Character Name: Toinore Helyanwe

Sex: Male

Age: Approx. 4570

Race: Elf

Appearance: Tall - standing at 6'8"and well built, Toinore towers over most. His hair is white, falls to the small of his back and usually worn in a half-ponytail, the rest left out long. His skin is lightly tanned, a skin tone that is common to many Kaenarii elves. His left eye is dark green with a slit pupil, while his right eye was removed and has a black eye-shaped marking in its place. There are other black markings around both eyes.

Biography: The younger twin brother of Theodosius Helyanwe. After leaving a career in the military, he received the position of Minister of Defense in Queen Aria's cabinet. When Romuald came to power, he was allowed to keep his position. Over the next few years, Toinore had carefully and quietly searched within the government to find other members who were still loyal to the late Queen. It was these Loyalists who formed the beginnings of the Resistance. Even now, several years after the New Order was established, Toinore still seeks members, broadening his scope into the wider public.

Character Name: Theodosius Helyanwe

Sex: Male

Age: Approx. 4570

Race: Elf

Appearance: Similar in height and build as his younger twin. His skin tone and eye color are also similar, however the markings around his eyes are different and he has a scar over his left eye. His hair is long and black, and most often worn in a ponytail.

Biography: The elder of the two Helyanwe twins. A businessman and philanthropist, Theo is a supporter of the arts, however he had to cease when the new laws were established. A few years after the New Order came to power, Theo's life changed when he chose to adopt a Human girl - Andorra Jonas - who he found alone on the street. She would be better off living with him than being put in one of the orphanages where the conditions are rather poor. Being a member of the Resistance along with his brother, Theo is against the now-adult Andy joining the Resistance, knowing that she would be putting herself at risk.

Character Name: Lindori Rei

Sex: Female

Age: Approx. 4230

Race: Elf

Appearance: Approximately 6 feet in height. Lin has long blond hair with a slight wave. Her eyes are white and pupil-less, but are full of expression.

Biography: The younger sister of businessman Orion Rei, she left home to in order to find work and to get away from the pressures her brother was putting on her to wed. She chose to live with her friend and brother-in-law, Tobias Rolodhen, where she helps him as a research assistant and does some of the housekeeping. When the new laws were imposed shortly after the coup, Lin and Tobias agreed that she would continue to live with him, despite other social pressures that arose during the establishment of Romuald's New Order - they were family after all. Lin remains in contact with Orion and his wife, as they are in charge of their local resistance movement, and are working in cooperation with the main resistance movement in Irelia.

Character Name: Tobias Rolodhen

Sex: Male

Age: Approx. 4230

Race: Elf/Vampire

Appearance: Stands at 6'6" and has a slender build. He is deathly pale as a result of his condition, but he can go out in the sun. Tobe's eyes are pale blue in color and are covered by a pair of glasses on occasion (mostly when he's reading). His hair is short, bangs parted to the right and a distinct dark red/brown color.

Biography: An Elf-turned-Vampire, Tobias was disowned by his parents upon learning that he was Turned. As someone who loves books and learning (and is of high intelligence), he worked as a history professor at the university in Irelia. However, he lost this job when the New Order was established, and instead of applying for a new job, chose to work as an inventor in his own home, with the help of Lindori. This has caused some suspicion among the new government, but so far they have managed to evade persecution using the cover of a watch repair shop. While Tobe does not remain in contact with the majority of the members of his family, he does remain in contact with his older sister Kyara, who is also his confidante.

Character Name: Maike (Mikel) Lithvir

Sex: Female (Male)

Age: Approx. 3200

Race: Elf

Appearance: Maike stands at about 5'8" and has slightly lighter skin compared to most Kaenarii Elves. She has black shoulder-length hair that she usually wears in a pony tail, black eyes and black markings around her eyes that she usually covers up with makeup. Mai is generally seen wearing men's clothing. While it is hidden most of the time, the number "36159" is crudely tattooed on the inside of her left forearm.

Biography: Mai was living on her own in Irelia when Romuald had come to power. Shortly after, she chose to hide her identity, dressing as a man and assuming the name Mikel. One evening Mai was arrested and wrongfully convicted of murder by the Peace Keepers.

Reluctantly, this task was fulfilled and Mai was pardoned for her "crime" and offered a position as a codebreaker for the Peace Keepers.

Character: Andorra (Andy) Jonas

Sex: Female

Age: 24

Race: Human

Appearance: Andorra is five feet four inches tall,and skinny with long blond hair she usually keeps braided and out of her face. She is a tomboy, more often dressed and mens shirts, pants and boots than not. Her eyes are bright green, her skin pale, her facial features rather soft.

Biography: Andy was 4 when her family died. They were the victims of the "Peace Keeper" raids, searching for art, instruments, books, Illegals, and whatnot. Andy has only vague memories of her family – her mother, father, and ten year old brother, and the most vivid is of the night they died. She can remember her father stuffing her into a small hidden room beneath the stairs that she hadn't known existed and yelling at her to stay put. Then she mostly remembers the noises, the yelling and crying. The thudding of the "Peace Keepers" boots, and eventually the sounds that led to her family's death. Andy had waited for a very long time – what had felt like days to such a young child but had actually been only two hours - before leaving the room. There had been a trail of red in the living room leading out the front door but no sign of her family. Young Andy had followed until the rain began to fall and washed away the trail, leaving her alone in the middle of Irelia, lost and alone, until an Elf found her crying. That was the day Andy had gone to live with Theodosius Helyanwe. But it would be almost twenty years before she discovered and joined the resistance, despite his protests.

Character: Liam Royden

Sex: Male

Age: 24

Race: Human

Appearance: Liam was just over six feet tall. His skin was tanned, his shoulders wide, his hair chin-length and black and his eyes cold and gray. His clothes are often dirt encrusted and riddled with small holes from moths or mice. Most often, he wears brown vests embroidered with bronze thread over white, long sleeved shirts that tuck into his black pants. He wears brown boots that have been battered over time as much as his clothes. When the weather is rough, he'll wear a brown frock coat and brown Tudor bonnet with a bronze tassel.

Biography: Liam is the oldest of four children, two brothers and one sister. He comes from a long line of doctors who, until the coup, were quite lucrative. When Romauld allocated the amount of each job, Liam's father lost his. However, his father continued to practice and aid the sick and injured in secret. The "Peace Keepers" somehow got wind of his fathers activities and made an example of him. As a result, Liam was left to take care of his mother and siblings. In the years that followed, his mother fell ill and was refused care by the Keepers. His brother Benjamin, the second eldest, was killed for plotting against the government. His brother married a diplomats daughter, openly supportive of Romauld and his men. Now Liam lives in what remains of his families manor, illegally practicing medicine as his father had, working as a cooks aide at one of the taverns, and taking care of his 13 year old sister Amelia.

Character: Toni Royden

Sex: Male

Age: 27

Race: Human

Appearance: Toni stands at six feet tall. His skin is lighter than his brothers, his shoulders wide, his hair shaved and black and his eyes cold and gray. His clothes are expensive, well cared for and numerous in amount.

Biography: Toni is Liam's younger brother, the now middle child since Benjamin's death, but his family is rarely a topic of conversation. Toni married Gerald Girth's youngest daughter Miriam a few years after their fathers death. He married into money and Lord Romualds good draces. Gerald Girth worked closely with Toinore Helyanwe's defense department as head of the local Peace Keepers. Toni himself worked in the center of the town as a codebreaker for his father in law. It took him some time to gain the trust of Mr. Girth. His father and brother both died as open rebels and Liam, who never announced a side, was still looked at with much suspicion. Toni still walked on eggshells at work and around his family - with his family history it would be all too easy to brand him a rebel. But at least the accusing stares had finally stopped.

Character: Enelya Helios

Sex: Female

Age: 3531

Race: Elf

Appearance: Enelya stands just below 5'9". Her long black hair she keeps tied up most days. She wears plain, functional dresses.

Biography: Enelya guards her history closely. She's held many jobs in her lifetime and lived many places. When the New Order was imposed, Enelya was visiting the city, gathering a shipment of books for her brothers store. Caught in an awkward situation, Enelya was forced to find means. She now owns a bar near the center of town that she uses to conceal her real business - smuggling art, literature and other harmless "contraband."

Character: Sindila DeLorian

Sex: Male

Age: Around 3600 years. He doesn't quite remember anymore.

Race: Kaenarii Elf

Appearance: Sindila, or Sin, is over six feet tall with untamed silver hair that stands as a great contrast to his usually neat tuxedo. His distinctive Kaenarii markings were removed in a radical surgery, making it easier for him to go unnoticed. He doesn't realize that his unique hair and contrasting clean appearance make him noticeable.

Bigoraphy: Much of Sindila's past is a mystery. We know that he is a hired hitman for Romuald, hired in this instance to discover who stole important documents from one of Romuald's careless employees. In the past he's been hired to kill dignitaries, hold hostage children to persuade people to Romuald's cause, and he even had a hand in the murder of the Royal Family. He enjoys torturing his victims, considering himself an artist, and has a fondness for Mai that is difficult to define. Love? Obession? Hatred? He's not sure. Despite his stand-out hair and choice of clothes, Sindila is a master of disguise and stealth. He's also very adept with certain drugs, and several types of weapons. He takes pride in his arson abilities.

Character Name: Erina Namas

Sex: Female

Age: 4422 years old

Race: Southern Elf

Appearance: Like most southern Elves, she is about five feet seven inches tall. Her hair is wavy and red. She wears appropriate dress, day dresses with slight bustles or hoop skirts, layered gowns for more formal occasions, but without occasion, she' is usually wearing a simple dress one might find on a school teacher... if there were many left.

Biography: Erina is the widow of Igor Namas, advisor to the late Queen, and among the first to fall during Romuald's reign. Of course, the only reason Erina still lived was because she had the good sense to side with Romuald before the coup. Unlike her daft husband. Erina was responsible for his death, having allowed Romuald's men into their home in the middle of the night, but she felt do remorse. Igor had been an idiot. She had married him when she was young and stupid and in love but over the centuries, she'd realized just how stupid he was. Now Erina is mistress to Romuald, and one of the few who know his true preferences. For the life of comfort he provides, however, Erina would agree to quite a bit. Like the new task he has in store for her.
