Ataraxis affected by the curse
is the Sphinx-like founder and Ruin Lord
of the city of Nexus
and was one of the lords who ensures peace across the once fragile, war torn World of Veil
. He has been cursed into a slumber, threatening the fragile peace of the world. At the start of the game he orders the gathering of a hero, and promises rewards beyond measure for those that can find a cure.
Ataraxis' Crystal, found in in the Frost Reaches and once charged by the 3 Ruinscars around Veil, removes the curse and awakens Ataraxis. Before the curse is lifted however, we learn it was Rigel who placed the curse on the ruler of Nexus as a means to overtake as King of the city.
