Tebryn Teuzt'sor Sarghress
- Water affinity
- Dyed her hair to match the surface sky
A veteran Highland Raider who assisted Ariel during her journey on the surface.
Appearance and Personality
Tebryn is a huge, muscular drow with a long blue braid and red bangs. She has heterochromia; her left eye is purple and her right eye is green. She is extremely easy-going and full of life, with a near-constant broad smile upon her face.
Tebryn is a member of a squad of Highland Raiders ordered by Commander Quill'yate to follow Ariel on her journey to find Faen. They track Ariel's party from a distance until they find obvious signs of a struggle. Working quickly, they track Ariel's aura to a Halme castle. Suspecting the worst, they attack, unknowingly creating the opening Ariel needed to free Faen. They met up with the young heir, congratulating her on her victory, and escorted her party back home to the Sarghress Fortress.
During the return trip, the group encounters the remains of a ravaged caravan, with evidence of the attack pointing to the work of the Siyah'khorshed. Interrogation of a surviving merchant reveals a certain level of disharmony in Chel, although the group is able to return to Sarghress territory without further incident. Once there, she is witness to Quain'tana's brutal punishment of Mel'arnach.
As the Sarghress push through the Sharen forces as the Council Dome, Tebryn is among the first Sarghress soldiers to breach Diva'ratrika's throne room and discover her mummified body. The sight leaves a dark impression upon the otherwise cheerful soldier.
Later, as the Zala'ess' Sharen Alliance move to negotiate, Tebryn is selected as a Sarghess Dragonslayer to provide a personal escort to Quain'tana herself, alongside Zith. Negotiations begin poorly as Quain'tana enters and bluntly addresses Zala'ess as motherkiller, angering the Sharen aids present. Matters further falter as a large Balvhakara wargolem breaks the roof of the meeting room, directly threatening the trio.
To prevent further escalation, Zala'ess simply apologizes to Quain'tana, infuriating the Sarghress leader. As Zala begins to spin Ash'waren's motives, Quain'tana finally loses all patience, grasping Zala'ess tightly by the jaw and forcing her to order everyone else out of the room. As Tebryn leaves, she turns to Zala'ess with an uncharacteristic anger and affirms that she knows full well what the daughters did to the late Empress.
Demon God Incident
Shortly thereafter, Ni'bai enacts her plot to use Kharla to control the power of a Demon God, and Tebryn is one of the many overtaken in what would later be called the Puppeteer Incident. No longer in control of their bodies, she and sith were forced to make an attempt on Quain'tana's life, but the mighty Sarghress leader was able to defeat the pair without killing them. Unfortunately, their wolves were not so fortunate, and had to be cut down while protecting their masters.

Outside of Moonless Age
Note: The details that follow may not be canon to the story of Moonless Age.
Martial Style: Fighting with her axe at close range, and using the golem blades on her wrists as a last resort to keep an enemy from coming too close. She is well versed with heavy infantry tactics, like shield wall and group shielding, and has also learned to use a naginata. As she left the heavy infantry she left the naginata behind, but she has kept the axe and wrist golems as she is fairly good with that combination.
Mana Skill: Water element affinity. She has been trained in the team-cast mana shield which the heavy infantry use to protect themselves against arrows, and has received some basic training with water sorcery.
Special Skill: Mapmaking. She is good at remembering locations and routes and putting them down on paper/other material once she comes back to base. She takes notes when she walks, whenever possible, to ease the process.
Tebryn is a minor noble of the Val'Sarghress clan. In her early years she was taunted for her mismatched eyes, the only resemblance she bears to her father, and the only hint as to his identity. She quickly grew taller and stronger and the other kids grew quiet. She was raised in a proper way for a noble, with private tutors teaching her everything her mother believed to be proper for a noble to be proficient at. Her affinity for the water element was discovered when she had just passed twenty, and she received some basic training with its use, as befitted her station.
At age thirty, she left her silk dresses and haughty noble attitude behind, and joined the Heavy Infantry, where she would stay for nearly forty years. She gained a memorable tattoo and the respect of her fellow heavies through hard work and commitment. However, close to forty years on she was getting bored, and her mother kept urging her to look further, to gain rank and respect both for herself and their house.
Tebryn made the decision to transfer to the raiders after a chance meeting with Kiira'liss, which the younger raider remembers nothing of even though Tebryn likely saved her life that evening. A few months after this meeting Tebryn said good bye to her mate, and set off to the surface with the Highland Raiders. There, her mapping skills were put to good use, and she was assigned to map a section of Chel'el'Sussoloth with a small squad of raiders upon their return.
