Faeril Munlear is a Sith Warrior of Clan Naga Sadow. She is currently serving as Quaestor to House Ludo Kressh of Clan Naga Sadow. She is a spirited individual that strives to further her knowledge and accomplishments in any way she can. She had traced the edge of the dark side before joining the Brotherhood, but never fully delved in until her recruitment into the DJB and Clan Naga Sadow by Sith Battlemaster Shikyo Keibatsu who took her under his wing and would later become her master. Never one to stay stagnant, Faeril is always searching for further ways to push herself to her limits. She also carries this through to her sister who she recruited to the Brotherhood not to long after she herself had become a Journeyman.
Childhood & Parents
Faeril Munlear was born to Ivonne Bel'enge and Toumas Munlear on a planet located in the unknown regions. Two years later, her mother gave birth to her sister Naiia. Their mother passed away soon after due to complications from child birth. After their mother's death, their father raised them as a single parent. He had served in one of the previous wars on their world and had never quite been the same. Her and Naiia's childhood wasn't so bad however, though there were hard times when their father would have flashbacks to the war.
Faeril always had an adventure for exploring as well as fighting. She was skilled in the art of throwing shuriken starting from a young age. Her father had begun teaching her around the age of 5 or 6 and would have her practice against a piece of large wood with a target drawn on it before giving her more movable targets. She relished the time she got to spend with her father. He taught her many skills that normal girls her age had no interest in. This included handling weapons, and activities such as fishing and hunting, but his main interest was experimenting with chemicals and other tests in order to create better, stronger weapons.
At the age of 9, her father was having one of his psychotic phases of inspirations that he had from time to time. Though flashing back to the war was norm, in this state he would also have some insightful spurts of geniusness. This time he was diligently mixing substances. After his hypothesis and his experiment was set for testing, he mixed some of the wrong chemicals causing an explosion in his laboratory. Faeril had feared that this would one day happen.
Her father, though quite smart, would hallucinate and get the chemicals and ingredients mixed up. Toumas would also sometimes think there was fire where there wasn't. Her and Naiia would never know the actual details, but she had a strong feeling that had somehow warned her of the events before it happened. She dragged her sister out of the lab only moments before the explosion happened. In the end, it wasn't even the explosion that had killed their father, but shrapnel that had broke off from some pieces of metal their father had been working with that embedded forcefully in various areas of his body.
With both of her parents passed away, Nanna, a close family friend took her and her sister in. There they lived a bit of a different life than the one they had with their mother and father. Nanna taught her and Naiia the arts of covertcy. They were both taught to observe their surroundings, even the smallest details and to remember as much as they could. They would play games to help strengthen and exercise their memory.
Always competitive, Faeril continued to hone her skills as she got older and sought the knowledge of learning how to use other weapons including the katana. At the same time, Nanna continued to educate her and her sister in various languages and histories of different cultures throughout their planet and beyond. Whereas her father had taught her basic skills with weapons, Nanna taught her and Naiia the skills that could be used in politics or the game of houses. All of these skills were sometimes essential to survival as well as piecing together complex puzzles.
If things had turned out differently and her father hadn't passed away, Faeril probably would have grown up very much a tomboy. Courtesans were held in high regard in their society, seeing this as yet another bit of knowledge that could help during intrique, Nanna sent Faeril to study at one of the houses as Nanna herself had done when she was younger. Unlike Nanna, however, Faeril never became a full courtesan, but she was still educated in the art of seduction and other etiquette which she found could be very useful in conjunction with everything else she has been learning.
Around this time, Naiia decided to run off on her own agenda. Faeril was worried for her baby sister, but knew she could handle herself. She wasn't very pleased though that all she left was a short note and didn't say goodbye in person, but maybe Naiia had felt it was easiest that way.
Search for Her Sister
Several years later, Faeril set out to look for her sister. She missed her and had been contemplating looking for her for some time. After saying her goodbyes to Nanna, she set out on her own for the first time. She traveled various places within her planet before deciding that Naiia may have caught a ship and ventured out farther in the galaxy.
Faeril had searched the landing pads and for some reason was drawn to a Sith Infiltrator. It had landed days earlier and would be setting off for flight within the next week. She bided her time until then. Not having enough money to buy passage on a vessel she decided to stealthily sneak aboard the Sith Infiltrator as they were preparing to launch.
It wasn't long before she was discovered. The owner of the vessel was Shikyo Keibatsu, a Sith Battlemaster. She thought surely he would punish her or report her to authorities, but instead he seemed intrigued by her. After capturing her, and her agreeing to not cause any more resistance, he released her and allowed her to roam freely about his ship. He kept a close eye on her however and questioned her. He wanted to take her back to the Dark Brotherhood with him and encouraged her to train there.
She was still on a quest to find her missing sister, but she may run across her sister at the Brotherhood for all she knew. Plus, she had felt something pulling her towards boarding the Sith Infiltrator over the other ships that had been docked. Maybe there was a reason she had crossed paths with the Keibatsu. Faeril had been letting her intuition guide her for most of her life, and didn't see why she would choose to do differently this time.
After reaching the Brotherhood, Faeril was welcomed into Clan Naga Sadow and integrated into House Marka Ragnos. Joining at the end of the 8th Great Jedi War, she helped where she could to excel her Clan during their fight against the Yuuzhan Vong.
Once she completed her trials and reached the rank of Acolyte, Shikyo took her on as his Apprentice training her diligently and pushing her to realize her capacity with the dark side of the force.
As Protector, she helped lead the Night Hawks with Co-Battleteam Leader Nero Pennant and shortly after was promoted to Jedi Hunter and transferred to House Ludo Kressh to take on the position of House Envoy and Tetrarch of the training batteteam the Jade Serpents.
Being raised by a father with the knack for experimenting, she was always curious with discovering new methods and techniques to create things. This curiousness drew her to Sith Alchemy.
Not being able to study under a master just yet, she chose to broaden her knowledge through taking the course at the Shadow Academy and soon become Eclectic Pedagogue of the Sith Alchemy class teaching other students the basics of Sith Alchemy.
- "Sith Alchemy in itself is an art, creating and manipulating objects and life to create new substances and species. It's challenging and exhilarating to experiment in various ways in order to create new objects that can help the Dark Side as well as strengthening one's own dark power. One can strive to make a species better and stronger to benefit their own agenda while also heightening their own defenses. The process can be dirty at times, but it is worth the cost."
- ―Faeril's thoughts on Sith Alchemy
Faeril was given a chance to embrace the ideology of the Sith even more when she accompanied her Master Shikyo, Macron Keibatsu, Sai Keibatsu on a trip to the planet Thule and the Capital City Hurom.
