So, ladies and gentlemen and everything in-between: let me tell you a tale...
Through correspondence from his allies across the land, Brun learned of a challenge that would not only test his strength, but improve it. He set off for it, determined to complete any challenges presented to him in order to prove his prowess as a leader. His goal was to take out the king the only way he knew how - by force - and to avoid the many paths to corruption along the way.
Finishing his first quest, word of Brun's deeds sweept the land and as a result more influential denizens of Armello became eager to offer their aid to the Bear Clan. He gained a mysterious and fickle ally called The Stranger, the allegiance of a powerful Conjurer, he acquired better equipment, and completed many quests that took him all across Armello. Eventually, he earned the attention of other claimants to the throne. Thane of the Wolf Clan stood in Brun's way, but was unable to surmount the great bear's strength. This clash secured Brun a great deal of prestige, and, continuing to rid the land of evils, he maintained it. However, Thane did not take his loss well. He began to rampage across the southern half of Armello, desperate to gain some ground after his image was tarnished by Brun. Thane gained influence over a great deal of territory near the Bear Clan's homeland, but Brun continued his journey unfazed.
However, Brun's days of glory did not go uninterrupted forever. After leaving a settlement under attack to fend for itself for fear of the costs of attempting to save it, a monstrous, corrupted Bane caught him off guard in a karmic flurry of claws and feathers.
However, it was clear that the other claimants to the throne saw Brun as a major threat to their own daydreams of power. Barnaby of the Rabbit Clan tried to slow Brun's advance by opposing him directly, but though he had immense, legendary armor, Brun struck him down. Zosha of the Rat Clan used her skills in subterfuge to bribe one of Brun's closest allies. Even Thane, Brun's most dangerous foe, stood in his way. He wounded Brun, but did not hinder his march for the castle.
It was here that Brun had some second thoughts. The king had trusted him, and his health was waning; Brun was the clear choice for his successor. Brun, however, wasn't one to wait. His place on the throne of Armello was to be determined by his own hand.
Challenging the king to mortal combat, Brun brandished his weapon and charged. It was clear that the king, eyes burning with evil and hatred, had enough strength to put up a fight.
