Class: Potion Brewer/Artificer
Ophelia is a tall elf with good posture and classic features. Her peculiar
hairdo adds a bit of an edge to her appearance, making her stand out
between all the other tall and classical beauties in the elf realm.
Ophelia has large pointed ears, dark brown hair and brown, nearly black
eyes. She enjoys wearing whimsical clothes with lots of little
embellishments in bright colours.
Personality: Ophelia has lived a long time and has long since left
her youthful idealism behind. She has learned to choose her battles and
carefully considers her options before deciding/acting. If people don't
understand that she takes her time, it's their loss and she couldn't care
Skills: Following recipes and manuals to a T
Enjoys: Working on novel recipes
Dislikes: Getting rushed.
Ophelia carefully compared several mineral deposits. She needed just the
right composition to work on her next potion, which might not be something
the world was waiting for, but everyone who suffered from chapped lips and
winter toes would be happy to have something they could alleviate their
symptoms with. Because those ailments stemmed from the cold, she needed
just the right type of fire-aligned gemdust.
Ophelia rummaged further and suddenly stumbled on a not-so inanimate
Jaspis woke up as she was prodded by a humanoid and looked up yawning.
She'd fallen asleep here yesterday, sheltered by lovely warm rock that
blended with her hide. Sometimes a gem dragon just needed to recharge and
some moonlight was just the ticket to regain some spent magic. Only,
staying awake at night had made her tired.
"Hello." she yawned, "Did
you need me?"
Jaspis picked up the woman's need for fire-gems without problem. There
were plenty around so Jaspis didn't feel inclined to conjure some up. She
had a feeling the woman would prefer to find them herself anyway.
"I was just intrigued to find a gem dragon here." Ophelia
"I'm travelling to broaden my horizon."
Jaspis shared, "I'm surprised you know of my
"Enough to know you aren't full gem."
"Right right!" Jaspis got excited, "I'm
part Asandus too."
"I haven't read much about them. Aren't they the ones with flowering
gems?" Ophelia asked.
"Your knowledge is quite extensive."
She liked being recognised for what she was. Too often people just got to
'dragon' and that was that. But that was like calling all bipeds 'humans'.
Jaspis suspected most non-human bipeds would protest. Maybe a person such
as this was worth hanging on to...
Jaspis bonded at
Parents: Iolite Corine
Description: Jaspis has a vibrant dark red hide with brighter
orange wings and nearly luminiscent pink gems encrusting her body. He has
two curved horns and long, fur-lined ears. When crafting magic her
birth-gem (red jasper) appears as an amplifyer.
Personality: Jasper is gutsy and righteous. She is very grounded
and protective of the people/dragons she cares about and will not tolerate
injustice toward them (or others). She is very stubborn and will never
give anything less than her full 100% of effort. Being such a loud,
energetic being, she can be exhausting to be around.
*Functional Magic (Fire, Earth): Though innate, practice is
necessary to become truly skilled.
*Seedling Reproduction Every few years, the dragon's gemlike
scales bloom into flowery structures.
If they contract the pollen of another seedling-capable
dragon, they could very well become "pregnant", regardless of
dragon's actual gender.
*Telepathy The ability to communicate mind-to-mind.
*Teleportation The ability to teleport anywhere within sight
or that can be strongly visualized in the mind.
*Verbal Speech The ability to communicate in spoken words.
"What are you thinking off?" Jaspis
asked, "You feel nostalgic."
"I was just thinking of our meeting. I'm still surprised you bonded
me so quickly."
"I knew a gem when I saw it."
Jaspis told Ophelia.
"Thank you for the compliment. But your definitely a treasure too.
Without you I would have taken so much longer to create all these new
potions and cures."
"I think we both deserve a little reward."
"All work and no play makes humans go
"It's a good thing I'm not a human then." Ophelia retirted,
knowing it was a joke.
"Still, a little vacation wouldn't hurt."
"I guess you're right."
"I might want to flex my wings a bit while
we're away." Jaspis confessed, "I
think it's near the time when my gems bloom."
"Ooh, I would love to see that happen." Ophelia said, already
packing extra notebooks and vials to take samples.
