Bronze Owl is a rather pretty girl of Eastern descent, with light brown skin, shoulder-length blond hair, and dark brown eyes. She wears comfortable traveling clothes, as well as a well-made buff jacket. She carries a brown leather satchel, which holds a number of texts. Overall, she is quite cheerful, but will quickly become serious if the need arises.
Most notable, however, is her height; she stands at a mere six inches tall.
Bronze Owl was born in a small village in the Far East of no real note. Her parents were herbalists who gathered and worked with the bounty of materials that the trees had to offer, and sold them to passing merchants. Life, overall, wasn't too bad. Except when they came.
There was a band of Raksha who lived in a demense not too far from the village. The raksha themselves were quite small, but they would swarm through the town in the hundreds, ravaging as they went. They would even take people on occasion, tying them up while they slept and carrying them off. And that, most unfortunately, was what happened to Bronze Owl when she was naught but 12 years old.
The demense, a powerful wood-aspected one known as the Field of Little Dreams to most scholars, would dramatically reduce the size of anything which remained within it for long periods of time. Bronze Owl was held there for almost four years, a plaything for the fae who giggles and tittered as she grew smaller and smaller. On the forth anniversary of her capture, Bronze was praying to whatever god who would hear her to help her to escape. Much to her surprise, her prayer was answered as the sun filled her eyes and a booming voice told her that while she was small, she held great power within her. Brimming with Sol's power, she made her escape from the demense, taking with her an orichalcum dire lance which the fae had liberated long long ago, along with the hearthstone socketed within it.
Ever since her escape, Bronze Owl has sought a way to revert the changes done to her by the demense. This is her fourth year of searching, and nothing has revealed itself. She has, however, located the manse from which the hearthstone she took lies, and has attuned herself to it. The Dragon-Blooded who properly owns it hasn't noticed this…yet.

Level Two Orichalcum Dire Lance
This orichalcum dire lance, originally pilfered from a Solar tomb by the fae inhabitants of the Field of Little Dreams, was reduced about a foot and a half in length after spending years in the demense. The Zenith Bronze Owl acquired it as she fled the raksha of the demense, naming it Little Needle. Despite it's diminished size, it retains the stats of a normal dire lance.
Windblade-Class Personal Transport
Level Three Blue Jade Transportation Device
Among the stores of the Field of Lost Dreams was a blue jade Windblade, which was also snagged by Bronze Owl in her escape. It served her quite well in her escape and has been an incalculable help since.
