Appearance and Personality
Vy'chriel is a determined but insecure Sharen. She is commoner-born and constantly strives to please her adopted mother, Zala'ess. Though she sometimes acts hastily, everything she does is an act of loyalty to her clan and to her line. She wants desperately to earn her place as a noble in the Vel'Sharen ranks.
Vy'chriel is cocky, proud, and relentless. A golem made from the remains of her sister follows her command. She has long teal hair that is spiky on top and braided in the back, and she carries an elaborate black staff adorned with three red rings. Her eyes are tainted red.
Vy'chriel and Yaeminira
Vy'chriel used to be a protector twin named Yaeminira. Her sister, the real Vy'chriel, was stubborn but adored by her mother Zala'ess. When tainting became a mandatory process for all Vel'Sharen summoners, the true-born Vy'chriel refused to undergo the process. Zala'ess never forced her daughter's hand, but constantly tried to persuade her to become tainted like the rest of the clan. Though Vy'chriel still refused, Yaeminira underwent the tainting process and argued with her sister about her loyalty to the clan. Despite the girls' actions, Zala'ess still only ever rewarded Vy'chriel and chastised Yaeminira.
Eventually, Yaeminira became sick of bending over backwards for the clan while Vy'chriel only ever did as she pleased. She attacked Vy'chriel, and her enhanced nether summoning tactics easily overwhelmed her sister. She killed Vy'chriel, and Zala'ess sought to punish her gravely. However, Sarv'swati intervened on Yaeminira's behalf and convinced Zala'ess to allows Yaeminira to take Vy'chriel's place. A golem was made from Vy'chriel's remains to serve as the new protector twin. Yaeminira became Vy'chriel and Vy'chriel became Yaeminira.
Earning Zala'ess' Respect
Despite the official change, Zala'ess refused to see Vy'chriel as her new daughter. She never forgave her for killing the real Vy'chriel and was often unfair in her punishments to her. This only made Vy'chriel further crave her mother's approval, prompting her to go above and beyond to get Zala'ess to notice her merit.
Without Zala'ess' knowledge, she hatched a plan to spur a war between the Val'Kyorl'solenurn and the Vel'Vloz'ress clans. She kidnapped Kami'seide Kyorl'solenurn and delivered her to Ill'haress Kharla'ggen Vel'Vloz'ress to be turned into a living doll. She somehow convinced Kharla to deliver this doll to the Val'Kyorl'solenurn Ill'haress Shimi'lande while Vy'chriel herself opened a nether gate in a common district. The demons that came through the gate eradicated a Val'Sarghress patrol and several civilian casualties occurred. The Val'Kyorl'solenurn clan took the bait and blamed both occurrences on the Vel'Vloz'ress, prompting a hunt for heretics lead by Ky'ovarde Val'Kyorl'solenurn.
Zala'ess, however, reprimanded Vy'chriel for this plot. Zala'ess saw that that Val'Sarghress were likely to view it as a Vel'Sharen attack and would likely advance their preparations for war with the Sharen. Vy'chriel was upset that Zala'ess still refused to give her any credit and vowed to do anything it would take for Zala'ess to see her as a true noble.
Zala'ess gave Vy'chriel a special mission to prove her worth. She was sent to the Val'Sarghress fortress to find and kill Sil'lice Val'Sharen. Vy'chriel and the golem Yaeminira encountered Ant'alya Sarghress on their way to the fortress, and they killed her mercilessly.
When they arrived at the Sarghress, Vy'chriel opened a nether gate that wreaked havoc on the unsuspecting Sarghress troops. She called Sil'lice out directly and challenged her to a duel. Before fighting, Sil'lice tried to convince Vy'chriel that the Vel'Sharen clan was corrupt and that Zala'ess had only sent her here to die. Vy'chriel refused to listen to Sil'lice's words and the two fought. Vy'chriel proved to be n match for Sil'lice, and was quickly frozen to death in the Val'Sarghress courtyard.
"You will be the one to serve me... I will take your place Vy'chriel, and I swear you will take mine. You will protect me even if you do not want to." -As Yaeminira, gloating over her dying sister.
"Mother, what can I possibly do to win your approval? What can I do to make you forget about Yae... Vy'chriel? Tell me and I will do it! Anything!" -To Zala'ess Vel'Sharen
