandoned castle.
Along the way, he found out that Jungsburg was destroyed and that Gerald was under siege at Cloud Borune. Realizing he needed Gerald's help to get assistance from Ecclesia, he rescued him and the two retreated to Kallishire.
Once there, they formulated a plan to destroy Encablossa. To set the plan in motion, Regnier needed to resurrect the legendary Bone Dragon. Heading into Gremium, the Tomb of Dragon's, Regnier successfully found the 10 Dragon Tomb's, resurrected the Bone Dragon, and prepared to march to Funero (where Encablossa resides).
At Funero, the combined forces of Hironeiden, Ecclesia, and Hexter formed one large army. The Bone Dragon penetrated Encablossa's outer skin with it's Fire Ball attack, where as promptly Duane, Kendal, Regnier, Urukubarr, and Leinhart were teleported onto a Battaloon going inside of Encablossa.
Once inside they systematically targeted Encablossa's vital organs, including its Ancient Heart. It destroyed all of Encablossa troops and caused Encablossa to crumble into dust. However, Encablossa did not die, it merely forced it back inside its realm, along with Kendal, Duane, Regnier, and Leinhart.
Inside the Dark Dimension (KUF: Circle of Doom)Edit
Regnier awoke inside Encablossa's realm, and would eventually go on to discover the memories of his wife and daughter inside the dream world. Here he also encounters Encablossa, who has happened to take the form of a human inside of the Dark Dimension. Encablossa takes advantage of Regnier's loss of immortality and attempts to make him his ally. His plan is to make Regnier the ultimate warrior and for him to conquer the Age of Light. He will then let Regnier control Berisa while Encablossa controls the Dark Dimension. He orders Regnier to talk to the Idol of Death about the Blessing of the Absolute. The Idol explains that he will need the 3 splinters from the idols of Greed, Love, and Death. He will then transform them into perfect Greed, Love, and Death.
Regnier acquires the 3 splinters and gets them transformed. He then returns to Encablossa and asks for futher instructions. Encablossa wants to start the Blessing, which will ultimately destory any memories Regnier had of his wife and child. Regnier agrees to Encablossa's terms and has him begin the ritual. A firery ring surrounds his wife and daughter as he explains their history. He tells Encablossa that his daughter was born without a soul and that his wife tried to kill her as a result. Regnier stopped her and sent her to a sanatarium where he never heard from her again. Then Regnier went into battle and asked an old woman to take care his daughter. However, when he returned he found the village burnt to the ground and it contained no signs of his daughter. Regnier tracks down the old woman who was supposed to protect her and crushes her skull with his bare hands. The blessing is purification technique meant to rid a person of any memories that might pose a weakness. The firery circle envelopes the memories of his wife and daughter. His wife cries out and pleads with Regnier to forgive her and tells him that she will always love him no matter what, all the while his daughter sits there emotionless staring off into infinity.
Once the memories are destroyed Encablossa asks for Regnier to find the key to unlock the location of Moonlight's body. The key is held by Keither, one of the fellow Xok's knights, who is currently at the Clock Tower. Regnier defeats Keither and obtains the key. Encablossa then asks for Regnier to destroy the body of Moonlight and return to the Age of Light. Regnier destroys Moonlight's body and returns to Bersia as Leader of the Encablossian army seeking to destroy the Age of Light.
Regnier was called Rick Miner and was once a man and Knight. Before he went to war, he had a wife and had a daughter with her, however due to the fact that Rick was always fighting, she was born without a soul, the mom dies and Rick has to go to war and so he puts his daughter in a home where an old women would look after her. On his return he finds the old women burned down the home with his souless daughter in it, and so he hunts the women down and kills her. Rick then goes back to war.
Rick fought against the lich Killiani in the Holy ground when he was but a mortal, but he was soon killed. However the ancient heart brought him back to life and he became an immortal. With the help of the rest of Xok's knights, Regnier (Known as Rick Miner before death and Rick Blood when brought back from death) was able to stop Killiani from bringing Encablossa to the world. However Killiani did not give up and due to his arrogance, was destroyed by God(Nibel) as the book of Ecclesians states.
Regnier is a man of few words, and generally only speaks when necessary. He is confident and always states things like they are. His entry into Encablossa's tower (it's corporeal body) gave him a vast knowledge and undestanding of the world. While it looks like he is a big dumb brute, he is really (arguably) the most skilled commander in all of Bersia.
