The Valkyron Brothers, Valin and Kyros, are the current leaders of the Cloudrest and the Valkyron. Named by their parents, the former rulers of the kingdom, each is an embodiment of their namesake people.
Valin is six feet tall, with fair skin, white shoulder-length hair, and piercing, ice-blue eyes. His massive, white, feathered wings rest folded against the back of his lithe body with well-defined muscle, adding even more strength to his already intimidating presence. This, along with the way he carries himself, generates an aura demanding respect from those who encounter him.
He wears a beautiful tunic of soft white wool, embroidered with enchanted golden thread, buckled with a golden belt. From it hangs a beautiful Valkyron Steel hunting sword with a circular silver guard, a black leather-wrapped grip bound with golden wire, and a pommel in the shape of a golden eagle head with emerald eyes, kept in an ornate white and gold scabbard. His trousers are soft, warm, blue wool, tucked into white leather boots gilded with gold.
In battle, he wears an ornate golden brigandine cuirass emblazoned with the symbol of a winged, angelic figure in front of the Sun, and pauldrons with plates of Valkyron Steel, worn over a soft and luxurious arming doublet with shining scale armor, resembling feathers, sewn into the arms. The armor hangs to the knees, protecting the upper legs and covering the top of his pure white gambeson pants. Covering his calves and shins are shining plate greaves, polished to a mirror finish and gilded with gold, his gauntlets following the same pattern with golden knuckles on each finger. He carries a Valkyron Steel rotella on his left arm, polished to a mirror finish, and a shining silver winged helmet with a golden crown adorns his head.
Kyros is a towering, monstrous Kyra. Nearly eight feet tall with a light grey-skinned body of rippling muscle, he towers over and intimidates even other Kyra. He wears a thick, pitch-black woolen tunic, embroidered with an enchanted silver thread that glows faintly, reminiscent of the light of the moon. His tunic is fastened at the waist with a dark leather belt with a faintly glowing silver buckle made to look like the moon. His trousers are strong grey denim, tucked into metal-plated leather boots. He wears no gloves on day-to-day business, preferring his hands and claws bare. At first glance, he seems to be wearing a black leather cloak, but upon a second look, one will realize that it is, in fact, his wings, wrapped around his shoulders.
When he leads his elite Kyra shock troops to battle, he wears a dulled grey Valkyron Steel half-plate cuirass, etched with the image of the full moon impaled on a sword, over lamellar plates of the same, sewn into supple black leather with spaces in the back to allow him to spread his massive wings. Smooth steel pauldrons and a thick gorget protect his neck and shoulders, spiked gauntlets protect his hands, with the fingertips shaped into claws to cover and extend his own, and an ornate bascinet with a high black mohawk and twisted, fanged faceplate sits atop his head, covering his own mohawk. Plated faulds protect his hips, covering the top of his Valkyron Steel mail chausses, tucked into greaves fashioned into long claws at the toe, with spikes protruding from the knee plates. Fastened to his waist are two terrifying long deer horn knives. Hanging at his right hip is a brutal looking morningstar with a much longer spike at the top, and on his left hip sits a wicked shotel in the shape of the crescent moon.
