Updated October 2008
Name: Sophi Naya
Height: 4 feet
Weight: 75 pounds
Build: Slender, delicate, but almost childlike in proportions
Hair: Silver, about waist length
Skin: Fair, but not pale
Eye color: Chestnut brown
Clothing/Armor: A long, very pale yellow dress made of light material, loose and flowing with long sleeves. She has one pocket on either side of the dress.
Affiliations: Her good friend, Kasumi Murasaki She has not seen her in at least three years.
The villagers of Leaton, a small, medieval-era technology town where she has settled for the past three years. Sophi has rarely left Leaton since she found it.
Accessories: Sophi has golden ribbon woven through her hair on the far left of her head, and a green cloth bracelet patterned with lavender roses on one wrist. She also carries a piece of flint in one pocket for lighting fires. She may have random herbs in the other pocket, depending on whether she's found any in the wild or not.
Abilities/Skills: Sophi is fairly good at surviving in the wild. She is a vegetarian, so it is easy for her to live off the different plants and fruits that she knows how to find, and she isn't averse to sleeping on the ground.
She is a Healer, and can heal almost any wound, unless it is of magical nature (i.e., a spell cast on someone that does something harmful to them.). She can also neutralize poisons and detect bacteria and viruses. She can fight and cure some diseases and infections, depending on the complexity of the disease or infection.
Sophi is an Empath, and when she opens her mind, she can re-experience what others have experienced, letting her understand them better so she can try to heal emotional damage as well as physical.**
She also has the ability to induce sleep on others.
**Details on Empathy: Sophi's Empathy works in very specific ways. (Abilities that most would consider 'telepathic' are grouped under the term 'Empathy' in her race, also.) If she can physically see a person, then she can open a one-on-one connection with that person and still keep everyone else out with her walls. She can talk to the person through this connection, and it will sound like a literal "mind-voice", in the sense that it will be as if someone is speaking inside your head, with voice tone and quality. She can have emotion in her mind-voice, but she cannot actually project emotion(as in, if she feels scared, the other person will not suddenly feel scared). She can, however, feel emotions from the person she is connected with.
Once she has opened a link with a person, she can choose to sever it completely, or to close a temporary door on it. If she closes a temporary door, then she can later open it again without having to actually see the person at that moment. If long periods of time go by and a closed door is not opened again, then the link falls apart of its own accord.
Sophi can only project emotions through Empathy if she has physical contact with the person, and she can only do it if she does so on purpose. It is not possible for her to accidentally project emotions, since the ability to do so in her race is active, not passive. If she is touching the person, she can also project certain images during Empathy.
Weaknesses: Sophi could be described as frail. She cannot run fast or for long periods of time, and has no notable physical strength to speak of, due to much time at home spent doing sedentary tasks. Because of this, she cannot defend herself very well at all against any sort of attack. Her only defense is to induce sleep on the attacker, which may or may not work depending on the strength of the attacker's mind.
Sophi becomes nervous around any sort of magic, but especially magics that are not based on the four elements(fire, water, air, earth), and is likely to become distressed.
*Disclaimer: She has been exposed to different types of magic over her years in the Dream, but still feels largely uncomfortable around particularly powerful mages. She has grown accustomed to not having to deal with magic much, besides the few resident people with minor gifts in the town, and the occasional traveler staying for the night. The village has been an uneventful place.
Sophi is an easily intimidated person in general, and could be manipulated by someone with the right combination of traits, though she definitely is not an inherently trusting person.
Special Effects: If she is wounded or extremely traumatized, she may accidentally break the walls that have been put up between her mind and the rest of the world, flooding her in the thoughts of all those in the near vicinity. All those in the near vicinity will be able to hear her thoughts as if through a mind-link, and maybe even see images, but no emotions will be automatically transfered, as stated before. The walls naturally re-form when she has calmed down, but only when she is completely calm.
Description of personality: Sophi has seen and experienced many traumatic things in the past, so she tends to be very quiet and shy around people, unless they are people she is very close friends with. To people she knows, she is a kind and caring person.
She becomes more relaxed in a natural environment, where plants and animals are living out their lives peacefully, and seems to be very well in tune with nature.
Sophi is almost impossible to anger. She will only become angry under circumstances when innocents are hurt, and she is not in great fear for her life or because of unnatural occurrences, like powerful demonstrations of magic.
Brief History: Sophi was born in a forest environment on the world of Raiyin, where she learned a great deal about survival in the wilderness at a very young age. She lived with her family until the age of six, when she was tested for special abilities and came up extremely positive for physical and Empathic Healing. She was then taken from her family to live at one of the Healer's Stations and be instructed on developing her abilties by other Healers.
The Healer's Station she was taken to was in a grassland area, a flat plain of land near a large plot of crops. After becoming reasonably skilled in her abilities, Sophi spent much of her time for the next thirteen years tending to the injuries, sicknesses, and emotional problems of the elves living in her region. Many of the elves she treated were those injured or sick from working in the field, but elves working in other paths of life were also sent to her Healer's Station from further edges of her region. The problems she encountered among others ranged from simple to extremely complex and disturbing, and left the elf with lingering traumatic memories of other people's burdens.
On the day she came to the dream, Sophi was outdoors during a period of free time when the clouds signaling an unnatural storm began rolling overhead, bringing lightning with them. She was about to go indoors when she saw an infant rabbit floundering about in the grass, and she knew that it wouldn't survive the storm. She went to go rescue the rabbit when a bolt of bright blue lightning struck the ground feet from her and opened up a temporary dimensional rift in the form of a blue mist. She was pulled in and woke up in one of the Dream's forests.
