Nivasi has dark skin, though her time in the sun can still be surmised by the freckles that dot her complexion. Her hair when not pulled back into a tight bun to keep it out of the way is ink black and falls to just around her chin. She is of fairly average height for her race at 5'10, and although lean comes in at a respectable 153 lbs, body showing the results of the rigours of her daily life. When she is hauling in a net, the muscles in her arms can clearly be seen. While no soldier or the like, she is physically capable.

She has the usual pointed ears of her race, which she does not bother to hide, and does shimmer slightly when caught in moonlight. Her eyes most often have a dominant purple hue, but it isn't uncommon to see the silver of high emotion flash through them.

Clothing wise she favours simple, tough cloths. Leather boots and breeches generally salt stained, undyed calico shirts. She is often found with a sash around her waist, which if she can afford it, is her nod to the finer things in life, usually dyed a bright colour, blues and purples being her favourite.

Nivasi does have a weakness for precious gems, particularly those of her preferred cooler colours, but has so far had no opportunity to acquire any.

Nivasi carries grief with her like a cloak of dignity. She is not dramatic, but she does come across as being removed and controlled. The only exception to this rule is when on her boat. There she feels free and.. happy does not encompass it. Joyous is closer.

She is not unfriendly precisely, but she is a woman alone operating out of a port that suffers from corruption. She is more likely to strike up conversation or friendships with women than men. The simple truth of this is that women are less of a physical threat to her. A woman is not going to outweigh her by as much, will not be as much stronger and cannot impregnate and abandon her. She does not hate men, she is simply realistic when weighing and evaluating the dangers around her, as any woman surrounded by sailors should be. when she does choose to speak to a person though, like most Biqaj, she will speak to them as though she's known them for years rather than moments.

She tends to be cautious and think things through, rarely acting without thinking. This is achieved through self-control and experience. Underneath her cool exterior, Nivasi actually feels things extremely strongly and had her life gone otherwise, might have wound up a hot-head, acting impulsively.

Internally, she is often silly, loving songs and legends, and making them up to tell herself during the long stretches of time she spends alone. Rarely do others get to see this side of her.

Navasi was born to a loving pair of Biqaj, who also made their living as fishermen. As any sailing family can tell you though, the sea is harsh even to those who love her. Biqaj may have made the best sailors, but they too could be taken unaware. When Nivasi was 16 Arcs, a sudden squall ripped apart the family ship. Though she didn't witness it, fighting for life as she was and seeing very little beside the grey heaving sea and the almost horizontal rain, her parents drowned. Both competent swimmers, the sea was too rough and they were too far from shore.

Nivasi stubbornly stayed above water, swimming for all she was worth, clinging to debris when she could, before it was ripped from her grasp. This went on for hours. Eventually the sea calmed, and she floated on her back, exhausted, no land in sight. It seemed she'd survived the storm only to wait for a quieter, more peaceful drowning. As she felt her consciousness slipping away, a pair of hands grabbed her, and began dragging her through the water. By the grace of a Mer, Nivasi was dumped fairly unceremoniously on shore.

For years after that, she could not step foot in the water, nor aboard a boat, terrified whenever she did, yet still looking longingly out to see. She barely eked by, cleaning fish and running other odd jobs, with no home of her own. Only recently has she ventured back into the water. Originally almost crippled by anxiety, she walked into the sea, facing her fears. Before long she was paddling about, though she is sorely out of practice. Having overcome this stumbling stone, she went and took out a loan for her own ship, which she christened the Bravi'os.

Now she lives upon her ship, fishing both to support herself, and to pay back the money she owes.

The Bravi'os - A one-masted sailing Sloop with a mainsail and jib rigged fore and aft. The sloop has a small hold and living quarters under the deck, enough room for a single bed, table, chair, storage chest, and shelf.

Usually docked in Cyrene Bay when not at sea.
