Thalestris Azaeloth Val'Beldrobbaen
Appeared in chapters 49
- Former Imperial Guard
The ancient Dev'ess of the Azaeloth house.
Appearance & Personality
Thalestris is an incredibly aged Dark Elf with gray hair and pale purple eyes. It appears she is suffering from the earlier stages of mana deprivation, likely due to her advanced age and the relative isolation of the Val'Beldrobbaen. She is a staunch traditionalist and strongly set in her ways, with a ruthlessly pragmatic streak regarding threats to her house and clan.
She is first seen as one of only two Dev'esses to attend Waes'soloth's summons following the Puppeteer Incident. Agitated by the lack of attendance, she moves to adjourn the meeting before being over-ruled by Waes. As reports come in of erratic behavior from the other houses, Waes sends couriers to demand explanations, but is interrupted by a report from Verthandi regarding the flower poison and Snadhya'rune's offer of a cure.
With the nature of the threat now clear, Thalestris takes her leave to initiate a purge of the infected houses. At least one tower is collapsed before Waes'soloth opens the fortress to aid from Jaal'darya, who claim to have experimental treatments to the infection.
"We must kill the few to save the many." -In response to the spread of infection within the Beldrobbaen fortress.
