    Appearance

    Play By: Genesis Rodriguez
    Distinguishing Features: Lean with pleasant curves she is middling height for an Eyrien female at 5'6". Her golden eyes are flecked with green and hints of amber; hinting at her less than pure blooded ancestry. Bat like wings that are a shade paler than dusky midnight compliment her golden brown skin and midnight colored hair.

    Personality


    Personality:
    Mayrian is a vivacious soul who is unafraid to speak what is on her mind. Her sense of morality is strong and faith in her religion unshaken despite the misfortunes that have befallen her beloved Askavi. While Mayrian loves her duties regarding tending the living and their needs to commune with the darkness; she cannot help but question the deaths of so many in the Black Forest. Each funeral leaves her feeling hollow and shaken inside. After a sense of guilt, for questioning Mother Night, and hyper attendance to her duties as Court Priestess.

    After losing her lover, Dustinar, she is reserved on re entering the romance scene. She has a young son just getting ready to make his birthright offering and he possesses the whole of her attentions. While she is fond of her fellow court members Mayrian is somewhat aloof; preferring to dedicate her affections to her child rather than a male who may be called away due to his bond with their queen or another.

    Naturally compassionate Mayra spends time offering solace and comfort to those injured or crippled from recent battles or past ones. She also finds herself volunteering at the local creche when court duties allow for it. Happily putting in the PR time among the youngest of their citizens. Inwardly she longs for another child. However, with the Jhinka and famine threatening, she cannot justify bringing another life into the world at this moment; something that leaves her conflicted every time she considers taking another lover.

    Likes:
    • Children: She isn't baby crazy but still longs for another tiny infant to cradle in her arms and smell that sweet unique scent. To watch as those little eyes learn and watch a tiny person grow and witness the world anew. Mayra loves children and never turns away any children from her attention; or lets her patience turn to peevishness with them.
    • Cooking: It reminds her of the quiet moments in childhood spent with her mother. Just doing even basic things in the kitchen brings back those happy emotions and feelings of being loved and cherished as the apple of someone’s eye. Plus the end result of delicious food is always a reward.
    • Dancing: Naturally vivacious Mayra enjoys the innate flirt and seduction found in the intimacy of dance. The playful test to see just how well chemistry plays out before making any final overtures; or simply the ability to tease and let loose make dancing a favorite pastime.
    Dislikes:
    • Funerals: While all things must return to the Darkness, Mayra was never fond of goodbyes. Even as a Priestess who's duties are to perform such rites, it is her least favorite task. Still Mayra performs them as expertly as she can trying to suppress her own sorrows for others.
    • Adulterers: While all hearts are prone to desires, it is what one does with those desires and Mayra despises anything more than a passing glance. Perhaps this is because her father's son was never particularly faithful or because she grew up with a father who could never keep his hands to himself, but Mayra has no patience for straying lovers.
    • Excuses: Excuses are like blooms on a flowering plant, everyone has a million of them and Mayra has little time for any of them. She believes that you must make the most of your day and that excuses due little to ease the faults of one's own actions.
    Fears:
    • Being Last in a Relationship: She witnessed it with her mother and father; then experienced a similar sensation with Dustinar's refusal to commit to a monogamous relationship. She hates that sickening and gut wrenching feeling of not being good enough or worthy. She is afraid to let herself fully fall in love and find herself on the lowest of priorities just due to the pain and the fall in self confidence she knows it would bring.
    • Losing her Son:He is everything to her. She has poured all her love into him and if she lost him it would devastate her. The idea of soon having to send him to the hunting camps makes her sick at night and each Jhinka attack raises that level of anxiety.
    • Losing someone while on bad terms: She lost Dustinar without being able to tell him what he meant to her; during the purge there were so many who died while petty squabbles raged on. The guilt makes her seize each moment to share just how important others are to her and her son.
    Craft Strengths:
    • Communion Craft: Mayra has learned over the centuries how best to guide a person and prepare them for the ceremony of offering themselves to the darkness. Over time she has helped many obtain their jewels with relative success and kept the ceremonies a positive affair rather than associated with something traumatic or troubling.
    • Connecting with the Darkness: With the struggles on them from before even the Jhinka Mayra has focused on the various ways to help guide the darkness to fill reservoirs and experimented on how to help their limited queens have enough strength to help heal their ailing lands. She has learned how to help funnel some of her strength or a willing volunteer's into the Queen's during the spring and autumn ceremonies; stretching the Queen's gift just that much further.

      Craft Weaknesses:
    • Emotional Manipulation: Mayra often wishes she had this skill. How much easier would it be to help keep those around her calm and centered even in the middle of disaster or heated tempers? Instead the best she can do is offer a calm and relatively cool counter of logic; doing her best to lead by example. For some reason she can never seem to get the finesse to lean on others around her.
    • Communication Craft: A quirk of being focused on communicating with those around her; Mayra has found that her telepathic communication is less than secure; personal threads seem to escape her ability to create and even long distance threads that should reach a certain distance based on her opal only make it about half the way. This leaves her at a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to double talking during political affairs as she can receive; but replying never turns out exactly right.


      Life Story

      Family:
      Mother: Anninian Sakany, Tiger Eye to Summer Sky, Priestess (b. 2,907 BP)
      Father: Ashar Sarkany, Tiger Eye to Summer Sky Warlord (b. 3,308 BP)
      Lover: Dustinar Vasile, Prince, Rose to Purple Dusk (b. 2,472 BP)
      Children: Talonnar Sarkany, Prince (b. 185)

      History:

      Her mother taught her everything she knew from the moment she received her Birthright Summer-Sky , to making her offering and receiving the Opal. Anninian was a patient and loving teacher to her daughter, never scolding her daughter but rather showing how to do the task right. Beyond Craft and grooming her to take her place one day, Anninian taught her how to cook, dance and sing and it was often said that when mother and daughter sang, it was a beautiful sight to observe. There was no doubt Mayrian grew to be a strong woman because of her mother's example. When Anninian chose to take a position outside of their village she selected Mayra as her successor. The following centuries were hard for Mayrian because she felt she still had so much more to learn but her mother’s insistence combined with the honor compelled her to attempt to fill the vacated position.

      While her early years never featured her father much in them, as he held a Court position with the District Queen at that time, he was a constant source of discord on their home. The traditional Eyrien attitude towards women ran true in Ashar. He cared for his wife and daughter; but he treated them both with a high handed sort of concern.

      For him court duties came first and his queen was the most important female in his life; leaving little room for his daughter and wife. A reason that Mayra was an only child and eventually that her mother left her husband to pursue her own vocation and calling. Her complicated relationship with her father is probably what led to Mayrian's desire if she ever found a lover, never to let another woman have at him. This may be part of her complicated relationship with her lover, Dustinar Vasile.

      Before meeting Dustinar the only lover Mayrian was interested in was Mother Night. She invested her time and dedication into learning her craft and honing it to best serve the Eyrien people; including the Red Queen. Her dedication served her well and she found herself being promoted to District Priestess and serving in the East Black Forest District.

      It was there she met Dustinar; a first circle guard for the West Black Forest Queen. He had come on official court business to arrange the transport of tithes between the two district courts to deliver to the Province court. For them, there was an instant connection, and a more romantic heart would have said love at first sight.

      Their centuries long romance would run hot and cold through the various events of Askavi and the realm. They were together when the Purge struck. It was Dustinar that saw her safely through that wash of red power; his strength sheltering their minds when her own flagged. Together they rode that power with her dragging them down into the serenity of the abyss; using it to help shelter their minds and inner webs from shattering.

      No matter that perfect moment of communion Dustinar still chose to keep their relationship undefined and it lead to many explosive arguments that had her often debating leaving Black Forest all together. More so when she would run across another lover of his and jealousy reared its head. Mayra finally called the relationship dead and forced a break of over a century.

      During that time she dedicated herself further to the struggling people of the Black Forest. Many were shattered and trying to reclaim any sort of balance they could find with their hobbled psyches. Her efforts were not unnoticed and the Queen of the Black Forest Province drew her into her court. The old and ailing Queen inspired and easy loyalty and her hobbled together court worked as a team often allowing them to mingle with the district court queens.

      It was during this time Mayra met Auralian. The future Province Queen was young but made a good impression for her control and willingness to put aside ego for the good of Askavi. Her first circle being filled with family wasn't odd or out of place and Mayra found herself almost fond of the Queen; though would have liked to see more centuries on her before she was entrusted to anything as large as a District.

      When the Province Queen finally tapped a successor in 182 AP Mayra was unsurprised to see the Purple Dusk Queen take her place. That Mayra was appointed to continue her service along with the majority of the First Circle showed the young queen was at least somewhat forward thinking.

      During this time Dustinar came back into her life. Attached to the leader of a Hunting camp he came to bring their pledge of fealty to the new queen as well as the reports demanded of their state of affairs. Again Mayra found her resolve weakened and heart hoping that he would change his wandering ways.

      A chance affair that continued in the rocky manner of hot and cold passions lead to the birth of their son Talonnar in the Fall of 185 AP. For a time it seemed that Dustinar would settle down and commit himself fully to their young family. Mayra often offered to speak with Auralian about getting him a post in the first or second circles for the Province.

      The relative peace lasted three years before Mayra discovered his business trips often corralated to pleasure trips as well to both Red Moon houses and those of widows from the purge. A fight broke out between the two of them with great deal of damning words said on her part. Words she would later regret as Dustinar died during a raid on one of the Hunting camps he was inspecting.

      The two years since Dustinar's death have been a lesson in self forgiveness and remembering that sometimes words cannot be taken back. They have also been years spent advising the Queen to indeed shut down those camps to try and preserve lives..


      Show Us What You've Got

      Character in Play:

      Talonnar played as she cooked him some supper. It was once more him acting out his dreams of what his father was. Mayra had made the conscious decision to shield Talonnar from the worst side of his father. It was not a boy's burden to suffer or know the sins of his father so let him believe the good things she had told him. The smells of spices and meat filled the air of their humble home as Mayra finished out what was to be there dinner tonight.

      With just a look she sent her son off to wash up before they ate and when they returned did they pray in thanks for the blessing given to them from the Mother. Halfway through dinner Talonnar looked at his mother. "Do you miss him?" Mayra hated that question because it flooded her with regrets about their last conversation and squandered moments over simple pride. "As much as you do, my son" Mayra told him with solid resolve in her voice. It wouldn't do to show him that talking about Dustinar bothered her. He deserved to know and was too little to understand the complexities of love.

      "If you miss him, does that mean it will always just be me and you?" Talonnar pressed. Again another question she hated. It wasn't that simple. "If it is only just you and I forever, would that make you sad Talonnar?" she inquired back. Usually that got him to say no and be quiet. This time however he shrugged and stopped eating. "I don't know. Maybe?" Mayra cocked a brow at her son. "Everytime you met a boy your age who you get on well with doesn't mean they have a father who is looking for a new family" she smirked. Talonnar smiled but shook his head. "It's not that. It's just you don't smile at other people like you smile at me, especially males. I worry you aren't happy."

      That had Mayra stopping her own eating and looking at him. "Talonnar, my love. You are my son and I will never look at anyone or smile at anyone the way I do you, my first born love. You alone make me happy and you are all I need. As for smiling at males, you should learn to mind your own business or I'll be thinking to have the Lady find special chores for you about her house. Now go on and eat."

      That damn child was as nosy as his father ever was and too smart for his own good. The words though resonated with Mayra. Was it so obviously how closed off she was with everything that her own child had noticed? It was hard to trust another after what had transpired between Dustinar and her. She wasn't sure she wanted to open herself up to such wounds again and to the jealous rage which too frequently possessed her natural calm when others came around what she considered hers. Mayra sighed as she cleaned up the plates.

      There was a male who had caught her eye but could she be brave enough to let him in? How would her Queen feel and was now even a time for such with everything going on? Her thoughts so lost she nearly scrubbed the plates into oblivion. Talonnar's little voice asking her to tell him a story before bed was what broke her concentration on the topic. "Sure, go tuck yourself in and I'll be there in a minute.

      Mayra found Talonnar anxiously awaiting her and as she settled in on the edge of the bed she started the story before he even asked. "Your father was a brave and strong man. Serving a lovely Queen who did well by her people....." Her voice faded as the rhythm of her son's breathing became simple and that of slumber. Though she chose to only reflect on the good memories of Dustinar with Talonnar, maybe she was denying herself the same comfort. Dustinar had given her him and maybe she needed to free him of his sins and herself of the same and be more....happy as her son had suggested. Perhaps it was finally time to let the past be the past.
