: Wisp never managed to do anything right. From the start, the woman was born a dusk elf and, thus, was automatically assumed to be naturally gifted in the magical arts. She wasn't, which led to the few other Dusk Elves she knew to scoff and belittle her, while the other elves just saw her as different... and somehow broken. Wisp led a childhood devoted to trying to make friends but ultimately only getting to know people who enjoyed putting her down to build themselves up, she was an easy target and, while she didn't exactly have a happy childhood, she likewise didn't have a terrible one either.
However, as Wisp hit puberty, it was quickly discovered that the magical ability which her parents had feared was latent was actually simply uncontrolled. While Wisp's conscious mind lacked some key mental nuance - some synapse to control and dictate the flow of her mental energies, Wisp's subconscious mind proved itself quite up to the task, and all too often the secret urges, shames, angers, and embarrassments which plagued the young elves' thoughts during her waking hours invaded the dreams of those she most thought about and made themselves all too apparent. Her friends, what few she had, would see the dark secrets which Wisp so ardently sought to keep from them, her tormenters would find themselves in continual nightmares where they were punished for their scornful words and actions, and the cute little elfin maids who Wisp would secretly fantasize about found themselves in passion-filled rendezvouses with the elf.
Many didn't mind. More assumed the dreams to be actual dreams and simply ignored them, as embarrassed about having them as Wisp would ultimately be about sending them. Enough knew the truth, and a shameful truth has a way of spreading. All to soon the rumors of "Wispy the Dream-Rapist" and other such nicknames began to spread around.
At first, Wisp's parents and the elders tried to help her, but as she continued to be obstinately unable to master even the most rudimentary aspects of the arcane, her tutors began to suspect that the problem was not an inability to learn, it was an unwillingness too. As time went on, and Wisp continued to subconsciously extract her nighttime vengances, trysts, and confessions, the demands of the people to do something grew and, eventually, the decision was made to get rid of the unteachable elfling. In one of the most contested decisions in council history, Wisp became the first elf in recent history to be issued a revokable banishment, an order forcing her to leave elven lands until she could control her nocturnal powers.
Leaving her home, the elf began to wander. She stayed fairly mobile, moving from inn to inn, from campground to campground. She never dared stay in one place long for, while the humans would largely be ignorant of her powers, the fact she was the one showing up in their dreams would allow them to catch on awfully quick...Goals:
Wisp ultimately wants to find a way to control her dream-speaking. While she absolutely loves being able to have her way with so many cute girls (and the occasional boy) she still misses her home and would like to be able to be able to turn it off or, even better, to have more control over what actually occurs in the dreams. Personality:
Wisp is naive. She honestly don't quite understand why anyone would be upset about having a steamy sex-dream, and as for the vengeance dream well... those people were jerks! She doesn't really want to hurt anyone and she finds the title 'dream rapist' to be monstrously unfair. She certainly cares more about herself than other people but, who doesn't? Still, she is loyal to others once she determines them to be worth the effort. She tends to think of herself as not very smart and won't really argue if insulted and will often accept the plan of another as inherently better than hers, and she has a bad habit of filling silence with whatever happens to be going through her mind at the moment.Mannerisms
: Wisp has a very very low sense of self-confidence. She tends to fill any awkward situation with a joke and has a natural impulse to avert her eyes rather than look at somebody straight. While she doesn't really understand why her dream-powers are bad, she has accepted that they are since so many people seem to think so, and so likewise accepts any punishment or anger towards her is probably justified. She really likes sugar.Sexual Experience
: She is, technically, a virgin still. While she has had every lewd and passionate exchange with others within their dreams, she has never really gotten physical in the real world. She was once forced to give head to a boy, however, which may be the reason she prefers girls.OOC Notes
: Firstly, the Dreamspeak ability is pretty specific that the dreamer cannot influence the dream, and so any PC (or NPC) affected by Wisp has to consent. Most people are somewhat curious about sex, particularly during their teenage and twenty-something years, and so the backstory takes it for granted that Wisp's targets subconsciously consented, making a situation their conscious mind was shocked and confused to see happening. Still, let me be clear that any PC that would have nothing to do with Wisp will not be dream-mollestable.
Secondly, I realize that Wisp's story seems really focused on her, but let me outright state that I don't expect or even want Wisp to be the star of the show. There is an overarching story here and, if accepted, Wisp's dream-shenanigans would occupy a post or two during time the party was sleeping. I don't want them to slow down the real story, particularly since they would be a story told between two party members while all the others had to sit and wait for it to end.
Thirdly... if you read all this way and are wondering where Wisp's character sheet is: Her name at the very top is a hyperlink :)
