Yonnik Rhiede is a member of the Stormane, and the son of Queen Dahlia Karayda of Syamorestar and Yannah Rhiede of Nochish.
Due to his conception out of wedlock, Yonnik's childhood was made terrible by his mother's husband, Aythar Karayda, who felt Yonnik's very existence was a stain on his reputation. Since his banishment from Syamorestar after the death of his mother, Yonnik has made developing true and lasting friendships his top priority.
Yonnik never knew his father's family, and has never visited Nochish, for fear of ruining his image of them. In his mind they are the loving, supportive role models he's always missed in his life. If he were to meet them, there is a chance they would prove themselves no better than the family who raised him.
Ignorance is better than rejection.
