Details are sketchy about the death of Solarian. Most contemporary historians and The Solari agree that he traveled with a band of heroes, and was perhaps their leader. They were in pursuit of a necromancer that had raised an army of undead, including a dragon, with some unknown but evil purpose.
In their struggle against the necromancer, Solarian sacrificed himself, giving his life to save many innocent people, possibly even the city of Sentra itself.
At this point, historians laud his sacrifice, but go no further. The Solari, on other hand, believe that he ascended into some sort of godhood or sainthood.
