• What is your full hero name (middle name included). Does it mean anything?
My name is Ali Trikru, it’s from a foreign language called Trisleng. In English, Trikru means people from Tree people. For hundreds of years, my family has been the guardians of the trees and forests. We use our power to protect the trees and their own magic. We also created our own language, Trisleng, so that the evil spirits and creatures aren’t able to understand us, and that also makes it harder for them to break our plans and defenses for the trees.
• Where were you born/ raised?
I was born in a mystical forest known as the home of legends and myths. It is full of mixed colorful flowers of all types. The name of this forest cannot be reveal to people who don’t belong to Trikru, in order to keep it save. In this forest, hundreds of warriors, commanders and so much more, all of they united for one purpose, the survival and protection of the nature.
• Were you popular as a child? Explain why or why not.
With the parents that I have, it’s difficult to not be the spotlight in some occasions. Some times even if I liked it or not, everyone knew who my parents were and that automatically made them know who I am.
• Describe five aspects of each of your parents.
My mother was known as the best healer in the forest. Her gift to help and save creatures from any kind has been in her blood for several generations. She mostly saved the warriors who’d get injured in battles, but she could also help the trees to recover from sickness and weakness as well. My mother loved to teach. She wanted to share her gift with others, so she’d give classes to kids, teenagers, even adults who were willing to learn and use those skills for the good. I was one of her students. I learned a lot from her and her powerfull gift.
My father was a feared but also very respected man. His older brother was known as the commander of death. He was cruel and wanted the trees of our forest just because of their power. After a bloody fight between him and my father, my uncle died, which led my father to be the new commander. But my father was the opposite of his brother, he vowed to protect the tress and the people who live in this forest. He’s one of the best commanders who have sitten on the throne.
• Do you have any siblings? What are their names, how many are there, and what are your views about them?
I am an only child. But when I was 5 years old my mother got pregnant with a boy. Unfortunately it was around the time when my father and uncle were so to say at « war » against one-another. So with all the nerves and fear of loosing her husband, my mom lost my little brother.
• Did you ever train with a master or at a school? If so, what for?
My father taught me how to fight and survive in various life-death situations. He basically tried to make me the best soldier of our forest.
While my father taught me how to fight, my mother taught me to know who to fight for and how to use my magic and powers. She showed me how to be good, how to help other, but also to know my limits. You can’t help people who don’t want to be helped for example. She also taught that even if you need to have a cold blood to be able to kill and survive the fights, love is not a weakness, and she made sure I’d never forget that.
• Do you have any hero experience? Describe
I’ve been in some battles with my father and his army to protect our trees and forests. To be honest I’d fight for my people anytime, but I prefer to practice my magic instead of being a warrior.
• How do you spend your spare time?
In my spare time I like to read, mostly about our forest, but also about the world in general. I like to know what I’m dealing with and books have taught me so much. Sometimes I talk to the trees as well, I can communicate with them, and when I do, I hear their stories and in change they tell me about my ancestors.
• How do animals act around you? (are they terrified, friendly, aggressive etc..)
It depends on the animals, but usually they are might be afraid like any other animal would, but since I’m basically a child of the nature, they get used o me pretty fast.
• Are you able to sleep during the day? Are you a light sleeper or a heavy sleeper? Do you drool, sleeptalk, snore, sleepwalk, have nightmares or dreams?
I’ve never been a person that takes naps, I usually only sleep during the night unless I’m sick or really tired. During the night I’m a heavy sleeper, but that’s mostly because when I sleep, I have visions. Visions about the future and I have to really concentrate and focus on them to understand the meanings of it, but they aren’t specific. My mother says that these visions are transmitted by some of the oldest trees in our forests, they have more power than the younger tress and they use it to warn us and help us in life as a way to thank us for protecting them.
• What skills do you have that help you survive in the wilderness?
Since I lived my whole life in forests, I can communicate with the nature around me, animals, plants… Plus I also know what foods save you from starving and which ones kill you.
