The Greenbelt Company
Seoni, Grand Diplomat
Grand Diplomat and gypsy sorceress
A member of the wanderers known as Varisians, Seoni wears the magical markings of her culture in the elaborate tattoos that crisscross her body. She was a caravan master’s daughter who spent much of her youth travelling. one night, while her family camped at the edge of the mysterious Lurkwood, young Seoni wandered out of sight of her people’s cooking fires. There she found a great white tree, its ancient roots twisted around a ring of rune-carved stone. As she investigated, the tree’s bark fell away, revealing elaborate symbols and images that related a brief tale-that of her own short life. Seoni fled, but returned with her kin soon after to find nothing more than a normal old tree and a strange rock.
Seoni’s runic tattoos play a large role in her identity. Coming from a people where tattoo magic maintains a strong following, hers are both a manifestation of her power and a tool to aid in her castings. The sheer number adoring her skin, as well as the similar patterns woven into her clothes, are a mark of status among her tribe.
Despite being a consummate adventurer, Seoni is an enigma to her compatriots. Quietly neutral on most matters, bound by codes and mandates that she rarely feels compelled to explain, the sorceress keeps her emotions tightly bottled. Extremely detail oriented, Seoni is a careful and meticulous planner who frequently becomes frustrated by the improvised plans of her more impulsive companions.
