Myriad-Saga: Orleien by Meibatsu Myriad-Saga: Orleien Reference Sheet by Meibatsu

Orleien is a soft-spoken and seemingly fragile girl who has been sheltered for most of her life from the rest of the world. She is fairly passive and tries her best to avoid confrontations of any kind. This is mainly due to the fact that many Krome have been persecuted in the past for their beliefs, and her community in particular instilled a distrust for other races. Due to her upbringing, she mostly tries to keep to herself and be self-sufficient, doing whatever it takes to stay alive, despite desperately wanting to fit in and be accepted. She usually seen quietly thinking to herself or observing others. She occasionally wear makeup power all over her body when traveling to a new place in order to hide her colourless skin.

+ self-sufficient/resourceful if she has to be
+ observant
+ intelligent
+ graceful
+ polite and tolerant
- distrustful / evasive
- manipulative
- lonely / distant
- fragile self-esteem / becomes a doormat
- lives life in desperation
- indecisive
- complicated / hard to understand
- amoral

* doesn't like talking about her past or upbringing
* usually gets around barefoot since the cavern rocks where she grew up is very slippery and most footwear wouldn't have enough grip
* she wasn't born with that beauty mark on her left cheek.. she put it there. >_>
* enjoys attention as long as she's not expected to interact with her "audience", whoever that may be
* indecisive about which deity she follows and will generally choose whatever deity the person she is talking to follows is asked

dancing, costume parties, watching people, being taken care of/feeling safe, catching people's attention, fading into the background and going unnoticed (I know this partially contradicts with her like for attention--she just got a lot of mixed feelings lol), dressing up and pretending to be someone else

being questioned about her past, confrontations, being used/abused, being "dissected", talking about her culture or people, being made to sing

She doesn't seem to have left her community on the best of terms and it is unknown who her parents were and what he family life was like.

She remains pretty distant with anyone she meets due to her distrust. She's generally polite though and learns people's names and preferences easily.

She is unclear about her sexual and romantic history, but she has implied she has had a few lovers in the past. She sometimes mentions that she would like someone she can trust to take care of her because it's tiring to be on guard all the time.

Sexual Orientation:
Also not totally clear, but it seems like she prefers men.

All of her abilities are based on Dark and Water elements, and sometimes combining the two.

1. Dark Mist (Dark + Water) - Attack Power --/5 (usually 3/5 effectiveness, 4/5 if it's raining)
Orleien obscures visibility in an area by filling the air with an inky mist so that she may escape or disorient a target. Usually, dark water vapour rises from a water source. If not much water is around, mist can form from the moisture in the ground or the air, but this is a slower process and can take about a minute or more to surround enough area for an effective escape. It's much more effective and fast at blotting out everything if mist/fog is already present or if it's raining.

2. Submerged Passage (Water) - Attack Power --/5 (3/5 effectiveness)
Orleien can dive into a river (or most bodies of water) and almost "meld" her body with the flow of the water so that it carries her away without harming her (e.g. she won't die from getting hit by rocks in rapids or falling down a waterfall). She can only do this for as long as she can hold her breath though, and sometimes coming back to a river bank safely is difficult. She won't get anywhere if it's a still lake, of course, but it gives her temporary physical invulnerability for as long as her breath is held (so she can jump in if someone is firing shots at her). She can technically take someone with her and have them merge with the water too, as long as she's holding onto them, but holding onto someone takes more energy and therefore limits how long she can hold her breath.

3. Ominous Presence (Dark) - Attack Power 3/5
Orleien is able to infuse her shadow with her energy. When a target in under her shadow, their equilibrium and sense of well-being is thrown off. Not everyone is affected the same way since everyone experiences illness differently, but it's most common to start feeling nauseous, dizzy, short of breath, anxious, fatigued, or a combination of side-effects. The longer one is exposed and the bigger the shadow cast on the person, the more effective the feelings of illness. Removing oneself from the shadow for a minute generally reverses all ill effects. Orleien's shadow, of course, depends on the light source.

4. Ink Toxin (Dark + Water) - Attack Power 3/5
After creating Dark Mist of some form, if Orleien also uses her Ominous Presence, she can charge the mist (or dark water if it's raining) with toxic effects. Breathing in the mist or drinking the affected water leaves the victim sick for as long as the water/vapour is in their body (they feel better once it gets all flushed out--usually after a day or two if they drink enough clean water). The effects are not immediate, and can appear within a couple of hours. The more Ink Toxin ingested, the sicker the target will get, and it is possible to die from Ink Toxin poisoning (drinking about a cup full is fatal, but it's rare someone would swallow enough water or breathe in enough mist to die).

5. Dirge (Water) - Attack Power 4/5
Orleien will usually take a deep breath and sing to direct a powerful stream of water that appears roughly an inch away from her mouth. The notes direct the power and direction of the stream, and can be powerful enough to knock an armoured knight far back (people not wearing armour may get impaled). The stream falls powerless when she runs out of breath and she requires a lot of concentration to direct the stream in complex ways (plus it requires more notes and she might run out of breath by then). She's most effective when she's nearest to the target because than she doesn't have to prolong her notes as much for the stream to travel.

Not much is known about Orleien's upbringing, except that she is a Krome that used to live in a Krome community in a cavern in Zios, located near the Zios-Insund borders. Seeing the sun before then was somewhat rare for her, as most of the community was fearful of being found by outsiders and being once again persecuted. However, hunter-gatherers int he community often came back with marvelous things such as flowers, feathers, and colourful masks. She liked seeing those things and became curious about the world outside the cavern. When she was 16, she left the community, and occasionally implies that she did so due to not wanting to follow the same customs, beliefs, and traditions.

She has been traveling around Zios for years now, often on foot and occasionally by hitchhiking, often running into dangerous situations that she luckily was able to escape through her magical skills. (Good thing Zios is so full of rivers to just dive into!). She has grown a liking to Pascas, the Zios capital, as she finds she can easily blend in with the rest of the people there by sporting a masquerade mask.

She doesn't care much about the region's conflicts and the war with Valoria or anything like that. Her priorities are more about staying alive and guaranteeing her safety and comfort. She often makes a living through the kindness of others or by occasionally working by dancing in theaters or brothels.

Other Information:
She is a character adapted from the main universe that most of my characters come from. >__> She was made in 2010 as a side character to flesh out parts of Heimdl's "mysterioussss" past. I like drawing her because she's one of the rarer "really dainty and feminine" characters I have, so i thought I may as well use her in this.

P.S. Although in the "meta-verse" she knows Heimdl, and may even allude to him vaguely, don't be confused that and don't start mentioning meta-verse stuff to Myriad-Orleien a lot in RPs, because it will honestly make no sense. XD

The best way to get me to RP? Draw pictures of my OCs interacting with your OCs and I'll feel obligated to write a comment, fave, and have my character react. LOL

I also decided to add dates in case I forgot when I used the GP for that skill. xD
SAmaryllis Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I guess so far it's not so bad since there aren't that many comments on the GP journal and I can always go back and check! Plus most......of the cmments are from me anyway, so........

Meibatsu Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

Let that jealousy fuel you to do more art! IT'S THE ONLY WAY!!! O___O
amberxsupernova Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012

Her powers are so interesting! I love her octopus theme ehehe~
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That's right! Her dislike of confrontations and passiveness = doormat powers!
Yeah~~ She has a bit of vanity in her. But not so much that it seems like she's vain. idk how to explain. She is kind of tricky. XD

I still need to read and comment over everyone's profiles or something.. @___@ So much.. reading.. Just sitting there in massage box!
Yeah! Just sit and be distant and observe other people together. XD

Hehehe.. yeah~! When I first made her, I kept thinking that she needed to be mysterious and dark.. like a deep sea octopus!
SAmaryllis Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Awww these profiles aren't too bad! Most of them are fairly short and sweet~~ XD Wahaha I feel so good right now, though, I got alllll my deviations stack to 0! 8D A nice fresh start for this school year haha! Let's see how long that lasts... >w>

Eeee octopi are kind of really cute...most of them are very shy! *__* She doesn't do too well camouflaging like an octopus, though, with her super nice hair. XDDD
