The immortal lady ArellesriaArellesria is an immortal who serves the Court of Thasenare. She is a great dancer and musician, and is known throughout the realm for her charm. However, beneath her smile lies a scheming mind and an ambitious heart.

Arellesria is always plotting to enhance the standing of her court, whether it is through intrigue, forming alliances or by winning prestige. While she is most proud of her artistic accomplishments, she understand that the greatest power is gained through victory in battle, and she keeps her combat skills finely honed.

Arellesria has a temper, but she can conceal it when the need arises. She closely studies the shifting Nayusuru hierarchy to discern who might be most useful to her and who can be safely dismissed. When she wants to destroy her enemies, it is usually through catty remarks or gossip.

Race: Ankaykari

Status: Nayusuru

Court: Arellesria serves Yazelern, the Lord of Thasenare. They have much in common, for they are both famed for their charm and grace, they love the arts, and they understand the importance of appearances. The banquets they hold are the finest in the realm.

Over the years, the pair have formed a deep and loving bond. Arellesria is at her most genuine when she is with Yazelern, for she does not feel the need to conceal her feelings from him.

Home: Arellesria dwells in Serunuria, a land of beautiful forests and flowery meadows. Her Citadel is called Oamsarath.

Interests / Pastimes: When she is not thinking about politics, Arellesria likes reading poetry, designing gowns and baking cakes for her friends. She loves it when people bring her new ingredients that she can use in her cooking.

Friends: Arellesria has many friends among the Nayusuru, including Esephrul, who is always happy to share gossip, and Drathessa, whose high status makes her useful even if she can be cantankerous. Even Kurunari and Xanuspari are not immune to her honeyed words.

Arellesria’s truest friendships are with Olemnashial and Larthesiul, the Nayusuru of her own court. She is very fond of them both – especially Olemnashial, who shares her love of music and dancing, lavish banquets and beautiful garments – but she also feels dismayed by their lack of ambition.

Enemies: Arellesria feels a mild contempt for those who do nothing to advance themselves. In particular, she dislikes Erulorian, whom she considers irritatingly bland. She often tries to provoke her into an argument by expressing her disdain for the Court of Barezeth, but Erulorian refuses fight back, even with words.
