Name: Ellisia Malcom

Occupation: Teacher

Sect: Solitary Practioner/Church

Orientation: Bi-Curious

Hair: Brunette

Eyes: Hazel

Height: 5' 5"

Appearance:
Ellisia is average height and weight, and has two small birthmarks. The first being the shape of a small strawberry behind her ear, and the other just a soft pink spot on her inner thigh. She wears eye glasses to read.

Abilities:

Empath: Elissia is able to not only empathize with people, she can literally feel their hurt, passion and anger. She hasn't yet learned to control what she feels when she feels. It is difficult for her to block out someones anguish or love.

Control Water: Elissia is able to manipulate liquid forms. She cannot create water, which is something she'd love to have done during some of the more intense summers.

Personality: Elissia is a quiet woman, reserved in a lot of ways. Most of this is due to her powers, though also her family. She is by no means shy, but keeps herself in check, knowing what her gifts could mean for her if she were caught. She loves to laugh however and opens up well enough once someone takes the time to get to know her.

History: Elissia, the only daughter to the town's minister, has grown up with the fear of god laid into her. She's heard all the fire and brimstone sermons more than any of the townsfolk. Her mother died in childbirth, which caused her father to be a bit more over protective. She performed the duties of a ministers daughter properly. But her gift always frightened her. Especially when she could feel her fathers fear and anger at the "sinners" in their town.

He was not an easy man to please, and often enough he would force Elissia to sit through his sermons, speaking about the unholiness of satans servants etc... She'd been engaged once, to a sailor named Tobias. It was his feelings of lust she felt inside him that reserved her want to marry him, but her father, despite her protests insisted upon the match. To him Tobias was a just man, though his profession was almost not easily looked past. But one day his ship left port, and never returned.

Since then, she's taken up the teaching post in town, though there are very few students during the harvest and planting seasons. She bides her time helping the other women around town, and bringing food to the sick.

Relationships: Not any. Unattached

I love her. That is all.

Name: Collin Williams
Occupation: Baker
Sect: Solitary Practitioner
Alignment: Black Magick
Orientation: Asexual (Bi-Curious)
Hair: Black
Eyes: Deep Grey
Height: 56
Age: 18
Appearance:  (Picture)
Abilities: Telepathy: He can receive and transmit information with the use of his mind. He also quickly developed at a young age, Mental Manipulation.
Personality: Collin is nice, thoughtful, and kind. However being a Telepath he can hear a person's most nasty thought, and that makes him push away people around him.
History: Collin had a sort of sad up bringing his parents, who were both witches, died when he was very young. Upon their death his telepathy manifested hearing the thoughts of the people around him all the time. For days he couldn't shut it off. All he heard was the voices of mourners in his head bringing up thoughts he tried to get over. Collin's grandparents took him in and raised him. Sweet elderly people, they were bakers and Salem just loved all the treats they could whip up. Breads, cakes, cookies, brownies, all of the goodies. They taught Collin everything they knew about the trade. His grandmother was a witch as well and she would sometimes use her powers in her baking to make they treats irresistible.  His grandfather was human though. He knew that Collin and his wife were witches but would rather turn a blind eye to it, because they weren't harming anyone with their powers, they were helping them, with feel-good treats. Sometimes they would make treats for all certain types of things, to ease a heartache, to get rid of sickness, find love, to empower, protection, wealth, etc.  Collin for a time was happy his grandmother taught him magick and how to block unwanted thoughts from entering his head and how to communicate with others with just thought alone. Then his grandmother got hit by a runaway cart in the market place, and being old a feeble she died. Ever since the accident his telepathy blocks were unlocked and he'd hear voices of people around him again unable to block them out this time without his grandmother's help, but with pure determination he is able to stop them for a time. His grandfather was never the same he stopped doing things he liked and left Collin to the shop most of the time, manning the front and doing the baking. Collin grew bitter, sad, and lonely. One day after school Collin was walking through the woods and some boys came up to him and started teasing him about his families deaths. How it was all his fault, and everyone around him will always die. He then twisted his mind and instead of receiving thoughts he pushed his own into others. He wished they would just leave him alone and surprisingly they stopped following him and teasing him, they just stood there. He then wished the would walk backwards, and they did. He started messing with their heads for the rest of the day and then let them go without them knowing anything that happened. Since then he found out that he can make people do what he wanted them to do. The power scared him and intrigued him at the same time, but he never uses it unless he needs to. He started playing around more with his powers, when people came into the shop he would search the private parts of their minds and find out all their dirty secrets. He didn't have any friends because he didn't trust anyone nor did he like the thoughts people had about him so he kept to himself at the bakery and at school. His telepathy kind of became his best form entertainment but he always had trouble reading other witches. Magick sometimes interferes with the signal but if he concentrates hard enough he'll get something.

Hello GhettoMagick,

I enjoyed Collin's background story and how he came to be a baker.  Although I think that having both the ability to read minds and control them at such high levels might be a little much.  Although you did mention the limitation of having a harder time reading other witch's minds.   Would probably be a better idea not to try and read other witch's minds in the first place.  Some of them are likely not to take it to kindly to have their privacy invading in such a manner.

Name
: Marisol Magdalena Ozorio

Nickname: Mari or Mary

Occupation: She has just recently arrived town to work as a house servant in the household of Doctor Timothy Welsh.

Sect
: Church. Human.
Orientation: Heterosexual (But she finds herself curious toward women)
Hair: Long and dark brown, almost black hair with a natural curl.
Eyes: Her mixed heritage gave her gray eyes.
Height: 5'8
Age: 21
Appearance: (Picture in the left.)

Marisol is a beautiful woman. Her skin tone is a tawny color skin that carries a faint golden hue. Her eyes are the color of the misty fog that settles through the land during the night. Her hair is long and carries a natural curl, while its color is a dark brown almost black. She has an hourglass figure that barely is shown through the dresses she wears. Her lips are full and a pinkish color, her teeth are all in place, and she is of good health.

Abilities: None.

Personality:
She is calm and collected, always trying to keep to herself instead of standing out. She is very shy and prefers to observe everything around her, but she is very kind. Unlike many of the church goers, she doesn't believe in the church and yet, she goes to it as to keep a good image and not be condemn by the townsfolk or her Master. She is very loyal to those she considers friends and likes to work. She isn't a romantic, life has changed her views about that, but she wishes that she could find someone who would look past the exterior and into the interior.

Marisol is very open minded for the period she lives in, being born an illegitimate child of mixed parentage made her be like that, although she never says any of her ideas to anyone. She believes that love is not something that anyone can control, nor lust either. Lust, of course, is a tough subject for her that she rather not even think about.

History:
She was born in England to a loving mother and a heartless, bastard of a father. Her mother a Spanish mistress who lived at the heart of London serviced a wealthy, married Englishman who beget her with a child. This child born from an un-sacred union and mixed parentage was Marisol. Growing up, Marisol got to see her father on different occasions, but she never got the chance of knowing what a real father was like. He never acknowledge her as his child and for the government as well as church, she was an illegitimate bastard.

She receive very little education, but she did learn how to read, write and speak fluently her mother's birth language as well
as English. Sadly, her status and being the daughter of a courtesan wasn't enough to save her from a harsh life. At the age of sixteen, after her mother's death, she began working as a servant to a wealthy noble family in London. Her time in that place became a living hell, since the Lord and Master of the house had taken up a fancy with her, like a naive girl she believed all of his words that only gave her pain and embarrassment at the end. She serviced the Lord until she was 20 years old. Having saved so many money, gave her the chance to escape the man and her life of servitude to that family. Buying a pass to cross the big ocean and go to live at the famous thirteen colonies, she prepared herself for a new life.
Of course, she hadn't expected to land in such a troubling place, but being a new settler she roamed trying to search from place to place a new home, always lying about her marital status so she could travel safe. Her journey ended when she arrived to Salem and found herself working as the house servant of Doctor Timothy Welsh.


Relationships:
*Timothy Welsh- Employer.

Name: Kenna Newlund
Player: Demik
Occupation: Sells flowers, fragrant dry herbs, and baskets and woven mats of all sizes out of a wagon she parks in town. The flowers and herbs come from a lovely garden she tends.
Sect: Solitary
Orientation: Straight
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Pale green
Height: 5'3"
Appearance: (See Left)
Abilities: Summoning. Kenna has the ability to summon creatures out of myth and legend as well as avatars of Gods and Goddesses (pieces of their power, not the full God/ess). As an example she could summon Bast (though Egyptian she is close to the cat Goddess) and benefit from her fierce protectiveness. Bast would attack whoever Kenna needs her to in order to protect herself. Or if she needs a bit of lightning she could summon Thor. It is an ability she inherited from her mother. While her mother is too ill to fully train her she gives her advice and has given her a series of several Books of Shadows which have been passed down in her family for generations. She has also inherited the family staff which aids in her summoning, making the summoning easier, but it isn't necessary. It is something she keeps hidden at home though of course. Every summoning takes it's toll on her; draining her energy away. The simplest ones like special faeries or small dragons will make her feel light-headed and tired but she can usually recover fairly quickly. The major ones, such as Bast, she has to concentrate hard on leaving her vulnerable plus they will completely wipe her out for hours or even days depending on how long and how much power she is able to summon from the Goddess. Often after such major summonings she will pass out for a time as well. Because her ability is so powerful and a danger to her (and occasionally others) she doesn't use it to it's fullest often. Her mother insists that she practice though - knowing the day will come when her daughter will need to use her powers. So she often summons a little pixie to help with her gardening. Also, summoning creatures or God/esses she is more familiar with is easier than summoning those she is not familiar with.
Minor Secondary Ability: She is an energy sponge, drawing little bits of energy from everything around her. It isn't something she can really control. It draws such small amounts that it is hardly any more noticeable than a person's normal draw. She simply picks up energy from everything, everywhere, all the time. This is one of the reasons she can do something as taxing as her summoning without it killing her or making her ill. It can also be a bit of a burden to her though since there are times she has too much energy and can't sleep.

Personality: Kenna is a private person, not really talking much about herself, but she is also warm and friendly. She always has a pretty smile for her customers and other passerby. She works hard all the time. When she isn't helping a customer decide which flowers to buy she is weaving her baskets and mats. Then, when she isn't selling things, she is tending her garden or gathering materials for her crafts.

History: Kenna is/was married to a good man however both he and her father disappeared when they were out cutting wood and got caught in a terrible storm. Both were strong and had special powers of their own though so even after nearly 3 years she still held out hope they would return. Her husband and his family was what brought her and her family to Salem 4 years before. Things were tense where her family had lived before thanks to a couple of incidents involving their powers. Her father and her husband's father met since both were woodcutters and woodcarvers. When Kenna and her future husband met and seemed to really get along his father suggested a marriage between their children. They had just built a new home and his oldest son had inherited the old one. It was a large home, suitable for their children to live in and begin a family as well as house her parents until they found a home for themselves. Since the kids didn't object too loudly it was settled.

So they had moved to Salem and lived there quietly and happily. Learning from their previous experience they kept to themselves more. Kenna found herself becoming very close and attached to her new husband. It was short-lived however since he disappeared just before their 1st anniversary. She missed both him and her father greatly. Her mother had always been a frail woman in body though her spirit was very strong. With her husband gone she became more ill. She was the one responsible for getting the garden started with Kenna's help. Kenna had simply expanded upon it to grow enough to make a living from it. Now she uses her father's old wagon and horse to sell her flowers. It made her happy to bring color to the town along with pleasant scents. One of her favorite things to weave is a floor mat which has dried herbs woven into it that way when someone steps on the mat it releases a pleasant fragrance. Another colorful thing in her life is her cat - Willow (see picture). She found her as a little kitten, trapped in the thick mud and reeds by the river a little over a year before. Since then Willow hardly ever leaves her side. She goes to town with her, she 'helps' her garden and weave, and she goes with her when she gets her materials from the forest and riverside.


Relationships: (None Currently) ((OOC: If someone would like to play her father or husband coming back that would be fun and if not that's perfectly fine as well. If you are interested in doing something like that just PM me and we can talk about it ;).))


Hiya everyone! Nim told me about this story and I couldn't resist. I've been away from E for awhile for many various reasons but finally decided I wanted to come back. I know her power is unusual and powerful but Nim can vouch for my ability to not godmod things like this. We've written together forever and have done many, many stories together *glomps my Nimmy*  ;D. I will hold to the limitations I've placed upon her. Hope you like her!

Occupation: Sells flowers, fragrant dry herbs, and baskets and woven mats of all sizes out of a wagon she parks in town. The flowers and herbs come from a lovely garden she tends.
Sect: Solitary
Orientation: Straight
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Pale green
Height: 5'3"
Appearance: (See Left)
Abilities: Summoning. Kenna has the ability to summon creatures out of myth and legend as well as avatars of Gods and Goddesses (pieces of their power, not the full God/ess). As an example she could summon Bast (though Egyptian she is close to the cat Goddess) and benefit from her fierce protectiveness. Bast would attack whoever Kenna needs her to in order to protect herself. Or if she needs a bit of lightning she could summon Thor. It is an ability she inherited from her mother. While her mother is too ill to fully train her she gives her advice and has given her a series of several Books of Shadows which have been passed down in her family for generations. She has also inherited the family staff which aids in her summoning, making the summoning easier, but it isn't necessary. It is something she keeps hidden at home though of course. Every summoning takes it's toll on her; draining her energy away. The simplest ones like special faeries or small dragons will make her feel light-headed and tired but she can usually recover fairly quickly. The major ones, such as Bast, she has to concentrate hard on leaving her vulnerable plus they will completely wipe her out for hours or even days depending on how long and how much power she is able to summon from the Goddess. Often after such major summonings she will pass out for a time as well. Because her ability is so powerful and a danger to her (and occasionally others) she doesn't use it to it's fullest often. Her mother insists that she practice though - knowing the day will come when her daughter will need to use her powers. So she often summons a little pixie to help with her gardening. Also, summoning creatures or God/esses she is more familiar with is easier than summoning those she is not familiar with.
Minor Secondary Ability: She is an energy sponge, drawing little bits of energy from everything around her. This is one of the reasons she can do something as taxing as her summoning without it killing her or making her ill. It can also be a bit of a burden to her though since there are times she has too much energy and can't sleep.

Personality: Kenna is a private person, not really talking much about herself, but she is also warm and friendly. She always has a pretty smile for her customers and other passerby. She works hard all the time. When she isn't helping a customer decide which flowers to buy she is weaving her baskets and mats. Then, when she isn't selling things, she is tending her garden or gathering materials for her crafts.

History: Kenna is/was married to a good man however both he and her father disappeared when they were out cutting wood and got caught in a terrible storm. Both were strong and had special powers of their own though so even after nearly 3 years she still held out hope they would return. Her husband and his family was what brought her and her family to Salem 4 years before. Things were tense where her family had lived before thanks to a couple of incidents involving their powers. Her father and her husband's father met since both were woodcutters and woodcarvers. When Kenna and her future husband met and seemed to really get along his father suggested a marriage between their children. They had just built a new home and his oldest son had inherited the old one. It was a large home, suitable for their children to live in and begin a family as well as house her parents until they found a home for themselves. Since the kids didn't object too loudly it was settled.

So they had moved to Salem and lived there quietly and happily. Learning from their previous experience they kept to themselves more. Kenna found herself becoming very close and attached to her new husband. It was short-lived however since he disappeared just before their 1st anniversary. She missed both him and her father greatly. Her mother had always been a frail woman in body though her spirit was very strong. With her husband gone she became more ill. She was the one responsible for getting the garden started with Kenna's help. Kenna had simply expanded upon it to grow enough to make a living from it. Now she uses her father's old wagon and horse to sell her flowers. It made her happy to bring color to the town along with pleasant scents. One of her favorite things to weave is a floor mat which has dried herbs woven into it that way when someone steps on the mat it releases a pleasant fragrance. Another colorful thing in her life is her cat - Willow (see picture). She found her as a little kitten, trapped in the thick mud and reeds by the river a little over a year before. Since then Willow hardly ever leaves her side. She goes to town with her, she 'helps' her garden and weave, and she goes with her when she gets her materials from the forest and riverside.


Relationships: (None Currently) ((OOC: If someone would like to play her father or husband coming back that would be fun and if not that's perfectly fine as well. If you are interested in doing something like that just PM me and we can talk about it ;).))


Hiya everyone! Nim told me about this story and I couldn't resist. I've been away from E for awhile for many various reasons but finally decided I wanted to come back. I know her power is unusual and powerful but Nim can vouch for my ability to not godmod things like this. We've written together forever and have done many, many stories together *glomps my Nimmy*  ;D. I will hold to the limitations I've placed upon her. Hope you like her!

I think she looks good and you have my approval with one note.  Sapping energy from Witches could have backlash.  So I would keep it to random townsfolk unless given permission from characters/players.

Koolies! *Dances* Yeah, I forgot to put in that it isn't really a conscious thing she controls. It's just something she does naturally and it's such small amounts that very few would think anything of it. Sometimes if she's really wiped she might go into the forest or sit by the river somewhere quiet just to sit and let her energy replenish but  she really doesn't have any control over it yet. Maybe with training... and even then it's a pretty big maybe. Plus even if she could control it she's not one who would just go around sapping people of their energy anyway... unless they really deserved it. It's just a natural part of her. I was just kinda putting it in to explain why she is able to do something so spectacular and naturally draining without it killing her. If you like I'll edit it to reflect that.

So I'll be bringing her in soon. Nim and I have plotted her grand entrance into the story. *Shifty eyes* Muahahaha. ;D So if I haven't posted in a couple days don't worry I am coming I just need to wait for the right moment to pounce... er, I mean join in.

Okay. Either you can edit it, or we can say certain witches would sense it and block it out (or all of them) unless they are willing.  that aspect of her power sounds like psychic vampirism.  Although a few characters may emit energy.  My Character Matthew controls and Manipulates weather and has quite a bit control over his emotions and energies. He perhaps can help.

Name: Jason Thurston
Player Name:Seekeroftruth22
Nickname:Jason
Occupation: craftsmen (Architect)
Sect: human
Orientation: straight
Hair: sandy blond
Eyes: stormy grey
Height: 210 lb
Age:
Appearance: look below
Abilities:none hes human XD

Personality: Jason is one of the most loyal people in the world, if you were his friend he would be the guy to call to help you get rid of the body's XD  it takes a while to earn his trust because of his past but once he accepts you there is only a few things that could make him turn on you but the main one is if they hurt Charity Daniels in any way. when it comes to his work Jason is a perfectionist, he honors the memory of his teacher and the man that was a father figure to him by making sure his work is as close to perfect as he had make it.

History: Jason is the only son of the town drunk, and what a mean drunk he was. his mother died in child birth and his father always blamed him for her death and if Jason was there while he was drunk Jason would get a beating so Jason would spend every spare moment he had at Mr.Daniels house playing with Charity, from a young age he had known he like her a lot but he never told any one.

Jason always loved playing hide and seek but Charity was the best hider he had ever played with  and some of the best times of his life were in those woods with her. one day he found Mr.Daniels working and he made a comment about the model house he was making, there was a designed flaw in one of the corner beams that would cause the house to colapse if it was built that way, that was when Mr.Daniels realised that Jason had a natural talent for being a Architect, from then on he became the mans apprentice but Mr.Daniels understood a childs need to play so he often sent Jason off to play with Charity when there was no pressing work to be done.

one day while the two kids were playing they had been playing to close to a beavers den and it had jumped at Charity but luckly he was able to knoc it away from her and scare it off but when he turned to Charity he say her blinking in and out of visibility at first he thought she had been hurt by somehting but quickly realised she had the power to turn invisable. after he saw her like that she ran away from him but he followed her with out even a moments pause, only after he had convinced her he wasn't going to tell any one and that they were still the best of friends did she stop trying to run away from him. to this day he has told no one and they have never been far from each other since.

Mr.Daniels hurt his back one day on the job and with no sons he turned his shop over to Jason with one condition, that he would alway take care of Charity which Jason told Mr.Daniels that he loved Charity and would take care of her no matter what.

Relationships: Charity Daniels (hes in love with her but doesn't want to risk there friendship, which he values more then all the gold in the world.)

Name: Charity Daniels

Occupation: Servant to the Jason Thurston (The Craftsman)

Sect: Church

Orientation: Straight

Hair: Brunette

Eyes: Sinfully Green

Height:  5'4"

Appearance: (Pictured above) Charity while average height is slightly underweight. Her dark locks curl ever so
lightly around her shoulders. She has a straight posture, something her mother instilled on her.

Abilities:

Obfuscation: She has the ability to become near invisible. So long as she stands still and wills it she can blend in with her surroundings, something akin to a chameleon, though someone would have to look hard to find her. If she moves too much the illusion is shattered.

Charity is able to control it pretty easily, though when she is too emotional or scared her powers take on a mind of their own and she cannot control them.

Personality: Charity is a fairly serious woman when it comes  down to work, she loves to have fun and explore the woods when she isn't having to take care of things at home however. Her two younger siblings are much more free spirited, and she plans on making sure they can. She's fiercely protective of her family and friends, and would do anything to keep them safe.

History: Charity is the oldest of three girls. Her parents were much older when they had their children, which lead to health problems in her mother. Her father worked as the head Craftsman. She helped a little around the shop, keeping the books for her father and cleaning up.

When she turned 13 strange things started to happen. She found that when she was playing hide and seek with Jason, there were times he seemed to look right through her. Other times, she'd walk down stairs from the loft to get something to drink, but neither of her parents seemed to see her. Scared she hid what she was from her parents, knowing what it could do to them, and what others would do to her.

With no sons, Mr. Dainels passed his shop on to his apprentice Jason Thurston, when he'd injured his back. Charity had known Jason since they were children, he'd pull her hair, and she'd run away crying. They spent much time in the woods, playing games or running from "rabid" bunnies. She stayed on, helping him, taking up the position to help out.

Jason was the only one who really knew who or what Charity was. One day when they were kids they'd been playing by the creek and a beaver jumped out at her. Jason chased it away but when he turned around, Charity was blinking in and out of visibility. She was so scared, she ran away but he caught up with her. She had expected for him to chase her away or tell the adults, but he didn't, in fact their friendship had never been stronger.

Relationships: Jason Thurston (Secret Crush at-least)

I hate to say anything to the contrary but all living beings and creatures give off energy.  Granted some more than others but it is always there none the less.




Drools over Demik's character... oh wait... erm... loves on Demiks character.  Loved everything about her.  And yes I can vouch for her evil ways.   >:)

Demik your character is cleared through me.  Please go ahead and PM it to ~RR~ so he can get it situated into the approved character list.
