Name: Aelelia Breslin
Character Type: Druid
Specialization: Animal Mastery
Appearance: Aelelia is a thin, small (she’s 5'5" feet tall exactly) woman with a very soft face and more curves than ought to be on a person of her short stature. With her big brown eyes, shoulder-length soft blonde hair and gentle smile, she is the perfect person to look for if you need a hug when having a bad day. That said, she likes to wear simple clothes in calming colors, ranging from blue to green and brown. Her favorite outfit consists of loose, dark brown leather pants, woven reed sandals, a sky blue tank top made from flax and a knee-length, light brown wool overcoat.
Weaponry: Aelelia uses a seven foot long piece of bamboo as her main weapon, since she generally doesn’t like to fight unless provoked. The bamboo is polished so well that there isn’t a single blemish or speck of dirt on it, allowing the natural color to shine through. When not in use, it’s tied to Aelelia’s back by a thin piece of twine.
Personality: Aelelia is a gentle person, very much like a mother. Calming and kind, she enjoys taking care of others, be they human or animal. Because of this nature, she is always found with some small creature in the pockets of her overcoat that is in some stage of healing. She walks with no fear through the forest she lives in, though she has reservations of the great city outside of her home. She dislikes buildings with a passion, living her entire life outdoors has made her more than a bit claustrophobic. She is quite cold to those who disrespect her home, if anyone speaks ill of the woods in her presence as she guides them though (to her, outsiders are notorious for not knowing how to get around), she will lead them to one of the darkest parts of the forest and leave them there until they shout out an apology instead of taking them to their requested destination.
On the flip side, Aelelia is one of those people that you should never make angry. Have you ever heard the saying that the more cheerful a person is, the scarier they are when they snap? Aelelia is one of those people. Any sort of violence, especially towards her beloved animals, awakens a terrible rage inside her, which could be compared to a mother bear protecting her cubs. Anyone she finds abusing animals is beaten to a pulp before they even realize what’s going on, and once that person is stopped, Aelelia turns once more into her gentle self, rushing to the aid of the poor animal she was defending.
Background: Aelelia has spent her entire life living in the forest, both of her parents were druids as well. As soon as she could walk she was allowed to go wherever she wanted, though her parents did worry sometimes about her encountering the larger animals that lived there with them. That is, until they found her curled up with a great black wolf for a nap when she was only two years old. It was clear then that Aelelia would grow up to specialize in animal mastery, a thought that was reinforced as she got older.
As she got bigger, she began to roam farther and farther away from her parents, allowing the forest and it’s creatures to be her teachers in the ways of the world. She spent her entire childhood like this, though there was one animal who stayed by her side more than any other, the great black wolf she had been found with as a toddler. He was a grumpy thing, always growling deep in the back of his throat at her adventures, but kept her safe as if she were his own pup. She called him Aoora, it was her childish attempt to mimic his howls, and what she called him when she was first woken from her nap with him.
She has spent the saddest moments of her life with Aoora, he was her solace when she was told that her parents, both elemental druids, were murdered by a shadow mage on her sixteenth birthday. She approached the Druid leaders, requesting the right to fight against the shadow mages, but was refused, citing that she was too young and her training was incomplete. She went back to the forest, and spent four years alone, learning it’s secrets, learning to mimic the animals, to communicate with them, and to heal them. Once she was done, she returned to her leaders, and demonstrated her knowledge. They acknowledged her efforts and passed to her the final secret of animal transformation (though she knows the theory, she has not yet been able to put it into practice), and gave her the mission of finding and destroying the shadow mage that killed her parents. This was two years ago. She’s found and destroyed one mage, though it wasn’t the one she was looking for.
Additional Training: Aelelia has learned the basics of reading, writing and math in order to survive outside of the woods, though she hates being in the city with a passion. She is an accomplished tracker, especially when confined to the Park, it is much harder for her to notice what is out of place in the city. She can mimic almost all of the creatures of the forest, from the smallest mouse to the great grizzly bears. She has not yet mastered the calls or behaviors of the magical creatures of the forest, but practices to improve them. She shares a unique bond with Aoora, where most animals would come when she called and do one favor for her before leaving, Aoora stays with her at all times, and grudgingly does everything she asks. She knows there is something magical about the wolf, who has lived many times longer than any wolf, but he has not yet revealed his secrets, so she pretends like she doesn't notice it.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.
