This is Phaere, she is one of my first NPCs.

For those who want to know more, Phaere is a young dark elven priestess of Eilistraee, and quite the definition of a stormy girl. She's a passionate artist and a wandering performer: a thrill-hunting bohemian who lives with intensity, extravagance, and without rules. A virtuoso of the violin (actually, of the shalaquin, but w/e) and a sublime dancer and acrobat, she gets a high from performing and seeing the expression and feeling of rapture that she causes in those who witness her.
She's a dreamer and a traveler, a wanderlust adventure-lover who wants to experience everything the world has to offer to the fullest, and to let herself be filled with marvel and emotion. Due to what she lived through, she's extremely attached to Eilistraee--as one of her priestesses, she strives to bring joy, create beauty, and defeat tyranny wherever she goes.
At her core, she's a charming, eccentric, wild, irredeemably naughty, adorably impish, daredevil rogue, who just loves to cause mischief wherever she goes—and to do it with unique, unmistakable style. She's reckless to the bone, and enjoys the feeling of adrenaline that comes with tempting fate and challenging the mighty for a cause that she believes in.
Phaere is extreme in everything--she has this unmistakable personal flair that puts in all she does. She is a huge tease, and loves to amaze, impress, and to elicit powerful emotions, so she always acts artful, elegant, theatrical, even dramatic: whatever she does, she wants to look memorable and enchanting while doing it (there's a reason why she's standing on a lamp-post, or why her clothing is so out of place for a medieval-like fantasy setting).
That said, due to a brutal past, all of this came as a desperate attempt to establish her own identity, and to fill a void that she constantly feels inside (for a reason that is hard to explain without telling her story). After nearly losing her sense of self and having her personality shattered, she is obsessed with defining herself, her style and principles that are unique, visceral, and stand out anywhere, to make her truly “Phaere”. Due to those experiences, she has a darkly romantic, mysterious side: there are certain moments when she just cannot help but give in to the fleetingness of life, and this can reflect on her art, words, or decisions.
