Appearance

Sera's gotten good at hiding herself from others. To most everyone, she looks to be a woman of impeccable beauty. Rich, raven hair falls well below her waist, often styled in several braids, knots, and ties. She has high cheek bones to compliment round, earthy eyes. Her skin shines golden in the sun, and her eyebrows seem just as sharp as her nails, which stand sharpened as knives two inches from the tips of her fingers.

To the few unlucky enough to see her in her Shadow Form are to see something grotesque and amazing. Her hair lengthens and turns into dark tendrils of shadow which move and sway with a life of their own. Darkness spreads from the crown of her head, to the smallest of her toes. the glowing skin that before exuded beauty dims and dims until no light is bright enough to lighten it's shade. her eyes become a shocking, cruel amber and her nails become long, sharp daggers primed to cut any flesh it feels.

Personality

The first lesson Sera learned is to be grateful for being born a Naer, for they are the children of the wisest, most cunning Immortal.

The second, that the world is hers to take, but it will not offer itself to her. It will run from her like deer, and she must chase it down and gut it's throat to taste the majesty of its blood.

The third, and most important, is that her family is sacred, and every action she takes is to help them thrive.

These core tenants are at the heart of every action she takes. Family. Entitlement. Superiority. Violence. Desperation. Greatness.

This isn't always readily apparent. She delights in the company of others, in good wine, good humor, good friends. She's not one to be flashy, most of the time. She dresses plain because she knows she's beautiful without ornamentation. She only drinks half the wine as those around her, to assure she's always the most clearheaded in the room. By many accounts, she may come across amicable in most positions.

Until you hurt her twin brother, or get in her way. Then you will not find anything she does amicable.
History

Serani Milanne was born three minutes ahead of her twin brother, Xviaan; a fact that she hasn't let him live down. Their mother became pregnant to a man while travelling. The father had a business venture in Viden that he was bound to. He asked her to stay, but she left before he learned of her pregnancy.

Still, even as their mother and her four sisters raised the twins, they told them of their father - who he is, where he lives; her mother spoke of him with far more affection than her sisters liked. After all, he was a human, and he sired a human. The aunts of the family doted upon Sera, and hated Xviaan. They wondered how such a wonderful child could have been born at the same time as such a terrible one.

As a result, her relationship to Xviaan was complicated. As a twin, so much of their existence is shared. While many associate the phrase "my other half" with their romantic partners, Sera associates it to her brother. She holds no secrets to him. They play pranks together. They fight together. They do everything together; even when the family told her she was less for it. For her, it was a battle between her core tenants. Was her brother less than her, if the Naer are ineherently better; but does that not disregard the third tenant, that family is sacred?

For the most part, she agrees with the third tenant above anything else - and her mother did everything she could to foster love between her children, despite the words of her sisters. But Sera could not be immune to being fed messages of superiority her whole life, which in turn impacted her twin. She's beaten him once, out of fear that if he had the strength to excise his anger against their aunts, they would kill him. In her mind, better to beat him down and keep him alive than him being stupid and getting himself killed. Her brother started drinking to cope with the pain at a young age, becoming a high-functioning alcoholic. Things almost became normal; Serani was becoming a prized warrior, and moving up in the world. She had just received an elaborate set of tattoos that let her blend in with the world outside Augiery; She was about to leave on her first major assassination assignment.

That's when it all fell apart.

Her brother got into a terrible altercation with one of the aunts while home alone with her, resulting in that aunt's death. Xviaan was going to die for this, and she knew that. She had to make a choice - to give up a homeland that doted upon her every need, where she would become great and powerful one day, or watch her brother die.

She chose the former; they sent a message to Viden, begging their father to extract them, while they hid in any corner of Augiery they could find. Sera kept up appearances; she did her jobs, reported back home. Everyone knew she would know where her brother is, and she would say she knew nothing. She had a tough balancing act between sneaking him food and resources while they waited for their father to fetch him, and making sure everyone knew where she was at all times to avoid suspicion. By the time her father came and there was a plan to extract Xviaan, she was supposed to leave on a boat to handle a major assassination contract. She once again had to choose; save her other half, or become a part of the culture who ostracized him. Once again, she chose the former, but a resentment began growing that few could quell.

Their father was another problem entirely. Having never known that he had children, he was stuck between trying to get them up the continent safely, trying to parent them and at the same time try to understand who they had become. Their relationship to their father is new, and strained. He wants to curb Sera's attitude, and Xviaan's drinking, but he hasn't been around for most of their life. He doesn't know how to approach this, nor the children him.

The siblings moved to Viden with their father, where they learned he is in a smuggling family. For the most part, they just smuggle alcohol into the city. But smuggling work often needs someone to get their hands dirty.

It's a good thing that Sera's used to having dirty hands.
Housing

Xviaan and Sera have a small home they share. Combined, they have the same square footage per person as the starting package, but the space is a bit better broken up; they both have very small bedrooms, with little room for much beyond a small bed and wardrobe, and a shared living space where they prepare meals, play games at the dining table, or write letters and other paperwork at the desk in the corner. Sera's half of the living space is exceedingly tidy, and she regulary taps and listens to loose floorboard and other hideaways, in case Xviaan has started a new secret cache of booze.
