__________________IN-DEPTH STUFF

Physical Description
Completely lacking in melanin, Misae has stark white skin and stark white hair, including her eyelashes and eyebrows. Her almond eyes are a pale violet color. She wears her thick, curly hair past her shoulders, generally braided into five braids before being brought together into a ponytail. The ends of each braid are decorated with a silver hoop. She has a lithe, slender body and small breasts.

In the daytime, she covers up almost completely when outdoors, even wearing a head wrap, because she burns easily and badly and the sun hurts her eyes. She also suffers from poor vision. As a result, she much prefers the night!

Personality
Misae is self-conscious of her appearance, though one would never know it from the quiet confidence she exudes. As someone who has lost everything and has little left to lose, Misae can come across as rather fearless--she's not afraid of taking a risk for the greater good. In fact, she feels like she has more to lose by not taking risks, because it was by taking a huge risk that she got free.

Misae is clever, and though she lacks physical strength, she uses words as her sword. She is also a planner. She is not a very impulsive person, instead liking to carefully plan out her next move before putting it into action. She is highly observant of the world around her, a survival skill she learned in slavery--because it was only by being observant and patient that she escaped, rather than jumping the gun and being hasty.

She hides her cunning, however, behind a kind, serene, and nurturing personality that can grow rather bubbly when she's excited. Which isn't to say that isn't who she is, because that is her at her core. She loves people, and wants to believe the best of people, but circumstance has made her more world-weary than she was when she was younger. With those she is close to, she can be rather open and honest--about most things. She had trouble expressing emotions that make her feel vulnerable.

Though a kind person at her core, she has a temper--but hers is a quiet anger. Rather than explode when pissed, Misae burns cold and has a tendency to grow deathly quiet, holding in her anger and stewing over it rather than expressing it--likely a result from her time in slavery, when she had to hide her anger for fear of repercussions. As a result, she doesn't really know how to handle anger in a healthy way.

Magic/Abilities
Astromancy! Misae draws power from the stars, sun, and moon and can use it to manipulate light. She can also read the stars--she can use them as a map for guidance, and also for astrological purposes, to make unusually accurate predictions based on celestial phases.

Relationships
Husband: Presumably alive, and presumed to be a laborer of some sort, perhaps even a gladiator. She hasn't seen him for years, and is not even certain he's alive, nor does she know how she feels about him anymore.

History
Misae was born within a tribe of nomads. To say her parents were surprised by Misae's birth is an understatement! They had no idea how they came to have such a pale child, considering  the Hjarai people are dark-skinned like Essyrni. Anomalies like her also weren't unheard of, though such children were also at higher risk for sun-borne cancers--which meant her parents protected her fiercely, keeping her bundled up and doing what they could to accommodate her sensitivity. That said, they loved her no less than any of her siblings, stood by to support her when children teased her for her looks, and doctored her many sunburns.

Though Misae grew to hate the sun, because it hurt her, the moon never harmed her and she came to love it. She spent many a night laying beneath the stars, watching the night sky, and though her vision was always poor, she could still make out the lights. As she grew, and as she began to show a talent for magic, it became apparent that she had a knack for astromancy, and she studied hard to hone her talent.

When she was 20, she fell in love with a man several years older who reciprocated her affection and found her beautiful, and by the age of 21, they had married.

It was the next afternoon that her life was flipped upside down.

Slavers raided her tribe, taking the strong, the useful, and the pretty, and killing those they found useless, and those that resisted. They nearly killed her, believing they wouldn't be able to get much for someone with her looks, but spared her when she begged them, when she told them of her gift.

Her husband was taken, too, and sold into labor, perhaps even sold to the Colosseum. Misae doesn't know; she hasn't seen him since, but holds onto the hope that she'll find him again one day. As for Misae? She was sold to a rich, eccentric merchant who kept her both as a concubine and for her gift. An astromancer that can read the stars is, after all, quite useful for business!

Or was.

Little did he know that Misae was biding her time, charting the stars for her own purposes and always observing him. He took her for granted, talked to her a little too much, and grew a bit careless in her presence as she flattered him and pleasured him and made him believe she thought he was special. Then, late one night when the moon was full and he was asleep, Misae used her knowledge of his business to unlock his safe, steal a good chunk of his money, and flee. She didn't know where she was going, but she trusted fate to guide her.

Now she is on the run, and it's rather hard to hide when she stands out like a sore thumb. But she can't leave until she finds out something about her husband--who she doesn't even know if he's alive or dead.

Not that she even knows where she would go, with her tribe wiped out. She has nothing to return to.

Hello, hello! This character is wonderful and I feel I could slip into her shoes and act her out with such ease. I'm not sure if this is how it works, but is there a way to "acquire" an rp character such as Misae?

Oh! xD Well! Thank you for the compliment! However, she's actually the character I created and play!

What you can do is create a character of your own and play that character. I'll send you a PM with a more thorough explanation! (:
