Personality: Cinderglow is a quiet and gentle soul. Some mistake her calmness for passivity but if they do, they might soon discover they are making a mistake – despite her gentleness she has a strong will, not to say that she can be very stubborn. She is cheerful and has a rather practical way of thinking. She has a strong sense of justice; injustice is one of the few things that can really set her off and make her react aggressively.
Likes: Plants, the quiet in the silk worm caves, working with her lifemate or her daughter
Doesn’t like: Injustice, snakes, lizards, is a bit afraid of deeper water and therefore generally prefers the hot pools to the fresh water grotto
History: Cinderglow was born as the youngest of three to Rockfall and Agate – her brothers Gentleflame and Granite were long grown by that time. She never knew her father who died shortly before her birth but her mother always made sure to share stories and sendings about him with the girl once she was old enough to understand. Her brothers were strongly involved with raising her, and so she was and still is close to both of them.
Her powers surfaced early and proved to be quite strong. She was very proud of them and found great pleasure working in the gardens though she also tried her hand at weaving because she felt she needed some creative work, too.
When she Recognized Pitchblack, she was happy even if a bit unsure at first, since at just about 900 years she was still rather young by Cave Dweller standards and didn’t know yet if she was ready to be a mother. Though Pitchblack was such a grumpy elf she was ready to see another side of him, remembering how her mother had spoken with so much love of her similarly grumpy father. They became lifemates soon after Recognition and she hasn’t regretted the decision in any way.
She loves her daughter Dash deeply but sometimes is a bit exasperated at Dash’s rejection of all things female. For a long time she had tried sparking her interest in weaving and more feminine clothes but finally had given up and accepts her as she is now. She misses her a bit after Dash had moved out but lets her have her freedom.
