The mysterious leader of a gang in the dry lands between Aerzale and Edim, 79 Blades is believed to be a title passed down from an original person that was inherited by subsequent generations. Supposedly, three people have held the title to date. The original title-holder came from one of the 80 tribes that occupy that land, an alleged son of the chieftain. At the time, the tribes were largely individual and partially antagonistic towards one another over territorial disputes. As a result, many caravans passing through were subject to seizure by one tribe and harassment by another. This eventually led to Queen Wendelynne sending troops out to destroy their livelihood.
79 Blades, succeeding his father, pled for amnesty if he could resolve the tribe's conflict. Wendelynne granted this. Over the course of the next 5 days, which was the granted grace period, 79 Blade went with a small group of his elite tribesmen and they conquered the other 79 tribes, stealing their ancestral arms. Having collected all 79 ancestral blades, 79 Blades thus gained his namesake and forced all the other clans to serve his own, taming the entire region. There were later rumors of scandal about 79 Blades and Wendelynne, though this was never proven.
Today, 79 Blades is like either the grandson, granddaughter, or an apprentice that has taken up the title. They still ride with a gang to police the region, remaining both a legend and a bogeyman among the 80 tribes. It is said the original tribe 79 Blades came from was never clear, and all tribes are still in confusion over who raised that spitfire. Either way, their ancestral arms were eventually returned to commemorate 20 years of peace. However, they always keep an ear to the ground for the mysterious 79 Blades who watches over the peace.
79 Blades has mixed records. He has been known to rob some caravans, delivering goods to those in need within the tribes, or just for his own gang's gain. Some say he saved all 80 tribes in doing what he did, while others say he destroyed their way of life.
