Current Description

Corri the poky little puppy - Triat Master
At first glance, you are struck by the impression of youth. Energetic blue eyes
shine outward, reckless and engaging. Fine wisps of copper curls frame delicate
cheekbones, and she pushes the hair tolerantly out of the way. The rest of her
hair, once plaited in long braids, sticks out sharply in all directions a rude
and ragged chop leaving her shorn. A dark ribbon lays across her neck, creating
a sharp border between chin and clavicle. Behind her neck, the velvet fabric of
the ribbon is smeared by five pale lines of dust.

She pushes yet another escaping curl back behind her ear, sleeve tugging back at
the motion to show a few tattooed ash leaves sneaking into view at her wrist. As
you find further opportunity to study her, you realize there is an aged and well
weathered tree etched across her entire back. Branches are drawn along each arm,
a scattering of leaves flowing wistfully across her forearms. At the bony point
of her elbow, a black-inked raven feather grows from the end of a branch. Down
at her ankles, you see the tattooed ends of the roots, snaked from her hips and
tumbled around her calves down to the soles of her feet. Carried proud upon her
form, the inked form of a majestic Ash looms in black, earthy brown, and shades
of muted green.


Paved with leaves they were the ancient paths I walked alone.
spoken to by evening winds and dying trees and withered stone.
Carefree, singing she approached while I whispered to my ghosts
Drowning sun and melting sky while her laughter chased away my hosts.
Passing by she ruffled me and left an impish grin.
Ill-humoured I informed that indolence is a deadly sin.
Merrily she shouted back that she would take her chances,
her hair a nest of curls, copper like the last leaves on the branches.
There was just the moon to warm me as I stumbled in the snow.
Numb I called a fire down and huddled in my cloaks, not knowing where to go.
The scent of sandalwood and she was there and roasted me a steak.
Double checked her padded collars lock she did, altough I was much too weak.
"Tell me a story" then she asked in a gloomy way, less cheerful than before
and I told of mercenary mages, of elder gods and Ebon wars and more.
She told solemnly to me about a woman in a tree and of life and change and death
and I was left to contemplate in sole companionship of my ghostly cloud of breath.
I mused about the way she'd warned me of her growling hat, that it would pick a fight,
her hair a nest of curls, black like the empty starless sky on a winter night.
Roaddust on my robes again. Slow my pace, inhale the morning breeze.
I never noticed them before, such miracles as these
blooming flowers beside my path, the texture on a tree,
the murmur of a brook, the fragrance of the sea.
I take my rest here on this stone, watch the birds and hear their song.
My journey's ending here. I know she'll be here soon, that it won't be long.
"In what season are you now?", I whisper although I've seen her in a sight,
her hair a nest of curls, so fair it's almost white. -Cirth

Character History

Rebirth (07/13/2016)

I had been dormant longer than I could recall - which, in this case, was literal. When I shook the moss and dirt free from my skin after so many seasons, all my memories were gone. The hermit was gone. The weaver was gone. The scribe was gone.

A group of elves took me in, and there I lived cradled in safety for some time, sheltered from the threats of the world. Without a past, without anything I had taught myself of fighting or locks or magic. Helpless and carefree, protected by the elves. Until one day the vampire came.

He made no attack on the homestead, so they didn't ride out against him. But he watched. Timeless patience. For weeks. My curiosity overcame my good sense, as it does. And so a month later I slipped out one night to gather moon lily and to see him closer. He spoke a name.

Heart in my throat, I fled back towards safety. But when I looked back he hadn't moved. A light coating of pollen dusted his skin from how still he sat all spring. I went back. His skin was pale, inked beneath with dark veins at his wrists. Closer, he seemed tired. Weak. He needed to feed.

I circled around him, the movement of my passage stirring the air and sending puffs of pollen from his skin. That's when I smelled it. The mustiness of old tomes. The murky flatness of wet ink. The word was pulled from my lips, "Cirth."

Suddenly I remembered everything, as history and memories flooded back with a jolt. I was Corri, and the nameless curiosity in front of me was now Cirth the Pale, scribe of the Kindred. I flung myself into his arms with a strangled cry of delight and shock. A slow smile of contented satisfaction lifted his lips and his hands came up to cradle my neck as we held each other close.

No matter how many seasons I am burrowed in the woods, no matter how long my memories are lost - my scribe holds my past like he holds the history of so much else. He keeps it all safe, held in his heart, unlocked by the simple key of his scent. We are together once more.

Magic crackles at my fingertips, as I murmur against his skin. "Come, love. You've grown weak. Let me hunt for you."

(*poky*) Scavenger Hunt Blue Ribbon

[!OLmND|AC 0 chr:3 1#]
l ribbon
Corri's blue ribbon for winning Scavenger Hunt 2919 is here.

(*clingy*) Hermin! The liberated bug

[!mND|AC 2 chr:3 1#]
l hermin
Once upon a time there was an evil hermit who stole Hermin, (the
cockroach), from his small close-knit community while he was a baby.
This hermit harvested rare "protein party-pies", (as he called them),
from far and wide across the realm for their special nutritional
benefits - however - he wasn't a kind kidnapper, and always sought some
poor sod to befriend in order to get close enough to billet the
dependent abductee until they grew fat and juicy.

Hermin *begs* you to rescue and protect him!!
Hermin leads a charmed life.
Hermin is in perfect, (and delicious), health.

(Wriggling) a woven ring of grass and grubs

[mAGAE|AC 0 dmg:6 hr:7 str:2 1#]
l grub
Examining this ring, you see that several types of grasses have been carefully
collected and then woven painstakingly into a ring. You can identify several -
the lush, verdant green beneath the hooves of the Unicorn in Master's Tower, a
particular strain found only in the Mystic Woods, and a third that reminds you
of the short, leafy variety that grows under the tobacco fields of Emdeeville.
Atop the round band, a small grub wriggles with all its might, trying to evade
the bindings that hold it to the ring. While it isn't a very attractive insect,
it does have a certain charm: deep brown is interspersed with an iridescent-y
sort of blueish gray along its body, and its dark eyes are like tiny jewels.

(Squirming) a pair of oddly fuzzy mittens

[m|AC 6 ma:-15 int:2 wis:5 1#]
l mittens
Just a simple little pair of mittens, eh? Knitted, no doubt. Angora maybe.

No. Nothing so simple.
Some sort of great and terrible sorcery was used. The kind that historians
try to keep quite hush-hush lest the unwary or foolish attempt to recreate
such monstrosities. Truly, only a madman would have made such a thing. The
mind boggles, as you examine the unnatural thing before you: mittens, soft
and warm and luxurious, made of a dark black fur. Unremarkable, Except...
Except for the undeniable fact that THEY ARE ALIVE! They blink at you with
adorable, kittenish blue-gray eyes, and mewl and purr. Truly, this is mage-
gone terribly, terribly awry.

l kitten
A pair of dark black mittens lies here. Except that they just... meowed?

(Croaking) Mowgli, the yellow swamp frog

[mAGAEAN|AC -1 dmg:5 hr:6 1#]
l mowgli
A small swamp frog sits here, croaking loudly.

l frog
The Lesser Swamp Frog is easily identified by its musty yellow color,
which blends perfectly with the thick mud found at the water's edge.
Easily identified by the black mask-like markings that run over its
eyes and by its distinctive chirp-like croak, it is most often found
in the homes of wizards, hedge-witches, and hermits of ill-repute.
