Snaeha Datura

Postby Snaeha Datura on March 29th, 2013, 11:11 am

Snaeha Datura
See-NAY-ah Dat-ur-rah
Age 23, born on the fiftieth day of Winter, 490.
Sex Female.
Height 5'5.
Weight 113lbs.


Snaeha represents her father's people quite well: she is long of limb, with fine grey skin and inquisitive amethyst eyes. The only betrayal of her mother's people is her dull red hair, however this has always been Snaeha’s favourite trait about herself - being as modest as she is. She stands a little shorter than her male siblings at 5’5, though like many individuals who share the company of those taller, Snaeha more than makes up for her lack of height in her ardent attitude and cool sarcasm.

Her face is oval shaped, with high cheekbones and almond-shaped eyes. She takes great care in her appearance, believing that first impressions matter hugely and are often made on how one looks. She is commonly found garbed in the typical Symenestra clothing; fine silks in an adornment of colours, though purple is her favourite (she believes it compliments her eyes so marvellously). Jewels and other shiny, precious stones, are amongst Snaeha's favourite things in life. Perhaps this emphasises her rather materialistic attitude... But then again, she would argue it simply shows that she has good taste.

A little shallow, Snaeha is perhaps not the most selfless person you’ll meet. Though she’ll do anything for her family and her people, on a day-to-day basis, she’s loathe to go out of her way in favour for strangers -- unless she believes it will somehow benefit herself in return. Her interest and career in medicine is treated with very much the same mindset; the surrogates are a necessary evil, the children they birth are the continuation of her heritage, and Snaeha is the graceful, talented, beautiful medic who makes sure the right person dies. She’s not above lying or deception either, if the end outweighs the means, but she nevertheless has her own warped sense of a moral code and, as long as she does not break her own rules, Snaeha will argue against anyone who tells her she is in the wrong.

Faith is incredibly important to her, as is the purity of her family bloodline. She is a dedicated follower of Viratas, and like many of her kind, Snaeha regards blood as the precious source of life, and thus believes it should not be spilled hastily -- at least not without a decent enough cause. She frowns upon those - Myrians, Ziths, and other beast like races - who appear to take pride in spilling blood mercilessly and without good reason. Because of this, Snaeha is somewhat of a pacifist, avoiding physical conflict by any other means -- including hypnotism. Alongisde Viratas, Snaeha also admires Ionu and Sagallius, and their respective ability to influence and manipulate.

A fan of all things beautiful (make-up, acrobatics, dance, fine clothes, herself...) Snaeha gives great pride in her appearance and will spend bells at a time following through her meticulous skin, hair, and body care regime. And yes, it pays off thankyouverymuch, had you not seen that shine to her hair?

The Datura plant is a delicate looking flower, though it is highly toxic, causing hallucinogenic episodes and, if left untreated for a long time, even death. Other effects of Datura ingestion include strange, out of character behaviour, a dislike of bright lights, dilated pupils and amnesia. It is perhaps unsurprising, then, that the poison secreted by the Datura family creates similar symptoms in their victims. There is some variation between the three children, however; Dorav's victims seem to have no control over their body temperature, suffering terrible hyperthermia one moment and sweating uncontrollable the next. Duston, being of pure Sym blood, appears to have the most effective venom for a quick death by causing heart palpations and eventually a cardiac arrest (this has always frustrated his sister, who dislikes being out-staged by her younger brother). For Snaeha's victim, her venom causes delirium and intense hallucinations. Should her victim remain untreated for long enough (at least a day for a human male), they will die a slow, confused death.

Viratas Like all Symenestra, Snaeha's primary deity is the God of blood. She perceives Viratas as the God of all living things, and the connection between them. Snaeha believe that work as a midwife allows her to work in Vitatas' domain, by preserving the blood of her people.
Ionu Whereas Viratas is worshipped out of taught admiration, the God of Illusions is a deity that Snaeha has come to appreciate on her own. To her, illusions are everywhere, and as such Ionu is much like Viratas in that his work connects all humans (and sub races) together.
Sagallius It is out of a mixture of intimidation and respect that Snaeha has come to worship the God of Manipulation. She believes his work is close to that of Ionu's, and as such Sagallius is worth her attention.


Veldron Datura had always liked redheads. That fiery nature, twinned with those dark red locks, really got the male Symenestra excited. So he was absolutely thrilled when his older brother returned to Kalinor after his harvest with an Inartan woman. "For you, brother." He had whispered in Veldron's ear as he introduced his new friends to his family. Her name was Alyssa and Veldron delighted in treating her like his favourite little pet. If the redhead knew what her grisly fate awaited her, she never let on. Veldron admired her for such bravery - or ignorance. It was a sad thing to watch the woman die, but when Veldron saw the shock of red hair on his new daughter's head, Alyssa’s agonising death seemed more than worth it.

The Datura web is made of Veldron, his wife Narissa and their children: eldest son Dorav, only daughter Snaeha and younger son Druston. For Dorav as well as Snaeha, the couple used surrogate mothers, though by the time they decided to have a third and final child, Narissa, who had always silently questioned the harvesting practise, was finally swayed by the Esterians and decided to carry her own child. Veldron was initially against the idea, but the love he bore for his wife was enough for him to oblige her wishes. Fortunately, Snaeha did not have to watch her mother die; Narissa survived the pregnancy and after several weeks of gentle healing, she was healthy once more. If Snaeha were to be brutally honest, it was witnessing her own mother going through the trauma of child birth (and the long, slow, healing process afterwards) that initially made Snaeha interested in medicine.

Being the second son of his own lineage, Veldron took on the role of leading religious ceremonies in his youth. This fascination and passion for the Symenestra religion continued well into his later years, and thus all three of his children are avid worshippers of Viratas. Snaeha, in particular, strives to live her life by the rules she believes her deity lay: living in peace and community within her fellow people, but not fearing to shed the blood of an outsider to protect her kind.
