Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Condition: Fine
Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    The first thing that one should note about Iuchra is how tall she is, compared to the rest of her sex. At five-foot-nine she's average amongst her people in the Southern Clan, but among Harperians she stands out like a sore thumb. So does the rest of her, in all honesty - she is dark-haired and dark-eyed, yes, but her complexion is that of someone who has lived outside for her entire life in addition to her naturally dark skin tone, and she's built as only those who continuously travel ever could be. Lean as she is, and as dirt-and-poultice-stained her hands might be, she knows how to wield the spear like all of her people do. This shows in the easy way she moves with the weapon; though judging by her back musculature and arms, she is the most familiar with a bow.

    The embroidery on her tunics, skirts, and cloaks are tight and finely done, in the hand of someone who has done many of them over the course of her lifetime - and they are quite expressive as well. No two articles of clothing on her person have the same embroidery, though they carry a common theme: wheels, the history of herself and her Clan, and imagery of a suicune bounding near the hems and occasionally over the heart. She favors sleeveless tunics and skirts, both rugged and designed more for rough use than not; breeches are a concept that she is only recently becoming familiar with.

    Iuchra's Woadarch ancestry and blood are also all too-apparent in the way she accessorizes, which are mostly made of leather, bone, twine, and beads in the Deinei fashion. Her long hair is usually kept braided and pulled upward and out of her face, though there are some trinkets woven in there as well. Her armor is also distinctively from the Deinei - crafted from pokemon leather and parts as they are, there's no mistaking the distinctive embroidery that marks what hunt they came from. These, she wears with some familiarity - they are a gift for both her services and for other occasions, as she is a druid, not a hunter. But all learn the three tenets, of course, and it would be a mistake to think Iuchra does not know how to wield a weapon.

    As she favors sleeveless clothing, no matter the season and even during winter, it's easy to see the tattoos on her arms. Her Tairseach was only a confirmation of her livelihood, after all, and that - though not her only - tattoo is the one in stark black and woad-green, climbing up her forearms. Still, there is space left there for pokemon companions that she has yet to tame.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Woadarch complexion, build, and embroidered clothing
  • distinctive Woadarch tattoos, most on lower and upper arms
  • earrings and bangles; notable ones include an ear cuff on the right ear with feathers, and earrings dripping from the left, all made from leather, bone, twine, and beads
  • has a lantern with blue-colored glass to light at night
Overall Personality:
    Above all, Iuchra is bright - in most, if not all, meanings of the word. She is kind and compassionate, with an easy sort of bearing that invites people into her world as much as she invites herself to others'. She is known for her quick mind and quicker hands, as though she did not specialize in combat training to be a hunter she has proved herself time and again as someone who is able to heal injuries during her Clan's major hunts. She is calm and steady, as all healers must be, and seems to know innately what to say. Her empathy and understanding have made her well-regarded amongst her peers, and her open sense of hospitality is only partly inspired by the Southern Clan's own behavior. The simple truth is that she cares for others, and cares deeply, enough that she would jump in front of a knife for those she loves.

    This is not to say that she cannot be stern or stubborn. Iuchra is a healer and a druid, which means that she will often be more concerned about the world around her and the hearts and healths of people than most others, but she is one that knows herself - or thinks she does. Without magic, some others - and even other druids - in the Clans have told her that she could not be one herself; but those, Iuchra has worked, and worked hard, to silence. She is not quiet, nor does she relegate herself to the side; if she believes she is in the right she will protest decisions that she does not agree with - and often loudly.

    And that, perhaps, is the most interesting thing about Iuchra. The druid's task in Woadarch culture extends to the apricorn trees, knowledge of medicines from plants and otherwise, and have lent themselves to becoming philosophers, teachers, and healers. Iuchra is all four of these, though her abilities are limited on the makings of apricorn-based pokeballs - and she, and all the druids in her Clan, know this. Still, she has dedicated her life to the druidic arts, even choosing her mastery of the bow with it in mind - the healer must be intact in order to heal everyone else at the end of the hunt, after all.

    But fires still burn, and waters still drown. She is charitable, yes. She is open, yes. She is kind and compassionate and caring to the point of self-destruction, yes. Still, as a healer knows all the best ways to heal a body, so do they know all their weaknesses. Iuchra's temper is long but she is one of those best equipped to cut down a grown man or woman where they stand with mere words, digging into their soft parts and bleeding wounds to cause injury - and though like her patron she values flexibility, balance, and an open mind, she does not hesitate in her wielding of the knife. Her empathy and compassion aid in the diagnosis of an illness; if a treatment calls for a cauterization or a verbal vivisection to cut to the heart of the matter, she will do it. Some might call this cruel; Iuchra would call this pragmatism.
History:
    Iuchra was born on a wagon belonging to the Southern Clan, as were her brother and sister. The middle child of three, she is one that came during Sorcha's transitional period as Matriarch. Her mother is a distant relative of Sorcha's, and her father's own roots are firmly in the Southern Clan; in both upraising and blood, Iuchra is firmly of those who live in the wetlands and plains, and has lived on the road for all of her life.

    Her siblings and she are perhaps living embodiments of the three tenets, which never fails to amuse both they and her - her sister Eilín is the eldest and an accomplished hunter, and her brother Suibne is an artist by the needle of both cloth and flesh. They are Iuchra's cherished friends, even as their lives have now deviated from each other, and they - and her parents - were supportive when she told them, at age ten, that she'd like to be a druid. Some others in the Clans were not as such, though the Southerns, as the main clan most divorced from magic, responded positively overall. Her Tairseach involved languages and healing - the former for those dialects common among the Clans as well as Common, and the latter for her first major hunt, which she attended as both healer and long-range support. The armor that she wears came from Eilín's hunts from when she was in her twenties, though as a healer Iuchra has only added to them minimally.

    As part of the weapons training that began also at age ten, she learned to wield all of those common to her people - the spear, shield, and javelin being amongst them - but she only truly mastered the bow. This is due to one of the elder druids in her clan, who specialized in healing and chose to honor the bow, and whose footsteps Iuchra followed in. She trained well enough to make a name for herself in their youth's tournament before her Tairseach, though she did not come close to winning the entire thing.

    And honestly, Iuchra has not wished to. She threw herself into her druidic studies not long after her Tairseach at age fifteen, and paced herself fast - and brutally, some will say - enough that she finished her Harperian-equivalent of Journeyman status at age twenty. In the years since Iuchra has proved herself a capable healer, always with herbs, plants, potions, and poultices, as well as the like - common things found in the local Harperians' apothecaries, and never of a true Healing mage's influence.

    But there are some uncommon things in her repertoire as well, courtesy of her experience and close workings with the hunting parties of the Clan - namely, Iuchra has found ways to make potions that will subdue a dragon, or one that will calm them or those of similar size and aggressive nature. She knows how to make aphrodisiacs, paralysis-inducing tinctures, and sedatives, amongst others; and all of these, she knows how to make well.

    Which is why, perhaps, she was a candidate for the joint hunt that the Mage's Guild had proposed.
