Yeah, sorry for the last minute post. My profs decided to front load my courses with readings (300 page to read in 3 days), so that stalled me. I'll try to post earlier, but, by looks of the required readings charts, the next couple of weeks are going to be pretty busy for me.
Ok, in my note search I came across a bit of interesting story stuff. Althena Sunblayze was 453 when we rescued her. This is back on page 4. Now I haven't yet found if the party knows this. So if we are back 1200 years then Althena won't be born for about 800 years. I'll keep looking so Ulthok can correct his statement.

Well I'm sad to see the cat go, but I understand that it was another players familure. The cat was the only other character beside Cor and Ulthok that has been in the entire story. Cor and Ulthok will miss Niamedris so I hope Sirene will recognize that tell them. Both had much interaction with him.
Selfishly I would have rather seen the cat become an NPC after the bond being broken, but it was another player that was playing Sirene that bonded cat. Nimu created Sirene so she knows best for her character.
Ok, so now Allanan says he's not Althena's father. Who is her father and how old is she?
In these posts of the rescue it makes Althena's age in question. She's either 453 or 1218.
Althena Sunblayze: Page 4 But now she was again awake and very much alone.For the first time in her 453 years of life her deepest fear was about to be realized, for if her adopted father King Uthgar did not send help soon, the world of Trilogy was doomed!!.
Page 13 Althena sat alone in her room once again safe and for the moment out of harm�s way. Yet she knew in a little over a week�s time once again in danger would she be. Her only hope and for that matter Trilogy�s only hope would lay in the hands of 9 hearty souls. Once this new group of Special Guard was picked the King would reveal the next mission and the truth of who she really was and her role in Trilogy�s future.
What had her true father told her at her 16th birthday a little over 1200 years ego.??
"There may come a time my fair Althena where you may have to sacrifice everyone around you to gain everlasting peace for this world. Friends, allies and even loved ones may not survive, for when your time comes and make no mistake it will come their lives are meaningless if it means in the end the defeat of good.
After me you are the last of our kind, only in your hands rests the power to defeat him. Remember my words."
She sighed remembering him tall, strong, so very powerful in magic, the greatest of all back then yet oh so very mortal. His leaving at her age of 18 though preordained had left her very much alone and the last surviving Valar on the mainland of Trilogy. Alone she had grown and matured almost in secret lying about her true age for many, many years.
But as foretold the time to act and trust in her fathers vision had come and it would be up to her and 9 others to insure the victory of good in the forth coming war even if it meant she had to sacrifice them all....
I'll keep digging and keep asking.
I'll keep searching for clues, which may or may not be there. Both of the above were not said to the character so they don't know it. All they really know was,
Page 1 "The reality of this mission is that you are to seek the Fate of one Althena Sunblayze ,a close friend of the King and a ward of his court. She is very important for many reasons of which I know not ,but the King looks upon her as he would a daughter."
There may be a little more from the letter in the mountain, but i need to find what she told the party after she read it.
So more to come!

Gotta say I agree that we need to consider the possibility that she was never what she claimed. After all, "treachery was always the greatest weapon of the enemy," is not just some line. It would take planning, but what better way to gain access to the sword?
