One blessed by the stars filling the sky. An adventurer searching for secrets lost in time. Experienced alchemist with a habit of mishaps and mayhem. Dependable, charming, and always up to let the wind guide her to her destination, Mist Desiree claims to be nothing more than she is, and everything that she's not at the same time. Her life is one she wishes to live freely, to do what she pleases when she pleases to do it, and to break any chains may hold her back. The desire to discover all the secrets of the world and record them for future generations keeps her active, and while she will never abandon this pursuit of knowledge, she will openly admit that her family comes first, and that means slowing down a bit until she gives birth to her son. Only a little! There's plenty of trouble she can stir up around the house, of that she has no doubt. Care to test out the latest potion she's created? It won't cause any bad things to happen to you! ...probably~
Her height is unimpressive, being only five fulms and three ilms. While on the shorter side, her curves and ample bosom make up for it in physical appeal, and she likes to show off her toned legs. Pristine painted nails, glitter near the eyes, and the scent of lavender and vanilla further accent her overtly feminine style. The scars and markings she does have, she keeps covered usually and applies various oils and ointments to let time soften them. Most commonly found in pinks, purples, blues, reds, and whites. She tends to lean toward a strong gily style, liking how skirts, stockings, heels, and dresses look on her. While she's not against pants or shorts, they aren't something that her wardrobe tends to have a lot of. Flowers are one of her favorite accessories, and because of this, she often has some in her hair. Most of the corsages are ones she's crafted with flowers grown in her garden. Her secondborn, Seyka Haillenarte, takes care of her wardrobe proper, sewing all her clothing and adding personal flares to them.
Philosophy & Ideals
"For the greater good of the star."
It's a simple, basic principle that she follows, and she considers herself to be eternally in service to the world as a whole. She wants to protect it and take care of it, no matter how grand or small those measures may end up being, and believes that it is important to live life with as few regrets as possible.
"Look to those who walked before to lead those who walk after."
To gather information, to record whatever she finds, and to leave something behind to help those that will one day walk similar paths is important to her. She wants to make sure that the children of tomorrow, of the unforeseen future, will have something to look at. Because of this, she has begun to take on the mentality of a teacher.
- Horrific sense of direction. Often gets lost even on familiar roads.
- Becomes obsessive when working on a task. Forgets about basic self-care.
- Chews on things if she can't solve a problem. Her nails, hair, gum, etc.
She was born during a time of uncertainty and restlessness. But in the quiet hamlet of her youth, such things did not matter to her. All that mattered was her mother, father, three older brothers, and the farm that she wanted to spend forever on. The laughter, the tears, the little bits of exploration mingling with childish angst, all of it helped to shape her into the person she would one day become, and her gaze never strayed too far from the stars shining brightly in the night sky. Captured by their essence, begging to read the secrets within those vast heavens. Among the fields of grain and gold, she felt at peace. It would be a peace not meant to last.
A night of fire and blood took it all from her. Those who survived the bandit attack left together, hoping to rebuild their small town. They didn't. Instead they scattered to the wind, and through it all, she clung to a childhood friend that slowly became something more. Together they grew, they found small moments of happiness, and strove to create something more than either of them could ever expect. Oh, how they did. They did so much. At the lake where their village once was, they built a life for themselves and settled down to carry on. At sixteen, she gave birth to her first child, a healthy little girl named Alysine (now known as Sanary). Two years later, Astraenne (now known as Seyka) followed.
Motherhood suited her well, and while she was happy to play her part at her husband's side, the distance between them grew. He, too, had a part to play, and it drew them further down the path of becoming strangers. By the time any of them realized how serious the sickness in her began to grow, it was too late to stop it. Barely thirty four summers passed her by before she laid upon her death bed. Obsessed with finding a way to cure her, her husband bound her body and soul to crystal sleep. It would be many, many centuries later befor she opened her eyes again, emerging from the lake she loved so much, struggling to become adjusted to life in a new era in a world that changed so much while she slumbered.
Moving to Shirogane has done wonders for Mist. With the ocean literally serving as her front yard, she often ventures out to gather reagents along the beach, and spends too much time in the hidden hot springs to pass the time. Her time in the First lead her to reunite with an old love, and despite her worry of the overexposure of aspected Light aether, the two are expecting a little boy toward the end of spring.
I'm a bit of an early bird, so my role play hours are on the unfortunate side. Eastern time zone, woo! I play on Mateus, though I'm quite happy to visit any world within the Crystal data center. While I do enjoy RP, I do PVE and PVP actively, and always like just playing the game with people. So if you need someone to run content with, don't hesitate to ask!
I, personally, have no issue with adult and mature content. That said, I also don't go actively looking for it, and never start something with that as an intention. If things happen, then they happen, and I'll roll with it.
On Plot Involvement
With how she is set up, she can easily fit in almost any plot or scene as a supporting character. She's not against taking center stage and playing the role of the leading heroine, mind you, but she's completely happy to let others have their shining moment and further their stories. Because of this, she's a great ally -- or can, in the right situation, be an annoying hinderance, if needed.
Bend, do not break. I'm more than comfortable with people messing around with lore to make a character work. That said, if there is something that glaringly and fundamentally goes against some things that are set in stone within the game's world, I'm probably going to shy away from it. I'd rather see someone actively try and make an idea work then brush it aside and expect people to accept it.
