Well, I finally got off my butt long enough to write a new bio for my main RP charrie, Mara. Took me awhile to write the history. <_<


Full name: Maralyn Imladiel

Nickname(s): Mara, Mar, Maz

Gender: Female

Race: Elf

Age: Mara's age remains to be a secret she prefers to keep to herself; looks to be in her thirties or so.

Description: Tall & pale with a wise, yet fierce complexion; long black hair & soft brown eyes.

Birthplace: Imladris (Rivendell)

Father: Elmagon (deceased)

Paternal grandparents: Elthoron and Morlothel (both departed to White Shores)

Mother: Laifenwen (deceased)

Maternal grandparents: Celion and Linnodwen (deceased)

Sibling(s): A younger brother, Taranu

Status: Engaged to be married

Children: none

Weapon(s): Maralyn is extremely deadly with her sword, Gwanu, and takes care to always have it strapped by her side. She can also use a bow fairly well, but would much rather fight at a close range.

Animal(s): In her younger days, when she was still a wanderer, Mara came upon a young filly, black as midnight, trapped in a pit. After rescuing the filly from her position, the two became good friends, and travelled everywhere with each other. Mara named her new companion Mor Nar, which means “black fire” in Sindarin.
Seven years later, Mor Nar gave birth to a black colt. The colt seemed healthy, but it was soon found that he was blind in one eye. Mara named him Henon, which means “eye”.
Mor Nar had been often seen with a Unicorn stallion named Enrin, belonging to Mara’s friend Vanamir, earlier, so everyone has a pretty good guess as to who Henon’s father is.

Occupation: Wanderer/Warrior

History: Mara was born in Rivendell on a warm Summer day, sometime during the Third Age. Her father, Elmagon, was a soldier in the Imladris fighting patrol, and had to be away during the birth. Upon his return, he was overjoyed on finding his wife and his new daughter both fit and healthy. Maralyn’s naming ceremony was held three days after Elmagon’s return, and a feast was held in honor of this new addition to the community of Rivendell. Her mother, Laifenwen, sang a song, asking the Valar to bless her child and to give her grace, beauty, and wisdom. It was said that Laifenwen’s song was so beautiful, it brought tears to the eyes of all listeners.
Mara grew up with a love for books, and was as soon as she could walk she was constantly found at her grandfather’s house, browsing among the many books kept in his library. The young Elfing especially enjoyed reading books depicting famous battles, and would afterwards take up a stick and thrust and stab at the air with it, pretending to be a soldier with her sword.
One day when Mara was seven years of age, a young soldier arrived at the house, half dead from exhaustion. After pressing him for information, he tearfully told Mara and her mother that while patrolling the Misty Mountains, his troop, led by Elmagon, had been attacked by a band of goblins, and he had only managed to escape with his life. Elmagon had died, surrounded by the bodies of the enemies he had brought down with him.
Laifenwen, who was pregnant at the time, fell into a deep mourning, refusing to eat or sleep. Munraniel, Mara’s silver-headed nurse, tried to persuade Laifenwen to eat, but it was no use. Then, on the fourth day after receiving the news of her husband’s death, Laifenwen gave birth to a baby boy; Mara’s brother, Taranu.
Despite the joy at the child’s arrival, both Mara and Munraniel sensed something was wrong with Laifenwen. Each day she grew weaker, and the eyes which had once sparkled like stars were dull; the cheery lips which had once sung so beautifully had lost their color. Slowly, but surely, Laifenwen was fading away.
She died exactly a week after the birth of her son, Taranu, and was buried soon after. Her funeral was a sad affair, and tears flowed freely amongst all who were there. Celion, the grandfather of Maralyn and Taranu, volunteered to take the children in to live with him, as they had no other relations available to provide for them. He took them in and raised them to adulthood, providing such kindness and guidance as a father could provide.
When Mara reached her twentieth birthday, she decided she had had enough of living in Rivendell, and resolved to leave her birthplace and seek out adventure. Celion tried to dissuade her, but the young Elf maid’s mind was set, and once she made up her mind, there was no turning back.
She left Imladris, despite her grandfather’s warnings and general disapproval, and set out in a Northerly course, trusting her heart to lead her. She has travelled to a wide range of places since, and has met many new friends and has had many adventures with them. One day, she met a Wizard named Mindtraveller, whom she soon knew simply as Trav. The two became good friends and began to fall in love. It was a cold Winter's day when Trav asked Maralyn to become his wife, and she happily accepted, despite the wish of Mara's grandfather that she marry an Elf from a respectable family. The two of them are currently still engaged, and await the day when they can become husband and wife.
