l gregar
A tall Aarakocran hovers before you, wings holding him effortlessly aloft. He is not the biggest specimen you have ever seen, but his strength andcapability are clearly evident. His feathers are gold-dappled brown, and upon each wing you notice a mark. The right wing bears an indigo Ward,proclaiming his Covenant with the Lady of Fate. The second is harder to identify... finally, recognition comes - the symbol of House Tsarran. You blink. An Aara? In Tsarran? Then you recall the tales: the lady long gone, its lord all but, and two sons, one of flesh, disowned, another of spirit, acknowledged.

A chaotic swirl of emotions dances in his gaze as he catches you looking so boldly. Truly a child of the Triat Wyld, though tempered by Weaver's honor and Wyrm's growth.

Suddenly, a roar shakes the very air, and he seems to brighten. "Ah, that would be my ancient green friend! Nothing like a dragonfight to start the day." He summons spells to cloak and ward himself, then flies off, leaving you to wonder if his glee and recklessness are but masks to cover something deeper...

Perhaps you will never know

l brianna
Though she bears no resemblance to the winged insect, the young woman standing before you instantly reminds you of a butterfly. This puzzles you for a moment, until you finally recognize her as the tiny, frail little half-starved waif that was rescued by the Lady Silonch and Lord Abender Stormreaver, and accepted into
the Tigers by Lord Tripper. It seems the little caterpillar has finally grown beyond her protective chrysalis.

No longer stooped and shivering with fear, she has bloomed into a strong, graceful, eloquent young woman who meets your gaze with one of quiet determination in her storm-blue eyes. Tucking a stray lock of softly wavy, chestnut brown hair behind one ear, she lifts a hand in blessing and benediction. As her hand lifts, her sleeve
slips down her arm, baring her wrist. There, a narrow band circles her lower forearm in a pattern of jagged lines. She blushes, and covers the lightning bolt tattoo, a reminder of a debt of honor and tender first love that blooms determinedly in her heart still.

Brianna is in perfect health.
