General-Queen Rain Silves, also known as the Supreme General, and The Mad Queen of the Sergals, was a brutal and vicious sergal female who served as Supreme General of the Sergal Empire, and shortly afterwards forcibly claimed the role of Queen for a short while, taking on the title of General-Queen, from approximately 5E 2141 to 2155 CE. She was a definitive character in the history and development of the sergal race and also played a key role in forming the Velous nations of Earth into what they are today.
Originally named Raineia Silves, she was born into the Sergal Royal Family, as the Princess, along with her brother, Normedus, who later in history became King of the Sergals. Rain was a fierce, cunning, and incredibly talented warrior, and was just as skilled with her tongue as she was with her famous dual-bladed glaive. However, she suffered from what her kind believed was madness (it was later found she had schizoaffective disorder), and as a result her behavior was erratic at the best of times. Regardless she was a brilliant tactician, a fierce leader, and a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield, becoming the Supreme General of the Sergal military at a young age.
Still after this, it was not enough for Rain, she took her Vanguard and marched on the Argopotamian capital of Elohim, and using the threat of force, deposed her own Father from the Throne, and became Queen. After becoming the sole monarch of the Sergals, Rain consolidated power by having her Vanguard "convince" the Imperial Council to disband, which left the Queen as the only power-holder in the land. Under her direction, the Sergal Empire launched massive campaigns across all of Velous - invading Berona, Oberheim, Aldmeris, and even Orsinium. Rain had a vision of a "New Argos", an Empire spanning across the face of the planet under Sergal control. Under their General-Queen's guidance, the Sergals enslaved the native peoples of the lands they conquered and held these regions in an iron grip.
It wasn't until years later that Rain was challenged by her own brother, Normedus, and her regime was taken on by his followers and rebel Sergals. After a civil conflict torched the city of Elohim, Normedus was able to depose Rain and have her imprisoned. With the vacuum of power left behind in the wake of the shattering blow to the Empire, Ork forces in Sergal-controlled Orsinium rose up in a bloody effort that drove their oppressors off, and paved the way for the Ork and Sergal War.
HistoryRaineia, since her youth, was a black sheep amongst her family. She never desired to rule from a throne, but rather to let her deeds live through action. While this sounds noble, she was also a condescending and ruthless girl, who would insult and beat other kids up for no reason other than to prove her strength, which got her in trouble many times. However, as she matured, she realized that her violent tendencies were wasted on her fellow sergals, so she decided to join the military.
She started at a young age, beginning as infantry at the age of 14. Many of her comrades laughed at her and greatly doubted her abilities, given her age and inexperience. However, it soon became apparent that she was born to fight. Even after a few short tours of duty across Vilous, she became known as a fierce swordsman, a brutal fighter, and also a leader. She ascended the ranks quickly until she eventually reached the rank of Supreme General at the age of 19.
