Lords of Gossamer and Shadow NPCs: Ylvana Sendar of the Shadow Realms

I have fled the Grand Stair to my domain so that I may finally live.  I have spent too much time at the beck and call of others and I will now chase the things that I need to make me happy.  Nothing and no-one will stop me this time.

My realm manipulates the pure umbra energies so that it will enhance the changes in my life.  I will over time tear away the façade of the Eidolon that my love Marcello hides behind so he will at long last see that his rightful place is here with me.  He uses his structures to block me out and put me away but he shall be mine, in time.

In the meantime I investigate the Shadow, the spaces between and how it interacts with the ways of the Umbra.  It’s manipulation and influence on the Grand Stair is deeply under rated.  Those that walk the stair frequently seem to forget this second, precious, essential format of the makeup of our own existence.

Do not think of the Shadow as a desolate wasteland though.  It is full of mysteries that must be examined and investigated.  I am doing exactly this as I build my skills to finally tear the Eidolon from his eyes and reveal his true lust for me.  We will merge as one and remain together for ever more.

Mistress of the Umbra (50 Points)

Domain
Shadow Realms (6 Points)
This is a very chaotic realm where nothing seems particularly solid or substantial.  That said materials can be temporarily fashioned easily enough as long as you have some control over the Umbra or sorcery.  There are also pockets of this realm that seem almost to be made from the Shadow between Gossamer realities rather than Gossamer itself which is where Ylvana spends much of her time in research

Ally
Cassandreth (4 Points) Dwimmerlaik Witch Ally
Cassandreth became an ally with Ylvana after the two met in Ylvana’s realm.  The fact that Ylvana was not automatically hostile, and much more curious to the Dwimmerlaik’s presence allowed for a more diplomatic approach.  When beginning to discuss the shadow Cassandreth felt that Ylvana would become a suitable ally for herself to work with.
