An Eastern Dark Elf

Shamed, beaten, punished. You got it all. Once the apple of their eye. Now the scorn of all.
The mark on your face your burden for eternity.
Disgraced.
Murderer. Dangerous. Betrayer.

But now...
»Ika ne Souugerisi... ...«
»Kiamast! II^ seeiai Ika-ma-Hinwari. Ikeri kiraseeen seeiai.«




People don't ever change. Or do they.

Brief

A sellsword from the island chain between Eretejva tundra and the Isles of Sheketh. Goes by the name Sannoru or Sanno for short, San for even shorter. After leaving, no longer goes by the honorific Sannoru of the Thousand Valleys. However gained the title: Sanno of the Hidden Valley of the Sweet Peas, to associate them with their birthland and help identify them.

Appearance

When you look upon them, the first thing to ingest is their striking skin, which is so blue that even pure dyes of Amol-Kalit cannot compete in the brilliance. Though upon closer inspection, their facade is marred and scarred from various age-old strifes and new ones too, the most characteristic scar being the assembly located around their mouth, one of which extends further up their left cheek... Other than that, their right cheek shows a tattoo consisting of a bar and 3 dots, it's very obscurring and pronounced, it's a mark with which to track prisoners really, not fashion, tends to cover it up.
And when you're looking that close, you'll realize that Sannoru is either a feminine male or a butch lass. Their voice and mannerism ambiguous, while the clothes they wear to cover up any indicative parts.

Personality

Sannoru is calm and perceptive. But only so on the surface, their deceiving calmness masks a rather short temper that can go full steam rather quickly if the first signs of san losing it are ignored. However, oddly enough their patience can sometimes immensely surpass that of others. Taking a lot to truly insult them or get on their nerves at times. Really... petty insults or diminutives don't scratch them at all like they might others.
Generally, they won't ever complain about cumbersome natural phenomena. Standing in the rain, standing in the hail, being blown around by the heavy wind, won't phase them - ever. And if you complain about the weather, you'll likely get a scornful remark from Sanno instead of an agreement on something you have no might over.
Aversion is the most common reaction the elf gives to kindness. Sanno is very dismissive and distrustful of signs of affection, as well as often enough assumes such intent is to bring harm later. San's spirit animal is a hedgehog.
People can't hurt you if there are no people around in the first place; see, that's the kind of logic Sanno takes. Lost any form of trust in complex societies and only participates as a social mask.
Brutally loyal and honour bound. However, has all but abandoned loyalty to big groups and factions to keep their sense of security...safe. Shame is the worst feeling to san and so tends to keep a well built up composure.

Despite possessing the means to travel swiftly, and does so when required, moves rather sluggishly on their own accord as if they have all the time of the world. Tends to adapt to other people's pace but if travel speed is up to them, it'll never be quick.
Essentially never 'in a hurry'.

Magic, Skills & inventory

Out of practice, that's what 20 years do to you. Take note of all that is written and lower it for 5 levels of starvation.

Precise, fast and exact
, those are the three traits that gave san their fame in their homeland in the first place. No other of her kind could compete in scroll magic and quick, exact writing.
Hand to hand combat, hey that works too, trained it since early childhood through vigorous training that The Valley of Sweet Peas was known for.
Acrobat, climbing, backflips, athletics, gymnastics (and has a sweet spot for dancing) and all other similar things, but then again their preferred pace is sluggishly slow.

Water, it's heir strongest element of use, they can use other elements as well with wind following close second. Of note is also their blood magic (water), which can draw out blades from the fluid.
Commodity spells, things like transformations, shapeshifting through leaves, smoke screens, protective contracts etc. etc.
Scroll magic, all of that is concentrated in scroll magic, san can write absurdly quickly while in action, but prefers to prewrite scrolls for later use. A large scroll is used to hold all the heavy spells like strong gales, and two smaller scrolls for commodity spells while small unrolled strips are used for quick effect spells.

Scroll case, carries one on their side, it stores a singular long scroll out of cotton
Chestnut ink, it's very dark and neat, used to write the spells in.
Paintbrushes of Eretejvan squirrel, a set of three brushes of various thicknesses.
Ni-nat ee, a small 3-branches sword, in shape akin to an antler.
