Nya Winters

Physical Appearance:

Nya far stronger in body and spirit than she looks. To those that know her true racial identity, the cat-like movements and grace she displays is clearly evident. Nya likes to be higher than the surrounding terrain. Her moss green eyes miss very little that goes on around her, and like her base creature the Talderian Forest Cat, Nya is a good at moving through crowds and blending in - either in a large city like Syliras or the forests surrounding Mizahar. She has a long sleek fall of brindled hair. Nya tends to hide behind her hair to conceal her otherwise penetrating stare.

In her Forest Cat guise, Nya is a monstrous dire-sized molted black great cat that has patterning or rosettes of brown and moss green. Her fur shimmers as she moves, often playing tricks on the eyes and blending her neatly into the forest around her. In the city or grasslands, she is obviously out of her element and can be very vulnerable.

Forest cats have a naturally hypnotic gaze and often capture their prey by locking gazes with them before pouncing. Her eyes, however, are a soft green that blends into the colors of the forest. In her Kelvic Form, she has a huge almost luminous gaze. As a human, her pupils are slightly more cat-like diamond shaped than rounded, giving the keen observer a clue she might be kelvic.

Upon cursory inspection, some will think her hair is black or dark brown. But the truth is its mottled through with greens, browns and golds. It is the same dark (almost black) coat her forest cat coat has (complete with nearly invisible spotting called rosettes) which give her kelvic form perfect camouflage in the wilds. Nya has long slender fingers, a love of intricately woven fabrics, and enjoys her meat raw. She often relies heavily on her sense of smell to tell her who is who, and can often figure out other kelvics and creatures like Dhani.



Character Concept:

When Nya was younger, the Forest Cat had a noted lack of understanding as to what is right and what is wrong. This was not uncommon for her age and race. Kelvic take the 'terrible twos' to an all new extreme when they are out 'finding themselves' as Nya was doing. Her parents tried to guide her, but in the end they decided it would be best to have her strike out into the world and find someone to bond with and take up the mantle of their ethics. They tried to 'foster' her out to people but no one seemed suitable, so they simply packed her bags and sent her on her way. It was either that or their own union was going to suffer under their very precocious daughter's antics.

The true problem, Nya felt, was that every single person her parents thought she might bond to ended up being more afraid of her Kelvic form than they let on. Having a Dire creature, especially a fierce cat, tends to invoke caution and concern which then in turn ruins the potential for bonding. The whole situation was fine with Nya, as she had a great relationship with both her parents and periodically wandered back to Lormar Tower see them.

Nya takes 'not worried about it' to a new extreme. She simply isn't ever worried. Perhaps having no concept of whats 'the law' and what isn't helps tremendously. When she gets hungry, she eats. She has no qualms about what it is she does eat and could easily be considered a cannibal since she has no qualms about eating someone who threatens her. This is probably another factor in her failure to bond early on. Her mother tried to break her of the habit but failed completely when Nya refused to believe rotting as a corpse in the ground was preferable to filling someone's belly. But for all of her eating habits, Nya has a very normal not overtly out spoken personality. As a human she is gentle, often kind, and somewhat wary of humans. Because her kelvic form is so strong, it makes her human form feel unbalanced and vulnerable to her - so crowds are not easy for her to deal with. Often, this can cause trouble. Much of it she's excused for (in her youth) because of her race, since Kelvics are commonplace within Sylira and people understand inherently they don't play by the same rules - not out of necessity, but out of their very nature.

In other places, its not so understandable. And, of course, as she's aged, her personality has changed a great deal due to her life experiences and the relationships shes formed with others.

Having been touched by Zulrav since before birth, Nya spends a great deal of time pondering the weather and playing with the winds. Sometimes, to her it seems her only true friends are the breezes that play among the trees. She speaks to them as if they are companions, and listens for the voice of their Lord with eager watchfulness because Zulrav broadens her narrow bestial world considerably with his influence. She likes the winds, is drawn to the power of storms, and feels at home among them.



Character History:

Nya was born to Zilvia Winters a prominent sorceress in the bronze woods. Zilvia's constant companion, mount, and protector is Ulvic. She bought Ulvic at a horse fair in Syliras not realizing the stallion was anything but a mere nicely put together red dun horse trained enough to be a sturdy mount. The stallion, while himself being a great deal more trouble than he was worth, eventually took his human form and charmed Silvia's heart. They've lived together ever since, with Ziliva working hard to find a way to lengthen Ulvic's life. She has somewhat succeeded, being something of a prominent mage herself.

When Nya was born, her parents were both startled at her nature for it is rare that a Kelvic breeds true Kelvics. Ziliva taught Nya what she could to protect her, which equated to a great deal of Personal Magics in the realm of hypnotism. Nya was a natural, having that unique Talderian Forest Cat stare already. Most Kelvics do not have a good childhood because they are oftentimes met with horror or misunderstanding when what should be a normal babe eats ten times its usual body weight and grows to adulthood in a single year. Nya was lucky she had Ulvic to guide her and show Ziliva there is nothing to fear.

When Nya was two, her parents escorted her out the front door and hard released her out into the world. She wandered a while, most of that year, and then met Abashai on a fluke in the Wilderness. The bonding was almost instantaneous and strong, something that both Nya and Abashai were unprepared for. Later that year, after more wandering, the two were married. Close, in love, almost inseparable, there was a reason for this.

Nya and Abashai were the reincarnation of Aressa Tallshade and Jefrek a Witness Mage companion of hers. They discovered this answering a call from Zulrav and battling the creatures of the bloodsink, a famous hiding place of one of Aressa's artifacts.

Areesa Tallshade was a famous Alahean wizard who lived before the Valterrian. She was known as the White Enchantress because of her white robes and her ability to craft magical items of great value and significance, most notably the lost Anvil of Souls. She is one of the only pre-Valterrian wizards to still be remembered by more than a few scholars in modern Mizahar. Her items are highly sought after, and every now and then one appears on the market, though they often turn out to be fakes, either nonmagical or crafted by one of her apprentices. It is estimated that a high-level Tallshade original could be worth millions of gold Miza, hence the constant treasure hunt for her items.


Nya and Abashai defeated an incredibly powerful enemy there and eventually recovered the Powercube and its Outling sentient guardian Lukas. Having stashed the Powercube successfully in the Wildlands, later the following year after facing death by Abashai's hand and loosing a child, both the duo were captured by the Ebonstryfe in the process of destroying a Rhysol Temple that had manifested outside of Syliras.

They spent a year in prison in Ravok. This was their personal hell. As the time passed Nya and Abashai were broken down, and their bonds broken - both marriage and that of their kelvic bond. Abashai became an agent of the Ebonstryfe and was marked with a singular mark of Rhysol. Nya was eventually experimented on then sold into slavery to a noble house as a pet.

Eventually they escaped. Abashai escaped with his young son - from an Blacksun Priestess - and Nya with her life. Abashai returned south to his homeland of Eyktol to deliver Micah to family to raise. Nya returned to her parents home - Lormar Tower - and found it in ruin and her family gone. This was well past the Djed Storm of 512 so she assumed the storm was the ravisher of the tower. She is unaware if her family is still alive.

Nya remained at Lormar for some time. It wasn't until the Spring of 516 when Abashai reappeared that she got herself together enough - recovering enough from the abuse at Ravok - to take some interest in life. By that time they'd heard of Syka. Still unbonded, still unmarried and recovering, the two of them traveled together to Syka to see if they couldn't start fresh again.

It also happens that Syka is the closest location to the next artifact Nya wishes to find that she feels was once hers... The Najim Pearl: an item rumored to allow a wizard to keep as many Familiars as he wanted, as opposed to only one.

Only time will tell if Shai and Nya return to their previous roles and return to the path they were once on. Time has been hard on both of them and the pathway forward is not set.




Special Attributes:

Because Nya is a kelvic, she has several special abilities. She's also received a curse in thread that needs to be resolved eventually.

  • Shapeshifting: Talderian Forest Cat (Dire)
  • Heightened Senses:Emphasis on Sense of Smell, Nightvision
  • Kelvic Features:Her brindled hair is unusual.
  • Special Requirements: Large quantities of food preferably raw meat
  • The Curse: "The curse is such that whenever Nya looks into a reflective surface; mirror, pool of water, etc., she sees a darker, twisted reflection looking back. The reflection in human form looks almost normal save for her eyes. Her eyes are hateful, hungry and devoid of intelligence; they are the eyes of a ravenous monster. The reflection in feline form is also monstrous to behold; jagged, broken teeth stained with blood, wild, un-thinking eyes with matted and mangy fur.

    Nya is the only one who can see the reflections and from time to time, when she sees them, she hears the barely audible words of Calinthar telling her how much of a monster she is and how he is the only one that can save her."

"Like all of us in this storm between birth and death, I can wreak no great changes on the world, only small changes for the better, I hope, in the lives of those I love."


Home Sweet Home


Syka

Within the settlement of Syka, Nya has been allotted five acres of land with one acre along the beach and the other four stretching up into the jungle. So far the development of structures on the piece of land has been minimal with just a bungalow style open aired home in the trees above the beach. Nya's land is adjacent to Abashai's with their living areas touching together.

When Nya was selecting land, she was careful to select a piece with fruit trees, flowing water, and fertile soil.


Syliras

In range of Syliras, Nya has taken up residence in a cave she's discovered on the flanks of the Cobalt Mountains. She doesn't mind living rough, it suits her more than finding someplace in the city to purchase or living in a tent. The interior is spacious, and though she has to share it with a few bats and insects, it is clean, dry and has a natural vent for allowing for a fire if she wants to be human. Slowly, over time, she will populate the cave with her things and some creature comforts of her own. Within the cave, she's gathered a desk, chair, writing materials, a chest, tall candles, and a bed of fur.

Faith

Postby Nya Winters on August 24th, 2009, 1:31 am

.
Image
"Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.”


Faith & Gnosis


Gnosis Marks

  • Zulrav: 2 Marks (Stormwarden)


Nya's soul, first and foremost, belongs to the Storm Lord. Marked from birth, Nya, the forest cat traveled at the tender age of two in order to find a bondmate. During those travels, she came across an evil so deep, so bent on destroying humanity, that even Zulrav himself wanted the evil stopped. Searching for six priceless artifacts from Tallshade, one of the original Seven Robes, a new group of Seven Robes have arose. This group, bent on power and destruction, want to acquire that which Tallshade hid eons ago. Zulrav, having an interest in humanity, has charged Nya (and undoubtedly others) with retrieving these items before the Seven Robes can. Saving a high ranking priest of Zulrav, a Stormwarden, Nya received her second mark - one of Aurin's own - after allowing him to die with dignity and in peace.


Faith

There are those that go on faith alone. They believe in the intangible and are far better for it, comforted in knowing they are watched by invisible eyes and judged by the thoughts they have in their hearts and minds. Nya is not one of those people though. She believes in things she can feel, touch, taste and smell. She believes in the voices that whisper to her, guiding her on her way, because her strength is a different sort of strength. It is the faith that the wind will always blow, that blood will always flow, and that at the end of the day, it wasn't your intention, but rather, it was what you actually did that really counts. For her, there is only the moment. Be it the heart of a storm or the fierceness of a fight, time stretches neither forwards or backwards for her. If it did, certain things would be unbearable. Since becoming bonded to Abashai, Nya has also developed a fierce sense of right and wrong. She calculates her actions far more carefully than she did prior to being bonded, and has learned a great deal about not only societies laws, but about the law of honor.

Nya's Pride

Postby Nya Winters on August 24th, 2009, 1:46 am

.
Image
“I've never met a person I haven't felt some sort of passion for - love, friendship, loyalty, respect or hatred.”


Nya's Pride


Introduction

This list used to be a great deal longer, but Nya has been through a lot in the past few years and has been in isolation. She considers her pride made up currently of only three people. That is to say, only three people she can fully trust.

Nya hopes a new life in Syka will bring more friends and open her circle of trust further.


Abashai

Image

Name: Abashai
Relationship: Ex-Bondmate & Ex-Husband
Birthdate: Season of Spring, 20th Day, 479 AV
Age: 30
Race: Benshira
Status: PC


Abstract: Abashai is strength incarnate. By saying that, I do not mean he is physically the strongest. What I mean is that Shai has taught me so much about faith, loyalty, and honor. This is inner strength. I have known wisdom in my life, but with extreme intelligence often comes other burdens. Abashai's gift is a deep and forgiving love that makes both of us so much stronger together. I thought when I finally bonded that my bondmate would be my whole life. That is true in a sense, but it is more that he makes my life whole. I could not love a man more than I love my Shai.

Since our unbonding, things have been strained between us. We are working on rebuilding a relationship and regaining a friendship that was somehow lost.



Zilvia Winters

ImageName: Zilvia Seanavari Winters
Relationship: Mother
Birthdate: Season of Summer, 85th Day, 481 AV
Age: 28
Race: Human
Status: NPC

Abstract: Sometimes considered a legacy mage, Zilva was born to along time family of powerful mages that have traditionally occupied Lormar Tower. Her original name was Lormar, but having been married to a mage when she was young, her surname changed to Winters. Zilvia bore a set of twins and a son that all were taken from her in a twist of fate and an ironic surge of family jealousy. Disease took her first husband and the remains of her family, leaving her alone in Lormar.

Zilvia is an accomplished mage, wise in the ways of reimancy and a great many of the world magics. She is a scholar and has dedicated herself to finding lost knowledge.

Nya is unsure if Zilvia survived the Spring 512 Djed Storm that ruined Lormar Tower.


Ulvik Winters

ImageName: Ulvik Winters
Relationship: Father
Birthdate: Season of Winter, 72nd Day, 504 AV
Age: 5
Race: Kelvic - Bloodbane Horse
Status: NPC

Abstract: Nya is unsure if Ulvic survived the Spring 512 Djed Storm or not. When she last visted her home at Lormar Tower, there was signs of the tower and stables being completely abandoned.

Regardless, Ulvic was a surprise in Zilvia's life. Unruly and cheap, he was purchased at a horse fair to provide the mage transportation through the wildlands to get her home. Unknown to her, the mount turned out to be a kelvic and one that she indeed fell madly in love with. Ulvic bonded deeply with Zilvia and lived contentedly at her side, wise in his own right.

Forest Cats

Talderian Forest Cats

A Brief Overview

Talderian Forest Cats are a unique species to Taldera around the area of Karjin. Home of monstrous dire animals, the Talderian Forest Cat is roughly the equivalent to a heavily muscled horse. Ranging from 14hh at the shoulders to more than 18hh, Nya fits right into the middle of that rage at a tall 15.2hh. While young Talderian Forest Cats can weigh in at five to eight hundred pounds, mature cats can weigh in to over a thousand with the bigger males weighing in near the fifteen hundred pound mark.

Talderian Forest Cats have all the grace and balance of a normal cat, though their weight limits their ability to climb. They do enjoy higher ground and a natural love of water much like any other breed of big cat.

Their coat colors are often brindled (black, brown, green, orange, and white) with some transition during the seasons. In the winter Talderian Forest Cats are paler, brighter, as if the white that occasionally molting their fur wants to camouflage them in the snow. Their fur gets extremely thick and nearly waterproof. In the summer they are richer hued, more vibrant, and often more golden and green in their brindling. During this seasonal transition, their coat is smoother and more sleek. Within individuals, Talderian Forest Cats can be on the paler or darker side with some leaning more towards black or even more towards white with just the most subtle hint of brindling. True Albinism or Melanistism have never been seen among these animals. Some pattern variations in the Talderian Forest Cat's brindled coat include spotting, dotting, including the nearly invisible spotting called rosettes. These individuals do fluctuate coat colors with season but not as drastically as their middle ground kin.

Forest Cat fur seems to shimmers as they move, often playing tricks on the eyes and blending them neatly into the terrain around them. Talderian Forest Cats do much better in dense forest than they do out in plains or desert regions. Their smaller Syliran kin - the forest cat - fairs better in open woodland and grassland than the Talderian variety does.

Forest cats have a naturally hypnotic gaze and often capture their prey by locking gazes with them before pouncing. The eyes of a Talderian Forest Cat can be golden, green, or blue. Sometimes heterochromia iridium (two different-colored eyes within a single individual) and heterochromia iridis (a variety of color within a single iris) has been seen among them, though the colors always remain among the three known hues. Talderian Forest Cats have large expressive eyes which tend to be their most notable feature other than their size.

Enjoying a lifespan from thirty to forty years, Talderian Forest Cats rarely breed. Mating for life, Talderian Forest Cats often stake out territory in pairs and remain together until one dies. They will sometimes re-mate if this happens. The females go into heat once a year and then gestate up to two hundred days giving birth to only one or two kittens. Because of this long gestational period, Talderian Forest Cats usually only successfully give birth between age two and twenty and then if successfully reproduce don't impregnate again for a year or two after the birth of their kittens. They will nurse for the first six months of the kitten's life and will not go into heat again until the kitten is weaned. The kitten or kittens will stay with the parents from one to five years, often overlapping territories with them once they leave their parent's side. It is not uncommon for a Talderian Forest Cats to have one or two generations of offspring under their care in a pride situation.

Talderian Forest Cats are however fairly uncommon. An area must be rife with wildlife of sufficient size to support such prides. As a result, often Talderian Forest Cats are scroungers. They will eat anything from larger rodents to livestock. They will even attempt dangerous prey such as Talderian Bull Elk if they have sufficient numbers to hunt with. One Talderian Elk will feed a whole host of Talderian Cats for a significant amount of time. The cats will bury their excess food or otherwise camouflage it and eat off the corpse repeatedly until the meat begins to sour.
