Every month we will spotlight one of the characters of Gatemaker and provide a little insight into who they are as the story opens. These descriptions are light on spoilers, but will hint at events to come, not just in Gatemaker but in the greater tapestry of the Spiralchain as well.
Embrew Sorrigon is a broken man. Born nearly sixty years ago on the world of Onus, Embrew has spent the last third of his life in captivity in the single prison cell beneath Gar Nought. In his youth, Embrew left his home to study with the Order of Gar and was quickly promoted through the ranks of the Order at the peak of the Gars’ efforts to unite the many worlds of the Spiral. Embrew was a close friend of the leader of the Order, Corudain, and traveled often to the worlds of Arctos and Pithysia. Embrew carried a heavy burden when he was asked to accompany Corudain on a mission that would come to be the greatest shame ever visited upon the Gars. Embrew’s life began to truly unravel, however, when the Wyr demanded that all travel between the worlds cease. Bereft of purpose, Embrew found himself involved in a dangerous and forbidden relationship–one that ultimately resulted in his exile from the Order of Gar and his imprisonment. Embrew has had nothing but time over the past nearly twenty years–time with which to regret his actions and pray to the Purpose for a chance at redemption.
Embrew is a Gatemaker of the highest rank and the originator of the Gatemaking technique of crafting Chaingates. His life nears its end, but before he take his final breath, he will set two powerful new legacies into motion. One might yet wash away the stains of his betrayal, but the other may yet be a darker crime than any other he has committed.
Embrew’s tale most often revolves around ideas of redemption and of desperation.
