Zleiphneir: Path of Justice
Zleiphneir was always fond of the lonely tree at the Path of Loneliness. He often spent a great deal of time just resting near the tree, enjoying its company. He eventually built up a reputation for doing so, and obtained several friends and enemies based on affinity for the tree. But, at this point, he was mostly only known by his friends that he often spoke with.
As Zleiphneir, or Z as his friends called him, generally lounged about the area, his friends often came to him there, rather than he go to them. Just like any other ordinary day, Z was lying about in the area, when one of his friends, Ilias, came to greet him.
At this time, Ilias was still quite young to the realm and very impressionable. He liked talking with Z, and enjoyed making many other friends as well. Thus, he cannot be blamed for thinking his newfound companion was not as upstanding as he may have seemed at first. This man, called a Mad Tiger by some, saw how Zleiphneir took fondly to the tree, and decided to torment him. The Mad Tiger provoked Z by punching the tree with all of his might.
