edited December 2012 in Harpy's Head Tavern
I'm having a bit of trouble right now figuring out what I want to do with Aldric, so I decided it'd be a good idea to dissect him a bit and see if it helps. I remember seeing this thread on the old forums, so I figured why not bring it back!

Character Name: Aldric Adariel

THE ESSENTIALS

Race: Azudim
Gender: Male
Guild/House: Bahkatu
City: Duiran
Order: Haern

THE LOOK

Hair: Short, black hair that extends down the sides of his face to make a beard.
Eyes: Slate grey 
Height: Tall
Build: Bulky and wide, juggernaut style
Defining Features: Small horns on top of his head, tribal markings scattered all around his skin.
Clothing: Always wearing a black cloak, usually pants and a shirt of whatever he grabs at the time.
Tattoos: They're not tattoos, but as said above, he's got tribal markings scattered all over his body.
Piercings: None
Scars: None

PERSONALITY

Strengths: Not afraid to speak his mind, gets things done when focused upon it, very protective of those he cares about, good leader
Weaknesses: Can sometimes be too abrasive, not too terribly good at phrasing things delicately, can be impulsive.
Attitude: Prior to going Azudim Aldric was a blunt smartass that really didn't care so much about what other people thought. Since then I've somewhat eased up on this (got rid of the accent people seem to hate too) though I'd like to see that mentality still evident in him. 
Morals: Ends justify the means. You should strive to protect the innocent, but ultimately if some need to die for the greater good of something, that's how it has to be.
Pet Peeves: Clinginess, blatant displays of public stupidity, ineptness in leadership
Best way to piss me off: Provoke/demean him. He's very defensive.
Best way to get on my good side: Drink with him, talk, be a solid presence

FAVORITES

Color: Black
Profession: Monk
Profession Skill: Tekura - Backbreaker
General Skill: PURGE BODY
Location: His Haven
God/Goddess: Haern, no doubt
Guild Master/House Head (all time): Tough one. Probably Daskalos, in the Luminaries.
Tattoo: Boar
Artifact (don't have to own): a flowing black cloak: adaptation+polymath+enhancement
Commodity: wood
Animal: Serpent of any type, really
Item owned: A macabre, skull-topped quarterstaff 
Village/forest/region: Southern part of the Aureliana
NPC: Istinista
Memory: The days spent in Spinesreach with Taela when he didn't have anything to worry about
Song: Any drinking song
Drink: Rum

MINDSET

Goals: Make a comfortable life for himself. Lead a guild again and help it become something.
Amibitions: Find a place he's truly content to be, contribute, and become a valuable member of said place
Nemesis: Lexen
Rival: I really don't think Aldric has any rivals
Best Friend: Used to be Tasp, but he hasn't seen her in ages
Idol: Kiyotan
Best personal achievement: Becoming the guildmaster of the Syssin. 
Worst personal achievement: Pursuit of a place within Maghak's Order, despite not liking the god or believing in his ways. There was a weird sort of tension there that was beyond fun to RP though.
Proudest moment: Earning his place within Haern's Order this last time.
Most shameful moment: Burning Enorian, or hypnotizing Taela to believe that the two had no relationship potential after Lexen disapproved of their near-marriage.
Secret dream: To be able to murder Lexen, permanently, tied with being able to see Enorian destroyed.
If I could make one wish..: For everything to magically arrange itself to a point where he'd be in a place he's completely content.

    Guild/House: Cabalists
    City: Spinesreach

    Character Name: Zun

    THE ESSENTIALS
    Race: Human
    Gender: Male
    Guild/House: Syssin
    City: Spinesreach
    Order: Maghak

    THE LOOK
    Hair: Black, cropped close to scalp- as if shorn off and left to grow, slightly.
    Eyes: Blue, with severe cataracts.
    Height: Around 6'0.
    Build: He's muscle and fat, on a youthful frame.
    Defining Features: It's hard to say, he has a very specific look- but maybe his undeadness? Zombierific.
    Clothing: He wears an outfit like a Glasglow thug, or a skinhead. Suspenders. Undershirt with sleeves pulled up. Polished boots.
    Tattoos: None.
    Piercings: None.
    Scars: A few all around, mostly on his scalp, from where his hair was forcibly removed while he was kicking and screaming; his blood was the only lather used.

    PERSONALITY
    Strengths: A lot of room to grow! But honestly, he's an abrasive youth- so most of his strengths are dressed up flaws. He /tries/. He's /emotional/. But, he has a price, for nearly everything. So there's that?
    Weaknesses: When he isn't angry, he's usually smug- cocksure. He'll start fights for the hell of it. He's all bravado and bluff. And his past, his upbringing, has left his psyche covered in a lattice of rich scars. 
    Attitude: He'll treat the world with an ironic grin, usually having a whale of a time. He'll watch, or listen to anything as if had a right to be there- and he'll defend that right with aforementioned bluster.
    Morals: The world is one big unicorns up of a performance; pick your role, play it well, and make it to the final act. This is shifting, as he grows close to people, forms bonds he's never had to or had the opportunity to. But underneath it all, he's the Butcher in Red.
    Pet Peeves: When people act over emotional, or self-entitled.
    Best way to piss me off: Anything. (Seriously: call him 'sir', or try to inquire as to his past)
    Best way to get on my good side: Grin along with him, back down when he puts his chest out. Or be, inexplicably, stubborn and endearing. And treat him like a real person. He may act a part, a two-dimensional cut out, but see beneath that and he'll respect you for it.

    FAVORITES
    Color: Blue
    Profession: Syssin
    Profession Skill: Subterfuge - Phase
    General Skill: TELESENSE
    Location: His apartment 'within a cozy, crowded den', The Phoenix Cafe, or Brass Monkey Imports.
    God/Goddess: He doesn't have one.
    Guild Master/House Head (all time): Klonk, Syssin.
    Tattoo: Bell
    Artifact (don't have to own): a silver scalpel artifact customized in a cleaver!
    Commodity: ?
    Animal: Eh. He's an urban creature. Nothing?
    Item owned: a heavy set of metal and mahogany dice
    Village/Forest/Region: Delve, though he hates it the most too.
    NPC: None.
    Memory: His first kiss with Piper.
    Song: He vaguely remembers several, heard from corners and doorstops of the urban maze. He puts them together, owns them. They are his favorite. The voice of the City.
    Drink: Vodka.

    MINDSET
    Goals: Idreth. Become a man known for his labor, for being reliable.
    Amibitions: God, splitting hairs here aren't we? Uh. No longer wanting to be the Butcher.
    Nemesis: Elanth.
    Rival: Raeche, maybe?
    Best Friend: Piper! Urgh, gross.
    Idol: Aarbrok.
    Best personal achievement: his first, only, real murder. 
    Worst personal achievement: inciting Elanth to perform certain actions.
    Proudest moment: becoming a comrade of Spinesreach.
    Most shameful moment: being almost-yeah-sort-of-caught spying on the Cabalists.
    Secret dream: In the warrens of Delve, fog and smoke and ash, against a burnt building's skeleton, he fights back. With the strength of more than a child- he resists, he says no, he is more. And he kills them, every one of them. He leaves and never looks back.
    If I could make one wish...: his own phase, another slice of reality carved not from within or without but a third, a private space over all spaces. GTFO, other Syssins.

    Character Name: Piper

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Human 
    Gender: Female
    Guild/House: Syssin
    City: Spinesreach
    Order: Maghak Congregation

    THE LOOK

    Hair: Chemically bleached/altered and painstakingly styled into blonde layers and waves, think Veronica Lake. However, Her hair naturally dark (as her roots show) and is incredibly curly, tending to twist up into a mane of corkscrews when wettened. 
    Eyes: Slanted Glacier-blue and typically cosmetically made up. 
    Height: About 5'1'' or so.
    Build: Short and curvy with a ghetto booty. 
    Defining Features: The sharp contrast of her pale eyes and hair against the dark nut brown color of her skin and her wide, pronounced lips.
    Clothing: Fond attachment to purple, she wears a lot of things that glitter and shimmer. Typically pants and shirts. Zun's longcoat.
    Tattoos: None.
    Piercings: Nose and labret piercing.
    Scars: None.

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: Piper's still young and trying to figure out what she wants out of life but she's noticably capable of being able to roll with the punches. Doesn't get herself trapped due to crippling senses of loyalty. Pragmatic but still able to dip into silliness or bravado when the situation calls for it. 
    Weaknesses: Terrible sportsmanship, Piper is a sore loser and is quick to get angry whenever approached with it something negative. Has a potty mouth and tends to slip into street slang when she forgets herself. Too curious.
    Attitude: Piper's described herself, once, as the spunky heroine of some sort of novel and that's how she tends to act. Everything is or is leading up to an adventure and she -deserves- to be a part of it.
    Morals: What morals? Don't get caught and don't gamble with anything you don't want to risk losing. Don't like someone? Add their name to your hitlist and take them out someday when you won't get in trouble.
    Pet Peeves: Being treated in a condescending manner. Being called 'dear', 'doll' or any other pet name. Using her real name against her. Losing. 
    Best way to piss me off: All of the above and then some. Piper's kind of a firecracker underneath all of her easygoing qualities.
    Best way to get on my good side: Shining things, gemstones and glassware. Having grown up with no money for frivolries, she's developed a soft spot for riches. Going on an adventure with her.

    I don't play that much anymore, but even on a casual basis this sort of thread is irresistible to me. :D

    Character Name: Edhain de Verdigris

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Yeleni
    Gender: Male
    Guild/House: Templars
    City: Enorian
    Order: Dhar

    THE LOOK

    Hair: thick, black, and coarse - currently shoulder length in a raggedy way, but he cuts it closer whenever he feels like it. He also has a long, wispy goatee of which he is secretly proud.
    Eyes: black
    Height: around the height of a tall human, despite being Yeleni
    Build: angular and sharp, lean - almost gaunt
    Defining Features: he doesn't really have any specifically defining feature, it's more of the whole narrow boniness and darkness that seems to define him. 
    Clothing: the most consistent pieces of clothing he wears is a tattered greatcloak with a hood that was torn in a drunken barfight with Xavin when Enorian lost a war, and of course the Anaxagorite chain he's worn almost his whole life
    Tattoos: a silver tree on his back
    Piercings: none
    Scars: none currently - he used to have a great many and be pretty much disfigured, but it all smoothed away when he became Yeleni

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: intelligent, determined, strong moral compass
    Weaknesses: tendencies towards being emo, arrogant, and rudely stubborn. Since his "sojourn" as he calls it he's become more politely stubborn and developed a new weakness of being too detached. Further, he tends to have a difficult time forgiving and forgetting.
    Attitude: generally reserved in terms of not giving people his thoughts when it's unnecessary. However, he makes a concentrated effort to be kind and courteous.
    Morals: his morals are heavily biased towards natural law and thus condemn Undeath. He believes very strongly in the sanctity of life and death, and values the idea of absolute justice in a truly Dharite fashion. He has a slew of other speciific morals but that's probably the most important to him.
    Pet Peeves: it's hard to think of a "pet" peeve with him, honestly. There's a lot of things he doesn't like but he doesn't really get upset about them unless they're serious, and in that case it tends to not be a "pet" peeve. 
    Best way to piss me off: oppress or murder the innocent
    Best way to get on my good side: be honorable and brave as a fighter or intelligent, pro-active, and helpful as a noncombatant. Another thing he sincerely values in people is kindness, but that's difficult because most kind people look like hypocrites to him (i.e., bashing stuff that he doesn't think deserves to be bashed)

    FAVORITES

    Color: Verdigris
    Profession: Templar
    Profession Skill: Doublestrike
    General Skill: Squint
    Location: there's been several locations that were special to him through his life, but lately the place he hangs out the most is probably either the barracks forge or the campfire at the refugee camp in the Liruma
    God/Goddess: Dhar
    Guild Master/House Head (all time): Hadoryu
    Tattoo: Tree
    Artifact (don't have to own): bone plated archery bracers - sip 2, soul anchor, endurance regen
    Commodity: steel
    Animal: his warhorse, Ghost
    Item owned: a battered orb the dwarves of Tainhelm sent him after the village was liberated from Bloodloch in a war
    Village/forest/region: he feels a gloomy kinship with Mrenadh, but it's not his favorite due to the feelings he has surrounding it. Probably Tainhelm.
    NPC: he really respects Tuiln.
    Memory: he has a lot of different treasures memories that somewhat compete with each other, but probably his favorite is of finally proposing to his wife
    Song: the Enorian battle anthems he used to sing with the troops after victories
    Drink: he still loves whiskey, but he's sworn off alcohol. It's hard for him to stay away from it though, he's kind of like a recovering alcoholic. recently he made a whiskey for Areka and was hard pressed not to indulge.

    MINDSET

    Goals: to do the right thing to do until he dies, under the radar
    Amibitions: he wants to train himself to be a good fighter again because he feels helpless when he's so rusty
    Nemesis: Desian
    Rival: Vryolis
    Best Friend: Vryolis, once
    Idol: he used to have many, but now he has none
    Best personal achievement: winning that first war against Bloodloch by using the geography to place careful formations of fortifications - he hardly won it alone, but that was his part
    Worst personal achievement: abandoning the Paladins over the betrayal of his second-in-command
    Most shameful moment: a failed attempt to abort Kordun, against the mother's - Kellet's - wishes
    Secret dream: to become a peaceful fisherman
    If I could make one wish..: for the Age of Dawn, which he's come to grudgingly think isn't ever going to be in the cards

    Same as Edhain, though I'm contemplating a return once life dwindles down. Stuff happened during my absence and I'm itchy to push forward with it.

    [spoiler]
    Character Name: Seir

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Azudim
    Gender: Male
    Guild/House: Sentinels
    City: Duiran
    Order/Congregation: Haern

    THE LOOK

    Hair: now short, jaggedly and haphazardly cut with a knife. brown with traces of grey from age. Thick stubble covering the bottom portion of his face
    Eyes: black sclera, yellow eyes.
    Height: once taller, his becoming the Nightmare's Claw previously reverted him back to a typical Tsol'aa height. About 5'9"
    Build: lithe, limber. Not much muscle. Spry despite his age and grizzled demeanour
    Defining Features: once his protruding black veins across his body from the remnants of the Bloom. Said remnants are now gone, but the scars remain in visible but not nearly as evident black veins.
    Clothing: tattered sleeveless, brown leather duster with hood. Leather pants. Black bandages across the arms. The mask of bandages is going away.
    Tattoos: None.
    Piercings: Right ear.
    Scars: black veins on his body. No real battle wounds.

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: savage, capable of war leadership and uncompromising stance when it's needed.
    Weaknesses: incapable of forgiveness, quick to anger, reckless, and ashamed of his behavior from living in the past the last few decades as far as his race is concerned
    Attitude: quiet and reserved outside of war with a macabre and twisted sense of humor here and there. Quick to anger when in war and difficult to bring out of said state when roused.
    Morals: no real morals for him as a Sentinel, though he has been known to have empathy and compassion towards children and generally is very displeased when seeing them indirectly affected by war. The same applies when individuals attempt to take advantage of his people, the Tsol'aa, and their affliction from the bloom.
    Pet Peeves: the stagnation of politics above all else. He is a firm believer that action says far more than words ever could. Presuming to know him or the motives behind his actions or reasoning. Most of all, belittling him or his efforts for his loyalties.
    Best way to piss me off: oppression of his race, threaten his brood, jack his lights. Man needs his smokes, yo.
    Best way to get on my good side: contribute in some shape or form towards the betterment of Duiran and it won't matter where you came from or what your past is, he'll accept you unconditionally as an ally.

    FAVORITES

    Color: White
    Profession: Lycanthrope

    Village/forest/region: once the aalen and the morgun, I'd say nowhere now save home.
    NPC: the durdali. Govon in particular.
    Memory: the births of his son and daughter both.
    Drink: absinthe if he still chooses to indulge.

    MINDSET

    Goals: To return once more with a renewed lease upon life and content to live it free of the past.
    Amibitions: none. He has achieved everything he once wished to do.
    Nemesis: None.
    Rival: Tyrak
    Best Friend: Difficult to say now since he's been gone for awhile.
    Idol: Edhain, still to this day.
    Best personal achievement: his contributions that went towards the Duiran war effort twice and achieving victory, something unheard of in Duiran history
    Worst personal achievement: losing a Benandanti election to some 20-year old (even I get miffed about that one)
    Most shameful moment: allowing his past to overwhelm him and who he is for nearly seven decades.
    Secret dream: he has experienced both war and peace. He'd like to see a day when soldiers like him are never necessary again and the latter can reign.
    If I could make one wish..: To be able to go back many years and make peace with the Aalen incident than how long it has taken him now.

    My fellow is quite new, and so I'd like to learn who he is, hence this exercise, which I appreciate.

    Character Name: Dalton Grey

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Mhun
    Gender: Male
    Guild/House: Teradrim, the most ideologically correct guild for him.
    City: Bloodloch, his home away from home.
    Congregation: Iosyne. Formerly Maghak, but Maghak's heavy capitalistic worldview conflicts with his. He likes Iosyne's tenets of equality.

    THE LOOK

    Hair: Brown Hitler Youth haircut.
    Eyes: Sort of a grey/blue/green non-color.
    Height: About 5' 9", 5' 10".
    Build: Limber, but toned. Your classic Mhun.
    Defining Features: Not a lot at present.
    Clothing: Business casual. Dress shirts, vests, slacks. Durable shoes or work boots.
    Tattoos: None where anyone can see.
    Piercings: Small ear gauges.
    Scars: None, at least not until his first Teradrim interview!
    Relevant pics: As a Mhun: [1], [2]. Earthen form: [1], [2].

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: Respect of authority, tenacious and good-hearted.
    Weaknesses: Blunt, crude, perhaps too easy-going for people he isn't familiar with.
    Philosophy/Attitude: Nihilistic. Crude for crudeness' sake. From what I understand of the character Zun, they would probably be a lot alike.
    Political view: Heavily Communist.
    Morals: Everyone bleeds the same. Hard work is akin to godliness.
    Pet Peeves: Being asked to moderate his language. Fear of words is a pretty pathetic fear to him.
    Best way to piss me off: See above.
    Best way to get on my good side: Unsure of this as well. Everyone seems to be on his good side.

    FAVORITES

    Color: Gold. The most sought-after color a mineworker can hope to see.
    Profession: Mason. Very fond of statues and engraved stone.
    Skillset: Animation. Enthralled by golemry and the construction of perfect workers.
    Ability: Overkill.

    God/Goddess: Unsure.
    Guild Master/House Head (all time): Unsure.
    Tattoo: Mountain. From the form, to the endurance recovery, it is very symbolic.
    Artifact (don't have to own): None, yet.
    Commodity: Iron.
    Animal: Scorpion.
    Item owned: Nothing he's attached to, yet.
    Village/forest/region: Moghedu, home sweet home.
    NPC: Venicus, the lich.
    Memory: As of now, becoming undead.
    Song: The Bloodlochian National Anthem.
    Drink: Local beers.

    Nemesis: None, yet.
    Rival: None, yet.

    Idols: Inspired by the "poets, generals, and warrior kings" of history. Sibatti, Desian, Strung, Daskalos, etc., for players; Baelak Shipbreaker, the Autarchs and other leaders of the Dreikathi, etc. for NPCs.
    Best personal achievement: None, yet.
    Worst personal achievement: None, yet.
    Proudest moment: None, yet.
    Most shameful moment: None, yet.
    (Not so) Secret dream: Right now, probably to be a high-ranking political official or military general.
    If I could make one wish..: As an inexperienced Aetolian youth, probably just wealth and fame.

  • DashaDasha Member Posts: 17 ✭✭

    Character Name: Dasha( Ket'Hedj? Wow I've never asked about that in-game. I'm a doofus.)

    THE ESSENTIALS
    Race: Yeleni
    Gender: Female
    Guild/House: Zealot
    City: Duiran
    Congregation: Dhar
    THE LOOK
    Hair: Shoulder-lengthish black hair almost always pulled back into a ponytail.
    Eyes: Blue, then sort of just bright-glowy
    Height: Short
    Build: She started out slight and kind of lanky, but training with the Daru have made her into a pretty well-formed lady!
    Defining Features: Generally, her skin glows. If she gets frightened/etc it fades away, which leaves her looking pretty sallow and deadish.
    Clothing: White Daru gi + the coolest black leather armor ever.
    Tattoos: None.
    Piercings: None
    Scars: None
    PERSONALITY
    Strengths: If people tell her what to do, she can get it done. She works well with a team and takes instruction or reprimandation very well.
    Weaknesses: Afraid of speaking her mind, and frequently can override her own beliefs about a situation to appease others, even if she disagrees with what may be happening.
    Attitude: She likes most everyone and everything, and is virtually always cheerful. That being said, she is wholly committed to the notion of Light, so generally her attempts to purge Undeath by kicking people in the face and/or breaking their backs are undertaken apologetically.
    Morals: Auresae/Daru Purity. You ought to do the right thing, and you ought to do it the right way.
    Pet Peeves: Hypocrisy, as perceived by her.
    Best way to piss me off: Actually, this is pretty hard. Insulting or attacking those close to her are your best bet.
    Best way to get on my good side: You're already on it.
    FAVORITES
    Color: White
    Profession: Zealot
    Profession Skill: Illumination - GLOW
    General Skill: GLANCING 
    Location: Her Haven
    God/Goddess: Dhar
    Guild Master/House Head (all time): Daingean
    Tattoo: Shield
    Artifact (don't have to own): She's kind of a purist. Do it yourself, don't rely on artifacts.
    Commodity: No idea.
    Animal: Honestly, she's pretty nervous about any animals which aren't beasts of burden.
    Item owned: Wedding band
    Village/forest/region: The Pash Valley. Heart is where the home is, right?
    NPC: Draryn
    Memory: Any number of things to do with Konnorn
    Song: Lin's performance in the Black Flagon Inn
    Drink: The Grim Impaler
    MINDSET
    Goals: Become a more competent fighter, become a more necessary member of the guild, and generally be helpful.
    Amibitions: Move from congregation to order!
    Nemesis: None, really. Though maybe Lyl fits the bill in a very non-nemesis-ish way?
    Rival: None.
    Best Friend: Gosh, this is hard! Even though they haven't spoken much, she probably holds Ciarelle in that sort of regard, due to mutual acquaintances and so on. The fact that she's on close terms with Gepideth and Serrice, who are both sort of idol-level figures for Dasha, goes a long way.
    Idol: Dhar, Gepideth, Serrice, Konnorn 
    Best personal achievement: Actually killing people at Leylines.
    Worst personal achievement: Wielding an eyeball instead of an eye sigil when trying to pull someone out of phase.
    Proudest moment: Becoming a full member of the Daru.
    Most shameful moment: Staying quiet during the argument between Konnorn and Dhar about Akimoto's presence at her wedding. Strong feelings of cowardice and hypocrisy from that.
    Secret dream: Learning to cook.
    If I could make one wish..: Light overtakes the world, people are peaceful, Undeath is gone.

    Well,  this was entertaining actually.

    THE ESSENTIALS

    Race: Kelki
    Gender: Female
    Guild/House: Syssin
    City: Spinesreach
    Order: None

    THE LOOK

    Hair: Silver straight hair - bells woven into it. (Mostly cause I love the idea of jingling everywhere)
    Eyes: Grey/light blue 
    Height: Short to Average
    Build: Slyphe-like - Lithe
    Defining Features: Hrm. The hair. And the fact that I play to having blue skin and webbed hands/toes
    Clothing: Depends on the mood she is in. Typically, she wears the outfit designed for her based on her culture - open breasted shirt and shorts - never shoes if she can manage it. If she wants to look, you know, decent, something long and flowy.
    Tattoos: Just one - an anchor on her right arm.
    Piercings: Multiple - jewelry is iconic to her - with each achievement or rank she attains, she adds another piece of jewelry. Always a nose ring and earring though.
    Scars: None

    PERSONALITY

    Strengths: She is good at hiding out in the open if she chooses. Anywhere she goes, she blends in, unless she chooses to interact openly. Creative - she loves creating and coming up with new things.
    Weaknesses: Naive. Very. She is young and was raised on a ship - her lack of knowledge in certain areas can be rather amusing. And she does not have a very good filter - she speaks without thinking.
    Attitude: Typically a bubbly, happy person with a tendency to make everything sound worse than it is. I would say she is quiet - but only if people choose not to interact with her. She may appear to just be loitering around, but she is usually working on some new design, and will chat with -just- about anyone. 
    Morals: Hmm, that is a tough question really. She does not really have a good sense of right and wrong, and usually sees things as either necessary or not. 
    Pet Peeves: Smoking. She hates it and usually will leave if someone blows it in her face. 
    Best way to get on my good side: Be more than just a listener in conversation. Interact with regularity.

    FAVORITES

    Color: Shiny
    Location: Her beachfront tent in her home - or the Phoenix Roost Cafe.
    God/Goddess: Slyphe probably - simply because of culture
    Item owned: A golden sun nosering
    Drink: Rum

    MINDSET

    Goals: Continue just as she is - getting paid to design things for people. Other than that - she is young - not a ton of goals other than to be content.
    Amibitions: Eventually she will consider finding someone who can match her in regards to being able to keep up - both mentally and physically.
    Nemesis: Hrm, not really a nemesis.
    Best Friend: I would probably have to go with Periluna - closest person to her, really, other than Raeche
