Ikran - Ceciderunt Dea - Seraphina's Pilgrimage Roleplay Primer:
Caelestine - Seraphina, the orphaned adoptive daughter of the Seraphim Galric Lunasdei is set to begin her pilgrimage to receive her wings. Her friend, the Blind Seer has hired her friend and fellow survivor of Kanas, the mercenary Novaus, to escort the young Caelestine on her trip to the Featherkeeper at the Blades Rim Caldera. The adventure will pass through the Cruentai Capital of Ferrocor and a short portion of the northern territories of the Dalimos Empire where Caelestine Pilgrims are granted protection by treaty.
The current prince of the Caelestine is Anderine, age 20. There have been rumors circulating about a potential relationship between him and Seraphina.
Kanas: 10 years prior, a sanctuary port city along the Dalimos and Cruentai border named Kanas was destroyed by the chaotic Hellfires. According to witness accounts and a Special Dalimos Enforcement Detachment; it was by a Dark Angel named Dyeiraniuce. Dyeiraniuce has not been positively identified in any events since the incident. The number of survivors of the incident is very limited; confirmed survivors number only 37, the majority of them are heavily scarred by the mysterious Hellfires, often with varied side-effects; the two most well known of the survivors are the Blind Seer and Novaus. Notable victims were the Seraphim Galric, and the Rogue of Angels, Zeknif. To this day, the ruins smolder from eternal cinders; a side effect of Hellfires.
The Portal: 15 years ago, the opening of the portal in Keranlus has strained relations between the Dalimos and the Caelestine, resulting in a joint jursidiction over the portal and opening of a Trade Route from the Nexulai portal in Keranlus and to Dalimos through Cruentai Territory. Trade is strictly monitored by both sides to prevent either power from trading for war materials.
The hiring of mercenaries and craftsmen from Nexulai is being experimented with by the Dalimos and Caelestine in limited number, but there are new worries of other portals opening that may create an imbalance of power or introduce other destabilizing factions to Ceciderunt Dea.
Important Supporting Characters:
Blind Seer - Caelestine - Age 18 - A Blonde haired angel with slender silver wings, and a survivor of the Saccing of Kanas; her eyes were burned from their sockets by the hellfires and has to wear enchanted bandages over her eyes and a portion of her face to subdue the pain the magical injury still causes her. Her father was Zeknif, the Rogue of Angels who was also close to the Caelestine King and the served as the patron Angel of the the Sanctuary City of Kana, and subsequently perished in the flames of Dyeiraniuce. The injuries robbed her the ability to see in the traditional sense, but it is made up for by her ability to see the souls and spirits of the living and the dead and even aged artifacts. She can glean some information from what she sees in the souls of others but it is not to be equated to mind reading. She spends most her time in the Aviary, however she does represent the interests of the Caelestine Government when negotiating more important treaties in Nexulai.
Novaus (True Name Unknown)- Human - Age: Unknown, suspected to being around 30 - Jet Black haired survivor of Kanas, he is the most mysterious. While the Blind Seer is apparently aware of his true identity; but no one else is. Most his face, including his right eye, are covered in enchanted bandaging similar to the Blind Seer's except black in color. He wears loose fitting black clothing most of the time. A mercenary who is highly skilled in the use of several swords, he keeps three on him at most times; a claymore sheethed on his back, a long curved sword and a rapier sheethed on his left hip. He keeps a short dagger sheethed on his right wrist for defensive use. He is highly protective of the Blind Seer and other Kanasian survivors.
Elise Unbrek - Dalimos - Age 137, Physically equivalent to 30-35 - A winged and hoofed demon of the Supercian Tribe; she is Dalimos representative to Nexulai and ranking officer of the Dalimos Garrison in Keranlus. Charismatic in her dealings with others, carrying an air of nobility in her mannerisms, she is nonetheless a strong and skilled combatant, favoring a claymore and heavy wall shield as her primary armament. She often challenges the Caelestine and visiting mercenaries at Keranlus to friendly duels.
Selinas Unbrek - Dalimos - Age 85, Physically equivalent to 20-25 - A winged Demon of the Volupitan clan and younger sister of Elise Unbrek. Considered one of the great beauties of the Dalimos, she is also quite charming and serves as Dalimos Ambassador to the Caelestine and to the City of Nexulai at the Keranlus Diplomatic Outpost.
