Distinguishing Features:

Personality


Personality:

Jaleh is lively and bubbly. She loves to laugh and have a good time. A very good time indeed. She has a great joy in life. Right now that joy is somewhat diminished by the tragedy introduced by the Sandworms’ attack outside Onn, but even grief can only diminish her liveliness so much. She just can’t not find things to give her joy. Her best friends, Estera and Anjali are as much her sisters as actual blood would be and are the sources of much that gives her happiness in her current life. That the three of them survived - it’s something Jaleh can look at and hold on to and know that not all has been lost.

As a Healer, she is fierce. She doesn’t like to fail her patients and she doesn’t tolerate attitude from patients be they Warlord Prince, Queen, Landen, or anything in between. Not that she would refuse to heal someone who needed it, but she has been known to take the attitude of ‘You will do as your Healer tells you too, or you will take yourself out of my care’. Jaleh isn’t above being less gentle than she could be with someone who doesn’t show enough respect. For those who behave properly, Jaleh has a most excellent bedside manner...particularly if he happens to be male.

Jaleh has excellent maternal instincts, which seem to go hand in hand with being a healer much of the time, but she has no desire for a formal committed relationship. She is incredibly saddened by the death of so many of the people in her tribe, but happy that she and her sisters are there to rebuild it. She hopes that even those who might not otherwise be able to have children will come to her for help, even if they only desire one child at a time.


Likes:
  • 1 - Men: At almost 25 years of age, Jaleh is far from the blushing virgin stage of her life. She enjoys looking at men, she enjoys being looked at by men, and she enjoys bedding them. She has had several flings, but no serious relationships.
  • 2 - Riding: Jaleh enjoys the feeling of wind on her face and the sense of complete freedom she feels while riding. When she’s feeling wicked, she compares her skills riding a horse to her skills elsewhere.
  • 3 - Massages: Jaleh enjoys both the giving and receiving of massages. This healer is good with her hands and her healing tonics and lotions ensure that she has soft hands no matter how hard she has to work.
Dislikes:
  • 1 - Patients who don’t listen: Jaleh is fierce about her patients. If they don’t survive, they’d better have a damn good reason for it. Since she believes that if they listen to her then they are that much more likely to survive, she gets...testy when they ignore their Healer’s instructions.
  • 2 - Cities: She doesn’t like the noise, or the crowding, or the smells, or the tall buildings. She is happiest riding through the desert or camping at an oasis.
  • 3 - Xenophobes: Jaleh has never understood the fear or dislike of foreigners. If someone can survive in the desert, then they are welcome there. If they have the desire and will to pass the Trials to join a Tribe or Clan, then they are a part of that Tribe or Clan, and as far as Jaleh is concerned: that is that.
Fears:
  • 1 - Sandworms: Like many currently in Onn, Jaleh watched as Sandworms destroyed not only her family, but nearly her entire caravan, so she has a very healthy fear of the terrible beasts. It is a fear she is determined to master as she works on a Sandworm antidote.
  • 2 - Failure: Like many healers, she fears failing her patients. When someone under her care dies, she dies a little too. This fear makes her work that much harder to heal those who come to her.
  • 3 - Heights: Jaleh watched someone fall off a rooftop once. He died of a broken neck before she, as a fledgling healer, could have even attempted to do anything.
Craft Strengths:
  • 1 - Fertility enhancement: Jaleh uses Craft to help women get pregnant, encourage multiple babies, and enhance male virility. With men, she describes what she does as giving them more zing to their seed. She cannot use it to control gender.
  • 2 - Healing Tonics: Jaleh is particularly good at creating antidotes and anti-venoms that are somewhat nonspecific. For example, she has an antidote that is effective against most poisonous insects - not however, Sandworms. Considering recent activity, however, she is working on a sandworm antidote. Other types of tonics tend to be more effective in smaller doses as well.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 - Mending Flesh: Jaleh’s strengths in mending major injuries lie in knowing what tonics to use to prevent infection or speed healing and in bandaging well. While she can technically mend a small cut, it takes great concentration and much of her strength so that is she then essentially useless for further healing.

  • 2 - Shields: Jaleh’s shields are…laughable. It doesn’t matter what kind they are; sight shields hide nothing, aural shields filter no sounds, physical shields disappear if a moth hits them. Jaleh has to rely on others for shields or find something like a wall to hide behind when neccessary.
Life Story

Family:
Mother: Golnaz al-Situla, W to R Healer, b. 144 AP; d. 193 AP
Father: Alborz al-Situla, R to PD Warlord, b. 141 AP; d. 193 AP
Siblings: Nazli al-Situla, Blood female, b. 173 AP; d. 193 AP
Sardar al-Situla, TE to SS Prince, b. 165 AP; d. 193 AP
*none of these Jewels were rolled since they are all deceased.

History:
 Jaleh’s early life is nothing extraordinary. In fact, it was pretty idyllic. She was born the middle child of three with an older brother who doted on both her and their baby sister who adored her older sister.  Jaleh loved her little sister and was in awe of her older brother, but had a fairly typical disregard of a middle child for her siblings. Her parents were proud of her, that she was a Healer like her mother.

From such a very early age that they were considered cradle friends, Jaleh had an extremely close relationship with Estera al-Situla, a third cousin about eight months older, and Anjali al-Situla, a second cousin about a year younger than Jaleh. Indeed, the young Healer was closer to her cousins than she was to her actual siblings. The three girls ran somewhat wild in the caravan, always able to rely on their charm and their cuteness to keep them out of trouble. Once, when Jaleh was six Estera was stung by a scorpion and made very ill. It was an event that scarred all three girls as each thought that Estera would die. It led to Jaleh later focusing much of her training on healing tonics, antidotes and antivenom. There were times when the three girls were not together because of their training: Jaleh as Healer, Estera as Priestess, and Anjali as a truly wonderful weaver. But the trio always came back together almost as soon as they could.

Throughout their lives, the three cousins trained at their various tasks and traveled with their families in the caravan. As they neared maturity, they began to notice men and indeed often watched them and giggled over them and flirted with them.

After her Virgin Night and Offering, Jaleh’s appreciation of men increased and whenever they were in one of the few cities or at an oasis or even just met with other caravans while out traveling, Jaleh would seek out a companion for a night or two. She has never sought out anyone from her own caravan because she is unwilling to settle down and never wanted to create awkwardness between her and someone she has to rely on for safe travels in the desert.

The caravan had arrived at Onn for the High Summer Festival and the three cousins separated in the city for their individual errands. They were returning when the Worms attacked and life as they knew it came to an end.



Show Us What You've Got
Character in Play:

As much as Jaleh disliked being in a city, the Healer was pleased with her shopping at the festival. Her healing supplies had begun to run low; now that was no longer the case as her psychic cabinet was full near to bursting with herbs and she carried three large packs full of them as well as more in the way of bandages, bone setting supplies, and other assorted healing accoutrements. Her brother, acting as her escort as usual, was similarly burdened down with her packages, though his psychic cabinet held the results of his own shopping that day. The pair were near the gates, and Jaleh had just caught sight of Estera and Anjali who were returning from their own forays into the city as well, hoping she might be able to convince them to share her burdens, when it was as if all Hell broke loose.

The ground was shaking, there were screams and cries and the bellows of hundred of the great Sandworms and just before it all began, **WORMS. WORMS ARE ATTACKING. GET INSIDE THE WALLS NOW. LEAVE EVERYTHING BEHIND. MOVE.**


Jaleh screamed as Sardar dropped his bundles at her feet and pelted for the gates, clearly intent on getting to their parents, their little sister. Jaleh herself would have followed but her feet were frozen to the ground and she could not move. Then the sense of the psychic warning sunk in and the Healer knew she would be needed. She scooped up her brother’s packs - she would doubtless need all the herbs she had just purchased and more besides - but before she could turn to search out Anjali and Estera, she was caught by the flow of people rushing in through the gates.

She had to get out of the crowds and find other Healers, that would be her priority, but first she spared a moment to send a thought to her soul sisters. **Stay in the city. Find the Healers. I’ll find you when I can.** It was short, and brusque, but it was all she had time for before she shut down the link - she needed to focus now.

She wanted to weep, she had no idea if she would see any of her family again, but she shoved that desire away, concentrating fiercely on getting the hell out of this crowd and finding the Healers. It was hard. She was jostled this way and that, more than once only barely managing to hang on to the now precious healing supplies. Time seemed endless; Jaleh had no idea how long it took, how far she had traveled or even if she had done more than be shoved in endless circles, but eventually someone, a Prince she’d never seen before, snagged her out of the crowd. Bending down to put his mouth near her ear, he yelled “The Healers are this way. I’ll get you there!” She nodded, not saying anything and allowed the stranger to guide her, ignoring the wings that partially shielded her from the press of people.

She wanted to sigh with relief; this triage center was well set up, with plenty of Healers, escorts, and other attendants bustling about. One healer, an older woman, changed her path to intersect Jaleh and the stranger an expression of worried welcome on her face. Before the woman could tell her what to do, Jaleh spoke. “I’m worthless at healing wounds. I can bandage, but I’m better being used to brew medicines.” The older Healer nodded and directed Jaleh to a group of tables at one side of the area, one separated from the beds already holding patients.

Jaleh took an unclaimed table and set down her burdens with a sigh of relief. Then, determination showing in the set of her shoulders and the tilt of her chin, Jaleh set to work. She didn’t bother with her all-purpose antivenom, already knowing it was useless against Sandworm poison. Instead she began grinding and mixing for painkillers, bonebreak powder, bloodstop, calming teas, sleep enducers, nerve blockers, and guards against infections - anything she could think of, really, that might possibly come in useful this night.

She kept mixing until she was again out of herbs, her power infusing every drop of every medicine she made to give it as much effectiveness as she could. When she was out of herbs, and drained uncomfortably low, she moved to circle the triage area to begin bandaging the wounded, spreading her medicines and murmuring prayers for every person she tended.

She had to keep busy before she worried over the others she couldn’t help. Father, Mother, Sardar, Nazli, Estera, Anjali...all the others...how many of them would she see again? She did not know, could not guess, could only hope and pray and keep busy.

I am resubmitting this lovely Healer since she went inactive.

I believe I need new sparklies? Also, five ally rolls if I can't just get the ones from the old sheet.


Do I need to do any Petitions for this?

Thanks in advance!
