Oshun has white marks that cover her arms, legs and back. Items: ::Character::Personality:
Oshun's background could be associated much with how she thinks and acts as an individual. Her aggressive trait is one of the reasons for her choice in career, though oddly enough she does not seem to have much of a temper. Her motto is to get a job and get it done quick and easy without many questions involved, because of this she has become quite the favorite for difficult assassination jobs. Oshun's idiosyncratic disposition has made her a favorite amongst her many employers because of her inconspicuous way of killing and relying information to her employers without their identity being dispersed. She has no direct affiliation with the royal court or the barbarians, but her Neutral way of handling things would undoubtedly make her a target. Though being tactful was one of her many traits as an assassin, she couldn't completely agree with conquer and would hope that should could somehow help the Queen in anyway that she could.
Despite all of this, she is quite the compassionate person when it comes to help those that aren't considered rich or well off. She is always willing to help the impoverished farmer trying to make it or the affected widow mother who was trying to feed her many children. This was an attribute that she was very much illustrious about. Oshun is a very quick-witted woman and she prides herself on being able to outsmart a majority of people she comes in contact with. She has found this to be very useful so that she would never get caught while on the job. Outside of her job, she is a dancer with a very eloquent way of speaking. She always felt that her dancing is one of the many reasons she became the assassin she is today. Her hobby has made a her a very adaptable person for different situations.
When it comes to interaction with people on a physical and emotional level, she can be quite the amorous type. She is attracted to both male and female, hermaphrodite or nothing at all, she likes humans and non-humans as well. Graciously, she has never been the type to discriminate love where she could find it. Unfortunately, her relationships don't last a week or two out of bed because of her irrational fear of being hurt or revealed to any enemies she may have accumulated over her years as an assassin, making her unable to trust many people.Biggest Fear:
Being given to her enemies by someone she trusts or loves.Talents/Flaws: Dancing
- shes a very talented dancer and gets a lot of work and contacts through her other means of income, making her a very adaptable and discreet assassin and contact.Poison Making
- Oshun has a knack for making very fatal poisons for some of her harder contacts. If she ever wants to kill a suspect without getting caught, expect that her poisons were the evil doer. Mage:
Maybe - it is unknown what exactly the markings on her body are able to do. She does get pains and visions when she is asleep and indiscriminately.Used spells:
(not available as of yet)History:
In the year 691 PR, Oshun was born to a pair of traders within Cydilla capital. Upon her mothers conceiving, it was thought that she was born of elven blood because of her unusual tattoos on her body. Her parents were unsure of what to make of such a thing. To their knowledge, the parents were one of the few pure-blooded humans within Cydilla. At first, they were apprehensive of bringing their first born home, unsure if she was of magical blood or something completely sinister. After a long talk of what to do with the baby girl, the parents agreed to raise their daughter as normal and pay close attention in case she was in fact an entity to be feared.
She had a fairly easy childhood growing up and her parents were very loyal of the royals of Cydilla. As a child, she was always aware of her markings, but never thought to ask why they existed and where they came from. There was nothing unusual about magic, but there were was a lot unusual with magic within humans that were considered "pure-blood". Oshun often spent her times in the outlying wilds of Cydilla. She had become accustomed to the wild creatures and races that lived off of the the land and often felt that she had a bigger connection with them than the civilians of her city. While taking her daily walk through the wilds and visiting her favorite river, she started to feel an immense pain surge through her body. The markings on her body were responding to something, but she did not know what are where they would lead her. Fearing for her life, she ran home to her parents, keeping the pain she felt a secret as she vowed to never return into the wilds again.
When Oshun reached her mid-teen years, she grew accustomed to dancing like her mother and grandmother before her. While her parents made honest money working as jewel and fine fabric traders, the teenage girl felt that she wanted to go through life in a different direction. During one of her daily walks through the marketplace, she heard the sounds of rhythmic drums in the distance. Following the sound closely, she fell upon a young man playing a beat she only fantasized of. The man smiled and started to play a tune just for her - causing Oshun to dance to the beat so beautifully and effortlessly. Once realizing their chemistry as musician and dancer, the two decided to earn money doing what they did best. Her talent attracted all walks of life and they were constantly being given work for marriage ceremonies, coming of age rites, and other celebrations.
Oshun was entertaining a very well known, and sometimes selfish, trader for his twentieth year on the market and many more (or so he thought) to come. The man was very rude with the girl and made several sexual advances that were rejected immediately. Oshun knew the man was no good and many wanted him dead, but she had never thought to take the matter into her hands. As a precaution, she always carried her homemade poisons with her as a dancer. She didn't trust men to keep their hands off of her after an incident were she almost found herself in a very bad situation without her drummer there to witness and protect. She excused herself as she went to get him a 'drink', where she then tainted the rim with a tasteless toxin at the rim of the wine glass. Smiling upon returning to him, she handed him the glass and continued the belly dance as a distraction to the onlookers. By the end of the session, the man was dead in his chair. The audience was shocked, but none seemed to point fingers at her. The man was rather old and it was said that he was near the end of his years to begin with.
At this opprotunity, Oshun left with haste as to get away from the situation before guards came to question her. While on a long walk back home, she was stopped by a cloaked man offering her a job as an assassin. The man claimed to have known what she had done and commended her on her discreet way of delivering the assassination. Unsure of how to take the encounter, the man continued to try and persuade the, at the time sixteen year old, girl. The man told her that the group of assassin's she would work for were an underground elite dedicated to taking out the many covert and overlooked tyrants within the trader community. Those that were selfish and only did things that would help them and no one else. Accepting the offer, the girl would soon learn how to use her talent as a dancer and poison maker to do the deeds of the assassin's guild she joined. However, for this reason alone she felt that she would never be able to trust anyone outside of the guild. Rarely did she ever find herself in a lasting relationship with anyone other than for a one nigh stand.
When the barbarian king, or so he claimed to be, took over Cydilla, Oshun went underground with her guild to figure out how to claim their home back. Never having affiliated themselves with the royals so closely before, unless it was to do a job they were paid for, they felt the need to help in anyway they could to stop the tyrant from gaining full control. Oshun associated herself with the rebels indirectly and will go through any means to help the Queen get back her kingdom that was rightfully hers. If this means playing the otherside as well, she was willing to do it and avoid the consequences if she could.O/O's: The Ons & OffsEt Ceteras:
