Zamaris is about 5'9" with silvery-white hair and obviously elven features. She wears the elven equivalent of an explorer's outfit, looking like a traveler with a large bow peeking over her shoulder where she could easily grab it.

Zamaris is a cavern elf, from a long line of cavern elves in service to dragons, some of nature's noblest creatures. Cavern elves can be even more reclusive than most. However, this is a preference, not a weakness, especially in the case of Zamaris.

Zamaris was called by the elders to be an Emissary, and she was glad of it for while she worships Aradia like most of her kind, she was never really as interested as she should be in nature and religion. She admires those things, but they are not where her strengths lie.

Zamaris is good with people and languages, and in training to become an Emissary for her people she initially learned Novan, but when the new humans were observed, her specialty was changed, and she began to learn human tongues and traditions, learning the accents of the common Valerian tongue as well as Dwarven, because her tribe has learned that dwarves are traditionally cave-dwellers and could be a direct threat to her people's domain, she also learned the Sea Wolf language, because the dragons have hinted that it is important.

[Note: Not sure what the Sea Wolf language is named, and what I am imagining here is that the Sea Wolves were driven out of the North, maybe not necessarily *because* of dragons, but that the dragons of the North (who perhaps migrate here, or at least some Silver dragon visited here, thus Zamaris' background) at least know of it. Also, her tribe could have been in service to dragons in the past if you prefer, but what I am thinking is that the elders rule the tribe in all things that the dragons do not dictate (and they rarely dictate), but that if any of the children is found to have the blood of dragons, they are to present themselves for direct service, and if they are selected, then they are the ones that do the direct interaction with the dragons.]

Once her apprenticeship was finished and she learned all she could from her own kind, she was tasked with living among the humans and dwarves to observe and become an expert on these new races so that she could advise the tribe. She set out immediately on the long trip to this area, but not until she arrived and began her task did she realize that she was blessed with the blood of dragons.

She was somewhat torn between remaining and completing her task and returning to present herself for possible direct service with a dragon, but after many long prayers to Aradia, she feels that she must complete her task first so that she may pass on her knowledge to the tribe and thereby benefit them, even if she is chosen to serve and is unable to advise them regularly. Thus she has begun a journal detailing her travels and observations about all the different peoples, particularly whether they respect nature as they should, whether they seem like they will be a threat to the elves, what new products her people may be able to trade for, etc. That is what she is doing as the story begins.
