Tal'raedra is a Jaal'darya diplomat working at the behest of Ill'haress Asira'malika Val'Jaal'darya.
Appearance & Personality
Tal'raedra is a tall and thin drowolath with tan hair styled into three braided ponytails and a pair of bangs. Her eyes are solid blue with slit irises, showing signs of heavy Jaal'darya body-modification. She wears ornately decorated robes and a taloned gauntlet on her right hand. She is a haughty and greedy individual, well-suited to pushing the Val'Jaal'darya clan's agenda abroad. However, she is not without compassion or respect, and dutifully obeys the commands of her Ill'haress.
The Flower Plague
She first appeared during the height of the Beldrobbaen Flower Plague, Jaal'darya aid having been requested by the Beldrobbaen servant caste at the behest of Waes'soloth. Though Hile'wen greeted the Jaal'darya envoy with cold mistrust, Tal'raedra wasted little time in rebuking her for her attitude in a time of crisis. Quickly explaining the nature of the toxin and it's origin, Tal'raedra demanded to be taken to Waes'soloth that treatment might be promptly administered. As they arrived at the room in which Waes'soloth had sealed herself and the poisoner, Naubol'oth broke the sealed entrance and allows both Waes'soloth and the young Val to exit together. The deranged Val's mind having broken under the strain of her actions, Waes'soloth commanded that Nau'boloth take the girl to a quiet place to rest before turning her attention to Tal'raedra.
Willing to accept Jaal'darya assistance, but suspicious of their motives, Waes'soloth asked Tal'raedra what the treatment would cost her already-weakened clan. Tal'raedra bluntly informed her that normally the price would be all they own, but that Ill'haress Asira'malika sees the threat of Snadhya'rune's manipulation as one that the clans must stand united against. Bowing respectfully, Tal'raedra then provided Waes'soloth with an honest assessment of the treatment's effectiveness, noting it's experimental nature makes saving those already severely infected unlikely.
"If we had not been working on this problem already, your clan would have been doomed to become an asylum for insane fools." - Arriving at the Val'Beldrobbaen Fortress with an early treatment for the Flower Plague.
