30 Days of Character Development: Day 13

The Prompt: What does your character’s bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

It really depends on the climate and where Toriah happens to be, if she gets to sleep at all. Contrary to popular belief, adventurers don’t get to bed down in a cozy inn every single night. Some of her missions have taken her far away from civilization, even when she was a Farstrider, and her only comfort was a bedroll. If she was really lucky, she might have a tent to go over her head, or a fire to help keep her warm.

So, considering she’s actually in a bed:
– If it’s hot: Toriah usually does away with almost everything until she’s left with a pillow and a sheet, and she’ll often sleep on her back. When she wakes up, everything is pretty much still in place.

– If it’s cold: Tori’s got a habit of creating a cocoon out of her blankets when it’s cold. (You oughta try it; it’s really really comfy and warm.) Therefore, she doesn’t move around much and will sleep on her side. Getting out of bed requires a lot of self-motivation and unwrapping of layers.

All in all, there really isn’t much effort in making the bed in the morning because the disturbance to the sheets and blankets is minimal. The only place she lets herself actually relax and sleep like she’s dead to the world is her personal chamber in Silvermoon City, or if she’s visiting her mom at home. Anywhere else, she sleeps lightly and will often wake at the slightest thing that seems out of place, even if it’s completely quiet.

Call it a hunter’s instinct.
