The Body


Height: 5'6
Body Type: Slender
Hair Color: Ginger
Eye Color: Blue

Appearance:
Ellie's hair is likely the most noticeable thing about her, dark auburn turning to a blazing copper in the sun. Small braids are often twisted into it and threaded through with flower pins. Always dressed sensibly, Ellie's skirts and clothes are meant for romping and tending to her gardens rather than court functions. Knitted scarves and gloves are some of her favorites and it's almost a guarantee that they were made by Ellie herself. She wears her Summer-Sky openly, set in a silver heart below the silver flower setting of her Yellow. Both jewels are at the end of a silver chain.


The Mind

Craft Weaknesses: Psychic Masking, Shields of any sort, Blood Bonds, Craft Brews

Personal Strengths: N/A
Personal Weaknesses: N/A

Personality:

Being the oldest child has left Elspeth to assume much of the responsibility that comes with having younger siblings and cousins. Her dual-caste has compounded this desire to be responsible for both her actions and those of her siblings or anyone (or anything) left in her charge. For all the responsible behaviour Elspeth encourages she is not above running around and indulging in the girlish games of her youth with her cousins. Despite her age, Elspeth holds onto a certain sense of trust and naivety allowing her to trust people easier than she should as well as forgive them just as quickly.

Forgiveness comes easily to Elspeth and there is very little that she considers unforgivable. She sees little point in holding grudges and in withholding forgiveness from deserving parties. Life's short enough without holding on to grudges and worrying about who wronged her in the past. No point in not clearing the air before a mountain of regrets piles up.

Instead she turns her attentions to indulging in, sometimes openly, swooning and romanticizing. She's a hopeless romantic which is putting it mildly. While the realities of an actual relationship are outside of her scope of life experience, that hardly stops Elspeth from fantasizing about being swept off her feet and having the perfect fairytale romance.


The Backstory


Family:
  • Daithí Mac Cormaic | Father | Summer-sky to Opal Warlord Prince
  • Talulla Kerr | Mother | Rose to Purple Dusk Healer
  • Niamh Kerr | Younger Sister | Jewel to Jewel Caste
  • Muireall Floss | Cousin | Blood Opal to Sapphire Witch
  • Raeford Dunn | Cousin | Tiger Eye to Purple Dusk Warlord

History:


During Witch's Reign:- The Kerr family is of sceltian descent, and came through during Witch's rampage across the realms. At Witch's fall, the Kerr's have settled into Little Kaeleer's Vetin District for a generation.

AW 81:- The tiny pride of Talulla and Daithí, Elspeth was their first child after the pair settled properly into Little Kaeleer's Vetin District. The child's Sceltian heritage was clear with her inheriting her father's bright red hair.

AW 84:- At the tender age of 3, Ellie's castes begin to show. The healer part came as no surprise given her mother's caste and the castes of many of her aunts and cousins. The queen bit was definitely unusual and Talulla was quick to bundle her daughter up to teach her what she could about being a healer rather than relinquish her to the district queen and court for training just yet.

AW 86:- Five years old and there was little baby Niamh, small and fragile enough for Ellie to go from mildly curious to outright protective. Doting on her little sister became a favorite pastime up until she was sent to begin school with the rest of the village children.

AW 89:- Ellie's birthright ceremony was a largely uneventful affair. Her father was granted paternity as was expected and though there was a twinge of disappointment from her parents at her light birthright, Ellie's dual-castes more than made up for it.

AW 90:- After years of following her mother around for informal healing lessons, Ellie is finally sent to formal lessons with a healer in addition to her general schooling.

AW 96:- After several months of dedicated hemming and hawing from both her parents and teachers, Ellie is sent to the territory court for training a few weeks shy of her 15th birthday. The change was a shock at best to the young girl and Ellie spent more than a few of her first months at court alternating between burying herself in the healing rooms or the gardens.

AW 100:- There was little in the way of outside prompting in relation to Ellie's decision to organize both her Virgin Night and Offering within the same year. She had no plans on actually ruling just yet, but both events were necessary all the same.

Late AW 100:- Even with her descent to the Summer Sky, Ellie was far from wanting to establish a court. An apprenticeship with the territory court was comfortable with more than enough responsibilities for her liking. Of course queens were meant to rule and avoiding ruling by serving in the territory court was only a temporary situation as Ellie absolutely always swore when anyone asked.

AW 101:- Elspeth's appointment to the district seat of Vetin is made official at the start of the year despite her attempts to avoid taking over a court. A court was exactly the opposite of what Ellie wanted from life but queens didn't get much choice in that.
