Ancient record indicates that after an event known as the Silent Passing, the patron of parted souls, Neher, forsook his honor and turned upon Yllith and creation, defiling the veil between the living and the dead. He created an army that was terrible to behold and whose soldiers could not be slain. Korhren and the Guardian Shilldraxtra buried Neher’s army in a sea of ice and hunted Neher down. Finally, he was captured by the two companions. In this time, Korhren and Shilldraxtra had fallen in love. Yllith then gave unto Korhren the charge that was forsaken by Neher: to guide the souls of the departed to their next estate and to watch over them. With the Binding of the Fallen, the Guardians were set in the heavens. It is rumored that Shilldraxtra sleeps upon the moon Éstel and it is for this cause that the tides rise and fall. For Korhren rides the waves of the ocean following Shilldraxtra’s resting place across the sky because he misses her more than mortals can comprehend; and the tide follows him.
