Dakini is a character in the Oloth realm being played on RealityFault, which is mostly a MUCK armature with a table-top game flavor and some really spiffy code that allows us to record our game logs. Read more information on the games being run on RF.
Dakini grins lazily at you from behind the reflective blue-green shades which hide her eyes. Her hair is long and tousled, a bright, red-gold mane that occasionally hides her small pointed ears. She's a tall, slender, strong woman, with small but callused hands, and well-muscled forearms.
She wears a soft, comfortably loose, ivory silk shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Over that is a sturdy, quilted, sleeveless tunic of dark indigo blue embroidered with intertwined silvery stars and ivory-gold unicorns. It is belted off snugly with a wide, well-worn leather belt. On her right hip, tied down about the right thigh, rides a holstered flechette pistol. On her left hangs a decorated and runically embossed scabbard with the plain, worn-leather-and-wire wrapped pommel of a short sword protruding from it. Sturdy, worn dueling gloves are tucked into the back of the belt, mostly hiding a cross-holstered dagger.
Slung over one shoulder is her battered, padded leather airwoman's jacket, heavily decorated on the back with a rabidly snarling, eight-limbed, winged beast, and numerous other colorful decorations on shoulders, arms, and front. Her long legs are fitted with snug breeches, and her knee-high, well-used black leather boots and jacket smell pleasingly of years of quality leather care.
Writing Dakini's Biography
This was a bit of an experiment for me. I didn't feel I could really write much up for a supposed autobiography. After all, I've not played the character enough for her to have a past that's interesting to read about. So I decided to try something a little different. Any problems or difficulties reading the poetry on the following auto-biography page for Dakini is my fault alone, of course, and not to be blamed on the style of poetry.
