Tiefling Invoker (Arc 1), Necromancer (Arc 2)
HistoryAralove Grimnas is the third offspring of Tessia Grimnas, preceded by twin brothers Malchus and Vallus. She is three years their junior. During her childhood, Aralove was protected by her brothers and shielded from the detritus that is the underbelly of Brightport. Only after Malchus and Vallus had both left her would she learn the harsh realities of life in a city built on lies, violence, and debauchery where justice is thing of dreams and fantasy.

Aralove would also leave Brightport to see the world beyond the gates. She found herself in the Overwatch as part of an up and coming special unit called the Crimson Shield. Little did she know, the day she joined would effectively be the last day that the Shield existed. Upon being summoned to Commander Grace's office, Jadzia became defensive and the other members of the group dubious of her non-human presence. The first and most pressing mission, rescue Una from the elves and finish the destruction of the titan elite unit saw the squad dissolve. Una attempted to stop the group from assaulting the elves and in the proceeding fight with Gavin, defected from the army and Overwatch. Fie and Jadzia also left, finding Una's side easier to stomach than suicide. The remaining members, Gavin, Aralove and Marcus along with a contingent of the soldiers in training resumed their march towards the titan unit. The next minutes saw Gavin commit suicide to complete the mission but commanding the rest of the soldiers to turn back. Aralove and Marcus did so, returning to the city and being assigned to fight in the Tournament of Champions. In the tournament, Poe Tutillo, Rodswell Joybottom, and Flo Lar'va were added to the team against their wills. In the third round, pitted against a group of Mul Nu'Val gladiators. Their leader struck Aralove down before dying himself. Rodswell resurrected Aralove after the fighting was finished. Shortly after, a new mission was assigned. Aralove and new member Mason Darktree were already beginning to have misgivings and, after Flo and Commander Grace were hanged as traitors, also defected after a half-hearted assault on the White Ravens headquarters. Two weeks later Aralove turned up in Fairbay and joined a new team. This one, significantly less racist or warmongering. Aralove would find a family with these new people, bonding with Khoury, Daegon, Braylon, Acteronis, and Kalden, who arrived later. Their journey would take them to Odysia, where they rescued Briahna and Craig Mason. They found an Eladrin ship at the docks, the Alu'Yaanda and commandeered it. They sailed toward the Yemgar Swamp to speak with The Witch , which they did. Khoury was given some bad news and rushed into the swamp. Naturally everyone followed. They managed to convince her to stay and continued toward the Evergreen on foot. After spending the night in a variety of caves, Briahna opened a gate that led them to Esterholt just in time to see Jadzia and Vallus' wedding. The group found that the others at the wedding had similar goals in going back to the Witch as well as collecting their ship. They flew back on Amarah, trekked back to the Witch's cabin and learned of a world changing development that would cement each of them in the history of Theria. Over the next 2 months, Aralove and her friends would sail to the Ashen Sea and nearly die by wrecking the ship on icebergs, fight a purple worm, free Aubrey from the threat of vampires and eventually return to Aralove's home in Brightport. They would be threatened into taking extra crew and cargo on the ship by the Black Hand as they sailed to Ta'lor to find the eladrin. They survived a massive storm with the help of the additional crew but afterwards discovered that the cargo was guarded by demons. With the demon threat revealed and the cargo, the legendary axe Stormrender, on board, they recruited two of the Black Hand's crew to their side. While trying to recruit Leon, the last of the Black Hand's non-demon crew and Braylon's brother, he fired a crossbow aimed for Krea but Aralove stepped in to take the hit. She was killed in the process but Khoury quickly resurrected her with the scroll she got from Marrek in the library. The party made their way to Ta'lor and found the eladrin hidden deep within a mountain. They were frozen in stasis, and could only be saved by a psion sacrificing themselves at the great seal on Ki'an. Aralove watched as her friend Daegon said his goodbyes and stepped up to perform the ritual and free his people, but he was saved that fate by Briahna Ebelmare. The assembled heroes made their way back to the mainland where they scattered to the wind...the gods released.
