Additional Information

Ardbert, often known by his alias "Arbert," or as the Warrior of Darkness, was one of the five Warriors of Light of the First. As a chosen champion of Hydaelyn, he and his comrades vanquished the Ascian Mitron, but in so doing caused the Flood of Light that destroyed much of their homeworld. Joining forces with the Ascian Elidibus, he and his friends gave their lives and came to the The Source, where they attempted to bring about an Eighth Umbral Calamity before being defeated by the Warrior of Light.

In Shadowbringers, Ardbert's spirit is revealed to not have returned to the Aetherial Sea with his comrades. He appears to the Warrior of Light in a series of visions throughout the expansion, before merging with the hero during the climactic events. This was to give the player the power to overcome Emet-Selch and his transformed form, Hades.
