Character Sheet – Iv’adhun
Character’s full name:
Reason or meaning of name:
It’s a name given to Iv’adhun during a time when he was involved in a tribal troll RP group, where he was regarded as a loa by that name. Funnily, in Gujarati, it also means ‘Modern Eve’ which I think is just neat.
Reason for nickname:
Shorter than Iv’adhun
Technically it’s a narrative hook I use often that he has tens of thousands of journals that he’s written IC, and some of that number are scattered through the world being used for various things.
(I don’t use much Social Media)

How other characters will be affected:
That depends entirely on the nature of the interaction and the storylines active at the time.
Type of childhood:
He was born the runt of his litter, deemed too frail to be worth any time and abandoned by his mother and most of his siblings at a young age for it. His only friend and mentor was his brother, Chasdormu, who raised and trained him with a strong sense of duty into one of the premier warriors of his flight.
A scorpid named Gin.
Watching his mother leave him in a cave, too starved to crawl out on his own, knowing it would not be long before the sands buried him there. Feeling fear and hopelessness for the first time of his life.
Most important childhood memory:
That would be when his brother, Chasdormu, dragged him out of that cave and named him Orodormu. When asked why, all he said was it’s his ‘Duty’.
It instilled a powerful mindset in Iv, that duty isn’t what others expect of you but what you expect of yourself and that makes it the most powerful thing in his life, although it took too long for him to fully learn that himself.
