Persephone Giamilla|EIGHTEEN|FEXLUND LADY|NEUTRAL|Full Name:
Persephone Lilith Giamilla
Alias/Nick: Perse (Per-see)Title:
Occupation: Scholar/Lady Affiliations:
Being part Rodani and part Fexlunder has given Perse quite a range of differences in her appearance. Her father Philippe Giamilla has given Perse her Fexlunder features; being more on the fair-skinned (in summers slightly darker) and the luxury of her height with very long legs. Her mother Lilian Giamilla (nee; Garvin) has given Perse her Rodani features; long beautiful dark-brown locks of hair and envious green eyes that seem to mesmerize at the right time.
Perse has three pierces in her left ear, two on the bottom of her lobe and one on the top. On the other ear she wears only two piercings on the lower lobe. Luckily Perse doesn't have any noticeable scars or tattoos that people would see right from the start. But what she does hide is a scar that descends the whole of her spine. When she was 10 years of age she was in a horrible accident that caused the scar.
With the blood of nobility in her along with her very pristine upbringing, Perse is always dressed in her best and properly. Lilian made sure that her children were always dressed the way a prince or princess should be dressed. Her children were no such prince or princess but they were to always be neat and tidy. Philippe stressed to his staff to make sure to leave the impression on his children that to be properly dressed would earn proper respect. Not to mention, the parents just simply believed people looked better that way.Personality:
Spoiled. Spoiled was certainly one way to explain the eighteen year old Perse. Not only the youngest, but the only daughter to Philippe and Lilian, she was bestowed whatever she wished. Of course that was in part for Perse's parents preparing her to find a suitable husband. But even as spoiled as the young lady was, she wishes to do more with her wealth than simply gain luxuries but to share them... Just as long as she was able to keep the best for herself that is.
Stubborn. Perse was born stubborn. From the time she was born, Lilian would tell anyone, it was not her finest trait. She insisted that she could do anything and be anyone she wished since she was a small child. Perse learned early to insert her knowledge into a situation before you create an argument; You never get into an argument with a headstrong-intellectual-eighteen year old girl who insists on making sure everyone knows their facts just as well as she.
Loving. Perse was showered with love by her mother and father as well as her older brothers. Her family has always been warm and welcoming and even more so loving people and it has rubbed off on the young lady. Perse has dreamed of having a husband and children to shower with love as her parents did their children. Perse may be a bit of a brat at times, but it doesn't change the fact that the child has a heart of gold and would help anyone in need if she could.
Intelligent. Because her eldest brother Phoenix was rightful heir to their family's fortune and good name, her brother Louis was a knight and training master and her brother Antony was a Jagermeister, Perse certainly felt the need to pick up something she could be proud of! Instead of being like most of her female friends, who's biggest goal in life was to find a rich husband, Perse wanted something that no man, woman or being could take away from her. She first learned to read at the age of nine and by age 13, Perse was reading full books. She learned to write at the age or 10 and by age 16 could write everything. She always loved books, kept her nose buried in them to the point that her fingers were stained with ink from the pages. She has read a lot to know a lot and it definitely shows.
Fragile. In the last few years, Persephone lost her parents as well as the boy she was promised to marry, a man who she had not only been promised to marry since she was a child, but that she had truly fallen madly in love with. It was the thing that kept her going after the death of her parents. But when he too passed, she returned home in hopes to find happiness once again. But once home she found she needed more, she needed to find her way herself. She is easily upset and often feels as though one more thing wrong and she just may lose herself.History:+121 C.P. - Born -
