Finally got to drawing another character. The second I coloured those stripes on the legwear I regretted drawing them but too late to change that now. Should have tried a similar design as the top I think. First time trying to draw an older character as well as feet.
Name: Hiera Nolayne
Age: 70 (1520 PY)
Aether type: Wind (Gale and Tension style)
Skills: Reading social cues, Haggling, Gambling
Hometown: Gussar Village
A resident of Gussar Village and a Drakean that everyone in the village knows, Hiera is the type of person who says exactly what is on their mind should it be relevant. She knows what she wants and will say what she needs to to get her point across, though she doesn't tend to be harsh in her words.
Many also describe her as a very shrewd Drakean, she has for a long time been a Fortune-teller in Gussar Village and as such also ends up being someone who people tend to open up to.
Gussar Village itself is another simple village alike Talvale, though rather than being near a forest it is on the border of hills and mountains and a lot of its trade comes from mining. Gussar Village will often trade metals and ores with Talvale village for wood and other forest-based materials.
Hiera lives alone at her home in Gussar Village but she does have a 30-year old daughter called Aria who also lives in the village and aims to become a Fortune-teller like her mother. The two are still close and always see each other most days.
Hiera also has another daughter in her 40s, Hallie Nolayne, but she hasn't been heard from since she left the village 20 years back aiming to be a trader.
Hiera had a husband, Barle Nolayne, he was a loving husband who worked hard as a miner for his family. Sadly, 8 years ago an accident happened in the mining tunnels, one of the support beams failed and the tunnel collapsed. He didn't make it out alive.
Hiera was distraught but support from the villagers she had aided on many occassions helped her get back on her feet.
As a Fortune-teller Hiera's main form is using divining cards to predict futures, people often talk about their lives when she is reading their fortunes so she ends up becoming someone people confide in, years of doing this have made her well acquainted with giving people advice and sharpening her ability to read social cues.
This ability also leads her to being very effective in gambling, she has a good poker-face but can pick up the smaller cues that others may not show on their face.
One last little fun note, as a Wind Drakean she can create small spikes of gravity, one thing she likes to do is create a small area of gravity under herself so she semi-levitates, though she keeps her tail and a foot on the floor to keep balance.
Sometimes people ask her to do it to them so they can try and more often than not they aren't used to the imbalanced gravity and fall flat on their backs which offers a small amount of amusement to Hiera.
