Physical Description
Perhaps Illiana's most noticeable features are her mass of curly, dark hair and her bright gold eyes. Her skin is a smooth, even brown without a hint of a dimple or freckle anywhere. She's tall and slender, with a bit of a willowy look to her frame, and features that are often described as "regal".

The half-elven girl is charming, cheerful, and curious. She almost always has questions for the people around her, some intriguing and some innocuous. Though not a constant smiler, it takes a great deal to truly make her angry.

Once her ire is woken though, enemies beware. She holds onto grudges like lifelines, and forgiveness is hard to earn. Trust you will never recover.

Illiana is an accomplished musician, able to play a variety of instruments, though her skill is greatest with her stylized lute and good ol' fashioned singing.

She's also skilled with daggers and throwing knives, if the occasion calls for it.

Her family, the Nightshade clan.

Her spirit companion, Nyrin:

In the last seven years or so Illiana has begun to go almost solely by her professional name- which is just her surname, "Nightshade". It's a name that belongs to a clan of elves living in the Draconi forest, her mother's people.

Her mother was the Moon Priestess of the Nightshade clan, a powerful druid and kind leader. The fact that she bore a child out of wedlock to an Essyrni merchant prince made no difference to her family, and Illiana was brought up constantly assured of how much the people around her loved her.

When she was sixteen, she went out searching for medicinal herbs for the healer and found a small entrance to a series of underground caverns. Curiosity piqued, she climbed down into the tunnels and started exploring.

It didn't take her long to find a pool of silvery water in a large cavern. And in the pool she found her reflection, but behind her stood a great beast: a massive, striped cat with wings and crowning antlers.

When she turned around, the creature was there, flesh and blood. He told her that his name was Nayrin, and explained that he was her spirit companion. Most members of the Nightshade clan had one, though not as many ever learned their true shapes, or could pull then forth onto the physical plane.

The clan took Nayrin's discovery as a sign; Illiana had a journey ahead of her, one that would guide the course of her life. After a few days of discussion with her mother and the Priestess of Stars, Illiana decided she would embark on a journey to find her human father.
