Heroes from all over the ANCIENT Mediterranean (Southern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa) are all gathered in Egypt when a tragedy occurs, the Pharaoh fallen ill to an unknown seemingly fatal disease due to a strange encounter from displeased mage, for which there is no known cure. The Pharaoh's son, taking his position as a temporary ruler, sends a party of distinct team members are pulled together to look for the Garden of the Hesperides, where all sorts of different medicinal and botanical rarities and creatures exist, including the Tears of Ra, mythological honey bees that produce a honey that can cure any illness. The Pharaoh's son is also holding a ransom over the head of the seemingly evil mage. Each member of the party has their own reason for going to this place, and will develop strong bonds with each other along the way (I'm a slut for found family). The setting is the Pre-Classical Era Mediterranean/Mediterranean Antiquity. Only minor angst plz

@Serpentess health_and_safety languageChaos Shall Reign

(Hello, here’s Ehlaea again)

Name: Ehlaea

Age: 21 years

Gender: Female

Sexuality: Straight

Shipping?: Sure

Ethnicity: Caucasian (Greek)

Personality: Quiet, shamanic. Prefers nature over civilization. Loves birds, of any kind. She is sweet and polite, but when provoked can be vindictive and cruel. Doesn’t mind that she became an outcast because of her ‘Moon-Sight’ abilities (divination and protection spells mostly, though she does have a few offensive spells that she typically avoids. Works best at night). Lives in a small cave on Mount Parnitha (north of Athens).

Reason for joining the expedition: She has wanted to visit the Garden of Hesperides since she was a child. She had always been fascinated by the tales of the powerful and mystical herbs there, and it inspired her decision to become a herbalist.

Appearance: 5’3”, left eye is blind (and the source of her divining abilities), wild shoulder-length brown hair, blue eyes, broad shoulders/hips, curvaceous hourglass figure. Has green painted markings on her face.

(Pic from Heroforge. She’s holding a mortar and pestle)

Style: Simplistic. She usually wears a simple chiton, sometimes with a himation (both are ancient greek clothing), and sandals. She also has a gold earring in her right ear.

Profession: Oracle/Sorceress, Herbalist

(Her eye and ‘Moon-Sight’ abilities are themed off of the Eye of Horus)


Name: Efraim Marion
Age: 18
Gender: would probably just describe themself as a youth. amab
Sexuality: doesn’t know, doesn’t care
Shipping?: maybe?
Ethnicity: Israelite
Personality: very quiet, to the point of being selectively mute. Has a rather soft, solemn disposition, and can stay still for a long period of time. Although they seem like a sad statue on the outside, Efraim is a very deep thinker and feeler. It’s just difficult for them to express themselves externally, and the only way they can seem to do this is through art and painting. They also consider themselves a coward, and they often avoid conflict when they can. Their father used to always advise them to pray to God for courage, and Efraim has taken that to heart.
Reason for joining the expedition: some context. Efraim comes from a long line of artisans and painters that decorated Solomon’s Temple and other places of worship in Israel. Even after the Temple was destroyed, their family still tried to keep their practice alive. At the time of the Neo-Babylonian Empire’s conquest of Judah, Efraim’s family was afraid Israel would be conquered as well, and relocated to Egypt. Although they still worshipped the Judean God and never worshipped the Egyptian ones, the family eventually found themselves serving in the royal palace. After Efraim was born, they eventually ended up an orphan and was named the royal painter, depicting the deeds of the Egyptian Pharaoh, or even scenes of everyday life on the palace walls. Later, the volunteered to be apart of the journey to the Garden of the Hesperides, mostly because they had become tired of their life in Egypt and wanted a vacation, preferably to somewhere where no one would try to convert them or bully them for their faith, but also to see and do new things, and find inspiration for their art.
Appearance: stands at about 5’6, and has a thin, lanky body

Style: long tunics that reach down to their calves, with sleeves that go a little past their elbows. They also wear a versatile over garment that can function as an overcoat, a head covering, etc. Additionally, sandals and one earring piercing their right ear.
Profession: the Artist, or the royal painter
