Zivah Heather Hullu
Zivah Heather Hullu (half-elf necromancer wizard, she/her) is the sort of person you notice immediately when she comes in the room. Her small body is hidden under layers of black lace, leather, tuille, and silk, dressing exclusively in black with a little purple and silver. She prefers strong, sensible boots as she spends a lot of time working. Her hair is huge – purple-black and piled up in a sort of beehive on top of her head, long onyx sticks topped with amethyst gems holding the hair up. Her skin is so pale it appears to almost shimmer, her bright purple eyes are surrounded in heavy black makeup.
She runs a funeral home and mortuary where she does legitimate work for the people of Bailymena, as well as provide some side-services of speaking with the dead (both legitimately and perhaps not-so-much).
Zivah was born and raised in the slums of Bailymena by her mother Heather Hullu and her older brother Narri. Her mother worked at the Macondo Laundry barely making ends meet, Narri learned quickly how to scam others, but Zivah couldn’t hold back her fascination with magic and death. Her constant explosions of accidental magic were becoming an issue, so she was sent away to school to try and get things under control.
After being asked to leave the two major wizard colleges in the realm, she found herself under the tutelage of two brilliant witches – Jamila and Kazyk-Van. They taught her necromancy, and when her beloved horse Patay died, it became her thesis project to reanimate him. The skeletal horse pulls her carriage, covered in black leather and gorgeous purple and black upholstery.
Her familiar Siyah is unique – Zivah has encouraged her to present as her natural form. This form is that of a black blob covered in eyes, feathers, tentacles and teeth. Her favourite snack is beetles.
Zivah thinks Siyah is adorable, and doesn’t understand why people find her familiar so odd.
