Velika Alena. (Both are first names to mean Wonderful Light. Heh.)Species:
Firebird. (Russian Folklore)Gender:
Whatever she can get her hands on.Relationship Status:
Much like her firebird colors, she has natural reddish/orange hair. But if you call her a ginger, she WILL hurt you. Her eyes are a slate grey color with a bit of blue mixed in there. She often gets complimented on her eyes so if you want to give her one, make sure it's not her eyes. She finds that so unoriginal. The tips of her hair reach just above her nipples which she often wears down. It's got a natural wave to it but if she had her way, she would want to have straight hair. Her form is slender but she is a bit on the buxom side. Not top heavy by any means. She's got curvy hips which people like to call child bearing which always gets on her nerves. Her rear is enough for a handful and she's got what she calls back dimples right above it. She has no tattoos or piercings and probably won't ever get any even though she's contemplated the fact. She keeps her nails manicured with the tips of them always in red. The only jewelry she does wear is a ruby ring on her middle finger on her right hand.Ons and Offs:

Offs: Clingy, Stoic, and Bland.History:
The Firebird in Russian/Slavic folklore is a magical glowing bird from a faraway land, which is both a blessing and a bringer of doom to its captor.
The Firebird is described as a large bird with majestic plumage that glows brightly emitting red, orange, and yellow light, like a bonfire that is just past the turbulent flame. The feathers do not cease glowing if removed, and one feather can light a large room if not concealed. In later iconography, the form of the Firebird is usually that of a smallish fire-colored peacock, complete with a crest on its head and tail feathers with glowing "eyes".
Of course that's all fairy tales right? Wrong. Firebirds do exist and she's living proof of that. She had to leave her country and resurface elsewhere as there seemed to be a shortage of people who believed in her. She couldn't just leave her feathers everywhere for skeptical people to find and not do anything with. After all, leaving her feathers around were supposed to lead to people on a quest. Now, she's at Castle Rogue and after hearing about it and wondered if she should just start over. It's not like these people here knew of what she was. But, they were like her and having no family, she thought maybe this could be the chance to have a family.
