Ren
"I am so very tired of Casselian poltics. Why do you think I'm a thousand miles away?"

Renelle Vernador, or Ren for short, is half-elven princess from North Cassel. she is a Knight of the Order of the Phoenix. for years now, she has been doing mercenary work far and wide, ignoring the troubles plaguing Cassel. With her martial skill and supreme control over fire magic, she is like a force of nature on the battlefield. Ren doesn't want anything to do with her homeland, but the schism between men and elves is quickly coming to a crisis and there are few others more able to solve the issue than someone born of both.

Personality

Ren was initially an outgoing and energetic girl when she was young and lived in a human kingdom. When she started to live among the elves and she experienced just how terrible some people can be, she became more closed off, reserved, and skeptical of others, especially elves, to the point that she is outright hateful at times.

Currently, Ren can be best described as kind and loyal to her friends. Everyone else she is straightforward and indifferent towards until she knows their motives. She still doesn't care for the elves that much because most elves still have a problem with half-elves even existing. And with the exception of her little sibling Vyerin, she doesn't care for her family, seeing them as fools playing political games with each other.

Physical description

Ren has the thin, graceful appearance of an elf but radiates the defiant confidence of any human. Like many Casselian women, she keeps her hair in a loose braid. Whenever she casts fire magic, her hair glows and seems to flicker like fire. She can stare down anyone with her piercing blue eyes. Her ears are short and pointed, quite a drastic difference from her mother's long, leaf shaped ears. Ren is considered beautiful by human standards, but by elven standards, the delicate scar over her right eye ruins her appearance for many.

Ren's clothing and armor is often quite dull compared to the flashy armors that other knights wear. She doesn't like the elegant gowns and intricate banded armors of the elves, and would rather have much plainer human clothing. She owns several sets of plate armor, but when traveling she normally wears a leather vest and steel shoulder armor. The leather is made from the hide of feral drakes making it similar in strength to steel armors, though its durability is lower and will take much fewer hits. Ren also owns quite a unique skycloak, but usually doesn't use it when traveling.

    Equipment

    Having been a successful knight and mercenary for the last nine years, Ren has acquired many different unique weapons and armors. Some of her most notable items are listed below, but she is said to have an entire arsenal stored at Château des Vagabonds in the Barony of Orthez, enough to equip a small army.

    Rose of Cassel

    Also called the Castle Rose. This legendary sword was given to Renelle by her aunt Laura. It is made of Ruby Gemsteel, allowing Ren to cast extremely powerful fire magic through the blade itself. It was easily her most used weapon, but she lost the sword a few years ago when she tried to invade South Cassel and take vengeance for the death of her father.

    Kren Aurdel
    Legendary Dagger - Kren Aurdel (header).png
    This heavy bronze dagger is rare on the surface of Vreathe, but quite common in the underworld of Feylisa. The dagger has several enchantments that draw melee and ranged weapong to the blade, deflecting all but the most powerful blows. Ren gave this dagger to Vyerin several years ago.
    Drakehide Armor
    Ren has had multiple sets of this armor made over the years. It protects as well as heavier plate armor, but being made of leather, it won't take nearly as many hits before falling apart. Ren has collected hides from slain drakes for years and she has collected a seemingly infinite supply of their hides to turn into armor.

    Sky Cloak

    Ren's prized possession. She recieved this cloak from a Therian named Ithonida during the time that she was in Feylisa. This cloak literally reflects a small portion of the night sky, accurately showing the placement of the planets and stars. The exact mechanism of this enchantment is unknown as there are no obvious aethercite crystals or markings on the cloak.

    The fabric is indestructible and immune to Ren's fire magic, so wearing it doesn't prevent her from going all-out. It can be used to easily hide from elevated positions, but otherwise the cloak doesn't actually have an advantage on the battlefield.


    Old Sword

    Ren's current weapon of choice is a little old and beat up. It isn't a sword of legend nor is it even a special gemsteel sword. No Aethercite crystals adorn the blade. It's just a plain longsword. Using magic weapons hasn't felt right for Ren since an incident she caused a few years ago...

    Aerynn

    Brenon Vernador

    Deceased King of Verdina and Ren's Father. When Brenon had to end his marriage with Eryka, his children Ren, isabel, and Arden were sent away. It was something he always regretted, but he was the ruler of a human kingdom, and the laws of Saint Nora must be followed. When Ren returned to Verdina, it was far too short a time, as only a few months later Brenon was assassinated.


    "... I should've spent the last eight years searching for your killers, but instead I keep taking jobs that take me far from Cassel, to other lands and even other worlds... heh, I don't know anymore which of us is your worst child. We're all terrible!"
    - Ren

    Aria Eryka

    Queen of the Elf-Kingdom of Lyonne and Ren's mother. Eryka is an ambitious elf. Taking advantage of her connections within the rest of of Cassel, she became the youngest Queen of Lyonne ever elected at the age of 420. Her ambitions are all that matters, and even her children are pawns to her. Because of this, Ren hates her mother more than anyone except maybe Eldon.


    "Ambitious, conniving, petty, shrewed, I could go on. I don't know what Isabel sees in mother. There is not a single thing about her that I would consider pleasant. The only nice thing I can say for sure is that under that golden raiment, under that forever regal fascade, somehow there was a woman that once loved my father."
    - Ren

    Isabel Vernador

    Ren's twin sister. Isabel was the opposite of Ren in many ways growing up. She was fine being her mother's political pawn and later became the queen of Ordland because of it. One other significant way she is the opposite to her sister is in her mastery of water magic, which Isabel did on purpose. The two currently aren't on speaking terms because of their mother.


    "Sometimes I wish Arden were right, that our mother's manipulations put me at odds with Isabel, but, I have always hated the way she thought herself superior to us, fully embracing her Elven side. Well, she somehow became the queen of a whole other kingdom, far away from Cassel. Let her stay there and never bother me again!"
    - Ren

    Arden Vernador

    Ren's younger brother. Arden and Ren fought quite a bit growing up. While it appears they hate each other, they just prefer solving their disagreements with a fight instead of words. At least until a few years ago, now the two won't talk to eachother because of an incident in Wrethilin.


    "...What would I even say to my brother if I saw him again? Our last fight was too destructive..."
    - Ren

    Saya Diaz (Vyerin)

    Ren's younger sister. After Brenon was assassinated, Saya ran away and it took Ren several years to find her. Saya has been in a dark place for years now, with guilt over what she did driving her past her breaking point, pushing away her family and identity. Ren gave up trying to bring her back, but makes it a point to track her down and check on her every year or so.


    "Every year when I track down Vyerin, they seem to have a different appearance, but this 'Saya' form seems to be sticking. I suppose this would be cause for celebration, that Vyerin finally found herself! But, she hasn't. She's still running away, from too many things to properly list here..."
    - Ren

    Marla Vernador

    Ren's youngest sister. Due to succession rules and Vyerin's disappearance, Marla was made queen of Verdina at the age of 8, and Eldon was made Regent. Several years later, Marla was killed by Eldon and the Kingdom of North Cassel was fully absorbed into the South. News of this death threw Ren into a rage, causing her to raise an army to avenge Marla's death.


    "And what did me ignoring my father's killers and staying far away from Cassel accomplish? Nothing. I killed vampire lords, stood toe-to-toe with dragons, even fought a god and walked away, but I wasn't there to protect my frail sister from a simple human army ked by a petty king..."
    - Ren

    Eldon Vernador

    Ren's Uncle. Ren thinks Eldon is a coward, a tyrant, and an all around terrible excuse for a king. She does not fully believe Eldon was involved in her father's death, but she cannot forgive him for getting Marla killed.


    "And this is the petty king in question, a pathetic shadow of his former self. My uncle was once a great warrior prince, leading Cassel's armies to victory across Eastern Vreathe. But as a king? The country is in a worse state than it has ever been under his leadership..."
    - Ren

    Larielle Vernador

    Former Queen of West Cassel. Laura was a rebellious girl when she crowned Queen at the age of 13 and forced into a cage of luxury and politics. A little later in life Laura spent some time looking after Ren, who was also somewhat rebellious and running away from a cage of her own.


    "And where are you? Why did you give up your crown and allow Eldon to take West Cassel? You were loved by the people of Baileon and you gave it all up! I wish I knew what you were thinking..."
    - Ren

    Aerynn Vernador

    Ren's cousin. Ren thinks the girl is a fool for trusting her father as much as she does. Ren still feels regret over burning Aerynn the way she did, and is unaware that Aerynn was blessed by a fairy and doesn't have a single burn scar on her body from that incident.


    "Aerynn believes in that bastard father of hers, so much so that she let herself get fried in his place...Foolish girl!

    That's all I have to say."
    - Ren

    Friends

    Ithonida
    Jacare
    Lucia
    Ametista

    Ithonida

    Ithonida is a Therian, a type of Aetheric Dragon. Ren was lost and ready to die when she met her. Ithonida had other plans and led Ren to Feylisa, then spent the next year teaching Ren everything she knew about magic and the universe. To Ren, Ithonida is more of a mother to her than Eryka ever was.


    "After the incident in Wrethilin I tried to make my way back to the Realm of Feylisa. I needed to see Ithonida again. When I entered the cavern entrance in the Olimian Wastes, I ended lost on the branches of Meliheal for two weeks instead... Did I really lose my way that badly?"
    - Ren

    Jacare

    Jacare was a sailor for the Horosha Explorer's Guild and joined a year before Ren did, so the two have known each other for quite a while. Recently Jacare has taken up being a Privateer for the Kingdom of Ledo. Ren hires him to to take her between Vreathe's mainland and the island kingdoms. Jacare is one of the only full-elves that Ren trusts.


    "Is it really that funny that the only two full elves I trust are a pirate and a thief? Jacare and Phoebe might be dishonest for a quick piece of gold, but they aren't liars when it counts! Compare to all other full-elves who never say what they mean and ALWAYS have an ulterior motive when they need you!"
    - Ren

    Lucia

    After Lucia and Ren fought during the Contest of Champions of 2983 I.A, they became close friends and worked together on numerous mercenary contracts in the years since. Ren also helped Lucia hunt down her former master, Acutis Sanguinor, and she is one of the only people that knows Lucia is corrupted with blood magic.


    "So, interesting thing about Lucia that she doesn't mention often... she actually has a husband and a five year-old son. I tried convincing her to settle down and be with her family more often, since some of our missions literally take us to other worlds for months at a time. She says she will only stop the knight life if I stop, which... yeah, that isn't happening anytime soon!"
    - Ren

    Ametista

    Ametista is a halfling and the leader of a thieves guild composed of other halflings and children of various races. They met shortly after Ren ran away from Lyonne and ended up in Tesiadem. Ametista is the only other full-elf that Ren trusts. Ren even knows her real name.


    "I haven't seen Phoebe in about six years. I wonder if she grew up yet, or if she's still stuck as a halfling..."
    - Ren

    Super cool! Love the formatting and the art!

    Jun 15, 2023 23:51

    Thanks!

    What a great idea to show relationships with relatives and friends in this way. I have been hesitant to use the WA functions for relationships because I don't like the layout, but I should think about this formatting.

    Stay imaginative and discover Blue´s Worlds, Elaqitan and Naharin.

    I would be very happy if you would celebrate my SC contributions with me.

    Thank you! I didn't like the built-in relationship stuff either and wanted a better way to present that sort of info. I've redone that section and this article's formatting more times than I care to admit, but I think I finally found something I'm happy with!
