The Body


Height: 5'11
Body Type: Antelope
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Brown

Appearance:
Wide, slopping eyes that dominate her face. A deep brown with just a hint green around the outer edges. Nose not right. The shape more slitted than found among the Blood. Nostrils not nearly wide enough to be properly Cervini.

Antlers sweeping over the hollow of her temples. Three points rising from the main beam as follow the curve of her skull. Hair carefully braided around them until they are hidden. Creative styles that match her dress. The height of fashion, always.

Faint scars from the hollow of her throat to her navel, around the place her mother had nourished her, and down into the peak of dark hair at her pubic arch. A matching one the length of her spine. Perfect circles at each finger and toe tip.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15pts
Diagnostic Sight
Craft Brews
Craft Healing
Craft Weaknesses: Regenerative Webs, Telekinetic Surgery

Personality:
The outsider looking in. A strange girl who grew to a strange woman. Yearning for more than her small world could offer. Drawn to things that should have frightened her. Hungry for more of what the world had to offer. The extravagances of the human world. The bustle of their cities. The cut of their cloth.

More of the same even as she came to live among them. Antlers hidden by braids. Nose marking her apart and a part of. Caught between the pull of two things until Charis gave up and became one. Herself. Something of both, but all healer. A shop to earn her marks, craft practiced with diligence. Marks spent like fire in her pockets on all the fine things they could buy her.

Lonely in that way of outsiders. Hungry for connection. Forgetting opinions and values in the search of belonging. Charis, healer. Charis, submission to every argument. Clutching the morals of her people in one hand and reaching for anything else with the other. Whole only when she is at work. Diligence, they had called her before she fled them. Charis now to be more like the others.


The Backstory


Family:
    Hidden

History:
Mother, father, sister. A family she loved. Held tight by the bounds of it. But it wasn't enough. Fraying at the edges as personalities grew defined. Healer child trained by her mother. Queen sister trained by their father. Community small and family vast. Close knit and secretive.

But she saw them. In the sky, on the roads, through the woods. People. Slipped closer when her Summer-sky came - staked in the wilderness, cut open and bleeding. Curious, safe behind shields dark enough to hide her from plenty. Dragged back time and time again. But she'd already seen. Felt the smallness of what she lived.

Blood marking her ready for the spear. Bent over the same altar she'd plucked her Jewel from. Blind folded and heated by brews. Afterward she was chained to the altar at ankle and wrist. Sinking into it, into the depths of the Abyss, a priestess perched on her back, or at the back of psyche.

Opal in hand, aching from rough stone and spear-strike, she was decided.

This life was not for her. She wanted beauty. Soft things. Glorious things. If she was old enough to be a woman, she was old enough to forge her own destiny. Ties severed, and bargain struck with a man on a cart. Away she fled.

Hard work and a little trickery saw her rewarded. Just able to pass as one of their own that no one questioned her too closely. Opal strong enough to serve her well and keep her from being too much bullied. She settled and unsettled, traveling sometimes with others and sometimes alone. Though she hated being alone, too used to having at least one other near at hand.

Settling again in a city growing up around her. Interests aligned. Soft things. Beautiful things. Glorious things.
