Thorsten was one of the early heroes of Dereth. He was an Aluvian warrior who rescued Elysa Strathelar after her escape from the Olthoi. The two became lovers. Thorsten died in 0 PY during the assault on the hive of The One Queen. The Queen stabbed him through the chest, and Elysa retaliated with a single shot from her bow. The arrow, which was coated in an Olthoi-slaying oil, pierced the Queen's eye and killed her.
