Varash D'Veldrin Chpt 2: Scarred Shadows

Incubo'mora returned the soft cheek pecks freely to both fellow Illharesses. Keeping one arm linked with Xia'sol she motioned with the other to the building. "I am glad you think so. The last meeting place was far too plain......not to mention the sigma it now carries for being a place Illharesses were held hostage in." She shook her head at the memory. Noticing the politeness of Kimia’s escort she bowed her head in return. Respect was in turn to be rewarded with respect.

“Mmm, perhaps later you ladies will do me the honour of accompanying me to a play at the Theatre? It would be a fantastic place for us to unwind after the meeting.” Mora quipped.



The twins, Neith & Satis, knew better then to hound their mother about when she is tending to her allies. Incubo’mora was quite comfortable with the two Illharesses, and she did not want the close presence of her two favourite guards to send the wrong message. Instead, they opted to keep close to their flamboyant young sister. Their brother, Maahev could take care of himself, though they would keep an eye on him from afar regardless.

Philomela stretched for a moment, and then cartwheeled her way over to Nasrin (to the annoyance of the mute twins, who quickly followed after her) and her siblings. She made a deep bow before speaking from underneath the mirror mask. “Fantastic to see you all here, but I am curious…to which of you do I speak if I need a few costumes done for a new play of mine?” Even with a mask on one could sense her smile in her voice.



On another front Maahev was preoccupied with the arrival of the M’elzar entourage, led by his older half-brother of course. How much had been fought over Cal’atar? How many lives were lost to have him know his mother? Maahev watched them; not maliciously so, but he could not deny himself that he had always been envious of the brother who’s shadow he lived under in his mother’s eyes for the longest time; the brother whom he had never properly met but had tried to emulate, in his early years, regardless.

Where Cal’atar was the wished for a child of a sweet affair, Maahev was a child born out of duty to a mate his mother hated. “What parallels.” The golden-eyed drowussu male mused to himself.

He tilted his head to the side with a look of mild curiosity. The light elf with Cal’atar was surely Umrae’anna, Incubo’mora’s former teacher. It was amazing that they would bring her out to a crowd of drowolath. If such differences could be looked past, then surely this city could find the will to move past this war as well.

Kimia smiled, "I would enjoy that. Though I hope it is something funny, we're going to need it after all this drama." Kimia glanced breifly over to the Val'Mel'zar.

Meanwhile Nasrin had turned towards the flamboyant daughter. She smiled and leaned back toward her brother. "Adish, Didn't we leave Jannet talking about a new commission from our allies."

Adish nodded, "Yes, I believe she was going on about that. However she wanted you and Avenah to handle the order. You said only if it came up. Which I believe it has."

Nasrin turn her full attention back to flashy lady, "My dear, I believe I am the one your looking for.

Kealyn slowly dismounted, her son rushed off his own mount to assist her but he found the aid unneeded. A nervous groom sidled forward towards them, shaking and staring at the two scorpions as if though he would like nothing better than to get as far away from them as powerful. Primus barely hid his contempt for the open show of cowardice, city dwellers were soft. “Well don’t just stand there,” Primus barked at the groom who jumped. “Do your job.” He trailed behind his mother who slowly strode through the gathering of the most important people in Varash. Primus could not help but admire his mother’s walk, she moved slowly and confidently; completely at ease in the surrounding but from the way she set her shoulders obviously not a part of it.

Primus took in the various officials of the other clans that had arrived so far taking it as an opportunity at the very least to glean personal information upon future enemies. There was Val'Briz'esii, one of the most recognizable for their green garments and flying mounts. Primus gave them birth, things in the Underdark shouldn’t fly. It wasn’t natural. His eyes next wondered over the four legged horned mounts that he knew belonged to the Val'Querces, Primus hid his sneer when he saw that they seem to have bring along an entire circus act as well. He continued scanning the crowd, his eyes stopping upon finding a bunch of gigantic outlandish creatures. He gave a faint smile, the Val'Shurri'rivvaki had arrived; he should have known by the sharp increase of noise and the sudden air of carnival. Their circus was even bigger than the Val’Querces’s, Primus sighed. It was hard being the only sane clan around. He saw that his mother was heading towards a gathering of illharresses. Primus sighed, here came the endless bantering.

“Greetings friends,” Kaelyn Kelthak said serenely as she inclined her head to each one in the group in turn. She recognized each one of them thought she had never seen most of them before thanks to the intelligence the Streeka had provided her with. Kaelyn saved her warmest greeting for Kimia Val’Shurri’rivvaki. Going so far as to embrace the Illharress. “Dearest Kimia,” She said genuinely beaming in delight. Kimia might be as weird as the rest but she was always interesting to be around. “I trust it you enjoyed the journey?” She could smell the scent of expensive liquor quite clearly and let just a hint of mocking showed in her voice. Kaelyn embraced Arveneh as well. She had always been fond of the oldest daughter, but more importantly there was no reason for her warmness to be lost on the heir when she would one day rule the clan. “You look splendid.” Kaelyn commented. “Your people get it right all the time.”
Primus watched the proceedings with a stony face, hand lightly clenched on pommel. There was so much better things he could be doing with his time. There was a raid scheduled for today, also the Dwarves had discovered a new mind at the very edges of their territory; a mind invested with giant centipedes. Even helping to clear it would be more worthwhile than this he mentally cursed.

"A play? Well I do agree it will have to be something humorous, something tells me such bitter words are going to be said..."

Xia'sol sighed piteously as her glance flickered towards the ruins in the distance. The court yard was quickly becoming crowded with Illhars, their escorts, and their mounts, soon it would be a hassle to get inside with all the formalities that had to be taken into account of course. Slipping her arm out from Incubo'mora's, Xia'sol gestured towards the entrance and said offhandedly,

"We will see you inside then ladies..."


Chilessa and Xia'sol left the little group just as the Kel'tahk's Illhar, Kealyn, made her way to them. Xia'sol displayed more skin than the usual Illharess, a fitted top only covering her breasts, a intricate gold and gem inlaid chest and neck piece and a form hugging trailing skirt. Her hands were decorated in delicate gauntlets with long golden fingernails. Some of the Illhars looked stonily at Xia'sol and Chilessa, while others made small bows in reverence. It was indeed a very beautiful building, the mana lamps and new decorations far more sumptuous than the last great chamber. While the Illhars made their way forward into the lower circle, Xia'sol and Chilessa ascended the stair case and up towards the Higher Crescent. A attendant escorted the Illharess and her heir to their seat and they settled down comfortably. Assa'rai sat far off in one corner of the Crescent but Xia'sol only had her ways forward, towards the empty throne of this New Empress.

Meanwhile...

Suuleta'jaba settled herself comfortably in a very plush and comfy seat in the lounge with the enormous image basin showing the Gathering chamber. Rox'culu fetched two glasses of wine and a plate of stuffed mushrooms and seafood hors d'ouevres for them both as he settled comfortably in an arm chair around her. Xia'sol and Chilessa had appeared on the screen now and settled down and Suuleta'jaba took a lazy sip.

"They have certainly put a lot of focus into providing needed comfort".


Rox'culu nodded his head in response, chewing on a morsel as his eyes flickered around at the lounge.


"I wonder when we'll get to see the new Empress...it seem she hasn't arrived yet".

The results of the great war had been fortuitous for the Tu'joltrezen clan. The M'elzar had been lessened in political stature whilst the Tu'joltrezen and their allies benefited from the political upheaval. Control over the school and much of the city were two of the major boons for their alliance. The Tu'joltrezen themselves were here partially to open up friendlier relations with some of the merchant clans who the Tu'joltrezen traded with and provided defense for trade caravans.

The deer-drawn chariot carrying Lou'hi and her youngest daughter Luo'natar stopped at the entrance to the neutral meeting ground, where clans could meet without threat of hostilities. Lou'hi had decided to bring her youngest daughter there to meet her father and his clan once more. Lou'hi, dressed in her finest attire of a white spider silk ruqun embroidered with precious metal thread and inlaid jewels and jewelry, stepped out of the chariot with a similarly attired Lou'natar in tow, as the Kodiak Knights arranged themselves into a circular formation around the chariot, weapons at ready. "Now, Luo'natar, remember what I told you about public speaking and negotiating…" said Lou'hi to Luo'natar.

"Yes, mother," spoke Luo'natar, absent-mindedly straightening out her clothes and cloak as she hurredly tried to keep up with her mother's great strides.

Lou'hi and her daughter entered the theatre with a small number of dismounted Tu'joltrezen warriors in tow. An immense spectacle of dancers and contortionists greeted them as they entered. The Querces always did have an impressive taste for the theatrical.

The Tu'joltrezen Illharess spotted the Querces Illharess speaking with the leaders of the merchant clans. The Tu'joltrezen had often conducted trade with them in the past, and had offered security for them at times too.

"Ah, Incubo'mora, and Maahev…" said Lou'hi, smiling as she saw Incubo'mora's son and Luo'natar's father. The two had become quite close ever since the Val'Querces and Val'Tu'joltrezen clans started their alliance. "I trust you are in good health. Certainly there is much to discuss over the course of this meeting," she stated, tapping her staff against the floor. "And these are the Illhar'esses of the merchant clans. Again we have much to speak about," she said, respectfully nodding in the direction of the Val'Shurri'rivvaki and Val'Euol'beidrona Illharesses.

The tall Querces Illharess shook with a light laughter, and smiled to her allies. “Fantastic! We had a new comedy in mind that we wanted to present to our audience this evening.”

When the Kelthak Illhar joined their midst, she bowed her head as a sign of respect and acknowledgement for the lesser leader, but the arrival of her Tu’jol allies drew her attention away. She embraced Lou’hi in a tight hug. “I am." Letting go after a squeeze, Incubo’mora craned her neck to look at the young girl with Lou’hi, the end of her massive braid slithered forward to tap the child’s chin.

“My grand-daughter, it has been a while since I have seen you.” The violet-eyed Illharess ruffled the child’s hair.
_ _ _

Maahev joined the Illharesses and Illhar a moment later, greeting his daughter with a hug and a kiss on the forehead. “I trust you had an easy journey.” He turned to smile at his mate.
_ _ _

Pulling forth a small sketchbook from goddesses know where, Philomela hurriedly flipped through its pages. Colour flowed freely on every page, bringing the penciled designs to life on what was once bare paper, and the mirror mask reflected it all. Stopping at her chosen drawing she beamed at Nasrin from behind her mask.

“My theatre trope is in need of your clan’s expertise.” Philomela pointed out a few designs, stepping by Nasrin to give him a good view of her sketchbook. The swirling designs on her body seemed to flow like the smoke of incense as she moved. “Could your seamstresses fashion a few of these with your clan’s exquisite fabrics?”
_ _ _

Mora looked back at Lou’hi and Kimia. “Forgive me ladies for being so brief, but I’ll be following Xia’sol’s lead and heading inside.” She pulled both allies into a brief hug before leaving for the meeting hall. Maahev followed (though not before promising his daughter he would see her after the meeting), the twins did not, instead opting to keep an eye on the young Philomela. Their young half-breed sister was too full of energy.

The two drowussu steadily climbed the steps up to the high crescent, Maahev absently observing the arrival of the numerous Illhars of the minor clans.

“She will grow into a great woman.” Mora quipped.

He snapped out of his daze and to attention. “Hm? My Luo’natar?”

“Yes. “

“She’ll do both Lou’hi and you proud, mum.”

Incubo’mora gave her son a look of approval and stepped off the final stair and onto the crescent balcony of the great clans. Turning left, she strode over to her seat, Xia’sol was to her right.

Giving the Imperial throne a curious look, she leaned over to her Euol’beldroina allies.

“No sign of the Queen yet?”

Kimia gave Xia'sol smile,"See you inside, dear."

She then turned to greet Kaelyn, she smiled as she embraced her and then waved to her son, Primus. She allowed a small knowing smirk to grace her face before she turned her attention back to Kaelyn, just catching Kaelyn empty compliment. "We had a lovely ride, though a little bumpy here and there. As for our appearance. We do try to keep a certain standard, though it looks like you also have a talent for looking lovely." She nodded toward her ally's outfit. "Beautiful. Simply beautiful

Arvaneh face held a cordial smile, "Indeed, you look quite splendid. Though appears appears to weigh little at these gatherings, I'm sure you have made a great impact by wear this beautiful gown.

Kimia was about to make a comment, when the Tu'joltrezen Illharess and her small child arrived. The girl wasn't too small, though it made Kimia wish she has brought her own grandchildren, but each her daughter had denied her that. Smiling she waved to the little one before she turned and gave a warm nod towards Lou'hi. "I'm sure there is much to talk of both inside and outside the council walls. I will be happy to discuss any topic with you, I have heard quite a bit about Lou'hi. So I'm also looking forward to further conversation."

Arvaneh face brightened slightly as she gave a slight bow and said, "Greeting Illharess Lou'hi. It is a pleasure to meet you, we have had little contact till now, so I agree with my mother that we have much to talk about."

When Mora had announced her intentions of entering, Kimia smiled and then returned Mora hug. While Arvaneh gave a stiff, but respectfully bow. Both watched they're ally go inside before turning to they're current companions. Kimia gave Kaelyn a comicly sadly smile, "It appears they enter one by one, as people arrive two by two. In a matter of minutes this place has filled up." She looked at both the Kaelyn and Lou'hi. "I believe it would be wise to follow they're example, except...well, I kinda want to see the Val'D'aron appearance. It would be interest, yes?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nasrin over the colorful sketches, they gave a good outline, reminding her of those detail artist that sketch out the request for they're clan. "I believe that we will be able to accomplish most of these, if not all. I think we should continue our talk inside, where I'm sure there is a better environment for our discussion."
Nasrin looked over at Adish, who nodded and gestured for them to go ahead of him, "I do agree with my sister. It would much better to discuss any changes in comfort. Plus there will be refreshments and proved better light as to see the color, designs, and lines."
As Adish spoke, Nasrin notice that the Querces Illharess and her son had just disappeared into the building.
