Prophet Ascension was born to a rich noble family in Resplendent Makuun. He grew with an arrogant and cocky attitude. When his family was slaughtered in a Harpy raid Ascension single handily slayed them all. At age 7 that is a promising feat. Combining his healing skills with his scythe he fought many people in his life time. Ascension has a lot of rich noble friends in both Cantha and Tyria who purchase diamonds from Vabbi. The biggest buyer is the White Mantle and the Am Fah. His trade routes can go through places were humans dare not walk. For example the UW and Desolation.
