The discipline of the Archer is not one for the flighty or the indirect. Therefore, it is reasonable that few Namegivers of the T'skrang race follow that path. There are, of course, exceptions, and some of those might well be notable.
The gaming uni verse is that of FASA's Earthdawn. The campaign is more or less run (well, senior GMed) by my boyfriend, Kevin, who actually has a lot of neat stuff up on a page which makes it much easier to loo k at and explain, and means I don't have to do it.
K'harra Shustal is a name that holds a great deal of meaning, in a world that places great priority upon names. It means:
This is a lot to put into a few words.
T'skrang are known for their flamboyant natures, and K'harra, while quieter, also follows this tradition. Here is a full description of her, when she's trying to be mildly impressive:
Her skin is a deep green, touched with an overtone of a rich, aquatic blue. S he has a few swirls of tattooing in russet brown that outline her bright, aware golden eyes, curling over her double crest, and down into the open collar of her shirt, evidently patterning down over her chest as well as her back.
This shirt is vividly electric blue, and made of silk, with slightly puffed sleeves that are tucked neatly into black leather bracers. Her cloak is also lined in silk, this silk a brilliant burgandy red, though it is a deep grey on the other side. Its clasp is marked with a brooch that is in the shape of a bird in flight, wings outspread. Her trousers are a sort of eggshell white colour, with a small amount of embroidery done along the sides in red and gold threads.
The horse she is riding is a glossy black, and well-c ared for, with a white blaze that sparks down his muzzle. He is slightly larger than the average beast, though of the same quality. He is also somewhat animated, and quick in his movements. From his bridle hangs a single white feather that glistens in the light, and has a chill aura about it.
A similar feather is bound to the rim of her quiver, which is full of arrows and slung by the saddlebags of her mount. On the opposite side is a lute of good quality, with a few runes carefully carved along its edge. Her bow is slung across her back, and it has a third of the white feathers laid along it near the runes that are carved into one end. A quick eye might notice the pair of daggers thrust into her bracers, their hilts hidden in the folds of the s ilk. It does not require such a quick eye, however, to spot the sheathed sword at her side, with its patterning in different colours of leather.
Another horse trails along behind them, a russet mare, who seems to be serving as something of a pack beast. At the very least, she is bearing a coil of rope and a few bags, as well as an iron pot slung as a counterweight to the coil.
I may put in more description and blither later, but most of the information about K'harra is acessable through Kevin' s site.
