Name: Nashira Nickname/Alias: Lady Nashira, High Priestess Occupation: High Priestess, Diplomat Age/Birthdate: 47 Apparent Age: N/A Gender: Female Race: Human
Height: 1.68 m / 5' 6" Weight: 74 kg / 163 lbs
General Appearance: Nashira's skin is a rich golden brown with a sheen to it despite her age, though the signs of her years are more than evident on closer inspection. She has a voluptuous hourglass figure with wide hips and a well-endowed chest, her curves having a soft fullness to them that gives her a much more mature appeal. Her body is riddled with various types of body modifications with the most immediately obvious being multiple ear piercings and a small nose stud, but also has markings carved into her skin on various parts of her body and a tattoo of her tribe's symbol on her back.
Her face has aged very well and retains much of its vitality save for the onset of wrinkles, though they remain largely flattering and give her a more mature kind of beauty. Her face is oval in shape with a slightly pointed chin and rounded cheeks, her lips thick and luscious but with the bottom one fuller than the top. She has a long and thin greek nose with no depression at the root and a slightly protruding tip at the end. Her eyes are a dark olive green peppered with specks of brown, distinctly almond-shaped and crowned by thick shapely brows. Her hair goes down past her waist in tousled silky waves which have the appearance of having been gently played with, parted just left of centre but broken by thick untamed locks which cross over it to either side. It is a deep blue black in colour with white streaks running through it particularly around her temples.
Nashira dresses in very modest attire as she prefers to make her standing felt through her personality rather than relying on fanciful articles of clothing to feign importance. She usually wears a simple sleeveless dress coloured in earthly hues, slinky and flowing loosely over her curves but with slits along the sides to further accommodate her ease of motion. She prefers to remain barefoot whenever possible and will only settle for loose sandals if she has no other choice, the soles of her feet somewhat rough and hardened from years of walking on them bare. When travelling she will also wear a thick cloak over the rest of her clothing and carry a simple wooden staff.
Dagger - Nashira's only real weapon is a simple kris dagger with a handle of dark polished wood, concealed in a sheath of tooled leather strapped to her thigh and kept out of sight. It is not always on her person however seeing as she usually relies on her bodyguards for protection.
Staff - A simple wooden staff Nashira uses for walking that is not intended for use in combat, but is sturdy enough to be used as a makeshift weapon in the off chance such a need arises.
Carried Possessions: A simple belt around her waist onto which a pouch is attached to carry an assortment of items she requires on her travels.
Personality: One could ask what Nashira is like. And then one could ask what she is really like. Two very different questions, but only the former will be answered here.
Her very presence exudes sensuality and even though she is in her late forties she still has the figure to titillate the senses. It is not something forced or induced by overly revealing clothing or indecent behaviour but rather a part of who she is. It manifests through the way her hips naturally sway when she walks, the way she talks and carries herself, her gestures and mannerisms, even the way her eyes look at you. When she enters a room her presence is immediately felt by everyone present. Her role as ambassador of her tribe and diplomat requires a great deal of travel among the lands of Prydden to meet with influential individuals, her personality and appealing nature earning her the trust of these people as well as an open ear to her proposals and ideas.
When one begins to talk to her it becomes quickly apparent that she is a very open person with very few social taboos. She does not show any prejudices in her beliefs and does not discriminate along any boundaries; she is equally accepting of all people and is very unlikely to eschew or shun an individual on any grounds. Nashira shuns traditional values such as monogamy, marriage, and chastity, believing that love and intimacy is something to be shared freely between individuals. She sets no limits on what is permitted in expressing this intimacy and as such does not believe that any deviances exist. On further scrutiny her diplomatic agenda is revealed to seek peace and unity between the nations so as to ensure stability and progress, as well as a general loosening of moral laws such as those concerning sexuality and substance use which stem from the more conservative values she rejects.
History: Nashira hails from a rather obscure village hidden deep within the forests of Emery. Little is known of her people save that they choose a more rustic way of life without modern comforts, leading simple existences in a communal society that favours the whole over the individual. Nashira was appointed the tribe's new high priestess during her mid thirties after the passing of the previous holder of that title, which essentially designates her as the leader of her people with the power to make any and all decisions concerning the tribe. Ever since her ascension to high priestess she has made it her goal to use her influence to work towards forging alliances between the lesser nations of Prydden, as well as recruiting the aid and support in her endeavours of various notable individuals both from Emery and Selton.

[Note to Prydden participants: As notable as Lady Nashira is she prefers to keep a low public profile and only moves within certain circles, making it highly unlikely that anyone whom she does not know herself will have knowledge of who she is.]
