Orlando Bloom arriva in King of Avalon con a precise story behind it. The new hero was once a famous and respected knight, until the Unmelted, evil creatures that brought cold and terror to Avalon appeared. One day, while traveling alone, Orlando was attacked by a horde and, as he tried to repel them, his right hand was hit by an ice blade.
Without hesitation, Orlando cut off his hand but the curse of that wound was more powerful than he thought, turning him half into one of those creatures himself. When Orlando returned home, he discovered that this new identity of his aroused fear and hatred in the people in Avalon, so he became an outcast, heading to Dragonsholm City looking for a place to stay.
