Timeline Unaltered

The timeline describes the events of Nosgoth's History and the time-travels of Kain and Raziel. The paradoxes alter events in the History, creating new timelines.

In this timeline… Kain knew that the young king Willian changed from being a benevolent ruler to become the despotic Nemesis who began the conquest of Nosgoth.

For his part, William was able to start the conquest of Nosgoth after surviving an assassination attempt by the young and inexperienced vampire Kain.

Thanks to Marie Walter from Dark Chronicle for her english review of this document.

3000? B.K.The Elder God reveals himself to the ancient vampires and they accept his doctrine of the Wheel of Fate.

The vampires begin a war against the Hylden when they refuse to submit to the Wheel of Fate of the vampires' god.

The Hylden build the Device to host the Mass, a creature with the power to exterminate vampires. To work, the Device needs a network to send the Mass' energy onto Nosgoth. However, this network remains incomplete.

1000 years later…

2000? B.K.The vampires defeat the Hylden confining them in the demon dimension. In revenge, the Hylden curse the vampires with bloodthirst, sterility and immortality. Due to the latter the god of the vampires turns his back on them, which leads many to commit suicide in order to rejoin the Wheel of Fate.

After the war, vampires erect the Pillars to keep the Hylden in the demon dimension. The Circle of Nine is formed, a group of guardians called to serve the Pillars. Vorador forges the Reaver and Janos Audron is its guardian.

In an attempt to perpetuate their race, the vampires pass the dark gift of vampirism to humans, Vorador being the first one to be turned into a vampire.

Centuries later…

1000? B.K.The human population grows at the expense of vampires. Humans begin to replace the vampires as guardians. The vampires abduct the human guardians to preserve the vampire rule on the Pillars.

The Elder God reveals himself to the guardian of Time, Moebius, causing Moebius to refuse the dark gift of vampirism. Moebius and Mortanius start a revolution against the vampires. The human Circle of Nine creates the Sarafan Order, dedicated to wiping out the vampire race.

Centuries later…

The human Raziel is born.

Some years later…

Raziel, Turel, Dumah, Rahab, Zephon and Melchiah are ordained Sarafan warrior-priests, with Malek leading the Order.

The Sarafan reach Janos Audron thanks to the path opened by Raziel. The human Raziel kills Janos. The Sarafan take Janos' heart and the Reaver. Raziel renounces his past as Sarafan priest and follows them to their stronghold.

Back at the stronghold, Raziel faces Moebius and Malek. The First Massacre of the Circle begins. Vorador kills six of the nine guardians. Malek can not reach them in time to prevent it. Mortanius, Moebius and Malek are the only survivors.

Raziel recovers the Blood Reaver and kills the Sarafan priests Melchiah, Zephon, Rahab, Dumah, Turel and his former Sarafan self, Raziel.

History forces the Blood Reaver to turn against Raziel to consume and trap him inside, creating the Soul Reaver.Go⤵

Mortanius offers Kain the chance of revenge. Kain accepts and is resurrected as vampire.

Looking for a cure for his vampirism Kain meets Ariel. She tells him that the only solution is to restore the corrupted Pillars by killing the guardians who serve them. The Second Massacre of the Circle begins.

Kain kills the first guardian: Nupraptor. Kain flees from the confrontation with the next guardian: Malek.

Kain reaches the Oracle's Cave following Ariel advice. The Oracle urges Kain to find the vampire Vorador in the Termogent forest.

Kain meets and befriend Vorador. Kain learns about the history of the vampire race and the problems of getting involved in human affairs.

At Dark Eden, Vorador is summoned by Kain. Kain kills Bane and DeJoule, while Vorador fights and defeats Malek.
