Llyvi Phlox


Race: Symenestra
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Birthday: 15, Spring, 495 AV
Birthplace: Kalinor

Appearance: Llyvi possesses the conventional appearance of a full-blooded Symenestra. Sickly pale skin hangs on to his lacking build, nails the colour of midnight grow from his fingers, and one might catch the glint of his long canines coated in corrosive venom if he decides to open his mouth.

He appears to be a young man with a lithe, wiry frame, handling himself with a certain self-conscious awkwardness that gives one the impression that he’s still in the process of transforming into a full-fledged man. His ivory-coloured hair is naturally tamed in a presentable manner, hanging like a mop of white atop his head. Gold, luminescent eyes peer out from under the mop, trying to look aloof and manly, but faltering and lacking self-assurance.

People tell him he can be read like an open book, and though he has to consciously make an effort to belie this, his emotions still betray him on a daily basis. You would often catch him looking absent-minded or in a dreamy reverie. The more you watch him, the more you realize that he’s just a boy.

Character Concept

Llyvi is a soft Symenestran boy who is preparing to take on his first Gleaning, to breach the safety of Kalinor and step out into the unknown.

He’s a soft-spoken soul whose goal is to lead a life of tranquility, with a wife and children, even though he knows that this is no more than an otherworldly dream. His introverted disposition and unease around females is mostly due to the consequences of falling in love and having a child. He doesn’t feel bad for being a Symenestra, but he wishes that things could be better, and his inner idealist never fails to bring him sorrow ever day.

Formal and articulate, Llyvi tries to present himself in a professional manner that would impress his father, but most that know him are aware that it’s a ruse and tease him for it. He tends to forget over time in the company of friends, and becomes more loose, outspoken, and affectionate—the opposite of himself under his father’s careful scrutiny, whereas he transforms into a bumbling, graceless, and indecisive Symenestran boy who is always dismayed by his father's lack of intimacy when they part.

He has a passion for weaving and watching Aerial Dancers soar with their long, silken swaths fluttering behind them. He seeks to better his relationship with his distant father, who never allows Llyvi to forget that the consequences of love will wound him, only adding to his unease about the Gleaning.

Character History

Llyvi was born to Dravil and Evalaya as the first, and last, child of the Phlox Web. Evalaya, a gifted weaver and teacher, was a jubilant, but stubborn, Symenestra woman who refused to have another woman bear the child that she and Dravil would bear out of love. She never hated the little Symenestra in her womb, and cradled the child to her stomach, cooing Llyvi’s name during the last, fleeting moments of her life.

Dravil, on the other hand, was torn when Evalaya passed away, and soon could not bear to properly raise Llyvi on his own, but would sooner kill himself than marry anybody else. He was a quiet and fragile man, like his son, as well as a weaver, though not as gifted as his wife had been. Soon, he couldn’t bear the weight of responsibility any longer, and by the tender age of three, Llyvi was raising himself with the aid of various, pitying Symenestra women who knew of the situation in the Phlox Web. Dravil had lost himself in the art of weaving, and though he was not abusive, the gaze that fell upon Llyvi lacked love.

Llyvi took up the art of weaving at a young age, a talented student at weaving school and adored by his teachers, but only made a handful of friends that got him through his school life due to his reclusive nature.

Llyvi, by the time he’d finished his schooling, was convinced that the only way to earn his father’s love was to become a respectable member of the Kalinor community, and, like his father, continued to hone his weaving talents. However, he’d always been more concerned about the Harvests than the rest of his peers, and the thought of watching somebody die because of him caused him to dread the day he will have to conduct a Harvest to continue the Phlox Web.

The days drag on; filled with monotonous weaving and a small social life, as the day he must leave home draws nearer . . . .

Heirloom: A silver necklace. His father had given it to him for his twelfth birthday, and is the only sign of affection he's shown to Llyvi, so Llyvi keeps the necklace clasped around his neck at all times.


Location: Kalinor

House: Permanent Homes are made from stalactites or stones that hang from the cavern ceiling. There are no glass windows, and rooms inside are separated by hanging cloth. The home is roughly 20x20 in size, pear shaped, and includes a hearth, bunk, chest, chair, and small table.

The houses in Kalinor don’t look anything like what you are used to. They aren’t square, they aren’t angular, and they don’t stand on the ground. Instead they are roughly pear shaped or shaped like a drop and hang from the ceiling. They don’t have windows, and the entrance is located at or near the very top of the house. From there a silk rope usually leads down, towards the living quarters. Symenestra homes usually don’t have a lot of rooms, but niches in the walls where the individual members of a Web store their things or sleep behind curtains. The houses are made of stalactites or stones, and they are connected to each other by thick cords of silk.
