Velskud was a member of the Cassius Kingdom Knights, and later known for being one of the members of the Six Heroes who fought Black Dragon Karas. A talented swordsman and a close friend to Geraint, the founder of the Six Heroes, his skills in wielding a sword were respected by many. For some time, he was on the ranks of the Dragon Followers as an apostle, given the title of "Knight of Kaleon".
He lives on in the romanticized stories of the Six Heroes as a hero who lost his life in saving his comrades. However, the true story tells of his betrayal, taking the lustre of the Black Dragon and partially blinding Geraint in the process.
