Gale is overall relatively friendly and open-minded, but has the habit of not taking things in her daily life seriously enough. She isn’t fond of arguing or fighting friends and allies, and would rather let them assume that they are right about whatever the issue is, than waste energy on defending her case.
She has great trust in authorities, and will take orders from anyone above her position without asking questions, but is also able to take responsibility and be a guide, when it’s necessary.
She wants people to look up to her and see her as a calm and confident person, and she distances herself from her own negative emotions and ignores them for as long as possible. If you don't aknowledge it, it doesn't exist is her unsaid motto. In the rare occasions if she is pressured and pushed for long enough to show feelings like anger or sorrow, it's intense and in an emotional explosion, caused by years of repression.
She prefers listening to and helping others rather than dealing with her own problems. To Gale, the most important things in life is to be able to smile even when things are tough and to help those in need, and while she loves to help and aid whenever she is able to, she is also terrible at anything involving emotions and feelings. She can often appear unsympathetic due to the clinical nature of her advice and solutions.
She’s also very fond of using humor as a coping method, and since the war started, her jokes have gotten quite dark and macabre.
Likes: luxurious treats, silence, books, independence, forests, birds, naps, new knowledge, jesting and jokes, any festive occasion with good wine involved.
Dislikes: romance, cheap replicas, children, apples, invasiveness, restricting clothes, strong odors.
Gale’s father was a successful merchant from Miras, who, on one of his many trading trips accidentally fell in love with her mother, a shaman from Estraude. After years of trying to woo her, she finally gave in to his charms and agreed to marry him and go with him back to Miras, making the city her new home. From the start of their marriage they had agreed to not have children, due to the age and race differences, but eventually Gale was born. Even though her existence was far from planned, her parents still loved and adored her and put their best into giving her a safe and stable childhood. Gale was an energetic and healthy child, who had the habit of scaring her parents half to death with wild stunts and dangerous games she would create at times, dragging the neighbor kids into this, as she was in lack of siblings to torment.
Worried for the future of her daughter, Gale’s mother started putting her under strict supervision from the start of her teenage years, taking the wooden swords and mud out of Gale’s hands to replace them with books and the vast knowledge only a well-paid tutor could give her. As a repressed rebel who also wanted to show her parents that she appreciated all the love and wealth they had raised her with, Gale started to rebel in her own little ways. She studied diligently and obeyed her teachers and mother, but with sassy remarks and overly creative solutions to simple tasks. She was as polite and decently dressed as was required of her, but accompanied by odd and flashy haircuts. She would work hard to become a well-educated healer, but only to join the royal military as soon as she graduated.
The start of Gale’s medical career was rather stress-free. Mostly peaceful years meant that the assigned tasks wasn’t something she wasn’t prepared for, and it left enough energy to study medical science on the side, giving her a broader perspective on modern medicine and practices. Having no interest in romantic relationships or the idea of someday getting a family of her own, Gale decided to devote herself to the military and her work there.
Wartimes came to Alva though, and Gale got to experience having difficulties for the first time in her life, having had no way of preparing herself mentally for the sights she was soon to see, she would stumble and tumble around, learning the hard way that real war is nothing like the pretend-ones back at the academy. While the first attack on Miras was terrifying and left her with a feeling of not having served her country the best she could, it also made her determined to fix her mistakes and work much harder and more efficiently. From then on she would make sure to take any given opportunity to get out into the field, aiding civilians and soldiers alike.
-The white hair part is bleached and kept like that on purpose, though glamours is used at formal occasions to give her hairdo a more natural look.
-Her parents support her financially, paying for her rent and necessaries, even though she is perfectly capable of supporting herself.
-She became a cleric very recently and still has a lot to learn about healing and expanding the capacity of her powers.
-Her current sparse free time is used to meditate and recover as much energy as possible, so she can get back to work.
