As a child, it was clear that the emotion genes had skipped Cadena and all been dropped on Sienna. Her personality was the polar opposite of her older sister; bubbly, enthusiastic, eager-to-please, and very emotionally expressive.
She looked up to her big sister and wanted to please her, but the feeling was not reciprocated and she ended up irritating her sister more than anything else, sometimes leading to confrontation.
Sienna didn't really understand the reaction she was getting from Cadena, not able to fathom that her desire to please her older sister was itself at least part of the issue. And so, she determined that the best way to gain her respect would be to learn how to heal the way their mother could.
She followed in her mother's footsteps, learning how to use her innate abilities to heal: reweaving life, sealing wounds, regenerating tissue, and reinvigorating the body.
However, she was also taught how to use these same abilities to cause harm, performing the same actions in reverse to shred life, tear open wounds, decay tissue, and sap the body of vitality.
When she was twelve, one of the clan's hunters, a good friend of her mother, taught Sienna how to track creatures or people. She practiced this rudimentary knowledge by following Cadena when she left the village to "experiment." Partly because she wanted to practice, but more because she wanted to watch over her sister and make sure nothing happened to her. Even with Sienna's modest tracking abilities, following her older sister wasn't very hard. Cadena isn't known for subtlety.
On one of these expeditions, Sienna realized with horror that Cadena had inflicted more on herself than she could handle and sensed that her life-force was starting to fade. Scrambling down the slope, Sienna knelt by her sister and started trying to heal the injury. Between her efforts and Cadena's own abilities, they were able to make it back to their home where their mother healed Cadena's injuries.
Though Sienna didn't realize this at first, that actually did gain her Cadena's respect, and their relationship started to heal.
From then on, she would often go on solo expeditions into the wilds, learning to survive on her own. During these trips, she would often encounter injured animals, providing a chance to practice her abilities.
When was 14 and Cadena was 18, they started going on "expeditions" together. On one of these trips, Sienna came up with a story of using her abilities to subdue a rancor and convinced Cadena to go along with it. No one believed them, but neither was anyone sure whether she was lying, joking, or hallucinating.
She was, of course, making up the story whole cloth, but she enjoyed the consternation it caused. Though Cadena was a willing accomplice, she was somewhat skeptical of Sienna's determination to keep the veracity of the story unresolved.
When she turned sixteen, her mother began teaching her the basics of alchemy.
Now at the age of eighteen, she is eager to depart on her first offworld mission.
Sienna has a bubbly, enthusiastic personality, and is easily swept up in emotion whether positive or negative. She cares about those around her, and does her best to keep them intact.
She prefers not to use physical tools or implements, using her powers as a weapon when she needs to defend herself.
Sienna looks after her big sister, even if Cadena doesn't really want it most of the time. This relationship has caused Sienna to pursue alchemical and Allyan magical methods of enhancing her sister's abilities.
Sienna has been trained from a young age as a healer, and is eager to hone her abilities, proving her usefulness and helping those around her. She also desires to grow her alchemical abilities.
Morality: 50 (+10XP)
Enthusiasm/Recklessness: Sienna is eager to jump into any situation with both feet, but she often forgets to look first. She is very passionate and can easily become swept up in the moment, losing perspective on the bigger picture and taking on excessive risk.
Hair: White, in a long braid
Notable features: Black facial tattoos
Deep red tunic over her ultramesh underlay. She rarely pulls up her hood, preferring to keep her head exposed and field of vision unobstructed.
She carries her med kit and alchemical concoctions in a rancor-leather satchel.
Although her protective amulet matches the one she gave her sister in almost every way, it is unnaturally heavy. She wears it on a lanyard around her neck, over her clothing.
