~Abilities~

 

 

She can read and write, ride a horse, and has excellent combat skills. She prefers to use her longsword, but can and will use any of the many weapons concealed about her body.

She can track most creatures in the forest, and with some concentration, also on other terrain.

Agile and strong she can climb most trees, and scale almost all walls and mountains.

~Magical Abilities~

 

She was trained in the combat form of her inherited magic, which can be released only in the heat of combat when cornered, enraged or desperate. To use this form of magic at any other time is a serious offense to the code she lives by.

With the use of this magic she is able to:

 

* Transform parts of her body to stone.

* Give of a Battle Cry that induces fear into anyone around her (enemies AND allies).

* Mentally transform into several animals, physically taking over their most prized abilities

 

This last form is the most difficult to achieve, and so far Apaltra has only been able to transform into a tiger, with the physical attribute being tiger-like claws on her hands and feet. This transformation cost her dearly at that time, and she decided that she doesn't like to use this ability anymore if she can help it.

 

Furthermore, Apaltra has the use of several abilities gained through her staff, and with the use of her staff only. With it's use, she can control and dominate any plant-like life-form and summon small creatures to her aid (nothing bigger than rodents).

The one drawback is: Anyone can use the staff to some extent, usually with various results, and almost always with devastating results. For reasons (which will be) explained elsewhere, Apaltra is the only one the staff really obeys.

~Items~

 

Her belt has several small bags hanging from it and, when traveling, she caries another bigger bag around her shoulder.

She wields a long sword specifically designed for her in a rather boring looking scabbard.

There are several kinds of daggers and knifes hidden about her person, the most important and most used however is her hunting knife, which hangs from her belt in a small scabbard.

In her hands she holds her staff.

Her most prized possession hangs from a string of leather around her neck, and is the seal of her Clan House. Since her country was eradicated, this is the last piece left.

~Physical Description~

 

Height: 1:78m

Dark brown eyes.

Brown hair going down to her waist, usually in a braid or warrior's tail.

Slender and agile but well-muscled.

Soft controlled voice, which is nonetheless very suited for giving commands.

Her eyes can scare the easily scared when she's doing battle. They light up with a white piercing glow which is an attribute of her magical combat training.

A fierce battle inflicted scar runs from her right outer eye corner down her cheek to her chin.

Rarely exposed are the many white scars running horizontally over her belly.

 

Mostly wears a brown tunic and pants with a figure hiding cloak and hood in Dark green.

~Personality~

 

She's friendly, but weary of strangers, and somewhat of a loner. Apaltra is very confident in her abilities, but every now and then she looses control and gets reckless.

 

At the moment her humor is rather dark, but she's quick to pick up in conversations and has a certain cheekyness and glinting of the eyes when she decides to be funny. If that happens, she likes to shock people outside her country by being down-right vulgar and direct. The barbarian way if you will.

 

She will quickly resort to battle should a situation turn critical, but hardly ever looses overview on what's going on around her unless she deliberatly taps into her magical abilities. When fighting with people she trusts, she will avoid doing this because she knows she could harm them.

 

Truth, Honor and Loyalty is what she was taught to serve. The only thing which would precede these is swearing an Oath of Revenge.

At the time she arrived at the Keep, she had done exactly this. However, she also believes never to be able to carry it out, and lives her life according to the three words above.

~Relationships~

 

"Family"

 

- Appy

 

Her younger sister who she didn't know she had for most of her life, but was reunited with a few years ago. Apaltra is very protective of her, but with the realisation that Appy could probably beat her in a fight, if not wisdom.

 

- Finx

 

A giant lion, the last of his race, who is always near her. They communicate via telephatie. There is a deep friendship between them, which even Appy wouldn't be able to break directly.

 

For interaction with other characters, see ~Personality~.

I am still in the middle of writing out the History of Appy/Ptraci, Apaltra and WildJoker, since it is intertwined and explains a lot about each individual. Also I think it'll be worth writing.
