Personal history

Aurae was born to a large ratting family. Her family's business was to dig up fallow fields in preparation for a coming planting season and kill the rats. As the attacks from The Fidean Empire became more intense, farmers had less money to spend on this service, and her family suffered as a result. They began to take food from the fields of the farmers who hired them, eating what they could while not under watch.   This caused many of her family to contract serious cases of Withering Death, as they ate without properly washing or cooking their food. After her older two brother's deaths, her father brought her to the Temple of Perrie in a desperate attempt to heal her.   Kaika, in human form, saw the young girl's predicament and agreed to find a cure for the disease in return for having her as her Acolyte. She trained under Kaika for ten years before the temple was sacked by Fidean invaders in 1640.   She and Kaika remained close during the occupation, though their relationship changed irreversibly because of it.

Education

Aurae studied under Kaika and her mentor, High Priest Vadim, for more than a decade to hone not only her spiritual connection to Kaika, but her healing abilities as well. She is an adept healer, being one of several mages talented at Lifeforce Healing, which High Priest Vadim encouraged her to learn for Kaika's sake.

Personality Type

ISFJ - The Nurturer
ISFJs are philanthropists and they are always ready to give back and return generosity with even more generosity. The people and things they believe in will be upheld and supported with enthusiasm and unselfishness. ISFJs are warm and kind-hearted. They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people’s feelings. People value the ISFJ personality type for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others.   ISFJs have a natural tendency to be hard workers and are often meticulous to the point of perfectionism. ISFJs take personal interest in responsibility for their work, goals and obligations, consistently going above and beyond, doing everything that they can to not just meet but to exceed all expectations.   ISFJs have a rich inner world that is not obvious to observers. They constantly take in information about people and situations and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate, because the ISFJ personality type has an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems.   ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness, and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work, and they’re not likely to buy into doing things in a new way.   Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ. The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application. Once the task is learned, and its practical importance is understood, the ISFJ will faithfully and tirelessly carry through the task to completion.   ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people’s feelings. They do not usually express their own feelings unless they learn to express themselves and find outlets for their powerful emotions.   The ISFJ personality type is warm, generous, and dependable. They have many special gifts to offer, in their sensitivity to others, and their strong ability to keep things running smoothly. They need to remember to not be overly critical of themselves, and to give themselves some of the warmth and love which they freely dispense to others.   Personality trait descriptions from Personality Perfect

She is adorable and quite relatable (I can be a bit too formal myself).   I love her red button nose and thought it was ingenious the little egg filled with irritants. Just enough to deter, it seems.   Well written and I look forward to reading more.
