Ichabod Crane AKA Diomedes
Character Identity Information
Name: This individual is known by several names. His name as the Daedric General, is Diomedes. Among Earth, he uses the name of Ichabod Crane. He also has, at this point, a name that cannot be used (This is a name that literally no character will know unless I agree for them to). It is his Eldyrannth name; Talrin.
Age: Unknown. He looks to be in his mid-twenties.
Gender: He has two genders. In his Daedric form, he is male. In his Eldyrannth for, he is a Kae.
Species: As Diomedes, a Daedra.
Origin/Nationality: Vorserend City, Earth.
Occupation: He is the Daedric General of Time and Dimension (Daedra is the Eldyrannth word for demon). He is also the Guardian of the Promiscuous Palace.
Height: In his Daedric form he is 6ft9. In his Eldyrannth form, he is 7ft6.
Eye Colour: Black. When people look into his eyes, all they can think about are the terrible things that have happened to them throughout their life. Looking into his eyes is to be exposed to one of his abilities, the Killing Intent, but he can hide this by wearing something that stops anyone from looking into his eyes. Unless someone is a strong enough telepathic to prevent this from happening as they can sense the psychic attack and can block it out. A Mental Firewall also prevents this.
Hair Colour: Black.
Physical Description: Diomedes is a very tall, slender human looking man. The only difference between himself and a human, physically, is that sometimes he has bat like wings emerging from his back. These are hidden most of the time, making others think of him as a mere human, although he looks unnaturally pale. He is extremely handsome and pretty almost to the point of being beautiful. He is muscled, but not so much that it looks ungainly. With her slender, lithe body shape, it is easy to mistaken him for being weaker than he actually is. To underestimate Diomedes, could mean your very death.
He has a second form, a dragon form. He is 70 metres from snout to the tip of the tail, with a wingspan of 280 metres. This does give some indication of his age, putting him between 3,000 and 3,500 years of age but this is only if you counter only the Eldyrannth side. The Daedric side may make him appear smaller than he actually is. While some of the features of his dragon form strikes a resemblance to an Eldyr dragon, there are major differences. His scales are shaped differently, and there are various spikes that Eldyr’s lack. He is also more muscular, and his scales are even harder and a dark, almost coal black.
Daedric Eldyr form:
Eldyrannth form: Please note that he will rarely be in this form, but this is actually how he was born.
Personality, Traits and Abilities
General Overview: Talrin can be a very hard man to figure out, mainly because he does not offer much information about himself, especially to strangers. He is a very quiet individual, and does not talk much unless it’s needed. He is someone that cannot stand small talk, and will always choose to be silent than continue a meaningless conversation. One of Talrin’s most unique qualities, is the fact that he has a smile that everyone finds pleasing and infectious, which is quite a stark contrast from his rather anti-social seeming behaviour. His smile is described as being very handsome, and suiting him. His grin even more so. They are described as being ‘full of life’. This is actually a result of his ExoSin, Talaiael, whose aspect is Life and Soul. His laugh is a perfect example of this. People find it extremely infectious, and it has a curious effect on any wildlife around him. Wildlife tends to go crazy, and make a racket and become excited. Sometimes, they would even approach him, without a shred of fear. His laugh is often described as the most beautiful laugh people have ever heard, and people often feel rather empty when he stops laughing. However, he doesn’t tend to smile, grin or laugh that often.
Talrin is a very calm person, that does not allow his emotions to rule him again in the most stressful of situations. He keeps a level head so that he can come up with a solution, better than if he was allowing his emotions to influence his decisions. He has an exceptional command of his emotions and even if he was in a towering fury, it would not be reflected in his mannerisms unless he’s in a fully blown rage. The only time when emotion can get the better of him, is a condition that is common among Eldyrannth, where they become angry enough that they produce a large amount of lactic acid in their bodies, which they cannot naturally break down which would sent him into a state of berserk where he cannot even tell friend from foe. But otherwise, he does not allow his emotions to get out of control and strictly controls his anger to try and prevent himself from going into a berserk state. Talrin is a very discreet man, who holds many secrets and does not give out information without reason. He will even keep secrets from himself, which has happened many times due to the fact that he has the ability to communicate with his past and future selves. However it has been demonstrated many times that his future-self holds secrets from himself, even allowing him to make mistakes in which to learn from. He also respects the privacy of others, unless the invasion is given over by consent, such as being his slave. He is someone that tends to work quietly in the background, and not draw much attention to himself. He usually watches, paying close attention, and being very aware of his environment. He is very slow to trust others and usually avoids questions about himself. He is very careful with his words, and often thinks before he acts. Talrin is an extremely patient man, and can easily play a very long-con game. He never really hurries with things, and takes his time to ensure that he does a proper job of it. For example, he took several thousand years to take down the Daedric King, and instill himself as the High King. Talrin is a very private person, and does not eagerly share information about himself and will not answer personal questions except to a very select few individuals. He doesn’t like personal information about him circling about as he really does not like people knowing much above his private life. Talrin is quite professional, and speaks with a strong command of language and is very articulate. He usually thinks carefully before saying something, as he doesn’t like messing up his words and he certainly doesn’t like explaining further. He is a very hard worker, and when he is given a task he will work tirelessly until it is done. When explaining something, or working with others, he will keep a very professional manner and when it comes to something he knows about, he will speak in a very knowledgeable way. He is a strong listener, and will often remain in the background and listen carefully. He dresses in a professional manner, especially when working or out and about. He will always keep his promises and his word, and will work hard to ensure that he does. As such, he will never make a promise that he knows he cannot keep. Talrin is quite proper in his manner, and rarely swears unless he is very surprised, or really trying to emphasise a point. He always keeps a tidy home, and he always keeps his workplace clean and well organised. He doesn’t like to make a scene, and he most certainly doesn’t like drawing negative attention to himself and he especially doesn’t like to do something that would humiliate or embarrass himself. He has quite good manners, and he doesn’t like looking like a mess when seen by others. Talrin is often considered as being very callous, because he seems to completely disregard others feelings when saying things. Often, he will condense an entire sentence to that of a single word. This has sometimes gotten him into trouble with others, because he will say something that seems very bad, when he actually means something else. Those close to him often know what he is talking about, but those that aren’t familiar with his mannerisms can quite often misunderstand what he meant, and become offended even though he genuinely did not intent to cause any offense. Often, especially when in a dire situation, he can appear to be dismissive of peoples feelings as he wants to try and focus on the solution to their problem. This personality aspect proves quite useful in the field of medicine, as it allows him to put any personal disgust or sorrow aside, to continue working.
Talrin is rather confident, especially when it comes to things that he is knowledgeable. He will always step forwards to give his opinion, or to teach others what they are lacking, and that he knows and he can be quite assertive. He does not let anyone dominate him, or to make him feel intimidated. Even if it is with someone that technically outranks him, he will treat them more equally than outranking him. There are a few exceptions to this, such as some of his duplicates that serve others, but even so he still tends to be on equal footing rather than subservient unless it’s due to extreme circumstances. Due to his confidence, he takes criticism with dignity, and will strive to learn from his mistakes and rarely makes the same mistake twice. He isn’t often swayed easily by the opinions of others, and prefers to figure things out on his own rather than relying on others but he will ask for help if he knows he needs it. He is confident, not arrogant, especially as he will admit if he’s made a mistake, especially since he is very honest. He will not willingly lie to someone, although he might sometimes only give a little bit of the information and avoiding what he doesn’t want to be known, so that he can avoid having the lie about it. When giving his opinions, he will always be completely honest, even if it means that the receiver doesn’t like hearing what he has to say. He doesn’t like being accused of lying, or being dishonest, and will strive to prove otherwise. It is why he always keeps meticulous records of everything that he does, even going so far as to emulate his son, [[Temaelrin Eldyrannth|Temaelrin]] in having his tablet record everything that is going on around him, so that he can prove later that he didn’t do what he was being accused of. Despite the fact that Talrin doesn’t think that he is honourable, he does display some traits of being honourable. He will never lie to anyone, and will always be as honest as possible. He always keeps his promises and works hard to ensure that he doesn’t break it. He has quite a strong sense of ethics, even though it might not be entirely what people consider ‘good’. But, one of his well known codes, is that despite having the ability to give people Genetic Modifications, he doesn’t actively go out and give them to people. Instead, he waits for them to come to him. This is not something that he has ever budged on. Due to the circumstances in his life, Talrin has become very independent, and has learnt how to be completely self-reliant. Thus he’s well able to go off and do things alone, without really needing any help from anyone. As mentioned before, he protects his privacy and doesn’t often talk about himself to others, often leaving it up to them to try and figure him out. He is quite introverted, which explains why he isn’t often found in social events. If he does attend one, he often wants to remove himself afterwards so that he can rest and recover from the strain of socialisation. There are only a few people that he can tolerate to being around when wanting to be alone. He doesn’t talk that often, and he loathes small talk. He tends to think a lot, as he is quite pensive, and will sometimes appear to just sit there silently staring off into space, but he is in fact deep within his thoughts. He enjoys peace and quiet, and always tries to ensure that he has somewhere like that, that he can retreat to. Even though he can work well in a team, he actually prefers to work alone with nobody to disturb him. To those that are close to him, especially his family, he is extremely loyal. He will do anything he can to ensure that they are safe. He has even gone as far as to bring down the old city of Vorserend, to ensure that the Eldyrannth, and his family, continued to live on, despite the detriment to himself, especially his mental state. Unless they were to do something very bad to him, with genuinely malicious intent, then he will remain steadfastly loyal. He is very protective of them, and will put himself in the way of danger to ensure that the ones he wants to protect, are safe and away from the danger. He can also be quite protective of the places that he considers ‘his’ such as his lab at Kaer Eldyr and does not take kindly to intruders.
Due to events in his life, Talrin tends to be quite cynical. He doesn’t trust others easily, and one must work hard in order to gain it and even then, often when it seems like he trusts you, he doesn’t. As such, he tends to keep his emotions to himself, so that no one can tell what he is truly feeling. Due to the fact that is he pessimistic, he always prepares for things to end their worst, and makes arrangements if such a thing were to pass. While this can annoy other people when he seems to always see the worst in others, this has indeed saved his skin a number of times within the Daedra Realm. It is a habit to think up of the worst that could happen, and expecting failure, and it is a habit he is unlikely to break out of because this allows him to come up with contingency plans to any number of situations. Talrin is quite a perfectionist, and will accept nothing but perfect from those that work for him, those that serve him, and from himself. He is always doubt checking his work, and often prefers to work on it himself, so that he can oversee every aspect of it, so he can ensure that it goes perfectly. If someone else does the work, he will always double check everything to ensure that it is properly done. He also doesn’t tend to take praise, when he feels that he doesn’t deserve it, as he didn’t achieve his best and he didn’t achieve perfection. Talrin is quite a proud man, and he hates failure. While he accepts his mistakes and failures with dignity, it doesn’t stop him from feeling ashamed with himself. He works hard to ensure that it won’t happen again. His proudful nature is often why he doesn’t tend to take part in activities that will mean he will make a fool of himself, or shame himself. Or make a mess of himself, especially as he is very vain. He has put a lot of effort into his appearance, and he doesn’t tend to appreciate having it messed up. He doesn’t like going out, unless he’s at his best. Talrin even went so far as to find the best ingredients possible, to make himself his own shampoo and body wash so that he would always look his best. It also has the added advantage of ensuring that he smells his best, too. He wears neat clothing, and doesn’t tend to go for something that can be easily messed up. One trait that is somewhat well known about Talrin, is that he is very vindictive. For those that do him, and often his family, any wrongdoing, they find themselves on the bad side of Talrin. He will drag them down into the Daedra Realm and ensure that they are punished for their actions. Often, the punishment will end in only one way. Servitude.
When it comes to his work, Talrin is very ambitious. He will strive towards the greater goal, and doesn’t tend to let anything get in the way of it. He thinks ahead, and plans to find the best way to achieve his goal and will often work with a single minded determination and he will do it in the most efficient way possible. He will break things down into smaller tasks and work on each one so that he can build them up into the much larger goal. He tends to get straight to the point, instead of beating around the bush, and he doesn’t tend to like wasting time and can become quite frustrated with those that keep wasting his time. He will save time, and money, wherever possible but not at the expense of his work. When it comes to his work, and sometimes in other aspects of his life, Talrin is quite analytical. He will learn everything he can about a subject, to expend his knowledge, and to give him a better understanding. He is very good at going through information that he has been given, and reason his way through using logic, to digest it and to give him an accurate representation of what he’s reading. When it comes to his work, Talrin is extremely focused, and complete devotes his attention to it to the point where he excludes all others. He will often ignore people when he is engrossed in his work, and he finds it irritating when he is pulled away from it. Like most in his family. Talrin is very intelligent. He is naturally very curious, and always seeking the answers to his questions. He uses logic and reasoning to help him find his way towards the answers, and does it in a quick and efficient manner. He is well spoken, and has a strong vocabulary along with a very aristocratic accent which makes him sound just as intelligent as he is. Due to the fact that he is usually very quiet, and tends to step back and study everything around him instead of diving headfirst, Talrin is quite observant, as well as perceptive. He tends to notice things that others miss, and is able to link things together in his mind about things unknown before. He observes a lot, and remembers a lot, too, as he is incredibly meticulous about it. This helps with the fact that he is studious, as it lets him pick up lots of facts that he can absorb and process. He likes to learn new things, and will strive to learn more than he previously did. He can become frustrated if answers are not forthcoming, however he isn’t easily dissuaded from trying to find the answers. One of Talrin’s biggest flaws is that he is a Workaholic. He will spend long hours at work, and will work himself to the point of exhaustion and he often tries to go beyond that. With no one keeping an eye on him, he will also forget to eat and drink as well, thus causing him to neglect himself in favour of his work. He will even neglect his own health, such as working even if he is sick, and if he’s too sick to work it becomes extremely frustrating for him. He doesn’t like being pulled away from what he’s doing, and will make it known that he isn’t happy about it.
Strengths, Skills and Abilities:
- Genetic Science: One of the things that Diomedes has become very adept at, is Genetic Science. He can easily research and pull apart DNA and pinpoint what genes, do what function. Not only that, but he has devised methods of being able to manipulate the genes of an individual, through the use of exotic science. He has genetically altered his Daedric body, so that he not only has the reproductive organs of an Eldyrannth, but he also gives off Eldyrannth seed, which he can switch out with his Daedric form as he is very particular about who he allowed to have his Eldyrannth genes as they are the genes of his previous body. He has also altered the brain of his Daedric body, to be an Eldyrannth’s brain so that he can employ the use of their intelligence, as well as their telepathic abilities.
- Killing Intent: Diomedes can send of waves of intense Killing Intent. This is a psychic attack, made even more powerful due to his Eldyrannth telepathic abilities which are immensely strong (Stronger than most, possibly all, telepaths on Earth. For an average Telepath his mind would be like a mountain surrounding them). This can freeze intended targets in their tracks and paralyse them in fear. It can also cause his targets to begin hallucinating. Everything around them will appear much darker, and Diomedes himself would look like a black shadow with glittering black eyes. Everything will become distorted and the target may hear screams and insane rantings and gibbering. They may also see everything that they privately fear about, as the hallucinations draw upon the victim so, for example, if the victim was afraid of spiders, their hallucinations will centre around spiders of all shapes and sizes. This can result in the death of the target from extreme fear.
- Time and Dimension: Diomedes has the ability to pull himself across the Timeline as well as hop from one Dimension to the other. He also has a unique understanding of each subject, only being rivalled by Wolfie and Neptune. He can also summon creatures, such as his daedric helpers, through dimensional rifts that he can create anywhere. He also has manipulation over Time, being able to slow it down, speed it up or seeming to freeze it.
- Dragon form: As he is an Eldyrannth, he has a dragon form in which he can turn into. His servants assume it is his daedric form, which he encourages them to believe. Due to the daedric influence of his body and home, his dragon form is very difference from Talivana's. See physical description above. He is 70 metres from snout to the tip of the tail, with a wingspan of 280 metres. He can breathe fire in this form and is immensely strong.
- Telepathy: As he has given himself certain Eldyrannth features such as their brain, Diomedes is an extremely powerful telepath. He can handle the weight of tens of thousands of active minds. He can also communicate with people not of his species but the risk towards the non-Eldyrannth species is great. He can also bridge a non-telepathic mind into the mind of another (Either telepathic or not).
- Telekinesis: For an Eldyrannth, he is exceptionally strong with telekinesis. He is able to shift weights that are many, many times his weight and his control is a lot more fine than what other Eldyrannth can even hope to achieve. He is also able to easily multi-task with his telekinesis, and manipulate many objects at once.
- Fly high and tolerate low oxygen levels in Eldyr form: Due to his one way breathing system (Like a bird), he is able to fly higher than other winged creatures as he is able to tolerate lower oxygen environments as he is able to extract oxygen more efficiently than beings with a two way breathing system (Like a human).
- Scales: His scales are as hard as diamond. You would need a lot of energy to break through the scales. The scales are small and layered in such a way that allows him to move. The scales themselves are not flexible. These are pigmented.
- Skeleton and Super-Human strength: Strengthened skeletal structure that has a high tensile strength and yet is nearly 20% lighter than a mammalian skeleton. In human form he can lift about 4 times his weight and in his dragon form she can lift twice his weight.
- Ichor and healing: When he bleeds the scab forms a resin looking covering over the wound (like a tree). This is to protect the wound from infection. He can heal in nearly a fraction of the time of a human and this includes broken bones. The Inchor in his blood is broken down to Chor (What he uses for the fire. See Eldyrannth extra info for more detail) and stem cells. When in a battle and breathing fire a lot, his body goes into overdrive to produce more Chor. This in turn produces more stem cells for healing, and thus heals slightly faster. However this puts a huge tax on the bodies resources.
- Fire: His body breaks down Inchor into stem cells and Chor. The stem cells go off to heal while the Chor reacts further to produce the flammable Gas of Chor. This is stored in a gland at the edge of the lungs, with tubes going up the throat to the top of the mouth. There is a small spark producer here, that ignites the gas to produce the flame. Inchor can he spat out alongside the gas, creating lethal napalm effect. The vapour from the liquid is also a heavy irritant and any unprotected eyes can be affected. This is why when producing flame the Eldyrannth closes their third eyelid which they have in both forms. The third eyelid is used in both aquatic and aerial activities. They can also spit out Inchor without igniting it to put a waterproof layer in something. However this is highly flammable.
- Killing Intent: Anyone with a Mental Firewall will never be able to fall victim to this. And those with psychic abilities will be able to fight him off. Unless his mind is stronger than theirs. The only telepaths that would be able to fend him off are extremely powerful ones. This is due to the fact that he still has the mind of an Eldyrannth and Eldyrannth by nature are extremely powerful telepaths.
- Time and Dimension: He only uses these abilities due to his intimate knowledge of how they work. He knows that messing around with them too much will attract unholy creatures even by daedric standards, and can tear the fabric of the Universe. The only abilities he uses the most, is to pull himself throughout Time (And even then, he doesn't mess with too much unless he needs to, due to the possible consequences) and summoning his daedric servants into the mortal realm as the Dimension of Hell is loosely connected with the Mortal plane. Although no one knows this, but Diomedes is one of the reasons why daedra haven't taken over Earth yet, as he tightly controls the Dimensional barrier between the two planes. (Again, for my version of Hell).
- Cold (In dragon form): When he is in his Eldyr form, he slows down in colder weather. This is due in part of his cold blood as he does require the sun to regulate his temperature and if he is too cold, he tends to slow down.
- Inchor and the Crystals: In return for the large amount of power gained from using the powers (When he does use them), over time, the crystals power turns the Inchor into crystal itself from the exotic radiation that the crystals give off every time they are used. As Inchor is a constant presence in the blood, this essentially crystallises the blood. In the later stages of this illness, as the blood thickens and the crystals scratch them from the inside out, it can become very painful. If death does not occur soon, the victim can ask another to end their life to end the suffering. The more the Eldyrannth uses their crystals, the quicker the blood turns to crystal. They are also more susceptible to infections the further down the illness they are. Most hope that they die of a virus then the crystallisation of their blood.
- Telepathy: The Eldyrannth are a race that has a natural, telepathic, hive mind which Diomedes has replaced his own brain with. This means that Diomedes is an extremely powerful telepath and can hear a thousand voices at once. With people not of his species, his mind can overwhelm other races, and they can become lost in his mind easily.
- Telekinesis: If he tries to move more then he can handle, he can use up a lot of energy and pass out, even strain his mind. To be able to use telekinesis, he needs to concentrate and if someone distracts him, he can lose what grip he had. Also, he may accidentally trigger it when he is angry and cause the person he is angry at fly away from him. His telekinesis can be so precise that he can use it to crush veins and arteries inside someone else's mind. This can be taxing on him due to the fine control.
- Fire: He only has a limited amount of Inchor at one time and must wait for his body to produce more.
Ambitions (Hopes/Dreams): He wants to take over Hell and become King (For my version of Hell)
Hobbies and Interests: By nature, Diomedes is a Scientist. Thus he tends to spend much of his spare time involved in his studies which includes things like reading and experiments. When he is deeply involved, there is very little that can pull him away and he rarely eats and sleeps when in the middle of doing something. When not working on his projects, he often spends his time having sex (If someone is available), as he very much enjoys having sex. This is a very, very unknown fact about Diomedes, and very few people know about this, but he actually rather likes to play on string instruments, like a violin. He is also quite good at painting, but he rarely does these hobbies. He usually doesn’t have the time for it.
Personal Sexual Information
Sexual Orientation: Pansexual.
- Having unprotected sex, especially if it results in pregnancy.
- He loves making someone suffering during sex which can mean causing them pain and humiliating them. He does this in a wide variety of ways that are just too many to list here. He can be very sadistic
- Any of the UFF Species. He loves having when with them due to their attitudes towards sex.
- Sluts, whores and those with a free attitude towards sex. He loves having sex with a freshly filled pussy, and loves filling a pussy that is to be fucked by another cock.
- Making love to someone in front of their loved ones, either consensual or willing with the partner.
- Due to his turn on with sluts, he likes it when someone he loves has sex with another person, especially if it results in a cum filled pussy. He also likes it when they become pregnant from someone else, as that it the ultimate level of a slut.
- Raping someone, and not just rape-play either. He loves raping unwilling partners. It gives him a thrill as it is one of the most humiliating and degrading things he can do to someone.
- Sexually corrupting someone who is known to be a very sweet, innocent individual who is a well known prude. Especially if it turns them into a completely deprived slut.
- He is an extreme Sadist. He loves to make people hurt, and he loves to make them suffer. He finds this to be a massive turn on and it's something he needs to do on occasion in order to keep him satisfied. Luckily, he can always disappear off to the Daedra Realm temporarily to satisfy these particular urges.
- Having sex with someone who is cheating on their monogamous partner for him.
- Fucking someone deep and hard.
- Having sex with someone he doesn’t love, or even know.
- Gore and Vore.
- Necrophilia, scat and water sports.
- Being forced to be the submissive in the relationship/sex.
- Succubi and Incubi are instant turn offs for him. He finds them plain, boring and predictable.
Penis Length: Diomedes has a cock that is 18 inches long and has a 10inch circumference.
Breast Size: N/A.
Sensitivity: Average for a Daedric General male. In his Eldyrannth form, however, he is extremely sensitive.
Additional Sexual Information: Running along the bottom of the penis is a spine that makes several hard protrusion along the lower part of the cock that the Eldyrannth can make pulsate at will. This usually makes it feel like he is coming inside of a female, and it can sometimes be so powerful that it feels like his entire dick is vibrating inside of her. It is a biological trick that he, as a male Eldyrannth, uses to trick a female Eldyrannth into heat and to drive her wild in mating lust. The head is also rather large and is slightly pointed so that it is easier to get the penis into the female vagina. Ringed behind the head of the dick like the ribs of a spine, going down to about mid-shaft while getting smaller each time, is a ring of hard flesh that pulsates much like their shaft. Each ring wraps around the entire shaft to the spine that runs along the underside of the penis. While Diomedes may take it from someone else, the chances are extremely low that he will. He has a particular taste when it comes to partners doing that to him and not many really fit the bill. And even then, he doesn't really like taking it in his Daedric form.

Father: He has been disowned.
Mother: He has been disowned.

Medical Record: In his current body, he has no medical conditions that he knows of.
DOB: 4th January, 1300 BC.
Talrin was born a thousand years after his elder sister, Lyravana, along with his twin sister, Talivana. One of the things immediately noticed about the newborn twins, were that they were sporting two hearts, unlike usual Eldyrannth. When they were extremely young, they had many tests done on them but other than the hearts, the Doctors were unable to find anything unusual apart from some strange brain readings but they were unable to pinpoint to the source. The twins were very healthy, active and intelligent.
The two were extremely close when they were children, with them rarely being in a separate room from one another. The two were usually holding hands, and would often act as one person. The two were very well loved by their family, and often visited by Lyravana and her mate, Wolfrin. One day, when the two of them were ten years old, Wolfrin came into their bedroom where they were working together on a drawing. The twins looked up at Wolfrin, smiling at the sight of their brother. Wolfrin came and sat beside them, looking at what they were drawing. It appeared to be a star system, with two stars,
“What's that?” Wolfrin asked the twins. As one, the two of them smiled,
“Home.” They replied at the exact same moment. Wolfrin picked up the picture and looked at it carefully. It was actually a picture of Epsus Prime. A system that was currently waiting the settlement of the EPSI Federation. He put the picture down and for several minutes, and watched as the twins were colouring it in. They still held hands, but worked so well together that it was like watching a single person working on it.
“I came here because I wanted to talk to you about something very important. Something you're going to have to work on for a very long time.” Wolfrin then said, putting a hand gently on the picture to get their attention. The twins looked up, looking interested.
“Listen. I know you're both aware that you're special, in a way. You have two hearts, which is something that's not occurred before. But the Doctors don't know what it is. As far as we all know, it's a random mutation. However, there is something the two of you must know now, so that you can guard its secret. You're both what are called ExoSins, and that makes you both very special.” He looked at Talrin, “You're going to need to protect your sister. There are some bad people, who intend her harm. And her life is in danger.” He focused on them both again, “You must never let anyone else know of this. Your lives will be in danger, and… I can't bear the thought of losing either of you...” The last part was said quietly, and there was a sadness to the eyes that the twins couldn't understand. Talrin nodded in understanding of his words,
“I won't let anyone hurt Talivana.” He said in a serious voice before Talivana added, “We promise not to tell anyone.”
Wolfrin nodded, satisfied. He looked at the two of them for a moment longer before he stood up. He put his hands on their shoulders before he then left them to their drawing once again.
As the twins grew a little older, they spent some time apart from one another as they diverged into separate interests. Talivana took more of an interest in the fight against the Daedra while Talrin had more of a scientific turn of mind. He loved doing little experiments and would read numerous scrolls on a large number of subjects, seemingly absorbing every scrap of information he could. While neither of them liked being away from one another, they occasionally had to, but would become distressed after a time.
When Talrin was twenty, he was having some lessons with another Eldyrannth; whom was a Scientists. Due to his keen interest, and the promise he showed, the Scientist was more than happy to take him on. She began to teach Talrin the basics of biology, giving him a basic education. He eagerly soaked up all the information she gave him, taking notes and learning extremely quickly, especially for an Eldyrannth. He returned home, only to find that Talivana was not there. Worried for her, as he had promised to protect her, he began to search about the city. Other Eldyrannth became involved in the search, but no one could find a trace of her within the city limits. Before they were able to get a search party organised to search further afield, Talivana returned to town, telling them that she had become lost and a kind man showed her the way back home. Talrin didn’t care who it was that saved her; he was just so happy to see that she was back home again. He clung to her for hours that night, and clung tighter still when they were in bed, as if afraid that if he let go, he would lose her again and that thought caused him so much pain he couldn’t think straight.
The twins continued to grow, and develop together. Despite their different interests and career paths, the two twins were still extremely close. Before their telepathy began to develop, their minds were interwoven to the point where sometimes they forgot who was who, despite their gender differences. They would often finish each other’s sentences. Talrin continued spending time reading and doing experiments while Talivana spent her time learning what she could from those in the Eldyr High Guard. The two reached maturity and officially went down their separate paths. The two of them still lived within the same home, as neither of them could bear the separation from one another.
While Talivana continued with her career, Talrin focused completely on his studies. He read his way through the Vorserend Library, trying to learn as much as he could. In his mind; the more he could learn, the more means he had at his disposal to protect his sister. He loved her so much, beyond any kind of brotherly love, and he wanted to do as much as he could to keep her safe from the threat that Wolfrin spoke to him about. The strange cloaked harvesters, that wanted to rip Talivana apart to get what they wanted. They would torture her, and kill her. Talrin was obsessed in finding a way to save her.
During his years of study, he came across a spirited young Eldyrannth called Lusravana. Despite the fact that she seemed rather ditsy and almost air-headed at times, she was incredibly intelligent. She, like him, was a scientist. She dabbled in the same specialist subject as him, although she was more involved with biochemistry and could have studied to become a Doctor, however she was not that interested in becoming a healer. As she matured, she went more and more into the topic of Science involved in sex and mating. She and Talrin could put their heads together numerous times, as their specialists complimented each other. Not long after they both matured, they fell into a sexual and romantic relationship. Despite the fact that he loved Talivana, in a romantic sense, he was still able to love Lusravana in a similar, but completely different way. He also felt no jealousy whenever Lusravana took other lovers besides himself. He didn’t care; as long as it made her happy.
Talrin became so adept at his specialist field that by the age of four-hundred, he had completely decoded his own genetic code and was able to map out the entire Eldyrannth genome several years later. He discretely collected samples from various Eldyrannth, including his sister, Wolfrin and Nepovana. He found their DNA to be the most interesting; especially Wolfrin and Nepovana. They had genes that he could not identify, and he had trouble figuring out what they did.
When he was six-hundred, Talrin had discovered an artefact with some interesting properties. For a while now, he had been moving about Earth, studying the other native species, especially the more intelligent and sentient ones. He found the artefact hidden away in an unknown, primitive village. As he studied it, he discovered that it allowed him to move the consciousness of another living being, into the body of a new one. With the primitive people of this world, he experimented on them by swapping minds to study the effects, and to study how it was done. Not only that, but on his travels he encountered a lone Daedra. Instead of killing it, or banishing it back to the Daedric Realm, Talrin captured it and ran experiments on it to try and figure out the Daedra.
However, when he was eight-hundred, he was caught by one of the elders in their city. He was taken back to Vorserend, where he was placed on trial and found guilty of experimentation on unwilling subjects. Talrin was stripped of his gauntlets, as well as his accomplice; Lusravana. The two of them were forced to leave the city that they had been born in, and raised. Both of them were separated from their twins which caused them both an obscure kind of pain but they leaned on each other in order to become used to being without Talivana, and Zhalrin. But in a way, they found themselves completely alone, with only each other to rely on. This was fine with them, as it allowed them to focus more on their studies. Not long after, Talrin was tracking a Daedra, however this Daedra was like no other he had ever encountered. He looked similar to a Tau’ri, however he appeared to have some strange temporal and xician abilities. Talrin and Lusravana tricked the Daedra into following them, and got him to focus on Lusravana while Talrin sneaked up on him and was able to implant his mind into that of the Daedra General. His mind was strong, however, he was no match for a fully trained Eldyrannth. Talrin fought with him, and was able to completely eject the Daedra from this mind. Before he had done that, Talrin went through the Daedra’s mind, lifting his memories. His name was Diomedes, and he was the Daedric General of Time and Dimension. This gave him a wealth of information, and intelligence about the Daedra that he could use against them.
His old body, however, was left without a mind. Talrin, now calling himself Diomedes, took genetic information from his old body and used it to do genetic modifications on his new body. He manipulated it enough to give him an Eldyrannth brain, as well as their reproductive organs as the Daedric Generals was human in shape and only ten inches long. Far inferior from his own. He also made it so that he could give off his Eldyrannth genes, however made it so that it was optional, so that he could get someone pregnant with either Daedra, or Eldyrannth genes.
Talrin realised that with this new body came an opportunity to deal with the Daedra permanently. He could infiltrate the Daedra, work out how they functioned and using that knowledge to bring them down. He could take complete control, and then use that power to shape the Daedra into something else. Something that was different from what they were now. He wanted to tame the Daedra. He disposed of his old body, so that no trace of it was left. He began to work on learning how his new powers worked, and was quickly able to discover how to get himself into the Daedric Realm and out again. This was part of the memories he had lifted from the old Diomedes. He settled himself into the Daedric realm, and began his investigations.
Talrin had only been within the Daedric Realm for a week, solidifying his position within the Daedra and already spying on the other Daedric Generals for any signs of weaknesses that he could use against them. He had already figured a way of disrupting things for the Daedric General of Desire, to make her reputation suffer and for her followers to become disenchanted. He had already begin working on that, by heading to the main Daedric City where he planned on saying certain things, to certain individuals and cause them to mess up which would cause problems down the line in a surgical attack. He was walking through the main city square, where there was a large crowd gathered with many cheers and mocking laughter. Usually Talrin would join in, to make himself appear like one of them, but this time he didn’t. He intended on walking right past on his mission. However he froze in his tracks when he heard a scream of pain, before the laughter drowned it out. That voice sent a cold tingle down his spine.
Completely forgetting what he was doing, he turned on the spot and headed directly into the crowd, pushing and shoving at Daedra to move them aside so that he could get through. When he finally broke through the crowd, he stopped dead in his tracks as shock overcame him, like a bucket of ice cold water.
Before him, naked and bound in a wooden headstock restraint, was an Eldyrannth. His father, Kayrin. His ankles were linked together with a bar between them, and he was on his knees, his face grimaced with pain. His pale skin was smudged with dirt, and marred by various cuts and bruises. The most notable were the whip cuts that dotted the man’s back. Behind him, stood the Daedric General of Anguish, Xarmuhm, holding a whip made from several metal chains with spikes lining them. The General raised the whip before snapping it down, causing Kayrin to scream in pain as the metal strands collided with his back, drawing yet more blood from his flesh. The crowd around Talrin started roaring with laughter, delighted in the man’s pain. The Daedric Eldyrannth felt a searing anger building inside of him, and he was on the verge of lashing out at everyone there and killing them all.
However, his anger suddenly melted away when his father’s eyes suddenly met his own. They were filled with pain, and yet he could see the steel within the man. Talrin had never felt so proud of his father, and yet he had never felt so helpless. Most of the time he was in full control of a situation, even when being banished by his own people, but this time, there was nothing that he could do. He was forced to watch as Xarmuhm continued on with his torture, entertaining the gathered crowd with their prisoner. Talrin had yet to master his Temporal abilities, so he couldn’t even pause Time even if he tried. And even if he could… he knew there were protective measures put into place that would prevent him from leaving undetected. And if he rescued his Father… his cover would be blown and the entire plan would crumble before his eyes. He had sacrificed everything for nothing.
Unable to watch any further and completely helpless to do anything, Talrin turned and pushed his way back through the crowd, with his father’s cries of pain almost mocking him as he fled the scene. For the rest of the day, he spend his time in solitude, trying to work out a way to get his father out of there, without ruining his plans. But nothing he could come up with, was going to work. He was trapped in a corner, with no way out. Well, there was one way… but Talrin didn’t know if he could bring himself to do it. But he was running out of options, and running out of time.
Later in that night, he left his seclusion and made his way to the Daedric Prison; Xarmuhm’s realm. This particular prison was situated on the top of a mountain and it was easy for Talrin to gain access, with his own rank of the Daedric General. Xarmuhm himself came to meet Talrin in the grand entrance hall. The half decomposed corpse gave a rather sickly smile, “Here to torture the Eldyrannth yourself?” He asked in a low, pleased purr. Talrin twitched slightly. The very sound of his voice made Talrin grow angry. He forced himself to give a dark smirk,
“Of course. Why else would I be here?” He asked, keeping his voice low and cold. Xarmuhm’s sick smile widened as he let out a low hiss,
“Come with me, then.” The General said before turning and leading Talrin further into the castle and down into the high security vaults. There were only a few guards, who were lazily standing outside each jail cell. The Daedric General took Talrin to the very last cell, before pulling a key from his pocket and unlocking the cell door. He pulled it open, allowing Talrin to see inside. Kayrin was being held up by his wrists, high in the air. Shackled to his two ankles were several, heavy metal balls that Talrin could see were straining his father’s body, stretching it out and causing him a considerable amount of pain. He appeared unconscious, however Talrin knew that he was awake. He turned to Xarmuhm,
“Leave me be with him.” He ordered. The corpse laughed softly, as if he thought he understood, before nodding his head. Talrin stepped into the cell, and the door boomed shut behind him. He turned around, and also closed the shutter in the grate, to completely block any view from the outside. He then moved to his father and carefully undid the heavy metal balls, before putting them aside as soundlessly as possible. He then reached up and undid the shackles, causing the limp body to fall, but he managed to catch Kayrin before he hit the floor. Talrin then sank to his knees, gently lowering his father, whose eyes fluttered open, allowing Talrin to see his deep purple eyes, filled with a quiet pain. Kayrin smiled slightly,
“Ah… Talrin… I would… know you… anywhere…” He said softly, his voice a soft rasp. Talrin’s jaw clenched as he tried to control the tide of emotion that threatened to sweep him away. For a moment, he couldn’t bring himself to utter a single word. Everything he planned to say died on his lips. His chest seemed too tight for him to be able to speak and his jaw seemed to tremble slightly.
“Father… I’m so sorry…” He gasped, his voice low. Kayrin smiled wider, lifting a trembling hand to stroke along Talrin’s cheek.
“Don’t… be sorry, son…” Kayrin said softly, his eyebrows creasing and making him look almost concerned, “I… was following you… trying to understand… I do now… I know what you seek to do…. You do… as you must... I’ve put you in danger…”
Talrin shook his head in denial, “No… I should have expected this... “ He started, but Kayrin pressed his hand into his cheek to silence him.
“No… my son. I should not… have followed… but I had to know… I was not careful enough….” Kayrin said before he coughed slightly, a trickle of blood escaping the corner of his lip but he did not seem to notice, nor care. Talrin, his eyes filled with tears, reached up and wiped the blood away. He looked down into the sad eyes of his father, wanting nothing more than to carry him far away from this place.
“There’s no… way out…” Kayrin said, his voice now taking a desperate note, “Kill me, son…. you have to… or they will force… your cover… from me…” He seemed to strain to talk, as if it was taking every single effort to speak. Talrin felt himself shudder as he automatically rebelled against the idea,
“No… I… I can’t…” Talrin said, feeling the tears clawing at his throat. He felt something wet in his cheeks, and realised that he was crying, the tears dripping down onto Kayrin’s chest. His father moved his hand slightly, brushing away the tears on his cheeks.
“You must… there is no… other way… You know that…” Kayrin said, his weak voice somehow firm and so father-like that Talrin was taken back for a moment. He lowered his head for several long moments, trying to turn that over in his head. His automatic response was to reject the idea. To toss it far away from him. He just couldn’t. And yet… he looked back up into his father’s deep purple eyes and now could only see the acceptance in them. The sight made his throat tightened even more. But… he knew in the back of his mind that this was the only way to save his Father.
With a shaking hand, he reached deep into his cloak and pulled out a dagger, of Eldyrannth design. It was one that Kayrin had once gifted him, when he had reached adulthood. Little did either of them know, that at the point of Talrin accepting the gift, that the knife would later be used to take the life of the man that had forged it. It was a cruel, twisted joke. He lifted the dagger slightly, the blade glinting softly in the dim light of the cell. It trembled slightly, as Talrin fought with himself and it seemed to remain there, frozen in time.
“Do it… for me, son…” Kayrin said softly, his voice calm.
With his eyes wide with horror, Talrin sank the dagger deep into Kayrin’s chest, sliding the metal into the man’s very heart. His father stiffened slightly, his eyes going wide as if in surprise. His deep purple eyes then locked with Talrin’s, and the hand against his cheek trembled,
“I’m… proud… of… you, son… I… lo... “ Kayrin said, unable to continue. His voice no more than a whisper before his eyes closed and he fell limp, his hand falling from his son’s face.
Talrin remained where he was, staring down at his father’s body, his last words ringing around in his head. His numb fingers slid from the handle, leaving it embedded in his father’s chest. He suddenly pulled the body of his father close, burying his face in his hair as he cried, his heart-wrenched sobs softly filling the room as he cried out his grief over the body of his dead father.
Talrin didn’t know how long he had been there, and nor did he care. He was unable to pull himself away, wanting to hold his father like this forever, wishing he could bring him back to life. To see his smile, to hear his voice and his cheery laugh. Memories filled his mind of the happy times that he had spent with his father, and his family in times passed. His eyes clenched even more, his tears leaking from his eyes as his entire body wrenched with his overwhelming grief.
Finally, the tears could flow no longer but he now felt as hollow and empty as Kayrin’s eyes. He took hold of the dagger, pulling it from his father’s chest. The once clean blade was now dripping with blood. Automatically, Talrin pulled a cloth from his pocket and he cleaned it, however he still saw the blood staining the blade and he knew that it would forever be like that to him. A constant, cruel reminded of what he had been forced to do. Tearing his eyes away from it, he put it back inside of his cloak, hiding it from view. He then pulled something out from his cloak; a red crystal. He placed it on his father’s chest, pouring his energy into the crystal. It glowed brightly, before his father’s body went black, before it dissolved into a dust, causing his gauntlet’s to clatter to the floor. Talrin put the crystal away, before pulling out a small black bag, which he placed the Gauntlets inside of. He then pulled a stone urn from his pocket and gathered up all of the ash and placed it inside of the urn before putting it away in his pocket. Talrin used his telekinesis to make sure that not one speck of dust remained. He then stood up, looking down at the blood on the floor.
Then without a backwards glance, he went to the door and opened it up. To his irritation, he found Xarmuhm outside, waiting for him. The Daedric General stared at him,
“Well? Have fun?” He asked, rubbing his hands together in an almost greedy way. Talrin suppressed his disgust,
“Yes. Up until the point where he tried to attack me. I defended myself, but the only thing I could do was kill him.” Talrin said with a shrug. Xarmuhm’s eyes bulged, “WHAT!?” He demanded angrily, before rushing into the cell. He let out an angry roar,
“WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS!? HE WAS TO BE MY FAVOURITE TOY!” Xarmuhm demanded angrily.
“I’m sure you can find other play things.” Talrin said coldly before he walked off, with Xarmuhm’s angry shouting following him. The only good thing about this whole situation, was the satisfaction that he had caused distress to the Daedric General of Anguish.
When he was nine-hundred years of age, he had managed to trick the Daedric General of Lust, Eshanae, into the Overworld. Using the artefact that swapped minds, he was able to plant Lusravana into Eshanae’s body. He also made similar genetic changes to her body, giving her an Eldyrannth brain, sexual organs and eggs that hold Lusravana’s genes.
Once the process was complete, he took Lusravana, now Eshanae, back into the Daedric Realm so that she could immerse herself in her role as the Daedric General of Lust. A role she was remarkably suited to, due to her rather vast sexual appetite. The two of them continued to work quietly within the background, gently manipulating other Daedra down paths that they set for them, as part of a long-term plan. As it was only the two of them, they could not simply challenge the current Generals and the King of Hell, Lucifer. They had to ensure that they had enough recognition and respect of the Daedra to follow the changeover of leadership without much protest. And to do that, they had to play an elaborate game of politics to manipulate public opinions.
When Talrin was almost a thousand, Lucifer demanded for him to find a way to bypass the Eldyrannth seal and to lead an army against the Eldyrannth. At this point in time, Talrin had not yet secured himself completely within his role, and there was no deft way in which he could avoid this. So he had to do as he was ordered. He had come across the Eldyrannth Seal during his studies. It had not made much sense then, but it did now with his new abilities. He was able to open it up carefully enough to bring an army through. The only thing he was able to do, is manipulate the size of the army so that it was not enough to bring down the Eldyrannth.
He took the army, and lead them to Vorserend to attack. He did not hide the fact that he had his Eldyr form, because it was heavily warped by the Daedric influence of his new body and thus he appeared more Daedric than Eldyr. He fought against two Eldyrannth; Lusravana’s parents, Kalrin and Haelavana. He did not want to hurt them, let alone kill them. He had spilt enough Eldyrannth blood with his father. He allowed himself to be defeated by them, as the Daedric army was easily slaughtered. When he returned to the Daedric Realm, Lucifer demanded that he take more Daedra along with other Daedric Generals to try and destroy the city and its people. With no choice, Diomedes had to obey.
This time, Kalrin and Haelavana were occupied with the other Daedric Generals, leaving Diomedes to move about the battlefield and manipulate it in such a way that it advantaged the Eldyrannth. But he had to be subtle enough to not be noticed by either side. During that battle, Diomedes suddenly found himself face to face with his twin sister, whom did not know it was her brother that stood before her. It was then that he finally saw the Xician Entities. They surrounded Talivana; unseen by all but him. They looked like a cloud of black fog that seemed to boil around them. In the centre, was what appeared to be a bone chest, with a black heart held within with black veins that wrapped like vines around the bones. There was also a sickly white skull above the chest, with black eyes that glittered maliciously. The sight of them sent a chill through Diomedes, and his instinct was to try and protect Talivana. He tried to convince her to come with him, back into the Daedric Realm. However, she refused adamantly. He told her that it was him that had killed her father, Kayrin. He knew that it might make it harder to take her back to the Daedric Realm, but he felt that it was important that she knew what had happened to him. He continued to try and persuade her, but she remained firm. Growing frustrated with her refusal, he struck her down, intending to take her back by force. However, Zhalrin, Lusravana’s twin brother, leapt to Talivana’s defense and fought against a reluctant Diomedes. Finally, Diomedes retreated, moving to the back of the battle to direct it from behind. The other Daedric Generals had fallen, leaving just him and the remaining Daedric forces. The war waged on for a hundred years, before the Daedra were slaughtered, save for Diomedes. He returned to Lucifer, informing the King of the failure and the diminishing of the army. Lucifer was enraged, but Diomedes was able to lay the blame solely on the Generals that died. He was the General of Time and Dimension. His only responsibility was to maintain the link between the Universes.
After that, he was able to continue on with his espionage. He studied and researched as much as he could, trying to get as much information on the Daedra as possible. Anything to try and help bring them down (Details left out due to plots/details subject to change). He and Eshanae continued to manipulate the other Daedra, slowly pushing them into the direction that they wanted. Every now and again, Diomedes left the Daedric Realm to wander about on Earth, as well as the rest of the Universe. He kept an eye on the Eldyrannth, and their continued fight with the Daedra, but he didn’t interfere. He kept an especially close eye on Talivana and her mysterious stalkers. They did not seem to be making aggressive moves, so he was able to study them and to try and figure out what they were. They were unlike any being he had ever encountered but that didn’t deter him from wanting to protect his sister.
During his travels throughout the Universe, he came across a planet; Solitude. It was massive; about eight times the size of Earth. It had three moons, and was surrounded by a red and gold rings. It was beautiful. And unoccupied, for the most part. There was a single structure on the entire planet. A medieval-appearing stone keep. For the most part, it looked to be built by medieval humans, which was a source of interest for Talrin but it was completely empty. He might have left to study it later, however he came across a strange crystal that was exotic in nature. He kept returning to the keep, studying it each time until he was finally able to crack t
