Heart of Haemnaethuun

During the Dawn War Haemnaethuun was among the most powerful of the primordials feuding with the gods. Many suspect that had it not been for Haemnaethuun, the Dawn War would have been a fairly quick and easy victory for the gods. Numerous gods attempted to bring Haemnaethuun down but all those who stood before him were slain. It was not until 6 gods banded together and confronted Haemnaethuun with the Dyrnnentine that he was at last defeated.

Although he was defeated, even the six gods together with the powerful weapon could not slay Haemnaethuun outright. What they were able to do though is remove the primordial’s heart and imprison it behind the six Seals of the gods. Without his heart, Haemnaethuun cannot come fully awake, and thus, his threat remains minimal. The Heart though is capable of waking Haemnaethuun should it be reunited with him. Although the Heart can bring back the primordial, it is dangerous and extremely powerful even apart from him. Many believe that the Heart can be used as a weapon by itself and there are those who wish to free the Heart for their own use. Whether used to resurrect Haemnaethuun or simply as a weapon in its own right, the Heart poses a threat to all of Kitara should it even fall into the wrong hands.

The location of the six seals is a bit of a mystery, but was is known is that the seals are breaking. The first of the seals, Kord’s, is believed to have been broken at least one hundred years ago. More alarming though is the fact that the seals are breaking at a much quicker pace. It is now believed that at least four and possibly five of the seals have been broken. Should all six seals break, the Heart can be freed from its prison and unleashed upon Kitara.
