Phalon


--Log in or sign up to see linked image content-- Phalon
« Reply #40 on: Oct 11th, 2004, 12:19am »

Phalon is short, 5’2”, long light brown hair, sunstreaked with blonde, green eyes, wears a blue robe, belted at the waist. Attached to the belt are various vials and a pouch containing various medicinal herbs and such. Under the robe, she wears riding breeches and a simple white cotton tunic. Carries a sword strapped to her back..

She is not an Amazon, though most of the crowd she runs with is... Lost her one true love while in her youth to Roman soldiers. Has the ability to “see” things that may not necessarily be clear to her at the time she sees them. Has knowledge of the uses of herbs and plants in healing. Sometimes combines the two abilities, making her a mystical healer? A healing mystic? A quack? Good thing there were no such things as malpractice suits in ancient Greece, from where she comes.

Born in somewhere around 5-10 BC, (no birth certificates back then), but what's a few years, give or take, when you're in the thousands anyway? In present day ancient Greece, (an oxymoron?), she is about forty.

I'm thinking Phalon might have retained a bit of comprehension of english from having Yana in her body. English spoken with a Greek accent as opposed to Russian? Or English with a Russian accent spoken with a Greek accent. How's that work?

Anyway, Phalon speaks English now, (a tiny bit of it, anyway), but will probably misunderstand what the other characters may have to say to her. And what she says back is most likely not to be fully understood by anyone, because she'll probably speak it confusingly.

Kind of like her writer.

The language Phalon speaks is Greek, but not in character. Greek character, I mean, because she never speaks out of character. Hers, I mean.

Scrappy started it, way back in the beginning of the story by having Phalon speak a bit of Greek in one of her posts. So being kind of lazy, (read computer illiterate), whenever I want Phalon to utter something in Greek, I feed Scrappy the line, and she translates it for me, usually giving me a couple of options, and I pick the one that looks the prettiest. (rolls eyes).

Oh, btw, Scrappy. I did that translation thing in a scrolls post. Lost the website address that you so kindly gave me, like what, 22 times. Found a Scottish Gaelic dictionary online and used that - one problem; it was Scottish Gaelic to English and not English to Scottish Gaelic, so it took me forever. Ended up with something completely different than I wanted to write, just cuz I got tired of looking for the words I wanted to write.

Is this how you do the Greek? Let me know, and I'll do it myself next time. Wouldn't want you to go to all that trouble. I figured you just feed my lines into some website and it spat out the translation.

Oh, and [sign in to see URL] not speaking of Phalon's weird language in my last post are you? "Ew Smphf umphf uh Bhwahkuh". That would be English. Spelled phonetically as I placed my hand over my mouth to simulate the Phalon/Yana Guru lip-lock thing the characters had going, and uttered "You Son of a Bacchae."
