Appearance: Zolda is a blind medusa. With a pretty average height and frame, she still manages to be quite attractive. She usually wears a wig with red hair and has peach colored skin. Her piercingly blue eyes seem to be a perfect shape and size on her face but are very pale. Over all, Zolda is a very attractive.

Background: Zolda was raised by her mother while living in the mountains. One day while just wondering around, she was found by an adventuring party, who stabbed out her of her eyes before being chaste off by her mother. Because of this event, Zolda lost her ability to petrify people as will as her ability to see. After a few years, Zolda killed her mother, donned a wig and the name of Kara and then came down the mountain to a city at the base of the mountain. There she trained to become an assassin despite her handicap. After her training, she joined the local assassin guild and donned the name, Mistress of Shadows. It was there she met Ranwyn. Ranwyn was hired to destroy her guild by a rival guild and offered her a deal. The deal was if would get him into the guild and killed the guild master for him, he would spare her life and pay her well. She agreed, got him in and killed her own guild master. After that she now travels with Ranwyn for reasons no one can figure out. The real reason is that she has a crush on Ranwyn (a fact only known by one only person). Other then that, her only true friend is Cerider. This is Zolda’s most secret personal fact. The thing is, one, Cerider is currently a companion of Líndal Telrúnya, Ranwyn’s mortal enemy, and, two, he is an ex-member of her old guild (she’s the reason that he’s not dead). Other then being companions with mortal enemies, they are still the closest of friends (Cerider is the one person who knows about her crush).

Roleplaying Note: Zolda is an odd person to say the least. When it comes to killing, she more ruthless and cold then Ranwyn (and that’s saying a lot), but other then that, she and acts like any slaphappy young girl. In this respect, she’s just a normal girl, of what a blind medusa can be. Her favorite things to do are hanging out with Ranwyn or Cerider, Dance, and go to festivals and carnivals. To her, being an assassin is just a job, just like being a baker or solider.
