/Amaya is still more of a childlike "cute" than an adult "beauty". She
has the soft face and pointed nose of a run-of-the-mill elf, with a
skinny body, almost but not quite athletic. Her hair is cut short and
modest, but has grown out since her monastery days. She bruises
easily. Her eyes are very wide, making her look about as naive on the
outside as she comes across as from conversation.

Personality & Mannerisms

Disposition: Lawful Good

Amaya is still very young and lacks the outward calm and
self-confidence that most elves away from their families have. She
makes up for this with an incredible amount of both faith and
stubbornness. Even when she’s terrified, her knees may shake and her
voice may come out as a squeak but she won’t run if she’s determined.
When she isn’t faced with danger, Amaya is upbeat, cheerful and
excitable, her voice often high-pitched. She knows a little of the
language of Amatsu as a fan of such things. Even though she means
well, she can be judgmental and outspoken, quick to point a moral
finger when a wiser knight of the church would try to be
understanding. Even after the war, she's much the same. She's shed
tears for slave and soldier alike, and fought with a fury against
injustice. The balance between justice and mercy is the crux of
paladinhood. Amaya still struggles on that rack. Until she chooses
between zealotry and moderation, she'll continue to be weak in
herself.

Biography

Character Age: 56
Birthdate: June 21
Birthplace: Eikholt
Occupation: Paladin

//Amaya was born to a husband and wife team of criminals, known for
burglary and hold-ups in Alfheim. Amaya was a little girl of twelve
when her father finally mortally wounded a shopkeeper during a
getaway. He was sentenced to death and his wife was forced to flee. In
a desperate, callous move, Amaya's mother attempted to give her
daughter to a nobleman as a servant. Roedhen Daircrann was a man
without much empathy. He put up with the idea that Amaya's mother
would live off her daughter's servant work simply because it was
cost-effective. Amaya was a willful and difficult servant, her
stubbornness making her intractable, however, Roedhen was a man with
too many young serving girls to discipline them all. She was sullen
and resentful, but willing to open up to Roedhen's son, Collin. Collin
was a soul linker, a spirit medium whose odd powers were poorly
understood in Eikholt, a border town where human ideas came through on
occasion. Amaya hid her crush on the older elf as he struggled with
the task of teaching himself soul linking from the scraps and rumors
that came through the portal. One day became possessed by many
spirits, attacking and terrifying her. Amaya ran, stealing, borrowing
and begging her way to Rune-Midgard. Nearly out of stolen coin, she
was taken in by the Rune Church. She spent years in the monastery
where she was taught about the Christian God and promised that He
would protect his followers. Amaya's stubborn streak was not crushed
under her new-found fear. Instead of taking the vows of a nun, she
chose another goal. To free Collin and anyone else of the threat of
demons, she swore the vows of a holy knight. Amaya is a sub-par
swordsman, but made it through the war on the strength of a gift.
Ironically for one of her faith, she once met the god Thor, who, in
order to turn her youthful zealotry to a path that benefited him,
accepted her idea that he was "a holy messenger." He gifted her with a
divine sword and charged her to fight for the downtrodden slaves.
During the war, Amaya fought like another woman, one possessed by an
iron will, but the blood of slavers is still blood. Amaya lost her
will when she saw the faces of the people she had killed. An explosive
from a Schwartzwald artillery piece left her recovering in a Rune
hospice, her sword lost on the field and her armor irreparable. Amaya
is still recovering physically, but seems to have lost something more
than just a sword.
