Biography - Arc II

Caring for Vaelia's Children

Nihemo first appeared as the caretaker Vaelia elected to leave her children with when called to deploy to Dariya'ko with a squad of Highland Raiders. Nihemo quickly deduced the reason for Vaelia's visit, noting four other children to have been dropped off the very same morning. Leaving a small pack with payment inside, Vaelia directed her attention to Kenro, instructing him to stay behind and help Nihemo care for his sister. She further instructed him to take his sister and go with the next caravan to Haltonreibe should she not return by the next moon, trusting Nihemo to take the pair to their father.

Fortunately, Vaelia returned from her mission unharmed and the Nihemo was able to return the children to their loving mother.[1]

Life in Machike

She is later revealed to have continued living in Machike as a group of Vaelia's people formed a small town within the colony. With the larger number of children in the growing colony, she has been serving to teach the drow language to the children of the town.[2]
