Name: Jaelis
Race: Kelvic (Ta'rukahl)
DoB: 519 A.V. (3 y.o.)
PoB: Falyndar
Title: Jungle Protector
Skills: Wilderness Survival 77, Hunting 67, Unarmed Combat 62, Tracking 55, Native Flute 50, Singing 35, Gardening 61
Gnosis: 1 Mark Leth, 1 Mark Nysel, 1 Mark Unknown (Claw Slash)
Additional Info:

Jaelis grew up the child of The Svefra under the glorious light of Leth off the tropical shores of Falyndar. He sought his place in the world, lost and wandering, as soon as he was old enough to leave his non-Kelvic parents and their pod. He grew fast, taught by his father and mother, and then by life itself. He learned how to survive in the jungle, hunt, track, and use weapons humans use.

Jaelis is drawn to other birds, searching for the wild rarity of his own kind. His Moon Eagle form is fiercely protective and watchful. Like all of his kind, he has excellent night vision and has a glowing quality to his plumage and a luminous quality to his pale human skin. Frequently sought out by those wishing to find and export the exotic, Jaelis avoids strangers in Falyndar, but still has an incredible need to seek out the company of humans, driven as all Kelvics are, to find a bondmate.

Captured at the very end of the Summer in 522 by foreign invaders in the jungle, the Moon Eagle was released by a stranger who snuck into the invader's camp and set prisoners free. Stalking that same stranger, Jaelis discovered Syka in the Fall of 522.

His story is still unfolding.

Kamilla's Abode


Located South of the Syka Commons in a mountain wedged between Treasure Point and Stairstep Falls is Kamilla's home. The cave like entrance can be found by simply following the Cobbled Pathway south until one comes across a neatly carved out oval shaped opening into the small mountain. If one were to peer inside, they'd see a simple staircase leading upward and deeper into the mountain.

Carved out of the mountain with the use of reimancy, Kamilla's home can be found at the top of the stone staircase, where the tunnel opens up into a large dome like cave covered in smooth stone. There is no wall on the opposite end of the cave, instead, what seems to be a shimmering veil separates the inner part of the cave from the patio, which overlooks a good portion of the jungle and Stairstep Falls to the south, while the Treasure Point and the Suvan Sea can be seen to the east and finally, Syka can be seen in the distance to the north. A few simple seats and a table can be found here with two monoliths with holes in the centres on the left most part of the patio railing, shrines to her mother and gran. In the right corner is a small growing lemon tree.

Coming from the staircase, inside the cave is the large main hall where a bed and large chest of drawers can be found against the right wall, while on the immediate left is a door leading to a small storage room. The left half of the large room contains seats and a dining table with a small brazier in the center, as well as some counters. A single stone column, hollowed out and used as a fireplace, obstructs the otherwise panoramic view on the opposite end of the cave just within the protective shimmering barrier.

Because of the stone walls it is almost always pleasantly cool, in comparison to outdoors, within the cave, unless there's a fire going, though during times like these Kamilla usually lowers the shimmering veil to allow the air to flow freely through her home.

While the entire area is very simplistic and bare bones, it suits the mage's tastes just fine. The modest home has some charm to it, it is spacious and uncluttered and when things are quiet, the sounds of the nearby falls can be heard as well as that of a small stream running along part of the mountain. Her claim stretches from the beach and back into the jungle.

Name: Jehu of The Kalanue Tribe
Race:Chaktawe
DoB:81st, Fall 493AV
PoB: Eyktol
Title:Hunter, Ranger
Skills: 72 Hunting, 65 Spear, 54 WS(Desert, Jungle), Endurance 50, Construction 30...
Gnosis: n/a
Additional Info: Speaks Tawna, Common and Arumenic(Poor)

The failure to gain a guardian during his Searching as a teenager haunts Jehu into his adult life. His family and tribe looked upon him differently, some with pity, some with suspicion. Finally, urged by the word he received from Eywaat during his Searching, Jehu departed, into the desert and beyond, to find answers, eventually finding himself in Syka.

Known to Syka as the stoic desert man, Jehu values action and is always happy to assist where he can, whether it be with ranger duties or survival training... He is fiercely loyal and protective of those he calls friends and threatening them is one of the few ways to make him lose his temper.

He hopes to one day find his purpose and earn his Guardian.

Nyle

Image
Name: Nyle Solarian Kois
Race: Benshira
DoB: Spring 10, 490 A.V. (33)
PoB: Gold Lake - The Quas of The Kois
Title: Warrior of the Kois
Skills: Unarmed Combat 85, Wilderness Survival (Desert) 76, Longsword 65, Whip 60, Dagger 55, Meditation 70, Reimancy 45 (Earth, Fire), Flux 60, Shielding 52, Morphing 40, Lute 40, Riding (horse) 60, Dancing 50, Magecraft 35, Dominion 57, Hunting 35, Psychology 44, Philosophy 78, Logic 38, etc.
Gnosis: 1 Mark Akajia, 1 Mark Akvin, 1 Mark Xhyves
Additional Info:

Nyle has always held a high-ranking position in the Kois Clan. He's been an advisor to Florentine Aradicus - Leader of the Kois Clan, who also allowed him to marry Kamrae Aradicus Kois. They have no children. Nyle is the fraternal twin of Lira Solarian Kois - one of the rare female Kelvics of the Kois Clan. Lira takes the shape of a golden eagle.

Nyle is a reserved man who holds a lot of his thoughts and feelings inside. Inherently a decent person, he has a lot of skills to bring to the table in the fact that he was blessed abundantly with a deep-abiding djedpool (like most of the Kois Clan) and has trained extensively in combat.

In the Fall of 522, he partook in a plot by Florentine Arcadius - whose body houses an ancient evil entity known as Sran'Tuka - in order to protect what remained of his shattered clan. He assisted in the confinement of his wife's twin sister - Tazrae - and at Aradicus' request - got her with child. Since the captive born twins and escaped the same day as her delivery, Nyle rescued his newborn son and parted ways with his clan. He's been searching for the child's mother and his own lost wife. His wife, often sent on a mission by Aradicus, had been 'lost' on an expedition to Falyndar.

This gave Nyle a place to start looking... Falyndar. And when he heard about the new Settlement there, he headed in that direction with his son and a hired wetnurse. Coming to Syka in the Summer of 523 finally, he found not only his lost wife, her twin sister, and his lost infant daughter. It was a strange reunion, and an awkward one with a new oddly structured family.



Lira

Image
Name: Lira Solarian Kois
Race: Kelvic Golden Eagle (Benshira)
DoB: Spring 10, 490 A.V. (33)
PoB: Gold Lake - The Quas of The Kois
Title: Hunter, Tracker, and Scholar of the Kois
Skills: Hunting 89, Tracking 82, Wilderness Survival (Desert) 76, Dagger 65, Shortbow 70, Dancing 60, Morphing 77, Archanology 55, Anthropology 53, Archaeology 45, History 79, Research 55, Singing 36
Gnosis: 1 Mark Qalaya, 1 Mark Akvin, 1 Mark Xhyves
Additional Info:

Lira was born a twin, younger by two minutes, and inferior in so many ways for being female and then growing faster and larger than her brother. It was evident from a very early age that the pair were not the same, even though they were born of the same mother on the same day. Lira was the result of a long recessive Kelvic gene that cropped up in her Solarian bloodline. Nyle, free of the Kelvic curse, enjoyed the comfort of growing to maturity under the loving protection of a younger sister that aged at twice his rate.

Fortunately for both children, a high-level mage was able to slow Lira's aging to almost nothing through the use of an artifact called Alizarin's Regalia. Nearly ageless, Lira has halted her growth physically around age 22, though her brother continues to age and is expected to die long before her if they both don't fall into an accident before time's bite takes them from the world.

Lira is overly protective of Nyle and they enjoy a good relationship between the two. They are bonded, much like any twins, though Nyle enjoys a Kelvic bond with Lira that keeps the pair together. When Nyle married Kamara, that protectiveness and comradery opened to include the Kois Grandauther as well.


Zarisha

Image
Name: Zarisha Solarian Kois - Zari
Race: Inarta
DoB: Spring 10, 506 A.V. (17)
PoB: Wind Reach
Title: Wetnurse, Childkeeper, Teacher
Skills: Childcare 55, Teaching 45, Cooking 35, Sitar 25, Hostessing 45, Storytelling 33, Drawing 35, Sewing 40, Ceramics 30, Glassblowing 23
Gnosis: 1 Mark Ivak
Additional Info:

Zarisha is a story of tragedy. Purchased at auction by a Solarian Kois, the man then married Zarisha and got her with child when she was 16. Her husband was slain by Sran'Tuka in an act of defiance, leaving Zarisha a widow before her first children were born. Zarisha is small and delicate so when she gave birth to a very large little boy shortly before Nyle's children were born, there were complications. The infant died, and Zarisha was left basically on her own until Nyle and Lira took her in. She was thus able to act as a wet nurse and babysitter for Nyle when Kaysen came along.

Zarisha was originally from Wind Reach, but traveled from her home to go out in the world to shed her Dek status. She had no idea she'd fall prey to slavers and end up in an Eyktol slave market. She had no particular fondness for her husband, but he did treat her kindly for the most part. For a girl from a world of starvation, the fact that he allowed her to eat and there was always abundant food was good enough for her to be satisfied with her current situation.

When Nyle decided to look for his lost wife and the mother of his children, Zarisha came with him to care for little Kaysen.

Postby Valentina Adair on June 30th, 2023, 3:08 am

Image
Name: Brego
Race: Human, Drykas
DoB: Fall 497
PoB: The Sea of Grass
Title: Sailor
Skills: Sailing 50, athletics 45, story telling 40, singing 30, Axe 30, ridding 25, wilderness survival 25
Gnosis: none


Additional Info:

Brego is one of Captain James’s sailors aboard the Veronica. While not all the crew know exactly what pushed him to leave the Sea of Grass. Rumor has it was due to a very messy wedding situation. But he generaly keeps his personal life more secret to the rest of the crew. Said crew which he works on, when he signed onto his first ship it was solely as a strong sailor willing to move cargo and sails.

Like most he was drawn to Syka while looking for a place to settle down. He talks loudly about having dreams of starting a family. As well as often breaking into song and story. Telling sailors on a moon lit night the variouis myths of glassbeaks from the plains. He can often be found making the trip to and from Riverfall with the rest of the crew of the Veronica.

Brego was awarded his wind marks and will talk openly about them if asked, though tells little, but states it is a constant source of shame for him if pushed by a close confidant. It does however provide a touchstone back to his home.

Abbas
Image
Name: Abbas Timari Kois
Race: Benshira
DoB: 458 A.V. (65)
PoB: Gold Lake - The Quas of the Kois.
Title: Reknowned Horse Breeder, Swordsman, Musician, Timari Patriarc
Skills: Animal Husbandry 85, Riding (Horse) 80, Scimitar 75, Play Musical Instrument (Oud) 65, Play Musical Instrument ( Rabab) 60, Play Musical Instrument (Drum) 55, Singing 60, Planning 45, Strategy 40, Medicine 35
Gnosis: None Revealed

Additional Info:

Abbas grew up as if in a dream. The dream was strength, security, peace, and living among one of the most affluent and thriving tribes of the Benshira. He had the good fortune to be born to the Timari, some of the most renowned horse breeders in the world. His families horses were some of the best desertbred known to Mizahar. He learned the art of bloodlines, pairings, and training at the side of multiple generations of Timari Kois. It was his branch of the Kois that formed one of the cornerstones of the tribe. Horses in the desert equaled wealth and the ability to move fast, far, and smoothly.

Abbas grew to adulthood and then became one of the tribal leaders ruling his particular branch. He was tried and tested on the battlefield and a council member who advised Florentin Arcadius, the ruler of the Kois.

In the later years, their branch fell to disfavor as the Leadership of the Kois was compromised by an ancient foe who latched on to Florentin's form and crawled inside him like a parasite. Shortly thereafter, Sran’tuka began pulling the puppet strings of the entire Benshira clan. Standing up against the compromised leadership earned most of the Timari exile from not only Gold Lake but Eyktol itself. Aging, and falling into hard times, the Addas and his wife Amira fled Eyktol. And upon their exodus from Eyktol, they fell prey to slavers.

They ended up in the markets of The Outpost via Syliras' Dovecote.

Later, purchased by a Sykan Resident, Abbas, his wife Amira, and his son Nasir as a family unit were arranged to be delivered to Captain James of the Veronica where he would take them to Syka and too their freedom. Many of his children and grandchildren are still missing.


 
Amira
Image
Name: Amira Timari Kois
Race: Benshira
DoB: 471 A.V. (52)
PoB: Gold Lake - The Quas of the Kois.
Title: Assistant Innkeeper, Musician, Cook, Babysitter
Skills: Hostessing 75, Childcare 55, Teaching 45, Cooking 65, Play Musical Instrument (Quanoon) 45, Play Musical Instrument (Ney) 35, Play Musical Instrument (Riq) 50, Singing 27, Storytelling 33, Riding (Horse) 45, Animal Husbandry 35, Medicine 30, Cleaning 35, Sewing 40
Gnosis: None Revealed

Additional Info:

Amira spent her life in Gold Lake supporting her tribew and working diligently among the Timari branch of the Kois. When she was 16, she married Abbas and found love within that bond. Amira spent her life being a homemaker, a songstress, musician, an upstanding leader of her household, and bore Abbas multiple children. Of the eight, most stayed in or nearby. Abbas was a breeder of fine horses and a high caliber warrior, so they never lacked in perstige or for coin.

In the later years, their branch fell to disfavor as the Leadership of the Kois was compromised. Standing up against the compromised leadership earned them exile from not only Gold Lake but Eyktol itself. Aging, falling into hard times, the couple fled Eyktol and upon their exodus from Eyktol fell prey to slavers.

They ended up in the markets of The Outpost via Syliras' Dovecote.

Later, purchased by a Sykan Resident, Amira, her husband Abbas, and her son Nasir as a family unit were arranged to be delivered to Captain James of the Veronica where he would take them to Syka and too their freedom. Many of her children and grandchildren are still missing.


 
Nasir
Image
Name: Nasir Timari Kois
Race: Benshira
DoB: 493 A.V. (30)
PoB: Gold Lake - The Quas of the Kois.
Title: Storm Warden, Horse Breeder, Warrior
Skills: Animal Husbandry 65, Riding (Horse) 70, Horse Bow 75, Play Musical Instrument (Guitar/Sintir) 65, Play Musical Instrument (Mizmar) 60, Play Musical Instrument (Bendir) 35, Singing 50, Planning 45, Strategy 40, Meterology 55, Dagger 65, Saber 65
Gnosis: 2 Marks Zulrav

Additional Info:

Nasir was born with a mark of Zulrav on the back of his neck. Later, another appeared in his early teens. His father always said he was born among the horses with a storm in his heart and the blood of the Timari Kois flowing through his blood. He took an early interest in meteorology, the sky, and how weather behaved.

Though he followed neatly in his father's footsteps, Nasir also forged his own pathway in many ways. He learned the family business of breeding and raising horses. He became an excellent trainer and warrior among his people. One need not have the finest horses in the desert unless one can defend them.

Nasir enjoyed many years thriving among his people. He married young, often, and sired multiple children from numerous wives in his early twenties. As he approached his thirties, his luck changed. As the situation with the Kois became increasingly dangerous for the tribesman, Nasir lost wife after wife and multiple children to misfortune that seemed somewhat staged in order to get his family to fall in line.

In the later years, their branch fell to disfavor as the Leadership of the Kois was compromised. Standing up against the compromised leadership earned them exile from not only Gold Lake but Eyktol itself. Aging, and falling into hard times, his parents fled Eyktol and upon their exodus from Eyktol fell prey to slavers. Most of his branch followed and lost their lives, including Nasir's remaining wife and children. As a sort of revenge, he followed and vowed to kill everyone responsible for his family's death. But first, he went to rescue his parents. The move cost him his freedom and he ended up enslaved along side them. The whole of the Timari lost their lives, and the three sole survivors ended up in the markets of The Outpost via Syliras' Dovecote.

Later, purchased by a Sykan Resident, Nasir, along with his parents Abbas and Amira, as a family unit were arranged to be delivered to Captain James of the Veronica where he would take them to Syka and to their freedom. Many of his siblings and their children are still missing.
