Orianna ToussaintFae Name:
Ghostly musicianMortal Age:
Orianna is of average height, standing around 5'5", although her choice of footwear often makes her appear slightly taller, and very slim for her height. Her lidded eyes and gaunt face make her look like she is constantly daydreaming even though she rarely misses anything going on around her. Her pitch black hair is very long, reaching well past her shoulder blades, and it always appears to look slightly tousled no matter what she does with it. She enjoys wearing smudged black eyeliner and takes care to dress herself well, although she doesn't exactly keep up with current fashion trends. Overall she looks quite surreal and almost inhuman and often finds herself gaining attention that she generally does not wish to get. Her facial expressions tend to be quite blank, and generally speaking she smiles most when she's nervous. The most distinct thing about Orianna are her eyes - they are a startling shade of violet.Fae Mien:
Orianna's sluagh nature shows through to an even larger degree, and she looks more like a ghost than a fae. She looks haunted and otherworldly, a trait that some people find quite attractive. All of her facial expressions appear calm and serene, her rare smiles gentle and sagelike. Her already long hair becomes even longer and seems to shimmer like polished obsidian. She generally wrangles it into a messy bun, but wisps of hair escape often and she's usually too busy poring over a book to notice. Her violet eyes darken and seem to almost glow when she hears something that interests her. She quite enjoys Victorian-era fashion and often dresses to the nines in black dresses and veils similar to Victorian mourning clothing, corsets and all. In her mortal seeming, Orianna seems a tad 'off' - in her fae mien, she looks like she stepped out of another era entirely. Her voice has, of course, lowered to nothing more than a whisper, as is the Frailty of her kith.Personality:
Although Orianna generally looks quite morose and like the kind of individual who spends far too much time writing bad poetry, she generally doesn't play into the melodrama that her kith is known for. She does, however, have the same level of almost uncomfortable politeness common in most sluaghs, and she expects the same from everyone else. Tardiness and rude manners irk her to no end, and if you're late for an appointment with her you can be quite sure you'll have an angry changeling to deal with. She doesn't tend to speak much, preferring instead to listen and occasionally bring new information to the table if she feels she has anything valuable to offer. Orianna prides herself on being able to get information and she has many contacts, although she is still spreading her network. Bartering information brings her true joy, and nothing excites her more than learning a juicy tidbit of information. Of course, it's always hard to tell if she's excited or not, as she tends to keep her emotions very much in check. However, she opens up around people she considers friends. She actually has a tendency to be less
polite to people she is fond of, and often makes cutting sarcastic remarks as a strange manner of expressing her friendship. She often seems aloof, as most sluaghs do, but she truly loves and cares about the very few people she trusts. If you've befriended Orianna, you have a friend for life. If you betray her or cause harm to someone she cares about, she will do everything in her power to make life hell. The one time Orianna is able to truly lose herself is when she's performing and playing her cello. Her whole demeanor shifts, and her body language and facial expressions become vivid and intense. When the performance ends, she's back to normal.History:
Orianna Calliste Toussaint was born to two doting French parents living in New England. They tried to make sure their darling daughter had everything, although she was much more interested in the antique toys and spiderwebs in the attic than anything shiny and new. From a young age it was clear she didn't feel comfortable around other children, and eventually she wound up being homeschooled. During that time, she started taking cello lessons and soon discovered her passion in life. By age sixteen she was performing as much as she could while still focusing on her studies, and by the time she hit age 22 she'd released two albums and become relatively famous in the world of classical music. When she went through and emerged from her Chrysalis, instead of being afraid she embraced her newfound self and became immersed in her new identity. Recently her uncle passed away and left her a rather large home - a beautiful, if slightly run down, manor where she currently lives.Other:
Orianna enjoys the company of her wraith friends a lot, sometimes more than other changelings or mortals. They assist her in gathering information in a way no living entity ever could. If someone has irritated her, she'll often take the opportunity to unnerve them by talking to any wraiths that happen to be hanging around nearby. The only pet she has is a white Angora rabbit named Alastair who looks more like a particularly large cottonball than any sort of animal
