Description:
Emissary of the Lady of Pain

Also known as the Voice of Vision; the Emissary; the Blood Queen; Sophia the Apostate
Background:
Born Sophia Maratsade, a human female in the Trailise River Valley, country Battledrake Hold, continent of Eresthion. Joined the church of Dralmon at age 15 to escape an arranged marriage.

Completed cleric training at age 18. Joined the cult of Livinia within the church of Dralmon as an Intercessor, one who takes on the pain and suffering of others and is strengthened through their own pain. At this time, gave up her family name and became known as Sophia of Dralmon.

At age 23, rescued the lillend Ashalaron, one of Dralmon's twelve Carriers of the Song, who agreed to be her divine sponsor and granted her the first level of celestial taint.

A year later, was sent to Bedel on the continent of Siliban to act as archprelate in the new Church of Dralmon.

During this time, Sophia was instrumental in fighting the double invasion of Bayvek by the aberrant forces of the dead god Mizenfane, called Mizdimarren, and the undead forces of Cheq'ual. The war carried on for nearly ten years, during which time Sophia completed her transition to a half-celestial native outsider.

Martyred by Haj'kitu, the divine of Cheq'ual. Raised as a deathless Risen Martyr and sent back to Bayvek to finish her work in the war. Named as the Hand of Dralmon and head of the Intercessors.

United most leaders of Bayvek and their nations into a great coalition and defeated the forces of Mizenfane and Cheq'ual, ending the Great War of Bayvek. However, at this time it was discovered that the force behind the war was actually Outer Evil, from beyond the edges of the Multiverse, which had somehow gained entry.

With the war complete, the Risen Martyr was destroyed and Sophia was reborn as an Armiter of War, a full outsider now native to Dralmon's plane of Aldinor.

Married the archon of the Drifting Realm, Ter'Marin. Served as Queen of the Drifting Realm until called back by Dralmon to serve as his Hand in the planes.

Adventured in the planes. Earned approval for and constructed the Great Machine of the Wheatfields. First encounter with the Lady of Pain in Vision. Joined the Sensates faction in Vision. Began marshaling forces against Evil.

Founded a School for Healing and Surgery.

Entered a period of semi-retirement in order to bear Corellan, son of Dralmon and future Lord of the Starry Night.

Once Corellan was fostered back on Bayvek, re-entered the war against Evil. Gathered many allies and resources, including the Lady of Pain.

Brought the war to its conclusion and was victorious in trapping Evil, but was betrayed by the Lady of Pain and forced to join with her and bear the child of Pain and Evil.

For her role in the Lady's plan, was stripped of her powers and set an atonement by Dralmon. While on her atonement quest, her daughter Tiana was taken by Haj'kitu. After begging Dralmon for her powers back in order to rescue Tiana and being denied, Sophia renounced Dralmon, cut off her wings, and entered the service of the Lady of Pain.

Remade by the Lady as an Angel of Blades. With the Lady's power, was able to destroy Haj'kitu and his entire plane, thus freeing the millions of beings enslaved there. Tiana was killed, but was at least freed from the tortures of Haj'kitu's imprisonment of her.

Currently resides in Vision, in the Lady's Keep. She is the Lady's Emissary and representative of Her Serenity in all things. Responsible for overseeing the various Factions and generally keeping the peace. However, she is often off-plane, carrying out the Lady's wishes and her own work.
