A god like figure among those who go to the Kaldin Academy, and a legend to those who don’t. Much of the man is a mystery as he has not been seen by anyone sense shortly after the academy was first founded nearly 500 years ago. As best as the legends go he was a humble merchant who one day found himself trading with a small crippled old man. The old man was blind and starving on the side of the road. The old man asked if Therin had any food to spare. Therin being the shrewd man he was offered the old man a trade. The old man had only one thing to his name a twisted mechanical walking stick. Therin on the otherhand noticed the stick was much more than just a twisted piece of metal the old man had happened upon in his travels. With that trade Therin’s life forever changed. The walking stick was indeed magical and with it Therin soon amassed a massive collection of magical artifacts. Wizards from all over the land were drawn to him in hopes of studying these artifacts. He formed the academy to study magical artifacts and within the next few years he was seen less and less. Untill one day when he never left his tower chambers in the center of the academy grounds again. Months later the towers doors and windows just disapeared, leaving nothing but solid wall encasing Therin’s chambers within. Some say Therin was able to cheat time and death itself and still lives. Some think he died long ago like any other man. Some claim he is a god sent to this world to bring us into a new age, others believe Therin had drank from the soul of this world itself to sustain his life to this very day.
