Crecia Stoneglow

Crecia Stoneglow, nicknamed Cre, is a member of the Stone Warband and a tribune in Imperator Bangar Ruinbringer's Blood Legion. She is Bangar's second-in-command and his shrewd Head of Security.[1] She excels at covert ops and is dedicated to her duty, using her cunning to her advantage. Crecia's Flame Legion heritage and innate skills as an elementalist might make some charr cagey, but her loyalty to her imperator and the legion that raised her is seemingly unshakeable.[2]


Early years[edit]

Crecia's sire was a high-ranking shaman in the Flame Legion. Her dam fled the legion so Crecia could be raised somewhere safe, and the pair eventually reached the Blood Legion Homelands where Imperator Bangar Ruinbringer took them in and put Crecia through the fahrar to raise her in the Blood Legion. However, Crecia never forgot where she came from and who she and her dam had left behind.[3]

As a cub, Crecia was one the striplings, which is how the smallest cubs of her fahrar were called, and was bullied by stronger cubs. Eventually she and the other striplings banded together with the young Rytlock Brimstone as their leader and made the bullies stop by teaching them "a few lessons."[4] This band of striplings eventually formed the Stone Warband and was composed of about a dozen males and dozen females, with Crecia selecting the surname Stoneglow for herself.[5] While in the fahrar, Crecia and Rytlock often spotted ice elementals coming down from Shiverpeaks Pass.[6]

Some time after Crecia and Rytlock had graduated from the fahrar, Bangar ordered them to infiltrate the Flame Legion and sabotage it from the inside. Using her gender to her advantage, Crecia successfully poisoned food, stole plans and swapped orders under the noses of the Flame Legion who did not expect a female to be a spy for the Blood Legion.

While on the mission, Crecia and Rytlock learned that the garrison they were in had received Prince Rurik's lost sword Sohothin which Flame Legion agents had discovered on the Ring of Fire islands and were intending to deliver to Imperator Gaheron Baelfire. Crecia objected to Rytlock's plan to steal the sword as it would compromise their mission and put them both in danger; despite her warnings, however, Rytlock killed the guards protecting the sword and begged her to leave with him. Intent on keeping up her cover, Crecia stabbed Rytlock in the leg and sounded an alarm to make herself look less suspicious to the Flame Legion who chased after Rytlock.[7] Crecia successfully stayed undercover with the Flame Legion for years after Rytlock's departure. Around this time, she got close to Gaheron as part of her cover; once Rytlock learned about it, he was not pleased.[8]

Crecia eventually ended her mission and returned to the Blood Legion with the intel she had gathered. She told Bangar that she had only stabbed Rytlock in the leg during his escape from the garrison to make it "look good" in order to ensure the continuation of her mission. She was eventually promoted as the Blood Imperator's second-in-command, becoming his shrewd head of security as a tribune.[1] Many years later, Rytlock still thought about Crecia fondly.[7]

At some point, Crecia gave birth to Ryland Steelcatcher, who was sired by Rytlock. As was common among charr, Crecia cared for Ryland until the time of his weaning, after which she gave him to the fahrar to be raised in Blood Legion ways. Rytlock rarely visited them, leaving Crecia to watch over their son's progress in the legion.

    "Things like... well, like..." Rytlock huffed, making a decision. "All right, here goes: being with the two of you is like being with the striplings."
    "That's what they called us," Rytlock reflected. "In my fahrar—that's the pack they put you in when you're born—in my fahrar they called the smallest of us the striplings."
    "You were small?" Logan asked incredulously.
    "I was the youngest. The smallest. They called me Runtlock."
    "Runtlock!" Logan snorted.
    "I made them stop," Rytlock growled ominously. "I did, and the other striplings did. We banded together, and I was the leader. We taught the bullies a few lessons. Still can't stand bullies."

    Logan looked at his hands. "Guess so." They sat awhile in silence before he asked, "You got any brothers?"
    "About a dozen," Rytlock said with a rueful laugh, "and a dozen sisters."
    "Big family."
    Rytlock shook his head. "Charr don't have families. We have warbands. The bonds are even stronger."
    Logan's eyes grew wide. "Was that them, back there? That funeral pyre?"
    "Course not," Rytlock snapped. "Those were Iron Legion. I'm Blood Legion."
    "You guys all look alike," Logan said with a shrug. "So, where's your warband?"
    "Back east somewhere. I left them."
    That comment hung in the air between them. "Why?"
