I was tagged by @borrowedtimeandspace! And for my lesser-known wood sprite bae, Jiria.
- She is an only child and grew up wishing she had a younger sister. This was until her friend got a younger sister, and then she alternated between wanting to play with the sprout and wanting to avoid it entirely.
- It took her three tries to convince Bowman Leafwing to meet her without someone else around so she could ask him to court her.
- Their courtship is very lax and comfortable – when it’s not fiercely competitive. Jiria hasn’t won a race yet, but she’s hoping to someday.
- She considered training to be a knight, but decided she didn’t have it in her to hurt encroaching animals, as knights have to do from time to time.
- She stands at about 3.6 inches tall, and has a fairly athletic build from races.
- Her favorite food is hawthorn berries with honey drizzled on. Since Wellwood doesn’t have many hawthorn trees, it’s not often that she gets a chance at this. Bowman brings some to her from his patrols sometimes.
- The Petalkin surname is very old among the Wellwood sprites. However, thanks to her brash attitude and flight-ready fitness, Jiria would not be categorized as a flowerkin, herself, the source of the name (a term for dainty or mild sprites, used for male or female sprites interchangeably).
- Flying higher than the canopy makes her nervous, but she does like to hide among the branches of the Big Oak to see out across the forest.
