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!

Biography - Arc II
15 years later, she was seen in Nuqrah'shareh alongside Balsii as their group of soldiers took the Val'Illhar'dro palace by force. She followed Balsii's spellsong order to kill Sandaur'recherrai Val'Illhar'dro without mercy, blasting him through glass and out of the top floor of the palace with spellsong of her own.
She was later responsible for the opening of nether gates on the battlefield, which caused Yami'ni Vel'Sharen trouble while forcing the normally neutral Dusk clan to enter the scene. However, when she went to speak to Kalki Nidraa'chal in secret later on, Shodun expressed great regret for the needless deaths of her fellow Illhar'dro.
Shodun is currently wanted by the Val'Illhar'dro loyalists because Balsii gave up her name as one of those who plotted to cause the chaos in Nuqrah'shareh. Instead of sticking around to get caught, Shodun boards the stolem airship along with Kalki and her bunch--by now, Shodun had merged with her seed, along with Kalki, the three Sullisin'rune sisters and Sal'bara. They arrive some time later in Felde during a peace conference, where Chrys'tel immediately picks her out from those on board. Using spellsong, the former Illhar'dro then calls for the party guests to pledge allegiance to Snadhya'rune and the Nidraa'chal cause.
