Origins of the Black BowEdit
(To be added...)
Tigrevurmud's Usage of the Black BowEdit
After his victory in Molsheim Plains, Tigre equipped with his Black Bow has set out into many battles where he has had to use it. In the Leitmeritz-Olmutz Campaign, Tigre used the Black Bow's power (with the aid from Arifar) to aid Elen in destroying the gates of Tatra Fortress. When the Silver Meteor Army clashed against Navarre Knights at Orange Plains without him, Tigre and Titta ventured into Tir Na Fal's temple where he received a new power after passing the Goddess's test.
During the Asvarre Civil War, he used the Black Bow's power-combined with Zaht's and Muma's-to prevent Prince Eliot's escape from the Salentes Plains, as well injuring Torbalan at the Asvarre Seas. Later on, as "Urs", Tigre also utilized the Black Bow's power to injure Baba Yaga during his rescue mission in saving Liza which also.
Several months after that incident, in Brune Nice was suffering a coup de'tat from Melisande, Tigre also fought briefly with Ganelon by using the Void Arrow to nearly injured him before his subsequent retreat.
The Debunked LoreEdit
Before his departure to find Ganelon, Tigre met Sofy at one of Silesia's inn where they discussed the truth of the lore about the King of the Magic Bullet. Sofy then explained her recent discovery about that lore and, if any indication about the lore is true, she suspected Tigre as somewhat an incarnation of the said lore, much to Tigre's shock but he continued to listen since it is also connected to Tir Na Fal and the Demons' sinister ambitions. As Sofy reminded him about the consequences of the lore by telling that he will becoming either a Hero or a Demon King, depending on what he does, Tigre however declared he would never become the Demon King, much to Sofy's relief. As her tease, she requested Tigre to take her somewhere once the chaos in Zhcted is over.
Ganelon's Threat letter and the Fall of SilesiaEdit
As the civil war broke out, while the Vanadises were left to deal with their respective adversaries (Legnica Army, Polus Army and even Muozinel Army), Tigre was staying behind at Silesia in order to contain the chaos in Silesia. Suddenly, Tigre received a threat letter and inside the content, the former Duke threaten Tigre that he will kill Eugene if he didn't come to Zagan, forcing the Earl of Alsace to leave the capital. his departure however causing Silesia to descend into chaos where Eugene was arrested and imprisoned by Miron and his supporters, who assumed the Earl "had betrayed" Zhcted by "inviting" Muozinel Army to invade Zhcted, and Julian Kurtis, the son of Ilda was perished during his quest in avenging his father's death by declare war on Ruslan. As the result of this chaos, Tina and her army took over Silesia and the Void Vanadis herself declared to be Ruslan's "Assistant" when she was praised as a "hero"by its citizens. Fortunately, some people such as Titta, Gerard, Gaspar and Damad barely escaped from Silesia before it's complete fall.

Despite Tigre's best efforts, he is unable to save David and Rena as they are killed during the Demon's invasion, even though other villagers have evacuated in one night despite with lack of preparations to defend the village. After arranging a funeral for David and Rena, while riding a horse that is given by the village elder, Tigre continues his quest to Zagan and vows to make Ganelon pay for his atrocities he inflicted to the village.

Along the way, they meet Titta, Gerard, Gaspar and Damad from the hands of some bandits and learn that the four had already left Silesia before it's fall. With Titta's intuition that Tir Na Fal could be located at the North West, everyone except Gerard (who decides to stay behind with Olmutz-Polesia Army to inform Regin) make their way towards Elen and Tigre.

Ganelon's Fall and DemiseEdit
(To be added..)
The following incident after Ganelon's death and Tir Na Fal's disappearance have change Tigre and the Vanadises forever. Despite their victory and regains the Durandal, Tigre and the Vanadises are extremely exhausted from so they have to take a break first camping with Leitmeritz Army. With the fossilization of the Viralts and Bargren's disappearance, not only the Vanadises are (temporarily) losing their powers but they also have to use any normal weapons while relying their battle experience and their soldiers for their future battle.
Their battle however is not over as they have to confront Tina and her allies as their last obstacle in liberate Zhcted from its civil war. Sometime after obtaining the Magical Chains for her own ploy, Tina decides to check on the heroes via Ezendeis's teleportation for Leitmeritz Army's location and supposedly challenges Sofy in a duel. Sofy, who is alerted by Tina's presence alone, is "injured" by Tina before she could even reach for Leitmeritz Army. Panicked over what happened to Sofy without even investigate her "corpse", the Void Vanadis eventually make her hasty retreat as she seeing Tigre-who is holding the Durandal- and others heading towards Sofy, knowing Durandal's properties in nullifying magic via an information about Roland's defeat.
Sofy's incident has igniting her allies' anger and sorrow, especially Tigre who vows to defeat Tina as he never forgives her for both hurting Sofy and her shady association with Ganelon. To commemorate the "fallen Vanadis", everyone is holding a "funeral"and Polesia Army had to withdraw while taking Sofy's "corpse" with them. That "funeral" is actually a ruse to fool Tina and Tina herself is actually fell for it. Together with an alliance of Leitmeritz Army, Olmutz Army and Lebus Army, the Black Dragon Army has finally established with Tigre and the 4 remaining Vanadises as its major founders with the ultimate goal to defeat Tina once and for all.
Tina meanwhile further increasing Silesia's defense by having Osterode soldiers to install the Magical Chains onto the Imperial Palace's wall, specifically her room, despite not knowing all the Vanadises' lost of power. Not just her enemies, Tina also have to keep her act because of her concerns towards several figures in: Silesia: Miron the elder chamberlain who become increasingly unhinged over Eugene's death, and also Valery, Ruslan's only son who is entrusted to Tina herself because he is shunned and ridiculed by ministers in Zhcted including Miron.
As for citizens of Silesia, since the disappearance of the purple skies they praises Ruslan for his "praying the Gods at the Silesia Imperial Shrine", all the while unaware of Tigre's and his allies' sacrifices to defeat Ganelon the real source of the phenomenal. Regardless, anxiety still looming over the capital over the "impending" threats from other factions. This including Barbarians Army from the North who seize their opportunity to crush Zhcted after House Kurtis's destruction, and House Rodina of the South whose supporters using King Viktor's granddaughter's name in their uprising against both Eugene and Ruslan.
In any rate, these very events following the aftermath has lead the final showdown between Tigre and Tina that will finally ending the brutal civil war that plagued Zhcted for good.
