Cerys

Appearance

A woman of approximately 5'8", Cerys is athletic in her build, though her non-existent fitness regime does not leave her to display muscles, and she is best described as somewhat slender. Strong legs from years of experience upon horseback are well balanced by gently curving hips, a lean torso, and full breasts.

Cerys' skin is fair, and does not take well to prolonged exposure to the sun. Her hair is the darkest shade of brown, before it hits black, reaching to just below her breasts. With natural curls, her hair has been shaped to frame her face. She has cool blue eyes, which are pale in shade, though in some light they appear darker, with a hazel or green tinge. Her eyes are deep-set and her cheekbones high, though her cheeks are full, avoiding the gaunt appearance, which is only accentuated by the use of charcoals to frame her eyes. Her features are pleasing with a thin nose and lightly tinted lips. A strong jawline often gives Cerys a perturbed, if not cross appearance, though a quick smile all but remedies such thoughts.

The young woman holds herself with the presence of a woman who is both comfortable and confident in her skin. She wears her emotions on her sleeve, quick to smile and quicker to scowl. In terms of garb, darker clothing is the more practical option for all on Idalos, as they are substantially cheaper and easier to maintain. Cerys is no exception for, though she nigh on always appears to be clad elegantly, she prefers to wear items based on their practicality.
Personality

Ambitious
: the youngest of five, Cerys was never one to be overshadowed by her siblings. Determined, resourceful and lucky enough to have parents who could afford a good education for her, Cerys never disappointed her parents. Like all parents who love and nurture their children, they believed in great things for her future.. more here.

Assertive
: about decisiveness and assertiveness here.

Impulsive
: with two parents and four older siblings all watching after the baby of the family, a young Cerys found herself wanting for nothing. Though she learned with age and experience the necessary life-skills to survive and succeed alone in this world, Cerys had a privileged childhood, and a proclivity for spontaneity and carelessness endured through adolescence and, to a lesser extent, into adulthood. Now, this penchant manifests most obviously when strong emotions overwhelm her.

Loyal
: whether we are referring to her friends, her family or the organisations she associates with, there is no doubt that Cerys is loyal to all. For some, she would sacrifice her own life for the sake of those she loves or respects. In particular, Cerys is devoted to The Seekers, a faction dedicated to the continuance of the arcane arts.

Proud
: about pride here.

Temperamental
: about her mood here.

History

The youngest, and only, daughter of the Yvarye family, Cerys’ mother and father were already rather long in the tooth at her birth. In fact, many believed that mother and babe would not survive the birth. Both did, however, and her parents were ecstatic at having finally had a daughter to dress up and spoil. And, oh, how they spoilt her, with dresses and toys that most children would envy. With dark hair and pale eyes, she wasn’t considered to be a natural beauty, and she had inherited the harsh Yvarye features. But even as a small child, there was something very alluring and welcoming about her countenance as her mother raised her and taught her all the etiquette of proper and privileged society.

At six, as Videnese law dictated, Cerys was sent to the Viden academy to begin her primary education. During these years, the young girl was considered to be average at best, with no exceptional academic talents, though her instructors often remarked that she was uncommonly observant and pensive of the world around her. It was also noted that, at such a young age, she seemed to have unprecedented rhetorical skills - even unwitting adults unconsciously fell to her charms.

Her parents believed that it was the influence of her five older brothers, all of whom ranged from eight to twenty years older than her. On the one hand, she had to compete with the boisterous nature all testosterone-fuelled males had. But her brothers would never allow her to sink to their level, so she needed to find other weapons to combat them, so her tools became her words. The flip side, of course, was that she was the little princess born into a much older family. With three grown brothers at birth, she was nigh on blessed with the love of extra parents. Even her youngest brother adored and protected her.

With seven devoted family members, Cerys knew nothing but acceptance, and it allowed her the perfect environment to carve out a personality without fear of judgement. Her brothers also shared wisdom of their manipulations of their parents, which she took on board and perfected. Though not necessarily academically gifted, she had a knack for understanding people, and knew the strategies of mild manipulation. These skills only developed further as Cerys entered secondary education, where, instead of focusing on the history of Idalos, or the anatomy of the human body, she worked on convincing her fellow students to complete her work for her.

It was in her penultimate year of compulsory education at the Viden Academy that her family was approached with an offer from one Verin Rush, a scholar in the Viden Academy. He had noticed her potential, potential that Verin’s twin brother, Venser, would be interested in. It was the first that Cerys had heard of The Seekers, a faction dedicated to the study of magic, and Verin Rush did not do into extensive detail, but the thirteen year old was impulsive, and she accepted there and then.

But Verin Rush was not someone she would ever see again, nor would she ever meet the twin brother. Instead, she was apprenticed to a warlock whom she only knew by the name of Tomás. He knew of a variety of arcana, though his unique speciality - surprising for Viden, she discovered - was the art of Empathy. It was what Cerys had apparently shown potential for, and what she would first be exposed to.

Her training was uncommonly slow for, although she possessed the natural prerequisites needed for this branch of Arcana, Cerys had none of the self-control needed to progress in the magic. Not only was she impulsive, but Cerys was also exceptionally temperamental. This was something that Tomás worked tirelessly to rectify, but to no avail. The best he could do was forcing hours upon hours of meditation on his young apprentice in order to give her patience and understanding of her own emotions. Perhaps then, he hoped, she would be able to control her own emotional urges, rather than succumb to the overwhelming pull of Empathetic Arcana.

For the next four years, Cerys would leave her family household each morning and join Tomás for further teaching and training. He was a fair instructor, even his frustration at her lack of emotional control was well hidden. Just like everyone else around her, he fell for her charms too, finding her innocence and naïvety sweet… if a little dangerous, particularly to herself. Whilst helping her to build up her abilities, his focus was always on a passive and meditative stance, rarely allowing her to delve into active uses of Empathy.

Her apprenticeship was never completed, however, and her control was left unchecked, for one particularly cold winter, in the Arc 714, scores of Videnese citizens fell to a bout of influenza, Tomás among them. Even his strength was not enough to fight off the infection, nor could the exemplary medical centre treat him. Left without a mentor, the half-trained apprentice was removed from her family and shipped across the world to the southern city of Ne’haer, where another Warlock, a woman by the name of Roslyn, had offered to complete her training.
