Cain was reincarnated from a past life with a great transgression hanging over his head. He awoke in an abandoned limestone shrine in the mountains – the same shrine from which Varienne created Eidolon. Several adventurers took shelter in this shrine and encountered Cain, who joined their group looking for a purpose in life. In the glacial lair, or “glair,” of the yetis of Iceport, Cain found an ancient stone temple frozen within eons of ice. The architecture brought back flashes of memory, but did not reveal any clarifying details about his past. Cain accompanied the group back to the Sun Kingdom, where he parted ways with them.
In the course of his research, Cain determined he had a connection to an ancient temple in the land of Ekyrge. To reach the temple, he boarded a steam-powered airship carrying salt to Ekyrge, where he was reunited with Durza. Halfway through the voyage, the ship was attacked by a blue dragon. He used his telekinesis to draw the dragon near, allowing Durza and his new allies to bloody the dragon and drive it off. He then followed Mansa’s instructions, donned a paraglider, and arrived in the Highlands for a new adventure.
In Nianaqol, the capital city of the Highlands, Cain visited a history museum and saw a display of Ekyrgean columns. The sight sparked his sudden recall of all his past lives at once, putting him into a comatose state for nearly two weeks. When he awoke, he was in the Tomb of the Ancients, fighting Tohil and Ryloken. Cain helped to defeat the two undead guardians, then accompanied the Ghostbusters deeper into the mountain.
