Background/Appearance/Party Role/Relations:

My family has dwelt in Sandpoint nearly since its founding. My parents settled there after leaving the Mierani Forest and are considered Forlorn. The decided it would be better to be Forlorn in a small human settlement than lower caste peasant in Elven society. My father, Porthos, was quickly able to find work with the Valdemar family as part of the Shipwrights' Guild, due to his innate perceptiveness, connection to woodworking for shipbuilding, and also his extensive travels along the coastal region. My mother, Tikakana, works at Turandarok Academy, is known for her minor magical abilities, and is part of the Magician's Guild. I was born shortly after their arrival and being around non-Elves has become natural for me. My parents however, still have fits of melancholy. Nothing too serious mind you, as they chose to leave, but they still miss the forests. I have heard that the Valdemars are not doing as well as they put on, perhaps that is why my father is often depressed, more so than the Forlorn.

I also have a younger sister by a few years, Kylilirana, who also works for the Valdemars. She is also magically gifted and has taken an apprenticeship as a ship's mage.

Ever since I was young, I have a had a fascination with Old Light and some of the older ruins in the region. That is what led me to work with Brodert Quink, he accepted me as his unpaid assistant and has taught me pretty much all I know about the history of Varisia. The two of us have studied these ruins for years. And I cant wait to rebuild Old Light and turn it into a mage tower, for learning of course. Please dont tell Master Quink I said that. He would be horrified that I wanted to disturb the ruins. Of course my parents want me to stop playing and get to work. My mother, specifically, wants me to go study magic in Galduria. I have to admit, it is tempting. But with the celebration coming up, I will make a decision after that.

Trait Backgrounds:
With Master Quink, I had a great interest in past cultures and ancient history. Furthermore, having grown up in Varisia, I know the monuments dotting the landscape belong to an ancient civilization known as Thassilon. From my life of study and dogged research, I have pieced together the language and partial history of this once-great empire.

My mother's heritage carries magic in it in a strong way for the female line, and I inherited it as well. The family story goes that around the time of Earthfell, a group of female mages from a different world was studying Golarion and the singularity trapped them on this world. Like I noted above, this is a family story and I make no claim to its truthfulness. Our distinct eye color also ties into this family story.

I was born lucky, thanks to both my parents being members of their respective guilds, I have been offered apprenticeships but I have yet to commit to one. I do do odd jobs with my magic ability and I have saved up enough to at least consider my mother's desire for me to move to Galduria. I have also earned income as a proficient translator for some of the guilds in Sandpoint. I am a natural polyglot but my time spent pouring over ancient tombs has lead me to study some of Varisian ancient languages, including Varisian, Giant, and Thassilonian, beyond the more common languages of Sandpoint and the languages of my Elven heritage.

I would describe myself as medium build, for an Elven female, about 5'6", so a little taller than elf average, and 100 lbs, with a fair complexion, blond hair shoulder length hair, and platinum eyes. I am usually wearing an explorers outfit that is always dirty from archeology digs with Master Quink. I get cold easily and during the winter months the tip of my nose turns a redish/pinkish hue - this is a dead give away that I am cold. I also sunburn easily due to my complexion and usually wear a wide-brimmed hat while on outdoor studies.

I am very outgoing, I like to talk, especially about things I find interesting. My friends say my inquisitive and loquacious nature is great, to a point. I am honest and have a hard time not talking in facts. However, I am quick to jump to conclusions and can have a nasty temper when I feel that I am threatened.

Relationships map:
good terms:
Mother Tikakana
Father Porthos
Sister Kylilirana
Valdemar family - employer of my father
Master Quink - associate and teacher
Shelalu - with few elves in Sandpoint, Shelalu is like a cousin
Ilsoari Gandethus - employer of my mother

bad terms:
Kaye Tesarani - This is probably more a one sided issue, she approached me and offered employment, said I could do more than just read dusty toms all day and that I would give a nice flare to her establishment. No thank you. I am not a harlot.
Shayliss Vinder - She should work at the Pixie's Kitten. She gets all the attention of the boys these days, she knows it, and she flaunts it in front of the rest of us.
Scarnetti family - The Scarnettis are trouble. Their lack of ethics have led to the Valdemars' recent troubles, and thus to my father's issues.

Party Role:
Being a gifted diviner, I expect that I will always (hopefully) be the first to act in any situation. That means I can control the battle field, buff, or debuff all equally well. I realize that I cannot bring the pain as easily as some other mages, but I can hold my own. Not to mention, and not to brag, but I know stuff, lots of stuff, especially about old things.

She may dip into Chronicler, but I am not sure yet.

Bonded Item: My mother gave me a family heirloom when I reached my 77th lifeday. Normally, in Elven culture I wouldn't be considered an adult yet but living among other races for so long has given my parents new perspective on things like time. The bow is an ancient family heirloom shortbow that was crafted before Earthfall and was given then ame "Solace," I don't know why - it has something to do with the family legend. She also taught me how to unlock its power to strengthen my spell casting, plus I am an elf, which means I am a pretty good shot.

*(If possible, I would like the bow to have some latent magical ability. Later on the PC could "discover" the power and I would pay the requisite SP for the magic.)
