Hey sam, you mentioned earlier about possibly re-opening the sign-ups? :)

I have read all the info on the first page, and I have a character in mind. Just thought I'd check with you to see if this thing is open, before I start making a CS.

So many choices. Steal the cheese, catch the thief, get the heck out, help the thief, or let him go?

Hmm.
Too good for you.

~INCOMING WALL OF TEXT~

Fuck, what is it with me and adding so much detail? fuuuuuuuuuck D:

Haha, ah well, I had so much fun coming up this character!
Hope you all enjoy reading war and peace… XD



Name: Hester Claerwen Willow

Age: 20

Gender: Female

Race: Man-kin

Nationality: Xephamorian

Standing: Neutral, inclining towards being against the Mekian Empire.

Profession/Role: - Freelance Artist

- Of noble blood, but illegitimate, making her somewhat of a social outcast. However, she was ‘adopted’ into the Willow family and so keeps her father’s surname.
- Likes to think of herself as a bit of a bohemian – although she’s not quite that either, thanks to her questionable social status.


Appearance: Standing at a modest height of 5’3”, Hester has a slender build with very little curves…though not quite a pencil figure, apart from going in around the waist there isn’t much shape to her, although her clothing does help accentuate what little curves she has.

Hester is more unusual in appearance than most, in that she is albino. Her skin is the palest of whites, her lips pink and her hair and even her eyelashes are white, her eyes giving off a pink-ish red hue in colour. Despite being albino her eyesight isn’t as bad as one would think, and she is far from blind. She keeps a pair of glasses around her neck on a thin silver chain, which she uses for to help her see details on things. (Reading and examining things is what she’d use her glasses for, mostly.) The rest of the time she leaves her glasses around her neck or folds them away into a breast pocket, so that they’re on hand when she needs them.
Her hair is long, white and slightly wispy, bordering on fluffy, falling around her to end just short of her waist. One side falls slightly over her face, with both eyes still visible. Sometimes she’ll tie it back into a low messy-bun when it gets in her way, or for when she’s painting and doesn’t want her hair to fall in the paints and chemicals…sometimes she still manages to get flecks of paint in her hair though, even with this precaution. It’s quite usual for her to have a smear or smudge of paint (or several) somewhere on her, whether it be her hands, her clothing, hair or occasionally her face. However apart from whatever mess she might get herself into with her work, generally she keeps herself reasonably clean, and despite the paint it’s clear to see she at least has hygiene – usually she will smell of a mixture of oil paint, various solvents and chemicals and perfumed soap.

Clothing~ (Wasn’t sure how ‘steam punk’ to go with this, but hey…)

Hester tends to wear clothing in neutral colours: blacks, browns, cream/beige, greys and whites, although she has been known to wear other colours from time-to-time. Black or brown dominates her dress sense the most.
Her attire usually consists of, firstly, a black, cropped Victorian opera jacket with long sleeves and flared, ruffled cuffs, the body section of which buttons at the neck and then opens out, and comes down to her midriff. There is a small pocket on the left side. Under this she wears a white double-buttoned short-sleeved blouse with ruffled hem and cuffs. This has more pockets and is fitted to her waist, flaring out over the hips. This is then followed by a skirt that comes down to her knees: a thick white underskirt covered in ruffles with a solid black outer skirt which falls to a little way above it, fixed with – you’ve guessed it – more pockets at the front. These pockets (the other pockets mentioned above too) tend to be stuffed with paintbrushes and other artist tools, and the outer skirt tends to have the odd smearing of paint on it. The full circle of the outer skirt has built in ribbons, allowing Hester to tie the over skirt up into a variety of bustle fashion. A suspender clip on either side lifts the overskirt up at those points to show off the ruffles underneath. Under the skirt she wears a pair of ruffled pants that stop just short of her knees…which she says she wears ‘just in case’, since she has a habit of doing unlady-like things such as hitching up her skirt and climbing a tree. Added to this, she wears black almost see-though tights and thick, black knee-high boots that lace all the way to the top. The heels of the boots are reasonably flat and practical for walking and running in. Will sometimes wear a black victorian-esque cap, if only to protect her head against the sunlight and/or cold, depending on the weather. And of course, as described earlier on, she often has her glasses around her neck. Also around her neck is a number of pendants (described in equipment) attached to thin long chains or bits of string around her neck. Sometimes she has these out on display; other times she tucks them inside her clothing out of view.
She also has a black hooded cloak she wears if the weather turns harsh. The cloak was a gift from her father, and came with an ornamental silver brooch in the shape of a Rapture eye. The brooch is detachable from the cloak, and can be worn with or without it.

The black and white outfit is also interchangeable in colour, so some days she may wear a similar outfit in brown and cream instead of black and white, etc. Sometimes she won’t care to match things up, and will mix and match colours any old how.



Weapons/Equipment:

-Artist’s Field Easel – A simple sturdy wooden tripod design with collapsible legs, easy to fold away and carry under an arm. Ideal for when you’re travelling about. Includes a compartment where art supplies can be stored, and includes straps so that it’s easy to carry.

-Art Palette – Simple wooden palette that easily fits in the hand, whilst giving plenty of space for mixing and placing paints. Hester keeps this strapped to the easel when it’s not in use.

-Artist Toolbox – A hand-held durable metal case where Hester keeps much of her art equipment. Paints, various paintbrushes of varying sizes and shapes, palette/painting knives, bottles of oils and spirits, cloth, chalk, charcoal, pencils, kneaded erasers, bottles of ink and pens are amongst the items you would find in there. (She also carries such items on her person, in her pockets). She also owns a hammer and a small tin box of nails, useful for constructing her own canvases, if and when she needs to.

-Art canvases (blank) – Hester has two fairly small (about A3 size) canvases with her. She’s hoping to acquire more at Meka.

-Hester’s Paintings – Hester currently has four of her own paintings with her, works that she had done in Xephamore. She has many more paintings back at home, but wanting to travel light(ish) she couldn’t take them all with her. She’s looking to sell the ones she has to get some more money – for a reasonable price, of course. Hester’s canvases are covered with tarpaulin to help protect them against the elements, and are strapped to the outside of her backpack.
[[If you need me to go into more detail with what these paintings consist of, I can. Lack of inspiration is the only thing preventing me from giving descriptions of each one right at this moment]].

-Hester’s Backpack – The backpack is weaved with magic that makes whatever contents it’s holding surprisingly lightweight – which is just as well with all the equipment Hester has to carry around. The backpack has embroidered patterns in black and purple around the lining, with a small Rapture’s eye embroidered on the front.

- Two plain sketchpads - one average-sized and one notepad/pocket sized. Both bound neatly with protective leather covers. She keeps the pocket-sized one on her person, the other one is kept in her backpack.

- A pocket knife – She uses this mainly for sharpening her tools, such as the pencils. But it’s good and sharp enough to double up as a weapon.

- A roll of Canvas cloth + wood for canvas frames. – (Because you never know when you might need to construct more canvases by hand at short notice.)

-Pocket watch – To tell the time, of course.

-Wallet – Where Hester keeps her money. She has enough money with her to keep her living comfortably for a week or two, and gather more art supplies – but not enough to afford luxuries.

-Glasses – As described in the appearance section, Hester has her pair of glasses which she wears around her neck for easy access. She also has a small protective tin case to keep them in when she is sure she doesn’t need them.

- Pendants – Also as described in the appearance section, Hester has a few pendants on her:
~~~~A silver and purple one in the shape of the Rapture’s eye, with feathers hanging down from it, dyed purple to look like a Rapture’s. This is the largest of her pendants, and the most noticeable.
~~~~A wooden one with the Rathyan letter ‘H’ chiselled into it and decorated with fancy typography and tied around her neck with string.
~~~~A string of purple beads, of varying shades. Has what looks like some kind of animal tooth as a centre piece.
~~~~And lastly a violet coloured oval stone, set in silver.


Personality: Hester is a bit of an odd ball. A bit of a clumsy, awkward character, she can come across as ditzy or somewhat strange…however first impressions can be misleading, and Hester is an intelligent young woman, if a little eccentric and naïve. Creative and with a hunger for knowledge, she will often do all she can to learn more things about the world. She is always looking to broaden her horizons, expand on what she knows and learn more. With a mixture of both Gypsy and Xephamorian influence in her, some of her actions and behaviour tend to be outlandish – not exactly what you would expect from the daughter of a nobleman. Climbing trees in order to get the perfect viewpoint in which to sketch, running barefoot, absently rubbing paint across her nose, tucking a paintbrush behind her ear, walking with her eyes closed, talking to herself – these are all habits Hester has, amongst other obscure things.

Of course, though her actions can seem as odd to others, Hester always has a reason behind it. What appears to be a load of nonsense actually carries more sense for Hester than people would realise…sometimes Hester is surprised when people don’t see her logic. For example, she finds walking with her eyes closed is a good way to train her third eye to ‘see’ for her…makes sense in that context, right?

Of course to say that she is a cuckoolander 100% of the time would be far from accurate. Sure she has her head in the clouds at times, but apart from perhaps being ‘odd’ in some people’s eyes, she’s perfectly sane...or at least, so she assures people. Hester has been known to show sensibleness, rationality and reason on a regular basis, and when it comes to her work, her feet are solidly planted on the same earth as everyone else. She gets annoyed and frustrated when people don’t take her seriously or patronise her, and hates it when people question her sanity, or look down at her…not to say she isn’t used to that kind of treatment. She is a young woman constantly fighting to get her voice heard, relatively new to the business side of the artist world, and struggling to not get lost. She knows what it’s like to be considered an outcast, stuck in a social limbo between the lower and upper classes...and her albino appearance certainly doesn’t help the way she is viewed. However she is not at all self-conscious; if people stare at her because of her unusual looks and odd behaviour, Hester is the kind of person that would stare right back, just to unnerve them. She is also quite used to deliberately playing the fool or the innocent, dim-witted girl if it works to her advantage in a given situation – she’s someone who is aware of how some people may judge her, and will play on her sanity and intelligence if she feels it will help her. Sometimes she will play dumb in order to weed out the people trying to scam her or rip her off, when she’s out buying/selling.
So needless to say, being judged as not the brightest crayon in the box has its usefulness, as well as its disadvantages.

Needless to say, Hester’s family roots have rubbed off on her – when it doesn’t concern her work or trying to earn a living, she takes a generally liberal, laid back attitude to life. She has the Xephamorian thirst for knowledge, with an appreciation for the gypsy way of life as well as for Xephamorian culture. She’s a person who enjoys both the finer things in life, and the natural and wild. A Xephamorian by culture and of noble heritage, a bohemian at heart. She finds beauty in both the good and the bad, the natural and the technological, and as an artist finds both aspects interesting fields of study.

Hester is innocent in that she was born into a sheltered life with a silver spoon in her mouth. She has some modesty and humbleness, and knows how to look after and protect herself, but possesses little first-hand experience with the ‘bad’ side of life. She hasn’t been in many life-threatening situations before – and she hopes she never will. She’s not particularly brave, and is likely to flounder at the first sign of trouble. However, since she has little or no experience in those situations, it’s hard to say how she would react…well, until it happens.



Magick: (I know I tend to be a bit ambitious with powers, so if I’m going too far with this, just give me a heads-up.)

Hester’s magick is an obscure sub-branch of psychic power. She is a [forgive me, I couldn’t think of a better name for it], a Picto-psychic – A person who can interact with pictures, photos and images using the third eye. With this ability she can do a certain number of particular things.

Picture-conversing
– Hester can talk with pictures. Yes that’s right, talk. When most people pick up a picture, they just see a 2-dimensional, unmoving picture. However when Hester picks up a picture, she can see a living, breathing work of art – quite literally. Paintings and photos of people can talk to her, as if they are real people, and Hester can talk back to them, quite easily holding an educated conversation with them. Similar to mind reading, only with images of people as opposed to ‘living’ people. Other people can see Hester talking to the images, but they cannot hear or see the images talking back…(another reason why some people may believe Hester is insane, if they don’t understand her gift with images). Although, Hester can get others to ‘see’ the pictures talk too, with enough concentration.
The people she talks to in pictures are aware of what they are – they know that they are just pictures, however they often talk on the personality and memories of the person they are portraying…in a way it is like talking to the real person of who they supposedly represent. However, they are still pictures – merely an echo of the person they are in real life. So Hester can have a conversation with a portrait of her uncle, for example, and from that portrait she could find out a lot of information about her Uncle and the things he knows, without actually meeting him in person. However, if she did meet her uncle in real life, it would be like meeting him for the first time all over again – whilst the pictures take on the essence of the person, they are not the actual person. Merely a weak painted ‘clone’ or projection of the real thing.
The paintings/pictures can also give Hester information about the painting/picture itself – how it is, who made it, who owned it last, etc. They can give her details of things they have ‘seen’ of the outside world from their canvas/paper…which is useful for when Hester is considering buying a work of art. The painting can even tell her whether it was stolen or not, and who stole it, if they happened to see the thief!
Of course, with the pictures gaining their own personalities, just like real people, not every painting is willing to talk to Hester, or give her information. It varies from picture-to-picture, some pictures being welcoming and only too happy to help Hester out…others, not so welcoming.

Picture-travelling
– Hester can not only talk to the pictures from outside the frame; she can travel into the painting or picture herself, visiting the world beyond the paint or image. A painting of a field of flowers? Hester can travel to that field, run up and down it, roll around in the grass, breathe in the scent of the flowers…and come back to the real world, covered in grass-stains with a flower still in her hair. A photo of a busy city street in the pouring rain? Hester can walk across that street, stop a horse and carriage and ask a cabby for a ride, splash in the puddles, and come back out again dripping with rainwater. Back at the Willow Estate, Hester used to travel into the paintings on the walls when she was bored, and had many an adventure there. She found it was a good way to hide from her half-siblings, too…and a great way to cheat at hide-and-seek.
However, picture travelling is said to be a dangerous business – all it would take is for someone to destroy the picture whilst you were still inside it, and that’s it – you’re screwed. Or, what would happen if you travelled into a painting depicting a vicious battle, or a natural disaster? Sometimes, the consequences can be severe. Back in her childhood Hester used to picture travel without a thought to the consequences, but these days she’s a lot more cautious, and doesn’t do picture-travelling much anymore. At least talking to the pictures from the outside world, it’s a lot safer. However, by travelling into a picture, information that might not have been available otherwise becomes available: in the picture world, you might be able to find a person inside a house in the distance, who you could then talk to, where from the outside only a distant house would have been seen. Details become three-dimensional once Hester steps into a picture, and she can discover things she would not have known about otherwise.

Picture-Making
– By using the real world as her canvas, Hester can bring drawn or painted images truly to life. More than just an illusion, a person can actually interact with the ‘art’ Hester creates. All Hester needs is a medium for which to channel her psychic energy (i.e. A paintbrush), and she can ‘draw’ or ‘paint’ things in the air, which can then become ‘real’ temporarily. Similar to creating illusions, only more artistic and interactive. Want to cross a river? Hester can ‘draw’ a bridge for you. Need a weapon? Hester can paint a sword into being for a limited time only, which you can then use, just like a real sword.
In theory, Hester can draw and bring to life whatever her imagination and artistic ability can come up with – however Hester’s ability is generally limited to small or basic things.

Rule is, the less powerful and more basic an object is, the better it will work. For example, Hester could ‘draw’ a simple ball into being quite easily. Quick, effortless, and the ball would probably last a good while before being a 2D image again and disintegrating into nothing. However, if Hester tried to draw/paint something like a sophisticated robot, or draw a real person to life…the illusion would probably fall apart and disintegrate before it would have a chance to form. (It’s Hester’s mind that brings these drawings to life, so obviously the more she has to think about, the harder it is to keep the image from drifting apart.)

A good example of demonstrating the limits to Hester’s ability, is creating or ‘drawing’ a door. Hester can, for instance, take a piece of chalk, and draw herself a door on a wall, which she could then use to gain access to a building she couldn’t access before. The door she had drawn would flesh itself out enough for it to be used like a proper door should, at least long enough for Hester to use it and walk through it.
However, Hester must know exactly what she intends to ‘create’ before hand. How thick is the wall she needs to create a doorway/door through? How far back will the doorway have to reach? The thicker the wall, for example, the more time, energy and concentration it will take to create a doorway to go through it. Misjudge it for being thinner than it actually is, and Hester could end up with a door that opens up onto…well, the same wall she was trying to pass through. Or misjudge it for being thicker than it really is, and Hester’s energy reserves are wasted on something that wasn’t needed. So generally speaking, Hester needs to know what is on the other side of said wall before a door could be created. Material is also another thing to consider; drawing a door that can open a paper wall is going to be a hell of a lot easier than drawing a door that can open a steel one.

So with Hester’s Picture-making: The more basic = the higher the success rate + the less taxing it is on Hester. Hester only uses this ability to create small, basic objects – complex mechanisms, powerful objects or people/creatures are out of the question. Some things however, like animals and plants, can be created as non-interactive illusions: artistic-looking illusions which are really just that: illusions. Something you can see, but cannot affect the environment with.

It is said though, that Hester’s ‘interactive illusions’ are beautiful…it really is like seeing artwork and colours come to life.



Hobbies:
Art
– there is no greater passion in her life. Whether it be creating her own or appreciating works by others, using it as a means of working for a living or just as a past-time, she loves it. Someone holding a public exhibition? She’ll be there. A festival with artwork on sale? A new statue or architecture unveiled? Hester wouldn’t say no to visiting it. She’s constantly on the lookout for things to inspire her for that next painting, or that next sketch. Hester is a talented artist, and considering the factors against her shows a lot of promise. Her paintings and drawings are said to be full of so much energy, colour and life, they look as if they could almost walk right off the page or canvas…
She’s also got a good eye and fast hand for quick sketches – able to capture things with just a few strokes of a pencil. A favourite pastime of hers is to do quick sketches of people that she meets, or people that happen to pass by her.

Reading
– Hester loves a good story. Fiction interests her greatly, and she likes to curl up with a good book. She also loves finding out new things…studying texts is a great way for her to gain more knowledge and insight into things.

Travelling
– Hester loves seeing new sights, trying out new things and discovering new experiences. She’s always looking for the beauty and ‘art’ in life, and there’s no better way to do that then to travel and see the sights the world has to offer. It may be something to do with the Gypsy blood in her, but Hester has always felt at home most when she’s out travelling. The lifestyle of having nothing but the goods carried on your back appeals to her. Travelling also helps her learn more about the world – knowledge and learning about things is important to her.

Climbing things
– There is something about getting to great heights with just your hands and feet that Hester finds enjoyable and exhilarating. She finds it’s a good method of exercise too, helping to build some strength in her arms and legs…and is well rewarded usually with a great view. She loves the feeling of the wind in her hair, and looking down on the world from above, seeing how far into the distance she can see.

‘Blind’ walking
– Every now and then, Hester will take a stroll with her eyes closed or blindfolded. She says it’s a good way to train her third eye to see for her…and perhaps there is some truth in this. For someone who can’t see where they’re going, Hester seems to be able to navigate around extraordinarily well. She also seems to be very good at finding her way around in the dark too – which for someone with her naturally poor eyesight, is quite incredible.
Hester exercises her third eye in this way at least once a week. She claims it helps her with her other picto-psychic abilities, too.



History: (I apologise in advance for the cheesiness of this History. -__- Really, I do.)
(I also apologise because it is FUCKING HUGE.)

Hester was born into noble blood, the Willow family, in the year 1233yps, and grew up at the ‘Willow Estate’ in a little known town in the North-East of Xephamor, close to the borders of Icilee. Her father, Roderick Willow, was a rich Xephamorian noble; her mother, said to go by the name of ‘Mercy’, was a passing Gypsy. The two were lovers – but Esther’s father was already married to another woman, Rowena. Whenever Mercy could, she would visit Roderick, the two meeting in secret and sharing letters whenever they were apart. That was, until one night in 1233yps. Mercy suddenly showed up at the Willow Estate, clearly not in the best of health and heavily pregnant. She explained to Roderick that the baby was his. She had originally not intended to tell him, feeling it was better the child to be brought up with her as a Gypsy…it was unlikely the illegitimate child of a Gypsy woman would ever be accepted by the Willow family, and she could not bring herself to lose the child. However, circumstances had changed; Mercy was now very ill. She knew that her chances of survival after giving birth to Hester were slim – and if she could not bring up the child, it was her death wish that her lover would take the child in. Mr Willow was stunned, angry…but he still loved Mercy. So he took her to the servant quarters, in a building separate from the main house – and it was there she gave birth to “Hester” – it came as a surprise to them both to discover the child was albino, which prompted Mercy on Hester’s middle name: “Claerwen”, meaning “Brilliant white”.

Mercy died just one day later.
Roderick, left devastated by the loss and lumbered with a child he had not planned for, was now left with the delicate situation of explaining to his wife why they now had another child in addition to their own. The situation, as you can imagine, was not easy. Rowena would never let him forget it, not for many, many years. However, she reluctantly agreed that the child could stay. As much as Rowena didn’t like the idea of having the child of another woman in her house, she knew that arguing that the girl should be given to an orphanage would only drive more of a wedge between Roderick and herself…and for that reason, she let Hester stay.

And so it was that Hester grew up as a Xephamorian, never truly knowing her mother. As a baby, she was looked after by the house servants, who nursed her and looked after her. Despite this, she was treated the same as the other children in the Willow Household, as a Willow herself and not as a servant.
Hester was to live her childhood in a social limbo between the servants and her ‘family’. Treated, educated and spoilt like the other children, but looked after by the servants, and though she would become a ‘Willow’, Rowena and the rest of the Willow family would never truly accept her. The other children (of which there was three, two girls and a boy) treated her as an outcast, her startling unusual appearance only provoking this. Various names such as ‘ghosty’, ‘whitey’, ‘pastey’ and ‘pink eyes’ were given to her out of spite, pranks were played on her such as stealing her glasses and knocking her to the floor because they ‘couldn’t see her’, and Hester was invariably picked on by her three half siblings. Rowena, although never cruel or unkind to Hester, made it clear to the girl from an early age that she did not like her, and treated her with coldness. Mr Willow was rarely around the house much, and it wasn’t clear whether he knew about Hester’s treatment by the rest of the family and decided not to get involved, or didn’t care, or was just simply was unaware of it. Hester, never really being close to her father, however, would never tell him. To her as a child, Roderick was just the intimidating head of the household who she preferred to avoid…it was the servants who she considered her real family in those lonely years, and it was the servants she felt closest to. It was only later in her life that she would understand how much Roderick had done for her, despite his seemingly poor role as a father to her.

It was during these early years that she made some rather important friends: A young man with an umbrella, an old sorcerer, a lady in a punting boat, and a farmer with a wonky hat. Whenever she felt she needed someone to talk to, she would confide in them.
However these people weren’t just imaginary friends. These people were featured in the various paintings hanging on the walls of the Willow Household. The paintings spoke to her, and through her eyes they seemed to come to life…Hester even sometimes visited the painting themselves, delving into their world of oil and colour, stepping into the world beyond the canvas. Hester was unaware that it wasn’t the normal practise for paintings to speak and move, and so her abilities went unnoticed for many years. The times she told servants and family members of her ‘adventures’ inside the paintings and talking to them, they had just thought Hester had made it up. Children her age often played lets pretend games, after all…so she had ‘imagined’ walking into the painting, what was so odd about that?

As she talked with the paintings more and more, her knowledge on them grew. She found out that the young man with the umbrella was her Great Uncle on her father’s side, Tobias Willow; the lady in the boat was his sister: Hester’s grandmother, Heretta Willow. She had never met them in real life, but in their painting forms, she loved them dearly. The old sorcerer was another family member, an ancestor by the name of Octavius Willow. And the farmer was simply a figure in a Landscape panting of Terrantula, who liked to be called ‘Medric’. He had two crows that he kept yelling at for attacking his crops – Hester gave the crows the names ‘Wilbert’ and ‘Harry’ and declared them as her pets, just to tease Medric. There were other paintings and portraits in the house, but it was these paintings in particular that Hester was most fond of: her childhood friends. By talking to the paintings, she not only got to hear their stories as if they were really the people they represented, but she also realised that they were aware they were paintings – they could tell her when they had been painted, who had painted them, and the many things they had seen inside the Willow Estate since they were first hung on its walls.

As Hester approached her teenage years, she became a lot more inquisitive – particular about her family tree. She wondered: Tobias and Heretta Willow…were they still alive? She never saw much of her family outside of the Willow Estate. And her mother…what had she been like? She had often asked about her, but the only information she could get from her father was that “she was beautiful”, and that she had been a Gypsy. It was clear he wanted to avoid speaking about her, and for a long time Hester hadn’t pushed the subject. But talking to the paintings, she realised just how much she wished she could hear stories about her mother, just like she had heard stories about Tobias and Heretta from their paintings. Could it be possible Roderick Willow had a portrait of her mother? Or even a small photograph? Just one tiny picture was all she wished for…

So Hester decided to do some ‘investigating’. One night when she knew her father was not at the Estate and Rowena was attending to one of her children who had been struck by illness, Hester snuck into her father’s private study. It seemed the likely place she would find any evidence of her late mother; even Rowena wasn’t allowed in his study, and it was right next door to their bedchambers. Finally she found what she was looking for: a trunk tucked away in a dark corner, under a stack of papers. Inside was all the letters Mercy had sent to him over the years…he’d kept every single one. Sometimes there were gifts or objects: a souvenir from here, a pressed flower from there, animal bones, natural stones, even a handmade musical instrument. Hester would have loved to have sat there all through the night reading them, but she didn’t want Rowena to catch her. But she scanned a few of the letters, the contents filling her with both warmth and sadness…from what she could tell, they really had loved each other…
She noticed each letter was signed ‘Mercy’, the looped tail of the ‘y’ making a fish shape. But Hester hurried through the letters until she found what she most wanted to see. It was her. There she was, in a slightly damaged sepia photograph, smiling up at her with dark deep eyes. Hester took the photograph back to her own chambers, making sure to leave her father’s study exactly as she had found it, promising to herself to put the photograph back the following night.

Of course, she didn’t. It was the first time in her life that Hester got to ‘know’ her mother better. She was such a warm and beautiful woman, with a laugh that just seemed to chase all your fears away. Photograph Mercy told Hester stories – oh, such stories! Tales of travelling the world, or seeing all kind of sights and sounds. Tales of rivers, mountains, deserts and cities. It was no wonder that as Hester grew up, she starting picking up an interest for the Gypsy lifestyle. She had decided that as soon as she was old enough, she was going to see the world and travel the lands, just as her mother had. And then she would have stories to tell her children – perhaps she could even bring her children up with the Gypsy way of living!

Of course, this romantic idea didn’t last. As Hester grew into a young woman, in came the responsibilities. She was seventeen now. Soon she would have to find work…all the girls in the Willow Household were expected to become well respected governesses. The idea did not appeal to Hester at all – she did not want to become a governess. In fact over the years, something else had caught her attention: paintings. It wasn’t completely unheard of for women of the upper and middle class to become artists…surely she could pursue that career? But no, Rowena was quite adamant that a governess was the right career choice for her, and a governess she would be.
And Hester tried – she really did try…but as she got ready to leave for the new house she’d be working at, she couldn’t help but have one last journey into those paintings…just one…

Who knows, perhaps it was all because of that final visit into the Willow paintings, that she didn’t become a governess in the end?

She visited Heretta in her punting boat last of all, seating beside her as her silent male companion punted the boat down the stream. Hester explained the situation to Heretta; of her new job, and of how she would most likely not see her again for many years.
But Heretta surprised her. She told Hester, that although she did not know whether her ‘real’ counterpart was still alive, she knew herself: if she was alive there was every chance she world take a liking to the young girl. If she knew about her predicament, why, perhaps she could offer her a way to escape the role of governess? An old lady Heretta would be now…and an old lady like herself was sure to need some female assistance and company, with old age setting on. Of course it wasn’t ideal, but it would give her a respectful paid job so her family couldn’t complain, and it would be better than forcing herself to pursue a career as governess for the rest of her life. And there was the added bonus of getting to meet her grandmother in person…the woman she had gotten to know so well and love all these years.

After returning from the painting, now full of hope, Hester made one last unauthorised journey to her father’s study. She searched for any information on the Willows, this time – and she did find it: a letter from her grandmother, the address of the sender printed on the back. Of course, it was just a shot…but supposing she was still there? The letter was dated several years ago…but there was still a chance…

Of course, she could not ask her father about it directly; not only was he away on business, but there was no guarantee he would have listened to her protests. No; she had to find her grandmother first. If she could get the real Heretta Willow on her side…then perhaps her hopes of becoming an artist weren’t as hopeless as it seemed. She left him a note, however, to explain where she’d gone in case they got worried, when her work placement would undoubtedly contact them to find out why Hester hadn’t arrived at the house yet. She also said a last good bye to her mother, placing the photograph beside the note.

She added to the note:
”You were right. She was very beautiful. I only wish I could have known her like you did. You must have loved each other very much.”

And signing her name, she left the study. Her bags already packed ready for the morning, she blew a kiss to the paintings and left Willow Estate in the dead of night, wanting to reach her grandmother’s home as soon as she could.

And that next day, was possibly the happiest day of Hester’s life. Heretta Willow was still alive – and at the address the letter had been sent from. The albino girl almost broke down on the doorstep weeping…much to Heretta’s bewilderment. She was quite shocked to see Hester at her house; she and Roderick had fallen out with each other many years ago. She had heard of Hester though, and welcomed the girl inside. After getting acquainted with each other, Hester explained her predicament. Her grandmother sympathised, as the ‘young’ Heretta in the painting had predicted. The next few days weren’t the easiest, to say the least, but Heretta supported her granddaughter every step of the way. Arguments tossed back and forth, accusations and insults made, with Rowena and Hester’s half siblings calling Hester a ‘disgrace’ to the family. How dare she rudely neglect her duties as a governess, to runaway to Heretta Willow of all people? Was she that ungrateful that the wretch would disobey her own family’s wishes? After all the kindness they had shown by giving her a home, looking after her as if she was their own…and this was how she repaid them? And as for Heretta, well…Rowena wanted a word with her. In fact at one point they did, the two of them so riled up with each other that they looked ready to tear at each others throats. And still, Heretta stood her ground. And boy, did Heretta stand her ground. Hester had never seen an old woman look so fierce and intimidating before! Her presence during that heated argument was enough to scare the living daylights out of Xegaul himself! Heretta could be a terrifying old woman indeed. Rowena, defeated and at a loss for words, made a hasty and rather embarrassed retreat. Hester was unable to believe it. Rowena wasn’t the sort of woman to just back down from a fight…and yet Heretta had. After that day, Hester developed a whole new respect for the woman.

Of course, the fight was not over, Rowena was an adamant woman…and she did not like to lose. The fact that Heretta Willow and her granddaughter had gotten her to back down, did not make her happy. It did not make her happy at all. So she came back the next day with two officers in tow, accusing Heretta of kidnapping Hester and demanding that Hester was returned to their care. Hester was quite clearly delusional and not the brightest of girls; it was in her best interest for her to be returned home, despite her own wishes. Hester was horrified at the measures Rowena had taken. She knew very well that Rowena didn’t care for her well being; she only cared for her pride, and to uphold the family’s reputation. And although the police did not find any solid grounds on which to arrest Heretta, Hester was to be sent back to the Willow Estate…Hester was devastated. She knew that as soon as she was there. She would be escorted by Rowena herself to her new place of work…and that would be the end of it, not unless she wanted to disgrace the family even more and disappoint her father.

Although, speaking of her father…he had returned to the town earlier that morning. As the officers went to escort Hester back home, Roderick turned up at the scene, Hester’s note in his hand. He drew the officers aside, having a quiet word with them. After some discussion, they left empty handed. Before Rowena could protest, he put up a hand and drew her aside too. Voices escalated, but eventually Rowena quietened down. Roderick then turned to Hester, expressing his disappointment about her decision…and how angry he was that she had gone through his personal belongings.
However, what he said next surprised Hester. He said that although it was not what he wanted…he supported her, and gave Hester his blessing. She would be allowed to stay with Heretta.
“Whatever path you wish to pursue in life,” he told her. “You will still be my daughter, and I won’t disown you from making your own decisions.” He shook her hand awkwardly, leaving a note in her hand as he walked away with Rowena, returning back to the Willow Estate.

The note read simply:
”You are more like her than you know. I hope you understand that I always have, and always will, be here for you.”

After that, things seemed to settle down. Hester became Heretta’s female companion, assistant and personal maid, for which Heretta paid her respectfully for. Heretta lived in a much more modest setting than anything as grand as the Willow Estate. It was a small, nicely furnished house just outside of town, looking out over rolling hills, and half-hidden by trees. As the two women got to speak with other more and more, Heretta was surprised at how much her granddaughter knew about her. It was then Hester decided to explain to her how it had come about. Heretta was stunned by Hester’s stories of ‘talking paintings’. After hearing about it, she was more willing than ever before to help support Hester’s talents; clearly the girl had some sort of gift with images and art. She gave the girl a room as her own ‘workshop’, and giving her the tools to help her pursue art in her spare time. It was during this time, that Hester discovered how to ‘make’ pictures real, and more and more time was devoted to her talents. Heretta gave the girl enough freedom to make of her time what she wished; so long as she got her job done that she was paid for, of course. And that is what Hester did. Her grandmother’s house was the perfect setting from which to develop as a budding artist, and thoughts of making both her mother and father proud, Hester aimed to become a well respected Artist, even in these struggling times of depression. Hester had been luckily in that (so far), her family had remained reasonably unaffected…but she had witnessed what the depression had done to others. And she knew that once she begun her career as an artist, she would be struggling against the depression too. Heretta wasn’t going to be there to support her forever…the girl realised this. One day, she would have to make her way in the world, earning a living completely on her own. And she still dreamt of travelling…that dream had never quite left her, even after all this time.

So of course when she heard about Meka, she knew she had to go there and see it for herself. If she wants to make it as an artist, she needs to get away from the town where she lived, and go out into the world. Taking a plunge in the deep end, Hester left her family completely behind her, hoping to make a living on her own, and prove to her family that she’s not a disgrace to their name. There’s something about a city in the sky that intrigues Hester, and fascinates her – with such new sights to see and such beauty, to her it looks like an artist’s paradise. Fulfilling her dreams of travelling the world and finding an exciting new subject to study for her artwork…Meka seems like a good place to start…

Yes, Doctress, this is excellent, just the sort of detail I'm looking for. Forgive me, it may take awhile for me to read the whole thing, but she seems like she can be a good character thus far :)

Heheh...well thank you.
I think I got so caught up in creating the character, I forgot I was writing a CS and not a book. D:

But it was a fun CS to write. First time that I've actually enjoyed writing the History section for a character! XD

@Doctress:

Alright, I looked it over. I'm glad you outlined what her powers can or can not do and their limits, this makes it much easier to decide whether you were in or not. I also like how you tied her story to her powers and how they, helped her in a way, to become who she is today. To be honest, I was sort of nervous about her painting powers, but since you HAVE placed limitations for yourself I WILL allow it. I'll keep an eye open, however. Speaking of eyes...LOVE the Rapture designs, I can't tell you how much that means to me :) And her albinism is interesting since albinism is actually quite common in Xephamor, quite common indeed. Don't be surprised if she meets anyone who are just as pale as her ;D (this doesn't include Ima, since she is actually not an albino)

But what I love most is the fact that she would be PERFECT for the next chapter (especially the whole thing about the Gypsy lifestyle), and I can't wait until she starts interacting with Kharrighan <3

AND she's an artist. That's a plus from me.

So yeah, she get's an APPROVAL from me. Can't promise you that she would actually get a chance to use her "traveling" powers\. What you see and when will pretty much depend entirely on where you go as certain locations have different pictures/photos, some have none at all. But I'm sure you know this already.

I also have a certain NPC she might like (Mastermind may or may not recognize him).

If you need any help on giving her something to do, ask me. This will most likely become some short introductory posts as well for her, until I move on to the next chapter.

That is, after I get done with Couch's and Cheese's parts.

As for Soul and Acktoo. I'll most likely discuss things with them via PM if their parts don't finish before the new chapter.

I'm pretty sure I don't need to worry about MM's bit.

Yes, I realised as I was creating it that her powers are pretty specific, and if the opportunity doesn't come along to use it, I honestly don't mind. It's more there for the sake of her past exploits, rather than her future ones. But If I do get a chance to use it in the IC, then that's a bonus :3

Alright, thanks, I'll let you know if I get stuck for something.
