Taravel is an attractive, tall, strong, half elf. She Her most distinguishing characteristic is her deep, brassy tan and weathered skin, along with the numerous tattoos over most of her exposed left arm. She is clearly Shoanti. Her eyes are a dark, dark brown, bordering on black. Her hair is the same dark hue. Although difficult to notice, Tara has extremely long and sturdy nails on her hands, almost claw like in nature. She is exceptionally strong for her size. She typically wears her favorite explorer's outfit, preferring to use magic instead of man-made armor. She favors her natural speed and quickness over heavy armor.



Taravel is a proud member of the Shundar-Quah tribe of the Shoanti people. Her tribe wandered the northern Storval Plateau during her youth. Her parents even took her on the once-a-decade pilgrimage to the shadow of Spindlehorn to commune with their totems. Strangely, the 'normal' totems of the tribe felt off to Tara. Although she pretended the pilgrimage affected her greatly, in reality, she got nothing from the trip.

However, during her Journey, or right of passage, her personal totem revealed itself. She decided to journey to the Heart of the Cinterlands and seek out the Sklar-Quah to spend her years experiencing what life was like in the different tribe. Her time with the Clan of the Sun changed her forever. She did not suffer nearly as much from the brutal heat of the desert as her compatriots. She realized why as her totem finally revealed itself to her, as she was out hunting one day. Rather than the more common fire elemental or auroch, that the tribe was used to, a large, more reptilian form appeared. After recovering her faculties, she was able to hold a conversation with the dragon. "You have been granted a great gift, granddaughter. There are many wrongs you must right, and you must leave the desert to achieve these goals. As you grow stronger, I will reveal more of your gifts to you. Tell no one of this meeting." Tara finally understood what the others in her tribe felt, when hearing the joy of them speaking of interaction with their totems. She took the dragon's (her grandfather?) advice, and has roamed throughout Varisia for the last several months before coming to rest at Cauldron.

Future Character Plans:


I plan on, probably 3 levels of sorcerer to enter Dragon Disciple. I see her as both a solid damage dealer with some arcane casting, and also a good 5th party member as I can help with both roles in the group, if one needs some boosting. I plan on keeping Perception, Survival, Know. Nature, Know. Arcana close to maxed out.
