Rizina Elaverin
left-aligned image

Name: Rizina Elaverin
Race: Half-elf
Class: Occultist (Haunt Collector)
Role: Melee combat/support caster

Physical Description: Rizina possesses the olive complexion of her Varisian mother; apart from that, she could almost be mistaken for a full-blooded elf. She is tall and slender, and her ears come to points more pronounced than typical for a half-elf (although they are usually hidden under her hair). In Varisian fashion, she tends to wear brightly colored clothing, although she forsakes the typical tattoos. She wears her dark brown hair in a long, simple braid that reaches just past her knees.

Personality: Stoic and serious to a fault, Rizina is perpetually focused at the task at hand. If there is work to be done, she would rather get straight to it without wasting time with pointless discussion. When there is no matter requiring her immediate attention, most of her time is spent practicing her martial ability or studying ancient tomes and artifacts.

Background


Rizina was born in the elven nation of Kyonin, not the most friendly place for a young “half-breed”. Her father was a retired mercenary soldier, her mother a Varisian nomad. The two met while his company had been hired to protect her caravan and quickly fell in love. Such trysts are tolerated by the more xenophobic members of Kyonin society, but Rizina’s father took it a step too far when he brought his human bride home with him.

Rizina’s childhood was marked by loneliness; few elf children wanted anything to do with a half-human, and the few friendships she managed to develop quickly faded as her aging outpaced her peers’. With no one of her age to connect with, she spent most of her time with her parents. Her father trained her to fight with spear and shield, while her mother taught her stories of the Varisian people. It was a lonely childhood, but overall a happy one. However, as Rizina would learn, nothing lasts forever.

Eventually the thin tolerance of their elven neighbors ran out, and certain extremist elements lashed out at the mixed couple. Rizina returned to her home one day to find her parents both dead, murdered. Whether through incompetence or sheer apathy on the part of the local authorities, the perpetrators were never caught, and the investigation was abandoned fairly quickly. It didn’t particularly matter to Rizina either way. Her parents were dead, and punishing the guilty wouldn’t change that. Revenge was a waste of time. Better to move on and live her own life.

As it was clear she was not welcome in Kyonin, she left not long after the incident. She considered settling in Erages, a town of half-elves, but decided she’d rather remove herself entirely from her country of birth. Instead, taking a cue from her mother’s Varisian heritage, she settled nowhere and wandered as a nomad. Like her father, she took jobs as a mercenary, seeking out opportunities that would allow her to travel far and wide. In particular, she favored exploring old ruins and abandoned places, where she could feel the echoes of the former inhabitants.

Rizina had always been interested in the concept of mortality; knowing that her peers would outlive her by centuries made it an obvious field of curiosity for her. Her parents’ deaths only increased that interest. She discovered that although all mortals must die, no one is truly gone forever, not in spirit. Not just ghosts, although she studied those as well, but everyone left echoes, whispers and remnants of the lives they had lived. Rizina carries her father’s weapon and shield, and she can feel in them a memory of every battle he had ever fought, every blow he had landed, every attack deflected. Over time, she learned to draw power from these echoes, making it seem as though her father was still with her, guiding her hands as he had during their training session when she was a child.

Name: Ferrin
Race: Catfolk
Class: Bard (Archaeologist)
Role: Support, rogue-lite skills (minus the stabby-stabby bit)

Physical description: Standing slightly above average height, Ferrin takes care to keep his dark grey fur sleek and clean at all times. He prefers a simple, tasteful style of dress, tending toward dark colors.
Personality: Ferrin tends toward gregariousness, always looking to control the conversation. He is extremely inquisitive, with an unending thirst to explore new places, taste new things, savor new experiences. He never lacks for confidence - even when it is to his detriment; his sense of invulnerability may well one day be his downfall, but he would rather risk death than boredom.

Background: Ferrin was born in Oyster Cay in The Shackles, the youngest of seven children of merchant parents. As a child he spent countless hours on the docks, watching the ships coming and going from far-off, exotic places. Eager to see what lay beyond the horizon, he took on as a deckhand at age 15. He made a promise to his mother that he would not take up piracy - which he was mostly able to keep - and soon developed a talent for finding strange and exotic items. Later he learned how to turn his skill into a business, trading up and down the coast of The Shackles, and even as far away as Sargava and Thuvia.

Ferrin has never met Lady Vamrul, but knows her by reputation. When he heard of the expedition to Hyrantam, he was quick to offer his services; the chance to visit a new land, and to explore the ruins that still lie beneath the waters of the flooded city, was an opportunity that he would never forgive himself if he passed up.

Roleplay sample: Ferrin stops just outside the doorway, taking a moment to straighten the seams of his coat and brush a bit of fluff off his sleeve. He had only one chance to sell himself; he needed to look his best. Once satisfied with his appearance, he rounds the corner and enters the small office. The woman sitting behind the desk appears much younger than he had expected; from her reputation he has assumed she must have many more years behind her than her face would suggest. But he also knew that age was not a necessary marker for talent, and that appearances could be deceiving...

With a single movement he sweeps his cap off and bows deeply, "Lady Vamrul, I know you only from your reputation - which I must say is stellar...I am pleased to know that meeting you in person does nothing to diminish it. I am Ferrin: explorer, collector of artifacts and oddities, and trader of the same. I have travelled much, from Cheiiax to Sargava, but one notable omission from my travels has been the Sodden Lands. I do believe, then, that we have much to offer each other on your upcoming expedition."

The dark-haired woman studies him for a few moments, then responds in a soft voice, "I can see what I have to offer you; a chance to fill in a missing page in your travelog. But tell me...why should I hire you to be part of my escort? Would it not suit me better to take adventurers who had made the journey previously, and knew already what to expect?"

Ferrin smiles and nods his head. "A fair point...and one I cannot refute. But the fact that you are offering such a tidy sum suggests that such folk are not easy to find...and the fact you advertised as far away as Marab would seem to confirm that. And besides, in my experience,' experience' can be highly overrated."

He walks to the window and gazes out onto the busy square below, watching workmen unload a cart of goods: fruits, sacks of grain, bundles of dried meats. Where did they come from? How many hundreds of miles did they travel, to serve as lunch for the tavern patrons here in Azir?

"Places are much like people; they change from day to day. And returning to a place, expecting it to be the same place as when you left it...well, that can be quite disappointing - or quite dangerous. I prefer to go into all situations with my eyes wide open, and with no preconceptions - whether I am exploring an ancient ruin, or returning to my home town."

Nemrah rises from her seat and crosses to stand next to Ferrin, looking to see what has attracted his attention below.
"An astute observation...but don't you think it would be useful to have an idea what dangers to expect, before exploring an unfamiliar place?"

"Oh, I have an idea. The dangers will be "something different"...and I've encountered them before. They were different in the Mwangi Jungle, than they were in the deserts of Thuvia, than they were in the forests of Cheliax. I have faced many dangers in many places, and all were different than the ones before. And I returned from all of those journeys, safely and successfully. Just as I will return from this one."

He shifts his gaze, looking over the rooftops toward the harbor a block away.

"What time do we set sail?"

Just a couple days left until deadline. Your sheet does not need to be at 100% but your concept should be finalized, with race, gender, class, background, etc all complete.

Oh. Should we all do that? I have the rough draft of Ezra's sheet in my head but wasn't going to finish it unless he was chosen since it would only take me a little while to finish it.

Rizina is complete, and I added a sheet. Some parts of her build are subject to change; in particular I could take Conjuration over Illusion if the party needs the healing.
