Personality: Serious, unimpressed, eternally grouchy. She dislikes any stag by default - you have to be pretty impressive and understanding if you want her to even give you the time of day. She’s quick to accept a challenge from a stag, and she won’t pull punches in a fight. Towards does, she is much more tolerant, even kind. She believes strongly in equality for does, and will fight for any doe who wants independence.

History: An unremarkable fawn, É was born to a flighty Windborne mother after she’d escaped the mainlands and sought sanctuary back on the Windborne island. There were plenty of rumours and gossip about who É’s father was, but they have never be confirmed.
Growing up, it was clear É was never going to be a pretty doe, and she was rather quiet. She rarely joined in any Fawnling games, and quite often they used to laugh and call her names. She had no apparent affinity for wind magic, a fact that only fueled the rumours of her heritage.
As she reached maturity and it was clear that she was going to grow a horn, the teasing only increased. By now, É was pretty good at ignoring taunts, and she simply accepted the first stag that claimed her for her first two rut seasons, since it was unlikely many stags would offer to take the ugly doe in.
Whispers about a rebel faction of does were starting to circulate in Étaín’s second adult year, and it was the first gossip that really interested the doe. She kept her ears open, and when her second foal was mature enough to cope on its own, she left the herd to join the splinter does on Point Danger.
This was when É really came out of her shell. She had an affinity for fighting that few does possessed, and she soon rose high in the ranks of the doe splinter herd as a protector and guardian.
Now É is in her prime, and the antler that caused her so much grief in her younger years is her greatest asset. She can box as well as any stag, and she’s even as large as most Windborne stags. She packs a punch, and when boxing just won’t deter a stag, she resorts to the use of her dangerous tine.

Shut up Tor.
