Name: Battle-Mage Irvena Bladewind
Encounter: Crystalsong Forest, Zul'Drak, Alterac Valley, Suramar, Eastern Plaguelands, Zuldazar, Tiragarde Sound, Tol Dagor, Stormsong Valley, The Hinterlands
Status: Alive
Description: Irvena Bladewind was once a Magistrix of Silvermoon, a staunch and proud servant of Quel'Thalas. However, when the Scourge destroyed the Sunwell and Prince Kael'thas offered demonic magic as a solution to their magical hunger, Irvena found her peoples willingness to accept fel deplorable. Even worse was when the sin'dorei joined the Horde, for her late wife died at the hands of the orcs invasion of Quel'Thalas during the Second War. These two sins were unforgivable in Irvena Bladewind's eyes, so she left to follow a leader should could trust; Vereesa Windrunner. During her time among the Silver Covenant in Dalaran, Irvena befriended Ranger-Captain Alaron Summerdrake and served alongside him during the campaign against the Lich King.

The Battle-Mage first encountered the Sanguine Eye within Crystalsong Forest, where the two forces almost came to blows over ownership of the Eye of the Shandaral. Though battle was avoided, the Sanguine Eye's brutal killing of two missing Silver Covenant agents within Zul'drak bought about Alaron's ire. He kidnapped several of the Oathsworn and lured the Sanguine Eye into battle, though when the tide turned, Irvena used her arcane to teleport the Silver Covenant to safety in Crystalsong Forest. Battle almost erupted again within the ruins of Alterac between the two sides, but was ultimately interrupted by the sudden arrival of the Burning Legion.

Though at times dissaproving of Alaron's vengeful and sadistic side, Irvena Bladewind has stood at the Ranger-Captain's side through all their encounters with the Sanguine Eye. She fought them in the Eastern Plaguelands, then later during the siege of Dazar'alor, proving to be a skilled fighter with a great mastery of the arcane, impossible to pin down due to her frequent teleporting. It wasn't until the ambush within Tiragarde Sound that Alaron's band finally defeated the Sanguine Eye and took them prisoner. Irvena opened the portal to Tol Dagor, though she didn't seem pleased by the clear pleasure Alaron was taking from the sin'dorei's suffering.

Name: Anavere Fairflight
Encounter: Silvermoon City, Eastern Plaguelands, Zuldazar, Stormsong Valley, The Hinterlands
Status: Alive
Description: W.I.P

Name: Il'es Doranos
Encounter: The Hinterlands
Status: Alive
Description: W.I.P

Name: Sothar Bleakblade
Encounter: Eastern Plaguelands, Tiragarde Sound, Tol Dagor, Stormsong Valley
Status: Deceased
Description: Sothar Bleakblade served as an retainer for Silvermoon City, working on behalf of a senior Magistrix deeply invested in Void research. In her service, Sothar slew enemies of the High Kingdom and collected for her powerful Void-tainted artefacts from Draenor. Because of his close involvement with this Magistrix and her magic, Sothar was among those banished to protect the Sunwell. Both regretful and hateful, he found companionship among the Veilstalkers, following Alaron Summerdrake's encouragement and becoming one of the ren'dorei. He participated in the killing of several Farstriders within Lordaeron, thus leading to Irleanna's death and a battle with the Sanguine Eye. His skill with the Void allowed him to meld into the shadows and pounce upon unexpecting Oathsworn with daggers drawn, sparring with Eraevin Blackwood. Her helped assassinate several key targets during the Siege of Dazar'alor, including an orc Death Knight who helped defend the city.

From then on, Sothar was ever-present at Alaron's side and participated in every skirmish with the Oathsworn. He assisted in the defeat and capture of the Sanguine Eye in Tiragarde Sound, and later joined Anavere and Meltharian in attacking the Iris, sabotaging the ship's bloodcrystal with a dangerous infusion of Void-magic. Later, during a botched ambush, Sothar fought a bloody battle with Irtheas Adhemar that he ultimately lost. Before Irtheas could kill the ren'dorei, Sothar sank into a Void-rift and retreated, thus evading Ril'arhja's naga.

Later, Sothar fought against the Sanguine Eye in a countryside skirmish, using his Void-mastery to slip between the shadows and prey upon vulnerable Oathsworn. After Todd Bellson's dramatic fall to N'Zoth, Sothar was left temporarily stunned, something Isavriel Sunveil exploited. Her attempt to burn Sothar inside-out was interrupted by a timely intervention from Irvena Bladewind. Their final conflict with the ren'dorei assassin took place at the Veilstalker's camp. After crippling Nardalas Telimar, Sothar was ambushed by Aeetes Vel'derian, who swiftly and efficently snapped the ren'dorei's neck, killing him instantly. His body was then burnt on a makeshift pyre.

Image

Name: Meltharian El'dith
Encounter: Eastern Plaguelands, Tiragarde Sound, Tol Dagor, Stormsong Valley
Status: Deceased
Description: As a warlock, Meltharian El'dith skillfully mastered the art of using the shadow to afflicting crippling and agonizing curses upon her foes. She nurtured this talent for years, from the conquest of Outland to the battle against the Burning Legion. Alas, the depths with which she delved into the Void eventually lead to her banishment from the High Kingdom. Deeply enraged and embittered, she found companionship among the Veilstalkers, matching Alaron Summerdrake's lust for vengeance. She participated in the killing of several Farstriders within Lordaeron, thus leading to Irleanna's death and a battle with the Sanguine Eye. Her mastery of the Void allowed her to slip between the Oathsworn via rifts, all while draining their life-essence. This was a tactic she used again during the Siege of Dazar'alor, slaying several Zandalari defenders by leeching them dry.

From then on, Meltharian was ever-present at Alaron's side and participated in every skirmish with the Oathsworn. She assisted in the defeat and capture of the Sanguine Eye in Tiragarde Sound, and later joined Anavere and Sothar in attacking the Iris, fighting with Overseer Sunshard and killing Flamewhisker in the crossfire. Later, during a botched ambush, Meltharian battled with several of the Oathsworn using her Void-mastery, though was forced to retreat as Ril'arhja and the naga arrived as re-enforcements to the Oathsworn.

Meltharian later fought in a vicious battle with Helion Rassendyll during their countryside skirmish, suffering wounds to her body and soul before escaping from the scene. Finally, when the Oathsworn assaulted the Veilstalker's camp, Meltharian lead the defence and enabled many Veilstalkers to flee for their ship. Using her Void-magic, she fought back against multiple Oathsworn, ravaging Vedrian Ashvale with an overpowering assault of shadow. In the end, Noraiel Sunfire's fires broke her defences and set her blood aflame. "The Sun forsook me!" she cried. "It'll forsake you all!" Meltharian then fell from the cliffside, dying as she hit the rocks below. Later, her body was retrieved by Noraiel and burnt on a makeshift pyre, like the rest of the slain Veilstalkers.

Image

Name: Voidcaller Verithas
Encounter: Zuldazar
Status: Deceased
Description: Since Quel'Thalas banished its Void-practitioners, Alaron Summerdrake has been all too happy to accept them into the ranks of his unit. In fact, he has actively encouraged banished sin'dorei to accept the Void and turn into ren'dorei, finding their Void-corrupted state more acceptable than the fel-tainted forms they otherwise take. Alas, some he has encouraged fall too far into the Void's embrace. Voidcaller Verithas was among those ren'dorei that struggled to fight back the voices in their mind, the endless whispers that harass them. Rather than fight it, he embraced them and thus became more a being of the Void than of flesh. When Grand Admiral Jaina Proudmoore launched the siege of Dazar'alor, Alaron and his elves were all too happy to join and slay the trolls they previously fought on the Isle of Thunder. Voidcaller Verithas came with them, using his dark magic to devour the souls of trolls and dinosaurs alike. When the Sanguine Eye arrived, Verithas turned his Void-magic against them instead, though was defeated and ultimately destroyed by Irelia Sunglance's holy power.

Overseer's Decree: All members of Alaron Summerdrake's unit are considered highly dangerous and should be dealt with swiftly and decisively. However, taking prisoners for questioning is strongly encouraged.

The Screaming Eagle

Postby Talenthiel » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:20 pm

Image

Name: Commander Falnydel Nighthowl
Encounter: Seething Shore, the Veiled Sea, Uldum, Nazmir
Status: Alive
Description: Falnydel Nighthowl was once a druid of the Cenarion Circle, gifted at birth with golden eyes and a talent for nature magic. He was a powerful Druid of the Claw, seeking to protect nature and destroy whatever threatened it. He fought in the War of the Shifting Sands, carrying heavy scars from his battles against the qiraji. However, his affinity with the balanced power of nature began to wane after the death of his two siblings; his sister to Grom's Horde, his brother to Garrosh's Horde. Falnydel's once protective quality soon became a deep-seated hatred. With a body and mind already trained for battle, Falyndel left behind the Cenarion Circle and instead took up sword-and-shield in service of the Alliance, seeking vengeance on the Horde for his slain siblings. After years of service, Falnydel Nighthowl was gifted with the title of Commander and a crew to lead.

The kaldorei first encountered the Sanguine Eye on the Seething Shore, when the Screaming Eagle skirmished with the sin'dorei order. He proved himself a deadly opponent, fighting with focused ferocity, succeeding in routing the elves and killing Eliral Goldwing in the process. However, the Sanguine Eye were a formidable foe and dealt the Screaming Eagle and its crew a great blow during a naval battle, leaving them shipwrecked on Uldum's shore. In the desert, both sides competed to earn azerite from the locals in games of cunning and guile, of which the Screaming Eagle's crew proved quite proficent. However, the Sanguine Eye were the frontrunners in that race and returned home the victors, leaving Falnydel and his crew shipless in Uldum with a failed mission.

After the Sanguine Eye encountered Brother Aidan on the shores of Nazmir and spared him and half his crew, the priest returned the favour. Using draenei crystal communication provided by Inassah, Aidan alerted the Oathsworn that Commander Nighthowl and the Screaming Eagle were closing in on them. Thus, the Iris was forced to drop off the Oathsworn and continue on towards Dazar'alor without stopping, escaping Falnydel's wrath.

Image

Name: Inassah
Encounter: Seething Shore, the Veiled Sea, Uldum, Nazmir
Status: Alive
Description: Inasaah remembers the orcs bloodlust as they tore through the populace of Shattrath City in Draenor, just as much as she remembers the blood elves killing her kin when they stormed Tempest Keep. Despite possessing a cheery disposition, the years of war and suffering have steeled the draenei's resolve against her enemies. With the Burning Legion now defeated, her eyes turn to the Horde as the next greatest threat. Thus she joined Commander Nighthowl's ship, the Screaming Eagle, to help battle the Horde and prevent their acquiring of azerite which she fears they would use for evil purposes. This bought Inassah into direct conflict with the Sanguine Eye on the Seething Shore, where her arcane mastery proved a great obstacle for the Oathsworn when they fought. The draenei easily kept up with even the senior magi amongst the Oathsworn.

However, the Sanguine Eye were a formidable foe and dealt the Screaming Eagle and its crew a devastating blow during a naval battle, leaving them shipwrecked on Uldum's shore. There, both sides competed to earn azerite from the locals in games of cunning and guile, of which Inassah struggled due to her unwillingness to be duplicitous. Ultimately, the Sanguine Eye were the frontrunners in that race and returned home the victors, leaving Inassah and the rest of the Screaming Eagle in Uldum, shipless and with a failed mission. Despite this, Inassah later gave Brother Aidan her communication crystals, which enabled him to alert the Oathsworn that Commander Nighthowl and the Screaming Eagle were closing in on them with intent to attack. Thus, the Iris was able to escape the Alliance warship. She did this only because they spared Brother Aidan and his men in Nazmir.

Image

Name: Grovan Deeprock
Encounter: Seething Shore, the Veiled Sea, Uldum, Nazmir
Status: Alive
Description: Much to the surprise of his dwarven brethren, as well as his own, Grovan ended up in the possession of an Alliance vessel to continue his fight against the forces of the Horde. Even though he cared little for ships and sailing, he could not deny the Screaming Eagle's potential in carrying the dwarf across the globe. This seasoned SI:7 veteran knows the tricks of his trade and his favorite past time hobby - hunting - ensures he is most capable of using the long-range rifle he carries on his back. During the Blood War, Commander Nighthowl was assigned Grovan's ship and the two formed a tight-knit crew of Alliance veterans to fight the Horde and collect what azerite they could. This lead them into direct conflict with the Sanguine Eye at the Seething Shore, which involved several bloody skirmishes and a naval battle that left both ships stranded at Uldum's shore.

During their stay in the desert, Grovan participated in the games of cunning and intrigue to earn the azerite from Uldum's locals, particuarly the Ramkahen. In the end, during a bidding war between the Oathsworn and the Screaming Eagle for the azerite, Grovan threatened the Ramkahen that the Alliance would crush them if they didn't hand over the azerite. This worked against them and caused the Sanguine Eye to win the precious azerite and a ship out of Uldum, leaving the Screaming Eagle stranded. Later when the Screaming Eagle chased the Iris off the shores of Nazmir, Grovan Deeprock had a few of his agents teleported aboard the suspiciously empty-looking vessel. His agents were killed by the Zandalari prelate siblings left on-board, Bo'zan and Hinata.

Image

Name: Brother Aidan
Encounter: Seething Shore, the Veiled Sea, Uldum, Nazmir
Status: Alive
Description: Faithful and charismatic, Brother Aidan proved himself an able-bodied guardian of the refugees in the Arathi Highlands, protecting them against forest trolls, Forsaken and the Syndicate alike. However, when war with the Horde reached a grand scale, Brother Aidan lent his assistance to the Alliance army instead, which bought him beneath Commander Falnydel Nighthowl on the Screaming Eagle, acting as the ship's healer.

He first encountered the Sanguine Eye on the Seething Shore, when the sin'dorei skirmished with the crew of the Screaming Eagle. His power with the Light proved impressive in this battle, shielding and healing his allies with great efficency. However, the Sanguine Eye were a formidable foe and dealt the Screaming Eagle and its crew a great blow, leaving them shipwrecked on Uldum's shore. There, both sides competed to earn azerite from the locals in games of cunning and guile, of which Aidan proved skilled. However, the Sanguine Eye were the frontrunners in that race and returned home the victors, leaving the Screaming Eagle's crew behind in Uldum.

The Eye's reunion with Brother Aidan took place in Nazmir, upon the Mangrove Shore. He lead a scouting party of humans and dwarves to survey the area while the Horde were distracted with an attack in Zuldazar. The Sanguine Eye pounced upon his party, killing half of their number. Irtheas Adhemar showed mercy, however, allowing Brother Aidan and the survivors to leave on the condition they never return to Zuldazar. Due to the 'mercy' shown to him and his men, Brother Aidan returned the favour. Using draenei crystal communication, he alerted the Oathsworn that Commander Nighthowl and the Screaming Eagle were closing in on them. Thus, the Iris was forced to drop off the Oathsworn and continue on towards Dazar'alor without stopping to escape the warship.

Overseer's Decree: Though peace has been declared with the Alliance, the Oathsworn are warned to be careful around the Screaming Eagle, especially Commander Nighthowl. If they prove hostile, they are to be killed.

Boss Bizwindezik the Fifth

Postby Talenthiel » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:39 pm

Image

Name: Boss Bizwindezik the Fifth
Encounter: Seething Shore, Uldum, the Great Sea
Status: Alive
Description: The Sanguine Eye never truly engaged with Boss Bizwindezik the Fifth, or 'Boss Biz' as his workers called him. A Venture Company mogul with a deep interest in azerite, Boss Biz was quick to deploy his agents to the Seething Shore and begin operations to harvest the emerging resource. Unfortunately for him, he wasn't the only one interested in the emerging azerite on the isle and his agents found themselves under attack by both the Sanguine Eye and the Screaming Eagle alike. His second-in-command, a goblin named Tolly, consolidated their collected resources and escaped the isle with the azerite on Tolly's Lockbox, a goblin carrier barge. Thanks to the Sanguine Eye's naval battle with the Screaming Eagle, Tolly's Lockbox had the chance to escape them. Thus, the azerite reached Boss Biz on his pleasure-barge out on the Great Sea. But his enjoyment of the resource was short-lived, as the Sanguine Eye found his ship using a boat lent to them by the Ramkahen. They stormed the ship, fought their way through the Venture Company employees and battled with his pandaren bodyguard, Facebreaker Fuwa. Ultimately, the azerite was stolen and sabotage begun to set off a series of explosions on-board the ship. Boss Biz was forced to retreat via escape pod, eluding a violent death at the Oathsworn's hands.

Overseer's Decree: Though the Sanguine Eye have no real grievance with the goblin mogul, he will be eliminated if he causes them further trouble.

Vethessica

Postby Talenthiel » Sun Sep 29, 2019 1:05 pm

Image

Name: Vethessica
Encounter: Orgrimmar, Tirisfal Glades, the Ghostlands
Status: Unliving
Description: When the world began to weep azerite after Sargeras' fateful blow against Azeroth, the Alliance and Horde both desired to gain full control over the powerful substance. The Warchief set many orders to the task, including the Sanguine Eye, who ventured to the Seething Shore to strike at a Venture Co. operation and collect as much azerite as possible. When they returned with the fruits of their labour, Vethessica was the agent of the Banshee Queen who greeted them. She gladly accepted the azerite and assured the Sanguine Eye they would be rewarded. Ultimately, the Iris was their gift, courtesy of the Horde's new Warchief. However, they soon found themselves on the banshee's leash. Vethessica and her Dark Rangers found the Oathsworn and enlisted them in the defence of the Undercity during the war in Lordaeron, forcing them to fight an ultimately doomed battle. Unfortunately, the banshee survived the conflict and continued to watch the Oathsworn as the Dark Lady's eyes.

When the Sanguine Eye returned from their successful endevour in Tiragarde Sound, Vethessica learned they had gone without once contacting the Horde. Impressed by their successes but displeased by their unwillingness to work with Sylvanas' forces, she visited them in the Ghostland and informed them their next visit to Kul Tiras would be with 'assistance'. Or in other words, 'supervision'. Orithal Shadowspite, a kaldorei Dark Ranger raised in Darkshore, was Vethessica's agent and monitored the Oathsworn closely in Tiragarde Sound. However, he did also assist Irtheas Adhemar in his escape from Tol Dagor and thus helped free them. Thus, the banshee continued to both help and hinder the elves, providing assistance but only for the benefit of the Dark Lady.

With Sylvanas' abandoning of the Horde, Vethessica remained with her mistress, and thus has vanished as well.

Overseer's Decree: Now that Sylvanas is no longer the Warchief, Vethessica is no longer protected. If she causes the Sanguine Eye issue, she is to be destroyed. But beware her proven ability to possess and control bodies.

Captain Penelope Melsine

Postby Talenthiel » Sun Sep 29, 2019 1:50 pm

Image

Name: Captain Penelope Melsine
Encounter: Tiragarde Sound, Tol Dagor, Stormsong Valley
Status: Alive
Description: Penelope Melsine was among the Kul Tiran women who mourned the deaths of their men at Theramore, one of whom was her husband. Following his death, she vowed to carry on his legacy by defending their homeland and keeping Kul Tiras safe, by any means necerssary. She has since climbed the ranks to Captain and helped oversee the defence of Tiragarde Sound from threats within their borders, a duty that lead her to meet the Sanguine Eye. After 'Green Anthony' reported their presence to Penelope, she gathered her regiment and recruited Tidesage Todd Bellson to march south to expunge the Horde threat. However, the Oathsworn proved more troublesome to pin down than she first anticipated. After sparring with Aeetes Vel'derian and Athaelnera Sunoak, both she and her marines were frozen in place and the Sanguine Eye escaped upon the Iris. Later, as the Sanguine Eye took joined their pirate allies to raid the coast of Kul Tiras, their attack on Vigil Hill was interrupted by an approaching Kul Tiran warship, helmed by Captain Melsine. The Oathsworn teleported back to Silvermoon before she could reach them, escaping the seasoned Kul Tiran captain's grasp for a second time.

However, they wouldn't for the third. As the Sanguine Eye helped the stranded Horde forces after a disastrous attack on Tiragarde Sound, they were ambushed by Captain Melsine, Tidesage Bellson and their new ally, Ranger-Captain Alaron Summerdrake. Captain Melsine proved herself a fierce warrior, wielding flail and shield with great prowess, fighting back the Oathsworn and managing to take down Baudo Darksnout in combat. When the Sanguine Eye were defeated, they were taken to Tol Dagor to be imprisoned and questioned by Warden Rhys. While there, she promised they would be treated fairly and showed herself to be considerate and fair. However, the moment Captain Melsine left to hunt down the Sanguine Eye's pirates, Warden Rhys' methods became exceptionally cruel, no longer caged by her sense of right and wrong. She was last reported to be laying siege to Mad Meg's Makrura, the ship of the Cutlas Claws, thus removing one of the Sanguine Eye's corsair allies.

Overseer's Decree: After the events of Tol Dagor, Captain Penelope Mellsine is to be killed on sight.

Priestess Ertha Ironward

Postby Talenthiel » Sun Sep 29, 2019 2:02 pm

Image

Name: Priestess Ertha Ironward
Encounter: Arathi Highlands, Stormsong Valley
Status: Alive
Description: Priestess Ertha Ironward was among the champions of Ironforge sent to support Stromgarde in the name of the Alliance. Under her guidance, the footsoldiers of Stromgarde were empowered by the Light's radiance, leading a successful attack on High Perch that saw the Alliance victorious. She has since stationed herself in Newstead, healing the wounded and overseeing the protection of the Alliance's farmers and workers. In their search for Garnum Smoulderbeard, the Sanguine Eye attacked Newstead alongside the Twenty-Third Division, hoping to retake the strategic location for the Horde and to capture Ertha Ironward. The Bronzebeard priestess proved a mighty adversary, using the Light in many strategic ways to fight back the sin'dorei onslaught. However, once her Light was drained and her barriers broken, the priestess could keep up the fight no longer. Ertha Ironward was knocked out and escorted back to Ar'gorok, while Newstead was left burning. She remained in the Horde's custody when the Thalassian Warhost went on to storm Stromgarde and retake the Arathi Highlands.

Overseer's Decree: If Ertha Ironward should escape her imprisonment, she is to be considered a highly dangerous adversary and should be re-captured or killed.

Y'iiqaath

Postby Talenthiel » Mon Nov 18, 2019 1:57 am

Image

Name: Y'iiqaath
Encounter: Vol'dun, Uldum, Stormsong Valley
Status: Alive
Description: What was first a mission into Vol'dun to find a stolen Reliquary archaeologist became something much more for the Sanguine Eye. After chasing Viperis the Faithless and her sethrak allies across the desert, they eventually cornered her within Atul'Aman and rescued Sardelia Atanarys, but not before her motivations were revealed; she sought to awaken a titan watcher. She succeeded. Uto, Opener of Ways, was reactivated after thousands of years of slumber and chased the Sanguine Eye out of Atul'Aman. But how would a titan watcher help restore the sethrak empire to power? As it turns out, Uto was a piece of a larger plan concocted by Y'iiqaath, a c'thrax in the service of N'Zoth. Using Viperis, he claimed Uto as a prize for his Old God master, sent off to parts of the world unknown. The Sanguine Eye arrived too late to stop Uto and Thunder Lord Xao's escape, but did face Viperis and witnessed the power behind her plans. Y'iiqaath spread madness through the group and assailed them with the Void, though was held back by Alviada Aurivian and Eraevin Blackwood's efforts, thus was unable to fully manifest. When Viperis was finally slain, Y'iiqaath proclaimed that the pieces were now in place, 'all according to His will'. He vanished shortly after, announcing his interest in the Sunwell.

Overseer's Decree: As he is a c'thrax empowered by N'Zoth, Y'iiqaath is incredibly powerful and should not be faced by even a formidable group of Oathsworn without considerable preperation and planning ahead of time.

Mindslayer Xal-ajesh

Postby Talenthiel » Tue Feb 11, 2020 1:52 am

Image

Name: Mindslayer Xal-ajesh
Encounter: Silithus, Uldum
Status: Alive
Description: The Coven of the Sun were the first group to encounter Mindslayer Xal-ajesh. The warlocks found him rallying his silithid drones to harvest azerite within the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, accompanied by a retinue of mind-controlled Twilight Cultists. He proclaimed C'Thun's return, claiming the azerite had nourished his slain god. When the warlocks noticed, he recognised the gift of N'Zoth within some of them and questioned them, their tense discussion eventually leading to conflict as he chased them out of Ah'Qiraj. But not before his azerite collection was set aflame, exploding and thus badly burning the qiraji. While suffering from his near-fatal injuries, Xal-ajesh was approached by a figure who offered him a choice; accept N'Zoth's power, or perish.

Rather than die, Xal-ajesh exchanged loyalty from one Old God to another. Rallying the qiraji and their silithid drones to N'Zoth's cause, Xal-ajesh lead his insectoid army over the mountains of Silithus and into Uldum, joining forces with an existing aqir swarm. His insectoid host sweapt over the dunes, devouring all life and making hatcheries within its ruins. During one such excursion, his swarm encountered the Sanguine Eye within the ruins of Orsis. Xal-ajesh attempted to pierce Leyloriel's Light-barrier and devour the minds of the Oathsworn beneath. Alas, her Light endured and the Sanguine Eye escaped via Athaelnera and Noraiel's teleportation. During the Oathsworn's ventures throughout Uldum, they found themselves constantly harassed by Xal-ajesh's host. From these close encounters, Kaspyn Starsight was able to develop an antidote for the Oathsworn capable of cleansing aqir venom. Rather than suffer the swarm further, the Sanguine Eye instead struck at the heart of their brood.

Riding in the saddles of dragonhawks, the Oathsworn flew to the Obelisk of the Sun, a titan facility where Xal-ajesh's swarm had set up their nest. The sin'dorei scorched the eggs and hatcheries black and held a daring rescue for the stranded Screaming Eagle forces, but found themselves battling the Mindslayer in the process. His magic tore through minds and feasted on sanity, but the combined arsenal of the Oathsworn's magic and their dragonhawks flame held him back, allowing them to escape before the qiraji and his aqir could overrun them.

Overseer's Decree: Despite being gravely injured by the Oathsworn during their last confrontation, Xal-ajesh is still considered highly dangerous foe and should only be engaged with a full group of capable Oathsworn.

Hien the Subjugator

Postby Silvos » Fri Apr 10, 2020 3:06 am

Image

Name: Hien the Subjugator
Encounter: Kun-Lai Summit, Vale of Eternal Blossoms
Status: Unknown
Description: In recent years, as the mogu clans of Pandaria waged war for superiority, more and more mogu were unearthed and awakened in the process. The Dokani clan was among those who rose from the ashes, and Hien played a major part in achieving this. As one of the rare female mogu, a position of leadership was her birthright, though it was Hien's sheer power and brutality that truly beat her fellow Dokani into submission.

Having seized control of a sub-faction of her clan, a group marked by their liking for blood and soul magic, Hien looked to the future. With the chaos provided by N'Zoth's invasion of Pandaria, waging war with other mogu clans seemed like folly. When Thunder Lord Xao, having learned of Hien's notoriety, reached out to forge a pact between her mogu and his Zan-Tien followers she gladly accepted the deal, resulting in a most concerning alliance.

That this alliance did not prove without flaws the Eye uncovered during their recent travels to Pandaria. After witnessing Hien gather a large amount of souls, they infiltrated the Subjugator's base of operations. An underground tomb filled with dead and failed experiments of her soul and fleshcrafting magic. As the Eye explored further, Hien's intent became clear. While conducting a dark ritual, Hien funneled the remaining souls into Thunder Lord Xao to empower him further before the elves' very eyes. In 'gratitude' Xao abandoned Hien to let her deal with the elves in his stead. A bloody battle followed, during which the Eye proved victorious.

Rather than laying down her life on Xao's behalf, Hien yielded and offered the elves a deal. Her life for her aid against the Thunder Lord. If she would fall, her Dokani forces would certainly end up under Xao's command. If she'd live, she could remove her mogu from the battle, and use her magic to dampen Xao's newfound powers. The Overseer agreed, though made sure to plant a Seed of Corruption in Hien's torso, while Celysiel Ashfury wove a void anchor into her mind - both precautions, in case the mogu would not stay true to her word. Much to the dismay of some of the Eye, Hien was then allowed to return to Xao's side - so she may turn against him when the Eye chooses to strike.

It was not until the Eye got a next lead on Thunder Lord Xao, thanks to Guang of the Rajani, that the elves next encountered Hien and her Dokani. Finding access to an underground set of halls and corridors beneath the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, it did not take long before the Eye encountered Dokani and Zan-Tien mogu in their path. Fortunately, Hien had lived up to her end of the bargain. As soon as the Dokani spotted the elves they started to wipe out Xao's Zan-Tien forces, allowing the elves to slip through the fray and towards the chamber in which Xao and Hien were situated. As fighting ensued, Hien worked to diminish Xao's powers, much to the frustration of the Thunder Lord. Deeming the other a traitor, the mogu unleashed the 'chamber' upon her and the elves.

When, after a long and dire battle, Thunder Lord Xao was defeated, Hien deemed her end of the bargain upheld. Expecting the elves to turn on her next, she sought to renegotiate their deal. Calling in her remaining Dokani forces, the already haggard elves of the Eye suddenly stood face to face with a small army. Hien demanded to be released from Tal'enthiel and Celysiel's spells, in turn for ordering her forces to stay their blades. After a failed attempt to make Hien's forces rise up against her, Thestas Duskcry detonated the Seed of Corruption that was implanted within Hien's form. A burst of verdant fire followed, and Hien collapsed into her army's ranks.

This was all the Dokani mogu required to be unleashed. Drawing blades and calling upon blood magic, the mogu charged at the Eye, attacking any they found in their path. The elves were forced to retreat via a portal conjured by Athaelnera Sunoak, though not before many an other injury were inflicted upon the elves. Whether the blast of the Seed of Corruption indeed managed to kill Hien the Subjugator remains uncertain.

Overseer's Decree: If Hien did indeed survive the Seed of Corruption's detonation, then she is to be considered highly dangerous and should only be engaged by a group of skilled Oathsworn.

Ril'arhja

Name: Ril'arhja
Encounter: Nazjatar, Stormsong Valley
Status: Alive
Description: Ril’arhja and the Sanguine Eye have crossed paths on numerous occasions, from the forests of Azshara to the depths of Nazjatar, though often with little more than vague mention or fleeting glance. Now, with the vanishing of their Queen and N’Zoth’s reach encompassing the world, this enigmatic naga has left behind her shadows to take a more active role in shaping the future for her people. Though flirtatious and whimsical by nature, she is an ancient and powerful Shirakess sorceress unrivalled even amongst the Sea Witch’s retinue, harnessing intrinsic command of the Void to guide and advise Sea Witch Khaleshj’s hand.

It was through her that the Sanguine Eye learned of Khaleshj’s intent to return to Stormsong Valley, but she would not give up a pinpoint location before they set sail. The elves did not see a single naga for nearly a week before Ril’arhja arrived to their aid, helping thwart a failed Veilstalker ambush upon the hills overlooking the Shrine of the Storm. Questioned by Silvos Bloodcrest, the Oathsworn now know the Shrine is where Khaleshj and her naga are based, though for how long and what purpose remains uncertain. After assuring the Blood Lord she would ‘look into’ the prospect of harrying the tidesages of Sagehold under Todd Bellson’s influence, Ril’arhja took her leave once more - but if their history of dealings with naga is wont to repeat itself, the Shirakess is certain to expect something in return.

Overseer's Decree: Ril'arhja is believed to be the influence behind Eraevin Blackwood's betrayal and is considered highly dangerous. If encountered by a group of Oathsworn, it is imperative that she is killed.
