Ky'ovarde is a Warden of the [[Orders:Kyorl'solenurn#Order of the Twin Eyes|Order of the Twin Eyes]] – one of the many different Orders in the [[Val'Kyorl'solenurn]] clan. Though different Orders vie for being the True Path of the Goddess, Ky'ovarde's group seems a mix of more militant mind sets – all tainted are to be slain, heretic hunts are acceptable even with non-targeted clans – and a few more moderate views – one of their members is a half-breed named [[Sang'oro Kyorl'solenurn|Sang'oro]], so perhaps they are at least willing to let individuals prove themselves. Ky'ovarde herself seems to be a mix of these views, though often her words show an approach so fanatical that she sees some heretical acts as acceptable if they further the cause of the Goddess.

{{Character
Ky'ovarde is rather tall and dyes her hair auburn with black streaks (or tips for her bangs). She wears part of it up in a flat bun on the back of her head that uses sheathed daggers to hold it together – or perhaps the bun holds up the daggers in the end. Her outfit is a mix of violet and white, with dark gauntlets. The base color of her hair seems to match her one visible eye. The other eye is covered with a flap of cloth that would act as a double bandanna for the head. The lines around that eye suggests it is damaged or gone. Ky'ovarde's remaining eye is stylized to have a smaller iris and pupil compared to the size of the cornea, possible to show a shrewed, hawk-eyed attention to detail or to bring out her fanatical tunnel vision.

Ky'ovarde first is mentioned in Chapter 10, though not seen, as [[Tir'ade Kyorl'solenurn]] returns from patrol to announce a gate has been opened in an area of the [[Nidraa'chal]] War Ruins now under control of the [[Val'Sarghress]] clan. [[Chirinide Val'Kyorl'solenurn]] recognizes him from her dream, so she volunteers to go with him instead of the Templar searching out Ky'ovarde. The individual with similar colored hair and a missing eye in the Prologue was confirmed as not being Ky'ovarde in the chibi comic following that chapter.

Ky'ovarde is summoned to Ilharess [[Shimi'lande Val'Kyorl'solenurn]]'s throne room later, where she is charged with hunting down any Vloz'ress found outside the safety of their own lands in retaliation to what was done to [[Kami'seide Kyorl'solenurn]] – a poor Warden who was captured and turned into a doll by Ilharess [[Kharla'ggen Vel'Vloz'ress]] before being delivered to the Kyorl'solenurn. The Ilharess seems to stress it be Vloz'ress that would normally be captured for wandering in neutral zones, not a full out attack on the Vloz'ress lands or in territory that another clan may take offense over. Ky'ovarde takes the mission with delight.

The Warden brings with her a group of Order of the Twin Eyes members, Drowussu she seems to have worked with previously and may be of her own personal unit. This consists of Inquisitor [[Ae'theriss Kyorl'solenurn|Ae'theriss]], Crusader [[Ano'toti Kyorl'solenurn|Ano'toti]], Templar Sang'oro, Warden [[Mili'ani Kyorl'solenurn|Mili'ani]] and Templar [[Ron'nae Kyorl'solenurn|Ron'nae]]. However, Inquisitor [[Desmonde Kyorl'solenurn|Desmonde]] of the [[Orders:Kyorl'solenurn#Order of the Holy Eye|Order of the Holy Eye]] accompanies them, possibly to enforce the requirement that they only target errant, free-roaming tainted, especially Vloz'ress. Her existence with the group shows some worry on Shimi'lande's part of Ky'ovarde's ability to follow instructions versus her own personal desires/beliefs.

==Appearance and Personality==
 +
Ky'ovarde is a tall female drowussu with a powerful build and a yellow eye. She covers the loss of her right eye with a purple cloth band worn as an eyepatch. She has brown hair, though she dyes the front bangs black. She is rarely seen outside of her Warden's armor. In terms of personality, she is brutal and completely ruthless. She is devoted to the Kyorl'solenurn cause, and as a Warden pursued it with a fanatical zeal. She displayed very few scruples in carrying out her duty, willing to openly wield nether sorcery if it meant more efficiently cutting down her Order's foes. She is not without emotion, however, and does display occasional moments of grim humour.

Many of these darker personality traits stem from the events of the first Kyorl'solenurn schism,<ref>{{ChapterRef|49|93}}</ref> during which she lost her right eye, her [[Mana_Arts#Prescience|sight]], her Holy Mother, and even her Templar.<ref>{{ChapterRef|49|99}}</ref> This trauma greatly embittered and hardened Ky'ovarde, leading to a darker turn to her personality.

While by this point she was more willing to forgive others, she was now unable to forgive herself for the acts she had committed in the name of her clan and her faith.
  
Ky'ovarde has tracked a group of demon-hunting Vloz'ress into the wilds outside of [[Chel'el'Sussoloth]], moving along the trade routes of the Sarghress. Ae'theriss is able to detect both the traveling Sarghress and this group of demon hunters, of whom she is able to determine [[Sene'kha Vel'Vloz'ress]] as a leader. This proves to be a great prize for the Heretic Hunters, though they are reminded not to make a purity search of the Sarghress by Desmonde. Ron'nae volunteers to go on ahead to scout the area and engage any Vloz'ress wandering free of the group, and he encounters [[Kuso Vloz'ress|Kuso]] and [[Baliir Vloz'ress]]. Kuso flees to warn Sene'kha, which could cause more trouble for the Heretic Hunters.

==Biography - Arc I==
<br><br>

===Hunting the Vloz'ress===
The group is baited into a trap by a demon posing as Sene'kha. They are beset by tainted wolf summons and a band of Vloz'ress lead by Sene'kha's mate, [[Kess'sen Vloz'ress]]. Ky'ovarde leaves her fellows to handle the other attackers while she closes a gate that Ae'theriss has warned her about. As with Chirinide earlier, she worries if she can close the gate in time, possibly showing that the amount of effort needed to close a large gate can easily extend beyond the mana capacity of a Warden, or that the soulmir that Wardens carry do have limited capacity.
+
Ky'ovarde first appeared after [[Kami'seide Kyorl'solenurn|an acquaintance]] of Holy Mother [[Shimi'lande Val'Kyorl'solenurn|Shimi'lande]] was brought before her by mercenaries in the employ of the [[Vloz'ress]] clan, having been horrifically transformed into a living doll by [[Kharla'ggen Vel'Vloz'ress|Kharla'ggen]]. Enraged, Shimi'lande ordered the hapless mercenaries removed from her sight and Ky'ovarde summoned before her.<ref>{{ChapterRef|11|25}}</ref> Unaware the gruesome scene had been orchestrated by [[Vy'chriel Vel'Sharen|an agent]] of the [[Vel'Sharen]],<ref>{{ChapterRef|11|34}}</ref> Shimi'lande succumbed to the blatant provocation and ordered Ky'ovarde to lead a mission to purge the Vloz'ress summoners operating from outside the protection of their fortress.<ref>{{ChapterRef|11|28}}</ref>
<br><br>
 
After closing the gate, she faces off against Sene'kha using sealed demons to create a blade that feeds off her own body and blood to form. Sene'kha taunts the Warden as being a heretic for using demonic powers, while Ky'ovarde reasons that if she is using the demons to do the will of the Goddess, then it is acceptable – this displays the fine line where fanaticism becomes heresy within itself. Vloz'ress members such as Baliir note that the Vloz'ress do what they do for the greater good of Drow, and even their former leader studied possessed beings to better prepare the race. Likewise, the use of evil to fight it being acceptable to Ky'ovarde is a sign she does not think that differently despite what she tells herself. It also shows that Wardens are practically Velnari themselves, as learning the mechanics of sealing gates and demons are part of what it takes to be a Summoner.

Just as with Kes'sen and San'goro, the fight turns out to be a stalemate. The battle comes to a halt however when a group of Sarghress lead by De'vess [[Quill'yate Yurun'hiir Sarghress]] arrives, after being alerted to enemies in the area by a group of attacking dwarves. Sene'kha appears to over-stretch herself by deciding to open another portal to take the Sarghress group out as well. The distraction allows Ky'ovarde to strike Sene'kha and wound her badly. However, the Order of the Twin Eye escape with a wounded Desmonde, and the Vloz'ress escape sans Sene'kha.
+
Ky'ovarde would soon depart with several fellow members of [[Order of the Twin Eyes|her Order]]; Warden [[Mili'ani Kyorl'solenurn|Mili'ani]], Inquisitor [[Ae'theriss Kyorl'solenurn|Ae'theriss]], Templars [[Sang'oro Kyorl'solenurn|Sang'oro]] and [[Ron'nae Kyorl'solenurn|Ron'nae]], and Crusader [[Ano'toti Kyorl'solenurn|Ano'toti]]. The group was also accompanied by Inquisitor [[Desmonde Kyorl'solenurn|Desmonde]] of the [[Order of the Holy Eye]], whose task was to ensure the mission focused solely on eliminating the Vloz'ress and did not target other factions that might also be encountered.<ref>{{ChapterRef|12|13}}</ref>
<br><br>
 
As the Highland Raiders approach [[Machike'shikumo]], Ky'ovarde announces that someone will need to be sent back for the rest of the Order of the Twin Eyes and a clan ambassador. This is done within a short time and a Judicator with an entourage of troops from the Order arrives to negotiate with the Sarghress for Sene'kha just as Ariel's group is leaving the outpost. When their wish is granted, Ky'ovarde is given the honors of beheading the former lead Nether Summoner and sealing Sene'kha's seed as the body is set alight, purged by fire.

Ky'ovader is a former Warden of the radical Order of the Twin Eyes. Following the ascension of Anahid to power, she has gone into self-imposed Exile, seeing herself as unworthy of her clan.

Appearance and Personality

Ky'ovarde is a tall female drowussu with a powerful build and a yellow eye. She covers the loss of her right eye with a purple cloth band worn as an eyepatch. She has brown hair, though she dyes the front bangs black. She is rarely seen outside of her Warden's armor. In terms of personality, she is brutal and completely ruthless.

She displayed very few scruples in carrying out her duty, willing to openly wield nether sorcery if it meant more efficiently cutting down her Order's foes. She is not without emotion, however, and does display occasional moments of grim humour.

Many of these darker personality traits stem from the events of the first Kyorl'solenurn schism,[1] during which she lost her right eye, her sight, her Holy Mother, and even her Templar.[2] This trauma greatly embittered and hardened Ky'ovarde, leading to a darker turn to her personality.

Biography - Arc I

Hunting the Vloz'ress

Ky'ovarde first appeared after an acquaintance of Holy Mother Shimi'lande was brought before her by mercenaries in the employ of the Vloz'ress clan, having been horrifically transformed into a living doll by Kharla'ggen. Enraged, Shimi'lande ordered the hapless mercenaries removed from her sight and Ky'ovarde summoned before her.[3] Unaware the gruesome scene had been orchestrated by an agent of the Vel'Sharen,[4] Shimi'lande succumbed to the blatant provocation and ordered Ky'ovarde to lead a mission to purge the Vloz'ress summoners operating from outside the protection of their fortress.[5]

Ky'ovarde would soon depart with several fellow members of her Order; Warden Mili'ani, Inquisitor Ae'theriss, Templars Sang'oro and Ron'nae, and Crusader Ano'toti. The group was also accompanied by Inquisitor Desmonde of the Order of the Holy Eye, whose task was to ensure the mission focused solely on eliminating the Vloz'ress and did not target other factions that might also be encountered.[6]
