ávra orage lives in the temperate forest region of zyle, who are glassmakers. they value light touch and patience, and are very private people. the typical dress of this region is lightly colored clothing (either white, cream, or delicate blues/greens) that are very breezy and not stifling at all. most girls wear dresses or tops paired with skirts, while men prefer loose leggings and tunics (although some girls also wear leggings/cropped pants and tunics, while men sometimes wear kilts or robes). many go barefoot, as unity with nature is extremely important to these people. in fact, many adorn themselves with flowers, leaves, twigs, and the like. they value nature’s harmony and their greatest hope is to display it within their glassmaking. the region’s political system is democratic, with an elected council of six people to help keep peace. most people live in houses built into trees, while glass-making buildings, the council’s abode, and some other buildings reside on the ground. (more will be revealed later in this story)
ávra orage is one of the most prestigious glassmakers in zyle, despite the fact she is one of the youngest masters and her clan is not at all reputable for glassmaking. she is self taught, and many of her works have been displayed in bascalin, even in the royal palace (from delicate stained glass scenes to brilliant baubles). ávra crafted her skill at a young age, when she realized she had a talent with handling glass. she went to masters in the dead of the night to learn their secrets, secrets they had revealed to no one else. in the end she created a craft uniquely her own, one that no one has been able to replicate.
as for ávra’s personality; she could be described as “ a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma;” she is mute, but her silence is by her choice, and she is not shy. many speculate it is to keep her secrets and techniques from spilling out, but others do not think this is the case. she has a critical, sharp eye, but is not very expressive, speaking in mostly her eyes and with small, mona-lisa like smiles. she is a silent rebel, and resists most types of authority. she is confident with a dash of perfectionism, but lacks any arrogance, although an introvert more than anything else, with an inclination towards disliking most people.
she lives alone, but has a mother, father, and two adopted siblings (a brother and a sister) that all live together. she lives in the glassmaker’s quarters, while they live in the familial quarters.
