At a...
Image
...glance


Workplace: An unnamed stall in the Bizarre Bazaar, selling wooden and bone knick-knacks, and occasionally jewellery.
Disposition: Ssanya is a friendly individual, who loves a good conversation and likes to meet new people. Her resting face is that of indifference. Her smile, though somewhat fleeting, is genuine and quirky.
Public likes: Wine, discussing death, warm places
Public dislikes: Cold places, Kelvics, male flirts
Languages: Snake-tongue | Fluent
Common | Conversational

Music :

-Representing Ssanya's physical attractions and most primal and essentially need-driven emotions. Her desire for women, her love of wine, of dark evenings filled with the incense of blooming desert flowers, and heady spices of passion and power. Of elegant conversation and decadence, which she enjoys as much as the next person. Representing her curiosity with the feeling of being out of control. Perhaps representing the possibility for Ssanya's darker side, as yet unexplored.-



-Ssanya's desert past speaks through this music, her deep-seated and unwavering connection to the rolling sands and the fierce heat of her homeland. The feelings of sorrow she cannot help but associate with the desert, feelings of pain and sadness as she thinks of her mother. But also of happiness and joy, and of being completely immersed in the empty beauty of endless sands. This represents her homesickness and her deep nostalgia for that connection to the land of her birth.



Faceclaim: Juana Burga
Based on a sidewinder rattlesnake.

Appearance and Concept

Postby Allassanachassanya on August 20th, 2016, 5:26 pm

Human appearance:
Image
As a human, Ssanya stands at a height of 4 ft 5 in. She has warm, light brown skin and long dark hair that she usually leaves lying long and wild around her shoulders and down her back. Her face is somewhat average, with an often indifferent expression on her features. She has almond-shaped brown eyes expressing emotions ranging from amused to furious. She is relatively slim. Most of the time, she is dressed in lightweight, neutral colours, although during Autumn and Winter she always wears a scarf around her neck. In addition, her mother's bone talisman always hangs from a cord around her neck, hidden by clothes or her scarf.

Dhani appearance:

As a dhani she is small for her species, at only 10 ft. She is larger than the males in her family, but only by a little. She is patterned all over with light browns and beiges, with a cream underbelly. Over her eyes are peculiar eye ridges that give her either an astonished look, or a darkened look, depending on the lighting levels. As she is a rattler, she has a rattle on the tip of her tail, which is dark, almost black. In this form, she is roughly 1.5x stronger than a regular, untrained human, and is very quick and agile with her movements.

Snake appearance:

As a snake, Ssanya is the smallest, only 6ft long. She is patterned in the same way as her dhani form, brown and cream in a speckled pattern over her scales. Her eye ridges are also quite prominent. In this form, she moves in a peculiar fashion, sideways rather than forwards, more at home in the warm sands of her home than the colder climates in the north.

Behaviour and diet:

During Autumn and Winter, Ssanya feels the cold keenly, and will need to sleep or be inactive at night to conserve energy and heat, whilst moving and being active during the day. In hotter climates, she more often chooses to sleep during the day and only come out at night. Ever since moving away from Ekytol, Ssanya doesn't really need to follow these patterns, but still does so out of habit.

As a dhani and snake, Ssanya's diet mostly consists of rodents, and sometimes larger animals such as rabbits, but rarely anything bigger due to her size.

Click me :
I have slightly adjusted the average rattler dhani heights/lengths to reflect her sidewinder species differences, mostly to make her smaller than an average rattler dhani. Obviously, this means that she is slightly bigger than listed for a real-life sidewinder. Her size differences are due to the fact that her family has lived in the Ekytol nest for many generations, and their size difference (compared to other rattlers) allows them to fit in better amongst the predominantly viper Dhani in the Ekytol nest.


A small note on venom:

Ssanya has small venom glands which produce venom less strong than other rattler species. However, bites from Ssanya can cause: swelling, pain, dizziness, chills, shock, and can cause you to bleed without clotting. She could probably kill a human through venom alone, unless the affected were treated. Luckily for you, Ssanya doesn't bite- much!

*Edited as of: 17/11/2016, to show more accurate rattler Dhani sizes.

Character Concept


The cycle of death...

Chassanya is a dhani driven by a curiosity gained when she was a youngling. Curiosity surrounding death. From a young age, Ssanya was very aware of the presence of death: she came for her two aunts as they were out hunting, she took a brother away before he'd even lived, and every meal was a small death on the part of the food she ate. It fascinated her that as soon as someone or something died, it's life was gone. A simple thought, really, but one that captivated the young snake.

Living through remains...

In with this was malediction- the magic she learnt from her mother. Although Chassanya wasn't terribly important to the family, being a middle child who showed little interest in leadership, her relationship with her mother was strong. Through her, she learnt malediction- her mother's first love. Through the magic, a death brings meaning to the world, even after they are gone. In a sense, they are living through their remains, a thought that Ssanya finds exciting and electrifying. After her mother's death especially, the girl turned to malediction to remember her mother and understand death. Malediction is the lens through which Ssanya views the world.

The drive to survive...

It was after her mother's death that Chassanya realised her place in the nest was not one of great comfort. Not that she wasn't accepted, that wasn't the case. It was her feeling of loneliness, of wanting to know more about her mother's magic, to discover what she could of the world, just as her mother had done before her. Ssanya loves to discover and learn, yet won't place herself in dangerous positions just for the sake of it. She's a born and bred survivor. She has to be in this harsh world.

Heirloom, Ledger and Equipment

Postby Allassanachassanya on August 20th, 2016, 5:27 pm

.
.
Heirloom:
    Chassanya's heirloom is a deeply personal one- her mother's left hand index finger knuckle, carefully connected to a loop of leather cord tied around her neck at all times. Although it is not maledicted, the bone means a great deal to Chassanya. From it, she draws inspiration. After all, the dhani it belonged to was her greatest idol, her mentor, her teacher, and most of all her beloved mother. The bone itself is aged and stained with time, and the cord it is tied to is darkened with age and frayed on one end.

Malediction equipment:
  • Detail paintbrush
    Ssanya uses this to paint symbols onto bones, it is small and thin with stiff bristles
  • Black paint pigment and binder
    Only combined together when she needs it, she keeps the paint in her chest...
  • Small chest with average lock and key
    This chest is small enough for her to carry, and contains all of her malediction equipment. She bought it in Riverfall, but had the lock and key installed in Kenash, after the incident that forced her to leave Riverfall
  • Engraver's toolkit
    Although she hasn't used this often, this is primarily because she hasn't had much practice with engraving. She plans one day to etch her sigils instead of paint
  • Parchment scroll
    A small roll of parchment, where Ssanya designs and sketches new sigils for malediction
  • Leather scroll case
    A leather case, fastened with a wrap, that protects the parchment from breakages
  • Quill and Ink

Preparation equipment:
  • Leather-handled hunting knife
    Having lost a slew of her belongings in Kenash, Ssanya has bought replacements in Alvadas. This hunting knife is exceptionally sharp and is used for skinning malediction targets
  • 2x Clay basins
    These basins are used in the slaughtering process
  • 1 sq yd cloth, torn into four pieces
    Used to wrap dead creatures for transportation, and for general cleaning purposes. (Will need to be replaced in Spring 516).
  • Pillow case, useful for transporting body parts at a pinch *
  • Small basket, again for carrying dead things

The Raw Goods:
  • Catherine's skull (unmaledicted) *
  • Catherine's rib (unmaledicted) *
  • Washed bones of a rabbit (minus one paw) {*}
  • Pelt of a rabbit (minus one paw) {*}

  • Rune stones, after meeting a young Eypharian, Ssanya bought a set of rune stones to see if she could understand the craft of reading a fortune
  • Small iron mirror, so that Ssanya can do her hair
  • Maledicted rabbit foot fetish, unknown properties. {*}

One dagger is wound with blood-red leather, with a pommel tip of a small, ruby-like stone encased in iron. The other is a bone-handled dagger, with a black semi-precious stone encased in iron. The two come with leather scabbards which can attach to a belt.

History and Thread List

Postby Allassanachassanya on August 20th, 2016, 9:39 pm

413 - 438 AV :
3rd Fall 413 BORN - 3rd Fall 438 AV Youngling (25 yrs old) learns dhani form

Ssanya was born in the hot desert sands of Ekytol, with two sisters and a brother. Although she never knew much about it, she would have had two other sisters, but they were stillborn, much to the family's grief. Even so, Ssanya had a good childhood. She and her closest siblings joined the already large group of brothers and sisters in her mother's nest, and lived together not altogether peacefully, but happily nonetheless. On 90th Spring, 419 AV, Ssanya's mother Tchachallasana gave birth to another clutch. Whilst her older siblings soon learnt how to shift into their dhani forms, Ssanya waited patiently along with her clutch and her younger siblings until the day she too could form into her dhani shape...


438 - 463 - 511 AV :
5th Fall 438 AV
    Shortly after her 25th birthday, Ssanya finally learnt her dhani form. For the coming years, she started learning more, too - lessons with her mother and father Ssonoren in the nest. She learnt about their goddesses, about Siku and Caiyha. She learnt how to hunt, how to survive in the fierce desert sands. Yet most of all, she started learning what would become the most important thing in her life: malediction. Those lessons came from her mother, when she could spare the time to teach one of her daughters. Yet, Tchachallassana found Chassanya a receptive and eager learner, and soon the two were deep in lessons.

3rd Fall 463 AV Young adult (50 yrs old) - Spring 40th 508 AV
    As Ssanya grew into a young adult, her love and fascination with death and malediction only increased. As her mother grew older, she was spending more and more time with her other siblings, and malediction lessons decreased. Yet, the snake practised wherever she could, with the bones of animals killed for food, with scorched skeletons found in the desert. However, it soon became apparent that there was something wrong with her mentor and mother. Her scales started to become brittle, her movements slow and painful. On the 40th Spring, 508 AV, Tchachallassana transformed into her human form for the last time.

Fall 1st 511 AV - Mother dies
    For three years, Tchallassana lived a good life. Yet living became more and more difficult, until the turn of the season from Summer to Fall, 511 AV. That was the day Ssanya lost her mother to death. The whole family mourned, for she had been a good woman, a proud and clever leader of their nest. But life had to go on. Ssanya mourned in her own way, quiet, lonely, deep and long.


511 - 513 AV :
Fall 511 - Fall 513 AV
    Life went on. The only thing that her mother left her in death was the left knuckle bone of her mother's index finger, yet to her it was a priceless treasure. By this time, Ssanya had developed her own connection to bones, and the life they held even after death. Her mother's bone was her anchor, her guide, her consolation. In the years ahead, Ssanya continued her education, and spent a lot of time in Ahnatep, learning of the outside world. Her mother's death had left the nest feeling empty, somehow. And besides, she wanted to learn more about her mother's magic. She began making preparations to leave. Her family stopped her though, her father telling her to wait, just a little.

Fall 11th 513 - learns human form
    It was a wise decision. A few days after her 100th birthday, Ssanya learnt her human form. From then on out she began her preparations to leave the nest...

Winter 3rd 513 - leave Ekytol nest
Winter 13th 513 - found by Drykans
Spring 36th 514 - kicked out of Endrykas (approved by Prophet)
Spring 58th 514 - arrive Riverfall
Autumn 73rd 514 - unwelcome, leave Riverfall
Winter 32nd 514 - arrive Kenash, with trade cart
69th Summer 516 - itchy feet, leave Kenash by boat
4th Fall 516 - arrive Alvadas


Pre-creation history

Thread list and post-creation history


History overview:

Chassanya arrives at Alvadas on the 4th Fall 516 AV, weary after her journey over the sea, and eager to eat and sleep. Alvadas is a strange place, that much is certain. She finds a lodging at the Wolf's Cave and acquires a small job working as an amateur jewellery carver for a crone at the Bizarre Bazaar. It takes her a while to acclimatise to the city, but she finally feels at home upon finding a like-minded individual during an exploration gone wrong.

Gradually becoming more and more restless in her job, Ssanya takes to practising her magic more and more, especially now she has some human bones to work with. Another meeting with Madeira firmly solidifies her in the city, and spins her interest towards the practice of spiritism. The strange climate of murder and Vantha hunting fills Ssanya with a strange, bloodthirsty vibe which is brought to a head upon meeting a dhani-hunter and an unexpected ally.

With the turn of the year into Spring 517, yet more adventure awaits!

Chassanya is fond of her family, most especially of her brother and two sisters in the Ssa clutch. Her father was a good man who she was very proud of, and everyone was respectful of Tchashallassana. She does miss her family sometimes when she is away, and one day wishes to return.

Tshashallasana
On Malediction
    This magic practice was a hobby and an obsession for the Dhani mother. In her younger years, she was introduced to the magic by an acquaintance she met through travel. Gradually as she progressed through life and settled down to breed her nest, she started to hone her skills. The magic was a way to defend her family by making totems and talismans from bones. Sometimes they worked, sometimes they didn't. Because she feared the stronger effects of the magic, she refused to use more volatile materials and so in effect the magic simply became a hobby as opposed to the obsession she had fostered in her youth. She taught Ssanya the magic when the young snakeling showed an interest, and although she didn't have the time to teach as in depth as she would have liked, she grew fond of her middle daughter. Her style was rich and elaborate, mainly hinging on designs of the landscape around her, such as undulating sands that she wove into representations of the animals that lived in such an environment.

Her equal interest in death and what lies beyond gives the two a close bond, and their shared exploits in a somewhat warily regarded magic give Ssanya a feeling of companionship. She sees the woman as a treasured friend, respected teacher and valued pupil, and trusts her in most matters.

Siku

Starting Development Threads
Image Siku is the goddess who Ssanya treats as the overall matriarch of her family and of the nest she was born in. To her, she's more of a great leader than a goddess, one to be admired, honoured and respected. When she is feeling particularly Dhani-like, she will often send prayers to Siku, and has given her blood in the past. TBD TBD


Caiyha

Starting Development Threads
Image Caiyha is another dear goddess to Ssanya, admired, loved, and possibly the goddess to whom Ssanya prays most often. She sees her in all things, but most especially whilst hunting. Sometimes she wonders what she thinks of malediction, but as the magic is her world, she doesn't let that thought bother her too much. TBD TBD


Dira

Starting Development Threads
Image After her two childhood gods comes Dira, goddess of death. She doesn't know much about this goddess, but knows of her name and what she resides over. As such, she feels that it is only wise and respectful to offer praise and thanks for her continued existence and for whenever she takes a life, through the hunt or otherwise. Perhaps Dira wouldn't approve of Ssanya's malediction, or the way she does things. But Ssanya doesn't know this, so what does it matter? TBD TBD


Ionu

Starting Development Threads
IMG In development. TBD TBD


The only other deity that she worships infrequently is Deddra, deity of wine. As this is all she knows about that god, she merely thanks them for her beloved drink.

However, this doesn't mean that Ssanya doesn't think about or send prayers to other gods and goddesses. She is always interested to learn of other deities, and is open to worshipping others. She is not an overly religious woman, but the gods reside over her as they do everyone else. It would be unwise to not offer at least some of them praise and thanks.
