: Lacrymia, aka MiaGender
: 333; appears to be in her mid-twenties.
; 4th (Avarice)Appearance:
A dark-haired woman with full red lips and tattered black wings. Tends to dress in modern human clothing, even at school, and always wears something red -- most often a scarf.
Abilities: Passes well
: She's spent enough time on Earth that she's quite good at passing for human.Technologically adept
: Unlike some older demons, she's comfortable with modern human technology, including cars and computers.Extensive library
: Mia has an enormous library of books, including titles on various obscure subjects.
: As a collector, Mia can 'collect' any emotion (except lust, which is the domain of succubi). In hell, this is most commonly used to gather pain from suffering human souls, but it isn't limited to that. Collected emotions appear to be small, marble-like spheres, which can be consumed (in the case of pain or other negative emotions) or used as projectile weapons.
: Mia can throw a sphere of emotion, which will burst on contact and flood the target with that emotion. The effects may range from incapacitating to merely annoying, depending on the strength of the emotion and the target's willpower.
Mia can remove and collect memories the same way she does emotions, although it is a more complex process and prone to both failure and... excessive success, leaving the target a mindless husk.Collapse Soul:
Mia can touch a human soul to collapse it into a small glowing sphere, for ease of transportation or storage. She can also reverse the effect. Note that this only applies to disembodied souls -- the human must already be dead for this to work.Extradimensional Pocket
: Mia has access to an infinitely large space in which to store objects, and can summon the one she wants...
unless she's flustered, in which case she may sometimes 'grab' the wrong thing.
Possible Club Interest:
S&M club, drama club, book club
Mia may be bookish, but she's not quiet. If she has an opinion, she's quick to speak up. She also leans heavily on the 'lawful' side of 'lawful evil,' so she's also quick to react if she thinks something is unfair. This, combined with her many trips to Earth and her penchant for human clothing, have led some to dub her a 'human sympathizer.'
In point of fact, Mia does have some
sympathy for the humans... but really, she mostly loves them for their books. Wonderful, wonderful books. Like all collectors, she has a 'weakness', a particular thing she simply has
to have... and in Mia's case, it's books.
Mia is asexual, like most collectors, unless she falls under the influence of a succubus or incubus. She does take an almost sexual pleasure in causing and collecting pain, however.
Mia is, as demons go, quite ordinary. Conceived by a soul-collector mother and an incubus father, she's still not considered to be a half-breed -- that's simply how collectors reproduce. She discovered her love of books while she was still a child, straying into a used book-store when her mother took her on one of her trips to Earth. Thereafter her mother would leave her at the library while she went about her rounds, collecting souls.
Her obsession with books seemed to lead logically to an interest in their authors, and she picked one such to play 'muse' to, gathering emotions and memories and imbuing his dreams with them. She even had a relationship of sorts with him, but eventually the complete lack of sex drove him to find another woman. Of course, even if it hadn't been sexual, Mia was still possessively obsessive. Fueling him with rage, she drove her writer to kill the 'other woman.' What she didn't expect was that he would then turn the gun on himself... and before she could take away his despair, he took his life.
Mia spent some time away from Earth after that, but inevitably she was drawn back by the siren song of books. Discovering some on BDSM, she was delighted by the perverse concept of humans deliberately
causing each other pain. She returned to New York City and became part of the local BDSM scene, going by 'Mistress Mia.' She believes that pain collected from willing, living victims is more exotic and flavorful than the ordinary pain collected from damned souls.
Mia is looking forward to attending SIN, and hopes to learn skills that will be useful to her on Earth. She intends to become a professional dominatrix, ultimately running her own dungeon, where herself and other collectors and generate and gather pain, which will then be marketed to Hell. Importing pain to Hell might seem a bit like importing ice to Antarctica, but Mia is convinced that with the right angle, it could work. Obviously they'll need a demon from the 8th Circle to do the marketing.
Mia is determined that sex is nothing but a distraction, when it isn't a means of reproduction... and she has no intention of reproducing any time soon. She is, therefore, happily asexual, and automatically wary of any succubi or incubi who might induce her to become otherwise, however temporarily.
