The Body


Height: 5’7
Body Type: Lean, slightly  athletic
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Gold

Appearance:
Due to her mixed heritage Ilithian has a darker complexion than most other Eyriens. There are golden undertones to her skin, and instead of getting darker with sun exposure she gets more bronze. Her hair is a little coarse. She dresses lightly in the warm months, and enjoys stretching her wings. Trousers are more convinent than skirts or dresses for flying. Her feet are often bare, though she will done silk or cotton slippers in a more formal setting.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15pts

Calming Touch
Physical Shields
Psychic Shields
Blood Bonds
Power Blast
Craft Weaknesses: Physical Craft- especially passing through objects. She is also unable to perform any sort of healing Craft. She’s likely to take off a finger trying to heal a papercut.

Personal Strengths: Determined, Fierce, Loyal
Personal Weaknesses: Naive, Impulsive, Mistrustful

Personality:
They called her disobedient by the old regimes standards. Even under the thumb of Dhemlan’s usurpation she was defiant and courageously headstrong. She is a woman that stands fast to her morals, and is not afraid to oppose any authority that goes against her ideals. Her sense of justice is finely tuned, so while she is fair she is unrelenting with her decisions once they are made.

Unlike many of her sex Ilithian is not opposed to the snarling and petting of males. Part of the reason her bonds are so effective is because she accepts their drive to protect, honor, and serve. She knows that it pleases them to be important to their Queen, and the ladies of Court and if allowing them to take care of her makes them easier to control in the long run, she has no qualms compromising. In her own capacity of serving she is utterly loyal to those that prove themselves. Likewise her dedication to Askavi and the Eyrien race often inspires a strong loyalty among her circles.

Ilithian has a knack for diplomacy that many would rather overlook due to the Eyrien history of violence. While she’s not ashamed to go to those lengths she is emotionally and intellectually capable of and open to finding more peaceful solutions. Sometimes you have to be the river, making change slowly over time. Sometimes you must be the rock, hard in the face of adversity. And when absolutely necessary you have to be fire. She has a very specific vision for a better Askavi and she will do whatever it takes to cultivate that future for her people.


The Backstory


Family:
    Dead. All dead, dead, dead.

History:

YBW = Years Before Witch’s Death
YAW = Years After Witch

28 YBW - In the intricate cave systems of Ancravi Province a group of rebels defend against the tide of Witch’s takeover in Askavi. Here Gilvar, an Eyrien warlord meets the beautiful, wingless half-Shaladorian priestess, Xalvadorian. They are married not long after.

25 YBW - With no healer present Xalvadorian has a difficult and complicated labor. Too much blood is lost. Ilithian is born a squalling hellion, her caste and cries the last things her mother senses. Before she joins the Darkness once again she prays fierceness into her daughter.

19 YBW - The rebel’s safe camp in the mountain caves is discovered, forcing Gilvar to take Ilithian to the mountains of Shalador.

18 YBW - Age 7 - After a year of running and hiding Ilithian and her father are brought before Shalador’s puppet Queen. Gilvar is executed, the child is sent back to Askavi to be trained properly in her caste.

18 YBW until 11 YBW - Ages 7 to 14 - Ilithian’s caste training takes place in Aryxian Eyre, Mellavi Province, Askavi. Queens of Dhemlan and Eyrien race apprentice a small coven of Eyrien queenlings at the sanctuary.

13 YBW - Age 12 - A small group of Eyrien orphans are brought to perform their Birthright Ceremony. Even though she was considered too young by some standards Ilithian managed to walk away with a Blood Opal.

11 YBW - Age 14 - Despite their best efforts to mold her behavior Ilithian is persistently defiant against the wills of her puppet teachers. Her fate is to be decided at a Province Court ruled by one of Witch’s pet queens. By a twist of good fortune the caravan transporting Ilithian, another willfully disobedient queen, and several rebel criminals is liberated by Eyrien warriors.

11 YBW until AW - Ages 14 to 25 - Until the final uprising against Witch young Ilithian lived in the last Eyrien stronghold on Undavi Island. She perfected her bonding ability, calming touch, and diplomacy skills by interacting, training, and settling the squabbles of younger children also sheltered on the island. One young warlord in particular forges a close friendship with the young queen. However Witch’s Death sees the colony spread wide as families seek one another out.


15 AW - Age 40 - Ilithian begins to gather a tight inner circle of trustworthy friends. Not a real court, but the first testing of her caste's ability to rule. After spending seven years in a relief camp near the mountain caves of her birth she has gathers a small group of loyalists. They encourage her to declare the area a district, and she does. The next three years are spent expanding, then enforcing the new districts borders. Warriors come, not to fight but to be bonded. Seeking people of their own to protect. The area flourishes, but there are so many still suffering that Ili can't help setting her sights broader.

25 AW -Age 50 - Appealing to Shalador’s desire to rid Dhemlan influence from their lands Ilithian is able to recruit a small force of warriors to bolster her military force. Together the troops successfully expel all Dhemlan soldiers from Ancravi Province. With that accomplishment under her belt Ilithian is able to take command of the Province Court. That appeases her for a time before she turns her sights to the neighboring province of Mellavi.

35 AW - Age 60 - It takes almost six years but Ilithian eventually has a strong hold on both Ancravi and Mellavi. Most of the district courts are ruled by loyalists, or at least allies. She needs to make a statement to all of Askavi and Dhemlan, to show them the length of her dedication in liberating and uniting her people. Even though it is outside of her province borders Ilithian takes the mountaintop eyre of Ligure as her Court Seat. It has a direct line of site to The Keep and overlooks the opposite edge of the Black Valley from Ebon Askavi.

37 AW - Age 62 - With the dream of a united Askavi to fuel her determination Iithian decides it is time to making her Offering to the Darkness. Though uncommon she chooses to forgo her Virgin Night for the time being. A web working to hide the fact rather than deal with her courtiers opinions. There is just no one she can trust to perform the deed, and she's still too young to think much about sex. When the sun rises she walks away with the Sapphire. And a plan that formed while she reached into the Darkness for her full power. A plan to expand her influence further. She starts a border war with the province of Undavi & Isle. After some intense fighting she discovers the ruler of the province is the warlord friend of her childhood. They are able to come to a beneficial peace agreement. Grain from Ancravi helps alleviate the famine in Undavi, while strong timber from Mellavi is used in the building of a new harbor city on the island. The warlord remains the province ruler, but accepts a position in Ilithian’s First Circle.

40 AW - Age 65 - With more than half the territory under her control or influence Ilithian makes a display of publicly declaring herself territory queen. She receives backlash from both Dhemlan and Eyriens wary of what they call a mixed-breed child ruler. Not fully Eyrien, thought she looks the part. And not even old enough to be called a woman. The long task of proving herself to her people began.

90 AW - Age 115 - Despite being young and as brash as ever Ilithian has spent her time wisely. She has made alliances with foreign powers to ensure Askavi’s position. Invested every resource in rebuilding the villages and farmlands destroyed in the war. Directed War Parties in daring liberation expeditions into Dhemlan territory, freeing Eyrien ‘criminals’ set for execution. Slowly the Eyriens have begun to accept she is more winged warrior than not. Most of Strigavi is reclaimed since the Dhemlan people are not capable of traversing the high mountains like an Eyrien.

Present - Age 125 - Peaceful entreaties to return the territory to Eyrien rule are given no legitimate response by Dhemlan. An exchange of Ambassadors is in the midst of being tried, but no one can say how it will work out. One way or another Ilithian has set a personal goal to see Askavi free of Dhemlan soldiers by the Winter of AW 102.
