SoP - Raven "Reaver" Thornblood

Agent of the Unseelie Court (Rhiva Dhillon)

Description:

Raven Thornblood

Immortal Elf

Age Indeterminate Sex Male
Height 243.2cm (7’11”) Build 203.36Kg (448lbs)
Nationality British
Description By Elvish standards, Raven is a bear. His overly tall frame carries extra bulk that many of his brethren do not, but it still retains the Nobilis grace and limberness. Wherever skin is showing, there are at least hints of decorative scars. The area of his skin that isn’t scarred is decreasing rapidly.
His gaze is unsettling to most. From his height, to his presence, these alone would put many off. The fact that his eyes are red gemstones simply seals the deal.
His hair is receding from the bottom up as he shaves more for his scarring. The patch on the top of his head is long and a reddish rusty color.

For clothing, he prefers dark reds and blacks, in styles that cover as much as possible with a hood whenever appropriate.

In the Fourth World Bleeding thorns replace the scars, and his clothing always includes a hooded cloak.

Bio:

There is only one memory from his early life.

Pain.

Exquisite pain.

The number of years that lasted is lost in the sands of time, but it was hundreds. Maybe thousands. He has spent thousands of years trying to find that magnificent level of pain again. Either in himself, or causing it in others.

He has not succeeded yet.

He was born in the Wyrm Wood. None know of it anymore. It was changed some years after his birth to become the Blood Wood. None know of that anymore either.

The memories of his master are easier to remember. Mostly because he interacts with her often. Sometimes even in the flesh. She was the one who gifted him with his eyes, and his spine. Ever since that ritual, he can hear her talk to him in his head.

For Rhiva, he is soldier, assassin, occasional bodyguard, and Reaver. Her Will, is his will. She allows him much freedoms though, as long as it does not interfere with her wishes. And there is much to be enjoyed. There are pleasures of the flesh that are as fun as the pain.

At some point, his Thorns fell out of favor. Another useless date lost to the sands of time. Since then, he has changed to ritually scarring himself. Along with a cutting to start the day, to remind him of that pain.

There is much of his past written down. Rhiva commands it of him. At one point there were volumes of handwritten books. Then came the printing press, and he moved all of that to printed books. Now, things are stored on devices. Computers people of this day call them. His entire library has been reduced to one device smaller than a travelling notebook from long ago.

Excerpts from my personal library:

- I was born 928 TH to Amedee and Mi’tilarro Liara, members of the Shel Eollor, as Jhaartael. – The location is not recorded as the Shel Eollor is an Elven military that is charged with patrolling around the Wyrm Wood.

- My brother Jhaan, the youngest of us, was ravaged by a Horror, losing his mind.
- I lost touch with Kieran, the second youngest brother, after the Blood Wood was reopened.
- Our only sister, Naesala, is very dear to me. She has had a very tumultuous life of political intrigue. She spent time imprisoned for speaking against a political rival. Current whereabouts are unknown.
- Zeno is our eldest. He was born from a union of our father Mi’tilarro, and some unknown woman. It is suspected that she was a military whore.

- From 1267 TH to 1277 TH I spent my time studying at the Scakga Academy of Higher Learning. I found that studying while under the influence of The Ritual of Thorns to be challenging and very rewarding.

- 1389 TH my first in a series of successful investments has paid off.

- In 1430 TH, I was approached by Ehrendil Glynsatra of the Seelie Court. When her lover, Iolrath Elmaris is murdered, she blames me. Shortly after, I am approached by my To-be-master, Rhiva Dhillon.

- My next great investment pays off in 1458 TH when the Free Trade Compact is signed.

- I was mortally wounded by Thais, a Horror infested Elf during the Death Rebellion of Throal in 1484 TH. We become terrible rivals. It was here that my master Rhiva Dhillon gifted me with my Blood Crystal Eyes and Blood Crystal Spine to replace my damaged body. Ever since then, I can hear Rhiva in my mind.
