Mikilu'ligr Val'Dutan'vir

Mikilu'ligr Val'Dutan'vir

Postby Pitdragon » Sat Dec 14, 2013 10:50 am

Was unsure to post this in case more things happen next chapter, but I figure why not? I can always update later as more info rolls in. I'll have to go poking at my copy of the Prologue because I could've sworn there was a concept for Mikilu in there. I'll add that as a concept later if I can (and if it exists and I'm not just loopy).

[[Category:Can be featured]]
<section begin=feature /> Once an esteemed Imperial Overseer, Mikilu is now a forgotten exile and the last hope for the shattered Val'Dutan'vir clan. <section end=feature />

==Appearance and Personality==
Mikilu is tall, owing to her mixed blood. She has auburn hair and grey eyes. Her forehead is adorned with an amber stone and tattoos that create stag horns. In the past she wore her hair long in three loose ponytails and long bangs with golden jewelry, but in Arc 2 her hair is pulled back in an intricate, braided bun and she eschews anything luxurious. During her time as an Overseer, she wore the traditional robes of an overseer in colors of the Dutan'vir clan - rich browns and golds. In her exile, she hid herself in dark clothing. In Mimaneid, she wears brown leathers and carries a wooden staff. She almost always covers her lower face with a veil.

Mikilu's central characteristic is her loyalty. She was among the most loyal servants of the Val'Sharess, even among the Overseers and Guard. While she loves her clan and desires its return to power, her loyalty to her old station overshadows much of what she does - she did not leave her post when the Dutan'vir fell, and even now she has traveled to Mimaneid in order to secure vengence over [[Snadhya'runes Vel'Sharen]]'s machinations instead of standing by her clan as they retake their home district.

She is also very patient and meticulous. As an Overseer she was both honored and feared for her abilities to discern the politics of various clans she was sent to on Imperial orders. In exile, she spent the better part of 30 years building a system of listeners and actors, to learn as much as she could about what was happening now in the [[Vel'Sharen]] as well as in [[Orthorbbae]], even going so far as to testing Snadhya'runes' security with attacks. Even her actions in Mimaneid show she is willing to work hard for alliances to insure her revenge and the position of her clan in Chel'el'sussoloth's future.

==Biography - Arc 1==
===Imperial Guard===
Mikilu'ligr is descended from former Ill'haress [[Sanindi'ligr Val'Dutan'vir]]. Like many of her clan, she became an Imperial Overseer under the rule of [[Val'Sharess Diva'ratrika Val'Sharen]], alongside her brother [[Sker'ligr]]. She was one of the most trusted Overseers of the Empress and eventually came to lead them and much of the Imperial Guard by default. Her loyalty to the Empress was even greater than to that of her clan.

===Post-Nidraa'chal War===
Mikilu witnessed [[Sil'lice Val'Sharen]] in the Val'Sharess tower, surrounded by dead and confronting [[Nishi'kanta Vel'Sharen]] during the height of battle in the Nidraa'Chal War. [[Nir'naya]] decried Sil'lice as the one who had murdered through her kin and into the building and denounced her as a traitor trying for the Val'Sharess' life. While her kinsman Sker'ligr was convinced by Sil'lice to let her go, Mikilu was left unsure what to think of the events.

Sker left the Guard to join the [[Val'Sarghress]] along with many other Dutan'vir survivors, and many Dutan'vir in the Imperial Guard either committed suicide or followed him. Mikilu was informed by the remaining Sharen daughters Snadhya'rune, [[Sarv'swati]], and [[Zala'ess]] that the Val'Sharess trusted no one and would not meet with her Overseers or Guards until she deemed them loyal, and Mikilu was forced to wait until she was called for. But the call never came, even as Nir'naya was selected to be head of the Imperial Guard. Mikilu was "graciously" allowed to remain in her apartments, but she faced insult and ridicule at every turn within the Sharen fortress, with constant ribbing over the new meaning of "Ligr" after her clan's last stand and its failure. Eventually, rumors rose about her being vicious and vile, and she was framed in the murder of her servant and staff in the kitchens after a "prank."

Nishi'kanta came forward and told her that her life would not be long if she remained with the Sharen, and that no Empress would be calling for her. Nishi'kanta's warnings were heeded, and Mikilu disappeared without a trace.

===Exile===
No one knew where Mikilu had gone, though there were rumors that she left for another city. Even the Dutan'vir among the Mae'yukir house of the Sarghress presumed that their Val line had been extinguished with her disappearance. But Mikilu did not go far.

She hid within the slums of Chel'el'sussoloth and began to covertly gather information on Snadhya'runes and the Vel'Sharen. She employed the use of two street urchins, [[Cer'kal Veru'ur]] and [[Taio'shi]], the latter of which looked to Mikilu as an adoptive mother. They supplied her with necessities and kept her informed about the talk on the street. They even ran guerrilla missions against the Sharen sisters to test the security of the women, notably attacking Snadhya'runes' carriage as she escorted [[Mel'arnach Val'Sarghress]] to the Sarghress fortress.

She revealed herself to her kinsmen, Sker'ligr and [[Minka Sann'ligr Val'Dutan'vir]] by the end of the year 1098 of the Moonless Age, and the three discussed the resurrection of their former clan.

==Arc 2==
===Mimian Allies===
While former Dutan'vir, led by Sker'ligr and Minka, overthrew Kyorl'solenurn forces at the old Dutan'vir holdings, Mikilu was not present. Instead, she had been spending a year in Mimaneid learning the ways of the locals and attempting to drum up support for Sil'lice's cause against Snadhya'runes. [[Ill'har Ulvakhi Kavahini]] answered her call, and together the two worked on a plan to strike at [[Felde]], Snadhya'runes' base city. With the Felde Gathering recently announced and Zala'ess returning with allies to Chel'el'sussoloth in order to turn the tide of battle against the Sarghress, Sil'lice and Nishi'kanta are torn on what to do - ensure the Sarghress victory with their new allies, or grab at the opportunity to take down Snadhya'runes and her allies. Mikilu and Ulvakhi press for the Felde initiative.

==Notable Quotes==
"I fear for our future if the Nidraa'chal are not eliminated to the last woman very soon."<ref>{{ChapterRef|00|11}}</ref> - Overseer Mikilu'ligr's report on the growing civil war in Chel.
"There is naught to return to! My life is pledged, the Queen knows this." - responding to Snadhya'runes suggesting she return to her home while awaiting the Val'Sharess' summon.
"If it were not for the two of you, I too would be dead on treacherous Sharen blades."<ref>{{ChapterRef|43|52}}</ref> - addressing Nishi'kanta and Sil'lice at the Kavahini fortress.

Turns out there wasn't any concept art of her in that copy of the Prologue I got. Oh well.

Also, concept art of Sannindi'ligr, if someone would like to add it to a barebones wiki page for her, or at least change her icon on the Wiki.

PS. Could someone update Lu's status to 'deceased' on the Wiki?
