Exalted: The Sun Also Rises

Larquen Quen was a young Solar sorcerer, apprentice to the great Kal Bax, and one of the finest minds of the First Age. Among those who knew his secret—that he was also the bearer of the forbidden title “Orpheus”—he was acknowledged to be an up-and-comer who would bring great distinction to the name. Before he could get the chance, however, the Usurpation occurred and drove him into hiding.
Quen was the mastermind behind Bax’s creation of the Hidden Fortress, the last bastion of the Solar survivors of the Calibration Massacre. Twenty-three Solars lived to make it to the Fortress.
