Hethea Nightshade
Touch of Elune
OOC: What about the kaldorei inspires you, and what is your favorite thing about them?
I have always found that the Kaldorei hold such cool, and alluring aesthetics. I am also such a fan of a race who promotes strong, and independent females within their society. As for favorites? I think my favorite thing about them is their inclusion of both nature and community. They are as much apart of the forest as any other thing which dwells there.

IC: What memory has the most impact on your character's life, and does it drive them today?
I think one of the most important memories for Hethea would be the countless years she spent studying the craft of herbalism, and mending the wounded and ill with her mother, and grandmother. The endless information and training she would have received has only proved to be useful in her life. I think it drives Hethea in many ways, one being that it has given her a constant reminder that even blessing from Dragons, and their Goddess death is the end each person must come to terms with. It has also driven her to be kind, and helpful to many - thus being more prone to interact with those outside of her race.


Quickness
OOC: Describe your dream job or the hobbies you most enjoy and why.
I'm currently in school to become an Educator. My specialty would be Art, and History. So my dream job would be an Art Professor, encouraging, and teaching new and upcoming artists.

IC: What skills can your character teach and do they have any hidden talents?
Hethea is a skilled Herbalist, and Field Medic, which she learned from her family, as well as her time spent as a Sentinel. As for hidden talents, she was a member of the Shadowleaves, which was a unit under the command of Shandris Feathermoon. There she learned many skills and traits as a unit which specialized in assassination, infiltration, and sabotage.


Nature Resistance
OOC: What personal strengths and weaknesses do you want to develop as a writer?
I would like to develop turning my character ideas into an actualized character. I feel I can create concepts, but the execution is not always there.

IC: Name one thing you love about your character, and one thing you'd like to improve for them.
I love Hethea's dedication to her people, to her homelands. I would like to see her improve in opening up to others. She has lost so many friends and loved ones to the wars and it has built some walls.


Wisp Spirit
OOC: Describe your hopes and expectations for your ideal roleplay community.
I would like to see a community of people who are both uplifting, and welcoming. I also would love to see an openness to create a place where ideas, and characters can be brought together who may not have had the chance to previously. As for specifics? I think I would like a community that is active, and yet not so restrictive to where you are required to attend events daily, and are given to freedom to do both content, and rp.

IC: Is your character spiritual, and what made them that way?
Hethea is spiritual, but she is not a priestess. She adores, and praises Elune - but she has not chosen to take up the mantle of priestess, and go through that training. Who made Hethea have this level of spirituality? I think it would be fair to assume a majority of the Kaldorei race is in this limbo of worshiping Elune, and yet not having taken the step to becoming a priestess.


Shadowmeld
OOC: Are you an introvert or extrovert, and what does your ideal get together consist of?
I am a mix of the two for sure, but I hold much more Extrovert tendencies than the other. As for my ideal get together, I would say a house party or a casual evening out with friends at a restaurant. Something small, meaningful, and yet not restrictive.

IC: Does your character like going on adventures or would they prefer to stay home and relax, why?
Hethea is full of wanderlust, and yet holds so much love for her homelands. It is always an internal struggle as she yearns for exploration, and yet has the consistent tug within her heart to return home - to make sure her loved ones and homelands are safe.

Ishnu'alah Hethea!

Your introduction prompts are very insightful, and already I can see you have a lot in common with other players in Silver Circle as does Hethea. Your interest in art and history compliments the interests of many up and coming artists and concept designers within Silver Circle. I'm curious to know, are you an artist yourself?

Hethea's love of herbalism and scholarly pursuits will be shared by characters like Elliistra, Kelanthos, Verlille, Seldarine, and many more. It'll be a nice thing to see come about if and when she attends some of our more casual, scholarly events.

I'm curious about your OOC response to the Nature Resistance prompt. You mentioned that you feel you can create concepts, but the execution is not always there. I feel this is something we all experience at one point or another as artists, writers, and roleplayers. For many these feelings are rooted in a lot of doubt. Is this accurate for you as well? If so, this is something we do take interest in helping people break through, if we can. Finding inner confidence to forge ahead with your own creative invention is something we care about, and we've developed systems like the Path System as a tool for members to find that inner confidence. Of course, talking through concepts is also a great way to help break through those barriers.

Her love for adventure and homelands is a commonality shared by most in the guild and I suspect this common ground will really help her connect with others.

Hethea Nightshade
Hello, thank you for taking the time to not only read my introduction, but also take it upon yourself to ask really great questions!

First, I am an artist! I do a lot of traditional work; watercolors, ink, oils, etc.

As for my prompt which talks about my downfalls, I think a lot of it is doubt. Doubt in myself, my skills as both a writer, and an artist. I am always the most critical of my work, as I’m sure so many others can be. It is something I often need to remind myself that it’s all a work in progress. One doesn’t reach excellence in art forms overnight, nor is it a transition that ever really finishes. I think it is a skill we must all be willing to practice, and continue to practice!

I am excited to see how more of your members react to Hethea! The last couple events I tagged along in have only been fun, and exciting! I think the event in Darkshore last night went well, and Hethea got a chance to meet several members of the Silver Circle!

Howdy!

Your IC blurb for Wisp Spirit made me chuckle a bit because Shaureyne discussed that exact topic with Rhionana a few evenings ago. It is actually a really unique way to look at things; I'd now like to think that the Silver Circle is just one big Elunian limbo, haha.

Your character has a lot of potential for growth, and I think you're pretty neat too! I hope you keep coming round to hang out with us :^D

I would also LOVE to see your artwork, if you'd be comfortable sharing it!! :3
