The Body


Height: 5'1"
Body Type: Slight but curvy
Hair Color: What hair?
Eye Color: Hazel

Appearance:
Ears that curve outward. Their backs dark and edges darker, angry tufts of hair rising from their tips. Tail a short bob, hidden mostly by her clothes. Body a small mass of muscle. Strong from years on the road. Curves inherited from her mother. Her body is well made for the purpose it serves. Traveling the world as the Darkness calls her.

A preference for bold colors and layers. Layers of clothing. Layers of jewelry. Adoring her body as she adorns her soul. Travels, hopes and dreams written on her flesh in the usual Tiger method. Stories and prayers written in others.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 12/15pts
Communing
Embalming Craft
Ceremony Craft
Regenerative Webs
Healing Webs
Craft Weaknesses: While skilled and capable of making Healing and Regenerative Webs, it takes Paros a day to weave one. Guidance Craft. Tracking Spells. Psychic Communication.

Personality:
Ritual has become a heavy part of Paros' life. She might wake in a new village every fortnight, but there are some things that never change from day to day. Season nor location altering them. They keep her grounded in a life full of uncertainty. She never knows where next she will be until she is on her way there.

But every morning she washes her face in a basin before putting her forehead to the earth in prayer. Every evening she lights a candle and takes craft to the skin of her head, sheering away the hair, careful not to mar the fur of her ears. She never leaves without checking her cabinet. Healers case opened and touched. Each bottle turned label forward. Contents checked and restocked. The same for her bag of priestly paraphernalia. The same basin she uses to wash her face used in offerings to the Abyss and the catching Jewels.

Her candles always blue dyed wax, even if she has to make them herself.

She is an assortment of odd skills and strange behaviors. No guidance craft to serve her, Paros is left only with her personality to win people over to her way of thinking. To make them trust that she can take them into the Abyss and out again for their ceremonies. That her clawed and tattooed hands can heal their hurts. Paros is considerate. Every feeling listened to, every complaint honored. Logic and a soft passion used to dissuade and redirect.

She is just so sure! So sure things could be better.


The Backstory


Family:
  • | Companion | Yellow to Summer-sky Caste
  • | Companion | Summer-sky to Opal Caste

History:
There was a mist when she was born. But there was always mist. It drifted across the border, edges blurring. It was fitting. They were a people apart of a people apart. Tigers. Men. Women. Those who walked paths between. Together. Feet on the earth. Hands entwined. Somehow they had found peace.

Broken in fights. Strangers coming too close. The threat of separation met with violence before questions. Their numbers thinning faster than they grew. Paros the only child born in ten years. The males grew restless and more vigilant. And the women resentful of being hemmed in and stifled. Those between them could not mediate.

It was a crumbling dream. One Paros grew in and loved. Father. Mother. None ever taken from her. They both claimed her upon her Birthright. Her Yellow celebrated. Her life a joy for all the fighting. Life was full of pain, you just have to cling harder to the love and happiness. To embrace it rather than shying away for fear of what might break it.

Paros was born knowing this. A wisdom she tried to impart. A calling in her soul that turned her face toward the sun. Made her feet itch to be moving. She ran away in a storm. Just a girl of thirteen, her first moontime leaving her delirious and full of visions. She didn't run because she loved them less, but because she loved the Darkness more.

Paros went where Mother Night bade her. Through mist shrouded lands full of pale bodies and gleaming horns. Among other Blood. She made friends and escaped enemies. Learned how to weave webs to heal broken bones, even through her claws tried to shred the silk. She braided them into thick, strong strands. Never swiftly, but always carefully. The care apparent in their power.

She never stayed in one place long. Something always pulled her forward or pushed her back. Dreams. Sensations. She couldn't name them. She just knew them, able to follow, like a perfect sense of direction. That way.

A tree scaled to make her Offering. So tall she could almost touch the people who flew above it. Wings and craft setting them aloft so they could land in high perches. Summer-sky found in a bird's nest. Her virgin night spent with a priest. The shape of Mother Night's face discussed before foreplay. The shape of her body compared afterward.

Feet turning her toward home. A place where she could pull the hood from her ears and not be seen as Other.
