[1600-1633] In 16oo, Ganamede and August first met in the markets of Sutica. At first, they did not notice each other. As it turns out they had been even living across the street from each other. However as time passed they began talking to each other and even began to establish a relationship. Lucky for them, things led to another, and soon they were to be wed. After a few years of happy marriage, the two mali’ker were comfortably settled among the city and began to create a family. The first child being born in the year of 1633, named Vinir.
[1633-1695] Life had taken a new turn for the new parents as they had to relearn their daily lives while raising a young child. Vinir wasn’t the easiest child to bring up. He was known for getting into all sorts of trouble, but he’s parents soon learned to manage him. Around 1638 August found out she was pregnant again, both were excited to bring a new member to their family, but was slightly worried on how Vinir was going to behave with a small child in the house. 1639 came and another boy was born, named Andeosi. Vinir was quite jealous of his baby brother at first, stealing all of this parents attention. He soon grew to love and care for him. Vinir and Andeosi grew close to each other and both grew to love to play sword fight with each other. With that in mind, they planned to work together for the rest of their lives in the military.
[1696-1700] Throughout this tame, many kids came to join the Orothell family with 5 kids in total being born. The kids enjoyed spending time with each other with a few childhood rivalries here and there. They enjoyed each other's company and were being raised through a traditional mali’ker household. However as good as life may have seemed, this all came to an end soon. One day when Vinir was waiting to see the guards walk by at his usual spot by the bank, he noticed that the sun kept going down and down, and no guards where coming in. Vinir finally got tired of waiting for the guards so he headed to the nearest wall access, and climbed up the wall. Only to see that there was a conflict outside that started to gather many people. As Vinir was watching, he heard a man scream in pain out of the middle of the conflict only to then later, see him fall to the ground motionless. Vinir was young, but he still knew something was wrong. He quickly ran to get help at the nearest guard-post he knew of but found them all empty. Vinir kept wandering the city looking for help, but he was to late. He saw the vicious men from outside start pouring in the city, as almost as to save himself, he ran to the nearest dock and dove into the ocean. To Vinir’s knowledge he knew nothing of the monstrosities that came to his family. As he began swimming away, his family was left home at the dinner table awaiting his company at dinner. When there a knock came on the door that they hoped to be Vinir, however it was the raiders that Vinir himself ran from. Upon entering the house, August ran the kids to the back door while her husband Ganamede grabbed the nearest blade to defend himself. After the kids safely escaped the back door and began running to their tree house hiding spot, they soon found out that mother had not come with, but instead went to assist Ganamede. Soon after all the screaming was finished, a cold and brisk rain fell upon the children. With the cold rain coming they soon returned home to find their mother and father. However upon arrival they found the broken door with the cold rain pouring inside. The rain and puddle seeping to the bodies of Ganamede and August. The children were horrified seeing the water and blood fusing, and the steam coming from the bodies of their beloved parents. They even ran to find help from the local doctor, but he too lay dead in his own clinic. From here, the children had to raise themselves and slowly trickled out of the city. When doing this, they lost touch with each other and have to go by themselves through their life. Until one day a local posting went out for the family to be brought back together by the one who fled first, Vinir.
[1700-1727] So far, only three of the family members have united. Those including, Vinir, Andeosi, and their uncle Shuril. They soon began to establish a foothold inside a lovely seaside city called Llyria. Lucky for them, the news of the lively city of Llyria began spreading across all of Arcas, many of the family members even began to make their way towards it. However as some of the family have been scattered about the lands, they slowly trickled in one at a time. The first to arrive was the twin, Andeosi with her brother Tasar. They had been living in the city of Thyra until they too, ventured to Llyria. While these family members have been starting a life in Llyria there is still one more known Orothell missing from the family, Faylen and her unknown daughter Rohsani. Perhaps in the future, the two will find their way to Llyria and the family will once more be united, or so the Orothell’s thought..
[1727-Present] The armies began marching upon Llyria, the home of the Orothell’s. Upon the marching of the armies, the Orothell’s went to help protect the people. However when they realized the doomed fate of the people, mainly humans, they sought to protect, the Orothell’s knew that they should not get involved with this conflict as it does not affect them. Upon the departure of the city, the family became scattered slightly after being forced under the blades of the enemy lines. However three of them, Andeosi, Vinir, and Nilner have found their way together in the city of Irrinor. Here they plan to reinstate the long lost culture of the ‘ker. For those who seek to find them, they can be seen wandering about this beautiful place mingling with the other ‘ker who arrive.
Like many other dark elves, the Orothells are a very common resemblance to an average Mali’ker. They are born with a pearl white color to their hair, while resembling light red, or even green or blue eyes. Once grown, they reach an average height of 6 feet tall and tend to weigh around the 120-130 pounds mark. One unique thing about the Orothell family is the fact that all of the siblings are closely alike in most of their physical features.
Trial of Age
Blue Moon of the Eagle
Father, Ganamede Orothell [Deceased]:
Ganamede was a young and passionate mali’ker at the time he met his to-be wife August. As he was growing up he spent most of his time working the shop that his family had owned. He did this until he finally moved out of the house to a different district in Sutica. Once there he spent time using the skills he obtained from his parents to open his own Blacksmith shop. In his time alive and in marriage, he was known to be a nice aspiring young man. Some would even say that he always had a smile, even till the day that he died.
Mother, August Orothell [Deceased]:
Unlike her partner in marriage, she was rather different. Nobody really said she was lovely or had a big smile on her face, however that did not matter to Ganamede. Luckily for August, she did not really need people to like her for her career path. She spent her time as a member of the local guard, protecting the city at all cost. She would also spend time teaching her kids on the many different ways to defend themselves.
Shuril R'zaman [Active Character]:
Shuril Orothell was raised by a dark elven family, raised with a sister named August. As a boy, he would mainly hover over books and explore the library rather than play with the other children. August was more outgoing and adventurous, and at later ages would push Shuril out of his comfort zone, forcing him to actually be social. Often times, this would cost her friends, as Shuril was...very...socially awkward which was a shell he slowly grew out of as he grew older. He also traveled around as much as he could and had no real home, while his sister August settled in Sutica and made a family with Ganamede Orothell. Eventually, at around the age of 170, he settled in Sutica as well. During this time, he turned down a dark path, the path in pursuit of forbidden knowledge such as necromancy. At one point, he ventured to The Black Sanctum and was away from home for three months. During those three months, his sister was murdered by raiders who pillaged the city of Sutica. Upon finding out of this news, he returned to Sutica, and eventually he viewed himself as a failure. If he hadn’t been pursuing dark knowledge, he could’ve been there to stop them from killing August as well as her children. Eventually, he refused the family name he was born with, afterwards took upon a last name that meant nothing to anyone, a last name he would keep to himself. To him, it symbolized his shame for allowing himself to stray so far from his culture and so far from his morals. From there on, he decided that he wouldn’t pursue black magic for power, and that he would live a virtuous and faithful life, as his sister did while she lived.
Vinir Orothell [Active Character]:
Ah the first child, much like other first children they are supposed to be the responsible one. Luckily for him, he can somewhat do that task. However with all jokes aside, Vinir comes off as a strong and skilled ‘ker. When he reached the age of 45 he had nobody to give him his trial however, he found a love and passion for the military. He has since then served in whatever guard force that he has found himself to be surrounded by. ((https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/182343-vinir-orothell-revised-71719/))
