At 5'9" Tesia has a lean, but seemingly athletic build. Her dark blue eyes appear thoughtful but sad sometimes, though she tries to hide it as much as possible. She has extremely long hair that reaches past the middle of her back. The color is such a dark shade of brown that it appears to be black at times, depending what type of light she is in. It hangs on her in thick waves, and when she tries to put part of it up the sides of it come down around her almond shaped face in a cascade of curls. Her bangs seem to fall across her forehead haphazardly at times. Her mouth; while not completely full, contains a nice smile when she shows it and can be dazzling when she is truly happy or finds something extremely amusing. Her lips are the color of soft pink rose petals, and her skin has a soft glow to it from spending days at a time in the sun. Generally she is well groomed and maintains a clean appearance.

While traveling, riding her horse, or just visiting friends and family she will wear simple travelers clothing. When she is dressed for adventure or an actual battle she will wear her rhino hide armor and carry her Scimitar and shield. Both her weapon and shield are beautifully made, with the symbol for Erastil and other decorative markings engraved into them. She can always be found wearing her wooden holy symbol of Erastil with whatever garment she may have on at the time.

Upon first glance, Tesia may seem almost like any other young woman her age. She usually comes off as thoughtful, quiet, reserved, and at times even a bit shy. On occasion she will be outspoken when she feels it's necessary. Given her mentors gruff nature she finds it difficult sometimes to socialize with others in certain situations. She may also at times seem a little brash in her way of thinking, but her intentions always come from her heart.

She is made up of many different layers, but if anyone is willing to take the time to get to know her...they might be surprised to find what lies beneath it all.

Tesia was born in a moderate sized village in the forests of Lakkara. As an only child, she was adored by her parents, who were artisans. Her mother was a painter and her father was a carpenter, who helped to build many of the temples to Erastil.

While she was young, her father passed away from a terrible illness. Seeing the pain her mother went through, Tesia vowed she would not fall in love. If she never loved, she would never hurt in that way. During this very emotional time she started developing strange powers that she couldn't control. The abnormalities they caused in the weather patterns had the people of her village in an outrage against her as well as her mother. Not wanting to cause her mother more pain, she packed a few belonging's and after leaving a brief note, ran away into the wilds to try and figure out who she was and where she belonged.

She found work where ever she went and saved as much as she could. She could never stay in one place very long before strange things started happening and people weren't very understanding of the young girl. All she knew was she had to keep moving, and so she used most of the money she had saved and took many voyages to far off places. Throughout her journeys, storms always seemed to seek her out. Often times while on a boat, or out in the dessert or other lands, sudden and fierce storms would come out of nowhere and bash her about with wind, rain, and lightning.

After a few of these experiences she began to slowly learn how to control the torrents around her, using them to her advantage. She became willful, resentful, and angry at being made an outcast. Not knowing how to deal with these emotions, she would bring on such storms that farmlands as well as surrounding areas would be nearly destroyed by her destructive behavior.

Finally, her actions earned her the attention of the green circle. They wanted to hone her skills and abilities to use for the greater good, and teach her that there were better outlets for her frustration, anger, disappointment, and other emotions that she had let rule her over the last several years.

However, now the willful young girl, was a willful and difficult to manage teenager. Many tried to win her over, but she almost always just "stormed" away. She was quarrelsome and difficult to communicate with to say the least. Her defensiveness put up a large wall between her and the other druids that tried to help her.

Finally completely wore out and not knowing how to get through to the now young lady, they started reaching out to other sects of the green circle in an attempt to find someone, anyone that could mentor the rampaging storm bringer.

One day their prayers were answered when a surely Dwarf and senior member of the green circle came to them about mentoring the girl. His mannerisms were very gruff, and he brooked no nonsense. While Kaplan Cinderfist was never mean or cruel to Tesia, he didn't put up with any nonsense either. He wasn't very liberal with praise, but was quick to reprimand her and often reminded her that being a druid was about duty and sacrifice, not joy, happiness, or any other "feelings". There was no room for such things, as they just gave way to temptation.

Oddly enough, Cinderfist's approach seemed to work better on the girl, than everyone else's coddling approach. She lacked discipline, and it was this that she responded to. That and she really really didn't want to upset her mentor. She found that out the hard way on a few occasions. But that was all it took for her to start listening to him and do as she was told.

The next five years were spent as his apprentice, and going everywhere with him. She became used to his gruffness, but it has limited her communication skills somewhat. She finds it a little difficult to understand others at times, but when Kaplan isn't around she allows herself to relax somewhat and finds that she rather enjoys people in a way she never could before.

When she heard they would be traveling to Zahvroma to meet with Elder sister she became very excited, until Kaplan reminded her that her "feelings" didn't matter, only obedience mattered. He agreed to go, but didn't seem very happy about it, but then again Kaplan never seems very happy about anything. She couldn't remember seeing him smile even one time in the five years she had known him. Who knows, this could be a whole new start for her. She eagerly packed her bag while keeping her smile to herself as she thought about the possibilities.
