The Elyrian Ventures
Naia Ayani Edasseril
A young girl with long dark hair. Usually, the hair is hanging loosely, except when she’s adventuring or travelling, where it’s usually braided or set in a ponytail.
She prefers long, loosefitting dresses in light materials suitable for the tropical climate of Katanga. Colors depend on mood, but usually a blue dark as the starry nightsky is preferred.
After spending more than a year in the cold regions north of Lost Gorhal, the party discovered that her once soot-black hair was golden-yellow-orange with a metallic hue. With the weakened sun, her dark tan also faded and she’s now as light-skinned as most Elyrians
When asked about this “disguise”, she simply states that most Elyrians would frown upon her “distinct” appearance, so she’d rather hide it. She claims to use a simple black dye for the hair, while using a soot-based substance for masking the shininess.
When asked if her looks are normal and natural for the Katanga region, she avoids answering and changes the topic instead.

Deity / Religion
The Flamelord of Katanga (Dracoism)
- She claims to have been led to the Mellowstream region by strange dreams and omens. In time, she’s supposed to find something – or someone – although the exact purpose of this endeavour is unknown to her.
- Since she doesn’t know where her dreams will lead her, she’s reluctant to pick up anything that requires long-term responsibility (husband, estate, titles, etc).
- She wants to retrace her Elyrian heritage, although she’s not exactly certain where to look.

- Drawing. She somewhat skilled at drawing, and likes to draw when she can do so privately. When she has the spare time for it, she loves to draw landscapes and cityscapes – especially at night if the stars are showing. From time to time, she also draws shapes and symbols on herself as a means of temporary decoration.
- Dancing. As a child, she always loved the attention performers would get, but the family frowned upon most of them. Publicly, the family prefers to keep a low profile and blend in, which conflicts with musical or singing performances since they requires an audience and drawing attention. Instead, she took up dancing. Besides being a great way to stay in shape, it’s also treated more favorably in high society, and it fits well in with Katanga culture.
- Magics. Anything magical in origin or workings has her interest.
