Fiametta Grassrunner, Drykas Girl

Postby Fiametta on July 20th, 2017, 7:28 pm

Fiametta Grassrunner


Appearance

Race: Human, Drykas
Gender: Female
Birthday: 27, Fall, 497AV
Birthplace: Endrykas

Appearance:
Fiametta is a petite girl, standing at 5'6" with a thin and athletic frame. She has an unusually beautiful face, considering she has very strong features. Her hair color is a lovely red and falls in waves to her hips with four beaded braids always in her hair. Her eyes tend to change between a deep blue and a blue that almost glows. Though she takes after her father in personality, her appearance is almost completely identical to her mother. Her father's features are scattered sparsely, like her eye shape and small birthmark on her left shoulder.

The girl has an elegant set of windmarks on the outsides of her legs. They were acquired when she was bonded with Latigo, her strider, but she knew they were always part of her.

Character Concept

Growing up with an older brother, Fiametta learned quickly how to defend herself against abuse. She is a level-headed, quiet girl who prefers to be on her own. Quiet, yet passionate, Fiametta will happily speak her mind on a topic that catches her interest. Her voice catches the attention of anyone who hears her, for she is delicate and commanding at the same time. Her mother died in childbirth, leaving the only maternal influence to be her father's other three wives. She had one full-blood brother and seven half-blood siblings. Being one of the youngest, she was more introverted than most of them. She holds her passion deep within herself, hiding it from her large family.

The only thing that keeps her connected to her mother is her heavenly singing voice. Fiametta sings to herself and for her father, which brings back the love for her deceased mother that her father still holds. She has a memory like an iron box, which traps everything she experiences. This makes it difficult for her to let little arguments go, but she can suppress her anger with ease. She's proficient in Common and Pavi tongue, while attempting to learn Tukant. She has a love for language and a desire to learn as much as she can.

She follows three deities, preferring to devote herself instead of spreading her attention amongst many. Fiametta is most faithful to Zulrav and Semele, with Caiyha coming at a close third.

Character History

Fiametta has lived an unfortunate life. She was born to her father, of the Diamond clan, and her mother, of the Amethyst clan, who was her father's third wife. Her father was a great hunter, her mother was a talented singer and gardener, and her brother was skilled in battle. When she was being born, her mother died. Her father, despite his heartache, cut open his dead wife's stomach and took the unbreathing infant into his arms. He was told that she was dead, yet be it by the gods' wishes or the power of a father's will, she started crying.

She was practically raised on the back of a horse, and she wore a purple Saha around her waist to acknowledge her mother's connection to the Amethyst clan, despite her growing up in the Diamond clan.

Her father raised her and the other kids with all of the stories, skills, and knowledge that he could pass on to them. Fiametta became a skilled archer and huntress, and befriended a large hunting dog that she named Falyn.

When she was fourteen years old, her father was killed on a hunting trip. His body was never recovered.

After three years, her older brother fell ill with a mystery ailment. The healers had no guess as to what it was, and he died within three days. Fiametta wore three braids in her hair after that.

She never really liked her father's other wives, so she went off on her own with only Falyn and her horse to keep her company. Fiametta accidentally ran into a roaming group of immoral and unfriendly bandits. They stole what little money she had and killed her horse for food. Fiametta lived for a year off of her own skill and what little Falyn would bring to her. She wore four braids in her hair for the loss of her family and horse.

From then on, she made sure to keep close to Endrykas, as she realized just how harsh and unforgiving the Grasslands could be. Though traveling with Endrykas, Fiametta enjoyed her freedom and often went on small adventures, always sure to be back before it was dark.

One night, she sat with Falyn around a fire and held her bow loosely as she heard the hoof beats of a single horse approaching. The pale golden glow around the horse identified it without doubt as a Cyphrus strider. The strider stopped near her, and Fiametta realized that he was riderless. The beautiful claybank strider was massive with a red and white mane and tail. He walked slowly to her.

She gained her windmarks on her legs and named the young strider, Latigo. The bonding ritual was abnormally small, due to her lack of family. She rode Latigo bareback with Falyn walking along them.

Secret :
Note on Yvas:
The Drykas use what is called a Yvas on their horses rather than bridles and saddles. A yvas is what equates to a girth with an attached breast collar combination hung with hooks and topped with a small flat hand grip that lays along a horse's shoulders. The Yvas is often placed over a colorful pad that acts to protect the horse from the rider. The grip fits over a strider's withers which holds the yvas in place. It almost looks like the type of thing vaulters used on their draft horses, though it is more functional than a vaulter's pad. The horses can free themselves from them if they got separated from their riders, and do not have tack to entrap or tangle them when they are running loose. The yvas has ring tethers on it for handling a set of wither bags and a waterskin, and is often decorated in knot-work beading that identified the horse and rider as part of a specific pavilion.

Drykas ride without any headgear or bridles on their horses at all. They do not use any halters either.


Heirloom: A simple short bow that once belonged to her father. He gave it to her brother, who then gave it to her when he died.
