Gonsalvo DeZilva comes from the lands of Further Navarre, located along the Western Coasts. Further Navarre was once a powerful Merchant Kingdom until it fell into decline and became the westernmost province of Imperial Accadios.
After the death of his mother, young Gonsalvo was sent to the Cathedral in Cadorés by his father, the Hildago of a lonely village in the foothills of the coastal Manzanares mountain range. The Priests trained Gonsalvo to be a Holy Warrior and hoped that he might lead his village and assume the role of Hildago one day. But when Gonsalvo finally returned home he found the family estate desolate and abandoned, and the vineyards untended and dead. In the sleepy nearby fishing village Gonsalvo learned that his father, the old Hildago, had gone off and disappeared into the ocean wastes, lured away by demonic sirens and their songs of treasure, adventure and lust in lands beyond the sea. Gonsalvo returned to Cadorés and joined the Order of Light, dedicating himself to vanquish the evil that has poisoned the western kingdoms.
Journeying east from Accadios, he has arrived at a lonely keep that borders the Great Eastern Wastes, following whispers of a powerful and ancient evil that sleeps beneath the sands of the Ruined Kingdoms.
