Shevanya Arclis is a Aelf explorer and scholar, who some call a Tomb Raider. [1]


She is tall and fair skinned with russet coloured hair, one side of her face has burn scars, from her chin to just beneath her green eyes. [1d]


Shev grew up in Excelsis and spent a lot of time on the streets, running with a “bad crowd” and learning how to pickpocket, working in the Square of Prophets. [1e]

She was employed by the Golden Lord to lead him to ruins of Quatzhymos, the library city in the jungles of the Taloncoast, said to be the final resting place of Occlesius of Asciltane, the Realm-Walker. [1a] Despite the presence of a large Orruk horde in the ruins, she led her patron to his tomb [1b] but curious, she extracted his false eye and found his soul was still held within it and could talk to her. Concerned about the nature and intentions of the Golden Lord she fled. [1c]

Shev ran into Hanniver Toll, Armand Callis and Arika Zenthe and her corsairs who were seeking Vermyre and a three way fight erupted between the two groups and the orruks. Eventually they retreated with her back to Zenthe’s ship, the Thrice Lucky. [1d] They sailed to Bilgeport, surviving encounters with a massive ghyreshark and Khorne worshipping raiders. [1] There she was captured by the High Captains and given to Ortam Vermyre who needed the information that only Occlesius could give. [1f]

She, Vermyre and his tzaangor allies travelled on a red arrow shaped crystal ship [1f] to the lost city of Xoantica in the Fatescar Mountains [1f] where there would be a final confrontation with Toll and also the ancient custodians of the city. [1]

On her return to Excelsis she and Armand Callis became lovers for a few months before she joined an expedition seeking the Seeing-Stones of Prensis and was considering seeking the Seven Tombs of the Ulkirian Faroahs that her adoptive father had researched. [1g]
