APPEARANCE:

At just 5'1" (1.54 meters) Ishani is diminutive in height. Though she is not beautiful, there is a quality of untouched innocence to her face which might be described as "ethereal". Her hair is very long, the golden blonde curls meticulously cared for and styled, usually pinned back or braided so as not to be in the way. In accordance with Mystic tradition, her hair was cut off when she took her vows; she often wears a veil which covers her head, as well as clothing which obscures most of her body, leaving only her face, hands, and feet exposed. She has a dimple in her left cheek, though it is only visible when she smiles. An avid wearer of perfume, she wears a different scent each day.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

STRENGTHS

  • Force User: Ishani has become a mess of different traditions and abilities (don't even think about asking her what her philosophy is), but she does have the Force, and that's always a plus.
  • Maker, Not a Destroyer: Ishani has some skill in crafting and alchemy, though her interests tend to be pretty specific. She's famous for concocting alchemized perfumes with various effects on the wearer.
  • Stone Wall: While small in stature and not an exceptional fighter, Ishani can take a surprising amount of punishment in battle. Though modern medical treatment has done wonders for keeping her intact, her body is littered with scars and even replacement parts - a testament to her determination not to give up, if nothing else.
  • Support Unit: Ishani excels when working with others, provided she is not made the leader or center of attention in any given group. If you can inspire her loyalty, she may become a valuable ally.

WEAKNESSES
  • Call of the Sea: Ishani has an unusual addiction: she must routinely don an Atargatis Skin and swim in water, preferably an ocean. The longer she goes without a swim, the more her anxiety and restlessness will grow, eventually developing into depression and despair. Ishani keeps this addiction hidden, disguising it as a harmless hobby.
  • Always Follow Your Heart: Ishani's tendency to choose feelings over rationality, following her heart over her head, will doom her to much suffering and heartbreak.
  • Torn Down the Middle: Ishani was born and raised in an anti-Force cult. For much of her adult life she has flip-flopped between trying to distance herself from the faith of her ancestors, replace it with other philosophies, or reconcile it with her own views. This has led to considerable friction between her and her family, as well as the culture at large.
  • Spirits Beware: Due to her upbringing, Ishani has an automatic fear and distrust of anything originating in the Netherworld, be they ghosts, Shadows, or demons.
Likes:
Bats | Owls | Color Gold | Color Black | Forests | Perfume | Autumn | Alchemy | Archery | Getting things done early | Gifts | Redheads | Swimming | Dancing | Singing (when no one is around) | Going barefoot | Dragons | Finfolk | Hot chocolate | Unusual ship designs | Archaic architecture | Quaint, quiet, friendly little towns

Dislikes:
Losing control | Embarrassing herself | Not knowing what to do | Being rushed/late | Unpleasant Odors | High heels/uncomfortable shoes in general | Dyed hair | The Netherworld | Weird spirit beings | Tea | Big, loud, lonely cities | Being condescended to | Being mistaken for someone younger | Politics

CONCLUDED.

Experiencing Transcendence - Ishani meets a wandering Sith named Darth Sorn Darth Sorn and agrees to become his apprentice. ABANDONED

The Laws of Nature - Ishani learns about Tutaminis and starts a small fire by accident. While this was not her first thread, I consider it an official character introduction. COMPLETED

Mr. Heartbeat 864 ABY - Ishani sells perfume at a club hosting a male beauty pageant. COMPLETED - SINGLE POST

Please Do Not Feed the Trees - Observed at a distance by the Sith overseers, Ishani must endure a survival trip in the woods on a mysterious moon. After a friend betrays her, she meets Arcturus Thesh. The two go on one crazy adventure after another, facing overly competitive acolytes, wild animals, the elements, carnivorous trees, and their growing mutual attraction to each other. COMPLETED - BOYFRIEND ACQUIRED

Where Is He? - Alina Tremiru Alina Tremiru yanks Ishani out of class to ask about the missing Arcturus Thesh. Along with Melydia Gold Melydia Gold they agree to assist in trying to find him. The trio break into Arcturus' room to look for clues, and learn that he went into hiding after the invasion of Ossus because he aided the enemy. Specifically, he saved a group of Jedi younglings and released a Padawan he had captured. COMPLETED

The Strength in Pain - Ishani undergoes a trial involving torture in the basement of the Royal Academy on Korriban. Under the influence of Maliphant's drug, she experiences her worst fears, including visions of Arcturus' death, losing her connection to the Force, and a timeline where she never ran away from home. She eventually fights her way to consciousness. Maliphant is pleased. COMPLETED

Live Free Or Die - Ishani hires a dude named Dagon Kaze Dagon Kaze to help her save some captured Sith younglings. They succeed, but after Dagon learns she intends to take them to Korriban, he reveals that he's actually a Jedi. Oops. Rather than getting rid of him, Ishani breaks down and lets him take the children to Coruscant instead, on the promise that he will help her look for Arcturus there among captured Sith. On the way to Coruscant, Ishani and Dagon share a passionate kiss, but she breaks it off before things can go any further. QUEST COMPLETED - AVOID SMUT TIME

A Package For Miss Sibwarra - Still missing, Arcturus Thesh sends Ishani a package: a new type of alchemized sand he developed, and a message. Bit late coming, but better than nothing. COMPLETED - SINGLE POST

The Truth in Pain - Ishani is reunited with Arcturus Thesh on Ossus. After sensing his presence, Ishani tracks him down to the ruins of a Jedi temple. He answers her most burning questions, but there remains a tension between them. After uncovering a holocron, the two leave the planet aboard his ship. COMPLETED

Becalmed in Virtue - Arcturus and Ishani make a sword. Or, at least, they start to plan it out - but their meeting in his room is quickly derailed as the aforementioned tensions between them come to a head. Ishani convinces him to take her aboard his ship, where there is no risk of their being overheard by spies. Once there, she confesses what happened with the kids, and reveals her doubts about continuing her Sith training. She breaks down at the possibility of leaving him, however. Things settle down, there's a fade to black, spicy. The ship winds up on Folende, an agriworld in danger of eradication by the Bryn. Arcturus and Ishani offer to help them in exchange for prepping the planet for domination. Then the two head back to Korriban to tell Maliphant and co about it, and hopefully remember that they were trying to make a sword. COMPLETED

The Enemy At Home - Break into some traitor dude's house I guess. ABANDONED

The Smog - SE Dom of Chandaar. Ishani and Arcturus are tasked by Darth Veradun with sneaking inside a compound containing hidden Jedi and Force sensitives.

From the Glare of Stars - Ishani is among a group of Sith acolytes who crash land on Ossus while responding to a distress signal on the planet's surface. Melydia Gold becomes separated from the group, wandering off for unknown reasons. The acolytes find the distress signal's source, and are dismayed/alarmed when it is revealed that a Jedi is inside the ship. After some dallying and awkward attempts at bargaining, Ishani, who did not want to fight, is ironically the first to strike at the Jedi. COMPLETED

Afraid of Your Own Shadow - Ishani gifts Arc a perfume that restores forgotten memories. Arc talks to her about her distrust of Shadows. She agrees not to wear her anti-Nether perfume when Kal Kal is around. Arc tells her he loves her for the first time, and she gives him a birthday, much to his joy. COMPLETED

Blue Bayou - Ishani and Arcturus travel to Chaldea. In the half-underwater city of Pirivena, they hope to find Finfolk and steal an Atargatis Skin for study. Things go horribly wrong when they come across a mermaid and merman and attempt to subdue them. The mermaid fights them with the Force, attacking Ishani, and Arcturus goes apeshit, using blood magic to kill her. Upon her death, it is revealed the mermaid was possessed by a Bamarri. Ishani requests that Arcturus leave the unconscious merman alive, and they steal the pair's Skins. COMPLETED

Forbidden Knowledge - Ishani is on vacation in Naboo and looking for a Sith holocron among various antique shops. She doesn't find a holocron, but does acquire an antique lightsaber, which she buys in hopes of giving it to someone as a gift.

They hit each other with breadsticks before Brandyn's parents come to the rescue with a security team. COMPLETED

A Night to Remember - Ishani attends a TSE party. She meets Lady Marrow Lady Marrow and receives a Dantari Shard Drake as a gift. Jane lovett buys three of each of Ishani's perfumes, as well as one of each for Marrow, and Ishani agrees to see Marrow's garden in hopes of finding new scents for her perfumes. COMPLETED

The Seige - SE dom of Voss and Folende. Ishani and Arcturus plot to take over the agriworld Folende by creating their first ever Sithspawn, a type of vampiric bat which turns its victims into mindless zombies craving blood. During the ritual to create the Sithspawn, Ishani begins funneling her own energies into Arcturus - her mentality of serving his rise to power becoming a horrifying reality. While Arcturus and the other alchemists stop her in time, Ishani is nearly drained of life in the process. COMPLETED
