Var, Warpriest of the Elves
Warpriest Var (She/her)
Since then, the Painters have been disbanded. Var refuses to allow that to stop her, however. As a Painted Person, Var's life is eternal, and her flame has not died since she was a child. She keeps her parent's fervor long after their death.
After 400 years of religious leadership, Var became the leader of the Elven army when the humans revolted. She led a brutal campaign to scare the humans back into captivity, and adapted quickly when that strategy proved deadly for her limited number of warriors. Instead, she began a war of attrition, slowly whittling the human and orc armies until, finally, a peace was driven between the factions.
While she is more than qualified to take the role as leader of the Elves, she refuses to take such a role. She remains the military leader of the Elves.
Recently, her marriage to the Warchief Dolgar of the Orcish tribes has sown the seeds of chaos in the Painted Kingdom, even while cementing the union between the two strongest tribes in the Arengold Forest. She had shown no interest in men or women beforehand. She posits that this is a pure political marriage, and remains in the Painted Kingdom, allowing her husband into her abode only when necessary.
Afterwards, she became a Warpriest, weaving divine magic in order to smite her enemies. Ïllume gladly grants her power, as her art form – light shows – are unique and potent in His eyes. She remains the main Warpriest of the Arengold Forest to this day.

The ChantThe above section includes a short chant. This was imagined by an Elven Actor for a short play based on Var's life. Var despises this play, but most of the chant is accurate.
