Common Name: Ignis of Animi (“Fire at heart”), Notable
True Name: Junam Achik'aj (Dreaming Together)
Race: Enlil
Age: 20

Appearance: Ignis is rather slender, even by Enlil standards, with raven colored head feathers that reach her shoulders. A dull, almost metallic shade of red down covers her chest, neck, torso, and upper arms. Longer, dark red feathers that hang from her elbows to her hips allow her to glide while similar feathers cover the lower half of her body. Her plumage creates a sharp contrast with her pale, angular face and dark brown eyes. Despite her lack of height (standing at about five foot two), her feathers can fluff some up to give Ignis a rather fearsome and strong appearance when she is highly agitated.

Persona: Ignis is an eccentric young woman. While friendly and incredibly intelligent, Ignis is a tad absent minded and at times seems to lack common sense. She has a sharp wit, a love of adventure, and determination when she needs it most.

True to her enlil heritage, Ignis is a very independent person and loves the feeling of freedom she gets from travelling and exploring. Nothing makes the feathered woman happier than sharpening her skills and putting them to the test under the heat of a potentially dangerous situation. Unfortunately, this gets her into trouble and Ignis feels a lot less confident once she realizes she's in over her head. The feisty avian’s biggest dream, a testament to her freedom loving nature and ambition, is to learn how to fly.

Past: Ignis’ mother’s dream was to see the trees of her homeland restored. As a result she travelled from her home, a small village in Boreas, with a young Iggy in tow to Terminus in order to study engineering and forestry. After years of learning about trees and machines, she returned to Boreas to assist with the effort to encourage the growth of trees taller than those of the past and the construction of architecture that would allow Enlils to enjoy the same heights their pre-Cataclysmic ancestors did.

As a result of her mother’s pursuit, Iggy spent a good deal of her childhood travelling. She saw many types of people, plants, and animals. Enchanted by the strange and new things she saw, Ignis became enamoured with adventure and exploration. Her mother, Corvis, encouraged the young Enlil’s bright spirit and curiosity, allowing Iggy to read texts on a wide variety of subjects and study other languages. One of Corvis' favorite memories of Ignis is of the young avian curled up amidst machinery in her workshop with her nose buried in a book about some fantastic adventure or new discovery.

Despite her mother’s efforts to feed Ignis’s hunger for adventure, knowledge, and new skills, Iggy became rather restless and desired to travel on her own. Corvis, recognizing that her daughter would not be convinced to do anything else, insisted that the young avian go to Terminus to study first. Ignis agreed only somewhat reluctantly to stay in Terminus until she had enough skill and strength to defend herself on her adventures.

Amicus

Description:

Amicus is a short, stumpy mons infans from the forests of Boreas. He befriended Ignis while she was living there and initiated a contract with her so he could accompany her on her travels. He is about nine inches tall, whether he will grow to be a foot and a half or remain short has yet to be seen. His body is rather stump-like, covered in bark and leaves. He has branches for arms with four finger-like twig appendages on his hands as well as a fifth appendage that functions like a very flexible thumb. Occasionally, berries will grow on the mons infans. The woodland spirit is quirky, often using gestures and funny dances to communicate his intentions. Amicus is rather spirited and despite his limited communication capabilities, unafraid to share his opinions. He is also protective of Ignis and perhaps just a little possessive. This is especially apparent in the 'fights' he picks with Ignis' drone, Cora, because the bird-like machine is viewed as a competitor for Ignis' attention. Amicus also has a habit of pinching people who annoy him or his contractor.​

Abilities: Patronus ex Silva (Patron of the Forest)
Mons infans have been been known to use magic in order to heal and help others. The closeness between Ignis and Amicus from their empathic bond has inspired the mons infans to use his connection with forests to defend his contractor. Amicus' protection manifests itself as a shield made of bark, branches, and vines. The shield is generated within 30 meters of Ignis’ person using 500 of her vigor and endures until it suffers 2 tiers of damage, Ignis moves more than 30 meters away from the shield, or it is dismissed. Unlike shields cast by magical spells, Amicus’ control over the vines and bark does not end after its creation. The shield can be moved, levitated, and bent while active, making it more versatile than normal Aquila spells.
