Appearance

Play By: Ingrid Michaelson
Distinguishing Features: Her long red-brown hair can be quite distinctive - particularly in the summer where it soaks up the sun and is clearly more red than brown. Similarly, her eyes are a soft hazel the fluctuate between brown and green. Her smile though is the absolute most notable aspect of her appearance - in that it's almost always present, and always bright and cheerful. She also wears glasses!

Personality



Personality:

Bright, bubbly, silly and a little weird - Nina is a bundle of energy wherever she goes. There's virtually always a smile on her face and she doesn't hesitate to try and spread the joy to others, especially if there's someone who seems down for some reason. She is typically a very positive and optimistic person who can't always see or understand why other people take the opposite approach - which can sometimes make her seem naive.

When Nina was fourteen, she went though an awkward dorky stage of bad puns and fantasy novels that she never quite grew out of. She loves to read and follows her favorite authors like others will follow celebrity Queens or actors - even if the authors she likes aren't always the most mainstream. The kinds of stories she loves the most are adventures with daring heroes and epic quests, living extraordinary lives. Especially if they have a secret identity as a normal person! Then anyone, anywhere, could actually be a hero in disguise. It was all just so exciting!

She tends to forget that she had a very select kind of humor and point of reference of things, and that not everyone has read the entire Nevermoor series cover-to-cover, so will often make obscure references like everyone should know what she's talking about or make quick jokes only she will laugh at. When she realizes this, she'll often blush and apologize, but it doesn't really get her down much. She had friends, and she's confident enough in herself that she doesn't feel the need to change anything about herself or her likes and interests just so that she will fit in with other people. For the most part, she likes herself, and she isn't apologetic about it. The only exception is if the topic of careers or life goals comes up. When that happens she just starts stammering and making up half-baked explanations of saving money or enjoying her twenties.

It really isn't surprising that Nina can sometimes be a little bit spacey. She isn't forgetful, but she does tend to get random thoughts and then follow those tangents - making her very easily distractible. This is a handy trait in the sense that she never really stays upset with anyone or about anything for very long and is very easy to cheer up. However, it can also make her seem very flighty at times.

At her core, though, Nina is a person who wants others to be happy. She is compassionate and caring, and though she doesn't always succeed she will always try to lift someone's spirits and make their day. It makes her feel good to see other people smile, particularly knowing that she in some part had something to do with it. It makes her incredibly uncomfortable to see someone in deep distress and be able to do nothing about it - and conflict makes her skin crawl. She cannot go to bed angry and will insist on talking out any conflict or situation with someone before they part ways because she hates leaving things bad between friends. Otherwise, she very likely will not be able to sleep that night, or at least won't sleep well.

Likes:
  • 1 - Puns. There's just something incredibly satisfying about a quick and simple pun. They often slip out in regular conversation and she is quick to giggle at each one, whether they're inadvertent or not.
  • 2 - Her ukulele. It's little, it's cute, it makes such a happy sound, and she can pluck out the chords to just about any song on it. Including random little tunes that she makes up while working or walking or shopping or just existing. "I'm counting stock before open" is one of her smash hits that gets stuck in her head on a regular basis.
  • 3 - Bottle tossing. Something she started playing around with when she was a teenager and discovered she had a bit of a talent for. She'd cultivated the skill and can perform a number of cool tricks - and doesn't hesitate to do so since they seem to bring a smile to the faces of the people at the bar (despite it sometimes being completely out of atmosphere of the little pub she works at).
Dislikes:
  • 1 - Living alone. Nina grew up as the middle triplet - she's never been alone in anything! It was her, Nick, and Ned as the Terrific Trio since forever! They learned how to walk on the same day, none of them wanting to be left behind. Being without them is difficult, especially in those few hours every day that she finds herself in her quaint little apartment all by herself and it's just far too quiet. And far too lonely.
  • 2 - Violence. She is just not okay with violence, at all. Why can't we all just have a beer and talk it out!? Make love not war! Whenever tensions start escalating she'll be the first one to slip in with a quip and a smile to try and calm things down and redirect the situation before it begins to bubble over. She both sees this as something anyone would do so someone doesn't get hurt, and at her job a part of her duty in serving her customers. She's the bartender! She's practically in charge of putting smiles on your faces!
  • 3 - Allergies. Literally the bane of her existence. Spring is wonderful and lovely and beautiful, and a particularly pollen-y day will make her eyes swell up so bad she can't see and sneezing so much she could be the whole percussion section in an orchestra! Pollen is her biggest nemesis, but she is also allergic to dust and most cats.
Fears:
  • 1 - Disappointing her parents. Mother Night does she love her family. They're awesome, and so ridiculously supportive - and Nina is afraid that she's wasting that support somehow by not really having a... direction she wants her life to go in. Both her brothers seem to know exactly what they want to do with their lives, but Nina is still searching. She knows that her mother worries about her and she really can't stand the thought that she'll end up not achieving anything or making her family proud. She knows they'll never love her any less, but if anything that makes it even worse - because they're so worthy of everything she has to give and more and she's just... worried that maybe she doesn't have enough to give.
  • 2 - Being mugged. Living by yourself in the middle of a big city can be absolutely terrifying sometimes - and while Nina keeps a positive attitude, there is a certain apprehension she carries whenever she's on her way home from work. It's dark, and late, and you never know who might be lurking around the corner and what kind of night they've had.
  • 3 - Losing her brothers. Losing them physically (in the whole 'dead' sense) is only a distant sort of fear. What is more present is the fear that she'll lose touch with them. They're moving forward, on with their lives and she feels left behind. She's afraid they'll start seeing each other less and less, then only on holidays, then maybe even less as they go on with their lives without her.
Craft Strengths:
  • 1 - Warming/Cooling Spells. She can hit a precise temperature and hit it consistently over and over again. This comes in handy not just for keeping food warm and keeping drinks cold (but not too cold) - but also in keeping the air around the bar from overheating when it gets busy.
  • 2 - Tidy-up Spells. A trick she picked up from her mother, these little spells help free dirt from fabrics and other surfaces are a particular forte of hers, and she uses them liberally to keep both her clothing and the bar clean. Her tiny apartment is also quite spotless thanks to her little spells.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 - Fine telekinetic Craft. By the way she twirls them bottles you would never know, but she actually can't move anything with Craft with any real finesse. Her ability with moving objects is limited to floating larger boxes a few inches off the ground to make them easier to push around while doing inventory or unloading deliveries.
  • 2 - Illusions/Whimsy Craft. Nina is very imaginative, but she's never been able to get what's in her mind to translate out through craft. She tries, now and again, but any illusion she attempts to conjure is weak and flimsy, and can't seem to hold a concrete shape or image.

History:

Lidia Brewery never expected to fall pregnant with triplets. Talk about stressful! The pregnancy was long (even though it ended up being cut short by about a month) and hard, but the babies (while very small) were all healthy screamers and she herself made it through alright. In true fashion of those who can't resist coordination, they named their triplets Nick, Nina, and Ned - and they were a fun and troublesome little trio to be certain. But the Brewery household was never short of squealing laughter.

Nina, smack dab in the middle of the Terrific Trio, was sure that the day would never come where the three of them would be separated - not for any reason. After all, they grew up side by side by side! They learned to walk on the same day, often had many of the same friends, were each others' closest confidants. Even when they weren't getting along, they were always there for each other. Nothing could separate them. Not even Ned coming away from their Birthright Ceremony so much darker than the two older triplets seemed to be a barrier between them. After all, they were family. They were siblings. They were triplets. And they belonged together. They even had a three-man band for a while!

Things started to change, however, as the siblings grew up - as their interested began to diverge, as they started to discover themselves as individuals. They still loved each other dearly, of course, and remained close... but they were also growing apart in their own way.

Nina always felt a little bit behind in the whole forging-ones-own-path adventure. Where her brothers seemed to have really definite interests and ideas of what they wanted to do when they grew up, Nina just.. didn't. Her mind wasn't really on a career or life goal - she just wanted to have fun and maybe fall in love, spend time with her awesome family and just... live. Her parents, supportive and very aware of their triplets, noticed that she seemed to be the only one without a direction (and was alone more and more while her brothers were off pursuing training and experience in their own) and brought her in to work in the brewery. She learned how to make and bottle all of their family's beers, ciders, and ales - and while she enjoyed it... it just wasn't... a fit.

What was missing was people.

At sixteen, she started working as a waitress for one of the bars that her family supplied to and quickly found herself behind the bar pouring and mixing drinks. It was fun, talking to all the people, running around and taking orders, the banter and the liveliness of it all.

The idea had been to work at the bar, explore her options, and then by the time she made her Offering... know what she was going to do. Her brothers were doing things, her parents owned their own business - "bartender" just didn't seem like a life-long option. But her Offering came and went, and she was still a bartender. A better bartender than she was when she started - but definitely still a bartender. Her parents never said anything to make her think that they were somehow disappointed in her, always so patient and supportive of their pathless child, but Nina still felt... pressure, even if it was pressure she was putting on herself.

In an attempt to push herself out and into her own, she moved out of the family home and started renting a small flat in Goth - working at fun little bar called the Tottering Otter that had recently come into new ownership. Maybe her she'd finally be able to figure out her path.

Show Us What You've Got

Character in Play:

"Breeeeewskiiiiiiii!"

The call was bright, excited, and touched with a playful whine - a familiar cocktail that had Nina almost hopping on top of the bar as she turned toward the voice. A bright grin stretched from ear to ear and she lifted her hand in a wave. There, standing in the doorway, were two remarkably similar men with bright reddish hair and grins that matched her own.

"Ned! Nick! EEEEE!" With a giggle and a shout, she practically thrust the bottles she'd been holding into the customer's lap who'd been unfortunate enough to be sitting directly across from her position. Then she was launching herself over the bar and running full speed through the little crowd of pre-dinner regulars to land in the welcoming embrace of her brothers.

"I didn't know you were coming by! Why didn't you tell me!? How did you know where this place was?! Did mom and dad tell you!? How long will you guys be here!?" A million questions were pouring from her and her heart was full to bursting. It had only been a few days since she'd moved out and started at this new job, and she was still a little (okay, a lot) apprehensive about all the big changes. Neither of her brothers had been able to help her move or had seen the Tottering Otter yet, off doing their own things, and there had been something hollow in her chest these past few days because of it.

But that empty spot was full now, ringing with joy at their presence.

"Well you didn't think we'd just sit by while our little sister went off and started her own grand adventure now, did you."

Nina narrowed her eyes up at the brother who'd spoken. "Ned, I'm older than you."

He hummed and placed a hand on her head then brought it back to measure her against him and the oldest triplet. "I dunno, Nick. What do you think? Seems pretty little to me--oof!"

Nine elbowed him in the stomach and the three of them laughed again. Damn it was good to hear that sound. The three of them laughing together - it was just so much better than just one of them. Just like the three of them singing together could bring out a harmony that none of them could do on their own. It was just... right.
