Yephasure

The immortal Lady YephasureYephasure is an immortal who serves the Court of Nezruthar. She has been at Lord Takanepi’s side since time immemorial, silently moving through the gatherings of the Ankaykari and telling him of everything that happens in the realm.

Although Yephasure keeps her skills concealed, she is dangerous when riled, and holds the highest rank among Takanepi’s followers. Her enemies tend to underestimate her subtlety. The other immortals consider her mysterious. They say that she is a great enchantress, seer and weaver of illusions.

Yephasure loves mysteries and intrigues, and often visits Udaris in disguise. She seems quiet, but she is deeply curious about the world, and has gathered much knowledge over the millennia. While she appears dreamy and whimsical, she can be relentless in pursing her latest ambition – whether that is learning a new language or bringing down an empire.


Race: Ankaykari

Status: Nayusuru

Court: Yephasure serves Lord Takanepi of Nezruthar. She does not bother to tell him all of her plans, for she knows that he is not interested in intrigues, but she always works to further his aims.

Home: Yephasure dwells in the beautiful, forested land of Velsamere. Beyond the Court of Nezruthar, very few people have seen her Citadel, Iusurel. According to legend, it has never been found by Nezruthar’s enemies, and has therefore never been stormed.

Interests / Pastimes: Yephasure loves gathering knowledge, and has many interests that change over the years – sometimes she is fascinated by herbs and potions, sometimes she is studying astronomy, and sometimes she is collecting weapons from across Udaris. Among her most enduring interests are myths and languages.

Dislikes: Yephasure dislikes hierarchy and elaborate court etiquette, and tends to be hostile towards the Esu of other lands. Over the years she has seen so many people crushed by the powerful. To Yephasure, the Court of Imbire feels like a natural enemy.

Friends: Yephasure has been alone in the Court of Nezruthar for a long time, but once she had Vusashare and Olemnashial as companions. The three were very close, sharing a love of art and subtle plots, but they have since become estranged, for Vusashare was captured in battle and Olemnashial joined another court.

Yephasure still sometimes speaks with Olemnashial, although her old friend does not have much time for her anymore. She sees how Vusashare has been crushed by life in Imbire, but she knows better than to ask him to leave, for he has no courage to defy the Esu.

During the Sovereignty of Shekruvaris, Takanepi welcomed Carashanza and Quenezarea into his court. Yephasure gets on well enough with Quenezarea, who is quiet and artistic like herself. She is not so fond of Carashanza, for she considers her blunt and arrogant, and is riled by her lack of respect for Takanepi. However, they are willing to work together when they must.
