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
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
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
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
, 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
