Holy places are dark places. It is life and strength, not knowledge and words, that we get in them. Holy wisdom is not clear and thin like water, but thick and dark like blood. —C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

General Information

Veyha is a woman best described as off-centered and eccentric, even by those who oft find themselves welcome in the teetering stability of woman's humors. Swathed in a vigor of furs and tailored silks interchangeably does this peculiar Keeper of the Moon reside. With feet rooted in both worlds, she is a prowling beast held fast in the forest of herself; of the very same sinews, painted flesh, and tested bones that make her out to be a person.

She is an emissary of the hunt. A witch, and fanatic who preaches kindredly of the very same wilds she's been so violently shorn from and then reclaimed by time and time again. It's done strange things to her, yet the vestiges of her wandering spirit are still there for those who would seek it.

Trinkets, tonics, and baubles line the walls of her home. A self-made proprietress of an establishment steeped in intrigue in which the esoteric and arcane are found to be commonplace. She's happy to help the curious passerby acquire what they're looking for or provide with a singular service, but rarely is the clatter of gil heard in these transactions.

Hallowed Gold Moon-touched Dark Brown Lithe/Athletic Well-spoken/subtle lilt
Aloof/Eccentric Left-handed Across bridge of nose/eye Racial markings on cheeks Furs/tailored fabrics
Hair & Eyes

White hair with naturally occuring steaks of blonde that is usually kept in a dreadlocked style, and reaches down to her lower back. Her eyes are a hallowed, striking shade of gold.

Physique & Markings

Lithe and athletic physique from a lifetime of hunting. Her arms, hands, and knuckles seem to bare the brunt of her past injuries, detailing an intimate relationship with the claws and fangs of beasts. Has a scar across the bridge of her nose and bisecting her left eye. Has facial markings that are standard for Miqo'te along her cheeks.

Hygiene & Attire

Well groomed. Exotic silks, furs, and well made fabrics catch her eye easily, and the sensation of them against her skin has quickly grown into a fondness. These garments never last long. Always snagged and torn by passing branches, or worn and frayed by whatever activity her whims see her towards. Has a growing collection of silver and bone-wrought rings that she is rarely seen without, and is always looking for talented goldsmiths to aid in adding to said collection.

Psychological Profile

Veyha lives, breathes, and will probably die as some unspeakable amalgamation of all that is hunting. Opportunism, ceaseless adaptation, patience, and a swift decisiveness are all made manifest through the Keeper’s varying quirks and social oddities. ESTP

The following items are things that this individual carries on their person at all times. These are noted for pickpockets, and those watching her closely.

RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play If unsure ask.
Ask about Permadeath.
I won't play Will let you know.
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.
■ Occult/Aetherial services
■ Hunting/Study of beasts
■ Keeper of the Moon culture
■ Business connections
■ Gambling

Player Information
Player Note
There is a lot of information on this character wiki, but it is by no means completely comprehensive. There are chunks of backstory that are left intentionally vague so that details can be later added as developed through creative writing or in role-play revelation. Feel free to use Common or Uncommon rumors freely, if you want to use a Rare Rumor as a plot hook or to spark RP, I would ask that you send me a tell first, to make certain it's alright.
