Appearance: Zar'na (Zarna in Orcish) is of average height and build for a female Troll, standing about seven feet tall. Her hair accounts for a fair deal more, however. She has light blue skin, yellow eyes and violent, electric purple hair that is worn long and loose. In other words, just like allmost every other Troll female. A large tatto of a Black Widow spider is on her right shoulder, her only truly distiguishing mark.
Becuse Trolls constantly regenerate, she has to get it re-inked every month. Some days she wonders if its worth the effort.
She appears to be constantly in motion; its rare that she isn't doing something. She may be fidgeting, punching the air, or carrying on to some unseen beat, but she will rarely stand still and do nothing. She always carries herself with a certain exuberance and confidence, a visable love for life and excitement.
Her hunter's leathers are form-fitting and well maintained, if possibly cut to reveal a little more skin then would be normal. But only a small, tasetful amount, of course.
Zar'na is hyperactive, enthusiastic, outgoing and bouyant. She's friendly almost to the point of obnoxiousness, always trying to meet new people and have a good time. She carries on with an air of flippant irreverancy; to her, nothing is a big deal unless its stopping her form enjoying herself and having a good time. She could even be considered hyperactive, often drawing comparisons to a Gnome on a sugar buzz. She's also something of a flirt, always on the look out for a hunky young guy with big... tusks.
Of late, she has developed a new obnoxious habit of walking up to seemingly random female Trolls and asking them if she knows them from somehwere or if they look familar. Nobody knows.
One of her more obvious traits is the way she laughs. Often, the tiniest little things will set her off, resulting in a round of cackling laughter. There's no real consistency as to what it could be; somone falling over, a good joke, the defeat of a particularly skilled opponent. She just does. At the same time, there is often a strange seriousness to her; when she wants something, she won't rest until she gets it. A good example would be her pet. When she heard aobut the large Night Web spiders of Tirisfal, she decided to travel across the world to the Glades in order to get one - never mind that there were just as suitable spiders closer to home. It was what she wanted.
She gets along well with the other races of the Horde; she thinks that Orcs are cool in a hunky way, and that Tauren are cute and fuzzy. Even the forsken are "kinda weird, but kinda cool too" to her mind. Only the Blood Elves have been a problem to her; she knows the long history of conflict between the Troll and Elven races. On the the other hand, she figures "If Thrall likes 'em, they can't be all bad."
Of course, seeing two Blood Elf guys getitng it on with each other may help improve her feelings towards the race. She's seeking volunteers.
Zar'na's early life was none to extraordinary; she was born on the Echo Islands and raised amongst the exiled Darkspear community. From an early age, she was interested in the wildlife of the islands; specifically the various insects and arachnids that dwelt there. When younger, she would often collect them and keep them as "pets". While they would usually escape or die (or even eat each other), she wasn't discouraged; she'd just go out and find some more.
The evacuation of the isles was a great loss to the Darkspear trolls, but Zar'na seemed to get over it relatively quickly. Instead, she quickly adapted to her new life in Durotar, spending her time hunting and tracking the various beasts that dwelled there. It was during this time that she began to form an idea in the back of her head. It was a strange, silly idea, but one that she was determined to follow through.
She was going to have an adventure!
Her idea was simple; travel the world and see what was out there and have fun while doing it. She had heard all manner of tales of the world and knew that Durotar was but a very, very small part of it. So she was determined to see as much of it as possible. Of course, she also heard that the world was full of all manner of nasty, snaggletoothed beasties and other perils. To her mind, however, that was just going to make things more fun. After all, it'd be dull if everything was easy.
Armed with a wobbly bow, a battered axe and her pet spider, Boof, she set out to see the world.
Except that didn't work out. She got distracted, and got lazy. Next thing she knew, she'd joined a pirate crew, been booted off it and ended up penniless and drunk in Thunder Bluff.
Boof (da Spider)Edit
Zar'na's first (and to date only) pet is a large Night Web Spider from the Tirisfal Glades. A naturally bad-tempered and irritable beast, she (Zar'na has never explicitly checked. She's just generally assumed that Boof is indeed a "she") seems to delight in sinking her fangs into whatever Zar'na points her at. While still cranky and irritable, the Spider does seem to be loyal to its master. Or it could be that it doesn't want to leave sombody who provides it with a constant supply of food.
She has never explained exactly why she named her (her?) "Boof." When asked, she just imply says that it's "Boof da Spider, yanno?"
