Postby Ashka Windrunner on November 23rd, 2016, 2:06 am

Ashka Windrunner of the Amethyst Clan


Race: Drykas
Gender: Female
Age: 21 years old
Birthday: 86th day of Spring, year 496
Birthplace: Sea of Grass, Cyphrus
Religion: Preference for Caiyha, Zulrav and Semele.


Ashka is relatively tall, about 5'7 feet, with a lean, strong build. She carries her head high and her back straight, and has a welcoming and self-assured aura. Scars on her chestnut tan testify of the harsh life conditions in the Sea of Grass. She has several scratches over her arms and hands, an impressive bite mark on her right calf and several lines running on the left of her rib cage from a bad fall.
Her features are quite fair, not the most beautiful young lady one will ever lay eyes on, but she has a nicely shaped figure, smiling cheeks with a dimple on the left one, and those wide, expressive grey eyes who seems to be constantly questioning or challenging the world around her.
The wild mass of her auburn hair is usually kept tidy in different braids compositions, her preference going to whatever will free her vision and tame the loose locks. She likes to enlighten it with colorful ribbons in all shades of purple.
The young woman favors practical and confortable clothes over fancy ones. The jewllery she wears is quite modest and enlaced into her clothes and hair. Predominant colors are green, lavender, black, brown and grey.
Her windmarks decorate her upper back, shoulders and arms in an intricate maze of lines, dots and small geometrical symbols. Only black ink has been used.

Character Concept

Ash is a very curious young woman, eager to learn and explore the world around her. This can also play against her, as sometimes curiosity wins over safety. Like most Drykas, she is very attached to her family and understands the dangers and benefits of living in the wilderness. She challenges herself often to survive on her own for extended periods of time, to learn from Nature and, even though she won't admit it, show her brothers she is not a helpless little girl.

Character History

Ashka is born from her mother's second union, with a man who was not yet bonded with his Strider. He came originally from Alvadas, until a thirst for adventure drove him away from his family and to Cyphrus, where he met Ashka's mother Clan. He found himself very interested in the Drykas way of life and community and decided to stay with them. Ashka's mother was at the time recently widowed with two young children. Some time after they met, they developed a mutual attraction for each other, and just over a year later they were married and Ashka was born. As a child she used to listen to her father's stories about far away cities and exotic people, and those captivating tales soon forged her a curious, inquisitive mind, interested in all the wonders her eyes hadn't seen yet. He was from a merchant family who traded with many different populations from all over Mizahar and had a lot of anecdotes and stories to recall. He even taught her some bits of Nari language he learned from trading with the great Eagle-riders. The death of her father at age twelve was a devastating episode in the life of the young woman, and it took her a few of years to overcome her loss. The family believes this is one of the reason why she bonded quite late , at age eighteen, whereas all other members of the family did much earlier.
Growing up in the Drykas community she also developed a profound love and respect for the wild lands wherein they live. She has always been passionate about horses and very caring of her family herd. As soon as she was old and strong enough she started going out on her own for exploration rides, touring the area around the Pavilion, going further and further. She eventually learned the basics on how to survive in the wild, find her way around the country and became a better rider than her brothers.
Her blooming into adulthood and becoming a true Drykas happened quite late compared to others and she was therefore not considered ready for wedding until quite recently. Ashka is however not interested into founding a family yet, as she pursues her exploration of the world, hoping to one day travel to Alvadas and learn about the other half of her lineage.
