Character Description

Rain was born Peleps Aina, a typical Dynast child, in a branch of the family located in the South. Her family handled Peleps’ shipping concerns in Chiaroscuro, and had been based there for decades, long enough for the local influence on their bloodline to be visible. She never displayed a particular interest in business matters, though, preferring to spend her time in the libraries of her house, learning history and occult lore. She even went so far as to follow those brave few who hunted for treasure in the abandoned areas of the city, though her parents discovered this fairly quickly and discouraged her from doing so.

She was moved to the Realm proper when she was 7, to receive an education more suitable for a young Dynast. She learned well, but by the time she finished primary school she had not Exalted, much to the disappointment of her parents, not to mention herself. After attending a minor secondary school, she threw herself into parties in an attempt to hide her shame and bitterness, but this was later to have adverse effects… attending a Cynis orgy gave her a taste for blood. Killing men (and women) while she had slept with them became at first a thrill, then the standard. Sadly, the haziness caused by such violent sex dimmed her judgement, to the point that she did not fully kill one of her lovers, and he struck her down before expiring himself.

The Walker came to her as she died, promising an eternity of blood in return for servitude. She gladly accepted, and was Exalted into the Daybreak Caste. She traveled to his citadel to receive her training, showing both flair and talent for the arts of necromancy. She later returned to the Realm, using her knowledge of their society and her now-overwhelming presence to obtain invitations to anywhere she might need. She heard rumors of an isolated family of Ledaal sorcerors on a small island not far from Cherak, and arranged to be invited there. After murdering the entire family and binding them to her service, she changed the aspect of the Manse they were living in to Abyssal aspect, which she now uses as a home.

Most of Rain’s white hair is tied back into three thin ponytails, but there is still a bit framing her face, as well as the small portion combed back and to the side from her forehead. Outside of social situations, she wears a catsuit that leaves her arms and left leg bared, with twin lines of diamond cutouts down the right side, shoulder to ankle. Her only accessories are a small white jade earring in each ear, and usually fingerless gloves. Her skin is deeply tanned, as she is of Southern origin. Finally, her slightly slanted eyes are a bright, liquid black.

Expanded Backgrounds

  • Allies

Cynis Agan, a Exalted Dynast who has taken up the task of providing slaves for his brother’s guests. Rain went to him often before she Exalted. She uses him for the same purpose now, and occasionally for gathering information on upcoming social events.

  • Artifact

Rain received only a few items from her master, but they are exactly what she needed: a set of grave prison chains, to bind her one of her pet ghosts; a morning star guide, to help her find her way through the Labyrinth and Underworld, and a hearthstone amulet to house the stone of her Manse.

  • Followers

Ledaal Yira, Kaiten, and Atin, Dynasts who were murdered by Rain when she took the Ruby Canal. Yira is the youngest of the ghosts, killed when she was 16. She is a small girl, with thin, delicate features, and not a great deal of physical strength. Rain keeps her in a specially prepared room of the Manse, bound by grave-prison chains and occult wards, to ensure that the other two are obedient. Kaiten and Atin are brothers, with Kaiten being Yira’s father. Both bitterly hate Rain, but have sworn that they will not act against her, on pain of Yira’s death. They do not, of course, know that she is already dead, only that the room she is in is inaccessible to them. Atin is a sorcerer, and was teaching Yira before Rain came. He is quite well-versed in occult lore, but has not told Rain of his knowledge.

  • Liege

Rain is well-trusted by her master… or perhaps, he just knows that he could easily crush her if she showed any signs of defiance. In any case, he has allocated a fair share of his resources to seeing that she is well-trained.

  • Manse

Ruby Canal

  • Necromancy

Even before the Black Exaltation, Rain had a intense interest in occult matters, hoping to one day become a sorcerer. Her dreams died when she did not Exalt as a Dragon-Blood, but her joining with the forces of death has remade them as it does all else, and now she delves ever-further into her studies of the dark arts. The Walker noted this, and made sure she had a solid necromantic backing.

  • Resources

The Ruby Canal had a small reservoir of jade, which Rain has taken for her own. Much of it is now gone (Rain isn't noted for her restraint, especially when it comes to fine clothes), but a fair portion still remains, enough to see to most of her needs.
