    Raghnall frowned deeply to himself when Rowen simply wandered off, thinking to himself as the Dhampyr brought a hand to his chin, Hmm, she must be unable to fight back. That's interesting. I suppose it makes sense too, holding a vampire like that can be difficult. Something to look into later. The soldier from earlier was still trying to take the rifle from Raghnall as yet more approached him, carrying chains. The man went willingly with them to the helicopters, amazed at the marvels of machinery that apparently flew through the air much like a bird. Well, not exactly like a bird, the helicopters didn't flap their wings or anything. It was a science Raghnall decided he would endeavor to understand later. In the helicopter however, he sat quietly by himself, staring outside one of the windows. Upon his face could be found no discernible emotions, besides a strange look in his eye.

    Harper has one pair (two) escrima sticks, a pair of taser guns, and her own personal Batwing.

    Weaknesses:
    The main reason Harper does what she does is to make sure her younger brother, Cullen, is safe and out of harms way. So when he is put in danger or injured, Harper will usually get extremely angry and desperate, doing anything it takes to keep him safe, which can in turn lead to her downfall one day.

    Bio:
    In early issues featuring Harper Row, she is introduced as a streetwise young woman from the Narrows, one of the roughest neighborhoods in Batman's locale of Gotham City. She and her brother are also revealed to be from a broken family with a deceased mother and a deadbeat father who would later end up in jail.[9] With such humble beginnings, Row did not seem naturally inclined to be a hero. In fact, she made her first appearance stealing food from a Wayne charity gala.[6] However, her life changed when Batman saved her brother Cullen from being gay-bashed, although not before the bullies managed to butcher Cullen's hair with a pair of scissors.

    Batman's intervention left a lasting impression on the young woman. In addition to shaving her own head in solidarity with her brother, Harper began trying to learn more about Batman in order to assist him in his fight against crime in Gotham. She even managed to discover the devices Batman uses to disable the city's security cameras, and improved them with technology of her own design.

    Her efforts only earned the Batman's ire; at one point he rewarded Harper's attempts at helping him by breaking her nose. The next day Harper visits Bruce Wayne at Wayne Tower and shows him plans that she thinks will help Batman. To her surprise, Bruce agrees. That night, Batman tracks Harper and apologizes to her. She tells him she may not know the details, but she knows he’s going through a lot of pain (the death of Damian Wayne). She also reminds Batman what he means to the city with a touching and personal story. The issue concludes with Harper’s message to Batman broadcast on Wayne Tower. It’s one simple word taught to Harper by her mother before her death: “RESOLVE", which just so happens to begin with the letter “R". Even saving Batman's life by pulling his unconscious body out of Gotham Bay and restarting his heart using only jumper cables and a car battery failed to win him over.

    In Batman Eternal, Harper stows away on board Red Robin (Tim Drake)'s plane and, over the course of the series, gains his trust. In issue #41, she suits up as Bluebird for the first time in order to rescue her brother Cullen; Red Robin and his allies Batgirl and Red Hood are caught up in a trap, leaving it up to her. Despite setbacks in her relationship with Batman himself, a near-future flash forward shows that Row eventually manages to overcome Batman's reservations and joins him in fighting crime as Bluebird.

    During Batman & Robin Eternal, it is revealed that Harper's mother was murdered by Cassandra Cain, who it is eventually revealed was acting as an agent of 'Mother', a villain who manipulates traumatized children on the grounds that she will make them stronger through trauma (Although Cassandra had been sent to kill both of Harper's parents and only killed her mother before she found she couldn't do it). Even more shockingly, Mother had Harper's mother murdered as part of a plan to 'offer' Harper to Batman as the perfect Robin; Batman had made contact with her to try and expose her long-term agenda and believed that he was meant to kill the parents of the new Robin Mother had chosen for him, when actually he was just sent after two of Mother's other disciples as a test of his loyalty to her ideals while Harper's parents were attacked in Gotham. Despite recognizing Harper's qualities would make her an ideal partner, at the time Batman simply forced her surviving father to take responsibility for his role as a parent as he didn't want to benefit from Mother's plan, never revealing the truth even after Harper began working with him as Bluebird. Mother attempts to win Harper to her point of view by arguing that her own family fell apart so that she had to rise up on her own, offering to let Harper kill Cassandra Cain after revealing that Cassandra was the one who killed her mother, but Harper rejects that idea, proclaiming that she grew up because her mother supported and recognized her desire for a better life rather than trying to make Harper be what her mother believed would work.

    Following Mother's defeat, Harper assures the returned Batman that she understands his reasons for not telling her about his history with Mother and his indirect role in her mother's death, but recent events have prompted her to go to college to receive official qualifications for her electrician skills and explore a life outside of the vigilante role, but Batman assures her as she leaves that Bluebird will always be welcome in Gotham if she decides to suit up again.
     
  3. Lucius chuckled. "What?"
     
  4. Put up the basic description of humans in general, as well as the list of the four major groups of humans on Kithlinor. Will start work on filling out the Desberikan summary tomorrow.
     
  5. Interesting...quite a bit of work put into this concept.

    Novels perhaps? Or will you submit this world to the fate of rping?
