Physical Description: Edit

Tall (over seven feet) and muscular (more toned than bulked up), as would be expected with a half-orc. She takes good care of her thick hair, often wearing it up to keep it out of the way. She also keeps her tusks in pristine order, brushing them every night before bed. She doesn't pay much attention to her outfit, preferring to scrounge what will work. She figures that over-doing the dress sense might out her as a former rock star. Her pants are a little too large, and she turned a shirt into little more than a sports bra. But, being an occasional model in the past, she still knows how to make even found fashion look like it belongs on her. The one flourish she allows herself is a mink stole. She wears her tambourine on her belt.

She has tattoo on her shoulder of a circle with a lightning bolt, representing the god of war. That was placed there as a tribal requirement, and is not her favorite. She also has a tattoo in elvish that says "peace." Or at least that's what the person who tattooed it on her said.

If she was a Spice Girl, she'd be Sporty Spice.

History: Edit

In a past life, Olash was the tambourine player of the popular band Ooo. However the life of a famous musician didn't suit her as well as she'd hoped, and she left the band to find another path. At the start of the adventure, Olash is illiterate and wishing to learn to read, but is also too embarrassed to admit this.
