The Ceremony of Chaos is a sanctioned free-for-all style PvP battle exclusive to players in clans. It is meant to help train clans to work together and give opportunity for further practice and honing of one’s own PvP combat skills. Rewards from the Ceremony of Chaos benefit both clan and individual character.
Gran Kain, the father of all creatures and the world, observed the progress of his daughter Shilen’s evil plans. Although he felt resistance to her was futile, he was saw the races of Humans, Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs, Dwarves, and Kamael continue to fight. It was slow progress, but the determination of the races moved them forward steadily.
Gran Kain was impressed by this and decided to promote their cause, despite that he rarely involved himself in the fight between light and darkness. He called upon his subordinates, the fallen angels, to call upon the heroes of the races and challenge them to a test of ability, offering to grant some of his own powers to the victor and their clan.
Rumors circulated among the adventurer races that a representative of the gods—perhaps Pa’agrio or Shyeed—was helping them battle Shilen. Some also suspect it may be Gran Kain himself, but they doubt this because of the god’s generally negative nature.
The orders came from a mansion but the identity of the owner is never revealed; the only representatives of note are the Mysterious Butlers Lumiere and Ains, who organize the Ceremony of Chaos. Lumiere appears to be human but this is but a disguise to hide his seraphic identity.
Lumiere has the ability to create spaces in other dimensions, and upon Gran Kain’s orders he created four arenas for the Ceremony of Chaos battles. The arenas exist in a dimension located between the material world, and the world of Chaos ruled by Gran Kain himself. As such, Gran Kain can watch the battles easily. To protect the truth of their location and the identity of the organizer, the arenas were designed in style of familiar places in the material world.
The Mysterious Butler NPC can be found in every major town or village near the Olympiad Manager NPC. He serves to provide information about the Ceremony of Chaos, the ability to watch ongoing matches, the names of the current True Hero character and Best Clan title holders, and to sell items and buffs in exchange for Adena, Fame Points, and Mysterious Marks. He also sells exclusive rewards to the True Hero character for Mysterious Marks.
Items he sells to all characters for Mysterious Marks as well as Castle Siege Soldier Badges include:
