character bio {Character Bio} Mailea Vorkrunne-Windamere

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Basics 

Name:  Mailea Kiara Vorkrunne-Windamere.

Name Meaning: Mailea means lustful in elven. Kiara means dark.

Nickname: Mai

Date of Birth (& age):  16. Born under the sign of the Giant on the cusp of (()).

Place of Birth: Windamere Manor

Gender:  Female

Species/Racial Origin: Half-Elf dhampir 

Mother: Ryaj Vorkrunne. Mai has spent most of her life away from her mother. All she had of her mother was stories that her father told her. Recently she reconnected her Ryaj. She is looking forward both getting to know her mother. 

Father: Lord Devonal Windamere. Mai is knows that her father isn’t a good man; she knows that he can be very wicked. He has always been very open and loving towards her. Others may see Lord Devonal as either a figure to lust after or blight upon mankind, but to her he is just Father. He is the one that has seen to her needs and education. He’s protected her and taken care of her. He is the one that bought her first bra, taught her how to do her make up, and to walk in heels. He is someone she looks up to and respects even though she also knows he is a killer that can be both sadistic and lusty.  

Siblings: Mai was only raised with one of her siblings. She has a half-brother named Darcey. It is a joke  to refer to the pair as pseudo-twins because they were born within an hour of each other.  Mai and Darcey’s relationship is complicated. They love each other, but at the same time have grown up with a fierce sibling rivalry. They bicker and their arguing has occasionally become physically violent. He can be an annoyance to her and she will gripe about him. However, they do share a close bond and will team up to defend each other if anyone else tries to mess with the other of the pair.

She has several other half-siblings from both her mother and her father that she has yet to meet.

Other: Ipp – Her relationship with her father’s lover has always been an awkward one. On one hand Ipp has always been kind to her and she views him almost like an uncle. He does love her in his own way, but he’s always been a little skittish and she feels like there is something about him that is almost childlike. She also wonders how much there is about him that she doesn’t know. 

Social Class: Mai is technically of a noble bloodline. Her father is a Lord and claims her as legitimate; however, due to her dhampir nature, he chose to raise her away from people.  She was raised in mountains herding sheep. Her father has made sure she has been taught etiquette and proper court protocol, but she has not had a chance to use it.

 Community Status: A stranger and newcomer. She is not well known, but people are starting to recognize her around the Velia area

Relationship Status: Single. 

Friends: She hasn’t made any friends as of yet, but is in the process of making a few.

 Pets: Hawk named Ethir, the elven word for spy.

 

Physical Description

Height:  6'0

Weight:  145                

Hair: Mai’s hair is the color of wild red roses and drops down to about mid-waist. It is mostly straight with a slight wave to it. The wave increases when it gets wet or the weather is humid.  It isn’t unusually for her to wear her hair pulled up into a pony tail to keep it out of her way.

Eyes: Ruby Red

Limb Dexterity:  Dexterously ambidextrous

Piercings:  both ears thrice, but she doesn't always have earrings in all three holes.

Tattoos: None

Detailed Physical Description: Mai is tall for her age and her body is starting to take on a more buxom appearance. Her hips are widening and her chest filling out. One day she may have the classic hourglass figure, but at the moment she still has some of the lanky awkwardness of youth about limbs and body. Mai is not overly muscular, but growing up in the mountains has left her fit and toned. Over all, she appears healthy. She doesn’t have any excess weight, but it is also clear that she has been well fed.  

Her face, much like her body, is also still in transition between childhood and adulthood. Mai, like much dhampir is rather lovely to look upon.  Her lips are starting to appear lush and her face is shapely. However, her pale completion makes the strange redness of her irises stand out and when she smiles she hasn’t completely mastered the ability to hide that her canines are slight more sharp and pointed than they should be. 

She does work hard and is often dirty and sweaty from trying to prove herself and earn her keep. With that being said, she has grown up liking to stay as clean as she can. At the end of the day it isn’t unusual to find her bathing in the river before she finds a place to sleep for the night. Her father has given her some lye soap that smells like lavender and jasmine, so she often has a faint smell of flowers about her. 

would regret cutting it. When it is pulled up her hair is pulled back it is easier to see the slight points of her half-elven ears. 

Typical Clothing/Equipment:  Mai has grown up dressing for the weather and prefers to wear something comfortable and cool that she can move in. She finds pants more practical, but is getting to the stage of her life where she is starting to want to dress up, wear a little make up, and put on jewelry.

Likes:  Seaside cliffs and sandy beaches – Cliffs that look out over the water remind her of where she grew up. She loves the way that the roll of the waves can calm her and ‘sing’ her to sleep. Mai likes to walk along sandy beaches. It feels good to let sand squish between her toes and the waves roll in over the top of her feet. 

Climbing – Mai has been climbing almost since before she could walk. It is second nature and she will climb anything she is able: Trees, cliffs, buildings, etc. 

Books – Most of what Mai knows about life and people is from what she’s read in books. Her father made sure to give her a proper education even though he kept her isolated. Mai would await new books with great excitement every time her father and Darcey went into town to sell wool. She will enthusiastically read just about whatever is given to her. Books have always been her escape and way she could let her mind go on journeys. 

Flirting – She isn’t always good at flirting, but she does enjoy being a flirt. It isn’t always a serious endeavor for her; in fact it is usually an act of pure fun.  Mai will flirt with just about anybody regardless of race, sexual identity, or psychical appearance, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s attracted to them. 

Blood – Mai has a love hate relationship with blood. It fascinates her and she craves it. She thinks that blood is the loveliest shade of scarlet. It is something she views as the bridge between life and death. Blood can be beautiful or horrid and it is often both simultaneously. However, she hates that blood has such a hold on her. She has learned to respect both blood and death, just as much as she respects the sanctity of life. 

 

Dislikes:  Snakes – Something about them sets off her danger sense. She’s well aware that not all of them are venomous or dangerous, but they still make her skin crawl. 

Weasels – They are just creepy. They are like snakes with fur and legs. She loves most animals, but weasels are not on that list. Part of it dates back to when she was a toddler and one of them snapped at her while she was playing in the field where Ipp was letting the sheep graze. 

Being called ‘Kid’ – She’s between stages and is striving to behave more mature and adult. Being called a child or ‘kid’ feels demeaning towards her efforts. 

Garlic – It isn’t like garlic will actually hurt her, but it has a strong enough smell that it gives her a slight head ache and makes her stomach turn. She will eat it if it is cooked enough to have the flavor blend with the rest of the dish, but otherwise she’d rather avoid it. 

Losing control – It is a frightening sensation to know that there is something inside of you that could take ahold of you at any moment. Many adults would have trouble dealing with the inner struggle Mai faces every day. She likes to stay in her clear mind and when her blood lust takes control she feels like her mind and body are betraying her. It is always something that makes her feel shaken and confused when she regains her ability to think logically. 

BloodSee both blood and losing control above

 

 Goals/Ambitions:  At the moment she doesn’t really have many goals or ambitions. Mai only really wants three things at of life: to gain control over her blood lust, to find a place in the world where she fits, and to continue reading and learning all she can about the world. 

 

Strengths: Improved senses – Mai was born with improved senses. Her hearing is acute, and she’s learned increase it more and focus on listening when she closes off her eyes. Her sense of taste and smell are also greatly heightened. Her sense of sight is strong in the dark and in dim light. 

Highly intelligent - Mai has always been observant and a quick learner. She knows to wait, watch, and question what she witnesses. Knowledge is something she desires to continue to accumulate and she is aware that she will never know everything. It is no secret to her that she is ignorant to many secrets of the world.  

 

Weaknesses: Sunlight – It will not kill her if she goes out during the day and she often does. However, bright lights are hard on her sensitive and keen vision. Particularly sunny days or bright glares off of water, snow, etc. can give her a headache. She also sunburns easily and it annoys her because she really does like to lay out on the beach in the warmth of the sun.

Bright lights – Mai won’t avoid going out into the light, but her eyes are light sensitive and bright are hard for her to take. It isn’t unusual for her to get a headache from being exposed to bright lights for too long. 

Bloodlust – She has a hunger she must feed and can’t always control. Mai will start to grow both physically and mentally weaker after half a week without blood and the desire to feed will slowly start to take over after a week. She will also sometimes lose control of her bloodlust when she gets overly excited. In the past it has left her coming to her senses cover in blood with a dead body. It is a part of her nature that she knows makes her stronger, but is also dangerous for both herself and others. 

Fears: Being considered a monster – Mai is different than most girls and her father has made sure she knows how dangerous this can be for her. All her life she has grown up knowing that at any moment someone could decide she doesn’t deserve to live because of what she happens to be instead of who she is trying to be.  She is honest with herself and knows that being a dhampir plays into how her personality has turned out, but also feels there is more to her than just that. Her mother told her to hide what she is from others and not to let them know. Her nature is a subject she is reluctant to bring up, but will discuss if needed.

 

Quirks:

-          Will people watch and often this leads to unconscious (or sometimes even conscious) eavesdropping.

-           Will try to recite all the constellations and the named stars that are in each of them when she has insomnia.

-          Collects books.

-          Fidgets or chews on her lip when nervous.

-          Prefers a pescatarian diet, but will eat other meat on occasion.

-          Prefers to be clean. Bathing every day would be ideal, but is a must at least a few times a week.

-          Is extremely flexible.

-          Loves physical contact but usually won’t usually initiate it.

-          Likes to sleep next to someone, even if it is platonic.

-           Heavy sleeper

-          Speaks in a careful, delicate, even tone and will try to match whatever dialect the person she is speaking to is using.

-          Likes riddles.

-          Can’t resist helping an animal in distress. 

 

Sexuality:  She’s young enough to still be exploring this, but she’s pretty sure that it is more about personality for her instead of what genitals a person was or wasn’t born with.

 

 Education: Even though she grew up in a rural setting, Mai’s father made sure to tutor in every subject that would fit her rank as a lady of court. He educated her in etiquette and made sure she was fluent in different language and dialects in case she needed to be diplomatic. He made her study histories to make sure she understood both the art of war, the value of peace, and the culture and state of the war. He taught her logic, philosophy, and reasoning. He instructed her in arithmetic so she could keep family account books up to date. She leaned about astronomy, herbalism, animal husbandry, and anatomy. He brought home literature for her read and gave her books on religion.

He also taught her how to use her head: to wait, to watch, to listen. He told her that not everything she’d need to learn would come from the pages of books. She’d need to be able to gain information from the world around her. She’d need to be adaptable and think on her feet.

In short, Mai’s short life has been filled with a well-rounded education and she is eager to keep learning more.

 

 Languages: Can recognize and understand the Balenosian, Calpheonian, Mediahian, Serendian, and Valencian dialects. She is fluent in Elven.

 

 Memberships:  She is currently employed to do odd jobs by Ravens of War AND Ireul's apprentice. 

Other: Mai's Diary
