Likes:
  • 1 Climbing Trees:
  • 2 Swimming:
  • 3 Caring for the Land:

    Dislikes:
  • 1 Greedy People:
  • 2 Cheap Clothing:
  • 3 Unmitigated Rudeness:

    Fears:

  • 1 Hayllian Fear Mongering: The Great War happened as did the very long and entangled conflicts before it, all begun by Askavi and its superiority angle. While Calypso was born slightly before the Purge, she was too small a child to have been affected in any lingering way in a physical sense. In an emotional sense, it caused her to have to grow up without her beloved father. She has only a rare few memories of him as he died before her Offering, which was a rushed and grief-filled affair. As a result, the push that some feel to go to war again with Askavi terrifies Calypso, because of all she can think about his her father's very still body with no warmth or life in it when days previous he was playing with her and talking about the future.

  • 2 Rushed Revenge: Revenge is sometimes necessary. At times, one must delve deep to attend to a person that has slighted one's honour in one way or another. It does not always need to equate to an end of life. However, rushed revenge can have a price that is much too high. Calypso lost a Steward who was contracted to her for one of the villages she ruled because he was intent upon restoring his perceived honour, and rather than being careful and considering other paths, the man attacked the wrong woman though truly any woman is the wrong one in truth, who was among a family stronger than that of his own.

    It was through her Aunt Lana's very quick thinking and excellent, well-known name that she was not taken from her first seat in the scandal the Warlord caused. Since then, Calypso has been careful in the males she'll allow as part of her Court. It is better to have loyal, good men that number but a small few rather than many with a deep rot that festers in one's Court regardless of the size. Sometimes, however, with there being a rich variety of males capable and qualified for Court service but with petty ideals hidden behind a pleasant facade - Calypso always wonders and stresses to the point of anxiety eating away at her sleeping hours.

  • 3 Mishandled Slave Bonds: There are times, given how slavery works in Hayll with the use of Protocol and respect as just because someone owns an entire person's work does not mean it is right to mistreat them, that a Queen can and does Bond a slave. There was a time once that Calypso herself Bonded one that had offered himself to her family due to the massive gambling debts they had accrued, a lesser member of one of the hundred. Despite being a Slave at least for her, she never once raised her hand to Lord Achilles, though there had been the occasional employee that believed in acceptable to strike her slave.

    The feeling of their pain reverberating back through the Bond was among the most abysmal emotions the young Queen has ever experienced. As such, she fears for those that have had such pain, and Lord Achilles eventually returned to his family after a mere three years of service without the slightest complaint of working for her - by her own hand. There are times, however, that Calypso feels residual pain from his loss as the young man later died coming across the wrong sorts of people - and wonders all the time if she could have done more to change the trajectory of his life. So she deeply fears the way Hayll is going, especially since the incident with the Colosseum. While it is right and good for anyone to want to be free, she frets over the right way to deal with a slave bond despite seldom being willing to own an entire person with thoughts, feelings, aspirations of love, spiritual needs, due to the grave responsibility that is tied within it, especially if they are a Bonded.

    Craft Strengths:
  • 1 Queen's Touch:
  • 2 Land Delving Gift:

    Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 Telekenesis:
  • 2 Witchflame:
