The Directorate
Moderator's Note: These NPCs may only be moderated by a Prophet (unless special permission is granted by Whisper).

Eneli Vielus

Race: Eídisi
Age: 118 Arcs
Title: Máthisi
Blessings:
Skills: Leadership - Expert
Medicine - Competent
Persuasion - Competent
Politics - Master
Research - Master
Rhetoric - Expert
Socialisation - Competent


As with all eídisi, Eneli is quite tall, standing over six feet in height, though she is noticeably slimmer than the average (more solidly built) eídisi. She has long, curly platinum blonde hair which reaches to well below her breasts. Well into the twilight years of her long life, the Máthisi has deep lines now etched into her face, revealing many years well spent in the city, on an otherwise kind looking face. She dresses in black robes baring the symbol of a periwinkle owl on a white branch - the sign of Yvithia's most loyal. Eneli is one of the closest confidants to the Immortal of Intelligence, and is well known as her undisputed right hand. A master of manipulating the minds of others, Eneli devoted years of her younger life to excelling at all she sought to learn. Unknown to all but the closest to her, she spent her formative years serving as a researcher in the Facility for Retrospective Analysis, before being guided into politics by her patron. Yvithia was key to her student's success, and the city has seemingly thrived under the close bond between the two.

Verity Talius

Race: Eídisi
Age: 75 Arcs
Title: Delegate
Blessings:
Skills: Endurance - Competent
Leadership - Competent
Negotiation - Expert
Politics - Master
Research - Competent
Rhetoric - Competent
Tactics - Master

Verity is the chief political advisor to the Máthisi, as well as serving as ambassador when seeking to assimilate other cultures into their own society and, thus, learn more about them through the FRA. Besides Yvithia, he is Valtharn's closest contact within the city. Rumoured to be a bastard child of Yvithia's, and publicly regarded as the most popular Delegate, most resent that he will never achieve a higher status than the one he already does. His milky white eyes reveal little emotion despite the insanity that burns behind them, which is surprisingly well hidden from the general population of Viden.

This man is unusual in that Lord Verity Talius - the current head of the family - is not an Aristocrat by birth. In reality, he rose up from the Precariat class (the lowest class in Viden). The truth about Verity is that he was once human, and holds the honour (or curse) of being the newest originally created eídisi, after experiments a mere half a century ago. Despite an exceptionally drawn out time of suffering in the FRA, and numerous unnecessary experiments following his rebirth as an eídisi, he has unwavering support of Viden's secret facility, and is devout to his creator. Turned and marked thrice by Yvithia, he became an Exhalted member of the Xypha community, and soon rose to become her Champion. With senior officials in Viden keen to cover up Verity's human origins (lest the existence of the FRA be revealed to the general public), as well as to give the man a better standing, Verity took the surname of his spouse, Elise: an eídisi from one of the most affluent families in Viden, who had just inherited the title of Lady Talius which, in turn, gave him his name and title.

This unprecedented shift from nothing to a position of power was not unwarranted - Verity is much like his contemporaries in that he is unwavering in his loyalty to the Immortal Yvithia. His ruthless ambition and keen sense for politics makes him a formidable member of the Directorate, second only to the Máthisi in power. He is Yvithia's Right Hand, which is the true basis for the Talius family's growing power within Viden.

Mikael Killarney

Race: Human
Age: 37 Arcs
Title: Delegate
Blessings:
Skills: Business Management - Expert
Hunting - Expert
Persuasion - Expert
Politics - Competent
Stealth - Competent
Tracking - Master
Trading - Expert
Weapon: Longbow - Expert


One of two humans in the Directorate, Mikael was a hunter and merchant. At the prime of his life, fifteen years ago, he as unhorsed and, on his fall, caught his leg in a small crevasse, snapping his leg in two. Unable to receive treatment in time, he knew he would never walk again, and turned to politics. Abhorring sympathy from those around him, he fought for regulation around the city, citing that Viden was a place to exercise the mind, rather than the body. His rationale was that others should not be excluded from studies because of physical ailments, and the support he received was astronomical. Access through the inhospitable city has been improved tenfold, with small armies of workers set the task of keeping common paths and roads clear of heavy snowfall or ice every morning. Given his own background, he was also roped in to work with the merchants, hunters and mariners, keep to see them thrive for the benefit of the city.

Thaneus Bovuin

Race: Human
Age: 51 Arcs
Title: Delegate
Blessings:
Skills: Investigation - Expert
Leadership - Competent
Negotiation - Master
Philosophy - Competent
Politics - Expert
Research - Competent
Socialisation - Competent

Thaneus' relationship with the city and Directorate is a rocky one, now serving his second term after being re-elected. The interesting part is that his first term lasted for only three days: when he was first invited into the government offices and was told of the Facility for Retrospective Analysis, he emptied the contents of his stomach over the documents he had been ordered to sign. A short, stocky man of a good Videnese family, Thaneus left the city the day after. Just over two arcs would pass before he returned to the city, apparently with a new understanding and appreciativeness for the work carried out by the FRA. He stood for re-election that year (after the surprising removal of his own replacement), claiming that he would be a true representative for the human "minority". Though many would not see it, he has been true to his word, carefully screening new entrants into the FRA to ensure their suitability for research.

Caeli Fahe

Race: Eídisi
Age: 49 Arcs
Title: Delegate
Blessings:
Skills: Leadership - Competent
Linguistics - Competent
Persuasion - Expert
Politics - Competent
Research - Expert
Singing - Competent

The only other female in the Directorate, Caeli is constantly being groomed for the responsibility that all know she will one day bare the mantle of. Relatively new to the position, in comparison with the other Delegates, the eídisi is fully accepting of her flaws and mistakes on the job, which has endeared her to the citizens of Viden. Though known to have taken many partners throughout her younger years, she has never committed to any, and has publicly declared that she would not jeopardise her responsibility to the city by taking on a partner or starting a family. Considered to be uncommonly beautiful even by members of other races, tall and slender with straight ebony locks which frame her green-tinged skin, Caeli is one of the youngest eídisi to ever serve a term in Viden's government. It probably helps that her paternal grandfather is the Chancellor of the Academy while her father maintains a position as Head Researcher at the FRA.

[Viden] NPC List

The Academy
Moderator's Note: These NPCs require permission from a Prophet to self-moderate.

Sheud Fahe

Race: Eídisi
Age: 122 Arcs
Title: Chancellor of the Academy
Qualification: Licentiate of Languages in Linguistics
Charter of Humanities in History
Skills: Leadership - Expert
Linguistics - Expert
Negotiation - Expert
Painting - Competent
Politics - Competent
Research - Master

Paternal Grandfather to Delegate Caeli Fahe, Sheud is the Head of the Fahe family (arguably the most influential family in Viden). Given the best opportunities in life by his exceedingly wealthy parents, Sheud had the opportunity to study whatever he pleased at the Academy... merely for the sake of studying. With a number of degrees under his belt, he became a scholar at the Academy for a number of years before taking the opportunity to travel to other regions in Idalos and cement his theoretical knowledge with practical experience.

Upon news of his father's death reaching him, the man dutifully returned to the city to take up his rightful place at the head of his family. He was also reinstated at the Academy, and his experience allowed him to easily earn a further degree in Linguistics, and the Deanship of the Institute of Languages. Years later, the death of the previous Chancellor opened up the position, and he was named the new Chancellor of the Viden Academy.

Verin Rush

Race: Human
Age: 34 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Arcana, Liaison to The Seekers
Qualification: Charter of Science in Herbalism
Letter of Science in Empathy
Skills: Herbalism - Expert
Hypnotism - Expert
Leadership - Competent
Negotiation - Expert
Poisoncrafting - Competent
Research - Expert
Rhetoric - Competent


Elder twin brother of Venser Rush, Verin was not believed to be responsible for their mother's death. He was, therefore, treated like a prince by their father, if only to emphasise the difference between him and his 'murderous' brother. The twins never fell for their father's attempted manipulative ways, however, and remained as close as two who shared a womb could be, Verin, on occasion, even going as far to take some of his drunken father's blows, to save Venser from the pain. As Verin was given every chance to study at the Viden Academy, Venser was not gifted the same opportunity, and received only the compulsory education. By the time his learning ended, however, the younger of the Rush twins had been claimed as a Neophyte in the faction of The Seekers.

As Verin gained more and more qualifications with each passing year, Venser too rose through the ranks, until both held respectable positions in each organisation. The Dean of the Academy, realising that one of his employees had a twin brother who was now the Inquisitor for the Northern Cell of the Seekers, decided to promote Verin a final time, making him a Liaison between the two organisations and, for the first time, allowing academic, theoretical study of arcana to take place. To have full weight as the new Liaison, he also took on the title of Dean of the Institute of Arcana, though Verin's personal knowledge of arcana is relatively sparse, and he had a number of more qualified people working below him in his Institute.

Hope Dewispe

Race: Human
Age: 62 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Arts
Qualification: Licentiate of Arts in Literature
Skills: Leadership - Expert
Linguistics - Novice
Calligraphy - Competent
Politics - Competent
Research - Master


Description here.

Cecil Synk

Race: Ithecal
Age: 54 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Humanities
Qualification: Licentiate of Humanities in History
Diploma of Humanities in Retrospective Studies
Skills: Cosmetology - Novice
Leadership - Expert
Politics - Competent
Research - Master


The first member of a race other than human or eídisi to take a Deanship of an Institute, Cecil has made history in Viden multiple times and is well known and respected around the city. With a particular interest in the events of the Great Shattering, he is also the only non-eídisi that Yvithia has ever considered inviting into the FRA, to assist in him studies, as well as see if the ithecal had any insights. Cecil never did receive that opportunity, but he still garnered the presiding Immortal's attention, and became one of the most successful 'outsiders' to study in the Academy. It was Cecil who paved the way, opening up the doors of the Academy wider for other foreigners, as common opinions of other races are now beginning to change; they are no longer just thought of as neanderthals.

Yseulte Keant

Race: Eídisi
Age: 81 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Languages
Qualification: Licentiate of Languages in the Common Tongue
Charter of Languages in Linguistics
Skills: Handwriting - Competent
Leadership - Expert
Linguistics - Master
Politics - Competent
Research - Master

Yseulte is well known throughout a number of cities in Idalos, having travelled extensively with the goal of fully understanding the construction of the Common Tongue. From a relatively poor family, not much was expected of her, beyond receiving a Letter degree, but she managed to surprise many with her constant dedication to her studies, often working alongside her degrees. No one studied and worked as hard as Yseulte did, even when she birthed a daughter, she continued working and studying at the Academy. It was no surprise to the city when, at a young age, she was offered the Deanship, but it was a shock when she rejected it, in favour of beginning new studies in a broader topic. More years passed, and she excelled, taking on more and more classes to teach, until she finally had no more time to study. Again, with the promotion of Chancellor Sheud, she was offered the Deanship, and this time she accepted, grateful to slow down a little.

Trandino Adarius

Race: Human
Age: 58 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Sciences
Qualification: Licentiate of Sciences in Herbalism
Certificate of Sciences in Medicine
Skills: Herbalism - Expert
Leadership - Expert
Politics - Competent
Research - Master
Rhetoric - Master
Poisoncrafting - Master

Much like Cecil, Trandino made history in Viden, just a very years before his colleague, in becoming the first non-Videnese scholar to be offered a Deanship at the Academy. Most surprisingly, Trandino did not originally come to Viden with the most honourable of intentions, planning on abusing the system. To what end, was never discovered, but a few years into his studentship, Trandino met a member of the FRA (though he never knew it), who introduced him to a whole new side of Viden. Slowly, Trandino's opinions were changed... blah. Help.

Kalin Survie

Race: Eídisi
Age: 56 Arcs
Title: Dean of the Institute of Technologies
Qualification: Licentiate of Technologies in Something

Politics - Competent

The Facility for Retrospective Analysis
Moderator's Note: These NPCs require permission from a Prophet to self-moderate.

Selek Fahe

Race: Eídisi
Age: 84 Arcs
Title: Head Researcher
Skills: Herbalism -
Medicine -
Research - Master


Father of the Delegate Caelie Fahe.

Ansel Virike

Race: Eïdisi
Age: 61 Arcs
Title: Researcher
Skills:


Ansel is not a very emotional man, keeping a nigh on constant calm composure, more so than even the average eídisi. He prefers that no one knows who he truly is, what he truly loves, or any weakness that he may have. It is very rare that one angers him, even more unlikely that one makes him happy, only his wife can do that. Or his work. It is not unreasonable to assume that his lack of empathy with the world around him is directly related to the nature of his work. His goal in anything is to gain the knowledge, and he is willing to do so with any means.

He is strict in nature and treats his men with the toughest love felt. He is much more spiteful than his wife, so if one who's rank was close to or below his were to deal with him, they would need more than just their Immortal's protection to save them. He is also extremely paranoid that someone is aiming to kill him or his family, so he keeps a steady guard at all times. His one dream is to see Yvithia's one dream realized, and works hard every day to see that dream come to fruition..

Evelyn Grey

Race: Eídisi
Age: 52 Arcs
Title: Researcher, Liaison to the Infirmary
Skills: Herbalism - Expert
Leadership - Expert
Medicine - Master
Organisation - Expert
Politics - Competent
Seduction - Competent
Poison - Novice

Evelyn is a cunning and devious woman, unafraid to use any method no matter how dirty to get what she wants or needs. A well-practiced sociopath, she is a formidable manipulator, and very rarely finds herself wanting. She is a skilled seductress, and very beautiful, capable of putting many men off guard in her presence... and many women too. A valuable asset to both the FRA and the Infirmary, she is possibly the only person who maintains two roles, and manages to keep them separate and unnoticed by most, particularly when she disappears from the Infirmary for hours at a time. She is responsible for ensuring that outdated equipment from the FRA as brought up to the Infirmary, as well as overseeing the daily tasks of any who might be carrying out work that affects both places.

Lord Tyburn Tariq - Patriarch
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 56
Title: Lord; Political Advisor; Arcana Lecturer (Attunement and Transmutation)
Blessings: Xypha - Favoured
Skills: Politics - Master; Etiquette - Master; Attunement - Master; Leadership - Expert; Transmutation - Expert; Teaching - Expert; Rhetoric - Competent

More forthcoming
Wyllum Tariq - Heir
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 26
Title: Tariq Heir ("Lord" Wyllum); Sabre Instructor
Skills: Politics - Master; Etiquette - Expert; Blade (Sabre) - Expert; Leadership - Expert; Teaching - Competent; Strength - Competent
Details: Son of Lord Tyburn and Lady Silva Tariq (née Yalta), Wyllum is seen by some as an aristocratic brat who was born with more money than sense. He's extremely arrogant and seems to enjoy lording his sense of superiority over others. However, given that he's one day expected to take on the full weight of the Tariq name, he was encouraged to give something back to Videnese society; he chose to teach at the Viden Academy Fitness Centre. Despite his rather difficult personality, Wyllum isn't a terrible teacher and when giving instruction, he can be quite charming as well as helpful.

Known for a love of alcohol - greatly frowned upon in Viden - he is known to enjoy a good party and for those in the know, his closeness with the Aranaz family seems to have obvious motives. He is rumoured to enjoy the company of women a great deal and hushed rumours abound. Something of a wild child, many of his failings are ignored by Videnese society as a result of his status and the position his father holds as an arcana lecturer and advisor to the Directorate.

Wyllum also seems to have a thing with his fellow Blades Instructor, Bella Tollan, which is at least partially competitive.

Voren - Eídisi

Aenean vel ornare neque, id tincidunt risus. In mollis non libero auctor dapibus.

Yalta - Human


The Yalta family are an old and well respected member of the Videnese aristocracy, having been part of it for at least the last six generations. This is a family steeped in history and tradition, their wealth comes from the slave trade and they have thrived in Viden for many an arc. As the family owns a number of slave-related businesses, they are one of the wealthier members of the Videnese Aristocracy. Furthermore, they are known for ensuring that their slaves are well trained and suitable for other members of the Aristocracy or the Masters of Videnese society - to own a Yalta- Trained Slave is to own the best.

The family has close links with the FRA, for obvious reasons and with the Academy.

Current Family Members:
Lord Philip Yalta (Patriarch) Lady Cicile Yalta (dec'd Arc 715)
Lord Giro (Heir) Spouse: Jina Lord Pal'yn Spouse: Corrine Lady Ses'ka Currently Unwed
Lord Philip (Patriarch)
Image
Name: Lord Philip Yalta
Created by: Zana
Race: Human
Birthday/Age: Age 50 in 718
Title: Lord
Skills: Business Management - Master (76), Logistics - Expert (70), Mathematics - Competent (40). Rumoured to be a master with the sword and very useful with poisons. But those are just rumours.....
Details: The patriarch of the Yalta house, Lord Philip is utterly focused on ensuring that his family line continues. He is a ruthless and cold hearted bastard of a man and since his wife died her more gentle influence has been sorely missed. His four children have been raised wanting for nothing but there is a lot of pressure on them from him now. For the boys, for them to get their wives with children and for his daughter to marry. He does not want Giro to take over the family as he worries that his sons sadistic tendencies and depraved tastes will be his undoing.
NB This NPC has other skills which mods will reveal as appropriate to your story.
Lord Giro (Heir)
Image
Name: Giro Yalta
Created by: Zana
Race: Human
Birthday/Age: 30 in 718
Title: Lord
Skills: Medicine - Expert (65), Torture - Expert (53), Seduction - Expert (50).
Details: Giro is as cruel as he is handsome and he rules his wife with an iron first - often literally. Jina is a frightened mouse of a woman and Giro has a number of mistresses who he openly courts. His appetites are sadistic and he respects only those who show him strength. He believes women to be weak and exerts his control and dominance in all things.
NB This NPC has other skills which mods will reveal as appropriate to your story.
Lord Pal'yn
Image
Name: Pal'yn Yalta
Created by: Zana
Race: Human
Birthday/Age: 28 in 718
Title: Lord
Skills: Painting - Expert (68), Drawing - Expert (60), Etiquette - Competent (40)
Details: The opposite of his brother as chalk is to cheese, Pal'yn is a gentle and artistic soul. He has no wish to take over the family business as he finds it distasteful in the extreme. He has no interest in his wife who, though beautiful is not at all interested in the arts. Therefore, since he adheres to his marriage vows, Pal'yn spends his time painting and drawing and longing for a life which is simply not available to him.
NB This NPC has other skills which mods will reveal as appropriate to your story.
Lady Ses'ka
Image
Name: Ses'ka Yalta
Created by:[/b ]Zana
Race: Human
Birthday/Age: 26 in 718
Title: Lady
Skills: Acrobatics - Master (76), Etiquette - Expert (54), Business Management - Expert (52), Logistics - Competent (45)
Details: Ses'ka is the youngest child of the Yalta family and there is a lot of pressure on her to wed appropriately. However, she is not bending to pressure and will be marrying someone when she chooses. This fact is much to her father's chagrin. She is a bright and knowledge-hungry woman who is by far and away the one most capable of running the family business when the current patriarch dies. However, as the youngest child and the daughter of a very strict-minded man, her chances are very slim indeed. She is a spirited and determined individual who has often be described as wilful by her family. She likes to think of herself as having a lot of character, she is quick to respond.

A senior investigator within the Intelligence Authority, Taysin doesn't deal with typical matters of law and order. She doesn't investigate petty crime but is instead typically given the job of keeping an eye on those from potential problem races (Ithecal, Naerrik, etc.) and suspicious individuals. Her job isn't simply surveillance however, as she also tracks down items that have been smuggled into the city.

Taysin may come across as quite haughty to those that she deems as being lesser races but she will show a warmer demeanour to those who prove their intelligence to her either through words or deeds. She is a good communicator who is quite determined to have her own opinion heard but who will also do her best to hear as many points of view as she can when considering a dilemma.

Taysin is quite aware of the FRA's existence and unbeknownst to many, she is greatly beloved by Yvithia and is in fact one of her protégées.

Yorrick is a quiet, aloof-seeming man. He's a man of few words and when he does speak, it's usually wise to pay attention to him because he's considered his words very carefully indeed. He spends more time watching others, observing both physical body language and his target's Tangle. He is has a scholarly curiosity about the emotions of others but he doesn't take pleasure in playing with them although he considers it necessary. Yorrick works with the IA and typical work involves calming suspects and making them cooperative, gaining a sense of the Videnese population's satisfaction levels and supporting his colleagues where necessary.
