Empress Qira Starwhisper
The Starwhispers distant cousins of the Imperial Redmoon family. They are descended of elves, dragons and humans. Though the bloodlines have been greatly diluted, some innate magic remains in the family. These often result in pleasing features and extended lifespan of the royal family. The Empress possesses the rare features of black hair and gold eyes with skin fair, like the moon.
Quira Starwhisper was a cousin of Emperor Tristan Redmoon. She spent much of her life as a dedicated cleric of the pantheon before the deaths of several nobles at the conclusion of the Northern war resulted in her coronation. Her education and innate diplomatic skill made her hugely popular in the Empire for the short time she was on the throne.
Shortly after the death of her cousins following the Northern war, the Empress was coronated and enacted the will of her dead uncle. She set up a parliament consisting of elected officials and nobles to govern the affairs of the Empire. Within a year, she had drafted several legions and disappeared with her army and the third Imperial fleet. There has been no word of her for nearly a year and it is believed that her location is known only to the Archdukes.
