Cartian, also known as the Great Sorceress, was a famous sorceress that lived roughly 300 years ago.

While a lot of her story is shrouded in mystery, it's known she single-handedly banished all the Cyclopes with her scythe when these were close to win a territorial war against mankind.

After the war the sorcerers split into several groups and went their way. Cartian and her followers settled in the land of Mediah where they founded the town of Tarif, a haven for sorcerers.[1]

The Book of Cartian, considered the textbook for sorcerers, was a magic tome written by Cartian. Considered too dangerous, it was sealed by her under the sacred tree called Scuffling Letusa.[2][3]

Shortly before disappearing she sealed the entirety of her destructive power in her scythe. Since nobody could deal with the power of the scythe, Allan Serbin, Cartian's good friend and the chief of Tarif, sealed the scythe again under the Scuffling Letusa.[4]
