Name: Mother Faina (fa-ee-nah) Gajov
Height and weight: 5'7 and 156lbs
Mother Faina is only 20 but she carries herself in a stoic and graceful manner seemly beyond her years. She is tall, but of an average height for a Varyan woman. She would not be considered lean but her build is that of strength and muscle as is expected of any Inquisitor. Her facial features are soft and feminine which at times seems out of place on the training field. She is often misjudged by her looks. Her dark wavy locks are also out of place for a Varyan. Some say that she must be of mixed blood, but her family's strict pedigree would say otherwise. Many of her family lovingly refer to her as Varya's chosen one. She has many scares but none are highly visible.
Dont be fooled by Mother Faina's seemly quiet and reserved presence. She is fueled by a sense of loyalty, faithfulness, and dependability. She puts the needs of her Warband, sometimes at the determinant of herself, before all else. She is very organized and methodical which generally leads her to succeed at any task she undertakes. She values honesty and integrity. Even though she usually takes things very seriously, she has been known to have an offbeat sense of humor, especially in the company of her own Warband. She is a strong believer in tradition and has an unbreakable faith in Varya which can sometimes make it hard for her to see others perspectives. Mother Faina is usually uncomfortable expressing affection and emotion to others. However, her strong sense of duty and the ability to see what needs to be done in any situation usually allows her to overcome her natural reservations, and she is usually quite supporting and caring with the people that she loves. She is most likely to express her affection through actions, rather than through words.
Faina comes from a long line of clergy and Inquisitors. Boasting a lineage to some of the greatest warriors and Inquisitors in Varyan history, her family's prestige has afforded them a high level of comfort within their society. They are known for being extremely perticular about marriages and staying true to native Varyan blood.
From what she has been told Faina's parents marriage was one of convenience and breeding. It was no secret that there was no passionate love between the two, they still cared for one another. Both of them had become master inquisitors in their own right before the family began to pressure them to continue the family tradition.
Faina's mothers pregnancy was not an easy one. Constantly sick and bed ridden, many believed that she would lose the child. Little did she know that she was carring twins. Going into labor early Fainas mother would ultimately lose her life. The twins survived however.
When Faina and her brother were born it was quite clear that something was amiss. For reasons unknown she would be separated from her brother. Too young to remember him, her family has kept her brothers existence a closely guarded secret even to this day. Only those in the room that day know the secret.
Having been breed to be an Inquisitor, Faina grew up knowing exactly what was expected of her. Though she always felt like a huge part of her was missing. She thought it was just a feeling associated with never knowing her mother or Father. Her Father was a mystery to her as he never came to see her during her youth. She was told that he was too busy to see to the rearing of children. So Faina was raised by her mothers parents who were not Inquisitors but still deeply involved. However, every year on her birthday Faina would receive a letter from her father. Some times it would sing praise and others he would chastise her for not trying harder. He would always start the letter with "Vayra's chosen one"
At the appropriate age Faina entered the Red Seminary to begin her training as was expected of her. That feeling of emptiness never truly went away.
On the day of her day of Culmination, that all changed. Baring witness to her own birth she discovered exactly what was missing, her twin brother.
Really Good Memory- Faina has a knack for remembering the details. Being highly organized and detail oriented remembering names, dates, and event details comes very easy to her.
Can Spot a lie- Though not fool proof, Faina is really adept at reading body language. However, she is unlikely to say anything unless it effects the Warband in any direct or dangerous way.Ethereal: Gravity Manipulation:
Note: this all rudimentary and I am assuming that some laws of physics don’t apply due to it being a magical world.
1.Can alter the gravity field of herself and objects. This allows herself and objects to appear heavier or lighter. Note this does not actually change mass, but the force pushing or pulling on it. For example think of the moon and earth. The gravitational pull/ push is different and thus we appear heavy on earth and light on the moon. Some manifestations of this ability are, increased agility, and strength. Objects seem to slowly float away or become so heavy they can’t be moved. A limitation is that she and objects are only effected as long she is concentrating on them. For now the object will stop being effected immediately, but as she gets stronger, the longer it will take the effect to fade. However it will eventually fade.
2.She can manipulate the direction in which gravity will push or pull in relation to herself. This assumes that she is the center of gravity and that mass is very important. For example if she pushes against an object (this includes people) and she has more mass than it, than it will be pushed way from her. If she has less mass than it, she is pushed away from it. If they have the same mass then both be pushed away from each other. If she pulls on an object and it has less mass than her it will be drawn to her. If she pulls on object that has more mass than her, she will be pulled toward it.
Paling + Aegisbearer:
Using her manipulation abilities Faina pushes out her gravity field to create a dark pearlescent purple dome that basically repels anything with mass away from it. When she uses this ability alone it is her Paling. She can increase its ability to cover a group of people so long each person is chained together, skin to skin, to Faina. Both of these abilities consume a lot Ether. The latter will practically drain her and the longer she holds it the higher the risk of losing consciousness, or even worse, death. Spellblade: Ethereal connection to her twin brother:
starting on the day she was given her vision, every now and then Faina will experience extreme anger and hate that she knows is not her own.
Catalyst: A ring that once belonged to her mother.
Person emblem: ( Fieldless) a cross moline argent surmounted by a rose proper.
