Lady Adina Thycaris
Adina Thycaris knows no fear. Choosing for her headquarters a mountain rumored to be haunted, willing to attack an entire squadron with only her two comrades and her well-used sword, it's no shock that Adina is the most successful rebel ever to wave King Anzora's banner over her enemy's heads. "Adina is like the flames she wears. She burns inside for the justice no one gets in this country. Small wonder that with all that fire on the inside, on the outside she's a little cold." -Corby Estonor about Adina Thycaris

Adina was raised as a wealthy noblewoman. Skilled with the sword and shield, the young Lady Thycaris won her place on the Council at the age of twenty-three, two years before Kyren Anzora took a council seat. Attracted to the commoner's fearless rule-breaking, Adina sided with Anzora in favor of a new government to replace the council. After the monarchy's establishment, Adina, along with another like-minded councillor, Lord Faron Alamar, was invited to join Anzora's court. The pair's political relationship soon blossomed into love in what would be one of the most influential romances of Malceran history. Adina soon took over as one of Anzora's best generals. One of her most important assignments was to liberate a small village from members of the Rogue Band who had been terrorizing it. Adina's attack failed, and she was taken back to the Band's hiding place. While most of the Band argued for her to be put to death, one Rogue Commander, Adamon Blackhold, vetoed the action and assisted Adina in escape. Knowing he could never go back to the Rogues, Adina offered him residence in one of her eastern manors, which he accepted. Adina then returned to the capital. During the Malcera War, Adina proved an invaluable asset to the royal forces and was responsible for winning several key battles. Disaster, however, struck Adina shortly before the war's end in the form of her love, Faron Alamar. The enemy leader, Alton Treadnight, offered Alamar authority and wealth if he was willing to betray the king. Alamar agreed. Two days before the Battle of Talamor, he met Adina after midnight and told her his plans, confessing his love for her and begging her to marry him, joining him in treason against the king. Heartbroken, Adina refused him. Alamar then callously abandoned her. Adina was unable to warn the king of her lover's plans, fearing that he would face execution for his actions. This failure in duty, however, was what Alamar had counted on if Adina refused his proposal. A day later, without knowledge of what had happened, but sensing danger, King Anzora took Adina aside privately and told her of the Ruling and its bringer (though he omitted the fact that the bringer was related to him by blood). He then asked her to sneak out of the city and raise a rebellion in a place where she felt safe, so that the bringer would have somewhere safe to go. Crushed by guilt over her failure to warn the king of her lover's treachery, Adina readily agreed. She left the capital the night before the Battle of Talamor began, taking with her another nobleman, Corby Estonor, and Adamon Blackhold, the Rogue who had saved her. The trio made their way to the legendary Mount Dakan, where they restored the old Mount Dakan Invasion Tunnels as a base of operations. The use of these tunnels led the people of Malcera to believe that Adina was able to "disappear" when on the mountain. The Protectorate enhanced and spread these rumors to discourage people from making the climb to join Adina and her comrades. In the year on Dakan before Kalia Anzora's arrival, Adina worked to build an incredible and frightening reputation. She also developed a network of spies to assist her in her rebel work. One of these spies was Galen Treadnight.
Adina is literate, with a formal education both academically and in combat.
