Elesh Norn

"We will perch and wait for your downfall."

0 · 502 views · located in Rome

a character in “Time for the God-Emperor to fall.”, as played by Vestiline


Name: Elesh Norn
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Race: Harpy
Appearance: Harpy form
Human form
Personality: Elesh is a woman of two worlds. Among her own kind and those who are against the 'God-Emperor' is very kind hearted to those who need it, including children and the wounded. To those faithful the the Emperor, she is cold and dangerous and is said that those who cross her are never seen again. In reality, they are lured and drowned in the sea. Most of the time, she is a woman of few words, preferring to perch and watch then to confront in person.
Abilities: Like all harpies, her song can hypnotize most men (usually those who have a strong enough will or simply smart enough to plug their ears can evade the song). However, she is also skilled in stealth in both forms, fighting in close quarters when need be and her feathers can harden and become very sharp knives if need be. (yes, they grow back in time.)
Weapons: Her talons and claws in both forms, and a dagger in human form.

History: Elesh is from a colony of Harpies that have lived in Rome centuries before the 'God-Emperor' came to power and have lived in relative peace during that time. When the Emperor came to power, he nearly drove the colony to extinction for their brightly colored feathers and talons. Since then, their numbers have bounced back to near their original numbers, but have lived the life of thieves and assassins to live even though barely any are slaves for the sheer reason of none of the emperor's guards and solders not being able to catch them and the eventual leaving them alone. So it is common knowledge that it is rare to find a harpy of Roman descent to be loyal to Him. Most keep it to themselves and are very difficult to distinguish from other harpies anymore. Elesh is a future matriarch of her kind because of her plumage and has earned the nickname of the 'ghost phoenix of Rome' because of her elusive nature and (at least none of the loyalists at present anyway) can get a good look at her. She is also responsible for the smuggling out of many avian slave from the Colosseum at random interval and leaves messages for those others to see her.

So begins...
