Circe Player: AribethAmkiirTagline: Sugar and Spice… not likely.Gender:
Weary brown eyes caked heavily with dark mascara peer indifferently from a mass of spiked blonde dyed tips which jut in a carefully orchestrated cacophony upon Circe’s head. Beneath the hair rests a young woman’s face, innocent and sweet except for a twinkle in the eyes which belies a very dangerous “little girl”. Circe wears a green jacket, capable of protecting her from small arms fire, zipped to varying degrees of modesty as her mood requires. Snug pants and a white undershirt complete the rest of her suit. A bandolier worn at a diagonal accentuates her hips and holds her Torgue explossive repeater pistol.Durability:
Circe’s jacket allows her to take some small arms fire but isn’t designed for sustained protection. If her shields go down, it’s best if she stays behind cover until they recharge.Shield:
A Maliwan Fire Spike shield, this shield is durable and can withstand a barrage of heavy fire for a short amount of time. The recharge isn’t fast, but it’s fast enough that it leaves little downtime for the Siren to work without them. The shield also has the notable effect of burning anyone that strikes Circe in close quarters. Special Ability: Phaselock
- Effectively locks a target between dimensions, freezing them in place, and leaving them incapacitated for a short amount of time during which the target is vulnerable to attacks. Rumors abound that Circe’s Phaselock
ability does more than simply freeze a target though those who have experienced it have never been given the chance to discuss it. Like all Sirens Circe can also use the Phase Strike
Circe is an expert with repeater pistols, and assault rifles.Skills:
Hacking, hiding, and getting into places she shouldn’t be.WeaponsVladof Slag Spinigun
- High rate of fire assault rifle with three rotating barrels and a 30 shot magazine. It fires slag bullets, which allows her to saturate the field with slag to weaken enemies. Softens the enemies up and lets Archon tear through ‘em.Torgue Hand Cannon
- It was a gift, kinda. Acheron handed it to her and told her not to lose it. She’s had it ever since. This pistol is a heavy power explosive weapon (for a pistol) and holds 4 shots per reload and fires at a decent rate.Phase Strike
- Like all Sirens Circe is able to use her phase shifting powers in a more direct, hand-to-hand fashion causing severe damage from her melee strikes.Background:
Circe was born a Siren, and despite having tattoos that covered her left arm and body since she could remember, she was content to believe her parents when they told her it simply meant she was “special”. Special enough to force her folks to move constantly, stay low, and never bring unwanted attention to themselves. That lasted for a few years, then someone would notice Circe’s tattoos and the family would pick up in the middle of the night and run for it. She lost her ma when she was seven and her pa when she was nine. By that time she’d figured out she was the reason for their deaths. Her and her tattoos. She would’ve likely been caught and killed too if she hadn’t had the good sense to find the biggest, meanest bloke she could and convince him to help her. All it took was a sad look, a gentle touch, and a quiet please. She’d chosen well and the blood of her hunters was proof enough.
Circe left with Acheron and his mercenary pals, the Red Dogs, and never looked back. She was eager to prove herself, learned quickly how to defend herself, and took to killing like a duck to water. It was easy enough. All she had to do was simply imagine the person she was killing had killed her ma and pa. Over time she figured out how to use her Siren abilities and began to enjoy the friendships she had forged with Acheron and the other Red Dogs. That, of course, ended. Two men, she thought she could trust, accosted her while she was sleeping. One had slipped a bag over her head while the other tried to pin her to her bunk. A phaselock suspended one and allowed her to move, find her gun and shoot the other. She almost unloaded on Acheron when he came to rescue her, covered in blood like he always was, as if bullets would’ve stopped him if he’d been against her. It always amazed her what a simple touch and word had done.
The two rid themselves of the garbage. Then Circe, having heard rumors of Pandora and Eridium her entire life, convinced Acheron to take them to the Vault planet.Sexual Interest/Boundaries:
She has a thing for people who are loyal, strong, and make her feel safe. Despite having interest in Acheron, he still sees her as a little girl and that doesn’t really do it for him. Sex isn’t something Circe seeks, though a bit of warm companionship on a cold night isn’t something she’ll turn down, unless the person is ugly, or mean, or has tried to kill her in the past 48 hours.
