Helveca, the Illuminated


Previous Mates

By Spassow

"There are some who remember the Old Master, and they tend to do so fondly. Most now only know the glittering bastion of knowledge that is Helveca. Her heavy tomes can deliver more than just wrote learning, as any bruised ill-behaved young dragon can tell you."
- Tephra, the Scholar

Gleaming Manuscripts

Infested Light
Helveca's own history is the one history she does not comment on, though she is studied in many others, having traveled the world over before coming to settle in the Scarred Wasteland. It is unknown precisely why she came to settle in the lands of the Plaguebringer. However, she did come to Minstri's clan just as the two flights were becoming embroiled in a historic battle for dominance. Her successor led the Exalted from the clan himself during that event, and the Clan was in need of a new teacher. Tephra served in the interim, but he has a soft disposition and is not terribly skilled in thorough explanation and discipline while outside his Library.

But Helveca claimed the Queen's favor during the conflict and secured the position shortly after it died down. The stern nocturne had become fond of her new home.

All that is known about Helveca is that she harbors some strange dislike, bordering on a cold hatred for most dragons of Light, what dark task was done on behalf of the Blood Queen is known only by Helveca and the Queen Herself.

Though usually stern, and rather aloof, Helveca's disposition is warm towards Bard, whose compositions never fail to please her. With the departure of Altin, with whom she had maintained a formal courtship, she immediately went to Bard. It is suspected then the two were close long before then.
But her time with Bard was not sustainable, and the returned to more formal courtship and mate selection after a short while, with Ciro, then Michaelis when the old Master of Ceremonies departed the clan. It seems the Wildclaw was unable to maintain her favor for long after that, and while she remains fond of him, they are no longer so close. Perhaps the bard's wilder ways, while enticing, could never have truly been for her.

Helveca dislikes Susan deeply, and because of this, she has very little favor from the King. Sovri does not involve her in any of his scholarly pursuits, as he does most other learned dragons within the clan.


As the Leader of Learning, Helveca keeps a great many textbooks within the clan's Library.
