Atop the Shoulders of Giants
Royal Steward of Keland
In her Draconic form Tidiolkras has been described as “elegant” and “powerful.” However she rarely takes this form, preferring her mutable humanoid form which she is known to alter somewhat regularly like an ever-changing work of art. Her changes, which tend to occur once every month or two, have become slowly more and more uncanny over the years. Her most consistent features of late have been very flat ears, sharply pointed nose, solid-colored eyes, very long hair, and incredibly narrow proportions between height and width.
Several members of the Keland court have described Tidiolras’ humanoid form as disturbing or unsettling – an impression that is rarely aided by her demeanor. Still, she has a tenancy to change her form to compliment new outfits and jewelry in a way that can only be described as artistic – whether or not one finds the art to be to their tastes.
Tidiolkras and her sister Mestaloxram have been attached to the courts of Keland since the time of the planar war. As two of the children of the villain Yurikamilish, they were adopted by King Saul Elward the first, and unlike their siblings made a very permanent home out of Keland.
Tidiolkras spent the majority of her cousin Saul Elward II’s reign learning the particulars of diplomacy and management, and when his son Nathanial the Just became High King of the Holy States, she was appointed as Royal Steward of Keland, to rule as his representative. Mestaloxram, on the other hand, has served for over a century as the royal seamstress and is commissioned regularly for new outfits and paintings now that Tidiolkras holds the position of Royal Steward.
Demeanor and Personal Relations
Though those who have known Tidiolkras for a long time generally attest to the fact that she is a passionate and empathic woman, her demeanor does not generally communicate this fact to strangers. For whatever reasons, Tidiolkras has a famous inability to properly express emotions in either body language or vocal tone, making her often seem callous and removed to those who have not become accustomed to her.
