Human, Ter'ei'Vikh


« on: June 27, 2006, 02:09:23 AM »

Miraran ĎMiraí Tehýriden

Gender: Male

Age: 32

Race: Human

Tribe: Ter'ei'Vikh Tehýriden

Title: Greenkeeper


Physical appearance:

Standing at about nineteen palmspan, Miraran is fairly long for a Ter'ei'Vikh, an impression further reinforced by the somewhat androgynous facial features and slender build that mark this tribe. The comparison end here though, for where the "Vikh are dark skinned with bright white hair, Mira is quite the opposite, displaying the pale skin and n'orsidian black of some of his most distant Lillivear ancestors.  His eyes are dark green, which is emphasised by the grey lines that appear to radiate from his pupils, giving a cheerfull, lighthearted effect, which suits him just fine. He moves in an elegant, but sadly imbalanced way, as he tends to start walking, get distracted, get distracted again, fail to notice the root sticking up.. well, you get the idea. This is partially explained from living within the trees of the Drifting Woods of Nybelmar for fifteen years, but it would most certainly help if he'd keep his mind and his feet together a bit better.


Clothes:

Often, Miraran wears nothing more than a simple turei, a type of wrap-skirt, from Faen-bought fabrics as is custom amongst the Ter'ei'Vikh of northwestern Nybelmar. Currently, no Tehýriden possesses exceptional weaving skills, and the slightly more open-minded outcasts have happily adopted the outlandish, often exotically coloured fabrics the merchants bring in. Miraran himself favours brown, green and yellow cloths, and is rarely seen in some of the more fanciful reds and purples, preferring to limit himself to "Wood Colors", as he calls them, although he is quite enamoured with the simple line-patterns used by the Faen weavers. An added benefit is of course, that the dirt marks that come with his botanical studies are easily concealed on these colors.  :rolleyes:

For more official matters, he will wear long, concealing hooded cloaks, that cover all but his head. (As long as he is not using the hood, of course.) He sticks to monocolored fabrics for these garments, (but can be expected to just wear the turei underneath anyway!) and if at all possible, black ones at that.


Personality:

Inquisitive, trusting, yet slightly distant, Miraran is a walking social juxtaposition. While he is always interested in meeting new folk, hearing their stories and learning about their backgrounds, he is equally seclusive about his own life, both before and after his exile. He is often socially active, but this appears to be somewhat of an act, that hides his inbred distrust of all Earth Children. He is especially distant towards Dwarves, but has taken a liking to those few Elves he has met during his travels.
Miraran hunts knowledge, especially on natural phenomena, wherever he goes, and is always on the lookout for new paths to take and new sights to discover. He has always liked traveling, but avoids mountainous regions as much as possible, preferring open fields and forested areas.


Strengths:

-Spirit Song magic. A magic possessed by all Ter'ei'Vikh, Miraran may use his ability to communicate with the spirits to shape and direct living things so a small degree. Because he is not one of the true "Vikh, he cannot join others in song to enhance his powers. Its effects are limited to chasing off animals, making a flower bloom, and somewhat enhancing the natural healing processes of a wounded individual. More usefull are its spiritual possibilities, by means of which he can access the spirit world to commune with the powerfull spirits of certain places, detect lifeforms,  and receive guidance from his ancestors.

-Distant contacts. A result of his employment at the Enkyclopedia Nybelmarnica, Miraran knows people all over the world. Would he need to travel far, he can usually rely on these contacts for information and help.

-Ecological knowledge. His studies are focused on the ways of nature, and have taught him much about the way an ecosystem functions. He can put this to his advantage in many ways when out in the wild, as he can 'read nature's scrolls', and more often than not deduct if a plant is edible, how a disease should be treated, and which way certain animals or plants might be found.

-Dark Councillors. While in Nybelmar, especially the northwestern regions, the myths of the Dark Councillors help protect him from unwanted attention. Robbers are likely to leave him be as long as he wears the required cloak, and very few people will try to deter him from going about as he pleases.



Weaknesses:

-Outcast. As a Ter'ei'Vikh in whom the ancient Lillivear bloodlines are dominant, Miraran has no real family or a proper home. "Proper" being located in the elevated villages of the "Vikh. Although he has come to terms with this, the conflict between his situation and the way his life should have been still slumbers deep within him.

-Kindness. A quality often admired in people, has gone a bit overboard in Miraran's case. Always ready to believe in someones good intentions, and able to forgive nearly everything done to him, this aspect of Miraran's may eventually lead him into deep, deep trouble.

-Partial claustrophobia. Raised in the belief the Earth Spirit is a malevolent being that will not hesitate to harm him at every chance, Miraran will not go underground no matter what the consequences.

-Pacifistic. Miraran does not hunt or kill living beings unless he would be in dire need of nourishment. This means that he will either try to disable a threat (a hunting predator for instance), usually through magical means, or flee. This does not apply to the lower animals, such as insects and other invertebrates, although he will always try to kill nothing he will not eat, and may at times go for weeks without eating anything animal in nature.

-Mild xenophobia. Although the Tehýriden have to shrug the Ter'ei'Vikh way of constant distrust to all outsiders in order to survive, Miraran is still a bit squeamish about getting more than superficially involved with groups of non-"Vikh people, especially when away from home.


Weapons: None in his possession, but he has had some training in the use of the typical ranged hunting tools used by the Ter'ei'Vikh, mainly the Matan and the thrown short spear. Sadly, he has never been much good at it. It is not recommended to count on his aim when under pressure, or to stand anywhere than directly behind him on all occasions. Fortunately for him, he prefers fishing anyway.


History:

Miraran was born on the 24th Molten Ice of 1635 A.S. As usual it was a smooth delivery, and surrounded by most of this relatives, Mira came into this world into the warm embrace of their voices. His dark hair was at the time no reason for concern at all. After all, one out of five children is born dark-haired, and it nearly always pales before their fifteenth year.

Nearly.

And a little dark-haired boy lived peacefully for years, never wondering why the few dark streaks of his friends faded over time, while his did not. He was taught to survive outside the villages, how to find food, and how to avoid the many dangers that lie waiting for a reckless movement, or momentary lack of attention.
He was taught the ways of dealing with the Spirits, and how they would affect him in return, and was taught that only malevolent beings lived beyond the woods, spirits and creatures of the Earth Master, Kalim.

And then one day he turned sixteen, and was the last dark-haired child for miles around. He of course knew now what it meant, and what would happen that day. Like most of his kind, he prepared himself, traveling to the Gates of M'aghin just before his sixteenth birthday. There he waited until the moon rose, and, without family or friends to see him off, left his tribe to become Tehýriden, impure, outcasted.

The village just within the forest's reach on the banks of the Metherinin was forewarned of his arrival, and accepted him without further ado. As such he was given shelter and food until he built his own home, and learned the speech of the Faen and Morchini traders that relied on the outcasts for translation and mediation in their transactions. It was not the life he had imagined himself to lead, but it was a life.

A life that would take an interesting turn when a charismatic man came with the Faen, and with a thick accent introduced himself as Coren Frozenzephyr of Anis-Anpagan, claiming to need a translator to speak with the Ter'ei'Vikh at the Gates. As it turned out, the poor man wanted to be granted access to the deep woods, to gather data for something he called an "Enkyclopedia". It barely needs saying that the most ridiculous request was denied instantly, despite his most valiant efforts to convince anyone otherwise.


Five years later, Miraran is an esteemed member of the scholarly organisation of the Enkyclopedia Nybelmarnica, and heads a small research facility near the Drifting Woods that gathers data on the Kaerath region. However, a recent message from the Enkyclopedia Hall at Hostar has been delivered to him, and immediately after receiving it, he packed his bags and left, along with his Apecat Zirry, with the first southbound Faen caravan that passed by.


Familiars;

Mira has a Cedi Apecat he received from his friend and colleague Decipher Ziron on a visit to the southern plains of Zhun. It was his first encouter with a catlike animal, and he was immediately sold. 'Zirry', named after Decipher, seemed equally enamoured with the Ter'ei'Vikh, and traveled back north with him. It is now the communal favourite, and the playmate of the youngest Tehýriden, often to be found on the lap of one of the newest arrivals.
As most Cedi living with Humans, Zirry is just as wild and stubborn as any animal, although significantly more lazy since her food is taken care off (In fact, she has put on some weight due to being pampered by an entire community.) She is just over ninety nailsbreadths long, not counting the tail, and displays the characteristic brown fur with golden stripes of her kind.
It is the inborn curiosity of the Cedi that keeps her with Miraran, but it also might be that curiosity that will compell her to go her own way once again at some point in the future.

Hello, Miraran, and welcome to Santharia.

I see that you're still working on this character, but maybe there are some things that I can already help you with.

-5 peds is very tall. It's five metres, or if you're used to the other metric system, 16.25 feet.

-everything from hair colour down to weight *can* be listed under physical appearance.

-I don't think you can play a level 5 magician. Everything above 4 is restricted, so you need admin's permission for that :)  (look here: p081.ezboard.com/fthesant...=393.topic )

I hope these small remarks help you on your way.

Naya

Ack! can't believe i missed that.. it should be 5 fore, two span of course (1.85 m)

im not sure why i've got all thsoe things in seperate lines.. maybe i used an old template back when i wrote this..

I've been working on the magic bit, and i'm currently hoping my involvement in magical development, both theoretical, as the spell i've made, will convince the admins to allow me the extra level.

ill edit the length bit now, but other things will have to wait untill i find time to actualy think about things for more than a few minutes...Thanks for pointing things out!

As evident, Miraran prefers to set things aflame. Dowsing spells he can use efficiantly, but all spiritual spells are avoided if possible, as Miraran prefers using the physical manifestations over the spiritual anytime.

Why? Any reason for it?

Oh, and any specific reason why you want to be 5th level other then it being really cool?

it fits my age.. otherwise i'd have spend YEARS doing nothing.. *shrugs* i'm well aware that it doesnt add anything game-wise, as there are no 5th level spells, and if the verdict is "No you can't be level 5!" ill grow younger and use level four... i actually wrote several parts of the CD (including magic level) a long time ago, and at the time didnt notice the 4+ level ban (its a bit confusing to have both a level 6+ and a level 4+ ban you know... i originally wrote him as a mage who never realy completed his studies)

Miraran prefers the physical spells because.. well, he just has more affinity with them than with those dealing with emotions and the like. Its like preferring cats over dogs.... hes not a pyromaniac of some sorts, and he knows how to do various non-physical spells.. he just likes the more 'obvious' spells more..

Mira, we do have this ban for level 4+ now and I don't want to undermine it already now, though you definitely know more magic than most beginners. If your age is the only problem, just invent something why he stopped learning inbetween or why he was slow. Be inventive! make you char more interesting! (darn, haven't read him yet - will do soon!)

In my opinion, and this is totally biased the personality section is lacking. Give more detail, as this is one of the most important CD sections.
