Venat is an Amaurotine found in Elpis.

Venat was a member of the Convocation of Fourteen, the Amaurotine government, and held the seat of Azem for a time. During her civilization's final days, as experienced in the dungeon Amaurot, Venat opposed the summoning of Zodiark and chose instead to sunder her world Etheirys into the Source and thirteen reflections.[1] Unlike most of her compatriots, she herself remained unsundered, and would later become the primal Hydaelyn.

"No more shall man have wings to bear him to paradise. Henceforth, be shall walk."

Originally a scholar of Anyder, Venat held a particular interest in the lives and histories of Etheirys's people. While some academics would be satisfied with the wisdom of tomes alone, Venat's fascination spurred her to venture into the wider world with her beloved familiar, Argos—to hear the star's voice, feel its very breath, and to think of what endless secrets remained undiscovered. Venat's accomplishments were recognized by the Convocation of Fourteen, and she was subsequently granted the seat of Azem. In this capacity, she wandered the star that she might provide succor to those in need.

Even after she found a suitable successor to take up the Traveler's mantle, Venat chose to continue her unending journey, and in the course of it encountered an adventurer from the far future who warned of the Final Days to come. Alas, she was the only ancient who would retain the knowledge of her people's inevitable demise. That one day life might prevail, she sacrificed herself to become the very embodiment of the star's will.

After millennia watching over the sundered Source, Venat—now Hydaelyn—took up arms one final time to take the measure of those who would answer Her question. Her defeat gave Her hope that life would go on, and She died with a smile on Her face and love in Her heart.

A weapon of Venat's own making, the concept for this versatile armament was never registered at the Bureau of the Architect. Allegoria was described not as a single weapon, but several somehow merged into a vessel which could change form in accordance with the wielder's needs in battle. Why Venat chose not to divulge the secrets of its creation is unclear, but perhaps she feared they might fall into the wrong hands at the wrong time.
