- Stubborn | Awkward | Shy | Critical | Easily distracted | A bit reserved | Sarcastic | Unyielding
Tally can be critical and sarcastic at first glance but once you give her a chance you will see her true side where she's a cheery, happy person. She has ups and downs as any other but day by day she grows more confident and more happy about herself. She hasn't forgiven herself for her past but realizes she can do little about it now and best not linger on it. Still, being as stubborn as she is she has a hard time letting it go, only feeling guilt as soon as she doesn't do good work to redeem herself.
She can be a bit awkward, often feeling out of place when emotions come into the conversation, thus leading to her saying something out of the blue to try change the subject. She is also easily distraced which is easily seen when you have a conversation with her. Her mind seems to wander everywhere, to the sky above and the river below. When it comes to feelings she will try to avoid the subject, rather discussing other things that personal matters. She hasn't dealt with the death of her brother and all the horrible things she did during her time as a spy and after that. Guilt, shame, angst, sadness and anger are feelings hard to discuss. Only with people she really trusts she will talk about that.
Among people she doesn't know she's a bit shy, but not afraid to speak her mind and when she's around her friends she's happy and confident, often joking and doing pranks.
"Just because I have a somewhat dark past doesn't mean I need to be all doom and gloom."
The Vahari family, strong both in the trade buissness and the political world of Estraude gave Tally and her twin brother Keran a busy but loving childhood. As they grew up they studied both languages, etiquette and their own class path, Keran as a Wizard and Tally as a Rogue.
As they became fully trained in their arts of their class path they decided to join the military of Miras for ten years until the death of Tally's twin brother, Keran. It happened during a mission to recover secret documents regarding the safety of the Miras Kingdom. They had located the thieves to a forgotten fort out in the wilderness between Reluir and Iadlain. The group decided to wait for reinforcements but if a plan can go to hell it sure will. With a lot of things going on from several different directions an explosion occured, leaving Tally as the sole survivor.
10 Months later when she had fully healed from the incident in the wilderness the Miras Military approached her, asking them if she wanted to help with the continued investigation due to security leaks from within. Tally agreed and decided to continue her work, anything to keep her mind occupied. Tally was sent to Tusa to pose as a Mercenary in one group there. As the years went by she slowly climbed up the steps within the different groups and gathered and sent information back to Miras. Even though Tally thought of herself as doing a good deed the pain of losing her twin, of losing the one closest to her was too heavy to bear. She began to go down in a downward spiral. She became the interrogator and torturer of their group. She forgot about her job to Miras. One day as she was called to her lover, and leader of the group she was part of she a diary in his office while he was out. The first entries in the journal was about regular stuff, regular life but then she found a part that triggered her most awful memory she had to read it. It was about the incident where her brother died. If she hadn't been paralyzed she would have saved him. The leader was the one who had shot her with a lightning spell and stolen the documents. When the leader arrived he quickly captured her and kept her as a prisoner, trying to get as much information out of her as possible. After Two years she decided it was time to flee. Dislocating her thumb she got out of the handcuffs and managed to attack a guard outside her cell. She got the keys and his weapons before locking him inside. She made her way to the leaders' office and attacked him. She asked him questions but as he refused she lost her temper and killed him. She gathered the documents from his room and returned to Miras. She left the Military after that, officially, travelling for a few years before deciding to repent. She went to Cantor and decided to dedicate her life to help others, to repent for what she did during her time in Tusa.◊ Now
