Bhar’kesh was born in Lagash, a crumbling “strong”hold of the ancient Arkhosian Empire. Living there are the descendants of the noble families, clinging to their heritage and lost power. They resent the gods who were of no help in their time of need, and have turned away from the divine.

They embrace primal and arcane powers, in addition to the martial prowess for which Dragonborn are famed.

Arjhan was to be the next leader of the colony when he came of age, and Bhar’kesh was to take charge of the Wardens who kept Lagash safe from harm. In the interim, the chief shaman Donaar Kalecgos was in charge. His son Kedran was in study to be a mage and was a close friend of the royal family.
