The alchemist Artokus Kirran (sometimes spelled Kieran)1 was born in the city-state of Merab, in Thuvia, and it was here that he discovered the formula of the fabled sun orchid elixir in 1140 AR. By law he is the only Thuvian allowed to take the elixir, and its anti-aging property means that he may still be alive today in the Citadel of the Alchemist.
Kirran has not been seen in living memory, but every year, six vials of the elixir are carried forth from the Citadel and taken to be auctioned in one of Thuvia's five city-states.2
