The Travelers

In every culture across the multiverse, legends are told of mortal travelers who become trapped within the legendary realms of the fey, where reality reinvents itself and capricious creatures peddle strange wares. Our mortal heroes bargain and brawl with their inscrutable, alien hosts, doing what they must to return home or simply survive the strangeness of these weird realms. For the ageless Archfey, death is often seen as a game, and one is only granted leave once they have satisfied their captor's childish curiosities...

Name: Aeryxenia Ravenwood
Concept: 42-year-old female curious half-elven fey wannabe warlock

Desc: Though the brunette half-elf is quite pretty, almost everyone who sees her face unobscured by artfully draped hair sees first and foremost the bright golden cat-slit eye that outshines her own pale by comparison green (normal) eye. Her left eye is hidden some of the time, if she knows ahead of time she might meet new people, but most of the time she forgets about it until she sees someone blanch or startle upon seeing her. Compared to the oddity of her eyes, nothing else stands out about her, really. Her clothing is well made but plain, usually browns and greens perhaps with plant patterns over white blouses, all of it sturdy and made for the unexpected nature of traveling into places unknown. Xenia does have some nice jewelry, mostly silver and following the woodsy theme of everything else. Around her neck is a silver chain, from which hangs a yellow-green crystal wrapped in silver leaves. While made into something pretty, the crystal is too raw to be just jewelry -- any silversmith with the talent to make such delicate leaves as a setting for the crystal would have polished the crystal into something more appealing. She carries a shortbow and quiver, but rarely seems to remember it's there.

Background: Xenia is the first daughter of Lyssa Ravenwood, and the only half-elf of the lot. It seemed to be well known as Xenia was growing up that Lyssa had been far too interested in an elven troubadour who came through the village on his way to somewhere important. Xenia didn't even know his name, her mother and her extended family wouldn't talk about him, though apparently she had been named after a heroine from one of his tales. Long after he left, it turned out Lyssa was pregnant, and thus began the ostracizing of the young half-elf, before she was even born. Her mother married shortly before Xenia was born, but the birth of a half-elf was awkward. This isn't to say her family didn't love her, but she was a very prominent reminder of Lyssa's indiscretion, and they tended to be ashamed of her. If she happened to go play in the woods when guests were visiting, there was no recrimination. Some in the village treated her with scorn, some with pity, and only a rare few treated her like everyone else. It should come as no shock, then, that Xenia loved to wander away from the village.

more to come...

BrainstormingI'm leaning toward the typical half-elf who doesn't fit in background, wandering, and in this case the child wandered into fairy circles by accident the first time but then regularly after that. Apparently they liked the curious child. She was rarely gone overnight as a very young child, she didn't have the attention span to stay with the fey longer than most of a day. But as she grew up and her wandering was commonplace, her absences would have gotten longer.

Concept and Description: Eylim the Poet was born of a human mother, but to no father. Conceived within the veil of mists cast by a Gloaming Prince, the Poet was raised away from his own warlike tribe, among the fey who inhabited the tall pine forests of the mountainside.

He is a lean man, with dark purple hair and an elegant face. His high cheekbones and piercing ice-blue gaze give him an enthralling appearance, rather than being considered traditionally handsome (what with that hawkish nose).

Eylim wanders the outlands in intricate leather armour, crafted by the Gloaming fey. It is almost needlessly ornate, but Eylim keeps it modestly covered under his ragged old cape.

My link is forthcoming, which is saying something because I sometimes have difficulty getting to the first one .
