Before Queen Isabel's WarEdit

Cyrus CoH

Cyrus, in Clash of Heroes

Cyrus was destined for greatness, as from an early age he showed the combination of natural talent and intense competitive ambition that leaders often posess. Mercilessly fighting his way to the top, Cyrus became a young and dynamic First of the Circle. Though over time his brilliance faded under the weight of a huge ego and a tendency to avarice, Cyrus remained a Mage of impressive power.OffBck

Cyrus was one of Azh Rafir's apprentices until he was corrupted and sent him and Nadia to prison. Cyrus gave confidence to Nadia to usurp and defeat her father, ending his plan to free the demons. Later, he married her and they had a son, Zehir.

Cyrus became the grand archmage of Silver Cities. He fought (along with High King Alaron and Alexei) in War of the Eclipse, but he didn't enter through the portal of Sheogh. Afterwards, he returned back to Silver Cities where he continued to raise up his son, Zehir.

During Queen Isabel's WarEdit

During Queen Isabel's War, Cyrus turned away Godric, as he requested help for fighting the Demon invasion and saving King Nicolai Griffin, laughing in his face when he begged. He was slayed when Markal took the Ring of the Unrepentant, and, when Markal bound himself to Ring before his death, altered to look like him to slay Zehir.


Cyrus is a Wizard.
