Arianne is a 19 year old human girl, to the best of her knowledge, with jet black hair, completely gray eyes and a very strong desire to stay out of the spotlight and out of other people’s business.

She is of very small frame, coming in at only 1.65m in height and just shy of a healthy weight. Her manner is very awkward, which along with her completely gray eyes tends to make people slightly uncomfortable around her. Not one for etiquette, she says whatever she knows how to say and tries to shut up otherwise.

She moves very intently and carefully, as if every step she took were a complicated process, most likely a result of her experiences in the Chasm, where eons-old tunnels and crumbling stones can come apart at any moment.

She dresses quite oddly whenever she’s out “on business”, even according to her fellow professionals. She likes to wear a suit of soft, sturdy cloth that she wraps around her entire body. It may look ridiculous, but nobody has been able to tell how many pockets the whole thing has, and even her staunchest critics have admitted it’s a very effective way of concealing things or carrying them safely. Over this “wrapsuit” as she likes to call it, she usually wears light, non-restrictive clothing and a big, very dark, hooded cloak.

Her weapon of choice is a custom-design dart thrower that she found during one of her expeditions and decided to keep and fix up. It doesn’t pack much of a punch, but it’s usually enough to discourage anyone long enough for her to slip away.
