The Forgiven[edit]

A young child, beautiful golden hair rests on her shoulders. Her eyes light blue to an almost grey hue. She raises her arm and sends out a rush of vines at the intruders whom entered her land. If only they hadn't been full of greed they wouldn't have had to die.

Physical description[edit]

Being young at death, they have very soft smooth skin, hardly touched by time. Their hair is long, being the one thing that continues to grow on them.

Coming from any race but mainly non-beast people, their names come in much of a variety.
