Lady Azova Darkwater
Kindness and a generous spirit go a long way. And a sense of humor. It's like medicine - very healing.
Description: This woman stands at just under five and a half feet in height. Auburn hair ripples past her shoulders and frames her heart-shaped face that is accompanied by the natural pink of her lips. High-set cheekbones bloom with carnation pink in counterpoint to the pale cream of her skin, while vivid cerulean eyes contrast both. Her legs are long, arms slender, and petite hands are arrayed with long, slender fingers.
Personality: Azova is a sweet woman, rarely raising her voice in anger, kind to all. She's not a pushover though - she can be heard herself across the battlefield when she needs to. She constantly seeks to help others and does so in the kindest, sweetest way she can, though inevitably her vocabulary is littered with curse words. She has a penchant for blue language that might make a sailor blush, but it's all delivered in the most dulcet tones that it can be a little confusing to hear the sweet woman deliver kindness couched in such epithets.
Background: Like her siblings Azova was born on Cielos Encantadores and raised to understand the ways of a noble. However, unlike them, she was not fully raised there like they were. Sure, she spent a fair bit of time there but she was not happy like they were, she felt she could better reach people that needed her by becoming a Mercy. She knew it was her calling at a very young age and spent her time striving to become one.
It took some convincing but eventually she got her parents and her brother Baltus to agree that she needed to be in Arx to become a disciple and eventually a Mercy of Lagoma. She excelled at healing, though often her brusque manner caused people to question whether she was truly sincere about her work. She had a difficult time convincing them of her dedication, but eventually she did - even though she still has more than a few rough edges!
Azova opted to get directly involved in battlefield healing, so she has been to several different areas - battles large and small, and very seldom does he speak of it except to say that the price of war is paid in blood, and sometimes she wonders if it's worth the cost. But the battlefield is a difficult place, and emotions run high - during one of her missions she found herself falling for a man and with him she had a relationship. They were even talking marriage - right up until his family arranged him off to another woman, leaving her with a broken heart.
When Azova heard that her siblings were coming to Arx she started to focus staying closer to the city - to spend time with them, and to be close to the man she loves but cannot marry.
