Ines of the Ivory Tusk

Race: Kelvic, Common Vampire Bat
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years old
Birthday: Spring 14th, 514 AV
Birthplace: Taloba
Location: Syka

Appearance

Standing at 5' nothing, Ines has tanned skin covered with a smattering of moles stretched over her small frame. Her eyes are almond shaped, framed by thick eyebrows and bangs, and her dark brown hair is chopped at her shoulders, the entire look giving one an impression that she cut it herself. Her Kelvic heritage is subtle, showing itself only in her increased hearing, big ears, and sharp canines.

She typically wears clothing of undyed fibers, but it is not uncommon to see her traversing naked or nearly so - depending on whether she has required the use of her Kelvic form to traverse the Maw.

Personality

The type to put all of her eggs in one basket, Ines takes a goal and pursues it with a fury. She often comes off as too intense to be around Raised in the Myrian fashion, she has a strong sense of family and will often come to extensive assistance of those she deems close. She takes much interest in the world around her, both the activities of the sentient creatures and the plants and animals, and is strongly devoted to the protection of the land.

History

Born in Taloba, Ines has spent her short life quickly growing up in a Myrian fashion before being marked by Caiyha, then devoting her time to the protection and balance of the Maw.

Caiyha's Mark :

Ines only truly came to revere Caiyha when she was a few months old. Still a child, perhaps of the Myrian equivalent of 8, she rarely strayed from home. Tonight, however, she snuck out, curious to see Taloba in Leth's light. She did not go far before encountering the massive Tskanna, their six ivory tusks striking in the moonlight. She watched them for a bit, sitting in the dirt, when she saw dark shapes flit through the night.

She recognized them immediately. Vampire bats. They were like her - even as a child she noticed their form. She watched in both confusion and, perhaps, some semblance of understanding as they landed on the Tskanna. The elephants did not wake up, even as she watched them lap up their blood and fly away. The kelvic fell asleep that night in the dirt.



A few months later, Ines, the equivalent of 15, was playing hide and seek. After a long day of chores, she and some Myrian children decided to relax, playing inside Taloba until one of the children convinced the rest to sneak out into the jungle to play, as long as they didn't stray too far from the city. They were warned to always keep it in sight - a difficult task in the thick jungles of Falyndar. The kelvic, in her infinite wisdom, strayed much too far. It was only when she realized that she could no longer hear the voices of the other children, even the one yelling out his numbers as they hid, that she realized she had traversed too far.

She heard the snarl first. She always heard everything first, and beyond that, everything in general. She instinctively hid, sneaking between the buttress roots of a massive tree. There, up in the tree, the very tree she had been hiding in, was a jaguar. Ines immediately knew she was not his prey - not today. Its line of sight lead directly to a tapir, foraging in the jungle. She observed the jaguar with careful eyes, and felt as if she had watched a story being told.

She did not watch the tapir's death with horror - more a morbid curiosity. It was not the jaguar's fault for being hungry that the tapir had to die. It was simply the way of things.

Looking around her, she marveled at the explosion of life. Each and every creature affected the other, from the mosquito to the Tskanna - and she desired to protect it.



Ines somehow got it in her mind to attend a pilgrimage to the Grave of Behemoths around the age of two. Her dreams had contained repetitions of an incident that occurred when she was just a child - the jaguar and the tapir. The circle of life, the constant cycle of predator versus prey, had become infinitely interesting to the Kelvic - and the flora that provided such abundance to the city of Taloba had provided much captivating information for the girl.

It only took a few days for the Kelvic. She flew through the night in her bat form, feeding on sleeping animals and leaving them alive, barely harmed from her small intake of their blood. She awoke every evening at sunset, sleeping during the day in tree hollows or shallow caves, her singular goal in mind: the pilgrimage. She knew the way, vaguely, from asking the matriarch of her clan. They themselves made trips to the Grave of Behemoths every few years, though the last trip had been when she was much too young. The Ivory Tusk clan revered the Tskanna that they so took care of.

The first glimpse of the field was breathtaking. The Kelvic landed on the edge of the field, eyes wide and reverant. To think - every Tskanna made this journey to their death. To think that every Tskanna knew when it was their time, and ended the cycle. The bat kneeled there, naked in the grass, as the morning sun came over the horizon and bathed the scene in her golden light.

Ines felt eyes on her - she turned, facing a beautiful woman clothed in green. They studied each other for ticks, chimes, and then the woman spoke.

"You came here to pay respects. All alone?" There was a question in her voice, unasked. How?

"I...can fly. I know the land. I have studied the wilds." The Kelvic felt mixed feelings - both pride, and doubt. Should she have been able to make it on her own?

"What is your name, kelvic?" This question startled the bat, but further thinking revealed the obvious. There was little else a naked girl who claimed she could fly would be, other than crazy.

"I am Ines, of the Ivory Tusk." She said her name with pride. It was the Ivory Tusks that were the main caretakers of the Tskanna, and here was their burial ground.

"Do you know who I am, Ines?" In fact, the Kelvic had no idea until she asked the question - and the answer was immediately apparent.

"Caiyha...why do you visit me?" The Kelvic questioned, her face turned from one of pride to awe.

"You see the necessity of each and every creature where others do not - and I can feel your desire to keep it that way." She walked towards the bat, placing a hand on her shoulder. "Recieve my gift, Ines, and protect these lands."


The Kelvic later returned to Taloba, only to pack her few things and begin the trek back to the Maw. It was there she was marked - and there she would protect.
