Jillian Tiggins Character in Verridia | World Anvil

Jillian Tiggins

Jillian stands just over 3 1/2 feet in height but has enough personality to fill the shoes of someone double her size. She is slender and quite attractive, and filled with a wanderlust like many of her kin. Jillian is a talented musician and singer, with a bit of a mysterious past. She showed up on the docks of Paraanor with nothing but a handful of coin, a fiddle and a short blade one day with a story about her lifelong dream to be a sailor. Since then, Jillian has taken to the life of sailor but will be the first to admit that she dislikes brine, and close quarters.   She has an innate ability to manipulate the Weave on some small scale, utilizing this ability to keep herself free of salt water. As a matter of fact, her attire is usually clean and she takes great care to keep herself presentable. She is often asked why a feyheart would choose to wear footwear; after her first voyage she came away with sun burnt, salt caked feet. That was enough for her, she says with a smile.
