You see Thievery Legend Jalika Tenretni, Stealing Savant of The Locksmith Union, an Elven Ranger. Jalika has an angular face, pointed ears and a pair of cat-eye glasses with polished glaes frames enhancing her thickly lashed, deeply piercing grey eyes. Her Katamba black hair is below shoulder length and has soft side-swept bangs, and is worn in a deceptively careless-looking arrangement of upswept locks held in place by a darkstone hairstick inlaid with intricate silversteel webbing. She has tanned skin and a thin, agile figure. She is petite for an Elf. She appears to be young. Her forearm has a tattoo of a faded identification number. She is in good shape.
She is wearing the head and pelt of a cave bear, a pickpocket's training bell dangling from a strip of torn titanese, a shadesatin climbing pack with hammered sungold hardware, a dashing spidersilk locksmith's tunic belted with a thick sash, a heavy cambrinth manacle, a silver key with a spider-web design on the grip, a silver-hued lockpick ring dangling a small witch ball, a pair of low-slung leather wrangler's breeches and some dark leather boots with flat soles.
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 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 apprentices just starting out in the guild. She also became a sister in the Locksmith Union.
