The Body


Height: 5'5
Body Type: healthy
Hair Color: black
Eye Color: gold

Appearance:
Glorian embodies the wilderness of Askavi. The mountains of her upbringing and the hard dips of the Eyrien runs that cut between. Sweet, round face blunted by heavy lidded eyes and a pert mouth that seems shaped just to curl into smirks. Hair a pile of dark curls that cascade down her shoulders like snowmelt rivers over cliffs.

Untamed in manner, movements graceless and hurried. Fluttering hands to punctuate her words. Stomping feet to keep her audiences attention. Youth evident in the scowl of her brows and the petulant pout of her lips. Body dressed to give the illusion of womanhood. Or at least the eagerness to find it. Clinging fabrics and thin layers that give freedom to her wings. They are shapely, elegant wings. Made for cruising more than long flights. Unskilled but instinctive in their ability to help her escape.


The Mind

Craft Strengths: 15pts

Psychic Shields
Reading The Land
Illusion Webs
Queen's Gift
Craft Weaknesses: Calming Touch, Blood Bonds, Walking the Twisted Kingdom, Physical Shields

Personality:
New to the world at large Glorian's inexperience is glaring. Fascination with even the most common things. Hungry for attention. Everything is exciting and fresh, everyone is interesting. She wants to see and do it all at once. Make up for all the years cloistered. While the people around her try to fit her into yet another gilded prison.

This new freedom has made her a petulant creature. Harder to control, and straining for more independence. But she is drawn to the promise of power. Not inherently ambitious. Just attracted to the attention and adoration she imagines a sitting queen must have. Lack of skill makes her turn to manipulation and tantrums in her dealings with those that try to deny her whims.

She is both adventurous and skittish. Ready to step out into the sun and explore but wary now that her sheltered childhood is finally over. Rushing headlong into everything then scrambling to get out of trouble only after its fallen on her head.


The Backstory


Family:
  • no real relatives but lots of pretenders crawling from the woodwork recently

History:
The war did not end with Witch, though many pretend such. Once Dhemlan had its hooks in Askavi the battles wore on. Leaving in their wake ruined villages, widows, and orphans that would never know where they came from. Such was Glorian, though she fared better than most. Webs guided the Exalted Matron to the starving toddler.

For some years she was called only queenling and witch-child. Trained in nothing but basic craft. Her role in the coven undetermined. Webs tangled and only showing that she belonged there with them. When they deemed her appropriate of age she was taken deeper into the temple. Led through the rites of her Birthright Ceremony by a dual caste priestess. Since all the women in the small coven where Black Widows at least in part.

After that everything changed. With the Red she was given a name. Gloria, they called her, the only Eyrien among them. Women of all races that lived in the temple and wove the fates of nations. Cloaked in illusions and hidden away because interfering was only done when the Webs of Exalted Matron declared it must be so. There were no queens to teach Gloria of such things. So her training focused on the Craft they could instruct instead.

Still, nature is nature. And she found ways to connect with the land. It called to her when she laid in the common room at night. Feigning sleep because they were all supposed to coexist on the same routine. The Sisterhood of Spiders raised her from small child to near woman. The confines of that temple were the walls of her life. Their inner courtyard the only outside she knew. Mountains glimpsed from windows, but snow never felt. A patch of garden heavy and fruitful under her attention, while she pulled away from her 'sisters' to shield from the lack of contact her instincts screamed for.

Long decades made tedious with the waiting. With the fears and expectations her sisters put on her shoulders. She could not be allowed to become Witch. They told her so in no uncertain terms. No one left the temple except for Exalted Mother. And then only to bring new sisters home. If Gloria was Witch she would ruin herself, and she would ruin them all. Bring the world right to their door. Her draw on the men that would want to serve would be too strong. They would come, and there would be bloodshed. An end to a sisterhood that had survived longer than recorded history.

And they would destroy her, those same men. How, the webs would not reveal, but all the sisters spun and saw the same. If she was exposed, if she embraced her queenly caste, then she would never be Gloria again. Would never return to the temple.
