Ruya Iagan t'Dagrun of House Cannith
  • Race: Human
  • Class: Wizard
  • Nickname: Ruya
  • Country/Region of Origin: Ruya considers herself a resident of Xen'drik, though was born in Sharn
  • Profession: Sage, scribe


Ruya is the daughter of a nobleman sage attached to Morgrave university and a lady of House Cannith. Her mother (Ausra Dagrun) was killed when Ruya was eight when a magical experiment went horribly wrong. Her father (Baruti Iagan) then took Ruya with him to Xen'drick to act as his assistant. She basically grew up in the library and his small museum, and learned her first magical spell (Prestidigitation) when she was ten. After proudly demonstrating her new found ability to her father (by setting his mustache on fire), she was given greater library access.
Ruya made a habit of running errands or acting as a scribe/secretary for visiting wizards and her father's friends in exchange for them teaching her a trick or two or imparting a bit of wisdom. Her spell component pouch was a gift from one of the select wizards with whom she had a bit closer of a relationship. Her rather ornate masterwork dagger was a gift from a wizard she was temporarily engaged to, but he ended up falling in love with someone else. Ruya doesn't bear them (much) ill-will and keeps in touch with them both, even sending them a gift for their newborn child.
Perhaps due to having grown up in Xen'drik, or her own respect for those that make their way through cunning, or even her desire to travel, whether it be physically or through books, Ruya carries with her a holy symbol of The Traveller, though otherwise she makes offerings to the Sovereign Host as the need strikes her.


Ruya is a small woman, barely 4'10" in height, with long black hair and piercing green eyes. She is dressed in an off the shoulder red silk full-length chemise, over which she wears a crimson glyph-etched leather bodice and a full length hooded silver-threaded black silk cloak. Around her waist she wears a rune-embroidered black and silver velvet sash from which hangs a rune-embroidered suede component pouch and a strand of rune-carved blood red jade beads. She wears a pair of heeled, knee-high black dragonhide boots that bring her up to about five feet in height. On her left hand she has a coiled opal-eyed serpent ring and on her right hand she wears a ruby-eyed black opal ouroboros band. Her arms are covered by shadowy serpentine opal inlaid silver bracers, and she wears a circlet of braided silver serpents, with opal and ruby eyes. When circumstances force her to be more discreet, she dresses in supple brown leather breeches and a loose black spidersilk blouse or a lily clasped golden silk sari. Those who get to know her well may be acquainted with the stylized serpent tattoos on her back and right thigh.


Ruya tends a bit to the flamboyant, though she can be as studious as she needs to be. Having lived in Xen'drick most of her life, she is fairly open-minded and used to seeing odd things. Though not shy, she is versed in the art of being discreet, mostly to prevent her father from finding out some of the things she gets up to and thus visiting upon her that horror of a punishment, temporary exile from his private library.
Events of the past two years have made her less patient than she used to be, and more of a woman of action.
