    Male

    530

    Species: Elemental

    Family:
    Brother and Sister Elementals

    Personality:
    Vriskno is a gentle giant really, he may seem big and scary but he's a real softy. He's not the smartest of creatures, but he definitely knows right from wrong. When other creatures of his land are under attack, Vriskno will come to the aid instantly.

    History:
    For many years, Earth has been filled with many forces of nature that have protected and helped shaped the world as we know it. Vriskno being one of the first elementals to come alive along with his brother and sister elementals of fire, water, and wind. However, while his brothers and sisters were born large and fierce, Vriskno was born relatively small, which he was fine with. Over the years, Vriskno grew larger over time, growing plants, moss, and trees upon his craggy exterior. After 300 years of living, Vriskno is now the largest of his siblings and will grow only larger.

    Current Goal/Purpose:
    Vriskno enjoys what he does and that's protect other creatures, but someday he'd like to find someone to take over in the case that he passes along..So he currently searches for someone who will care and protect the way he does.

  3. Name: All-Teri

    Gender: Male

    Age: 15

    Species:
    Ara Nobilis Camanensis (Nobles Macaw)

    Family: None of human intelligence.
    Personality: An intellectual of the highest quality, All-Teri is fascinated by knowledge and by learning. He has a habit of rambling on and on for hours about any subject that fascinates him, from biology to chemistry to theology. He is inquisitive in nature, and any newcomer will find his endless stream of questions aggravating. His intellect comes with some drawbacks, however. He has a habit of being extremely arrogant when dealing with people he deems "ignorant." He scoffs at physical strength, and often sees larger animals and humans as dumb and useful for little more than draft animals. He will sooner die than admit incorrectness, and is far from a charitable sort, as with all birds, he enjoys the shine of metal.

    History: He hatched in the deep jungles of La-tur, a small island off the coast of a much larger island. He was gifted with human-level intelligence, and to this day, even he does not know why. However, he quickly became bored with the dull life of a parrot, growing tired of trying to communicate, only to receive sub-par responses from the other creatures of the forest. Eventually, he found his way to Dasara, A large city-state famed for its culture and universities. Here, he learned to speak, to write, to read. Here, he fascinated scholar and common man alike, and quickly became a very influential ma-er...bird. No one could deny his brilliance, and so he rose to part of the University's board of scholars, and teachers several courses on Math, Science, and Religion. However, he has grown increasingly lonely in his time away from the jungles, and so, he has returned, bringing several men with him!

    Current Goal/Purpose: His current purpose is to research his own "people", and to find out how he managed to be such a brilliant sentient being, while the rest of his species were still simply parrots.

    Appearance: A small parrot about the size of a pigeon. He is green with red shouldered wings, and a curved beak typical of his species. However, he also carries a small dagger, suited to his size, wrapped around his body so that he can draw it from its sheath to fight with it. In addition, one will find a small bag filled with tiny scrolls, some being spells, as the bird seems to have mastered the human art of magic as well!

  5. Name:Mystia

    Gender:Female

    Age:25

    Species: Magic Elf

    Family: None

    Personality:

    Mystia is often quiet. She loves nature and everything about it. When it comes to visitors, she is always welcoming to them. Her quietness if often mistaken for coldness at times, but once people get closer to her, they learn that she is just meditating. She loves to speak with the animals of the forest and considers them her family. She was an orphan who was taken in by the high elves and trained in magic and archery. She loves to explore the forest and find new things to learn about it.

    History:

    Abandoned as an orphan, she was raised by Hilia, one of the high elves, as her very own daughter. For most of Mystia's life, she was trained in the arts of magic and archery. She was taught to always follow the path of light and never to be tainted by darkeness. Mystia gave her oath at the age of six to fight for what was right and to protect her homeland from threats and danger. For many years, she had stood firly by that oath, protecting the forest and fending off any and everyone who dare to threaten the safety of her home. There wass something that the intruders were searching for. It was the Cave of Eternal Youth.

    The cave bedded an onflowing river source of water. This water was called the Bath of Purity. It was the elves source of maintaining their youth, even through old age. The high elves often went to the cave in order to replenish their luster and spunk. It was neccessary for them to stay young in order to fight. Without the water, they would die out and the forest would be left undefended. Mystia was the youngest of all the elves and stil unknowing and blind to the truths of the cave. Late one night, she had decided to venture into the cave and leave her post. For so long, it had wandered in her mind, the caves secrets. She had always been on the outside looking in.

    Wehn she was deep inside the heart of the cave, she was stunned and surprised at what she had seen. Before her very eyes, all her fellow fighters were that of old age. She watched as they slowly began to turn young again as they bathed in the waters. She could do nothing more than to cover her mouth to muffle a surprise gasp. In the moment, a horn sounded signaling a breakthrough. Mystia quickly dashed out of the cave and stood in shock as an army of soldiers ravished throughthe forest. A report had come in that it was her post to the far east of the forest that was being destroyed. Mystia unstraped her bow and prepared for battle.

    Current Goal/Purpose:

    Her goal is to stop the soldiers from destroying the forest and finding the cave. Her reason for this, is that she wishes to make up for her carelessness in leaving her post.

  6. Name: Bethra

    Gender: Female

    Age: 10

    Species: Human

    Family: None



    Personality: A tomboy at heart she also loves animals and once was full of song and laughter. Recent events have taken their toll on her. Altho she believes in her heart of hearts, that her momma and father are once again together in the heavens and that someday she will join then. Till then she will just have to do her best to make her parents proud of her.


    History: Running from the most recent war, Bethra and her family had come upon a small abandoned hut and began to call it home. Soon after arriving her father died from the wound that would not heal. He had gotten it the night they had to leave there home in the city, when the monsters came and destroyed everything. Momma had cried a long time that night. Once they got to a safe enough spot to hide she had wrapped it with clean linen and salve from her special leather bag of healing things, but even so it did not heal. Her father never woke up again. Then Momma had taken her away the next day as fast as they could travel safely.Stopping occasional to rest but ever moving and never on the road. Then the bad men attacked, Momma shoved her into a tree hole and ran fast and far away. There was a scream... It was Momma, but Bethra was too afraid to look or call out to her. Instead she waited and waited. Momma never came back. Bethra wondered around aimlessly after that but wary of the bad men and beasts. Until one day she came upon the pool with a small waterfall hidden in a dense thicket. She fell to the waters edge and scooped up the wonderful smelling water, so cold and fresh. It soother her parched throat and mended her broken spirit.


    Current Goal/Purpose: To stay hidden like her Momma wanted and just to survive. WEll, basically... but there's been a strange singing and lights at night that she is determined to find out what's going on in her glen!


    Appearance: Clean and neat, Momma would have fits if she didn't take care of herself! Medium length brown hair, bright blue eyes with long lashes. Dimples when she smiles. Skinny and her clothes are showing wear, with no shoes, they fell apart a while ago, plus she had definitely out grown then.
