The Great Mother told me to. I do not question her plans for me.
Why did you join the Panthers?
Same answer as above.
How long have you been with the Panthers?
I arrived the day before the smithy incident. I'm very new compared to most members.
Have you ever worked for another company? Have you ever freelanced?
No and no. I have never been a mercenary before.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
My goal is to serve the Great Mother and to do her bidding. I know that she will lead me on the proper path.
Do you believe in the gods? If so, which one(s) do you follow?
I believe that many gods exist, but the only one that I know well and follow is the Great Mother.
What kind of place were you born?
I was born and raised in Elftown, a part of Shendar City. It's a poor part of the city, and even dangerous at times.
What is your secret worst fear?
I'm always afraid that I will mess up the Great Mother's plans in some way, and disappoint her. I am also afraid of disappointing people that I consider friends.
What one thing you can't do that you've always wanted to be able to do?
This one is easy: read and write. Also, I've always wanted to learn as much information as I can about every subject out there.
What is your view on love/marriage/children?
I believe that love exists. I want to get married one day and have children, but if I don't, I will still be happy devoting my life to the Mother.
Do you follow politics? Why or why not?
No, because the people in Elftown didn't talk about politics much. Also, the fact that I'm illiterate makes following such things difficult. I really would like to learn more about it, though.
Ever killed someone? How? How did it make you feel?
Yes, I have killed someone before. I was walking home from the forest one night, later than usual. This human man that I did not know started to follow me, and even though I tried to lose him, he caught up with me and knocked me to the ground. I quickly pulled my dagger out from the folds of my clothing and stabbed him right in the chest a few times. I scrambled to my feet and watched him. It took him a while to die, and even though it made me sick to my stomach, I couldn't help but watch. Eventually he stopped moving and breathing, and I cleaned my dagger off and pulled the man into an alley where he wouldn't be found for a while. I've never told anyone about it...I don't like to discuss it because I'm afraid of the sick pleasure that I had while watching the man die. I always keep my dagger on me just in case, but I've never had to use it except that one time. At least, not yet.
What was your early life/family life like? Do you still talk to your family? Are they proud of you? (Ashamed? Amused and tolerant?) Are you the first mercenary in your family, or is it a family career?
I never met my parents. I was raised by my aunt, who has a son. They are my family, basically. I love them very much, and they love me. I think that my aunt, Silaqui, is proud of me. Talas, my cousin, is upset that I left, but that is because he will miss me. I am the first mercenary in my family...at least, as far as I know.
What do you want to do when you leave the company/retire?
I will always follow the Mother, and I hope to get married and raise children as well.
Do you like reading/learning more, or fighting/physical?
I believe that I would enjoy reading, if I could do it. I do enjoy learning as much as I can. Fighting does have a certain rush to it...but I try to avoid it if I can, because I scare myself sometimes.
Do you follow rules by nature, or always try to work around them?
I try to follow any rules set forth by my superiors. However, if they interfere with the Mother's plans for me, I will always follow her first and foremost.
Do you like music?
Yes, I like listening to music. One day I would like to learn to play an instrument or to sing.
What's your favorite color?
My favorite color is green--the color of the forests in the spring.
If you could have one wish, what would it be?
To never fall out of favor with the Great Mother. Also, I would like to learn to read and write.
What do you look like?
I am a 16-year-old female half-elf. I'm 5'9" and I weigh 135 pounds. I have thin, straight, jet black hair that goes down to about the middle of my back. I have dark green eyes. You can see a rough sketch of me here.
Who's the most important person in your life?
The Great Mother is the most important being in my life. The most important mortals in my life are my aunt and cousin.
What are the three biggest differences between the player's personality and the character's?
OOC: Anilla is much more devoted towards a deity than I am. Also, Anilla has more of a thirst for knowledge and adventure than I do.
What are your little personality quirks?
I get upset fairly easily if I think that someone that I like is mad at me. Also, I will sometimes sacrifice time with people to be with animals instead. Oh, and sometimes it will seem as if I am talking to myself...but I am in fact talking to the Mother.
What sort of things do you own? Are you attached to physical objects, or not?
I come from a poor background, so I don't own much. I own my dress, cloak, a dagger, and a staff. I have never worn shoes before, nor do I really want to. I am not attached to physical objects, though I would be put out if I lost my staff or dagger.
Are you humble/proud/egotistical?
I am mostly humble. Sometimes, however, I will let my proud side show, especially when discussing my devotion to the Great Mother or my ability with animals.
How do you view other people? Basically good/basically selfish/basically evil? Do you like being around people, or want to just be left alone? Do other people like you?
I believe that all people have the capacity to be good, evil, or some of both. I believe that everyone's life is guided by a god or goddess, but some people choose to listen to their deity and some don't. I generally like being around people, though there are definitely times when I want to be alone or with animals. In general, other people like me, if they can get over the fact that I'm a half-elf.
