Postby Vetari Violet on August 24th, 2013, 7:45 am

Vetari Violet


Race: Symenestra
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Birthday: Day 7 of Autumn, 492 AV
Birthplace: Kalinor

Appearance: Vetari exhibits many of the common traits of a Symenestra; long hair the color of cobwebs and skin the color of ivory, adorned with golden eyes. He wears the common silken body wraps under the chitinous armor of the Symenestra, but always under a cloak of red, held together with a broach with a bloodstone as its centerpiece. This red cloak is meant to symbolize his devotion for his god, Viratas.

Character Concept

Personality – Vetari is a kind and generous soul, with a tendency for self-deprecation when he feels he has not accomplished enough. He’s a very logical and organized mind, and when things do not go according to plan he can have trouble regrouping to establish a new plan of action. He’s far from spontaneous, and prefers to think on important decisions, weighing the possibilities and the relative pros and cons. He is quick to make a joke, and has a quiet and scholarly sense of humor. However, he is not above more crude forms of humor, though he despises pranks and cruel jokes that come at the expense of others. When tensions rise he prefers to speak and make sense of a situation to fighting, and thinks that most disputes should be settled on the debate stage rather than the battlefield. In a time of war, Vetari would attempt to come at the end of a battle, to heal wounded soldiers from both sides. Much of his life is defined by his devotion to Viratas, as he has molded his mindset and practices around his declarations.
Ethics – Vetari has a tendency to follow the edict of Viratas, that the greater good must always prevail and that the end does justify the means. In this way, Vetari has taken it upon himself to make the whole of Mizahar a better place, one person at a time. Self-sacrifice for the greater good is how this often manifests, and more than once in his travels he has bought meals for beggers, cripples and the poor, and given them their fortunes for free.
Likes – Vetari is a bibliophile, and believes that knowledge is one of the most valuable things to give or receive. He loves to be proven wrong, as it provides an opportunity to learn and grow, and is often accompanied by an interesting debate. Red is by far his favorite color, and he almost always wears his red silk cloak. He enjoys sweet fruits and spicy stews, as intense flavors provide him with an enlightening sensory experience. Though he cannot yet cook for himself, he adores the culinary arts and would like to find a way to make the food of his people more palatable to other races.
Dislikes – Vetari hates bloodshed, and is hard pressed to see it as necessary. However, when it is, he understands its value and is able to accept it. He hates to see talent go to waste, and will often give of himself so that others might rise to greatness. He loathes to see poverty and riches in close proximity, and will do whatever he must to provide for the unfortunate, at cost to himself or others who might be deemed unworthy of their riches. He dislikes the proud, believing that all with blood are equals, and that we will all die in the end. None is above the other, so why pretend?

Character History

Viratas was born, a pureblood Symenestra, with the deadly bite that the infants of his race are so well known for having. His mother died from his birth, believing that death must make way for life. She placed him in the hands of Daratur Violet, the priest that had aided in his birth. He was to hold onto the boy until his father returned from the Harvest later in the season…but his father never returned. As such, Daratur brought up the boy as his own, grooming him to someday become a priest himself.

Location: Kalinor

House: Permanent Homes are made from stalactites or stones that hang from the cavern ceiling. There are no glass windows, and rooms inside are separated by hanging cloth. The home is roughly 20x20 in size, pear shaped, and includes a hearth, bunk, chest, chair, and small table.

The houses in Kalinor don’t look anything like what you are used to. They aren’t square, they aren’t angular, and they don’t stand on the ground. Instead they are roughly pear shaped or shaped like a drop and hang from the ceiling. They don’t have windows, and the entrance is located at or near the very top of the house. From there a silk rope usually leads down, towards the living quarters. Symenestra homes usually don’t have a lot of rooms, but niches in the walls where the individual members of a Web store their things or sleep behind curtains. The houses are made of stalactites or stones, and they are connected to each other by thick cords of silk.
