Mardan Mardan was the son of William, Ninth Count of Mardan, and became Tenth Count of Mardan with his fathers death. By then, he was already a great Knight, and immediatly set out to Eagle City; and five years later returned with several ‘strange and powerful’ people. He refered to these as his Companions. He stopped at the City of Mardan only enroute to uncover the great mystery of the ruins that lay East of Thorn.
A year after entering the ruins he, and all the members of his expedition, were declared dead!
The companions of Mardan are described as being Eight persons of Power and Conviction.
