Aretimis Raios was born near the skullstone islands following in the family businesses of privateer. When his father died, his brother Acaleus Raios took over the ship as captain and together they built a new crew and continued the operation. Things took a turn for the worst when the Lintha appeared. The two brothers fought back to back against the fiends but Acaleus fell. With a roar Scythe attacked with renewed fury. He had to win in time to stabilize his brother. As he fought things slowed and light surrounded him the voice telling him to fix the cycle and suddenly he was no longer losing no longer could the blades strike find there mark. Golden essence had solidified into armor. He was surrounded in golden armor and he fought back pushing the pirates back rending them with his scythe. He was severally outnumbered and the new power did not hold up against so many and just before he broke the line the Lintha Captain joined the fight fresh and ready to kill a young solar.

The Deathlord however saw an opportunity and snapped it up. As life left Acaleus he was spoken to by a cold cruel voice “Give me your name and your soul. You can help your brother again stand take the power I offer and you will be stronger. Slaughter these pirates just swear your soul to me and you dont have to die. Your brother doesn’t have to die." With the last of his will Acaleus agreed and exploded in black essence rising like a corpse on strings and rejoined the battle. Black and Gold danced around each other with deadly grace and destruction. They took the Lintha ship. Since his brother could never use his name again they both took titles. Artemis became The Scythe that Hunts the Dead. Acaleus became The Hunter of Life and Death.

For a time they traveled together in search of the one that Hunter was sworn his soul to. Each was gifted a weapon by Hunters master. Hunter a soul steel blade and Scythe a Soulsteel scythe. Each took the weapon and did what they were told attacking a mercenary company threating a local village (Or so they thought) it turns out it was the company protecting the village. When Scythe realized he was angry with Hunter, his brother knew and let the order of his master bind his tongue to the truth. The argument turned into a fight and eventually both bloody and exhausted Scythe landed a surprise punch to knock Hunter to the ground and held the scythe at his brother throat ready to slay him but he couldn’t kill him instead he drug the man back to the ship and put him in the captain quarter and did his best to tend his wounds at least he would be able to recover. Taking the Lintha ship he sailed away selling the ship and what money he had left to continue west. Chasing a lead on what the scythe truly is and what can be done for it.
