Rin burning and in ruins after the Charr invasion

Description

Rin is the official Seat of the King and capital of the Kingdom of Ascalon. It is located on the western side of the kingdom, south of the Nolani Academy.

Rin became capital when Drascir, the ancient former capital, fell into the hands of the Charr long ago.

Since the Searing Rin now also lies in ruins. Ascalon City has effectively taken over as the unofficial capital of Ascalon. However, King Adelbern still holds his throne in Rin and continues to organize the defense against the Charr from there with his son Prince Rurik.


Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Prophecies.


In the PvE campaign, during the Nolani Academy mission, players find out that Rin was burned by the Charr under Bonfaaz Burntfur and was about to fall into their hands. After saving the city with the aid of players and the legendary horn Stormcaller, Prince Rurik and many Ascalons decide to flee their homeland through the Northern Shiverpeaks and accept the invitation of shelter in Kryta.

Rin is also one of the three destinations to which the Lich Lord sends his army of Titans during the last two missions of the game.


Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Nightfall.


The quest A New Guide makes reference to investors from Rin, which could mean it has begun to rebuild after the Charr were driven off. However, since the quest giver does not realize that he himself is a ghost it is likely that he died before the Searing and has no knowledge of current events in Ascalon.

Trivia

The Rinblade is named after this city.

Rin (referred to as just R by her shipmates) was a lieutenant commander on the USS Dawnstar (NCC-63571). (Star Trek: Zealous)

Early life

Rin grew up in an orphanage on Cait where she led a miserable childhood. She was outcast by the other children in the orphanage for being a half-breed. After many failed escape attempts, finally at the age of 8 she managed to escape. For years she lived on the streets just getting by. When a Starfleet vessel landed on Cait, Rin, seeing her chance to get away, stowed away on board; however it was not long until she was found. Seeing how downtrodden she was, however, the commanding officer took pity on her and let her join the crew until they reached their destination of the Romulan Neutral Zone. On board, she excelled, showing ingenuity and the ability to follow orders precisely. On arriving at the Neutral Zone the commanding officer managed to get her a job on Outpost 23. Again she showed that she could make an impression quickly and after a short while was offered a transfer to Outpost 163 on Cait where she had a more senior role. Ironically, this meant she would return to the planet where she had had just escaped a miserable life.

Career

After much deliberation, Rin decided to take the position. While working back on Cait she met Ebak Sison, who was taking part in the Caitian coming-of-age ceremony. He was then stationed on the USS Zealous and as its crew were taking shore leave on Cait, it meant that Rin was able to see more of him. After he left, despite him spending all of his shore leave on Cait where he proposed and they eventually wed, she still missed him and tried unsuccessfully many times to get a job on board the Zealous. Eventually she gave up and agreed to a transfer to the USS Dawnstar, to which Ebak transferred many years later.
