Name: Ariean Hunithitryn'Rae Titles: "Many (Fancy) Titles", Silver Rider, N'Velahrn, Walker in Twilight, Stalker of The Queen, Alley Cat, Star, World's Littlest Giant, "Quencher of Doom to the Doom", Little Dove, Keeper of Entori's Half, Handy Girl, Listener, Dances with Orcs, The Clanless Race: Wood Elf (Or'Tel'Quessir), though that is not that apparent. Gender: female Age:125 Between 120 and 130.
built: slender and lithe hair: coppery-red eyes: silvery-gray with gold flecks skin: light, but without any hallmarks of a specific subrace
Reaching slightly over 5' she is of slender build, balancing distinct, fragility with natural strength. Obviously in great control of her body, her movements are beautiful and precise which gives her a feline-like appeal.
She has a delicate and angular face, with ageless alluring appeal of her kind. The hallmark serene expression of her people, is often broken up with different kind of smiles - from impish and mischievous to smug or cheeky grins. Her eyes are silver-grey with gold flecks and ever watchful, presenting to the world an air unhidden curiosity.
The hair is coppery-red and unruly, which she tries to have in check by keeping it at shoulder-length. She carries it often in braids, sometimes adorned with whatever strikes her fancy. Pointy ears peek out from underneath the mane, marking her to be an elf. But which kind of elf is more difficult to guess. While her hair color could point to her being either of the sun or wood elves, her light-shade skin baring no tinge points to neither. However, when she is in the company of Isiolith Galana, it becomes abundantly clear that she is a wood elf as Isiolith. The resemblance in hair color, and body-types is striking; though neither of women admits to having any known family ties.
During her stay in Cormyr, the open, fun-loving, spontaneous, flirtatious nature has been replaced with a more quiet, withdrawn and careful demeanor. However, her old aura of abundant curiosity, occasional innocence and social awkwardness are still shining through. So is the undercurrent of something exotic, maybe even feral. The withdrawn nature is sometimes replaced with a brooding mood, that is accentuated by nonchalant, and even anti-social behavior. Other days, this can suddenly be contradicted by whimsical lightheartedness and almost child-like urges. At times, the apparent serenity is only broken by her eyes turning from her usual silvery to dark like that of storm-clouds; or by a quick glimmer of the gold flecks in her eyes, that is frequently followed by a happy smile.
Her speech patterns in Common and attitude seem also to be switching, from more open and slang-like to proper. Her voice is a pleasant one, her Common spoken with melodious Elven accent peppered with Damaran intonations.

"Only those who are allowed to make their own mistakes can ever truly succeed."
"Some people's tongues wag quicker than a dog's tail."

"Diversity and Unity are not opposites."
"My mother/father/auntie/<insert family member> always says <insert saying>"
((I have based my idea of Ariean's archery on her being from the eastern side of Faerûn (Unapproachable East). Yuirwood is the Easter-most elven outpost. The Rashemi are supposedly slavic-like, there are Tuigan horseman nearby that are kinda like Mongolian, and there is a Shou Exptatriate and the Golden Road nearby. Therefore Ariean's archery is like that used by horseback archers in Mongolia, the Hun (Hungary), Turkish and elsewhere.))
Archery Style: Most often in battle, especially with those she doesn't know that well, she prefers to use her bow. However she no longer stays in the back, but keeps dangeorusly close to melee combatants. She shoots the bow with eastern, instictive aim, thumb-release techniques and appears to be perfectly comfortable to put the arrow on both the inside and outside of the bow. Although this is perfectly suited for rapid fire, she often concentrates at targeting vital parts and organs.
Heartwood bow:Crafted by Entori, the Heartwood bow is elegant and long, it's made of Darkwood, but it is polished to reveal red fibres that continue along the length of the bow, and is polished into a glossy shine. It's hand haft, is made of Ironwood, and is cut so the elegant fingers of the elfess using the bow, move with ease and comfort. Upon the interior of the hand half, the 3 rings of Angharradh are placed, as to always remind the elfess of herself.
Ariean's Thumb-Ring: an archery tumb-ring made of polished brown jade, that she wears on her right hand. She uses the ring for drawing and releasing the bow string, instead of the more traditional two-finger technique.
Melee Style: While Ariean's archery is usually performed with quiet and detached focus, her melee is that of fierce and feisty excitement. Her combat style is more reminiscent of a dance of strike-and-dodge with a lot of acrobatic elements like flick-flacs, jumps and doing cartwheels. However, when she uses her shield, the acrobatic elements are kept to a bare minimum.
Main-hand weapon: Winter's Breath
Crafted by Entori, this blade looks anything but like the delicate weapons associated with dueling and sport-fighting, but as the deadly weapon they become in skilled hands. Looking more like a sword this really is a rapier. Quite similar in appearance to Ariean's previous rapier, it differs by higher quality, but less fanciful swept hilt.
Off-hand weapon: Blade of Flaming Deceit
Flames seem to cloak this blade and give off an intense heat to any who draw near. They also mask the length of the blade.
Large shield of elven design.
((Wish the fighting style could be something similar to these 2. ))
Adventuring Gear: While ready, or waiting for adventure Ariean can be seen in simple, botty fitting clothing in browns and grays. Calling it lovingly for "drab", Ariean claims it's very practical; To that she adds knee-high boots, hood, gloves with cut-off fingers, a bag and pouches with eclectic collection of knick-knacks and dee dads.
Ariean keeps this bracer on to save her arm from the stripe of string. It also keeps the string gliding sharply and quickly across her arm, thereby making a sharper shot.
Left Bicep Guard:
Doubling as a piece of jewelry, this in reality is a small piece of arm armor, protecting her left bicep when she isn't using the shield.
Left Hand Gaurd:
Often, on her left hand fingers she wears silver-leaf claw armor-like jewelry. Except for being pretty, she can use it to slash her opponents when seemingly unarmed.
Ring of the Alley Cat:
On her right hand, except for the archery thumb-ring, she wears a bronze ring with cat ears on it...
.... and a rather simple but distinctly elven silver band Earring:
In her left ear (which she often touches or fidgets with) is a mithril and electum braided earring.
Ever present on her person are two silvery amulets; one of a downward pointing tirangle with three interconnecting rings in it, and the other of a crescent moon.
A simple-looking golden brooch.
Guitar of Doom:
Gifted by Frubo to the "pretty elfess and the pretty elf for Quenching the Doom of Doom", this guitar has certainly seen better days. Battered and scraped, having been through much, today the guitar is clean, polished, and treated with love. Even if it isn't used for playing beautiful music. Frubo seems to not remember owning, or even parting with this guitar.
This painting is a treasured gift.
Recently Ariean has been (and can be, but not always) spotted wearing this strange contraption around her waist. It's covered in black fur, it's long enough to coil around her hips and waist in several layers. The end that hangs down her leg ends in a horny-ridged pad.
Ariean's Special Souvernir Box
A hand-crafted box made from sweetly sccented cedar wood. Each panel is hand cut and assembled with a grove and tongue pattern. The sides are decorated with images of forest creatures embossed in raised reliefs. While in the centre of the smooth lid the image of a great cedar tree is carved with meticulou sattention to detail. The inside of the box is lined iwth a soft nut-brown velvet. Every token or treasured momento can lie securely cusioned from the rough and tumble adventuring life.
