Born in: Cavalon

Profession: Elementalist
Age: 37
The Turtle Champion is respected and honored throughout the Luxon territories for his courage, his profound sense of justice, and his awe-inspiring power on the battlefield. He was the first Luxon Champion to earn his title in mortal combat that ended without the death of either combatant. Argo's opponent, Tullus, had fought bravely, and continued to keep his guard defiantly up even after the bloody loss of a foot and many other injuries. Rather than strike Tullus down as the crowd demanded, Argo simply declared himself the victor and handed Tullus his sword. The gesture allowed his foe to leave the arena alive and with honor intact, but was a clear indication of Argo's victory—to hand over his weapon showed that the future champion had nothing to fear. Justice was served, the bloodlust of the crowd was relatively satisfied, and this noble act earned Argo the admiration of all the clans. Even the Kurzicks honor Argo's bravery and skill, as a foe against whom they themselves can hope to prove worthy.

Even more than the Luxons' traditional enemies, Argo carries generations of hatred in his heart for the Canthan Empire, which he, and many Luxons, believe has kept his people cornered in the most desolated section of the continent, the Jade Sea. Yet as much as he despises the Canthan Empire, the continent is still his home. And when threats arise that no one faction can face alone, Argo might be convinced to join forces with the Kurzicks—and perhaps even with the Canthan oppressors—to fight for the survival of all.

Boreas Seabed outpost, as an allied NPC:

"I am Champion of the Turtle. I will win this day, do not doubt it.
We of the Turtle take the time to study our opponents. Because I have studied my enemies carefully, they cannot stand against me. And neither can you, outsider."

The Jade Sea towns and outposts:

Did you need something?"

"For countless generations, we Luxons have been under the protection and rule of the Canthan Empire. Yet always have the emperors honored the ways of our people and granted us a certain level of sovereignty. We cannot turn a blind eye to their cries for help. We must work together to put down this great evil!"
