A curious little gnome, Wimji often found herself in trouble as a child. It was with great joy that her parents discovered her aptitude for music, memorization and performance and were able to funnel her creative energies into musical expresion and away from more dangerous exploits. Wimji quickly mastered the basics of lute and pan pipes, and began looking for ways to “improve” upon the instruments herself. She can learn a new song by hearing it only twice, but will rarely play it exactly as wrote, often experimenting with a different instrumental adaptation, or changing keys and adding harmonies to create her own variation.
While she may play fast and loose with the melody, she never alters the lyrics, feeling that the lyrics are a story and those words were chosen by the author for a specific purpose. Some of her research goes into collecting and comparing lyrical variations of songs arcoss race and geographical areas. She is very curious about sounds and trying to recreate them using her instruments and anything else lying around. She also has a very long memory for rumor and myth, and can happily spend hours pouring through a library or listening to an elder tell stories of olden days. Though her speaking voice sounds almost childlike, there is a depth to it when she performs, either singing or story telling, that draws her audience in.
Wimji has an interest in the myths and songs of all races, finding commmon themes cropping up arcoss different lands. Her thirst for knowledge and folklore contained in music and stories can be obsessive and lead to a disregaurd for her own safty. It’s not uncommon for her to forget to eat or venture into the seedier side of town in pursuit of a story or song.
Her current quest is the puzzle of the City of Four Winds. Facinated by the Underwind, she is trying to figure out where it comes from. Her search has lead her to cross paths with the Half-Elf Rowen, who sparked ehr curiousity in the mystery of Orlox. Perhaps the two are linked?
