New OC! My friends Aeyamar, PaladinPhantom, and I are working on starting an Ars Magica game, set in mythic Europe. This is my character concept for that campaign!

orchid and leafs r by DiegoVainilla Lilium's mother was a dryad, and she spent her formative years living among the fae. She eventually rejoined human society and was trained as a mage, but she still thinks of herself as a faerie, and is absolutely delighted by the quaint peculiarities of humans. She is incredibly soft-hearted and cannot stand to see people upset, although her "solutions" to their problems aren't always rooted in conventional logic. She has a habit of adopting children who have been abandoned by their parents or otherwise rejected by society. She can speak to animals, both magical and mundane, and has no problem at all just cavorting around in the wilderness, surrounded by strange creatures and faeries.

orchid and leafs r by DiegoVainilla Lilium has a number of non-human physical characteristics. Her eyelashes are leaves, the whites of her eyes are actually blue, and her freckles are green. Fresh flowers grow in her hair every morning as long as she is in good health. Because she's half-plant, her magic is greatly weakened if she's gone without water for more than 24 hours. She carries multiple waterskins and several small emergency vials with her at all times, just in case.

Nice, but what is a Dryad?

Acaciathorn's avatar

A dryad is a magical being that lives in the forest, usually in a tree or other type of plant.

I thought that was a Satyr. Oh well, I like your work, it's pretty!

Acaciathorn's avatar

Satyrs are wild, magical beings who are part beast, part man. They're always male

That's where you're mistaken. Female satyrs were eventually adopted into Greek mythology.

I'm just going by the rules of Ars Magica, cuz that's the system we're using :shrug: or :dunno:

Either way, I depict satyrs as aliens from a planet called "Olympus".

No problem. Though I personally imagine dryads as green girls. And I'm trying to decide if they should be an elf subspecies, or their own species.

Lilium is only half dryad, and she's a mage.

I'm guessing she's a merinita?
