              Name | Dair
              Date of Birth | September 10, 2016
              Gender | Male

              Essence | Cursed Hag Stone
              Soul | Lightning-struck Oak Tree
              Alignment | Neutral Good
              Rune | Unknown


            𝔞𝔭𝔭𝔢𝔞𝔯𝔞𝔫𝔠𝔢


              Floating around 5'6" or so, Dair is not a terribly imposing figure at first sight. Having neither well-developed muscles or obvious natural weapons, he is certainly nowhere near as dangerous looking as many other Raevans can be. But a closer look reveals a few details that are unique, even among the Raevans. The most noticeable of these are his hands, which are covered in what appears to be a thin layer of bark, fairly rough in texture but still moderately flexible. His chest is covered in a network of fine, branching markings resembling the scars that a person gets when they are struck by lightning that creep up onto his shoulders.
              His wings resemble the bare branches of a tree, and two twisting branches grow from behind his ears, topped with a few cheerfully green leaves. His ribbon has pointed, leaf-like protrusions along it's length, and ends in a perfectly shaped oak leaf.
              He can be easy to overlook, especially around others as his coloring is rather desaturated which allows him to blend into the background with little effort which he doesn't do too much to stop.
              However, he still manages to draw a decent amount of attention to himself simply because of his eyes. Rather than having a defined sclera, iris, and pupil, his eyes are completely black form lid to lid. Even in direct light they remain completely black without any reflected light or highlights, leading many people to believe that he simply doesn't have any eyes, simply empty pits of darkness where eyes should be.


            𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔰𝔬𝔫𝔞𝔩𝔦𝔱𝔶


              Dair is calm and collected in everything he does, shouldering the good and bad with a distracted good-naturedness. He tolerates things done to him with patience that a saint would envy, though it is not matched with an equally forgiving will. Wrongs done against him are not easily forgotten, and his patience can easily be turned into something not so pleasant. The retribution he seeks is usually paid in fear, and he doesn’t hesitate to use his powers to achieve this.

              Despite his steadiness, he’s somewhat unnerving to be around, as he always seems to be looking at or listening to something that no one else can see. It’s often difficult to get his attention at first, though he does make an effort to focus on whoever is speaking to him at the moment. He can also be quite stubborn about things, and once his mind is set on a decision or idea it’s nearly impossible to get him to change it.

              While these traits might make him seem staid and dull to be around, he does have a bit of a mischievous streak in him. His illusions are usually used to play (mostly) innocent pranks on people, often those he’s not fond of, and his re-tellings of his dreams and visions tend to become more grandiose each time. While he usually is able to keep a straight face, this is one of the few times his calm demeanor breaks and a less serious side of him can be seen.


              Likes | Stormy weather, muted colors, nature sounds, absently wandering, warm cozy layered clothes, savory foods, convoluted stories
              Dislikes | Harsh artificial lights, iron, electronic noises, humidity, being lied to, rude people, fine fabrics
              Fears | --
              Dreams & Goals | --


            𝔣𝔢𝔢𝔡𝔦𝔫𝔤


              Lies | His main source of food, Dair gains energy whenever he hears someone telling a lie. The bigger the lie and the more someone tries to make someone believe it, the more energy he gets.
              Sunlight | While not a major source of food, Being out in the sun gives Dair a steady boost of energy, and he tends to wilt without enough of it.
              Stones | This is the least efficient way of feeding for him, but Dair is able to absorb a small amount of energy from stones themselves. He usually keeps a few on him and fidgets with them like a worry-stone, eventually wearing a hole through the center, essentially creating more hagstones as he feeds.
              Water | Not a major food source by any means, but he gets a bit crunchy around the edges if he doesn't stay well hydrated.


            𝔭𝔬𝔴𝔢𝔯𝔰


              Hallucinations (Active) | Dair is able to create intangible visible and auditory hallucinations, though they are usually small things that are hard to notice, slight changes to things that already exist or small noises that are hard to pick out of the background. He is generally only able to have one or two people see/hear these hallucinations, any more people than that requires a significantly large amount of energy. He is only able to affect people that are in his direct line of sight, and direct contact is required for especially strong hallucinations.

              Foresight (Passive) | Appearing usually in the form of dreams and nightmares, Dair can sense if something bad is going to happen, such as large natural disasters or severe illnesses, though this is usually restricted to himself and those close to him.

              True Sight (Passive) | Dair is able to see through most illusions and magical disguises. He is also able to detect when someone is lying, though this not always accurate and requires a bit of guesswork when it comes to deciphering half-truths and not-quite-lies. While this is a useful power to have, it comes so naturally to him that he has trouble noticing if he's actually seeing through an illusion or seeing what everyone else sees.


            𝔱𝔯𝔞𝔦𝔱𝔰


              The Eyes Have It | Does he even have eyes? He's keeping quiet on the subject for now, but don't worry, he can see perfectly fine. He can see everything.
              Could Use Some Lotion | From the elbow down his arms are covered in a thin, flexible layer of bark, which makes doing tasks that require a high level of dexterity a bit difficult for him. His palms and fingers are pretty smooth and feel more like worn wood, while the backs of his hands and arms have a rougher bark-like texture.
              Could Also Use Some Cough Drops | Dair's voice can be a bit shocking when one first hear it, because his voice is rough and rasping as if he's inhaled a lungful of hot smoke. He generally can't talk above a loud talking voice without it cracking, so he tends to be very soft spoken.
              Lichtenberg Scars | Dair's chest is covered in a web of thin scars that resemble lightning bolts or roots, another remnant of the lightning strike that claimed the life of his soul.
              Sticky | Tangling branches grow from his back in place of wings, as well as curve backwards from behind his ears. Both are immobile and only the ones on his head grow leaves, which tend to turn and fall off throughout the year.
              Lightning Rod | Keep him inside during a storm, as he tends to have a higher tendency to attract lightning strikes. While he can shake off some pretty nasty strikes, it's best not to tempt luck because it's not a sure thing. Usually he's left with small burnt patches on his arms, or spots where the bark has completely been blown off.


            𝔰𝔱𝔞𝔱𝔰


              Endurance (32) | Feel free to try and wear Dair down. He will just keep going and going and going and going.
              Intelligence (28) | It's hard to pull the wool over hie eyes, and you have to be a pretty quick thinker to get anything past him.
              Charisma (28) | He finds it surprisingly easy to win people over with his manners, and tries to be polite to most people as a bare minimum.
              Creativity (27) | The amount of twisting of words he does while still managing to toe the line of not-quite-lying takes some stretch of the imagination, even more so if you're trying to figure out what he's trying to avoid blatantly saying.
              Magic (26) | While his magical talents are strong, his control leaves much to be desired and his abilities tend to spiral out of control when he's feeling particularly emotional.
              Friendliness (25) | His strict adherence to his personal code of politeness can make him come across as distant and cold to some, but he does loosen up the longer he knows someone.
              Humor (22) | His humor is not Our humor. Having him trying to explain it doesn't help much either.
              Strength (21) | It's a good thing that he lives with Nell because he probably needs her to open stubborn jars.

Stones that have had holes worn through them naturally are seen as protective amulets and windows into the world of Faerie. What is seen through the holes in these stones is said to be the truth, any illusions stripped away by the stone’s magic. The sight that this stone gives its bearer, however, is a twisted thing that bears little resemblance to the truth, though it seems for all the world as real as anything that you could touch.

Oak trees of varying species can be found throughout the northern hemisphere and have been used for centuries for everything from lumber to medicine. The oak's size and hardiness has been noted throughout centuries, with several religions seeing it as a sacred protective symbol. Oak trees tend to draw lightning to them more often than any other tree, a trait that added to it's significance. However, lightning strikes are also seen as a bad omen in many cultures, and despite the oak's durability, the wounds left in them by lightning often result in weakness and disease, or even the death of the tree.

              Name | Nell Wilson
              Gender | female
              Age | 30, born January 8, 1986
              Occupation | Personal trainer at Port City Athletic Club
              Race | Human
              Text Color: Medium Violet red

              Nell cuts a rather intimidating figure at first glance. Standing at just around six feet tall, she is rather heavily muscled and stands out from the crowd based off of size alone. Her skin is dark and her eyes are even darker, which contrasts starkly with the bright colors she tends to wear. Her hair, which for most of her life was usually done up in dozens of brightly colored tiny braids, has as of late been chopped off, leaving her with just the barest fuzz covering her head. She is usually seen in some variety of activewear, ranging from shorts and a sports bra to sweatpants and a hoodie depending on the weather, but when given the opportunity she dresses up whenever she can, preferring feminine sundresses and brightly colored enamel jewelry, as well as high heels that make her tower even more over most people.


            User Image


              Upon first meeting Nell, most people get the impression that she’s the sort to have motivational quotes hung up in her home, and upon knowing her for a bit longer, that first impression isn’t quite far from the truth. As a person who tries to remain optimistic no matter what and find the silver lining in any situation she comes across, Nell is generally found with a smile on her lips and a hint of laughter in her voice. Unfortunately, she also tends to wear her heart on her sleeve so it is rather easy to tell when she is forcing a smile or making herself be polite to someone. She still tries to put her best foot forward in any situation, though, and will bend over backwards to be kind to people and give them a second (and third and sometimes fourth) chance if something goes wrong.
              Depending on the situation she’s in, Nell can come across as quite intimidating or overwhelming, due to her physical presence and the nearly endless amount of energy she has. She has trouble sitting still for too long, and will start getting antsy and fidgety if left without something to occupy all of her attention.
              And, generally, she comes across as a rather down-to-earth and practical person who’s always a reliable person to lend a hand, but a peek into her house will show touches of the superstitious, from a tiny bell hung over the front door to an almost altar-like setup with pictures of her family and small charms and stones that supposedly ward off bad luck.


              Likes | running, shoes, karate, peaceful settings, impractical jewelry and manicures, dancing, healthy food (and her cheat days), seeing people reach their goals
              Dislikes | boredom, awkward silences, failure, chipped nail polish, celery, sad music

              Nell grew up learning how to make more with less. Having been raised her whole life by her single father in the very rural deep south of Mississippi, she learned quickly how to put things together on a shoestring budget and make the best out of a bad situation. Though they often had the help of their ever-growing extended family, it often seemed to Nell to be her and her Pa against the world. When she was old enough, she was enrolled in a karate class by her father (though she really, really, really wanted ballet class, papa), partially to keep her out of trouble after school until he got out of work, but also to have her burn of some of the boundless energy she had. Though it wasn’t quite what she wanted, she soon forgot all about ballet and quickly began to compete (and win!) in karate tournaments, so it didn’t end up too badly, she guessed.
              The rest of her childhood and adolescence passed mostly without remark, and she eventually went to the local community college to earn a degree in Nutrition and Fitness before heading off to a state college to earn her masters. Eventually she decided that there wasn’t much else that Mississippi could offer her, she packed up her things, said her goodbyes, and made the long trip to Gaia. She quickly fell on her feet, finding a much-too-expensive apartment with a view that makes up for the rent and a job at a local gym, and seems to have had all manner of unusual personal and business opportunities fall into her lap.
              Should the need to work out strike you, feel free to pay her a visit, though she will have to warn you that she’s not so lenient to the people that she’s training.

Nell rents a loft-style apartment a block or two away from the beach, and she claims to have bought it for the view more than anything else. The main portion of the apartment is left open, with the living room, kitchen, and dining area essentially being in the same room. One wall of this space is taken up by large windows that overlook the beach and lead out onto a small balcony.

Nell's room is separated from the rest by partial walls that don't quite reach up to the high ceilings of the apartment.The whole place is decorated cleanly and simply, with the few decorations she has adding splashes of bright colors to the otherwise muted neutral colors of the walls and floors.

A generous loft space hovers over the kitchen area that looks out on the windows with an almost ladder-like set of stairs leading up to it. Nell usually uses it as storage, but upon learning that she would be having a second person live with her, she converted it into a second bedroom, furnished sparsely for the moment with a low bed, an empty bookcase, and a lamp, a curtain strung up over the front for privacy.
