WHAT IS THE CHARACTER'S NAME?
WHAT IS A STRANGER'S FIRST IMPRESSION UPON MEETING THEM?
At first glance, Neomi appears to be a creative deadpan girl. She has no problem being blunt and straight to the point. Although she seems to have learned when to keep her mouth shut, she seems to step on toes and hurt feelings with her attitude. It's safe to say, she is probably not everyone's cup of tea. And, she seems fairly comfortable with this, because, hey, ya can't please them all.
WHAT IS THEIR PROFESSION AND HOW DO THEY FEEL ABOUT IT?
Neomi works at The Burrow, a warm and friendly lodge. It's owned and run by her parents. Typically, she is found behind the front desk helping customers. When she's not helping the family business, she is doing what she wishes she could always be doing: working on her artwork.
HOW HAS BEING A HOWL AFFECTED THEIR LIFE?
Having been risen by Howls, Neomi has been cradled into the position. Her mother has can sense them through a tingling sensation, and her father has caught glimpses of them. Neomi has inherited her father's sense of seeing them. Neither of her parents is particularly interested in investing much time into being a Howl. Both simply moved to Oaken, met, fell in love, and got married. They prefer a simple life, much like the tidy and cozy furnishings of The Burrow, and they would prefer if Neomi kept the same lifestyle. However, Neomi cannot help but continue recreating drawings of what she one time saw -- a Rue.
WHY ARE THEY IN OAKEN CITY?
Neomi lives with her family in Oaken City, where they run a small lodge.
DO THEY HAVE A HOWL ABILITY? WHAT IS IT?
If you could call it that. She can manipulate the air slightly, like making a light wind between her hands. The most she's ever used it for is entertainment when bored. One time she made the light wind go into a twirl.
Neomi seems like a great addition to the group - maybe one to create some fun dynamics among the characters! Thanks for the bit of worldbuilding: perhaps The Burrow is one of the more recommended places in the city, and Neomi one of the faces that strangers first see when they arrive. I have to admit, I'm a tiny bit concerned about the blunt attitude and toes-stepping: from experience there's an extremely fine line across which other players aren't having fun anymore because their character is perpetually offended. I do like the character type though, so I'll trust that her attitude is tasteful and she won't go out of her way to make any other PCs miserable. (but feel free to harass my NPCs as much as you like) 😉
As for her ability! She can see Rue which is great! Manipulating wind is more of a real-life ability that could affect the real world around her, which isn't quite allowed -- however! If this "wind" is something that she can see/hear/feel but doesn't seem to interact with real life at all (such as a weirdly colored mist or strange shadowy clouds that she can manipulate at will) then that's a-ok!
If all this is ok and you can make that little change, she's approved to go up in characters!
Same sort of ideas for @Dragonfly 9's passing through objects idea: you could perceive something that doesn't quite exist in reality. I feel like you're being pinged 100x lately sorry haha. 😅
