Table of Contents

Ezi Airu (a.k.a. Lienesreda)

A legendary entertainer notorious for seducing men and women alike.

Physical Description

Body Features

Through the ages they have always been portrayed as exceptionally beautiful. Depictions vary according to the respective society's ideals, but are generally in line with Rilanga beauty standards. However, one feature that is always present are strikingly green eyes which were rather atypical for this phenotype.

Physical quirks

Although historians are certain that Airu was indeed a real person, no-one knows for certain whether Airu was female or male. The fact that their partners considered them to be whatever was compatible with their own preferences has given rise to various theories.   One ever-popular theory is that Airu was a light witch and therefore able to adapt their physical body to the tastes and requirements of the person they were seducing.   Another theory suggests that Airu was actually a pair of twins. However, this is widely dismissed because their family's standing made it unlikely that the existence of a twin had been kept secret.   The most scientifically-sound explanation seems to be that Airu was intersex.

Apparel & Accessories

They are usually depicted as wearing loose-fitting clothing of soft flowing fabrics.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

The Ezi family were rich traders from Un Raopigali, specializing in the export of Leokolin Silk. Airu was an only child and grew up in luxury. However, as a young adult Airu was drawn to the colorful lifestyle in Un Sidiesba where they lived for the rest of their life.

Gender Identity





They were well-educated and knowledgeable about the world, with a tendency to pick up all sorts of information through meeting countless people from all walks of life.


Most stories portray Airu as a dancer in a noble piklisemi, a leisure venue where upper-class people meet to enjoy good food and entertainment. All accounts agree that they preferred this lifestyle to their parents' trade business, which was eventually handed over to Airu's cousin.

Personality Characteristics


Airu is described as having an insatiable drive to enjoy life, which involved everything from fine cuisine to various forms of art and social encounters.

Virtues & Personality perks

Many accounts stress Airu's passionate yet gentle nature and their readiness to listen to people's problems. Although they spent most of their time among the rich and powerful, there are also numerous stories which have them approach common folk on the street and invite them into their world.

Vices & Personality flaws

They were notorious for having sexual encounters with a large number of different people - a lifestyle that was frowned upon in both Leokola and Rilanga society. Similarly, the idea that many of these appeared to be same-sex relationships ruffled a lot of people's feathers.


Family Ties

It is unknown whether Airu had any children, but it is highly likely. Several of their lovers have claimed to be mothers or fathers of such children. However, given that Airu's own sex is unknown, these claims are nearly impossible to confirm.

Social Aptitude

Their charisma and flirtative behavior earned them the nickname "Lienesreda", literally "the Charmer". Most stories depict Airu as irresistably attractive, although there do seem to have been some people who rejected their advances. Nevertheless, this is never shown to have dampened Airu's confidence.

Author's Notes

So this is my attempt at Ranul's most notorious romancer. I've got some more ideas that I'll probably put in a secret some day, but for now this should do. I'll tackle the "pleasure town" prompt with Un Sidiesba next, but then I guess that's all for this Summer Camp.   Anyway, what do you think of this character?

I really like Airu. I enjoy that there is a lot of mystery surrounding them, as well as many people who claim to be their children. I like reading about confident folk, particularly those who flout whatever norms there are in their society.

Thank you very much! ^^ I'm happy that you like Airu's characterization and the mysteries surrounding them. And I agree - I love those free spirits, too. I think characters like that are quite helpful as rolemodels, hopefully some of that confidence will rub off on awkward nerds like me. ;)
