Full name: Rhia Alior Din Twinwaves
Age: 56
Clan: Rossaine
Nationality: Atha'an Miere


Role: Windfinder


Physical appearance:

Rhia is a woman of short stature. Her height is so that she has to look up to
meet almost anyone in the eye, something that irks her nerves to no end,
especially when it is a Mainlander that she is forced to bend neck to. Her
silky hair is nearly white in color, with the slightest hint of bond to it,
piercing gray eyes framed by a too-youthful face, give her an appearance of
black porcelain beauty. In truth she would be called pretty, but the way she
carries herself and speaks, makes her seem an exotic beauty. Her body is
that of a swimmer, as is the case with most of her people.


Physical weakness:
+Short
+Sea Sickness: If away from Sea to long she will grow dark and brooding
+Vanity




Physical strength:

+Speed
+Can hoist a sail, steer a ship, or wield a hammer



Personality:


Rhia is a quiet woman. She speaks only when necessary unless she is
comfortable with the other persons company. Even in private with friends she
is quiet, her easy laugh and laid back manner make it easy to forget the
dangerous woman that she can be. Dislike of Aes Sedai is ingrained in her
bones, and in all her years on the ships, never has she allowed the Gift of
Passage to one. Many have asked, but to all she has refused. Rhia knows that
if the Aes Sedai learn the secret of the Windfinders they will stop at
nothing to whisk them all away to the White Tower. The thought of not being
at Sea is often enough to make Rhia feel sick to her stomach. Rhia has a
slow temper, but a deadly one once she has decided she can no longer hold
her back her frustrations. For one who speaks so little, she has a bark that
makes you fearful to even ask of the bite.

Personality weakness:

- Fear / distrust of Aes Sedai
- Contempt of Mainlanders
- Takes criticisms to seriously


Personality strength:

- Level Headed
- Slow to anger
- Determined


Special: under advisement


OP Score: TBA (needs reverting from old to new system)


History:

Rhia Alior Din Twinwaves, Blessed by the Light, was born in a small rowboat
off of the Islands of the Atha'an Miere. Her mother had been on land when
the labor pains took her, and as quickly as her nine month growth of child
would allow her, she ran, waddled, to the docks where she rowed out alone in
a small two man row boat onto the calm sea where she gave birth to her first
daughter. Rhia she named her, a name strong with the Sea, the name of a fish
known to hunt in the shallows of low tide, found only in the warm coastal
waters surrounding the only home her Mother knew aside from the deck of her
ship.

Born to the Sea, it was an omen of the life that this child would one day
lead. Rhia was taken aboard her mother's ship as soon as she was old enough
to not have to be looked after every time someone turned there head. The Sea
became her first love, even the love of Mother and Daughter could not match
the deep connection and peace that Rhia found only on the rocking decks of
the ships that she called home as they sailed through the currents of the
endless Sea.

It was on her mother's ship that Rhia worked as the lowliest of deckhands,
scrubbing the boat's deck, making sure he was clean and in good repair.For
years she worked as a deckhand, raising slowly from the newest of the
deckhands to a slightly seasoned sailor.

Although, as life seems so fond of doing, all the work Rhia did to gain
scraps of respect and a third earring in her right ear was pushed to the
background as in her fourteenth year when she was made an Apprentice
Windfinder.

Two earrings were somewhat of a disappointment, but Rhia knew this was a new
life that she was to embark on. Windfinders were prominent people among the
ships, ranking in the top three of a ships commanding team. She would one
day have her own ship to help find the flows and currents in the Sea to
ensure that there ship made it where it needed to be.

With the training she was receiving as a Windfinder, Rhia was granted two
more piercings in her left ear, marking her as a pupil to a Windfinder. The
two right earrings would be given to her on the completion of her Windfinder
training. It would be many years before this occurred.

Years passed with Rhia under the tutelage of a Windfinder on a raker. Her
control over the One Power eventually became mastered, and with that mastery
and the knowledge of a ship that could rival a senior sailor, the last two
earrings were granted to her as she was told her time as an Apprentice was
over.

Rhia had never felt more accomplished or proud of herself as she did on that
day. The day she was given her own ship to be Windfinder of. The ship was
the smallest there was among the Sea Folk, but to Rhia, he was perfect.
Seven years of service on his decks ended as she was promoted to a ship just
short of being big enough to be called raker. On his decks she served for 8
years where she was granted a nose ring in her sixth year, and a slim golden
chain to connect her ears to her nose upon her completion in the ship's
service.

Many years have passed since Rhia first stepped onto a ship, so many that
she no longer can recall ever not being anything but absolutely at home on
the Sea and on a ship. She has now been appointed to Windfinder to four
different Sailsmistress' of Clan Rossaine. The medallions on her slim nose
chain name her Clan, Windfinder, and the Ship she serves. The only necklace
to adorn her neck is a thin golden chain with a small gilded golden box with
Sea salts locked inside, used to give the smells of the Sea when one was
force to stay on the land for a time.
