She's not like Viconia. But she does have an attitude like a dwarf so don't act like a fool around her.

She really doesn't get along with Korgan. She admires his fighting skills but loathes his attitude and outlook in life. She even goes as far as calling him a duergar.

She has an uneasy relationship with Viconia. Viconia being an evil drow, that is something Shi'nayne doesn't like but she does realize that Viconia is no longer part of drow society since she is an outcast from a fallen house. She just wishes she would walk out of the darkness and into the light.


Shi'nayne doesn't consider herself a drow in the true sense of the word. She may look like them but she doesn't act like them nor does she want anything to do with their evil culture and gods. You will see this in her dialogs. Like with Viconia, she flatly says the drow are her people, not hers. Her people are those in the dwarven clan.

Banter with Viconia.

Viconia ~ Shi'nayne is it true you were raised by dwarves?

Shi'nayne ~ It is true I was raised by dwarves. I was taken in by King Stonecrusher and raised as his own child after my mother died.

Viconia ~ Ah you poor thing.

Shi'nayne ~ What do you mean by that? I was well taken care of and provided for.

Viconia ~ Being raised by dwarves, I suppose there are worst fates like being brought up with the surface elves. You were probably never taught anything about our culture.

Shi'nayne ~ There is nothing wrong with being raised by dwarves Viconia. They taught me a great deal about honor and loyalty, to live a good fruitful life. It's much better than being raised with constant paranoia about having someone stab you in the back, especially by your own family, just to move up in rank! I know a great deal about "your" culture from my mother's diary and books that I have read.

Viconia ~ Ah I see now. You're a tall, dark skinned, beardless dwarf I take it?

Shi'nayne ~ Don't ye bloody mock me drow! Guttan dorth frala ghust! *

Viconia ~ Now the world famous dwarf temper and accent comes out finally. Easy sister you may break a blood vessel.

Shi'nayne ~ (Shi'nayne stares at Viconia for a moment and says nothing else to her.)

* She's cursing in Dwarvish. Something I made up.

Because she's an elf? Couldn't you create her as a human and then change her race and animation to elven afterward? Ah, but then she'd lose her infravision and sleep/charm immunities, too. Maybe you could patch in the kit during installation?

I thought elves could be any speciality mages.
Per me si va nella citta dolente.
Per me si va nell eterno dolore.
Per me si va tra la perduta gente...
Lasciate ogni speranza perduta che'entrate!

Those look good.


Number two that I found is starting to look better the more I look at it.  She's wearing armor so I suppose it could be special armor that enables her to cast spells while wearing it like elven armor does. The image of the drow looks young just like she is. The armor is not dwarven but looks like drow or elven in design.

I wonder if I should have an optional install for her. One where she wears robes and uses the paper doll of a mage and the second option of her wearing armor and uses the paper doll of a fighter/mage, which would make her look like a fighter.

Then maybe the second one of mine could be used for mage paperdoll. I think there was a BG2tweaks script that allowed a character to change the paperdoll whenever a robe or an armor was used. I remember using it on Imoen.

I'll probably upload them all as optional portraits like I did with Callisto. Yeah number two is looking better the more I look at it.
