Yup! Here she is, as brought to us in comic book-y sketch form by
Akina is seriously great! The purchase was well worth it! You should all go commission her right now!
So...who is Morina? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, she's a thing called a Water Genasi, a race you can choose to play in the game Dungeons and Dragons. Unlike most Water Genasi, she's half-genie (the Shantae jokes write themselves, I assure you) and half-elf, instead of the usual half-genie/half-human deal. Specifically, her genie half is a Marid, the most powerful (and most haughty) type of Genie out there. I could get into all the nitty-gritty details about Marids and the like, but all you need to know is that, as Marids are water genies, Morina herself has some watery traits; she's amphibious, resists acid, and can use some water related abilities despite her class.
Oh right, class! She has one. She's a Monk, one of the 12 core D&D classes you can pick. Monks specialize in Dexterity and Wisdom, and Morina is no different! To be precise, she's a Four Elements Monk, which basically makes her like a bender from Avatar. In fact, I'm almost certain Avatar was the inspiration for the Way of the Four Elements. While Four Elements Monks can pick and choose what elemental abilities (called 'Disciplines') they want to use, Morina mostly uses earth and wind disciplines, but always has the good ole' Water Whip on standby.
It should be mentioned, however, that because the Way of the Four Elements Monk was terribly
implemented, the lore 'fluff' is better than the mechanics 'crunch.' Way of the Four Elements is consistently considered one of the worst subclasses. THANKFULLY, my DM took pity on me and allowed for the use of a crowdsourced 'fix' to Four Elements monks. If you have ANY desire to play a Four Elements Monk, I highly
recommend using the Way of Four Elements Remastered option. www.reddit.com/r/dndnext/comme…
I'd point to Fist of Unbroken Air and Spellfist Stance as two of the 'essential' options. These allow you to do hit-and-runs and attack after casting a spell, respectively, and Monks are basically known for the former and Four Elements Monks are known for the later, so they're good options. Beyond that, go nuts! Have fun! There are a TON of fun options in there! I get a lot of mileage out of Earth Reaches For Sky, myself.
So, why the goofy anime scarf, comic book-y look, and silly mask? Why, because she's a hero!
...Yes, she thinks she's a superhero. She's getting better at it, I swear! And due to her high wisdom, she's not completely bonkers. She even got a girlfriend! Since her girlfriend is a Druid, the two elemental cuties go well together.
I hope you all like Morina!
