         I am of the salted sun,
          skin which browns to earth;
            desert & canyon blood;
       my grass-sea bones remind me
                 of a language my mouth has
          f o r g o t t e n—

               I offer it to the l i v i n g
                 who mourn the d e a d

                        inspired by casandra lopez    
         Rufio's appearance has undergone a radical shaping after spending the Spring & Summer of 517AV wandering the Sea of Grass. Spending her days with strangers—sharing her wit, charm, wisdom and fortune-telling in exchange for shelter—it is the people she has met which has had an impact on her, outwardly and in.

        Once where her wiry ebony hair was cropped short and unruly, Rufio has grown it out and a summer-time lover has woven blonde horse hair dreadlocks in, believing it would attract good fortune for her companion as they parted ways. Seasons spent living life under Syna's generous rays in the sea of grass has been a tougher life than she was used to in the city, and has forged her—5'2", 168lbs—body stronger, made her face leaner. Warmth radiates from her dusky Benshira complexion, which has grown earthier in the hot seasons and is scattered generously with freckles, courtesy of her Drykas father. As Rufio returns to Endrykas she looks as wild as she ever did, yet tempered by a feminine vibe, with three gold nose-rings, a tendency for bare feet, a bold resting stance and windmarks etched vibrantly into her left arm, Rufio still poses a striking drykas semblance. Her seeking ochre gaze now dances with a sense of adventure, and the mysterious.

     ENFPA Free-spirit, creative, intuitive, charming, independent.

        A free-spirit with an 'earthy' vibe about her, Rufio lives life through a prism of emotion, compassion & mysticism, always looking for deeper meaning. Independent, to a fault, but sociable and invested in creating connections with others. After spending two seasons wandering the sea of grass and living with outlying pavilions, Rufio has cultivated her confidence and discovered her love of people and their stories, which is where her compassion lies. By no means a leader, Rufio will follow those she believes are strong and faithful of heart. Energetic & passionate with a 'boyish' charm to her, she dances between a calm 'go with the flow' vibe and a spontaneous, mischievous humor that can catch the most stoic off guard. Where before her wanderings, Rufio was burdened by grief, loss and fears, after her soul-searching in the sea of grass, she feels more grounded, and freer, than ever.

ImageLiving on the generosity of the wilderness, Caiyha has a significant place in Rufio's prayers.
a vision from caiyha
"...there came a warmth and the quick movement of shadows dancing back and forth against the ground in the firelight. Music and sweet burning scents overwhelmed her senses before a familiar thundering of hooves took her vision to the Sea of Grass where the wild horses and historical figures of her pavilion roamed free; her Strider waiting for her. As she raised her hands to caress the horse, she found her limbs to be decorated with the unmistakable etchings of the Drykas Windmarks. As the Strider turned its head to glance at something, tangled in the thick of its wild mane was the small, carved figurine of a lion and below that a circular piece of flat gold with its centre missing."

Image Rufio regards Zulrav with fearful awe after[/googlefont] witnessing a man struck by lightning. She prays to him for courage & protection.

Image While Rufio believes that the Drykas spirit reincarnates through The Web, she believes Semele is the mother of their corporeal bodies & will await them with Dira at the end of each life. She prays to Semele for protection.

Image Rufio holds Yahal quietly in her heart to honour her Benshira heritage. She prays to him for conviction & faith.

Image As a fortune-teller, Rufio feels an affinity to The Moon & reflection. She prays to Leth for wisdom, perception & peace.

BORN 32winter 495av The child of a benshira woman, Eb'lyn, and the drykas traveller, Davyd Wildmane of the Emerald Clan, who loved and stole her away to Endrykas.
Fall 506av Davyd succumbs to a restless heart, what the family believe is the 'Wandering Wildmane' curse. He has been irritable, feverish and rambling of late, pulling out his old maps and odd trinkets he brought back from lands unknown. At dawn one day, he vanishes into the Sea of Grass.
Winter 507av Heartbroken and struggling in a land not her own without her husband, Eb'lyn falls into deep depression. She spends her days lethargically in bed, and her nights staring south into the grassland, pining for home. As Winter comes to its close, she falls ill with a fever and dies after 3 days of fighting.
Arcs 507 - 515av Rufio struggles with the grief of losing her mother, though as the seasons pass, her sorrow fades and like all drykas she takes to living life with passion and meaning.
Winter 13 515av Rufio bonds with a Strider in Wanah'ite
Winter 33 515av Endrykas is attacked by a fleet of pirates, and the Wildmanes suffer heavy loss of life
Winter 92 515av Tal'c, the Wildmane Ankal, blames Rufio for the pavilion's bad luck. He banishes her
Spring 516av Rufio bonds with Ixzo a night lion kelvic
Fall 516av Rufio & Ixzo join the Stormblood pavilion and begin life in the Diamond Clan. Soon, though, zith attack the drykas, and Rufio is taken captive! Ixzo joins a small party of warriors, which set out to avenge their people and rescue those taken. Ixzo dies in the raid
Winter 516av Rufio spends the winter avoiding her grief for Ixzo's death. Suffering nightmares, she plunges herself into work and spends too much time alone
Winter 516av A drykas named Jonas Pridesun has been gathering walahk and preaching of a Dual-God. He denounces the drykas pantheon and invokes the wrath of Caiyha, Semele and Zulrav. Jonas is killed by Zulrav, and as Caiyha decrees the drykas always remember their heritage. In her awestruck moment, Rufio's grief for Ixzo breaks over the walls of denial that have held it at bay all season.
Spring 516av After witnessing the events of Winter and confronted with her grief, Rufio leaves Endrykas. Is it "The Wandering Wildmane" curse?


Fall 501av Naiya & Rufio play in the grasslands.

Image wildmane
Rufio's birth pavilion

Rufio was once close with her freckled cousins, although she often denounced the 'Wandering Wildmane' curse they so fervently believed haunted the family. When pirates attacked and members were killed in the chaos, the ankal believed the curse rang true. Fearing that Rufio had invoked it, he blamed her and cast her out of the pavilion. Rufio visited once after to say goodbye to her grandmother. Since, she has not seen them. As time passes her hurt fades.

Image ixzo
Met, bonded SPR 516
Killed, unbonded FALL 516

While their bond was short, Ixzo has left her night-lion paw-prints on Rufio's spirit. Rufio has learnt to be fierce, strong, courageous, and, a sense of pride and belonging from the kelvic. Though it has been a year since her death, the kelvic lingers in Rufio's thoughts. From the myrian's influence she seeks to learn the magic of malediction and, fearing to feel so helpless as she did the day Izxo was killed, seeks the skills of a warrior.

Image stormblood
Rufio's adopted pavilion

Here Rufio met an ankal whose deep soul reflected hers, and pavilion sisters that she felt at home with. When her bondmate was killed the following Fall, Rufio found solace in her adopted family. Though she has left them to wander the Sea of Grass—ironically fulfilling the 'Wandering Wildmane' curse—the Stormbloods are the anchor that keeps her tied to where she belongs and keeps her from disappearing like her ancestors.

Met WIN 515

Regarded with respect and admiration at his strength—within as well as in his physical prowess. Rufio finds the Stormblood ankal's presence warm, comforting and tinged with a spark that reminds her of a storm. It has her lightly intimidated, and deeply intrigued.

Met FALL 516 ↞

With hair like golden wheat, eyes like the Bluevein river in Summer and a smile as radiant as Syna's glow, Rufio thinks Jasmine is the epitome of drykas beauty. Rufio enjoys Jasmine's warm and gentle presence. One day she hopes to know her better.

Met FALL 516

Rufio feels a kindred spirit in Taurina, and cherishes her deeply thought-provoking company. The depth of her fondness and affection for the Ethaefal might surprise herself if she ever took the time to think about it. Rufio feels the Ethaefal is destined for something special, quietly believing Taurina is a blessing to the drykas from Leth.

Met FALL 516 ↞

Knowing so little about Haena, or her children, Rufio regards her pavilion sister with welcome and curiosity. She admires her for her talent with herbs and the resilience of her children. Rufio wishes to know her better.

friends, foes, acquaintances
Met as children

Admired for her spirit, her community warmth and her enduring strength. Rufio remembers their childhood adventures with steadfast fondness and cherishes Naiya's presence in her life, however often or little they get to see each other. She feels at home with Naiya, and a sense of belonging without sacrificing any of her wild.

Met as children

If only Rufio knew of her friend's tricks and thieving—would it make her laugh or scowl?! Rufio has fond childhood memories of Merevaika, they were wild, misfits, and since growing into women, Rufio respects Merevaika's independent spirit.
Met WIN 516

Ambivalent, superstitious, fearful, curious—are the words that frame the mixed feelings Rufio has about this foreigner. She finds him intimidating, while at the same time he invokes in her a matriarchal instinct she didn't know she inherited from her Wildmane grandmother. Something about the man feels familiar to her, and this is something that draws her to him. If she could meet the foreigner again, perhaps Rufio would place the familiarity—he reminds her of Ixzo in his fierceness, his temperament, his myrian heritage. Last time they met, she left him with a wolf-fang memento.
Met FALL 516

When mysterious bones were scattered across the Sea of Grass, Rufio joined Khida and The Watch in a hunt for the source. After fighting—and surviving—Yukmen together Rufio harbors respect for the kelvic's ingenuity and ferocity as a warrior.

Met FALL 516

When the healer saved Rufio from a vicious, bloody death at the hands of their zith captors, Rufio was struck with admiration for Waisana's strength. Though she had spent many more moons a prisoner of the zith, Waisana protected Rufio, and the drykas feels indebted to her for that. Now, Rufio avoids thinking back to the season her kelvic bondmate was killed, but there is a part of her that wishes to reunite with Waisana, and know her better.
