Appearance: Asti is not large. Standing short even for a Deshreti woman, Asti looks up slightly to see eye to eye with her half-dwarven partner, Sivan. For a Deshreti woman, Asti’s skin is very dark, and she has grown her thick curly hair out very long to tie back and tuck beneath her hood. Her brown eyes always look slightly outside of eye contact with other individuals, a subtle but intentional effort by Asti to keep her conscious will separate from the influence of those around her. Having said that, Asti’s eyes are soft and kind, and those who can embrace the otherworldly way she speaks find much comfort in her smile. Her cheek bones are high and prominent, forming the top of a triangular and pointed jaw. She usually wears her hood up, and wears a simple robe underneath her armour and when in plainclothes.

 

Inventory:

Venator Pack

  • 1 deepsilver chain shirt
  • 1 set of simple clothing
  • 1 steel scimitar
  • 1 recurve bow
  • 20 iron-headed arrows
  • 5 silver-headed

Animal Companion: Sivan began using a double-mule-drawn cart with his partner Asti long ago. The two mules don’t belong to either Venator in particular, though the larger one, Saffron, is better suited to carrying the heavier Sivan in the case that the mules must be ridden. Asti rides the smaller one, Tumeric. Both were named by Asti.

 

Biography: Daughter of a merchant sea captain who became wealthy on a few disreputable hauls, Sivan was raised far from poverty. Growing up in a mid-sized seaside house, Asti's father could afford to have her raised by servants while he was it sea, though in all honesty Asti was largely raised by school, and by books. Her thirst for knowledge and search for spirituality pushed her into obedient behavior that permitted as system by which she could learn. By the time she was nearly of marrying age, Asti had gained enough trust among those who had raised her that she was left entirely unattended if she so desired for long periods of time. During these periods she began to seek out the sport and skill of hunting, leaving town to pursue wild animals with fellow students. Shortly before Asti's final birthday that would bring her into marrying age, her father departed on a journey from which he would not return. Evidence that passerby ships have seen seem to indicate her father's ship was destroyed by some form of beast, or a group of beasts. Asti's sorrow over her father's senseless death defined her coming of age, as she immediately sold the house she had been raised in to one of her servants, giving away most of his wealth and using what was left to buy equipment with which she could live an isolated existence. Guided by her interpretation of Thoth's teachings, Asti lived outside her home city for a short while, then gave her family another leap of faith with the sea. Sailing from Zirta to Sevenxia, Asti quickly decided she could learn the most on borders of civilizations, and made plans to try to sustain herself near Emerita, on the edge of the Southwestern Wilds. It is here, during a chance encounter with several Arachnians, that Asti met Sivan, the lone Venatori who took her under his wing, where she could continue her spiritual exploration of hunting in service of the innocent.

 

Personality: Asti has a deep seated spirituality that involves a very simply and genuine love for men, elves, dwarves, and any other creatures when innocent. Her communication, while alienating to some, is always with the best of intention. She frequently speaks to the living creatures she kills after their deaths, showing a consistent respect the coincides with her spiritual views of hunting and killing. Very difficult to anger, Asti's study of writing, religion, and philosophy built a set of core principles on which she has continuously built her life. Daily prayer is an essential part of this, as is the defense of the innocent without prejudice. Without hatred, Asti allowed the sorrow following her father's death to develop her keen passion for hunting and gathering ones own food into a keen passion for hunting the hunters of the innocent. Still a lover of her father and believer that he is a good man, Asti lives with a clean conscience.

Appearance: As a half dwarf having lived among humans for so long, Sivan has gotten used to presenting as little more than a slightly short (not even that noticeably, his dwarf mother was unusually tall. He is taller than his partner, Asti) Imperial man, with a thick red beard and bald head. Though his father was a north-blooded man living as an imperial, Sivan presents little in the way of intense northern heritage. His eyes are an unremarkable blue, his broad and framed by his enormous dwarven shoulders. Partial to loose-fitting tunics and tough farmers pants when not in armour, Sivan looks very much like a human in his twenties, though the elongated life of a dwarf has put twice that many years under his belt. His face and bald head are marked with a few notable scars, but most have healed kindly.

Animal Companion: Sivan began using a double-mule-drawn cart with his partner Asti long ago. The two mules don’t belong to either Venator in particular, though the larger one, Saffron, is better suited to carrying the heavier Sivan in the case that the mules must be ridden. Asti rides the smaller one, Tumeric. Both were named by Asti.

 

 

Biography: Sivan was born to his Dwarven mother in the Blackrock foothills. A natural fighter from birth, Sivan honed his abilities in tunnel scraps with chaos races and beastfolk early in life, however as a bastard boy, there was little future for Sivan in the noble clan halls that his best friends most frequently spent their time in. Eventually, he decided to leave home. His time spent travelling with a travelling elite group of dwarven warriors through unclaimed territory in the Northland brought him into communication with a pair of Venatori, who over the course of a few months persuaded Sivan to join them whilst travelling with him. After having completed a number of missions with several different teams, Sivan established a rotational posting near the Southwestern Wilds, hunting with Venators whose partners were injured or ill. It is there that he met, recruited, mentored and partnered with Asti Yadana.

 

Personality: A foil to his partner's otherworldly strangeness, Sivan is an every-man in many ways. Well traveled, even considering his years, Sivan's travels have given him a broad perspective on culture and values. Sivan does not actively worship, having peacefully acknowledged but personally rescinded following the gods nearly a decade again following what seemed to Sivan to be an unreasonable degree of indifference on the part of most pantheons. As a result of his personal lack of spirituality and broad experience abroad, Sivan's method to killing is very efficient and methodical. He carries relatively little prejudice for a half dwarf, though he is known to hold a personal grudge. Sivan's ability to negotiate and peacefully speak even with parties he doesn't personally respect is notable, and his vast knowledge of potions, herbalist, monsters and language are all resources he offers anyone he thinks will use them responsibly.
