Infinite Planeswalker
Life had been peaceful for Hadrin Skyforge, before the planeswalkers came. Two of the world shaping titans decided his back yard would be an ideal spot for a pitched battle. When they left, his family lay dead or dying along with the entire village. Hadrin thought he would die, too, but the battle ignited his spark, turning him into the thing he now hates most: a planeswalker. His first act was to bind his mother, a Soul Warden, to him. Now, having gathered all but one of the spells he seeks, Hadrin hunts down other planeswalkers and brings them to justice, his justice.
Fastion is one such planeswalker…and he has the last spell.
