“Welcome to Southsun; we have everything one could hope for on their summer vacation! Beautiful water glistening in the sun, warm sand, tropical flora, and did we mention the gorgeous beach views? Oh, and the aggravated wildlife, unhappy settlers, corrupt Consortium, and, uh, the sylvari criminal wrecking havoc? No. Whoops, must’ve slipt my mind.”
Canach is a secondborn of the sylvari, deeply involved in the events at Southsun. Originally hired as part of the Consortium crew to explore and map the area, he and his fellows accidentally provoked the wrath of the Karka, who subsequently followed Canach and his surviving fellows back to Lion’s Arch and attacked. Canach himself was eventually apprehended for his involvement, offering to help subdue the Ancient Karka before fleeing custody.
While on the run, Canach as hunted but Subdirector Noll’s ‘decommissioning’ team, a group hired to kill him. Unfortunately for those folk, Canach managed to keep his drastically altered head firmly attached to his neck and shoulders. The same could not be said for them. Canach began to view himself as a champion for the weak whilst fleeing. To prove it, he took apart an entire Molten Facility by himself, and kept a pair of molten gloves as his prize. After an ‘after hours meeting’ with Provisional Junior Executive Blingg, Canach decided to turn his attentions back to Southsun and destroying the contracts that forced the refugees and settlers to remain. His methods were unorthodox to say the least. Spreading a toxin that distressed and angered the local wildlife, Canach caused chaos on the already turbulent Southsun, and continued to do so until he was arrested.
Canach ultimately regretted his criminal actions at Southsun, ashamed that Kiel had been able to destroy the contracts in a fair less dangerous manner. His time spent in prison was unpleasant, though eventually his billet was bought by one Countess Anise. After enduring a noble gathering, he attended the World Summit at Anise’s side, and was afterward sent to keep an eye on the Pact. What the future holds for the secondborn remains largely unknown, but will surely be revealed as the plans to engage Mordremoth and its minions unfold.
"Noll won’t get the head he was expecting. But I have these for him instead."
