Na'oni of the Blackened Claws

Female
5'3"
125lbs
Myrian
16
49th day of Spring, AV 500


Appearance

At first glance, if you were to see her in her normal attire, Na'oni looks like any other Myrian. Her skin and eyes are light brown and in the din of the jungle, her hair appears to be black. If you catch a glimpse of her hair in the sun you will see that is not the case, her hair is actually a very, very dark red. She wears it long and has no facial tattoos or piercings. However the body modifications are blatant when she takes off her cloak or opens her mouth.

She has undergone an extreme form of body modification, scarring her entire body with burns like tiger stripes. Her teeth and nails, finger and toes, are sharpened to points and her clan tattoo is proudly emblazoned in between her small breasts. Her new Prowess mark is just below it, as much of her body is too sensitive to tattooing because her...modifications. But one of the most startling things, to most Myrians anyway, is her height. She falls shorter than most females, about the height of a male of her race.

While in Taloba or the jungles, she tends to go barefoot and bare bodied, the only thing covering her a swath of thin fabric. When in areas with weather unlike her home, she wears the same with a oversized,brightly colored feather cloak draped over her frame. This is not to hide her body modifications in any way, the cloak is usually open, but more to make herself bigger in the same way a cat puffs up its fur.

Personality

Na'oni is...different. To those who don't know her, she seems almost..feral. Those that do know her, know there's a lot going on in that savage's head. She doesn't speak much, using more of a language of feline sounds and quick, blunt sentences. She is slower at learning than most and she only has a good grasp on the Myrian language. In Common, her speech is crude and for that reason, she avoids talking to foreigners if she can. She barely has a grasp on the geography of the world and her knowledge of maths is horribly basic. She tends to barter rather than use money to avoid shopkeepers taking advantage of her lack of knowledge.

While on the outside she seems feral, and while that is mostly true, she has quite a mind for the concepts she does grasp. She is very observant, excellent at taking in the surrounding and keeping an eye on the activity around her. She can read body language well and her keen mind for fighting makes her an excellent Myrian. While she does prefer to be in her morphed form, a tiger, she usually begrudgingly, takes her human form around people.

Na'oni is very dedicated to both Myri and Caiyha and to a lesser degree, Makutsi and Dira, but the God that holds the most reverence to her is Navre. After a kill, be it animal or human, she eats the heart and spills its blood on the ground, not only to give back to Caiyha but to give to Myri as well. She refuses to kill any type of feline and does her best to befriend any she meets, even if it seems unfriendly.

History


This misunderstood child was born to Thia of the Blackened Claws and Fek of the Cutthroat Shadows, a pair of Myrians with passion like fire. Watching the two fight side by side was like a dance, they were like extensions of each other working in perfect sync. It was probably the closest a man will ever get to being equal to a female. Fek a male of the Cutthroat Shadows but he was a great warrior and firedancer and his talents won Thia's heart. While Thia knew how to fight, as all Myrians do, what she did best, minus her morphing, was weaving.

The two wanted children of their own to pass on their talents to but a childhood accident had rendered Thia unable to have children. They taught their skills to other children of the clan but Thia was still not satisfied and prayed and made sacrifices to the gods as much as she possibly could. Most of her prayers went to Myri and Kihala but she even sent prayers to Kelwyn in her desperation. But her prayers seemed to go unanswered.

Until one day, in the middle of the festivities in the celebration of Navre, she gave birth to a child. While she was overjoyed, they were all concerned because she was so small. Despite her size though, she was as healthy, physically, as any Myrian child. They were devastated to discover later her mental capacity was diminished but loved her just the same.

While she was not the best at things like math or geography, she excelled in matters that concerned the Myrians most: hunting, fighting, tracking, ect. She also has a limited knowledge of firedancing and weaving thanks to her parents. Despite her abnormality, she had a very normal life. She started training in Morphing with her mother at age 10 and having that escape caused the reclusive girl to pull even further back in her shell.

Na'oni likely would have stayed in Taloba, or at least Falyndar, if it hadn't been for that terrible storm. It came in the season of her birth, when she was about to turn 13. Fek was struck blind and Thia was trampled by a Tskanna, while she herself was spared. In the aftermath of the storm, Fek couldn't find her, let alone keep her in Taloba. With his lost sight, and her ability to squirm out of any situation, she quickly escaped.

She made a pilgrimage to the Tear of the Clouds soon after the storm and it was after this that she started her body modification. After her trip, she started planning to leave Falyndar after her Blooding Ceremony. It was both in a desire to learn more about the djed storm and, now that she knows what caused it (very slightly, just knows it was caused by the savage's gods), to learn about different magics.

While the jungle was dangerous, she preferred the natural chaos of the forest to the confusion of Taloba. She continued to "live" in the city but actually slept and spent most of her time in a cave nearly hidden by the overgrown vegetation of the forest. The cave floods in Summer and she would spend Summers in Taloba. She left as planned a week after her Blooding ceremony and reached Lhavit in a season and a half.
