"I used to love Empire. They were proud, strong nation of pure beings, children of sky and stars, descendants of gods of old, loyal subjects of dynasty of ten thousand years, firmly focused on their mystic religion..."
"Hah... silly me. After I graduated, they took me to Intelligence Headquarters in Lynic. They needed a translator, they said. I know their culture, they said. And so I learned the other side of these people."
"Nation is merely social construct, easy lie to convince fools. Empire and my own people never played good along. Everyone get used to seeing patrol skirmishes along borders from time to time. But the war - the real war - was waged here, in the dark and murky undergrounds..."
Shelim and his younger sister Relina were born in the mid-class elven family of great military traditions. Their father was a Coalition colonel, commanding officer of strategic outpost near Empire border during not-so-cold war between two of the most powerful nations in Akaia. Relina was always fascinated by military service, and started training with bow as she turned twelve, dreaming of joining one day the officer training school. Shelim on the other hand was way more interested in primeval forests of the Assembly, wanting to became a professional hunter. After fierce argument about their ways of defining their roles in the future, they've separated their paths in their late adolescent and kept apart for the next five years.
Vera was hatched as common dragon outside of safety of Elvish Assembly and Coalition. She never knew her parents and was raised by her older brother Vael, who also shared her early developed shifter capabilities. They spent their youth wandering across northland, trying to survive in harsh environment full of dangerous predators. After Vera fully grown her elvish form enabling her to fool most of dragon hunters, Vael reckoned she might be safer within more civilized areas of Akaia. They briefly settled in Empire, trying to adapt to vastly different society. After Vael fell in love with noble dragon, ambassador of Assembly, they moved again into Coalition territory finally finding calm and peace they've so sought through their early life. Vera adapted quickly to new environment, finding a lot of time for pursuing her artistic dreams and, eventually, finding a true love.
Ooo, these are nice characters, here! Interesting, diverse back-stories between the three of them, quite intriguing . <3
