21 Profile

Ephra's picture







Introductions are probably unnecessary for someone like 21, a figure of the common folklore.

The Mother of the forest, the first female to walk among the stags, and a gentle guardian of the children and strangers to this world.

Her demeanour is generally friendly and accommodating; endlessly patient and boundlessly loving, tempered with a stubborn inquisitiveness and a certain degree of pride. A living archetype... mostly.

She is inexplicably distant at times and tends not to confide in others. Neither will she speak too much at once, especially about herself.

Strangest of all, she firmly refuses to take a lover or bear fawns of her own...

The childless Mother. A funny old spinster, 21.












Name •
She carries at least two: "21" being a colloquial transliteration of her pictogram, and her true name Ephra.



Age •
(Jan. 21, 2006)
At 4 real years of age, she may well be the oldest deer around. Besides the twin gods, anyway.



Appearance •
A regular white-tailed deer, brown and long-limbed.


Voice •
I think something like Tilda Swinton, who narrates throughout this music playlist. In text, a dull green.


Old Haunts •
A few of her favourite places.


More •
I’m not good at writing so if there's more you'd like to know, feel free to go a little deeper into the woods and leave a message for 21 herself.

Oh that's really kind of you. Laughing out loud Thank you so much! It looks like she's sleepy and trying/pretending to stay alert, which suits us pretty well hehe.

Echria met 21 yesterday, among a group of other deer. : D I saw her picto and was like 'oh, it's 21, let's go and say hello : DD'. Ria loved to jump around and play with you guys. n__n

Both of you are sweethearts..

Laughing out loud Both of you are sweethearts.. Munkel, your page coding is so beautiful and what a compliment to hear your approval! You have such a refined and elegant sense of aesthetics, it doesn't come quite so easily for me. And Echria, I really enjoy your little screenshot diaries. You know, there are a lot of people here who are nostalgic for the 'old forest' they remember, full of fun and exploration... but it never left, and I'm glad you're able to find it so easily. Ooh

Well, yeah, I just love to

Well, yeah, I just love to take screenshots. :') Thank you. n__n

I was so sad it wasn't one of my more expressive deer, since if he was he would've been a little more fun xD So I gave up and played him a little OOC, since he'd never really dance or laugh. LOL~! &hearts

I love the layout of this biography so much &hearts

Ahaa I keep running into you

Ahaa I keep running into you without realizing it's you! Don't worry, as much as my deer's a spaz in the game I really do have an appreciation for quiet-time with a friendly companion. He's a great sitting buddy in-character and a great dance-buddy out of character. Laughing out loud

And thank you! I'm actually starting to work on a new look for this biography, hopefully it will also be to your liking =)

ROFL that's true! It's a lot

ROFL that's true! It's a lot easier when you have only one deer like you, but I just can't resist having all kinds of different individuals. It gets busy, though. /fail
LOL that's a great way to put it~! xD

Every single thing you do is beautiful and just beyond gorgeous. I'm 110% certain I'm going to adore it &hearts

Your second link wasn't working for me, so I'm guessing you mean Mayu? I'd love for 21 to adopt her, and I'm sure 21 would be delighted too. Ooh Her pictogram is really cute too, hehe.

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! Laughing out loud

Your art is stunning o.o

Your art is stunning o.o <3 I wonder though... what's the story behind those "theater"-pictures?
and... *feelsstupidforasking* do you ever take requests..?
Ephra's picture

Oh dear! Those must look a

Oh dear! Those must look a little disturbing out of context. The theatre series was just representing my deer's role in a violent story-line that once took place- all the situations she found herself in were hypothetical, the whole thing basically an act that only affected her within the world of that performance, on the stage so to say. That's how roleplaying is for me, pretty much.
The lady is just how I picture her to look if she were a person. Smiling

Sometimes I do requests but my favourite is to surprise people with a drawing! Or if you're interested, I have taken commissions before.

Ahh, I see^^ I find that

Ahh, I see^^ I find that interesting, actually. If you have a story or anything about this written down, I'd love to read it <3

Nice to see you all. Laughing out loud School has been so, so busy! That's why I haven't been able to visit in a long while. Don't worry if I disappear again, I'll be back eventually. Sticking out tongue

I have never been so cheerfully greeted by a group. It really cheered me up.

That's reassuring to hear.

That's reassuring to hear. Laughing out loud I'm actually surprised at the comments haha, I haven't been around much and I figured this newest generation of players would have no memory of me at all. Fauno and Konoha, I'm glad you like my character and I hope I'll be able to meet you both in the forest some time soon. Ooh
Eyestrain, I remember meeting you too. I was actually worried I was being a bother since your deer's temperament is so calm while mine's always dancing around like a loony when she's got a group to entertain. Thank you for the well-wishes, and congratulations on getting your piece into the calendar! This year's has had the best quality art I've seen yet. Laughing out loud
Serenai's picture

I believe you're viewed,

I believe you're viewed, perhaps reverently, as an elder. For that reason, even if you for whatever reason left entirely, I'm almost certain even the newest and most inexperienced of players would find their way to your corners eventually. c:

Looking through them feels like stepping into a different world running on different time.

Hello. :3 I am not sure if

Hello. :3

I am not sure if you are the one. But my Zanny randomly sat by a sleeping deer a while ago. I am thinking you may have been that deer because your pictogram is familiar but I am not completely sure.
You also came up to him today and sat and played with us and some fawns. I wanted to say thank you for that. : )
Kaoori's picture

always nice to see you again.

always nice to see you again. Thanks for sitting with me earlier. Smiling
Ephra's picture

Kaoori, thanks for having me.

Kaoori, thanks for having me. Smiling It's been a nice lazy afternoon for me and it was great to have some company to share it with.

PrairieWolf, I can't say whether or not I was the sleeping deer, but thank you for playing with us today. Laughing out loud That group of fawns seemed to come out of nowhere but what an adorable bunch they were.

010, that is rather a cryptic message, hmm. I think you were one of the deer who sat in the circle with me and a few others today, near the big oak? Thanks for joining us, if that was you. You're welcome to come sit with me any time. Smiling
