Scribe, Vault of the Sages (NG female half elf Brd4)
History: : Amianna is the daughter of Arngrim Magebane (a human wizard recently retired from the Spellguard) and Emrythae Brightsun (a half-elven female who is a retired cleric of Lathander). She has worked in the Vault of the Sages for almost 6 years now in the Elven Lore department. Her interest in elven lore came from her elven grandfather, who told her tales of long abandoned empires within the High Forest.
Amianna takes her leave of the Vault as often as possible in order to pursue her personal interest: discovering lost elven lore within the High Forest. She usually finds a group who is intending to adventure in or around the High Forest and asks to join them. With her natural charisma and good looks, Amianna tends to be hired on rather quickly. Adventuring groups lucky enough to have her find her to be a capable companion in times of trouble and an excellent storyteller when on the road or when making camp.
Appearance: The most common word used to describe Amianna is "pixie". She stands just over 5' tall and weighs shy of 100 pounds. She is 20 years old with auburn hair that seems to blaze when struck by the sun. Her blue eyes twinkle merrily whenever she is happy, especially when engaged in her research of elven lore. Her clothing makes some believe she possesses multiple personalities. While working in the Vault, she always wears bland, utilitarian clothing of dark color. But when enjoying herself amongst the taverns and festhalls of Silverymoon, Amianna tends towards gossamer dresses, usually of blue or red, which accentuate her pixie-like form. When adventuring, she wears leather armor and carries either a lute or a harp. She defends herself with a quarterstaff, a sling, and a dagger.
Personality: As with her clothing, her personality almost seems fractured. There is nothing that can break her concentration when studying her elven lore or scribing and copying items at the Vault. She is quiet and unassuming while on duty and never speaks out against her superiors. Only her eyes reveal the joy she feels when surrounded by the books and scrolls of the library. When enjoying a night on the town, however, she truly exudes magnetism and appeal. Those around her appreciate her for both her bardic talents as well as her beauty. She casually flirts with males of any species, but deep down wishes for a noble elf to sweep her off her feet.
