Walk Into an Event: Winter Festival in Galma

Itzal of River Rush || River God || 898 || FC: Soo-Hyuk Lee || NRP Original Character || OPEN
Come, let us die together.
There was once a small body of water branching from River Rush where the Fords of Beruna and the Great Woods meet. Itzal, a young river god, decided to govern that part of River Rush and soon built a family consisting his half-nymph wife, daughter, and son. The small branch thrived under his care, attracting more river gods and naiads to join him and protect it. Itzal was a happy river god who found immense joy in splashing any passersby; he also loved to swim and feel his body joining with the rush of the water, believing it was his own way of being one with the river. More than all that, this river god was a mischievous father, one who was not afraid to wrestle with his children, join in their pranks, or beat them in swimming races. Not afraid to put down his pride, Itzal was usually (and happily so) at the mercy of his children.
At the time of Caspian I’s arrival, Narnia was in turmoil. Many fought and many more died. Itzal was one of those who survived, always fighting, always ready to protect his branch of Rush River even when the other water spirits abandoned it in fear of its already fragile state. Nevertheless, the Telamrines won, took Narnia under their control, and begun to make use of the land without caring for the spirits in the trees and water. Trees were cut, and water was manipulated for their settlements. As a consequence of this brutality, tree spirits went into a deep slumber and soon enough the water spirits followed through. Itzal was one of the last to sleep for one sole reason: his wife, only a half-nymph, and his children, more human than nymph, couldn’t sleep alongside him. Unable to leave the river—his source of life—for a long period of time, Itzal told his family to find refuge with talking Beasts hiding in the Great Woods. After a teary farewell, it was the last time Itzal ever saw them.
When the four Pevensies and Aslan helped Caspian X gain the Narnian throne, the spirits of the land were freed from their slumber. Many were joyous and many more celebrated. Itzal didn’t. When he awoke, his branch of River Rush had dwindled to a small, stagnant pond that was abused, polluted, and trashed by Telmarines. While not surprising, Itzal still screamed in agony when he realized he has an emaciated body and crippled right leg—a horrid reflection of his pond’s state. Overcome with rage, loneliness, and bitterness, Itzal began drowning anyone who comes near his pond. Telmarines are his favorite victims, though anyone is free game. Unwilling to let anyone convince him otherwise, Itzal doesn’t trust anyone anymore. He spends most, if not all, of his days and nights wondering about his family’s fate.

Noyuri of the Stars || Fallen Star || 537 || FC: Scarlett Johansson || NRP Original Character || OPEN
I can take good care of myself, thank you very much for your con—actually, would you like to help me weed my garden?
Noyuri is always described as a beauty, and she agrees. Confidence steadily yet quietly exuding from how she carries herself, Noyuri loves herself. She is happy with her figure, her looks, her voice—everything. This star makes good use of her physical appearance to her advantage (for she noticed again and again that people tend to be kinder to those who look attractive) such as having others complete tedious tasks for her or provide her with free items. It is because of these acts that Noyuri has grown to be lazy. Insults don’t rile her, for, instead, spiteful words are actually misinterpreted into reinforcement to the fact that she is, indeed, very admirable. Although she can be manipulative with her looks and is not above flirting, she’s not excessively vain. Noyuri takes care of her health but doesn’t completely obsess about her looks, and while she won’t hesitate in complimenting herself, she doesn’t insult others to build up her confidence. In fact, she is attracted to all sorts of splendor and believes anyone can be beautiful as long as they act like her.
When Noyuri was still a child, her mother brought her down to Narnia as means of learning more about the world. The beauty of the land enthralled her, encouraging her to protect it to the best of her abilities. It was also during this trip that she encountered a group of human schoolchildren and easily befriended them except for three girls mesmerized by Noyuri’s soft glow; overcome with jealously, the girls quipped that Noyuri must use her beauty, which must be her only endearing quality, to entice attention and acquire shallow love. While Noyuri was fully aware of the malice, she merely saw the situation as proof that she had something worthy to be proud of. Thus, Noyuri grinned and exclaimed her gratitude for being seen as beautiful. From that day on, the things closest to Noyuri’s heart are Narnia and her promise to love herself. Her devotion to Narnia eventually helped her in attaining a position in one of Narnia’s summer constellations: the Leopard. Shining bright in both body and persona, Noyuri lived her lazy days with careless joy.
The coming of the Telmarine Age ended it all. Caspian I conquered Narnia, and when one of his army’s raided a Narnian rebel settlement, Noyuri, enraged that bloodshed was done under her watch, exterminated the army and, because she never experienced strong feelings like anger, she unintentionally killed the rebels as well. Noyuri never returned to her place in the sky. Even though her faith in Aslan grew stronger, she lost her glow. Noyuri became a fallen star, unwilling and unable to forgive anyone who hurt Narnia.
There is now a woman living in a quaint cottage beside the Glasswater Creek just as it enters the Great Woods. Most of the time, travelers are welcome to stay and more likely than not, they are coerced into cleaning and cooking for a smiling beauty. However, if the traveler was found to have done an immoral deed of any magnitude, they would have to face the blade of a fallen star.
NRPMASTERLIST NEEDS CHAVA!
Why she’s wanted:
- She’s a harpy—that’s enough reason
- She steals food and, most importantly, gossip
- One can hear her from miles away (and it’s not just her “stories”)
- She’s really kind—if she likes you
