Character History:

As Delan's life was shared with Cordir in person, during RP, she did not require a written character history.

Discussing Delan


Isolas sighs quietly.

Cordir wonders at the sigh.

Cordir asks softly, 'What are you thinking?'

Isolas says, 'I was thinking of my children.'.

Cordir says, 'I only ever met one.'.

Isolas looks away, thinking.

Cordir says, '... so tell me about them.'.
Cordir says, 'You never said who Delan's mom was, I don't think.'.

Isolas says, 'Erian.'.

Cordir says, 'I just accepted him as yours, and didn't care, else.'.

Isolas says, 'Erian is mother to both'.

Cordir says, 'a boy and...?'.

Isolas says, 'Alyiah, the daughter. The oldest.'.

Cordir smiles at the thought of a daughter of yours.
Cordir says, 'tell me about her.'.

Isolas says, 'She was like if her mother were that age.'.
Isolas says, 'I love her, but jesus..'.
Isolas sighs loudly.
Isolas says, 'Grey hairs.'.

Cordir chuckles softly, lifting a handful of her own locks.
Cordir says, 'many of these have Mireya's name on them.'.

Isolas chuckles, evidently amused.

Cordir brushes the ends against your nose, tickling you, before letting her hand fall back to her lap.

Isolas grins slightly.

Isolas says, 'Erian was pregnant with her before we split.'.

Cordir winces.

Isolas says, 'And then, after having not seen her for some time.'.
Isolas says, 'She reappeared one evening.'.
Isolas says, 'To tell me.'.
Isolas says, 'That I was a father.'.
Isolas says, 'The emotion is overwhelming. Even between two people who are no longer in love.'.

Cordir nods.
Cordir says, 'I know.'.

Isolas says, 'So shortly after, Delan came along too.'.
Isolas says, 'Although I found out about him without her introduction.'.
Isolas says, 'Which was ... infuriating.'.

Cordir arches an eyebrow inquisitively.
Cordir says, 'she tried to hide him from you?'.

Isolas says, 'She didn't tell me about him.'.

Cordir bites her lip.

Isolas says, 'But the children are gone, as is Erian'.

Cordir nods.

Isolas says, 'Which I guess is for the best'.

Cordir tilts her head to one side.
Cordir says, 'Delan was a fine boy.'.
Cordir says, 'I liked him.'.

Isolas says, 'Being content with my life will be the end of me'.
Isolas says, 'So with them gone, onward I go'.

Cordir says, 'I found him brave. He reminded me of Kelton.'.

Her voice is odd as she speaks that name.

Isolas looks up, a mix of surprise and confusion.
Isolas says, 'Who?'.

Cordir says, 'Cailte. Kelton. Keller changed it, when he .. took him in.'.
Cordir says, 'Cailte... '.
Cordir looks away. 'May.. or may not... have been ... my son.'
Cordir smiles crookedly. 'I know. You're sitting there wondering how the hell I don't know whether or not I had a child.'
Cordir says, 'But... it was when Molo took me. Keller and I had been ... somewhat... intimate... before the wedding... though not entirely voluntarily on my part...'.
Cordir says, 'and then things got... very cloudy, in my memories. There was the time of madness and memory loss, when Molo told me that Keller was a lie...'.
Cordir says, 'and that I had only ever been married to one of his Conclave....'.
Cordir says, 'I was gravely ill for a long time, after Molo took me.'.
Cordir says, 'And there were rumors, years later, of a child he had taken.'.
Cordir says, 'With blue-grey eyes and blonde hair, who had suffered torments in his Crypt, but escaped...'.
Cordir says, 'Whom Keller and Kylera called their own, though Kylera admitted later he was not her child.'.
Cordir bites her lip.
Cordir says, 'So... he may have been mine, born of his father's mad attempt to force me before our wedding, born to a madwoman, and taken by the Lich.'.
Cordir says, 'I don't know.'.
Cordir says, 'Madman himself took interest in the boy.'.
Cordir says, 'and it's Madman and Molo's and Sirak's Threads that tangle Kelton's, beyond my reading.'.
Cordir says, 'the names are so similar... Cailte... it's pronounced Kail-tay... and Kelton...'.
Cordir says, 'I've always wondered.'.

Isolas nods slowly, taking it in.

Cordir says, 'so...'.
Cordir says, 'I may have a boy and a girl, too... also both lost to me.'.
Cordir smiles wryly.

Isolas says, 'I always felt like a family of my own was the endgame of life.'.

Cordir nods.

Isolas says, 'That was where I had to get if I wanted to consider life a success'.

Cordir says, 'Having lost my own blood children, I made the Chosen my family.'.
Cordir says, 'To Mireya's detriment, I think, when she returned. She never felt she had my full heart.'.

Cordir says, 'do you ever think about having more children?'.

Isolas says, 'Yes.'.
Isolas says, 'But I think that is beyond me now.'.

Cordir says, 'You're elven... you probably could, even at your.... (she grins).. advanced age.'.

Isolas says, 'I ... Isolas ... is too far lost.'.

Cordir nods quietly, acknowledging the pain of that loss of possibility.

Isolas says, 'Instead of making the Magi my family when I lost mine, I just tried to lose Isolas also'.

Cordir nods at the truth of your words.
Cordir says, 'and some damn stubborn woman wouldn't let hold of him?'.

Isolas nods.

Cordir says, 'making it harder on you.'.
Cordir says lightly, 'You should have dealt with such a troublemaker, in the harshest means possible.'

Isolas says, 'Under my own torment is when I've been the most successful at everything else.'.

Cordir nods slightly.

Isolas says, 'Much like the sharks of the Maelmordian - if I were to stop moving.. stop seeking ... I imagine I would die.'.

Isolas considers for a moment.
Isolas juggles a figaro chain, ornamented with sparkling emeralds.

Cordir says, 'hmmm?'.

Isolas says, 'Erian's.'.
Isolas says, 'You made this for her.'.

Cordir says, '... ah.'.

Isolas puts a figaro chain, ornamented with sparkling emeralds in a personal Book of Sorcery.

Cordir says, 'I don't recall.'.
Cordir says, 'did I?'.

Isolas nods.
Isolas says, 'It was taken from the corpse of another'.

Cordir says, 'recently?'.
Cordir arches an eyebrow inquisitively.

Isolas says, 'She was still in the Chosen'.
Isolas says, 'Oh. '.
Isolas says, 'No.'.
Isolas says, 'It was taken from the corpse of another, and you insisted it be destroyed or renamed.'.

Cordir says, 'Ah, yes.'.

Isolas says, 'Because it was a restring for another'.

Cordir says, 'That.'.
Cordir nods.

Cordir says, 'actually... I don't think I made that.'.
Cordir says, 'Kerriariadne did, according to what I can see.'.

Isolas considers for a moment.
Isolas says, 'Are you sure?'.

Isolas says, 'Perhaps she left the Chosen before the issue of it being redone was settled.'.

Cordir says, 'I may have helped write it?'.
Cordir says, 'but it was restrung by kerri.'.

Isolas nods.
Isolas says, 'Well, I do recall it being an item of contention'.

Cordir nods.
Cordir says, 'It was.'.

Cordir says, 'so what else are you rummaging through?'.

Isolas says, 'Nothing.'.

Cordir chuckles at a bizarre thought.

Isolas raises an eyebrow.

Cordir says, '... My daughter worshipped you... your son gave oath to me...'.

Isolas nods.

Cordir says, 'can you imagine if either of our children ever .. met...'.
Cordir says, 'Wouldn't THAT be an odd twist of fate.'.

Isolas says, 'Maybe they did.'.

Cordir says, 'Then I hope that Delan spanked Mireya within an inch of her life.'.

Isolas chuckles, evidently amused.

Cordir says, 'she was a saucy little brat.'.
Cordir chuckles slightly. '.... much like her mother.'
Cordir smiles at the thought.
