(On the subject of those families, nomadic is the norm, so I wouldn't imagine her to have known any other life to compare it to, or think of it in terms of "not having many friends" - she has her band/tribe, and the People, living the life they were made for off of what nature provides. On that note, I'd also add that all of them are likely to have been hunters at some point )
On a side note i got the idea for the character wandering around Voltrex and finding the little wild elf ruins... I haven't seen wild elves anywhere else so logically i decided she was from there lol
The thing about Wild Elves buying supplies from villages that they couldn't craft makes me pause a little. I could see that from some groups, definitely, but the Wild Elves are noted for being fierce independents and survivalists. If they cannot provide it, do they need it? (Including stuff like silks and forged items!) So that doesn't fit. At the same time, I can see how you want this villager reaction and witch prejudice from outsiders fit in there, which isn't a problem at all by itself!So, one way I can think of to cover both is to say, be camped nearby villages that you sometimes have to move quickly from to avoid discovery (but naturally they are swift, silent, and not found when they don't want to be - or at least feel that that is true), until perhaps there was one day an encounter, say while hunting or something - maybe with a child that it turns out was wide-eyed at someone shifting forms, and their version of the story roused some torches. Not a universal reaction, of course - the Queen was a mage and Lucindite, who are allied to Katians - but some misunderstanding or perversion of events that riled base fears.
There's not really a lot on her place or views as a druid (beyond herbalism and such), so just keep in mind there's of course more to it than liking bears or any other animals. There's a profound connection with the world here, whether innate or cultivated, and she herself will be one of many leaves on one of many branches of the tree that makes up the druid hierarchy. Being Wild Elven though, it's not like this way of viewing the world would be new to her, so there's that - though there may be minor conflicts between the order and the tribe and which takes precedence
Deity Associated With: Does your character favor one god over all the others? A character is not required to associate with one particular deity. In fact most people on Layonara pay homage to multiple gods, depending on the situation. There is ample evidence for the existence of gods so although atheism is virtually impossible, apathy to the gods is possible.
The belief system of spiritual harmony and direct connection with nature predisposes druids to be less attached to the gods than many other Layonarans. You will of course find druids among the ranks of worshipers of Katia, Aeridin, Shindaleria, Ilsare and many others. But a druid is less likely to be a fervent follower than a cleric whose powers derive directly from the blessings of her or his deity. Katia, for example, personifies nature, and as such can give a druid a very powerful and tangible point of will focus. But a druid's strength is not gifted from Katia herself. A common druidic philosophy is that the gods themselves are a product of a confluence of natural forces. They evolved. It is considered blasphemous by many and in some places gives druids a hated outsider status, but to them the gods themselves emerged from nature and are in many ways subordinated to its fundamental flows and connections. Thus, druids are not always worshipers of Katia as is commonly thought, and even those that are may view worship in an entirely different light than others.
