The Devil may care sex icon of the tale may be a pinch over 50,000 years and just short of insane from dimensional travel, but a mix of superb wit, intellect, and carnal desires drives her onwards all the same. Incapable of truly dying, Relicia spends her omnipotent years seeking adventure, spreading disorder and having thorough sex with just about anything to pacify her lusty fires. Relicia has recently turned her attention to the events of Genma Visage, claiming it to be the most fun she's ever had despite her rough history with Nishin Genma.

Relicia was once a princess like her fairer little sister Lumriya. Situated in the lost Libyan dimension over 9000 years ago, Relicia was the daughter of a King who owned a wealthy business in livestock goats. Being filthy rich made Relicia into a stuck up heir to the royal throne. Her mother had died giving birth to Lumriya, and it was only with her sibling that Relicia felt kinship. In her 24th year, Relicia's father attempted to donate the sisters for Nishin Genma's experiments, hoping to transform his daughters into the perfect goddess rule his kingdom. After the king was murdered, the experiments backfired and the Libyan dimension wiped out of existence, Relicia had long escaped to Earth's dimension to live among the men of the Neolithic world. Since then, very rarely does Relicia use profanity, but when she does it's almost always brought on by the subject of her father, whom she describes as "a miserable dickhead".

Relicia had already been studying various forms of magic and alchemy, and although she was deprived of her former libraries, she soldiered on with what she knew, hoping to one day find a cure for a monstrous sister who had long forgotten about her. Chronomancy was Relicia’s primary talent, and in order to achieve the highest state of plain, she surgically implanted her trademark 3-horned crown into her skull. Each horn represents, in her words, the 3 totems of chronomancy; Law, Disorder, and the forbidden path of Recreation. Spending a lifetime in despair and isolation, she tried to perfect her art. By the old age of 80, Relicia had been driven insane by her thwarted ambitions and senility. In that silent cave in the most remote and isolated spot of the desert, Relicia quietly passed away. In one last-ditch effort to master Chronomancy, however, her last incantations took hold of her very being. Tearing into the very fabric of space and time, the chronomancy that brewed in her cadaver tapped into a single heartbeat of the cardiacal bellowing of the universe and bestowed Relicia with nigh Omnipotent invulnerability and immortality.

Not only would any mortal wound, injury or disease quickly heal, but her body was restored to her young beautiful adulthood, and permanently dying her hair a blood red colour and her eyes a golden hazle. Overwhelmed with sheer joy, Relicia realised the chances of this happening was a highly unreliable one in infinity, making her the luckiest person in the universe. But there were several catches to her powers. She couldn't have children, her offensive chronomancy magic was incapable of destroying her enemies and in truth, Chronomancy was not what she expected. The real essence of the art had nothing to do with effecting past or future as it did to manipulating the present and travelling across dimensions and vast plains in the universe especially those affected by the ripples in time. Undeterred, however, the immortal Relicia realised she literally had all the time in the universe to cure her sister Lumriya.

But after 50,000 years across time and other dimensions, Relicia could never find a way to pacify Lumriya’s predicament, and she eventually gave up. Whilst she tried to help Lumriya whenever she could, Relicia was soon reminded that there was no cure and for a while she would merely view her sister as a vehicle for bringing down the “thrones of ignorance”. Relicia had originally set up the cult of Lamia as a charity to aid her sister and those affected by her onslaughts but with Relicias dying moral, over the ages this became, a religion that celebrated magic, hedonistic pleasures, anti-authoritarianism, self-realisation and much more, with the motto of variety being the spice of life. As Relicia could not die, the years quickly fuelled her monstrously depraved sex addiction that makes even the deepest of hell's demons balk, and her sexy curves were more than helpful when making many heads of kings swim as she took down their kingdoms.

Her name and the pleasures she could grant were a fabled legend even to gods, notably stirring up the mythology of the Scarlet Whore of Babylon. The inner circles and royal bloodlines of Nishin Genma also knew of Relicia, and feared the truth would threaten the very foundations of their regime. They destabilised Relicia's existence by spreading a highly misaligned bedtime story across Shurokiu folklore to scare children, including the nursery rhyme "what's got red hair and rapes young men in the night?" As such, wherever she could, Relicia took the chance to spite Nishin Genma and avenge what they did to Lumriya.

Despite normally favouring the efforts of protagonists, the debate goes on regarding Relicia’s loyalty. Is she truly a benefit to mankind and the other races, is she the face of Mother Nature herself, or something much worse? Those in the Cult of Lumriya naturally worship her as a goddess and a wakeup call for the suppressed. However her often amoral actions and playful attitude with the seriousness of humanity’s affairs has more than created friction in some circles. Ryuken has sheer contempt for her. Not only did she date-rape him in a vulnerable state during the Britonum, according to Ryuken, she deliberately avoided seeking Shurokiu help in favour of allowing the transformed Lumriya unleash the destruction and chaos that Relicia loved so much upon her enemies. In doing so countless innocents perished and Lumriya continued to suffer. As Ryuken sees it, if Relicia’s face launched a thousand sails, she would rebuke any responsibility regarding their fate and those around them. Though Relicia has never committed any direct crimes of murder and genocide, her presence in those areas can be seen as a deliberately intended catalyst, but there is always more than one side to the story.

Time will tell if Relicia’s anarchic philosophy can ever truly be pinned down in writing, but one thing is for certain. Wherever she goes, whatever the pleasure that Relicia's presence may bring, chaos will always follow...
