Meet the Characters
King of the Bellaneese tribe which sits atop Mt Bella, a remnant stump of an ancient felled world tree. Ataris is gifted with the power of Keensight which allows he and his fellow tribe members to see reality and time on a different plane than others. He is a fierce warrior who is incredibly proud of his heritage and people. Within his mind his forefathers’ visions are instinctively inherent, existing at any time he wishes to summon them.
Queen of the Bellaneese and wife of King Ataris, Isla is a beautiful and persistent figure. Meeting King Ataris while he was still a prince in their adolescence, the soon-to-be Queen quickly stole the young man’s heart. Their love was a two-way road though It may have been his good looks or the suave first words that won her over. “My heart has seen you coming for many years now my lady, but it is only now that I can see you with my own eyes”! Islas’ father was an elder of the Bellaneese tribe and passed away soon after she was wed to King Ataris. Her mother, soon after grief struck, chose to use her keensight to change, becoming an animal and one with the wild, never being seen again.
Jungles of Thunder
Led by King Zeke and reluctantly his son Prince Bazor. King Zeke was widowed after his wife fell Ill with a sickness that was thought to have originated in the Valley. Zeke has become bitter and cynical due to the loss of his young bride and takes much of his anger out on his relationship with his son Bazor. The tribe of JOT holds the key to a secret manipulation of sound, which they use to enhance their technology and weaponry. The jungles surround half of the base of Mt Bella and end where the cliffs of Mt. Bella meet the Dead Sea. The jungles are filled with exotic creatures whom the Tribe considers part of their family.
The Cave Dwellers are led by Grunt who is the Alpha of the Pack and his wife Quill. Quill spends much of her time calming Grunt down and translating what he has to say to outsiders of their cave community. The Cave Dwellers are an ancient and mysterious tribe of people, some say as old as the Bellaneese tribe from Mt. Bella. There is a fable told about a king who once ruled the Cradle, he had a son and a daughter named Baton and Bella. He loved both of his children very much, but one day after waking up from his slumber, he found his daughter lying in her bed dead. His son Baton was nowhere to be found, but his shirt was on the floor covered in his sister’s blood.
The King’s heart was broken and filled with rage towards Baton. After burying his daughter on a mountain just outside the Cradle, he got word that his son had been found in the jungles and had him arrested.
The King had his son beaten and thrown into a dungeon carved out of the mountainside where his daughter was buried. Although Baton desperately denied his involvement in his sisters death, no one would believe him. Growing tired of hearing his son screaming at night, the King released dread wolves into the cave. He was never heard from again.
Prince Baton is said to be the forefather of all cave dwellers. Years after his imprisonment, the cave which held him was opened and explored to find his remains. Nothing was found, except a vast system of tunnels like a labyrinth and strange symbols carved into the rock walls. Only those smart enough to tether themselves to ropes found their way back once entering.
Captain of the Dark Fleet. Cascade and her armada have a foothold on all high-end commodities coming in and out of the port of Vallhorn. Though Cascade’s occupation is officially the transportation of goods, we can also add bounty hunting and smuggling to her repertoire.
Chancellor of the City of Vallhorn. Rael “The Great” as he prefers to be addressed is an epicurean of sorts, desiring the finest things his surrounding land has to offer. The irony is, he is without self-control, and coining his actions as overindulgence would be putting it lightly. Nothing about Rael is light!! His origin and place of birth are unknown but many servants who now work for him quietly claim that he grew up poor in the slums within the Valley city of Vallhorn.
