I drew up Rabulav in reference to the Sarghress, but if his group came to Chel, they'd be one of a few riys that came with a rep (likely an Empath female, if anything I scribbled about them existed). With the onset of the war, this rep would have pulled all riys back to her (I could see some of the leaders interacting with the Sarghress, Sharen, and Illhar'dro, since they were major directors in Chel) and perhaps moved them to the neutral Nal'sarkoth, in case she elected they all go back home as the Nal'sarkoth Surface connections would be the easiest path. Rabulav and co. would have to see old drinking friends fewer and far between. And somewhere along the way, they'd take in this little brat named Taiga who is of Nal'sarkoth blood. Perhaps his mother was a Nal'sarkoth and died in the war, and his father was in the riys, making Rabulav feel responsible for him? Or they just picked him up one day and liked him?
I think you get a good impression of personalities in the group of Voisk. "Popka" has the personality of a kid Taiga's age but with post-pubescent hormones. So now the riy has the equivalent of TWO kids to take care of. Also tossed in my Nal'sarkoth creation, Keithonia, to play the deliverer of tender morsels. Brushes that look like vegetation were the ones that came with GIMP. Downside is OSX Mavericks and GIMP have an issue with text entry (only fix is to remove hotkeys, and I'm not doing that!) that I hope will be cleared soon, so I had to open Photoshop Elements to put in the text bubbles here. Bleh.
(Also the crazy drops around the H in "happy" is trying to get that Cyrillic X sound out. Roman alphabet drives me nuts for trying to replace Cyrillic!)
