Name: Mewt Mavet (mew-t mah-vet)
Current Residence: Innercity, Maweth
Hometown: Sunstella, Chendre
Dictator of Maweth, the superpower of the continent Chellabra, Mewt Mavet likes one thing: power. Oh, and ambition. Ok, also robots, that's a new one.
Once upon a time, he was an orphan, subsisting on the church's gracious generosity - and then a general, a member of Chendre's military coup, and then - well, it only took a few years for Chellabra to fall under his thumb. Check 'continental domination' off the list, and what's next? Meet the gods, kill the gods, take over the world, tend to it in his image? Par for the course, just give him another century or so to get the plan in action. Consuming the Flames of an Ardor god should tell you his estimated success, shouldn't it?
When not scheming to further his ambitions, Mewt spends his hours as the god-king of Chellabra - a continent covered in mountainous desert and badland, inhospitable to most settlements. But they need not fear - for Mewt uses his magic to purify water sources, enrich the soil, and provide raw materials for his subjects to use - centralizing himself as Maweth's benefactor, god, and protector. He is worshipped without question within Maweth, and devotion of him runs deep. He's no sadist, really - he derives joy from being needed and providing for people, smothering them and ensuring their well-being... and ensuring that they know Mewt gave it to them.
Chronic pain takes a bite out of his exploits, though, as the stress of hosting so much Flame in a mortal body leaves him often stained. His rule is often carried out by the Dewclaws, his private handmaidens and personal cult, spread out over Maweth.
Dominion of Totality, Heavenly Ardor Flame
Combination of the Flames: Pure Black Flame, Dominion of Sand & Pure Blue Flame, Dominion of Tide & Sweet Pink Flame, Dominion of Sunrise
This Flame manifests as an aura of passive, gentle mind control that encourages people around him to submit to him, obey his orders, and seek to please him. He can amplify this effect if he concentrates, but cannot turn it off completely. People under its influence do not realize they are being mind-altered until they are free of the aura. The aura passes through walls and becomes "thicker" in places Mewt frequents, even if he is not currently present.
Dominion of Crystals
Combination of the Flames: Sparkling Stark Blue Flame, Dominion of Gems & Dividing Gray Flame, Dominion of Control
This Flame allows him to generate gemstones, fill them with raw magic right away, or alter existing ones - either to be other types of stones, color-changing, or anything he chooses, really. This is actually kind of a useless power because Maweth mines gemstones to trade regardless, but Mewt is proud of it.

Relationship: THAT'S HIS WIFE!!!!
Jrigette, a robot, is incapable of being influenced by Mewt's mind-control. And he walks around with a powerful Dominion under his belt, self- forged and all. He's an improbable lil' statistical anomaly and he's got a stupid big hopeful ideal to back it up, all wide-eyed and in love with the world and wanting to make it better. Taking care of Jrigette is like a drug - when he wins, when Jrigette takes a break, when Jrigette spends precious time with him - without the cloud of his mind-altering, knowing it's real... hah. Whew.
Relationship: Technically, we're in this together
He and Via go way back, right around when he devoured Mewrune's Flames. Via showed up all flushed and shocked that another "reincarnation" had appeared, and filled Mewt in with all the juicy details of what was going on. They worked together for a while before Via realized the scope of his ambitions, and now Via wants to pretend that they were never friends, never allies - wants to toss it all in the trash. But hehe, Mewt's a patient one, and he's not the kind to hold grudges.
Relationship: Loyal Right Hand
His foremost Dewclaw, and the one who's been at his side since before the Maweth Unification War. Lux's loyalty is cemented in stone, and it's one Mewt enjoys and relies on often - listening to the whispers Lux brings him, sending Lux personally on missions of import. Mewt wouldn't really call him a 'friend', nah - he's more like a really friendly servant? - but friend's a loaded word anyways, anyhow.
Eheheheh, this guy. Never quite liked that Mewt made him bend the knee during the Unification War, did he? But he saw what happened to the ones that didn't surrender. He's been cooking up schemes to undermine Maweth's authority in the vassal states ever since, bitterly spitting on Mewt's authority, but he isn't bothered. Bastet is a gnat; insignificant and enjoyable to swat away when it gets too annoying.
Nerrosa... Mewt knows he's in Lacraya now, somewhere, with the old library they used to giggle and gossip in. He doesn't really hold a grudge, per se, nor does he really pine after Nerrosa. In the end, the world will be his, and Nerrosa will be part of that - just another soul in his arms. But it feels uncomfortable to think about how close they once were, and how badly their relationship fell apart. In all honesty, haha, Mewt's still not one-hundred-percent sure what ticked Nerrosa off.

♥♥♥♡♡ Kit Kisse
Relationship: Loyal Left Hand
Heheh, he always enjoys another delivery of Flame brought by Kit Kisse to his throne. Efficient, but not a cold machine - the best combination. Seeing him and Lux catfight always brings some spice to a day, too, though Mewt's gotta keep em a little separate if he wants Maweth to keep running smoothly.
Relationship: Sucks to have been you!
Hahaha holy shit if what Via said was true, that's just a cavalcade of laughs. Wah wah, so lonely after what happened to Reewah, no point in living. Come on - either put your eggs in a basket that doesn't die, or prep for proper necromancy next time. He's not stupid enough to think gods are unkillable, so why were you?
Relationship: Object of Interest
He's seen this guy around... pulling important Evenne POI from Chellabra, out from under Mewt's mind-altering. It sparks the curiosity, don't it? The guy's obviously of Evenne heritage and has some ability to resist Flames, clearly. Look at his little serious frowns, too... heheh, it gets him all worked up to think about how much of a threat he's become to the mystical island.
Relationship: "Romantic Rival"
It's in quotation marks because, frankly, Mewt knows he's first in Jrigette's heart. Cin's just a stuckup little Iah-Yah bitch who hasn't an idea of how to care for him and his unique needs - he doesn't even cross Mewt's mind as competition. However, it's definitely annoying that he keeps fucking kidnapping Jrigette off Chellabra and paying off different groups to do it. Self-important cunt's gonna start a war if he ain't careful.
- Has a hoard of shiny and rare artifacts and objects - mostly enchanted items, but some collector's pieces from early in Flameverse's history. Happy to hand them out to loyal followers.
- Even without the god-magic, he was always a freakishly good mage.
- Is aware Evenne exists, wants to get on it very badly.
- Binomial names are a normal naming convention in Chellabra, and Mewt Mavet's prefix was incredibly common before his rise to power. Now it's seen as egotistical to name your child after a living god and has fallen out of use.
- Mewt invented the language of Purren and helped make it widespread through use of his Totality Flame.
- Not interested in robots as a whole (except for the fact that only Lurifax can make them), just likes Jrigette.

- The bio jokes about him being a cat but it's just a turn of phrase, he's not a cat anthro.
- No pants. Too much effort to put on with how hard getting out of bed already is!
- He wears stockings, look in the gallery if you need a ref.
- The swirl markings on his thighs go down his entire legs and twist/wriggle if you stare at them. Also note the tail markings.
- Usually lookin' smug.
