Sorenne Naxela

Shhra'in Anakh'hhla

You see Sorenne Naxela, a S'Kra Mur.
She has gold-flecked slitted amber eyes and an elegant snout, black scales, a kinked tail and a shapely figure.
She is a bit over average height for a S'Kra Mur.
A brilliant orb of rippling cerulean light hovers like a will-o-wisp, following her diligently.
She is in good shape.

She is holding a a worn leather-bound volume of "The Immortals" in her right hand.
She is wearing a silver and blue diamond por'nidrel, a silver kathla of ten exquisitely carved agate panels that depict events surrounding the life of Hav'roth, a misty white silk cape draped with a shimmering web of whisper-thin silver, a flowing robe of iridescent silver watersilk, some silvery sandals tied with thin spidersilk ribbons and a pale Starburst rose.


Sorenne was born into a life of wealth and stature on the 26th day of the 4th month of Shorka the Cobra in the year of the Amber Phoenix, 346 years after the victory of Lanival the Redeemer in the busy town of Crossing. Her mother, the only child of a wealthy trader, was a professor of linguistics at Asemath Academy, and expected her daughter to follow in her footsteps. She knows nothing of her father, who presumably died in an invasion just before she was born. Her mother would never speak of him.

From the moment she could speak, Sorenne was thrust into every aspect of academia, despite all her protests. She hated the life at the Academy.

On her 13th birthday, she was 'surprised' with the knowledge that she would be sent to a prominent University in the south. The thought of being stuck forever in a career she never wanted filled Sorenne with so much dread that she ran away from home in the spirit of teenage rebellion.

With meager funds and an appalling lack of provisions, she soon found herself stranded on the pier at Riverhaven. An old, battle-weary Paladin took pity on the scared and hungry girl, offering her food and shelter in his home near Therenborough.

They lived comfortably in his rustic cabin. He never asked her any questions about her past, and she never asked him about his. Over the years, he taught her to fight and protect herself. He was an avid reader, and, in time, she learnt to appreciate the value of books. Perhaps, most importantly, he taught her the principles by which he lived his life.

Two days after her 18th birthday, she returned to the cabin after a successful hunting trip to find her dear friend collapsed on the ground. His heart had grown weary of life and simply stopped beating. Her time in Therenborough was at an end. His death signalled the end of her self-imposed exile, and she knew she had to return home and make peace with her mother.

She returned home too late.

Crossing is a city prone to attacks from vile creatures. The night before Sorenne's return, her mother had been killed in an unexpected invasion.

Seeking solace in her grief and guilt at the local chapel, she felt the hands of Hav'roth, Peri'el and Ushnish upon her; comforting and guiding her. It was then that she found her calling: to serve the Gods.

To this day, she continues to cling to the teachings of her first mentor, incorporating his stern, unyielding principles to the teachings of her Gods...and the city she once hated with a passion became her one true home.


On issues that she feels strongly about, Sorenne has a tendency to speak her mind freely without care or concern about the tone of her words, and clings firmly to her beliefs. Though she enjoys a good debate, it sometimes disturbs her how often her intents are misunderstood. Of course, she places these occurrences as the product of the naivete and ignorance of the masses. :)

Her uncompromising attitude and prickly personality is a trait passed down from her mother, and honed by her years with her stern mentor. Among friends and loved ones, and in situations where she feels most comfortable in, she can be very affectionate and playful.

When her duties as a cleric call to her, she throws herself into her work unhesitatingly. People often fail to understand, however, that those duties do not necessarily involve the stereotypical perception of what is entailed in clerical duties.

A strong advocate of having many favors, Sorenne's ongoing campaign is to bring awareness to Elanthians of the importance to keep many favors. She can be extremely unforgiving towards those guilty of stupidity and willful ignorance. She believes that if the gods intend to give someone who failed them a second chance, they will provide it in their own means.

To those who don't know her well, she is often believed to be heartless and cruel.

You'll just have to get to know her yourself to decide what you think she's like. :P
