Selene “The Night’s Mistress”
Selene “The Night’s Mistress” was the former high priestess of Aur in the Realm of Eros. After seeing how the nobility ruined life in the realm and oppressed the poor, she decided to take action. Unfortunately for Selene, she was betrayed by one of her Acolytes.
After being imprisoned in the year 196, she fled from Eros with the help of her faithful henchman Hector “The Broken”. After years of wandering, she ended up in the City of Jagrad.
Selene “The Night’s Mistress” was originally from the small village of Pholia in the Realm of Eros. There she was born in a warm family in the year 152. When She was a teenager she was sent to the capitol to become an Acolyte of Aur at the Temple of Aur in the City of Eros. Eventually Selene became the High Priestess of Aur in the Realm of Eros for many years to come.
After years of seeing poverty from up close in the streets in the City of Eros she decided it was time for change. She saw how mankind slipped into destruction and how it got further and further away from the divine way of life. After the rape of one of her acolytes in the year 196 and the ensuing cover-up by the highborn of Eros, she decided it was time to act.
Selene decided to do the ultimate in her goal of destroying Eros, she decided to awaken the old evil hidden deep beneath the city. By performing a malign ritual, lost in the ravages of time. But she was betrayed by one of her acolytes, Thea. The ritual was terribly disrupted by the city guard of Eros and therefore turned into a fiasco. While the dark forces were already flowing through her veins, they suddenly became uncontrollable. Only through sheer willpower did Selene manage to drain the powers. And while Selene had the strength to let these forces flow away, her acolytes were unable to do so.
Selene was stripped from her titles and she was sentenced to death by a grand jury. But somehow she managed to escape with the help of Hector “The Broken”, the temple’s lowly gifted cleaner who was deeply in love with her. But after the loss of her powerful staf during her arrest she was powerless, for years she wandered in the Realm of Eros, awaiting her revenge, and finally it came. She was guided to the City of Jagrad with the help of Helios “The Lost” and his band of exiles.
Soon after arriving in the city she gained power of a local group called the Children of the Moon. The Children of the Moon were originally a group of homeless and poor who lived in the House of the Moon on the famous Munra Street in the Deeps. There they were being used as cheap labor by the crime boss of Jagrad: Babak “The Boss”.
After weeks and months of scheming, backstabbing and other cunning acts she gained power of the Children of the Moon and transformed it in the dreaded Night’s Cult, with her as their absolute saviour.
Selene used to be a beautiful woman, but has been maimed by the failure of several experiments. The magic has faded her skin and it has even taken on a purple glow.
In earlier years she always carried the Staff of Asasra while performing mystical rituals in the Temple of Aur. But after losing her faithful possession the night of her downfall, most of her magical powers were stripped from her.
Selene is always accompanied by her personal bodyguard Mehrana “The Silent”.
