Martini is a somewhat tall woman with long and slender limbs. She has light caramel skin and hazelnut brown eyes. She has a roundish face, and a shapely body. She has thick lashes that and a sharp nose. Her hair, a light brown, travels just past her neck, and often she wears her hair pinned up or back to keep it from her eyes.

When out and about in Riverfall, Martini is like most Riverians. She wears a loose hanging pale blue shirt that falls just below her waist and simple silk pants that are black in color. She chooses to wear sandals and has a leather cloak for when the weather gets cold. While painting, no matter where she is, her clothing is always similar. A short sleeve shirt, preferably of silk, and shorts or pants depending on the season. On top of that lay an apron to keep the paint from covering her clothes. Martini also puts her hair in a ponytail or bun.

Often times she is seen with heavy circles and bags around her eyes, which she will sometimes conceal with face powders and such.

Personality
Am I that different?
The Artist:

The brunette is seemingly always finding something new to paint. Be it a person, place, or object, she will draw it if it inspires her. She is very bright and (naturally) creative. She loves to experience things first hand but mainly as a means for her muse. She zones out when drawing, focusing exclusively on the task at hand.

The Person:

Martini isn't much of a person, as an old friend called her, she is more of a machine than anything. She doesn't function well in social gatherings unless it's about art. When people speak to her the first thing they notice is a heavy Sylirain accent. She often keeps her answers short and to the point, to the point of being curt. This causes her many problems with making friends, as s=it makes it seem she has no time for anyone.

She's not the healthiest person either. When working, often Martini forgets to sleep and eat, only getting up for bathroom breaks or if she needs to add new notes to the information sheet of the drawing. She is never negligent in her work and loves experimenting with new styles and forms of art. She values hard work and dedication.


Pre-Creation
Paint it away.
Martini was born in Syliras, Sylira. As a young girl she was Martini was introduced to the arts very early in life. Her mother, Marian, was a beautiful dancer and her father, Lenard, had mastered the art of storytelling. While they had no high expectations for Martini, they did indulge her curious habits and hobbies.

She wanted to learn how to dance? Her mother indulged her. She wanted to learn how to write? Her father taught her. She wanted to know how to read? He mother helped her. Martini had everything she could possibly want. Except one thing was missing from her life. Her special talent. At first, she thought it was writing, because she often thought up poems or free verses that she would share with her parents for critique. When Martini began to show interest in drawing at the age of ten, Marian and Lenard combined their knowledge to put together an Artist's Toolkit.

Martini began to take Art classes at 14, when she realized that she was seriously interested in the craft. She began to live and breath drawing. She drew when she was sad, angry, happy... she drew all kinds of landscapes. She had started off doodling stick figures, but when she saw how beautiful concept art and landscapes were? That became her specialty. Her mother and father paid for her schooling and art classes, and they lived a happy life in Syliras until the Djed storms tore everything apart.

Yes, the Djed storms of 512 were hard for the seventeen year old. The swept over the land claiming many lives outside the city, but Martini tried her best to remain strong until those storms claimed the lives of her parents. They were rushing to shelter when her father turned back around to run into the house, he rushed them into shelter and bore the raging storm head on.

When her father didn't return, Martini realized he was more than likely dead, and she and her mother mourned for a two seasons before her mother grew ill and died from a broken heart. She would never know what her father thought was so important he had to risk his life for it. Before dying she made Martini swear to make her father proud, but after she too had passed martini evolved the goal into becoming the best artist so that her name would reach the heavens and her parents could smile down on her from above.

Though she didn't stay in Syliras for long after wards, because her house brought painful and distracting memories to her mind. She packed up her stuff and moved to Riverfall a year later in 513, but didn't arrive until 515. Once in Riverfall she immersed herself in her studies. She bought a home with the money left to her at the Kuahala estates, and enrolled in artisan classes at the school in Riverfall where she studies now even at the age of 21.

Fall 518AV
Was running her solution? Or was it a catalyst?

Martini flees Riverfall and sets foot in Lhavit hoping to run away from a series of events that would provide further grief. Once she has settled, she wakes to find the object of her fear has followed her and she decides no amount of escape is enough to distance her from her past.. or future.
