//- Details -\\Physical Description:
Domino is slightly taller than average with (typically) dark brown hair and Hispanic features inherited from her father. Her physique is toned with a good balance of curves and muscle, having been toned by her active lifestyle and natural athleticism. She's very casual and urban in terms of style and unrepentantly tomboyish. Sneakers, snapbacks and fitted caps, hoodies... she loves it all. In fact when looking for signs of vanity in the youngster it is most easily recognized in her large and well cared for sneaker collection--talk about obsessive! Dresses and skirts are things to be avoided if at all possible, purses are absolute 'hell no's, and don't even get her started on heels. Don't misunderstand though, Domino can clean up nice when necessary but if it isn't necessary, it isn't happening. She's not shy or overly body conscious but even so she doesn't care if you think she looks like a boy or if you're surprised when she dresses up or whatever and will promptly tell you what you and your observation/opinion can go and do. Jewelry is judged on a case by case basis but simpler is usually better with her and she is not fond of yellow gold and thus usually will not wear it.
Tattoo-wise, Domino sports a large koi fish tattoo on her back, the indigo feathers of her Freedom Feather rite that match her sisters, and a newer skull and roses tattoo that covers her left forearm. She has plans for more but is taking it a piece at a time since she has no desire to cover her skin in meaningless images. She also has her ears pierced several times each, her navel pierced, and her left nostril is pierced with a tiny stud as well. Domino speaks American English with the distinctive remnants of a posh accent (the Queen's English). Personality:
First things first, don't let the image fool you. Domino is a bright kid who is well aware of what she wants while being unafraid to go and get it. She is strong-willed and opinionated and not afraid to speak up when she needs or wants to do so. Having started out early in her life having to look out for numero uno, she's naturally cultivated a way of walking amongst people in a way that is both confident and very chill. She seems to fit naturally into the ebb and flow of city life despite walking to her own beat and while she's no uber calculating con-artist or slick silver-tongued devil, she possesses a very raw and instinctive charm that allows her to freely interact with a wide range of individuals. She doesn't try and win people over however, but rather only ever strives to be herself regardless of the circumstances. It makes her seem a little odd and, at times, quirky, but her keen awareness and intuitive nature tend to balance that out.
Exuberant and enthusiastic about life in general, Domino is very energetic. When she's up she's up! and when she's not, you'll notice the difference right off. Maybe its all the Mountain Dew and Doritos or maybe its something else but there are times when sitting still is a real chore. That said, when she does settle down she comes off as almost feline, poised just so but able to spring back into action in a moment. Generally curious (and even just plain nosy to a degree), she is ever aware of her surroundings and tuned into those nearby, she always wants to know who, what, when, where, why, and how. Even when she knows it's none of her business she can't help but ask that extra question or go digging where she doesn't belong and she can be amazingly persistent. It's gotten her into trouble before but even the awareness of potential consequences doesn't seem to deter her from finding out what she wants to know. To say that she can be impulsive and more than a little reckless is an understatement really. She often forgets to look before she leaps and there's no doubt with the number of times she's landed nimbly on her feet despite what might have been waiting for her, Domino is charmed. Then again, with her tendency to act before she thinks, it is a good thing that she's proven to be resourceful and adaptable. And fast.
For Domino art is the filter of her life. All her emotions, be they joy, laughter, confusion, hurt, anger or anything in between, are put into her art. From freerunning to skateboarding or even sparring, from drawing to painting, singing to dancing... all of it allows her to process and decompress. There are times when she will opt to keep her peace, to save the truth of her feelings for something more private, and it is in these things that such feelings emerge. Otherwise she's playful, engaging, attentive, and genuine but with a wicked temper and a goofy sense of humor.History:
Born in London in 1993, Domino is missing large chunks of the childhood memories most seem to come away with. She is sure she lived through the usual milestones but their documentation is spotty at best and her mind seems intent upon protecting her--or else someone has tampered with her memory. What is known is this: Domino's mother was like an uncaged exotic bird. Gorgeous to look at, alluring, and entertaining... until she felt the urge to fly away to elsewhere and leave you with memories and mementos that faded no matter how much you tried to hang on to them. This was not a trait reserved specifically for her offspring but rather a pervasive trait that reared its head in all aspects of her life. As a hunter she preferred action to contemplation, and frequently went off half cocked if only to indulge in the rush of adrenaline that filled her. Luckily the female was well suited to her own faults, something her success rate with the supernatural details rather obviously. For Domino however, all this is much less important than the fact that the woman seemed to lack some key maternal trait that would have kept her at home rather than send her rushing right back out into danger as soon as she was able. Domino can't even recall the color of her mother's eyes though her sister tells her they were a blue so dark they looked nearly purple in the right light, eyes that oddly had matched the color of her scales. She had also been blonde, athletic, and with a sun-kissed tan that never faded despite the time of year in her human form. Domino remembers that much because of the picture taped to the inside of her journal that she can't quite bring herself to throw away. The picture shows the woman holding a toddler that is supposedly her and laughing so hard that her eyes are closed. Domino doesn't remember the laughter.
What Domino does remember is the hunger. The gnawing constant ache that makes it hard to think of anything else. She's not exactly sure of the details but eventually the then 7 year old figured out a way to deal with that. It apparently involved a lot of climbing in and out of windows she could reach. Which was precisely how she was found once someone seemed to recall that her mother should have checked in sometime ago and hadn't. Trying to slither back into her flat through the rigged window she'd set up, Domino was caught mid-wriggle by an entirely unfamiliar face. Which of course prompted the flashing of a grin that was pure innocence--note her missing tooth at the time for added effect--even while her eyes flashed with awareness that far surpassed her chronological age.
Just like that months of being on her own ended in a rapid whirl. Things transpired too quickly for her to grasp everything but Domino was the sort of kid that would pay attention and then later regurgitate the very words you'd thought she'd slept through, so while she didn't know everything, she knew much more than they had intended for her to know right away. Like the fact that her mother was missing and her blood had been found at the site of a demonic ritual. And the fact that it was assumed she was dead. Or that she apparently had other family out there... maybe?
That last bit of info seemed uncertain for a time but eventually it was verified that yes, Domino had an older sister, and yes, she would gladly take her in. This news terrified the hell out of the kid who had become somewhat attached to the woman who'd found her in the first place and there were several times she tried to point out she didn't want to go--even going so far as to present her case complete with charts and diagrams. When that didn't work she tried running away, several times, but the spies were everywhere in the Roost and a while she was fast as hell, the place was filled with some of the best hunters in the world. She didn't stand a chance.
Eventually Domino would indeed be handed over to her sister, Nathalia. The first meeting did not go well and to this day it is the one and only time Domino can recall her sister looking entirely out of her depth. There was even fidgeting! Naturally the two of them got into an argument--over what they still don't agree--and by the end it was a shouting match until it ended abruptly with both of them going stubbornly quiet. Nathalia smiled first after that though and for some reason Domino couldn't help but grin--something that seems to have persisted where their fights come into play--and just like that there was... less tension. Though things were not perfect from there on. Not even close. Domino hated that Nathalia left her for work and for a time was plagued by nightmares she tried to hide. Eventually the two would fess up to one another and come to an agreement that they would never lie to each other no matter what--which has worked out for the best despite the number of shouting matches had. Or the first time that Domino lept upon her sister intending to tackle her and discovered just how fragile she was not. Thankfully nothing was broken in the learning of that lesson, though her pride was bruised for a time.
The more normal aspects of Domino's life were just that, normal--errr... if you don't count the various times she ended up in trouble or pulling some stunt her sister found about later (she could never hide anything from her!). It became clear she was into art and music hardcore and though Nathalia wasn't above making her work for it, especially if she'd gotten in trouble recently, she wanted for nothing. When she was 10 she asked to learn martial arts stating her reason as wanting to be able to protect herself in case she was left alone again. Nathalia looked at her then and though Domino got the feeling there was something her sister wanted to say, all she said was ok. For a time she was sent to generic lessons but by the time she was 13 (following her embarrassing attempt to jump Nathalia) she was moved to training sessions with her sister and the guys that worked for her which were... eye opening, to say the least.
It had become clear early on that the sisters held opposing views as far as hunting and the Eternal Struggle went. Domino wanted nothing to do with any of it but Nathalia felt she had a responsibility to inform herself fully at the very least and then make a decision. It took some time but eventually a deal was reached between the two of them when she was 16 and entering her last year of high school. Nathalia would leave her be on the subject but when Domino turned 25 she would have to train/apprentice for a minimum of 2 years. If she wanted to simply hide after that then that was her choice and Nathalia would respect it. Domino hadn't wanted to agree to even that at first but since she had never been able to beat her sister in... well... anything, she'd had little choice but to take the deal. She'd tried just letting herself pass out but Nathalia would just wait until she regained consciousness to start in on her again. The upside to this was that the teen found herself handed even more freedom because Nathalia wanted no excuses when it came time for her to man up and do her duty.
At the age of 17, Domino graduated from high school a year early and opted to go to university in New York. Now more than seven years later she is working on an art degree (her second bachelors) between her travels, various gigs, nighttime activities, and everything else. She is aware of her fast approaching deadline and has been searching like hell for a legitimate excuse to get out of the ridiculous deal she was bullied into but so far its a no go. Then again, maybe she should be looking for a suitable mentor since she knows for sure that she and her sister should not be partners. Nathalia seconds this idea.Family:
. Loves her to death and looks up to her.
Mother, deceased. Domino harbors quite a lot of resentment toward the woman who took off and left her behind.Likes:
Going out, sleeping in, cuddling, affection, youtube, video gaming, her sister, making weird concoctions, dancing, singing, djing, music, graffiti art, graphics, learning new things, sweets (she always has some), Mt Dew, Doritos, loud colors, mma (watching), kids (mentorship and art programs, etc)Dislikes:
Mentions of her mother, boredom, manual labor, pointless tasks and busy work, "training", morning classes, being on someone else's schedule, too many veggies, hearing about "rules" in art or music, people who feel determined to ruin someone else's fun, anything relating to the InfernalsHobbies:
Freerunning, skateboarding, poker, partying, making mixes, graffiti art/mural paintingPersonal Goal:
To live her life as a normal person and escape all this hunter bull. Unfortunately she's not sure that's possible.
Secretly she has a developing desire to capture the harsh reality of the Eternal Struggle in her artwork--disguised of course from the unsuspecting.Fears & Phobias:
Domino truly fears her draconic nature. She's not convinced that their kind is naturally any better than the other sorts they hunt and wishes like hell that she was simply human. In fact, she worries that one day she will be more animal than human. She is also afraid of abandonment.Ons & Offs:
Domino is flirtatious, likes to tease, and is a switch through and through. She's drawn to older partners, though that is more for their experience and maturity than their chronological age, and has more experience with women as far as romantic entanglements but she is sexually attracted to people of all persuasions. She has never been with another dragon and is simultaneously wary of the idea and curious. She is open to kinks.
Player offs are character offs.

--> 3: Celerity - For a moment gain speed beyond what normal sight could track.

--> 1: Shadowmeld - When you activate this power you may stand completely still and simply vanish, becoming completely invisible to the naked eye. When this power is used during the night or other low light situations your form becomes blurred and greatly increases your ability to move unseen.
