Current Description:

(Date Unknown)
Lost in her own thoughts, Tamar idly brushes a leaf out of her hair.
A little remote, she must spend most of her days curled among the
tree branches & roots in her hometown of Loth-Llorien. Guarded
with her affections, she is a valuable ally once you have her trust.
Ask her what she is contemplating, and she might say "Emerson, who
said that 'self-trust is the essence of heroism'."
Tamar is bathed in the essence of charisma.
Tamar is in perfect health.

Character History:

(Text from the TFC Website)
Tamar, an elven cleric, was born in another age in the well-run town of Loth-Llorien. She spent most of her childhood days in contemplation, curled among the tree branches and roots of her hometown. An early worshipper of Lorna, she came to feel a need to be more self-reliant. She put her trust firmly in herself and struck out on her own. As the years went by she became more and more introspective, and was lost for a brief time to the world.

Upon her return she was struck by the knowledge that she could more fully use her skills as a cleric if she had the strength of an immortal to draw upon. She sought out Rhina, who had always impressed her as being a subtle influence upon the world.

Since that time she has concentrated her efforts on growing stronger and wiser, and has come into her own power. Steadfast, aloof, and garbed in well-maintained armor, she has been mistaken for a warrior on more than one occasion. Although she goes about reaching her goals with single-minded purpose, she is not without compassion.

Guarded with her affections, she is a valuable ally once you have earned her trust.

She encourages her followers, the Dreamwalkers, to be an example of good in the world, and to look for the good within others. In dreams and in reality, perception is everything. All things are possible. All things have been. All things will be.

Immortality Petition:

[ 18] Tamar: help rules 10(g)
Wed Sep 29 11:56:38 1999
To: immortal
... aka "dropping a hint", or, my petition for immortality

I would love to become an immortal on TFC, and hope you will make my
petition a successful one. I am a level 30 cleric, and currently have the most
mob masters of any single classer. (Ok, at least I think this is the case).
If I am chosen as an Ambassador, I promise to:
Oh wait, I'm not being elected. (Or am I?)
At any rate, I would love to help others on the MUD in a new
capacity as an immortal :)

Tamar, permanent resident of the Loth Llorien Inn


Trivia:

  • Tamar is specifically mentioned in the second temple of Rhina, A Stand of Hazelnuts.
  • Tamar was specifically mentioned in the mortal description of Whitehawk as the 'The Goddess of Gentleness.'
