Semini

By San

Semini was born with her sister Akantha to the Baroness of Onuba, Thalia Amaranthe, and Captain Edgar Lanseer on a cold November night out at sea.

She was raised on the Amaranthe estate and trained in all court affairs and etiquette until she displayed a greater interest and skill in seamanship. She entered an apprenticeship with her father soon after, forgoing her claim as Thalia's firstborn to be the heiress of the Amaranthe family. She then sailed with the Saltwater Storm on trading voyages throughout the Mediterranean, and began to learn navigation via sextant by her father's first mate, Cibran. Driven to prove herself, she excelled in her training and became a respected part of the crew despite her gender and youth.

The Saltwater Storm made its second run to Freetown in the summer of 2014, where disagreements with the crew and her father led Semini to separate from them by stealing her father's dinghy. She wrecked this boat in a storm off the coast of Nova Scotia, and in August she became a member of the pack, Krokar. Due to her determination to prove her worth, she quickly rose to the rank of Magnate of Production. Following her journey to Cour des Miracles, where she spent the summer refurbishing a ship for them, she was promoted to Navigator, which is a position she currently holds.

On January 1st, 2016, Semini bore a daughter and son to Sapien Nikita Volkov: Tiamat and Lotan. Semini's relationship to her daughter became strained following her breakup with Nikita, and ultimately it deteriorated completely upon Tiamat's discovery of Semini's love affair with Lokr Revlis at the end of 2016. Tiamat fled Krokar with her godmother, Laevisa Arena in search of her absent father.

On January 25th, 2017, Semini gave birth to sons Calrian and Malik, fathered by Lokr Revlis.


In the 2016 'Souls Yearbook, Semini was voted "Cutest Couple...that Never Happened" (with Lokr Revlis), and "Should have their own L'Oreal meme"

Passive interaction is fine, but anything more involved, please PM me to discuss!

1.  Personality

1.1  Summary

At her core, Semini is deeply compassionate and desires only the best for everyone around her. Due to a firm belief in the innate goodness of people, Semini will often give others the benefit of the doubt, sometimes to her own detriment (the exception, of course, being where a negative intention is clear, such as violent threats/pursuit). The flip side to her emotional insight, which allows her an intuitive connection to most beings, is that Semini is also very susceptible to it both negatively and positively. This gives the appearance of a certain instability or mercurial behavior that can be upsetting - like the sea breeze, her mood can change in an instant. Her struggle as a person hinges upon the sometimes diametrically opposing head (doing what's right) and heart (doing what she loves).

1.2  Traits

  • Outlook: Semini is considerably optimistic about the world, and has yet to encounter a good justification otherwise.
  • Sociability: Equally extroverted and introverted, leaning more towards extroversion.
  • Demeanor: Friendly, Trusting, Kind, Spirited
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
Acts as conscience directs her with little regard for what others expect of her
Believes in all the virtues of goodness and right, but has little use for laws and regulations
Basically good, but tends to be selfish and maybe a bit greedy
Will not use torture to extract information or for pleasure, but may "rough up" someone to get information.
Will never kill for pleasure, only in self-defense or in the defense of others.
Will never betray a family member, comrade, or friend

1.3  Ideals

Interaction

  • Speech: Semini has a low humming voice that mostly resembles Carla Bruni. Though a native of Spain, she does not carry a distinct Spanish accent due to her time aboard her English father's ship, but she will sometimes speak words out of order or phrase things strangely. Her Spanish accent is very pronounced when she speaks in other languages.
Semini is fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, and English (Common Tongue).
  • Scent: Salt, Rain, Pine, Krokar
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Semini is a restless type of person and won't stay in one place for long. Some part of her will always be moving. She tends to clench her fists when she feels annoyed or angry. Semini always has her long floppy ears tied back.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Semini stands very straight and with her shoulders back. She looks confident and unencumbered.

Biases

Distrustful of Inferni, Anathema
HATES Salsola
  • Non-Luperci: Semini thinks this is a lifestyle choice. Although unusual, she believes the individual has a right to live the way they want, even if it seems living as a non-luperci might be more difficult.
  • Slavery: Semini has good friends and pack mates who were former slaves, and after the Austringer Hostility, Semini has taken a very strong, very firm anti-slavery stance. She thinks something actively needs to be done about the packs in the region that support this practice.
  • Seamen: Semini will inherently trust a person who has lived and worked out at sea, especially if they knew her father.

Motivations

  • Establishing Krokar as the dominant trading pack of the region
  • Creating allies for Krokar, but only those whose culture meets her moral standards
  • Ensuring the safety of those close to her
  • Moving past old inhibitions and failures to become a powerful and good leader

Fears

  • Illness and physical weakness
  • Death/harm of her loved ones
  • Abandonment
  • Betrayal
  • Salvia Eternity

Spirituality & Substances

  • Semini is mostly atheistic due to her upbringing. Her mother reinforced in her that religion was an illusion and a tool that people used to control others. This was directly challenged by the extremely superstitious culture of the sailors with whom she spent her more formative years, making Semini wary of the possibilities of the spiritual. She is skeptical with an inclination to believe.
  • Semini has a low tolerance for alcohol and is definitely more of a social drinker. She has never used drugs before and has no real interest in them, aside from smoking tobacco. She does not regularly smoke and will only do so in specific moments, generally on a whim. Semini does not have an addictive personality, enabling her the strange ability to permanently cease doing anything at any time.

Sexuality

  • Bisexual, leaning towards male more than female.
    • Due to the stigmatization of homosexual relationships in Onuba, Semini isn't as open to her own fluidity. Despite this, her first experiences were with females in brothels no less (which are also banned in Onuba).
  • Semini is not a cautious lover. She is a passionate romantic that craves affection, and she will fully immerse herself in a relationship, person or encounter. As a result, she suffers frequently from betrayal, abandonment, or being "handled" for her wild, intense and chaotic temperament.
    • She can be jealous, spiteful, and cruel if she feels even remotely undervalued.
  • In more recent times she has mellowed out some, especially with motherhood, but there remains an issue between controlling herself and obeying the whims of her heart.

2.  Appearance

2.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Semini is a wolfdog Hybrid. She tends to look more to the dog side of things.
  • Fur: She has short-medium length fur that curls at the longer ends.
    • Optime Hair: Generally curly and with a texture that is very soft and silky.
  • Facial Features: Her face most resembles a wolf, but her nose is somewhat blunter and her lips more pronounced. Her eyes are large and bright. Her most dog-like feature is her folded spaniel ear, which she typically wears tied back.
  • Build and Size: She has a stockier build. Her body is toned but seems softer in places where the fur is longer. Her waist isn't pinched like an hourglass but straight, fortified by strong abdominals, and flanked by thicker hips and a thicker torso. Her bust is relatively pronounced, much to her disliking.
    • Lupus: In lupus, Semini looks the most dog-like. Her fur is long and her legs short, her tail has an excessive amount of hair. Her shape doesn't seem particularly feminine or masculine, and her back is surprisingly thick and straight.
    • Optime: Standing at about 6ft, Semini does not seem terribly tall for her stockier build and shape. Her forearms and calves have thinner hair, and show off the strength of her body.
  • Humanization: Semini is relatively humanized and prefers her Optime form for most tasks. She will sometimes embrace a wilder aspect of herself, but not to the extent of becoming fully feral.

Clothing

  • Hair tie: Tattered black cloth to tie back ears. Always worn.
  • Sea Glass Necklace: Made of sea glass, resin and rope by Semini. Given to Lokr Revlis in 2015.
  • Luck Charm: Rabbit foot, bone skull, and driftwood charm given to Semini from Marlowe de le Poer in 2015. She hangs this from her belt.
  • Compass Necklace: Given to her on her Navigator promotion from Gus and Lucille in 2015. It's not functional but is shiny and beautiful. Semini typically wears this.
  • Leather Sling: Given to her by Iroquois, she typically ties this sling around her wrist or to her belt. It is small and well used.
  • Crystal Hilt Dagger: She was given the crystal hilt by Vera del Iva during the winter, and she later fitted it with a steel blade with help from Aindrea Donovan. The crystal hilt is very refractive and was formerly shaped into either a serpent or a horse, but it has been too worn to really resemble anything. Traded for Mara Savoy's gem.
  • Two Hunting Blades: Stolen from Ciellen Loreath, these knives are mainly used for dressing kills and scaling fish. They have a permanently scratched surface and would probably snap if ever used as a weapon. Semini is more often equipped with these because of their utility.
  • Dagger with an intricately carved caribou antler hilt: Made by Ilse Verhoeven, Semini won this dagger in a bet during Krokar's annual Caribou Races.

4.  Residence and Companions

4.1  Fiskebyn Residence

House #15

  • The exterior is overgrown by large flowering bushes, with portions hacked away to allow sunlight through the windows on both sides of the large wooden door. The windows have wooden louvered window shutters which can be closed during the winter and left open during the warmer seasons. A Navigator's Production flag in the left window like a curtain. The interior consists of a large open space, half of which is dedicated to a platform bed frame covered in animal pelts. The bed is pushed against the back wall beneath another open window. There is a half partition that divides the rest of the room into a kitchen area, where a brick fire place occupies the right-most corner. A row of three cabinets butts up against the right wall and two against the partition, all rebuilt after being destroyed in the meteor of 2016. The roof has been hastily rebuilt as well after collapsing, and now has many holes through which rain sometimes leaks inside.

4.2  NPCs

Caoba Robles (Adoptable)

  • Species: Dog
  • Gender: Female
  • Personality: Caoba is a smart, sassy and wise woman that came all the way from Onuba to seek her own purpose in life. She helped Semini through motherhood for the first time, and the two are very good friends.

5.  Relationships

5.1  Family: Amaranthe, Lanseer

Key Family Relationships

  • Akantha: Akantha is Semini's younger sister. They were close growing up, but their interests led them to divergent pursuits. For a long time, Semini did not trust her sister due to conflicts from their past (mostly a competitive thing, stemming from Semini's perception of Thalia's favoritism toward Akantha) and was outright hostile to her. Her presence in Souls was once a source of anxiety and conflict for Semini, until a number of events led Semini to choose to move on from the past and reconnect with Akantha. They now share a bond stronger than ever, and have determined to rise in power together.
  • Tiamat: Semini cherishes her daughter, but finds her perceptiveness a little daunting. She feels that Tiamat resents her after the breakup, and attempts to mend their relationship are frequently rebuffed by her daughter. Following Tiamat's departure at the end of 2016, Semini is unsure if her daughter will ever forgive her for breaking up their family.
  • Lotan: Semini adores her awkwardly large son. She thinks he has a lot of Nikita in him, but is secretly pleased that he also exhibits a lot of her own traits too. Although she would never play favorites, it is true that Semini doesn't have to work half as hard to connect with her baby boy Lotan as she does with Tiamat.
  • Calrian: Precious baby boy
  • Malik: Precious baby boy

Family Tree

Nieces & Nephews: Odalis, Solomon, Lucian
Cousins: AmarantheCamellia, Viola, Coretta, Eione, Undine, Xanthia, Armando, Felipe, Azalea, Bergamot, Primrose, Marigold
Aunts & Uncles: Eloisa Amaranthe, Matisse Durante, Rosalind Amaranthe, Rainerio Puga, Petunia Amaranthe, Madura Secoya
Grandparents: Jacinto Rosales, Selena Amaranthe, Alaric Lanseer, Riley Meadows

Family Relationships

  • Thalia Amaranthe: Semini's mother is the Baroness of Onuba, and she has always prioritized her position over her family. Semini resents her mother for this. She was determined to be unlike her mother, but in the pursuit of her own ambitions began to gain more insight into Thalia's decisions. As she pieced together a more nuanced picture of reality, she found that her mother isn't entirely culpable for the inadequacies of her childhood. Still, she struggles to let go of her unresolved feelings for fear of forgiveness, both of her mother and of herself.
  • Edgar Lanseer: Semini looked up to her father from a young age. Though he was stern and straightforward, he is mainly responsible for Semini's faith in the good of people and many of her values. His death in 2015 was hard on Semini, and she internalized a lot of grief in addition to the bitterness she already felt about leaving him on such bad terms. The fact they were never resolved continues to be a source of pain for her.

Other Family Relationships

  • Amaranthe: Semini has met most members of her extended family, but is familiar with very few.
  • Odalis: Niece.
  • Solomon: Nephew. Reminds her of Edgar.
  • Lucian: Nephew.
  • Camellia: Cousin

5.2  Key Relationships

Lokr Revlis

  • Lokr Revlis is the Lord Commander of Salsola, but Semini knew him first as a hunter in the woods. He risked his life to save her from a rampaging wild boar, and this act inspired her affection for him as well as her conviction of his goodness, which she believes he may have lost sight of in his responsibilities to the dark kingdom of Salsola. His devotion to Salsola over a future with her, in addition to the threat of Salsolan Boss Salvia Eternity, caused Semini to end things supposedly for good. Following a series of events that forced Semini to no longer deny her feelings for him, she finally went to the cabin at the foot of Mount Oromocto where they had once arranged to meet. A stroke of luck (or as some would say, fate) brought them together there, and after confessing their love for one another, the two began a love affair in the late summer of 2016 [1] [2]. At the end of January, 2017, Semini bore Lokr two healthy sons.

Nikita Volkov

  • Nikita Volkov is the father of Semini's first litter, and was her dedicated lover and partner from summer 2015 - spring 2016. Semini met Nikita on her journey to Cour des Miracles, where they shared conversation and cigarettes by the sea. Their similar pasts, being both of ships, seas and foreign coasts, made for a quick bond and understanding between them. It was discovered in late 2015 that Semini was pregnant, and in January 2016, they had their first litter of children. With Nikita's subsequent disappearance, their relationship suffered enough to leave doubtful feelings in Semini. Sadly, their attempts at rebuilding their relationship end in failure. Following a hard breakup, Nikita returned not to his former pack, Sapient, but to his home in Sobirat'sya.

5.3  Pack Relations

Key Pack Relationships

  • Lucille: Lucille is greatly respected by Semini and thought of like a mentor figure. Always perceptive and practical, Lucille helped her realize she was pregnant for the first time, and the two of them have gone on several excursions together around 'Souls. Although Lucille can be a little scary or temperamental at times, and they don't always see eye to eye on certain matters, Semini has grown to cherish her relationship to the Captain. Semini is extremely loyal to Lucille and has grown to love her immensely. She would do anything for Lucille.
  • August Cormier: August, or Gus as he's known, is equally respected by Semini. Due to her history aboard a vessel comprised entirely of salty men, Semini is very comfortable with the gruff Captain and finds his gruff endearing. Semini believes fully in his virtue as a person, although she is aware he's struggled with his vices in the past. She loves him like family and wants what is best for him.
  • Milos Parhelion: Semini didn't know what to think of Milos and his pal Sorcha when they first met. Over time, she grew to respect and trust Milos immensely, and she would be the first to advocate for his abilities having seen them first hand. She believes his rise to the Quartermaster rank is proof of his capabilities and reliability, and she is content to follow his lead and trust his decisions. He is one of those people for whom she wishes only the best things!
  • Eliza Cormier: Though it can be off-putting, Semini genuinely enjoys Eliza's talkative nature and fiery wit. She is drawn to the Cormier and feels a kinship with her, especially since she's married Milos.

Minor Pack Relationships

Former Pack Relations: Beatrice Tindall, Theon Russo, Vidar
Notable NPC: Hazel, Gavin
  • Walker Dupree: Walker is trouble. Fun trouble.
  • Storm Cormier: Storm was a crush of hers that turned sour due to her own misunderstanding. Semini cares about Storm and values his friendship, but she feels like he might resent her after everything they went through. She is mostly happy that he is safe in Krokar and has a budding, if not slightly unconventional family.
  • Ciara: Semini likes Ciara quite a bit and finds her to be a mature, good-natured and happy presence in Krokar. She's confident in Ciara's defensive abilities after the issues with the Austringer Cartel in 2016 and seeing Ciara fight first hand.
  • Laevisa Arena: Semini was, like many, offput by the unusual witch-woman that her mother left behind, but Laevisa had slowly proven herself to be a good, if not strange source of guidance. With their regular tea-and-talk sessions, Semini has grown to view Laevisa as a friend.
  • Caoba Robles: Caoba was instrumental in helping Semini through motherhood for the first time. She highly values Caoba's friendship and thinks the world of the faithful dog.

5.4  General Relations

Positive

  • Violeta Rose Soul: Semini was cared for by Violeta following a fight with Rafael in the summer of 2015. She trusts Violeta for saving her life and has sworn to fulfill one request of any nature for her. She also just likes Violeta because who doesn't?
  • Silvano Sadira: Silvano is the King of Cour des Miracles. Silvano and Semini landed themselves into a peculiar friendship when mutual friend Mara Savoy left their lives abruptly. During the Casa di Cavalieri Summit in 2016, Semini confronted Silvano about Mara's pregnancy and both came to realize Silvano was the father, leading Semini to understand the romantic (albeit adulterous) circumstances surrounding Mara's departure. Following a visit to Krokar, Silvano became something of a confidante to Semini. Also, they kissed once, but their cooties just didn't match up.
  • Linden Aatte: Semini has admired Linden since she first met him, believing him to be equal parts cool, mysterious, and insightful. His interest in sailing is a source of extreme and unreasonable excitement to her. She values his opinion because she just like, trusts him, ya know? She is vaguely aware of his friendship with Mara, but otherwise has no idea how he is perceived by other Courtiers.

Neutral Relations

  • Rafael Salcedo: Although they fought, Semini and Rafael managed to overcome their differences by saving each other. They reconnected over their family alliance. Semini trusts and respects him, but wouldn't choose to spend time with him.
  • Naenia Ortega: Us Onubans got to stick together, don't we?
  • Marlowe de le Poer: Semini met Marlowe on her journey to CdM in 2015. He warned her about Lokr and Salsola while she in turn told him about her run in with Salvia, and in a random act of pity, he gave her a lucky charm which she still wears. In 2016, Semini learned that Marlowe had some involvement with Pascal's disappearance and the sociopath who did it, about the war ending badly between IF and CDM, and a lot of dirt on Lokr, all of which left Semini feeling conflicted about wanting to help Marlowe. She hasn't seen him since he left KR in early 2016, and doesn't know if she wants to again.
  • Nivosus Moineau: Semini had a fling with Nivosus to get closer to Constantine von Troy, until it was revealed to her that Niv and Con were actually more interested in each other. The embarrassment of the whole affair made her vindictive and spiteful of the two for a while, until she got over her insecurities and grew up a little. After the Red Star in 2016, and discovering Niv and Con's breakup, Semini made amends with Niv, and now the two are something like a dysfunctional brother and sister. She thinks he's a jerk on the outside, tiny squishy baby on the inside.

Negative Relations

  • Salvia Eternity: After a meeting in the Miramichi went sour, Semini determined that Salsola was a terrible place ruled by a terrible Queen. She hates Salvia and sees her as a "weed" that needs to be culled from the garden. The encounter with Salvia directly motivated Semini to amass allies and power in Nova Scotia for Krokar.
  • Izual Massacre: Izual is a frightening nightmare of a creature that Semini encountered in the Miramichi one night. She believes to have successfully drowned him, and keeps this a close secret due to the relative trauma of the whole experience.
  • Basilio Lykoi: Semini hunted down Basilio after discovering he had attacked her packmate, Taseko. She used her entire wild boar family to gang up on him, and eventually chased him back to Inferni with Velazquez. She warned him that if he ever came near Krokar, she'd kill him.

Minor Relations

Former Relations

  • Mara Savoy: Semini met Mara while exploring Gampo Abbey and was immediately persuaded into an easy, affectionate friendship. The two share a convivial repartee and a passion for the sea and its vessels. Semini spent a portion of the summer in 2015 with Mara in CDM and considered her a friend following this venture. In early 2016, Semini discovered through a trader that Mara had left CDM and went to find her on the outskirts of Freetown. There, Semini learned of Mara's pregnancy, and though hurt by Mara's disappearance, came to an understanding with her about their relationship.
  • Constantine von Troy: Once a big crush of Semini's and then a crusher of her girly fantasy, Semini has come to terms with Constantine's everything and accepts him as a friend. She doesn't mind his company but will likely be mean to him every once and a while. She really doesn't understand the relationship between Nivosus and Constantine, but she's trying her best.
  • Ciellen Loreath: He patched her up after her shipwreck in the summer of 2014 and then she, in her vulnerable naivety, persuaded him to sleep with her. She resents him for freaking out and expressing his regret afterwards, which from her perspective was unwarranted and cruel. She gave Ciel the cold shoulder for a long time, and Ciel didn't push it until he made the decision during the 2016 Sapient-Krokar bonfire to call her aside. It ended in an argument, of course.

Language & Literacy

  • Education and Learning: how'd your character learn this?
  • English (Fluent):
  • Spanish (Fluent):
  • Portuguese (Fluent):
  • Low Speech (Level):
  • Reading (Journeyman): She is better at reading Spanish and Portuguese, and is a little slow at English. She doesn't particularly enjoy this activity, though mostly because she learned to read by old historical texts. She has never read a novel and doesn't know that such books exist.
  • Writing (Journeyman): Semini learned to write the same time she learned to read. She used to write letters to her sister regularly when they were separated, and so has had a decent amount of practice. Her handwriting is legible, but Semini tends to write crooked, like the whole block of text curves up towards the right-hand corner of the page.

Carpentry and Woodworking

  • Education and Learning: Onuba, spent approximately a year under the direct tutelage and assistance of Krokar's carpenter Gavin
  • Boat Repair (Journeyman): Semini has experience in repairing boats.
  • Carpentry and Woodwork (Journeyman):
  • Harvesting Material (Journeyman):
  • Resin Varnish Creation (Apprentice):

Seamanship

  • Education and Learning: She worked on her father's ship as a ship-hand since she was around 7 months, and before that was frequently found on the docks.
  • Sailing (Master): Her familiarity with vessels of all types and their operation stems from years of experience. She is extremely comfortable working a boat, and though there is still much to learn, she is a very competent sailor.
  • Knots (Master): Semini spent a good portion of her summer learning how to tie knots and weave nets and do all types of rope-work before she started sailing. She also had a lot of practice while on board, and continued to utilize these skills once she joined Krokar.
  • Swimming (Master): Semini has been swimming her whole life, starting of course with a doggie paddle. Since her shift, she learned a variety of strokes and techniques which were refined with help from local swimmers. She has great skill in free diving, and used to help repair boats in port when she wasn't on her father's ship, since many sailors could not swim themselves and were unable to access these hard to reach areas. The longest she's held her breath underwater was 3 minutes.
  • Navigation (Journeyman): Semini was trained to use both a sextant and celestial navigation. Her training was near complete by the time her teacher, Cibran, perished during the journey to Freetown. She has not practiced since arriving in 'Souls, having no real means to, but she is eager to resume her education.

Combat

  • Education and Learning: how'd your character learn this?
  • Hand to Hand (Journeyman): Semini fights like a sailor. She's been in enough fights to know how to really pack a punch (or an elbow, or a headbutt), and a bunch of sneaky street-smart tricks to add some spice. As far as strengths go, she has her natural athleticism and those upper body muscles going for her, but she doesn't like to be evasive and dodge blows. She prefers to bring opponents into her space and beat them with her smashy fists. She has a formidable grapple and chokehold. This technique usually means she'll get cut and bruised up pretty quick.
  • Weapon - Sling (Journeyman): Although she picked up the weapon in the beginning of 2015, Semini gained a lot of practice with it on her hunts. She is currently training to use it from horseback. The sling is her preferred long-range weapon, but if she doesn't have it, Sem also has a very good pitch with rocks anyway, hence her transition to the sling in the first place.
  • Weapon - Dagger (Apprentice): Having had some weapons instruction, Semini is somewhat comfortable using daggers. With regular practice she might become proficient with it, but is more likely to drop it in favor of close-body combat.
  • Archery (Apprentice): Thalia tried to teach Semini the practice of archery from horseback when she was young. After she was thrown from her horse, she left the whole thing alone and hasn't touched a bow and arrow since.

Physical Strengths and Weaknesses

  • Physical Strength: Semini is naturally athletic and gifted toward certain activities, such as swimming and climbing. Her arms, back and torso hold the most concentrated power from a lifetime of working ships. She has a real nasty bruiser of a punch.
  • Strength: describe skill
  • Sense of Smell: Semini has a reduced sense of smell. She can't identify scents nearly half as well as most canines. She relies heavily on her vision and hearing.
  • Weakness: describe skill
