I'm a 5'7” elf. My weight is none of your business. I have long black hair and blue eyes, no distinguishing marks. I'm currently in possession of a dark green cloak one of my mentors gave me to help hide me in the wilderness, and that cloak covers my brown travel robes

14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?
My mentors always told me I was too curious, and ask too many questions. Is it wrong to question the world?

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general?
Pretty normal for where I grew up. All elven children on the island are put through rigorous studies. As we come of age, we are sent out to.. camp away from home to learn more about our surroundings and get in touch with the elements

16. What is your earliest memory?
Watching the sun rise on the most beautiful beach on the island

17. How much schooling have you had?
… a lot

18. Did you enjoy school?
I loved it! Except I felt like I wasn't learning all that I could

19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities?
My mentor Ralnor Faranni taught me all about the wonders of the elements and history of the world

20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them.
I didn't answer this question already?

21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family?
Well I suppose. I didn't agree that we should seclude ourselves from the rest of the world as they did. They viewed me as a disrupter of our peace

Hm.. I don't really know

23. As a child, what were your favorite activities?

Curiosity, eagerness to learn, desire to make the world better... pretty much all the traits I have now!

25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like?
I... wasn't very popular. Most of the children followed the elder's ideas that we should remain as we are and not be tainted by the problems of the lesser beings who dwell in the outside world

26. When and with whom was your first kiss?

27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity?

Our teachers tell us that our customs are too important and precious to lose to the rest of the world. That we had tried educating others throughout history and still the world destroys itself. But if we're so great, why don't we share our knowledge?

Part 3: Past Influences

The day I became one with the sea

Don't believe I'm capable of evil things

Um... once I flooded an entire room.. my own
