The Iron Mountain Range laid at the northern tip of the land, surrounding the Holy Hall like an iron wall. This renowned mountain range was known for its deposits of metal ore, which served as the main source of income for the Holy Hall.
As a group of people indigenous to the region, the Holy Hall directly governs over all of their faithful followers. The tribe led by Taara achieved many feats in the warring era. Though they lack the necessary crafting skills for fine weapons, they held their crudely-made hammers in valiance and smashed down on the invading Fallen at the foot of the mountains. Bloodbath after bloodbath, Taara's tribe paid dearly. However, even on the verge of losing the entire Iron Mountain Range, surrender never entered Taara's mind.
On the day of the resurgence of light, Taara and her tribesmen held a great festival. They lit the furnace deep in the mountains and celebrated with pillars of raging flames. Thane's messengers came at this time, announcing the order of the new king; due to Taara's valiance in the war, she was conferred a noble title. This meant she now owned a wealthy piece of land in the new kingdom and her tribe was finally able to escape the life of material shortages and hard mining work.
However, before Taara could plan her transition, Gildur's fury had spread to the Iron Mountains. As the Holy Hall's financial officer, Gildur knew that population meant production capacity, and he would not allow Thane to destabilize the cornerstones of the Order. Thane's messenger was exiled, and Taara was regarded as a traitor to the faith and imprisoned. In addition, the taxes for her tribe would be doubled for the next ten years as a punishment.
Having the ground collapse beneath her, she fell from heaven straight into hell and endless torment. Veera, who had been spying from the dark, seized the chance to rescue Taara, leaving her with these words: False gods fail you in light; why not embrace true darkness? Disappointed by the Holy Hall, Taara submitted herself to the abyss. She was willing to be baptized by frost fire, and commit her soul to a dark will.
