History[edit | edit source]
The Skelle from Bretagard clan became the terrible force it is today under the tutelage of Varragoth, a demon who escaped from Immersturm. Once in Bretagard, he quickly established himself as the leader of the Skelle raiders, who were all too happy to ally themselves with a demon. He led them to Beskir Hall, slaughtering anyone they found along the way. The gods, seeing the violence wrought by this intruder from another realm, stepped in and battled Varragoth for an entire month before finally wrestling him back to Immersturm and restoring the wards meant to keep demons bound there. On Bretagard, the winter season is still known as Bloodsky in memory of the massacre.
Trapped, Varragoth did not grow complacent. He intended to escape Immersturm and nursed a grudge against the gods and Bretagard for a century.
During the Doomskar provoked by Tibalt, Varragoth managed to leave Immersturm with an army of demons and to attack the other realms. He attacked Kaya in Bretagard to take the Sword of the Realms and prevent the closure of the Omenpaths. He swept Kaya, Tyvar Kell and Arni from the giant raven that was taking them to Halvar. The demon then personally attacked Kaya but was stopped by Cosima, the goddess who remarked that he didn't have wings before. The army of elves led by Harald arrived to help Kaya. Tyvar and the elves tried to hold the demons and Karfell's army to give Kaya time to reach Halvar. After Kaya delivered the Sword to Halvar, Varragoth attacked again, but was killed by the planeswalker who slit the demon's throat using one of the axes made by Tyvar.
