[edit]

GENERAL INFORMATION

Born to Ricard and Auelin Harte in the Miller's Glade province of Coerthas, Ahelissa is the oldest of 5 children. Ahelissa spent the better part of her childhood learning to grow crops and work the land even though she had dreams of becoming a Knight in the service of Ishgard. When Dalamud fell and changed the landscape, Ricard led his family to the gates of the Holy See as refugees. The family took up residence in the upper level of the Brume and have lived there since. As she came to age, Ahelissa and several of her friends enlisted in Ishgard's standing army. She sent her pay back to her family in the Brume, hoping to ease their life for as long as she could. It was during this time that she established herself a reputation as an excellent lancer.

Ahelissa was garrisoned at the Stone Vigil when the Dravanians attacked and broke it's defenses. Surrounded by Dravanians, defending several wounded soldiers and Knights, Ahelissa fought and killed the Elder Wyrm Chkra'sa however, she, was badly injured in the fight. Rescued from certain doom by a relief force of Dragoons and Knights Ahelissa and the other casualties of the Vigil were spirited away to the safety of the See to be healed and lauded as heroes. Ahelissa was soon after awarded the title of Knight Dragoon and went on to become one of Ishgard’s finest weapons against the Dravanain horde as a Dragoon. Once the truths of the Dragonsong war's beginnings were made public knowledge, Ahelissa resigned her title and left Ishgard proper for parts unknown. Later that same summer she turned up in Gridania working odd jobs at the various guilds there. Through no design of her own, she found herself involved with an incident with the guardian tree and Ixal that led her back to picking up the lance in the service of the Twin Adders and defense of her new home. Since then, she has done her level best to stand by the vows that she took when knighted, to defend those who cannot defend themselves foremost among those vows. Ahelissa has returned to Ishgard on several occasions to visit family and friends but it was only just recently that she came into the service of House Savaliere. It was through this service that Ahelissa met Hope Salaviere. Hope helped Ahelissa tap her potential as a Conjurer. Having no luck with Ishgardian Astrology when she was young, Ahelissa's exposure to magic up to that point had been on the receiving end of healing after the Stone Vigil. Once her eyes were opened to the possibilities however, she delved headlong into the study of any arcane arts she could. No one is quite certain just how proficient Ahelissa is with the Magic as she tends to only use what she has learned in times of great need. However, there is no doubt from anyone that has seen her in action that she is a very powerful and capable Mage.

Recently, Ahelissa has begun to feel the pull of the deep woods and the spirits that lie yet undiscovered within the less traveled parts of the Black Shroud. Selling her house, saying goodbye to her family and friends, she was last seen by Kan-E-Senna disappearing into the woods, a smile on her face and a spring in her step. No one is sure if or when Ahelissa will return, and what changes and growth she'll have undergone in her time away from her home.

APPEARANCE

Ahelissa is short for a Highlander owing in part to her father's Midlander heritage. She has deep green eyes and black hair she tends to keep short, in a mostly natural "How it fell" style. She has a scar running downward from the right side of her forehead to her right cheek, her hair does a good job of covering it most of the time, glamours kept in place cover the fact that her right eye is a milky white and 'blind'.

She is well muscled from her service as a Dragoon, however few rarely see this.

Her left forearm is horribly scarred from injuries received during the fall of the Stone Vigil, she no longer wears a wrap to cover the scars that stretch from wrist to slightly above the elbow. Both healed burns and the distinct tooth pattern of an elder dragon can be made out if one were to look close enough at the scar. No amount of magic or special brews will remove these scars, as the poison of the dragon lingered long enough in her system to make them permanent.
Aspects That Stand Out:
Hair: Black
Eyes: Green
Height: 5 fulm, 6 ilm
Weight: 132 Ponz
Build: Trim & Well Muscled
Scars: Right side of face, a thin scar from mid forehead to upper cheek
Scars: Left forearm, from just below wrist to just above her elbow.

PERSONALITY

An honorable woman if there ever was, Ahelissa lives every day for the sole purpose of enriching the lives of those she touches. She is a generally happy person but even more so when helping others, a smile and laughter often dances from her lips as she moves among the patients at clinics or the children in orphanages, even the injured on the battlefield are blessed with her comforting smile as they are tended. But she is also a fierce and determined warrior when the need arises. A soldier and eventually Dragoon during the Dragonsong wars, she is no stranger to the battlefield, often fighting with a ferocity that take those she knows aback.

L I K E S

Tea. Ahelissa is fond of trying different mixtures and flavours of tea, it is among her favorite of drinks.
Fishing. She shares many a fond memory with her Father of fishing on the rivers and creeks of Miller's Glade.


D I S L I K E S

Cruelty. If there is one thing she cannot abide by it would be cruelty to others. Those that choose the path of cruelty (in whatever form) will find themselves in direct opposition, and often times, in confrontation with her. She will not suffer the knowledge of those she deems cruel for long without taking action of one form or another to be sure that they cannot continue to prey upon anyone.
Disloyalty.A hold over from her time as a Dragoon, Ahelissa views disloyalty as a sin near that of cruelty to those that cannot stand for themselves.
Void. Being a White Mage, Ahelissa has a dislike for the void and void tainted and as such, she will go out of her way to expunge the world of void taint and save those that have been taken when she can.

H O B B I E S

Gardening. When not on official Seeker duty, she spends much of her free time tending the gardens of her home in the Lavender Beds.
Aetheric Study. Ahelissa spends most evenings, after the sun goes down, digging through her sizeable library studying Magic and Aetheric theory.
Sewing. Ahelissa's mother taught her to sew at a young age and it is a skill that she has kept up with since, making many of her and her husband's clothes herself.

S T R E N G T H S

Hearer. When in the Twelveswood she must obey the rules of the Hedge. She is extremely well versed in Conjury, White Magicks and Sharlayan Astrology. She has studied and is comfortable with Thaumaturgy, Black Magicks and Summoning. Her interests do not stop there, she is currently studying Ancient Nymian Magicks as well as the Red Magicks from Ala Mhigo. While her skill with healing magicks is unparalleled she is well rounded enough in the other schools to be considered a very competent opponent on the field. She has also shown a knack for teleportation spells, using them to great effect to place herself in close proximity to where ever she needs to be.
Echo. Ahelissa possesses The Echo. Unlike some, her gift does not allow her to dig within the minds so see people's pasts, nor does it gift her with the ability to understand all languages instantaneously. Instead, new languages take a bit of time before she can get the 'feel' for it, but it does come at a considerably quicker pace than having to learn the language naturally. The Strength of Ahelissa's Echo lies in her ability to mimic any spell cast in her proximity. Much like other people who possess the Echo with languages, Ahelissa learns magicks just by seeing spells cast, essentially making her 'multilingual' with schools of magick and explaining why she has such a large repertoire of magicks at her disposal..

W E A K N E S S E S

PTSD. Thanks to the intensity of the fight betwen her and Chkra'sa at the Fall of the Stone Vigil, Ahelissa suffers from mild PTSD.
Sworn of Halone. Ahelissa has sworn to Halone to help those that could not help themselves and to protect those that cannot protect themselves, this can be used against her as the Knight would rather die than break this oath..


M O T I V A T I O N S

Sworn of Halone - Ahelissa swore to help those that could not help themselves to Halone, an oath she has every intention of keeping even though she's long since laid down her spear. She will not suffer cruelty to exist in the world and will go to any length to ensure that the young, defenseless and downtrodden are safe and protected from the evils of the world.

Captian of the Wraith squad, Kyo is a proficient user of void and a fairly competent warrior.

Its because of these reasons Ahelissa tends to avoid interacting at length with Kyo when she can.
Jarek Savaliere, Neutral. () - The Power-Hungry.
Character's Thoughts: "Her Ex-Husband."
Jarek holds the dubious honor of being Ahelissa's first husband. Ahelissa saved him from years of servitude as the thrall of a Voidsent.

Ahelissa left Jarek with his brother in Ishgard, with his brother Baron Killian Savaliere and swore never to return to Ishgard.
Isycar Heilrendre, Neutral. () - The Crass.
Character's Thoughts: "The Saboteur."

C'Kalrune, Neutral. () - The Cruel.
Character's Thoughts: "The Vicious."
Ex-Guard and warrior for Notre Ciel, 'Kal' as he's known hovers in a unique spot among the people on Ahelissa's list. While she considers him a friend and capable warrior, she cannot condone some actions that he has taken on recent joint missions, and as such tends to keep him at arms length.
Levidian Savaliere, Enemy. () - The Adversary.
Character's Thoughts: "The Void-Thrall."
Levidian Savaliere was the head of house Savaliere when Ahelissa came to work for Notre Ciel. It was later discovered that Levidian was a Dark mage and at least one encounter with him and his minions left Ahelissa's sister, Roysa, injured badly enough she was unable to continue as a guard for Notre Ciel.

ಌ OOC NOTES ಌ

OOC INFORMATION

Player Note
I rarely plan my characters future, so everyone she meets and interacts with has an effect on her, some are chronicled here - some not.
Personal RP Limits
I do not ERP, nor do I involve myself with story arcs that bring torture or harm to children. Yes, implying something happend in the past is fine, but Ahelissa is the sort of person that would instantly step in and put a wrench in the works for stories that revolve around those things.
I will playRescue of said suffering children.. Happy endings for the little ones is my only requirement, most other things I am open to if you send a tell first so that we can clear up any grey areas.
I won't playAhelissa and her family are off limits. I enjoy playing her as a character and intend on keeping her around for a long while hale and whole.
Disclaimer
Little Tidbits.
I'm not unreasonable. Send me a tell and we can talk about what you have in mind.

CHARACTER TIDBITS

Potential Plot Hooks
Ahelissa was sent home to Ishgard after the fall of the Stone Vigil and hailed a hero before she was granted her Knighthood with the Dragoons. People will occasionally recognize her for this.
A prolific healer, Ahelissa is always helping people whever she can - it's entirely possible she's treated you in the past if you've passed through Gridania and been refused treatment by Stillfane Glade.
She trains Conjury at Stillfane Glade, if your character is a Conjurer or White Mage it's possible she's helped you in your education of Conjury.
Ahelissa is a Hearer and recognized by Gridania as being a Hearer, as such, she does conduct official business for Stillfane Glade from time to time.
Ahelissa has fought with the Warrior of Light on at least two occasions, it's possible that someone who did the same fought at the same battles as them.
Character Lore Adherence
As a player I try to adhere to game lore as closely as possible, however I am willing to bend here and there in the interest of a good story.
No changes required.
