Character Information Edit

Background Edit

Most kalashtar feel the conflict and tension inherent in housing two souls in one human body, but for Kalimashtri, this conflict is of an entirely different order: it is an all out war. Kali's mortal body houses a quori soul that fled the dreaming dark with the other renegades long ago, but was touched so deeply by nightmare that its allegiances are torn and its grasp on sanity is tenuous. Though Kali received special training to control her quori soul's unpredictable tendencies, she learned long ago that its nightmarish affinities attract the servant's of the dreaming dark.

Indeed, it is for this reason that Kali no longer resides among her kalashtar brothers and sisters. During her teen years, years when the human soul is torn in emotional tumult, Kali's quori soul underwent violent swings in mood and allegiance as well. And, at the times her quori soul drew closest to nightmare it reached out of its own accord to commune with the Dreaming Dark. This drew the attention of the Circle of Night to her remote monastery in the Adaran Mountains, and their attention proved deadly. A midnight raid by dreamblades put an end to every friend and family member Kali had ever known.

But her quori soul proved both a curse and blessing, or perhaps doubly a curse, for Kali. For, even as it drew the wrath of the Dreaming Dark down upon her, it warned her of the coming raid, its mixed allegiances resulting in the betrayal of all sides. So, Kali was able to flee the raid that destroyed her people, and spent many years on the run. For a time she sheltered among a savage tribe of drow in the jungles of Xen'drik, who took her in after witnessing an impressive display of swordplay and nightmarish magic that she used to battle back a group of lizardfolk shadows. Though she had no love for the dark elves' infighting and savage customs and rituals, she resigned herself to stay among them, figuring it better than endangering the lives of innocents elsewhere by her mere presence. But she was forced to flee again when she felt the approaching presence of a thoughtstealer that had taken over the mind of one of the drow elders.

Traveling alone once more, she redoveted herself to the Path of Light, and to mastering the meditations taught to her by her father and mentor Bhavanarath, to tame the rogue quori soul inside her. She dwelt alone for a time in the shadow marches. But gradually, through intermittent sightings and passing interactions she came to know a local tribe of orcish miners, and grew concerned with their increasingly frequent stories of the disappearances of friends and family members. She could not in good conscience let the harassment of innocent villagers continue. And so, in spite of the danger of attracting the attention of the Dreaming Dark once more, she offered her blade and magics to protect the orcish tribe. And it was through them that she met Lord Rhogar, and his band of adventurers...

Hooks Edit

Appearance Edit

Kali is tall, wiry, and ebon-skinned with hair pulled back in corn-rows that cascade down into long braids. She carries an enormous sword, and wears strange armor, both of drow make, and fashioned out of scorpion carapace and steel. Her stern, impassive face masks the internal nightmare that frequently rages within. Through her exercises though, she has learned to channel their terrifying energy through her armaments and into her armor, and those who meet her often imagine they can hear, ever-so-faintly, a distant wailing and screaming emanating from the blade's keen edge, and moaning sobs from the slack jaws of the scorpion mandibles that adorn her armor.

Judge Comments Edit

Level 6 Edit

Approval 1 Edit

Approval from TwoHeadsBarking:

  • Summary: Not an issue really, but you do a lot of switching between first and third person in your power descriptions.
  • Health: The table doesn't have you at level 6.
  • Tracking: You should probably list how you spent each parcel. I know it can be reverse-engineered from your equipment section, but it would be nice to have it all clearly written out.

Minor issues, so approved.
