Alona is a quiet individual that keeps to herself at all times. She is very internal with her emotions, feelings and thoughts. She rarely speaks to anyone, aside from her shopping needs in the village. She has a very kind and giving heart, however it has been sealed deep within her own soul after the disappearance of her father and endless hardships she has endured up unto this point in her life.
Even though she has been denied the gift of vision. She has learned to see the beauty, heart and soul of things around her through the sound, smell and texture it has taken its form in. Alona sees the beauty that any one thing or creature was created with, not its appearance or function. She reads the soul.
Alona was born with a visual impairment, blindness, and since she was a child she has not seen the beautiful world like her parents had. A few years after she was born, around the ages of five and six her mother vanished with out any evidence to explain why or who might have taken, killed or magicked away such a wonderful wife and mother. Alona was left alone with her grieving father who took the loss of her mother harder than most would have. About two years after the disappearance of Alona's mother, her father also disappeared with out a single word or warning to those around him. Alona was ten years of age when she was left to fend for herself in the forest dwelling that her and her family had occupied.
It took Alona weeks to make it out of her home and to the stream near by by memory and feel, smell and temperature. She began having to teach herself how to maneuver and function with out the help of her father, mother or visitors.
The family had a few friends that dropped by on and off, and a month after the disappearance of her father one of their mutual friends arrived to find Alona by herself, naked, soiled and curled up in front of a nearly dead hearth. When said family friend discovered her, he of course tried to take her into his own home and provide for her. Alona refused the kindness and asked for her to remain within her families home. After that day she became partially dependent on the family friend that had discovered and saved her that day, however he was aging and ailing fast and soon faded away leaving Alona on her own again at the age of fifteen years old.
Over the course of a year, before she was eligible for the Right of Passage into adulthood and to be one of the accepted of the community, she had to teach herself how to make it to and from her village and home. Some treks left her stranded with out food, water and shelter for days or even weeks. If she was blessed a hunter would come across her and take pity on the blind girl.
When the year came that she was completely independent of those in the village and of the year she might try for adulthood, it was not to be. The right to pass into adulthood is finding ones spirit. Connecting with a single spirit of the world and forming an everlasting bond until the day you passed on and your spirit carried your soul into the heavens. Alona was not compatible with a spirit that fateful day, she was denied the partnership that the rest of her peers were given.
After she was denied companionship of a spirit Alona became more distant and outcast from those she had known or had shown the blind girl compassion. She was more of a liability for them to take into their own lives and she seemed capable of tending to her own needs, so no one took the time to love a lost soul.
