Campaign of the Month: April 2012
Elven Druid, Follower of Osiris
Complete character sheet is Here.
Startling green eyes in any form, framed by dark brown hair that rarely seems tamed. Her lean body could only be described generously as a little rough around the edges. Usually clothed in beautifully stitched leathers well cared for and made for ease of movement. A calm demeanor to those who don’t know her so well often broken with outbursts of emotion usually curiosity.
A flash of small sharp teeth, her first kill and the excitement was palpable.“If only you put as much effort into your study”, the tone was chiding but the effect was totally lost on her daughter by the hint of a smile that refused to be removed from the corners of her mouth.
Caminata siir Dhellall born 26th of Set in the heart of the Vequerrel Woodlands in the Western Empire, mother Sadafi, druid of the elf clan inhabiting the eastern woods, father unknown. All her mother would tell her was that he was a were shaman not unlike the druids and his future would not allow him to stay.
A virtual child prodigy coming into her druidic powers at a very young age that was marred only by the nature of her visions. The child would wake screaming to the visions of savagery, elf, human dwarf and far more monstrous beings for a child of ten, fighting, death and rivers of blood. As she grew her fellow students would instinctively avoid her, troubled by the girl so obviously unlike the others.
As she got older she found true companionship rather in the animals of the forest and to an extent the faerie folk they sometimes fought alongside. The wolf Nosse would become her companion, there to lick the perspiration that accompanied her more violent visions from her brow and warm her in cold western nights. Days would usually be spent alone or in the company of other forest champions such as Sallowan Willowwatcher.
By teenage hood she came not to fear the dreams that haunted her but to awaken to an understanding that though violent these beings she saw were on a quest that would shape her future, important beyond any purpose she now currently held she would one day leave this home and join these things that would become her family, to strive for a balance in the world that would send her on far greater adventures for knowledge than would ever be available in these woods alone.
So she waited and grew in knowledge mastering all the druidic powers she could preparing herself. Not only in mind but in body, travelers of the woods would be hunted mostly unknowingly by the two shadows in the dark. If intentions were evil they would only ever find out too late as they were ripped apart in violence few only leaving the forest to tell tales of a monstrous bear, wolfs or other animals so ferocious. Those that were deemed friend were instead treated to the beguiling chance meeting of a far more beautiful being, an elven girl of vast beauty and wildness that would pursue them as ferociously for news and stories.
Insatiable for information, accruing a number of allies this way including Gabriel the Fletcher, who taught her use of bows and how to craft arrows for herself. Bellowan with whom she shared her love of holistic medicine. The experiments with “attempted” healing concoctions was a great joy to her. She briefly met former CrIsis member Bungo and current member Azariel whilst trawling the Guild of the White Ash for information, and later not long before her adventures would truly begin she met with Adriana, Azariel’s wife and took it upon her self to guard her from the shadows visiting her on the cool nights to share stories and friendship.
The year 112 all but a full druid master and still unable to acquire the serenity and peace that one of her training should have achieved the summons from the council of druids during the festival of Osiris could only mean their final rejection of her from their group. Instead she was met with a very long anticipated news, the druids would be weighing in on the balance of the world outside the forest they had finally seen what she had known for so long and were preparing to send her to her future in the outside world. They bestowed upon her the only connection to the god they could, the staff Enshalla and prepared to open the way between trees to send her on her way. She felt as if her life was finally starting and with emotions so unbecoming one of her stature, giddy with excitement she bowed down to the god of knowledge and thanked him in the depth of her heart as she would be given the opportunity to bring him back and with him knowledge long lost and the opportunity to mend this great imbalance in the world, the pantheon of light and dark whole, the husband and wife reunited. She would dedicate herself to this quest with the ferociousness with which she had prepared herself thus far and dealt against this forests enemies.
