Introduction & Character Info:

Tylla Goraya is the Daughter of Tabakov & Chakhai Goraya, and is currently the Head of the
Goraya Clan; a group of "Ka'ar" nomads.

Tylla is a strong-willed, hard-headed person who nonetheless is also quite emotionally empathic and thoughtful, which has given her unique insights in her career as a shaman and in her observations of the natural world. She believes that the natural world is both cruel, and motherly, and that while life must thrive, it cannot be done without austerity, sacrifice, balance, and proper living. Tylla is also a warrior and seeks not only to defend those she loves, but also seeks out her enemies to challenge them directly for their transgressions; especially Jishrimites.

Tylla is also a nomadic pastoralist and thusly has very few personal belongings that she could truly not live without. She is constantly in tune with the movements of the seasons, of migratory animals, and the weather; moving with them rather than against them.

Tylla receives Theodra's Blessing as Tier One.


The morning brings dew upon the grass outside her home, and as she walks she finds herself captivated by a distant figure that seems to be watching her. A great stag, white in colour with antlers of silver, almost ethereal for how unusual it is. The winds blow, the calls of various wildlife seem more intense, and for all of a moment she is lost in a sensation of feeling, hearing, and being part of nature all at once, enough that she stumbles to her knees and feels the dew soak into the fabric at her knees. When she focuses again, there is no stag, and the sensations fade to a comfortable normality, but she is changed in a way she likely understands. Tylla is now a T1 of Theodra.

Spells & Passives:


Spell Points
[3 SP]

[0/3]



DETECTION
Divine: Theodra.
Tier: 1
Action: Prayer & Touch.
Cost: 2 SP
Duration: 30 minutes.
Spell: The blessed places their bare hand on the ground and utters a soft prayer, willing all footsteps and tracks made within the past 48 hours to reveal themselves in a 15 block radius. The prints will glow a soft silver hue to the blessed only, and any blood/hair/fur will glow similarly if it was left there in the same two day span. The glow will fade after the duration.


NATURE'S ILLUMINATION
Divine: Theodra.
Tier: 1
Action: Prayer.
Cost: 2 SP
Duration: 30 minutes.
Spell: The caster utters a brief prayer and wills an area of 10b to be influenced by Theodra for a duration of time. Leaves float downwards of either green hues or those thematic to fall, dispersing within a minute of being on the ground. Silver feathers linger in the air above emitting a soft glow on par with the light of a candle. The caster and one other designated target, so long as they remain in the area, will have their minds unable to be tampered with by divine or arcane means for the duration (at DM discretion in events), given a sense of clarity and clear thoughts. This only applies to T1/Apprentice level spells, including calming ones.
Note: At each tier of the divine system, you may add one more target to be protected in this radius.


NATURE’S DEN
Divine: Theodra.
Tier: 1
Action: Touch.
Cost: 1SP
Duration: 12 hours.
Spell: The blessed can will an area to become a more advanced and comfortable place to reside when out in the wilderness. Dense foliage moves up as a roof and draps down to the ground, forming a sort of tent of natural materials or even furs and leathers depending on what would be more of a camouflage in the area. In some cases it forms out of rock if that is the better material for its location. It is large enough to comfortably fit two people, and stays insulated enough to ward off the cold of an autumn night, but will require a fire for wintry settings.

PIERCING STRIKE
Divine: Theodra.
Tier: 1
Action: Touch.
Cost: 1 SP
Duration: One day.
Spell: The blessed chooses a weapon or item of choice (sword, dagger, arrow, etc) and upon the spell taking hold, it gleams silver. This weapon will, upon its next use, pierce twice as deep if impacting flesh. Only one weapon or item may be imbued at any one time, and it must be something that can be held and considered a ‘weapon’ or ‘ammo’. The effect wears off after one day if it has not been used.

PURIFY
Action: Prayer and the holding of a container of water.
Cost: 1SP
Duration: One day.
Spell: The caster blesses the equivalent to one cup’s worth of water and changes it’s qualities. It must remain in a container, and contact with said container must be held for at least ten seconds to fully turn its contents. The contents may be poured into another container but will turn back into water the next day. This cannot be stockpiled, for any liquid will revert back after the duration. The following can be made by any Blessed:

Holy Water: Undead, Vyres, Mages, and Heretics (those who worship something not of the Pantheon) are burnt by this water like it has the same properties of boiling water. It causes nasty burns, but these burns will heal over the span of three days and leave behind no markings, not can the burns become infected. If consumed by any individual not those it burns, it eases and heals: headaches, minor bruises, stomach upsets, scratches.
Lifeblood: This blood can be used to satisfy any Vyre as sustenance, tasting wonderful and lightening their mood. This blood does not burn anyone, not holding the same properties as Holy Water. A small circle made of this liquid has been known to ward away supernatural entities such as ghosts/wraiths for a limited time, as if the blood itself reminds them of the living. It can be smelt as normal blood would be, and may trigger Feral Vyres in the same manner.
Divine Oil: This oil cannot be used to harm another, but it becomes scented and ideal for the use of anointing in ceremonies. If the container is lit, it will burn for one day as a small fire with hues thematic to the specific divine (up to the player), though will extinguish if removed from the container and return to water.


ILLUMINATE
Action: An uttering of; “Theodra, let them hear me.”
Cost: 1SP
Duration: Five minutes.
Spell: A halo of light forms behind the caster’s head, the colour thematic to their deity. For up to five minutes, those in RP chat range will be able to hear them clearly (providing they are not behind a wall or so on) and consider them paying attention to. They may instil a faint sense of Calm, Fear, or Courage within the audience.
Note: Should a higher tier blessed cast this spell in the same radius, it will over-ride the lower one.


VISION
Action: Touch, or the offering of an item thematic to the divine (holy symbol, coin, bone, letter, etc).
Cost: 1SP
Duration: One minute.
Spell: By touching the target or offering an item, the caster wills the scene of something vaguely thematic to their divine in the mind of another, though it is not distracting enough to hinder them in combat or tense situations. With enough focus, the target can try to tune it out, but it cannot be entirely ignored. Can only be used on the same target once per day.

DIVINE WORD
Action: The prayer of, “[Divine], carry my words.”
Cost: 1SP per rank.
Duration: Must be asked and answered in the same day.
Spell: The caster is able to send a word or sentence depending on the rank it is used, which become available as your rank higher in divine tier. It can travel any distance, and the target will hear it spoken in their mind with the voice of the caster. The caster must know their target in some manner, be it name, face, or alias, the spell will work based on intention for who it is for and cannot be accidentally sent to another. This is a universal language, heard and understood by each as clearly as their native tongue.
Rank I - T1
The caster can send one single word to their target. They cannot be given a word in response.

FEAST OF THE GODS
Action: Prayer. They must keep their hands on the location on which to summon it for one minute.
Cost: 1-3SP
Duration: One hour.
Spell: The caster summons forth a platter of food that can feed up to three people. It can be cast upon an existing surface (table, for example), or the floor. Eating divine food will restore some energy, ease minor pain, and give a sense of warmth and comfort from the divine in question. Once the spell ends, everything flickers away.
This spell can be cast at 1SP per person, up to three.
Feast of the Hunt
Carved tableware of various wood types forms, with cups made of animal bone and utensils of pure silver. It sits upon a thin grey pelt. A modest meal, but a gamey one, with meats served using the same herbs found growing nearby. Refreshing water is served.

BAPTISM
Action: Prayer, an offering to the divine, and touch.
Cost: 3SP
Duration: Permanent.
Spell: The caster offers something thematic to their divine (an animal, a corpse, golden goblet, sword, etc - It should be notable) and prays whilst marking a symbol upon an infant anywhere from newborn to three years old. This marking can be in water, ash, blood, etc. and does not denote where a marking (no bigger than an inch long/wide) will form. The marking location is at the choice of the parents OOC, and whilst most markings will be replaced by another, it is possible for a secondary mark to be present as a 'birthmark' only (in the cases of two parents of different faiths). Clarify with Divine staff if it is applicable.
Note: This can be cast on a pregnant mother instead, in which the child will be born with the marking already applied, automatically applying to both twins/triplets if applicable.
Mark of the Huntress
The offering disperses into a cloud of wild grasses and leaves that float about the area for a while before vanishing entirely. A mark appears upon them as a silver feather or arrow that shimmers slightly. Children who grow up with this mark may show traits of being a little explorative, climbing things more often than others of their age. Stray leaves often appear in their hair or clothes, with little explanation.

A silver ring forms around the pupil, intensifying (or glowing) in times of heightened emotion or adrenaline, up to the player.

They instinctively know what direction North is.

Divine Log and Progress:

Minor Acts:

Skull Cups | Date Unknown, But I know Lenore DM'd it.


After she and Thryss fought off a few Jishrimites hanging around the sewers of Storm's Landing and dropped a wounded Thryss off at the hospital, Tylla returned and slew three more, took their heads and turned them into skull cups. These cups are used in religious activities or as vessels for special guests.

Botched Hunt | 3rd of Winterfeast, Year of Dragons (2021)

Tylla held a small hunt in which she offered a libation of vodka to Theodra. A goat was the only prize of the hunt after the goat's body fell of a cliff and nearly crushed Tylla's husband, Boe. The goat was in bad shape by the time it landed, and so Tylla decided not to use it as an offering to Theodra (though it did not go to waste). [Link]

A Mentor | 2nd of Snowdown, Year of Dragons

After a long discussion about Theodra and the other Gods, Rook decided to take Tylla under his wing as a student. Tylla often disagrees with much of what Rook teaches her, but tries to fit it into her worldview regardless.


Commiseration | 13th of Snowdown, Year of Dragons

Tylla and Rook discuss Theodra once more, though this time the topic is mostly on how she views Her as a smaller- but no less important- manifestation of Shalherana. She also discusses her feelings that Theodrans can be a little cold, and that they might benefit from embracing vulnerability and togetherness.

Ovoos & Offerings | 9th of Sporebloom, Year of Dragons

Tylla created a rock-stack shrine (also called an ovoo) at Praes Divina replete with offerings such as bones, cups of milk, and teabricks. She also assisted Candice Kane in creating a Hunter's Pot within Theodra's section at the monument. Furthermore, Tylla offered up a dao-style sword of her own making to Theodra at the Grand Cathedral. Praes Divina Event Link.

Wisent Hunt | 2nd of Sunbright, Year of Dragons

Tylla hosted a bison hunt in preparation for Boetius's party. Before the hunt, Tylla offered up a libation of fermented horse milk to Theodra. During the hunt, it was decided by the party (consisting of Aelyth, Aryn, and Aleksei) that they would hunt a three-horned, four-eyed bison in order to remove Jishrim's corruption from the herd. Initially, the hunt went well as Tylla and her horse, Vosan, charged and distracted the bison 'Three-Horn', but as the rest of the herd grew agitated, Tylla's horse was intercepted and wounded by a younger bison, causing her to be flung from her horse. Just as the bison was about to charge Tylla, Aelyth shot the beast in the neck, killing it immediately. While the others began the process of field-dressing the bison, Tylla tearfully euthanized Vosan and plans to give up his heart to Theodra so that he might join Her pack in the afterlife. Vosan's skull and hooves will be hung from her ovoo in Verdant Valley, as is customary. [

Major Acts and Events:

Hunting Lessons | 16th of Snowdown, Year of Dragons


Tylla, Marian, and Rook went on a hunt in Theodra's name, in which a goat was killed by the two apprentices. The mountain goat was split evenly between the two, and she offered up two of the rib bones to Theodra. [
Link]

Dancing with the Devil | 4th of Springrise, Year of Dragons


In an attempt to tame a Tremorback Devil as proof of her worthiness to Theodra, Tylla ventured out to the southern wastes. She encountered a pack of juveniles led by an elder, but unfortunately, she was neither able to tame the elder nor impress the juveniles. Ultimately, she killed the elder Tremorback, mounting its preserved body atop her wall in her ger. In a meditation afterwards, she notes that she almost wanted to flee and allow the majestic animal to live, but she was reminded of Theodra's fifth tenet: do not give mercy, and do not expect it. [Link]

Honoring the Hunted | 17th of Springrise, Year of Dragons

After her hunt, Tylla organized a feast in honor of the Tremorback and to Theodra. She offered up the animal's heart in a fire after extolling the virtues and lessons that Theodra has given to all animals- beast and man alike. Just as she was about to drop it into the fire, a hawk appeared from the sky, took the heart and dropped it into the fire before it flew off. With this sign from Theodra, Tylla's spirits were raised and the feast continued on until it ended with a somewhat dramatized story recalling the hunt, with Tylla giving the Tremorback a few lines of dialogue.

This happened a while ago, but I was too busy to announce this; Tylla is Tier One! May I have Tylla's sheet moved to the Blessed section? Lenore
