Distinguishing Features:

Personality

Personality:
Every person has their secrets, but some people’s run deeper than others. Despite his Priestess caste and female body, Adel al-Sabbah’s mind and soul scream that they are male in a way that is indescribable and inescapable. He has hidden this since he was old enough to recognize that Blood society held no place for him.

While it is profound in its implications, this is arguably not Adel’s greatest deception. His mother leads the seditious True Sabbah. He resisted involvement for years, their goals and methods countermanded by his impulse to serve his Clan and help its people; he was young did not know how he would do that, but he was sure it would not be by drawing divisions in the Sabbah and following in the steps of a madman. He has now publicly joined their cause and finds himself as at his mother's right hand, using his influence and gained knowledge to subvert the faction’s goals and serving the very Queen that they aim to remove.

The burdens of his secrets and his family's pretensions led to the development of a solitary nature. Adel is not prone to great shows of emotion or acting brashly and speaks with the cadence and vocabulary of a well-educated individual. He is careful but not calculating, preferring to trust his instincts in a situation rather than over-planning and over-thinking. This has led to him being something of an outcast among his family, who see him as less ambitious and lacking promise, adding to his sense of isolation. Constantly fighting the pressure put on him to follow a certain path has given him a stubborn streak on the things that matter, and a practiced ability to let go on the things that don't. When the passion that is typically roiling behind his composure comes to a head, he developes a single-minded focus on his goals and shows a fierceness that is usually hidden outside of combat.

Behind the reserved facade, Adel is a very different person. When his guard lowers he radiates energy, slipping seamlessly from intense debate to snide quips to giddy laughter as if every emotion that he suppresses in his daily life is bursting out at once. His intellect becomes a vessel for jokes and banter and his usual caution is put to use determining best moment to spring a rhetorical trap.

This apparent ease is its own mask, hiding Adel's vulnerability and fear behind shows of bravado. With his Queen and the precious few people who know his biggest secrets, a third personality appears, melding elements of the first two with whispers of who he might be without his walls. He is still cautious and soft-spoken, but there is a rare warmth to his voice that sharpens to intensity when his emotions are running high. His service to Elenor has also granted him a sense of purpose he had previously lacked, reinforcing his own faith in the Darkness as a guiding force and giving him a taste of the joy and completeness he feels as a spiritual herald for others.

For the purposes of in-character play, this character will be referred to using pronouns and gendered language based on the perception of the point-of-view character.

Requesting these Jewels confirmed, please and thank you!

(If I'm understanding things correctly and don't need to do anything else to nab my other character's family rolls)
