 +**Personality and Description**\\ ​
 +----
 +Lana's a very outgoing girl with a few strange ideas about the world and how it works. She seems upbeat although not overpoweringly so, and very curious about the world around her. The girl has a tendency to space out, especially when no one's around, often times staring at the most colorful thing in her range of vision with a small smile.
 +
 +She's built tough and clearly aware of it, but sometimes fails to realize her own strength when it comes to rough-housing with friends and acquaintances. Her usual greeting is either a slap on the back or a smack to the shoulder, so it may take new friends some time to get used to that (and the slight soreness it's bound to leave).
 +
 +The girl won't turn down a drink. She especially won't turn down a drinking //​contest//​. To top that off, when she's drunk, she often won't turn down a roll in the hay... As long as it's with a specific sort of partner.
 +
 +There'​s a strange and slightly foreign beauty to the way she looks, mocha-skinned with bright and striking blue eyes that stand out quite a lot when she's glanced at. She's not particularly tall, but she is built fairly thick in all the places that traditionally matter. There'​s very little fat to her, likely from years of working on the farm, and a pretty healthy amount of muscle to be seen.

 +**Personal Items**\\
 +----
 +^ [[http://​www.rusclothing.com/​imp/​dress-elena-lg.jpg|Traditional Dress]] | A red and yellow dress brought over from Moscovia. It seems to be the only clothing she owns... Hopefully more than one, right? .. Right? |
 +^ [[http://​img.photobucket.com/​albums/​v121/​Niiro/​gershan.png|Gershan Family Helmet]] | A rusted old helmet with a visor that won't go down. She wears this despite donning a dress, making her look even stranger than she probably already does. |
 +^ Farmer'​s Charm | A rabbit'​s foot from home. She claims it brings her luck. |
 +
 +**Biography**\\
 +----
 +Those native to Moscovia or particularly well-versed in Sybir'​s history may have heard of the Warrior-Maiden Gershan. She was a particularly pivotal soldier in the war, fighting under the flag of Moscovia, and carried a massive mace that was wielded effortlessly and crushed the head of any man or woman who dared come before her in battle.
 +
 +... That's history, though, and the family line has calmed down considerably since then. Living now as a family of farmers with a relatively relaxed lifestyle, they'​ve all but forgotten the ways of their past. Well, all of them but one particular daughter! Svetlana, born to Mikhail and Katya Gershan, grew up listening to legends of her great-great-grandmother and her exploits in battle.
 +
 +Call it childlike fascination or just an overactive imagination,​ but as the years passed Svetlana focused less on her duties around the house and more on learning how to fight -- Specifically with heavier maces. She was determined to emulate her ancestor, despite slight protests from her mother and father, and when she came of age she was determined to leave on a quest to prove her lineage.
 +
 +Such a traditional quest was often reserved for families that were more oriented towards war, but the girl had it in her head that she had warrior blood in her! After a bit of hemming and haw-ing from both parents she was given the rusted helmet of the Gershan family and told to go out and find her path.
 +
 +Plunking the tarnished old relic on her head, she fashioned her own mace out of a thick board and a few worker'​s nails, and hopped on the first boat to the Republic. Adventure awaited!
 +
 +**Recent Development**\\
 +----
 +  * Spent several months in the Republic, wandering aimlessly from town to town and generally not enjoying herself very much. She decided to travel south to Rune only recently, in pursuit of an old friend named Alexei.
 +  * After spending a night in Al de Baran she made the trip to Heidelberg, having heard that its architecture was very reminiscent of the cottages in Sybir. While it isn't exactly what she expected, she's happy to be in a place that feels at least somewhat like home.
 +  * Participated in a drinking contest soon after arriving with Miyagi, Shale, Maryam, and Theo. While no one was the victor, she thinks she came in second... Only behind Miyagi.
