Bastion, the Golden Child of Prophecy is one of the participants in the Trials of Strife. He rides a Zidek dragon into battle.[1]



A sketch of Bastion, as observed by MidKnight

Bastion used to be a slave in Gael. Stories spread that he was the "golden child of prophecy" and that he was on his way to compete in the Trials of Strife. Not wanting the distraction or believing in his supposed status, LexiKhan sent MidKnight to keep him away from the arena.[2]


Bastion was a slave boy in the Plane of Gael until, in a chance meeting, the mystical parlance of the Keeper LexiKhan revealed to him his prophetic destiny. That night, he escaped imprisonment with the help of a mystical Zidek dragon named Xander. Now Bastion and Xander fight in the Trials, helping to raise up the Army of Light and warning others of the coming darkness.


Bastion is a tanky hero capable of initiating fights with Zidek Charge and keeping his team alive with Golden Bracers. Breath of Oracles and his ultimate ability The Chosen One allow him to do considerable damage to enemies that can't get away.
