As a member of the CXXI Legion and a follower of General Troyus Machistes, Ciscor Foranes came to the Plateau as a conqueror. Retiring from the Thyatian Empire, he later stayed as a governor of a free city and conquered and build the County of Forania. His family has ties with the Kendachis of the Thyatian territories on West Thothia and a friendship with Cardinal Galleanus that goes back many years to their service under General Machistes. Count Ciscor married Adora, the leader of the local Thothian community but it’s rumored that he had a daughter outside his marriage with a servant named Selsa, who named the daughter Ciska.

Organized religion is one of the biggest power groups on the Plateau. The Church of Thyatis under the control of the Gallienus Family is opposed by the Church of Thothia who is backed up by the Kingdom of Edairo and possibly, by the Pharaoh of Edairo itself. In Forania, the leader of the Church is a weak one who has the same power than the Gallienus family but uses that power to oppose anything that can be traced to Thyatian benefits or origins. This has turned many political groups against the Church’s Leaders.

He trained other bugbears until he has a legion and claimed to his General the opportunity to proof himself. General Homer gave him many tests of strategy, valor and blood on different thyatian colonies like the Hinterlands, Norwold and the Isle of Dawn until Senator Mulatovilus of the Thyatian Senate, proclaimed him an outcast just to damage the General’s reputation. Torogus and his army were wanderers until Coutn Ciscor Foranes gave him a fort and a place to live making them citizens of Forania. Centurion Torogus has the experience and bravery of a thyatian general and Count Foranes has a great respect for him. The respect is mutual.
