Rahil Al-Zarqa

"Gale of Misfortune"


Cold ocean blue eyes look out from a light olive to fair skinned face, her stance held in a state of suspension like a fly by wire system waiting to snap and let go. She has the look of an abject professional covered in a coal black abaya with a transluscent shroud that moved with unseen winds while soft hairpins and a practical hijab revealed their front of her hair. The sheathes for two blades comfortably sit on her hips, wavering lightly with each step. Her voice is a little scratchy at times but bears the British influence of Hong Kong on her English, while her Persian and Arabic place her around Tehran.
