Josephine "Josette" Chloe MarceauxGender:
Twenty-Six (D.O.B. - 06-07-?
Ambassador to France in Rome.Personality:
Josette is airy, and the world is a bit of a playground in her eyes. She has failed to develop a serious face in all of her years. she's either, excited, happy, erratic, or pitiful. When the world does get difficult, she finds herself unable to deal with it, and would rather ignore the problem, walk away, pretend that it never happened, and move on with life. From a young age, she has been this way, and it was the perfect kind of mind for a politician. Her sense of humor is bland, and she's more used to hearing fake laughs then real ones. It should go without saying, that she can't tell the difference. Her view of things is askew, and she's a bit delusional, always seeing things much more simplistically than they actually are.
In one hand, she's a bit of a clutz, socially and physically. But, Josette has a brilliant mind. she's a undocumented mathematical genius. The numbers always fell into place for her. However, she never cared for the subject, and failed to do anything with it. She also excelled the sciences, language, and composition, making her indispensable to whomever finds her useful for more than half of a second. She speaks French, German, English, Spanish, and Italian. Her focus at the university ended up being in linguistics. In the end, she is a tragic image of modern intelligence. For, the girl is capable beyond belief, but without a goal in mind, she is destined to waste her education on superficial bullshit. Background:
Raised on the outskirts of Paris, Josette had her education paid for, and she attended a private girls school for the first ten years of her education. Her parents never re-located. Father Marceaux, a political man as well, never held office in the public eye. But his work behind the scenes of French proletarian men, woman, and principalities earned him a fantastic wage, and his wife never had to work. Josephine was an only child, and if it weren't for the strict lessons of her father's budget, and deserved property, she would have been spoiled.
In her teenage years, she related herself to Octavian of the Juliae. As she lost her virginity, lightly abused herself with substances and smoke, figured her mature lessons in school and out of school; Josette stayed on track, a scholar, and a dedicated woman. She found herself to be more stuck up than most of her peers; and, given a social circumstance at the age of fifteen, Josette stopped socializing completely. She alienated herself from all of her friends, and focused on her studies. It paid off. Ms. Marceaux earned her high-school diploma when she was sixteen and graduated as the Salutatorian for her class.
Accepted to Oxford, as well as three other prestigious European colleges, Josette considered going over one of the seas for school, but she stayed, decidedly becoming a woman of extreme aptitude. The classes were difficult, and being a seventeen year old girl in the middle of a place like Oxford was a real wake-up call. She was no longer the cream of the crop, and when it came down to it, she was a bit of a dunce upon arrival. If it weren't for her advanced placement, she likely would have dropped out of Oxford to attend a less aristocratic institution.
It took two years for her to adjust. An older boyfriend named Francis J. Loman, helped her with this task immensely. He was a senior at the University when she found him, twenty three years old, he fell deeply in love with the nineteen year old Josette. He was born, and raised only a few kilometers from the college. so, when he graduated, she still had an on-campus boy-toy that could help her with emotional concerns, sexual desires, academic follies, and even social distress. She collected a large circle of friends, and ended up earning a four year degree with a 3.45 GPA. It wasn't bad, but she was frustrated with her own mediocrity.
She broke up with Francis to return to Paris. It was painful, but the loneliness only lasted for a few months. It felt like she had left her whole life behind in Britain. It wasn't until she came back to France, that she realized her parents were the only people that she knew in the whole country, besides her professors from grade-school. Still ahead of the pack, Josette was only twenty one when she became a grad student at Descartes University.
Higher education treated her well, and the struggles of life diminished into shadow. She truely found herself here, and became learned enough to find a job with ease. With eight years of advanced study under her belt, this twenty six year old has taken on her first real trip into reality. With the connections that her father had sustained, she recieved her dream-job without difficulty. That is, of course, the diplomatic life between France and Rome.Ambitions:
At this point in Josephine's life, nothing is clear to her. Her only real ambition is to succeed at her job, and ultimately have children. She does feel like she is falling behind in the game of life now. she's closer to thirty then she would like to believe, and not a single prospect for a husband. Politically, she is bound to make money. It is likely that she will play her game, ultimately to earn the biggest payday imaginable. I do wish there was more to put here, but she's so young, and sheltered. Josette is fully unprepared for this complicated world of political intrigue. she thinks that she is, and she is not. That's the theme I'm working with for this character:
'No matter how much one tries to prepare for the world. It will always be one step ahead of you.' -In the case of Ms. Marceaux, the world is almost fifteen steps ahead of her. This girl is going to have some serious trouble keeping up, and her perfectly agile form of beauty may end up being the only real asset that she has.political clout:
Unless this is unacceptable, Josette will have none of this. Her father will have connections all over, and her name will carry her farther than her personality. But, I don't want her to be a power player. She should end up being a sleeper, the kind of person that makes a difference without the intention of it. She'll likely be an information sleuth, with a steel-trap mind and the illusion of innocense, men and women will likely trust her when they shouldn't.
And, As Always
