The Daemon Hunters
The Daemon Hunters
The Daemon Hunters began as a group of lowly adventurers who banded together in an attempt to make a name for themselves. They consisted of a couple ninjas disgraced by society, a dragon-worshiping warrior, a happy go-lucky gunslinger, and a man who infused his own body with the machinations he created.
While trying to find notable work in the mid-level islands, a portal opened up near the city of Yarl in Zundae to the mysterious plane of Abaddon, which let the neutral evil daemons on the other side pour through and start decimating the populous of the demilitarized island. The group offered their services to the leader of the region, Autolycus, who gladly accepted their offer since the region had little-to-no defense against these foes. The party fought on for days against the daemon threat, defeating a few but not fast enough.
Then, another being entered through the still-open portal, but this was not a daemon or one of the other monstrosities entering in alongside the daemons, this was a Vyrian. The Vryian, a female magical archer, walked through the portal just as the rest of the party had fought through the daemon offensive and reached the portal. The Vyrian helped the party defeat the final of the daemons in a long drawn-out struggle that almost led to the death of the party. Together, the machinesmith and the archer used their abilities to close the portal and save the rest of Zundae and Tylwol from a massive Daemon invasion, which surely would have led to unfathomable destruction.
The Vyrian, now on the Tylwol side of the closed portal, decided to join the party in their adventures of this world, which is completely alien to her. Fast forward 3 years to present day and the party have become known as The Daemon Hunters, finding more portals to other evil planes and closing them before more damage is done. They are also credited with stopping the sinking of the islands of Tylwol, which were concluded to be caused by forces of one of the evil demon or Daemon deities. The Daemon Hunters have not commented on this as of yet, but the general public believes it was they who saved Tylwol.
The Daemon Hunters are now a well-known group of adventurers who still travel around in their ship, The Argo, fighting monsters, saving Tylwol denizens, raiding dungeons and making money. They are easily the most successful group of fighters in the world and most everyone knows of their exploits and bravery, treating them as modern-day heroes.
