I'm so happy you brought me with you! I never imagined that we would do such great things!

Aerie is a lawful good Avariel.
When asked about her past, Aerie becomes silent for a time, obviously saddened by the memory. She lived among the Avariel, the winged elves, and was captured by slavers when she was still very young. She shudders when she speaks of her first years in the circus, on display in a cage that restricted her movement to the point that her wings atrophied. They became infected... and Aerie can barely speak about the night when she was taken out of her cage and her wings were sawn off brutally to keep her alive. She was no longer of use to that circus, and were it not for the kindness of Quayle she surely would have died. He restored her to health and gave her a reason to continue living, and out of respect and generosity she learned the devotion of the Gnomish god Baervan Windwanderer. She speaks of Baervan with affection, yet still pays tribute to Aedrie Faenya, and approaches life outside the circus with a combination of wide-eyed innocence and wonder mixed with an inborn determination to fight against injustice.

it’s a pretty cool drawing. Only nitpik is that her breasts seem a little large for an elf.😅

Alter Breasts
Transmutation
Level: Brd 0, Sor/Wiz 0.
Components: V, S.
Casting Time: 1 action.
Range: Touch.
Targets: Creature touched.
Duration: 30 minutes/level.
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless).
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless).
Cast either on yourself or on others this spell can
confer upon the recipient of its magical effect either
‘fried eggs’ or ‘big wobbly fun bags’.
Anything from a Double-D down to an A-cup can be
given regardless of the gender of the target. This
allows the latest fashions to be worn whether buxom
or svelte is in season and allows a woman to appeal
to a breast man in spite of what fate has gifted her
with. In an age of snaggle-toothed crones and
muscular, hairy peasant women, a male mage who
casts this spell upon himself can make a very
convincing woman as well as giving himself
something to play with on long winter evenings.

OOh, good old BGII times :). I love the outfit, although I would have imagined it more simple and making her look fragile. Actually this makes her look more graceful and powerful at the same time :).

s0ulafein's avatar
s0ulafeinHobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks! Nope. I don't work in color. If you want you can color her by yourself. ;) (Wink)

I always liked Aerie ^_^

I know a lot didn't because of her personality. Honestly, with some encouragement, she comes into her own confidence and power, really. She looks great! :)

Thanks! I also like her. I think, It is demonstration of real strengh of protagonist to help her become stronger, rather than to be with other strenght characters like Viconia or Jaheira. Nod

I like Viconia, in the sense that if put in an actual "good" group, and not with people she conflicts with (Keldorn, Valygar, etc.), she can actually have an alignment shift from SoA to ToB.

Jaheria....meh....I'm with you on that one. But yeah, it shows that Aerie has real strength in her. It just got shaken so badly is all.

Viconia is the other extreme but I like her too.
Yep, Aerie have 
a normal character for person who spent years in cage and lost wings. I want to see on simple man and his character without legs in cage.
Jarkeld's avatar
Agreed. Having done a playthrough with each of them, I agree with Aerie and Viconia as being characters I enjoy and see growth in my opinion. Jaheria.....I just don't see it.

And definitely agree with your thoughts on what she went through.
