Full Name: Kerala Windchaser

Date of Birth: Year 10
Age: 23 at death

Race: Tauren
Gender: Female

Hair: Varying shades of brown. Curly!
Skin: Brown curly fur in various shades, grown all which way but neatly. Heavy scarring mostly concealed in there. Much of the left side of her body had regrown smoother and in a slightly darker coloring following severe burning.
Eyes: Dark green shot through with lighter green flecks.
Height: 8", stunted
Weight: 417lbs, anorexic thin!

Place of residence: Missing person

Place of Birth: Some grass somewhere
Known Relatives: Fraternal twin sister Amietia Greydawn, mother Wadulisi, father Oyohus.

Religion/Philosophy: Nature's law. Followed her own black/white moral code.
Occupation: Druid healer
Group/Guild affiliation: <Mist of Dawn>. Former chieftain <Horns of the Shuhalo>, Disowned by <The Grim>

Enemies: Many people misunderstood her
Weapons of Choice: Teeth and claws. Stone-tipped spear. Favored crushing a skull beneath a hoof as a death blow, which is common centaur practice. Fought viciously, especially when angry. Good against multiple enemies especially animals in packs.
+Weaknesses: Had trouble with verbal communication, especially words with multiple meanings or finding the proper words to express herself. This often resulted in problems. She never lied. She could not eat meat. Was initially claustrophobic- this was mostly cured.

Likes: There was no better thing to Kerala than flying with her own wings. She also liked rain. Her mate Lupinum. Pretty gems and flowers. Green places. Wind.
Favorite Foods: Apples. Mushrooms. 
Favorite Drinks: Fresh spring water.
Favorite Colors: Blue. Green
Dislikes: Words with multiple meanings. Subtlety. Dishonesty. 
Hobbies: Shaped gems. Disappeared to be alone out in nature, or whatever she did when she went walkabout. Often went swimming.

Physical Features: Kerala was an extremely skinny tauren woman with a distinctly wild appearance. She was thin! She might have been the boniest tauren anyone will ever see.
Her brown fur coat wasn't smooth anywhere- there were countless swirls and haphazard growth patterns that made her always seem scruffy and unkempt. There were varying shades of brown even on individual hairs.
Her mane was a darker brown, and the hair grew just as wildly as her coat- thick curls and fluff sticking every which way. She never bothered much to tame it, only tied it into bunches. Her face was also framed in low curving horns of brown. They were thinner in diameter than usual, with very wicked-looking sharp tips.
Kerala had clear dark green eyes, calm and intelligent. Surrounded as they were in such disorder, her eyes might have been a startling feature and arguably her most beautiful. 
Her muzzle and hide bore a dizzying array of scars of varying lengths and shapes. The nature of her fur made most of those easy to miss at first glance. Tauren familiar with older traditions might have recognized the stripe-like burn scars on her snout as marks of dishonor, brands to warn others of the character of the person who wore them.
Kerala generally wore no decorations on her clothing. Her fingernails were often dirty and hooves chipped and neglected. 
Kerala's voice was coarse, with a slight Magram accent present in both Taurahe and Orcish languages. Her ears and eyes were in constant motion, watching and listening to her surroundings.
She was stunted in growth, coming in under average height at only 8 ft tall (average is 9ft). 
She weighed only 417lbs (she should have been around 533lbs).

Special Abilities: Spoke a version of crude Common used by Magrami centaur. Was a powerful intuitive healer.
Personality: 
Kerala was introverted. She tended towards silence and was perfectly content to be alone. She was awkward around others, aware of her tendency to say things the wrong way or misunderstand. She could be somewhat disagreeable. She would not compromise herself for the sake of others. Her trust was a very rare thing indeed. 
She was impulsive, and had a short temper, and which often led to violence. She was not a good leader. She had ambitious goals and could be very stubborn in holding on to them, but often had very little foresight beyond the current situation. She focused on one thing at a time without thought to what came after, and there wasn't really a plan in how to achieve the end result. That didn't stop her, of course.
She was straightforward in her thinking and she appreciated truth and bluntness. Subtlety and implied meanings might have been lost on her, but she picked up very well on non-verbal cues. She said what she thought without concern for how it was received. Her words were often misinterpreted, because she said things simply and without much explanation. 
Misc. Quirks: Would freeze in the presence of an unidentified danger. Could not eat meat. Almost never used a person's name. Was cured of claustrophobia, but still wore loose clothing, avoided large crowds and tended to note every exit from indoor spaces. Followed her own personal code of morality.

Theme Songs:

IN MY MIND (submitted by Shokkra  <3)
Pray for Rain Drops on rocks fall fast and fleeting / Hearts and wings commence to beating / Woods unseen with all believing / Drops on rocks come fast and fleeting / Rhythm laws unleash their meaning / Usher us into the dreaming
Raining Like Magic The forest is breathing / Ferns are rejoicing / And the trees are all singing / Hey - It's raining life
    
Spiral I feel rain pouring down / I wait to rot away / Live again / Here forever / The spiral never ends
Cloud Nine Guess it wasn't real all along / If I fall and all is lost / No light to lead the way / Remember that all alone is where I belong.
Where the Lonely Ones Roam Roam with me / Come down to where all of the others fell / Get lost in the dark to find yourself / Just remember what I said / No it isn't over yet
    
One Fine Wire I remember the time my balance was fine / And I was just walking on one fine wire / But It's frayed at both the ends / And I'm slow unraveling
Breathe Today So many lies swirling / All around you / You're suffocating / The empty shape in you / Steals your breath / You're suffocating / Logic forces me to believe in this / And I have learned to see / And I can only say what I've seen and heard / And only you can choose / And every choice you make will affect you / Suit your own self. / You can breathe today
Re-Align No way to go / Internal instincts craving isolation / For me to grow
    
Butterfly's Dream Whispering from the sky / the raindrops fall tonight / Even this gentle cry / stirs not the butterfly's dreaming / Streaming skies are breathing / breathing into me / All the magic this night brings
    
No One's Here to Sleep What goes on behind these doors / I'll keep mine and you keep yours / We all have our secrets, we all have our secrets / Behind every door is a fall, a fall / And no one's here to sleep
Hopes and Dreams
    
Teardrop Water is my eye / Most faithful mirror / Fearless on my breath / Teardrop on the fire / Of a confession
Threadbare Oh in all this time / I never wanted to destroy a dream come true / And in all this time / I never wanted to destroy someone like you / I want you to stay / So give me a sign - give me your hand - I'll take you home
Something Wild If you face the fear that keeps you frozen / Chase the sky into the ocean / That's when something wild calls you home, home
You Should Know Where I'm Coming From What if I said I was just too young? / What if I said I was built on bricks of carelessness and crumbs / What if I said I'd be gone before I could come

Voodoo You change your silhouette / You cast another shadow... / No doctor's got me diagnosed / No science proof to save me... / I love the color red / It is for love, it is for death
Raptor
Lights Out Now you want to take me down / As if I even care / I am the monster in your head / And I thought you'd learn by now / It seems you haven't yet / I am the venom in your skin / And now your life / Is broken / After the lights go out on you / After your worthless life is through / I will remember how you scream
Invisible Sun Invisible sun, a star lit in the dark / Invisible sun, a shadow upon the stars / Invisible sun, shining where there's no path / Invisible sun, rubbing out question marks
Twist Set me free from the prison of the past / Don't trap me in your story / You will fall from the shaky ground you stand.../ You twist, dismiss, my memory.../ Breaking all the borders / I don't think this is as far as we can get.../ Hope seems so distant.../ Tick tick / Breaking we're all, breaking we're all / Get get get control.../  You twist, dismiss, my memory

Behind Closed Doors Behind closed doors, there's never any light.../ Mix a little bit of our denial / Mix a little bit of black and white / I feel you, I need you.../ Behind closed doors, there's a lifetime to forget
We Walk In The Dream Now we walk in the dream / but dream no more
End of the Dream I found a bird Closing her eyes One last time / And I wonder if she dreamed like me / As much as it hurts, Ain’t it wonderful to feel? .../ I will find a way Even without wings / Follow your heart 'Til it bleeds / As we run towards the end of the dream
Brendan's Death Song

History: When she was 11, Kerala and her father, as well as several other tauren from their group were captured by Magram centaur. Kerala's father was killed during an attempt at escape. Kerala was desperate enough to stand over his body and challenge the centaur instead of continuing the likely-futile attempt to flee. Magram value strength above all. Kerala was kept their captive instead of eaten. She fought for their entertainment for years. It was during these dangerous fights that Kerala learned to shift to animal form through intense fury. Eventually, malnourishment and improper care led to a string losses, which is when was condemned to the tunnels to mine gems. Nearly dead of starvation and infection, she was rescued by the Cenarion Circle botanist Kethrenorean Forestwhisper during the Cataclysm earthquakes. For years he continued to send her medicine to help her recover physically.
Kerala struggled to take up the banner of the <Horns of Shuhalo> that she'd learned of during her captivity. She was too wayward to properly lead. It was during one of her walkabout absences that two of her Horns came into conflict and both ended up leaving. Konro Stormreaver joined <The Grim>. His conflicts escalated at the same time that the ancient Accalia awakened during an Eclipse. Breygrah, in order to stop him, challenged and killed Konro in a duel to the death, Mak'gora style.
<The Grim> were obviously upset at losing their supplicant, and several members, most notably Syreena, made it their mission to harrass Breygrah. Kerala invoked an ancient tradition of Blood Law to assume Breygrah's life debt onto herself. The Grim's leader Awatu accepted the offer, and demanded a replacement supplicant. Kerala presented him with herself. She underwent the traditional inquisition required, despite severe prejudice against her and numerous difficulties. She and an undead named Lupinum came to blows. In the end, she did complete the trials and became an official Grim for a few minutes. She angered Awatu and he expelled her by throwing her into a sorcerously-hot fire.
As luck would have it, part of becoming Grim was to leave one's old life behind. The fire to destroy all of her belongings did not consume a seed that Keth had mailed to her- that she had swallowed rather than see burnt. The seed reacted to the dying druid's magic by growing around her. It saved her life, in a fashion. Kerala would have remained a tree forever, then if her friend Lupinum had not searched for her. He convinced her there was a reason for living. They grew to love each other and became lifemates.

Alignment: CHAOTIC NEUTRAL
Chaotic Neutral- A chaotic neutral character follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect others' freedom. He avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. A chaotic neutral character does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others) or evil (and a desire to make those different from himself suffer). A chaotic neutral character may be unpredictable, but his behavior is not totally random. He is not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it. Chaotic neutral is the best alignment you can be because it represents true freedom from both society's restrictions and a do-gooder's zeal. However, chaotic neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it seeks to eliminate all authority, harmony, and order in society.

"Ah, Kerala..." the mistweaver ponders. "I respect her for her actions...but I worry immensely for the road she walks. It would be a waste for her talents to fall to petty butchery."

Syreena frowns when asked about Kerala. "I'm still not sure what to think of her. She has silly notions of honor that I can't understand. She offered herself to Awatu as a Supplicant because of some ancient Tauren honor thing, but she's planning to leave us again after only a couple months. She squashed my head once, but I don't really remember it very clearly."

After a pause, Syreena adds, "Also, she's so skinny! She looks like she never eats!"

"For a long time, I hated Kerala. A lot. I resented her because joining The Grim was so important to me, and for her it was a cross to bear. A debt to pay. She complained bitterly, if not in words then in actions. And the worst of it, in my mind, was how easily she made friends. The more she dug in her heels and showed her resentment, the more people flocked to her. At the same time, I was fighting tooth and nail for my place in the guild. And for the most part, I was disregarded at best, or discriminated against, most commonly.

So, I hated her, and I wanted her to fail. But eventually.. things began to change. It started with the night when she completed her first trial of eating all the Alliance hearts. I didn't think she would do it, or I thought she'd find a way to cheat or deceive us. But she didn't. Not only did she complete that task more thoroughly than I ever thought she would, but she owned it.

She gained my respect that night, and from there I started to like her. I saw a lot of myself in her, in ways that no one would ever understand even if I tried to explain. So I wont.

That last night when she was to complete her third and final trial, the others didn't understand her. They couldn't see what she was trying to say, because she wasn't finding the right words. She tore off Konro's tabard and burned it. The others thought she was insulting The Grim, but I knew her act was symbolic. Burning that tabard wasn't about The Grim- it was about her debt.

I was sad when Awatu threw her into the fire and drove her away. He banished her from the guild, but she still comes around. I see her, but I don't say anything. I'm glad she's still alive." -Shaelie

"Whatever strange paths we may walk in life, Kerala always seems to find her way across mine, to my great joy. I do not claim to understand the tauren, but she is my friend, and I believe that she has some great destiny in store. What, and how I might serve in guiding her towards it, I do not know. I am not an augur. But Kerala approaches her challenges with a wisdom and ferocity that few can match."

"Too skinny," Xara comments. "Every time I see her, I want ta feed her! But there are some people out there who don't want people takin' care of 'em... They think it makes 'em vulnerable, they're scared, they don't wanna get hurt." The trolless is quiet for a moment, then shrugs. "Some wild animals can't be tamed."

Breygrah does not try containing her smile when asked about Kerala.

"She is one you can rely on, when her word is given.  She can be gruff, and stern.  But we all need that from time to time.  I only wish I could have been reliable to her as she was to me."  She pauses a moment, and pats a hand on the tabard she wears.  "I do truly hope that I could have her support."  She does not explain what she means before smiling politely and going on her way.

Tahzani ponders the question before answering, " Ah'll be honest. Ah don' know Kerala as well as ah feel ah should. She be one a de few druids who speaks plainly. Sure she got de wisdom of someone who ain't consumed by de petty desires of our societies but she says it flat out and in words jah can undahstand. She ain't even preachy about it!" He lets out a short laugh, " Ah tink ah should probably learn a few tings from her. When she talks, jah should listen."

Kerala's Death Song 
(based on Red Hot Chili Peppers - Brendan's Death Song

Way up high I know She's watching me.  Why do you cry? 
Our Mother calls, and now I sing for you, before I fly.
Although our paths have parted you know I'll be nearby.

A mournful sound and now it's all around. Do you know why?
In whispered wind, in the grass and the rain, all spirits sigh.
So when you feel sad remember this song; It's my goodbye.

Now I sing: 
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve.
And when your heart feels scarred, you'll be alright you'll see.  
I'll live in memory
Now I sing: 
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve.
I know it might be hard for you to understand.
Remember and believe.

We both know someday we'll have to go;  We all must die.
And we both try to live our lives with pride. Dry your eyes
because I love you. And we both agreed. I never lie.

Now I sing: 
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve. 
And when your heart feels scarred , you'll be alright you'll see. 
I'll live in memory 

Let me live so when it's time to die, I will honor my tribe. 
Let me die so when it's time to leave, another sun will rise. 

Now I sing:
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve.
I know it might be hard for you to understand.
Remember and believe.

Now I sing:
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve.
Now I sing:
My spirit takes to wing; I don't want you to grieve.

 

Kerala and her twin sister Amietia (Lomani) made up this Death Song for themselves when they were just younglings. Since her skull injury and amnesia, Amietia has of course made up a new song. There may not be anyone living anymore who could sing this for Kerala.

Kerala has been missing since June 2016, however some people may have seen her a few months after that (during the Mists of Helheim adventure). 

This character is DECEASED, however this is NOT yet common knowledge.
