STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES:
Elpsis has learned from an early age that she has to be self-reliant if she wants to make it in this world. Having never had much of a family, she is quite capable of surviving on her own. In stress situations and times of danger she has shown an ability to make quick decisions and think on her feet. This ties in with the fact that she is a fairly practical girl, though in the past her idea of practical translated into criminal activity. Growing up on the streets after running away from the Jedi forced her to become tough. She won't hesitate to fight dirty if needed.
Elpsis is a powerful pyromancer. Her power enables her to summon flame, burn opponents, heat objects by touch and cook dinner without an oven. In addition to conjuring tempestuous firestorms and thermic lances, she can manipulate magma, which is convenient on a volcano planet.
Elpsis has inherited what one might consider to be her mummy and daddy's 'gifts'. Her mother Coryth Elaris, aside from being a phenomenal healer, is a master empath, which is both a gift and a curse. The Jedi Master is able to feel others' emotions as her own and is quite able to read other people like a book, based on emotional response alone. Likewise Coryth has been endowed with the second sight, that is she receives visions of the future, which again are a double-edged sword. Xerexes, like Coryth, was adept at animal friendship, and master of illusions. Young Elaris is gifted with precognition, natural empathy and an increasingly adept illusionist. She's also good with animals.
Force Sight: She can see through walls, can perceive another person's alignment and is good at piercing illusions, even rather sophisticated ones.
Elpsis is rather gregarious, bubbly, kind and compassionate. Her upbeat attitude makes her easy to like. It also helps her stay composed in battle.
Spiritual. Elpsis was once an atheist, but is now very religious and believes in a feminine pagan deity called the Great White Wolf, who is venerated by a primitive Amazon tribe her mentor belongs to. They believe in the divine nature of the Force and of women. Her spiritual nature gives her confidence and serves as a boost for her. It endows her with a deep respect for nature and also drives her to fight evil, which she identifies as the spawn of the Black Wolf, who is the antithesis of her deity.
She is a redhead, that says it all. Redheads reign!
Elpsis is physically blind and dependent on the Force to see. Put her in a ysalamiri field and she won't see anything. Likewise Voidstone constructs can interfere with her vision. It also puts her at a disadvantage against the Force Dead. Moreover, it hampers various mundane skills. For instance piloting, slicing, using a datapad or reading her messages. Inanimate objects are more difficult for her to perceive, as they lack a Force presence. Her dependence is ironic because she used to resent being a Force-user, but has come to depend on it and see it as a guide. It also hampers various mundane skills.
In the past Elpsis was a loner who experienced little warmth in her life and was both driven by a need to find her family and afraid of it. Now that she has what she yearned for she is afraid of losing it or disappointing them. Beneath her carefree, bubbly attitude she is quite insecure and doubts herself as a master. This can make her very reckless, especially in battle, since she lacks the discipline of a trained soldier. For this reason she's also rather reluctant to train others.
Much like her mother, Elpsis has...a bit of a temper. Redhead rage is a thing after all! One can imagine that it can get her into her share of trouble. Or result in her throwing herself in situations where is clearly over her head.
Though not stupid by any means, Elpis is rather uncouth, blunt and tends to say what she thinks without thinking things through. This makes social situations where a more refined attitude is called for quite awkward.
Mummy's gifts are both a blessing and a curse. Sure, if you're in a fire fight it's handy to know that someone is about to shoot at your head so that you can get out of the way. Likewise it's useful if you can get a read on a business partner's emotion. But it's obviously one hell of a headache if you have no control and the emotions of a crowd start bleeding into you. While her mental shields are good, this can cause issues when people are dying around her on a battlefield. Elpsis will kill if needed, but dislikes it. Unless she considers a slain opponent truly heinous, she will probably pray for their soul after the battle is over.
In a sense Elpsis is a drifter. She regards herself as a knight errant, travelling the stars to right wrongs and beat up bad guys. This nomadic existence makes it difficult to settle down and leaves her disconnected. In alignment terms, she is Chaotic Good and does not fit into rigid hierarchies.
Elpsis' lightsabre duelling skills are mostly defensive. More athletic than muscular, she is no powerhouse when it comes to physical fighting.
Elpsis has strong faith in her visions and her deity. This can be used against her. After all, most of her visions are very cryptic and thus require interpretation. Oftentimes, one sees what one wants to see.
SHIP: A tramp freighter that she 'won' in a card game. In all likelihood her opponent's accusations that she cheated are accurate. Actually, she definitely cheated!

Journal entry written just before the Netherworld Incident:
“So yeah, started writing a journal. Why? Beats me. Guess I should say something corny about how maybe one day someone will read it and find meaning it. Or that I need it for...what's the pompous word again? Catharsis. That's a good one. No thanks. Skipped the cliched 'dear diary' beginning because it's dumb.
Galaxy's gone crazy. Everyone's being dramatic about things. Sith attack this world, Sith attack that world, the 'coalition of fluffy puppies and freedom' gets its arse kicked there. People acting like it's the 'end of the world as we know it'. Or jumping on the bandwagon of the winners as fast as they can. Jedi, Sith, things would be better if both got sucked into a black hole.
Yeah, it's all dramatic, terrible and not my war. More bizarre dreams. People...vanishing...screams...endless desert under a green sun. Creepy. Exit that train of thought, no use thinkin' about it. And probably lay off the spice. It's been ages since my run-in with the latest bounty-hunters Daddy Dearest said. Real close call with the last one of them. Psycho just kept coming and coming, even after getting' his arm blown off. Been told he was what spacers call a 'Reaver'. Nasty creature pumped full of alchemical drugs and pure rage till it turns into a mindless animal. I always knew this Force thing was just messed.
Thank god buckshot to the face worked nicely. Left some nasty wounds, but hey, bastard's dead, I'm still walking. Maybe Daddy's given up on the hunt for wayward daughter and make her your slave thing. Sick bastard. Or someone's ripped his spine out. I'd send a fruit basket of blood oranges to whoever did that.
Still getting weird dreams. It's sick. People vanishing, doom, glooms and demons. And the goddamn headaches are a bitch. Drinking doesn't seem to help. Spice just warps my brain, but ah well. Got through worse than a couple 'visions'. Daddy said they were a gift, but he keeps mutated nexu around and has a creepy lab where he tortures people for fun and giggles, so who cares about what the hell the old sod knows. This woman...keeps showing up in my breams. Beautiful, flaming red hair, so...what's the word...radiant, full of power. And somehow when I look at her there's this connection...wait, this is starting to weird me out. Exit that train of thought, focus on the now. Not on cryptic messages the 'Force' is supposedly sending me.
Anyhow, got work to do. Cartel boss keeps staring at my arse, but he pays well. And the last goon who tried to touch got his wrist broken, so bonus. 'sides, maybe I can make more creds out of a round of pazaak at the Blooming Rose. Just need a little 'cheating'. Wait...why the feth is it getting all dark around me...”
