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!

Nihi'liir is a young daughter of Sarv'swati Vel'Sharen. She is around the age of Chrys'tel Vel'Sharen and went to school with her at Orthorbbae.
As an adult, Nihi'liir was in charge of the Vel'Sharen slaver district to train slaves to fight for the Sharen faction in the war.
Appearance and Personality
Nihi'liir is a proud member of Sarv'swati's lineage and does not hesitate to assert her presumed authority over the children of Zala'ess. She is impatient and proud of the power her family holds.
Nihi'liir's right arm is a golem prosthetic. Her long white hair fades to deep blue at the ends, and her eyes are tainted red. She usually wears practical clothing in shades of blue and black. When she was in school, she wore a crown with a single blue stone, but as an adult she wore a three-pointed crown with light blue gems.
Biography - Arc I
Nihi'liir went to school with her cousin Chrys'tel and her friends. The group took summoning classes together, and she was present when Faen Val'Sullisin'rune was preparing to participate in a tainting ceremony. When Faen began to have second thoughts and started having an empathetic breakdown, Nihi'liir, who never had any patience for Faen's weakness, slapped her across the face to bring her to her senses. The teacher, Sate'ja Vel'Sharen, attempted to intervene, but the charged situation put Faen into empathetic shock. Her eyes went white as she lost control, destroying Nihi'liir's right arm and wiping Sate'ja's mind blank. She was outfitted with a golem prosthetic to replace her irreparably damaged limb.
Some time later, Chrys'tel was captured by Ariel Val'Sarghress, who was in search of Faen's whereabouts since the incident. Zala'ess had bargained for her release, but Quain'tana Val'Sarghress lied and informed her that Chrys'tel had defected to the Val'Sarghress clan. When Chrys'tel escaped and returned home, Nihi'liir took delight in greeting her at the door and throwing her in the prison to rot.
Chrys'tel was later released and began to investigate the lies of her clan. She ran into Nihi'liir while she was exploring the Orthorbbae. Nihi'liir asked if she would be attending the Moons End Festival parties later and mocked the girl when she said she was too busy for that. She flew away on her floater, doing tricks and maneuvering upside down.
Biography - Arc II
When war broke out between the Val'Sarghress and the Vel'Sharen, the Vel'Sharen faction began to train slaves to fight in their army. Nihi'liir was put in charge of the district dedicated to housing, disciplining, and processing of these slaves.
While a contingent of capture Val'Sarghress troops were being delivered to her district for processing, Chrys'tel's protector twin, Shinae, also arrived to speak with Nihi'liir. Among the Sarghress slaves was Faen, and when another soldier defended her honor, Nihi'liir stabbed him in the leg remorselessly.
She sent the slaves off to their cells and spoke with Shinae about the territory they were losing. Shinae spoke on behalf of Zala'ess, who wanted to encourage Sarv'swati's troops to fall back and save what resources they could. Nihi'liir refused, insisting that Sarv'swati's forces depended on her and the district she held. She mocked Shinae's common birth, which provoked her fiery temper. Shinae blasted Nihi'liir with her pressure sorcery, but Nihi'liir held her ground and put a sword to Shinae's throat. She told Shinae that she was going to have to stay and fight, whether it was against the Val'Sarghress or Nihi'liir herself.
Soon after, the new Sarghress slaves escaped from their cells and started wreaking havoc in the courtyard. Nihi'liir gave the call to arms and prepared to fight. Immediately following, she was decapitated from behind by Ariel Val'Sarghress, who had disguised herself as Balushizar, a Black sun trapper.
