Journal Entry: Dantena van Torquaz


All systems of morality are fine. The gospel alone has exhibited a complete assemblage of the principles of morality, divested of all absurdity. It is not composed, like your creed, of a few common-place sentences put into bad verse. Do you wish to see that which is really sublime? Repeat the Lord’s Prayer.

Dantena van Torquaz is a field officer of His Imperial Majesty’s Night Watch.

Once a dashing swordsman of the calibre that rises once in a generation, Dantena van Torquaz was also a member of the Westernlands’ nobility and one of the Empire’s most prized bachelors, both handsome and talented.

Following a series of wars in the West, the young Torquaz was disgraced and flayed in unknown circumstances, surviving the ashpits, a notorious dungeon, alongside thuggish soldier Sebastian Melogre.

Pardoned after the war, Torquaz swore revenge on an unnamed man and relocated at the Imperial Capital City following Sebastian Melogre as member of the Night’s Watch. Since he has brought his younger sister Sixtina with him, Dantena considers her his most precious treasure.

Vile and cynical, he worked professionally under sadistic Melogre for over a decade, breaking political schemes, religious apostates and ambitious nobles.

Currently tasked with finding the whereabouts of a mysterious serial killer by the Iron Circle itself, Torquaz is on his way, exploring the secrets of the glorious and all-mighty Empire.
