Niven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious Superhero
Niven Soleil


  • Syl'rosian elf

  • 92 Eras


To find where she is currently, check the list of threads below.

Physical Description:

Approximately 5'5", Niven is above average size for a Syl'rosian female. Her attractive face is framed by long blond hair. Her piercing green eyes capture attention and often can seem to see through people. She's quite slender and tends to seem as if she's floating, rather than walking.


Niven's normally worn clothing is a long dress. Her dresses consist of a long wine coloured dress and a brown dress, normally worn in the colder months. Niven also has a green travel dress and three fancier dresses, a blue, a green, and an eggplant coloured one. She also has a pair of green trousers, white chemise, and brown vest


Niven has gone through a dramatic personality shift in the past eras. Once, Niven could be described as a firecracker. She had a lot of energy and fire that people often get swept up in and made her easily likeable. After a series of significant losses in her life, the elfess is now more tempered and mellow, though no less likeable. No longer impulsively jumping into situations, she takes the time to assess the situation and consider all her options, including the one that has her walking away and not getting further involved. This new take on life has made her seem much wiser than her young eras usually would become. Her devotion to those she loves and cares for has not wavered and she will quickly come to the defence of anyone she feels a kinship with. She is wholeheartedly devoted to her goddess, Carmelya, and credits her to being the reason she still lives and breathes. And while she doesn't believe in grudges and has few enemies, she does have a deep loathing for the planetar Xenarius.

Major Possessions:

  • Juno: Dog, Cross between a Sylrosian Tracker and an Aelyrian Hunter
  • Trigg: Horse, Juanerro, Brown

Parent/Guardian of:

Special Personal Relationships:

  • Engaged to Dante Asunder - 8th of Tempris Era XVIII
  • Married to Dante Asunder - 15th of Imperios, Era XXIV
  • Separated from Dante Asunder - Winter Era XXV


While her mother was pregnant, Niven's father, Carnesîr Soleil, died in a tragic hunting accident. With no means to support herself, Niven's mother, Isilrá, moved in with her sister and her family. Niven's aunt and uncle became like parents to her and Niven never felt wanting for other siblings as she grew up close to her cousins and they became surrogate siblings.

As a young girl, she and her cousins (Eltaor, Cymbiir, Maeralya, Séonais, and Wyn) would often play a 'damsel in distress' game and, unlike her female cousins, Niven always wanted to be the one rescuing rather than being rescued. She had more fun playing with the boys than she ever did with the girls, and therefore was taught many skills that most Syl'rosian women aren't taught. Though very pretty, Niven had little interest in boys as mates as most of them were her friends.

When she became an adult, as much as she loved her family she felt that she needed to get out on her own and make a life for herself. The idea of adventure appealed to her and she imagined the Aelyrian Empire would not disappoint.

The Basics
Secrets :

1. What is your full name? Niven Soleil.

2. Where and when were you born? Glenvale Village, Sylrosian Valley, Pre-Fractum

3. Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.) Father: Carnesîr Soleil, Hunter. He was a good man, loving towards his wife and looked forward to their expanding family. He was always the protector, firm yet still kind. Died tragically in a hunting accident before the birth of his only daughter.
Mother: Isilrá, Homemaker. She loves and lives for her family. Is very strong willed and tends to press her opinions onto her only offspring.

4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?
No. My father died while my mother was carrying me and she never remarried. However, my mother moved in with her sister, my aunt, and brother-in-law, my uncle, and their children became like siblings to me.

5. Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people.
I currently reside with the Alyxanda/Siluvanade family.

6. What is your occupation? No current occupation. I used to travel a lot, and got involved in a few adventures which turned out to be fairly lucrative.

7. Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks.
I am 5'5'' Syl'rosian elf and I weigh approximately 100 lbs. I have jade coloured eyes and my hair is down to my rear and blond, with subtle natural highlights. I normally wear it down around my shoulders, but for special occasions I put it up. I have a small scar on my hand from a sparring mishap. I usually wear a mix of dresses and trousers with a chemise.

8. To which social class do you belong? I would say middle class.

9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? No

10. Are you right- or left-handed? Right

11. What does your voice sound like?
Soft and sweet.

12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?
Nothing comes to mind.

13. What do you have in your pockets? No pockets.

14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?
I am not fond of cats. They're shifty eyes and odd mannerisms give me the heebie jeebies.

Growing Up

Secrets :

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? I enjoyed my childhood immensely

16. What is your earliest memory?
Running after my male cousins, hoping they'd play with me.

17. How much schooling have you had?

18. Did you enjoy school? Very much.

19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities?
My cousins taught me survival skills and how to use my father's bow. Dante Asunder taught me how to use the dagger I acquired. My mother attempted to teach me how to cook, but the only thing I can make with great success is stew. Liahal unbound me to druidism in the Principality of Moonstone.

20. While growing up, did you have any role models? My mother, aunt, uncle and older cousins.

21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? Very well with my male cousins. My female cousins didn't tend to like the fact that I was into the more boyish things.

22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A legionnaire.

23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? Learning how to use my bow and rescuing my female cousins when playing Damsel in Distress.

24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?
I was aggressive, but not in a bad way. I tended to lean more towards boyish activities than learning about how to be a wife and a mother.

25. As a child, were you popular?
I don't know if I'd say I was popular. The children in the villiage I lived in all played together, as there were not too too many of us.

26. When and with whom was your first kiss? Dante Asunder and it was on the 32nd of Tempris Era XVII.

27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?
No. I lost my virginity to Calanon Siluvanade in the forest in Maeve, just outside of Port Alyxandrya in Era XXIV.

28. If you are a supernatural being (i.e. mage, werewolf, vampire), tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities.
I'm not a supernatural being

Past Influences

Secrets :

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? Leaving the safety of the Sylrosian Forest.
It changed the course of my life forever.

30. Who has had the most influence on you?
In a strange way, my father. I am his only child and always hope I am making him proud.

To date, getting back alive from Jaedaxia after being attacked by the Thorns a few times.

I don't think there's anything evil that I've done.

34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? No

35. When was the time you were the most frightened?
It's a toss up between when I found out that Dante was going off to kill the succumbus and when I thought he was going to die after rescuing Jar from a gang.

36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you?
Um, maybe we won't share that just yet...

37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? My father's accident. However, without that, I would probably be a much different person today and would probably not be in the great place I am today.

38. What is your best memory? The day my mother gave me my father's bow

Need I say it again?

Notable People

Dante Asunder is Niven's ex-husband. Niven and Dante were together for 8 years and married for a matter of months when everything fell apart. Turns out that getting pregnant with another man's babies before your wedding when your husband is a Thaumaturge Dracon ends your marriage. Who knew?

Calanon and Niven had only met less than a handful of times before they came across each other in a forest and, with the help of a love potion, canoodled in the moonslight. They both thought the darkening was a dream, but it turned out to have lasting consequences. It turned out that the babies Niven got pregnant with were Calanon's. Now things are super awkward as they try to figure out how to navigate a friendship at the same time they are co-parenting.

Kailin is Niven's best friend and confident. The two originally met in a strange but vivid dream and were shocked to find each other were both real one winter. They became fast friends. When Dante turned her out seven months pregnant, Kailin took her in and put her up in her family home, even though it was her beau whose babies Niven was carrying. Through all the trials and tribulations of the strange situation, Kailin has been an amazing support for Niven and she loves her to bits.

Niven and Tali had a history before they even realized it, with Tali gifting Niven and Cal's babies toys when she first met Cal. It was months later when the two met themselves and Niven felt an odd sort of kinship for the amnesiac elfess when she shared her story. Niven looks forward to building her relationship with the auburn-haired shadow elf.
