“Weep, oh nations of Khorvaire, for the Jewel of Galifar is no more. You have finally completed what you started when you rejected the true and proper right of Mishann to ascend the throne of Galifar. With your jealousy and petty ambitions, you have brought this disaster on us all!
Weep, my brothers and sisters, for our homes and our families have been eliminated in a foul and cowardly way. Do not let Cyre be forgotten! Do not let the Day of Mourning end! Not until we have discovered the villain. Not until we have made the villain face justice for this heinous crime. Not until Cyre’s children are once more safe and content within their homeland.
Weep this day, my fellow Cyrans, and never forget. But tomorrow…tomorrow we begin to hunt down this villain, to demand justice, and to rebuild beloved, cherished Cyre. Tomorrow! Tomorrow we shall go home!"
— Address to the Cyran Refugees at the Brelish Camp (which would become New Cyre), 994 YK
Prince Oargev is the last living member of the Cyran royal family. He was serving as Ambassador to Breland when the Mourning destroyed his family and homeland.
When King Boranel invited all Cyran refugees to settle in Breland, Oargev took upon himself the enormous task of bringing the survivors together, around New Cyre, a town in eastern Breland that four years ago was a stretch of empty grassland in Yedan’s Expanse, near the northern Seawall Mountains. Aristocratic and handsome, the prince is also harried and worn by his many responsibilities. Even though he lacks an army, commands few economic resources and was not invited to sign the Treaty of Thronehold, Oargev has a plan.
In the meantime, however, he is beset with reminders that the once-proud Cyran people are now a diaspora of refugees and victims. As 998 YK begins, he has already been confronted with the Slayer of Cyre’s Children (a mysterious serial killer that has struck in places hundreds of miles apart), an incursion of Goblinoids threatening his establishment of farming homesteads, and the prospect that someone tried to refine the “dead-gray mist” of the Mourning itself as a tactical weapon.
Oargev sponsors expeditions into the Mournland and offers rich rewards for relics and natural specimens brought out of the mists. The young prince has become something of a naturalist, knowledgeable about all the native species of plants and animals, and an expert on the strange mutations found around the Great Chasm. Oargev is particularly eager to recover Cyran regalia.
