Biography[edit | edit source]

Valiant Universe[edit | edit source]

Gilad Anni-Padda was born in the year 3268 into a warrior tribe and was raised alongside his brothers Ivar and Aram.  He was thought to be the greatest warrior of his tribe during his youth.  The three immortals were chosen for unknown reasons to assist Geomancers, humans given supernatural powers to defend the Earth. Gilad was given the title of Eternal Warrior and found he was not only ageless but also could heal wounds with ease and was stronger than the average human.

Gilad's people claimed he carried with him the "Leopard Spirit", perhaps the force that gives him his power. He is known to be over 5000 years old and though many of his tales have been unchronicled, it is known he have influenced pivotal world events.  He is tasked to protect the Earth by ancient forces when he is needed.  He has also learned many skills and talents over the course of his life.

For countless centuries, Gilad's missions were given to him by Geomancers, a line of mystics with the ability to speak with the Earth. Notably, he also helped stop Erica Pierce, also known as the Mothergod, from rewriting reality and merging all timelines into one.

In the 41st Century, before reaching 7,000 years in age, Gilad was kidnapped by assailants who probed his mind and erased his memories.  Eventually, he was brainwashed into thinking he was a humble fish handler named Gillie Prachter.
