Character name: Clara Dawson
Alias: Lavian/Lav
Gender: Female
Age: N/A (Deceased)
Race: Human
Class: Death Knight(Bloodmaiden) (Former Kirin Tor Battle-mage)
Rank: Sergeant Dismissed.

Birth region: Lordaeron
Specific area/town:Born in Stratholme.
Family: Clara came from a family of merchants who gained their profit through arms and silk. A joint business venture with another family that elevated their wealth together. Everyone in the family was expected to be educated through literature and mathematics with the urging to follow into the footsteps of their elders. They had many wealthy years with little struggle inbetween. Some of the children within the family in later years were given to lord's for favour and service to their house names, Clara was one such daughter. A retainer to old Vanimedle. Her family name continued to flourish in the business trade until the fall of Stratholme and the area around to where it has since been erased from history. Most if not all forgetting about the merchant family and the business that once was.

In later years she got married to a man named Kolsva to which they had two daughters together named Gallandria and Victoria. She also had a sister through spirit named Iriel Silversong. A high elf she value'd dearly from her mortal life.


Known friends or enemies: Clara, being what she is, is faced with partnerships but hardly friendships so as current it's a short one.
Friends: Bishop Fortesgue Witherhope, Elegost Dawnweaver, Adrielle Jainrose. Celeste Vanimedle, Tachal, Kolsva Dawson, Odgan Strongbrew, Eidan Hawke. Iriel Silversong, Arenfel Serpentine.
Enemies: Scourge renment, the horde, zealots and witch hunters


Description:Clara is a woman who stands moderate in height at around five feet usually seen in either purple robes or clad in particular heavy plate with her runeblade mounted to her back whilst sporting an alliance military tabard. Her armor, grey like her hair is seen as scorched and dented in places in a way no one living should be wearing their armour in adition to being often blood smudged. Her facial expression carries emptyness with the strain of surfacing emotions from time to time. Her flesh cold to the touch with a few marks of decay that seems to be showing through on her face but it is not at all hard to tell she uses some means to cover as much up as she can.

Personality: Clara is by nature distant, a realist and honourable. She steps out of the usual Death Knight norms of openly living in anguish guilt and sorrow. Serving in the Scourge since Arthas' attack on Dalaran had caused her to live her initial years as part of the scourge war machine in loyalty. She acted as a noble soul even as she cleansed the living around her in her king's name. This was her time to act in bitter loyalty and had years to develop herself until she was given free will with the rest of the so call coined  third generations and second generations that were at the battle of Light's Hope.

Ever since she regained her will, her personality has changed somewhat but kept at the core value now promoting her honour even more mixed in with civility and honesty.  She still regains the traits of undeath in the form of her former monstrosity but she has adjusted the years to try and refrain the urge somewhat but fully accepting herself as a monster hence she is not one to react and lash out like an angry child at any funny looks or insults.

She value's a calm posture and mind and would react within reason of such a scenario. Knowing full well the fragility of the death knights and the alliance she must preserve. She knows she must make a leverage and not cause further distrust amongst her allies. Regretfully that is left to others of her kind to do instead. She aims to prove herself.

However she has a protective soul and believes in the preservation of the mortal races even if she is beyond that herself now. She feels a sense of duty to preserve the future generations to come for she knows she very well mortals are the key to Azeroth's future.

History: Clara was born into a wealthy merchant family in Stratholme, one of several daughters of the Dawson family she grew up with with a spoilt upbringing with an affinity to magic. For this she was sent to the Kirin Tor at a young age for training. This however caused conflictions when she was later promised to Lord Victus of House Vanimedle due to business arrangements forced on by her merchant family, a resentment she had to endure because of her young age. She was sent to the estate to where she was permitted to be tutored by one of the experienced magi's in the lord's service. She served as a retainer to the house from her mid teens for the next four years.

However her service wouldn't end on kindness. Clara, like many of her companions and those of the Vanimedle bloodline would fall victim in those four years in her service. Melfeena Ireth Vanimedle, the oldest daughter and second oldest child of this house would commit slaughter upon her own blood that night, including guests and retainers alike, the birth of Ireth, the birth of a witch. Clara was among the survivors to be missed by the witch aswell as her infant daughter Gallandria and a number of others who lived by chance.

She proceeded to live on her living years as a wife, mother and a magi who was once more intergrated into Kirin Tor society as she always had desired. This life kept her happy until the rise of Arthas and the scourge who sieged and broke into Dalaran. At the expense to save others she paid with her life when her sister, Iriel Silversong was to recieve a death-blow from the harnd of the scourge. Clara instead intervened and took the blow meant for Iriel. This was the day she became the scourge.

Her eleven years since have been ups and downs and a whole slew of adventures.

Combat

Fighting style: Path of blood. Dancing sword mastery.
Information: Clara has always followed the path of blood since her introduction to undeath over a decade ago. During her entire time as the undead it has allowed her to further develop and become stronger as time went on.

She sets a firm mastery over her blade and takes advantage of any blood that exposes itself to her in the midsts of combat, utilising it as a weapon for herself and her regenerative compatibilities, even going as far as to take the blood of fallen foes and storing it for later use.

She stands by a code in that she will not raise the dead to fight alongside her be it by ghoul or even raising an army of the dead and as a result of this she has had to adapt to other means of reinforcing her safety when times got tough. Her answer to all this was the aid of constructs such as the gargoyle but her defining aid comes from the power of two dancing runic weapons that fight by themselves with the death knight; Tyrfra and Erebos.

Tyrfra and Erebos: These are the two blades that empower Clara when in the midst of battle and as such replace her need to raise ghouls to defend her. Tyrfra represents the power of frost, Erebos represents the power of unholy might and Clara's own blade represents a bit of all when they are summoned, thus not having a blade focused on her power of blood.

The blades fight by themselves as if wielded by two unseen spirits, defending Clara and acting as an extension to her strength. They come with their own skillset such as a ranged strike or a cyclone strike and aid her in parry defense when required. They are fueled by the dark unholy energies of converted blood she takes from her foes and linger in the shadowrealm when unsummoned. This of course comes with it's own price and weaknesses.
