Ioncius is a 80th level Forsaken Priest on the Moon Guard (US) server. He belongs to Recreational Chemistry (hereafter called RecChem), a guild focused on exploration and monetary expansion. He is the secondary financial backer to the guild's endeavors along with the Tauren hunter Sturn.
Ionicus was created during the end of August 2008 as a leveling partner to the Tauren warrior Maribar (also of RecChem) during a Recruit-A-Friend promotion. The thinking behind the character creation was that I wanted to play a healing class and had gotten several priests to mid-levels, but never beyond. Also, healers are a high-demand role in end-game, so I figured I would have more opportunities, even though I am casual. I believe I reached level 60 prior to Wrath of the Lich King, achieved level 70 on 1/6/2009, and finally hit level 80 on 9/8/2009. Play time is currently split between ALL my characters, but primarily the Blood Elf Paladin Thirinth.
Forsaken History Edit
Ionicus was already part of the Scourge when Arthas failed in Northrend the first time. He was, however, on an errand near the Burning Steppes at the time and therefore far enough away when Arthas' link was broken, as with many other Scourge. Brought to his knees by the "blast of his will" returning to his body, Ionicus could not recall exactly what he was doing in the Steppes at the time.
He quickly returned to the Ruins of Lordaeron with other, now-Forsaken Scourge, and fell into line under the rule of the Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner. He was openly hostile against any aligning under the banner of the Dreadlords Balnazzar, Varimathras, and Detheroc. It was an understatement to say he was pleased when Sylvanas crushed their forces, but has been continually weary of Varimathras.
Since that time, Ioncius has loyally served the Banshee Queen in freeing new Forsaken. In return, he hopes to find out exactly what he was doing while in service to Arthas, a question that burns at his conscious for reasons unknown. He believes that this is a very ill omen.
