PERSONALITY

Daring, but foolhardyProtective, but irreverentBombastic, but heartfeltCapable, but undisciplinedPhysical and impatient.

As a Fury, Golgotha leads an exciting life. Through her many challenging and often dangerous years as an aerial protector of Sedo, Golgotha has never once flinched. Characterized foremost by an absolute absence of fear, she has led her entire life diving headlong into anything that caught her eye. Her courage is drawn from her flamboyance as often as her sense of duty, but the outcome of her instant decision making (wherein she almost always picks the more perilous choice) is always the same. Daredevil maneuvers, hare-brained rescue missions and half-baked plans always result in a last-second save and miraculous escape. To date, she's been in very few binds that her athleticism and a bit of luck couldn't get her out of. Her parents call her charmed, but she calls herself blessed. 

Born with a blessing from Ignacio and constantly kept from death by lucky saves, she considers herself someone who keeps the gods close in her life. While not particularly formal about her devotion, she does pray to both Alya and Ignacio, and speaks of them both with an almost casual familiarity. Alya is spoken about with respect and personal closeness, while Ignacio, by Golgotha's description, sounds like a pesky problem uncle, like her family's beloved rascal. She speaks of and thanks the gods frequently, but her irreverence towards them is unsettling to some. Golgotha prefers to talk to the deities like friends, welcoming them into the open doors of her life as she does with everyone else. 

It takes very little to earn Golgotha's affection. Her willingness to give and to help is a driving force behind her constant, immediate action. Any time a problem is set before her, she abandons her current task to dive into it wholeheartedly, a cycle that sometimes unfortunately yields more stagnation than results. She wants to help, befriend, or impress most everyone she meets, and can be gregarious to the point of pageantry if let to carry on too long. She entertains with daring aerial maneuvers --hair-raising trick flying she learned among the Furies-- and tall tales that grow more grand with every retelling. 

Despite being a bit of a bullshitter, Golgotha's intentions are sincere and there is no known depth she wouldn't go to serve her herd. The culture of generosity and oneness that raised her inspires her daily, and she is eager to treat any stranger like a dear friend. Her overbearing friendliness and penchant for immediate action make her difficult for some to be around, and her tendency to rush headlong into situations is a very real danger to herself and her allies. Under strong leadership, her power and bravery make her a great asset, but she has a history of being directionless when left to her own devices.


HISTORY

Golgotha is the daughter of a planter and a medicine horse, the younger sister to a single brother. Her mother Nazareth was a transplant from Eithne, aided by Golgotha's father Gilgamesh's family in emigrating to Sedo. A vagabond who had spent most of her life on a circuit between the Drakefire Wood and Sirith's Vastlands, Nazareth and her family were unable to build a proper life in Sirith, and were unwelcome, undocumented, and faced the threat of slavery in Eithne. Gilgamesh's family made it their life's purpose to smuggle Eithne's refuse into Sedo, occupying Sedo's northern coast to welcome ships from the Strands. As Nazareth settled into Serora, she and Gilgamesh fell fast in love. She joined his family's efforts, putting her skills as a healer to use in the aid of refugees. She continued her training under a medicine horse, utilizing her blessing of heat vision creatively to destroy proud flesh and cauterize wounds. Ignacio's blessing had a use that the Serorans found surprisingly nurturing, and she introduced the fire god to her new family's personal pantheon. 

When she became pregnant with their first child, their son Calgary, the high-stakes lifestyle of aiding refugees was no longer an option. Gilgamesh sought a place to settle down, eventually acquiring land to keep them.  Calgary was born premature, weak and chilled. His life nearly faded away in his first months of infancy, as he shivered by the fireplace, even in Sedo's dreadful heat. Though he did eventually grow into a strong youth with his mother's constant care, Nazareth prayed to Ignacio for her second child to have all the strength and warmth her first one hadn't.

Their daughter, born with dragon wings and a fire under her skin that resembled her mother's, did just that. 

Golgotha's family, close-knit and giving, was typically Seroran even though their lifestyle was not. Unlike the nomads that travel in bands across Sedo, Golgotha's father Gilgamesh established a farm for his family to live on, raising his crops and his children in the mild, fertile landscape two day's travel south of Osulas. Their farm, which sat on the eastern bend of the Niurros River, was passed frequently by travelers, who always found a warm welcome from the farmer Gilgamesh and his wife Nazareth. 

Often, visitors would share a meal and what little room remained free in the home (whose occupants were all giants), but sometimes, the strangers' needs were much more urgent. It wasn't uncommon that Nazareth's talents as a medicine horse were called upon: an ankle twisted in the dark, a hock sliced by a plow, an eye injured by a broken strap. The injured and sick from traveling groups and nearby settlements were ushered to her farm when she couldn't leave home. With no room in their small tool shed or their crowded house, she often treated injuries in the farm yard, open to the elements. Sometimes, patients she couldn't help did not survive the trip to Osulas.

Nazareth grew weary from the losses. As her healing failed her community, Gilgamesh saw the light leave her, little by little. Unable to stand it, the workhorse solved the problem the only way he knew how: he started digging. 

With the help of his two strong children, Gilgamesh worked tirelessly to create a huge clay building, open to all, where Nazareth could do her healing in safety and shelter, and anyone could seek peace from the elements. As time went on, it became a remote meeting spot, a city away from the city, and a frequent stop for travelers. Traders came and went, pilgrims stopped on their way to the Sear, and citizens of nearby towns treated Nazareth's place like a clubhouse as often as a hospital. Nazareth's place. It had no other name. It was hard to otherwise define.

Even though Golgotha inherited the stationary, laborious life her farmer father had built for his family, she still saw all of Sedo, in a way. Sedo visited her home, stopped in Nazareth's Place for some water. Sedo told her stories while helping to weed the cabbages, and Sedo walked through her front door, which was always open, to share everything they had. She loved to listen to the warriors and their tales of Chimeras and Thunderbirds, and her family used the strength they'd built in the fields to train with their skilled visitors, all laughing as a young Golgotha consistently laid her older brother flat in the sand.

Gilgamesh thrived in the company, his laughter often heard booming through the public house he'd built. He ended every long day of work with an audience to entertain. Hardworking, selfless, and straightforward, Gilgamesh was popular in the area --though not nearly popular enough to win the title of Sultan, despite a small contingency's enthusiastic attempt to elect him-- and it was no surprise that Golgotha's brother Calgary aspired to be just like him. He studied the earth, and the careful cultivation of prospering life, both in the field and in the home. 

Golgotha was not so patient. 

She was interested in the practical Doing of things-- she harvested quickly, she continuously restored the building, she learned to build on her own. Creation, action, results inspired her. She had no interest in waiting for seeds to grow, or wounds to heal. Her parents realized they couldn't teach their daughter what she wanted to learn; when she was a teenager, she went away to become the first in her family to make a lifestyle out of the combat training all Serorans receive. 

Before she had a lick of skill,  her brute strength, gigantic stature, and fire blessing made her a promising trainee. She hit like a boulder, and her powerful tail made her an agile, elegant flier despite her size. Her lifelong fearlessness --which once had made her the farm's resident beheader of rattlesnakes and climber of scaffolds-- made her a daring warrior. However, throughout her training, her recklessness consistently held her back from any recognition. She acted before she thought, leaped into the fray constantly, eager to prove her mettle. Despite her talents, she didn't shine as a trainee. Her commanders looked on her hasty nature with concern and, sometimes, disdain; when she eventually graduated to a full-fledged Fury, she was doomed to a low rank where her impetuousness might be trained out of her. 

Her career as a fury had a rocky beginning. She was placed under the command of the strong-willed captain Jabin, whose steel nerves would hopefully tame her own, and their relationship was contentious from the start. Golgotha, inherently impulsive, sometimes defied her captain, who fought her insubordination viciously at every turn. Though among the most physically capable fliers --whose deft maneuvers and heavy hits made her an absolutely formidable soldier-- she failed to become a cohesive part of her unit. She always took the bolder option, the more dangerous path, and her fellow soldiers did not follow. Golgotha's attitude would claim a great cost from her unit one day when, on patrol, they were attacked by a territorial pair of Thunderbirds. Golgotha chose to fight rather than flee, engaging a powerful enemy in an unwinnable contest. One of her teammates was subsequently blasted from the sky, suffering a pinion injury from which he would never fully recover. 

Having permanently grounded one of her allies with her foolishness, Golgotha resigned from the Furies in shame, and returned to Gilgamesh's farm. There, she aided her brother in expanding the building, creating additional sleeping space to accommodate the growing traffic. She was surprised how much had changed. Calgary sold vegetables from a new market stall. Boxes collecting goods for charity had been installed, and Nazareth's clinic had doubled in size. Her home had grown without her, while she was off wasting her training. Golgotha got the feeling she no longer belonged here. 

She remained at home for a summer, aiding Gilgamesh in the fields and stifling her fire blessing to keep the farm from catching in the arid heat. She performed aerial feats to delight visitors, taught trick flying to young pegasi, and toiled. She plowed, planted, cut, baled and harvested. She dug, stacked, pulled, and carried. She relearned what her strength could be used for. She remembered how to be a part of something. Even so, Golgotha could not shake the feeling that this was not her place in the world. Her mind heavy with thoughts of the comrade she had allowed to be hurt, she returned to Jabin, her captain, and asked humbly to try again. 

He was skeptical, but patient. In training, he pushed her hard, kept her on task. As the years went on, and young soldiers were transferred to more experienced squadrons, Golgotha stayed in Jabin's command as his loyal lieutenant. When young trainees like her come through the unit, pushing for glory, Golgotha pushed them back. She gave them no choice but to learn from her mistakes. 

Now a senior Fury, --with a respectable rank, though still too hot-blooded to command troops-- Golgotha lives her life halfway between the military and her busy home. Her brother, now a married father of four, has his hands full keeping old Nazareth's place running. Golgotha built herself another home on the property, behind the house her father built, and aids her busy brother by tending to their parents. Gilgamesh, now blind and rheumatic, and Nazareth, now retired after training many young medicine horses, spend their days grooming a garden and entertaining the travelers who stop in for a rest and a warm welcome. Golgotha dazzles her nieces and nephews with her skilled military maneuvers, with bursts of flame, and the same tales of Chimeras and Thunderbirds that once set her imagination alight. 

As a fury, she continues to travel to the far reaches of Sedo, and always brings it back home with her.
