|“||What a disgrace... It's hard to believe the Dozels are of Crusader lineage.||”|
As with the other Crusaders, Neir was a warrior fighting in a revolution against the tyranny of the Loptrian Empire, and was one of the survivors barricaded in Darna Fortress when the tide turned against their movement. It was at this fortress that the Miracle of Darna occurred, changing the tide of the war: Neir was chosen by an unidentified member of the twelve dragon "gods" who descended upon the fortress, to undergo a blood-bond with said dragon, transforming him into one of the Crusaders. He was granted Helswath, sealed to his new holy lineage, by this dragon.
With the other Crusaders, Neir fought in the rest of the Holy War and contributed to the downfall of the Loptrian Empire. At the war's conclusion, Neir and five other Crusaders founded the six states of Grannvale, the kingdom founded by their leader Saint Heim, with Neir founding Dozel.
