Day 21

What symbol would your character choose to represent themselves?


A tree where the trunk is a potion bottle, the roots are claws and talons, the branches are antlers that form a dreamcatcher in the centre with feathers hanging from them.

Day 22

If your character could travel to any other place/time, where/when would they go?


Maybe back to a time before the world was ending in a new and spectacular way as regularly as the holiday seasons. When the biggest concern was the next meal, not the destruction of the known universe. A time before the corruption of Felwood. A time when Shirala was still alive.

Day 23

Is your character superstitious?


In a world where you travel by portals, fight old gods and demons, wounds are cured by magic and the undead are a frequently recurring threat, what is superstition?

Being a druid, Ana certainly does not disregard the magical and mystical elements of the world. She is, however, a practical sort of creature, and takes no issue with things like the number 13 or broken mirrors, nor does she have much use for lucky charms. Unless they have some form of alchemical use.

She does have issues with various kinds of magic, but that is more about learning from the past and personal and moral preference.

Day 24

What might your character’s ideal romantic partner be?


♫ She needs a hero!
She's holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight ♫

An ideal romantic partner for Ana might not actually exist.

As previously mentioned on day 5, she would be hesitant to consider someone who is not a druid. When shapeshifting comes as naturally to you as breathing, it is hard to understand and be fully understood by someone who is confined to one form. There is also the matter of deeply held core beliefs, such as the duty to protect the Emerald Dream. It has already proven complicated enough in friendships. No matter which way you turn it, Ana will always be deeply linked to the Emerald Dream and a flow of time, space and consciousness that is different from the waking world.

The perfect partner for Ana would be patient and kind, wise and enduring. They would be her equal in battle, even if they would preferably not have the same strengths and weaknesses, but rather skills that fill in each other's gaps. They would not be squeamish or wishy washy or clingy or controlling. They would respect the need for space, but without growing distant. They would be secure enough in themselves to stand their ground when push comes to shove, but without being so rigid that they make ultimatums.

They would challenge her and be challenged by her, driving each other to grow and learn and improve, without being overly competitive, critical or pedantic.

On top of that already very tall order, they would also need to make her feel wanted and appreciated for who she is. She is a very passionate creature, but first, that special someone must ignite the spark.

No wonder she's single.

25

Describe your character’s hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?


Long slender hands that would be the envy of any pianist. Except they've never tried to play a piano.

While Ana has quite a lot of scars, not many of them are on her hands, courtesy of acquiring the majority of them while not actually having hands at all.

At times they are stained from working in the laboratory, though she usually wears protective gloves.

Day 26

Second day of favourites! Favourite comfort food, favourite vice, favourite outfit, favourite hot drink, favourite time of year, and favourite holiday.


Comfort food: It is a bit of a guilty pleasure of hers to eat various small rodents. When she's feeling down, she will sometimes go hunt rats in the tram tunnels. It reminds her of who she is, where she came from, what she was before anyone ever tried to tell her otherwise. Besides, their little bones have a nice crunch.

Vice: Murder? While she doesn't kill for pleasure per se, she does enjoy the thrill of the hunt and staring death in the eye. The stronger her foe, the greater the rush she gets.

Outfit: her birthday suit. Though her branched armour has become like a second skin to her. And she still keeps a threadbare green dress, a comfortable leather hat and a pair of sandals, which was what she wore when first venturing out with Shirala and Ilastar.

Hot drink: Green tea, her own blend. But she also enjoys hot chocolate with whipped cream and a candy cane occasionally in the winter.

Time of year: She has no particular favourite. Every season has its own function and the cycle is an eternal wheel of balance.

Holiday: Children's week. That's how she met Rok.
