Back to Elizabetha.


After her near suicide attempt, as well as the mourning of Dywana (who she had come to see as a sister she had never had) and the expelling of Honoria, Elizabetha was slowly molded, coming to realise that perhaps not all what she hopes for could be reached. This in turn made her more careful, but also made her focus more on the virtue of tenacity, opening her eyes to the difference between justice and mercy. The events of those weeks reminded her of her duty as a Paladin, Scarlet or no. With renewed faith in the Light, and abhorrance to the hate that engulfed her enviroment, Elizabetha accepted that her path might eventually lead to a premature death, but was at peace with it - yet (as always) hoping against hope that the Holy Light will shine brightest, making the world a better place.

Suffice to say, Elizabetha changed in that particular time, less patient than she was before - the consequences remained to be seen. Nevertheless, her desire to help through acts of compassion and love still drived her on in such a way that she'd gladly forsake her own needs on the behalf of others'. That has not changed even with her terrible loss.

Elizabetha was at one point temporarily blinded by Entriia Darkstorm upon a venture of curiousity into the Slaughtered Lamb Inn. Only a very few people know or have been told this by her - seemingly she was hesistant to speak of it openly. Nevertheless, her eyesight returned shortly after.

With the death of Commander Dakatar Methar, Elizabetha was again thrust into a state of melancholy, mourning him intensely. Only when busy with someone else's needs did (and does) she seem to be alright, yet soon after returning to the former state she were in. The reasons for her deep mourning is known only to a few people. Devastating was also the news of Auburn's untimely death.

After a trip to the Western Plaguelands in hope to remind herself of her duty, Elizabetha was confused to have slaughtered innocents, and as retaliation three strangers deprived her of her eyes, mistaking her for the killer of their relatives. Being thus visually impaired, Elizabetha has been discharged from the Crusade. Some rumours say that she was expelled, branded a traitor for accepting help from Night Elves.

She dwelled in Darnassus, this being the result of sending for Honoria Redcross, who receiving a message from the Kaldorei High Priest Thel'danis, came to her accompanied by Mordacious. At his suggestion they agreed upon bringing Elizabetha to Darnassus, where she's being tended by various Night Elves healers and priestesses, having been moved there from Uther's Tomb where her wounds were cared for by the High Priest Thel'danis.

Having dwelled a while in Darnassus for a while after the loss of her eyes, as well as the visit by the blind Eileena from Starlight calmed Elizabetha - she had found someone whom she can relate with and who understood her situation in turn, and was encouraged to carry on the work of the Light. And on that note, Elizabetha walks more confidently, probing with her staff that Illidor from The Cenarion Guardians gave her.

Yet her troubles are far from over, it has appeared, as hapless Elizabetha seems to lose friends in drows. The death of Iana was yet another hard burden for her - further still are rumours of Honoria, her sister in heart, of treading in the shadow. Elizabetha has discovered that many things that she thought she knew were either plain lies or well disguised truths. Much still lies beneath the surface, and the lack of eyes only makes it harder for her to seek out the hidden things. But the unsuspected support from Lord Richeron Withamhall seemed more welcomed than some might imagine.

After Richeron Withamhall finally told her of his true feelings, Elizabetha opened herself to an unknown aspect of life for her, having never truly allowed any man to get close to her. She seems to return his affection for her fully - and as a result he has offered her shelter at his home at the Mage Quarter, giving her a proper home that she had lacked since her terrible loss.

Elizabetha is still the same, regardless; frowning upon cruelty, grieved at the senseless murdering of innocents as happened in Lakeshire. In her heart she utterly despises the Shadow and the Darkness, yet still clings to the hope that people can be redeemed, and that she is able to do that - a hope she nourishes for her lost sister at heart, while at the same time hoping to protect those who caused Honoria to fall from the Light in her blinded rage. She also hopes to root out the mysterious group known as The Dark Embrace, appalled by their obvious disregard for life and the delicate balance of the world as whole.

Elizabetha spent a few days recovering in Astranaar after a battle with the Dark Embrace at Northwatch Keep, where she along with Ceadric and Caswan Clayworth tried to prevent Entriia falling back into the Embrace's hands. Unwilling to abandon Entriia to Lashela Alania, Elizabetha fought as best she could, but was ultimately overcome, stabbed in the stomach by Nymphadora and in her side by Azumi, puncturing a lung. Only when having knocked her to the ground was she defeated.

The timely arrival of Richeron Withamhall, as well as their new ally Silentstep Sprocket, ensured Elizabetha's survival, as Richeron prayed to the Light to save his beloved - bringing her back from the edge of death. With the help of Merwyn she recovered her heavy blood loss, and is focussing her efforts in finding a way to battle the Dark Embrace along with her assembled group of associates of the Redemptio Coronae.

The recent kidnapping and mutilation of Imoenak utterly stunned Elizabetha, as Imoenak's pain was to warn off Elizabetha - yet she was still willing to continue the fight. And with the attack on Southshore, as per Karina's plan, aided by Starlight and various other people, including some direct and indirect support from Elizabetha's fellows from Redemptio Coronae, it finally seemed that peace was within sight, as Lashela Alania was apparently defeated, and her supporters scattered.

The capture of her sister at heart, Honoria, grieved Elizabetha, as it seemed evident that Honoria would be executed; she escaped however, and soon after contacted Elizabetha to meet her in secret.

Elizabetha was then later seen carried to the Cathedral of Light, and tended for some wound of some sort. The rumours told that she jumped out from where the Gryphons are at, presumeably on purpose, but that some Dwarf (Ulgarf] jumped down after her. People spoke of her being dragged up back on shore, quickly surrounded by various people, before being rowed on the opposite shore, and disappearing without a trace with a number of these people.

After her suicide attempt her current whereabouts remained unknown to most but Nelinde, Merwyn, Nouala and Richeron.

Due to the kind Draenei Vahden, as well as the mysterious Naaru O'ros, who had guided Nouala's search for Elizabetha, she seemed to have come to terms with what she is, though she deep down was afraid that people admired her instead of what she felt she represented, the Holy Light. Her wish for peace in death appeared to have faded away. The arrival of Richeron, and his poor state, only added more to Elizabetha's shame of her deed, and she hoped to make amends. Subsequently she alerted the Church of Light, the headquarters being the Cathedral, of her wellbeing, while still gathering inner strength, and much needed faith in herself, before returning home.

Regardless, she was often seen in the Exodar, the crashed ship of the Draenei. Those who've saw her and recognised her appeared to notice that she seemed happier than previously. Shortly before returning to Stormwind, she was seen entering the Exodar with Richeron, making their way to the inner most part of the ship, where O'ros the Naaru resides.

Having dwelled for a time in both Moonglade and the Exodar, Elizabetha finally returned home to Stormwind, visiting the Cathedral from time to time to pray as was customary for her. She seemed happier now than previously, a golden ring with small diamonds circling an emerald sparkling on her one finger - she prepared as best she could for her wedding, which took place Saturday the 17th of February, where she became Lady Withamhall, the wife of Lord Richeron Miller Withamhall. After the ceremony and the party afterwards, which all had been held at Uther's Tomb, the couple bid farewell to the last guests and departed to a destination that only they knew.

The couple returned to Stormwind. Not long after, Elizabetha was pleasantly surprised to find that Auburn had returned, thus bringing an end to the belief that she had perished in the lands of former Lordaeron. Elizabetha's mind has thus been strengthened more, albeit she seems somewhat tired and looking rather warm, bordering uncomfortabilty.

At one point she was wandering Stormwind, anxious to hear from her husband again after Merwyn told her of a fight, where Richeron was wounded. To further add to her sadness, Imoen appeared all too eager to forget the ideals of the Light, when violently giving vent to her anger towards Hejin. The only moments of peace have appeared to be when holding Norra, Amy Redcross' infant daughter.

Fortunately, after almost three days of missing, Richeron was found by Ulgarf, who stormed out to the Withamhall house and met Elizabetha already on her way out. She was quickly lead to her husband, whom she embraced tightly and kissed desperately, out of herself in both concern and happiness. The two of them returned home shortly after.

Elizabetha was well, happy about her pregnancy and doing what she could to make it easier for herself by having naps every now and then, eating small meals to help with the morning sickness. To make it better Imoen came up to her in the Cathedral and apologised for her behaviour.

And after some inquiries from her friend Nelinde Belgarde Elizabetha finally accepted the invitation to join the Stormwind Academy, offering her knowledge of history, as well as the Light, to the Academists.

Yet despite these things the memories of people lost, as well as meeting people who willingly and openly express their total disregard for their fellow Humans, or other races, disturbed her easily. Much evil is still left to battle on Azeroth, and she, a Paladin, is unable to do so. A few hushed whispers suggest that someone is trying to help her with that, but how is not known.

She had recently a private conversation with Sister Louise, but what was discussed is unknown.

Elizabetha was seen leaving Stormwind recently with a fellow Paladin, Auburn, the purpose of their journey or why her husband, Lord Richeron, didn't come along, was unknown - nor was their destination revealed.

When using the arcane essence Hoshitangan that Merwyn implanted in her brain, she gained temporary sight, which manifested itself with faintly glowing blue 'eyes' - they were more easily seen when she wasn't wearing her blindfold, albeit shining slightly through it, if she wore the blindfold. This was till Merwyn left her mortal shell; after that it faded away.

Three days later she, Nouala and later Richeron returned to Stormwind, yet Elizabetha had changed, sporting an eyepatch and a somewhat functioning eye. Though initially thought to have failed, Elizabetha is gaining more sight in her one eye, which has a bright blue iris.

Elizabetha seemed happy, excited and was continually heard talking about returning to active service for the Church of Light, as well as taking more tasks at the Stormwind Academy.

Desire to return to service was even more desireable after Stormwind seems to have been hit by a new and more violent crime wave - both Amy Redcross and Nouala were attacked, the former hazardly.

After discovering that not even her husband, Richeron, had been spared the violence of whatever gang that caused all the trouble, Elizabetha snapped and put on her armour again, taking up her sword. Firstly she helped track down Imoen and after that she began hunting the criminals. This ended with one bleeding to death, and another being dragged off by Kisun and Ormsby to who knows what fate. The one Elizabetha knew to have hurt both Amy and Nouala still roamed, and she kept up her searching. In that process she nearly got wounded in her stomach, realising to her horror what danger she was putting herself and her child in.

Thanks to operatives of her husband's organisation, the Mercenary Alliance, she and Richeron were escorted to Stormwind Keep - Elizabetha having drawn upon her husband's nobility perks. Whether they'll stay there or not is at anyone's guess.
