Welp, here's the first-draft of my girl. Comments/concerns/criticisms? (She clearly uses a blue stall/recycle deck, with heavy artifact support until she can throw out some heavy direct damage to end the match. How old school!)
Well into her 40's, not that it matters for Walkers.Gender:
Sayla Marker is a young humanoid woman, with the pale skin and elongated fangs that marks one as inflicted with the curse of Vampirism. She stands at a good 5'6" with a lightly muscled body graced with soft skin and plentiful curves. Her long black hair reached clear down to bottom, and is a particular point of pride, as are her soft sky-blue eyes. Numerous tattoos of mystic designs and glyphs are on her body, used as a partial spellbook in addition to the pieces of jewelry she carries that signify various spells and sealed artifacts. If she ever has less than a dozen rings, and severals bracelets and a charm necklace, there's something VERY wrong.Home Plane:
Unknown, possibly Ulgrotha, Zendikar, or Innistrad?Mana Color(s):
Blue/Artifact, splashing RedMagic Specialties:
Sayla specializes primarily in defensive control magics, and utilizing artifacts that she's collected over the years. Her Blue magic counters and manipulates the battlefield, while her artifacts increase her power. She has only a small amount of obscure creatures, artifact or otherwise, and all are primarily defensive, though she has a habit of enchanting them to make them more viable for combat. In the end though, she bides her time waiting for an opening . . . then throws out a big burst of Red magic to end the discussion.Weapons:
Her only real physical weapon is an Ensouled Scimitar, and even that she usually just allows to fight autonomously and protect her while she builds up her mana. She'd rather use sorcery to attack personally, if she has to.Garments:
She doesn't have much that's special. Basic enchanted light armor, and long flowing robes. There's really not much to say here.Other Equipment:
This is Sayla's bread and butter. She has a number of artifacts, including a Blinkmoth Urn, a few mystic gems, and whatnot. She uses these to build up her mana to a level that she can react to . . well . . lots of things! She has a small amount of golems as well to help her while she builds things up.Personality/History:
Sayla is a complicated individual to say the least. Her memories of her early life are fuzzy to say the least, and while she hasn't worked up the nerve to use her blue magicks to dip into them, she knows enough to define herself someone. Sayla hails from a plane where humanity is accosted by creatures of the night, enslaved by all manner of dark beasts. Sayla herself was the pet of a vampire, being carefully groomed and raised to be the perfect minion, before finally being turned into one herself to serve as that vampire's bride. That very night two things happened. 1: Humans rose up in revolt and set fire to the build, attempting to win their freedom. 2: Sayla's spark kicked in from the stress of numerous magics being flung around, and it kicked in EXPLOSIVELY. She doesn't remember what happened immediately afterwords, but she's fairly sure she may have killed her would-be husband, and lost herself in the Blind Eternities before finding her way to another plane of existance.
Since then, Sayla has become a bit of a wanderer, traveling from plane to plane in order to gather knowledge and artifacts of power. She has mostly tapped the Blue, and while she has tapped some Red she used artifacts to make up for the lack of diversity. While she is fairly moral, she also tends to adventure simply because . . well . . too much studying is boring. She's spent time in a handful of Planes already, and has now come to Zendikar to continue her search for rare items of power. Not particularly selfish for the most part, she's more than willing to team up with other Walkers and even non-Walkers in order to solve a good mystery, or find a lost treasure trove . . . though she has a habit of finding some of the rarer treats and ensuring that other people did not realize they were there.
