History (Submitted by Gremlin)
Aurinath of Melothm: 1683 BCE - 666 BCE
Aurinath is the eldest child of Aurakor and Kailot of Manaba, a realm in the service of Princess Aradia. Despite being the eldest child and rightful heir, Prince Aurakor made no secret that he was inclined to pass Aurinath and her many sisters over for the title of heir, in favor of Aurinath's youngest sibling, and only brother, Azacus.
Regardless of her father's predisposition, Aurinath was raised as a true Manaban princess, with all the benefits and spoiling that implies for the first thousand years of her life.
Aurinath of Melothm: 666 BCE - 657 BCE
Her father seemed poised to marry Aurinath and her sisters off in a political maneuver to remove them from his court to mitigate the scandal of naming a younger child as heir. However, Aurinath did not go along with her father's machinations. At a court banquet, in front of dozens of witnesses, Aurinath swore an oath of apprenticeship to her father's court assassins, thereby forbidding her from swearing an oath of marriage until she attained the title of master (and thus being released from her oath of apprenticeship).
It took Aurinath the better part of a decade of harassment for her to convince Sanguir and Sarme, the court assassins, to agree to train her. When they did agree to train her, Aurinath ended up impressing them with how devoted she was to her lessons.
Aurinath of Melothm: 657 BCE - 15 CE
After over six hundred years in service to Sanguir and Sarme, Aura had become a proper assassin and was preparing to undergo the trials to become a true Master Assassin. However, before Aurinath could present herself to Grandmaster Zethos, she had to find him. Aurinath had heard that Zethos was serving as the Court Assassin of the Silver Prince of Melothm, and so Aurinath traveled to the icy realm of Hell.
Aurinath of Melothm: 15 - 1897
Aurinath's father had spoken highly of Prince Senael so Aurinath was expecting not to enjoy her time in Melothm. However, Aurinath met Vamina soon after her arrival in the icy realms and became friends (and more than that) in no time at all. Aurinath's pursuit of a Master Assassin became second priority and before she knew it, she'd spent nearly two thousand years offering her services to Senael.
When Zethos retired from the position of Court Assassin, Aurinath finally achieved her rank and became free to marry once more. However, when her father sent word he had arranged her marriage, Senael overruled the order and named Aurinath a rightful Lady of Melothm, even giving her lands within the expansive realm.
Aurinath of Melothm: 1897 - Present
Nowadays, Aurinath spends her time between missions training her many apprentices, tending to the two young devils she and Vamina had taken in as their own, drinking infernal spirits, and flirting with the many lost souls who find their way to Melothm...
- (Submitted by Four-Eyes) The lore paints Aurinath as a merciless, monstrous succubus. In reality, at least according to Network sources which had met her in person, she is supposedly very kind and vivacious to meet people (ie: those she has not been sent to kill). Rumor is she even is something of a matchmaker.
- (Submitted by Gremlin) Aurinath wants Ellie MacKay to eventually marry her nephew Etassion because she thinks they'd be a "cute couple". I have not had the pleasure to meet Etassion. Not sure I want to, to be honest. Vamina, Aurinath's lover and frequent conspirator, disapproves of Aurinath's matchmaking. Not only does Vamina want Ellie to be happy, she thinks Aurinath's nephew Etassion is an arrogant little snot.
- (Submitted by Four-Eyes) In addition to her duties as a Courtier and Court Assassin, Aurinath and Vamina are often given additional duties by Senael. Indicative of the level of trust and faith Senael has in their abilities, these include the honor of escorting Senael's descendants when they visit or first arrive in Melothm (before an official entourage and security detail can be arranged).
