Biography

14th-26th Day, 6th Moon - Nuqrah'shareh Civil War

She is first seen alongside her sisters during the Nuqrah'shareh Civil War, aiding the rebellion led by Balsii. Under the command of Kalki, the trio are able to retrieve a powerful ancient weapon from the Illhar'dro: The Ancient Airship. Simultaneously, by flaunting their Sullisin'rune heritage, the trio is able to pin the blame for the rebellion upon the Sarghress alliance.

In an attempt to prevent it's theft, Zala'ess sends a team comprised of Chrys'tel, Nau'kheol, Yami'ni, Jiaan, and Quar'imar to reclaim the vessel. However, while the group is able to infiltrate the airship, they are overwhelmed by the powerful emapthy of the three sisters. In the ensuing Skirmish, Yami'ni is slain, and Jiaan is captured. With the rest of the Sharen team retreating, the Nidraa'chal agents are able to take off in their prize just as the Illhar'dro launch a last-ditch artillery barrage in an attempt to prevent it's theft.

After reaching the surface, they are able to sow further discord by using the captured airship to bombard Saosh Colony, further inciting conflict between the Sarghress and Nuqrah'shareh.

6-7th Day, 7th Moon - Felde Gathering

Upon arriving in Felde, it is revealed the trio have been mentally torturing Jiaan in an attempt to break his will. An attempt largely successful, and with Bae'rali taking an especially sadistic pleasure in the process. Having successfully delivered the airship to Snadhya'rune, the three are promptly tasked with aiding in the interrogation of Erelice.

The next day, the three are present at the dinner Snadhya'rune has with Ariel. After Kalki's bout of jealous insanity leaves Ariel critically wounded, Faen lashes out protectively with empathy, an effort the trio negates with trivial ease.

Shortly thereafter, Kavahini warriors from Mimaneid launch a full assault upon the gathering, with the bulk of their forces focusing on the airship. While the Kavahini succeed in disabling the craft, they are unable to hold their vessel, as the three sisters counter attack with a ferociously powerful emapthy assault. The bulk of the surviving Kavahini fall back to the World Tree as their force is routed.

Mission to Chel

After the conclusion of the gathering, the trio are sent to Chel to disrupt the Sarghress/Sharen alliance. As Sil'lice spearheads an assault upon Shadhya'rune's tower, the three sisters launch another of their linked emapthy attacks upon the besieging Sarghress forces, allowing nether summons and golems to cause massive casualties to the disoriented troops. However, Nishi'kanta is quickly able to locate the three. As Bae'rali is forced to split off from the link to deal with her, Mae'rali and Sae'rali focus even further to compensate. Though Bae'rali is able to stall Nishi'kanta with emapthy, the distraction serves to allow Sil'lice to arrive unnoticed. Before the sisters are aware of her presence, she stabs Sae'rali in the chest with a sword, breaking the empathy link entirely. With Sae'rali disabled, Sil'lice quickly turns her attention to Mae'rali, gravely wounding her with a combination of bladework and Ice Sorcery. Though the three sisters are saved from further injury by the timely arrival of Mel'arnach and Shodun, their empathy assault is broken.

Sharen Sibling Showdown at the Nal'Sarkoth Fortress

After surviving the assault on Snadya'rune's tower, the three Sul sisters are found escorting Snadya'runes to a meeting with the Viri'sylvia Val'Nal'sarkoth regarding trade between Chel and Felde. The triplets taunted Shinae Vel'Sharen, forcing her to smile using their empathy [1]. Shortly afterwards, an alert was sounded, announcing that the Nal'sarkoth compound was being invaded by an unknown intruder.

Snadya'runes quickly set her subordinates into motion, setting an ambush for the intruders, who turned out to be a party consisting of her sister, Nishi'kanta, her niece Chrys'tel, An'jin and Sara'hilana. During the ambush, Snadya's group was counter-ambushed, with the Sul sisters being surprised by a blast from Sara's mana cannon. Bae'rali took the brunt of the damage, allowing her sisters to escape the fight [2]. They quickly moved to Snadya's quarters, where they spotted Shinae chasing her sister down the hallway and towards the balcony.

The pair of empaths joined them on the balcony, and began a powerful empathy attack on Chrys'tel in order to drive her to suicide by leaping off of the balcony. When Shinae refused to follow their orders to throw her sister over the railing, they turned their attack on Shinae, attempting to force her to comply[3]. This proved disastrous for the Suls, as Shinae retaliated by throwing Sae'rali over the railing to her death instead of Chrys'tel. Mae'rali became enraged, calling the Sharen renegade a traitor and attempted to focus another empathy attack on her. Shinae was able to resist the empathic attack and blasted Mae'rali with a powerful, point-blank pressure blast, fatally smashing the empath into the wall [4].
