There are plenty of other things to write about right now, but this draft has been sitting here for weeks so I’m just going to post it!
So I finally got the chance to transfer my mage back over to the Alliance. I was having troubles trying to decide what race to make her. She has SO much transmog, so it was really important to me that she be pretty (I don’t care how shallow that sounds! My own body doesn’t look like this – I may as well play dress up with a body that does look good!) I was tossing up between Draenei, Night Elf and Human. I even ran a poll on twitter to get some advice. Draenei won out. But I didn’t feel it in my heart.
You see, I’ve been needing to change her name for a LONG time. I was taking her moving servers as the opportunity to do this. So I was thinking and thinking about what to name her… basically trying to recreate this character that I’ve had for so long (she was my first to max level back in the day!) She never felt quite right as a blood elf (even if she did look pretty!) The more I thought about her, the more the notion of her harnessing magic stuck with me. And so I thought about my favourite magic wielders, and of course Harry Potter came to mind. But I needed a woman. And then I thought about one of the strongest women in that book – Lily Potter (Harry’s mother). She was a powerful witch, and she loved her family fiercely – so fiercely she protected them with her own life.
And so Cinderlily was created. And of course she had to be human. I always imagined Lily with red hair for some reason, and of course she has her green eyes. I dressed her up in a new transmog and got her pet/patronus out for some pics. 🙂
She’s going to be a fire mage in Legion – I can’t wait! 😀
