Aside: Not a new character by any means, but due to my personal leave of absence I decided to recreate Anaea's chart- more for personal memory reasons than anything else. However, since I have been gone for so long, it seems only polite to re-post this for public viewing.

Name: Anaea the Marked
Gender: Female
Age: 32 Summers
Race: Human
Tribe: Sor’inyt
Occupation: Warrior (respected high caste and leader among her people)
Title: Warrior

Overview: Proud, curt warrior from the southern continent.

Physical Appearance: Darkly tanned skin, brown hair, green eyes, facial tattoos (testament to her status within her tribe) Hair is always tightly braided and coiled around her head. Height: 1.85 Peds.

Clothing: Hardened leather pants and cloth top (more often than not covered by a leather chest-guard.) leather forearm protectors, hardened kneepads, tough boots and heavy cloak.

Personality: At first glance, Anaea is a tough nut to crack: guarded, prejudiced and prickly as a porcupine. Closer inspection, however, reveals a sharp mind and wit, a head for war strategy and a deep loyalty for those who have earned her respect.

Strengths and Weaknesses: Stealth and reconnaissance have never been Anaea's strong suits; she's more of the brash and bold type. She prefers riding out to face an enemy honorably to any measure of sneak attacks and her fighting skills also reflect this: being a poor archer and an excellent hand-to-hand combat warrior.

Among a small group of warriors, her sharp mind and impressive swordplay skills quickly earn her the respect of those she is charged with- making her a most excellent commander- but her leadership abilities tend to fail on a larger level. Being a largely introverted character, Anaea doesn't often hold the necessary charismatic skills needed to inspire and control vast legions, regardless of her physical and mental skills. In most situations, Anaea is best suited to be the dagger- not the hand that wields it.

Very much like the eagle, who is cumbersome and awkward when on land but beautiful and full of grace when she soars; Anaea has also never been one to possess social graces. Her manner is too abrupt, too biting and she makes enemies easily; but when she fights, all awkwardness is gone. Her actions are smooth, graceful and deadly- but at the same time- ferociously brutal.

Her sense of honor is complex. Anaea will never leave a wounded enemy on the field and she never shows remorse or pity. She believes that if she and another match swords, one will die. Anaea will show no mercy and she expects her opponent to behave similarly. To leave her mortally wounded on the battlefield would be unthinkable.

Off the field, her honor is still prominent, though it frequently takes the form of pride. Often, she believes that her honor is the last thing protecting her from the vile ways of the Northfolk. She is quick to take to insult and even quicker to hold grudge against another.

History: Anaea was quick to gather acclaim for her warrior skills among her people and, as a result, rose rapidly in rank. At the tender age of 17, she had earned the right to wear the Wani'toia (facial and body tattoos of the Sor'inyt), marking her as a member of the elite caste.

In her 30th year, Anaea was charge with the command of escorting a valuable load of goods to the northern continent, but the excursion quickly went wrong. The merchant who they were selling the goods to declined their high price and, when Anaea decided to sell the items elsewhere, destroyed the goods in the night by way of fire. Part of the coin they would have earned from the sale was to go to their return voyage home and Anaea was forced to barter the skills of her small group of warriors for coin- in effect turning the women into mercenaries.  

Finally, after nearly a cold year upon the northern continent, Anaea met with a wealthy warlord who took a liking to her and promised enough money to pay for the group's passage over the sea should Anaea lie with him. Though such actions were directly against the code of the Sor'inyt and knowing that such actions would be cause for immediate banishment from her tribe, Anaea cared too deeply for her companions and agreed to the price. After the deed was done, she escorted her group home and accepted her punishment from the elders without complaint, though there were many that contested the banishment due to the circumstances.

Anaea has been traveling the kingdoms ever since as a mercenary.

Weapons: Double sabers (kept strapped across her back) and various small blades about her person.

Belongings: Clothing on her back, weapons, small amount of coin.

Everything appears in working order to me. I have always liked the Sor'inyt.
