Enna of the foe-mark
Guardian of the White Way
The harrying of arrows
Stalker of the dark
Enna is a member of the Dunai guard from the Deepingdale.
Loyal to the Eldarin Noble house of Tyrthym, the Elven Dunai protect the White Path, a secret place where the Forest of Cormanthyr touches the Feywild and men and monsters can pass freely without the aid of ritual. The House of Tyrthym use the White Path as a back way into the world from the deeper Wild. But they fear that armies of monsters and men might pass the other way and must ensure the route remains concealed from non-fey.
A young captain of the guard, Enna left Deepingdale to track a human named Boreas who is believed to know the secret of the White Way. Boreas found his way into the Feywild and the Blue Court of Tyrthym before eloping with a girl from one of the great families. Enna has traveled far while hunting them and on several occasions came close to finding the couple. However, the triune goddess Angharradh has intervened with signs and wonders, diverting her to another path, albeit one whose purpose and direction are unclear.
Enna carries the favour of the Lady of the Seven-Marked-Leaves, who is also her sponsor at the Blue Court.
The Folded Rider is infatuated with Enna after they fought together at Daggerdale. However, the disfigured paladin’s love goes unrequited.
The Two Cruel Ones are known to have escaped Hell and plan to inflict a terrible punishment upon Enna for their deaths at her hands.
Enna is, in elven speech, Telcoer, a ‘stern one’. Patient and implacable, she does not seem to possess the mercurial spirit or great passions of the wood elf. She rarely laughs or expresses joy. This ‘grey mark’ stands her out from other elves and amongst her people she is an intimidating presence.
Only the Eldarin do not regard Enna so coldly. To the Lady of the Seven-Marked-Leaves she is like silver, loved for her beauty and purity. She is being refined by The Blue Court—a process of training and development that will transform her into the ‘Weapon Without Answer’, a work of martial art. Insensible to this intrigue, Enna does not realize that she is being manipulated.
Enna is a devout acolyte of Angharradh, possessing a strong ascetic streak. She is highly deferential to the noble Eldarin, particularly those of the House of Tyrthym. And though she does not express great passions she is bound heart and soul to her sponsor, Lady Arisal of the Seven-Marked-Leaves, whom she loves beyond measure.
Though suspicious of outsiders, in matters of fey politics Enna is quite guileless and therefore easily led. She is being used as a weapon but does not comprehend this.
Enna’s deference to her Eladrin masters is total. She is a servant who may be persuaded to do questionable things without resistance. However, she is Good-aligned and may have a crisis if forced to do something deeply against her principles.
In ambush Enna can be still as a stone, but in battle she stays highly mobile, skipping and dancing across the field, ever-searching for a clear shot.
DEEP BACKGROUND (Meta Note: Player characters may not be aware of this background)
THE BLUE COURT
The Eladrin Noble House of Tyrthim have their citadel, Selanestra, in the Feywild in a location parallel to Deepingdale.
The White Path is a fey crossing that leads direct to the citadel. It manifests as a crack in a great stone in the Forest of Cormanthyr, but at dusk each night the crack splits open to create a portal to the Feywild wide enough for an army to march five abreast. It leads to the undefended rear of the Selanestra citadel.
The House of Tyrthim have known of this pathway for several decades, using it to pass between the mortal world and the Feywild at their convenience. But they fear the secret way will be found and rivals or armies of men will use it to attack them. They have recruited a band of elven rangers, the Dunai, to guard the White Way for them and keep it secret.
The House of Tyrthim style themselves as the ‘Blue Court’, but their citadel is a tumbledown place, partly reclaimed by nature. It once held a host 4,000 strong but now maybe a quarter that number walk the echoed halls. Beneath the great crystal ceiling is an eternal half-light, and the hush that comes just after sunset.
Selanestra is the home of Lady Héra, ageless head of the Blue Court and archfey of Twilight. She is an ally of the Gloaming Fey at the Star Court, where her younger sister, The Maiden of the Moon, often speaks for the Tyrthim. However, in recent years Lady Héra has become detached from everyday affairs, preferring to live a dreamlike existence in the Moon Tower at the centre of the citadel.
Her withdrawal from the world has created a vacuum that lesser nobles have tried to fill, jockeying for position and power. One such noble intriguer is Lady Arisal of the Seven-Marked-Leaves, who is Enna’s sponsor at the court and who favours a policy of splendid isolation. Another is Lord Tymril, a skilled diplomat who seeks alliances abroad.
Devoid of clear leadership, The Blue Court is in great peril. Nachtur, the kingdom of goblins, raids the citadel from time to time, though as yet the hobgoblin wizard The Great Gark has not yet turned his eye, or his full strength, against Selanestra. Now the spider goddess Lolth appears to have taken an interest in the citadel. There are too few eladrin warriors to hold the entire length of the walls and increasingly the elven Dunai of the Dalelands have been recruited to fill the gaps. More worryingly, since Lady Héra retired to her tower few eladrin children have been born. No one knows why this is, but the result is that the numbers living at the court are gently dwindling year-on-year.
Eruwen is a young eladrin woman and lesser noble of the House of Tyrthim. She is a former handmaiden to Lady Héra and a cousin to Lady Arisal. Just over two years ago she ran away from the Blue Court with a young human named Boreas. Why she did so is unclear. However, it is rumoured that Lord Tymril may have encouraged the elopement, though for what reason is not known.
