Koen (Kartosael) was born in August 1989 in the Netherlands. For as long as he can remember, he has been spinning tales and sketching drawings of worlds that exist only to him. His love of games came at an early age, when he was about three years old, and it hasn’t stopped since. Having played many MMO’s, he finally settled on Guild Wars 2.
Although he has been drawing for a long time, writing was something that came later in his early teens. The name “Kartosael,” which he uses all over the internet, was the name of the main character of the first story he ever wrote. Even though that story has been lost in time, he kept writing. Some stories were good. Others were really bad.
When the opportunity came to combine his love of games and writing, it was no surprise that he had to pounce on it. Now, he is anxious to write for Chronicles of Tyria. All the while, he continues to play computer games, to draw and to study chemistry.
