Blaire

Post by XxbellaluvsherrazorxX on 10/24/2014, 12:15 am

Name: Blaire Jennifer Izabella Sparks; close friends call her Cricket, friends call her Bella, and family/acquaintances/enemies call her Blaire.
Gender: Female
Mortal Parent: Blaire's mortal parent is her father, Zakari Akhtar. Since Zak was only 19 when Blaire was born, and he didn't know where he could find the mother, he ended up handing the baby over to social services. The father and daughter have not had any contact since then. Blaire's adoptive parents are Helena and Jeremy Sparks.
Godly Parent: Blaire's godly parent is Hecate, goddess of magic. She was claimed immediately upon arriving at camp.
Date of Birth: Blaire was born on October 13, 1998. She just turned 15.
Place of Birth: Blaire was born in New Orleans, LA. She was given to adoptive parents soon after birth and moved to Lawndale, NC, a tiny rural town about an hour from Charlotte.
Hometown: Lawndale, NC is a tiny rural town fairly far inland. It is connected to the town of Shelby and is a Shelby "offshoot" of sorts. Blaire went to the Shelby Bulldogs Elementary and Middle School and lived in a 3-story farmhouse on 10 acres of land. The area is very agricultural, with abundances of milk cows, potatoes, and corn. In back of the farmhouse are woods and a small river leading to the reclusive neighbor's property, and to the side is an expansive field where cattle and a few ponies are kept.
Last Residence: Right before Blaire was recruited for Camp Half-Blood, she attended a private boarding high school in CT, somewhere a friend of a friend went and suggested for the freshman student. Being very motivated, she took up a scholarship offer, and attended for five months until transferring to the Camp.
Race: Blaire is an interesting mashup of Persian, Russian, Irish, French, Hispanic, and Italian. She has curly brown hair, sharp almond-shaped blue eyes, and an olive skin tone. She also has Thalasemia trait from her Iranian side, which is a full quarter of her birth family.
Ethnicity: Blaire has a Southern accent from being raised in NC, and that's not the only thing she's picked up- her whole life, she's been the victim of merciless bullying due to her divergence from the typical white OR black OR Mexican cookie cutter. She's had to fight against developing prejudice and resentment toward those who tormented her. She WAS a Baptist, until she found out about her mother! And her views on politics? Let's just say: Pro-policy change, at best.
Accent: Blaire's Southern accent drops most r's and g's, stretches a's and o's, and puts h's in where h's do not belong. (Specifically referring to her personal accent-) when she is excited or angry, she tends to clip her words, and a trace of a French accent comes into play.
Skin Tone: Blaire's skin is a smooth, pale brown olive color.
Eye Color: Blaire's eyes are normally a sharp, electric blue, but they change shade with her mood. The most drastic change comes when she's angry- they turn a deep, strange blue-green-gray color and look almost like an optical illusion.
Hair Color: Blaire has curly hair that's a tawny color with natural blonde and reddish highlights. She currently has it dyed black with pink and purple stripes in it.
Hair Length: It's cut unevenly, so the longest is past her shoulders and the shortest is right at her ear. She usually straightens it and combs her bangs over her left eye.
Height: Blaire is about 5' 2". She's pretty sensitive about her height.
Weight: She currently weighs about 93 pounds, but simultaneously losing and trying to gain weight. It's difficult for her to gain because with depression and anxiety, she has almost no appetite.
Body Type: Since she's so underweight, she's basically a twig.
Appearance: So all in all, Blaire is fairly pretty. She's average height, maybe at the lower end of the spectrum, and dangerously underweight. She's got jagged dyed black hair with pink and purple in it, bright blue to dark blue-gray eyes, olive-y skin, and a nice nose. Her arms are covered in scars from her unfortunate habit of self-harm, and her left wrist bears the 7-month-old 5-lined mark of a failed razor suicide attempt. She generally wears band T-shirts, tank tops, what looks like the same pair of ripped skinny jeans, and old white Converse with writing all over them.
Weapon: Blaire's weapons of choice are an intricate bow with Celestial bronze arrows and twin Celestial bronze daggers. She's very capable with both.
Armor: She wears a magical hooded cloak carrying various magical perks like flickering invisibility and impenitrability. She prefers no other armor.
Pet(s): Blaire has a little newt that likes to hide in her cloak and travels everywhere with her. She kept herself from getting attached to it at first, but lately has taken to calling it Rebecca. It's completely ordinary and mortal, but it seems to like its person.
Talents/Skills:She's very good at languages, science, understanding animals (including humans) and lying. She's also very artistic and has always been good at sketching and writing. Then her skills are horseback riding, fist-fighting, and hiding her feelings.
Flaws: Blaire's flaws are: Stubbornness, moodiness, quick temper, too skinny, and extremely shy.
Strengths: Blaire's strenghths are: (no demigod powers involved) manipulating people's minds, communicating on a simple level with animals.  
Weaknesses: Blaire's weaknesses are: obsession with being right, arguing, and mistrusting everyone.
Likes: Blaire likes metal and rock bands, cats, snakes, reading, and the colors black, silver, and bright pink.
Dislikes: Blaire dislikes boy bands, large dogs, movies with bad endings, and people who are mean to her.
Fears: Blaire has 2 phobias- Barophobia (fear of falling) and mazophobia (fear of getting lost). She also has an abstract and far less crippling fear of disappointing those she loves.
Personality: Blaire is a depressive, mercurial teen who struggles with anger and violence issues. Past abuse has made her deeply distrustful of anyone and everyone. She is also very shy and difficult to get to know, let alone like. However, once she considers someone a friend, she will go to the ends of the earth for them and never, EVER abandon them. She is a great listener, very empathetic, and will always spare a few minutes if someone she loves needs to talk.
Powers: Blaire can manipulate the four elements (earth, air, fire, water) to a limited extent (the most powerful thing she can do with water for instance would be like mid-level Percy stuff), but her primary power lies in healing. She can heal minor injuries with a simple touch, and with some ambrosia, she can fix up just about anything short of a brain bleed or an arrow through a lung.
Social Status: Blaire has always been a loner and school freak because of her appearance and mental issues.
Summer or Year Rounder: She stays at Camp year-round because she would endanger her family if she went home. She feels far more comfortable at camp anyway.
Years at Camp: She's spent 2 years at CBH.
Life Before CHB: Before Blaire came to CBH, she led a happy family life with her adoptive parents but had a horribly abusive social life at school. She was constantly tormented, even by the other outcasts. At home she learned to hide this so as to avoid worrying her parents, and she took to self-harm as an alternate way of coping. Sketching, poetry, and singing also helped her deal with all the things she had nobody to discuss with. After years of this isolated torture, the new teen grabbed at the chance to do something more when she got the recommendation for the private school in CT. She made the move a weekend after she was accepted to the school, and began settling in after a few weeks more. She was very surprised to find others like herself at the school, and as she began to adapt and flourish, she attracted attention... positive, and negative. While many of her teachers loved the shy, studious girl, it always seemed like her Biology teacher Mr. Gray resented her success. As it turned out, Mr. Gray was a solidified ghost who had escaped before the Doors closed, and he feared even Blaire's undiscovered demigod status. The day he finally attacked her, she was rescued by a recruit team with bows, arrows, and lots of fireworks, and they took her back to CBH with them. The next morning she was claimed as a child of Hecate.
Role-playing Example: (this is when Blaire is alone in her room, before she goes to boarding school.) She gently stroked the blade across her arm, gradually increasing pressure until, with a small gasp of relief, she broke the skin and drew a tiny point of blood. "They hurt me- I can hurt them back, can't I- but I won't, I won't, I won't--" she keened to herself, wiping the blood off the blade's tip. She stopped moving as though she'd been shot when she heard her mother come up the stairs and tap her closed door. Not really listening to the woman's question about dinner, Blaire rose, put the knife back in her dresser, and locked the drawer. She pulled her shirtsleeve over the new wound and opened the door casually, sure her smile was just the right width to put any possible suspicion at ease.
"I'm sorry Mom- I couldn't hear ya that well with my headphones in. What is it?" She was asked again whether she would rather turkey or beef in meatloaf. Once she established that she had no preference, she gave another calculated smile and retreated once more behind the shut door.
She sat with her head in her hands, trying not to cry, feeling horribly inexperienced and helpless. What's wrong with me? she thought angrily to herself. Why does my head keep screwing up when my heart knows what to do?

I'm gonna say no to the cloak with invisibility/impenetrability. (Does she have armor to wear for Capture the Flag games and all?)

Does your character have any facial flaws that mars her appearance?

Powers:
- You'll need to define the most powerful thing she can do with any of the elements. (Mid-level Percy stuff seems a bit too powerful when you take into account that she has three other elements to use, which will probably drain her a lot.)
- How many times a day can she use her element manipulation powers and healing?
- What's the worst wound she can heal without the aid of ambrosia/nectar? How long does it take for a wound to heal?

How did this "recruit team" that rescued Blaire actually find her, and who was in it? Why was Mr. Gray so scared of her, if she hadn't even known she was a demigod? (I'm not sure the Doors would even have been opened by the time this site takes place, but I'll ask an admin. Have a backup plan for Mr. Gray just in case.)

Okay, how about just a regular bronze breast plate and helmet then.

I could give her a scar across one eye and cheekbone, from getting assaulted by guys at school, if that would work.

-K, let's say... growing vines around things and forming water bubbles and breathing underwater, and just cut the other two elements all together.
-She can use her element powers a few small times a day, or one large time every day or two. Then her healing is more innate so less draining, and she can do one large healing and a couple small healings every day.
-The worst wound she can heal without any help would be maybe a broken bone or inch-deep gash. Healing time depends on the type of wound, but the longest it can take is a half hour (deep wound or badly broken bone), and the shortest time 5 minutes (for a small cut or bruise).

If the admin says the Doors being open is okay, then the recruit team had Nico, Piper, and Ella the harpy in it and they found Blaire with a prophecy Ella remembered. They were able to track her down easily by Mr. Grey's aura, which Nico detected.
-Mr. Grey was scared of her because he didn't know whether she was aware of her abilities or not, and she was very powerful. He felt threatened and confused of her.
-If the Doors idea falls through, then Mr. Grey can just be a ghost that Luke summoned and released at some point. He then escaped capture and has been hiding in the disguise of a mortal for several years. The recruit team found Blaire by tracking his spirit signature, which would be less subtle than if he came through the Doors.

Thanks :)

A regular CB breast plate and helmet sounds fine.

A scar also works, although we'd prefer something like acne or a crooked nose.

Powers:
- How long are the vines, and how large are the bubbles? What other things could she do with her powers?
- Define what a "few small times" would be -- 5 times at most?
- How bad would be the worst broken bone she could heal?
- How long is her cool-down period between her small usages of both her healing power and her element power?

Unfortunately, you're gonna need to scrap the recruit team idea -- OC (noncanon, as in nonexistent within the actual book series) characters with connections to canon characters in their Life Before Camp sections are not allowed, so Nico, Ella, and Piper rescuing her would not be allowed. You could say, however, that a satyr and a demigod or two (not actual characters from the book -- if you ask around the site you could have other people's characters come) came in to find her.

Also, Mr. Gray being summoned by Luke would not be okay, either. Try making him another monster.
