Personality



Personality:

Lily started out as a sweet girl. She would giggle when her father tickled her and loved to give out hugs. She had never bonded a male before, but she looked forward to one day starting her own court, perhaps ruling a small village or district. She wanted to make her parents proud, show them that their daughter could go from raising horses to ruling. That desire drove her forward, made her study hard at her lessons and dedicate herself to perfecting the Queen’s Gift. Balancing her studies and the tasks to keep the horse farm running, especially as her parents grew sicker, built a strong work ethic. She not only enjoyed using her gift to feed the land, but also the ache of her muscles after a hard days labor. There was something rewarding about both.

But then she was sold to Pullo, a Hayllian slaver.

The male took a perverse joy in seeing if he could strip away the basic instincts of a Queen. It became a game to him, pairing every natural inclination—the Queen’s bond, giving to the land, the Queen’s Touch—with pain. Slowly but surely, Lilyan began to crumble. Her Master twisted her natural inclinations until she began to hate every sense, every feeling that reminded her of her Caste. She stopped eating. She stopped sleeping. The cruel game broke her—not physically—but mentally, her chalice fracturing at denying such fundamental parts of herself.

So when Pullo sold her, bored, she was an entirely different person. Skittish. Insecure. Harming herself. Just one step away from losing herself completely.

Likes:
  • 1 Having someone else responsible for her. - Lilyan has been broken and molded into the perfect slave. She missed the formative years where she would have taken control of her life and figured out how to take care of herself. Now, she is like a child in an adults body. Unsure what she wants, how to get it, or even how to take care of herself, so she sees someone else doing it as them helping her.
  • 2 Cooking and cleaning - Lilyan wishes she was a hearth witch. She loves the craft. She loves making people smile with the simple things in life. And above all else, she loves filling people's belly's with delightful food.
  • 3 Singing - Lilyan has a beautiful voice, one passed down from her mother. The two would sing together every night before bed. It is one of her favorite memories from when she was a child.
Dislikes:
  • 1 Leading - The idea frightens her. She doesn't even know how to take care of herself, so trying to take care of others is terrifying. Gone are the days that she hoped to form a court. Now there is just the hope that she might one day be able to take care of herself.
  • 2 Her Queen Caste - Pullo's experiment worked. Lilyan hates her own caste. It has brought her and those that she loved nothing but pain. Every time she uses her gifts it ends in humiliation and terror. She wants to never again use hr craft.
  • 3 Anything that reminds her of a cage - When she was first captured by the raiders, Lilyan was put in a cage with a few other unlucky souls. The memory imprinted on her mind and has made the Queen afraid of small spaces and anything else that makes her feel trapped.
Fears:
  • 1 Her males - The last two males she bonded ended up hurt and dead. Even her very touch caused them pain. Their screams still haunt her to this day. She is terrified she will bond another male, bringing him the same misery that she did her two previous ones.
  • 2 Other Queens - Lilyan hates her own caste and seeing it in others outright terrifies her. Especially as they usually expect her to use her Craft, talk about it, or have their males hovering around them. Every time she looks at another Queen she just sees everything that she has lost, all that pain.
  • 3 Taking charge of her life - Lilyan is terrified of being set free. She is so broken and so dependent on whoever owns her that she wouldn't know what to do. And when she is overwhelmed, she usually ends up harming herself.
Craft Strengths:
  • 1 Whimsy Craft - Lily became very good at small bits of Craft that would put a slim smile on her face or those around her. She can form small illusions or color fire to make it appear rainbow. She likes to expand the craft creatively, especially when she knows someone else is sad.
  • 2 Hearth Craft - Lilyan wishes she was a hearth witch. She can press clothes, preserve food, and cook excellently. She has even begun to experiment with putting small bits of Craft in food, timing a dessert so the chocolate center melts when a fork touches it, releasing the white filing inside.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 Queens Gift - She might have been skilled at this one time in her life, but no more. Lilyan has repressed the Craft so much that even when she is forced to give herself to the land, it is not as effective as most Queen's offering. It still works, but the land is sensitive. It responds to the emotions of a Queen and Lily is never happy when she gives to the land.
  • 2 Queens Touch - After her male died, Lilyan has never used the Craft ever again. It was as if when he died something within her did as well and she never again wants to curse another male with the bond that her touch only strengthens. Without practice, the touch atrophied, weaker and less effective even on males she is not bonded too.

History:

Lilyan was born on a Raejian horse farm. She was an only child. If her parents could have afforded to dote on her they would have. They still made due though, ensuring their daughter had lessons that brought out the best of her Craft. They even arranged, when she was of age, for her to become a Ward of a district court near where they lived. Until then though, they needed her to help them tend the horses.

Life was happy for the young Queen until she was about sixteen. Her parents, both of them, became very ill. At first, Lilyan thought it might just be the flu and they tried to wait it out, but the sickness made her parents grow weaker and weaker. Finally, Lily would wait no longer. Against her parents’ wishes, she mounted a horse and road for the nearest city, a few hours ride away. She planned to get them a Healer, so they could get to the bottom of this.

But about half way to the city, the Queen was surrounded by a group of raiders. She didn’t know any offensive craft, but she struck out her Yellow at the males, attempting to get away. One of them blasted her with his Summer Sky, overestimating the amount he would need to knock the young Queen out in her saddle. Instead, she flew to the ground and her face hit a sharp rock, leaving a scar on her cheek that she still has to this day.

The raiders took her out of Raej and put her up for auction in Hayll. Lilyan was sold to a Hayllian woman who intended to use her to increase the crop yields of her gardens. It had hardly been two years of that work before Lucius Pullo came into the picture. The Hayllian witch that Lily belonged too had lost a bet with the slaver and the Queen traded hands like one would trade clothing.

The next six years of her life were pure hell. Pullo used Lilyan as an experiment, like a lab animal, seeing how far instincts could be repressed. If a Queen could ever be taught to not be one. To her Master’s joy and Lilyan’s dismay, the Queen bonded her first males in his service. One Warlord and one Prince, each beautiful and perfect, and filled with Mother Night’s promise. Pullo would make the young Queen use her gift on the males, followed by instances of excruciating pain, training the both of them that the Queen’s Touch was associated with pain. He did this with other aspects of her Caste. Giving power to the land. Her natural inclination to lead. He slowly, over the course of years, associated the fundamental instincts of her very being with pain and horror.

And then, one night, when one of her males came to her and Lilyan, just for a moment, let a flicker of her Craft cross between their bond, sending comfort to both of them, he killed her male.

The Queen was devastated and something inside her chalice fractured. She held her Craft inside her and built a brick wall against the natural gifts her caste allowed. She took to cleaning. Following Pullo’s every order. In short, she became boring to the man. He sold her a year later.

Lilyan was passed on to two Master’s after that, mostly through privet auction, each discarding her when they realized she was broken. Her Queen’s gift failing. Her natural presence as a Queen, someone who should calm other males, minimal at best. She baffled most of the people who bought her and they would quickly return the Queen, just glad they got their money back.

That is where she finds herself now. Sold again, passed to another set of hands with a shined ring atop it.

Show Us What You've Got

Character in Play:

Lilyan Vada sat on a chair, her back straight and her blue eyes wide. She was not scared…exactly. This process had happened so many times now that it had become familiar, but there was always the uncertainty. Always. Gnawing at her like a hungry dog. The Queen swept her gaze over the two people gathered, her eyes falling into a vacant stare as she was nudged to stand by the nicely dressed handler her Master employed. He was a nice one. Calm. His hands warm like the sun. That is how Lily remembered Raej from her childhood. Warm. Bright. Colors dancing in the air like the fabric that had wrapped around her as a girl.

Even now, her Master and his servant were wrapped in the most delightful colors. Sparkling jewelry. Head scarves. The delightful smell of turmeric and saffron wove through the air like coffee did in Hayll.

The Queen paused and shuddered, her attention seeping back into reality.

Her Master had walked out of the room to start negotiations, his calm demeanor making Lilyan shift. The room was quiet without him, the location her Master had told the new buying to visit on the outskirts of the city. Still though, something began to ring in the Queen's ears. She covered them, her small hands trying to curl into her head. Everything was so loud all of the sudden. Like a band slamming together their instruments in her head.

Bam. Bam. Bam.

The music discordant as she looked around wildly, scared, her eyes finally stopping as the door opened and her Master entered with a stranger. A male. His skin tanned, but glowing. Healthy. Rich. Lilyan felt her heart break in that moment and she let out a scream, causing her Master to look back in surprise.

Lilyan felt a piece of her heart rip from her chest and drift into the male’s outstretched hand, beating, broken, bloodied. She tried to get away, tried to run, but the nice handler caught her, held her in place with Craft. The Queen struggled the entire time, reaching for the Jewels that weren't there until the handler worried she might hurt herself. Might push to far. Her Master allowed the man to escort her away, frustrated with the display as he tried to extort a higher price from the stranger.

The Queen sunk into the back room, covered in fine velvet furniture, and cried.
