Description

Name: Aliana Chevaleux
Alias: Aria Balladé
Age: 24
Race: Human
Significant Relations: Arrow Flight, Oriel Garcia, Kirae Tzilia; The Patronus - allies by association with Arrow.

Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 128 lbs
Overall Appearance: Proud and fiery in both manner and appearance, Aliana looks every inch a leader and holds a commanding presence. Her red hair is fiery and difficult to tame, falling to her shoulders in wavy locks, and her eyes are a vibrant forest green that most often clearly display her emotions. Aliana dresses practically - in times of conflict she usually wears leather armour almost constantly over basic, tough clothing; more recently, however, she has taken to the modern clothing she has access to via Wing City, jeans and tops and the like. Aliana abhors over-decorative clothing, and would never wear a dress if she could help it. Aliana's build is a slim one, but with evident upper body muscle necessary to wield weaponry. Her fingers are calloused from spending most of her life playing stringed instruments.

Personality: There is little that is restrained about Aliana; she is vocal, passionate and emotional in matters that concern her, and while she is a rational person most of the time these aspects can cause her to overflow into less than sensible words or decisions. Incredibly honourable, Aliana expects as much in her companions, and will make a point of demanding it should they fail to meet these expectations. Though honourable, Aliana is not naive. She knows that in war, and in conflict, difficult decisions have to be made that are not necessarily morally upstanding - however, she will not compromise her values. If she believes that an action is going too far, she will have no part in it and will oppose it vehemently. Slow to trust, but trusting enough in her brother and other former companions that she will put faith in their judgement also.

Skills and Talents:
  • A talented singer and music player, as to be expected from a bard.
  • Poetic and talented with weaving words, as also to be expected from a bard.
  • An expert archer and dual-dagger fighter, and capable with a longsword.
  • Nimble and capable of stealth should it be required.
  • A skilled horse rider.
  • Ambidextrous.
  • Good with money, organisation and 'thinking ahead'.

Abilities:

  • Bardic Magic: Aliana has access to abilities associated with her bardic talent, including most of those listed in dungeons and dragons spellbooks up to around level 6/7, but that is only as a vague guideline. Those spells provide inspiration for her abilities, but the magic is versatile enough that listing everything she can do would be silly as I have no intention of using her competitively.

Equipment: None at present - after being forced from her home without a chance to pick up anything at all, and driven into unfamiliar territory, Aliana has nothing in the way of physical possession. Thankfully, she had the forethought to take out insurance... Additionally, the following equipment has been provided for her by Sylvire Nasazura, restored from that which has been salvaged in the city of Amarathia.

  • Shortbow and arrows.
  • Dual shortswords.
  • Leather armour.
  • One combat dagger, a belt of throwing daggers.
  • Makeshift lockpicks (salvaged herself, rather than restored by Sylvire).

So begins...

Aliana Chevaleux entered the bar, her steps carefully placed and her eyes set ahead. The woman's hips swayed ever so slightly as she went, not enough to be overtly provocative, but enough to attract a degree of interest. She was clad in leather armour, and carried various bladed implements about her person, but the most unique feature about her was the fiddle upon her back.

The bard made her way to the counter, leaning up against it and ordering a glass of wine, glancing about herself with a decidedly bored expression.

Aliana Chevaleux glanced to one side, taking in Serewyn's observation of her self with calm focus.

"Can I help you?"

Aliana Chevaleux 's eyes widened in alarm as the dagger plunged toward her, and she barely had time to bring her hand down in an attempt to deflect the blade. Her actions prevented the metal plunging into her stomach, but resulted in a nasty gash along her palm, and thigh. Stepping back, the bard drew her shortsword from its scabbard, raising it in a ready stance.

"I see. So you are the assassin, then."

Aliana Chevaleux swept her shortsword across to deflect Serewyn's rapier, deflecting it aside before converting the parry into a counter sweep, moving up from the woman's hip to slash at her side.

Aliana Chevaleux gasped as the assassin's blade penetrated her gut, doubling forwards over the woman's hand, coughing and spluttering. The bard had never been a master of hand to hand combat, instead preferring range. As the assassin withdrew her blade, Aliana slumped to the ground, bleeding profusely from the wound.

Aliana Chevaleux 's vision blurred as she lay, blood seeping from the wound in her stomach. An insidious poison was spreading from the wound, gripping the bard's body with a freezing paralysis, that would develop from such to eventually cut off her breathing, and kill her, leaving her in incredible agony from the wound the whole while.

The bard knew all this, and yet she did not weep, she did not scream. She simply lay there, her eyes slowly glazing.

Aliana Chevaleux coughed, grinning bitterly as she lay. "I made the wrong enemies." she muttered. "Making a living of helping innocents isn't all it's piped up to be. Eventually you cross someone far bigger than your little band, or quest, or self."

The bard cringed, the effort of speech draining in her current state. "Isn't there a healer, or anything? Aren't you going to help me?"

Aliana Chevaleux "You truly need reason to save a life?" Aliana asked, scowling. "Most important sales pitch of my life..." she muttered, before proceeding. "I am a bard. I can recount tales, legends, more than any storybook. Some of my own, some passed down from my mentor. I speak the languages of the dragons and the goblins, I know of their lore. My songs tell of ancient times, before any mortal human was born."

The bard spluttered, her vision further fading. "Any time now..."

Aliana Chevaleux smiled to Skallagrim. "Thank you." she said, the simple words conveyed with more meaning than many a bardic melody. "I shall enjoy recounting them to your people as I do recounting them to any." she said weakly, her blood soaked hand lifting from the wound as she looked down at it, somewhat dazed to see the wound still present, yet its life threatening potential stunted.

Aliana Chevaleux pulled herself to her feet slowly, despite the freezing of the poison's effects, her movement was still restrained by it, and the wound. Glancing around with intent to try and make it to a hospital, her eyes instead fell on Mr. Ious' array of healing items.

However, due to the rather severe nature of the woman's wounds, and her inexperience with first aid, in order to achieve suspension of disbelief, she decided that a hospital was indeed a better option, and she staggered from the bar with that aim.

Aliana Chevaleux slipped into the bar, fully cloaked and hooded. The shadow the hood cast over her face was more than enough to disguise her features, and she clutched the cloak about her form fully - it was plain that this was a figure who did not wish their identity to be known. The only thing to even hint at the person within was a few locks of wavy red-brown hair, visible from the hood.

Aliana Chevaleux silently watched Arrow from the booth in which she sat, remaining cloaked and disguised. She observed Whisper, and Nyx, taking a sharp intake of breath at the latter's appearance. This wasn't good. Or was it? She couldn't decide.

Aliana Chevaleux rose, still cloaked and hooded, and repositioned herself leaning against a wall with a good view on the trio whilst remaining inconspicious. The woman's hands seemed to move within the fabrics of her cloak, as if gripping something.

Aliana Chevaleux 's eyes flashed beneath her hood, and quietly she began to hum. This melody was below the hearing of the trio themselves, but should they be sensitive to magic, they would sense a slow but steady build up within the cloaked figure off to the side of the bar. Of course, this was normal in the bar, and would likely not raise comment.

Aliana Chevaleux chose this moment to reveal herself, and took a step forwards, throwing back her hood to reveal her long flowing red-brown locks and casting her eyes down on Arrow.

"Having some trouble there, brother dear? Art thou at the mercy of the beast, subject to its foul workings and monstrous desires? Surely the great Arrow Flight, Captain of the Silver Hand and champion of the resistance, slayer of dragons, manticore, hydras and countless dark beasts without name, challenger to the dark gods' plans, is more than a match for this?"

Aliana's voice was melodious and song-like, every word pronounced with precision unique to a singer. "Perhaps you are in need of a little aid, brother dear?"

With this, Aliana turned, the object beneath her cloak making itself known as a crossbow, and the bard loosed several bolts towards Nyx herself. Even as she did so, she was bursting forth into song. -c-

Aliana Chevaleux "Hither to me, misguided soul, mind clouded with doubt and soul troubled by pain - for what thy thinks is true for sure, is not, is false, a lie of unpalatable proportions! Though I myself know little of your plight, what's clear to me to see, is this temptress with whom I now dance has much to answer for, not to I, but to thee. The lies she spouts like water from the clearest stream, like a rainbow from the sky may seem at first a beautiful truth, but you must see that beneath the skin, the stream is poisoned, and the rainbow doth bring the rain."

All of this was directed towards Whisper herself, for Aliana had been listening into the conversation enough to figure out what was going on. "Now brother dear, I do request of thee, if thou might find it in thy capability to rise from thy predicament, bring aid to me? From what you hath indicated of this creature, this temptress foul and tricky, I shall surely soon be upon the floor besplattered, a mess most red and sticky..."

Aliana Chevaleux spun to the side, practically leaping from her place, her acrobatic movements sparing her from the lightning (thanks to Whisper's shield delaying it - because nobody can move faster than light unaided) but not the wind, which picked her up and cast her backwards, where she landed with a thud near to Arrow, cursing under her breath as she pulled herself upwards, bruised and battered but ignoring the pain.

Aliana staggered over to Arrow's collapsed form, and attempted to drag him into a booth, using her limited bardic magic to form a bright orb of light to banish any shadows in their immediate vicinity. That might buy them a few seconds... but it would do little else...

Aliana Chevaleux took a deep breath, before sticking her head out of cover for a few moments to lift her crossbow up and fire off another bolt towards Nyx, hoping to catch her by surprise with the assault before ducking back into cover. The bard eyed the distance to the door. There was no way they would make it before the demoness killed them horribly...

Aliana Chevaleux cursed profusely - though somehow even managing to make the profanities sound melodious and graceful - as the wolf approached, and drew out one of her shortswords, darting to one side to clear the booth she was hiding behind in order to better meet the charge with the blade. Unprepared for Sathri's leap, Aliana blinked, halting in her strike and falling back slightly.

Aliana Chevaleux took a step back, free hand snaking outwards slowly towards the table, as if for support. Without warning, however, the bard gripped the back of one of the chairs, and tossed it forcefully towards Nyx's wolflike form to distract her, before darting forwards. The bard let out a single cry before descending on the wolf with her sword, a strong downwards thrust towards its neck. Aliana was hoping to end it there, but should the strike miss, she would immediately leap backwards with nimble-footed grace, hoping to escape the answering blow.
