|Title||Argent University - Former Student Body President, Alumni|
|Race||Elemental-Touched Human (Wind)|
Trias Blackwind is a clever bard who enjoys embellishing his achievements and telling tales of grandeur to his fellow students at Argent University.
In the race for the chancellorship, Trias can recruit young, impressionable mages to join his side, allowing him to take more actions than other candidates. First appeared in Argent: The Consortium as a backer-created character, Trias is included in Trials of Indines as a fully-fledged BattleCon character.
- "So there I was, alone on the ship, because everyone who hadn't fallen overboard at that point had jumped. Turns out that was the wrong move, because this massive creature was rearing out of the ocean, taller than the Bell Tower even, snapping up everyone in the water like fish in a barrel.
I looked up at the thing, and he looks down at me, and he just lunges down, SNAP! Right across my chest like this, he picks me up, ready to take the second bite. See that big scar right across my chest? Sea monster bite.
But I got lucky. One of the sailors had lodged a harpoon in the bottom of its jaw, and I could see it sticking through into the mouth. You know how every thing gets slowed down and clear when you're in that kind of danger? It felt like minutes that I looked at forever. And then time started again. I grabbed the harpoon and pulled with everything I had, up, up, through the base of the mouth and into its brain."
- "So there I was, on the island. The cithara was right there in front of me, on a solid gold pedestal. But would you believe what happened next?
Larimore Burman appears, and he says he sealed up Blackwind, and that I have to beat him in one-on-one combat if I want the cithara. Well, I'd come that far, and I was in no shape for a fight, but I picked up the sword and gritted my teeth. I thought it was going to be a fair fight, but that's when he transforms into this massive red dragon, and slashes me right across the chest with his huge talon--that's how I got this big scar here."
Trias hails from the Southeastern continent of Amalao , a land of elementals, dryads, beastfolk, and other legends. Growing up on a beachfront village, he learned much about sailing, travel, and faraway lands. As a boy he sat in the taverns and listened to the stories the sailors would tell, dreaming of having a legend of his own one day. As a teenager, he left home to seek his fortune in the world.
After countless adventures, Trias appeared again, having discovered a mystical instrument within which was trapped his own ancestor, Blackwind , an elemental who had opposed the dragons in their ancient war a millennium ago. By enrolling in Argent , he is seeking to uncover the power of his own latent elemental heritage as well as discover a way to break the draconic curse on the cithara and set his ancestor free.
