For the Light

By Karen Aldain

I do not have the words to describe Sir Caranthir Taralom. Friend to many, myself included, our High Incantor, he was never afraid to do what was needed. Amongst his many deeds he dismissed Estoban, the undead leader of the Jackals Faction, and for this, and other actions, was made a Knight of Lantia. He wanted the enemy to know him, to know he was making a difference in the fight. But he never failed to be there for those who needed him either, to support his friends and his faction.

Let me tell you of an elf, a friend who helped us find our way –
A man named Caranthir Taralom.
High Incantor of the Lions, always first into the fray,
Through our memories he will live on.

Faith provides to the end – Never waver, never bend.
We will fight for the light – So proud.
In Caranthir’s name we will fight to the end.
Faith provides, we survive – To the end.
To the end.

From a broken heart there grew a man where once had been a boy:
His potential was quickly recognised.
Mentored by Ezekial Crane, enter Incantor Man and Wedge Boy!
Together fighting undead in disguise!

Faith provides to the end – Never waver, never bend.
We will fight for the light – So proud.
In Caranthir’s name we will fight to the end.
Faith provides, we survive – To the end.
To the end.

He swore to the Prince Bishop, but his true path was his faith –
A protector following St Cuthbert’s steps.
By dismissing Estoban he showed that no undead were safe,
Undeterred by power, rank or respect.

Faith provides to the end – Never waver, never bend.
We will fight for the light – So proud.
In Caranthir’s name we will fight to the end.
Faith provides, we survive – To the end.
To the end.

If the enemy knew him, then he knew he’d made his mark,
And the Akari knew he’d take them down.
Made their hit list and died for his stand against the dark;
We will fight them to the end, we have vowed.

Faith provides to the end – Never waver, never bend.
We will fight for the light – So proud.
In Caranthir’s name we will fight to the end.
Faith provides, we survive – To the end.
To the end.

Sailing now on the Elysium, our souls still his concern,
Caranthir lives on through his many friends.
We cannot help but shape the lives we touch, and be shaped in return,
And so it is we never really end.

Faith provides to the end – Never waver, never bend.
We will fight for the light – So proud.
In Caranthir’s name we will fight to the end.
Faith provides, we survive – To the end.
To the end.
