Spiritual Human Profile
I. Basic Information » Name:
Librea » Titles:
None » Age:
305 » Gender:
Female » Affiliation/Rank:
West High Tauern Village Refugees » Physical Appearance Description:
Librea stands at a considerable 6'3" in height and at first glance might not be considered a human at all. With a tall slim frame and elongated limbs with the ends of the digits all ending in pointed claw-like nails. She has dark brown skin and a fair complexion. Her features are also notably unusual with a small diminished nose and larger eyes than normal with a slight almond shape. Atop her head are two white-furred ears speckled with black at the tips along with a matching short tuft-like tail at the base of her spine.
In terms of general appearance, Librea has an incredibly poor sense of fashion, generally wearing just about anything that someone offers to her, giving her a clear lack of consistency in what she can be expected to be wearing at any given time, though in many cases she simply wears whatever scraps and cloaks she can fashion out of spare cloth or materials she comes across.
I. Personality Traits » Personality:
A quiet and curious woman, Librea puts much of her energy forth into exploring her surroundings and remaining alert. While she does struggle to communicate well with others, she still enthusiastically will generally interact with anyone that approaches her. Though it is exactly that: She will gladly interact with those that approach her, but if left to her own devices she is generally quite independent and at most will simply address others in relation to other things in her surroundings rather than directly socialize in most instances, at times making it difficult to hold her attention especially if she believes there might be something dangerous.
This focus on objects rather than people is a result of negative reactions over the years as a result of her inhuman features. As such, she has a tendency to hold a low profile and avoid directly interacting with humans, though this is a manifested force of habit rather than a conscious decision and in some cases she will go out of her way to interact with an individual she finds interesting and nonthreatening enough. » Likes:

I. Character History » History
Librea was born in a small village in the western zone of Austria near the Italian border in the forests of the Hohe Tauern. Originally a village of normal humans. However it in the late 2090s that the area came to be visited by an Iramasha named Rekaur, Iramasha of the Sleeping Forest. Almost immediately, the man came to grow incredibly fond of the forest and it's inhabitants as well as the coexisting nature of the villagers who thrived without having to encroach upon the surrounding forest. After a few years, the Head of the Village and the Iramasha themselves came to grow very close with one another as Rekaur recognized and came to adore how universally those within the village connected and cared for the forest itself. . It was then that Rekaur decided to name the villagers as guardians of the deeper sections of the forest.
Using his powers as an Irasmasha , Rekaur created a ward around their section of the forest to guide those who moved through the area away and around the forest and the village itself. And in doing so, changed the villagers so that they could tend to the forest. Gifting them with lifespans that far exceeded normal humans, and invoking a special sort of spiritual sensitivity which would allow them to interact with the souls of the forest and one another, allowing them to live all the more intimately connected with Nature.
For more than two hundred years, the Village embraced this task gifted to them. Seemingly protected from the horrors that went on beyond the wood and given the ability to live safely and peacefully with nature, the Village lived in quiet solitude. With their ability to interact with eachother by sensing eachother's souls, verbal communication became very limited in their everyday lives and their connection with nature only grew, to the point where they began to live in structures built into the very trees rather than clearing land to build them on the ground. As time passed, the boundary between the Forest itself and the Villagers began to erode and in some ways they almost considered themselves to be a very part of the forest itself rather than just those that tended to it.
Librea herself was of the more curious types among her village. Having been very young when they were given their gift, with their new longevity the process of growing slowed to an almost crawl and she retained her childlike curiosity for almost a century, though among the village she always remained one of the most curious, often venturing to the borders of the forest protected by the ward and eyeing that which lay beyond.
But such peace was never meant to last forever. Without warning, around 2320, the Ward which had kept their forest safe suddenly vanished. At first the village barely noticed it, but soon as hollows began to wanbder the area on occasion it became abundantly clear that something was wrong. Among her village, Librea was one of several who volunteered to protect the village from these outsiders, hollows and otherwise that would venture into their forest. Together with other Wardens she protected the sanctuary they had been entrusted with.
Thankfully with their connection to the forest, the Village of West Tauern Forest was able to defend itself, but questions as to why the Ward had faded began to arise and suspicions about what had happened began to grow among her people. Had Rekaur died? Or had something simply destroyed the ward itself? All the same, as the years rolled on, several in the village volunteered to go out and try to find the Iramasha in hopes of restoring the sanctuary their home once was. Every ten years or so, another brother or sister of the village would head off never to return. And as the years passed, intruders grew all the more frequent until finally they were driven from their home by a wildfire used by nearby humans with the intention of using the flames to rapidly clear the forest.
The result was devastating. Deprived of the Forest they had been a part of for such a long time, her people became refugees and nomads and wound up fleeing to Italy. It was here that the Village began to splinter. Some wanted to return to the burned down wastes left behind of their forest, intent on simply starting anew and tending to the new forest that would grow in the ashes of the old. Others wanted to go and hopefully search for Rekaur hoping that the Iramasha would be able to simply restore their home or find a new one for them. But for Librea, she and a number of others instead sought to become a part of this new world they had been isolated from for so long, with many of her group being those that had been born having never known the outside world.
Librea, and those with her, set their sights upon the world that had been ravaged by war and spirits, intent on no longer being isolated from the rest of the world they lived in. This occurred soon after the very end of World War Four and over the last four years her and the other refugees have slowly spread out and explored this new world, though they generally keep in touch.
I. Equipment » Equipment:Survival Gear:
Due to her penchant to camping out in the wilds rather than staying in civilized dwellings, Librea generally keeps equipment and tools needed for living out in the wild either nearby or on her person. Pouches of Seeds:
Librea generally keeps small pouches of seeds on her person. Mostly trees but with a mix of other plant seeds among them.
I. Natural Abilities & Skills » Skills: One with the Wilderness
A combination of both her experience and knowledge garnered from her ability to connect with Nature, Librea is an expert in surviving, navigating, and tracking in any natural environment, though with a specialty to Forested areas. Even outside of this specialty, her connection with nature and years of experience have garnered her an impressive understanding of a the natural environment and how to handle the wildlife that calls it home. IN any natural setting its safe to assume Librea either HAS the tools to perform any task she needs, or can easily attain or fashion them from the natural resources available. Natural Sentry:
Librea's ability to sense spirit energy and connect with the souls of both humans and nature give her a very keen ability to sense living things in her surroundings. This sense was especially tuned when intrusions to her old Forest began to increase over time and thus Librea specializes in sensing ill-intent in the souls of others be they sentient or not. Expert Acrobat:
As a result of living within homes built into trees most of her life, Librea is an exceptional athlete and is particularly acrobatic. When it comes to maneuvering vertically or through terrain that most would find impossible to cross: Librea excel at moving with such lack of effort that she can climb and vault at the very same speed with which she can move across flat ground without even breaking pace when transitioning from a sprint to a full vertical climb.
I. Other Supernatural Abilities » Powers: Nature Communion
A power granted to her and her village, and the root of all her proper abilities. This overarching power allows Librea to communicate with the souls of living things and execute her other abilities. In addition to allowing Librea to connect with Natural Surroundings and better sense the world around her, this power also allows the manipulation of Nature itself via this connection. While originally intended to allow her to communicate with the forest she lived in, this ability extends to all living things. Forestkin Form
Another gift to her and her village. Her unique rabbit-like body designed to integrate with the natural world around her resulting in incredible longevity and physical augmentation. IN addition to making her more physically impressive than most normal humans in terms of speed, strength, and reflexes: thanks to the ability to manipulate natural souls Librea is also able to physically manipulate her own body allowing for development of transforming herself in order to fit her needs. However, unlike MOST types of physical augmentation this ability also extends to allowing her to transform her body into structures normally found in plants in addition to normal flesh and bones (Example: Being able to turn her skin into bark or hardened wood. She is even able to photosynthesize through this ability.
This form is not just skin deep and for those attempting to sense Librea's soul through her spiritual pressure or other forms of soul-sensing will find that it feels incredibly reminiscent of a plant rather than a human. » Pure Abilities: Warden's Touch:
Using her ability to communicate with nature, Librea is able to manipulate and rapidly grow plantlife within her general surroundings. The range of this manipulative ability extends to a solid 10 meters and plantlife that is being manipulated by her generally has Adept speed and strength. Plantlife grown by this ability will generally grow by 5 meters per post.
Librea can use this ability for a maximum of 5 posts per thread, though this count regenerates by 1 for every 3 posts that transpire without using the ability up to the maximum of five. Warden's Veil:
Librea is capable of blending in almost perfectly with vegetation. By communing with the nearby vegetation, she can emulate the bark and leaves and have them grow along her body creating an imperfect camouflage. Though more impressively is the secondary effect of completely masking Librea's scent and spiritual pressure as if she were another plant in her surroundings. This ability can last up to 3 posts before a 2 post cooldown is initiated. This ability can be used for a total of 15 posts per thread. This ability is limited to the presence of plant life to utilize. Whisper of the Forest:
Librea's sensory ability. Allows Librea to sense the presence of a living soul within 200 meters, and the general intent of the soul within 10 meters with effort. This range is multiplied by 5 when within a Forest.
