Appearance and Personality
Ageya'mukhi is the matron of the Val'Balvhakara clan who shares a similar culture to the Val'Beldrobbaen: her hair, eyes and accessories are pitch black, but the matriarch wears thin, yellow clothing that is almost see-through enough to show her frail build. During war the matriarch dons her clan's special power armor and her weapons of choice are mana daggers. When not in war, Agneya is almost never seen without her two female Emberi child attendants.
Agneya'mukhi's personality is best described as aggressive, and it reflects in the pro-war stance the clan usually takes in Nuqrah'sharian politics. She is quick to call out others on their mistakes, and is the first one to call for blood--Agneyha'mukhi and Balsii Val'Illhar'dro often take the same stances which are geared towards warfare and harsher actions. This leads her to sometimes be at odds with Nega'fanea Val'Illhar'dro who calls for much peaceful actions. Zala'ess once joked that Agneya'mukhi would fight right in as a Chelian Illhar.
The Nuqrah'shareh Civil War brought the city into a crisis of riots, food shortages and doubts about the strength of the ruling clan in the face of waves of Chelians bringing strife to the normally peaceful nation. Agneya'mukhi herself almost becomes a hostage when Balsii attempts to capture herself and Nega'fanea during the coup, but the matriarch was reach for such a case with Balvhakara soldiers waiting on the rooftops.
When Zala'ess Vel'Sharen arrives with her own forces to aid the Queen, at first Agneya'mukhi and Shi'tua Jie'yen are doubtful; The Balvhakara leader expresses extreme doubt about the Vel'Sharen's capabilities when their own city is in chaos. The leaders also point out her claim to the Empress title, stating that Zala'ess has Sarv'swati Vel'Sharen to contend with for the crown. Agneya and Shi'tua are still not convinced and believe their own forces are enough to aid Nega'fanea but Zala'ess is able to convince the matrons that the Vel'Sharen's support IS needed, and the four leaders go on to devise a plan of attack on the Illhar'dro main palace. Once the civil war is successfully turned in Nega'fanea's favor and Balsii comes to the Jie'yen isle to so deference, despite having once been a great friend of Balsii the matriarch immediately calls for her death as punishment for her actions.
“The Chelian empress is said to have never left her home in more than fifty years. What reason brings her here with armed troops after so long, if not to find refuge like so many from her empire did?! Has she failed so badly in her war against the rogue clans that she would abandon her homeland?!” – Upon meeting the self-crowned Empress of Chel'el'Sussoloth.
