Ishnu'alah brothers and sisters of Elune!
I'm Valerie. I've RP and interacted with a few of you before and it's always a pleasure running into someone from the Silver Circle out in the world! Freelancing art forced me to shake the altohalic addiction long ago, but I've long told myself if I was ever going to delve into the delight of another character, this was where I should try to put them. Well, it finally happened. Meet Ivahra Autumnsong.

Touch of Elune
OOC: What about the kaldorei inspires you, and what is your favorite thing about them?
I have a shameless penchant for all things Elven and the Kaldorei in particular really sing to my pagan heart. There is also so much fascinating lore woven around them and community headcanon lore (such as the markings) just delightful additions.

IC: What memory has the most impact on your character's life, and does it drive them today?
Growing up in Suramar, she experienced magic on a quasi-regular basis...but was never allowed to pursue it. Until, one day, her friends began to dabble—crystalizing mana gems (did not go so well), trying to summon forth water (a container for it helps), illusionary images (read: boys), and invisibility (which can be quite a scare when the whole body doesn't disappear). Despite the many, many setbacks, she loved every second of it. What also has stuck with her is how her mother regularly refused to allow her to learn even the basics of magics, even being taught to fear them. For reasons unknown to Ivahra, her mother, Vessame, has held a stubborn and defiant attitude that no one in the family should ever dabble in magic up until the day she died. And Ivahra has respected that wish...until her mother passed away and her father didn't have the strength to keep refusing her and the world outside of Suramar was open to exploring. Now curiosity has gotten the better of her, and she wants to explore the world, learn about magic, and more. Fortunately, her father is more than aware of what's out there and has guided her to places where she'll get proper, and safe, instruction.

OOC: Describe your dream job or the hobbies you most enjoy and why.
Storytelling! I am a professional storyteller, specializing in mediums heavy in both art and writing—Comics, Graphic novels, storyboards, and cinematography. For me, there is something reverent and divine to be found in telling a good story or illustration. I also enjoy historical sword fighting, archery, and traditional bowmaking.

IC: What skills can your character teach and do they have any hidden talents?
She's too inexperienced to be teaching or to show hidden talents yet, but she has demonstrated some innate skill with Divination and Warding spells in secret. She's also a decent artist, and I'm looking forward to sharing and posting some of her IC sketches.

Nature Resistance
OOC: What personal strengths and weaknesses do you want to develop as a writer?
I come from very visual mediums and mediums where editing is commonplace, so I would like to get better at prose (most of my writing is in script form) and improv. My strengths are art, subtext and story structure, and I enjoy group projects more than solo ones.

IC: Name one thing you love about your character, and one thing you'd like to improve for them.
I've always had a soft spot for characters who can make the darkest situations bearable, who are the beating heart of idealistic passion, and she has that in spades. As for improvements...the girl is sadly naive, a little aloof, and decently timid. There is so much she doesn't know. About the world. About magic. About her own family. She's also fairly unorganized—that tome she carries around is as much a sketchbook as it is a spellbook...with many loose sheets hanging out from retroactive attempts to reorganize it into one or the other. Let's face it, she's a precious disaster-college kid type of character full of potential.

Wisp Spirit
OOC: Describe your hopes and expectations for your ideal roleplay community.
I've met and interacted with a great number of roleplay communities over the years. I have admittingly high hopes and expectations for OOC communication/clarity, conflict resolution, the ability for the group to come together, and the respect and creation of boundaries and safe places for everyone.
IC: Is your character spiritual, and what made them that way?
Yes, it was inspired by her mother who instilled the faith heavily in the young girl growing up. She was very adamant about such things, and tried hard to push Ivahra towards the priesthood and downplay the magic all around them.

OOC: Are you an introvert or extrovert, and what does your ideal get together consist of?
I'm a very quiet and shy extrovert, interestingly enough. And my ideal get-together would involve swords. And/or Bows. And/or pointy ear aesthetics.
IC: Does your character like going on adventures or would they prefer to stay home and relax, why?
She wants to adventure, and dreams of it—but she doesn't have the prowess with the sword or the cunning wit to survive on her own. She can be rather timid but in truth, only makes for a good bookworm if it's an exciting tale of fiction and less so when it comes to her actual studies.

Elune-Adore Ivahra,

First off it was great to see a new face at the event last night. I'm glad that you came around and reached out, it's exciting to see people taking interest! You did remarkably well and were very handy. Despite my outwards .... attitude (let's call it that) towards mages, it is great to see people willing to play them and bring them into Kaldorei lore.

I'm curious about a few things, mostly your character, but pretty much all of that can come from rp'ing with you. The growing up in Sumamar, I know there are a few characters who would love to hear about that. A few that you could even begin swapping drawings and notes with. A lot of people in the guild are historians and scribes, I think you'll fit in rather well.

I look forward to seeing you around. If you have any questions, you can reach out to me (Ailsie#0416 on discord or Grade#1377 on bnet), or one of the various other members who would love to help!

Winds at your back falore,

Cayldiais Moonfang
