This is my current Warden, Aspe Tabris.
She’s a city elf, and a dumb rebellious kid.
She’s very naive and really has no grasp of how power, society, and role work- she’s pretty sure all her problems will be solved if she can run off and join the Dalish. This was the reason for the tattoo- it has nothing whatsoever to do with traditional Dalish tattoos, but she has no real means of finding out what those would look like so she improvised a design and had a human artist do it. She wears makeup in the excess, and always in dramatic dark blues and purples.
Her hair is naturally a mousy brown, but it hasn’t actually been that color in years. Most of the time, she keeps it bleached to a pure white. More recently, though, she had died it a light blue, shortly before shearing it all off (oops my TP love is showing). Why did she shave her hair? Because fuck you, that’s why. There was no deep, emotional catharsis- she just felt like shaving her head. It’s convenient as hell.
She’s very tall, and very muscular. She takes full advantage of her impressively brawny build- though she’s never been in a real fight in her life, petty street scuffles notwithstanding, she knows her way around a pair of knives like nobody’s business, as well as her own fists. She practices and works out regularly.
When it comes to dealing with other people, be they elves or human, she’s…. a brat. She has little to no respect for anybody, and she makes no effort to hide it. She rushes headlong into decisions and her own pride weighs far more heavily than any unbiased evaluation of the situation. She frequently ends up in hot water because of this- she does not simply make rash decisions once in a while, she simply never bothers to consider any position besides her gut and her pride.
She’s not overly popular in any group, and it’s not hard to see why. While her outstanding self confidence and conviction often initially bring others to look up to her, this inevitably fades quickly as they realize that she very nearly never bases choices on critical thinking.
Alistair’s in for a hell of a ride making a Warden out of this kid.
