The Seven Swords of Sin
Hao Jin (The Ruby Phoenix)
Known as the most winningest competitor in the history of the tournament. This sorceress had the amazing ability to resurrect from death numerous times (much like a phoenix). She supported the tournament as its greatest benefactor and structured it to the way it is today. Because of this, the tournament was named after her in her honor. During her lifetime, she adventured in the continents of Thassilon, Ambitus, Ubronia, and Ferraria and helped establish the Pathfinder Society. Her mass wealth in money and magical items were left as the foundation funds and prizes for subsequent tournaments following her disappearance and assumed death. One day her ashes were stored in the Urn of Darkness and were left there for 25,000 years. The evil energies of the urn transformed her into an evil, black phoenix. She was ultimately slain by the PCs; her soul able to rest at long last.
