100th Millennium Wiki

Vurilia Jutopati stands as a shining yet aging beacon of balance. He is a man of great Thaumic prowess and political power, as he was forged from the heavens and given enormous strength by an Angel, Mother Sydiah. Vurilia was born for the sole purpose of serving and protecting Sedrua, Sydiah's nation which she propagated herself. He was placed alongside his brethren as Sedrua's highest of leaders. While Vurilia may be a 'lesser' being compared his divine mother, his apparent inferiority is irrelevant compared his vast amount of achievements. For one, Vurilia is one of, if not the only leader of Sedrua which showed true, undying commitment and passion for his people. It is marked by history that Vurilia's actions have brought Sedrua on a pedestal during his reign.

Vurilia's life is nothing short of blissful chaos. He was forged by Mother Sydiah, an Angel which sought to create the perfect race of warriors and observers. Sydiah created numerous siblings for Vurilia, giving him companionship as a nation began to form around him. For thousands of years, Sedrua expanded with vehement, conquering energy as it thwarted its enemies with ease. Vurilia was one of the masterminds behind Sedrua's success, and was eventually honored as Sydiah's heir. This cycle of conquest and assimilation broke however, as Mother Sydiah caused Wane of Reality after attempting to summon the other Angels. In the wake of chaos, Vurilia assigned himself as a warrior and allowed his sibling Itrian Istya to rule.

Following the Wane of Reality, Vurilia became significantly more progressive than his peers. Repeated defeats to the hands of rival nations fueled his need of change, and so he helped remove the very man he placed in Sedrua's throne. Vurilia became Sedrua's new leader, and his policies were very effective despite violating Sydiah's ideology. He even upheld an alternative faith, causing much discourse in Sedrua's government and populace. Slow cooking tensions grew for thousands of years, breaking as Sedrua's senate became the subject of a coup d'etat. For tens of thousands of years after, Vurilia was exiled and defiled, though he trained his mind and body to eventually regain control of Sedrua. After directly defeating his adversaries, Vurilia rose to the top once more, trembling the galactic stage as he moved swiftly in his actions.

Sedrua became a power synonymous with success and redemption. While may nations held its suspicions, Vurilia's skill with diplomacy and his charismatic attitude convinced many that Sedrua had returned. Vurilia's faith was pushed to no end as Novel Aeternalism rose, eventually beating out its ancient Classical parent. Disregarding a brief stint of awkward leadership during the War of the Ancients, Vurilia was by all means an effective and fair leader. His second reign hardly lasted in his eyes however, as Vurilia's nemeses utilized advanced technology and Thaumic power to begin the Angelic Awakening. In mere hours following the event, Mother Sydiah and five other Angels emerged from the Lux Aeterna. Sydiah's return to the material realm toppled Vurilia's leadership once again, and he was cast to the Lux Aeterna for centuries. In contemporary ages, Vurilia was retrieved from the Aeterna by his allies, who aimed to take down the Angels once and for all. In the modern day, Vurilia acts as a leader against Sydiah and her fellow Angels, alongside seemingly unlikely allies and longtime friends.

Biography

Early Years

Initially created by Mother Sydiah, Vurilia's purpose was to oversee her Architects and guide his nation Sedrua to great success. He was effectively Sydiah's right hand man, vehemently protecting her image and following her direct orders. As such, Vurilia was often thought of as a co-leader for Sedrua, and was almost unanimously respected in the government and across Sedrua's population. As his nation rose, Vurilia fought to no end, even joining direct conflict against the United Provinces during one of Sedrua's greatest wars. He fought side by side with his siblings and gained Sydiah's unwavering trust, allowing him to become her heir. As ages went by, it appeared as if Vurilia's position and great power would never come to an end. Nevertheless, great ages of gold were followed by a ravaging period of strife and anguish.

Upon discovery of the Angelic Pantheon, Mother Sydiah was completely convinced of her purpose. She wanted to set free the Angels, bringing them to Aylathiya once again. Her empire showed abrasions after all, something which needed to be removed lest Sedrua be scattered about in instability. She disregarded the strain of retrieving the Angels however, and Sydiah was cast away to the Lux Aeterna as her Pylon shattered into pieces. A great wane of reality followed as the heavens clashed with the mortal realm. Vurilia stood in consternation as his Architect brethren flocked to the great rifts. While most aimed at dispelling the new plague, others sacrificed themselves, believing wholeheartedly that retribution was through the rifts. The majority that stood behind was left to pick up the pieces, now weakened by the ongoing chaos.

Vurilia was the one chosen to lead the nation amidst the calamity. Surprisingly however, he declined his position as an heir. Instead, he relinquished the duties to his sibling Itrian Yutira. He thought of Itrian as a better tactician and planner, as Vurilia purported himself as a less thoughtful, more militaristic individual. Upon doing so, Vurilia lost a noticeable amount of respect amongst his peers, though most understood his motivations for giving up power. Many common people saw it as a noble act, believing that Vurilia was very humble and generous. His popularity and reverence would have been relatively the same if it were not for his new idea. Seeing the calamity unfold, Vurilia deeply studied the Aeterna, taking Itrian's place as a lower member of the government. Upon the conclusion of his research, he decided that Aeternalism, Sedrua's state religion, was inherently flawed and biased. He modified the faith to give it a much more scientific point of view, removing much of its legendary background in favor of a logical perspective. He took his new beliefs to the Sedruan people, sparking great discourse amongst him and the government.

What started from then on was an age of suspicion. Vurilia, while still respected in a sense, was thought of as a traitor or blasphemer by many. The traditionalist Sedruan population, while slightly curious at the new faith, ultimately declined it. Few Aeternalists converted to the Novel faith, though the agnostics took a keen eye to its scientific basis. Novel Aeternalism permanently redefined Vurilia's image, making him a much more controversial figure. He remained in the government for many thousands of years however, and did gain some of his respect through diplomacy and great tact. While not on the level of his siblings, Vurilia too was an excellent planner, and influenced the mechanisms of Sedrua's government to a fine level. He was then known as someone who gave liberties to the people, which enforced his popularity despite his unusual beliefs.

Ages passed prior to the the next major development. By the time Vurilia was comfortable in the eyes of the people, Sedrua engaged in a brutal conflict against a rival power. While Vurilia supported (and even considered fighting in) the war at first, he soon saw that Itrian was terribly flawed. Years and years of constant thaumic power reduced his once great tact to that of a brute, as he gained onset Thaumic Insanity. He believed that blindly sending Architects was a viable method of de-stabilizing their enemy, the Payotari Alliance. It worked flawlessly for the first sections of the war, though it became useless as the Payotari Alliance used their strongest asset to deter Sedrua. Vurilia and his colleagues repeatedly demanded for changes in battle plans, something which was denied until the very end of the war. By then, Sedrua was so hopelessly defeated that war could no longer continue. In a similar vain, Itrian embarked in a war against the Triumvirate, though his tactics stood relatively the same. Sedrua was utterly humiliated by defeat after defeat, stirring great tension.

Vurilia was greatly angered by Itrian's recent developments. Likewise, many of Vurilia's peers were greatly upset at him, viewing him as a reckless fool who endangered the nation. By the time of Sedrua's recovery, Vurilia demanded a fair removal of Itrian followed by an election. Itrian had no choice but to accept, as Vurilia's democratic failsafes prevented Sedrua's leader from holding total control. As Itrian was removed from his position in the government, the election that succeeded chose Vurilia to take over as leader. Initially, Vurilia thought he was not worthy to take up the position, but undying support told him otherwise. He willingly and graciously accepted the title as Sedrua's leader, seeking to reform the nation into a more ideal state. Hardly any resistance was seen as Vurilia ascended to Sedrua's highest rank.

While Vurilia gained almost all of his support back, his ideals hardly budged. In fact, they strayed further and further from the status quo with each following year. The new laws he enacted were not only biased towards Novel Aeternalism, but they also showed little regard for traditionalism. He believed that Sedrua's future relied on a futuristic belief, one which pushed forward technology and balancing it with Thaumaturgy. Vurilia's peers noticed this early on, though most assumed that it was a temporary ideological phase. Many argued against it as well, citing that it would be detrimental to national tradition. Opposition was primarily ignored, and Vurilia kept pushing his beliefs in the government and across society. Thousands of years of slow growing tensions resulted from Vurilia's deviance. His own siblings even saw suspicion, and used every chance they had to condemn progressive beliefs.

The crux of all tension arrived when Vurilia removed the boundaries between common man and leader. Anyone with the skill could rise to the top of Sedrua's government, which was filled with Architects at the time. Conservative leaders were very much paranoid, as those without Thaumaturgy had less fundamental understanding of Sedrua's mechanisms. Vurilia's success on the path to federalization worried oligarchs and company owners as well, perceiving that Vurilia would put an end to their wealth and power. The culmination of this tension released during a meeting of the Sedruan senate. Vurilia brought up a proposition to fully federalize Sedrua and bring its relations closer to its former adversaries. Over half of those in the senate seats stood up, and ruthlessly began to attack Vurilia's supporters. The room exploded into chaos as over one hundred people were killed in the firefight. Vurilia had no choice but to fight back, but was deterred after being targeted by many Architects. He fled the situation, effectively removing his attachment to his leadership and honor.
