Katiesa Thule is a mostly human cleric and adherent of the Lord of Dreams. Generally, she prefers to be called Katie. Born and raised in Wehnimer's Landing, she is the only child of Damangherik Thule (former cleric of Lorminstra) and Jakaesa Jynel (ranger of Imaera). If she could sing, she might have been a bard. Alas, she can not. Still, she is passionate about telling stories and tales that are based upon events in, or are simply firmly set in, the western side of Elanthia. Although she has had success in past storytelling contests, she no longer wishes to compete, preferring exhibitions and storytelling evenings where all tales, storytellers, and listeners may be winners.

A perfectly functional runestaff, a leather-bound bleached orase crook.

"Nightborne" - a silver-chased slender eonake badelaire: Tapering to a keen point, the badelaire's unusually slender damascened blade is forged of opalescent eonake, silver-whorled as if starlight fed the blade's delight. The leather-wrapped hilt, sized for a smaller hand, is guarded by curved quillions wrought in an intricately formed joining of twin crescent moons. An engraved word is framed within a trio of inward-falling dreamstone droplets set in the pommel's base.

A gleaming argent-hued rolaren katar - Usually paired with her badelaire; within the katar dwells the spirit of an argent-sparked black stallion.

"Shooting Star"- a void black rolaren kris patterned with stars along the blade; found in the Reim plaza during a group hunt, improved, and serves as her back up off-hand weapon. Thin and slightly tapered at the tip, the rolaren blade of this kris is mostly colored a rich shade of void black. Tiny pinpoints of white are scattered in random patterns across the dark metal, making the matte surface appear like a starry sky. Intertwined steel wire forms the elegant crossguard, while the hilt has been carved from dappled silver wood. A rough sphere of moonstone has been set into the pommel, the surface of the gem etched with tiny stars.

Hairsticks. Hairsticks? Maaaybe.

Twin hand crossbows, one with a tiny bunny spirit because bunnies are frightening.
