This is Shalien. She is one of my favorite RPG characters. She is from the Irong Kingdoms setting, which has a fantasy renissance steam punk feel. She is a Nyss elf (basically a winter elf) who was raised by humans. She doesn't know much about what she is, but she does know that she is different. The only ties she has to her elven heritage are the sword she carries, the tattoo on her face, and the bits of language that remain in her memories.
