About this author

Since before your star burned bright in your sky, I have waited to write a biography.

Forged in the heart of a star by a slumbering god, I - Shon Karthkaroth - was created as a weapon of war to battle the Destroyer: A cosmic force of entropy and decay. Our weapons were the fundamental forces of the universe itself, concepts your species can barely begin to understand.

Carved quanta, shaped into blades met shimmering super-string shields, while whole galaxies fell into ravening black holes and gods themselves died in the millions, but still, the Destroyer was only slowed. Finally, as an act of ultimate sacrifice, my good friend Cosnot flew his diamond lattice-ship into the Infinite Manifold.

So, a friend of mine (an internet friend) does drawings. He had a commission slot open, and in a moment of weakness, I hurled 20 dollars at him.

In exchange, he drew a character from my (as of yet unpublished) novel Worldshard.

And it's basically perfect.
