Daniel Richard Hyral is the first child of Alexander Hyral and Shelia Hyral, born in the small town Ordana, in Baron, during the year 1286. Roughly a year or so after his birth, another child soon joined the family, his brother Stephan Hyral. Although he recalls happy times from his early childhood, a chain of tragic events would befall the family after Daniel turned twelve years old. This culminated with two events that would forever change his life. The first was his father's death in 1300, defending Baron from invasion. Overcome with grief, his mother tried to end her life a few months later, leaving the brothers in the care of a family friend, Remarte Wallace.
At the insistance of Remarte, as well as friends to the family, Daniel decided to fulfill a promise made to his father and mother. He left Ordana to train at The Temple of the Dawn, an Ishtarian temple reknowned for training in the arts of combat. There, he began to learn the ways of Ishtar, as well as the ways of a warrior. It was Daniel's dream to bless and help the injured with help from Ishtar, yet take up arms to defend them if necessary. However, for reasons that he is reluctant to speak of, Daniel was asked to leave the temple, and told to never return.
Unable to bear the though of returning home a failure, Daniel decided to travel Igala on his own. If he was not worthy of being a true Paladin of Ishtar, he would do what he could on his own. He even jokingly referred to himself as a 'Pseudo-Paladin', when offering his healing and combat services to those in need. He also sought information on the fate of his estranged sibling, who ran away from home during Daniel's stay at the temple. This led the fallen holy warrior across much of Igalia over the never several years. But his life would drastically change once again, when he visited the capital city of Doma.
Daniel became mixed up in a small group's mission to hunt a criminal to the Doman crown, End Reshiki. During the journey after this man, he was shocked to come across his estranged sibling, Stephan Hyral, along with his traveling companion, a mage named Midoku Tornas. This journey also revealed a far more sinister plot going on against Doma. They learned of a powerful demon, attempting to call forth a portal into the plane of hell. Their conflict to stop the demon would be a life-altering event for both siblings. Over the course of their long journey, they reconciled many hurt feelings and guilt since their father's death. When they succeeded in their mission, the two finally returned somewhat to the close relationship of their youth.
Having saved the world from a demonic threat, Daniel felt more confident in his abilities, though still troubled by the events of the past. He came to the aid of many people in Doma over the next few years. Eventually he even helped the King himself, assisting King Charles in his mission to rescue a dear friend. For his efforts on behalf of the nation, the King granted Daniel the status of Doman Knight. Due to his new title, and the responsibilities that came with it, Daniel found himself remaining in Doma much of the time for years to come.
During his time in Doma, he meet and begin a relationship with Kyra Ryujin, a priestess from the Doman town of Varrock. The two immediate fell deeply in love with one another, spending as much time together as they could. A few years later, oddly enough at his father's grave back home, Daniel proposed to Kyra, asking for her hand in marriage. After a joyful yes, and a fainting spell on Daniel's part, the two were married several months later. A year or so after that, the pair were overjoyed to discover that Kyra was pregnant, with twins no less. Nine months later, they became the proud parents of Austin and Alicia Hyral.
To this day, Daniel still serves the country of Doma, in addition to taking on tasks for the greater good of his fellow man, playtime with his young children, and being a devoted husband. With a family to care for, however, he often fears meeting the same fate as his own father, Alex. He also worries about the events of his past, wondering how he can put it his mistakes right, and still fulfill his responsibilities as a knight, husband and father.
While his family was far from perfect growing up, especially when his parents got into loud arguments, he always felt they all truly loved one another very much. He looked up to his mother a great deal, in her devotion to Ishtar and the compassion she gave anyone under her care. He also admired his father, someone willing to speak his mind and stand his ground, even in the face of strong adversity. While he often found himself at odds with his more reckless and wild sibling, Daniel knew he could count on Stephan when needed, and vice versa.
