OOC Assumptions

  • Salsolans may assume...
    • Hearing that she's originally from New Caledonia — and joined Salsola right before NC disbanded
    • Seeing her with Marina
    • Noticing that Nín is very interested in integrating into Salsolan culture and learning all that she can

Níndari is a member of New Caledonia, the daughter of Rand Coara and Vodeva Nartholiel, sister to Elemmírë.

At the height of the Tear in the Tapestry, when it seemed the Realm would surely succumb for a second time, her parents, longtime lovers, indulged in the hopelessness of their situation and finally consummated their relationship.

It would never come to light, however, that Vodeva had also rekindled an old flame during the siege, though the Coara patriarch would expertly hide his suspicions when their two daughters — one of the moon, the other of the sun — were delivered after Caledonia’s hard-fought victory.

Níndari and Elemmírë’s first few months of life were relatively nondescript. They were too young to fully realize the implications of the parents whispering behind closed doors the greatness of their patron goddess, the Lady of the Water for whom Nín was named after. Mere children, they accepted the stories of the Goddess as truth, though the girls were cautioned to speak too fondly of Her abroad in the Realm for reasons they couldn’t yet understand. As Nín grows older, however, she begins to realize that the war fought in Her name has far bigger implications for her faith and family than she realized.

There is a growing disquiet within the true Coara — a resentment fanned further still by rigid, unyielding parents, as well as a slew of half-siblings that yet wrest for the affections of an all but absent father. In a strange way, she envies them: for Rand seeks to groom her into a perfect Lorn woman of yore, often sacrificing her comfort and individuality in the process.

but this thing that lives inside of me
will surely rise and wake, and wake, and wake, and wake, and wake
and his seed that bleeds right through to me
and it comes to grab and take, and take, and take, and —



Níndari’s fickle, cagey antics could easily be traced back to her youth and inexperience — some would say she had just only learned how to live, now that she has been blessed the gift of shifting by the gods – but it is a capriciousness that she is unlikely to grow out of. At any given moment, she can either be fearlessly bold and outgoing, or she will withdraw and clam up, entertaining the whims of nothing and no one. In rare instances she may experience bouts of hypomania followed by stints of depression, though these cycles are sporadic at best, nor does she entirely realize that they are occurring.

Without a doubt, she has inherited her father’s flair for the dramatic and his eloquent, if not occasionally manipulative, oratory skills. She smiles a tad too much and too widely, with a self-satisfied slant to her maw, usually hiding her true emotions behind her striking gaze. A strict childhood has given way to daredevilish behavior in order to rebel against the life of piety that her parents have set before her, and Níndari will often resort to extremes if only to witness the shock and awe of her audience. It is a gall that, more times than not, has landed her in trouble, but careful maneuvering of her caretakers has the girl just barely skirting out of any real consequences — for now, at least.


A hybrid through and through, the river nymph’s lineage is difficult to determine at first glance — though it is clear that she is dog above all else. There are subtle influences of her wolf blood in the thickness of her coat, though there are scarcely indicators beyond this. Her long ears are folded back, her tail is long and feathery, and her bruise-blue fur sports a healthy sheen. Naturally (perhaps concerningly, to some) thin, Níndari is but a wisp, and it would seem as though a mere gust of wind could whisk her away at a moment’s notice. As she is freshly shifted, there is obviously still room for growth; but Nín will always be tall and leggy, though her silky fur somewhat disguises this.

From a distance, Níndari very well could be mistaken for her father, though her pelt is overall a darker iteration of his own. Slate bleeds into cadet gray, then to denim blue, before finally bleaching into an off-white at her extremities and underbelly. Embracing her newly acquired optime form most frequently, her silver-gray hair is worn long and unadorned, though occasionally Elemmírë can convince her into braiding it like their ancestors before them. Where her coat is rather dull and drab in coloration, her eyes shine a piercing blue, a trait passed down by her mother.

Familial Connections

* as far as Níndari is aware, she and Elemmírë are full-blooded sisters; however, in reality, they are half-siblings as they have different fathers.

  • Nín feels as though Vodeva abandoned her to the wiles of her father. Though she misses her and Elemmírë terribly, she can no longer wait for them to come save her.
  • Her relationship with Rand is strained, confusing, and extremely uncomfortable.
  • She was just getting to know her half-sibling, Lorien, who her father forbade her from speaking with.
