APPEARANCE

Age 73 | Height 5'6" | Weight 130 lbs. | Hair Black | Eyes Sandstone | Complexion Tanned


Appearing as a slight, young beauty of roughly 20 years, Hemetre is easily identified by the rapunzel-length hair that swirls chaotically around her head as if caught in a constant breeze or current. Her clothes, crafted from crocodile skin and adorned with sparrow feathers tell much of her origin and background. While it might be easy to dismiss her as a young woman, she is remarkably mature for her age and is strangely familiar with old-fashioned words and expressions. 

Her hair shifts from the fathomless black chaos of Nu-Us, to the brilliant sky-blue of Lake Malekir's life-giving waters and the radiant gold flecks of sunburst that followed the shattering of the Wyrmstone and birthed the world. It is apparent even after one day that Hemetre is possessed of extraordinary and divine gifts. However, the true value and importance of the Nyxborn can only be seen in the artifact that is never far out of her reach: a clay tablet covered in ever-changing draconic glyphs and runes. This is the core of her existence and the divine act that gave her life: a shattered fragment of the fabled Wyrmstone.

 

BACKGROUND

Astral Drifter

Source Spelljammer


  • Personality Traits: I use old-fashioned euphemisms and expressions. 
    I have read every book in my father’s massive library – twice!
  • Ideals: Greater GoodMy gifts and abilities are meant to be shared, not to be used for my own benefit.
  • Bonds: I have an ancient text holding terrible secrets that should never fall in the wrong hands.
  • Flaws: Most people run and scream when they see a demon. I stop and take notes on its anatomy.

Background Feature: 

Divine Contract. 

You gain the Magic Initiate feat and must choose cleric for the feat. You gain 2 cantrips and 1 1st-level spell from cleric spell list.

In the Astral Sea, you crossed paths with Amus, the Red Wave. The encounter was brief and nonviolent, yet it made a lasting impression on you. This deity saw fit to share one secret or obscure bit of cosmic lore with you. Work with your DM to determine the details of this knowledge and its impact on the campaign.


BACKSTORY

In the beginning, before creation, was the Nu-Us. The Nu-Us was dark and fathomless, filled with nothing but the possibility of everything, it flowed like water, as turbulent as the Dead Tides and as calm as the waters of Lake Malakir. But around the Nu-Us, were eight powerful and mighty Divinities of Eld: four men and four women; their names and domains lost to us, remembered only briefly in waking dream. These Divinities, with a mighty swing and a flash of light, split the Nu-Us to create sea and sky. And at the horizon where Nu and Us met, was an egg fashioned from sand and loam, the Wyrmstone. From this egg came the first of our Gods, Nuru of the Sun and Amus of the Tide. From these two gods was born the people of the world, and upon the Wyrmstone's remains did their people build the great city of Malekir. At least, this is the story told of the creation of the Amenmerian pantheon and the people of the Scorched Sands.

It is easy to ignore such stories as folklore or curiosities, but archaeologists have discovered artifacts from the Shetasut Dominion and the even evidence of the legendary Wyrmstone that destroyed the ancient Elves and created the Scorched Sands. One such artifact discovered by the archaeologist and wizard, Neman Skenyrd, was a fragment of a clay tablet covered with draconic runes and glyphs. This tablet was a simple curiosity, initially thought to be a fragment of the creation myths of the Malekiri. However, its text soon began changing. Skenyrd, who was transcribing this tablet, soon realized the clay tablet was still being written; and somehow, his name had appeared in its latest entry.

In less than a fortnight, the wizard could be seen talking and chatting comfortably with the mysterious clay tablet. His collegiate fellows in Sheke imagined Neman had simply gone crazy and had prepared an intervention. To their surprise however, they instead discovered a prepubescent girl with black hair was seen talking back to him in his offices. Her name was Hemetre, and she was Neman Skenyrd's daughter. This caused some stir, but the gossip never rose above stories of an eccentric professor and his precocious daughter digging up ancient relics in the Scorched Sands.

Hemetre grew intermittently for the next 10 years traveling back and forth with the professor between archaeological digs, Malekir, and University of Sheke. Skenyrd's now famous collection of Wyrmstone Tablets grew with each new expedition and success. This fame brought attention to this important moment of history, but it also brought unexpected dangers to archaeology as well. Perhaps they were Amenmerian zealots, jealous wizards, or one of the local communities that had developed a distaste for foreigners digging up their ancient graves. Regardless of who the attackers were, Neman Skenyrd and Hemetre were ambushed in the city of Tasu. Neman was grievously wounded and was hospitalized and offered sanctuary by the Holy Order of Amus. Hemetre, was safe and managed to escape with the wyrmstone tablets. 

Although Neman is unable to recall the specifics of the ambush, Hemetre has told him that divine intervention saved them. The wyrmstone tablets have a central role in events to come and she had been assigned the divine duty of escorting these tablets by the god, Amus. Unseen enemies lurk in every corner, but visions and instructions on the wyrmstone tablet have guided her to the Thalassocracy of Baromenes.

  • The title was changed to Hemetre, Nyxborn Water Genasi Circle of Stars Druid

I am going to note this myself as completed, Hemetre looks great and the Wyrmstone tablets are interesting given the properties of Wyrmstone. Great job here and we still have 2 weeks so if there is anything you want to change or flesh out more you have more than enough time!

For magic items, I am thinking of:

Sentinel Shield |  Uncommon | DMG

This is featured in her backstory as the wyrmstone tablet that Skenyrd discovered and that gave birth to her. It begins writing out events that are happening around the attuned person. It's not as powerful as an oracle in predicting the future, but is enough to give advantage on initiative and perception rolls.

Moon Sickle |  Uncommon | TCoE

This is featured in her backstory as a shard of the astral sea she obtained when she met Amus, the Red Tide. It appears like black iron with white specks in the day, but shines with soft moonlight at night. When it is used to cast a healing spell, the healing spell covers the recipient with seawater.

Healing Potion |  Common | DMG

Reflavored as a goodberry tonic. Made from coffee cherries.

Hey there!

Either of the Uncommon items is approved, really cool refluffing of the items! Let me know which one you pick, other than that very cool ideas!

Thank you. I think the Sentinel shield makes the most sense. I would like to keep my options open depending on what the final party looks like.
