Current Description:

(Date: Approximately 1999)

Soft yellow-brown eyes look at you expectantly.. by their glow you
feel warmth and compassion, in their depths you see the shadow of experience.
Youthful willowly features remind you of the forest creatures 
she grew-up among. Oh, you noticed the big pearl she has cradled in her hands?
With a wistful smile she will tell you that all treasure cannot be held. The pearl, 
she holds up and explains, symbolizes to her, cherished moments with those 
who found a place forever in her heart.
With a faraway look she recites..
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,,,And the wisdom 
to know the difference.
A rank of Private Tiger has been carefully placed on her armor.
Lynain is in perfect health.

Character History:

(Written for the Wind following website)

There was very few who now exists in the realm that would have been present at the time of Lynain's birth. It was a quiet Jan morning in the year of 1997, some would remember this as 2x time, or pre- 3x Soon after creation she was approached by a older gentleman namedGaul, who was kindly to all newbies, he offered her the use of a leveling kit which he had made especially for the uprising generation, to have a chance to become strong.

Leveling to the age that she no longer was sheltered by the mud school, she took her diploma and wandered in the forest. There she met some of her fellow graduates. One told her that if she ever needed any help she should talk to a mage named Darrin, whom she was told was very friendly and helpful. Curiously she approached Darrin one day when she noticed him wandering the realm. Telling him about his endorsement he was amused, but then set out to show that what was said about him was very true. Darrin showed little Lynain places to experience and then would come back to see how her progress was. He even sent his friend to check on her, when he couldn’t assist. Under his watchful eye she began to grow, and in his pleasure he expressed his feelings of wishing to adopt her as his own daughter. Lynain, not knowing her birth parents was thrilled to have found a parent. She proudly wore the name Spellfletcher, learning the ways of an unaligned Mage.

Darrin was engaged to a petite, bubbly mage named Pippin. After having invited Lynain to become his daughter, he broke the news to Pippin, who was delighted to know that she had become guardian over Lynain. A natural born mother, Pippin watched over Lynain, making her her first dress, inviting her to the Temple courts of Foolkiller to play with Foolkiller’s daughter and meet and interact with other fellow followers of Pippin. Lynain especially loved to bounce on Foolkiller's couch when she thought he was not looking... Pippin had a friend in the following, who would take her out to experience. Lynain started tagging along and was amazed at the speed and agility that this young cleric could fly thru the zones and mobs. After a period of time Pippin asked Azar if he would mind taking Lyn out without her, she said his speed made her dizzy and with a series of PKs she was fearful to leave the guild.

This began a two-some that were rarely seen without each other. Azar and Lynain would spend hours experiencing, getting bigger and stronger. Lynain teased Azar that her mother had paid him to babysit her and that Pippin must owe him tons. The innocence of their devotion to each other was both a joy and an amusement to Darrin and Pippin. Over a period of time Lynain sought Foolkiller and expressed her desire to join his following and timed it as a surprise to Azar and her Mother. Then an even bigger surprise happened; Darrin also joined Foolkiller's following.

With bigger levels came bigger challenges. At level 20 Lynain became a target for many PKers, mostly from the Conclave following. First she came adept at re-quipping, then finally at fleeing and quaffing. Her background had not prepared her for the aggressions of others but she was a quick learner. There was time when Azar and her would find a hideaway from the PKers, and wait out their constant hunting. Her favorite spot was on the balcony of Redfern's Mansion but there was also the little out of the way spot in the wicked gardens.

In July of 1997, grouped with Poacher, and while Foolkiller looked on, Lynain hit level 30. The next month, August, Azar and Lynain were married and she bore the title of Lynain, Azar's wife. It was a beautiful ceremony performed by Foolkiller, with all of their friends and relatives that could make it. There was a party that lasted for hours afterwards with dancing and then a big pool party, which Nayr had created for the occasion.

September came and so did the winds of change... there was rumors that the end of the world was coming. Molo threatened to destroy the existence of all before the realm was transformed to a different dimension.

For the first time in Lynain's life, she saw Conclavers below level 15 called “Wards of the Conclave.” Their existence was all too clear. They were seeking the lower levels lives while their bigger counterparts set out to destroy the others. In October of 1997 several weeks before the whispered dooms-day was to come.. 2x was destroyed and 3x rose to takes its place. A means was given for all who wished to change and become part of this new realm. Some never made that transition; some came but soon left because it was not the home they had known. One of those was Lynain's husband Azar. He transformed but then died a few days after the existence of 3x, leaving Lynain grieving and heart-broken.

The Realm changed and so did Lynain's life. She struggled with her existence but survived because of her natural curiosity, the support of close friends Feril and Grismal, and thirdly Foolkiller wished her to take on more duties and responsibilities in his following. His right hand-man, Tokugawa, was seeking Immortal status, and Foolkiller wished Lynain to step into that spot. Not to replace Tokugawa but to be as Lynain was: helpful, kind, dependable, and a support to all in the following in word and deed.

In December one of her dearest supporters Feril was taken from the realm without much warning. It was a hard blow to Lynain and before he had to go they rushed into an elopement with Foolkiller’s blessings. Few were around to bear note of this event. Lynain once again was fortified and did not leave the realm, by her duties to Foolkiller and her now closest friend Grismal. This was before Christmas. At Christmas Madman gave out presents to the survivors of 2x, those who happened to be on at the time of his gift-giving. He gave out god-enchanted simple rings as a token as his appreciation of the brave exploring that many of these characters had done in the transition of 2x to 3x.

Lynain and Grismal became even closer in the next few months, each was saddened as friends would say their good-byes and stated they would not be returning to the realm. There were very few around during those months.

Grismal taught Lynain the ways of the treasure-hunt and they spent hours gathering gold and valuables, strengthening themselves and some of their friends. A large group of characters were banned from the mud for noted cheating and as some of the characters left they gave some of their valuables to Grismal and Lynain making them richer than they ever had been.

In Feb of 1998, the impossible happened. Feril rose, as if from the dead. This was both wonderful and traumatic for Lynain. Her loyalties were divided and she had to make choices she didn’t know she would ever had to make. She stood by Grismal's side and Feril destroyed himself.

As spring came to the Realm of 1998 the bugs were mostly weeded out of the playing. Then others started coming back to begin their leveling, very few conclave were to be seen until this time. Lynain stayed on her toes to avoid their hunting but she was not immune to bad recalls or portals. On one occasion she bad-recalled into the Evil Shrine. She called upon an evil acquaintance to help and then for the next few hours was told misleading information and lies to the status of her corpse. Her hope that perhaps she would recover her things started to dim and then confirm as she started locating some of her items on little evil players. Of this, she did recover her Orb from an evil friend, and a bit later, her ring that madman gave her, was recovered by a following member who tricked the one with it. Her equipment never quite reached that status again.

Summer was full of transitions that left Lynain weak and finally she gave up. In September of 1998, she gave her equipment to dear friends and left the realm. Occasionally she would return to visit but with little desire to return to full purpose. Foolkiller's following was going smoothly with the help of Brenick and others and Lynain stepped down from her position because her heart was not in it.

Almost a year later, in the Summer of 1999, Lynain stepped out of her retirement at the bidding of her friend Granger. Foolkiller was retiring and with a bittersweetness she left Trinity and joined Lorna and her tigers. This change in following was not meant to be.. Lorna was soon promoted to godhood which left Lynain without a following for a time. Granger and Lyn experienced a summer romance that burned to flames by the start of Fall. Oddly enough this gave Lynain renewed strength and desire to conquer the Realm. With the help of good friends such as Gunner and Plane she became fortified and set out to become bigger again. Gunner stayed by her side and helped her get many levels. He treated her with respect and affection that kindled her heart. Lynain stayed strong for several months but then her desires softened and became like a smoldering ember. She was content and happy with her life and decided that perhaps now was a good time to retire for good.

Ah but the saga goes on... she still exists.... with her experience of the ever-changing winds of fortune, love.. and even life itself.. she comes back with a deep serenity and reverence to life. There is a calmness, a serenity after the storm, and the winds blow soft and sweet.
