Grand Conspiracy

Third Age 5655: Kevor is born.

Peril's Gate

Third Age 5670: Cerebeld sends Kevor on a routine patrol to Karfael. Though warned of Khadrim attacks, he claim's his heir's right to ride at the fore of the patrol instead of returning to safety in West End, although his bodyguards make him understand that he cannot accompany the field troops into battle. Near Karfael, Kevor is accosted by a hedge witch and accepts a good luck charm from her. This is a test of character put into motion by Sethvir and Asandir. Later, Kevor loses a bet with Fennick over the actions of their duty officer. Kevor is troubled by the bent of Alliance policy and the persecution of mage talent. He challenges Ranne over discrepancies but fails to evoke a meaningful response.

When a Khadrim attacks a steading, Kevor attempts to save a small child but is immolated by Khadrim fire. After the attack, the patrol can find no remaining trace of him and presumes that he has died. He ends up at a hostel of Ath's Adepts near Northstrait, badly burned and lost to physical pain until mention of his mother draws him back. After accepting that he tried to provoke his own death, he is given the opportunity to heal himself in the Sacred Grove, although Ath's Adepts warn him that he will not be the same afterwards.

In late winter, Ath's Adepts discover that Kevor's body has started to regenerate. In early spring, he awakens and is given the choice to join Ath's Adepts. He becomes the first new adept in a hundred years.
