  • Raistlin's Salvation
    Raistlin Majere is a character from the Dragonlance series. While he began as a good mage, his ambitions drove him inexorably toward evil. In his quest for power, he came close to attaining the status of a god, and destroying the other gods. However, when he was preparing to destroy the Dark Queen as she entered the world through a portal he had created to her realm, claiming her place in the pantheon of gods, he was warned by his brother Caramon that his actions would result in the destruction of all life, leaving Raistlin the eternal god of a dead planet. Having chosen to become the god of destruction, he would be unable to create or sustain life. Recognizing his folly, Raistlin gave the Staff of Magius to his brother, and passed through the portal, sacrificing himself to delay the Dark Queen, giving his brother time to seal the portal with the staff, and prevent her from entering the world.
