Campaign of the Month: July 2014
Winter is Coming
Name: Khaavren Synen
Height: 4’9, petite but curvaceous figure. Honey-blonde, pale skin, lilac eyes.
Passionate about cooking. Braavosi sword training (dual wield), rigorous flexibility training since a very young age. (Modern day contortion.) Passable with daggers, used as a last resort.
Spying, manipulative. Loyal to her word. Temper-mental when riled.
*Emotionally immature. Becomes unstable, or reckless when extreme emotions are brought to the surface. A result of suppressing her feelings throughout her life.
*Mother (Essosi) was a supporter of the Targaryens, unknown to Khaavren. Her training, starting since she could walk, was meant to make her the perfect weapon in a category of areas. Training considered incomplete, as her mother prematurely died. She continued training in the areas already introduced to her.
“Swift as a deer. Quiet as a shadow. Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Quick as a snake. Calm as still water. Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Strong as a bear. Fierce as a wolverine. Fear cuts deeper than swords.
The man who fears losing has already lost. Fear cuts deeper than swords."
“Once committed to fight, cut. Everything else is secondary. Cut. That is your duty, your purpose, your hunger. There is no rule more important, no commitment that overrides that one. Cut. Cut from the void, not from bewilderment. Cut the enemy as quickly and directly as possible. Cut decisively, resolutely. Cut into the enemy’s strength. Flow through the gaps in his guard. Cut him. Cut him down utterly. Don’t allow him a breath. Crush him. Cut him without mercy to the depths of his spirit."
