Appearance

Ethelind is an eídisi of pale, periwinkle skin with a very faint tint of baby blue and jagged marks that run across her left forearm and diagonally from right to left on her collar bone. She is of a slender, petite, and shorter build at 5' 11" and 141 lbs, with semi-long and thin legs, as well as arms. Ethelind also has longer fingers that are capable of delicate maneuvers when it comes to tools or careful tasks. Despite her slim and supposedly dainty physique, Ethelind also packs an average amount of muscle that gives faint outlines under her skin. With the willowy body of hers, she lacks what people would consider a "womanly form". Her breasts and buttocks are relatively flat, but her waist still retains a decent curve to give her a little of that feminine look. Ethelind's hair is a darker shade of a lavender color that gradually fades near the tips to a rich, ocean blue that compliments her skin complexion and smaller, white eyes. What makes Ethelind a truly beautiful specimen is not only how her skin seems to glow in moonlight, or the lissome figure, but her facial features. Her eyes are smaller, but gleam a brilliant, creamy white so she appears blind. The chiseled jawline and face she has is of a semi-squarish shape, but end in delicate points to compliment her defined cheekbones and faint dimples. Her lips are fairly thin, and a slightly bluer tint than her skin, and her nose is of a proportionate, cute shape to make her appearance more attractive.

Attire is the second aspect of her appearance that defines her style. Usually, Ethelind's wardrobe consists of a white, short-sleeved shirt and a black blazer, all above long, black pants that are all neatly pressed. However, this will vary on a daily basis when she doesn't choose to wear such professional clothing and when her preference in color may shift. However, the business-like attire that was already described is something similar to a signature outfit of a sort.
Personality

Ethelind is a very cold, calculating, and arrogant person at first glance. Frankly, you wouldn't really be wrong. Everything that includes skill of any sort will automatically become a passion for her, more specifically if it pertains to mental skill. By heart, Ethelind is a very, very competitive person, even among her own people. No matter what, she has subconsciously set perfect standards for herself. However, her perfectionism that fuels her ambition is also a major downfall. See, Ethelind is amazing with self-pity even though she could hardly care about the well-being of others. If she fails to meet her incredibly high level goals of herself, loathing quickly follows with a sense of inferiority. Despite the depression, however, this makes her even more determined, aggressively so, to complete whatever task she failed at. With her lower, serious voice that is silky, smooth, and yet thundering, she isn't shy about what she wants. If she desires something, she will get it no matter what she has to do. She is absolutely crazed about success and gaining more knowledge by the second. She will gladly neglect her own needs if it means she will be able to increase her intelligence by any means possible. So desperate is she that she has become one of the most devoted followers of Yvithia yet. She prays every single day, multiple times, mind you. Any religious event that concerns Yvithia, Ethelind will be there to try and appease her. She doesn't care how low she has to go. She simply wants to know everything. It's an impossible goal to reach, but Ethelind doesn't let that cursed word get in her way, oh no. Whether it be the most touchy subject, a dire situation, or any scenario you could possibly think of, Ethelind won't care. Her only lust is for knowledge. She could care less about anything else. Well, except maybe music. Goodness does she love musical events with a passion almost as great as her love for intelligence.
History

Ethelind was born to two intelligent linguists of Viden with an older brother to account for as well. Ethelind always thought of herself as quite smart, and she would always put herself above others in fits of egotism. However, her brother always seemed to put her in her place, and she despised it. Eventually, she grew accustomed to her own self-pity and she became a fairly depresses individual. So tired was her brother of her arrogant behavior that he began to put her down frequently to keep her ever-growing ego in check. The parents tried to discourage this, but her brother was quite the relentless individual. However, her kind of depression made her far more determined to surpass her brother with every fit she had. She wanted to win.

So Ethelind set out on a sort of quest of her own. She did this while staying within the Viden city limits, of course, as it was a mental expedition rather than a physical one. Knowledge was the goal of this quest. She would do absolutely whatever it took to become more intelligent as an individual to best her brother. Ethelind went through many, many ordeals. Once she broke into a closed church just to pray to Yvithia for a blessing, and she was even kicked out of a library for practically living there. Throughout her frantic journey to become wiser and more knowledgeable, she became one of the most devout followers of Yvithia yet. If she could win the Immortal's favor, she'd be blessed with even more intelligence! Right? And so, with the immense determination that went known through Viden's community. Eventually, even the Immortal of intelligence herself took an interest in Ethelind's devoutness in worship and knowledge. That was something that truly pleased her.

Little did Ethelind know she was being watched. The shocked community of the area around her were appalled by her progress and almost near-insanity just to gain the next bit of information after another. Ethelind wasted no time. But even more than that, she had no clue Yvithia had actully heard her prayers. Every once in awhile, Ethelind would recieve a little gift. A perfect score on a hard test, the will to study for hours on end when she thought she could endure no more. What was happening to Ethelind was identified as divine intervention in her life from Yvithia. And alas, Ethelind happened to not be wrong about it. After awhile, the subtle gifts stopped coming. Dismayed, Ethelind believed she had done something to displease the Immortal, so she began praying with even more vigor.

For a couple of weeks, nothing happened at all. But then, it was the time to actually gaze upon the Immortal with her own eyes. As she was walking up one of the northern mountains to find a place to meditate so she could organize recently gained knowledge, she happened upon a traveler. The traveler simply watched Ethelind as if she had been waiting the entire day for her. Even more suspicious was the fact she was sitting down directly where Ethelind meditated. It was Yvithia. She knew this by her appearance. In history books, the depictions of Yvithia were exactly the same as the face right in front of her very own eyes. Shocked, Ethelind could only stare in awe and drop the her knees as a sign of respect. But Yvithia told her to rise. Ethelind was informed that Yvithia had been keeping an eye on her incredible progree for quite some time now. And she was ready to bestow the ultimate gift upon Ethelind for her devout ways to Yvithia and the training of her intelligence. There was a brief brush of Yvithia's hand across Ethelind's right eye, and there it was. The Blessing of Yvithia, Xypha Never had Ethelind been so happy in all of her life. But before she could offer words of gratitude, Yvithia vanished with a last smile of approval. The deal was done. There was no time for meditation that day. She needed to go home! To process all of what had just happened.

Ever since that incident of Yvithia's approval, Ethelind has been working nonstop in her studies to please her revered Immortal. With that seal, Ethelind refused to let Yvithia down with failure or laziness. Now is the time for Ethelind to prove herself more than just a favored prodigy. She wanted to become more to Yvithia, to earn greater blessings. One day, her brother would see her true greatness. For now she simply travels occasionally to study linguistics and culture, and then stays at home often to review her notes to retain said information. She one day hopes to become a revered follower of Yvithia, valued to her community and to the Immortal herself.

Eventually, however, the cold of Viden began to sicken Ethelind. Sicker and sicker she became, until she knew she needed to leave the bitter cold of the city. She decided to leave to Etzos in Central Idalos with one last prayer at Yvithia's shrine. Of course, Ethelind was aware of the lifestyles of Etzos, so she would be careful to only pray in private. Besides, she usually just prayed in thought. This way, she would also be able to study the lifestyles of humans in an anti-religious area. This would allow more freedom in their daytime lives, so that meant she could observe more of their activity. She also already knew some of the common language, so hopefully she'd be able to learn more while being immersed in the community. And so she went. On top of this, Etzos was know for its drug and theft trade, and Ethelind was interested in getting closer to this community to get her more items for more immoral experiments and such.
