Name: Azura (Ah-zher-ah)
Nicknames: Blue, Fairy. (Fairy is used only by her father.)
Sub-Race: Aura Master (See training thread, assignment 17.)
Eye color: A slate blue color starts on the outside, then gradually fades into a dark blue as the color heads to her pupils.
Hair and Hair Color: Azura wears her hair with it parted down the middle, it falls to her chin, then stops. It starts as a sky blue and shifts into a cerulean blue, going down from her part to the tips. The cerulean blue starts about a inch from the end of her hair. (Yes, this is her natural hair color.)
Charms: There are three silver metal charms in her hair, hanging from a gray leather strip, woven into her hair. There is silver thread forming an X in it, the strip of leather is three inches long, and it ends at the start of her cerulean blue tips. They are in the shapes of leaves, two are next to each other on her right side, and the last one is on her left. The two on her right are staggered; one is positioned lower than the other. These two tend to hit each other when she moves, since they are on the same band. The charms are normally two inches away from the sides of her face on both sides.
Height: 5’ 3” (Read as “Five foot, three inches” tall.)
Weight: 129 lbs
Birthday: April 4th
Weapons: Her father gave her a knife for her protection. The steel blade is five inches long and an inch and a half wide, the rectangular hand guard is three inches long and an inch wide. The handle is wrapped in dark brown leather and is three inches long, it ends in a half metal sphere with a leaf carved in it. (Temporary weapon, given to her at the start of Forested Meeting.)
Waterfall’s Guidance: The whole staff looks like a snake, bending slightly all over. It’s five feet long, with thin vines carved into the dark brown wood, which go almost the entire length of the staff. The whole staff has a rough texture from the bark. There is one large spiral, which spans four inches long from the bottom. The staff's width is two inches long in diameter, before tapering slowly to the tip.
The slate blue colored leather is wound around the center of the staff, the whole thing is about six inches long, wide enough for her to hold the staff in both hands from the leather band. There are four leaves hanging from thin branches at the top of the staff, staggered, while forming a square if viewed from the top of the staff. The leaves are level with the one on the other side, while the next two are two inches lower on the staff.
The vine carvings glow a light sapphire when Azura holds it, but changes to a normal sapphire when she is using her aura skills. The staff mainly makes it easier for her to use her aura skills, since it is charged to her aura itself. It is also hard to break or cut when Azura is holding onto it.
It is held onto her back by a band of leather, which a vine on the back moves automatically to grab the staff when Azura’s not using it.
* Waterfall Elder also charged the staff partially, so now it can follow Azura, mostly assisting her with learning about her aura and earth manipulation skills.
(Given to her by Waterfall Elder, in the character fiction; Encountering Waterfall Elder.)
Armor: Azura wears a pair of light gray-brown leather gauntlets. Her fingers and thumbs are uncovered starting from the first joint and moving up to the tips. It covers the top of her hand, wrist and arm, up to her elbow. The leather that makes up her gauntlets is a combination between soft and hardened leather. It’s held on by two leather straps, one which starts about half an inch from her wrist, while the second is an inch away from her elbow. The two bands are about three inches apart from each other.
Appearance: Her strange blue hair fell into her pale skinned oval face, as her head was tilted down. Azura’s two toned eyes seem to be focused on something else, other than the river below the tree branch she was sitting on. Her nose was just an unnoticeable bump on her face. Azura’s pale colored, small lips moved as she muttered something, but no sound came out. The teen’s shirt was a dark blue with sleeves that ended right at her leather gauntlets. Her jeans were a faded blue, and were starting to fray at the bottom of the legs. The toe of her gray sneakers just managed to poke out from the strings of her jeans that encircled them. Azura sat with her back against the trunk of a strong oak tree, then let her right leg hang down from the branch as she watched a couple of leaves fall into the river. The teen’s clothes were somewhat loose on her, and covered her thin, yet strong frame well. She actually looked like a boy somewhat, due to she had a flat chest because of her active lifestyle, but she wore a sports bra anyway.
Personality: Azura is shy and tends to be a little antisocial. She is kind of stubborn and can hold grudges for a while. She is kind of annoyed that other people tend to stare at her because of her hair color. She is wary of people and it takes her a while to trust someone. Tends to be cautious in a fight, but can become a little aggressive once in a while. Around others, she tends to hang in the background and rarely talks. When around family, Azura is caring, and talks more.
Strengths: Azura is agile, and able to move in a forest well, by hopping from branch to branch. Knows about weapons from her father, who is a blacksmith, and knows how to use them. She can read basic body language. Knows how to use the environment around her. Knows how to swim, and can hold her breath for a while.
Weaknesses: Due to her weight, she is easily knocked down and can be thrown. Azura is slightly afraid of fire. She isn’t very strong, and dislikes being close to an opponent. She gets lost in thought, which makes her easy to attack. Somewhat of a coward in a fight. Tends to be an easy target, since she prefers to be alone.
Aura: Her aura is sapphire blue, with leaves spinning around her. The leaves form a column around her a bit taller than Azura's height. There are two sapphire blue vines coiled around both arms, one on each. (See assignment 17 in her training thread.)
Her aura's elemental alignment; Nature/Earth.
Due to her aura, Azura is strong against certain elements, and weakened by others.
She is strong against earth, ice and electricity.
Weak against fire, wind and water.
Azura also receives damage from light and darkness based attacks, but she's basically neutral against these two types.
* She only can see a brief image of the attacks, most last for a couple of seconds.
Shroud: Azura outstretches her arm towards the opponent, and a blue circle flashes around the target. A short while later, dark blue vines spring out and cover the enemy in a net. Designed to block the target’s vision and movement for a short time. The vines can be broken with enough force or by using a fire based attack.
Elder Wall: She raises her arms in a defensive X manner and three to six blue oak trees appear in either a circle around her, or in a line in front of her. Protects her from projectiles and physical attacks. Disappears quickly, but she can force them to stay. Can be destroyed if enough force is used on one tree, which causes all of them to disappear.
Leaf Dagger: Azura swipes the air horizontally with her arm. Up to eight light blue leaves appear around her, then fly out in front of her in a straight line. The leaves are scattered and fly in a slight curve. They can only cut whatever is in front of them. This attack is easily dodged by ducking or jumping away from them, or destroyed by using a fire attack.
Thorn Edge: Azura focuses a bit, and is able to form a blade of aura around an object she's holding, mostly used with a branch or her knife. She can make a sword blade, a scythe, or a spearhead.
* She can see this skill, for some reason.
* Has only used it with a branch so far.
* Learned in Assignment 15 in her training thread.
Earth Manipulation - Azura can focus her aura to move the earth around her, most of the attacks have sapphire blue vines running around them to show that she’s moving the earth. It mostly involves her pulling up walls of earth to defend herself, but she can push them away to attack with. Azura also is able to trap an opponent in a coil of earth, but isn’t able to keep a hold of a struggling opponent. The more distance from her to the earth object she wants to use, the more strain it puts on her. She can also drain herself of energy from using the earth too much. (Learned in her training thread, Assignment number 20.)
Healing - Azura is able to heal wounds, mostly shows itself as a sapphire blue vine that wraps around the injury. She can use this in battle, but it is severely slow. It can speed up after a fight, but mainly reduces the wound(s) to a visible scar if minor. If more severe, it may heal it to a smaller wound, which would take more energy to heal.
* Azura is only able to heal minor wounds with this skill, so far.
(Learned in her training thread, Assignment number 21.)
Azura woke up just like every other day. She could hear her father, a blacksmith, clanging away with some weapon on his anvil again. Two leaf charms in her hair clinked as she stood up, sunlight was starting to drift into her room through the white curtain in her window. After getting dressed, the teen walked down the hall to the right, ending up in her father’s workshop. He was bent over one of his furnaces, and blew into it. A cloud of soot filled the air around his head. Thankfully, the furnace wasn’t on, Azura chuckled at the sight. Her father’s long, dark brown hair had a blotch of gray in it. “Dad, are you alright?”
“Eh? Oh, good morning Fairy. I‘m fine, just didn‘t move my head back fast enough.” His voice sounded a little gruff, but it had a kind tone to it.
She laughed again. Her father stood at around six feet tall and was thin, but he was really strong, and appeared to be around his late thirties/early forties. His long sleeved maroon shirt had black specks on the sleeves, those happened when he heated up metal and struck it with one of his hammers, and the sparks and hot metal flecks tend to hit them. He wore his black apron as usual, she’s never seen him without it on, in it he kept a smaller hammer and other tools and items. His black jeans were underneath thick leather chaps, which were short and only covered the front of his legs, down to his knees. Her father always wore leather shoes, which looked like combat boots, but they were for protection against sparks and accidental sword blade drops. “Out to the woods again, Fairy?”
“Yes. Be careful, Dad.” Her voice had a little hint of worry in it. The teen left her father to continue his work, immediately pounding away on the piece of metal in front of him. The woods that she headed to were right in their backyard.
The workshop they were standing in was made out of oak, which was lined wall to wall with various weapons, mostly swords and their various blades. The swords were hung up by wooden pegs, the tip pointing downwards, while most blades sat on shelves. The floor was made out of a gray stone, who’s identity has been worn away over time. Most customer’s weapons went on a specific shelf near the large, entrance. The workshop was one of the five in the town, but this one was a little bit out of the way. The workshop’s name on the sign, was one that her mother had come up with, ‘Eternal Phoenix’.
The town, Iron Leaf, was a small town with only thirty people living in it. Most others were wanderers or various swordsman who pass by. The residents of Iron Leaf knew about Azura, and didn’t mind the fact that she looked strange because of her hair color. It was the visitors that mostly paid attention to her, they just called her “Blue.” She just ignored them though, and went on her way.
In the woods, Azura felt a lot better, the Elders instantly greeted her as she walked through the tree line. The Elders were the large and old trees that populated most of the forest, they were the ones whose leaves touched the sky. A couple of saplings were strewn about the forest floor, the teen kept an eye on all of them. She spotted one that had branches that were starting to droop, and there are no willow trees here. The blue haired female went down to the river and found the hollow stick she had fashioned into a bucket of sorts. Filling it with water, she made her way back to the drooping young tree, and poured the contents around it.
Azura turned to the tree closest to it and spoke, “Can you keep an eye on this one, Elder?” The wind moved through the forest, countless numbers of leaves shook in it. The teen smiled, “Thank you.” The blue-clad female could hear the trees talk, but it wasn’t through words. She could sense how the trees felt through the wind that blew through the leaves, then she formed it into words for herself. She wandered about the forest a little differently than normal people would. Azura was able to leap from branch to branch in order to move about the woods. She practiced this everyday, and was very good at it. If she missed a landing, she could grab a branch that she was about to fall past, and save herself from hitting the ground.
The blue haired female’s leather gauntlets helped to keep her hands from becoming raw from the daily climbing that she did, her sneakers showed signs of wear, but they held up to what she put them through. Azura sat on a branch, holding on to it with her hands and feet, she would have looked like an animal to a passerby, by the way she was crouched. Looking into the tree tops, she could tell it was almost noon. She pushed off of the branch and landed on a lower branch in a pine tree, and repeated her jumping from the tree limbs until she felt safe to let herself fall to the ground. “Goodbye.” The teen smiled for a minute, then made the walk back to her home and her father’s workshop.
Azura stopped in her tracks about five feet from the backdoor to her father’s workshop. Normally she would still hear various clanging coming from it, but not this time. The blue-clad female heard someone talking, and it wasn’t her father’s voice. The door was open as she slowly approached the threshold. Looking in, she saw a person fighting with her father. By his outfit, which included a chainmail shirt he wore, she guessed he was a visitor to the town. The visitor was stronger than her father, who was nearly kneeling on the floor.
“Leave my father alone,” her voice came out a serious tone, which kind of startled her. The attacker looked up, and threw her father on the ground. He was holding a sword blade, which looked chipped and had a faint smear of a dark substance on it. She stood her ground and watched him walk towards her, she spoke again in the same tone, “Leave, now!”
He sneered, “Make me, Blue girl!” The armed fighter charged her, while Azura only swept her right arm at him. She saw two odd, blue leaves in front of her for a minute, then she saw the man become cut by some invisible force. He looked at the cuts along his shoulders and upper arms, then at the blue-clad female in absolute shock, “Wh-What was that?!”
She didn’t know either, but didn’t bother to show it. The armed warrior dropped his weapon and backed up, as she continued to stare at him, she stepped closer though. He finally gave up the staring contest, and left the workshop. The teen broke her glare and half ran to her father, who was sitting up now, “Dad, are you ok?”
He rubbed the back of his head, “Yeah, just one of those young kids, an unruly one that one was. Nearly hit me with one of my hammers before grabbing a blade.” She smiled at her father, “I guess I got to get back to work now, don’t you worry, Fairy.” He chuckled as she helped him off the ground.
“Ok, Dad…” her voice trailed off in thought as she began to walk to her room again, What was that, and how did he ended up cut?
