Nirah is slightly pale by Ethian standards, but modestly aesthetic and approachable. She wears her dark hair loose about her shoulders and often has something of a windswept appearance. As a result of constant fighting her skin has become a canvas for scars, scrapes, and bruises, mostly on her back, torso, and legs. The most prominent (and recent) one is across her left brow, the result of a grazing arrow from a faction skirmish in Stillmoor.
She possesses two pieces of jewelry. On her right hand she wears a simple, elegant band of platinum with a leaf-shaped emerald set in the center. Around her neck hangs a lengthy, silvery chain that holds three evenly-spaced, spherical gemstones: garnet, emerald, and ruby. Both pieces of jewelry are hidden beneath glove and tunic in armor, but displayed freely when in casual clothing.
Nirah is very expressive and most people can read her with little difficulty.
Fashion of Choice: Nirah prefers dark and royal colors, and a distinct combination of black and white. She dislikes anything particularly showy, especially garments with extra ruffles or lace. Though she was once a bit of a tomboy, sometimes she can be seen in robes and dresses.
Armor of Choice: As a mage, Nirah favors tunic and pants over robes. All of her actual armor is dark, imbued cloth that emphasizes freedom of movement. She possesses cold-weather gear for traversing the Peaks and a white robe for the desert.
Weapons of Choice: Nirah's staff and wand were crafted by her mentor, Daul. She treasures them deeply and is never without them, even in social settings. An inactive turquoise capstone hangs from the head of the staff as an ornament, a relic from some weapon she previously wielded.
Special Abilities: Planar Attunement (sensory) - Nirah is more attuned to the planes than most mages and Ascended/Machine-born. Though her primary element is fire, she can lure any of the planes. Through her attunement she can "hear" elemental forces and gauge their potential and general mood (i.e. restless, malicious, benevolent, etc.).
Illusion - Nirah can disguise herself as a crate or bush. The results are sometimes amusing.
Versatility - Though Nirah is primarily a pyromancer and wields fire against riftspawn, she utilizes domination magic against more intelligent opponents. Nirah is also an adept chloromancer and can heal herself and others. She rarely engages in combat in this role.
Alignment: Neutral Good
Motivations: Safety (Telara), vengeance (Wanton), destruction (Storm Legion)
Disposition: Cheerful, skittish
Outlook: Nirah is stubborn to the core and brings a sense of optimism into the war each day, but she is quietly certain of Telara's damnation. Unless the Guardians and Defiant take advantage of the Blood Storm's divisiveness instead of imitating it, Telara is doomed.
Religion/Philosophy: Nirah regards the Vigil with a mixture of confusion and growing rebelliousness. She relies only on herself and her Telaran allies in battle and all other things and has a strong sense of loyalty to those close to her.
Sexuality: Straight. Though Nirah isn't homophobic, she finds same-sex partnerships strange and becomes uncomfortable when women flirt with her.
Positive Personality Traits: Cheerful, stubborn, protective, sympathetic, open
Negative Personality Traits: Short-tempered, stubborn, evasive, naive, childish
Misc. Quirks: 1) Nirah is uneasy around individuals who have some or most of their face obscured. 2) She often refers to the wind as "the hissing." 3) Nirah is embarrased to a childish degree by men with their chests revealed, but not women or herself. 4) She dislikes being called a lady. She's insists she's not one. 5) Nirah is extremely jumpy, a poor quality for a mage. Luckily she just teleports away when startled, instead of setting things on fire.
Guild: Phoenix Vanguard
Guild Rank: Scholar
Faction: Dragonslayer Covenant - Nirah travels to Shimmersand daily to cull the numbers of the Wanton, along with the overabundance of riftspawn from Fire and Earthen rifts. The Dragonslayers regard her as an fighting ally and respect her as an Ascended determined to kill as many invaders as possible.

History: Nirah is somewhat of a question mark among the Defiant. Though introduced recently as Daul's mage apprentice and Viscol Rah'zin's sister, some wonder why she hasn't appeared long before now. It is rumored that she has past ties to the Guardians, and thus she is regarded with suspicion by Meridian's authorities who catch wind of such speculation. She fits best with the minority who doggedly prioritize fighting the Blood Storm over the Guardians in Telara's three-pronged war. Her past remains ambiguous and is rarely spoken of.
