Vince's current wife and mother of the Cline triplets, a faean ex-con who betrayed her home colony after years as the keeper of the colony's HiveMind. During her exile on earth, she eventually took up jobs in the medical field that allowed her to be alone, or at least deal regularly with dead humans. While she isn't so bloodthirsty anymore, the exile doesn't appear to have done much to her personality as she's still as nasty as ever.

Has a lover/husband/king consort lover/husband in the form of Ylazir.



* CoolSword: The famous blade that she used to slay Uduine, eldest and mightiest of the dragon-queens, is solid iron, a potent silotoxicant to stop Uduine's aither-wielding in its tracks. The iron is so pure it took her years to build enough resistance to even hold it.

* TheHighQueen: She became queen in the traditional draconic way because she felt the dragon queendoms were being left behind, turned into a backwards curiosity. From all of her experience working with (and sometimes overthrowing) monarchies and governments, she hopes to maybe pass what she's learned and her queenly demeanor onto the other Cephasti dragon-queens.



* LadyOfWar: In addition to being a MasterSwordswoman, the world likes to paint her as this, owing to the fact that she managed to slay an enormous, eons-old queen dragon with nothing more than an iron sword, one of the only known people to do so. She, on the other hand, doesn't think she would have won had the dragon not had what basically amounted to a death wish, and the world also tends to forget that she came out of the fight with some injuries that turned out to be unpleasant enough to make her wish she was dead.

But nothing he actually does ''seems'' particularly evil- many of his major actions (wanting to save his infant sons at all cost, enacting a slave rebellion) can legitimately be cited as ChronicHeroSyndrome, and he's in combat dress and when it's cold, which, since he gets cold easily, is quite often. pretty nice, even if you try to kill him.



* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Subverted, as he didn't stop aging until he reached his species' equivalent of human biological age mid-forties. He actually seems to prefer it this way.

It also doesn't help that her true form is based off of a praying mantis.

The Rivari are an immortal humanoid species found all over Aitherion. Nearly everything about them was seemingly created with servitude in mind, a role that they have played with legendary precision since before recorded history. Their biology, invulnerability, and use of sorcery are unlike anything else the world has seen, but amnesia of the worst sort, a strong psychological need to serve and obey orders, and the inability to utilize lethal force against sapient life prevents them as a whole from having much of a culture or being more than an auxiliary to human societies.

* FacialMarkings: All Rivari who are currently in or have gone through their oaths have a natural mark that is as dark as fresh henna paste around their right eye, a circle with outstretched rays like a stylized depiction of the sun. Children are born unmarked and gain the initial circle upon swearing their first oath of servitude, which will contain up to fifty rays, each of which represents a single person that they have served as a highly-visible method of advertising their experience. Rivari who continue serving beyond that fifty will gain more circles ticked with more rays, connected to the previous in a chain that wraps around the side, back, and top of the head.

Rivari who continue serving beyond carrying out oaths past that first fifty will gain more circles ticked with more rays, connected to the previous in a chain that wraps around the side, back, and top of the head.



* ScarsAreForever: This is quite literal with them and also averted- any injuries inflicted upon them that would leave physical scars will do so permanently if they're inflicted by their oath-holder, and their oath-holder alone. Any other injuries as well as holder-inflicted ones that they are ordered to heal will do so without a trace.



* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Without close inspection, it can be difficult to tell male and female Rivari apart if they haven't retired yet- their facial features tend towards the gender neutral, their builds and heights can be all over the board[[note]]ergo, men aren't necessarily more likely than women to be taller or more muscular[[/note]], women's hips stay relatively narrow until they bear children, and their breasts are small or even mostly flat unless they're pregnant or nursing.

* TheNeedless: Rivari over the age of three do not actually require oxygen, physical nourishment, or rest (outside of the required twelve hours per three days) to survive. Not having any of these things is not going to prevent them from carrying out any orders. If you had a Rivari sworn to you and never allowed them to eat or sleep outside of their required twelve hours per seventy-two, and ordered them to some kind of physically or mentally demanding work (that they understand and know how to do) for sixty hours straight with no breaks, they'll do it no problem. But if they wanted to do that work by themselves with no order forcing them, they're going to have trouble without daily food and nightly rest.

* TimeAbyss: Some of the oldest Rivari fit this trope more strongly having been out of mandatory servitude for a major portion of their lives. Fifty oaths of servitude can take at least a millennium, while the oldest are tens of thousands of years old, predating the advent of agriculture in Aitherion. Adult Rivari generally look no older (or younger) than a human around their early/mid thirties.

* BaldWoman: She shaved her [[RapunzelHair longer-than-her-height length]] hair off after she was released from prison, during which her hair became heavily matted and dirty, then decided to keep it shaved when she found her marks wrapping around the side and back of her head and decided to show them off. This is also coupled with the fact that she took to the road soon after her release and simply didn't want to mess around with keeping hair clean. She even went so far as to have a treatment done so it can't ever grow back.

!!! Threads: Archipelago

A man of similar age to Iris who made a name for himself as a nigh-unstoppable assassin. After eventually tiring of getting run out of town on sight, he moved to Mialor and took up nanoengineering, even scoring a research fellowship at the prestigious University of Torlow and a position at Southwind Nanotechnology. Is currently Iris's lover/husband.

* HappilyMarried: Now that they've had some time away from each other, they've fallen back in love and remarried so they can be a proper queen and king of Cephast.
* ImplacableMan: Not even having his head whacked off will stop him! He did actually gain a Terminator-like status soon after he and Iris fled town.
* LargeHam: Contrasts nicely with Iris's stoicism, and it makes her smile, to boot.
* LosingYourHead: Not long after he and Iris married and she became pregnant with his children, a noblewoman said something untoward about his wife, so he killed the noblewoman and was sentenced to execution by beheading. Even though his head was put on display atop an [[ColdIron iron pike]] and the rest of him was tossed into a mass grave outside the city walls, his body regrew his head only a couple weeks later, no worse for the wear, and he even claimed his partially rotted head as a trophy (and so he could bludgeon the noblewoman's widower to death with it).

* NotSoStoic: Tries to project an air of unflappable dignity and efficiency and usually does a damn good job of it around strangers and acquaintances, but completely melts into a different person when alone with his husband and close friends. His facial expressions and emotions are still very subtle, nearly impossible to read, and sometimes even obscured by cultural differences if you haven't been around him long enough to tell them apart.

* StoutStrength: Notably short for a Rivari (around 5'5"/165cm), yet built like a tree trunk. It's true that Rivari can't kill, but that didn't stop his earliest island chiefs from putting him through martial arts training so he'd be ready for home-front attacks from Porint.
* TattooAsCharacterType: Has a traditional set for a Tefurean chief-tattooist Rivari, with tattoos covering most of his body from the tops of his feet to his neck, and covering his arms to twist around his fingers. The art style is also unlined unlike typical Western tattoos- with the exception of a few on the inside of his arm -and is heavily reliant on shading and color blending like an oil painting.
* TerseTalker: Seems to do this intentionally when he speaks Mialian, which is his second language. He'll ''write'' perfectly normal sentences in Mialian, however, which gives off the implication that he's still dealing with a common problem that people speaking a second language often have. He doesn't have this problem at all when speaking his 'native' language, Oriynyan.
