PostSubject: Illyria   Wed Aug 01, 2007 5:54 am

Illyria is one of the legendary Old Ones, an original pure demon from the Primordium Age who ruled territory that included modern-day Harad. She was one of the most feared of all the Old Ones and ruled from her citadel, Vahla ha'nesh, which corresponds to modern-day Irem. However, Illyria was defeated and murdered by her many rivals.As depicted in an illustration of a statue of her in Vahla ha'nesh, Illyria was a sight to behold in her original form. If one assumes that the statue is life-size, she would be at least five times taller than an average human. Illyria had five tentacles on either side of her torso that she uses like arms, which are flexible and ambulatory to the point that she can clutch and operate weapons with them. She has two claw-like feet that allow her to perch, much like an eagle. The rest of Illyria's form is obscured by armor, but its humanoid shape suggests that her head and torso are in much the same configuration as a human's. Illyria was loved and feared as few of the Old Ones were, so much so that she still had followers and acolytes in the modern day - arguably millions of years after her reign.Before falling, Illyria planned her resurrection. She hid her temple in a different time plane, rendering it completely intangible, until she could return to open the gateway and enter it. Illyria's army was placed there as well, waiting to be raised once again by its leader. However, sometime in the passing centuries, the army was destroyed, leaving only dust in its place.

Powers And Abilities

The full scope of Illyria's power is unknown. When Illyria takes over her new "shell," Illyria possesses tremendous physical strength. Illyria is aided in combat by her ability to selectively alter time, which allows her to easily dodge both attacks and magicks; she can accomplish a goal and leave an area before her opponent even realizes she has moved. She can also open interdimensional portals.Illyria can alter her physical appearance on a basic level.Illyria has empathic abilities that allow her to perceive the emotional states of others.Illyria communicates with flora, often spending hours at a time communing with a plant. She is also capable of distinguishing humans (or "primitives"), from demons, vampires, and other half-breeds. Illyria also retains the insights from her experiences as an Old One, which enable her to effectively analyze the power dynamics, personal motivations, and emotions that influence those around her.
