Character: Luxuria, Black n' Purple - Or ... What Not to do in Arah!
Luxuria tells us the story of her outfit, or what not to do in Arah while looking for treasure.

Something incredible has been brewing in Halgrim ever since his seemingly endless hibernation. Fate came and swept him away from his home for an amazing adventure.

Character: Xavier Holmes, The Legend of the North
Xavier tells us his epic story from within the stomach of a dragon. Hold on for dear life, this story is quite the ride.
"As he was falling, Xavier recited the tomes of protection that he had once come
across in an ancient Dwarven cavern. It was a fairly simple spell, but hopefully it would keep him alive long enough."
Character: Varnn, The White Charr

This is an epic tale of her search for the Mask of Jatoro and how it leads her to an epic fight with a dragon.

Chartacter: Asella, Witch of the Mansion
This is another interesting twist on background stories. She tells us the stories children tell of her!
Better watch out, she might put you under her spell.
"The myth is that she wears the mask to hide her face, and that one look at her face, can have any man under her control. Once you're under her control, there's no hope."
Character: Sold, How do you sell a contradiction?
This is a story of someone who didn't fit in and how she was able to find a place in the world. How she got there is the fun part!
"The odd pair danced their way around the world. Though their squawking seemed to scare off potential friends, they had each other, and that was all they needed."
Character: Meswrex, If you've got it, flaunt it!
She's always wanted to be a Mesmer, yet her parents didn't approve. Guess which she chose to stick with!
"Just look at yourself will you! Parading around half-naked, flashing your assets in puffs of purple butterflies! Is this the Norn way?"
Character: Morgana, The Wicked 'n Corrupted Norn Warrior
Morgana tells her story of proving her worth on the battlefield, when everyone belittled her abilites because of her stunning beauty.
"She was given this sword as a token of great friendship and its a reminder to her everyday, that you are not defeated because you are down and broken, you are only defeated when you give up!"
