Josephine Clarring Race:
Human, probably. No one is quite sure, not even her fatherOccupation:
Merchant's daughter, substitute shop keeperOrientation:
Adventure, strength in character or physical strength, impish folk, suggestive banter and magic tricks.Offs :
Boring things, weakness, failure, being tied up and goody-two-shoes folk.Favorite Mode of Attack:
When she wants something, Josephine uses her charm and wit. She has a way with people and can be both wonderful or absolutely hateful.
She gets her ammunition from her listening and conversational skills. Josephine knows how to make people feel wanted and valuable, caring about the everyday trials and nuances of their lives. She's not the most empathetic of people, but the interest and care is genuine.
Josephine carries a dagger with her just in case of emergencies.Height :
Even and well-proportioned.Description :
Josephine has a very elegant build. She may not be tall, but she gives off the illusion of being so with her graceful neck and slender limbs. She is neither very thin or very voluptuous, but her curves are very soft and well proportioned. Another notable thing about her is that the arches of her feet are very high.
Josephine is usually clad in dresses with long flowing skirts but provocative necklines. She enjoys lace, but the accessory she loves the most are feathers, which she wears as earrings and in her silvery hair. Personality :
While Josephine may have the complexion and the hands of a noblewoman, she's no prim lady. She's the girl next door, the older sister you never had who is always willing to lend an ear and offer support to her friends. Her sense of duty isn't very strong, and can be found wandering around and outside of Amberdale instead of manning her father's shop.
Her father calls her 'his little bird' because of her free spirit, but for some reason insists she stays in town while he and her siblings travel the country.
It's her frustration with this that she tends to find her way in to situations and places (and people) she probably shouldn't be in. She absolutely adores the company of those she can get in to trouble with.
Gossip is probably her one true vice. She loves stories and information. Good stories about true adventure don't come to Amberdale often, so she settles for what she can get, which is usually just idle gossip about her fellow townsfolk. Because of her cravings, she frequents the tavern and drinks with friends and strangers alike.Story :
The Clarring family have not been a fixture in Amberdale very long, having only moved in to town only three years ago. The first thing the townsfolk noticed was that there was no Mrs. Clarring, and Martin Clarring's children all looked so different! They all stuck out like sore thumbs, but over time they all saw how much and how often he devours bar maids, and that mystery was solved.
The Clarring family buisness doesn't seem to have a fixed base of operations, as Josephine's family and their partners (and sometimes Josephine) travels frequently, but they keep a small store in town just to maximise their income.
Clarring's Oddities sells all sorts of knickknacks, books and assortments of goods from all over the country, and sometimes from other continents, things that common towns folk, less travelled merchants and newbie adventurers might find inspiring or intriguing. Small things that Martin Clarring finds on his trips outside of Amberdale.
Out of her family of six, Josephine is the one that stays home the most, taking care of their home and the store of trinkets.
Martin Clarring is a fairly wealthy man, at least compared to most of the people who consider Amberdale home, and his home and store always has at least one caretaker at all times, excluding Josephine.
