Soggul (Doublenix’s Character)

“I dreamed of my life before the days of this dark hole. Dreamed of the times I spent wandering, looking for a place to call my home. I thought that one day I would find my home, settle down and find some relative peace. I had to come to realize the truth: That day would never come.”

“I was sleeping in a small cave when the slavers came for me. I figure they saw the warm glow from inside from my small fire, but this does not matter now. They came for me, beat and burned me, tied me up and hauled me away. That day was like a dream… no, more like a nightmare.”

“I was sold to the mongoliants brought me to this arena and sold me for entertainment. I was to fight others to the death. At first, I fought back in my own way. I refused to fight, unwilling to take another’s life for the entertainment. They took me to the darkest room, deep below, and there the nightmares became real.”

“The sting of the barbed whips and other devices of pain twisted me, broke me down. After my first session, I strangled a man in order not to return there the next day. I still see his surprised, pale face at night when I sleep.”

“I was placed in one dark hole after another. Some I could tolerate, like when I was placed in a dimly-lit group cell. The others felt like a coffin. I would cry out, struggle, do anything I could to try to get out of them. The others, the dark torture rooms, were the worst. They were cramped and they did terrible things to me. My body tells the story of those rooms and I remember those agonizing days every time I look at it. All of these things were done to motivate me into taking life on that arena floor.”

“Now, from the benevolence of a select few brave warriors, I have a chance to be out of the dark holes and be out in the open air again. I am terrified, but I have a chance at freedom. To my saviors, I am thankful and because of them, I hope to see the sky again soon. Maybe then the nightmares will finally be gone and I will be able to have dreams of peace again.”
