So I don't really upload anything here anymore do I? I guess with this being a new year I can maybe change that, I suppose this is as good a place to start as any because hey, nudity! This is another RPG character, Eilizeta, a drow sword dancer of Eilistraee. Eilizeta was born in the underdark to a noble family of middling importance in drow society whose name she no longer remembers. They were secure enough in their position, always striving for something more, but lacking the power to make anything significant happen. This constant state of mediocrity led to frustration and discontent within the family, even more so than in most drow houses. When Eilizeta was only a year old her mother and aunt conspired together to kill their mother and lay claim to the house, as is the tradition among the drow. This union went over as well as one would expect, and the two sisters were at each others' throats within the year, both figuratively and literally. Eilizeta's aunt would prove the victor, killing Eilizeta's mother and taking sole control of the house. She ordered one of her handmaidens to execute the infant Eilizeta in order to purge the family line of the weakness of the lesser half, but unknown to the new matron her handmaiden was secretly a priestess of the drow goddess Eilistraee, outcast and patron deity of those drow who yearn to reject the rule of Lolth, return to the surface, and reconcile with the elven folk. She used her contacts to secret Eilizeta away to the surface and into the custody of an enclave of elven druids and other naturalists who cared not about her origins, telling the matron that the deed had been done. Unconcerned with such a trivial detail the new matron never bothered to look into the matter and never gave her niece a second thought.
Eilizeta was raised by this druidic enclave, far away from the influence of the underdark. She learned of their ways instead of those of her home, mostly unaware of drow society save the tales she occasionally heard from her adoptive family. From time to time her adoptive mother, the priestess who had liberated her from the underdark, would return to the surface to meet with others of her order and to pay her adoptive daughter a visit. Though the two did not get to see each other often they remained close. A few years ago the priestess brought news of the dancing maiden of shadows Eilistraee, patron of those drow who wished to turn from Lolth and seek peace with their surface-dwelling kin. Eilizeta was already of the same mindset and became an eager convert. Though her love of the forests and the lands beneath the stars didn't fade, she added to it a greater love of the arts, beauty, song, dance, and swordplay, something she particularly excelled at. In time she was taken on as a sword dancer, the priestesses of Eilistraee devoted to leading the charge to liberate those oppressed by the drow and forging peaceful relations with the surface folk.
Eilizeta (Ellie to her friends) is kind at heart, quick with her wit, and very open towards those she considers friends. She is however a bit more militant than some others, a result of her role within the worship of Eilistraee. While she believes in the power of peace and love, she knows there are some enemies of these ideals that can only be overcome through the use of blade and magic, and she doesn't hesitate to do so. To say she isn't shy is an understatement, like most followers of the dancing maiden she prefers to go naked whenever possible, a sign of deference to her deity as well as a dedication to the belief that all she needs is her faith and her sword. And besides, she'll admit if pressed, it's fun.
