Tristan vs. Decious 03

Tristian battling Nox Decious

1,000 years ago, Arthur's knight Sir Tristian fought Nox Decious in this very spot. The castle was in ruins then as well, so it is unknown when it was still functioning as a castle. Thousands of years ago, the castle belonged to Merlin and Nox Decious, but once he had turned evil, Decious has destroyed the castle leaving it nothing more than a mere wall.
