Crowninshield, Elsbeth Dalia

Name: Crowninshield, Elsbeth Dalia

Aliases: Counsel Crowninshield, The Scarlet Mage

Inspired by: Kaye Boardman

Appears in: Shaladen Chronicles: A Knot In Time, Shaladen Chronicles: Anvil of Sorrow, Shaladen Chronicles: Who Mourns the Creator, Gaea's Blood, Gaea's Legacy

Occupation: Government Leader (Judiciary Counsel of the 27th Magocracy of the Ring Realms), Mage for Hire, Protectorate Enforcer

Birthplace: The Belostari Colony, bordering the 4th Alliance territories

Hair: Red (Polychromatic)

Eyes: Blue

Height: 5'4"

Weight: 130

Unusual Features: Elsbeth is constantly under the influence of magics which manipulate the light around her. No matter what the visual conditions are, the illumination always reveals her in the "best light". Elsbeth's red hair shimmers and changes under brightly lit conditions the hue darkening or lightening with her mood. Elsbeth's mastery of magic enables her to change her shape at any time. Though she has had the Shaladen Starwind within her possession for many years, the permanent effects caused the augmenting energies within the weapon have not affected her. So, unlike other the other members of the Shael Dal, she does not have increased density.

Age: approx 40,000

Martial Status: Separated.

Known Relatives: Too numerous to list. All of Elsbeth's immediate children are no longer alive. However more than 40 generations of sucessors live on. Descendents of her blood number in millions.

Group Affiliations: Protectorate Enforcement, 27th Magocracy of the Ring Realms, Counsel of Isis, House Felspar, House Ishtarvariku

Magical Skills: Elsbeth is an elder elite with magical skills far in excess of a grand lore-mage. Her magic is unquestionably among the strongest in all of the Ring Realms. Only the Eternals, Jyril, and a handful of elders and ancients have skills any more sophisticated. Elsbeth's specialty is mind control (charms), but she has also developed an extremely complete arsenal of magic specifically designed for destroying technology and/or hindering its operation.

Tournament Rank: Elsbeth does not engage in physical combat, and its been millenniums since it was necessary. Under duress, she trains with the rest of Shael Dal-- she recently started a tutelage with Beia Targallae after having been thrashed by another elder who was immune to magic. She is in training to get a rematch. Currently she would be considered to have 4th Rank combat skills. In terms of battle capabilities, there are few creatures in the Realms that can withstand even one of her battle spells.

Information: Prime Counsel of the 27th Magiocracy of the Ring Realms. Elsbeth is one the two acknowledged living members of the elder elite. Elsbeth is the long-time foe of Aarlen Frielos, and the primary head of an isolationist movement that is fighting to keep magic and technology seperate. Elsbeth joined the Shael Dal shortly after Koass made the decision to allow Aarlen Frielos work off her debt to society within the ranks of the Protectorate. Elsbeth claims she entered the Shael Dal in order to maintain certain standards, but its most likely she wants to keep an eye on her hated enemy. If Aarlen is caught in a breech of
probation, it is likely Elsbeth with be there to make sure Koass knows. Elsbeth has the ability to time dive but her
skills are quite a bit less refined.

Exact details are sketchy, but Esbeth's millenniums long feud with Aarlen is rumored to originate with the razing of one of the four core Ring Realms planets (presumably Elsbeth's birthplace). The planet was subjected to a bombing that infected the inhabitants with a crippling
disease. If this is indeed the case, it would also explain Elsbeth's hatred of technology. There is some support for this story because it is rumored that in Elsbeth's earlier days before she could alter her shape, she was both crippled and disfigured. The truth of this matter may never come to light as Elsbeth does not speak of her past but in generalities. As with Aarlen, Elsbeth's exact
age is difficult to pin-point, but it is surmised she is about four to five millennia younger than Aarlen hence the difference in their powers and abilities.

D'Tarin, Algernon

Name: D'Tarin, Algernon

Hair: Brown

Eyes: Blue

Height: 6'0" [6'3"]

Weight: 400 [2000]

Unusual Features: Like the other members of the Protectorate Algernon's body is denser than a normal human's. Wielding the Shaladen Warstar and as the Avatar of the Eternal Garn, Algernon can increase his mass and strength to far greater levels than any of the other members. He can raise his strength to the point that he can easily lift over ten tons, and can deform high grade steel with his hands.

Known Relatives: Wife (Angella), Daughter (Valsiden)

Group Affiliations: The Protectorate, The Band of the Crescent Moon, The Falorian Warrior's Academy, House Felspar, The Barony of Eastern Ivaneth, House Tradeholme, The House of Ivaneth Lords.

Magical Skills: Algernon possesses some minor wilderness related magic that is a product of his training as a ranger.

Tournament Rank: Algernon does not regularly participate in tournament play. He does however participate in the Frielos-held "Hunter's Game" which is a combination of combat, stealth, and strategy. Algernon has extensive combat experience, and has been a part of several war campaigns and adventures. Even without the enhancements of his Shaladen blade he is a 14th rank warrior.

Information: Algernon is a second generation member of the Band of the Crescent Moon. He is one of the Band who elected to remain involved in Ivaneth affairs. He currently holds the titles of Lord and Baron, and is the active guardian of the Ivaneth's Northeastern border. Algernon and Talorin Falor are drinking buddies and team members for the Shael Dal. They play together quite successfully for the Frielos Hunt.

De'Falcone, Irodee

Name: De'Falcone, Irodee

Aliases: Treetop

Inspired by: Will Greenway

Appears in: Savant's Blood, Aesir's Blood, Gaea's Blood, Shaladen Chronicles: A Knot in Time, Shaladen Chronicles: Who Mourns the Creator, Reality's Plaything, 'Neath Odin's Eye, Gaea's Legacy

Occupation: Professional Adventurer

Birthplace: Jhandris Kul

Hair: Black

Eyes: Brown

Height: 7'5"

Weight: 325

Unusual Features: Irodee De'Falcone is one of the biggest Myrigynes ever born to the Jhandris'Kul clan of Myrmigynes

Age: 28

Martial Status: Married

Known Relatives: Ess Targallae (adoptive mother), Liandra Kergatha (clan sister), Laramis De'Falcone (Husband), Marta De'Falcone

Group Affiliations: The Jhandris'Kul Myrmigyne Clan, The house of Idun, the Brethren Guild of Ivaneth.

Magical Skills: Irodee possesses no magical skills per se. She however has the bard's talent for reading magical scrolls. She also knows the Nethra granted weapons charms that are taught to blooded warriors who particularly distinguish themselves in battle and deed.

Tournament Rank: As a Myrmigyne of the clans Irodee participates in tournament style combat on a regular basis. Her experience as a tournament warrior biases her 12th rank standing. Bias aside, she is a formidable warrior, and a devastating opponent not at all disadvantaged by her size.

Information: Myrmigyne of Jhandris'Kul clan, follower of Nethra, and wife of Laramis De'Falcone. Her maiden name is Irodee Ki'Targallae. In Myrmigyne, the Ki suffix before the proper name means adopted sister. Irodee is a long time friend of Wren Kergatha. Irodee is the biggest woman ever born among the clans, measuring just a hair under 22 hands tall and weighing almost 17 stone she is nothing short of imposing. Irodee's natural mother died when the girl was still young, thus she spent a most of her youth in the care of various foster mothers. Gawky and clumsy because of her quick growth, she found growing up in the clans difficult first because of her inability to compete with her sisters then later because of her size. Ess Targallae, the sister of Myrmigyne Queen, adopted Irodee when she was early into her teens after the girl proved her bravery and commitment to the clan. As the prot&eacute;g&eacute; of the Queen's sister, Irodee learned quickly and developed into a skilled warrior. In addition to being one of foremost warriors in the clan, Ess Targallae is one of the best educated. She tutored Irodee and eventually sent the girl to the best schools in Malan and Ivaneth. It was while in the schools that Irodee truly flourished. She became a favorite amongst the teachers, a gentle giant with a caring disposition and a thirst for knowledge. She graduated with honors from two universities, and holds advanced certificates in language and history. She speaks six languages fluently: Myrmigyne, common, sea trade, both the Elf High Tongue and Dikeeni, and Dwarven. While she is highly intelligent, Irodee is somewhat uncomfortable in letting it show. She prefers instead to play "dumb" and often speaks in broken fragments like a barbarian. After marrying Laramis she confused many of her friends in the way she only showed her mastery of language to her husband. When not in his presence she lapses back to her fragmented speech patterns. Shortly after the birth of their daughter, Irodee accepted the ki'succorund (voluntary avatarism) for Ukko.

Diliaysus, Chrysandil Lathaan

Name: Diliaysus, Chrysandil Lathaan

Aliases: Quasar, Tarkath Quasar, Tarkath Diliaysus

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: Mercenary

Birthplace: Mutara section, 1st gen Fabrista Homeworld

Hair: Black

Eyes: Green (Luminescent)

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 400 lbs

Unusual Features: Quasar has the unusual gold dermus associated with Kriar. She also has the matrix implants typical of Kriar warriors. Quasar has extensive matrix enhancements which dot the left side of her face and left arm.

Age: 8 million cycles (approx)

Martial Status: Married (Eclipse Shargris) [seperated]

Known Relatives: None

Group Affiliations: Sabre Legion Elite, Kriar High Council, Protectorate, Clan Felspar, Clan Frielos

Magical Skills: None

Tournament Rank: Quasar does not participate in tournament play. However, her eons of battle experience rank her with the most powerful warriors in the Ring Realms. Only a few creatures (such as the Eternals) or another high ranking Kriar (like Eclipse) could stand against her for more than a short time. Quasar is highly decorated warrior noted for her tenacity and brilliance in adverse conditions.

Information: Tarkath Diliaysus is a Kriar war veteran going back to the 3rd generation of Kriar after Fabrista Homeworld left the Kriar home star. She took the alias Quasar (her piloting callsign) early in her military career and has used that in place of her real name ever since. Quasar's military service is long and distinguished and she has been decorated many times for bravery and ingenuity in battle. As a commander she was particularly well known for her 'least damage' humanitarian initiatives. As time went on and power and policies shifted in the ruling dastas, Quasar turned bitter and angry, a once idealistic and noble officer lost respect for the governing body and in many ways lost faith in the race itself. Quasar had sacrificed much to become the best possible soldier in the defense of the Fabrista and all of her pleas for sanity were arrogantly disregarded. She fought a losing war against the Jyril and she along with the rest of the Kriar folk were made sterile through a form of 'curse' that resisted all technical means of reversal.

Even after the Jyril war, dasta Daergon had learned little from their mistakes and the people were suffering for it. Quasar felt that the 'sheep' that continued to allow themselves to be led by fools deserved their fate. Quasar resigned her active commission to work in the private sector. She did odd jobs as civilian transport pilot, as a detective, and spent some time in research and development working with Eladrazelle Delarn. Many of Quasar's sophisticated matrix enhancements are one-of-kind prototypes created by Eladrazelle.

Quasar's skills as a time diver and as an agent of the military internal affairs eventually pointed her in the direction of hiring out as temporal consultant, body guard, doing private investigation and bounty hunting. In her later years, her reputation and respect for life worsened and she became known also as an assassin for hire.

Quasar's relationship with Eclipse Shargris is nearly as long and complex as her relationship with the dastas. The two of them came up through the ranks together and were literally the last warriors standing in three major battles. The two of them have been witness to more Kriar deaths than all the other living Kriar officers currently serving the ruling dasta.
