Trebor was a normal person just like most non-Tropers. One stormy night, in 2004, he was cruising through the internet, looking for something to do because he had been grounded for destroying his kitchen with arcane magicks. Lightning struck his desktop, and many swords shot out of his computer screen, a number of which slammed into his head. On that day, the Bladist was born. With more hidden plot devices than a webcomic author, and Implausible Fencing Powers to rival a JRPG protagonist, Bladist remains forever vigilant in the face of evil. Also, he likes cake.
