This character is the culmination or fulfillment of some centuries-old prophecy. The prophecy can be a good one ("A great champion will be born to your people.") or a bad one ("The seventh son of your seventh son will be cursed to destroy all that he touches"), but in either event it is a central part of the character's being. It will influence his actions, his views on life and/or the role(s) he chooses for himself. Special mystical powers may be a part of the prophecy, especially for characters whose destiny as protectors and saviors has been long foretold.
