The Modern Verus Family

Modern members of the Verus clan are for the most part separated from the original bloodline and continue to hold promise. The late Aerie Verus, the last biological heiress of the Verus, adopted Sora Verus, the current head of house and the Queen of Varrock. Josh Verus, Aerie's biological child and Sora's adoptive brother, is currently estranged, leaving Estelle Verus, Aerie's mother, as the only biological member of the historical Verus family left.

 Sora Verus, the Queen of Varrock 


Aliases: Sora, Queen of Varrock

Gender: Female

Age: 37

Birthplace: Rellekka

Appearance: 5ft, 3in, 110 lbs; Sora has lilac eyes, a somewhat pale complexion, and long red hair that is often kept up in public. She is usually seen wearing long, lavish dresses, although when not in public she often dresses simpler. She is attractive and appears to be younger than she is.

Personality: Sora is largely a calm, quiet, and introverted person behind closed doors. She often spends hours alone, in her private quarters, doing paperwork and reading. She is also quite shy, though it is hard to tell when she is in her role as Queen, as she acts witty, extremely serious, and cynical. She is, however, a nice and loving person at heart. Some of her biggest flaws stem from her distrust, quick judgement, and sometimes bad temper. When she is outside of her Kingdom, she is very agreeable and mild mannered.

Allegiance: Varrock, her husband, Zamorak (to an extent)

Equipment: Though Sora is rarely on the battlefield, she often carries a small, decorated dagger somewhere on her person wherever she goes. She is also usually accompanied by one of her Queens Guard. When she is on the battlefield, she wears a set of (mostly decorative) silver armour adorned with the green and turquoise Verus house sigil, a dragon in the shape of a spread mockingbird.

Goal(s): To unite the Kingdom of Varrock, be a successful and well liked leader, and to largely limit the suffering of people.

Misc. Information:

- Sora has four children. Laena and Visenya are twins, fathered by her own father via an incestuous relationship (unknown to Sora at the time). Cassius and Bronwyn are fathered by Darius. She and her husband are currently trying for one last child. 

- Sora’s favorite color is turquoise and she is rarely seen wearing any other color.

- Sora is fluent in four languages: Common tongue, Fremmenik, Elven, and Karamjan. - Due to her first language being Fremmenik, she has a slight Northern accent that has almost entirely faded, save for when she’s angry.

- The eldest member of Sora’s Queens Guard, 55 year old Casper Silverhill, has been with her since she arrived in Varrock eleven years ago. She views him as a father figure and is often seen with him at her side during errand running around the castle. He is always with her whenever she travels, no matter the distance. She will not travel without him.

Social Status: Sora is very wealthy, mostly from inherited money and business from her adopted mother, a former Queen of Varrock. Among other small investments, Sora owns several successful vineyards in Falador and Edgeville. She gives a large portion of money acquired from her business to orphanages and the poor.
