People who meet Danzan for the first time might be taken aback by the gap between his physical and mental ages, as the teen doesn't sound even close to how people of his age should, seeming more like a full adult. Intelligent and charming, Danzan can easily contribute to any conversation and make a good impression on people if it’s in his interests.
He comes off as a benevolent and soft person, however that is only an exterior he is putting on, since this kind of behavior is what is expected of him as of a young man striving for priesthood. In fact, he is a social chameleon, capable of adapting and changing his behavior depending on the situation he ends up being in. His true personality is summed up in a cold heart and a sharp mind, always scheming and calculating. He lacks compassion for people, unless they’ve managed to become close enough to him to make him care, and he is ready to take any risks and proceed with any deeds, good or bad, as long as they help him to achieve his current goal.
Despite of such a cold personality, his faith is sincere and he is a very religious person. He has a pretty firm image of what is good and what is evil in his head and understands pretty clearly that some of his actions and views do not fall under ‘good’ category. Although there is a sinister side to him, he strongly believes that his intentions are always pure, and that sometimes evil must be done in the name of good.
Danzan and Zagan were a result of a careless decision of their mother, who foolishly fell in love with an unreliable man and put too much trust in his words of their ‘soon marriage’, that in the end were, obviously, unfulfilled. Being the youngest daughter in a heavily religious farmer family that lived in the lands surrounding Cantor, the young woman had to suffer through a lot of humiliation and detest that came not only from other villagers, but from her own family as well. As a result, the woman grew to hate her children long before they were even born.
Considering that they were conceived out of wedlock, and therefore were a product of sin, the boys were not welcomed in the family at all. However, the same religious views that made the family treat the kids as rubbish were also not allowing them to throw the boys out of their house, since that would throw a shadow on their reputation of ‘good’ people. Therefore, once the boys grew old enough to perform chores, the family started to treat them more like servants, making the boys work for the food they were given.
Their grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins were giving them an indifferent silent treatment, which was bearable as long as the boys would behave and do their work well, avoiding punishment (mostly physical). Their mother, on the contrary, was a raging furious flame. A single look at the boys was enough to enrage her and even a single hint on misbehavior was followed by a severe punishment, which was always ignored by the rest of the family as nonexistent. The boys were a product of sin, so keeping them from the evil by a twig was a rightful thing to do. What the woman hated the most in her children were their eyes. Blue, unlike the rest of the family's, staring at her the same way as the eyes of the man who has tricked her into shame.
Danzan was always a quiet child. A lot calmer and weaker than his brother, he seemed meek and humble to the family and therefore was getting a little sympathy in contrast to his rebellious and hot-headed brother. He never looked up at the family members and never spoke unless asked to which made people believe in his obedience. However, the child was not as limp as the family and the villagers assumed him to be. Since the early age Danzan has learned the line of behavior that would keep him out of trouble and therefore followed it quite sufficiently.
His obedience ensured that he would be monitored by the family a lot less than his brother and that gave Danzan a certain freedom that he was, doubtlessly, aware of. While he was a child, his misdeeds were minor and, most of the times, went unnoticed. And even when something was discovered, it was always blamed on Zagan, leaving Danzan out of trouble. A discovery of Danzan’s talent for healing was also a helping factor, since the family started to consider that the child was blessed, which made Danzan’s life even easier. Despite of the problems that he brought to his brother, the boys were still getting along well, mostly since Danzan was the only person treating his brother with kindness and care.
As time went, their uncles and aunts have all left the farm, starting families of their own and moving out of the village. In a few years after their last aunt left, the boys’ grandparents passed away and the boys were left under the iron fist of their mother, who grew more and more bitter towards them with each passing year. As Danzan was growing up, the field of his mischievous interests had spread and the teen started to pay attention to the village girls, sucessfully using his charm on them. However, he paid a great price for his carelessness. Or, better say, his brother did. One day one of the farmers complained to the twins’ mother that one of her boys was giving funny looks to his daughter, without stating the young devil's name. The woman, however, decided the culprit herself, putting the blame on Zagan.
That evening Danzan came back home to hear heart-wrenching screaming of his brother. Rushing to the door in terror, he broke into the house just to find his brother on the bloodied floor, covering his face with red hands and his mother arching over him with a bloodied knife in her hands, screaming. The next memory Danzan has of that moment is his mother staring up at him with horror in her dead eyes and his hands locked on her neck.
Panicking, Danzan rushed to help his brother as best as he could, trying to stop the bleeding and wrapping his wounds. He tried to heal his brother with magic, but certainly the basic skill he has developed by that time was far not enough to treat the wounds his brother had. Scared of the villagers finding out of his dreadful deed, Danzan set their house on fire to cover all traces and took off to Cantor, taking his wounded and weakened brother with him to find a proper help for him there.
Just as he was told in his childhood, Danzan found out that Cantor Abbey was indeed the place to give help to those who needed it. With no questions asked, they healed his brother and gave them shelter, and that couldn’t go past Danzan without leaving a trace in his mind. After a few weeks spent there waiting for his brother’s full recovery, Danzan made a decision to stay, not only as an inhabitant, but as a seminarian aspiring to priesthood. The reasoning behind such decision was not only his faith, that has grown numerously after his brother's recovery, but also the blame he has put on himself for the sins that have lead to such a tragic turn of events.
- Just like his brother, Danzan was not taught reading or writing until he started living in the Abbey. Even though his skills are still not very good, he tries his hardest to get rid of this flaw and hides it eagerly from those who are not aware of it.
- Even though he is glad that his mother is dead, he still feels the guilt for murdering her since it was not his intention and happened when he lost control over himself.
- He is still hiding the truth about his mother’s death, since he is too scared of the consequences that might follow. However, he understands that at some point he will have to confess about it to enter priesthood.
- Even though he is less muscular and weaker than his brother, he is the taller one of the twins and is a lot healthier than Zagan.
Zagan Sansar – twin brother. Zagan is Danzan’s greatest treasure and Danzan is ready to sacrifice anything to ensure that his brother has a comfortable life.
