Physical Traits

Blue skin, and silvery blue hair. Standing 6ft 4, and 180 Pounds, Kaladis has a slender, muscular build, like many of his race, but with shorter fingers than most Eidisi, though his feet and legs show the elongated physique his race is known for. An attractive enough face for some, for others his void white eyes make many unused to Eidisi uncomfortable. Conversely against the stereotypical assumption of blindness, his eyes are very sharp, making up for his hearing being somewhat impaired. His poor hearing makes the accurate pronunciation of languages, that his race is often gifted with understanding, difficult, and has been the butt of more than one snide comment from his kin. Kaladis isn’t deaf, but he cannot accurately make out the distance a sound is at either, relying on his sharpened eyesight to do this for him, leaving him at a disadvantage in darkness, crowds or at tasks that require fine physical balance.
Personality

Proud, Curious, Attention to Detail, Inquisitive, Intelligent, Industrious. *The first hints of nobility.
Dismissive to Contradictions, Closed Emotionally, Scheming, Paranoid, Zealous.
Loves: Religious Ceremony, Sweet Fruits, Arcane Studies, Secrets, Sculpting, Mining, Smithing, most especially Toolmaking.
Hates: Being forced into an oath, will stick to his word no matter what. Being outnumbered. Surprises or Uncertainty.
Pre Thread History

Family and Childhood.


One of three siblings, Kaladis was raised in a strict, orderly household; by his father, Beladis, a gifted arcanist and researcher, and his mother, a talented scribe. They ran a small but successful alchemists shop between them, while his father proudly did odd jobs for the local Viden Academy, which he often reminded his children about. Children he initiated into Abrogation at a relatively young age, guiding them through techniques that they could use to protect themselves in day to day life. Though he was often standoffish, and dismissive of anyone but his own opinion, he did dote on his children, reminding them of this fact at every opportunity, especially when they contradicted him! His mother, Kalia, was more caring, though retained the often icy demeanour of her race, she was more maternal towards her children, perhaps if only to contrast Kaladis’s fathers mood swings, which more than a few times became violent, but were often loud regardless.

Kaladis’s younger sister and brother all followed much the same path as him, laid out carefully by their parents, with little room for personal requests with what to study or train in. It wasn’t until they were reaching maturity, 25 arcs for an Eidisi, that the Anar siblings began to have much say in their life at all, being home schooled as was tradition. Kaladis being the oldest, felt he had something to prove in intellectual pursuits, and resented his father’s insistence that they specialise into either written research, linguistics, alchemy or abrogation. He was much more apt with his hands, liking the feel of metal, perhaps due to his shorter fingers than most of his race. There was something satisfying about working with metal or stone, though most of his early creations were tools not weapons, it began to drive a wedge between him and his father’s designs for his life nonetheless.

Rarely spoken of in the house directly, the older Kaladis got the more distant from life he became, taking on the dismissive qualities of his father, in part to protect himself from the constant judgements in his ear, and in part because it gave him a stronger will. A stubbornness developed in him, a desire to succeed despite the negativity he faced, it gave him a strong will to see things done, but also closed off opportunities or the council of others, even those close to him.

In his household, two immortals were worshipped. Audrae and Vhalar. Audrae for unveiling the secrets in his father’s research and alchemy, and Vhalar to be true to your word. For his mother and father these were practical choices, for Kaladis they became more personal. As a child he was long fascinated by the dynamics of oaths and secrecy intertwined, of deception, the shadows spoken through art and song. Song he’d never sing clearly himself, given his problems vocalising tones, perhaps all the more reason for his fascination.

The Rift and Choice.


Though his mother often defended him against his father Beladis, even when there was nothing to defend, Kaladis had moved out at the age of 26, before adulthood for his race. Being free from the shackles of his parents, something many young people feel relief over, he found himself celebrating with a wide variety of intellectual games, challenges, and tasks. At first his life was simple but free, he had many friends and opportunities for intellectual advancement. Puzzles, finding out the secret answers, like he imagined Audrae would favor, were his favorite forte. None greater than when he was tasked by a friend, to dig into a mountainside, one that everyone had told him was impossible. To dig into shadows and darkness, facing fear, he believed he could beat it with planning and forethought. Warned against it, told not to go, the caverns were full of previous collapses and failed attempts, but held rare metals for the taking, wealth he needed to start his new life. Kaladis was no structural engineer, but he did gain the help of one, personally mining his way to the fabled reward inside the cavern depths. Five Eidisi set out that day, and as they methodically reached their goal, what was supposed to pay to start their lives, an eruption from underneath them caused a collapse. Something all their arrogance and planning couldn’t have predicted, an unnatural event that he has yet to get to the bottom off, or forget.

Thick black smoke plumed upwards, almost suffocating them. For three hours they struggled for breath, and to dig their way free. One miner died, and one would never walk again. The other three suvivors were held to account for their reckless actions, more so because the crippled Eidisi was a noble, which nobody walking out of there was ever allowed to forget or live down. Sadly that wasn’t what gave Kaladis nightmares, or changed his life the most. Hushed, hidden from the investigation that followed, and something nobody there had wanted to admit: a hidden necromancer revealed himself among the group, trying in vain to revive the dead man, and set the broken spine of the injured miner. It was then Kaladis had his first taste of what might be possible, when the body of his dead friend arose, to save those that were left from falling rubble.

The Choice


Work was hard to come by after that ill-fated expedition, for all the survivors. It was perhaps because he never lived it down, or perhaps because his father turning up to his door day after day to remind him of how much he had failed, that Kaladis’s mind began to look for alternatives, ways out of his situation. Even his mother looked at him differently, his brother and sister still spoke to him, but he always thought they were being polite rather than wanting to.

Down on his luck, and becoming more reclusive by the day, he’d apprenticed for a local blacksmith, who paid him a pittance, far less than even a regular apprentice due to his reputation. One day Kaladis had enough living in his one room shack, feeling the judgements of those around him, living off scraps, and what he could get second hand from the two friends he still had left. Seeking out his old friend the necromancer, he learned the art, they still shared that one miserable but unmistakable bond from the accident, and he found help, even kinship there. Not long after his initiation, in one furious exchange of words, his parents were made aware of his choice. Say what you want about his family, they were always honest, true to Vhalar in their oaths and word. Proudly telling his father that he no longer needed or cared for his approval to live his life, and that this was living proof Kaladis was his own man. They disowned him, and only his mother's plea managed to convince his father not to have him thrown in the stockade for practicing necromancy, by making Kaladis leave Viden and swear an oath to Vhalar.

To never to raise the dead of a fallen mortal.

Though Kaladis was quick to add, unless there was no other choice. Which did not sit well with his parents, but then none of this did. They too, both swore to Vhalar that they would not reveal why Kaladis had left, or of his initiation, only that he had left. Most believed he left because of the noble’s death, with others glad to see the back of him, though the vast majority had forgotten he existed by that point.

Ralari - Major Personal NPC

Name: Ralari Natonias
Race: Eidisi
Date of Birth: 41st Day of Ymiden, 661
Profession: Arcane Researcher
Skills:
Necromancy: 40 | Practical Necromancer
Defiance: 30 | Kin Element Water
Intelligence: 20
Research: 15
Meditation: 5
Languages: Ancient Language, Fluent | Common Language, Fluent | Umaya, Broken
*Language Update Requested Here

Appearance:
6ft Tall, long slender arms and legs, a thin build with sharp cheekbones and an angular face. Having dark blue hair, and white eyes as with most of his race. Ralari's skin color is a more grey blue color than that of his race, the first Necromatic mutation he has suffered. His left arm is cold to the touch, showing Defiance’s first elemental mutation, mixing with that of the Necromatic alterations beginning within him.

Personality:
Ralari is a bookworm. He loves spending his time knee deep in research material, especially matters arcane, myths, spirits, ritual, legends, artifacts, the immortals and unexplained phenomena are all his domain. Undeniably a man who loves to position himself to have others, dead or living, fight for him, merely to secure his own interests. Ralari doesn’t have any interest in manipulating or directing events beyond self-preservation, and acquiring knowledge, preferring to spend his time furthering his studies in quiet, or with his lifelong friend Kaladis doing the same. He will defend himself, his friends, or his work when it is threatened, but otherwise keeps to himself. Ralari is known to like his wine, and fine art, but not to excess. He is also known to carry some of the superior attitude Eidisi sometimes have towards other races, especially in regards to their art and clothing. The man is also a fan of partaking in festivities when possible.

Relationship to PC:
Old Friend, Arcane Mentor, and Kaladis’s initiator into Necromancy. One of the four to survive the cave in at Viden and their mutual pariahdom that followed. The two have a strong bond from their friendship, and their arcane connection. Their need to stick together after the accident which marked them as outcasts has brought them closer.

Thread History
From what he calls a long distinguished line of necromancers, Ralari is currently working with Kaladis and the Makers to translate ancient texts in Nashaki. He is also aiding Kaladis to construct an enclave and safe haven in the Hotlands, for the safe and private study of matters arcane, and trains his student when possible.

Alaya - Major Personal NPC
Name: Alaya Qy'Ihadi
Race: Biqaj
Date of Birth: 23rd Day of Vhalar, 690
Profession: Aurora, Junior Assassin
Skills:
Stealth: 30
Blades: 30
Endurance: 30
Mirage: 10
Languages: Common Fluent | Rakahi Fluent

Appearance:
Green shifting to blue eyes, a short button nose and soft skin. Alaya is pretty in a girl next door kind of way, but you'd rarely ever see it as she keeps her face covered at all times. At 5ft 8 Alaya's is a cross between a thin and athletic build, having long auburn hair and usually tanned olive skin if she's out in the sun, becoming more pale in the northern climates. Usually wearing some array of knives and flexible armor, she sometimes wears heavier but doesn't enjoy it.

Personality:
Alaya is a snake in the grass. She's subtle, deadly, and loves to play games with people. Often times she will disappear from a conversation before you’ve finished talking, or drop in on you unannounced from any direction, even above. Her size and temperament made her an idea recruit for the Aurora's less visible contracts, rising up from slave to become a Junior Assassin among their number. She kills without remorse, having a strong grudge for betrayal against her as that is what got her enslaved in the first place, someone she trusted leaving her with a debt she couldn't pay and running off. Once part of the Qy'Ihadi, or clan of dreamers, now her dreams and motivations are entirely self-serving. She will never be without coin again, financial ruin scares her to death, while financial elevation is her strongest motivation. Most notably Alaya has a strong fascination for short blades and knives, collecting them as she goes about her travels. Alaya also enjoys puzzles, investigations, and has an impatience for being kept waiting around when there is a task to be done.

Relationship to PC:
Currently one of their contacts with the Aurora, Alaya might go rogue, or she might not. Either way she is frequently turning up in Kaladis's plots as someone to help him, then more importantly help herself! She's noticed he might be able to help bring her wealth, and so she is following that angle for now. There might well be more loyalty between them born over time, but that will be down to the plotline.
