Mithiel Sael

Unread post by MistyMountain » Sun Nov 04, 2018 6:32 am

First Name: Mithiel "Mith"
Last Name: Sael

Appearance: Mith has long hair in one braid. She has fine metal plating and chain links covering most of her thin body. She is not unattractive but is advanced in her years, her age makes her seem a bit unapproachable. A powerful longbow is in her hands unless she is in a town, which is uncommon.

Race: Wood Elf
Hair: brown with a red tinge
Eyes: Green
Age:
Height: 5'7''
Weight: Scrawny even for an elf

Distinguishing features:

Real people have flaws: Mith is especially frail and scrawny, even for an elf. She is prone to illness and disease.

Passion: She is possessed with unusual intelligence for a wood elf, and is obsessed with gaining information about cosmology and the planes. She likes to summon extra planar beings just to talk to them about their home and practices. In secret, she binds evil or chaotic beings and doesn't let them free until she has had a sufficiently satisfying conversation.


Goals: What does your character want to accomplish in the next "tenday?" She is fulfilling a task for the high priestess of Rillifane in Leuthilspar. She is to search Myth Rhynn for ancient magical lore specifically anything related to mythals warding off devils and fiends, and for any other magical things she can find there.

Year? She hopes to make more friends among the Eladrin, hopefully eventually meeting a Tulani. Their life goal? She suspects that somehow her dreams and the strange magical "seed" she was given in her youth are linked somehow. She would like to complete the task that her dreams call her to complete, but she does not know what that is.
Hidden: show
[OOC: She is to find the tree that will receive the World Tree's pollen, creating a fruit with seed that will grow a new world tree after the old one has perished from the spellplague, but this is probably never going to happen on BG]
Deity: Rillifane Rallathil
Initial Alignment: Neutral Good
Profession: High Priestess
Base Class & Proposed Development: Druid/Heirophant/Thaumaturge
Habits/Hobbies:
Languages: Elven, Sylvan, Common
Weapon of Choice: Longbow

Potential hooks:
1) Her position as a Heirophant of Rillifane is very important to her. She will do all she can to protect nature and balance.
2) She seeks knowledge of the planes and extra planar beings
3) Mith is still basically good, and will try to help good folk who are in need that she passes in her travels.

Backstory:

Mith was raised by nymphs in a grove with a pool in Cloakwood. She remained there and lived as the nymphs did for a century, without straying from that tranquil spot, which she later realized was under divine protection. The primordial energies seeped into her as she lived from day to day, with hardly a care. She ate of the land and drank from the pool, slept under the stars and did not have any studies or duties. She was quite wary of leaving this grove, an attitude she learned from the nymphs with whom she lived. When she became barely nubile, she began having powerful and portentous dreams. Rillifane never revealed himself in her dreams, but his eternal presence was always there in the background, as she surveyed with an eagles eye various planes that she would travel. She began developing the powers of a druid naturally, and excelled in summoning almost without effort. She realized her time in this grove was coming to an end and the travels that her dreams portended were approaching.

Mith crouched among the trees. It was late in the day, and the sun was leaving slanted streams of light between the tree trunks, when it could pierce the dense foliage above. She had just come out of one her her waking dreams, and was comforted to see her boar Aloof snuffling the ground nearby. All day she had wandered with her eyes rolled back in her head, and bow slack in her hand, seeing visions of another, darker forest. She shuddered as she remembered the glowing eyes flashing and fading just a little way out of her vision in that Night Forest. What had she been searching for? She knew not. Now, she had come to herself and had opened her pack and unwrapped a large golden almost-spherical object. The nymphs had given it to her on her day of departure. It was not a seed... or was it? Its size certainly set it apart from any tree she had known, it filled half her backpack. And it was magical, but its magic was ...otherworldly... and the way its magical thrum was steady made her feel as if it would go on thrumming forever.

She put it back in her backpack and stood up, collecting herself enough to take in her surroundings and remember where she was going. The great heirophant of Rillifane's Grove in Leuthilspar, Evermeet had sent her here, to the forest of Tethir, after she had spent many years studying druidry and been initiated as a heirophant in her own right. She did not know if her colleagues would approve of her ability as a binder of outsiders so she had kept it secret so far. She was looking for the ruins of Myth Rhynn in which a relic was to be found that she needed. And she had befriended a Gheale by the name of Arancard, who looked enough like an elf that she made her way without much fuss. He protected her when she entered her waking dreams, and was with her now, looking at her with bemusement.

"We have wandered far to the east, it would be best to make camp soon. This part of the wood is... unfriendly."

Mith looked at his sword which was stained with blood, and Arancard noticed.

"Orcs." He spat after saying the word

Mith nodded then without speaking and they turned back west in search of a place to make camp.
