Distinguishing Features:

Personality



Personality:
Growing up in a world of sandworms, salt mines, and hardships Esfir has learned to keep her head down and her mouth shut. She loved her mother and her father with all of her heart till the day of their deaths and this is what influenced her decision to become a Court Healer. She wanted to help people and to be the best Healer that she could be given the circumstances of her birth. She was never going to have a deep well of power, but by learning precision, she was able to do things that would have been hard to do by just throwing large wells of power at the task.

She likes quiet places away from people and she loves to have her time when it comes to her baths. People in the desert have only ever known one time of bath a dry bath, but that doesn't mean that it can't feel just as great. The sweat that builds up can cause irritation and by drying it and cleaning one's self they are able to feel refreshed. This is one thing that Esfir loves in her day, the time to just be by herself and to have the time to refresh herself.

She fears the sandworms and Shira like a mouse would fear a snake. She knows that the worms can and have killed because this is the way her mother and father passed when she was a child. She also knows that Shira can be just as dangerous. She does not want to cross the woman so she keeps her head down and her mouth shut, but she does help those that need the help. This is what is influencing her current behavior with Sarina and the rest of the court. She loves to help others, but she does it without Shira knowing for fear of her wrath, but she would never let someone suffer because she wasn't courageous enough to risk herself. Her values and beliefs have always been that the innocent should not suffer no matter the cause. Esfir takes this to heart. She wants to make sure that those in the Court are taken care of even if it costs her own freedom and safety. She gets angry at those who hurt children and the elderly. She has always thought that the old and young deserve respect and care. Another trigger for her anger is for someone to treat others wrongly when they have done no wrong of their own.

Likes:
  • 1 Dry Bath - After a long day of healing the people of the region in the clan, all that Esfir wants to do is to take a rest and a good bath to get the sweat and oils off of her for the day. This is a time for her to think and to calm her own mind and she loves this time to herself.
  • 2 Helping others - Esfir loves to help other people. Healing, and counseling them with their troubles in ways that only a person that cares can. Her empathy helps her and her love for helping others fuels her.
  • 3 Cool Days - Every Pruulian deals with the heat of the desert but there are always some days that are different from others. Some days are slightly cooler and it gives a refreshing change to the life that is sand, heat, and humidity.
Dislikes:
  • 1 Loud Noise - Being quiet most of her life because of her fear of people, Esfir has come to hate loud noises because crowds of people come with a loud noise. She hates it because it gives her headaches and she only wants peace to work in with her patients.
  • 2 Crowds of people - Since a child Esfir has decided that people cause problems for other people because of all of the drama she has seen unfold. She doesn't want to cause problems and she doesn't want to be caught up in problems of other people. Because of this, she has learned to hate crowds of people.
  • 3 Sand - Living in the desert her entire life she knows nothing else but the desert and the sand, except when the clan goes to Onn when she sees the vegetation and the lake. Since she has come to only know this life, she hates the sand that is the world she lives in with her clan.
Fears:
  • 1 Her opinion - She is afraid that her opinion on the "False Queen" incident will be found out by the rest of the clan. She does not agree with the way they have done things recently and she wishes nothing more than to help people and to go unnoticed by the others.
  • 2 Shira - Shira had poisoned her clan into obeying her. This makes her a large source of fear for Esfir. She doesn't want to die and she doesn't want to be forced into doing things against her will by pain. She keeps her head down and stays quiet.
  • 3 Sandworms - Living with the fear of your mind and of your family is different from living with the fear of an outside threat. When the sandworms are involved everyone is in danger because of their size and their poison. Because of this Esfir has a healthy fear of them.
Craft Strengths:
  • 1 Elixir - With having a small well of power Esfir had to find another way to deal with healing a large group of people or someone that needed a lot of power. Because of this she has crafted Elixirs and has become very well versed in this form of craft.
  • 2 Detection Craft - Most people only think that detection craft can be used to find people or things, but Esfir has found ways many times to use this form of craft in healing to help with making her job easier by detecting what is wrong with the patient before it gets worse.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 Jewel Management - Esfir has a very small well of power because of this she has to have the precise craft to combat her lack of stamina when healing. She has trained for many years to advance her skill at Jewel power control. She still has difficulties with the more advanced skills needed for a Healer when preforming advanced surgeries. She has to request assistance from other Healers to have the ability to perform these surgeries.
  • 2 Muscle and Nerve Stitching - Esfir has never been good at this kind of craft because of how intricate and complicated as well as power-consuming this form of craft is when performing it.
Life Story

Family:
Mother: Nadia al- Sabbah White - Rose Deceased 50 144 ap
Father: Reza al-Sabbah Opal - Green Deceased 60 134 ap

History:
Esfir's earliest memory was sitting in the sands of the dry bath with her mother and getting cleaned. She learned to love the dry baths as time went on. Truth is the rubbing of grit on the body doesn't feel the best as a young child but after growing you learn that this is far better than the alternative of sores and sweat on the body. She was around four when she had this memory and she will always cherish it because of what is to come in her future.

Around six she started her warrior training as all Pruulian children do. She never really enjoyed fighting but when it came to bandaging up the people that didn't to the best in their fights she excelled. She loved this part of her life she was taken in by an old Healer because it was assumed with her talents that she would become a Healer and with her White Birthright Jewel, she would need proper training to get any good from her Caste.

Around the time she hit puberty, her caste finally became apparent and her parents were so proud but this would not last. One day with the sands of the desert came to the sandworms and her mother was not prepared for this and died. Her father was injured and so after passed as well. This is her saddest memory and she would never wish the death of anyone's parents on a person. She was heartbroken, but life moves on in the desert.

She performed her Offering and came back with the Rose Jewel and not long thereafter had her Virgin Night to ensure her power was secure. Her goals over time never changed and she wanted to help others so she seeks out now to join a Court to become their Healer. Shira was looking for a healer for some time to assist with the progressing events that had been affecting the new clan Queen. She was self-harming and only the trusted knew, but with the progression, Shira had to find help. Esfir did not know this when she took to the idea of serving her new clan Queen.


Show Us What You've Got

Character in Play:
Esfir looked out at the setting sun and the sands that spun and danced over the surface of the desert-like wisps of the Darkness itself. She loved this time of day for the serene nature of the scene. Sadly, she could no longer enjoy this time of day because of the memories in her past. She would just love to watch the sand, but she had other things to do. As she walked she thought about the past and the events that had occurred to get her here where she was today. She had loved her training days and she had loved becoming a healer but she couldn't help but feel sadness at what happened.

Memory Years Pior:

The training was finished for the day, Esfir had become decent at providing care to the children that had gotten hurt during their training. Her teacher thought that she was a Natural-Born Healer and she didn't want to argue because if her time was spent more towards healing and less towards fighting she would be far happier. She hated hurting others and would in most cases be the one that got hurt. She understood the value of learning these skills but she didn't understand why the trainers took it so seriously.

She hadn't known what would come that day. That day the sands had been more harsh than normal and she was told to go back to her family. Sadly, she did not know this was the last time that she would see her mother alive. Because right as she got back the worms attacked. She knew what they were but she had never seen them so violent.

She ran with the rest of the people that could run but some did not far well. Her mother was crushed by a worm while Esfirs father tried to help. He was able to get away, but it would not help him he inhaled the poison and died not long after. Esfir was lucky a training mate had come by and they had a buggy with horses that could run faster than any human could. The family stopped and allowed her and her father on to run. They ran and ran to get away from the worms and with the larger commotion in the background they were able to escape.

End of Memory

She remembered all as clear as day, the screaming, the roars, the sight of her mother getting crushed under the raging worm. She didn't want to think of these depressing things anymore. Tomorrow she would go to try and become the new Court Healer. As she lay down for the day she said to herself, "I love you, mom and dad. I hope you are proud of me."
