Reimagined Origin

Gary Preston always wondered if it was fate that brought him to the Flameborne Discipline. He was born to a father working as a missionary in China. It was shortly after that a once in a century flood tore through the region, devastating everything in its path, including Gary’s family. In a final act of love and faith, his father placed his infant son in a basket and entrusted him to the mercy of the water.

The powerful current carried Gary’s basket to the shores of a hidden monastery. The monks who resided there were astonished to discover the infant and believed him to be the reincarnation of their revered leader. They embraced Gary, raising him in their customs and imparting their ancient wisdom.

The monks were also the guardians of a mystical art called the Flameborne Discipline. This extraordinary power granted them the ability to harness and control fire and heat. As Gary grew, it became apparent that he possessed an innate aptitude for this arcane tradition. He effortlessly summoned and manipulated fire, rapidly ascending to mastery of the art.

Time passed, and Gary evolved into a formidable and venerated member of the monastery. Yet he couldn’t shake the feeling that he was unlike his brethren. A connection to the world beyond the monastery walls tugged at his heart, and he knew that one day he would have to leave his sanctuary and return to his birthplace.

When the moment arrived, Gary bade a heartfelt farewell to his adoptive family and embarked on his destiny. He was ready to explore the world and utilize the Flameborne Discipline to protect and serve those in need, embracing his destiny as a powerful force for good.
