Bō (Cecily)

The Unenlightened

Description:

“Dressed in a fetching wrap of sailcloth and a string of clacking meditation beads, this lean and limber elven warrior moves with an acrobatic grace that suggests years spent in the ship’s rigging, bounding from yardarm to yardarm. Somewhat quiet and reserved, the young maid bears a few telltale traits of her people – the caramel skin, tinged with a faint green, the long and elaborately braided raven hair but none more obvious than her dedication to the austere arts, practicing her breathing and martial exercises on topdecks every morning.”

Raised in a small colonial town, Cecily was ostracized by her peers, on account of her elven heritage. Adopted by a Gong Zao master at a young age, she only began to learn the ways of enlightenment and excellence before her master abandoned her. With no desire to return to the humdrum life of her hometown, she set sail aboard a pirate ship, where she spends most of her time in the rigging, using her natural agility and discipline to scamper about the sails.

Named first mate aboard the Hammerhead by Captain Inio, Cecily is very loyal and compassionate, wishing to do right by her friends and loved ones.Torn between the worlds of her mentor – once the exile Zhitao – and her parents – Chen Liao-Xi and Xiao Wan-Su – the arrival of Bō’s former mentor, Chuanli, settled the issue.

At his beckoning, Cecily agreed to give up the piratical life and join him in his monastery – though her companions do not know this yet.
