You see Cartography Doyen Kythryn Silverspruce, Panacea of the House of the Gilded Longleaf, an Elothean Empath.
Kythryn has an array of miniscule crystal-cut lotus blossoms following the natural curves of tilted almond-shaped stormy grey eyes. Her silver hair is very long and wavy, and is worn in a deceptively careless-looking arrangement of upswept locks held in place by an intricate animite haircomb set with small dragonfire amber accents. She has a cascade of dragonfire amber lotus petals accenting warm caramel-hued skin contoured with traces of dragonfire amber dust and an array of sungold sunbursts following the lines of a svelte figure.
She is a bit over average height for an Elothean.
Some amber gatekeeper butterflies float lazily around her right forearm, glowing with a lustrous sheen against her skin.
She appears to be middle-aged.
Her left earlobe is pierced with a sunburst lotus earring fashioned from a Taisidon sunset garnet. A twisted vine bearing tiny green amber leaves radiates upwards from the delicate flower, twining around the helix of her ear before piercing her tragus with a small orichalcum stud.
She has a tattoo of a tiny black cat, its sleepy eyes peeking out from the soft coppery skin on her abdomen.
Currently Worn Items
|a clockwork Taisidon jungle kitten with orichalcum gears|| An intricate group of delicate orichalcum wheels and niniam wires creates the framework of this diminutive representation of the vicious island predator. Lava topaz eyes glint like flames in the triangular feline face while a plush coat of fur has been emulated with a covering of pitch black arzumodine over the frame. A testament to the skill of the maker, the head, tail and legs of kitten move noiselessly, although a very soft hiss can just be heard when the tiny retractable claws extend.
A clockwork jungle kitten reads:
"Crafted by the Merchant Turialo in the year of the Bronze Wyvern, 414 A.V."
|Altered sad-eyed spun glitter kitten with a belled collar. In 2015, added EZAtmo events to it.|
|an intricate orichalcum torque finished with a multi-hued amber bijou|| Strand upon strand of the luminous red orichalcum creates a complex design of knotwork that flows delicately around the wearer's neck. Formed in an asymmetrical design, one end stops just above the wearer's collarbone and is finished with a richly-hued amber cabochon. The other end flows further down and ends in an exquisitely wrought jewel designed to sit lightly above the sternum. Splayed with raw amber beads in gold, greens and black, the delicate jewel holds its own wild, distracting beauty.
An intricate orichalcum torque reads:
"Redesigned by Merchant Turialo Shala'mer for Kythryn Silverspruce in the year of the Golden Panther, 408 years after the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer."

|an elegant pocket-chain of niello-accented orichalcum links||Long rectangular links of lustrous red-gold orichalcum are accented down the center of each with thin lines of smoky black niello. Smaller oval loops of dark animite connect the more intricate links together, contrasting beautifully with the red metal.||altered Decorative orichalcum pocket-chain suspending a rune-carved fob|
|a sculpted silver earcuff cradling a drake's heart amber||Designed to delicately trail the outside of the wearer's ear, the fine silver curls and flows around each curve gracefully. Near the bottom edge, the cuff ends in a small spiral that supports a cleverly designed gem setting. Set into the earcuff is a drake's heart amber.||altered gem-setting item|
|a delicate locket of polished horn adorned with red-gold petaled tiger lilies in full bloom||The delicate locket has been painstakingly recreated from an original gift from the Wind Elves when they opened Zaldi Taipa to visitors. Copying the masterful work of the Elves, the richly polished horn is carefully inlaid with fine red gold, each petal of the lilies engraved to detail the fine veins and folds, while darker green gold has been used to give accent to the stems and leaves.||Altered replica of the Greeter gift from when Zaldi Taipa opened; has hider ability for lumpy bundles, weapons and backpacks.|
|an intricate animite haircomb set with small dragonfire amber accents||The sleek silvery-black animite is masterfully cast and finished in a distinctive pattern reminiscent of the elaborate knot designs used by several of the Elothean Houses. Strategically placed channels of rich dragonfire amber inset along the flowing curves of the hairpiece are made to catch light as the wearer moves. Dark red inclusions in the rich amber contrast dramatically with the formal design of the metal, giving it an artistic look.||altered|
|a Taisidon sunset garnet earring styled to look like a sunburst lotus|| The delicate bloom is made of subtly curved gems that are cut to enhance the deep orange hue reminiscent of a tropical sunset. Attached to a twining orichalcum vine, the earpiece is designed to pierce the wearer's ear in two locations. Tiny serrated leaves of multi-hued green amber attached to the slender wires enable the vine to be stabilized around the helix of the ear when worn. A small orichalcum stud engraved with a simple shesegri symbol is positioned opposite the resplendent sunburst lotus.
A sunset garnet earring reads:
"Redesigned by Tildi Koski in the year 416."
|altered feature-worn jewelry|
|a snug Elothean silk bandeau wrapped around the chest||Subtle variations in the coloring of the soft fabric shift like deep night shadows when light plays across the finely brushed surface. Small black opals have been beaded randomly throughout the luxurious silk, the vibrant colors deep within flaring with brilliance like a warm fire before fading back into the cloth when touched by light.||Altered Length of fabric; is a length of Elothean silk fabric when held|
|a dual-banded oath ring connected by a smooth dragonfire amber|| Converging opposite the central setting, twin bands of polished red-gold orichalcum gradually separate to clutch the gem securely on both sides. The amber's rich, deep golden hue is beautifully complemented by the chaotic scarlet inclusions throughout the stone, and the combination of colors from it and orichalcum mimics the shades of a magnificent autumn sunset. Elegant calligraphy engraved into the bands scrolls gracefully in a repeating, flowing pattern. The inside of the ring has been marred by some disfiguring scratches.
A dual-banded oath ring reads:
" Unending devotion is my oath to you."
|Gift from Anuind|
|a dragonfire amber and cambrinth armband inlaid with the symbol of the Shard Healers' Hall|| Wide spirals of dark cambrinth are fashioned to overlap gracefully around the wearers' upper arm.

|a foraging basket woven from osage and ebonwood strips||Masterfully crafted from thin strips of wood, the distinctive rich tones of brown and ebony create an attractive pattern when woven together.
