✨Appearance✨


Race: Human, Svefra
Gender: Female
Age: 25
Birthday: 32, Spring, 493AV
Birthplace: The Suvan Sea

Appearance: Kelani resembles that of typical Svefran features. First and foremost is her first gift of Laviku - eyes that swirl with the blue and green colors of the Suvan Sea. Her gaze is serious and usually cast down upon a piece of her work she is determined to identify. She has wavy brown hair that has been made to feel slightly coarse from years spent in the salt water. It rests below her shoulders and is either left loose or braided into a plait.

Her tan and freckled skin is spread over a body that has been finely tuned over the years from living a tough Svefran life. Her strong physique can manage some heavy things without too much resistance and she can do things such maneuver her casinor on shore with ease. Her second gift from Laviku, her gnosis mark, crests on her shoulder like a wave plucked straight from the ocean. The unpredictable mark flows around her arms, shoulders and upper back, changing its location from hour to hour.

She doesn't wear much in terms of clothing as she is in and out of the ocean so often it would be pointless to fully dress. Generally she can be found in a lightweight ensemble of shirts, sandals and pants if she must interact with others. If she's alone, chances are she is nude or covered in a thin scarf doubled as a dress. A makeshift string of seaglass keeps it secured on her body so she may move as she wishes. She also keeps the seaglass woven throughout her apparel and hair.



✨Character Concept✨

At a young age, a great sense of curiosity was instilled in Kelani. This allows for her to read between the lines and see things previously hidden beneath the surface. She believes that life has a deeper meaning and views it as a puzzle where everything and everyone is connected. Every move and every idea is part of something bigger. Her mark and devotion of Laviku has helped create this trait. She can feel things that other creatures cannot and it has given her a different perspective of how the world works. She has strong instincts although she struggles between wanting to use sensible rationale and her intuition. She tends to overthink even the simplest of things which can make it hard for her to focus and follow through with tasks. Svefran nature tells her to think of survival at the forefront of her actions, but her adventurous spirit regularly contradicts that.

The woman is independent, but she still enjoys being around others and is not afraid to ask for help. One of the things she values most is freedom in her personal life as she is a terribly hard woman to tie down. She quickly looses interest in routine but thrives on ability to challenge the status quo and explore alternatives. She speaks for what she believes to be right even if it may not be the popular view. After encounters with other races, she quickly realized the Svefra were not well regarded in society so she has little issue to speaking her mind to them. She can be quite outspoken if someone expresses ill will toward her kind. She is a proud Svefra and perhaps takes things a little too personally.


✨Character History✨


Kelani is the product of Daedra Silvertide's frivolous endeavors with a neighboring Svefra pod. Shortly after joining in on a fortnight long festival between the two pods, Daedra found herself with child but was not entirely certain who the father might be. She decided to raise the child without notification and kept Kelani within her own pod. Daedra was a fiercely wild and passionate woman that reared her daughter the same way. The Silvertides were historically revered ship builders, but she experimented with her own interests as an explorer and archeologist. She was known to strap her babies to her back and adventure with a cutlass in one hand and a machete in the other. She had little fear and too much curiosity for her own good.

As Kelani grew older she took an affinity toward her mother’s research and went with her willingly. They visited different cities to collect information for what Daedra happened to be preoccupied with, but never stayed long on land due to their Svefran nature. The pair were sometimes recognized around the Falyndar and Cyprus regions for causing disturbances and asking questions the locals preferred not to answer. One of the first things Kelani was taught from this was to be analytical of her surroundings and to question circumstances. She gained most of her knowledge through hands-on learning and absorbing everything her mother said like a sea sponge.

Daedra was made Lia by age default when the former was slain defending their pod from a jungle cat attack on land. The tragedy was a sad though expected part of their short Svefran lifestyle. She was apprehensive, to say the least, on behalf of the change that was not expected. After all, she was only the third oldest female in the pod but unfortunately both of the older women had been killed in the attack. She took the responsibility knowing that she had a duty to her people, but frankly, knew she did not have an alternative choice. It took time for her to get used to leading the growing pod, though she did relatively well managing the Silvertide's affairs. If she were to get caught up in her work and neglect her obligations, she was put in check by other leaders in the pod.

As Daedra was now absorbed in her role as Lia, Kelani picked up where her mother left off in her studies. She looked to her daughter to follow through with things they had found together. The young Svefra carefully investigated leads on artifacts and discovered new relics trapped in parts of the sea floor. Occasionally she’d find a place of origin for a figurine or ancient utensil with Daedra's help, but still she was not able to get far on her own. Perhaps she and her mother were more alike than she thought after being distracted by the men who wanted to charm a Lia’s daughter. She shared her interest in the ocean’s history, yet could never match the intensity of her mother’s passion.

There were rumors of ancient runes washing up on the shore of a new Falyndar region named Syka. When Daedra was finally able to find time, the opportunity to explore arose and the pair decided to take advantage of it. However, death's tight grip on took hold on the Silvertides once more. In the Winter of 417AV deep in the Suvan Sea, a shockwave was felt the night of Daedra’s sudden passing. The day before the two were supposed to leave for Syka. she was found untouched and lifeless in the quarters of her ship clutching a complex fragment of metal in her rigid hands. There was no evidence of foul play on the body though it did not seem of her essence to end her own life. Several small burns scattered across her body and select pages of her journal seemed to be burnt where writing was supposed to be. It was not known if she did this herself or it was the work of her mother’s mysterious killer. Kelani was not the first one to find her mother's body and lashed out at her pod for suspecting they had something to do with her demise. Death of natural causes was common among the Svefra, but this did not make sense. They were not equipped to investigate this type of casualty and she was left baffled by it all.

Kelani found no comfort with her kin as they were equally as confused and put off from her accusations. Acting on one of her strange gut instincts, she departed from her pod in her casinor the day Daedra's body was laid to rest and offered to Laviku. She took her belongings, the relic found at the time of death and whatever was left of her mother’s research. She sailed the coasts for half a season with her only companion being her Tavan before arriving to Syka. After experiencing some of the dangers that came with sailing the Suvan on your own, she decided to reside there for the time being to find a better chance at safety and possibly some help to decipher the strangeness surrounding her mother’s death.

✨Gnosis✨

Image

Oceanus - 1st Mark of Laviku: Marked individuals can first and foremost spot Otani readily. Otani will recognize them and often seek them out to play and communicate. Individuals with one Laviku mark can also drink salt water and have the mark automatically convert it to fresh water for ocean survival. Individuals know the direction of the sea if they are on land and how far away it is (in aprox miles). They also immediately recognize where progression tide is, meaning if it is incoming or outgoing or in transition between.
