Adjuri

The girl peeped out from behind the screen, her green hair was still damp. She was wearing a pair of Farrah’s leggings and a tunic. Her skin was a deep green and her facial markings looked like 3 scratches on each cheek, one of them extended up and ended over her eyebrow.
 

Life

Adjuri was born in a smaller town in The Country of Ildres. Her mother and father were are couple joined by arranged marriage and her mother was so unhappy that she left them when Adjuri was 9 years old. Her father Ambassador Ojal did everything he could to be a good parent as well as do his duties as the ambasador. He wanted to make the world peaceful for his daughter.

She was schooled in their mansion by many different teachers. She had no friends except for her nanny and the staff of the house, it could also be debated whether or not those could be considered friends. Other than that she spent her time playing with stuffed animals. She claims to have gotten over that but she still keeps her favorite white bunny, she named it Sheedu, the Idrish word for white.

When she was around 13, the first peace meetings were held. That meant her father had to leave her back home and go to Bechlea alone. She missed him dearly in those months, but her nanny kept her entertained. Luckily the next meeting was closer to home so her father wouldn't have to leave.

 

Skills and Abilities

She has no fighting abilities at all. Her father focused on teaching her what you need to know to live in a city. She speaks both Idrish and Edrean fluently. Not many Iwachi learn the language of the humans, as they call it.

She is skilled at sowing and crafting clothes, though it is not exactly her favorite past time. She is very logical and can be a great asset when it comes to difficult decisions. She is also very knowledgeble on a wide range of subjects, due to the time she spent reading since she wasn't allowed out much.

She has heightened senses compared to humans and Iwachi, which is helpfull in many situations. She also has moments of accelerated healing compared to others of her species. She has no idea why.

 

Personality and Behaviour

Adjuri is a good person at heart. She is passionate other people and often go against the general opinions found in The Country of Ildres, though that is often a problem because her father has a high position in the government. She is a bit shy but she often gets on well with most people, since she is nice to most. Her motto is that respect is given until they prove themselves to be unworthy of it.

She loves seeing the good in the world but she is not afraid to admit everything that is wrong with it either. She can be outspoken and hard willed despite being shy. She is against the hate there is against the Treil and is a strong advocate of peace between Ildres and Edrea  

Flaws

She is often doubts herself and overthinks to a degree that can be seen as obsessive. It sometimes causes her to freeze in a situation because she worries more about what could go wrong if she does something than what happens if she does nothing.

She shuts down sometimes or bury her emotions so far down that she feels like she is cut of from the world and does not exist within it. As if she is watching the world around her from the outside. When she becomes like that, nothing seems to matter to her at all.

I like all the character portraits you do for your characters. I wish I knew how to artwork as well as you, but I just know how to make maps and flags.

Thank you Dhelian! But I must say I like your maps and flags too, that's something I'm not good at :D

Nicely done, love the artwork of the character, though I feel the writing is a bit, stale to speak. Try to rephrase some of the sentences, since a lot of sentences begin with "she" and "her", often multiple times after one another. Also maybe you should add a bit of education and her intellectual skills if she has been taught in her mansion.

Thank you :D I will try and rework the article when I have time, I can see what you mean. The language is a bit lacking in some areas :D I'll look into the skill part too!

Another awesome character article <3   "She is passionate other people "   Did you mean about?   The art is really good on this one. She looks like a happy person, but caught in a rough spot. How do other nobles and powerful people see her sympathies? Does she have allies? Enemies? Is she caught up in any political plots or shenanigans?

4 Dec, 2018 08:18

Yeah I meant about, good thing you can catch all the mistakes or my articles would be incoherent my now :D   And thank you! I put some effort in to that one, trying to convery her as a person :)   The other nobles do not like her, due to her views. They are generally the ones who are at fault for the persecution of one of the ethnic groups, something that Adjuri does not agree with.   I will make a brief overview of the main conflict very soon, but if you're interested you should go read the linked article (ambassador Ojal, who is her father)

A very "human" character. I appreciate that you listed a lot of her personal character quirks and flaws. It seemed that her father was really trying to focus on her integrating into town. Did her father's training end up helping?   How does she fit into your world? Is she important because of her parents? Or is this just a normal person?

4 Dec, 2018 08:20

Thank you, I try to make them "human", his training did help her, but didn't prepare her that much for what happened after he was gone (it is a good idea to read the article about Ambassador Ojal, of course only if you'd like :D)   She is important as her father has strong ties to the president of their nation, but also as a character as she is one of the main five in my story :D

This is what i call a fleshed out and Human character. She seems to me like an innocent little girl caught up in the turbulence of the struggle between the Iwachi and mankind. Really allows for some great conflicts and character moments. You could expand a bit more on her relationships and how she interacts with her loved ones and other people. What is her relationship with the other main characters of your story if any? Hope my feedback is good enough and as always keep on rocking! Also very nice art of her
