Last Name: Azenci
Aeili is slightly taller than the average elf, but she is very thin, bordering on anorexic. Her cheeks show signs of this gauntness, although the degree of severity of her apparent frailty is determined by the state of her chronic illness which comes and goes. Despite her somewhat sickly appearance she would probably still be considered rather attractive, as elves generally are.
She has tattooing across her forehead and upper cheeks, and while more or less obscure the tattoos just above her cheekbones could be recognised by those in the know as the holy symbol of Corellon Larethian on the right cheek, and Sehanine Moonbow on the left.
Apart from her tattooing she does not seem to have any other obvious decorative ornamentations, earrings, bangles, bracelets etc, except for a necklace with Mystra's holy symbol which is sometimes visible around her neck, at other times concealed inside the folds of her blue and white Mystran vestments, and two rings, one worn on each hand.
Race: Sun Elf
Age: 149 (Actual); 268 (Effectual)
Height 5'7" (170cm)
Weight: 100 lbs (45kg)
Hair: Long golden blonde.
Aeili is a rather temperate and mild-mannered sun elf, although her life experience has lead her in a far different direction than her ancestry-proud parents and kinsfolk. She endeavours to be polite and eloquent in her use of language, sometimes tending towards scholastic intellectualism in the way she approaches conversation, especially regarding the topics of religion and magic.
When she first came to the Sword Coast she was rather naive about human nature and society but her years have helped calm her inner anxiety about living in a foreign land and culture. She is cautious as to whom she trusts, but those who win her confidence will find a helpful and loyal friend and companion in the Mystran priestess. Aeili still has many inner struggles, such as finding love and dealing with her chronic illness, and because of these things she can, at times, come across as emotionally unstable.
Aeili eschews confrontations, violence and overuse of magic, and will prefer to talk her way out of difficulties. If push comes to shove, she will hesitantly use magical enchantments to support her diplomatic efforts and, failing that, she will rely on her innate diviner's 6th sense to judge danger to herself and others and attempt to respond in the most efficient and effective manner, whether it be teleporting away to safety or using True Speak divinations to force an alternate outcome.

Possible Plot-Hook Ideas
[Retired - Irrelevant]
As an ordained Mystran priestess, Aeili has access to Weaveglow (signified IG by a ring of blue light, 5ft). She will never reveal this power to any non-Mystran.
She is a former member of the old Weavemasters guild.
[Update 16/09/2014] Aeili has a miscellaneous quirk: she will often flutter/blink her eyelids repeatedly when stressed, excited or flustered.

[Update 13/12/2015] Aeili discovered that her recently-made Elistraeean friend, Drathyrra, was not willing to return from her goddess' realm after her decease. Aeili was shattered by this news.
[Update 20/12/2015] Aeili was slain on 20th Nightal, 1351 after sharing her life-force with Dawnknight Eldarian in order to ensure the defeat of The General.
[Update 08/01/2016] Aeili was resurrected successfully on the 8th of Hammer, much to the appreciation of her friends and of Charraj. The powerful healing magics of the Resurrection spell have, for now, left Aeili in a stable, healthy condition, although the strain of having returned from the dead does wear upon her.
[Update 10/04/2016] Aeili and Charraj split up some months ago and the two have hardly seen each other since. What limited contact they have had has been nothing less than awkward.
[Update 10/04/2016] Aeili was somewhat distressed by the news of Celestia's passing away in the depths of the Underdark. Together with some of the other elves of Doron Amar she was able to locate her body and see that it got returned to the relative safety of the surface. Aeili then refused to resurrect her because of the moral quandary she felt about it.
[Update 10/04/2016] Aeili was incredibly proud to welcome Mili as the newest member of the Temple of Mystra. She is now tutoring the teenager in the Mystran faith and wizardry.

[Update 24/06/2016] Aeili has been in good health and, despite a temporary crisis of faith, is overseeing a few important changes in the Temple of late.
[Update 20/08/2016] Aeili's health has once again taken a turn for the worse. She is now spending significant amounts of time in reclusive bed rest.
[Update 03/09/2016] During a ritual to restore Elyssa Symbaern's magic, Aeili's constitution took another turn for the worse after she transferred 119 years of her potential lifeforce to power the ceremony. She is dying.
[Update 12/09/2016] In the evening of the 12th of Eleint, under the guardianship of a full Selune, Aeili partook of a incredibly rare and potent herbal tea made of the petals of the legendary moonflower, and within moments her vitality had returned to her.
[Update 03/10/2016] Aeili has now joined the Elvish community of Doron Amar as a citizen, and her health is in full recovery.
[Update 20/11/2016] After spending more than a month in development and research, Aeili finally completed her most monumental achievement of magical creation thus far: two magical orbs of her own design. One remains in Doron Amar where she made them; the other was delivered to Candlekeep.
[Update 21/04/2017] Aeili completed her final projects on continental Faerun, namely her unique spell research and two tel'kiira gemstones for the use of EDE & DA respectively, before departing with a group of Evereskan pilgrims for Evermeet. It would be the last time she ever set her feet on the continent.
[Update 01/08/2017] Aeili's Legacy Fund was utilised to renovate the Temple of Mystra with truly splendid results. Her final legacy in absentia.
[Update 16/08/2017] Aeili passed away amidst a High Magic ritual on the eve of the 16th of Eleasias, Year of the Arch, 1353 DR
