Too tired to think
Name: Shiriana Farun
Faction: Earthra (may switch teams later if it were more advantageous)
Occupation: Dancer, Dragon rider (& poor hunter)
Weapon: Bow & Arrows
Strengths: Good hearing, Problem solving, flexible
Weaknesses: Poor at common language, Short legs (slow on foot), unreliable
Archery: She picked it up really fast within the 3 years she's had Jeshir, however she's still honing the skill.
Dance: She's very good at dancing and has been dancing for about as long as she could walk. It's not too terribly useful in battle, but she can control all the parts of her body individually which could help her dodge.
Acrobatics: Part of her youth as a performer, she's been doing flips, bending and general performance style acrobatics her whole life.. might help her dodge or get up walls.. not too useful most of the time though.
Personality: For the most part happy and curious, She has a tendency to keep to herself outside of her tribe. She doesn't say much (because she has only started to pick up common since she left her village and is awful at it), but Shiriana shows all her thoughts on her face.
Character Description: Shiriana has dry curly black hair just past her shoulders, which is tied in three places. Her regular attire consists of thin fabrics that breathe easily, the “scarf” around her neck is for covering her ears and face from sudden sand storms. This is the standard attire for dragon riders when leaving the village.
- When she does talk in the common language she has a strong accent that makes her words hard to understand (the pitch changes a lot as well.)
- Her people are rumored for being exceptional glassmiths, however the city itself is hidden under the desert and it's been well over 500 years since they communicated at all with the outside world.
History: Shiriana grew up in a self segregated city of desert dwelling Elves. An important part of their society is their relationship with the sand dragons of the Nago desert. Legends told to her as a child said that the dragons had helped melt the sand where the City now resides. She was fortunate in her teens and was chosen by a young Dragon, giving her the honor of being his rider (something that dragons only ever do if they so choose). She left her city to gain information about the rifts for her people as growing concerns mounted about the one on the outskirts of Nago desert, entering the war just seemed to come with that. Currently she holds no allegiance with the group she fights for as no one there is that important to her.
Family: Shiriana is the youngest of 5. Her people choose mates for life and both of her parents are still alive and well.
Tirla Farun: She was orphaned at a young age and didn't develop properly with her people's beliefs and is seen as a black sheep of sorts because she hides her emotions which comes off cold. She is very orderly and intelligent, she is very good with her hands and making jewelry.
Daecus Faun: A very jolly man, he likes to sing all day long.. many days he speaks by singing. Very friendly and open he is the parent Shiriana is closest to.
Siblings oldest to youngest:
Adesina Mihura: Married, she is the oldest of Shiriana's siblings and has a daughter. She was born with albinism and currently works in government. She has a very calm and air like quality to her and her singing voice is amazing. She is the sibling Shiriana is closest to and Shiriana tries to mimic the way her sister deals with people when meeting strangers.
Buhr Farun: A loud and friendly fellow he picked up sun mage abilities as a way to make himself more noticeable. He has outgrown his rowdy teen years and has settled down with a farming water mage and they have a baby boy.
Grevnuc Farun: Part of a set of twins, slightly older. He's only about a year older than Shiriana and a bit of a show off trouble maker. His heart is in the right place frequently, but, he teases his sister a lot so they have a tenancy to bicker.
Shilamir Farun: Part of a set of twins, slightly younger. The kinder of the twins he seems to be pulled into mischief by his twin even though he'd much rather just read a book while he fauns over the lovely girl at the library.
Ugggh, Now I'm gonna pass out. X_x trying to finish this before work.... I'll add more if I make it in.
