This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!
Appeared in chapters 34
Frehling is an independent wordweaver, or author, that accompanied Chrys'tel and Nau'kheol as they traveled to Nuqrah'shareh.
Appearance & Personality
Frehling is a male drowolath of thin build with purple eyes. He wears his hair shoulder-length and undyed, styled into a rough ponytail. He dresses plainly, wearing a simple brown tunic over a tan shirt and trousers. Perhaps his most notable feature is his ornate set of multi-lensed spectacles.
He is a very cheerful and optimistic individual, with an easygoing and playful nature. This is perhaps owed in part to his status as a neutral author, allowing him to witness and record events of political importance without himself becoming drawn into them. Though much of his work is scholarly in nature, he is best known for his romantic novella, and he displays a keen interest in any source of salacious gossip that might provide material for his writings.
Biography - Arc II
Frehling first appeared in the company of Chrys'tel, as Zala'ess led a large contingent of Sharen forces to forge an alliance with the Illhar'dro of Nuqrah'shareh. Assessing the situation, Chrys'tel spoke of the traditional strengths of Nuqrah'shareh; namely it's relative unity and highly defensible location in the underworld making it a near-insurmountable bastion against invaders. Grimly, Chrys'tel noted that these strengths now worked against her people as the Sharen rode to aid Queen Nega'fanea against a rebellion led by Balsii. Riding at her side, Frehling cheerfully remarked on the historic nature of the war, and of the opportunity for legendary deeds in the coming battles.<ref>Chapter 34, page 44</ref> His easygoing exuberance was not matched by the young overseer, and she reaffirmed the great risks her clan undertook in Zala'ess' efforts to secure an alliance. Despite her misgivings, he remained optimistic, happily recording her opinions and observations into his journal.
At some point during their travels, the topic of conversation moved to Nau'kheol and his potential love life. Though Frehling was eager for any details, Chrys'tel defended her brother from further harassment, insisting the two received enough pressure from their mother for grandchildren enough as it was. Unperturbed, Frehling simply shifted his inquiries onto her own love life, much to Chrys'tel's irritation.
