Alaia

Alaia

Graceful glaive who bears a halo of flame

A young woman and experienced swordsman who wields flames thanks to a strange, sentient artifact in her possession. The artifact itself is something of a conduit for an Ultraterrestrial which has recruited her as a servant of sorts. She looks a little unusual as well: her hair and eyes are both a bright, fiery red, and embers tend to drift from her hair to float around her, even when her abilities aren't in active use.

connections: Ugrunna is immune to her fire.

Alaia remains limited by the amount of Effort she can apply in one action. Anything that modifies attack or damage applies to both attacks.

Focus

  • Shroud of Flame (1 Int point): Alaia's entire body becomes shrouded in flames that last up to ten minutes. The fire doesn’t burn her, but inflicts 2 damage to anyone who tries to touch her or strike her with a melee attack. Flames from another source can still be harmful. She gains +2 Armor that protects only against flames from another source while the shroud is active.
  • Hurl Flame (2 Int points): While shroud of flame is active, Alaia can reach into the fire and hurl a ball of it at a target. This is a ranged attack with short range that does 4 fire damage.
