|Ananasi Aletrios (I)|
|Apprentice of Sombra|
|Created||April 28, 1999|
A lithe form glides silently along with inhumanly fluid grace. Her skin is a rich brown, so dark as to be almost black, and contrasts dramatically with her brilliantly colored yet simple clothing - a tunic woven of the sun's dying rays, and loose pants of the light under the Maelmordian Seas in a summer's storm. Her dark hair is cropped very close to her head, emphasizing her pointed ears. She sees you looking at her, and bows slightly with grave courtesy. As you glance again at her tunic, enthralled with the changing hues, she smiles and says with a lilting Elvish accent, "My journeyman project for Lady Sombra. I hope to become a Master one day."
The last thing you notice about her is a tracery of faint silver lines down one side of her neck, disappearing down her back. Ananasi has a special twinkle in her eye.
Ananasi is in perfect health.

Ananasi Aleitros was apprenticed to Sombra at a very young age; Sombra noticed Ana had been hanging out around the looms on top of Cillidellia a lot anyway and seemed to be entranced by the whole light-weaving process, so she spoke to Ana's parents about it and took Ana as her ward when the child was 5 or so. Her tasks at first were pretty light, of course, but eventually she began to actually study the Weaving and was good enough at it that her journeyman project was finished when she was 16. She and Sombra decided that since essentially her whole life had been spent learning to Weave, it was time she took a break and discovered more of the world before beginning Mastery studies. So she went to Adventurer's School to learn the wandering arts, and naturally took to magic as well since it was so closely related to light-weaving - at least, the way she looks at it...you just sort of look at the world as it is, and think about how you want it to be, and Weave things that most people think you can't weave... She has no siblings. She's always been a little set apart by her dark skin, unusual among non-Drow elves. The calm patience and solitude required for weaving have given her a reserve and gravity beyond her years, which often get her attention and respect greater than that ordinarily given a young journeyman. But she'll let her guard down and be funny with people she trusts, or when she thinks no one's looking. She has been known to quack softly to herself from time to time. She hasn't yet decided what she wants to do for a Masterwork, but isn't in any rush to get it done, figuring she'll see the world first. She's been spending a lot of time on the isolated island of Tier Sh'Halen, thinking about perhaps doing a tapestry to tell that story, someday.

Ananasi's Monkey (Co-Written between Cordir & Ananasi) Short Description: a small monkey Long Description: A small monkey looks at you curiously. Look monkey: The monkey only comes up to your knee (and that's if he stretches). He seems very interested in you - sniffing your knee, pawing boots, leggings, cloak, and whatever else he can reach. Just as you start to wonder if he's up to something, a tall, dark elf appears. "There you are!" Ananasi says. "You wandered off again - stop that! Take your hands out of his pockets, monkey. No stealing today." With a disappointed sigh, the monkey scrambles up to take his usual place, perched on Ananasi's shoulder. She patiently unwraps his tail from around her head, and they go off to find another adventure. If the monkey gets his way, it will involve waving capes at bats. Look keywords Keywords: monkey Extra Descs: Monkey Fez Squeezebox Tassel Beltpouch Pants Sign Look pants: No self respecting monkey would dash about in the nude, therefore Ananasi had a pair of very nice soft cotton pants created for her pet monkey. They are neatly pressed and clean, and are striped in a subtle pattern of many shades of gray upon black. That seems an unusual choice for a monkey with a fez and squeezebox, but as you shrug philosophically, the monkey winks at you audaciously. Look pouch beltpouch: Encircling the monkey's trim waist is a small black beltpouch made of soft leather. It has a drawstring top, but is bulging outward with the quantities of peaches, kiwi and mangoes that have been hidden inside. A few odd pieces of pale, perfectly square paper, perhaps for origami, also peep out of the pouch. Look tassel: The tassel is made of midnight threads, ornamented with bits of dark grass. Look squeezebox: Ananasi's monkey dropped this squeezebox when he got distracted. Lots of buttons and levers make you wonder how someone as easily distracted or scared as a monkey could ever learn how to get any music out of this thing. There are pawprints all over it. Look fez: This fez looks like just the right size for a small monkey. It's got a tassel on the top that swings just so - perfect for a tiny monkey to play with when he's not distracted by something else. Look sign: A sign reading "Ananasi's monkey" has been dropped by the monkey. The letters are a bit wobbly, as though the monkey wasn't holding the sign very steady while Ananasi was trying to paint it for him. There are also stick figures of the elf and the monkey, and a bat. The monkey appears to be bravely waving a cape at the bat.
