Small can sum up Val in the simplest sense, from her short frame to her compact features, she is easy to miss and often mistaken as a child. Given her wide smiles, constant need to move whether it be a simple tap of her feet or an exuberant wave of her arms, it is all the more difficult for her to seem her age. But the callouses on her olive skin, the deep laugh lines, and lean muscle give away her real age after more than a casual glance.

Not one for confinement of any kind her clothing is always loose and light, favoring flowing dresses and skirts with bare feet rather than workable pants and blouses. Colorblind her outfits rarely match, overly bright and shinning as if an infant has thrown something together then stolen her mothers jewelry, which is not untrue as Val has a great fondness for anything shiny and metal particularly if it makes noise.

Being the only daughter in her family and the youngest child Val can be spoiled, gullible, mulish. It is easy to see she was doted on, rarely told no and it was even rarer that she listened when she was, she is reckless with a strong streak of mischief and adventure. This often gets her in trouble, especially so when her nerves get the best of her, leaving Val fumbling in whatever mess she made, usually in tears.

That is not to say she doesn't have her good points. Val is optimistic and open-minded, friendly and chatty she loves drink a little more than is strictly healthy but it makes for interesting conversation. Unsurprisingly, no good can come of too much drink and that is one of the rare times when Val can be truly angered as most of the time she brushes off slights with no more than a shimmy. But once sober she is quick to forgive often having forgotten why she was angry.

Contrary to her childish nature and appearance Val is a very promiscuous being, prone to one night stands and semi-regretful drunken lays, she's never had a real relationship in her twenty-four arcs. This doesn't bother her much, as she prefers the company of her cat and cannot stand to be tied down by any one thing, she is comfortable in her solitude and brief friendships.

History/Thread List/Renown

Ava and Victor met when they were only ten arcs and were inseparable after. It was to no ones surprise that they were married the moment they came of age or that their first child came not a arc later. But the happiness was not forever as the birth left Ava weak for arcs after, and so it was surprising when nine arcs laters she was pregnant again. From then on, neighbors and friends would hear the arguments though they tried to mind their own and it was obvious they sided with Victor in believing Ava should not have the child. And it was into that chaos that Valerie Valencia was born and Ava Valencia died.

Having no idea what to do with the daughter he didn’t want but unable to give her up Victor often pawned the infant off on the neighbors who never seemed to mind. It was not until a young Valerie called another man father did he finally step in and realize what he’d nearly lost. The spitting image of her mother Victor denied her nothing, allowing Valerie to run rampant as children do, flitting between houses and playing with the test swords he made.

It was during these arcs that Valerie discovered buskers, much to her father and brothers chagrin. The young girl was enamored with the performers, the pretty woman, the handsome men, the costumes and glitter and laughter. As the trials went by she spent less and less time at the blacksmiths shop and more time in the streets. Stalking the performers every show, a tiny Val would shove herself as close as possible and be mesmerized no matter how many times she watched the same things. And her love would only grow the trial she was invited to dance with them, donning borrowed and mismatched skirts Val began to learn the art of dance.
By the age of twelve Val was a performer, begging her father to buy her the most garish dresses, under the impression that she looked “gorgeous”, as her brother liked to tell her. It was around this time that both men noticed Vals insistence that all her dresses were shades of yellow. Telling the child they were not would result in fits of tears as Val would insist she wasn’t lying and a few trials later she was taken to a physician to be pronounced sick with colorblindness. With no cure but assured that it would affect nothing but her ability to match her clothes the family left lighter hearted but such was not the case, Val couldn’t tell safe foods from not, often eating unripened or bad foods. After several accidents with food poisoning her brother taught her to test with smell, forcing a few bells a trial to make sure it was drilled into her head. This didn’t stop the girl from stealing unripened berries, having developed a taste for the sour fruits.
This was not the end of Valeries bad luck with her illness, though color blindness was not the only culprit in the fatal accident. Working on a large order Victor compelled Val to help in the shop, missing nearly all the dancers shows and leaving the sour tang of childish disappointment. In her haste to leave at the end of the trial and her inability to see the dying embers well she did not put out the pit properly before she fled to the streets. It was not until she ran home for the evening that she found her brother and father covered in burns, having fallen asleep when the house had caught fire. Though both men had made it out fine, not two trials later her brother succumbed to his smoke filled lungs and passed.

From there father and daughter played a game of blame and obligation until neither could stand it. By nineteen the two were hardly seen together unless they were screaming or working. Val was exhausted by it all, she couldn’t forgive herself, she knew her father tried but two deaths had her name on them and the weight of it all overwhelmed her. They never spoke of those they lost, the unspoken agreement to wipe away their names and with it the hurt, so when Victor had Val go to sell the only thing left of her brothers it sparked an argument like no other. In the end, rather than be hated, unable to smith properly with her fear of fire, the teen fled with the sword rather than buy the needed supplies.

Truthfully she had every intention of going back, she just needed to not feel so smothered. But the spray of salt air on the ship, the fading line of Ne’haers pier, the feeling of chains being ripped off her ankles…she couldn’t, wouldn’t go back. And even if she wanted to, she had no coin for passage back, as she would learn the moment her feet touched fresh soil.
Sailing with the Biqaj was new and exciting, trading dances and more for food she found a new source of happiness. But as a passenger her trials were long, leaving her with much too much time on her hands, getting underfoot and being threatened to be thrown off more than once. In an effort to keep her still they gave her odd jobs, which she took to happily enough, her favorite being the tracing of maps. It was precise work, absorbing all her focus even if she was fairly terrible at it and most of her maps were kept only by herself when she wasn’t paying off her paper usage.

It was with excitement and some relief that she stepped off the ship, a little surprised to find no coin left, no way home, nowhere to go, and no sailors to rely on. But she refused to ask for help, instead preforming where she could until she scrounged up enough money for meager lodgings. It would take over an arc for her to gather enough to supplies to pack up and leave again, unable to stay in a city that had lost its “newness” and only to find for all her efforts she was back on a ship. The very same ship she’d arrived in Desnind on.

This time the sailing was much smoother, she had her own animals to care for aboard the ship, she was less excited to be escaping something and more interested in the people she traveled with and the stories they told. In particular they spoke of Immortals, grand tales but two names in particular caught her ear and never left. Cassion and Ashan. Travel and freedom. Two things she could not do with out, two things she was so grateful for she had no doubt she’d do anything to keep them. The names and their meanings to her brought a certain sort of peace and comfort, a forgiveness for her inability to be still. Forgiveness for fleeing the mistakes of her past.

By the time she reached Rharne she never wanted to be on a boat again. She loved the water but seasickness in a horse was not something she wanted to experience again for some time. Which is precisely how she spent a few arcs wandering Rharne before feeling stifled by the tucked away city and heading out again, braving horse vomit and an irate cat she couldn't bare to leave behind.

Andaris she found, would suit her fine for the moment. Dropped off in the spread out lands she was free to roam between the city and forts, which made her heart sing because she was free to be in constant motion, chatting and traveling with those who could not keep there feet still either.

The dancer has no real home these days, and she avoids the confines of rented rooms unless the weather makes impossible to stay outside or she doesn't leave after a tryst. But Val does have a tent, simple and plain that she has a habit of dangling random items from to make her easy to spot though she only pitches in the cool and wet seasons. The small cart that house her belongings being dragged inside as a makeshift barrier and to keep things from being damaged by the elements. In the warmer seasons she curls up in her cart or spreads her bed roll on the ground, sometimes even opting to sleep directly on the ground if it isn't too hard or if she's too lazy to bother with her bedroll.

A simple scimitar, not well balanced with the beginnings of a name etched into the end of the blade. The entire sword is simple steel, steel handled, with leather wrapped around the handle for grip. It was Valeries brothers first sword made entirely by himself, a family decorative piece that was salvaged after the fire. Val kept it when she ran away and tries to incorporate it in her dances.

Relationships & Questionaires



Name: Malachi Valencia
Race: Human
Date of Birth/Date of Death: 10th of Zi’da, 686--76th of Zi'da, 707
Skills: Blades (Scimitar): 20
Smithing: 30
Seduction: 30
Teaching: 20
Appearance: A short, muscular man with a constant expression of amusement, and laughter in his eyes. His hands are worn and scarred for his age, his brow wrinkled with the labor of working in heat constantly but most would say this makes him more attractive. With tanned skinned, and thick brows framing even darker eyes. He wears a constant 5’oclock shadow or more because he’s never has the time to shave it often enough, with short hair to prevent it from catching in the fires.

He had a penchant for wearing layers and gloves, likely from being in the forge and with his boots in tow he was usually stomping around with something like intimidation. Save for the fact that he was usually accompanied by a bundled of mismatched energy.
Personality: Malachi was a hard-working young man with a bit of a temper but just as quick to smile and make amends. A bit of a mother hen, and fiercely protective of those he cared for in his wide circle of peers and family. Very mischievous as a child, when he grew into more of a man he was often found cracking jokes to pass the time working though not always appropriate with time or place. He was known for being a terrible flirt, which is likely where Val picked up on it from.
Relationship to PC: Brother--Approval Link
Anything Else: Died in a fire Val basically caused, taught her most of what she knows with blades, cannot be played after his death




Name: Door
Age: 5arcs
Breed: Fluffy cat
Looks: Tan and white with black and gray stripes, slate blue eyes, and in Vals opinion the cutest tufts of white ear hair. Door weighs about 15lbs but looks but heavier with her fluffy coat and bushy tail.
Personality: Adventurous, clingy, avid hunter, energetic and curious
Relationship to Val: Hunting companion
History: Door and Val met while she was in Rharne, the cat taking shelter in her tent and often stealing any fish Val managed to catch in her net. They kept each other company and when Val was short of food the cat would often bring her small dead birds and rodents to eat, even if Val preferred to not eat them at all. It seemed Door had chosen Val, leaving for shorter and shorter periods of time until it seemed she was never far from her side. Her name was given to her by Val for her habit of sleeping in the tents doorway.
Name: Shoes
Age: 9arcs
Breed: Oakleigh Destrier Gelding
Looks: Black with a gray face and a slight spots along his back
Personality: Placid, loyal, hard-working, and constantly hunting for snacks
Relationship to Val: Mount
History: Shoes and Val met while she was in Desnind looking to purchase a mount for travel, not used to riding and unfamiliar with what to get a local recommended Shoes to her. At first meet Val was terrified of the large animal but Shoes kept calm, sniffing and generally keep his distance until Val was ready to try and ride, from then on he was a constant companion, carrying her small cart. His name comes from when he almost ate her shoe looking for snacks.

Questionnaire 1

Part 1: The Basics
What is your full name? My full name is Valerie Avery Valencia but I prefer to be called Val, wouldn't you?

Where and when were you born? Ne'haer, and its rude to ask a girls age!

Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.) Victor told me mama was a sculptor, she helped him make molds for his swords and came up with the designs for the shop. Mamas name was Ava, I don't think she had a middle name but Victor says she was a lot like me but I think I'm more like him. He is my father.

Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like? I did...can we go to the next question?

Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people. In Andaris for now, it has such an open space and I haven't seen all the forts! Do Door and Shoes count as people?

What is your occupation? A dancer, look!

Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks. You're looking at me, I don't think I could describe me as well as you right now.

To which social class do you belong? Poor, but I don't mind, I get to travel and you can't travel with too many things.

Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? I've got color sickness, thats what the physician called it. Do you see that flower? What color is it? Well to me thats yellow, a pale yellow but its I'm not lying!

Are you right- or left-handed? Both! But I use my left more frequently.

What does your voice sound like? I'm not sure, I hear it all the time so I can't tell. Whats it sound like to you? A mouse?! Well, at least I'm a friendly mouse then.

What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?

What do you have in your pockets? Nothing, my skirts don't have pockets or everything would fall out when I twirl!

Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? Of course I do! Let's see...I talk a lot, I snore, I'm always knocking things over when I talk, Victor used to go crazy when I'd tap my feet when I sit, I hum a lot, I'm sure theres more but I can't think of them all right now.

Part 2: Growing Up
How would you describe your childhood in general? It was great! I had two dads for awhile, then it was just Victor and all the aunties lived near us. I think me and all their kids played together but I was always running off by myself. It was loud and bright, seems like forever ago.

What is your earliest memory?

How much schooling have you had? Victor didn't believe in school, said I'd learn what I need at home. Never thought of going before, now that you mention it.

Did you enjoy school?

Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? Everywhere, learn something new everyday. The street performers taught me a lot, the Biqaj when I sailed, Victor did too...I guess.

While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. Anna! She's great, always smiling and laughing, she had all these pretty dresses and they made so much noise! I could always hear her before I seen her, I wanted to look just like her when I grew up but I never did get that tall...or have that figure but she taught me most of what I know.

While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? We're family, we got on like family does.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A dancer, of course!

As a child, what were your favorite activities? Whatever caught my eye but I usually did a lot of dancing or sword fighting with my br--whats the next question?

As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?

As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like?

When and with whom was your first kiss?

Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?

If you are a supernatural being (i.e. mage, werewolf, vampire), tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. If you are just a normal human, describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today.
