Character’s greatest joy in life:
Character’s greatest fear: Letting down her homeland, or worse, her An’da and Min’da
Why? Grinthey loves her parents and Steelhaven more than she loves life. And she loves life a LOT.
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil? This is difficult, but I’d have to say… if her family were exiled from Steelhaven for whatever reason might occur, it would break her heart and tear her in two.
Character is most at ease when: Chilling with her pet bird, Gully, and having a snack.
Most ill at ease when:
Enraged when: She’s enraged when she feels someone isn’t paying proper respect to someone of status, or when someone insults her bird.
Depressed or sad when: Grinthey is saddest when she feels like she isn’t doing as well as is expected of her. Not living up to expectations.
Priorities: Family & Homeland
Character’s soft spot: Grinthey, despite being raised by an overprotective father, has a strong interest in weaponry. She will geek out over the all the cool weapons she sees around major cities like Stormwind and Boralus.
Is this soft spot obvious to others? Oh, definitely! She makes no attempt to hide this from anyone but her An’da. Even Min’da knows about it.
Greatest strength: Grinthey’s greatest strength is
Greatest vulnerability or weakness: Grinthey’s weakness is her blind loyalty. No matter what anyone says or does, she is fiercely loyal to her homeland of Steelhaven, and by extension, it’s nobility. The idea that either could possibly be in the wrong is simply foreign to her.
Past failures he/she would be embarrassed to have people know about: Grinthey’s Min’da tried to teach her how to tinker, and things went well… at first. But one day, Grinthey accidentally set her Min’da’s workbench on fire, and very nearly the whole house, due to several bad wires in one of her little practice items. Grinthey was mortified, and to this day, she’s scared of trying to tinker again.
Character’s darkest secret:
Does anyone else know?
Drives and motivations: As mentioned earlier, Grinthey is a people pleaser, and fiercely loyal. Her biggest drive currently is making An’da, Min’da, and her people in general proud of her.
Immediate goals: In the immediate future, Grinthey wants to focus on trying to go to school and improving her abilities, as well as learning plenty of new stuff!
Long term goals: Grinthey’s long term goal is to become a soldier and serve Steelhaven.
How the character plans to accomplish these goals: Focusing on school, right now! She’s going to take as many courses to gain and improve combat skills as she can, and she’s even planning to learn a little magic, if she can! Nothing better than variety.
How other characters will be affected:
Hometown: The Independent Nation of Steelhaven
Type of childhood: Average, for the most part. She was a common citizen growing up, going to a public school in Steelhaven and learning from her parents. Her father has always been a bit overprotective, so she didn’t get to go off and have a ton of adventures on her own as a child, but he did teach her to hunt! This is why she uses a bow- it’s the only weapon she has any training in.
Pets: Gully was originally a family pet, raised up by her An’da to assist his gnomish wife with things too tall for her to reach… like most of the door handles. Grinthey gave him scraps off her plate all the time as a kid.
Most important childhood memory:
Current location: Stormwind University Dormitories
Currently living with: Gully! Which…
Pets: Gully grew up to be rather large for a plainstrider, and he clings to Grinthey the most out of anyone in the family, becoming an emotional support animal of sorts for her. However, he’s become quite the glutton, stealing his master’s snacks whenever he sees an opportunity, sneaking into kitchens and stealing whatever his beak can get on.
Religion: Raised to worship Elune by her An’da, though she’s definitely not as zealous as most Kaldorei are, having been raised in a much more multi-cultural atmosphere.
Occupation: Grinthey is… sort of an adventurer, though really, she’s not that great at it. She gets lost pretty easily.
Finances: Grinthey is usually pretty broke. That being said, her An’da still sends an allowance, and Lady Isbeth has given her some spending money as part of the agreement which allows her to attend school. Maybe she can take a class or two on finances…
Mother: Celxi Skystrider, formerly Celxi Manasprocket
Relationship with her: Grinthey loves her Min’da dearly, and despite her sporadic work schedule, they’re rather close. She quite enjoys watching Celxi work, admiring the attention to detail her Min’da puts into everything she does.
Father: Nydalor Skystrider
Relationship with him: Grinthey loves her An’da just as much as she loves her Min’da, though she wishes he would be less worried about her all the time. Nydolar, worries, admittedly, that because of her gnomish genes and smaller stature, Grinthey might not be strong enough to stand up in a serious fight, so he has sheltered her as long as he was able.
Siblings: Aeris Skystrider
Relationship with them: Missing in Action long before Grinthey's birth, presumed deceased.
