Character Profile: Halli
Full Name: Halli
Age: 17
Physical Description: Halli is a dwarf, but a thin one. She has brown hair, which she typically wears as two braids down her back. She has big brown eyes that speak volumes. Halli is most comfortable wearing flowing cloaks in dark shades of blue.

Bio: Although born in the Castle of the Elves, Halli was raised in Drumple, the dwarf village on Phantasma. Her parents, Jacob and Er’ika, dotted on their daughter, and kept her sheltered. She grew up with a love of books and stories full of adventure. When she learned of her real heritage, and that she was a holy paladin with the power to heal, Halli is completely shocked…and very scared. But she comes into her true calling with grace, and blossoms into a beautiful young woman.
Likes: Halli loves to read, and bring the love of reading to others, especially children.
Dislikes: Halli hates conflict and violence. This may sound strange for a holy paladin, but it’s actually the reason she is one: to bring peace and harmony to her group, and keep them safe and protected.
Special Abilities: Halli has the power to heal small and large wounds, and can even revive the dead.
Weapons: Halli carries a mace that’s a family heirloom and a shield Queen Laurali of the elves gave her on her first quest. They’re both to help give her strength and wisdom on her quests, but if needed, she can use them to defend herself or her friends.
Hobbies: Halli loves to read as often as possible.


Nodding, Halli held her arms straight out at her sides, as she was taught, and began to conjure her larger healing spell.  It took a lot of concentration, but suddenly she felt the spell begin to rise within her.  Her eyes grew wide as she felt the sensation of her healing spell start to flow through her body.  She could feel it stirring slowly inside her, growing stronger and stronger.  With her arms outstretched, her long braided ponytails suddenly started spinning behind her head, and she could feel a warm sensation flow through her.  At the peak of everything Halli was feeling, she suddenly felt the energy flow completely through her, and as it passed outward from her body, her hands shot straight up in the air above her head.  She could see the scars, burns and bruises on Silvor’s body cover up and close as he was healed, and his body recovered its full strength again.  The whole process only took about a minute, but to Halli, it felt like an eternity.

Everyone smiled at her, and admired her work, looking over Silvor’s previously torn up arms, now fully healed and normal-looking.  Silvor felt completely rejuvenated.
Halli stood staring at him in amazement, catching her breath. 

“Oh, my God, did I really do that?”

“You sure did!” Silvor replied, beaming.

“Halli, you did it!” Red exclaimed.  “Congratulations!”

The three friends laughed, cheered and hugged each other in celebration.  They knew it was a moment they would never forget.
