Appearance


*

in the end we all come to be cured of our sentiments.

*



Iliksis is a slight figure, thin with corded muscle and gritty sinew. he almost appears androgynous at a distance, yet up close he is virile as a coiled snake. his unimposing height and lack of bulk might trick anyone into believing him harmless -- a lie he will use to hurt you. beyond the disarming physique, his pelt is an an overcast grey -- with cheeks sharpened by dull gunmetal. around his thin face the grey keenly tapers to silvered white -- while two tempered yellow eyes haunt his mournful countenance.

occasionally there is an aspect of depravity that shrouds his form like malaise -- however, it is fleeting and peripheral in its temerity, and often impalpable. strangers may find his company oddly discomfiting, yet rarely can articulate just what about him is so unsettling. click

Biography
to understand Iliksis, one must truly, innately understand violence -- and the blistering, shattering effect it has on one's inestimable soul. warning: graphic/explicit content

Ilikisis was born from the forceful coupling of Himminrond's highest ranking patriarch (a darksinger by the name of Gruinfel) and a thaal by the name of Moiraga. In Himminrond, there are two sects -- the Roskveim, or winterwolves -- and the Katar'usk, the defiled valley-kin. These sects perform two duties: kill, and plunder. Their divergence is a matter of distance over differences; at each solstice they reconvene at the base of the Himminrond. Both worship the all-god, or the darksinger -- a mortal individual given godly form by vanquishing both the Living and the Dark. The darksinger, sometimes also referred to as the soul-drinker, is believed to be the Swallower of Worlds. He is a corporeal being that is the shadow-consumer, death-killer, bloodslaker and defiler of life. There is only one darksinger alive at a time -- and in the event a darksinger dies or is killed, it is not the wolf that deals the deathblow that becomes the new darksinger, but the wolf still standing after the darksinger is felled..

The darksinger's successor is decided by the bloodbath that ensues -- only the wolf that consumes the heart (or sudak) of the felled darksinger is the new Vanquisher Of Souls and leader of men... Under one condition: he must kill all other wolves present vying for the sudak. In the event a darksinger is felled every wolf in the vicinity will fight tooth and claw for a chance to consume the darksinger's flesh and heart; and there can be only one survivor from such a bloodied liturgy. Every contestant must be vanquished before a new darksinger is appointed. Every last soul committed to Darkness. This ritual, a massacre in other words, is called the Blood Ascendant. Once a new darksinger becomes the Blood Ascendant, every female in the known world is brought before him for coupling: this mass act of procreation generates and ensures a healthy population, and keeps the ranks bolstered -- especially in the wake of those killed by the Blood Ascendant ritual. This method of methodical killings has consistently bred more and more physically capable and violent wolves.

It is believed that each soul a wolf kills is held permanently in the killer's sudak; this process is called the Soulbind. The Soulbind is an irreversible process; each soul of the deceased is augmented into the wolf's sudak. It is customary then for the new darksinger to kill any pups still suckling from the felled-darksinger's brood to collect their souls. This is done because the wolves believe the old darksinger unworthy, and any of his spawn still reliant on his mother's teats is to be brutally and justly consumed so that the new darksinger may harvest their spirits and aggrandize the new darksinger's hegemony. It is not uncommon for the newly victorious Blood Ascendant to defile the corpses of those he has slain -- both physically and sexually. This defilement is seen as the Rite Of Corruption, and is considered to augment the darksinger's power -- and there is no more lustful or proliferate a wolf than a wolf that has just vanquished his enemies.

Enter Iliksis, conceived when Gruinfel fought every wolf in Skorkath's entire battalion -- a battalion which had just felled the long-ruling darksinger Khepsis. Iliksis was named in Khepsis' honor -- for Khepsis had been killed in an unprecedented staged coup. Iliksis was raised in this environment, indoctrinated early to the sport of blood and death. In Roskveim, the women were used as chattel to keep the men full of vigor; Iliksis lusted at an early age for the thaal kept by his father. Thaal were females kept alive and favored by the darksinger; typically they were female wolves that showed unusual physical prowess or exotic beauty. They were covered (mated) only by the presiding darksinger, and often violently -- it was believed an aggressive coupling would guarantee more virile and superior offspring.

Iliksis did not pine for just any thaal -- he pined for Moiraga, the thaal that whelped him. As depraved as the Roskveim wolves were, coupling with a relative was an unspeakable crime -- for the offspring of such pairings were often unfit and weak. Mating closely with relatives was forbidden and treasonous: wolves that defiled this cardinal law were killed by the darksinger. Heedless to the consequences, Iliksis was lustful, and he pursued Moiraga relentlessly and frequently.

Like any psychopathic but intelligent individual, Iliksis kept his intimacy with his mother discreet -- until the curve of her belly betrayed their union. Gruinfel had not covered Moiraga since Iliksis' conception (having many other younger, more gamine brides to select from), and he turned on Moiraga violently until she bled both her life and the truth of her union with their son.

Gruinfel was not Souldrinker or Feller Of Darksingers for nothing -- with boiling wrath to make mountains quiver, the darksinger came down on Iliksis with every tooth intending to soul-break and defile his son. Iliksis, more coward than warrior, did not stand his ground for very long before he fled and ran. He did not escape easily from his father -- Gruinfel was tireless, and his strength interminable: after days of running raw, Iliksis outsmarted his father by doubling back on his tracks and swimming up-river back into Roskveim, where he was least expected to reappear. Iliksis had every intention of resting while his father ran ragged pursuing him; he planned to store his stamina and strike and kill his father as he returned exhausted from his search. Iliksis cleverly planned to kill and consume Gruinfel's sudak when no other wolves were present -- for he was not physically strong enough to fight off more than one adversary. Unfortunately, such a masterfully crafted scheme never came to fruition, for Gruinfel was killed at the mouth of the Himminrond by a bear, and Iliksis missed his chance to isolate his father and become the new darksinger. With Moiraga dead from beatings and his father killed, Iliksis fled the Himminrond.
