Make a Choice No person is inherently good or bad. It's about the choices they make When I first launched Blood Omen in Georgia, at the very first presentation, a random elderly white-haired man walked up to me when I was signing books and said: Then I forgot about it for a year or so. This summer angels hit me with a boom! I got an idea while I was on a beach hol.

After killing The Dark Entity, Kain realizes that he himself is the final corrupt guardian, born as Ariel's successor, and is left to decide between sacrificing himself to restore the world but destroying the vampire race , or ruling Nosgoth in its damnation.
He raised a cadre of vampire lieutenants to conquer Nosgoth's human kingdoms,  establishing an all-powerful empire under his control while the land decays.
On advice from Vorador, he seeks Janos Audron, an infamous, long-dead vampire who holds the key to his destiny. Soul Reaver 2 , Blood Omen 2 and Defiance expand the backstory of the series. Initially, alongside the humans, two other major races existed in Nosgoth's distant past: Though the vampires worshiped The Elder God, the Hylden rejected his doctrine, and the vampires declared war in response to this blasphemy.
Divorced from the wheel of fate and their god, many vampires turned to suicide, and as their race died out, the humans of Nosgoth seized control of the Pillars.
Review – Blood Omen 1: The Vampire Wars by Katie Ruth Davies @katieruthdavies
Kain's spiritual corruption hinders him from realizing his role as the balance guardian—he seeks to somehow resolve the dilemma he faced at the end of Blood Omen by both restoring the Pillars and returning them to vampire rule. Defiance covers earlier points in the same timeline, directly after Soul Reaver 2. Kain and Raziel each discover evidence that the ancient vampires and Hylden had prophesied two champions—one representing each race—who would decide the fate of Nosgoth. Raziel learns from Mortanius that Kain was raised using Janos' heart, and rips this from Kain's chest in their last battle, ostensibly killing his former master.
His free will, and his destiny to enter the Reaver consuming himself , ensures that neither champion can win. He encounters Raziel, and they reconcile; Raziel enters the Reaver willingly, but first uses his spiritual powers to cleanse Kain of the corruption he had inherited at birth as a member of the Circle of Nine.

They skirmish briefly, and Kain wounds the Elder with the Reaver, but is unable to destroy him. Each of the Legacy of Kain games concerns distinct themes and dilemmas, but their overarching philosophical topic involves fatalism and man's struggle for free will.

Perhaps it is merely a perspective", and to "address morals, evil and good, propaganda and fate in ways that have never been explored in a computer game before".

Eliot and James Joyce influenced the story. The developers also attempted to subvert the monomyth and other tropes within literature and gaming. Silicon Knights conceptualized Kain, a vampire antihero inspired by Clint Eastwood 's Unforgiven , as an atypical "gray" protagonist, neither good nor evil, despite being advised in that such a character would not appeal to gamers.
As long as he's following a path laid out by someone else, ultimately he's going to fail".

Official Tomb Raider Blog. Soul Reaver 2 manual. Vae victis — suffering to the conquered. Ironic that now I was the one suffering. Not anything as pedestrian as physical pain. Rather the cruel jab of impotent anger — the hunger for revenge.
I didn't care if I was in Heaven or Hell — all I wanted was to kill my assassins. Sometimes you get what you wish for. The Necromancer Mortanius offered me a chance for vengeance. And like a fool, I jumped at his offer without considering the cost.
Silicon Knights November 1, I seek only a cure. There is no cure for death. You must destroy the sorcery that is now poisoning Nosgoth. Only then will you realize peace. The Nine of the Protectors of Hope were sworn to use their powers to preserve our world. Now these pillars have been corrupted by a traitor. My murder at the hands of this beast drove my love Nupraptor mad. Now he spreads misery and pain among the Circle, crumbling the very foundation of Nosgoth. You must restore balance. You must right the Pillars of Nosgoth.
Vorador thought my curse a blessing. That we were gods and that mortals offered their blood as sacrifice so that we could enjoy our supernatural powers. And somewhere deep inside my new self I knew he was right. That mortal dreams were prayers. Prayers to us — begging for our power. The stronghold of William the Just. In my youth, I witnessed William's rise to power, and his transformation into the 'Nemesis' who laid waste to Nosgoth. Keep your distance, Kain. Years later, I stumble upon a chance to journey back in history, unaware that the entire affair has been carefully orchestrated by Moebius.
In my wisdom, I seize this opportunity to murder the young king before he can ravage Nosgoth I warn you — no further!
This one reckless act unravels the skein of history. The Nemesis never becomes the Nemesis; William dies a martyred saint. I, the vampire assassin, become the author of my own species' extinction. And Moebius profits from it all. I destroyed a tyrant only to create one far worse. Crystal Dynamics October 31, You betrayed us Mortanius! You had Kain killed and turned him into a monster! You set him upon us! It had to be. Nupraptor's insanity poisoned all of our minds. The Circle had failed in its sworn duties. It had to be destroyed. I am the last Pillar.
The only survivor of the Circle of Nine. At my whim the world will be healed or damned. Thirty years hence, I am presented with a dilemma — let's call it a two-sided coin. If the coin falls one way, I sacrifice myself and thus restore the Pillars. But as the last surviving vampire in Nosgoth, this would mean the annihilation of our species.
Moebius made sure of that. If the coin lands on the reverse, I refuse the sacrifice and thus doom the Pillars to an eternity of collapse. Either way, the game is rigged. The Clans tell tales of Him. Few know the truth. He was mortal once, as were we all. However, His contempt for humanity drove him to create me, and my brethren. Crystal Dynamics August 16, This world is wracked with cataclysms — the earth strains to shrug off the pestilence of Kain's parasitic empire.
The fate of this world was preordained in an instant, by a solitary man. Unwilling to martyr himself to restore Nosgoth's balance, Kain condemned the world to the decay you see.
