Bright Nights, Dark Days
The cousins of magic on Krynn can actually be called the birth parents of the Guardians. As it was them that recruited Gabe, into their organization and formed the initial parents of what would eventually be known as The Guardians.
The cousins of Magic needed a way to get involved with affairs on Krynn but without actually involving any of their brethren in the affairs directly. So they decided it was in their best interest to actually recruit someone who could do the job of a knight and still act in the best interest of the cousins themselves.
Gabe was chosen as the individual for this task.
With Ami gone Gabe quickly found he had very little interest in living and was constantly searching for a way to bring his beloved back. The cousins provided him with a means and the empty promise of returning Ami to him, provided he did the job they wanted. Providing him with a base of operations on the red moon above Krynn, Gabe would act as a stop gap to make sure the events that took place during Krynns own Chaos war would not happen again.
Gabe had found a new lease, believing that the cousins would hold up to their end of the bargain, Gabe’s relentless pursuit of Krynn’s enemies took on a life of its own. He began recruiting old allies into his fold, built another citadel up around him and even began taking on old enemies. Gabe and the Guardians quickly began building a name for themselves and quickly became an untouchable bunch of hero’s backed by enigmatic leaders that never showed their faces, leaders which had no intention of honoring their deals.
Gabe had even found a way to return Silverback’s wife to him, with this Gabe found new hope, If there was hope for Silverback than perhaps they could return Ami as well.
But still there loomed things in Gabe’s past which he could not shake. Akmisdues had learned of Gabe’s return and was fairly uninterested in the events that had taken place. That was until Gabe’s team began to return from the darkness which he had thought he drove them into. Akmisdues couldn’t let Gabe recover so easily and baited a trap for him. He offered Gabe, Ami’s soul in exchange for an artifact of immense power. In Gabe’s hasty desperation to get his beloved back he never bothered to look into Akmisdues reasoning’s nor what the artifact could do. This mistake would cost him dearly.
The cousins had lied, when Gabe found out he was infuriated, they never had any intention of returning his beloved. In his rage and anger he threw down the mantle of leadership which the cousins had given him and went rogue. He would take matters into his own hands, and he would deal with the devil if it meant saving an angel.
Gabe went to Akmisdues and accepted the proposal. The artifact which Gabe was after was created eons ago by an unknown race and had the capacity to actually drain a Deities spark and steal it for the wielder. When the cousin found out they attempted to draw Gabe back in but they were unsuccessful and their attempts were only met with blockades thrown up by the Guardians themselves. Gabe was already on the loose, and the cousin needed a new plan.
