Nyrissa is a powerful nymph of the fey realm of the First World. She fell in love with one of the Eldest, the rulers of the realm. She grew in power, earning the title of Nymph Queen, and eventually proclaimed herself to be a new member of the Eldest.

The existing Eldest opposed her claim and sent a Jabberwock to kill her. She managed to survive that attack (and later used the blood to create a Lesser Jabberwock), but was forced to submit to other punishments.

Her Eldest lover was exiled to the Plane of Shadow.[1] The only Eldest known to have been exiled to the Plane of Shadow is Count Ranalc,[2] but there is no evidence that he was Nyrissa's lover.

Nyrissa has a long-standing plot to transfer that portion of the Material Plane that is coterminous with her fey realm of Thousandbreaths into the First World. She hopes that such a coup would appease the Eldest. This has dire implications for the material lands concerned, which form part of the River Kingdoms.[3]

The bastard sword Briar, which is ranked as a major artifact, was created out of her emotions.[4]
