Simmonne, I don't really think that her skills with swords should be listed as one of her strengths since she has no real training in it... So  she mostly according to her instincts... that sometimes is quite dangerous...

This was Simonne's comment on whether the sword should be a strength:

Quote
You should add this with your strengths. Even if she doesn't really know how to use it, she can wildly flail it around and hope to hit an enemy with it.

Which do you think gives you more of an advantage: a young woman with no weapon, so you'd have to be close to attackers before trying to hit back... or a woman with a weapon, which puts distance between you and attackers, and even if you just swing it round wildly, it would keep your attackers from coming closer?

Helvil? Could you please use a different color for your changes? I can't see the pink against the white >.<

"Bump" only if you haven't received any comments for three days.

Red.


Name: Angela Ypherén
Gender: Female
Age: 25
Birthday: 23rd of Changing Winds, 1642 A.S.
Race: Human
Tribe: Korweynite
Occupation: She earns her money by selling what she can find during her travels, like fruits, medicinal plants, and rare objects (if she could find one).
Title: The Elf Huntress

Overview:
She is a human who left her land to look for an Elf that killed his father.(remove the period, put a comma) N(n)ot to avenge his father but to ask (for) forgiveness in his father's place for she knows that her father is the one to be blamed for his death. She left her home and betrayed her mother's advice. She is the master of no weapons but she is fairly good the bow. Her skills in claiming life may not be worth praising but her skills in preserving them is.

Appearance:
Height: 1 Ped, 1 Fore, 2 Palmspans, 7 Nailsbreadths, 2 Grains.
Weight: 1 Pygge and 7 mut.
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Dark Brown

Physical Appearance:
She is quite small for her tribe standing about 1 Ped, 1 Fore, 1 Palmspan, 9 Nailsbreadths in height. She is quite slender in build, weighing about 1 pygge and 7 mut. She has dark brown eyes that can be often mistaken as black if not inspected closely. Her hair is brown in shade. She keeps her hair in a ponytail and a part of it in braids to keep it out of her way. She also uses a hair(No space here) band to keep her hair neat.

Her skin is light in tone and in color. She has no bulging muscles nor does she have a very curvy body but her figure is quite attractive among the men in her village. Her fingers are long and slender like most women's. Her eyes are cow-shaped(cow shaped? With udders, horns and a tail? I don't think so. Try rewording it, as I don't know any cow shaped eyes.) and glimmer like the water of a clean river.

Clothing:
She wears a collared shirt that was made from cotton. It was dyed in green from her waist up to her breast and it is white in color to her neck from her breast. The upper part of the sleeves are also white in color while the lower part was also dyed in green. There are buttons at the end of the sleeves so that it could be tightened or loosened when needed. She also wears a blue wool cloak that is held together by a round brooch that has a blue sapphire in its center.

Her pants are brown in color. Her pants are loose enough to give her a wide range of movement. Her shoes are also brown and made of leader(leather). It is not fancy but it is strong enough to withstand everyday use.

On her back is a quiver that is slightly diagonal in position. The quiver is green in color with brown linings and with leafy designs. She also has a jewel: A ring left by her father. Its band is made of silver and a diamond set upon it. She also has pouches around her brown belt. 6 to be exact and this is where she keeps her herbs. The scabbard of her dagger is on her belt too but it could be detach(detached).
 
Personality:
She dislikes battle and will try to avoid any if possible. She likes the company of both men and women and treats both genders (the) same. She has a bright outlook in life but she knows when it is time to stop hoping. A smile is never lost in her face and even in hopeless hours, her face is still filled with joy. She gives advice when she can, although she is not as wise as the elders. She is very interested with the (e)Elves, especially the Kayr Elves. This interest was caused by her father's story about them.

Strengths:
She is quite skilled with the bow. Although she is not a master of the weapon, her aim is worth praising.
She has a vast knowledge when it comes to medicinal plants that comes in handy from time to time.
She may not have bulging muscles but her body is quite ready for physical tasks.
Even though she is not skilled using the sword, she can still use it in close range combats.

Weakness:
She is too forgiving. She forgives almost everyone who asks for it and sometimes it doesn't give good results.
She is quite easy to feel pity on her enemies. She only fight when the need arises for she does not wish to shed any blood, may it be her's or her enemy's
Her arrows will frequently miss if she fires them under great stress
She is quite clumsy using her dagger in combat. She somtimes(sometimes) hurt heself rather than her enemies.(That is what the handle of the dagger is for, to keep yourself from getting hurt. Also, not being an expert in a particular weapon is not a weakness.)
Her title, "The Elf Huntress" sometimes get her into trouble with the (e)Elves because of their way of understanding it.

(Too unbalanced. You can use a sword and a bow.)

History:
Angela was born on Changing Winds 23, 1642. Her father's name is Karkal and her mother's name is Alada. Her father just came back from a small orc-raid and was wounded. Her mother who was a healer herself took care of him and when Karkal got better, they decided to get married. Karkal is quite old during that time, almost 59 and her mother was about 43 years old. Her father still looked young and was still strong to do labours.

Both of her parents saw her as a blessing from the (g)Gods for she came late to them(What?) and she is as fair as the (e)Elves. During her childhood her father told her many stories about the Elves across the mountain of Sohon. She enjoyed the story and became very curious about the (e)Elves. When she was 8, her father gaver her a dress, made of cotton and has a green color in its lower parts(The very same dress you have now? That would be very small for you to fit.). Many times she asked her father to bring her to the (e)Elves but her father only responded with laughter.

When she reached the age of 12, when her father was old, her curiosity for the Elves was forgotten. She saw her father's situation and she thought that he was ill. She asked her mother if she could teach her about medicinal plants and how to use them to prepare medicine. Her mother liked this idea and taught her the craft of healing. By the age 15, her mother entrusted her with the preparation of her father's medicine.

Her father's strength did come back and to celebrate her 16th birthday, her father gave her his long bow. A bow made from an oak tree and stands about 1 ped, 2 fores, 1 palmspan, 6 nailsbreadths, and 1 grain in height. She began to practice using the bow under the guidance of her father(A bow almost as tall as you; that would be too unwieldy.)

At the age of 19, her father's illness started to go back. Angela prepared his medicine with sorrow for it seemed not to work anymore. At the age of 21, rumours that an (e)Elf entered their village(I'm sure many elves enter and leave their village all the time. Why would this particular elf cause a rumor to go around the village?). She paid no attention to this as an (e)Elf has no business in a human village.

One day when she was about to bring the medicine of her father, there was a hooded person beside her father brewing a potion of some sort. She stayed hidden from view because she thought that this man is helping her father. Many days the person returned to her father's side. The person finally took off his hood and let his face be seen. Angela saw that he was an elf, "So the rumours are true," she thought to herself.(see comment about the rumor above.)

A year after the (e)Elf's arrival, her father's strength returned. She was going to thank the elf for his help but when she got to the room, she heard shouting. The next thing she knew is that the (e)Elf was running out of the room with tears flowing from his eyes. She entered and asked her father, "What happened?" her father did not answer and ignored her.

Many days have passed. She was walking with her father when they saw again the (e)Elf. The (elf) ran towards her father saying these words, "Father, why do you deny me as your son! I am the son of Karkal the man and Lyth the elf. I tell no lie for this is the truth. I will not journey over the mountain of Sohon to seek a stranger. I am your son!" but her father answered to the poor (e)Elf, "I know nothing about elves specially an elf maiden named Lyth. Look! This is my child! Leave us be! Go back to your elven kin!"

Probably driven by anger the (e)Elf started to speak words that she could not comprehend. The voice of the elf ended but soon followed three lightning strikes that hit his father. Death took her father and all the people who saw the (e)Elf's deed, chased him. She did not dare follow the (e)Elf for fear took her heart.

Many days they mourned for their loss and many tears were shed by both mother and daughter. A small seed of hatred sprouted in Angela's heart. She practiced her bow to forget about her loss. She decided to look for the (e)Elf.

She travelled, heading for the Mountain of Sohon but along the way she met another elf. The elf was very hungry, tired, and many wounds his body had. Pity overcame her anger towards the (e)Elves and she gave the old elf some food. The (e)Elf stared at her for a moment and said, "You look oddly familiar."(Oh? She cannot resemble the other one with the different mother, just because they have the same father.)

The (e)Elf saw that the human that aided him looked very much like one of his students, Ohen of Dolion Meriath. Angela tried her best to heal his wounds but during the second day, the elf gave one of his steel swords. He gave the sword which is gold in color with its blade lined with silver. Then he spoke his last words, "The sword you received has a brother and I hope that you and the bearer of the other sword may meet i(No space here) n(Space here)the future." And with those words he fell into the ground and darkness took him.

She stayed with the dead body and soon realized that she was wrong. Her father was the one who was lying. He told her about the elves across the mountain yet he denied that he knew any. "That is why he knew so much about the (e)Elves." she whispered into the air.

She decided to travel across the sea. She betrayed her mother's advice to stay away from the (e)Elves and decided to come to western Nyblemar in a sea-worthy vessel. Ill-fate as some may call it but her ship was caught in the storm. The storm blew the ship oof(of) its course, nearer to the south than to the west. At last, the ship cannot bear the test of the sea and of the wind anymore. It broke down and many died during the time. Luckily she was able to hold unto a piece of wood that kept her a float. After some time, a fisherman's ship came by and saw her. The fisherman took her in and took care of her. A month has passed and both of her mind and body has healed, she remembered her quest, to seek the (e)Elf that killed his father. She thought to herself that it was fate itself that brought her to the shores of this new continent.

There she asked for the (e)Elf that she was looking for, the (e)Elf that killed her father. She is looking for him not to avenge but to ask forgiveness in her father's place. People started to call her, "The Elf Huntress" because of this. She did not like this because it sounds like she is out to kill the (e)Elf but she finally accepted it since it is the name she had became famous.

 
"She is called, Angela the Elf Huntress"

Weapons:
She has a long bow that was a gift from her father. It stands about 1 ped in height. It is made from an oak tree. It is simple with designs carved on it. The designs were like vines crawling around the wood. On her back also lies a quiver that is full of arrows.

She has a sword too. It is gold in color with lining of silver around the edges of its blade. On both sides of its hilt lies one emerald shaped like the sun. The sword is about 1 Ped, 1 Nailsbreadth, 3 Grains in length.(A sword this long, and I'm sure it is heavy. Can she wield it with ease?) Its scabbard is made of strong leather. Leaf-shaped steel covers both of the scabbard's ends for added strength.

She has a small dagger too and she mainly uses it to cut plants and weeds that can be used as medicine. The dagger curves as it goes upward. It is a simple blade that stands about 2 palmspan in length. Its hilt is covered with black leather for comfort. The scabbard is colored brown and is made from a tough leather.

Belongings:
She has a number of belongings that she keeps in her medium sized bag or in the pouches around her belt.
-A few medicinal herbs
-Mortal(Mortar) and pestle
-One extra pair of clothes that is like her usual clothing, only lighter in shade.
-A dagger
-A sword named Injera
-A bow named Gab-i
-A silver ring with diamond set on it.
-a medium sized water bottle
-A feather pen
-A journal
-A bottle of ink
-Quiver that is full of arrows
-a couple of extra bowstrings.

Have a nice day.

I have edited it!

Explain as some of Thorgas' comments were not followed:
Quote
I'm sure many elves enter and leave their village all the time. Why would this particular elf cause a rumor to go around the village?

I edited it so that the rumours will be about a Kayr Elf in their village. Kayr elves tend to seclude themselves from the outside world. Only in desperate times will they go to a human village... :)

Oh? She cannot resemble the other one with the different mother, just because they have the same father.
It is kinda funny on how that works Rolling I know someone who looks kinda familiar to me (like a sister) and many people thinks that she is my sister because of our similarities and she does look like me now that I think of it  Shocked

Quote
(A sword this long, and I'm sure it is heavy. Can she wield it with ease?)
A sword would only weigh 4 pounds or so.. and the sword is the common sword of a Kayr, a light long elven sword (I have done my research  LOL)...

How would they know that the elf is of the Kayrrhem Elves? They look pretty much the same with other elves.

There are only 3 elven tribes currently  in Nybelmar and the other 2 are dark elves.
Another thing is that the Kayr and the Korweynites are allies during the war of the chosen and if great need rises, the Kayr elves will only ally themselves with the Korweynites (I think thats what I read about them)

That did not answer my question.

There are bound to be travelling elves everywhere, and I'm pretty sure some of them will eventually find themselves in that village.
