Ein Crowley

"Everywhere you turn there's a war to be won, or a despot to depose. Where's the love and peace?"
Dig The Crazy - Faith Marie


Full Name
Lady Ein Crowley

Little Crow
Bloody Crow



Formerly Crow's Rest

All Ein is looking for is a home






General Description
As pale as snow, Ein's silver hair frames her angular face and presents a violent contrast when tinged with blood. Rarely does her expression belay emotions, rather its a mask of composure. She's rarely seen without her customary attire, a keepsake from Crow's Rest, and her blade is ever by her side. Eyes like sea-glass stare into your soul, though sometimes there is the hint of something darker in those eyes.



Cold, calm, and quiet. Ein doesn't like to express emotion, regardless of the effect that has on others. Protecting her village is her life, and it comes second to nothing to her. The citizens within are all like family to her, but she doesn't coddle family. The beasts of the wilds annoy her, and she prefers not to leave the town unless on business. Others might think she has her nose in the air, but that never bothers Ein. Distrustful to a fault, and more than willing to sacrifice someone for the greater good, one can't help but question just why she's doing all this.

Ein practices being a homemaker in her free time, hoping to one day marry and settle down. Though she's loathe to admit it, her housewife skills could use some work, and when she isn't working as a mercenary, she can be found in her village doing just that. When not on duty, she goes for long walks throughout the town and nearby countryside fantasizing about a different life she might have lived had she not become a soldier.

To fall in love and marry, have children and live a happy life in an idyllic village, preferably before she loses her mind completely to the draw of Blood Magic. She also fantasizes often about what might have happened had she never become a mage, what would her family be like, and would she already be in love?



Blood Mage

Physical Strengths
Ein is an accomplished duelist, capable of wielding twin blades with equal efficacy. Even without magic, her endurance is prodigious, and as such extended engagements are her strong suit. Her cool nature allows her to meticulously analyze a battlefield, drawing up a winning strategy in even the most dire straits.

Physical Weaknesses
Relying on blood magic to shield herself has caused Ein to become rather frail, being weaker than the average person when her magic isn't active. Due to this, alcohol also goes right through her, and once her cold and calm exterior drop, the unhinged broken psyche is all that remains.

Magic Strengths
Blood magic, the internal battery that has always kept Ein alive. Willingness to dip into that forbidden power is her greatest strength, and she often fires off spells that would've taken a suicidal level of mana otherwise. Secondarily, overdrawing on her own life essence sometimes sends her into a violent episode, becoming capable of wielding Blood Magic her conscious mind had otherwise repressed.

Magic Weaknesses
Like most blood mages, Ein turned to this dark path due to her own lack of natural mana. Additionally constant overuse of Blood Magic has already begun chipping away at her sanity, and overdrawing on her own life essence can bring about lapses in sanity coupled with violent episodes, perhaps that's the true reason she never returned to Crow's Rest. Light magic seems to have an increased effect on her, for better or worse, and sometimes triggers her violent episodes

Weapon Skills
A twin sword that separates into dual swords, an extension of Ein's self. As much part of her life's blood as the very blood she wields. Her swordplay is an elaborate dance of the two blades as they sweep together, and apart. Her fights are often awe-inspiring and beautiful, ribbons of blood flecked away from blades moving so fast as to almost be invisible

Protection Type
The officer's uniform that Crow's Rest gave her still offers her some small protection. However her defense is largely thanks to Blood Magic, dispersing force across a wider area, or sealing shut her wound with sutures made from clotted blood. One the blood starts flowing, it's almost impossible to get a clean hit on Lady Crowley



The Story so Far
Crow's Rest has stood for as long as Ein can remember, her family had always protected it with their unique mutation. Everyone in her family was expected to die for the City. Rather than daunted by the task, she embraced it for the sake of the home she loved. As a child, every life lost to the beasts of the wilds haunted her, dredging up terrible nightmares about what lay just outside the city. Once she was of age to hold a sword, her father trained her to succeed him, however he died when she was only Eleven. Still too young to join the guards, she trained with her Uncle to continue her Father's dream. Before long, she joined him in defending the city, and occasionally venturing deep into the untamed country. It was on one of these expeditions that her Uncle was captured by a beast of the Wilds. It was too risky to try and rescue him, so her Uncle pleaded with Ein to run. She swallowed her pride, and retreated, but never returned home. She now lives in a small farming village out in the countryside, defending the peasantry from the same fate that befell her family.

Ein's only meaningful relationship is her village, and the people in it. They're the only family she has left

The door went suddenly open and two tall figures walked in. As they went into the reach of the lights, it was revealed that these are two men, one wearing a mage's robe and a pretty silly hat, while the other one, a real mountain when it comes to height, was wearing an armor made out of some strange material no one in the room could recognize. Both took a seat at one of the free tables, contemplating the warmth and the cozy atmosphere the Jackall had to offer.
β€œNow that's some lovely place, don't you think so, brother?” asked the mage, smirking the whole time. β€œPerhaps I can make it even lovelier. Hey, bartender, tonight all drinks go on me!” he yelled, so everyone present could hear him. β€œNow that's how you attract their attention.” he said quiet towards his companion.
β€œWas it really necessary, brother?” the tall man made himself more comfortable on the table and took off his helmet.
β€œWell, if you want people to notice you, you have to first pique their interest. And that's what I did. You need a job and this place looks better like an orc's yurt, so stop complaining.” the mage also took off the silly hat.
β€œI can't say you didn't pique their interest. I just can't stand all those people looking at me like that.” the warrior noticed too many stares coming their way. This wasn't going to be a peaceful evening, for sure.
β€œWell, I only threw the bait, now I'm waiting for the catch.” the mage didn't see that bothered, smirking a lot. Oh, this evening will be interesting, for sure.
