The contradiction at the heart of the clergy of Rhannior is a coexistent hatred of mages and the arcane and a reverence of knowledge. It is such that within the vast libraries of their islands sit bunker-like sealed sections, with age old books gathering dust behind cold iron bars. Within is cordoned any knowledge that is deemed hurtful to the mind or soul, primarily dealing with the arcane and mystical. Certain students at the academic colleges of the isles are selected for apparent strength of will to be the guardians of these ancient tomes and artefacts. No mere librarians these scholars are required to study the forbidden texts and be able to answer any questions on the topics contained should the need arise, to allow lesser minds to forgo the temptation within their pages. Riordan was one such guardian, taught to wield a sword and locked in a forbidden library for days on end he read much about the ancient days before man and the terrors of misusing magical energy. Often mage-hunters or confessors would come to him on advice on forbidden topics and he would answer their questions diligently, having remembered every word he read.

After a brief dalliance in his youth with travel throughout Mestria, Riordan settled down to his studies and the position he had been chosen for, throwing himself into it with zeal and enthusiasm. He had a spotless record and was noted by many to have an unusually good knowledge of forbidden texts. It is odd then that 6 months after being discharged from his post he should happen upon the Brightslayers, gathering speed on their quest to summon a foul daemon into the mortal realm. He would join their quest for reasons unknown to any but himself but with a goal undoubtedly to preserve and properly catalogue any knowledge he came across on his adventures.
