Abel "The Inferno"
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 109
Profession: Assassin | Class: Faithful of Asoth

Abel has earned a reputation in the dark circles of assassination for his innate ability to set targets on fire and leave naught but cinders. Despite his fascination with the dark God Asoth, he is actually very cheerful and lazy person on a day-to-day basis. Most of his energy, and attention, that is not being used by "work" goes straight into the love of his life: Ross Watchgate. Abel doesn't seem to regard people's lives with much weight or consequence unless they personally are attached to him.

Akihiko
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 113
Profession: Samurai & Assassin | Class: Ronin

Akihiko was born to the Salamander Clan but lost his family when he was a small child - victims of an assassination by the Bloody Hound. As a result, he quickly devolved into rage and turned Ronin to hunt his family's killer. Ironically, meeting Akuchi changed everything - the two became lovers, with Akihiko even taking on Akuchi's contract with Mouko to spare the man from doing more heinous crimes. The issue is, since he's doing them now Akuchi feels morally obligated to stay with him so he didn't get _that_ far from his master in the end. Akihiko is grouchy, moody and extremely blunt.

Akuchi Kirranu "The Bloody Hound"
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: Samurai & Assassin | Class: Ronin

Born as Tofino Ishia, Akuchi was never a normal child. He was born with a supernatural talent for the battle field and no dragon - signs he was destined to end up on the Scion of Entropy's pay roll. Ultimately his talent for murder earned him the moniker "The Bloody Hound", which he adopted as his name since it protected what was left of his family (Saiya) from dishonor. He lucked upon love in the form of a survivor of one of his assassination jobs, Akihiko, who took on Akuchi's contract with Mouko he felt morally obligated to stay with the man while he did his work. He does sometimes moonlight in the company of Chestin and his friends. Akuchi is quiet, introspective and not particularly judgmental of others.

Andrew Semnar
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 367
Profession: Priest | Class: Faithful of Asoth, High Priest

Andrew began his life as a meager farmer who was stricken with a vision of a greater destiny - to bring the dark God Asoth into this world. He founded the Cult of Asoth and is personally responsible for the recruitment of most of its core members. He has worked with various dark forces in Aether (including Mouko and the A'dalis) in the name of his master. He presents the image of an understanding, but demanding, father figure - often dolling out sympathy and praise at just the right moment to keep others feeling at home in their sub dimensional home of Vox Diablos.

Ann Kenstein
Played by Demica

Species: Robot | Faction: Consortium
Gender: n/a | Age: n/a
Profession: Servant | Class: n/a

The Aetherian looking robot creation of Chester Kenstien, Ann was originally created to resemble his wife and become her new "body" while he was mad with grief. However, when he realized how insane that was he made her into something of the daughter he never had. She is willful, curious and a bit strange in the head but eager to try and meet others.

Alistair Twilight
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Dark World
Gender: M | Age: 68
Profession: Pianist & Reaper | Class: Diablo

Called the "Saint of Ivory", Alistair was one of the best pianists in all of Aether. The one thing, however, that listeners noticed was a lack of emotional surge in his work - because Alistair himself is no good with emotional attachments. He often remains analytical, detached and efficient - warming up only in the company of his spouse, Witchly. He found he had a talent for Reaper work, which was one part stealth tactics and then a lot of patient observations - which was right in his wheel house.

Arcadian Darling
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Consortium
Gender: M | Age: 44
Profession: Inventor | Class: Count of Aileron

Born Arcadia Darling, and female, the genius inventor struggled in "her" young life. The demands upon a woman were very different than what she wanted in her life, as a result she beseeched the Heavenly Host and was surprised to find them receptive enough to grant her a literal change in gender. Arcadian has since established himself as a capable part of the Consortium and a long time friend/companion of Chestin and Tyler. Arcadian is also the only student Templar Detridon ever took under his wing.

Arcturus
Played by Robin

Species: Aranaea (Slada'sha Corrupted) | Faction: ???
Gender: M | Age: 310
Profession: Mage | Class: Exalted

Arcturus was a whimsical but highly intelligent mage - a rare class among his people, who notoriously distrusted magic. He was born albino, considered weaker than others, and worked hard to define his identity to his people and his family (the royal family of the Aranaea). However, when he took on some of the corruption infesting sister Tess the Slada'sha took over his mind. He warped, both mentally and physically, and cut off his connections to everyone he knew - which at that point was Eshana and most of the Champion's League. The last time anyone saw him he was running an End of Days cult.

Asato Usodekatameru
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 345
Profession: Samurai | Class: Ryuheika

Asato is a man who has lost his family more than once - which is too many times for just about anyone. The uncle of River, he often struggled with the weakening of Land of Dragons politics as Aether's involvement grew. However, most of that fell to the wayside when he was betrayed by one of his own, a man named Orion, and killed before Mouko and his wife Eriko. Mouko resurrected him, forcing him to serve the man Asato had spent his life vowing to destroy. He then went so far as to mess with the child his wife bore after - transforming it into twins that now had Mouko's influence in them, Mizuki and Kosuke.

Ashton Rudiger
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 459
Profession: Legal Prosecution of Aether | Class: Viscount

Ashton is a ladies man, a drinker, a party animal but all within just enough of the realm of sophistication as to not endanger his important role in Aether's court system. He struggles regularly with cleaning up the messes his son, Leorajh, makes (though less so now that he's running the Dawnbringers).

Askela Obscurity

Species: Keise | Faction: Shadow Hunters & Consortium
Gender: n/a | Age: 92
Profession: Inventor & Reaper | Class: Sabnak

From it's earliest years, little Askela wanted to invent things like its sire made. However, corrupted by the A'dalis from birth, the kittens had a rough childhood that ultimately landed them in a very unique training course - and alternate dimensional one where time moved differently. Emerging an adult (barely) by keise standards, it immediately took up working with machine parts and inventory. Askela is curious, thoughtful and level headed but a bit too pushy at times.

Astera Darahkshan
Played by Demica

Species: Phairan | Faction: Dawnbringers
Gender: F | Age: 124
Profession: Priestess | Class: Atran, Templar

Astera was born to wealth, with two big brothers looking out for her and a mother who knew how to lay down the law when necessary. She spent most of her early years sleeping around and being best friends with Lel'Eyon. Upon going to Aether she learned a great many things and helped in bringing the Heavenly Host to the new nation. While working in the Temple she met Essence, a mischievous and dark woman who she came to love. She also adopted Rissa, after helping liberate her from her parents, and trained Leila. When Essence would have been killed by a demon, Astera sacrificed herself and was brought back by the Heavenly Host as a Templar.

B ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Balthazar Forenze
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 62
Profession: Priest | Class: n/a

Balthazar grew up using his innocent face and big blue eyes to get everyone on his side. He was still a teenager when he started sleeping with Kevin - who in turn introduced him to Bezelneph, the early form of Asoth. He joined the Cult within a year and used his reach in the courts to further their agendas. A part of his courtly image was, of course, a wife, Serena. A marriage that fell apart, along with his noble life, when the new holy aura of the Temple of the Heavenly Host ousted him as a corrupted figure. He was able to escape them and join the Cult full time but he lost his ability to freely move through Aetherian society as a result.

CABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Cera Amethyst

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 48
Profession: n/a | Class: Dowager Duchess of Argent

From riches, to rags and then back to riches again - Cera's life has been a roller-coaster. Born a noble, her family fell apart with the death of her father and suicide of her mother. She was separated from her baby brother Elliot and placed into the care of the Silvestri family (with Felisha like a sister to her) but it didn't last long. She was cast out onto the streets with nothing and had to scrape by at any job that would take her - until she met Idaline. The woman was looking for a hard working apprentice and found Cera to her liking, taking her into the Desmarius home where she immediately starting fighting with Marilyn and Hadyn. However, their connection also allowed her to find Elliot, eventually join the Amethyst family and even be a Duchess for a short while.

Charles Hawking
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Consortium, Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 74
Profession: Inventor & Shinobi | Class: n/a

Charles is a rare instance where a man looks like he's built to beat down and kill things but also comes with a sharp intellect. He's very business minded, no-nonsense and direct. He is also a part of the Shadow Hunters, having originally been one of the higher ranking members of the Sky Hunters before the two factions merged. He raised Timothy and helped to train Virgil, Shanti and Kathleen. He also runs the extremely profitable Hawking Industries.

Chorozon Obscurity
Played by Christine

Species: Keise | Faction: n/a
Gender: n/a | Age: 107
Profession: Event Coordinator, Fashion Designer | Class: Sabnak

Chorozon was always a needy kitten, and has since grown into a very social (if not dependent) adult. It loves working on new and exciting projects but isn't always sure how to go about getting things done - a bit childish still in that regard. It is very close to Myth'rel, or at least they were close before Chorozon started working for the Mortis Obscurea - the rival troupe to Rylin's (and Myth'rel's) Beautie' Gothique.

Clive Madrid
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn & Dahhak | Faction: Dahhak
Gender: M | Age: 48
Profession: Seneschal | Class: King of the Dahhak

Clive's history is long and sordid, mostly because it isn't just his own. The Aetheiran named Clive is actually playing host to a Dahhak spirit, the true King of their people, K'jat. The resulting merger has left him in a vampiric state where he must feed once a month or his body will stop functioning. Despite this, he managed to forge a strong friendship with Lord Spiritual Janos III, which ultimately allowed him to bring his people out of the shadows. Sadly, their attempt to forge their own home city (Eon) resulted in chaos and destruction by the Aetherian people, which forced them to seek sanctuary in the Empire of Phaira.

Criek Obscurity
Played by Robin

Species: Keise (Corrupted) | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 92
Profession: Reaper | Class: Marbas

Criek was born a part of a litter that was corrupted while still babes. As a result, they were targets and struggled with many issues that lead to them needing special training - extra dimensional training where time passed differently, allowing them to energy equivalently adults (barely) by keise standards. Corruption sometimes forces a keise to be locked in a gender, this was the case with Criek who became stuck as a man. He suffered a lot of abuses at the hands of his obsessed litter-mate Keet and is still psychologically recovering. He is quiet, bitter and yet vulnerable.

DABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Daminous
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: Warrior | Class: Faithful of Asoth

Originally born under the name Damon Keller, he was a chipper young man with a love of music and a self-proclaimed bard. That all changed when he became host to the demon Daminous, who then impregnated Vanessa to create Bezel and Neph - who eventually became Asoth. Damon has not been in the drivers seat of his own body for decades. Daminous is aggressive, sadistic and eager to mess with people in the darkest of manners. He also has a strangely affectionate relationship with Vanessa - who, despite being raped and impregnated, came to see Asoth as the one true God.

Don Obscurity
Played by Demica

Species: Keise | Faction: Dark World
Gender: n/a | Age: 72
Profession: Inventor | Class: Sabnak

Don is a friendly, if not slightly self conscious, keise inventor. It loves gadgets, new ideas and working with interesting people or technologies. It used to be more involved in social dealings but then it fell in love with Jonathan, who consequently took a viscous injury in battle that left him wheelchair bound. Don backed off from courts, inventing and just about everything to put 100% of its energy into caring for its beloved. It also has a litter of kittens (Criek, Keet, Schaw & Askela) as well as adopting a little of a fallen friends (Rhyel, Isni & Erynu) but sadly all of the kittens were corrupted while still in their cribs. Don has worked hard to help them handle their issues from that sinister act.

Draconis
Played by Demica

Species: Entity of Dark (Appears Aetherian) | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: Butler to Janos Jr | Class: n/a

The enigmatic butler, and supposed protector, of Janos Promathea III. Draconis appeared one day, claiming JJ had great destiny and thus was granted a servant of the Dark God to ensure he could accomplish it all. He takes the form of a devious but extremely obedient butler. While he hardly ever seems to function in the capacity of protector, he and JJ share a strangely trusting relationship. He has also found a certain dark pleasure in whip-cracking underlings like Phaedria.

EABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Eira
Played by Demica

Species: True Dragon | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 22
Profession: n/a | Class: n/a

One dragon out of a clutch of little ones that were created by Satarius and Savarius, supposedly in an effort to keep their race alive. The truth was, however, it was a twisted ruse by Savarius to create dragon's to siphon for his own craven need to regain his dragonic form. Out of all of her siblings, Eira was always the closest to Erinas, so when they were both left twisted by the first of Savarius' attacks (she was locked into her human looking form and Erinas became a wraith dragon) they withdrew from everyone but each other. Then, when the Tower of Storms (where they lived) fell they opted to go there own way and haven't been seen sense. Eira herself is confident, bossy and vain - basically a dragonic cheerleader Queen Bee.

Elen Nightsinger

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 125
Profession: n/a | Class: Countess of Dovent

Elen is a harpy of the courts with a nose for facts and bullshit. She is shrewd but charming, passionate but level headed enough to not make childish mistakes that would risk her reputation. She is the mother of two children, Karis (a sadly gay pianist) and Clover (a young woman too willful for her own good). She struggles with balancing her life as a mother (and how she feels she failed there) and her life as a woman (who has yet to find a love of her own to hold onto).

Elizabelle Amethyst
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: F | Age: 80
Profession: Knight & Reaper | Class: n/a

From the day she picked up a sword, Liz always knew she wanted to be a knight and save damsels over becoming one. She was forced into a marriage at a young age and always resented it, thus giving Cripsin hell unto his dying day. After his passing, Liz barely had time to breathe before she was throw into _another_ marriage, this time with the far older Orin. She felt bad about Crispin and so she tried to make something more of her relationship with Orin... until she met Scathe. The two fell quickly in love, causing her to eventually fake her own death so she could be with him and the Shadow Fangs (who later merged to become the Shadow Hunters). She did have some hand in helping raise Elliot and Cera but not much.

Elliot Amethyst

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 43
Profession: Fashion Designer | Class: Marquise of Argent

Elliot is a young man leading two lives: One life is that of a confused and emotionally vulnerable nobleman trying to meet the demands of society even though he hates them. Another is that of Aurora Pembroke, a lovely and meek young fashion designing _lady_ of the courts. The truth is that Elliot identifies as female, despite the body he was born into, and he knows Aetherian society will never accept that. He also knows cross dressing will eventually get him caught but he cannot help enjoying the dream for now. He is close friends with Liam and Taisie, as well as a doting brother to Cera.

Elodin
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: Mage | Class: n/a

Fickle and impossible to read, Elodin is the reborn God of Wind. He has spent this lifetime as a mage who first operated as Headmaster of the Arcane Academy, but after its fall he's pretty much roamed the nations doing as he pleased while occasionally returning to date Shantrea. He is extremely flippant, irresponsible and yet cunning when you least expect it.

Emiho
Played by Heidi

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: F | Age: 69
Profession: Ite | Class: n/a

Emiho is a woman who has been betrayed many times in her past and has built a wall around her heart because of it. The only people allowed close to her are the Servants of Entropy. She is zealously loyal to Mouko and would die on his command. She acts like the buzz-kill older sister who reminds people of their obligations when they'd rather be ignoring them.

Erinas
Played by Robin

Species: True Dragon (Wraith) | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 22
Profession: n/a | Class: n/a

One dragon out of a clutch of little ones that were created by Satarius and Savarius, supposedly in an effort to keep their race alive. The truth was, however, it was a twisted ruse by Savarius to create dragon's to siphon for his own craven need to regain his dragonic form. Out of all of his siblings, Erinas was always the closest to Eira, so when they were both left twisted by the first of Savarius' attacks (he became a wraith dragon and she was stuck as a human) they withdrew from everyone but each other. Then, when the Tower of Storms (where they lived) fell they opted to go there own way and haven't been seen sense. Erinas is caustic, spiteful and moody - often thinking the worst of everyone but his precious sister.

Estella Cartwright

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 145
Profession: Handmaiden | Class: n/a

Estella has been working as a handmaiden all her life so that she can spy on her masters. She feeds the information back to her secret lover, Astaroth, who is the father of her twin boys Randall and Sheldon. She herself is patient, charming but quietly devious. She enjoys the power her station affords her, both to boost her masters up or to bring their worlds crashing down - all while she collects a pay check.

FABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Faye Leary

Species: Aetherian - Higborn | Faction: Shattered Realm
Gender: F | Age: 59
Profession: Barmaid & Theif | Class: -

On the outside, Faye is friendly and flirtatious with customers (possible marks), she is the type of barmaid that can get people to talk about their problems. Faye has led a hard life and has a sarcastic sense of humor. It's often times hard to tell, even for those close to her, who the real Faye is. The only person she really trusts is Cross due to how much she looks up to him and will follow him anywhere. She is zealously loyal to the Shattered Realm, acting like a snarky big sister to Akira, a playful rival to her fellow ladies and a constant right hand agent to Cross' every order. She loves theft, risky jobs and a bit of vengeance.

Fandral Leroy

Species: Wysterian | Faction: Cult of Asoth (Secret)
Gender: M | Age: 82 (Appears 40s)
Profession: Mage | Class: Token Noble

Fandral is a dark charmer with just enough social power to make that dangerous. He tends to play on the emotions of others, getting them to adore and love him, then he uses that to control them to his own ends. He joined the Cult of Asoth on a whim, seeking more power, and hasn't looked back. He was secretly married to Belladonna, and Monnique is their daughter, but no one is aware of this. Instead, to the public, he is known as the generous but low ranking man who donates to many a good cause - often with plenty of volunteer work that feeds things back into the Cult without anyone knowing.

Felisha Silvestri

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 48
Profession: Model & Merchant | Class: Marquise of Merlose

Bubbly, bright and extremely social, Felisha is always the life of the party. She loves a good adventure, often biting off more than she can chew in the pursuit of curiosities or bringing down a suspected "bad guy" even though she's no knight! She runs the Paradise Spa and the Smitten Kitten (a lingerie shop) while spending most of her free time with friends like Willow, Liam and Audrey. She was madly in love with Sascha but he ran out on her, breaking her heart and causing her to become rather moody when he is brought up. She was also raised, for a short stint, with Cera and thinks of her like a sister. Finally, growing up she was obsessed with marrying Hadyn but gave him up after finding her feelings for Sascha.

Finn Reaver
Played by Frankie

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn & Entity of Dark | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 155
Profession: n/a | Class: n/a

Finn was once a young knight who spent his free time secretly looking after his little brother Louis. While doing so, he fell in love with a woman named Kathline Tempest who was killed by the dahhak. Finn manages to save Kathline's daughter, Zoey, but not the woman herself. Worse, his divided attention between the two causes a window in which Louis is killed. Blaming himself, Finn seeks out the woman Louis loved (Halja) to try and help protect her too but instead falls in love with her. After Zoey also died, Finn finally snapped and the darkness within him absorbed him, making him into a wraith. While he has come back to protecting Halja (now Odette) he is a lost soul who is full of hate, bitterness and a void where any sense of hope might reside.

GABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Gaelnaris Riftwalker
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Champion's League
Gender: M | Age: 126
Profession: Knight & Mage | Class: Viscount

Gaelnaris is one of Tina's many tryst children and he is not proud of it, keeping a wary distance from his family. He is very stoic, upstanding and dignified - at least until Matius comes around. The other man is love of Gaelnaris' life but also his single strongest point of frustration since Matius keeps a lot of secrets and works with a myriad of dark forces, none of which he's honest about. He worked with the Champion's League until Melchior came to collect Matius out of nowhere - now he's chasing the demon to get his husband back.

Gillean Van Brea

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 101
Profession: Seneschal to Nathon | Class: Viscount

Nathon Van Brea had many sons, not a common thing to happen in Aether and widely thought of as a blessing unless your a part of the family. On the interior, there are a great many secrets at play in the household, especially regarding the identities of the boy's mothers. Gillean is the eldest Van Brea child and thinks of himself as his father's right hand and his the keeper of his brothers (Battista, Wayne and Michael - the latter of which is dead). He is very duty minded, logical and hard working. He secretly struggles with being gay given that he knows it falls to him to find a wife and carry on the family name now that Issac is out of the picture.

Goliath
Played by Demica

Species: Werewolf | Faction: Village of the Night Wolves
Gender: M | Age: 256
Profession: Warrior | Class: Village Warden

Goliath is big, burly and full of raw masculine power. He was born and raised a warrior, which he's extremely gifted at thanks to his massive size (he's 6'8''). He is the right hand man to Chieftain Blackwater and helped raise Kinon.

HABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Hadyn Desmarius

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 50
Profession: Merchant | Class: Marquise of Sheedan

Hadyn is a spoiled brat on the reform. He was born to wealth, raised by his grandmother Idaline and his sister Marilyn. His life changed when Cera was brought into the family, partly because of his feelings for her but also because it became a competition to keep his wealth now that his grandmother had a better candidate in the house! He was forced to work as peasants do, which opened his eyes a little and humbled him, but he's still very much a wealthy brat.

Himitsu Sanshouu

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Dawnbringers (Mibushin Gumi)
Gender: F | Age: 72
Profession: Samurai & Courtier | Class: n/a

Himitsu had everything, looks, talent for the courts, a loving family and she was even selected to marry a Daimyo (Seiko). Mouko's early attacks in the Land of Dragons killed her family and her own need for love caused her to seek refuge in the arms of prince Kaida Asa. When Seiko later died, she thought it was her chance to be with Kaida Asa forever but he turned her down - having found a second, stronger, love in Shoukin. Himitsu was devastated and took years to recover mentally. After, she found empowerment in taking up a blade to defend what was left of her people thanks to the rise of the Ocean Slada'sha. She has sense enlisted in the Mibushin Gumi, though she's still very new to her work as a budding samurai. The woman herself is patient, motherly and yet still talented enough in word play to express her sarcasm in the nicest ways possible.

IABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Ikaru Karasuhebi
Played by Demica

Species: Yokai (Appears Ryuko) | Faction: Dawnbringers
Gender: M | Age: 341
Profession: Samurai & Courtier | Class: n/a

A long and sordid history with mercenary-like gumi groups left Ikaru as something of the samurai whore in his youth. When he was turned into a yokai, it awakened a new sense of self as well as a new vigor for life in the young man. However, given he wasn't normal anymore the people saw him as the perfect shackle to keep Kaidan from breeding. Ikaru swiftly fell for the Necromancer, and the two even brought in a third lover (one of Ikaru's former lovers). They are often dragged into worldly affairs thanks to Kaidan's being a Templar. They also mentor/spend time with Rhyel on occasion. He himself is flamboyant, out going and a bit overly "gay" even for his own subculture.

Ion Zethar
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 159
Profession: Alchemist | Class: Faithful of Asoth

Even as a growing boy, Ion hated the courts and society as a whole. He was born in the era before alchemy or magic were respected fields, so to study without restrictions he joined the Cult of Asoth. There he created man potions, artifacts and even a homonculi or two (Liberty and Gen). He rivaled for a time against Sain, at least until the two became lovers a few decades ago. He is snippy, intellectual and almost childishly bratty.

JABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Jonathan Obscurity
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 86
Profession: Knight (Juggernaut Brigade, Retired) | Class: Sabnak

Jonathan was always larger than life and he used that strength as a way to protect others. Eventually his talents were noticed by the knights of the Juggernaut Brigade, of which he was one of the more famous members. This glory led to him meeting Don at a Noble's party and the two hit it off - married within a few years. They had a litter of kittens (Askela, Criek, Keet & Schaw) as well as taking in some lost ones (Rhyel, Isni & Erynu) but they were corrupted from a young age. Unsure how to help the family, Jon left for the war front instead but the battles took their toll and eventually he was sent home bound to a wheel chair. Don promptly quit work and began to dote over him endlessly while the two retired to the Dark World.

KABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Kaida Asa
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 70
Profession: Samurai & Courtier | Class: Ryuheika

The mikoto panda (prince panda) of the Land of Dragons, Kaida Asa was known for his adventurous lifestyle as he hunted Mouko and his evils. He had a secret fiery romance with Himitsu but ultimately fell in love with his traveling companion Shoukin. The two have suffered losses and gained victories against Mouko, but as his role as villain receded from the forefront of events so too have they.

Kaidan
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Dawnbringers
Gender: M | Age: 96
Profession: Shinobi & Necromancer | Class: Templar

Originally, Kaidan was just an overly murderous shinobi with talents no one could ignore. He worked as one of two right hand men to River while he was in Aether and thus forged a lasting friendship between him, his sovereign and Magnus. He was eventually forced into a marriage with Ikaru to keep him from breeding but the two are quite happy together. He became a Templar when he put everything on the line with the Dragons in order to save a poisoned Tsuhi as a child, but as a result he's now often dragged into globally important events and has even taken up Necromancy. He taught Maelstrom the dark arts of the dead as well and has spent time mentoring/hanging around with Rhyel.

Kaonashi
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 66
Profession: Shinobi | Class: n/a

Kaonashi was raised to see himself as a monster and a tool - far too hideous for anyone to love him otherwise. When his clan turned on him, leaving him for dead, he was picked up by Mouko and has remained one of his most loyal vassals ever since. He fell in love with Shiki after the Servants of Entropy took him in, though he is extremely slow to warm up to the idea of children in their lives. He is soft spoken, more prone to observing then providing input, and quick to follow orders.

Kathleen Hawking
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: F | Age: 46
Profession: Knight & Shinobi | Class: n/a

Kathleen is the daughter of an Nelsi and a mercenary that her mother never got the name of (Albrecht). She was always feisty, proud and determined to help others. She impressed JJ in his youth when she protected him during an accident they were caught up in, so he put her career to the knighthoods on the fast track. It wasn't until after she'd become a Holy Knight that he told her it was because of his crush on her - which she rejected. Kathleen fell in love with Timothy, an inventor with a dark secret life. As his spouse, she was pulled into the Sky Hunters shortly after. She did command the Holy Knights for a time, but she gave that position to Karidee when Timothy was declared missing in action. She has a cousin, Larisa and best friend Trisha.

Kelase' "The Collector"
Played by Robin

Species: Keise (Corrupted) | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: n/a | Class: n/a

Little is known about The Collector, but his MO is to kidnap the loved ones of strong warriors so he can force said warriors to fight him. It was under these terms he first met Janos II, who he later took an interest in during the Traitor's War. Several years passed before Janos embraced his own corruption and began a relationship with not only Kelase', but also Tsubasa and even Mouko. The corrupted keise is flippant, callous and extremely gender neutral in personality and presentation. His strongest trait is his curiosity, which often causes him to do terrible things just to find out how others will react to them. These days he and Tsubasa are often near Janos, having tea in the shadows as they keep an eye on him.

Khana
Played by Robin

Species: Nazcan | Faction: Empire of Nazca
Gender: F | Age: 63
Profession: n/a | Class: Empress of Nazca

Khana is the daughter of the Imperial line of Nazca. She was abducted in her youth by The Collector (along with Kumiko and Marlene) but her warrior was killed instead of being able to liberate her. She was taken in by Marlene, who thinks of her like a younger sister. Eventually she met Yunta, the high shaman's son out to help Aether stop his father's madness, and the two became lovers. They now rule their recovering nation side-by-side while trying to keep tabs on their adventurous son, Xiphil. Khana is blunt, cut throat and sassy.

Ki Lin Suppon

Species: Ryuko | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 43
Profession: Acupuncturist & Royal Healer | Class: n/a

A proper lady of the Land of Dragons, Ki Lin is demure and polite at all times. She has suffered a lot of emotional turmoil in her young life, causing her to became extremely wise and empathic with others. She has a soul sister, Clover, whom she often plays confidant to. She also had a lover, Darkmoon, but his increasingly abusive tendencies eventually forced her to flee from him for her own safety. She is also friends with Edan, since they remained on good terms even after their break up, and mentor to Lucy.

Kirin
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 49
Profession: Eco-Terrorist | Class: n/a

Whoever, or whatever, Kirin was going to be before the World Tree got a hold of him is now gone. Kirin is the wrath of his "mother" made manifest and he has no sympathy for Aetherians and/or Dahhak - the two races that killed his mother. He wanders about the nations like an act of nature, planting seeds of the World Tree and then slaughtering entire cities to feed the tree energy. He has long been hunted by Eidolon and Fenrir.

Kosuke Eki
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 17
Profession: Courtier | Class: n/a

When the twins were created, Asato made a deal with Mouko that one of them could go home and be raised with Eriko - that was Kosuke. His mother had nothing, thanks to suspicions of her (and him) being corrupted now, so they lived a modest life in the Mibushin Gumi. There, a young and constantly curious, Kosuke latched onto Saiya as a mentor in the ways of the courts. Before he could begin any career plans though, he had such a fight with his mother that he decided to leave and stay with Mouko for a time - to know his other father.

LABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Lel'Eyon
Played by Robin

Species: Phairan | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 35
Profession: Syrian | Class: n/a

Lel'Eyon is a playboy who is more than happy to use his youthful appearance (he appears in his teens) to play up to naughty fantasies. He is extremely sensual, frisky and playful but he has a sharp mind that shouldn't be ignored. Unknown to him, he is the host of Archangel Mikhael, and when possessed by the angel he acts more like a wise soldier. He is a close friend to Chestin and Astera, and a former lover to Rylin and Rosalyn (as well as many, many, others). He presently lives in Phaira since he is also very close to Emperor Varna.

Lemures
Played by Demica

Species: Aranaea | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 1000+
Profession: Many | Class: Patriarch of the Aranaea

Stoic, professional if not a bit overly judgmental - Lemures shows his age in his extremely boring and overly arrogant personality. He has seen so much, been such dark times, that he assumes he knows everything life can offer and tends to look down on the "drama" of others. He has three children: Bylla (eldest), Tess and Arcturus, but has disowned all except Tess since they either sided with (Bylla) or directly employed (Arcturus) magic.

MABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Marek Demetrio

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Legionnaires
Gender: M | Age: 295
Profession: Knight | Class: Marquise of Sheedan

Marek is a complicated man with a complicated past. His first wife, Vanessa, hated him despite his many attempts to be a good husband to her. His second wife, Marietta, he betrayed by sleeping with her daughter, Odessa. When he eloped with Odessa, however, he learned she was pregnant with another man's child. As a result, Marek has raised two children of his wives who were not his own blood: Bezel & Neph (twins) and Qyuentyn. His family life has been chaos, what with helping his sister (Emoeyn) get away from an abusive husband and then his nephew (Vyrin) being disowned for disrespecting the Promathea family. All of this has made him a mellow man who expects the worst of events and people - often he numbs his darker side with drink, pipe and a good book when he's not throwing himself into work with the Legion.

Marilyn Desmarius

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 41
Profession: Seneschal | Class: Viscountess

A spoiled young noble girl who was raised by her grandmother, Idaline, and alongside her brother, Hadyn. Their lives were cast into chaos by Cera, since their grandmother threatened their place in the family now that she had a respectable heir. To prove themselves, Hadyn and Marilyn had to get real jobs and she choose secretarial work with the Monster Hunters in their fledgling days - still run by Braiden. She formed an antagonistic friendship with Palden during this time. Eventually, however, the issues the group brought home put her own life in jeopardy. The realization of how dangerous it was hit home and she quit.

Marina Hawkeye

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 193
Profession: Ship Architect | Class: n/a

Marina could have been at home as a drunken sailor or pirate. She's blunt, she swears every few words and can drink most grown men under a table with little effort. All of her exuberance, her bravado and her charm bely a woman who is suffering beneath. Marina has lost too many children in her life, one stillborn and two adopted (Binks & Joachim). She's also had rough break ups with not one, but two lovers (Nelsi and Eidolon) but has remained friends with Eidolon. She traveled with him and Bale to stop Kirin but after Bale's death, Eidolon shut down and she found herself having to work to put a roof over their heads while he got his shit together. He's on his own now, with the exception of the ever present Fenrir, and seemingly alright but she doesn't quite buy into it...

Matius Riftwalker
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Champion's League, Shadow King
Gender: M | Age: 99
Profession: Mage, Warlock | Class: n/a

"Any cat out of its first fur never gave anyone a straight answer." ~ Cat, Last Unicorn
Matius is a man full of secrets, many of which are dark enough to give the average person nightmares, and none of which he talks about. The constant issues this brings knocking have driven more than a few wedges into his marriage with Gaelnaris - the latest of which was when Shadow King Melchior came to collect him. He is lazy, effeminate and whimsical - often prone to blowing people off or giving frustratingly vague answers whenever it pleases him. He is extremely impish and devious.

Mattimeo Di Rossi
Played by Alenya

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: Hermaphrodite | Age: 381
Profession: Legal Defense of Aether | Class: Viscount

Known in the courts as "Songbird", Mattimeo has a wondrous voice and a reputation as a noble _man_ despite its lack of easily defined gender. It has worked hard to build a reputation in Aether, hence the gendered role it took on to further that, and is very proud of its work as the Legal Defense of Aether. It doesn't get close to many people, being quiet and introspective by nature. It has plenty of solid reasons to avoid opening up to others, especially since it has worked so hard to keep from the courts its "true" nature.

Miki Kawazu
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Dawnbringers
Gender: M | Age: 40
Profession: Ite | Class: Atotori

Boyishly energetic, prone to crushes on strong women (such as Tess) and with a strong sense of moral right and wrong - Miki is a very likable young man. He has been raised by Takeshi and taken most of the man's better traits on, with almost none of his terrible ones. He is nephew to Tsubasa and could have been the rightful Daimyo of the Frog Clan if not for the fall of his home nation. He works with Takeshi against the Time Keepers and their enigmatic master, Fate.

Mizuki Eki
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 17
Profession: Mahotsukai | Class: n/a

He is a somber yet confident person who no longer questions his worth to the world around him. He loves for his family in the Palace (anyone in the Servants of Entropy) and has completely washed his hands of his mother (Eriko). He tends to be passionate and sassy when offended. He is very close to his fathers (Asato & Mouko) as well as his twin, Kosuke. He was born and raised in the Palace of Entropy, unlike Kosuke, and has only ever known the loving presence of his father's servants for company.

Mystic Moon
Played by Demica

Species: Werewolf | Faction: Village of the Night Wolves
Gender: M | Age: 506
Profession: Mystic | Class: High Mystic

The High Shaman is best known for his strange personality, for he is equal parts wise and frivolously insane. He is known to talk to objects about his home (cauldrons, bottles, flowers) and seems to be 24/7 high as a kite, what with how laid back he is and how many strange things he claims to see. He took in Kinon from a young age and raised her as well as a vapid wilderness alchemist really can.

Myth'rel Obscurity
Played by Dominic

Species: Keise | Faction: n/a
Gender: n/a | Age: 107
Profession: Performer & Musician | Class: Sabnak

A bit spoiled, but not overly rude about it. Myth is calm and reserved most of the time, and loves to be doted upon by others. It has always been quietly in love with Rylin, so when the man's marriage fell apart and his troupe needed to be restarted it was only natural Myth'rel stepped up. However, this put it at odds with its family and close friend, Chorozon, who started working with a rival troupe under Barnaby.

NABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Nathon Van Brea

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 323
Profession: n/a | Class: Count of Falas

Nathon is a hard ass, impossible to read and the kind of man who will take his secrets to his grave. He does not intimidate well, embodying the stoic nature of the Queen of England. He has many sons, none from the same wife: Issic, Wayne, Battista, Gillaen and Michael - the last of which died in an attack on the capitol. Nathon's choices in that moment threw the other boys into chaos, with Gillean landing squarely in favor of his father, Issic running off with a ryuko bride and Battista and Wayne leaving the family out of resentment. Even so, Nathon has yet to show any emotional turmoil over the facts and instead carries on with steel-cold decorum in his duties.

Nicholas Domace

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Xanthus Mafia
Gender: M | Age: 23
Profession: Violinist & Debt Collector | Class: Marquis of Phandaria

He is tenacious, determined but a bit stand-offish. Nic tends to bottle negative things up and then let them loose without warning. Most of this is due to the situations in his two respective families. He was raised a Domace, under Virgil, and never made aware that Sable was his real mother - or Wyatt his real father. He was fed lies upon lies, so when the truth came out he lost any faith in his family. Add in that Virgil later announced he'd been sleeping with a young man Nicholas' own age, Kristee's suicide and Karidee's inability to even talk with him and he distanced from them all in short order. He attempted to make a new family in the Xanthus Mafia but their interweaving with the Cult of Asoth has left a bad taste in his mouth. He's pondering asking his childhood friend/idol, Kris, for help escaping to the Shattered Realm.

Nu
Played by Alenya

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: F | Age: 57
Profession: Courtier & Priestess | Class: n/a

Nu was born blind and taken advantage of constantly for the fact. The horrors came to an end, however, the day she met Mouko. Nu was the first of his Servants of Entropy and his most zealously loyal follower. She acts as a mother to the other Servants, often ensuring things are running smoothly, tending to emotional needs and caring for any children. She is sultry but not slutty, a woman of quiet confidence who has no issues destroying threats to her family.

OABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Odessa Wade

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 72
Profession: Author | Class: Marquis of Merlose

Odessa was brought to the capitol city by her mother, Marietta, because of a vision. Her mother, prone to foresight, had seen that her daughter needed to be there but could not see why. Odessa made friends with Janos, Kurix and Edan shortly after her arrival. When Lucien took over she married Kurix but found little love in the marriage. This resulted in her throwing herself into a whirlwind romance with her mother's husband, Marek. The two eloped, but this was after a one-night-stand with Edan that resulted in their son, Quentyn. When Marek abandoned her, she tried to raise her son but he only ever had eyes on meeting Edan. Odessa resolved to pickup her own life after having everyone walk out on her, focusing on working via the Temple as a diplomat and an author under the pen name Samuel O'Darylton.

Odette
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Shattered Realm
Gender: F | Age: 100
Profession: Dancer & Rogue | Class: n/a

Born with the name Halja Tempest, she was a young woman with image issues and a controlling family life. When she met Kallast it was everything she needed, a father figure, a mentor, someone to tell her she was worthwhile. He awoke from within her the sleeping spirit of the Sister of End Times, Malach the Destroyer, and it took over her life. She met and fell in love with Louis, though the two were only together a short time before his death - which shattered her sanity. She also liberated a fellow Sister of End Times, Bahai, and carried that soul to term as a child, Hope. Having tried to rebuild a life for herself, she works with the Shattered Realm and teams up with Finn - the two are currently on the run, however, to get the Mafia off Hope's back.

QABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Quentyn Blackthorne

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth (Secret)
Gender: M | Age: 35
Profession: n/a | Class: Duke of Merlose

Described as Mordred but for the Kingdom of Aether, he is a dark person with an extremely self-serving agenda. He harbors a lot of jealousy towards his elder brother, Edward, who he views as having all the things _he_ should have grown up with. He also hates his father, Edan, for not having been there all his life - to say nothing of how he resents Odessa and Marek who raised him. He is spiteful but wears the face of a sweet angel over his ugliness, often prone to using guilt trips, sweet promises and the occasional well placed tear to win over others. He secretly works with the Cult of Asoth, but only in as much as they agree to further his plans and give him trinkets to get the job done. He currently cannot stand that Edward is happily married to Karidee, but with seduction having failed he must think of others ways to get revenge.

RABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Randall Cartwright

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Order of the Crown
Gender: M | Age: 26
Profession: Knight | Class: n/a

Flirty, mischievous and all around a lot of good fun, Randall is the sunshine of the Cartwright twins. As a result, his brother Sheldon has spent much of his life either cleaning up after Randy or making excuses for his actions. He still lives with his mother, Estella, but only because he worries about her emotionally being on her own. He has a lot of budding resentment towards their absentee father Astraroth but loves and adores his niece Lydia. He is an active knight in the Order of the Crown but doesn't take his work _to_ seriously.

Rissa Darahkshan

Species: Phairan | Faction: Monster Hunters
Gender: F | Age: 37
Profession: Mage | Class: Commander of the Monster Hunters

It isn't often a young woman has the chance to be raised by a demon possessed father and the warlock mother who got him possessed in the first place. Rissa grew up as their work mule and sometimes daughter, so she was often withdrawn and victimized as a child. She was rescued by Lel'Eyon and Astera, the latter of which adopted her. Growing up with the wild and sensual priestess left Rissa a lot of room to grow as a person, eventually she found the book studies and quiet pondering of magic drew her in. She has been a long time friend of Chestin and Leila, the latter of which recently died. Losses and struggles have brought her very much so out of her former shell, unleashing a woman who is quick to make choices, step up when others wont and get things done. She is also one of the very few people who think of Hadley as a friend.

Roman Adacus

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Shattered Realm
Gender: M | Age: 59
Profession: Thug & Bakery Employee | Class: n/a

He is a kind, selfless person who is willing to help others, even when he is not given credit for it. He has a strong sense of justice, as he despises those who hurt others, especially his friends and will defend them with all his might. He is outgoing amoung friends, a bit uncomfortable around strangers (who aren't his enemies of course) because he figures they are scared of his size and very private about his deeper passions - especially how much he loves baking. He has been with the Shattered Realm for years now and is one of the trusted "inner circle" who began the gang - as a result he is close to Faye, I'Frit, Cross, Dale and Akira. He enjoys giving newbess the run around, like Emeline, Marlene and Gavin.

Rosalyn Marche
Played by Heather

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 49
Profession: Mage, Director & Screenwriter | Class: Viscountess

Rosalyn always knew that her future was to be married to Rylin. The two seemed the perfect fit, they both spent years growing up in the Land of Dragons and loved the culture, they both loved theater and screen writing and they were both sensually open enough to have outside lovers like Lel'Eyon. The issue was, Rylin became jealous and then started ignoring her in favor of literally anyone else. Eventually this devolved into years of separation and ultimately divorce. She herself is a very empowered, forthright and motherly woman who tends to favor logic over emotion - especially when upset.

Ross Watchgate
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 74
Profession: Assassin | Class: n/a

Ross was the victim of family wide abuse as a child. After their murder, he was quickly picked up by the Cult of Asoth - only learning years later that Abel was the one to kill his family. While initially upset about it, he warmed up to the other man and the two have been lovers for years now. While they have no children, they have raised a small flock of dwarf sheep together. He also has an imp and a succubus tethered to him spiritual thanks to some "miscalculations" Sain made in a ritual. In terms of personality, Ross is petulant, grumpy but actually very affectionate - a tsundere.

Rylin Marche
Played by Christine

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 52
Profession: Director & Mage | Class: Count of Merrin

Rylin always knew that his future was to be married to Rosalyn. The two seemed the perfect fit, they both spent years growing up in the Land of Dragons and loved the culture, they both loved theater and screen writing and they were both sensually open enough to have outside lovers like Lel'Eyon. The issue was, Rylin became jealous and then started ignoring her in favor of literally anyone else. Eventually this devolved into years of separation and ultimately divorce. Rylin has studied magic under Eshana and lost a theater troupe to Barnaby. The latter caused him to reforge his old troupe as best he can, calling it the Beautie' Gothique. He is romantically inclined towards Myth'rel. He himself is entitled, proud and a just conniving enough to get in over his head.

Sable Collinwell
Played by Christine

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 174
Profession: Diplomat & Instructor | Class: Duchess of Phandaria

Sable was always a sweet and gentle soul with more compassion than she knew what to do with. She had a torturous relationship with Keyne, where in he left her at the altar no less than three times. After, she gave up and married a friend to avoid a miserable betrothal, and that was her marriage to Virgil. Naturally, just after, she gets Karidee and Kristee dumped on her by Keyne _and_ finally finds love in Wyatt. Thankfully, Christopher nulled her marriage to allow her to be with Wyatt, but it came too late for her son Nicholas who she claimed was a child she "found" instead of being hers with a secret lover. When the secret came out, Nic turned against her - just as she lost another child to miscarriage. These days she focuses on diplomacy and mentors Hope.

Sadarius Elsword
Played by Demica

Species: Keise & Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: AEGIS
Gender: M | Age: 33
Profession: Mage & Instructor | Class: Headmaster & Baron

Sadarius was born of two worlds but never felt at home in either. The only thing that brings him any joy is magic, studying and utilizing it. He has a very dry, unemotive and Alan Rickman character style of personality - often looking down on others from his position of authority and intellectual superiority. He has become the Headmaster of AEGIS and takes the role extremely seriously despite being at the whims of the Council over him. He knows Elodin but finds his personality grating.

Sain Evelance
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Cult of Asoth
Gender: M | Age: 334
Profession: Alchemist | Class: Faithful of Asoth

Sain is a sociopathic scientist who views the entire world as experiment fodder or tools. He aligned with the Cult of Asoth purely to fuel his a-moral research methods but has come to actually embrace the faith over the decades. His rivalry with Ion was strong in the early days but he attempted to "win" by seducing the other man... only to fall into something akin to love, or as close as he can come to the feeling. He has no warmth in his heart for others, however, even throwing out their supposed "children" Ion made them (Liberty & Gen). He is uncle to Phaedria and the one responsible for recruiting his sister Esme. He has no tolerance for Vanessa's many failures either.

Sarias
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn & Dahhak | Faction: Legionnaires
Gender: M | Age: 49
Profession: Knight | Class: n/a

A dahhak warrior who had the misfortune to be captured by a transmutation mage, Sarias ended up spliced with parts of Taren (and visa versa). The two bonded over their unique plight and became something like brothers. As a result, Taren helped him get a job in the prestigious Legionnaire order of knights. He works hard, known to be a mellow and level headed type who operates mostly on practicality. Sarias doesn't like to rock the boat, often allowing minor indignities without complaint so long as it keeps things moving. He was once betrothed to Satrina and has an awkward but mending friendship with Kysthari.

Sascha Veridian
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn & Sylph | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 59
Profession: Merchant | Class: Marquise of Sheedan

Sascha is actually a Promathea by birth, however his mother was a Sylph and hardly presentable to the courts. The King, his father, instead granted him a false family lineage and tons of money to live on - which Sascha had gratefully accepted since he prefers to just faff about on his own terms. He is brash, playful and a playboy - though for a time that settled down as he entered a relationship with Felisha. Sadly, the more serious that became the less comfortable he was and eventually he fled. He hasn't been seen in almost ten years. He was close with Janos II.

Satrina
Played by Demica

Species: Dahhak | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: ???
Profession: Assassin & Spy | Class: n/a

A dark, sultry and mischievous devil of a woman - Satrina acts like the succubus she appears to be. She enjoys twisting people up in their own moral hypocrisy and getting people to question who they _really_ are underneath all the polite BS. She has been obsessed with Lucious ever since they first fought each other while she was under the employ of Kallast - the result of which has been the death of two of Lucious' wives now. She was once betrothed to Sarias.

Savarius
Played by Robin

Species: True Dragon | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: ???
Profession: Mage | Class: n/a

Known to most of Aether as Cerrin, he is an ancient True Dragon who was twisted by the destruction of the World Tree. The incident created a wave that drove heroes of the world into madness and evil - an effect that was called "Epitaphs". While evil he committed many terrible crimes, not limited to but including: holding Aether hostage to force the King to nominate him as Royal Advisor, tricking his brother into creating hatchings with him so he could harvest them for parts, stealing people's soul energies and warping slaves he purchased into warlocks. When he was eventually captured by the Champion's League, they were able to remove the taint and resort him but he fled into the skies upon realizing what he had done and has not been seen since.

Scathe Amethyst
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 86
Profession: Reaper | Class: Commander of the Shadow Hunters

As a small child, Scathe was taken by an A'dalis and marked for life before being rescued by the keise. Not yet willing to step out of their shadows, the keise took him in and raised him instead. He became one of their more talented reapers but struggled with the blood corruption inside of him. For a time he was controlled by Kajal, the A'dalis who marked him, but he was later able to break free with help from his friend Janos II. He fell in love with a married woman, Elizabelle, and helped her fake her death to join him among the Shadow Fangs - who later became the Shadow Hunters. He is extremely quiet and ponderous by nature, particularly since the attack left his throat badly damaged in such a way that talking for long periods hurts him.

Shanti Shadowlite
Played by Robin

Species: Phairan | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 39
Profession: Syrian | Class: n/a

Shanti's life was turned upside down the day his elder brother was possessed by archfiend Choroze. He was taken in by the Domaces shortly after his attempt to follow Varna (who had helped raise him) into Aether. While living with them he fell in love with Virgil but the two had to keep things secret since Virgil had children, a wife and a reputation to think of. Eventually the secrets got to Shanti and he took off, but upon his return the fire between him and Virgil was stronger than ever - they not only came out to everyone but even became the first gay couple married in Aether. Shanti is fiery, petulant and moody but able to shift to impish boyish charm on a dime.

Shiki Suppon "The Gate"
Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko | Faction: Servants of Entropy
Gender: M | Age: 63
Profession: Priest | Class: n/a

Even as a child, Shiki was never truly normal. He was born with the power to open a gate into the land of the Oni and Akuma - unleashing untold nightmares when he does so. This power caused him to be locked down by the monks until Mouko took an interest and had him rescued. He initially met Misato this way, but when Misato turned on Mouko it was Kaonashi that Shiki became close to. The two became lovers, though Shiki's repeated inquires about children have been shot down. He is friendly, upbeat, loves fashion and is extremely opinionated - in a sassy, almost womanly, manner. He tends to be the moral voice of reason in the Palace of Entropy.

Shekina Phaira
Played by Robin

Species: Phairan | Faction: Empire of Phaira
Gender: F | Age: 110
Profession: Priestess | Class: Empress of Phaira

The Empress of Phaira, Shekina has always been strong in her faith - enough so that the Heavenly Host often directly respond to her calls. She has been kidnapped by Melchior on many occasions, each of which Varna rescued her from. This led to her falling for Varna and he for her, but given her station versus his they kept things distant. That ended when Melchior created a daughter of the three of them, Akasha, and then Shekina had a fit of isolation/depression that inspired her to create a child for her and Varna, Kaali. Sadly, both girls were taken by Melchior after her and Varna married - Kaali has become his pawn and Akasha was killed to awaken the Ocean Slada'sha. As an Empress she is sharp tongued, intolerant and extremely forceful.

Shoukin Kawazu
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 68
Profession: Shinobi & Priest | Class: Atotori

Shoukin was born with the ability to see the dead, something his master taught him to use for good. His life truly took off when he was assigned to work with Kaida Asa to stop Mouko from ravaging the Land of Dragons. The two fought many monsters, lost many loved ones and eventually came to care for each other. This led to Kaida Asa having to choose between Shoukin and Himitsu - choosing the former. Shoukin is cheerful but sarcastic, optimistic but capable of bearing great suffering for the good of others. He's also a bit devious but tends to reserve that for friends only.

Syria Obscurity
Played by Demica

Species: Keise | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: n/a | Age: 104
Profession: Reaper & Priest | Class: Abraxas

Always the curious cat, Syria grew up with one foot in the realm of theology and the other in being a reaper. It was married to Katreth at a young age and after their kittens (including Don) left the nest the two soured towards one another - especially when one of their kittens, Laurel, turned evil. Seeking a new life after the consequent divorce, Syria found a new future with Charles Hawking. The two got along well and as a result Syria was eventually included in both the Shadow Fangs and the Sky Hunters - their merger making its world MUCH easier. It is patient, fatherly and very wise, often favoring careful planning to rash actions. It has all the qualities of an ideal therapist.

Takeshi
Played by Demica

Species: Ryuko (Corrupted) | Faction: Dawnbringers
Gender: M | Age: 143
Profession: Samurai | Class: Ronin

Takeshi lived his first life as a wild, womanizing, sake swigging general of a gumi called the Emperor's Lightening. He was renown for bringing victory in many difficult battles. Sadly, he caught the attention of Mouko while trying to defend his nephew Tsubasa, and was twisted into a monster for the Scion's efforts against the A'dalis. Twisted as he was, Takeshi didn't want to be alone and converted Tsubasa but the process worked differently that time, making him an undead corpse! Driven away from his nephew by the end result, he took up his other nephew's son: Miki. He raised the boy on the move and the two have a banter-ful friendship as a result. Takeshi is brash, harsh, vindictive and extremely arrogant. He has also dated Tess and Usha before.

Taren Promathea
Played by Robin

Species: Aetherian - Highborn & Dahhak | Faction: Legionnaires
Gender: M | Age: 35
Profession: Knight | Class: Royal Duke

As a mere babe, Taren's life went into chaos. His mother had the misfortune to recognize Nok Proamthea, who demanded the child be given to him and she not be allowed to see it. Terrified, the woman fled and was hunted down, killed for her crimes. Nok decided her name for the babe, Taren, was ill fitting for a royal and changed it to William. When this came to light in his adult years, Taren promptly turned on his father and changed his name back to the one his mother picked. He was close with Nok's wife, Inara, but she died in his arms during an attack.

Species: Aetherian - Lowborn | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 52
Profession: Inventor & Shinobi | Class: n/a

Timothy was adopted by Charles at a young age, raised both as an inventor and as a member of the Sky Hunters - where he used the name Komadori. He was always laid back, easy going and all around a dependable guy, which is probably what drew in Kathleen. However, while the two were dating he also had a strange love-hate thing going with Nikkola. Eventually, however, he and Kathleen did marry. He went missing after the fall of the original Dawnbringer Fortress and hasn't been heard from since.

Played by Robin

Species: Ryuko (Undead) | Faction: n/a
Gender: n/a (Identifies as M) | Age: 60
Profession: Mahotsukai & Shinobi | Class: n/a

Tsubasa was born a sassy, snappy and bitter before he was old enough to earn it Mahotsukai. He was targeted by Mouko, who had fallen in love with him, and abused regularly. Then his uncle Takeshi got involved when Mouko corrupted him, causing his uncle to turn around and corrupt him out of loneliness. The result left him frozen in a state of fleshless undeath. He chased Takeshi for years, bitter and full of hate while trying to save his nephew Miki. However, meeting Janos II changed everything for him - opening him up to the idea he could still be loved and that he actually had feelings for Mouko in return. He spends his free time lingering in Janos' shadow while sipping tea and chit-chatting with Kelase' these days.

Varna Phaira
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Empire of Phaira
Gender: M | Age: 268
Profession: Warrior | Class: Emperor of Phaira

Born with the name Cyrus, Varna took a bad injury while in Phaira that caused him to lose his memories. He was taken in, trained and given a new identity in their kingdom. He eventually rose the ranks enough to be in just the right place to save Shekina the first time Melchior took her - his talents catching her notice and getting him promoted to her personal guard. He was in love with her but unwilling to make a move thanks to their different ranks. He did help her raise the child Melchior created, Akasha. Later, Shekina created a child for _them_ in a fit of depression, Kaali. Both girls were lost to Melchior - Akasha was killed and Kaali was corrupted. As an Emperor he is direct, lacking eloquence but making it for it with efficiency, and extremely brave.

Victor Weissman
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 72
Profession: Seneschal to Lucious | Class: n/a

Victor was born to a comfortable enough life that he could afford to be schooled despite a lack of noble blood. He used that to become a seneschal, attending to the financial and menial paperwork/scheduling tasks for various lords. Eventually he was assigned to the errant Lucious De'Dawning, who he had to wrangle back to his own county to salvage the chaos in it. He is gentle, mother-like and very friendly - but he has that parenting nature where he will quickly turn to scolding people if he feels they are being stupid.

Vincent Proudmoore

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 573
Profession: n/a | Class: Count of Feathermoon & Halconnan

Vincent grew up a hero and a defender of a city. However, his lineage was one that played host to Markavi as a family of living prisons to keep the rogue Dahhak King in check. When he was taken over he did heinous things (including killing Aryanna's family) and as a result he forced himself to forget it all - gaining amnesia. He then spent years as an Apothecary until Aryanna found him again. Eventually his past was revealed, with help from Geralt and Usha. Then they were able to remove Markavi from him with aid from Gaelnaris and Matius. Sadly, the removal of Markavi happened after he and Aryanna married and had a child, Alessa, who appears to have Dahhak in her as a result. Having recently lost Aryanna to mercenaries, Vincent puts all of his energy into ensuring the happiness of his little girl.

Violet Domace
Played by Christine

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: F | Age: 44
Profession: Actress | Class: Viscountess

Violet was raised by Virgil Domace before he ended up with a huge family to care for. She had all the opportunities she could ever want and eventually settled into becoming an actress. Given her flirty, fun and outgoing personality it wasn't shocking that she even slept with (then prince) Chestin - though her attempt to look for more out of that moment was dashed. She works with the Beautie' Gothique at the moment and is a good friend to Fenda.

Virgil Domace
Played by Demica

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Shadow Hunters
Gender: M | Age: 177
Profession: Knight, Instructor & Shinobi | Class: Marquise of Phandaria

Virgil is the last of his parents sons and was pulled from active duty as a knight because of it - much to his ire. He spent years as an instructor of fencing while helping raise Violet. He eventually married sable as a platonic arrangement, who then took in Shanti, Karidee, Kristee and Nicholas over time. Shanti was the one he spent a lot of time with and came to fall for. Unwilling to ruin reputations or drag his family into the mud, Virgil refused to go public which drove Shanti away for a time. When Shanti returned, however, the fire was strong as ever and Virgil was finally willing to not just come out, but to marry Shanti as the first married gay couple in Aether. He is close friends with Christopher Promathea. His personality is very compassionate, fatherly but reserved.

Wayne Van Brea

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: n/a
Gender: M | Age: 92
Profession: Diplomat | Class: Viscount

Always the charmer, Wayne was the personality of the Van Brea brothers - always loving, protective and parental to those around him. He adores his brothers (Issic, Battista, Gillean and Michael) but after Michael's death the family was never the same. His father, Nathon, acted strangely and in a manner that technically cost Michael his life, something that Wayne blames him for. He stepped away from the family, becoming an active diplomat for Aether and throwing everything into his work as a result. He tries to keep tabs on Battista, who he knows is as estranged from the family as he is, but it isn't always feasible.

Wilson McGill

Species: Aetherian - Highborn | Faction: Dahhak
Gender: M | Age: 608
Profession: Knight & Bodyguard | Class: n/a

Wilson is the jealous man who turned on his own family and caused many of their deaths because daddy wasn't paying as much attention to him. The ramifications of this action destroyed his life, forcing him to shack up with criminals and live on the run. Even if he had come to regret his choices he couldn't change them now. He briefly found happiness with a woman named Tabitha, but when she learned the truth of his past she fled with their child and died. The babe, Willow, was left to be raised by Fenda - whom grants his sparse visitation rights. Instead, he fills his days with working for Clive and the dahhak, the only people to give him a place to call home (and thus have earned his loyalty). He also worked for years as Taisie's bodyguard, falling in love with her in the process, but he stays with Clive at the moment.

Witchly Twilight
Played by Robin

Species: Keise | Faction: Dark World
Gender: n/a | Age: 55
Profession: Musician | Class: Archfiend

Practical, sensible and yet energetic in the right company - Witchly was young when it became Archfiend. In the early years there was peace and it found friendship with Janos II and a lover in Alistair during that time. But the A'dalis continued to hound its people, even taking Witchly and torturing it before it was rescued. It is more reserved after the assault, especially now that it has lost so much family, and rules its people from a perspective of preservation instead of victory.

Yunta
Played by Demica

Species: Nazcan | Faction: Empire of Nazca
Gender: M | Age: 65
Profession: Shaman | Class: Emperor of Nazca & High Shaman

Yunta's father was a mad man obsessed with purging the world in fire. Seeing this for what it was, he sought help to bring down his father in Aether and received it. During this time he met Khana, the Emperor's daughter, and the two became lovers. They have worked together to revive their fallen nation ever since, while also multitasking the frustrations of their son's (Xiphil) wanderlust. He is wise but not without the ability to be sardonic at times - one part collected shaman and one part impatient warrior.
