PostSubject: In the eye of the beholder - Gift Art of Embala   Wed May 30, 2018 11:03 pm

Back on the Old Scroll the question of my "self-elf" came up ... and I decided to use a character I've made up at as a preteen. Her thread from the Doller's Group is still there.

Humanoid starspip captain (and more) from the Startrek Universe ... stranded with the High Ones on Abode ... has VERY minor shapeshifting abilities ... not aging ... going on Abode for 20.000 years by many names ... meeting and living with all the tribes.
Natural leader, diplomate and warrior - just as needed, beautiful, wise and strong - in short: a Mary-Sue (forgive me ... I was eleven/twelf when I basically created her).

Given a visible face for the first time by Nightsea



Thank you so much for your efforts and kindness!

She can count as a beauty both in human and elfin eyes: Tall like a High One (or slightly shorter), graceful human proportions and features, still a "FiveFinger", but has grown elf ears. Teenage looking - oval face, fair skin, blue eyes and light-blue silvery hair, about hiplong, very straight with bangs (Vulcan style). She prefers darker greens, blues and silver clothings. Got a liking for turquoise and blues when it comes to more elegant or playful outfits.

There's a "merform" of her with slightly variant look - wavy hair and a mertail. Turquoise-green is her leading color.

She always wears a large gemstone, normally as a bracelet on her left arm. It can appear in all kind of jewelry, tho - necklace, ring, diadem, brooch and what else you can imagine. The stone looks greenish/blue mostly, but is shimmering in all rainbow colors.

Strapped to her left leg (normally) she is carrying an ornate dagger, a gift from her friend TrollHammer.

On her journeys Embala met the lonely Preserver Dragonfly. This bug decided to accompany her (most of the time) and to take care of her gemstones - thus changed its name into Gemkeeper.

Over the years I got gift art from EQ friends. sunny Based on vage descriptions there were lots of dollz, some original art and more. I love to see my girl through their eyes and adore their variant takes on Embala.


Shadowpath (who went under the name Vojira Hug at some point) had a special gift for me ...



Embala's name written in the Timeless lettering she made up!


This thread is to gather the gifts and to honor the picture artists.

Icemoon I love you was just fourteen years old when we met on the Old Scroll. I had the joy to watch her art grow over one or two years and I think the developement was amazing!




Seeing Embala together with Strongbow was a bonus Very Happy



... and I couldn't help to play with it. Embala got a growth spurt! ^^

Jeedai literally made Embala fit into the StarTrek universe. Wink An he brought Dragonfly to life in his characteristic Preserver art style.

Cleopatra's take on Embala is charming as it was unexpected!

When I had a rough time on the Scroll and in real life Kindredsoul surprised me with this wonderful heartfelt and comforting gift!




I love that you made her fit into your old forum tribe, Kin!

Back on the old Scroll Tamarian Changestone (Tah-Marien on Deviant Art) promisied try her hand on Merbala. Then we lost contact ... until last year I got a message by katcombs that she found Tamarien ... and the drawings of Merbala!







Such joy!

Prayer, who I love to call Fairyring, sparked this thread by doing new awesome artwork of Embala and Merbala. Soft and tender. Thank you so much!

Sending  Embala Sending

She's a lonely wanderer,
Crossing Abode -
Two moons shining on her
Ever youthful face, framed by snow-white hair;
Her deep, blues eyes saw love and despair.

Through the centuries she saw it all:
Saw elves, trolls, men, big and small;
Every minute many war-fools fall,
Yet she survives -
WISDOM is her CALL.

She seeked solitude from the start,
Her choices - forms of Art!
For she is no fool
And plays by the rule
Of wise moves.

She's a wanderer
Knowing near and far -
Her experience from the stars
She keeps quietly,
Quietly in her heart.

Wow Em, this is so wonderful. I really love seeing all these old pictures of your elf self, the gifts you've received and I am so glad you're sharing them. I always thought your avatar looked somewhat Vulcan in appearance and now I understand why. She fits in well with the Star Trek back ground. I wish I had a gift to give. Maybe someday I will. I love you

Yes, original Embala was raised by Vulcans tho she's a humanoid alien of unknown origin. ^^
I'm glad you enjoy the collection, Evie! sunny Please take the time to follow the links to the artists' threads and other homes. This place is to honor the artists as much as featuring Embala.

Thank you for the joy, Fairyring. I love you And for the well deserved praise for the artists!

Good memories were one reasion to bring this artwork back, G0lden. This nostalgia was heavily sparked by Prayer's inspiring activities and awesome art. And then I wanted to gather new and old together. I love you


I've filled some more posts. sunny Still way to go!

I'm in love with all the contributions of EMBALA/MERBALA artworks and crafts! What a gorgeous collection. <3

All of them are authentic and true because she is a SHAPESHIFTER! Well, that's some beautiful shapeshifing. Aesthetics GOALS! Smile

You describe Embala as a natural leader. I want to envision: what kind of leader? Which tribe? Human leader (wise queen)? Wavedancer leader as Merbala (I can think of that!)...what is most likely in the World of Two Moons? :-)
I know you also described her as a wanderer but maybe...in all those centuries? I wonder...Smile

That's the problem with Embala - she STILL is a starship captain from the StarTrek universe. She got caught in this accident by bad luck - crash landing with the Coneheads in the far past. And she is aware of it. She is a child of the future and aware of it. She hopes to return into her own time ... into the very thread of time she has left. She knows better than changing history by too much interferance.

On Abode Embala will not lead. She'll do her best to blend in as much as possible.
A wanderer. A loner. A visitor to tribes when ways and fates cross, maybe a messenger at times. In case she stays with a tribe for longer Embala will adept. Most likely she'll serve as a hunter or scout,  a protector or councellor. She can be a tanner, a gatherer and grower, a weapon maker or storyteller with the same right.

I did not really imagine Embala as a true shape shifter ... just minor changes like pointed ears were intended. On the other hand - I start to like this idea! And it would make the fanart real. ^^
Embala can adept to all tribes and all tasks ... why not adept to magic as well? The Palace could have changed her abilities! Still a shapeshifter with mimor skills - rather growing into another look than switching. Like

I just realize ... best you envision her as a "task shifter", too. Embala is curious, manually skilled and able to learn easily. And she hardly forgets anything. She can become what she aims for - besides a leader. Not on Abode.

At one point I had fun creating "Embala of All Tribes" - I hope you can see the thumbnails at least.
And here is the one and only story I've written about Embala.

Thanks again for your enthusiasm and dear words, Fairyring!
