Daquiri Laurens

Post  Cerulaen on Tue Jun 25, 2013 2:48 pm

I apologize in advance for my additions to your format. I'm pretty anal about how my character profiles are set up, and this just makes it easier for me to look at :-)




 
NameDaquiri Laurens (duh-KEER-ee)
Age14
God ParentAphrodite
Mortal FamilyTim Laurens (biological father—deceased), No permanent family—a foster child
Years in Camp0 (just arrived)
Physical AppearanceHair: Strawberry blonde (red-gold), waist-length hair; naturally straight, and often worn in side braid
Eyes: Bright blue (change to blue-grey or dark blue depending on the light)
Physique: 5’, curvy, decently large cleavage,  some muscle in arms, naturally muscular legs, thin—toned, but not ripped
Facial: Very pale skin, no freckles, small dimple in chin, heart-shaped mouth, long eyelashes
Makeup: Black-brown mascara, grey eyeliner, sometimes wears lip gloss or tint
Clothing StyleVery artsy, bold and boho—off-the-shoulder shirts; matelot-style skinny jeans and shorts, and occasionally maxi or high-low skirts; brown combat boots with flower-print interlining, gladiator sandals, or ankle boots; not unusual to be seen wearing suspenders. You will often find her in something vintage with lace, fedoras, bucket hats, wrap-around headbands and--possibly her favorite--belly shirts.
PersonalityVery closed off to people she doesn’t know. She’s not shy, but wary of becoming close to anyone for fear of losing them. She hardly lets anyone in, and almost constantly has a demeanor of defiance. She has very high standards of herself, and therefore of other people. It’s very difficult for her to accept making a mistake or being criticized, and will often lash out at anyone who does so. Very conscientious of her surroundings and craves order in almost everything. A skeptic. You'll really want to keep from pissing this one off--she's got a temper that could put a Tasmanian Devil to shame. Expect a ready string of insults if you plan on conversing with this red-head.
Fatal FlawPerfectionism—Hates to be anything less than the best in just about everything, to point where she'll go to no end to achieve that perfection. It isn't so much about being competitive, however, as it is about keeping her composure together and wanting people to see her as someone/thing unattainable. This also is where much of her disdain for other people stems from--she sees the natural imperfection in everyone else and doesn't want to associate with it. This leads to her wanting to do everything herself and absolutely refusing help from anyone else. Obviously, this doesn't make going up against big baddies very easy.
TalentsHas an uncanny ability of getting out of tight situations—has a quick wit, and being small and flexible can really come in handy; natural sense of defense—has very keen reflexes; can twist her words to convince people to do almost anything (charmspeak)—most powerful when she speaks in French
WeaponsSmall celestial bronze dagger (if not kept in her boot, kept in a sheath strapped to her leg), pepper spray—mainly uses her charmspeak to aid her in her fighting, using her dagger to finish them off
Brief History (Backstory) She remembers very little of her father. When she was only 5, he died in the burning of a building on duty as a fireman in Chesapeake, Virginia. With no other relations, living or otherwise, Daquiri was sent to an orphanage. At the age of 7, she entered the foster care program, and was constantly being moved around to new foster parents because of how closed off she was, refusing to open up to anyone and constantly being difficult. She went through some very bad experiences in foster care, including mild physical abuse, as well as some very harsh verbal. Because of it, she is very insecure of herself, despite her constant fight for composure. Around the age of 12, she began to have small occurrences with monsters, and thus began to constantly carry her dagger and pepper spray. Over the years, she discovered that her words seemed to have some kind of power over people, but she usually attributed this to her attractiveness. However, she began to develop it more when she discovered it worked against monsters. Despite her knowledge of possessing some kind of power, she is unaware of her parentage, and therefore resists when a satyr finds her and tries to convince her to come to Camp Half-Blood. However, he leaves her a bronze dagger and continues to secretly watch over her until her 14th birthday, on which a large monster attacks her. She is knocked unconscious; the satyr defeats the monster and takes her to Camp Half-Blood. She dislikes being there, but has nowhere else to go and therefore no choice but to stay.
OtherLoves peacocks, roses, and writing. Keeps a journal to let out the feelings that she constantly bottles up inside. Theme Songs: Numb by Linkin Park, Stand in the Rain by Superchick

The app looks good but it's in the wrong section. I'll have an admin or Lily move it to the correct spot since I have not been bestowed my modship powers. And the Charmspeak thing is really rare as of right now we don't have anyone with those abilities so you should be good to go on it.

That's because we have no active Aphrodite kids. I like the table thing, very aesthetically pleasing to the ocd eye. I'm ok with the charmspeak so long as you don't over do it and all that. It looks good to me, just wait for another admin/mod to weigh in.

Yeaaah, I realized it was in the wrong place when I checked up on it later, but I didn't know how to change it, lawl... Sorry! But yeah, the table got a little messed up when it was posted, I think some of the lines didn't go through... But I definitely get a bit OCD when it comes to my writing :-)
