Liyara appears to be a young woman in her early twenties, and would appear human if not her gold horns and the vertical pupils in her vivid yellow-green eyes. Her hair is a deep red, and she will invariably be wearing something with a bit of flow and flare to it, and that teases a lot of leg. She has observed that humans like that sort of thing.
The Rhythm Blade is a defensive weapon with an edged magical guard that wraps around the hand to use for parrying. In Liyara’s hands, it’s almost as good as a shield would be in a fighter’s.
Liyara’s Rhythm Blade is an incendiary dagger that grants her additional power when using it to channel, everyone guessed it, fire magic.
Liyara wears a specially woven suit of “cloth” armor that has similar properties to chain mail, and has the added benefit of being able to appear like any set of clothing she wants, be it a ball gown or a suit of platemail. It doesn't provide more or less protection, however.
What good is a skill to take advantage of dim light if you’re not always in dim-light? This artifact turns all light within ten feet of Liyara into dim light, even if it was bright or dark before. The artifact automatically activates if Liyara enters combat, but she can also manually turn it on if she wants, as either a light source or a dramatic effect.
All abilities that detect creature type will detect Liyara as a Dragonborn, and all abilities that detect alignment will detect her as Lawful Good.
There’s racism, and then there’s D&D racism. While Liyara understands that all types of intelligent life have at least some value, she feels non-draconic creatures are just… Lesser beings. Now, if she were a Great Wyrm Ancient Dragon, perhaps that would actually be true; but she’s not. And so she has an unjustified hidden disdain for those around her, even if she does so enjoy their drama.
The flip side of this is that she has sympathy for Dragons, Drakes, Dragonborn, and other Dragon-Adjacent races like Kobolds.
If Pride goeth before the fall, Liyara has a LONG way to fall. Believing she's better than others of her kind is not unusual, but Liyara knows that she’s better, and that just reinforces the sense that she is the center of the world.
She also takes great pride in having crafted the perfect blend of draconic beauty and what humans consider attractive. She regards her form as particularly beautiful.
While Liyara may be brilliant, she is ultimately born of dragons, and it is very difficult for her to keep from hoarding wealth. Often times she will snatch up something valuable or shiny from its resting place and not even realize it until she feels it in her pocket later.
Even though she is aware enough to try and conceal this urge, Liyara does not always succeed, and so she has had to fabricate a dozen or so reasons why valuable artifacts would be safer in the hands of the Tolarian Academy.
"I always tell the truth!"
"Even when you're lying?"
"Oh, especially then."
Liyara's mother was a dragon, and as a result, Liyara has a very impressive control over fire in all its forms. She is a talented Elementalist, a rare fork of what most people would call a sorcerer, who deals only in a single element. Because she deals largely with the magic inherent to her bloodline, Liyara's magic can be practiced outside the weave without difficulty. She loves observing humans and their dramatic lives, but doesn't much care for them on a personal level, usually. They're distasteful, and give stupid names to things. Apparently when they're in charge, they name their planet 'Earth'. How creative.
