EAU ‘LONGHORN’ L’DELL
REALM: Cyan Mentalism
HEIGHT: 194 cm
Born in 1141 in a waggon rolling through the rough lands of Kustu in the spring, he is said to have been the longest male child ever pulled from a Tatongol. His mother, a Jomzaar within fought to get the upper hand. When they passed castles, towns, and cities, he longed to experience them and taste their lives.
So in 1160, as they attended a fair in Makdush at the plains bordering Ebrar, he heard that some lesser nobles needed a stable master and applied for the position. This was, of course, not to the liking of his tribe, but at least his parents wished him good luck in life. And it should prove to be the first in a long line of successful choices.
One thing that never diminished in him was his urge to make a good deal or arrange it so that he earned an extra gold coin or two. This led him into contact with not only Nefius, Lionel, and Setil, but also with powers trying to strengthen their position in Midgard or weaken opponents trying to get a foothold on their Isles. Thus, he became good friends with the Horde. Junnatu Weavers, and in 1167, when Meanbone became king, Longhorn joined them and started working on their behalf in Midgard.
During the last 3 years of the 60’s, he tended vast herds through Kustu, Gaslug, and Tusla, impressing everyone with his organisation and logistic skills. In 1169, he was finally rewarded for joining the house of the lesser noble. As the Baron died childless, Longhorn was appointed to continue managing the estate and was made Baron. This gave him direct access to the upper circles of the royal court of Kustu.
Having grown to a power to recon, he was in 1190 contacted by Nefius, who told him that new trading partners, the Kinoblin, wanted to buy cattle meat as it had become quite a delicacy in Outlands. In return, Longhorn would become a partner in the Triad Traders, an offer he accepted after being promised one-third of all profit. Thus, he started to sell gargantuan amounts of meat, and to keep the profit high, no report or taxes floated to anyone but the Triad Traders.

Eleven… ninety… seven… surely in heaven…
In the dusk… cracking tusk… without strain… poked its brain…
After the excavation incident, he decided to fund the Monster Hunters, especially Coposim, and he began to show greater interest in the Astral Site/Gates. But he also kept strengthening his own vast network, often disregarding both Triad Traders agenda and plans from Junnatu Weavers. When The Realm was founded and Black Oak crowned as 1st High King, he acted in support of the cause. But mostly, he benefited himself the most.
So, in 1257, when Nefius suddenly vanished, Longhorn acted swiftly to fill the vacuum, but it was as if some force was always one strap ahead. And meanwhile, he did grab a larger piece of the cake; an unknown opponent got a far larger slice. And when Nefius popped forth again in 1262, he only helped reluctantly.
In the spring of 1277, much to his surprise, his agents told him that Woodmaster was in his town, acting incognito and asking questions regarding fodder, butchery, transport, and the like. Knowing the High King was on track with their dealings with the Kinoblin, he approached Nefius. In return for the lack of support since his return, he told him that whatever dealings he’d done since 1257 were his own to pay dues for. That was when Longhorn realised more was aloft than at first thought. So he informed his Kinoblin partners that supplies would halt. It’s still uncertain if it was this action that launched The Great Invasion, but as it unfolded, Longhorn was travelling on a ship to Tusla. He still remembers seeing more Kinoblin Junks than ever before, and he is certain he saw some Aquerian flying towards Academy of Ea.
He landed on the shores of a burning Tusla and headed straight for the Junnatu Caves. In 1278, he reached the Junnatu Caves, and a week later, he was discussing things with Meanbone. When Aragon and Polski came around with two waggons loaded with magic glass ingots. Hearing that this glass could pacify Aquerian Magic. They gave each Junnatu Weavers a sharp ingot and sent the rest to Mt. Vula.
Living by the enormous wealth he acquired before the Great Invasion and pardoning any foolish interactions with the Kinoblin, he is no longer part of the Triad Traders or affiliated with the Junnatu Weavers. Instead, he has set up a real company of excavators and formed a new Scholars have joined, if not fully, as part-time or project consultants based on their specific knowledge. In their first great meeting, Longhorn was elected as their grandmaster.with excavation as the core agenda. Within a year, many
