Getting to know 5th Edition
Baun the Pure
A legendary paladin of Mesmessir, she is renowned for her devotion as well as her skill at arms, turning the tide of many battles during the God War. When the priests of Soris and the Dwarfven smiths finished Godbane, they selected her to wield it in battle against Echidna. Though she did manage to slay the dark goddess, the resulting tempest it unleashed devastated both armies and Baun was killed in the chaos.
Though the following events of the God War is considered a tragedy by all, Baun's part is glorified in song and lore as the greatest blow struck against the savage races. The Sentinels consider her their founder, though there is no evidence to that.
