So...I've always had trouble with actually "keeping" OCs. By that I mean that I make OCs, write a bio for them, sometimes make a few dolls of them and then completely forget about them. I'm determined to actually keep at least a few OCs, so I'm going to put all my "main" OCs and their bios (A.K.A not characters who I randomly made up and called "an OC" but never even developed their character) in this story. It will be added to, updated, etc. as I develop my characters. Some I adopted from others or are OCs for someone else's story, which I'll say if that's the case. I have a few older OCs which really need to be updated, but I won't include those here (until I get around to updating their character/story).
Appearance Description: (Eye Colour, Hair Colour, Skin Colour, Weight, Height, Distinguishing Features)
Adopted/OC for someone else's story:
Name: Seraphine (middle/last name TBD)
Nicknames: Maybe Sera, though generally goes by just "Seraphine"
Age: 19/20 (She has a birthday at one point in her story)
Appearance Description: Golden b.rown eyes, white hair that goes past her hips, fairly pale skin. She has a delicate, slim figure, small shoulders and hips that are wider than her shoulders. She has a soft-looking face, except for her nose, which is very distinguished compared to her other features.
Race/Ethnicity/Species: Human, Elithan descent
World: A world that's somewhat similar to the Rococo time period, taking some elements from life at that time (Mostly fashion-wise) and a few different elements. Seraphine lives in the country "Elith", which is a country in what is the equivalent of Europe.
Personality: Curious, Loyal, Kind, Generous, generally calm and agreeable, though fairly opinionated about certain things, especially when she sees something that she doesn't think is right. Things that are unfair and unjust anger her, and she'll sometimes express her opinions at bad times, which can prove to be an issue.
Other: Her mother died from a sickness when Seraphine was 8.
Related Characters: Her father, The Prince (her eventual husband and the king), and her Grandmother.
Occupation: At the start of the story she is her father's apprentice, learning to be a healer. But she ends up being the Queen of Elith.
Interests/Skills: Before becoming queen, when not assisting her father, she would often sit up in a tree with her nose in a book. Whether she'd be reading about medicine, science, history, or even fiction, it was always her favourite past time from when she was a child, and her mother taught her to read. She was a very promising in the art of healing, though she discontinued her career as a healer when she became queen, since she had other duties to attend to. She still assisted the Castle healer when needed, though.
Style/Aesthetic: Seraphine doesn't have a particular colour combo or specific aesthetic. Before she became queen, she would generally wear either an ankle-length dress and some boots she could walk in, or a simple button up top with an ankle length skirt, in more muted colours, with some simpler design, along with her teal healer's apprentice robe/apron thing if she was working. If she wasn't working, than she would still be required to wear a gold pin which has the country's coat of arms combined with the medical symbol, in order to be identified as someone The style of the High Court is Rococo based.
Story Summary: She was born and raised in a middle class family, daughter of the village healer. One day, when she was out picking herbs, she saved the prince from a group of bandits. The prince insisted they meet again, and eventually they fell in love. She marries the prince, who has a kind heart, but over time he's consumed by greed and power. She herself starts to feel herself being corrupted. To save herself from becoming like her husband, she runs away in the dead of night. She stumbles upon a cottage, and in order to take shelter from the raging storm outside, she asks the old lady living there if she can take shelter there for the night. It turns out the lady is a witch, who helps her rid herself of the corruption in her heart. They devise a plan to save the king from his own greed and power-lust, before it's too late.
Adopted/OC for someone else's story: Adopted by @RavenSong, though it seems she has deleted her account
Name: Otilie Isa Maybury-Lewis (OH-til-ee. Pronounced like "Natalie" but instead of "Na" at the beginning the sound "Oh")
Nicknames: Her parents used to call her Lotte and Tillie, but since their deaths she refuses to let anyone call her by anything but her full name, or "Mademoiselle /Ms. Maybury-Lewis"
Appearance Description: Dark b.rown eyes, light b.rown skin, mid-back length wavy hair, that fades from light b.rown to medium b.rown. Has a lightly freckled, angular face with a sharp nose and large eyes, as well as thick lips. She is 5' tall, and has a curvy figure, with wide shoulders and hips, and a thin waist. She has a very proper demeanor and her posture makes her seem important.
Race/Ethnicity/Species: Mixed Race-A European mother (French and Italian roots) and a South-African father
World: Our earth, but taking place in @MissLepusLuna's story "Curiosity Keepers"
Personality: Reserved, untrusting, and is generally very solemn. But if you manage to gain her trust (which is a difficult feat) she is unbelievably loyal, and will in no way betray your trust. She is extremely intelligent and clever, and does well when faced with on the spot problems, especially puzzle-like problems. On the outside she may seem to lack much emotion, but inside she's dealing with the grief of her parents' death, the very reason why she's as untrusting as she is.
Other: The curiosity she uses is a small golden knife, decorated with red gemstones. Despite it's presumed purpose, it has the power to heal, though she can use it as a weapon if needed. She has strong powers.
Related Characters: Her mother "Adelia Maybury", and her father "Victor Lewis"
Occupation: A Collector (for more info see @MissLepusLuna's "Curiosity Keeper's Info Dump" Story).
Interests/Skills: Like both her father and mother, she recieved a high education, and is extremely well read, somethin that she both enjoys and finds important. She's also well-trained in various martial arts, and is incredibly good at solving puzzles and problems.
Style/Aesthetic: A red/black colour combo and Victorian-esque fashion. She always wears dark eye makeup and deep red lipstick, with accents of gold or Golden-yellow.
Story Summary: Otilie was a b.right child, excelling at academics. She had a happy childhood with 2 wonderful, kind parents. A "Perfect" childhood, or as close as you can get to it. Until that one day...the day that changed her life. When she was only 10 years old, her father's most trusted colleague and friend murdered both her parents, while she was at a friend's house. The police never caught him, though she always knew it was him. She was taken in by her mother's cousin, who lived alone until then. From then on she was never trusting, and always kept to herself. She was recruited by the Eventide Society cabinet, and is a powerful collector.
Adopted/OC for someone else's story: Adopted from @MissLepusLuna, Otilie is an OC for her story, "Curiosity Keepers"
Name: Ta'riah (Tah-ree-ah)
Age: 25,000 Tanjian Years (Equivalent to a person past adolesence and into adulthood, but still fairly young.)
Appearance Description: Wavy black hair with a slight blue tinge, which reaches about halfway down her thigh (Usually styled with b.raids and such, or just put in an updo). Teal eyes, milky white skin, 7 feet tall, slender. She has a slightly round face, with somewhat thick eyeb.rows, and soft facial features.
Personality: Quiet, curious, not very sociable, logical, loving. She's a scientist at heart, and highly values knowledge and logic, though she's caring. Since her husband's disappearance, she's almost always lonely.
Other: She is in the middle-high class of the Tanjian society
Related Characters: Her missing (and possibly deceased) husband, her younger sister, her parents, and her only servant/hand maid.
Interests/Skills: Astronomy (It acts as an interest, occupation, but also a comformting sight when she's feeling lonely.), music (she plays an instrument similar to a flute, though not professionally.), reading (mostly non-fiction).
Style/Aesthetic: Layered translucent clothing on top of more opaque ones, mainly in blues, purples, teals/turquoises, and magenta, light and dark shades. She generally only wears long dresses on special occasions, preffering pants for more practicality on a daily basis (though still with translucent layers). Design-wise, she likes her outfits to be decorated with some beads, flowers, and sometimes glitter, though still keeping the outfit practical. Her hair is generally kept at least partially up, with a b.raided crown, or completely b.raided/in some sort of updo.
Story Summary: As a child, born in a somewhat rich family (middle-high class, invited to only the bigger celeb.rations and parties), she was often subject to being scorned for not "acting as a young lady should" and following all the rules of social ettiquete at the high-class parties. She never liked putting up an act, for her heart yearned to be outside, playing and exploring. In her adolescence she began to realize how wasteful the parties often were, while others couldn't even afford 3 meals a day. So she began to steal food from the celeb.rations to distribute them among those who needed it more. This continued for a long while, until she was inevitably caught. The punishment was minor, as they only knew of the one time. She stopped stealing from the parties, though she did make it a habit to take any extra food from her own family's meals and distribute it. Fast forward into her early years of adulthood, she falls in love, and gets married. She becomes an astronomer, and with her husband has a house built which doubles as an observatory. For a solid few thousand years, she's truly happy, until her husband goes missing one night. No one knew where he went or had gone, but Ta'riah suspected he was in fact taken. After his disappearance, Ta'riah became lonely, devoting herself to her work, and rarely going out, especially when it came to parties, which she didn't always enjoy anyways. She still believes that he was in fact taken, as he would never leave in an instant like that, and wishes everyday that he'll come back. But one night, after an important celeb.ration, she comes back, to find a note, and all it says is "I'M ALIVE. HELP ME."
Adopted/OC for someone else's story: From @Sorachan's story "Tales of Tanjia", though the OC is not adopted from someone else.
