About Ryzel Cain

The general demeanor of this half-elven woman is that she has seen some s#&#, and it has left her joyless and grimly efficient. It's hard to imagine her smiling at much of anything. Everything about her at first glimpse speaks to utilitarian efficiency-- her dark hair, greying at the temples, pulled back into a tight braid; the efficient way her various gear is stashed around her person, bespeaking a system worked out over years; and the short, laconic, pull-no-punches nature of her speech. Old, faint scars twist across her callused hands, speaking to a violent past as well.

If she was always this way-- hard to say. She seems to sink into her own thoughts often, staring off at something in the room that nobody else sees, and when she rouses herself from these states seems to desperately need distracting, throwing herself at whatever presents itself with a sudden intensity and faux-enjoyment-- whether that's available drink, a copious amount of food, a meaningless liaison, or the brief adrenaline rush of the chance to gamble. At such times, she might smile, though something about it seems a bit manic and desperate.

The rest of the time, she reverts to that unsmiling, brusque professional. There's rules, and if you break enough of them, her attitude suggests you'll be a problem she feels she has to deal with. The general demeanor and meticulous habits of caring for her gear and her person suggest possibly some sort of militaristic background, or at the least, someone who professionally manages crises.

-Among the possessions the asylum presumably confiscates is a locket portrait of a little girl, and a pair of dice, as the only non-utilitarian items present.

Phobias People disappearing on her, losing things, becoming lost-- a recurring nightmare is being in a house looking frantically for ... someone? something? she can't remember, but knows it's very important-- and racing outside, blindly moving into a dark forest in search of the-- whatever it is-- and then becoming lost herself, and being unable to find her way back to the house.
