Play By: Taylor Marie Hill
Distinguishing Features:

Personality



Personality:

Confident and a little spoiled Renata is a young woman who sees herself going far in life. Raised in a prominent Aristo household Renata was always encouraged to think she was just little bit better at most things. Having no other siblings to ration the attention out to, Renata grew up under the watchful, often critical eyes of her parents and their staff.  She is accustomed to being alone, but prefers the presence of others.  Renata is fashionable, and well put together. Her tastes in clothes can be a bit bold, but it's only because she finds there is beauty in the unique and if it makes her memorable, then even better.  Aware of her own attractiveness she is guilty of sometimes being vain and self involved, and she would argue that confidence not a bad trait to have. She is her biggest cheerleader and is unabashed to express it.

Renata’s youth makes her feel invincible, after all, time is on her side. As a fledgeling Healer she understands the that the body has limitations but sometimes takes them for granted. After all, her skills allow her to mend flesh and bone. It gives her mortality a temporary feel. A lover of art, Renata has always believed she is capable of creating beauty through singing, dancing and fashion.  Dance has provided Renata with a way to test her limits while offering an escape from what should be her perfect world.  She especially loves fire dance both for its deeply seeded roots in Dena Nehele culture and also because fire holds special significance to her. Its untamable nature, bold colors and duality call to her. Fire can crackle and warm a home, but if left unattended can render it to ash. She feels nothing else exemplifies Blood spirit more than that.

Renata is not afraid of her own shadow.  Even as sheltered as she was, her bravery did not suffer for it. In fact her aversion to living under her parent’s thumbs has manifested a strong rebellious streak against totalitarian authority. 

This does not make her unreasonable, but sometimes impatient. Renata is used to people skirting around subjects in order not to upset Aristo’s and its become a point of aggravation for her. She is not afraid to tell someone to get to the point, viewing any negative news can't be as bad as having to wait for it.  At the same time, she believes that a person can express themselves succinctly without being cruel. Feeling bullied herself, she cannot tolerate seeing it happen to others and will intervene if needed. 

Renata is honest about her passions and who she is. She does not hide behind disingenuous bravado. Life is about living and not about what other people may think of you. Renata is protective and yearns for a good friend as she finds little in common with those she has cultivated within other families. She is funny, sassy but maybe just a little lonely.



Likes:
  • 1. Dancing/ Fire Performance- Renata loves to use her body to create art. Dancing is an escape, a way to express herself wordlessly. Fire dancing toes the line between beauty and danger. It is a symbol of her culture, especially fire eaters who have tried to tame the flame.  Instead of trying to command the element she looks to become one with it knowing that fire like chaos has no master, has no alliances. It will burn her with its kiss.  She especially enjoys the use of poi chains and rings because it gives the illusion of distance. For Renata it is all about the seduction of the spectacle, drawing eyes exactly where she wants them.

  • 2. Herself- More than anyone else in this world Renata loves herself and she sees nothing wrong with that. Renata’s strongest shield is her self esteem. It can't be worn or beaten down.  She isn't a woman who hides behind a false sense of confidence to mask her insecurities, she doesn't self deprecate to make anyone else feel better, in that sense she is impenetrable. At the same time she does not use her own sense of self worth to bring anyone else down. She is her greatest cheerleader and unafraid to let anyone else know just how amazing she is.

  • 3. Getting into trouble- The most fun a person can have in life comes with consequences.  Renata is prone to small rebellions and challenging the rules. She has a thirst for life and if that gets her into trouble, she's willing to deal with the consequences. As long as no one else is hurt, what's the harm in it? Following the straight and narrow is boring, it's just outside the path where she can have the most fun.


    Dislikes:

  • 1. Ramblers- After having to suffer through years of private tutors, and watching her parents constantly surrounded by people trying to soften bad news has given Renata very little patience for those who just can't seem to get to the point. Life is precious, her time is short and she doesn't want to spend her most perky years listening to someone go on and on about something they could have expressed in just a few sentences.  There is nothing wrong with getting to the point, even when its bad news. Rip the band aid off and move on.

  • 2. Cruelty- Bullies piss her off. Not everyone’s skin is as thick as hers and watching someone tear another person down in order to build themselves up will set her off. She has seen her father tear into a servant, carefully picking apart their spirit and going to every length to make his displeasure known. Its a disgusting trait and the quickest way to upset her.

  • 3. Liars- Renata wants the full story up front, may it be from a patient or anyone expecting to have any kind of relationship with her. Its okay to not want to talk about it, but don't insult her intelligence by feeding her falsehoods and expecting her to swallow it. This is especially true for those she is Healing. Many times they are either too embarrassed or ashamed about how they got hurt, which only makes her job harder. Healing is in the details, and while its considered bad bedside manner to call someone out on it she still hasn't learned the patience to let it go.

    Fears:

  • 1. Her Parents- Have always been authoritative figures. They have high standards and sometimes she feels they expect more out of their investment in her than she is willing to give. It isn't that she fears disappointing them, that's a constant, but that she fears what they would be capable of doing if she did. While they have never physically hurt her, they know how to strike out at the things she truly loves and they aren't against sending her off to be educated privately. Then there is a matter of their anger, there is so much of it and she doesn't exactly trust the look of some of the people to whom they have business dealings with.  Her parents are constantly speaking about the state of Dena Nehele and how something radical must be done to protect Aristo’s like themselves, especially against Lady Vlas’s Court.  They make her feel like there is so much more they aren't telling her and that scares her.

  • 2.  Dogs- While some Landen find the companionship of animals to be cathartic the Blood don't have the best track record with sensitive beings. Dogs in particular have too many teeth for her liking and she doesn't trust that they aren't willing to use them.  They are animals, often found on the streets who bark at her. As much as she would like to say she gets along with dogs, she just doesn't have the blood for it, or rather she does, but the wrong kind. As a young girl she had snuck onto her neighbor’s grounds and explored his maze, only to find herself confronted by what at the time looked like a angry, oversized bear. It rushed and bit down on her arm, dragging her several yards before her screams were heard and someone came to get her. She had never been in so much pain in her life, so now she steers clear of any canines.

  • 3. Drowning- Renata doesn't remember when she became so afraid of this, but its always been with her. Though she can swim, she sticks to the shallows and very rarely, if ever puts her head beneath the water.  She has the same recurring dream, the surface is inches away, there is a shadow hovering over her, she can feel her lungs tighten, but she's sinking and the light shrinks, moving farther and farther away. In her dream she is never pulled up because the darkness takes her, there is a burning in her chest a fire that was her only companion. It's a terrifying experience to awake in such a way, sometimes she can't even move for several minutes after that dream.

    Craft Strengths:

  • 1. Healing Tonics - Collecting herbs, knowing exactly how much to of each to add or at what point they have heated sufficiently has always been a skill Renata has had. She has shown a great aptitude in crafting Healing tonics and brews with added longevity and potency. As she loves to problem solve she likes to find single service solutions such as creating birth control brews that last the full month, or boosting tonics that heal slowly but consistently for a period of time which are best suited for those training  or in high risk jobs where nicks and sprains are an everyday concern. The infusion of chemistry and Craft has always been fascinating to her so it's not uncommon to find her experimenting at the Healer’s conservatory or at home.

  • 2. Witchfire (Whimsy Craft)- Renata can use Witchfire in combination with Whimsy to create the most intricate of illusions.  Instead of only being able to summon the fire she can shape it into anything she likes, from a whip to a stag with large horns slowly circling her with incredible detail. The size and shape of her fire is limited to her imagination. The fire burns a brilliant red, blue, purple or orange depending on its strength and moves as if it holds its own life. Her favorite use of this Craft is to break apart her Witchfire into tiny tiny, candle-less flames that float in the air.

    Craft Weaknesses:

  • 1. Emotional Projection- Renata has never been one to hide her outward state, nor does she feel she has to pretend to be anything she is not. Being so aware of her own emotions she is unable to project the opposite on herself or anyone else for that matter. It may be because she is so self involved but she can't break through that barrier mentally and thus she has difficulty with this Craft and finds it best to avoid all together.

  • 2. Animal Healing- Considering she feels animals are meant to be watched and not meddled with this Craft has never held any appeal.  There are many other, more qualified people to handle animals and she would rather stick to people who are more predictable. As such this Craft was a non starter for her and one she hopes to avoid in the future.


    Life Story

    Family:
    Mother: Tania DelMaro- White - Tiger Eye - Witch (145 AP)
    Father:  Jacen DelMicco- Yellow - Rose - Prince (145 AP)
    Grandmother:  Raquel DelMaro - White - Yellow - Witch (129 AP)







    History:

    Tania DelMaro grew up in a prominent house in Sevastapol. Her father was a wealthy merchant and her mother, Raquel, knew how to get her daughter on the right track.  Every aspect of Tania’s life was calculated, from where she would do her studies, who were the right people she should associate with and which parties were the best place to meet them. It was no coincidence that she met Jacen DelMicco a fellow Aristo at one such event. The two hit it off immediately and a courtship followed quickly after. Raquel could not have been more pleased with the match as it opened their textile business into exports and multiplied their assets.  She could not have planned it better herself, but she did.

    Jacen DelMicco had aspirations for greatness, which included a dipping his hand in with the guilds. Houses warred, but allies were abundant.  Tania was supportive and better yet, she injected herself into Jacen’s businesses with gusto. She was a shrewd woman who knew where to invest her time and resources. Their life was perfect, or would be after one small addition.

    Raquel insisted Renata was named after her paternal great grandmother and since the day she held the child, she rarely kept her out of her sight.  Renata wished she could say that her parents had more of a hand in raising her, except in the DelMaro house, business came first, then politics, then her. Except of course to Raquel who encouraged Renata at an early age to seek out her passions. Looking back, it was the only good gift her grandmother had ever given her. 

    It became clear early on that Renata had a gift for Healing, her scent alerting her Grandmother of this at the age of three. She would often tend to her dolls, nursing them back to health whenever they fell off tables or her bed. She had not had much experience with other children and didn't seem at a loss for it.  Everything she ever needed or wanted was given to her as long as she was willing to make a good impression with guests.

    On her eighth birthday she was taken for her Birthright, coming away with an uncut Summer Sky Jewel. This pleased her family as already she had surpassed their own Jewels. Her aptitude for Healing did not become completely apparent until while enjoying a local fair with her mother they happened on a stray dog. Afraid, the beast chose fight versus flight and savaged Renata’s arm. The 8 year old was terrified, clutching her bleeding arm while her mother rushed her to the nearest clinic. There the Healer on duty assessed the damage and noticed much of the skin had been healed. Renata called it “fixing.” 

    Tania seemed to forget the traumatic event and was overjoyed to learn her daughter was already showing prowess in her Caste at such a young age. Plans were formulating in her head, Renata would be a private Healer for many Aristo houses, she would then marry within as she had. Only on that same day Renata had witnessed a show of tumbling acrobats, sword swallowers and the most mesmerizing fire display she had ever seen. The world was so bright and colorful outside of her own home and this left an impression on the small child.

    As she became older and more aware of her surroundings she began to hear the stories of missing children, especially Queen’s and Healers. They were terrifying, and her parents used her awareness to impress the importance of being guarded at all times. It was not as though she was concealed, but she was certainly sheltered.  Things began to change and the world of Politics evolved. Renata did her best to avoid the topic, focusing instead on her lessons. Raquel had made sure her granddaughter was tutored at a very young age, from reading, writing,  arithmetic, even the arts. Renata excelled at the latter and her love for it fueled her compliance with the former.  Once her Healing skills were discovered she was placed under the tutelage of an Aristo Healer who taught Renata about brews and tonics as well as how to assess patients.  Following the formula her grandmother had used previously as it had yielded great results with her own daughter, Raquel began to introduce Renata into Aristo society more fervently.  Attending a party became a requirement. Time she spent away from the kind of dancing she wanted to do. If Renata made friends with the “wrong” kind of person, Raquel made sure that they would be separated, by spreading false rumors or simply encouraging her granddaughter toward the right kind of people.

    Suffocated under her Grandmother’s direction, and her parent’s constant displeasure in everything from her choice of style, to the topics she wished to study, down to her attitude, Renata detached herself as many young adults are prone to do.

    Her father had his opinions when it came to Rilandra Vlas and her new Court and he made sure they were known.  Tania was equal parts perturbed by the new administration.  Lady Vlas was challenging their way of life, and the game that had kept so many Aristo houses in power. Soon there were no more peaceful dinners, not without her father working himself up into a rage over the Queen’s notions.  Slaves were the bricks he had built his business upon and Vlas would ruin that. How could he sustain a business without it?

    As a rare Caste, she needed to be protected for exactly the same reasons her father was lamenting, so why was he arguing so fervently for the very thing he had spent years shielding her from? The hypocrisy was so obvious. His hate for Lady Vlas was counterproductive considering the new administration was trying to change things for the better.  She had made the mistake once of voicing that very opinion which was met with vitriol. Now it wasn't just dinners that were less peaceful.

    Raquel, wanting to encourage Renata back toward a path, learned of a new Healer’s Conservatory opening in Bidea. A visit to the Bidea Conservatory quickly followed. Renata was quickly enamored with the campus and the few instructors she met. Her application was accepted along with two years tuition paid in full. Now Renata hopes that time at the Conservatory will round her as a Healer and provide her with the freedom she desperately craves.

    Character in Play:

    Renata spun the devil sticks on the flat of her hand and considered their weight. The sticks would need to be perfectly balanced if this was to work. She could have opted for the modified Poi torches but the memory of that particular burn was far too fresh in her mind. It would have been one thing if the oil fed flames had knocked her arm, but the fact that it had spiraled out against her breast and neck, inches from her face was enough of a warning. They weren't ready, and neither was she to lose her hair.

    Content with their weight her pinky slipped beneath the bar, trapping it there twirling it between her fingers. This trick was impressive but but very easy and didn't hold the attention of the audience for too long. No, that was left to the fire breathing or the swinging fire chains. It had started simple enough, she would twirl a baton, then the baton was on fire, then the baton turned to two as she got better and better the danger level increased. Renata wasn't content with leaving this futile hobby as it was, no, she wanted more. Of course the more her parents criticism of her art increased, so did her passion for it.

    If it were up to them she would focus completely on her studies. They had tried everything to divert her interest like putting her in piano and violin lessons, all of which she mastered, not because they were particularly interesting, but because it was expected of her. She learned etiquette, and how to properly host a high end party. She knew where all the spoons and forks went and how to fold a napkin twenty different ways, even if that was the job of servants. She was meant to look for imperfections, and correct them. Her job would one day be to be critical of others because she was that much better.

    Whatever.

    Sure she had accidents, horrible burns, even a small scar she refused to heal on her wrist, but as a Healer she could fix any accidents like they never happened. Only she would know and those lessons she learned.  The new Healing school would be a great opportunity to hone her Craft and help others. There was no reason she had to give up dancing, even if it was only for herself. Shit, her parents would lose their minds if she were to perform in the city street like some dirty commoner.
     
    Little did they know, she already had.
