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.

Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Huyana smells like rosemary and almond oil, earthy but not unpleasant. She is careful with her hygiene and bathes regularly; her clothes, too, are well kept and simple. These, too, are often in earthy tones – she isn’t usually one for the flashier clothing, but she isn’t entirely adverse to it either. However, that costs money, and money isn’t something Huyana has ever had an astronomic abundance of.

    Huyana stands on the taller side for a human female, at exactly five feet and eight inches. She is tall and lean, with long legs that are used to running and swimming. She’s physically tough, as one would expect from her background, and her hands are nimble and dextrous from working with fabrics and patients alike. Occasionally, the two inter-lap; she may be treating a stab wound in one hour and then the ripped shirt in the next, both in the same professional manner. Her hands work tirelessly at what she does, in careful and precise movements that mirror her quiet nature. This quiet nature, too, often surprises those who do not expect it. Huyana is used to being seen and not heard; there is little fanfare in silence. Her voice, too, is soft, albeit more on the low side.

    This Bulwari woman’s dark hair is short and has remained so for some time – once it grows too long, she hacks it back into some semblance of order, though it still finds ways to defy her in small ways. Flyaway hairs prone to frizz in humidity and as dry as a swimmer’s hair tends to be. It sits somewhere between straight and wavy, and the thick waves are parted in the middle. When the sun hits it directly, it almost looks brown. Huyana is very much like her ancestors, in that her amber eyes are narrow and her mouth is wide. Her heart-shaped face is complimented by high cheekbones, sharp eyes, and a rounded nose.

    Her skin is a deep caramel, but it is not unscarred. A brand lies on the outside of her left shoulder; three circles, each one bigger than the last, fall vertically, connected only by lines. What appears to be a set of claw-mark shapes taper off to the side. Those with the knowledge of these particular slave brands may be aware that this particular slave was obtained by a slaving ring that operates from Dorani – and as such, may also be aware that the claw-marks indicate her freedom. The original brand is faded more than the additions.

    Huyana's a guarded person, bordering on paranoid, and this shows through the way she always seems to keep an eye on everyone. Distrust. Too see her express her emotions is rare outside of her eyes - expressive and telling of whatever mood she's submersed herself in.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Amber Eyes.
  • Navas Bulwari.
  • Brand on the outside of her left shoulder.
  • Tall for her sex – 5’8”.
Overall Personality:
    Huyana is well intentioned, and her motherly nature is difficult to hide. She has an intense need to take care of and protect others. She’s also a compulsive meddler, and often gets involved with all of the things she really has no business to. She is blunt, honest, and decisive. If there is something that needs to be fixed, she quickly moves to fix it. If there’s something she doesn’t know, she resolves to learn everything she can. She shares the same standards on working, albeit stricter, than her forbears – both her parental figures and those she trained under.

    To put it bluntly, Huyana is stubborn and determined to get things right. She is serious and literal-minded the majority of the time, but she is not humourless. She is willing to tease and joke, although it’s just as easy to fluster her – particularly about personal affairs relating to the heart. Huyana’s feelings have not been considered for so long, not to those she’s served, that even giving non-professional opinions or sharing feelings is difficult, and as such Huyana is a recluse even amongst those she considers allies. Few bear witness to her inner insecurities; some believe she has none, but they’d be well fooled to believe so.

    It should also be noted, however, that whilst Huyana is generally even tempered, her temper is also deadly when provoked – very much like a Ursaring protecting her cubs. Her sense of justice and her want to protect others often drives her at odds with her own physical and mental health, and really, Huyana would give someone her still-beating heart if it went with this purpose. Self-sacrifice is a vital lesson; whether through duty or love. Once Huyana sets herself a task, there is little that can stop her - pure determination powers her forward through the dark times... even if sometimes it happens to be the stony and silent type.

    Life. It is a concept that fascinates Huyana, and is something she’s against taking for no reason. For what people seem to treat it as, as if it can be so easily thrown away, it is a curious concept that Huyana finds herself pondering often. As a result, Huyana isn't one to kill unless it's a genuine life or death situation. Why kill when you can wound? Why wound when you can subdue? Why subdue when you can pacify? Most of all, Huyana does not fight unless she has first extended her hand in peace to the other.

    But this does not make Huyana weak, even so. Sometimes one has to fight for peace, contradictional as it may sound.
History:
    When Huyana was born, it was to two hopeful parents, an elder sister, and a pod who doted on her. Born during a storm in the community houseboat, it was with great concern that Huyana’s mother made sure of her successful delivery. Huyana came from a long line of strong Bulwari women, particularly healers and warriors who were amongst those to survive the initial event that brought them to Harper, but her mother was a cautious woman who would take no risks in her daughter’s incoming birth. The Bulwari of the Navas were overjoyed by her arrival, and the clan’s celebrations, like with every birth, were ecstatic and carried over well into the next morning.

    At her Kapaala, otherwise known as her First Birthday Ceremony, Huyana received a friendly Chingling alongside the traditional Pokéball. Later, when Huyana was old enough, she’d affectionately name the small one Se’risquie—the Stormsinger—for the young Pokémon was particularly cheerful during and prior to the coming of the rain. The two were close, though Huyana still wonders if the Pokémon is doing well in her absence, if they still live at all.

    It could easily be said that Huyana was born with the sea in her veins and music in her heart. As with most Bulwari children, Huyana did not differ. As a small child, she danced and sang around the boats, learned to swim early, and often watched her mother taking care of patients. Once the time came, nobody attempted to stop her from beginning to informally ‘apprentice’ under her mother and sister as a physician. She was well on her way in following their footsteps, and took to the profession like she took to water – like she had been born for the role.

    Huyana was a hopeful, cheerful child, but she was in the habit of wandering off – or simply disappearing for periods of time as she swam and explored. Se’risquie’s ability to swim wasn’t terribly good, however, especially as a younger pokemon, and Huyana remembers building them a small (albeit crude) raft with an attached rope so that they could swim together.

    A number of those in her family were known to follow the tenets of the Balician faith. Huyana's parents both followed separate paths; in particular, her mother was of the Earth path, and her father was of the Water path. Both took their faiths seriously and welcomed Huyana when she wanted to witness their rituals, but neither pushed her into making a choice. The choice was hers to make – and for a while, Huyana teetered on the edge, never truly making a decision.

    But things rarely lasted forever, Huyana came to realise, when she was ripped away from her entire pod – her entire family. The attack came suddenly during the night, whilst the pod had temporarily docked at one of the beaches. A band of slavers attacked the pod, aiming to take whatever they could, and though the pod fought well, several of the girls were taken. Amongst them was Huyana, and she still vividly remembers the fate of the first girl who tried to break away; killed mercilessly and without remorse. An example for the rest to follow. Huyana was eleven years old, and even now, she remembered everything. Every little detail, down to the way the blood trickled from the dead girl’s broken face. Her injured and unconsicous Pokémon was left behind with the rest of her family, and though Huyana may never know of what happened to the Chingling, her pod considered Se’risquie’s survival as an omen of Huyana’s survival. And in a way, it was.

    The Bulwari of the Navas did not give up on looking for Huyana, but things were made difficult once Huyana was dragged over to Doran Village and branded. Her hair was cut short, her hands chained together, and she was sold off to the highest bidder – a noble lady who hired the ‘exotic’ young girl to act as a playmate and maid for her daughter. Viviane Fox was a precarious child, easily bored but fond of having someone to ‘boss about’. From there, it was up to the north – directly to Harper’s Pass. It was decided that during her service Huyana was to be known as ‘Miriam’ instead – Viviane selected it at her mother’s behest, but the daughter was a tad more merciful, despite her selfishness.

    Slavery meant being clothed and housed and fed, it meant housework instead of the gruelling labour that she’d heard some were often forced into. With no idea where her family was or how she would get home to, Huyana – now Miriam – was left with no choice but to continue serving Viviane and her mother, Aalis. Over time, Aalis Fox enrolled Miriam under an apprenticeship in her rare off-time, to hone her current skills and begin to branch out into new ones. Viviane often wanted new clothing, or scraped her knees, and Miriam’s duty was to keep her Lady looking and feeling proper.

    In all intents and purposes, Miriam became Viviane’s shadow. It did not guarantee her total loyalty, for Huyana still yearned for freedom and for her family, but it was the fear of the unknown that kept her from contacting the Guardians about it – because who knew what Aalis would do after that? How would Huyana get home when she wasn't even sure where she was?

    Over ten years on from her initial capture, Miriam was finally free to leave once relations between Lady Aalis and Lady Viviane soured – Miriam’s work may have revolved around the younger, but her real Mistress was Aalis herself. Viviane had grown old enough for her services to no longer be needed.

    And Huyana jumped at the chance.
