The Forsworn are Kyrian Aspirants that failed to complete a rite of passage. These once-bright souls darken and become lost, wandering the plains of Bastion to lament. Containing the Forsworn is key, for if left unchecked, doubt can spread like a disease.
Acolyte Nikolon was a kyrian Aspirant who could not pass the cleansing rite, as his love for his partner was too strong. Unwilling to forget about the love of his life, he decides that he can find another way. His skin and wings darken, and he becomes one of the fallen. Erydia tells him that he must leave before he is seen by other kyrians.
