Kihra (KEE-rah)

(a.k.a. Ruby)

Kihra (sometimes known as Ruby due to her red fur and scales) is a Kobold from the small community of Deeproot, a Kobold warren within the Dark Hollows located beneath northwestern Imera. Inspired by stories of adventure and heroes from her childhood, Kihra has ventured up to the surface in order to explore the wider world, as well as to better her understanding of her recently developed ability to use magic.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

Like most Kobolds, Kihra has a small, slight physique. While not particularly athletic, her underground upbringing has given her an average level of skill at climbing and traversing rough terrain.

Body Features

Kihra has a reptilian, humanoid body, with two digitigrade legs with three toed clawed feet, two arms with clawed hands (three fingers and a thumb each), and a tail, with a mix of scales and fur covering their body (scales on the underbelly, soles of the feet, and palms, fur covering the rest of the body).

Facial Features

Kihra has red fur covering her head much like the rest of her body, long, slightly droopy knife-shaped ears with black fur at the tips, and a pair of black, backwards facing horns. Additionally, she has three small spots of a slightly darker shade of red on each cheek, in a manner comparable to human freckles.

Special abilities

Kihra has the ability to use magic, though she's hampered by her lack of training.

Apparel & Accessories

Kihra wears simply, sturdy clothing consisting of a pair of trousers, a simple, sleeveless mage robe tailored to her short stature, and a short, hooded cloak modified to accommodate her ears and horns.

Specialized Equipment

Kihra still carries the pouch she used as a forager, using it to store plants (for both eating and medicinal purposes) and various other small items.

Mental characteristics

Education

Kihra recieved the same basic communal education as the rest of her peers, as well as training in the duties of of serving as a healer.

Employment

Before her magical talents became apparent, Kihra was initially a forager for her tribe, as well as an apprentice to her tribes healer.

Intellectual Characteristics

Like most Kobolds, Kihra is somewhat excitable, especially when presented with new experiences. Additionally, her training as a forager and healers apprentice has given her a basic understanding of how to identify plants for food & medicinal use, and she has a near-perfect memory of the stories she's heard growing up, able to recite them by heart.

Morality & Philosophy

Kihra always tries to see the best in the world around her, and is always willing to give others the benefit of the doubt.

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

Kihra is driven by a strong desire to see the wider world beyond her underground home, inspired by the stories from her childhood. Since her ability to use magic became apparent, she also wants to learn how to properly control it, something she feels isn't possible within the confines of her small community.

Savvies & Ineptitudes

Having once been a forager for her Warren, as well as an apprentice healer, Kihra has some skill at finding useful plants, both for eating and medicinal use. Since she never received any formal training in how to use magic, her knowledge  on spellcasting is very limited, and she has difficulty controlling her magic.

Likes & Dislikes

Kihra enjoys new experiences and stories, especially when sharing them with others.

Virtues & Personality perks

Kihra has a friendly and outgoing personality, and always tries to see the best in the world around her.

Vices & Personality flaws

While an admirable trait, Kihras willingness to see the good in others first, combined with her relative inexperience with the outside world, makes her somewhat naive.

Social

Social Aptitude

Kihra is very sociable and outgoing, though she does become shier in situations that put her significantly far out of her comfort zone.

Speech

Kihra has a casual, friendly manner of speech, though she becomes quieter and more reserved when in highly unfamiliar situations.

History

Mar and Kihra first met three years ago, when Mar was passing through the Kobold warren of Deeproot while investigating rumours of an ancient Gleamscale vault in the area. Kihra, then a forager for her warren, was intrigued by Mar and his stories of the surface, which she hoped to one day explore herself, while Mar, upon realising her magic potential and lack of instruction, offered to take her in as his apprentice and train her. The two have been working together since, Kihra helping Mar with his work, and Mar helping to train Kihra in properly using her magic, and promising to bring her with him when his expeditions take him further out into the world if she's interested in joining him.

Nicknames & Petnames

Mar frequently reffers to Kihra by her nickname, "Ruby", while Kihra often reffers to Mar as "Master".

Relationship Reasoning

Kihra appreciattes having someone to train her in using her magic, as well as possibly giving her the chance to explore the wider world, while Mar appreciattes having someone who shares in his interests and can help him with his studies.

Commonalities & Shared Interests

Kihra and Mar both have a love for exploration and discovery, and Kihra hopes that Mar would allow her to join him on future expeditions.

Wealth & Financial state

Kihra has below-modest wealth, though she's able to work around this through whatever materials

A good build out for Ruby! You do a good job of giving us an idea of who she is. I like the way you link to details on things a new reader/player might no know.

Please visit The Rookery and comment if you are moved to do so.

Thanks! I'm really glad to hear that, considering she's one of the main characters of the story I'm working on.
