You are Mastermind Jalika Tenretni, Stealing Savant of The Locksmith Union, an Elf. You have pointed ears and silver-flecked dark eyes. Your black hair is long and straight, and is worn in a simple, pulled-back style held in place by a tangled mass of barbed wire. You have smooth skin. You are short for an Elf. You are an adult. Your shoulder has a tattoo of a great shadowed forest with countless eyes peering from the darkness. You are in good shape.
You are wearing a dull serpent earcuff, a dull serpent earcuff, a dark steel torque, a dark red linen bandana, a dark suede lootsack, an animite spider-clasped baldric, a gloomwood khuj with a dark purple blade, a dark green Elven silk shirt, a platinum ring with the crest of the Ranger's guild set in black diamonds and jade, a pair of copper zills, a dark gem pouch, a spidersilk tote, a metallic lockpick ring, a pair of low-slung leather wrangler's breeches, a simple quiver and a pair of soft soled leather sandals.
Jalika left her farmland home just north of Kaerna Village as soon as she was sure she could be accepted into a guildhall. Traveling on foot to The Crossing, she quickly made inquiries as to the Rangers Guild and joined their ranks.
She worked for many years studying mostly under Kalika's watchful gaze and became an avid swordsman, but struggled with several bouts of sickness. With a few years of relative health behind her most of her empaths believed she was in the clear but she took a turn for the worse and found herself walking down the Starry Road. Though some believe it to be a hallucination, she believes that Damaris met her along this road, and promised to return her to Elanthia if she would help take care of children and the young she met along the way.
Swearing to this agreement, Jalika woke to find herself near a streambed, somewhat changed, but very much alive. She immediately traveled north to the town of Langenfirth to speak with Tolle and began her journey with the Rangers once again. Picking up his favored bow, she worked harder than ever, focusing on the arts of archery, sleight of hand, and elemental magics.
To fulfill her promise to Damaris she began a small group of Rangers called The Band, who use "aquired" goods and wealth to support the studies and well-being of young ones just starting out in the guild. She also became a sister in the Locksmith Union.
