Personal Information:
*Personality: Vanyalin appears to be the quiet one out of the Alcarin brood. An accomplished musician she favors the lyre, and her voice is a soft soprano, much like her mother’s.

Having taken after the D'Riel side of the family, most notably the S’Hean Elves, she has an innately curious nature and can often be found with her nose in a book. History and languages are among her favourite subjects, and she has taken to wandering about to learn more about the worlds around her

However, the tiny redhead has inherited her Amazon Ammah's temper. Not as easily roused to it as An'Thaya, she is never the less a dangerous woman when riled. She seems to have inherited her Doro Y'Roden's love of drinking as well.

Battle Trained in weaponry and hand-to-hand combat.

Background Information:
*History: Vanyalin was born and raised in the Whispin Jungle, the youngest child of Galain and An’Thaya Alcarin. Bookish and quiet she kept to herself most of the time until her life was twisted around in Shattered Web.
She met Elandriil at her mother’s wedding to Callan, punching the Silver in the mouth when –during a fight – he bled on her. Aerdon Dragon blood is high in iron and it burned her skin.
Over time, she fell in love with the Silver, reluctantly. She was afraid of love after seeing what it did to her parents and others. Elandriil and Van became lovers, but she couldn’t bring herself to say that she loved him.
The pair formed a light surface bond in Scorched Earth, just before her Uncle Tallin kidnapped Vanyalin. The torture Tallin put her through released the Crimson Dragon within her genetics and soul. She was rescued by Elandriil, and the pair bonded to keep her soul from shattering. With Mira Badb Catha's help, the two were fused together, bonded completely as An’Thaya and Callan are.

Other Information or Things that may be discovered by your character:

  • Vanya's scent is reminiscent of strawberry, fresh water and smoke
  • Vanya is ambidextrous
  • Vanya can drink many of the dragons under the table
  • Vanya's eyes are cat-slit and faceted emerald-green
  • When Vanya is using 'Aethyr' the scent of 'ozone' will permeate the air
  • Water is irresistible to S'Hean elves, as a result Vanya is hard pressed not to strip down and jump in anytime the opportunity presents itself
  • On planets with lighter gravity than Whispin's (which would be nearly all of them aside from Arun) Vanya is faster and stronger.
  • D'Riels are well known for their appetitive and most folks will try to get to a buffet table before they do if they want to get anything to eat
  • When healing someone else's wound, it will reappear on her and then heal rapidly
