Friars are a human class that use magic to heal other players. They are the support of the team that give their team-mates good protection and benefits by using their healing powers to cheat the god of death.
Before the time when gods and giants fought against each other in extraordinary battles that lit up the sky and laid waste to many of the lands, the gods were at peace with all of their creations.
Those were the days when the gods lived and walked with humanity. They taught humanity and the elves some of the ancient disciplines and skills of Asgard, which gave the people of the New World all the knowledge that they needed to survive and thrive.
One of the vital skills that the gods helped humanity master was healing with magic.
Freyja (the goddess of love) taught the first friars how to use the mysterious powers of the elements to heal soldiers. She noticed that although humans had become very good at warfare, their numbers were too few to risk all of their lives in battle.
Freyja taught the friars to pray to her for the power to heal their comrades. Her love for humans caused the sick to become healthy and the injured to pick up their weapons and head back into battle.
Healing is an amazing talent to have, but it couldn’t defend the friars from harm if they had to go up against an army of giants, so Freyja asked Thor (the god of thunder) to teach them how to call thunder down from the heavens and conjure light whips to inflict damage on their enemies.
Thor was so proud of how quickly the friars had mastered his techniques that he taught them how to use two of his favorite skills that he called "Split" and "Silence".
"Split" helped the friars conjure a directed lightning blast that inflicted tremendous damage on a group of enemies and "Silence" was used to paralyze an enemy for a few seconds, so that the giants couldn’t attack the friars and other warriors at all.
After many months of practicing, the friars took the basic knowledge that Freyja and Thor taught them and they developed some new skills of their own. They developed the abilities to cast shields to protect many of their comrades and conjure electricity on the ground that shocked all nearby enemies.
The time for the battle with the giants was imminent, and the friars knew that they could help the gods win the war with Loki (the god of chaos) and his army of giants by protecting the humans and elves from harm. Unfortunately, Hel (the goddess of death) and her father Loki unleashed the energy of chaos that killed all the gods and the giants.
After many years of wars between the gods and giants, when both were destroyed in the aftermath of the great wars, the skills that the gods taught the people of the New World would be handed down from generation to generation and used in the war between the three Kingdoms.
