Garden of Lost Echoes

Garden of Lost Echoes
Image
Deep in the heart of the Sweetwine Woods lays a clearing. That clearing has existed as long as the forest has. Within that clearing is a strangely twisted tree. It is an ancient tree; it is said that it is the very first tree to grow in the Sweetwine Woods, and that many of the other trees in the forest were born of its seeds. But no one knows for certain if this is true or not because this tree never blooms, nor does it grow any leaves. Even in the height of Ashan, it is as stark as all trees are in Cylus. Even so, there is a regal beauty in that tree, and those who see it for themselves swear that it is intelligent and that it watches over all who come into its clearing.

In early Ashan of 695, Azira lost her mother and infant son in a devastating house fire. Devastated by their loss, she was overcome by her grief. She spent much of her time wandering aimlessly in the Sweetwine Woods in the hopes of finding some animal that might find her a suitable meal and end her suffering. Instead, she found the clearing, and the tree that lives there. Something about the beauty of the tree gave her comfort. Azira carefully cleared away the debris and planted flowers, turning the clearing into a hauntingly beautiful garden. That garden still exists totrial, and has flourished under Azira's care over the arcs.

It is said that if one is quiet, you can hear the voices of those you have lost echoed in the wind that always seemed to blow through the garden. Many believe that the tree watches over those that have been lost. Some believe that if a woman who has lost someone they care about deeply were to become pregnant in that garden, the soul of their lost loved one would find a new home in the unborn child and be born again. It is also believed that if a woman who hasn't experienced such a loss were to become pregnant in that garden, the soul of one of the others who were lost would find a new home in the unborn child and be born again.

NPC Name

Image
Name: Azira Neis
Race: 1/2 Sev'ryn, 1/2 Biqaj
Age: 99th Ashan 685
Title: Wood carver
Skills: Appraisal: 50, Basket Weaving: 35, Caregiving: 30, Gardening: 40, Jewelry Crafting: 50, Painting: 50 Teaching: 50, Woodworking: 90
Other Information: Azira is the only daughter of a well known wood carver. Now that he is getting on in arcs, she and her brother have inherited the shop that has been passed down in their family for generations. Azira follows in her father's footsteps in that she is far better at carving wood than in running a shop. So she focuses on what she does best for the most part. Her specialty is making wooden beads, and creating all sorts of things with them. She is also quite skilled in judging the quality both of various types of wood, and the finished products made out of them. When someone shows a genuine interest in her craft, she is happy to teach them everything she knows in the hopes that the skills she was taught will never die out. She will also hold woodworking classes when she has the time as an additional source of income for the shop.

When her mother, younger sister, and infant son died in a devastating house fire many arcs ago, she was devastated. Her depression left her unable to work the wood that she loved so much, and left her with little will to live. She spent much of her time wandering the Sweetwine Woods aimlessly hoping that some animal might find her a suitable meal and end her suffering. That changed one trial when she found a mysterious clearing where a strangely twisted tree stood. She continued to return to this clearing, finding a measure of peace there. In all the times she returned to that clearing, the tree never sprouted any leaves. Despite that, it was very much alive and healthy. There was a beauty in that stubborn old tree that defied explanation. After a while, Azira decided to create a memorial for her lost loved ones in that clearing. Over time, she cleared away debris and planted flowers, turning the clearing into a hauntingly beautiful garden. The process of creating the memorial eased her grief and she regained her ability to work with wood once more. When she was finished, she began hearing the voices of her lost loved ones echoed in the wind that always seemed to blow through the garden. She continues to maintain the garden to this trial, and can often be found there when she isn't busy at the shop.

Azira is a member of the Guild because she has inherited his beliefs as well as his skills when it comes to working with wood.

This NPC is free to use within the shop she works at, and the memorial she created.
