About Rilia, Sacred Hetaira
“After the Unquenchable Fire, my loyalty is reserved for only one person in this world, and right now you’re staring at her ass.” ~ Rilia
"SIT BOY!" ~ Rilia casts command.
Rilia is a tall (6'1") exotic beauty, with smooth tawny skin, and pale blonde hair and eyes like smoldering candles. She is well-proportioned and moves with a easy grace. Her demeanor though changes to reflect whatever she believes might be required to obtain what she wants. Mostly she is calculating, and has a hard edge underneath what little silk she wears.
In elf terms she is still a tween and therefore vaciliates between boundary-pushing coquettishness and the wisdom of a person who has seen nearly one-hundred-and-thirty summers. She can be vengeful and manipulative--sometimes unthinkingly so, but she can also be surprisingly tender and sympathetic to those in genuine need.
Rilia has a sense of honor and loyalty too, as demonstrated by the lengths she will go to help her allies. On the flip side she can be utterly ruthless with those she deems her enemies.
Rilia practices a holistic style of healing, mixing the arts of a courtesan, magical lay-healer, psychologist and osteopath into one whole. Dim the lights, and start the music.
So some quick "the party need to know" things about Rilia, beyond what was mentioned above.
Her strengths lay in the the realms of information acquisition, deception, social interaction, and to a lesser extent knowledge. In combat she's a glass (no, not 'a glass cannon' just 'a glass'). Typically she uses her spells, and abilities to mess with the enemy while buffing, healing, and supporting her allies. If she's in the front line, then the fight is definitely not going well.
Rilia packs guidance as a cantrip, and can use it on folks if they ask for help, though if there is a particularly pivotal roll that needs to be made, and she can see it coming she might try to use it on your character without permission.
Rilia is based on a couple of other preexisting characters: Wanda "Gorgeous" Durst from the Wildstorm, Stormwatch Post Human Division comic, and Kemeili the Calistrian inquisitor from Queen of Thorns by Dave Gross. There really isn't a good link to explain Kemeili beyond the phrase: "sassy Calistrian Inquisitor". Kemeili is adventurous and a bit immature while Wanda, a trained profiler, wields psychology like a +5 keen adamantine rapier. Rilia falls somewhere in between.
