New updates after the latest staff post will be put in Blue.





Name:
Dara Silveira
Element:
Water
Rank:
Enthralled






Fledgeling:
Within days of a bond being formed with a water elemental,
the individual finds that they have begun to grow silver scales upon the backs of hands and the tops of feet,
with occasional stray ones upon the cheeks or shoulders.
Their eyes become more of a blue hue, lines throughout the iris apparent regardless of the colour of the rest.


Enthralled:
The iris becomes blue, anything from a deep ocean to a light cerulean, and it very slowly moves around the pupil like the slow flowing of water.
The silver hued scales expand upward to mid thigh and shoulder, and their digits become webbed.
Along the underside of each arm a fin has formed, pressed flat to the arm unless in water.







Fledgeling:
Cleanse (Passive, Times 'used': 52)
They are able to drink seawater or river water and find no salt, and no impurities take hold of them, as if they filter out the bad.

Enthralled:
Current II (Active, Times used: 35(I), 8(II))
I: They are able to move water (and only water) freely around them providing it is of a quantity no more than a pint.
If the liquid is mixed with something else, it cannot be moved. Holy water cannot be tampered with.
II: They can move water as they did before, but now in many times the capacity, a barrel is a good comparison
.
Restoration (Passive, Times 'used': 9)
To submerge themselves in water will restore them, leaving themselves feeling rejuvenated, and minor wounds such as scrapes and bruises will heal themselves at a rapid pace so long as they remain submerged. This is not for anything beyond that, wounds that need a medic will still need a medic.
Clarity II (Passive, Times 'used': 32(I), 9(II))
I: They are able to see underwater without any sting or injury to opening their eyes in said water types, and it is not blurred until it at arms length.
II: Their sight is not hindered underwater by salt, toxins, or blurred vision, and can see around them with no issue. This is limited only in the sense of actual light not reaching the depths as it would on land, however, and this should be considered.

Notable Actions/Events:
◈ 24/07: Bond (Willing) with Water Elemental
12/09: 100+ Total casts (Silly Milestone)

[Daily]
◈ [Fledgeling] As is expected with a great deal of changes happening at once, Dara finds herself intrigued with the alterations.
Several new abilities require further study, to learn of the extent of their use and to find out how they fit in her changing life now. This results in her testing these abilities frequently, almost enough to make them a part of her daily life as soon as she begins to get used to each.
With one of such more so than the others, one which grants her the means to safely nourish herself on water from the rivers and sea, this too is something she finds herself more easily doing as by habit the more she makes use of the ability.
With her affinity and attachment to water growing, the young Moor finds herself frequently seeking bodies of water to submerge herself in, though soon she favors swimming out into the sea over baths and pools if she has the option to.

◈ [Update 1] Trips out to sea and long swims within Dara's capabilites have practically become normal to her now. There's barely a day where she misses out on taking at least one if not several long swim out into open waters.

[Enthralled] With her increased affinity to the water and the added means of properly spending much more time in places such as deep rivers or the sea, Dara now finds herself doing thorough diving trips dailing during her prolonged swimming, basking in the ease at which she can now explore underwater without her former limitations. Now that swimming rejuvenates her instead of tiring her out and her swiftness in the water has notably increased, she is making almost all of her travels possible through water by swimming to her destination herself.
While on land, Dara tends to make use of her control over water to salvage the amounts she now leaves behind from her wander, usually seeing to safely deposit it back into a river or the sea.


◈ ...

[Actions]
◈ [Fledgeling] With her preference of spending plenty of time in the water, Dara has started to make changes with her wardrobe, favoring attire that allows her to either more easily undress herself for a swim, even being thoughtful of potential outfits that'd let her enjoy her swimming without having to resort to (much) undressing. Her increasingly serene nature may not make it much of a worry, but she still sticks to having a bit of modesty.
The fact her main home is located at the edge of a desert already makes less restrictive clothing and more frequent swimming favorable, the young woman finding herself more so in the city from dusk till dawn, while the sun has become just that bit more unbearable in the day.
This changes little when she travels, something she has found herself doing more frequently in part to not linger in places during moments of unpleasant heat. However, as inquisitive as she still is about her capabilities, her wandering is also driven by an interest to seek out different waters, to see how those affect her, how those feel to her compared to the part of the sea at home which she has already frequented plenty.
However, it doesn't just remain limited to the water beyond the edge of the land. While the rain used to not be as favored by her, she now finds herself enjoying any downpour enough to linger in them without portable cover.
Oppositely, it is not just the heat during a bright day in Linistel that is starting to get to her bit by bit. Bonfires, campfires, fireplaces.. just anything involving fire has become something she'd rather keep her distance from, finding the 'drying' effect it has on her too uncomfortable and increasingly harmful as to not actually wanting to test out the extent of how well she can endure. If she does have to move about in a warm area overall though, and it is simply a matter of the sunlight directly touching her, it isn't that rare to see her with something such as a parasol to lessen at least some of the directly applied heat by the sun.

◈ [Update 1] With the 'call' of the sea growing that bit more noticeable to her over time, Dara finds herself willingly embracing the urge to remain out on longer swimming and diving trips to explore the wonders the ocean has to offer, in relatively safe parts of it for now.
Other than that, her frequency of spending time in the water has expanded to her traveling small distances via options such a rivers, lakes, the seaside and so on... in case she has the such available when moving from one place to the next.

[Enthralled] Now that her body has adapted to a point that she linger as long in the water as she pleases, she finds herself remaining in such for even longer periods of times. No longer suffering from fatigue due to the energizing feeling of being submerged, as well as the improved visibility beneath the water's surface and a lack of concern for having to hold her breath anymore, have given Dara the proper means to explore below the waves for what secrets and wonders lie within watery depths.. depths that she can handle, that is.
Befitting to these changes, attire has been adjusted again, making her movements in the water even less restricted by what she wears.
Her compulsion to douse fire is not as readily embraced in full though.
While she is liable to end the existence of some torches here, a fire by the beach there, she still knows of the different purposes of various sources of fire and her mind, despite no longer being truly concerned or phased by almost anything, still contains awareness that haphazardly dousing any fire could attract unwanted attention to her. So she does the other sensible alternatives for those sources of fire, straying away from their presence when she does find herself on land.


◈ ...

[Thoughts]
◈ [Fledgeling] Dara always has been a generally calm if not stern person. That doesn't mean she was perfectly serene though, strain and uncertainty hidden from even her family especially during her time as a duchess and the time following her forfeit of the position.
With the presence of the elemental though, Dara finds herself embracing a proper calmth and serenity that have done wonders in dampening such negative feelings and leave her, with what she believes, is a clearer mind and focus.
Her concerns and care in general for certain matters has diminished as a result of this, however. With less responsibilities burdening her these days though, she finds this to not be much of an issue, as there are still things she cares about.. or rather, can care about, that don't affect her ability to sate the frequent lure back to the sea. Even so, she makes an effort to still pay attention to those important to her in her life, for as her life is ever more tied to the sea, she still holds care for her family on the land.
Besides that, she still has a few plans she wishes to realize. Now even more so together with how they might affect her current state.

◈ [Update 1] As her draw to the sea expands, it is perhaps for the best that her mind has only limited obligations to think of back in Linistel.
Fortunately, no longer being tied to the duties of a duchess leaves Dara with less reason not to spend her time indulging in these urges that bring her back out into the water with increasing frequency.

[Enthralled] Dara's bond with her elemental may have drastically tightened, but she still holds on to her sense of self at present. With her mind now practically serene at all times, she opts to make use of the focus she has, beyond the urges and habits she has grown used to embracing, to still progress through as much of her intended research on her Spiritblessed state in case she progresses to a point which could leave her completely apathetic to even as much. For now, she makes an effort to not throw aside lingering thoughts and memories of people she knows regardless of what little of an emotional connection there is still be left, if even any.
She still considers and pursues a remaining few of her current goals that don't conflict with her connection and time spent in the water. Fortunately, most of her self-study involves making use of and testing the extent of her capabilities, thus keeping her urges appeased enough with the time spent out at sea, though she does still try to not overindulge and still embrace some form of temperance.
The increased harm from heat has made her more wary of traveling in hotter climates, generally not doing so unless there is reason or random chance that she ends up in the area. Even so, those visits are more liable to be exclusively at night if its sufficiently cooler.


◈ ...






Just a spot to post the RP leading up to the bond.
Don't expect something too riveting in quality.

23/07 - Day 0:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Decided when the downpour fittingly started mid-RP to just take it in stride,
seeing the element of choice. Didn't affect the outcome of the day but was fun improv all the same.


24/07 - Day 1:
Part 1
Part 2
DC REE
Part 3

Part 4
Part 5

She finds herself swimming out at sea for extended periods of time and caring less about the responsibilities of home...​

Did a complete rewrite of the Update Log from its.. honestly messy 'checklist' version into a more written out segment that covers the previous listings into something hopefully more cohesive and relevant to one another. Also I found that the three different sections had too many overlapping things between them, so I've swapped things around to focussing on daily activities, the way her actions and behaviour has been influenced, and finally her changing mental state.

Hopefully this gives a better overview as well.
That, and things are now 'tagged' with what stage and staff update they are relevant to, in case of future changes.

Home is no longer of importance, nor what ties her there. The ocean calls, and she goes to be one with it for a time before returning only to be irritated at the location.

She is 'Enthralled' now, and as such, requires a DM if any attempts at unbonding are made.​
