As a genasi, Ilshara looks like a human female, but with slightly yellow-tinted skin, as if jaundiced but still with the healthy glow of a fully-functioning liver. She is tall and very thin, due to her focus on the development of her mental and elemental skills rather than physical. Ilshara has green eyes, brown, practically styled hair, and a wide collection of herbs and poisons (usually – lost most of it in Limbo).
Ilshara was always very confident in her abilities – well-trained and with a sharp mind, she could solve any problem put to her, especially if it involved potions or poisons. However, she is rarely confident in the abilities of others, and prefers to keep her ideas to herself and leave others to their own devices. Shattered after the Archanoclysm, and by the knowledge of her role in it, Ilshara retains her quiet, self-supported demeanor, but lacks confidence in her own ideas as well.
Ilshara’s human family were of the upper class in Artoria, living in the family castle within the city walls. With the death of her parents during the Archanoclysm, and Ilshara’s disappearance four years earlier, the Nygina castle was converted into a university.
Genasi are traditionally a scattered people, as the first generation genasi are born to and raised by human parents, only accepting their true heritage as adults (unless they are of a later generation). Before the Archanoclysm, a small group of first-generation genasi were united in seeking to unearth the secrets of the world through magic drawn from the Elemental Chaos of which they were born. Ilshara joined them four years previously, working as a potionsmaster to provide for the spells designed by the spell writers.
One day, her people’s spellwork went horribly wrong. All of her people died both from the spells and the Archanoclysm, but Ilshara escaped, locked away in some place she knew not. Ilshara emerged one year ago on the shard Artoria. With her small understanding of the connections between planes, Ilshara believed her people’s spells in the Elemental Chaos had caused the Archanoclysm in the material plane. Fearing this, Ilshara joined a scholar in Artoria to study the Archanoclysm, and do all in her power to make it right, if she could.
Ilshara is now on a quest to seek out the Elemental Chaos once again, if she can, and use reverse the effects of the failed spellwork to restore Vorenthal to its pre-Archanoclysm state – or to find another way to remedy the situation.
