Lacrimosa Helsi is a young hybrid. She is a member of Salsola, where she was born and raised.

She is the firstborn child of Elphaba Revlis and O'Riley Eternity, the leaders of Salsola, and a littermate to Bryagh Revlis and Polaris Eternity.

From birth, and owing to a number of genetic and developmental abnormalities, Lacrimosa experienced chronic failure to thrive. Her physical maturation is considerably stunted in comparison to that of her littermates. As she has grown, Lacrimosa's frailty and inability to provide for herself in a harsh dog-eat-dog world have become increasingly apparent - it is strikingly evident that she would not be able to survive without the societal support of a large and thriving pack structure, and the patronage of a Royal House there-in.

In spite of her body's weaknesses, Lacrimosa's mind is incredibly sharp. It is with this exceptional tool that she confronts her continued existence, in all its supposedly abhorrent abnormality.

Salsola members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Lacrimosa has largely been kept absent from greater Salsolan society and out of the public eye - she is something of a shut-in, which has left room for myriad rumors as to why...
  • It is no secret that Elphaba greatly favors her chosen heir, Lacrimosa's sister Polaris, over her other children.
  • Those who have seen Lacrimosa in the Ruins may note that she is usually heavily clothed, physically inactive, and always accompanied by her nanny and chaperone Yaga.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


It is immediately evident that Lacrimosa is not a healthy and physically well-developed luperci. Owing to multiple undetermined genetic issues, complications during pregnancy and birth, and recessive mutations due to a historic lineage of inbreeding, Lacrimosa is a warped shadow of her siblings' hearty and hale appearances. She is notably small in stature, with unusual 'doll-like' proportions (a large head in proportion to her undersized body, short and delicate limbs). In all forms, she appears weak and malnourished. She has a heart-shaped, triangular head with a short muzzle and tapered ears, and a distinct overbite which reveals her two upper canine teeth over her lower lip (a common Revlis mutation).

Her colouring is overall ashy and desaturated, a grey Helsi throwback with a dark face and underbelly, and a light silvery topline. In winter this contrast becomes particularly stark, with her nape and spine appearing almost white. In optime form, her hair is a lank and thin silver-white.

Lacrimosa has heterochromia. Her right eye is a dark charcoal, almost black, making it difficult to distinguish the sclera from the pupil. Her left eye, which is also amblyopic, is a vibrant Helsi lavender.


Forms: She is abnormally small given her parentage. Often hidden beneath copious garments for warmth and protection, her body is malnourished and frail in appearance.

  • Unique Scent: Salsola (pine, salty, marshy), her family, fox, lynx.
  • Quirks: TBD

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Observant, Perceptive, Calculating, Philosophical, Mediatory, Weary, Lonely, Feigned, Bitter

  • Motivations: To be worthy of survival, to exert control over others in an invisible way, to find higher meaning
  • Fears: Her body's worsening failure, mental illness, being completely socially outcast, a violent death, a godless world
  • Likes: Reading in the sun, people-watching, the loch, riddles
  • Dislikes: Social gatherings, medicinal smells, boot-lickers, loud storms
  • Alignment: True Neutral
    • Concerned predominantly with their own well-being and that of the group or organization which aids them.
    • Believes in 'lex talionis' forms of justice.
    • Tends to remain nonjudgmental and uncommitted to any moral, legal, or philosophical system beyond the basic tenets of their own society.
    • Will follow the law unless breaking it is in their best interest, and they're reasonably sure that they will not be caught.
    • Indifferent to the concepts of self-discipline and honor, finding them useful only if they can be used to advance their own interests.
  • Non-Luperci: Believes non-luperci to be of lower social and cultural influence, likens them to 'savages'.
  • Outsiders: The blanket term for anyone who does not belong to Salsola. Lacrimosa is frightened of the barbarism her pack's propaganda assigns to all beyond the thistle borders. She has a strong, and not un-founded, belief that Salsola and its influence is the only bastion in which her survival is secure.
  • 3 on the Kinsey Scale: "Equally heterosexual and homosexual."
    • Lacrimosa is unlikely to seek out flings or one night stands - she derives sexual interest only in those with whom she already has a romantic or social connection. For her, physical desire is closely linked to already having a foundation of understanding with another person.
    • Lacrimosa fears romantic/sexual rejection on the basis of her appearance and physical weaknesses. She is unlikely to be the instigator in a romantic situation.
    • Any interest expressed in her by others will likely be met with skepticism. She has a deep understanding that her blood connection to royalty is sought-after by those with great ambition, and believes this to be the motivation for any would-be suitors.
  • Polytheistic
    • Brought up learning about the concepts of spiritualism, ghosts, gods, and their influence in the world. Lacrimosa believes that there are forces beyond those in the mortal world.
    • Both of Lacrimosa's parents have ties to the occult. Her mother is a witch and spiritual leader of Salsola's Coven in the absence of a Crone. Her father is the son of völva, and according to the Hearg Njorth lore is exceptionally magical himself.
    • The nanny who cares for Lacrimosa in her youth has strange connections to the Helsi? religion and practition. Her teachings deepen Lacrimosa's affiliation with this part of her ancestry, and have had a great impact on her spiritual beliefs.
