"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise." -Victor Hugo

The Basics

Image
✧Name: Asterope (ahs-tehr-oh-pee)
✧Nickname(s): Aster
✧Race: Ethaefal of Syna by day; Inarta by night
✧Gender: Female
✧Age: 2 years living; appears to be in her early 20s
✧Date of Fall: 51st Day of Summer, 515 AV
✧Place of Fall: Suvan Sea, off the coast of Riverfall
✧Current Location: Alvadas (Arrived 42nd day of Summer, 517 AV)
✧Occupation: Herbalist at Ionu's Mercy (6 GM/day)

Appearance

ImageDuring the day, Asterope is a creature of ethereal beauty. With an otherworldly aura, she carries herself with purpose and elegance in even the simplest of tasks. She stands at 5'9", tall compared to the average human woman but perhaps on the shorter side for an Ethaefal. She has a slender frame, weighing approximately 130 pounds, with a slight leanness born from necessity rather than desire for it hidden beneath her clothes.

Her skin carries a natural light tan, and gleams with an internal rose-gold glow that is only enhanced by the light of the sun. She has a heart-shaped face with almost startlingly severe, dark brows, a full but small mouth and a ski-slope nose. Aster's eyes, almond-shaped with a slight slant to them, are a deep, warm molten gold; they always seem to be lit up with emotion.

Her hair falls in silky loose waves to the tops of her breasts, the colour never stable, and is most frequently left loose or in a messy bun atop her head; it's also not uncommon for her to weave a small braid or two into it, something she picked up from her time with the Drykas. Like all Ethaefal, Aster has a pair of milky, glass-like horns. They start at her temples, perfectly symmetrical, the main branch stretching back towards the crown of her head in a spiral, with a shorter section that sweeps up beside her forehead and then down near her ears, curving into a loop and tapering to a point.


 
Summer
During the Summer, Aster's hair takes on a pale red hue tinted with gold, not unlike the rose-gold shimmer of her skin. Her horns take on a smooth alabaster hue threaded and flecked with pale peach.
 
Autumn
With the shortening of the days and the turning of the leaves, Aster's hair darkens to a rich, full auburn, not dissimilar to the reds on the trees. Her horns darken as well, turning a shining, rich gold for the duration of the season.
 
Winter
The arrival of snow brings with it the cooling of Aster's colours; her hair pales to a light fawn brown, while her horns take on a deep jade green as if reminiscing for the leafy forests of warmer days.
 
Spring
Perhaps Aster's favourite season, the rebirth of flora and fauna comes with yet another change in her colours. Her hair lightens considerably, taking on a pale, golden honey colour, while her horns turn a delicate shade of lavender littered with flecks of pale jade, echoing the newly grown flowers.


Image Once the sun dips below the horizon and night falls on the land, Asterope's appearance experiences a dramatic shift. Forced to return to the last mortal body she occupied, she loses several inches of her height, shrinking to a meek 5'2", and her frame thins out considerably, leaving her at around 105 pounds. Her horns disappear, as does the strange, celestial quality to her, leaving her more clumsy and human.

Her hair loses some of its length, now only to her shoulders, and becomes choppier; the colour darkens to a deep shade of ginger, almost a pale rusty colour in the right lighting. Her features sharpen slightly, her face shape squaring, and her skin pales considerably to a milky white. The burning gold of her eyes fades to a predominantly pale green hazel, but they appear none the less illuminated and lively.

While her skin is perfectly smooth and flawless under the sunlight, in her mortal form Aster's skin is covered in freckles; her face in particular is covered in scatterings of them. As well as this, pale silvery scars litter her body; they are hard to see on her porcelain skin, but they are evidence of a life well-lived.


Personality

Image
Asterope is still incredibly new to the world, and it shows in her behaviour. A combination of newness and determination to always seek good in those around her, Aster can tend towards the naïve and even gullible. While naturally a more reserved person, her time spent among the Drykas has encouraged her to often be open with her thoughts, something she is slowly discovering is not always approved of by others. In general, she has a serene, somewhat gentle aura to her.

Generally melancholic and still homesick, Aster has taken to the optimistic side, and marvels at the strange beauty of the world around her, so different from where she once was. However, she is prone to be stricken with sadness, particularly at night when she transforms into her mortal form and feels even further from home, and she can be turbulent when such moods strike her.

Always curious about the new things around her and wanting to learn, she’s willing to try anything at least once, and tries to surround herself with new sights, experiences, and knowledge as often as she can. She is always open to meeting new people because of this, and struggles to find balance between her slightly more introverted nature and her overwhelming curiousity of strangers. She tends to find a middle-ground in people watching, though she never means to be rude in her staring, and is in fact fairly friendly when approached.

Always with a soft side, Aster easily sympathizes with others and does not like to see suffering. Learning how to properly use medicine and to help heal others somewhat calmed her soul, giving her a shallow sense of peace and somewhat of a purpose; if she can help those around her, then she will.

In the Past

Postby Asterope on August 17th, 2017, 9:00 am

History

"As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known." -Carson McCullers


After the Fall

Image

It was late evening on a warm Summer night when Asterope suddenly and unceremoniously found herself plunging into the waves of the Suvan Sea. Salt water filled her mouth and flooded her lungs as she struggled to find which way was up until finally she broke the surface, dazed and disoriented. Feeling clumsy and sluggish in her physical form, it was perhaps a miracle of Syna that the Ethaefal managed to make her way to shore, not quite swimming but more desperately clawing at the water. Upon dragging herself onto dry land, Aster promptly passed out, too exhausted to do anything else.

A combination of the warm sun on her face and the hushed but excited whispering of children woke her the next morning. Opening her eyes, Asterope was greeted by two young children, clustered around her at a safe distance, but near enough to be able to gawk. When they saw she had woken, their chattering became increasingly excited, and they ran off. By the time Aster had gotten her bearings and was attempting to stand up, still clumsy and sore from her battle against the ocean the night before, the children had returned with an adult man. Aster would soon discover his name to be Inyel Stormgrass, a member of the Opal clan of the Drykas.

ImageInyel took Aster into his pavilion to allow her some time to regain her strength and get her bearings; however, by the time the Drykas were ready to leave, having only stopped by Riverfall for trading purposes, Asterope still felt incredibly lost. Still homesick and wanting answers, she didn't want to settle down, and so begged Inyel to let her accompany his pavilion for longer. Between her begging and the begging of his children, who had quickly grown fond of Aster, Inyel relented.

Aster settled into the life of a Drykas surprisingly well for being an outsider; she enjoyed the constant movement, as well as the various things she could experience because of it. To earn her keep, she primarily watched after the children, as well as helping with cooking, cleaning, and caring for the horses; but what she loved most of all was learning about medicine and helping the injured or sick.

Even if it was merely bandaging a scrape on one of the children, helping those that were injured (or sick) made Aster feel as if she had a purpose and could still be useful despite her sudden and inexplicable fall from grace; she hates to see suffering of any kind, and enjoyed helping people and knowing she could make a difference. It became the thing that she put most of her time and effort into. In particular, she found her gift of aging things forward a day to be useful in this; she first discovered it when she almost thoughtlessly scabbed a fresh cut on her thumb, and since then has used it to help speed up the healing process in those that she tends to.

During her stay with the Drykas, while she was friendly with all the members of the Stormgrass pavilion, Aster grew particularly close with one of the older women, Nara Stormgrass. Nara was the one to teach Aster about medicine, as well as much of the everyday tasks that she was clueless about. Aster learned the majority of her skills from Nara; where often others became impatient or irritated with her, Nara seemed to have an unending well of patience for the Ethaefal, and Aster loved to sit and simply talk with the older woman.

It was nearing a full year that Aster had stayed with the Drykas when she heard about the city of Lhavit from some travelling merchants. Instantly, she was enraptured by the concept, and her heart still aching for home, could not get the thought of it out of her head; she was desperate for any semblance of her previous life, especially now that she knew it existed. Nara tried to convince Aster to stay among the Drykas, that she belonged there now, but while Asterope loved the pavilion she had spent so much time with and enjoyed the life she was living, she knew it wasn't what she was meant to do. The next time the pavilion traveled near Kenash, Aster said her goodbyes and stayed in the city while her pavilion moved on. She settled into the city for just over a half a year, gathering supplies, coin, and as much knowledge as she could before she managed to find passage across the sea to Alvadas.

She has a long way to go before reaching Lhavit; so in the meanwhile, she plans on settling in Alvadas to prepare for the eventual long trek across Kalea.


The City of Illusion

✧Aster arrives in Alvadas (42nd of Summer, 517 AV)
Begins working at Ionu's Mercy as an herbalist (47th of Summer, 517 AV)
Finds a maledicted bone that begins to make her paranoid to the point of mental instability (2nd of Spring, 518 AV)
Aster's extreme paranoia results in the death of a stranger as well as Navi (86th of Spring, 518 AV)
✧Aster leaves Alvadas via wind eagle; instead of continuing towards Lhavit, she makes the decision to go to Ravok (91st of Spring, 518 AV)


The City on the Lake


✧Aster arrives in Ravok (21st of Summer, 518 AV)

(To be expanded upon in the future)



In Another Life

Image Asterope remembers very little about her past life; what she does remember usually comes to her in dreams or quite suddenly when she is reminded by something. She knows that her name was Vesryn, and she knows that she was bonded with an eagle, but little else as of now. Often, she'll spend nights tracing her few scars and repeating her name to herself to try and dredge up new memories, but she usually fails. She feels that if she could remember more of her past life, perhaps she would be more comfortable and more content in her new physical form.

Those That Make a Difference

Postby Asterope on August 17th, 2017, 9:01 am

Image

"If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good." -Maya Angelou

Relationships


The Stormgrass Pavilion

 
Inyel Stormgrass
Image Inyel is a man in his early 30s; the Ankal of his pavilion, between his two wives, five children, and responsibilities, he is often busy. Despite that, he always found a few minutes for Aster, and was always kind to her, even when he got impatient. She will always be grateful to him for taking her into his pavilion.
(NPC*)

Skills: Leadership (35), Hunting (50), Riding: Horse (45), Weapon: Shortbow (30), Webbing (35), Wilderness Survival: Plains (40)
 
Nara Stormgrass
Image Nara is a middle-aged woman of the Stormgrass pavilion, and essentially became Asterope's mentor. She took Aster under her wing, guiding and helping her, and Aster became deeply fond of her for it. A patient but stern woman, she tried to convince Aster to stay with the Drykas when she decided it was time to leave.
(NPC*)

Skills: Herbalism (50), Medicine (55), Riding: Horse (30), Teaching (35)


Met Along the Way
(To be filled in the future)

Animal Companions

Name: Navi (Heirloom) Image
Species/Breed: Dog/Mixed
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Status: Deceased as of spring 518 AV

Deities

Devoted
Asterope worships these deities fairly regularly; she feels deeply about them, and they affect her life profoundly in some way.
 
Syna
Image As a daughter of Syna, Asterope is devoted to the sun Goddess. She is the only Goddess that Aster actually actively worships; she misses Syna and her domain in the Ukalas sorely and longs to return.


Adored
Aster may pray to or worship these deities on certain occasions; they are special to her in one way or another.
 
Leth
Image While Aster does not worship Leth, she has a genuine affection for him given that he is Syna's lover. After her fall, she has become somewhat frustrated with the God; while it is not his fault, she now almost loathes his approach as she is forced into her mortal body when he takes over the sky.
 
Rakkeli
ImageAster has a very newfound appreciation and respect for Rak'keli given her recent interest and work in medicine/herbalism. She admires the Goddess for what she does, and while she doesn't exactly worship Rak'keli, Asterope will usually say a small word to her before and after she has helped someone; particularly so when it has required a lot of work or the injury/illness was severe.
 
Zintila
Image Despite having fallen to the level of an Alvina because of her loss of power, Aster still has a certain admiration for Zintila; if anything, Asterope's own fall has created a feeling of affection for the Alvina. While she doesn't worship her, Syna's fondness for the Goddess-turned-Alvina as well as Aster's love for the stars and constellations is the reason for her general respect regarding Zintila.


Respected
These are deities that Aster knows of that for some reason or another, she admires, but has little to no interaction with.
 
Caiyha
Image
Aster has grown to harbour a deep respect and love for nature during her time on Mizahar, which increases the more she learns; for these reasons, she admires Caiyha greatly.
 
Ionu
Image Only recently has Aster had any reason to pay any attention whatsoever to Ionu; with her move to Alvadas, however, she has been forced to take the God/dess into consideration. Asterope holds a wary respect for Ionu and their city, though she can perhaps become exasperated with the antics caused by both.

 
Kihala
ImageSimilar to Caiyha, her time in the mortal plane and her experience with injury, illness, and sometimes death has cultivated a deep respect for life in Aster. She respects the Goddess deeply for the things she has created and the life she brings forth.
 
Tanroa
Image Aster has a deep respect for Tanroa; as the one who appointed both Syna and Leth, as well as given Asterope's ability to age things, the Goddess is held in an extremely high regard by Aster.
