Quite possibly the darkest Flawed Reflection of Amber, Embra is an 'Amber' which has fallen to the predations of the Outsiders. The majority of the Royal Family members at the time of Tylor (plus some descendants) are represented there, but they are twisted madmen, slaves to the whims of the Outer Gods and their subordinates. How this Flawed Amber came to be is still a matter of debate. Some say that some fool (quite possibly Annadil himself) opened the Flawed Gate of Revolution ("The Gate Of Night") at the heart of its Flawed Air Pattern, allowing the Outsiders a foothold into our reality. Others darkly hint that perhaps Embra is a reflection of Fuyutsuki's nightmares given form, given his existance at the times of the First and Second Sidar Empires when the Outsiders first became known ...
The first time our Amber became certifiably aware of the existance of Embra was with the attacks by various members of their kin, prompted by Annadil, to supplant the current Royal Family. This prompted a response by Derith to seal Embra and its tainted people within a massive cross-shadow dome, a titanic effort that only a pattern master of his skill, with the Jewel of Judgement, could accomplish.
Embra itself has been witnessed by only a handful of the Royal Family -- and most of them have no desire to return, given its twisted nature. Fuyutsuki, Mikage, Miki, and Nagisa visisted its Flawed Air Pattern (a purple distorted rose on a duelling platform) briefly to check its state at the beginning of the crisis, and narrowly avoided being killed by Embra-Utena. Shizumaru, Michelle, Saionji, and Sakura-Touga visited there breifly while searching for Shizumaru's mother, and learned that its Flawed Metal Pattern had been transformed into a gigantic Yellow Sign. And Kanako apparently had various dealings with those within the dome, offering sanctuary to the few who could hopefully be saved.
The dome itself has stood for over 140 years, but recent events indicate that there are those who seek to breach the dome to release its plague once more. The final fate of Embra has yet to be written ...
Known Survivors (who don't suck)
- Cyberdoll Sara, a bodyguard/enforcer/sex-toy for Schaft of Embra who happens to resemble Moonshade and is powered by that world's Flawed Metal Jewel. She was freed by Kanako and escaped servitude.
Known Survivors (who are hopefully stuck in the Dome)
- Embra-Anthy : Some flawed version of Anthy who was possibly in thrall to Annadil, and had some sort of relationship to Embra-Utena.
- Embra-Tylor, aka "The King In Yellow" : A version of King Tylor, wearing a yellow comedy mask, given totally over to the pleasures and ennui the Outsiders profess to grant those who serve them.
- Embra-Corrine : This flawed shadow ambushed Corrine and Shaft while they were cockatrice-hunting in Arden. She proved to be a deadly shot with a crossbow, and favored trump-trap arrows.
- Embra-Miki : Tried to kill Shinobu early on.
- Embra-Utena : Short haired and much more butch, she tried to kill Mikage, Nagisa, Miki, and Fuyutsuki in Nog'na-Tir, Embra's flawed shadow of Tir.
- Embra-Shaft, aka "Schaft": A variant of Shaft, still a player, but also possessing of a keen technical mind -- he was responsible for the design of Sara. He was beaten down and taken captive by Kanako's team early on in this crisis.
Unknown State (due to being unseen or barely mentioned in the campaigns)
It is believed there are flawed versions of the original Children of the Elements present (and their loves and possibly descendants), but we don't have hard data.
Unknown State (But we wish they were dead)
- Embra-Drake, aka "The Man with the Silver Arm" : A shadow of Drake who apparently got cybernetics of some sort to work, his left arm is silver, and he was one of the first to attack the Children of the Elements. He outfought Shizumaru in his day, and he wields a shadow of Werewindle. His horse seemed to be intelligent and doesn't take his rider as seriously as he takes himself. His current state is unknown, but presumed to be sealed behind the dome.
- Embra-Derith : Possibly the first shadow-Derith to be killed (?), he successfully exploited the debacle that was Kozue and Madoka's Rose Duel at the beginning of the Annadil Crisis, and then attempted to take over Rebma. He then got smacked down and lost his arm to Werewindle.
- Embra-Wakaba, aka "Jade Mask" : A serpent-themed sorceress (perhaps a patron of the Outsider-Serpent-God Yig?) who was involved in drug smuggling in Amber. Shaft chopped off her right arm and claimed her Lion Spikard, which was then later destroyed.
- Embra-Yuriko, aka "The Queen in Yellow" : Passive, drugged-out consort of Embra-Tylor, usually wearing a tragedy mask. Got shot to death by Angus of Avalon with his Logrusfoil-Crossbow.
- Embra-Touga : A mysterious man who had formed an alliance with Kanako to deal with the Embran Dome, he died in the Logruswrack when Kanako Hall detonated.
- Embra-Makoto : Tried to plug Embra-Nanami into a Great Machine. Got killed by Embra-Touga in the process.
- Embra-Nanami : The comatose High Priestess of the Unicorn of Embra, she was rescued by Embra-Touga, Kanako, and Yomiko before she could be used by her brother for some horrible technomantic purpose. She too is dead, lost to the destruction of Kanako Hall.
- Lina Inversed : The Embran shadow of Court Mage Lina, this version of her was apprently totally broken by having witnessed Things Man Was Not Meant To Know, and lost her capacity for magic in the process. However, she was a deadly shot with a cold-iron shotgun. She is now dead.
- Embran Flawed Metal Jewel -- Implanted within Cyberdoll Sara, used to enhance her with M3TAL POWAHS.
- Embran Flawed Fire Jewel -- Taken from Lina Inversed by Shaft, used to draw Shamber by Shaft (and later repaired by Jaqueline), and served (and still serves?) as the computational core of Morgenstern.
- Embran Flawed Water Jewel -- Owned by Embra-Derith, current state unknown.
The other Flawed Jewel's statuses are unknown.
- Embran Flawed Werewindle -- Owned by Embra-Drake, current state unknown.
The other Flawed Patternblade's statuses are unknown.
