Personality: Professional. Cunning. Observant. Patient. Quick-Witted.

As a trained Antivan Crow, Mireia hides behind a façade of many faces. Those who witness her true, far more serious visage, are often unfortunate enough to in fact be visited by their Angel of Death. Chosen for her Elvish Beauty and gift of alluring voice, she has no qualms with using her female attributes to seduce her mark. While her silver tongue can be persuasive and incite the confidence that her daggers will soon strip away.

As just another pawn for the crows though, Mireia has indeed suffered an identity crisis. After all, she has over the years, lived many lies. Sometimes it is far more entertaining to be Esmerelda the Buccaneer, than it is to be Mireia the Orphaned Crow. Her skewed perspectives on life and death have at least confirmed one aspect of her true personality; her obsession with fate and fortune. At times, she is both dare devil and pleasure seeker, in whichever means necessary. Sometimes, life is a great joke, other times, it is death who has the final, far more serious laugh. In fact, one might wonder if her laughter is ever genuine, or if she is merely reciting another song. Is she ever truly pleasured, or does she feel nothing?


Backstory:
One only needs to hear the accent upon Mireia's tongue, to instantly know that she hails from Antiva: The north eastern trade nation of merchant Princes and a broken line of Kings. But far more importantly, it is the home of the most deadly assassins in Thedras. So deadly and famous are the Antivan Crows, that not even the Qunari dare to tread on their soil.

Born an unwanted love-child in the Antivan City Alienage under a much different, forgotten name, 'Mireia' experienced a City Elf upbringing that lasted only six years under her parent's roof. The father, who frequented the tavern far too often, one day fell to the desperation of selling his children to 'slavers', all three of them. Times were hard, especially in the Alienage. Money was scarce, especially in the hands of an alcoholic. The slavers just so happened to be agents of the crows, who specialised in recruiting orphaned children to train as elite assassins. The orphaned siblings were of course separated, and to this day, Mireia has not encountered either of them. Or perhaps she has, but neither no longer recognise each other?

Forced into the Crow training, both the beauty and downfall of being a female assassin in Antiva, was that Antivan women had strictly defined roles. They were considered pure and delicate, and certainly not allowed to participate in combat, among other things. Who would expect the pretty elf bard to wield such a deadly dagger? Yes, Mireia was not only training to deliver a killing backstab, but to also more generally entertain. In a way, fate and fortune had smiled on her. She received an education beyond her Alienage roots, while the Antivan whores tutored her in the Arts of pleasing others to please one's self.

At 13, she was finally ready to work. Simple tests really; thieving jobs and small tasks. By 15, she was an accomplished pickpocket and good with the gambling games. Sometimes she would even dress as a boy. When she came of age though, her exploits advanced, and the jobs she received begun to take more advantage of her Elvish assets. Aged 20, the crows sent her overseas. At first, to study on board a ship to adopt the identity of a pirate merchant. Then, to complete her mission in Ferelden under a disguise she would use again and again.

Over the past five years, she has waited to be called back home, and longed for Antiva again. But the crows keep sending their scrolls, and she has found herself lingering far too long in muddy Ferelden. First, in Amaranthine City, then, in Denerim. She flies like a true Crow, and disappears without a feather to trace. By her fifth year however, she wonders if the Crows will ever ask her to return. Especially with the news of the Blight on the horizon, she longs evermore for the smell of warm leather and the sound of rattling merchant pouches. One mark in particular leads her to Lothering, of all the rotten places. A hideaway who owes the Crows; a fitting place to hide as not even Mireia wants to set foot there. But she does, and entirely at the wrong point in time. A whirlwind of events leads to her being set-up, and confused, for just another elf slave. So she's swept up in the Battle for Ostagar, serving the human soldiers. At the brink of battle, fortune smiles on her again. She slips away, and a good thing that she does! Else she would not be alive to engage in the next chapter of her life...

Okay, so as soon as only half the approved characters are Human Warriors, we can start. :P
So one more non human warrior and we can start the meeting in the Koncari Wilds/woods outside Ostagar.

If that's a little rushed, Pearl, I'm not sure I'd be able to handle the sheer awesomeness of a character you took all the time you needed with.  :D Also, hooray for another Elf.

Looks for for the most part, but I believe there may be some missing prerequisite spells!

~I think its a bit like this:

Blood Magic
Winter's Grasp -> Frost Weapons -> Cone of Cold -
Flame Blast -> Flaming Weapons
Group Heal - Revival
Heal -> Rejuvenate -> Regeneration -> Mass Rejuvenation -
Vulnerability Hex
Weakness

Oh, we're actually going by the game?  I thought we were just supposed to use common sense.

Hmm, this'll be...

"Father was an apostate mage. Mother was an elven whore. Raised in a brothel for only three years. Father came back to get nookie, instead he got a baby. The man seemed uninterested until the babe showed promise to magic. Stolen by the cover of the night by his pimp father. He was taught many things by his father, apostate tricks and ways to hide. At fourteen his father was killed and he was alone."

Rofl!

Why does that sound so funny to me?

Personality:restless, but calm and calculating when and if she focuses on something. She is often quick to anger where humans are concerned.

Backstory: She was born into an alienage. Her mother and father taught her the art of being a good thief. How to steal from the humans who had taken so much from them. One night her mother left the alienage and didn't return. Stories of some human raping and killing her mother came back to her. It left Akiranth reeling, she wanted to go and avenge her, but her farther talked some since into her. No matter how stealthy she was going to kill the human. It would look bad for the alienege and have some poor elf hung by the end of it.

It was then Akiranth decided she had enough of the Alienage. She had heard stories of a place where elves lived in the woods, the dalish. She took off that nigh to go find them. She wondered through forest for weeks not finding anything, when she began to think that what she had heard must have been rumors one of the dalish found her and took her back to the others.

The dalish excepted her into the group. She tried to forget her past life, and live a new more peaceful one here.

Looks good so far dolly, just missing something for appearance? And if you'd like you could add something into the backstory concerning why she's at the Koncari wilds/woods around Ostagar when the game starts.
