Description:Delilah Cardinal is the epitome of purity and holiness. From her sparkling, Cardinal blue eyes to her angelic, silvery-white hair, it seems as though every little part of her, both interior and exterior, is absolutely perfect.
The high elf has the face of an angel. It models her mothers almost flawlessly, being slender and delicate yet retaining Rose Cardinal's high cheek bones and fragile-looking face. The only noticeable difference is that Delilah's is a little bit more rotund, mostly just around the cheeks, but it's not a significant difference. She has full, pink lips and an almost perfect nose that is set evenly on her face just below her exotically-shaped eyes. She has long, raven-black eyelashes. Delilah has her ears pierced and is always seen wearing dangling earrings of only the finest quality gems and precious metals.
Moving onto her immediately-noticed physical features, Delilah is fairly tall for her gender. Her small frame towers at 5'11". The first thing to be noticed about her body is that she's very petite. Her waist is slightly more narrow than her hips, giving her a little bit of curve, but certainly nothing extremely evident. She is rather thin, with long, slender arms and legs and a generally fragile frame.
Delilah's sunkissed skin is of an average flesh color. She burns more easily than she tans, and as a result, she doesn't like to spend too much time in the sun. Her daily activities, however, have given her a little bit of lively color to her natural skin tone. The high elf's hair isn't the standard Cardinal color; when she was inducted into the chapel at Skylos Priory, it for some reason turned its silvery-white. She has let it grow, to see if perhaps the blonde would return, but it has not. The Cardinal child does, however, retain her family's signature blue eyes.
PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS
Alignment: lawful good
Religious Affiliation: holy (very holy)
Likes: prayer, religious hymns and harmonies, spending time with fellow priests and priestesses, helping the needy, feeding wild animals, singing, playing the harp, indulging in sweet fruits, reading, learning, teaching
Dislikes: meat, killing men and animals alike, sinful acts, the Santach and their worshipers, vulgarity, slavery
Description:"Delilah's just perfect."
One might describe her like that in an annoyed tone, simply because her desire to do good is just too good for her own good. And of course, her stunningly angelic looks don't help the cause. Delilah, you see, is very into high morality, worshiping the Hexadus, and charity. She's almost like a superwoman, somehow managing to do this and that without breaking a sweat or ever becoming stress, and not only does she manage to complete any task that is at hand, but she seems to do it both effortlessly and flawlessly.
She is not perfect, however, contrary to popular belief. Delilah has her flaws just like every other living organism on the planet. She finds trust too easily in those who might not even deserve it. She believes that there is good in everyone. She thinks every deserves a second or third or fourth chance, regardless of how bad they've been before. She trusts that if people can just repent for their sins and find light in the Hexadus, then evil shall not exist. Her delusions on the good of the world are warped indefinitely by the hope that someday, evil truly won't exist and everyone will learn to become friends and the slave trade will end. Delilah sometimes has problems accepting reality, and she's very stubborn about it.
On the good side, however, Delilah does prove to be a genuinely good person. While she does give 'the bad guys' more credit than they deserve, she has a knack for giving 'the good guys' and 'the guys who need help' just the right amount of credit that they deserve. She helps them whenever she can, and she does with a good heart.
Delilah is also a vegetarian. She doesn't believe in bloodshed, and while she understands the circle of life and how necessary it is for some animals to eat meat, her personal choice is to not. In her frank opinion, too, she doesn't like the taste of meat; it does indeed make her quite nauseous.
The high elf is also outstandingly intelligent. Ever since she was a little girl, she has loved reading more than anything in the world. Delilah found comfort in stories and history and learning, and she still finds comfort in it today. She adores learning and refuses to stop seeking more information.
HISTORY AND BACKGROUND
Companion Name: Aphelia
PROS AND CONS
• quick wit
• increasingly intelligent
• ibon size when she fully matures
• cheerful and amiable personality
• current size and age
• current frailty
• hollow bones
• increasingly stubborn
Gifted Combat Skills: soon to develop
Gifted Magics: soon to develop
Gifted Stealth Skills: never to develop
Height: 1' tall (presently); 17' tall (when she matures)
Weight: 20 lbs (presently); 1500 lbs (when she matures)
Physical Build: frail (presently); strong (when she matures)
Description:Aphelia presently seems to show she will be of a strong frame. Her current state makes her quite fragile and weak, being a young hatchling, but based on her bone structure and growing musculature, she shows signs of having great strength as an adult.
Her primary color is white as snow. She has black and blue accents many places on her body, bearing a striking resemblance to the patterns of a blue jay. Most unusual about her is the presence of tall, hare-like ears. between those ears is a beautiful blue crest with black tips and markings that sits flat on her head when she's threatened or terrified. It stands tall when she's angry or scared suddenly. Around her grey, colorless eyes is a blue color that makes a curve on either side her face. She has a thin, black stripe on either side of her neck that starts at the base of her throat and continues to her shoulders, at which point it separates into three branches: one goes a little bit up each wing and the other two surround it. Her should has a blue splotch on it as well that further grows into a blue splotch on either wing, outlined on one side by black. A few of her primary covert feathers on her wings are that of a blue jay. Furthermore, she has two unusual protrusions from her shoulders that end with a pretty blue feather with blue and black patterns on it. Her tail is white and has primary feathers, secondary feathers (which are medium in length and light blue in color), and three long featherswith blue and black tips. Her beak and feet are black as night.
Aphelia's general appearance is that of a typical ibon. She is going to grow to be very large in size, large enough to be mounted, despite her currently being small enough to hold in your arms. She has a large wingspan and a narrow body with a long, narrow neck and a sharp, predatory beak. Her tail is long and contains her unique, long feathers that help further identify her as an ibon. Overall she's very pretty.
PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS
Alignment: lawful good
Likes: fruits, playing, fast flying, learning (especially magic), sunny days, warm weather, the beauty of spring and summer, cool summer nights, sometimes the beauty of winter
Dislikes: deceit, being lied to, being hurt, storms, autumn, cruel people, wolves, foxes, dogs
Description:Aphelia is very friendly and very interested in learning. She has a passion for it and never wants to stop, much to the annoyance of residents of Skylos Priory due to her constant questions and asking, 'Why?' until everything makes perfect sense. Her curiosity is admirable as she never stops learning, but sometimes it can be quite irritating.
The ibon is very playful, as would be expected of the young offspring of any species. She loves flying, something she learned to do within recent, and her favorite game consists of someone throwing something far and high into the air so Aphelia can fly after it and catch it.
While Delilah is giving the ibon her own choices when it comes to eating, Aphelia mostly takes after her mistress in that she doesn't really eat meat. Her diet is almost strictly vegetarian, but Delilah insists she get some protein in her for proper growth. Her favorite food is any sweet fruit, and she's not particularly fond of vegetables.
