Leafiara Autumnwind, or Leafi to her friends, born on Tilamaires the 6th, Jastatos 5092, is a half-sylvan cleric of Tilamaire and citizen of Wehnimer's Landing. Though typically cheerful, she can become ferocious if her friends or her home are at risk and will use anything at her disposal--warding magic, bolt spells, edged weapons, her own hands and feet, spying with the help of friends, skills learned at the Order of Voln, or simply distributing information as a TownCrier reporter--to protect her loved ones.

Despite her youth, she possesses incredible abilities both on the battlefield and as an artisan. In her spare time she's a master cobbler, master painter, master with darts, master of forging brawling weapons, edged weapons, and pole arms, has developed the greatest talent with various instruments that one can without being a bard, became a Guild Master of the Cleric Guild as nominated by Guild Masters Rohese Bayvel-Timsh'l and Mikalmas, and bakes top quality manna bread after being inspired by Cruxophim.

Appearance

You see Event Planner Leafiara Autumnwind the Scion of Shaundara.

She appears to be a Half-Sylvan.

She is moderately tall and has a well-toned frame. She appears to be very young. She has sparkling green eyes and soft, pristine fair skin. She has shoulder length, tousled cherry red hair pulled into a loose ponytail, leaving a pure white circlet with a leaf-framed polished bleakstone centerpiece pushed high across the crown. She has a well-defined, heart-shaped face and slightly pointed ears. She has alternating malachite and azure gloss brushed onto her smooth rounded fingernails.

She is wearing a white-edged red silk cape fastened with an emerald music note pin, a lustrous ruby and diamond necklace, an etched militia badge, a back-tied vanilla cream sundress accented by cookie-shaped moonstones, a pure white silk instrument case with a bold red leaf-shaped latch, a pure white silk gem pouch embroidered with a bold red musical note, a winding pale seashell anklet, and a pair of cherry-tinged vanilla sandals beaded with cookie-shaped pearls.

Non-Canonical Vignettes

[OOC note: These are vignettes I wrote (or, more often, started writing) that never happened and aren't in Leafi's canon, for reasons explained in the pages themselves. Even though they didn't happen, I'm sharing anyway just because... well, I wrote them, so I might as well, right?]


Characteristics

Likes

Dislikes

  • Alcohol
  • Bureaucracy
  • Cowardice
  • High heels
  • Prejudice
  • Slavers
  • Stuffy armor
  • Stuffy clothing
  • Ta'Vaalor

Hopes

  • Acceptance despite being half-sylvan

Fears

  • Boredom

  • Mind control

Other Quirks

  • Can be as greedy with money as she is generous with time and energy
  • Can't wear long sleeves, pants, or fully enclosed shoes (like boots) for long without feeling uncomfortable and out of harmony with nature
  • Does not swear even mildly
  • Extremely naive and ignorant about romance
  • Has a somewhat limited vocabulary, despite her more eloquent mother's best efforts to teach her
  • Romanticizes the heroism of knights as they're presented in plays, but pragmatically thinks spies are more important for protecting the innocent
  • Too impatient and full of energy to study magic and magical items in a traditional academic way, but is blessed by Tilamaire with an ability to hear and adapt to the inner musical harmony of magic around her, essentially allowing her to develop her talent and magical strength in a passive and subconscious way; her always-ongoing learning has led her to great magical power for her young age, giving off the impression of a prodigy
  • Was also an auditory learner in the first place and can remember tones, cadences, and inflections well; between that and Tilamaire's blessing, she can easily remember and transcribe conversations for The TownCrier after the fact
  • Willing and eager to throw herself into nearly any dangerous plan that poses risk of her being seriously hurt, but straight-laced about refusing to do anything that will definitely hurt even slightly, like getting a piercing or tattoo
