Character Name: YSBRAND

Gender: Male

Age: Unknown, but he appears to look in his late 20's.

Physical Description: Broad shouldered, tall; short brown hair; blue/grey eyes. Charismatic. Travels with menagerie. Carries a twisted wood staff and enchanted weapons. He wears a long, flowing deep navy rob.

Brief Bio: The Saxon Warlock, Ysbrand. He has a strange accent, it seem Irish, but still is different from an Irish person. One day a group of Romans invaded his village. Kander and his wife made it out alive, as well as Budra and Ysbrand. But Ysbrand's parents were killed by the Romans, who tried to invade Ireland after conquering most of Britainnia. Seeking revenge he tried as hard as possible to get Kander to teach him all he knew. Kander saw the rage in Ysbrand's heart, and said no. Ysbrand left warning Kander, his wife and Budra never to get in his way. Budra found out many years later that a woman saw Ysbrand's strangth and taught him all she new. The woman was known as Queen Mab. An evil woman. She had more power in her little finger than any of the other mystics in the world. He has a very commanding presence. When he enters the room everyone usually becomes silent, but only for a few seconds. He is generally nice to people, at least to their faces. He doesn't like people very well, although there are a select few that he genuinely likes. He epecially doesn't like Horsa or Hengist because if it weren't for them, he would be a free man. He seeks to conquer those who have imprisoned him. He wants revenge on the ones who killed his parents, took him away from his homeland. He wishes to get a hold of Cerridwen's Cauldron to put the Saxons under his rule and to eliminate all who stand in his way.

Most often known to say: "Why am I cursed with these idiots?"

Described by others as: "A very strange man. When he looks into your eyes, it sends a chill down your spine; its almost like you know he's plotting something. But who am I to judge a man on the way he looks?"

Character Type: Personal
Character Name: Aurelius
Gender: M
Age: 20
Physical Description: dark brown eyes; long, unbound, fine black hair. Elegant face and behaviour
Brief Bio: Originally he came from a place called Azeroth (forgive me). He was called upon by The Mist to team up with other paladins from the other worlds and help defending a great artifact from worthless people. The transiton from Azeroth to this place called "Earth" has wiped his memories, as well as his briefing from The Mist. He himself knows little about his own past in Azeroth. All he knows is that he had to defend the Village in order to get home. And he often mediates, trying to remember about his past.
Most often known to say: "Calm down."
Described by others as: A quiet but warm and helpful man. A living symbol of virtues. A fierce fighter. A good healer. Avoids magics.

Character Type: Personal

Character Name: Cian OhEaghra

Gender: Male

Age: 28

Physical Description: A little taller than the average, Cian stands at about 6 feet tall, with long, unruly black hair and bright snowflake-blue eyes. His hands and fingers are long and slender, hinting at an aptitude for musicial instruments. He wears a hauberk of mail underneath a thick green cape emblazoned with the seal of the OhEaghra Clan, leather boots, gauntlets and breeches complement his attire, and he carries a the Clan Falchion given to him by his father on his left and a skean on his right.

Brief Bio: Cian OhEaghra: the son of Olioll Olum, King of Meath; the son of Eoghan (Owen) Mor, the 110th Monarch of Ireland; direct descendant of Heber Fionn, first monarch of Ireland.

In Meath King Olioll still holds the throne at Tara- though nearly pushing the venerable age of sixty- but there is something rotten in the state of Ireland. Enemies of the OhEaghra Clan seek to overthrow the rightful OhEaghra rule of Meath and dispute their legitimate claim to the Crown of Ireland and in attempting to do so, they managed to 'convince' a group of corrupt Bishops to that Cian was guilty of heresy and abomination and they ordered his arrest.

A young family friend who was a priest learned of this and warned the OhEaghras of this, and Cian escaped through Wales to England to gather support for his return and to enforce his claim to the Crown. The story picks up with the priest, Ruadan of Leinster, and Cian OhEaghra making their way across the stormy Irish Sea on a small, oared ship...

Character Name: Ruadan of Leinster

Gender: Male

Age: 24

Physical Description: Standing at about 5 feet and 6 inches, Ruadan is at the average height for the men of his tribe and time, yet he was possessed of a constitution much weaker. Frail, somewhat prone to sickness, Ruadan was a natural for his chosen profession as a priest. He wears the Black Robes of Iona, carries his crude crucifix, a few assorted parchment full of parables, and his role as the professor of his faith with dignity.

Brief Bio: Ruadan is the cousin of Cian, but fathered different Clan. Yet, since he is considered part of the royal Meath family he was allowed the same educational priviledges as Cian and his siblings and he grew up revering the older Cian and his exploits.

Yet, when he came of age he had no where to go- he had no place in the castle and no Clan to go to, and his frail and bookish nature held no place in the adventuring world- so he decided to go to Clonard to study under Finnian in his monastary. It was here that the a few of the elders of the Church had met to plot to convince the rest that Cian OhEaghra was guilty of heresy and Ruadan overheard it and rushed home to Tara to inform his childhood hero of his impending doom.

One step ahead of the Church and the men of Diarmat macCerbaill, the accuser, Ruadan followed Cian to the docks of Dublin, then in a move sure to shape his life, he decides to abandon the rest of his schooling in an attempt to save himself and boarded the ship with Cian.

Most often known to say: May His blessings go with you.

Described by others as: Pious, shy, quiet, bookish

Character Type: Personal

Name: Kyrin

Gender: Female

Age: looks early to mid twenties, but could be much older, as her experience may imply.

Physical Description: Short. Very pale skin and red hair that is always worn down, hiding her ears. Kyrin is usually dressed in greens. Her current wardrobe includes a pale green dress withyellow trim and a forest green cloak that glimmers. She has many pouches sown in the inside of the cloak and also has a few pouches hanging from her belt. She does carry a quarterstaf and a sling, but they do not look like they are used much.

Brief Bio: Kyrin's background is a mystery to most that meet her. She speaks with a funny accent that many can not seem to place. She almost seems to think she is better than everyone else, but this does not often show through in her personality. Nobody has known her for many years, but she appears to be looking for adventure and something else...

Most often heard musing to herself: "I wonder what I can use this for?"

Favorite weapon: magical missiles that mysteriously always find their target.

Brief Bio: Youngest daughter of Klax, Chieftan of a tribe of Angles allied with the Saxons. Outwardly a flirtacious distraction to young men of the tribe. Inwardly, a scheming, manipulative vixen intent upon gaining power through her beauty and dabling in mysticism. Seeks to ally herself with a powerful man for her own advantage, not his.

Character Name: King Olioll Olum of the Clan OhEaghra

Gender: Male

Age: 59

Physical Description: An aged, bent old man, Olioll still possesses some of the vitality that has sustained him through so much hardship. With long, flowing white hair, and rheumatic light blue eyes Olioll looks as though he ought to be named 'ancient', as opposed to his son, Cian. He wears the Torque of the Clans, and still carries his family's sword, while adorned in a green, fur-lined cloak.

Brief Bio: Olioll has seen much in his life- of his 9 sons, only 2 remain, Cormac-Cas, the elder, and Cian, the younger. This is all the direct result of a lifetime of strife with a son-in-law, Lughaidh, who when they were both much younger declared war on the OhEaghra Clan determined to secure the Right of Succession for himself. Lughaidh retreated to Scotland after being banished from the Isle and returned with his friends and family- the resulting Battle of Magh Mucromha left the then High King of Ireland, Art-Ean-Fhear and seven of Olioll's sons dead, and the OhEaghra Clan in shambles.

Yet Olioll persevered, and thirty years later Lughaidh died without a legitimate male heir, and Olioll regained all the land he had lost after the Battle of Magh Mucromha, along with the claim to the throne of the High King. Clan OhEaghra and King Olioll now contend with an illegitimate son of Lughaidh, Diarmat macCerbaill, in this latest round of machinations.

Most often known to say: And that is my will!

Described by others as: Proud, stern, just, melancholy

Character Name: His name is Cedric, but likes to go by Bevan. He only likes the people he really knows well to call him Cedric.



Physical Description:Blonde mildly curly hair, Bright blue eyes, tall, broud shoulders, very handsome

Brief Bio:Not any of the Saxons or Angles know anything about Cedric. He perfers to go by Bevan. He is strong willed, and doesn't do anything willingly that would ruin his honor. He is shy around Lestra, but warms up after a few minutes. He would rather be around Lestra than Nyla because Lestra can carry on a normal conversation, at least this is what he thinks. Ysbrand wants Bevan to do his bidding, but finds his will a little harder to "control" than he had first thought.

Most often known to say:"ummmm...nothing."

Described by others as:"Very handsome young man.
Wish my son was more like him."
