Larthesiul is an immortal who serves the Court of Thasenare. Although he is a talented healer, his lack of fighting skill means that he holds a low rank.
Larthesiul is thoughtful, reserved and even-tempered. Much of his time is spent alone in his Citadel, which stands in the midst of the Ashen Desert. Although he can play fine music and compose poetry, what he most loves is collecting books written by the greatest minds in Udaris, for he thinks mortals and Ankaykari have much to learn from each other.
Larthesiul wants to see reform come to the realm, but he thinks the changes must come slowly. Like his close friend Erulorian, he feels that the Ankaykari have no right to impose their rule upon humankind when they are so lacking in wisdom themselves. If the immortals want to help the world, he thinks they should do it through the preservation and sharing of knowledge.
Court: Larthesiul serves Yazelern, the Lord of Thasenare. He does not truly fit in with the other Thasenareans, for they love to dress lavishly and hold opulent banquets, while he is shy and aloof, and favors somber attire. Despite this, he considers Yazelern a wise and reasonable ruler, and there is no one he would rather serve.
Lady Liralian’s philosophy greatly appeals to Larthesiul, and he has always encouraged Yazelern to strengthen his ties with the Court of Barezeth. Many people think Barezeth would suit his nature better than Thasenare, and he knows Erulorian would love him to join her court.
However, even if Larthesiul was tempted to follow Liralian – an Esu who is too impetuous, in his opinion – he thinks such ‘treachery’ would be a poor way to repay the kindness Yazelern has shown him.
Home: Larthsiul dwells in the cold ‘Ashen Desert’ of Anosharen. His Citadel is called Onranduruth.
Interests / Pastimes: Larthesiul likes to feel that his time is being spent in a worthwhile and productive manner. He can usually be found studying medicine, writing histories, or helping Yazelern to govern the mundane kingdom of Arunisa. When he wishes to relax, he plays the harpsichord.
Friends: Larthesiul’s dearest friend is Erulorian. They have much in common, not only in temperament, but in their interests and values. Her companionship is soothing to him and he sees much wisdom in her words. Larthesiul also likes Iruzathe, another thoughtful, gentle-natured Nayusuru who shares his respect for mortalkind.
While Larthesiul feels loyal to his fellow servants of Thasenare, his relationship with them is more strained. They like to tease him about his drab appearance, which annoys him. He finds Olemnashial bewilderingly frivolous and he does not approve of Arellesria’s ambitious scheming – especially when she tried to drag him into her plots.
Mortal Consort: In 1415 EA, Larthesiul fell in love with Sesra, a female physician who lived in Danyubao. They were very happy together for a few years, but after Larthesiul was captured in battle by Zakrusepi’s forces, Sesra fled back to the mundane world in grief.
Offspring: Larthesiul has a daughter called Danira. She was raised in the mundane world, and it was many years before they were reunited. Some people consider Danira weak and pathetic, but Larthesiul is very proud of her.
