Lady Ember Palinnar
Well behaved people seldom make history.
Description: Ember carries herself with an air of expectant energy, always on the brink of motion even when she is standing still. When left free, her red hued hair would extend just past her waist, but is usually kept back from her face in a waterfall braid and secured loosely in the back so it doesn't quite blow wild. She is on the smaller side of elven kind, but it is rarely noticed since her presence just seems to fill every room she enters.
Personality: Always sure of herself, even if she hasn't looked before she leaps. Ember bounds in to life with an enthusiasm for all things. Eager to help and solve problems, eager to learn and grow. Whatever slice of cynicism she might have over all the bad that has happened around her, she maintains a bright expression and willingness to keep pressing on.
Background: Ember grew up in the March of House Palinnar, which was settled quite far along the outskirts of the Toren Valley. Some of the more centrally located Lorandi may have referred to them as provincial, but Ember always knew better. She felt privileged to live on the precipice of adventure, on the edge of excitement. Being so far from the center of politics and the hustle and bustle of city life, Ember was allowed to grow up with a great sense of wonder. At a very young age she started to dabble in the Evocationist arts.
Her mother, Camilla Palinnar who was the sister of the Marchioness Tegan Palinnar, took special care in teaching Ember about the Lifewell. She helped to guide the young evocationist in her interests, teaching her that every elf has a breaking point, where pulling on the lines of the Lifewell can backfire. Balance is key in all things, her mother used to say. And Ember would nod and agree and experiment anyways, edging just to the line of too far before backing off again. This lead to several incidents of unintentional fires, usually away from the main estate? usually. Though she was a spirited and defiant child, Ember has since grown in to a rather resourceful, kind and enthusiastic woman. The fiery spirit that graced her in her youth has never dimmed.
|Escanor||I remember teaching her magecraft after her mother's passing. Since then, this firecracker has only grown more. I will continue to teach her waht I know, for I have come to care for her deeply. She has great things ahead of her, even if her temper sometimes holds her back.|
