Race: Mixed Blood (Vantha/Symenestra).
Gender: Male.
Age: 21.
Birthday: 30th of Winter, 495 AV.
Birthplace: Kalinor.

Standing just a hair's width more than 5'4", the young man's death-like pallor is the first thing that is evident. He has a very slender - almost malnourished - appearance that is somewhat typical for his Symenestra heritage with the relative lack of height being more attributable to his Vantha lineage. In spite of this thinness, he possesses a dancerly physique which makes itself apparent in both his movements and musculature. His elongated arms and hands taper gracefully into the iconic black nails.

His pale skin is juxtaposed by the black straight hair that is worn in an often short to mid length style that is flattering to his facial shape. He has delicate facial features; recognizable through high cheekbones, full and rounded lips, a slightly downturned nose that may be just a bit too long for his face, and protruding and unevenly sized ears. His eyes are wide set, and slightly upturned at the outer corner. They are the amethyst colouration sometimes associated with that of the Datura web. He has grey veins that web outwards softly from his eyes to the sides of his face and down his neck. There is often a luminous quality to his skin that hints at a strict skincare regimen. Recent exposure to the sun has left him with a dusting of faint freckles across his cheeks and nose.

Given his current living conditions he often avoids smiling and wears clothing that partially obscures his mouth as to avoid unsettling people with his fangs, or being easily identified as Symenestra. Though he also contradictorily dresses in the draped and flowing garbs most associated with his mother's people.

Character Concept

Born into a life of social derision, Dra-Vaerin does his best to make himself useful and valued by his people. This is extended to others by virtue of wanting to create a positive impression of his people. He does this out of a deep and abiding sense of duty and love for his mother and culture, as much as out of a fear of potentially being deemed a burden and the implications this could have. He most desires to feel acceptance and love from both himself and others. He is proud of his culture and wishes to share it, and learn from others.

He constantly pushes himself to be the best, kindest, and most useful person he can be as a result of this. There is an authenticity to these traits that can be seen as endearing. However there is a level of desperation for praise and acknowledgement that can be read into from this. As such there is a level of anxiety within himself that threatens to consume him should the possibility of failure seem likely. He also possesses a quiet, but very deep religious reverence for the god Viratas and the Viratassa. As such there is an almost constant earnest air about him. One which does mean that he has difficulty with being candid with his less positive emotions or when he feels that he needs help. He does not yet realise that these qualities contribute in part to some of his anxieties.

He is by no means a violent person by nature and takes a moral objection to unnecessary violence. There is a level of self preservation that factors into this pacifism, as he knows he is no skilled warrior. Thus, he is prone to treating everyone in a polite but shy manner. This establishes itself in a sometimes deferential, but constantly humble sense of decorum and etiquette. However towards other Symenestra, he find himself acting in a subservient manner; whilst internally screaming for the opportunity to prove himself an equal to his kin. As such, the casual observer would most likely comment that he seems to be a nice person; if not a little high strung and reticent.

Underpinning all of this is a deep seated rage at the treatment he received in his past. This also extends to an uncertainty bordering on self-loathing in regards to who he is as an individual. The Dra- that prefixes his name is a constant reminder of this, and often he will ask those unfamiliar with his mothertongue's honorifics to just call him Vaerin, or Rin. Despite him repressing these feelings, Dra-Vaerin recognizes this anger and confusion is eating away at him.

Character History

He was conceived as the result of a love affair between a Vantha carver and merchant and his mother, Kalisara Datura (at the time working with the Library in the Cribellum), during his biological father's stay in Kalinor in which he contributed to the gleaning and trade through his knowledge of craft. His departure from the underground city left a hole inside of Kalisara that never really healed over, even despite her quickly marrying another afterwards. Dra-Vaerin's birth was something of a closely held secret of Kalisara's, whose primary motivation for marriage was her fear that she may have fallen pregnant to the Vantha man that had stolen her heart, and the subsequent scandal which it would have created within the Datura web. In spite of this, she loved her son fiercely.

However, his lineage quickly made itself known. The derision and coldness he received from his people confused him through most of his childhood. This transformed into a quiet rage in his adolescence. Which led to him to push himself to make up for the skills that his mixed blood left him lacking. In conjunction to doing everything he could to be as close to a perfect and polite example in an effort to make others appreciate him. He specifically targeted his interests to aerial dance. To him it represented the ability to assimilate and share in what it meant to be Symenestra. Through his own determination he managed to successfully cultivate a level of talent in the artform that has earned him begrudging praise from other full-blooded Symenestra, and led to him pursuing it as a career.

The 26th of Summer, 513 AV was the day that his mother told him all she could about his biological father, the love of her life; and the world outside of Kalinor as it had been described it to her. It was from this that he gained insight into what he could do, as well as the other side of his heritage. He realized that he had a distinct advantage over other Syemenestra, the human blood he had reviled for so long. He had a link to the world outside of Kalinor. He felt that he could better forge a relationship with the outside world through the blood that married him to both it and Kalinor. In that moment it felt to Dra-Vaerin like Viratas himself had blessed him with this life mission. It also sewed the seeds of curiosity about his father. From this moment on he devoted any spare time he had to finding out as much about the outside world as the limited information he could procure from Kalinor's libraries as possible. He was determined to find a way to the entrance and captivate the hearts and minds of the outside world and become a hero to his people somehow.

It was not until the Winter of 515 AV that he finally felt ready, and ventured off after the Do-Vedenza Kina. Syliras seemed to be the best choice given the large populace. He was certain if he were to live up to this destiny he wanted to make a reality there was no better place to start. He eventually arrived in with two goals in mind: find a way to better the reputation of his people, and hopefully find his father if he still yet lived. Yet the young man still found himself an outsider.

Post-Creation History

However, the youth was not anywhere near as successful as he was initially hoping to be. The events of Winter 516 AV meant that the Vani people and all those that were descended from them or claimed allegiance to Morwen were prosecuted. This, combined with the level of disdain that the Symenestra had amongst the populace of Mizahar left Dra-Vaerin fearful for his life. Thankfully, he avoided being prosecuted by way of keeping a low profile. No closer to making any progress on his mission, he has felt his resolve shaken in a way that he never imagined it would be.
