Timeline Kain saves Raziel

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 prevented the Reaver to trap the Raziel's soul, altering the History. This paradox changed the events lived by Kain in his past where he confronted the hylden and learned how these would take the Janos' body for their plans.

Before losing sight of the exhausted Raziel, Kain tried to prevent these events would take place warning Raziel he should not resurrect Janos Audron.

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.

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.
