Beautiful though she is, Ahri is equally as deadly. She was born in the northern forests of her homeland, known to be snowy and cold, with harsh living conditions, and spent her live hunting and killing in order to survive. Given that she was alone in the wilderness, she is immensely independent as she always had to care for herself. Her formative years saw little to no interaction with humans, and thus does she struggle to comprehend all the nuances and details of human emotion. Empathy is also quite hard to come by for her. She relies on instincts, heightened senses, and uses that to try to try to understand, or feel, but this has limited success. Humans were long seen just as other prey to her. A food source, a hunt for her own pleasure.
She was blessed to have magic blood coursing through her veins, and thus does she draw power and energy from earth and life around her. She can easily influence a vulnerable mind, altering their thoughts and believes, and influencing their emotions so that she might devour their life essence. Humans brought her the greatest pleasure to consume, as she took in emotions and memories from consuming their souls, and tended to get drunk on such power. Since she could dazzle and romance humans with beauty and desire, and likewise implement loss and longing, playing on their fears, she could get even more out of the emotion she consumed.
Armed with all these stolen memories, and visions of the lives she stole, Ahri lived thousands of live and experiences that were not her own. She began to get a better understanding of emotion, having felt heartbreak and love, painful desire and longing, and the more she felt, the more she wanted more, because she felt alive and exhilarated. Her understanding never really developed deeply, but it was enough to make her crave more knowledge, and more life. Ahri lives how she chooses, no matter her shifting, though ever grey morality, and she is determined to get whatever she desires. Untamable and wild, fearsome and apathetic, Ahri does not show mercy. Compassion can be shown, but she barely understands the emotion of it. Her humanity grows, but it rivals her nature, and that is likely to never change, no matter how human she does become.
At her core, Ahri is playful and spirited. She has a tendency to toe the line with her companions by pushing their buttons and getting them to react, and likewise toys with her prey with great whimsy. There is no harmful intent behind this behavior when it is directed toward her friends and allies, and she will try to understand and listen if an individual asks her to ease up. Just as she is playful, she is rightfully curious. Curiosity was a trait she had long held, even when she was a fox. Along with her curious nature, Ahri is quite cunning. When her curiosity might go too far and land her in hot water, her quick on her feet nature, and adaptive mind allow for her to always land on her feet. Agile and clever, charismatic yet rightfully reserved, Ahri is confident enough to never be too fearful of others or the situations she may land in.
What others might first take note of with Ahri is her flirtatious personality. She is charming: sometimes saccharine sweet, and other times dominating and seductive. This trait goes hand in hand with her natural predatory skills and instincts, but she did not only evolve in this way for survival. Ahri is a pleasure seeker, and getting her way comes with relative ease given her personality and understanding of emotion and human souls. Consuming human souls, specifically, lends itself to her desire of becoming human. Yet she is has evolved from being a solely selfish killer for she has learned some semblance of morality from mingling with humans, and can be made to feel remorse for her actions, though this is not reliable. She maintains the honed instincts of a longtime killer and huntress.
Ahri can be known to grow quite fond of her friends and allies. She will be protective over them as a lion with her cubs, and is fiercely loyal at heart. Others tend to have a habit of misunderstanding Ahri, however, for while she can be charming and charismatic, she has been alone for many years, and thus does not necessarily possess the best skills for long term alliances or relationships with others. She does, meanwhile, long for these bonds, and a place to call home. When others look past her sharp tongue and overly inquisitive nature, they can find a loyal and true woman too long corrupted by loneliness, but getting her to retract her claws does not come with inherent ease.
Though she no longer kills for pleasure- though will still indulge in consuming life essence, which does not take a life- Ahri is still a very powerful magical being who will absolutely kill if it is required. She is wise and cunning, being a thousand years old, and thus will not hesitate to cut down enemies with relative ease. Harming her and those that she cares for is a good way to get on her bad side, but so is pushing her beyond her breaking point, where she might snap as she is still working on perfecting her control over her power and desires.
She is very flirty, playful, cunning, and charming. There is a high chance that many characters will take a liking to her given how she carries herself, and how she interacts with others. I am elated to play up any of that with whoever would like to, but remember that it is her nature, so it does not necessarily guarantee her interest in a romantic relationship. She is open to play around, so long as she herself is interested, but don't count on her settling down just because she shows some affection. Ahri needs a little push and pull for her to truly work with someone else. She is a very commanding presence, so having someone match that would excite her, but more than that- or even in lieu of that, she needs someone who can take control, and also let her take control, someone who can be loving and affectionate, but let her be loving and affectionate. Ahri truly seeks equals, though especially those who challenge her. Now mind, I also love the wolf/girl (...fox/girl) aesthetic for her with the more unassuming types, so long as their personalities mesh.
In terms of sexuality, Ahri is bisexual, with a bit of a lean towards women. I am very open to crossovers, as I do not know that I ship much among League champions.
