Novice Danai Egilion
A pen can be mightier than a sword but only if used correctly.
Description: This woman is slender, but with a decent sized chest, with long limbs. Her body is not built for combat, in fact it is quite delicate. Even her facial features, though with a sharpness, to them bear a sense of delicacy. Her silvery blonde hair is long, coming to her backside, and her eyes are a silvery hue, just dark enough to pop against her porcelain skin.
Personality: Danai is a woman of few words, at least when speaking. She doesn't use her voice often because she believes the written word has less chances of being misunderstood. She can be very cheeky or mean with what she writes, which can land her in trouble. She often feels as if she is dismissed for things because of her choice to write over speak. That is fine with her though, it means the observations she has of people and her surroundings are more informative than one would expect. She doesn't enjoy being the center of attention, that takes away from her observation. Her combat and social prowess lack very much, as she is more of an intellect and observer.
Background: Danai recalls very little of her life back on Larandor. Mere glimpses of it. She was a very young child, born but a few years. She understands many of her loved ones were killed by the Host and she was left orphaned. She was placed into the care of her aunt, Verral, the sister of her father Jonas. Verral was the mother of some of Danai's cousins, including Kellam, her aunt's oldest son. Kellam would become very significant in Danai's life very soon.
When it was time for the Third Migration, that would bring the Elves to Aarandor after many trials and tribulations, Verral told Danai to hide until she came and got her. For her own safety. Danai recalls flashes of hiding and waiting for her aunt. It was only when she was older that Danai learned the truth. Her aunt left her to die. However, Kellam was not pleased with this when he found out what had happened. He went back for Danai and for many years refused to go near his mother. He, being a fair bit older than Danai, raised her. He would have little to do with his mother and kept Danai away from her.
So, Danai spent her childhood learning from her most beloved cousin, who was like a father to her, and with him she was well taken care of. With him she witnessed Thelos becoming a thing, seeing Islaspire be built up and destroyed then rebuilt. The floods taking the home she had with her cousin. Grudgingly her aunt finally found a way to make peace with Kellam but very soon after she lost her life. Though Kellam nor Danai had fully forgiven her for leaving Danai to die they did mourn her death.
And as she grew Danai joined The Galithryn Acadeum and became friends with various people. When the Army of Trees was found and seemed to attack Danai offered up to be the organizer of the healers and was given the task. Though, she had hoped things would resolve peacefully they did not fully but casualties were lessened. When the call for champions for Bruindir were called she applied and was denied the first time but when one of the Champions became unable she was chosen and got to meet her beloved God. After that she continued on with her observations of everything and involving herself in the going ons when it interested her.
