Kethry "Aethertalon" Sableregn, the Stormborn.
Night Elf / Demon hunter/ blue dragon
Aethertalon the Blue Dragon, aka Kethry the Highborne, nested in Mazthoril cave in Winterspring. Even though Aethertalon was born to the blue flight, she had a fondness for the Red Dragon Queen. Kethry had never known from whose egg she hatched, but Alexstrasza had helped, in that Kethrigosa was blessed by the Dragon mom because of damage to her egg. This transfer of power and energy left a mark on the would be nest guardian.
Aethertalon lived through the Dragon Wars and afterwards took up residence in Winterspring with Haleh. Blue dragons were almost wiped out, so it was Haleh and other Blue's duty to make sure more eggs were laid and hatched. These blue drakes made their home in the icy landscape of Mazthoril Cave, exiled away from the rest, but still almost like home enough to think that maybe this could be it. Haleh had hoped this remote location might make it so they couldn't be found, as well, so they made their mark and moved in.
Hundreds of years pass and Aethertalon has been a guardian for some time. Ever vigilant. There were occasions she would disguise herself and visit the town proper, and it was one such event that changed her life forever.
The Highborne elf form that she preferred, was better received in these parts than others, and the dragon was in the disguise for all of a few seconds, before her foot stepped into an invisible trap. Green runes snapped onto her ankle like a bear trap, searing into her blue-ish skin. Her instinct was to shift back into her dragon form, but in attempting it, Kethry found her magics thrown against an invisible wall. Her first cell, and it wouldn't be her last.
Aethertalon, or the Highborne named Kethry, felt the world drop out from beneath her feet, and fell into darkness. Her world zipped away and suddenly she was in a free fall that never stopped. She had no idea what happened, but over the next couple of weeks of spying, she learned a lot about herself as well as the demon that now possessed her body.
Sableregn, the Succubus, was summoned into Kethry's body by a warlock of the Black Dragon flight.
Ebonveil was devious and Deathwing needed more eggs for his experiments in making a new dragon flight based off his own image. While Kethry hadn't been an issue before, others had started to take notice and he had to camouflage his intentions, and Mazthoril was the one place he felt they were at their weakest since they were separated from others.
Deathwing sent the warlock to dispatch of the blue dragon, but didn't say how. Ebonveil was known for her creativeness though, so he knew whatever it was the elf had planned, it would get the job done.
Dark black hair cloaked her green eyes like a curtain. Dark red lips tilted into a bow shape as she smiled. Ebonveil now laid eyes on a blue Succubus. The dragon's immense power couldn't be stifled completely, so the succubus was blue instead of the usual pink. The woman before her was similar to the one before, but this was definitely an upgrade. Ebonveil smiled as the Succubus rolled her eyes and said, "Can we get this over with? I didn't want to work today..."
"What is your name?" Ebonveil whispered with honey tipped words. Her excitement over not only torturing the dragon, but learning a demon's true name in order to keep it within her control was intoxicating. None of her demons lasted long enough for her to care, but this one was obviously special and any attempt to whittle away at Kethrigosa within her own mind, was enough to set Ebonveil into gluttonous action.
"Beautiful.. "Dark Rain" it is then? I'm curious..." Ebonveil stopped talking when the former dragon, now Succubus, grabbed her by the throat. Ebonveil knew the potential results of merging the two, but this show of power, even with a contract... The Succubus' hand was flung off by a whispy purple and green flicker of power and Ebonveil used this same energy to return the threat.
The toxic magic swirls gathered around the Sable, though she did not flinch nor move. They both stood and held each others gazes.
"I work with you, not for you. You're limited on this contract, but the minute I am given another opportunity to go back to my LAVISH lifestyle of whips and wine, is the very same day you die."
Sable watched as the warlock processed her threat and realized her own mortality.
"Fine, but pick another appearance. I need you to go back in."
Sable sighed and sat downm obviously bored.
The elf raised a dark feather of a brow in disbelief.
"Excuse me I --."
Sable's bored expression swapped instantly to danger.
"If you want to know the exact day you die, keep talking."
Ebonveil was supposed to send her new captive back in as a mole, but because the Succubus was stuck in this half form, there was no way they could pull it off. So the warlock decided that Sableregn would just be her own personal demon. In no short time, Sableregn had done terrible things, and Kethry watched within her own mind, disgusted and shameful over what the Succubus did while piloting Kethry's body. The prison the warlock had held her in inside her own mind, was too tight for her to move, but she could still see and witness everything as per the warlock's design.
One day Ebonveil took Sableregn to Netherwing ledge to check in. It was here that Kethry snapped, and it was here that her plan came to fruition.
After she discovered that the blue eggs were being stolen to create a new flight with other flight's eggs, Kethry began to bargain with the Succubus. She showed her the power she could wield, and spoke to her lazy side. The succubus hated to work, so she hated Ebonveil. Kethry said all they had to do was share the body and let Kethry control it majority of the time, but if they could share, their powers would be....something else.
The Succubus wasn't stupid. The combination of dragon magic and fel was indeed a tempting proposition, but it was Kethry's offer to take over the majority of the controls that swayed her. Sableregn as she was, even in that body, was unable to wield the dragon magics and she was willing to bet money that if Kethry was in charge, she wouldn't be able to use fel magics, but together....?
There was an audible snap as Kethry came back to consciousness. It was in the blink of an eye, that the warlock and all of the orcs, were freed of their mortal coils. The Netherdrakes were free of their shackles, and once that was done, Kethry and Sableregn both decided that their powers combined needed assistance, and they'd heard of Illidan and his operation at the Black Temple.
Of course Kethry gave him all of the information, including who and what she was. She could not control the fel unless Sableregn was in possession of the body. So Illidan created a set of runes that allowed Kethry to see the fel overlay on her spectral sight using her eye covers. These covers also cover up her still blue eyes..
This also means that Kethry is unable to use the glaives, but this is because she has over-sized dragon fists that she fights with.
After imprisonment, Kethry Sableregn is freed from her demon hunter prison, and goes out into the world to see everything she'd missed. Within her prison, she had felt Malygos's death and upon her release, noted that the tears had burned down her cheeks. Apparently this was something elves could do. (Sable hates that she has that in common with Sylvanas) Kethry isn't quite on board with where the dragons are right now and feeling like she has no Flight to go back to, she pledges herself to Aviana and receives feathers on-top of her webbed wings.
Note: Sable's design is based off of an idea that the elves possessed by certain demons, would take on that same form during metamorphosis. So in this respect, The Succubus visage is Kethry's new and only one now, and that's because elements of the Succubus and the Blue Dragon combined and made a being whole holds two spirits and resembles a little bit of both, but with a Blue Flight aesthetic
