Arya timeline

Main

Silk Road

1200 - 1360

During this time the Silk Road was reviltalied in part by the Mongal Expansion. Arya made use of the trade routes provided to help expand his contacts and influence. He was a very tiny part of this, at most having 3-4 caravans running.

Arya's Memory: The Silk Road, almost a thing of the past, was completed revitalized by the work of Arya. He took it over to be able to assist the spread of his business efforts.

Embrace Date

october 15, 1279

Arya is embraced to become a warrior in the fight against the 'daemons' that plague the mortals of India. He was embraced by one of the female kindred in a group traveling from one battle to another.

Arya's memory: Durga birthed him and given him to a small village as a sign of her blessing. After seeing that his skills were needed in the battle verse the daemons, she came again an embraced him, giving the heavenly side of him the chance to come forth.

Night Market is created

may 15, 1295

The Night Market started in the late 1200s. During the next 800 years, the Market grows from a small trade route to a global spanning group. In modern day, they specialize in the marketing of goods for the supernatural world. The Night Market acts as a middle man most of the time but will on occasion hold special Market nights that are never in the same place twice and provide an enforced netural ground for all to come and deal

Arya gives Henrik a boon

Henrik (NPC) provides several of Arya's kinsmen shelter from a blood hunter called by an overzealous Prince and in exchange Arya offers Henrik a boon.

King Louis X of France decrees the freedom of slaves in France

1315 - 1317

Arya hears about this decree and gets a brilliant idea. There are several families of his descendants who he knows knows have been sold into serfdom, in particular a group of jews who immigrated to germanic principalities from Eastern Europe. Arya spends the next year or so tracking them down and oversees their trek to France, thus freeing an entire branch of his lineage from what is, essentially, slavery.

Joined Invictus

1325

The black death reaches France, Denmark, Norway and Britain.

1348 - 1350

Arya withdraws more from mortal interaction as a result, trying to insulate himself from those kine who are being ravaged by the disease. In exchange he becomes more and more invested in the First Estate, and this leads to him joining the Guild of Judexes in 1350.

Sacking of Constantinople

1453 - 1457

Constantinople has been declining economically, in population and military strength. Using European artillery and experts, the Ottoman Turks break through Constantinople's walls. Disciplined Muslim forces capture the city. This ends Constantinople as the center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity and the heart of the remains of the Roman Empire.

Arya is present for the sacking of Constantinople. For the first time, he witnesses the horrific power of modern artillery and truly understands now, from personal experience, that the time when a single Kindred could remain forever safe from kine by maintaining the masquerade is gone. Several Elders in the city die when daytime volleys of heavy shot rip through the walls of their havens. It is at this time that Arya takes to sleeping in a tomb, to further insulate himself from the possiblity of inadvertent exposure to the sun.

Arya’s memory: Sara is his mortal daughter, born in the late 13th century, who he embraces only a couple of decades after his embrace.

Destroyed Johan (NPC) and his whole branch (NPCs)

1603

Truth: Sara’s accounting is short because Arya is put into Torpor by her and Erik after he slides too close to falling to the beast. During the last few years, Arya (at BP10) took it upon himself to destory one of his childer and that whole branch due to sins committed by Johan. During the course of this, Arya drops to a frightening Humanity of 1.

Sara’s Memory: Erik, her broodmate, brutally forces Arya into Torpor, Sara keeps him from killing their sire, calming Erik when he goes for the final kill. (Beth Strickling)

Erik’s memory: Sara and Erik work together using her female charms and his speed to drive a stake into his heart. Arya hardly had a chance to realize what was going on. (Michael Hamilton)

Arya’s memory: Arya recalls a great battle with a large group of demons. During the course of the battle, he was struck down defending a group of Acolytes from the demons.... that they summoned by mistake.

Because of this, he decides to rejoin the Invictus.

Erik's Memory: Erik remembers Hotaru doing most of the talking, Erik and Sara stood by and supported her words. (Michael Hamilton)

Hotaru's memory: She and Eric were actually nice (enough) and logical about it, Sara just kept saying "I swear to god if you don't come back..." and glaring. (Leah Cohlean)

Crucible

1861 - 1865

During this difficult time, Arya worked hard to maintain the connections that the Night Market had built both before and after his time in torpor. It was during this time that the Night Market became known beyond the random dark alley and smokey den.

Many an attempt on his unlive was made, more of them stopped by him learning of it before hand and taking steps to foil the plans.

Saddly, not all of the attempts were able to be stopped thus. Several times, Arya had to kill again. Each time seemed difficult to him. More difficult than he remembered it being in the past.

Forming of the Aesir

1911

Truth: 1911 – Los Angeles, CA Sara, Erik, Arya, Anne, Hotaru and Rowan form the Aesir, a cotiery that is formed to help insure the Traditions are upheld and supported when they are able to help with such.

Sara’s Memory: very vague recollection. She pitched an idea to everyone, hoping to get more support for the Valkyries, somehow she ended up founding some sort of kindred law enforcing coterie. She’s clapped on the back a lot. Gets in a fight with Erik (par for the course) and stabs him. Arya breaks up the fight, and things move on. (Beth Strickling)

Erik’s Memory: They all get together at the request of Erik, there is a large feast and drinking. They enjoy each others company. Erik calmly proposes a plan to form a coterie among them to enforce Kindred Laws and Traditions. They are some of the oldest kindred and it is their responsibility to ensure the safety of their continued existence. Everyone calmly sits and discusses the finer points before agreeing to establish the Aesir. (Michael Hamilton)

Rowan’s Memory: Erik proposes the formation Aesir, quoting the Valkyrie as the source of his inspiration. Sara gets jealous and corners Rowan in private, accusing her of bedding Erik. Rowan denies it, siting how he only has eyes for Sara, as all should. In a moment of realization, Rowan kisses Sara. They are both shocked by the situation, but Sara is flattered and lets Rowan down gently. They vow to never speak of it further. (PC)

Crucible

1912 - 1917

During this time, while not involved in major kinded politics beyond the Regional House of Lords, Arya provided what support he could to the formation and continuation of non-violent resalutions to kindred conflict.

While he will not admit to killing them, he did fund several new Statuary companies...

Woodstock

6-18-1969 - 7-21-1974

Traveled to Woodstock to meet with others of the Graceful Family. Spent a few years traveling with them, getting a better feel for the Catherian Movement as seen through the eyes of Ellis.

Crucible

1988 - 1992

During this time, Arya focused on reestablishing his family connections, both mortal and immortal. He pushed his retainer, the Archive, further than before. Because of this, the Archive was able to make ties with the LDS church and their geneology section as well as several other geneology groups

Torpor

Torpor

1285 - 1293

During the first bit of Arya's eternal night, he was quickly put down during the battles he had been embraced to help with. The Night Market was a direct outcome of this time in the Little Death. This made him realize that he could easily be removed completely from this existence and wanted to make sure something would be left behind that was 'good'.

Torpor

1460 - 1474

During his duties with the Thorned Wreath, Arya was put into a violent torpor. Looking back, he believes this was the start of him stepping away from the duties of the Thorned Wreath and combat overall when he was in a position to be able to avoid it. Because of the time involved, he is a bit hesitate to call upon their services unless truly needed.

Torpor

Torpor

2000 - 2001

Arya entered a voluntary torpor for a year to help 'clear out the cob webs' It was this time that, upon waking, he discovered that not all of his dairies and records had been saved through out the years. In fact, he was able to trace the lost of some to the Brood attacks in the SW. He now has a driving goal to make sure this does not happen again.
