Alostar, Damay

Name: Alostar, Damay

Aliases: The Kel'Varan Nola

Inspired by: Will Greenway

Appears in: Savant's Blood: Shadow of the Avatar, Savant's Blood: Hecate's Bounty, Aesir's Blood, Gaea's Blood, Gaea's Legacy

Occupation: Professional Adventurer

Birthplace: Valintoth Province, Shardwin Realms fringe world

Hair: Dark Blonde

Eyes: Blue

Height: 5'2"

Weight: 120

Unusual Features: As a savant of forces, Damay has a number of unsual characteristics as a function of her Nola power. She is the most advanced of all the Kel'Varans and has the most control. Forces (including the force of gravity) have minimal effect on her unless desired. Damay has undergone leonization, or lifespan extension. She ages at about 1/100th the speed of a normal person.

Age: 4322 (10780 since birth)

Martial Status: Widowed

Known Relatives: None

Group Affiliations: Family Felspar, Family Kergatha

Magical Skills: While possessing incredible potential as a mage, Damay chose not to pursue magic in any depth. She knows enough magic to be dangerous however, capable of using 5th order spells when the need arises. As a savant of forces, using magic on her is almost pointless as she can easily absorb or redirect the energy.

Tournament Rank: Damay has not entered a tournament in centuries. Her skills in hand-to-hand combat are excellent, easily 8th circle rank. They would be higher except she, like the Kel'Varans before and after her, relies heavily on her skill with thrown weapons. Her accuracy even under the most adverse conditions is nothing short of phenomenal-- able to place a dagger or dart in the eye of an opponent at over 30 yards. Her accuracy with a bow is equally impressive-- able to hit any target that she can reliably see (and reach with the weapon).

Information: Eldest of the Kel'Varan's and reputed to be the most powerful. Damay fought many epic battles against Mandrimin (c.f.) the Ta'arthak Nola (savant of matter) in her time. About 6000 years ago she fell to Aarlen Frielos in a duel of magic, she was approximately 4322 summers old at the time. It is unknown exactly how or why, but Aarlen trapped Damay's tao essence in an amulet of shael-dal metal. It is surmised that the amulet was an experiment to create a magical item fueled by the essence of a savant. Apparently, the item was never completed. In 1091 N.I.S., Wren Kergatha came into possession of the amulet. She later resurrected Damay by rejoining her tao with a suitable body.

Ariok, Dominique

Name: Ariok, Dominique

Aliases: The Dragon Claw

Inspired by: Kaye Boardman

Appears in: Savant's Blood: Hecate's Bounty, Shaladen Chronicles: Anvil of Sorrow, Shaladen Chronicles: Who Mourns the Creator

Occupation: Professional Adventurer

Birthplace: Drakmourne, Silissia

Hair: Black

Eyes: Gold

Height: 6'1

Weight: 160

Unusual Features: Dominique spent the majority of her life as a vampire. She has since been turned from vampirism, but still possesses the fangs associated with it. During an experiment on Kriar homeworld she was accidentally exposed to huge amount of chronal/gate energy. The result left her body partly infused with chronal flux. This makes her skin give off a soft glow visible as a dim aura at night. She is also a wielder of a Shaladen blade which altered her physiology even more. She wields a sword named Blackrazor that makes her the avatar of the Eternal known as Garn.

Age: 260

Martial Status: Married (Marn Solaris) second husband

Known Relatives: Celaesh(son), Sariok Ariok (father) [deceased], Sabella Ariok (sister), Gabrin Ariok (sister), Sarokirin (sister), Sarok II (brother) [deceased]

Group Affiliations: Protectorate, Family Felspar, Kriar Counsel, Family Frielos

Magical Skills: Dominique is a gifted lore-mage that trained extensively in battle-magic. While her magic is not as powerful as her mother's it is quite potent.

Tournament Rank: Dominique is a highly skilled warrior that fights at the unlimited class level. Enhanced speed, reflexes, and strength make her an awesome antagonist. Hardened in battle she can hold her own even against such opponents as Sindra and Drucilla Frielos.

Information: Daughter of Gabriella Sarn Ariok and Sarok Ariok. Like her mother Dominique was turned to vampirism to survive in the Silissian campaign against the servants of Kali. Dominique was trained from birth to be a warrior specializing in the destruction of the minions of Kali. She is a renowed blademaster and with her extended lifespan, she turned to magic and became a loremage as well. Unlike her mother, Dominique was not a willing vampire, she was forced into it by her mother. Centuries later when this condition was a removed, it remains a point of friction between them. (Ah, the drama of having an evil dragon-draining vampire for a mother!) As a result, Dominique was always closer to her father, who as one might imagine was no angel either if he took a vampire as his wife.

Through a complicated series of events, Dominique attempted to free her mother after she had been captured by Dorian and Cassandra, and the evil purified from her. Not knowing what had been done to her mother, Dominique was quite surprised when her mother turned on her and assisted in her capture. Dominique too was turned from the darkness, and the vampirism that had been forced on her reversed. Many cycles later through a gradual campaign of persuasion, Dominique has slowly become friends with members of the Felspar clan. Though no-longer a vampire, she is still a 'vamp', and characterized by her smooth and lascivious dialogue, it goes without saying that she still likes whips and chains... but that's another story.

For a number of cycles, Dominique and Tal Falor were an "item" and both did a tour of duty in the Shael Dal where the lady began to like the role of the hero. She and Tal split up on friendly terms in 1087 N.I.S. Dominique's exempliary contributions to the Protectorate were significant enough that she was asked to continue being a contributing member.

It was through her involvement with the protectorate that Dominique came into contact with the Kriar high counsel Marna Solaris. She and the Kriar became fast friends in the wake of her recent seperation from Tal. Later, she and the Kriar lady became lovers. They eventually married when Marna underwent renewal. (Kriar periodically change sexual identity-- so Marna took on the identity of Marn--a male Kriar). Dominique has one child by Marna which she foathra'd when Marna was still female, a boy named Celaesh.

Dominique has been teaching the Kriar matriarch magic, in return she has been learning Kriar warp-science and gate control. The woman's already formidable mastery of magic intertwined with Kriar super-technology make her one of the most dangerous creatures in the Ring Realms.

Ariok, Gabriella Sarn

Name: Ariok, Gabriella Sarn

Aliases: The Dragon Queen, Drakka 'Tah

Inspired by: Kaye Boardman

Appears in: Savant's Blood: Hecate's Bounty, Aesir's Blood, Gaea's Blood, Gaea's Legacy

Occupation: Magician

Birthplace: Eastern Silissia (what is now known as Drakmourne Province)

Hair: Black

Eyes: Blue

Height: 5'9"

Weight: 150

Unusual Features: The latter half of Gabriella's life was spent as a vampire-- one that fed on the blood of dragons. She has since lifted those effects. She could not banish all of the physical characteristics. Her skin retains a scaley texture on close examination, and she retains the elongated incisors of a vampire. Being a mage of exceptional ability she can hide all of these facets.

Age: 14000+

Martial Status: Marred (Rayonne Nilsenia) 2nd Husband

Known Relatives: Sariok Ariok (ex-husband) [deceased], Dominique Ariok (daughter), Sabella Ariok (daughter), Gabrin Ariok (daughter),
Sarokirin (daughter), Sarok II (son) [deceased]

Group Affiliations: Family Felspar, 4th Trade Alliance (Family Frielos), Mage's Counsel of Elysium

Magical Skills: Gabriella is a consume illusionist and practitioner of sorcery functioning far above the level of grand loremage. Her illusions and charms are particularly powerful given her nature as a vampire. The "kiss of the dragon queen" was an enchantment said to be so powerful that not even immortals could resist it.

Tournament Rank: Gabriella, as a lady of breeding, would never engage in brutish hand-to-hand combat-- preferring instead to use magic to tie her opponents in knots. However, in her campaign against the thuggees of Kali Gabriella was a rough and tumble battle fury, draining the life of all who dared her claws. She is easily an unlimited class combatant when enraged, especially when she transforms into her namesake-- the dragon queen.

Information: The Dragon Queen of Silissia. This great elder's true name (Drakka'Tah) is known only to a few. Gabriella was born sometime during the infancy of the Silissian old world, approximately 14,000 cycles ago. She was the sole survivor when the Kali cult over-ran her village and staked out her family. Swearing vengeance, she undertook a campaign against the followers of the death goddess that lasted close to five millennia.

Early in her history, Gabriella turned to vampirism to get the strength and lifespan to continue her vendetta. Gabriella is known as the Dragon Queen because unlike typical vampires who feed on humans, her targets were typically dragons both for the amount of blood and their power. It is unknown how she gained the power to prey on dragons in such a fashion, but it surmised she gained this ability (curse?) from one of the three orbs of dragonkind.

In her later years, Gabriella had the misfortune of crossing some of the Band of the Crescent Moon. After a number of clashes, the elder was eventually captured by the combined efforts of Dorian Degaba and Cassandra Kel'Ishtauri. With the power of grand magicks, Gabriella was turned from darkness to serve the light. Regardless of her new 'outlook', Gabriella is uneasy ally of House Felspar and the regime of Isis. After her 'conversion' Gabriella shared a close bond with Dorian, and two are fast allies. Dorian, along with her daughters Cassin and Annawen, serve as Gabriella's magical apprentices.

Gabriella has four living daughters: Dominique, Gabrin, Sabella, Sarokirin. Her only son, Sarok, died in a conflict against her. Before her capture and conversion, Gabriella acted occasionally as an agent for Aarlen Frielos.

Corresont, Senalloy Moirae

Name: Corresont, Senalloy Moirae

Aliases: Sen, Alloy

Inspired by: Will Greenway

Appears in: Shaladen Chronicles: A Knot in Time, Shaladen Chronicles: Anvil of Sorrow, Shaladen Chronicles: Who Mourns the Creator, Gaea's Legacy: Eternal's Agenda, Gaea's Legacy: Savants Ascendant, Gaea's Legacy: The Infinity Annihilator

Occupation: Bodyguard

Birthplace: Unknown

Hair: Silver

Eyes: Violet

Height: 6'10"

Weight: 450 lbs

Unusual Features: Baronian's like many elder races have denser tissue than is typical for a human. Baronians have roughly double the tissue density of a normal human. As a result, Baronian strength and resistance to injury is commensurately higher. Baronian physiology is geared for battle and their endurance, reaction time, healing rate, and other combat factors are all significantly enhanced. After being set free from enslavement, Senalloy was allowed to regain the full measure of her strength and powers which easily exceeded Rakaar's both in combat and magic. This of course being the reason she was kept weakened and enslaved in the first place.

Age: 30,000+ (???)

Martial Status: Unmarried

Known Relatives: Luthice Corresont (sister)

Group Affiliations: Protectorate, Kriar Council, Malanian royal family

Magical Skills: The full extent of Senalloy's magical abilities is still as yet unknown, but she is capable of recognizing and casting the highest orders of spells. She is adept at fast-casting and can even fast-cast spells of the 5th magnitude which is typically only possible by the most powerful elders. Given these observations, she, at the very least is equal to a grand-loremage.

Tournament Rank: Senalloy does not yet attend tournaments (but she intents to in the future). The Baronian war-witch is at the very least an elder, with extensive combat experience. She has sparred with 14th circle masters and defeats them easily. This makes her an unlimited class competitor. She has sparred competitively with Dulcere Starbinder, a command rank Kriar with significant battle experience, and was able to keep up with her. This means that she fights in the "untouchable" class of elder elites such as Loric Felspar and Aarlen Frielos.

Information: Senalloy's origin and histories remain largely a mystery. As revealed in Shaladen Chronicles: A Knot In Time she is no less than five millenniums old (this is the length of time she was a slave to Rakaar). Though the actual events that led her to come into Rakaar's custody have not been revealed, it is speculated that she was given to him as a punishment. When Dulcere, and later Corim, meet Senalloy, she is horribly scarred and disfigured as a result of torture. This she explains was punishment for attempting to escape. Senalloy never alludes to Rakaar having done it, so one can only assume this punishment was received at an earlier date and merely maintained by the cruel and indifferent battle-mage.

At some point prior to her involvement with Rakaar, Senalloy came in contact with a Kriar engineer on Karanganoi homeworld. It is from this Kriar that Senalloy learns the Kriar language and attains her formidable understanding of Kriar artifices. Senalloy has demonstrated the ability to pilot shuttle, freighter, and fighter class Kriar starcraft. She has a strong working knowledge of cyber systems and self-willed mecha. She is even capable of minor repairs on these various devices.

According to Senalloy, she helped organize a Karanganoi resistance, and helped key Kriar personnel find refuge amongst the various resistance cells on Karanganoi homeworld. Presumably, it is these acts for which Senalloy is punished and enslaved.

After being freed from Rakaar by Corim, the powerful Baronian lady becomes infatuated with the young man. Her relationship with him is half teasing/half serious. The fact that Corim only has eyes for Dulcere Starbinder has kept Senalloy from making much progress. Given events that have so far transpired, Senalloy could easily win Corim too her, as the (comparatively) young man is already fond of her. So far, it has only been her debt to Dulcere that has kept her from interfering further in the relationship between the Kriar belkirin and new Shael Dal candidate.
