Character Information

Summary

Goals

Take care of her partner and daughter, find a new purpose in life, occasionally putting down toxic shamans wouldn't hurt either

Background

Born in Southern Poland to a dwarf father and an elf mother, in a small Romani encampment along the border with Slovakia, Karina's father died soon after she was born. Her mother, who fulfilled a woods witch role in the area, raised her to follow in her footsteps, and with Karina awakening at around age 13, this seemed to come to fruition. Her mother died when she was 22, and she soon stepped up to provide both her company and the surrounding villages with magical services, ranging from healing to dealing with spirits and paracritters. She eventually married her wife at age 26, and had a child soon after, and was looking forward to a long and peaceful life.

It was not to be so, as 2 years later, a toxic shaman attacked a nearby toxic waste facility, and managed to flood the surrounding area in toxic sludge. Most of her extended family, friends, and neighbors died in the disaster, sending Karina into a rage, and she began trying to track down the toxic shaman. The chase led her across Europe, and eventually led to Seattle, where she finally cornered and killed him in Puyallup.

Standing over the shaman's corpse, she began to see her folly. She had dragged her partner and young daughter across continents for revenge, and now they were stuck in some foreign city. With little point in going home, and unwilling to get a corp job, Karina decided to go into shadowrunning for the time being, until she can figure out what to do.

Appearance

Body wise, Circe is fairly average when it comes to dwarves. She has a heavy face with thick brows, and a large nose and eyes. Her thick black hair runs past her shoulders and contains a few grey hairs, caused by something other than age. She has several deep claw scars from some paracritter on her cheek and lip.

Clothing

She wears loose fitting clothes, along with several scarves, and a big belt, covered in pouches for holding reagents, all under a decently worn armor jacket.

Astral Appearance

Similar to her meat body, but quite a bit more plant-like, with wooden skin, and vines and flowers seeming to flourish from different parts of her.

Mentor's Mask

Her skin takes on a more wood-like appearance, her hair starts to resemble vines or other plant growth, and a general warm glow emanates from her.

Exactly the same as her meat body, she doesn't understand how to change it.
