had probably been considered beautiful once, before whatever had happened to her occurred; her appearance looked to have once been fair and strong, if perhaps a little taller than some might have preferred. Her hair is slightly wavy, full and long, hanging down to the middle of her shoulderblades, and of a deep blood red so dark it seems almost black. Her skin is a dark brownish red in shade, visibly scarred and burnt over all, riddled with breaks and cracks, the whole of it reminiscent of a barren wasteland, scorched and broken by the heat of a relentless desert sun; her face bears the reddish shade and scalded texture of the rest of her body, but has been spared the riddling cracks and breaks that much of the rest of her suffered. Her teeth are black, and not at all human in shape, seeming more like fangs. The top of her head is oddly shaped: where her forehead should end it instead rises in a row of small yellowish bony spines, forming a natural crown of horns that holds her hair up and away from her face, though a few stray locks have managed to find their way down regardless. A star-shaped scar stands out vibrantly, slightly darker than the rest of her skin, in the center of her forehead. Her ears come to slight points, and have scars that suggested they had been pierced, despite lacking any adornment now. The sclera of her eyes are entirely black, veined with pale yellow rather than the expected red, with irises of a darker yellow-gold that seems to glow slightly on its own and pupils that are not the expected empty black but rather orangish-red like her eyes had been filled with fire.
She seems to be more wiry strength than raw muscle, toned and fit but not bulky. Her appearance is for all other purposes that of a human traveler in her late twenties or early thirties, save her hands - her fingers end in small white claws each approximately half an inch long and wickedly sharp. A star-shaped scar, exactly mirroring the one on her forehead, adorns the palm of her left hand.
Karish dresses in the garb of a traveler or adventurer. She wears a simple grey tunic, light blue denim traveling pants and comfortable brown mountain boots with thick leather soles. All of her clothing shows at least some wear from long use and time on the road, though it seems to remain in overall still good condition. Over her normal clothing she wears a suit of steel chainmail, overlaid with a black vest that has a few pockets for stray or useful small objects. At her wrists she wears bronze bracers, a small inscription or maker's mark of a cat and a falcon standing side-by-side adorns the one on her left hand just before the wrist. In her right hand she weilds a halberd, currently held with blade end pointed at the ground and the haft passing behind her.
She stands facing slightly to the left, head turned to look at the observer, left hand extended out towards them with hand bent back, palm out to show the star brand. Her halberd in her other hand points down at the ground, its haft passing behind her. An aura of fire surrounds the weapon's head and haft up to her hand, as well as both her arms up to her elbows. This glyph is drawn on the ground around her feet.
