Serafina Amaranthe is the daughter of Semini and Lokr Revlis and sister to Siolene and Morholt. Just shy of her first birthday, Sera ran from home with a stranger in tow. Like Amaranthes of the past, she has left a wake of rumors and scandal with her abrupt departure.

After adventuring through the wilds of Nova Scotia, Serafina has finally settled down in New Caledonia.


1.  Personality

1.1  Overview

Summary

Empathetic and compassionate, Serafina is guided by her heart more than good sense. She and her siblings were ostracized growing up in Onuba, and this formative experience is what led her to develop a protective positivity rather than cynicism. She doesn't want anyone to suffer like she has suffered. Eager to please and eager for love and acceptance, she doesn't always make the smartest decisions, but she tries her hardest to look for and appeal to everyone's best nature. Serafina is the type of person who is first to notice if someone is left out, and she will make a concerted effort to include everyone. It will distress her if someone lags behind or if someone is alone (even if they've chosen to be alone).

Inheriting her parents' offbeat sense of humor, Serafina is kind of a huge dork. Given that her priority is helping others, she is shameless and confident in most situations. She doesn't seem to care much if people write her off, as long as they aren't afraid of her.

At her worst, Serafina has little instinct for self-preservation, forcing others into a position of protecting her from herself or the situations she puts herself in. She can be stubborn, insistent, and difficult to reason with once she's made up her mind. She also has a hard time understanding people's boundaries, and needs to be firmly reminded over and over again.

Traits

  • Demeanor: Warm, friendly, upbeat, flirtatious
  • Speech: Feminine with a Spanish accent. She laughs often and easily.
  • Scent: Flowers
  • Outlook: Generally optimistic, if not slightly fatalistic
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
Strives to bring the greatest benefit to the most people which causes the least harm
Will not want to lie or cheat anyone, avoids killing whenever possible
Group and order oriented, will keep their word
Upholds the rights of the weak and oppressed members of society

1.2  Detail

Interests

  • Likes: you, hugs, plants, books, gardens, flowers, soft grass, secret places, jokes, conversation, weed
  • Dislikes: exclusion, cruelty, harm, fighting, conflict, people conferring behind closed doors

Biases

Open-minded and inclusive to almost everything, Serafina's only real bias is against religious or spiritual individuals. She is less likely to trust them, although she will seek to change their minds rather than avoid confrontation.

Motivations and Fears

Serafina is motivated strongly by the desire to belong. She wants to carry her own weight and the weight of others—to a practical extent.

Her anxieties tend to circulate around ostracization and being alone. She can't stand the idea of someone being left out, herself included.

Sexuality

Serafina is bisexual/pansexual.

Substances

Although she does not smoke tobacco, Serafina is a big fan of both the medicinal and fun effects of cannabis. She also enjoys drinking, and is a happy, albeit a little too cozy, drunk.

Spirituality

A negative experience with the rigidity of faith led Serafina to develop an anti-religious perspective. She believes that doctrine is dangerous and that it hurts more than helps others. If she could wish away one thing, it would be religion.

Her own notion of life, death, and the afterlife is an odd organic nihilism — she believes that the spirit is part of the body, and when the body dies, everything simply ends and returns to the earth.

Auxiliary Skills and Hobbies

  • Language and Literacy
Serafina was raised in Onuba, and thus has a moderate Spanish accent. She is fluent in Common (English), Spanish, and Portuguese, and can read and write in these languages.
  • Dancing
Like any Onuban native, she loves to dance! She has great rhythm. Her singing, on the other hand...
  • Tailoring
Serafina was taught to sew, stitch, and embroider when she first shifted, as is tradition for Amaranthe children (in order to help them get used to their hands quickly). Knowing only the basics, she nevertheless keeps several bone hooks and pins in her belt bag, and scavenges threads wherever she can find them.

2.1  Basics

Reference

Overview

Although relatively short for luperci standards (standing at 5'9" in her optime form), Serafina inherited the slender frame and hues of her father. Her fur pattern is reminiscent of an autumnal forest dappled in sunlight, and her eyes are a soft shade in the transition between green and blue. Her light brown hair falls just between her shoulder blades, although it is often loosely braided and woven with flowers, if the season allows.

She tends to dress for warm weather, leaving her shoulders and neck uncovered as her double-coat keeps her well insulated during the colder months. It's clear that Serafina also has a fondness for the color red, adorning herself with ties and ribbons of these hues, which she also makes use of in a variety of ways. Her outfit has been gradually reworked into one suitable for travel in the wilderness, although she holds on to the tatters of her old Onuban clothes for both sentimental and practical reasons. One never knows when they might need a makeshift sling!

Serafina does not have a commanding presence at all — you could easily overlook her, like a rabbit in the grass. She has an effervescent air that carries her through good and bad situations alike; even while "angry", she is non-threatening.

3.2  Relationships

Family Relationships

  • Serafina had a largely happy upbringing with her family. Exuberant and extroverted by nature, she was close to both of her parents and spent a great deal of time with her grandmother in the estate gardens. She would dote on Morholt if he'd let her. Although she and Siolene had been thick as thieves at the outset, their interests took them on different paths. She wishes that Lene had more time for her (because Sera is a big needy baby).
  • After a fateful meeting with her legendary brother Lotan and his mentor Pazuzu, Serafina was escorted by them to La Estrella Roja where she then met Calrian and Malik. Although her once idolized older brothers have been grounded in reality, she still thinks the world of them.
  • While at La Roja, Serafina spent some time getting to know her infamous older sister, Tiamat. Their relationship is awkward and uneasy, but well-meaning.

New Caledonia Relationships

Tercero Robles
Serafina thinks Tercero is noble, long-winded, and a zealot for caution. Although they struggle to work as a team (having two very opposite instincts in tricky situations), their shared traumatic experiences have made them close friends. After a brief separation and then fortuitous reunion, Serafina no longer minds their differences. She is committed to seeing him do well.
