And now for the third to last character here. Another from my own RP
So I had decided that I would take the element that was last picked for this RP. And I had people interested in all the elements except Water so I figured I might as well make it.
Which is nice for me because Water is actually one of my two favorite elements.
So when I was figuring out what I'd use for the Chosen I went and found images for each of the elements. I saw this one and it just resonated with me. I like magic and witches in general and the image all together just looked great.
Looking at her she seemed a bit lazy, but she was also studying and such, so I figured she was less lazy and more languid. Which fits for water.
She seemed to be living on her own despite being young, and had a pet cat.
And this made me think about why that would be the case. The bio actually came before anything else. And I wanted to do it in segments, each with a quote.
The first was all about the unfortunate circumstances of her birth. I wanted someone who would have parents that weren't there for good reason. One was dead and, well, as bad as it is it makes sense someone might not quite be attached to a baby made through something so terrible.
I wanted Keres to have started out full of hope and happiness and see how it could turn into someone much more solemn and silent. It showed how adults and their ideas can taint innocence. The children accepted Keres at first until they grew older and realized that the adults disliked her for her seeming witch-origin.
It was really interesting to get to see a change of character throughout the bio. I admit I went a little ham with this bio. I couldn't help it. Keres's history just sprung into my head all at once and I just had to write out the entire thing in what was basically a short story format....This was my favorite bio to write honestly.
And really her personality could have been described in her bio. I wanted to make a more silent character but didn't want it to be purely "She doesn't talk much". She's actually a very emotional person but due to isolation has no idea how to express it. I really loved this concept and was so excited to have the idea.
Her powers are really simple honestly but they are exciting. Whip weapons are wonderful and illusions can be fun, though haven't been able to use it much so far.
Honestly I just worry that I am not giving Keres justice. She doesn't get a chance to really do much because her stuff is mixed with host duties. I will try harder to show more of her. Though I will admit she's a hard character to actually write in this format.
In any case I really hope Keres doesn't die because I want to bring out more and more of her.
She has many chances to interact and grow with each of the characters left all in different ways and that is so exciting.
