Erin Cropwell was a Thaian royal explorer for king Tibianus I. Doing this, he followed in his father Alistair Cropwell's footsteps, who also was a royal explorer and was executed for claiming there was another empire besides the Thaian one, which he mentioned in his notes. Erin likely sought this city his father claimed to have found and travelled therefore into the eastern wilderness beyond Thais. He ventured through a mountain full of cyclopes and continued south to a shoreline along a desert. Here he wandered until discovering an abandoned ruin where he met his tragic death, which he tried to record in his diary.
