Liza Matthews [Finished]

Post  Liza Matthews on Sat May 23, 2015 5:51 pm

Name: Liza Matthews

Age: 15

God Parent: Enyo

Mortal Family: Trevor Matthews (Father: Alive), Alison Morgan (Step-Mom: Alive) Jack Matthews (Brother: Alive), Matt Matthews (Brother: Alive), Seth (Brother: Alive) Grace Matthews (Sister: Deceased).

Years in Camp: 3


History: Well, Liza was the first born in her family. Her mother obviously she did not know of and her dad was a man ill suited to take care of a baby who was named Trevor Matthews. Liza wasn't raised like a kid should be properly raised. Her dad would often sneak out at night to drink, gamble, and do all other sorts of stuff. He didn't start this problem until he found out that he was the father of a demigod and the goddess he had his daughter with was Enyo, a goddess of war. Trevor did take care of Liza though at times. He fed her, put her to bed, burped her, and changed her diaper. He really didn't do anything more. He never read to her at bed time (not like that would help since she is terrible at reading since she has dyslexia and can't stay focused because of her ADHD.) One time, somebody was foolish enough to fall in love with her dad. That woman was named Alison Morgan. Liza suspects that she was also drunk the night her dad met her or something but somehow, Alison liked her dad. Despite all the drugs he was taking, his drinking problem, and all that stuff, she still loved him. In fact, she loved him so much that she wanted to have kids with Trevor. Liza's dad agreed for some reason. (I mean seriously. Who wants to have a kid when he could barely take care of one?) Liza was 3 at the time when her brother Jack was born. Alison helped out with Jack a lot. Once Jack was about 1, Matt was born. Liza was 4. 4 years later, yet another brother was born. His name was Seth. Now, you would think that after 4 kids, it would be enough right? Well apparently either Alison and Trevor liked the idea about having a lot of kids or they were just trying to get a girl. Liza would never understand how Alison and Trevor's minds worked. Finally another, 4 years later after Seth was born and Liza was 12, a baby girl was born. She was named Grace but unfortunately she was born with a kind of health condition that had her be in the hospital until she got better. Three days after baby Grace was hospitalized she died in the middle of the night. Alison, Trevor, and the rest of the family was heart broken and Trevor and Alison never tried for another baby again. During the school year, Liza got progressively worse and worse at school. The reading material was getting much harder and she couldn't concentrate very well with her ADHD. She was always feeling stupid in class and almost always was in danger of going to summer school but always seemed to grab hold of the grades she had to receive to not go to summer school. All throughout her life, Liza has been taking free karate lessons from her friend's father. He knew about the kind of financial situation her family was in and the kind of parents her dad and step-mom were. Liza has always wanted to try karate and with her friend, she was luckily able to take it. Her parents never really cared when she got home so it was okay for her to do her lessons however long she wanted. Eventually, there was that one fateful day in a demigod's life when something would drive them to camp. Liza was walking home from her karate class when she saw something in the distance. It was a creature that Liza has not heard of. It was new to her. It didn't look very... friendly though. In fact, it looked terrifying. She instantly started running. She didn't even know if it was going after her. She just knew that it was a terrifying creature and that she wanted to get away from it as soon as possible. Miraculously, perhaps by fate, she at age 12, came upon half-blood hill. A camper was keeping watch when he saw that Liza was running and a monster was trailing close behind her. The monster flew closer to her. She could see that there were sharp claws. Liza saw somebody motioning for her to come up to the hill and so she started running up to her. The monster flew closer to her and slashed at her calf and causing her to trip. The demigod keeping watch shot a celestial bronze tipped arrow at the monster careful not to hit Liza and the monster disintegrated into dust. Liza breathed heavily and felt the dust of the monster drop down on her. She got up and brushed off the grass and dirt on her clothes. The demigod rushed over to her and asked if she was alright. She took a look at her calf which had a gash on it. The Apollo child noticed it too and handed her some ambrosia. Liza was told to eat it and it tasted wonderful. It seemed to make the injury lessen but not heal completely. She was taken to the camp to get it bandaged. Liza was told that she was a demigod and went into camp half blood. She instantly fell in love with the place. She showed a high aptitude for weapons and fighting so she was expected to be a child of Ares but when she got claimed, they found out that she was a child of not Ares but Enyo. While spending her 3 years at camp, she had many friends who were mostly Hephaestus kids who taught her how to make her own weapons and such. While Liza was at camp, she decided from year one that she would be a year round camper since it wasn't like her parents would miss her or anything.

Physical Appearance: Liza has long dark brown hair. She has brown eyes and is fair skinned. She looks as beautiful to be an Aphrodite kid really. Liza usually wears a tan jacket with a tank top. She also wears shorts. She would never be caught dead in a skirt or a dress. Liza will either wear combat boots or tennis shoes.

Personality: Liza is generally a nice girl. She is pretty tough too. Anybody would describe her as brave. Liza however can be very aggressive and is agitated pretty easily. When she gets angry she does tend to release her anger just like any Enyo kid would. With fighting and lots of shouting. Liza, as a child of Enyo, loves power. it would sound like an evil thing but she can't help it. Even when she was younger she would take karate lessons to obtain more power but then, she didn't even know that it was the want for power for why she was taking them. Sometimes, that feeling is just something she doesn't even realize she has.

Fatal Flaw: Ambition for power. Liza is very ambitious especially when it comes to power. She will work to probably her death to achieve as much power as she can. The terrible thing is that she would even push her friends out of the way to achieve power. This could even lead to her turning to the dark side just to achieve power.

Talents: Liza is extremely talented at mainly close combat weapons and some mid-ranged weapons. She is good at long ranged weapons but not as good as she is at the other close combat or melee ones.

Weapons: Liza has no weapon that she always keeps on her.

Other: Tellumkinisis. This is an ability Enyo is known to possess. It was passed down to Liza. Instead of summoning any weapon to her side like Enyo could, since Liza is a demigod, only having a portion of her power, she can summon weapons that are usually trained at camp half blood such as celestial bronze swords, daggers, bows, and celestial bronze tipped arrows. These weapons are generated from Liza's energy. Summoning even 5 weapons would cause her to feel tired. Overdoing her power would definitely cause her to even pass out since it's not teleporting a weapon but creating them from her energy.

Everything is alright except the Tellumkinisis. I'm not saying you have to get rid of it or anything, but it's a very broad subject. Say like which kind of weapons and how much, because powers do have their limits and will tire the user down.

So just give me specifics on that and I'll say approved!

Alright, approved! Just be cautious of how you use this power, since it is a newer one to this site!

Also, if another Staff Member decides to say something about this profile fix it immediately. Though I haven't seen one on in about a day, so you can go ahead and RP.

I have to say, kudos for that detailed history. I'm pretty impressed. However, I'm not sure one of Hades' torturers would have any reason to go after Liza. Perhaps you could find a different monster to go after her?

Looks like you need one more sentence in the fatal flaw section. Question: Would she goes as far as pushing away her friends in the pursuit of power? You could go into a few more specifics about it and how it affects her interactions with other people. And perhaps tie it in more with the personality section. After all, the fatal flaw is basically the personality's biggest shortcoming, so therefore a decently large part of it.

Like Andrew said, at what point would her powers tire her out/stop working for a while from too much use? You don't have to be super specific about it, because with powers and magicky stuff it's not always easy to pinpoint exactly, so you can just give us a general idea of how often she can poof her weapons in and out of existence if you want. Oh yeah, about that, do they just kinda materialize from nowhere? Hammerspace? The CHB weapon shed? Australia?

That's all I've got to say, so yup. You've done a pretty good job with this app. *thumbs up*
