Dame/Sir, the Candle of Hope Mykola Voidwalker, DoR (Defender of the Realm), Knight of the Order of the Light Bearers, Princess of Positivity and Self-Encouragement (a.k.a. Myko, Kola, Void)

Mykola Void is the Archon (Leader) of House Ailurus. Although this was unknown when she first appeared on the literopolitical scene, she has since been acknowledged as the eldest daughter of Sable Aradia and Erin Righ. She is a 29 year old werepanda who shapeshifts into a red panda. "Myko" has received the special titles "The Candle of Hope" and "the Princess of Positivity" from the Chaos Cartel for her constant words of encouragement and inspiration.

Mykola Void and her sister Senna Nightshade were created with gametes stolen from Queen Sable and Erin Righ by The Company. When the Mother of Bunnies used her own DNA as a magical focus to find other "Company experiments," this led her to the two scions of House Ailurus. They have since made the mutual decision to acknowledge the relationship publicly, despite potential political ramifications. Several Company employees are facing charges in the International Criminal Court, for this and other reasons.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

Mykola is chronically ill, this however does not stop her from enjoying life and partaking in as much as she can. She has suffered from liver issues from birth.

Special abilities

Mykola, like her mother, is Voidtouched. She seems to have an affinity with a previously unknown layer of The Void, and the full extent of her abilities is only beginning to be explored. This is believed to be the reason she and Feral Foxx managed to escape the pursuing Horde, and is thought to have been some kind of limited teleport ability in action.

Apparel & Accessories

While her style varies to almost everything under the sun, she tends to favor a scented lava rock necklace, sun and moon earrings given to her by her younger sister, and jewelry she made herself.

Specialized Equipment

Mykola is known to carry a large purse or messenger bag that is usually full notebooks and pens, most of which have very few blank pages at any given time.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Mykola was discovered after being observed performing Literomancy by one of King RPGDinosaurBob's Dinos. They approached her eventually and took her in to teach her. Under their care and teachings she quickly learned a great deal about the art and her particular skill set. Despite their kindness and acceptance though, Mykola never truly felt that she belonged in the house of dinosaurs.   The April Tourney of Tales was her debut event; something she decided to take part in due to the encouragement of the Dinos, especially the King Dino himself. During the event, Mykola decided to share a tradition of hers with all of the Tome Knights -- daily affirmations and motivational quotes she adds to with her own thoughts and understandings. She expected to blend into the background and remain mostly unnoticed. However, that was happily not the case, as she made several good friends through several Houses. She used it as an opportunity to grow into herself more, as well as to bring as much light to others as she could. The Great Flame surprised her at the end of the event by bestowing a knighthood on her and giving her the title of 'Candle of Hope' -- something she dearly hopes to live up to.   Before the start of the July Tourney, Mykola approached King Bob about her insecurities and how she didn't quite fit in with the Dinos. It was an easier conversation than she thought and within the week she was on her way to House Chiroptera among whom she had met many friends during the previous Tourney. It was during her stay with them that Mykola started to think about founding her own minor house in honor of Senna. One that would offer a safe uplifting haven for all, and give the support necessary to those that needed it a little more. Eventually she decided to pursue the idea further and went to Queen Siobhan to ask after it and discussion of House Ailurus began. She was granted the title of Duchess by Queen Siobhan of House Chiroptera to establish a Protectorate for the new House. During the Tourney, while the Triathlon was happening Mykola spotted someone unexpected. Mykola recognized Senna. Although it had been years and Senna was no longer a child, Mykola was sure it was them. After the events she approached her lost sibling and quickly realized she was not remembered.   With that knowledge she decided to befriend Senna anyway and to see what happened. During their conversations Mykola mentioned her plan to try and found a House and Senna agreed to support.   Construction began on Penwall. The following months saw the birth of the markets and storehouses that many other Houses joined in on the use of. It also saw Mykola's friend Foxx joining House Ailurus as both a Feral bodyguard and the official keeper of the market.   It was also during this time that Mykola and Senna finally discussed Senna's returning memories and their connection. Reforging that bond happened faster than Mykola had ever hoped for, though that was not the only surprise that waited for them, as they were also made aware of their connection to the royal house of Lapin. During the exchange with Sable and their newfound siblings they both shared an overview of what they knew, with Mykola offering to provide documentation █████████ concerning both her and Senna. But before that exchange of information could happen, The Third Word War broke out.   During The Third Word War Mykola did her best to uplift her people and defend them, offering her support to the 50k challenge as backup. When House Chiroptera fell Mykola watched as Senna sacrificed herself to protect the storehouses, an act that saved many in the long run. During the battle she also saved and was saved in turn by her friend and guard Foxx . When she acted to remove Foxx from the situation, something happened and they both wound up far away from the main battle and fleeing through the woods from the Horde. They were both saved by Queen Sable and Prinx Tempest and a flaming Void gate, a "Tang Portal". Foxx had suffered a zombie-cursed bite but was healed by the Bunny Queen before Zombification could occur.   It was at that time that House Ailurus properly joined what was becoming the Woodland Family Alliance and their strength as a family and as leaders was tested when Lapin fell and one of the young Forgelings was lost. Mykola's self doubts almost consumed her but her mother managed to help pull her through despite everything. She helped lead the alliance charge in the final battle alongside the Dino and Bird alliance, happily regaining her lost family.   After the dust settled Mykola and Senna decided to keep House Ailurus at the Warren until Penwall could be rebuilt. House Ailurus had been ceded the chunk of the Pacific Northwest that once belonged to The Missing House, and construction began on a new Penwall.   During the April Tourney of Tales 2023 a massive literomantic ritual was undertaken to help rebuild Penwall. Archon Mykola spent the month gathering power from herself and others in order to power the ritual. The ritual itself was undertaken by Mykola, Senna Nightshade, Sable Aradia, Erin Righ, TaraFaeBelle, Tempest Kwake, and The Bard with Many Names. During the ritual Mykola was overwhelmed by literomantic power and passed out, being saved by her family and friends. However, the ritual was continued by the combined efforts of family and friends and resulted in the new Penwall's completion. The aftermath of the undertaking saw Mykola in the hospital recovering from Magic Drain and overwhelm, joining her mother and Entie in their perscriptions of Crocoade.   During the July Tourney of Tales 2023 Mykola decided that she could not keep up her tradition of daily uplifting quotes on her own and founded a team to help her with doing so, so as to continue to spread light to all tome knights however possible. In addition she did what should could for the charging of batteries to help with the operation to save as many people as possible from the 1337 Speak Reality.

Gender Identity

Mykola is in the process of figuring out what exactly her gender identy truly is. It was only recently that she realized she is somewhere under the umbrella of Non-Binary.

Sexuality

Mykola is Ace-spectrum, aegosexual being the closest matching term she has found to describe herself. She is also Panromantic and open to the idea of polyamory dependent on the comfort of her current signficant other.

Education

For as long as Mykola can remember she has dreamed, created, and written stories and worlds of mysticism and wonder. She was never formaly taught the art of literomancy nor did she know that she was capable of such things. What she lacks in finesse she makes up for in imagination and the speed with which she comes up with ideas.

Accomplishments & Achievements

The Flame of Encouragement by Tempest Kwake
Mykola has been awarded 31 Flames of Encouragement -- one for every day in the April Tourney 2022. It was this impressive accomplishment, and her lovely daily affirmations that everyone began to look forward to, that earned her the title 'The Candle of Hope.'   Mykola among others was gifted the honor of Defender of the Realm for her actions in The Battle of the Book, an honor she takes great pride in.   Mykola Founded House Ailurus after the July Tourney of Tales 2022.

Mental Trauma

Mykola faces extreme imposter syndrome, depression, anxiety (both social and personal), and rejection sensitive dysphoria. She struggles greatly with the need to always be strong for those around her and able to jump and carry their burdens while never allowing others to know her own. This is something she has recently begun to work on tirelessly. Her fear of failure is often her downfall, causing her to freeze up and fail to even try in many circumstances. This feeds into her mental abuse towards herself, and causes an increase in fear of disappointing others, as well as failing in whatever task she was given. She often feels that even when she overcomes the fear of trying she has still failed to live up to expectations. Whether these are the expectations of others or self imposed expectations doesn't seem to matter.

Morality & Philosophy

If I can bring a small amount of happiness or inspiration to even one person's day, I have done my job.
— Mykola Void

Taboos

The senseless and meaningless act of putting others down about anything.   Bigotry of any kind.

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

Mykola strives to care for, encourage, and support those around her. She works to help others to succeed and does her best to make the world a little better. This, and pursuing every avenue of creativity open to her, are her greatest goals.   She wishes to lead House Ailurus to be an open and accepting place for all; to help where they can and lift others up in everything they do. She wants to relieve the stress of others and encourage them to be as great as they can be.

Likes & Dislikes

Mykola adores all things cute and fluffy, often finding the question "What is your favorite animal?" to be nearly impossible to answer -- though she would probably eventually say the Red Panda. She loves music, art, reading and writing, listening to others speak of their passions and dreams, and helping where she can. On the top of her list of dislikes are spiders, clowns, and human dolls; in fact those things absolutely terrify her. She also dislikes those that use others for their own gains, are needlessly cruel, or put others down for fun. Although what she absolutely despises above all else is The Company

    History

    Myko protected Senna from many of the horrors she was subjected to during their twelve years together in the Compound. The sentiment was mutual. After Senna disappeared in a failed experiment and declared dead, Myko didn't believe it and continued searching for the truth.   Senna didn't remember Myko when they were reunited in the April Tourney of Tales of 2022, but did strike up a friendship with her. They formed House Ailurus together in time for the Third Word War.   Senna regained her memories slowly, but did regain them and recognized Myko as her sister sometime in August.

    History

    Sable is incredibly proud of her newly-discovered daughter, and is working hard to be the mother she was not given a chance to be in Myko's childhood. Like with Senna, she recognizes a lot of herself in Myko, including a very sensitive and wounded soul, and is trying to help Myko gain more assertiveness and self-confidence.   Mykola also thinks the world of Sable. Sable stepped up and decided to be a mom and to welcome her in and for that Myko will go to the ends of the earth for her and the rest of her new family, same as she would for Senna (though Senna still holds a very special place). That said, she is somewhat reserved in showing it because she fears scaring away what she just got.
