Starting Date of OOC : 09-17-2010
The War of the Gods nearly destroyed all life on the planet. It was particularly brutal upon the peoples on the continent of Eras where much of the war was fought. It drove the Dwarven people to extinction and was the beginning of the end for the Race of Elves– who died a long, slow death after the war. It was only through their extraordinary numbers and tenacity that Humans managed to survive, though it took thousands of years to recover their former numbers.
When the Father of the Gods, Tirus, and the Gods who remained loyal to him, beat back their traitorous kin, Tirus imprisoned the 7 Demons in inescapable domains. Afterward Tirus, not wanting to cause another war of such destruction, and the remaining Gods left Eras, thinking that their siblings were trapped for eternity.
That was until Tiernon– known in Eras only as the mythical Elf That Shall Not Be Named and trapped in the Domain of Thoth- found a way to escape the hellish prison. Tiernon was the last of the Elves and now almost completely Demonic himself. In finding a way free he gave Thoth– and thus the rest of the Demon Lords– a chance of escaping their prisons to resume their War for the universe. While the Demon Lord's can not leave their domains yet they have managed to send their many of their minions back to Eras to begin their work and search for the one thing that will free them from torment.
The Book of Demons.
The Book of Demons is wrapped in legend and myth, a source of power from the Gods themselves, though where it is and even whether it exists at all is hotly debated by scholars throughout the known world. But now, with the impending threat of the Demon Lords return, King Spiros of Noelael has no choice but to find a group of capable men and women to attempt a daring mission. It's a race against time, and the Demon Lords, to find the mythical Book of Demons and stop them gaining the power to come back to Eras and finish what they started.
Name: Gwyneira (AKA: "The wander", "The Silver Witch")
Equipment: Gwyn carries a large wooden staff with orb attached to increase her magical powers, but she also carries other gems and rings, each can increase elemental powers, or summon elemental being for a very limited and short while.
She also carries few blank scrolls and ink to write and enchant stuff.
Her most treasured item will be her clan's silver pendant:
Personality: She acts proud and arrogant and tends to jump into actions before fully considering other options. Some, however, know that her behavior serves as self protect. She is actually very kind but she was taught from early age to hide weakness and fear. Aside from that she is very sharp and quick to learn and can pull others to follow her lead.
History: Gwyn belongs to the clan known as "Qumran". To few outsiders the clan is known as the "silver mages order", since their outfits, their gears, and their trademark of Icon is made of silver or has a color to match it. They have strong Sorcerers in their ranks, but they serve only as scouts or spies. The clan is also made out of warriors and simple people.
Gwyn is a bastard daughter of two outsiders, the mother said to be of noble blood. She was raised by people from the clan and she considered them as her parents even after she learned the truth at a very late age (around the time she was 20 years old).
Gwyn always felt different and considered herself special to make up for the fact she was not easy to be liked by others. She always thought destiny had better cards for her to play, and around the age of ten she started to deal with the art of magic and it quickly became a second nature to her and it didn't took long for her to excel in it.
Much later on, around the age of 23, when her powers were at the peak, she was enrolled to the "Mission squad" and started to travel the land as apprentice, but since she was not blood born to the clan, and was very easy to get angry she wasn't fully informed about her work, and wasn't allowed to climb at the ladder of ranks. She hated this, never understanding the full meaning of the education they wished her to have and thought of it as personal hatred.
It was around her 7th and most important job that she decided to change her route in life. After the job was done she decided to have some time alone, never fully getting used to the simple way of her clan's life. They always kept to themselves, never talked much about what they did, and after every mission they would lie down in killing silence.
At the street she came across a fortuneteller. She didn't believe the old woman to actually be able to see her fate, but she was blind and seemed rather a nice person to have some talk with. After drinking tea the woman took her hands and started to speak in a very unusual voice, that almost resemble a male's one. She told her that she would turn her back to everything that was her life until now, and will be needed to head for Noelael to seek her true path in life, since she is one of the chosen.
The idea of a "chosen" was lovely to Gwyn, and on the next morning she parted, never telling her comrades where she was heading or even considering her family's opinion on it. They chased her; some were close at drawing their blades at her but held by the group leader who warned her that should she interfere with their ways that she would not be spared next.
With that in mind she set to meet the king of Noelael, seeking his guidance and offering her aid, as" the betrayer of the Qumran".
