Brigur Hadriel Anduin
A political figure outside of Sigil, the Half-Deva is renowned for declaring The War of Strife and Salvation upon Nullus, a Doomlord, and for leading the reprising strikes on the Alliance of Change: destroying their Marilith General Xul at the Ticking Tree Woods outside Automata.Recently the Order of the Planes-Militant Watchman has instigated a wheel-wide rallying of allied armies to liberate Curst, leveraging an influence over the Excelsior military.
Brigur is the grandson of venerable Paladin-Lord Boeric Riegon. Son of his daughter, Ghesele, and a Monadic Deva named Hadriphael.
The Riegon dynasty emigrated to Excelsior during the fall of the Anuirean empire, but the family retains their Regency as blood scions of the shattered god Anduiras. Lord Riegon rules from a picket keep above the Gate-Town to Mount Celestia, faithful to the God of Leadership, Haelyn.
Boeric severed his grandson from the family lineage, naming him Anduin rather than Riegon. The impurity represented by an Aasimon bloodline meant a breach of tradition that could not be overlooked.
Now a Paladin-Lord of his own House, Brigur contends with his grandfather's policies and votes on the Excelsior Council. A debate of doctrines and tenets.
A Legacy of Light
Hadriphael the monadic deva was a soldier of Haelyn’s realm on Mercuria and once a marshal of the Planes-Militant. He was known in his life to lead military response to fiendish incursions on the inner planes. The deva is unaccounted for, and has not reformed on the mount, leading many to surmise of his capture or corruption.
A gallant young man with precisely styled night-colored hair and determined eyes of emerald, flecked impure by streaks of hazel. He speaks kindly but with brevity, a dialect empyrean. The health of his flesh and the caliber of his muscles leaves no question: an upper planar bloodline courses within and bolsters him. With its vitality he reaches a height of 6'3 and hides beneath a cloak strong feathered wings, their plumage the golden-cloud pinions of Mercuria skies. The shine of the Mount rests its glow upon him, catching his hair and eyes with a gleam of the Heavens -- a deva.
On the contrast are mortal qualities to the figure: a tendency to restlessly distract with nearby objects, a voice at once seconded by greatness of the Hebdomad and then again obvious in its youthful human character. He wears scrapes and nicks on his thick forearms, the consequences of aspirations in carpentry and planar expedition.
He is a paladin, this assertion being told by the prominence of a holy symbol: the Sword and Sunburst emblazoned upon the fashions of his chest when he is clothed and strung from a cord on his neck when he is not. His wear is a mix of simple plush fabrics and engraved traditional craftsmanship of the Anuirean Empire of prime-world Cerilia.
Lordship: The Rise of House Anduin
After losing his sons and only heirs to the Alliance of Change's attack on Excelsior's Tallest Tower, Lord Bavitim Sobun of House Sobun of Excelsior passed his inheritance to Brigur by ceremony, from his deathbed.
The bloodline of Sobun is magically linked to The Arming Sword; this heirloom bears the House's legacy and Right to Rule.
