Avela Sallis


Race: Konti
Gender: Female
Age: 25 (roughly 15-16 in human years)
Birthday: 45th of Summer, 492 AV.
Birthplace: Alvadas


Avela has the long silver hair and delicate frame common to the Konti, with large blue eyes that seem to take up most of her face. She hardly ever ties her hair back, letting it fall in waves, which adds to her waif-like appearance. Silvery scales decorate her feet and legs, the backs of her hands, her back and her neck, with a thin line of scales down her forehead. Her fingers and toes are webbed, and her gills are on her neck, usually hidden by her fall of white hair.

Character Concept

Avela likes to be where the action is, not in the center of it, but in the background observing. She is drawn to bright colors and celebrations, and likes to read and hear stories about adventures. Avela often dreams of having adventures herself, but is too timid to take the first step on an adventure she knows she needs to have--the journey to Mura. This conflict between her fear of the unknown and her desire to live life to the fullest often has Avela taking on the role of an observer, letting herself be carried along by fate instead of making any choices for herself. Naturally non-confrontational, Avela refuses to confront even herself on this, often making excuses for why she hasn't left the city for Mura yet (she's too young, it's too dangerous, this isn't the right time...etc.) Even living on her own is not something she would have done had her stepmother not driven her to it. Still considered an adolescent among her race, at the end of the day, Avela is a young woman with a lot of potential, but also a lot of growing up to do.

Character History

Avela's story starts with her mother, Ayana, a Konti from Mura who followed the Call to find a mate and left the island. After a long journey, most of she recorded in the journal she left her daughter, Ayana found a mate in one Talien Sallis of Alvadas. The two of them fell in love, and Ayana ended up staying in Alvadas longer than expected. From their union, Avela was born. Talien, an Alvad born and bred, was not at all put off by Avela's complete lack of resemblance to him, considering her his daughter. When it came time for Ayana to return to Mura, Talien insisted on coming along.

But something happened. Barely a week out of Alvadas, the three of them came under attack. Ayana died as a result of that conflict. Heartbroken, and unable to continue on to Mura, Talien turned back with Avela, vowing to raise her himself. And so, Avela grew up in Alvadas with her human family, an arrangement that suited her nicely. She might have stayed in her father's home forever had her father not married, close to eleven years ago. While Avela and her stepmother have a cordial relationship, it became clear relatively early on that Avela's stepmother preferred her own children to Avela. After Avela's twentieth birthday, her stepmother became more and more vocal about Avela moving out and finding a place of her own, perhaps opening up a candlemaking business of her own. Finally, in the Autumn of 517, Avela finally caved.

It would just be for a little while, she told herself, moving into her own cottage in Alvadas. Just until she was a little older. She just needed a little more money, a little more experience, and then she would go to Mura. Like a real Konti.

Just for a little while...

Avela's NPCs

The Sallis Family

Talien Sallis
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Age: 46
Birthday: 57th of Summer, 471 AV
Occupation: Scribe
Description: Avela's father. As a young man, Talien was a timid scholar who liked to read. His life was irrevocably changed when he met the Konti woman Ayana. The two of them fell in love, and after a year of pregnancy, Ayana gave birth to their daughter, Avela. Talien, who had previously been too afraid to leave Alvadas, summoned up his courage to leave with Ayana. But when that ended in disaster, he brought Avela back to the city. He hasn't left since. In his middle age, he's grown somewhat portly and balding, but he's still a kind, quiet, scatter-brained man. Anyone who looks at him and his daughter would swear there was no resemblance, but anyone spending time with either of them would see the resemblance easily. Talien has Avela's scatterbrained, good-natured manner, as well as her fear of the unknown.

Sabina Sallis
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Age: 34
Birthday: 1st of Spring, 484 AV
Occupation: Seamstress
Description: A tall, imposing woman, Sabina is Talien's second love, and Avela's stepmother. While Sabina and Avela technically mean each other no ill will, they clash frequently. Sabina keeps a neat house, and Avela, who Sabina thinks of as a perpetual child, is out of place in it. Avela generally feels as though she can never do right by her stepmother, and so does her best to stay out of Sabina's way.

Kairen Sallis
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Age: 10
Birthday: 89th of Spring, 508 AV
Occupation: None
Description: Avela's younger half-brother and a perpetual 'little snot'. Kairen is at the age where he believes he's grown up, and he thinks he has the lamest older sister in the world. He spends his time running around with his friends and shirking his chores, or sticking close to Avela only to criticize her for everything she does or get lectured by her. The siblings actually care deeply for each other, despite all that.

Nerea Sallis
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Age: 4
Birthday: 22nd of Autumn, 513 AV
Occupation: None
Description: Avela's younger half-sister. Nerea is still very much a young child, but it's already clear that she's more timid than Kairen, with none of his boisterous personality. Avela adores Nerea and dotes on her whenever she has the chance, but since Nerea is only four, she usually stays close to her mother.

Jasper Combs
Gender: Male
Race: Ghost (formerly human)
Age: Unknown (died in his 40s)
Birthday: Unknown
Description: Jasper is mostly known as the ghost of a harmless drunk, who occasionally haunts the areas outside of the places he visited in life, like the Stallion's Rear and the Unnamye, shouting the occasional slurred insult or rude comment at people who pass by. Rumor has it that he isn't a bad guy once you get to know him, not that many people have. Those who knew him in life wonder why Jasper did not pass on after his death. After all, he didn't seem like he had much to live for. But if there's a bigger reason why Jasper maintains his hold on life, he isn't telling...
