Auros, the God of War likes to get his hands dirty. He revels in the chaos and animosity of battle and enjoys meeting his opponents head on whenever possible. Even with that mindset, he knows the value of magic, and will use spellcrafters to give him any advantage possible. In this case, by using the spell he called “Fury.”
Auros wanted any easy way to grant strength and courage to his followers. He also wanted his champion to be able to grant it as well. He approached Althaia, a beautiful and well known spellcrafter who regularly created minor spells for Gods to use whenever needed.
Taking a piece of parchment created from the skin of a Charging Oryx, she wrote the incantation in the blood of a Reckless Flamebreather. The magic combined with these two ingredients created a powerful spell that grants the receiver strength and courage for the coming battle. Being a simple spell, the effect is minor, but every little bit helps when there are a lot of creatures on the battlefield.
