Okay, here it is ...
Shazadi dar al-Hajaya dar Rwala dar DulamPlayer:
Priestess and Gifted Seer, part time thief when circumstances require it.Trouble:
Episodes of True Sight, prophecy and visions subject Shazadi to memory or time loss. These blackouts can last several minutes – or several hours. There are also one or two high born residents of Sha’ib that didn’t care for her predictions – or that they came true.Sex:
Pleasure of all kinds, including music, art, sleeping late, sensuality, Player’s OnsOff’s:
Chastity, abuse, cruelty, Player’s OffsRace or People:
Hair: Wavy and black, with sun bleached streaks, often worked in multiple braids and heavy with tribal jewelry.
Eyes: Copper, like a cat’s - a lingering gift from the Jinn blood in her veins.
Height: 5’ 9”
Tall and lithe, Shazadi is water thin like most nomads and muscular, befitting her lifestyle and activities. Her café au lait skin shows both her nomad heritage and a life lived under the desert sun. Long, dark, wavy hair bleached by the sun and braided with traditional ornaments cascades down her back and frames the aquiline features of her face. A scar on her throat mars the smooth line of her skin, but serves as a reminder of the first time the Goddess intervened directly in her life.One Unique Thing:
Shazadi’s body is covered with a series of intricate black tattoos, symbols unique to her clan and the goddess that she is devoted to, Tamarni. Personality:
A hedonist by nature, this inclination is fostered and encouraged by Shazadi’s devotion to Tamarni, the Bedu goddess of fortune, pleasure, cats and shadows. Equal parts insouciant and curious, she is largely driven by the visions the Lady sends her, wandering at the Goddess’ will to do Her bidding and seek out those things that please Her, which has brought her into the path of the highborn both inside and outside the walls of Sha’ib. Neither impress her much. Her sense of morality beyond Bedu laws and Tamarni’s prohibitions is flexible and her duty and loyalty is to the Goddess above all. She is sympathetic to those that share her beliefs, and cats are naturally drawn to her. Possessions mean little to her, but money can buy experiences, such as a sensuously indulgent bath and massage or perfumed unguents to pamper her skin. Even a night in a tavern with a spiced coffee admiring the people around her and listening to beautiful music can be a luxurious indulgence. Skills:
Fortune telling (The Sight - true clairvoyance and a gift of prophecy), knifeplay, (throwing daggers and khatars), desert survival, prayers, stealth.Residence:
When out in the desert, the tent she carries on her camel’s back. When in Sha'ib, a small house in a poorer district that also serves as her place of business.History:
Born in the deep desert to the Rwala clan of the Dulam Bedu tribe, Shazadi was destined for a sacred life the moment she opened her eyes. Their copper color was seen as a sign of favor from their patron Goddess Tamarni, bright and as reflective as a cat’s, in day or night. Only the old holy men and women suspected the girl had Jinn blood in her veins.
By the time she could run with her siblings it was clear that Shazadi was favored by the Goddess. Shazadi ran wild, more like a boy than a girl, getting into all kinds of trouble as her family worked the trade routes. With a natural ability to conceal herself and hide herself away no matter how hard anyone looked for her, she made a habit of slipping away on many occasions, usually to have some sort of adventure and return none the worse for wear. Until one such excursion brought her into the hands of a rival tribe that thought nothing of slitting the throat of a wild girl for the jewelry she wore and leaving her to bleed out into the sand. Only luck brought her into the hands of her family, ostensibly to die. Her wounds were stitched and tended and the last prayers were said as fever took her. It was then that Tamarni came to her for the first time. In her fevered state the Goddess whispered to her and healed her wounds, bringing Shazadi back to life and blessing her with several Gifts in the process.
After that, cats of all kinds, big and small, were naturally drawn to her. She could even approach lions and leopards at oases and watering holes. Her mother found her once asleep in a pile of lion cubs and lionesses. And with this ability came the Sight. After the attack, Shazadi began to have prophetic visions and dreams. At first, she kept them to herself. But when the visions began to come to her when she was awake, the priestess began to take notice and spoke to the girl, and then to her family. With several daughters, her father was more than happy to see his youngest child find a place in the tribe without an expensive bride price. He turned the care of his wild young daughter over to the priestess, and she began her training as a devotee of Tamarni.
Since then, she has followed the ways of the Goddess in all things, letting Her will dictate where she goes and when. When convenient and appropriate, she travels with her tribe; but often she travels alone or finds herself spending time in Sha’ib, where the potential for a wider variety of pleasure is far too alluring to ignore.Equipment:
