Map Empire of Lether

Empire of Lether and its neighbours

Bluerose was a former nation on the continent of Lether that had been conquered and reduced to a protectorate by the Letherii Empire.[1] The nation's name came from a sapphire-colored mineral, intricate as roses, which 'grew' in the caves they inhabited.

Their Tiste Andii ruler-mages were known as Onyx Wizards.[2]

HistoryEdit

While posing as human, its population was secretly of Tiste Andii blood and heritage. They were the descendants of the Tiste Andii under Silchas Ruin, who survived the betrayal by Scabandari and his Tiste Edur after their alliance had defeated the K'Chain Che'Malle. The wounded, stragglers, elders, mothers and children left well behind the field of battle witnessed the betrayal and fled. They were protected in their flight by four barely grown sorcerors, who would become the founders of the Onyx Order. They eluded their pursuers and fashioned a sanctuary beneath the mountains on the shore of the inland sea, in which caves grew mineral 'flowers' of sapphire: Blueroses.

By the time of the reign of the Letherii King Ezgara Diskanar only a few thousand remained. Their nation had been conquered by the Letherii and reduced to a protectorate. As time had passed they became known for their cavalry, and were used as such after being conquered by the Letherii. Unhappy under their new masters, the Bluerose people purposely sabotaged any riding equipment given to their clueless Letherii overlords, who had never mastered horseback riding on their own.

Some Tiste Andii remained among the Edur, spying on behalf of Bluerose. For generations, they would remain as Watchers, avoiding suspicion by bleaching their skin. Ahlrada Ahn, one of these spies, mentioned he would at some point fake his own death so that he could come home to Bluerose, suggesting other Watchers may have done this before him as well.
