What do you look like: Jecieyn is a young elf, five feet tall, slender and lithe. Narrow hips, built like a ballet dancer, only petite. She has aheart-shaped face with pointed elven features: pointed chin, high cheekbones, pointed little nose, arched eyebrows. Small hands and feet. Her hair is golden blond and very thick, but not curly. It's cut short on the left side and worn long on the right. She usually braids the right side.
Her eyes are Caribbean green and lovely. She could probably charm a mauve dragon with her eyes.
She is not stunningly beautiful, except for her eyes. She is very pretty, but very elven. She is *not* your average chainmail-bikini-clad, eyeshadow-wearing, magazine-cover curvy blonde woman who happens to have pointed ears. She is Truly Elven. That's important. She looks racially different from human women, and being Liynendei, rather different from other elves. Lighter.
Her resting expression (that's a Jecieynic term for the expressions people have when just at rest, not openly showing any emotion--look in the mirror to see yours) is open and friendly and bright. The darkest look she ever gets is troubled or anxious.
She is quick on her feet, dancing and darting as opposed to walking.
Describe your attitude: She is generally merry and joyous. She is very inexperienced; naive.
Biggest Character Flaw: Tends to wrap her heart around people, places and things far too much.
Personal Quotes: "Face the music and dance"; "Live to dance another day"; "Journey on!"

Favorite Body Part on the opposite sex: She looks into eyes and studies faces; she also likes to watch people move, see how they would dance
Any Tattoos or Birthmarks, Where and of what: None. The Liynendei like bare skin as the gods gave it
Any piercings, Where: Two holes in her left ear; she wears two stud earrings--stones the color of her eyes
Best place to hang out: Her own tree in Liynendel; anywhere the journeyers are; all over Salamander in any meeting place; at the River Forum there; the ballroom; a certain quiet kingdom in her mind
What do you sleep in, and where do you sleep: A very old hand-me-down shirt from her cousin Ril, too large for her. It hangs to her knees. It is white linen with billowy sleeves, a wide square collar and bardic-style laces up the front. At home in Liynendel, she sleeps in a hammock in her tree, which is like a banyan and also like a willow. The Liynendei word for it is "daeniya-vol."
Important lesson(s) you've learned: That we all make our own truths, and these truths are ever-unfolding; that the heart and mind are the strangest fairy kingdoms of all, and the journey into them a lifework

History: Jecieyn comes from Liynendel, a forest country far to the west of Salamander. Although it is mostly elven, other woodland beings live there--some humans, too. Liynendel is shining and open-minded and politically correct, a social democracy with elected regents. It is highly magical. No one can find it on maps. Outlanders can only find it if they are lost nearby on the way to somewhere else, and only if they can pronounce its name correctly once they have found its way-sign.
The Liynendei are powerful mages, talented healers, clever traders, skilled craftspeople. Not many are knights. Together with neighboring coastal Traiera, they have a navy for defense alone. They tend to magically divert ships away from their realms.
Family: Her uncle is Arieyn, Darion's identical twin. She hasn't seen her Uncle Arieyn or Jece since she was about two human years; her mother since she was a teenager. They are all in the mountains. She is very close to her cousins, the brothers Driav and Ril.
Abilities: Jecieyn is special in having once found the Exact Centre of Liynendel, which can be found only by fate, by a Liynendei. Those who discover this place are soaked in magic for all their lives--charmed. They cannot work magic, exactly--they rather *are* magic. In Jeci, this shows as a charm spell that acts as her protection. She barely knows how to use it--it just is part of her.
Otherwise, she has no particular abilities. She is a dancer and so is dexterous. She isn't strong, but has great stamina. She's healthy and heals quickly.
