Ark was a military student under the service of the High Flora military and Gerand Darmoor. During his time in the academy, he befriended Albaire. He and Albaire swore to protect each other, no matter what had happened.
After countless wars, Ark saw the flaws within the race and military, realizing that the High Flora were massacring various races in Grandis, peace being an excuse for war. Suspecting Ark of betrayal, and for his hesitation in the last battle, Limbo captures him and makes Ark the subject of a Specter ritual as punishment for his betrayal. Ark's soul was almost consumed, but Albaire had interrupted the ritual, keeping true to their promise to "always protect each other". Ark passed out shortly after, falling into a deep slumber.
After a few hundred years, Ark comes to on the planet of Verdel, not remembering anything about his past, and having the arm of a specter.
