Amara Havana Invictus
Hari Ashoka was born in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India to a Prince of the Vijayanagara Empire. His father was a fierce warrior that conquered his way to royalty. His mother died while giving birth to Hari.
After a string of deaths resulting in a secret marriage between his older brother and an Untouchable, Hari's father commits suicide in the hopes that it will cleanse their bloodline. Regardless of the steps taken, Hari's brother refuses to disown his wife. Hari kills his brother in a fit of rage in an attempt to end this once and for all. It doesn't work and instead of giving Hari an honorable death as nobility, he is sold into slavery.
Standing in the courtyard at midnight, Hari is approached by a woman who tells him she's bought him and that if he serves her well, he'll be rewarded with more than any man could dream.
Pattadakal, Karnataka, India- After 10 years as a slave to his Sire, Hari's Sire reveals to him her true nature and gives him a choice to do as she does and live an honorable and very profitable life, or to die right there. He chooses life and she embraces him on the spot.
For many years, Hari and his broodmates acted as spies, bounty hunters, and warriors for hire. They mainly tracked down Silk worm thieves and Kindred wishing to benefit from the secrets of Asia in European Courts.
After being placed with several Au Pairs and it not going well, Hari is finally placed with Celeste Chevallier, who at the time had a wild streak as well. They make a lasting friendship and she helps him learn how to manipulate the traditional Invictus system to get what you want.
Hari is convinced to join the Invictus where they could use his cut throat go getter attitude to further their cause. He spends most of his time in his younger nights in Beaurdeaux, France.
Served under Celeste and several other notable Invictus as a body guard, spy, and warrior during those times. He was known for dueling and was incredibly wild on the battle field.
After meeting several other reckless youthful Invictus, Hari is convinced to join a Dynastic house they are building. In 1775 he is awoken and told that because of the death of one of the Dynasts, and the political obligations of another, the house would disband. Hari is left penniless and is distraught.
Hearing rumors of his broodmate Bahkti causing trouble in Europe, he tracks her to a small village in southern France where he finds out she's given herself to the Brood, and has been working with powerful sorcerers she refers to as "Djin" . She escapes him and they chase one another through Europe and into Northern Africa. Hari finally confronts her and they battle, finally resulting in his stronger broodmate and her allies overtaking him. She attempts to deablarize him but due to the fact that his beast is stronger, it fails and he is sharded into her body. He wanders back towards France for a year, attempting to cope with what has happened.
Having traveled back to France, Hari is captured as a known member of the Brood. He is put on trial as his sister. It takes several years for him to convince them that he is in fact who he says he is. For a second time in his life, he is imprisoned.
After a grueling decade of readjusting to his new life, Hari takes the name Devi, after his mother, and trains himself how to be a woman with the help of Penelope Chevallier (Played by Alex Henning). He is politely informed that because of the travesty that is his situation, Devi should move to the United States to find new purpose for the Invictus. She goes begrudgingly.
In an effort to force tradition in a wild new world, Devi creates a new Dynastic house known as Asphdel. They grow in power enough that Devi can travel the country and enjoy herself, still coming to terms with who and what she now is.
Devi, being the eldest of the Kindred in her house, volunteers herself for Eclipse.
During her sleep, a band of Belials Brood move into the area causing great strife upon their house. A great war insues between the two and the other two dynasts of her house are killed.
With the death of her house, the rose stem wrapped around her heart squeezes tightly and wakes her from her sleep. In a fit of rage, she arises to find Brood ransacking their estate. She is thrown into a fit of rage and kills many of the interlopers before being forced back into torpor by a powerful warrior.
For nearly 90 years, the Brood hold onto her body for some unknown reason that not even Devi is aware of. After being saved by Penelope and a band of brave Invictus Knights, Devi is recovered and brought into the 21st century.
Devi spends the next 5 months acclimating herself to her new surroundings. The world is much different than when she went into torpor. She spends a lot of time not understanding what things are and why people act the way they do. She is very much stuck in the old ways and traditions. Though, that might not be such a bad thing considering the breaking away from the traditions of Kindred Society.
Joan of Arc is captured by the Burgundians while leading an army to relieve Compiègne.
Pope Eugene IV succeeds Pope Martin V, to become the 207th pope.
Boon Structure. Ashoka interested but not completely. Having calmed down from his crazy ways in the 14 and 1500s, he tries to help stabilize the Invictus during this time as an Archon.
Spent the last year of this crucible in Monomancy with some dumbasses who decided their oaths to the First Estate were no longer important. Attempting to bring back the importance of structure in the First estate.
Hari spent most of this time trying to assassinate leaders of the KKK in towns he visited in hopes of pushing back on the Hunters that would attack those he cared for.
