Reflection
"Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly." ~ Richard Bach

Like water, taken away from the sea, shifting to fit the shape of it's container, Zephy has shifted to form that of a human. Silken tresses casscade down her slender spine in a rainbow of pastel blues and lavender. Shorter layers feather her oval face, with checkbones chisled as if in marble. Almond eyes contain the cerulean well of the deeper ocean within; often expressive and forever cast downward. Broad shouldered but willowy, her athletic form moddestly hidden beneath baggy dresses or tops that float around her like whisps in the wind.

"Water is powerful. It can wash away earth, put out fire, and even destroy iron. Water can carve its way through stone. And when trapped, water makes a new path." ~ Arthur Golden

No river bed is left to dry as the water flows through each and every intricacy. As such, Zephy is notoriously perceptive of nuances and subtleties in the environment and those around her. A deep thinker, her mind racing to unravel silent mysteries, she can appear shy or disinterested. Picking up on the finer details means she has a good sense in sussing out people and situations. However, obsessing over every detail can lead to creating problems where they don't exist, making life more complicated than it need be.

Just like the swaying sea, Zephy can sometimes be a bit wishy-washy. Going along with the current of life she can be easily distracted and swept away from where she intends to be. Often letting her emotions and heart lead the way, rational thinking does not often cross her mind.

Distrustful of others and private, Zephy has many walls guarding her heart and finds making meaningful connections difficult. This conflicts with her inherent lust for inclusion, family and caring for others. Especially fearful of discovery and afraid of how others will perceive her shifting nature, Zephy has learned to find some solace in living a guarded life.

History

Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:09 pm

Family
Mother
Name: Leilani
Race: Yludih
BirthTrial: 8th Cylus 691st Arc
Status: Memory NPC
Last Known Location: Athart
Trial of Death: 13th Ymiden 720
Skills: Medicine 30, Poisons 20, Gardening 20, Business 15, Research 15

Personality:
Leilani is young spirited and passionate. Though over zealously cautious, often verging on paranoia, she tried to keep the horrors of the world at bay from obscuring her daughter's view of the world. She remembers her travels in her younger days and still believes the other races of Idalos bloom beautifully. She passionately believes there will be a day that the Yludih will not be feared, but accepted into society.

History:
Leilani was originally born in the form of a Sev'ryn. In the southern lands was where she gained most of her knowledge of herbs and botany. Her parents, both Yludih, remained hidden and settled near Desnind running their own apothecary. To further support her mirage of being a Sev'r, Leilani set off on her 'journey to discover her familiar' and lavished in the adventure and discovery of new cultures and races. She spent years travelling across Idalos, toying with different persona's and shifting herself into various races she came into contact with. There was no sign of her returning home. However, when she received a letter of both of her parent's deaths, their murders, Leilani rushed home.
Their shop had been ransacked, everything was in ruin. Leilani would have been next if not for Mishal. A group of bandits had figured out Leilani's parent's secret identities and discovered how to eradicate them. Mishal, another Yludih lurking in the area spirited Leilani away before the bandits could come back and discover her secret as well. Her kept her safe as they travelled far from the South. Falling in love and sharing their essence. Shortly after Zephy was born however, Leilani parted from Mishal. Their views on the other races of Idalos differed. Leilani was happy to be apart of their world and relished in their differences. Mishal on the other hand, viewed the Yludih as the superior race and was quite radical with his ideals.
Forever fearful for the safety of her daughter after what had happened to her parents, Leilani knew settling in one place would be a mistake and so took her parents apothecary business on the road, disguising herself as human as so to never become suspect.

Memories

Pre-Creation



Arc 705

The melding of two souls birthed Zephy in the town of Yaralon. Her mother a care giver and herbalist; her father forever a mystery. Zephy often spent her nights daydreaming of his exploits - was he a farmer, a doctor, an adventurist, a pirate?! She was to never know. For as long as she can remember it has been her and her mother, side by side. Any time Zephy pushed for more about her father, her mother simply said they separated on differences of values and ideals, whatever that meant. Few others of note ever lasted in her life; moving almost constantly Zephy always welcomed a new city, village, or new culture to explore. As they shuffled about the world, Zephy was never able to pick up any more than a few words here and there in many other languages other than common, besides that of Xantha. The language seemed to stick the easiest in her mind, she loved how it rolled in her mouth and with her mother often seeking out Sev'ryn merchants for their herbs and plants for her trade, it was the only other language Zephy really came in contact with.

Living on the road most of her life, Zephy practically grew up in the back of the old cart, owning little more than the clothes on her back, yet never yearning for more. It was sometimes a tough life for a youngster to be thrust into living among the wilderness, but her mother was always patiently coaching her how to scavenge and forage. As a rule though they almost always sought refuge at night behind the security of the walls of society. From a youngling, she helped her mother most days running her market stall, selling dried herbs and teas. Zephy was in charge of hauling goods crates from the cart, counting merchandise and most importantly, caring for the small cache of herbal plants that her mother grew in pots and took with them on the road. It wasn't easy caring for soil and plants trapped in boxes, but it was Zephy's job while her mother dealt with the trickier aspect of the business, which was practically everything else. It wasn't a lucrative endeavour but it kept them fed enough and the cart in good order to roll into the next town. On special occasions such as birthtrials, Zephy and her mother would sleep in an inn and spend the next day exploring the architectural and cultural aspects of whatever piece of Idalos they were in. Those memories Zephy treasures the most. So many wonders in the world of Idalos.

Her mother never told her why they always moved around, never settling in one place for more than an arc, and yet Zephy never thought to ask. Her mother was a careful creature, paranoid and distrustful of anyone who wished to get close and these attributes Zephy adopted, for she knew her mother must be this way for a good reason.


Arc 715

The older Zephy grew, the more her mother divulged her knowledge of medicinal herbs and how to brew them, discovering her mother had been documenting her research over the years in a journal. With her mother's journal almost always in hand, detailed drawings of favourable plants to keep her right, Zephy was soon allowed to roam the forests and wilds to search for their stock for the teas to sell.


Arc 719

This arc Zephy remembers vividly. This was the arc her mother revealed who she truly was - what she truly was and showed her the way into the Uleuda. Mind reeling, it took trials for her to fully grasp what the Yludih were, what she was. It took trials of her mother trying to teach Zephy to calm her mind enough to explore her true being. She could only master simple changes, like her hair; what once was golden from birth now a rainbow of colours, an expression of her inner self. But she now felt that there was a larger family out there, in the Uleuda, waiting for her. It was no longer just the two of them.

Every evening, over their campfire meal, Zephy would quiz her mother passionately, barely letting one question finish before spouting out another one. Now her nights were spent delving into the Uleuda, where she was beginning to undergo her education to control her power and practice ways of subtly and subterfuge to keep her identity a secret. Her mother finally embellished the terrifying cause for her paranoia and nomadic lifestyle - that the Yludih are widely feared for their shapeshifting nature and in the past many had been hunted down. Zephy now looked upon the world of Idalos with fear and trepidation. "No-one can ever know who you truly are" The finality of her mother's words resonate deep within her, even still.


Arc 720

Yet still their lives continued, the world had not changed, though Zephy and her perception of it had. Zephy and her mother continued to ply their trade where they could. Winding their way across the eastern continent, the pair made their way to Athart. Aware that this city was rife with slavery, her mother warned that they dare not linger. It was to be a simple resupply before heading back up the coast. Though, it was not to be.

Her mother had gone to seek out merchants on the docks for some rarer herbs, Zephy was huddled in the back of their cart, practicing simple changes to her skin colour and hair. Under the tarped roof, she believed to be concealed and safe from view. This was not so. They were discovered. They fled.

As fast as their horses could draw the cart, their home and livelihood, they escaped the gates of Athart. Her mother knew that Yludih were sought after, many would use their shifting abilities for their own gains - this she warned Zephy. For a couple breaks it appeared that no one pursued. Zephy released the breath she had held since leaving the city! Alas, one's guard should never be truly lowered, not when one is Yludih.

Suddenly their cart was highjacked on the road by bandits. Zephy's mother was dragged from the cart in the fray as the brigands attempted to board. The horses would not stop. Zephy couldn't control them, couldn't stop them. She screamed for her mother, eyes streaming, her voice coarse. The last words of her mother were to not stop, run!

Night fell and Zephy and the cart were miles ahead. The bandits had given up the chase, though Zephy didn't know why. She spurred the horses off the road and into the thick brush. She headed back on foot in search of her mother. She was gone.

Devastated and alone, she had nowhere to go. After breaks of crying in despair and searching the Uleuda for any sign of her mother's essence, Zephy finally pulled herself together and rummaged through the cart. She found her mother's journal and sifted through the pages. In amongst the herbal remedies, Zephy had once found a scrap piece of paper, where was it?! There! All that was written on the note was Desnind and a rough sketch of a man. Zephy had suspected before that this might be her father. She was just waiting for her mother to broach the subject when she was ready.

Her only hope was to get help and return to find her mother. Save for a few precious items and necessities in a bag and the clothes on her skin, Zephy sold the cart with everything in it, along with the horses for a seafare to Desnind across the waters. All that her mother had worked for, their home, it was gone. All of it.

Zephy has now arrived in Desnind and must begin the search for a man she doesn't even know...
