Moonless Age Character
Portrait of Balsii Val'Illhar'dro
Race: Drowolath
Current Status
Militant Illhar'dro ruler of Nuqrah'shareh
  • Spellsong

The formal leader of Nuqrah'shareh for 31 years and Nega'fanea's cousin. She has grown tired of foreigners tearing her city apart and has waged a civil war against Illhar'dro loyal to her relative.

Appearance & Personality

Balsii is part of a more militant branch of the normally peaceful Illhar'dro, using forceful means to solve problems. She sports dark teal hair and carries an umbrella with a hidden blade in the pommel. Balsii also appears to have negativity towards other Illhar'dro not born in Nuqrah'shareh, as seen when she refers to Nega'fanea as an "incompetent Ravenite-born Queen" and Sandaur as a "Chelian Illhar'dro" that wouldn't understand the situation.


Unable to bear seeing her beautiful city torn to shreds by refugees from Chel'el'Sussoloth bringing the war to Illhar'dro borders, Balsii had decided that it was the best course of action to close Nuqrah'shareh's doors to foreigners before things got worse. However, Queen Nega'fanea does not want to use force on the rioters and prefers to find a peaceful solution via searching for the missing caravans to give much needed food to the commoners--there was an Underworld-wide lack of resources for a mysterious reason, and Nega believed that the commoners were rioting because of this. Fed up with her cousin's pacifism, Balsii attempts to take the leadership of the clan by force by trying to kill Nega'fanea and capture Agneya'mukhi Balvhakara and Quian Jie'yen. Sandaur tries to stop her, but Balsii uses spellsong to order her guards to kill him too, one of which was Shodun Val'Illhar'dro.

Some time later, Balsii gives the order to kill the Val captives in the Illhar'dro Palace consisting of Jhal'na and her son Sorane, Yafein, the ambassador from the Jie'yen and Nyo'ka's son and daughter. She gives a special order to dismember Jhal'na and send the body parts to Nega'fanea in a small box.

When new reaches that the Sharen are aiding loyalists against the rebels, Balsii goes to seek help from Commander Rei'shiid Recherrai Val'Illhar'dro, but is unable to convince the hardened soldier. Instead, the response Balsii gets is advice to surrender if she loves the clan, for the war would have terrible consequences on the entirety of the Illhar'dro empire. These words stung, but Rei'shiid was right--both Balsii and the commander decide to seek out Nega'fanea to surrender in exchange for information on who was backing the coup.
