“The Blackstar shall deliver us all to paradise.”
Pounding at Aryeli’s Gate in northern Valencia, the fragments of chaos furiously work to break through. As the divine master of sand, the Hashashin holds this evil at bay while attempting to uncover the truth of the Blackstar, rumored to be what will bring paradise to all.
The beauty of his crescent-shaped Shamshir, reminiscent of a crescent moon, belies how quickly Hashashin can sweep through desert foes with ease. His Haladie, brimming with sand magic, affords him the ability to manipulate and meld with sand itself. Able to disappear and reappear in an instant, or summon countless whirlwinds to shred his foes, his repertoire of abilities leaves his dumbfounded enemies no way to counter.
Blessed with the divine power of Aal, the Hashashin’s blindingly fast movements and precision strikes deal critical damage to enemies.
Embark on an adventure with the Hashashin to discover the truth of the Blackstar!
"The Blackstar shall deliver us all to paradise.
We stand guard against the darkness
'till the day we breathe our last.”
This mantra was the only ever-present constant in their lives, along with the unforgiving shifts and tides of the war waging across crimson sands.
But three years had passed since the Blackstar fell in the far west,
and paradise was nowhere in sight. Everything the elders foretold never came to be,
while the endless stream of monsters crawling out of the dark pits showed no signs of abating.
"Hear me. For I am the curved blade of Aal,
the master who shall unleash his raging winds and sands.”
For only Hashashin could cut through the chaos,
by faith alone he had overcome the gruesome training and the grief of returning from battles where his countless of his comrades had fallen.
It was none other than Kayal Nesser, an outsider, who broke this vicious cycle.
A bastard of the Royal Family of Valencia,
and next-in-line to lead the order as Qabal, “The One at the End”.
It was Kayal who had long kept the fragments of chaos at bay with his comrades,
but in the end, it was he who ran away. The elders, full of scorn and hate, preached:
“The Blackstar of Salvation has yet to descend, for there are those weak of faith.”
“None but us, the souls who’ve endured through the tragedy of battle, can enter paradise.”
“For Kayal has failed to wash away the blood of hypocrites.”
Forced once more to enter the blood-stained battlefield, Hashashin awaited salvation, yet doubts still remained.
"Why do the people of the war look upon it with disdain and call
what the rest of the world knows as the Blackstar as the Redstar?”
Once planted, the seed of doubt in the back of his mind could not be uprooted and only grew.
Kayal’s desertion, the existence of monsters, the meaning of salvation, the Blackstar’s identity.
He questioned the truth behind the teachings and scripture of Aal, but his search for answers only led to more questions and festering doubt.
It eventually spurred him to leave his life behind and stow away on a boat.
Then a black energy--one whose red eyes glistened with glee and had been waiting by his side for so long--finally began to possess him.
Hashashin Sand Art Video
Charge forward and slash the enemy in an instant.
The opponent is struck with such speed they will simply collapse, never realizing they were even attacked.
Envelope yourself within a violent tornado, then hurl yourself towards your enemies.
Anyone caught within the tornado’s grasp will be flung into the sky.
Hourglass of Defiance
Call forth a gust of sand to make an imprint at your current location.
You can return to this location while you are within a certain distance.
The sand magic contained within Haladie summons quicksand and a biting wind to subdue enemies.
As enemies are ripped apart by the wind, they are pulled into the quicksand like a vacuum.
Empower your Shamshir with Haladie’s power, then thrust it into the ground.
The ensuing sandstorm will clear all poor souls caught in its path.
