Graziella D’Amore, but everybody calls her GraceSpecies:
Grace is a beautiful young woman, stands at an average height, and is a bit more curvy than her cohorts—she has full breasts and big hips, and she carries herself with an air of quiet elegance and confidence. Her face is like a doll’s and Asian in structure—flat features, very few contours, upturned nose and a tiny mouth. Her hair is a pale blond with a grayish tint to it, and it hangs down to her waist in thick, silky strands. She has large, bright grey eyes with this doe-eyed quality to them. She tends to walk about silently, and though she’s awfully kind, she’s also quite solitary.
------------ Grace seems to be, for the most part, human. Though her hybrid species has had some effect on her hair and eye color, her animalistic feature is actually her ears—a pair of leopard ears that sit atop her head. Unlike most hybrids, Grace has two features—or, really, one and a half—she was meant to have a tail as well but, when she was born, it wasn’t long on beautiful like the tails of most snow leopards. Her tail came out as a bobbed tail, maybe three inches at best. Grace is a bit embarrassed by her tail, because it sets her out from most hybrids. Appearance is sort of like this
, except her hair and skin are more washed-out, and her curves are slightly more accentuated.)Clothing/Weapons:
Grace isn’t meant to have weapons, but like some brothel girls, she managed to attain some. Throughout her room, she has hidden a switchblade, some mace, and some knuckledusters in some very peculiar places. She hasn’t told anyone, nor shown anyone where they are, but she has them there, just in case.
------------ Aside from costumes that she’s gotten for work, she has only one outfit of her own. No shoes, as is her preference, and she only wears shoes while working. Grace owns a pair of short jean shorts, a fitted, lacy black camisole, and a large maroon sweater for when it gets cold. The only accessory she owns is a small, silver locket from her mother, which is engraved with Grace’s full name.Goal/Occupation:
A lounge singer/courtesan at some brothel; recently transferred elsewhere
------------ Save all hybrids, specifically the children, from their oppression
------------ She wants to become a real singer, which has always been a fanciful dream of hersPersonality:
Grace seems to be a gentle, cheerful girl who doesn’t speak unless spoken to and takes orders very well. She acts very mellow, and very patient, but what few will learn is that, behind her tranquil exterior exists an intelligent mind and the unbridled spirit of a fighter. If someone takes the time to look her in the eye, they’ll see her pride, see that she observes everything. That she’s more than an animal. She has a weakness for kids of all sorts, and tries to mother any child that comes her way. Any person that finds that Grace has taken a liking to them will learn that she’s very protective, and will learn of the intellect beneath her sweet-faced surface. Through practice, she’s learned self-control, but there are a few things that will move her to action without a second thought. Also, though she isn’t in a position of power, she’s learned how to manipulate people to get what she wants, and she most definitely uses it.History:
Grace was born on the outside, and that is where her heart always was. She was taken in when she was three, and her parents were killed—her mother (a hybrid) was too old to be of profit to the industry, and her father was a sympathizer. When Grace arrived at the brothel, she instantly began training and working around the brothel. Because she was so young, she was placed under the care of a woman named Desideria—the Boss intended for Desideria to teach Grace about the brothel, to brainwash her, but Desideria had her own plans. Desideria taught Grace how to read, how to fight, and to always remember who she was. Most importantly, Desideria taught Grace to never let the humans convince her that she was lower. One day, they’d be liberated, and the humans would realize that they were all equals.
------------ Grace came to regard Desideria as her maternal figure, and under her guidance she became a woman whose soul was entirely her own. She seemed to be on the fast road to success, even taking up vocal lessons to be a lounge singer as well as a courtesan, but things went horribly wrong. There was a shooting at her brothel, which was a scummy place to begin with, and most of the people ended up dead—all of the hybrids, most of the clients, the guards, and the boss—not even the children had made it out alive. Grace was among few to survive, and was found hiding in a kitchen cabinet, with the pots and pans, mere feet away from the body of Desideria. She was found by the authorities, and locked up while they assessed the psychological damage, decided on whether or not she could be of profit, if it would be worth selling her to a different brothel.
------------ It was determined that she was still of use, and so she was sold to the highest bidder and is currently being transferred to her new place of work. Grace has already decided that, wherever she may end up, that she will run away and take whoever she can along with her, to save them such tragedy, and to finally be free. She doesn’t want only to be free in spirit, but free in body as well.
