If two words could describe this young chondathan woman that appears to be in her mid twenties, then these could be "Wind Walker".
Norah stands at 5'7'' ft (1.70 meters) tall, with a feminine and slender figure that seems to have been achieved throughout years of dedication, but also of sacrifice. Even though her muscles are clearly more developed than the average, these would not appear overly bulky, but lean and discrete instead. In fact, her frame indicates training and effort being directed at one aspect above them all: speed. When Norah walks or sprints, her movements seem to possess an unusual degree of spontaneous gracefulness to them. At times, it would look as if she was defying the very natural laws of the Prime Material Plane.
Norah's skin is fair, but also sunntaned. Evidently, she spends considerable time in the outdoors and enjoying the Sun. Her blond hair has the tonality of golden sands, and she usually braids it in ponytails of different length and style. Still, it remains unclear whether she does this for practical reason, or due to a specific fashion concept. Her almond shaped eyes are of a captivating sky-blue colour, and glow faintly. The glow however usually intensifies or diminishes when Norah's tranquility has been disturbed by external factors.
Norah's ears are slightly pointy, but less so than elven or half elven ones. Her lips are a bit sharp in shape, while her nose is small and turned upwards. She bears no makeup of any kind, and thus her attractivness could be considered "natural" (CHA base 14).
Usually reserved and somewhat shy towards strangers, Norah's behavior changes quickly when she is among friends. Her core personality is an odd combintation of her years as a sheltered teen, and the more ascetic spiritual ways learnt in a monastery. Due to this, Norah at times appears, or perhaps pretends to be more naive and modest than she really is. She maintains an amicable and playful disposition, but it would probably be evident to some that she knows what she is doing.
Behind her friendly nature though, there is an ever elusive and confident young lady, who sees the world and maybe the planes beyond as well, as her playground. Even though she is not absent minded at all, there are times when she seems to be lost in deep thought. Perhaps she is meditating or perhaps it is her way to lessen the impact caused by the more shocking experiences imprinted in her mind and memories while adventuring somewhere dangerous.
Norah is a martial artist who favors mobility and quickness. Her considerable grace, combined with her intuition gained after years of monastic training, allow her to evade and deflect most attacks directed her way. Her approach to combat is that of a deadly choreography that she is constantly improving. She pays attention to her footwork, but also to every detail present in the timing of her strikes. A way to describe her expertise, would be that Norah is performing a daring and elegant combat dance, done at the rythm of music she alone can hear.
When on duty, she bears the official colours and uniform of the RCMH. When she is not in uniform, she prefers varied attires of blue, yellow or pink tones. Her main weapons are divinely imbued combat gloves, a katana she calls "Cyan Edge" and a double cammed light crossbow.
