Corrine Pauva is a is a member of Salsola presently ranked as a Serf. She serves the pack as a caretaker -- preparing meals, tending to the wounded, and pupsitting.

Born part of an overseas French community, Corrine and her siblings were abandoned at a young age, then found and cared for by an aging couple who had never had kids of their own. When their foster parents passed of natural causes, the siblings split, with Corrine heading west towards the sea. She was captured by a rogue band of pirates, and was made to perform for them sexually under threat of death. She did so with little to no physical coercion, resulting in very few scars from her stint with them. Sold to a crewship as a cleaner, the captain discovered her talent for cooking and befriended her after a while, giving her a more important role than mere property; though her living situation improved, she was not particularly well-off.

Unfortunately, Corrine, traveling from Europe and serving as personal cook to the captain, was shipwrecked near the shores of Salsola. A few days later, she stumbled upon Dullahan Eternity and his sister, Osrath, before being lured into slavery by their mother, then-Boss Salvia.

After six long years in servitude, Corrine was granted her "freedom" by Boss Elphaba Revlis as a wedding favor to Grievous Eternity.

Interests

  • Likes: Cooking, food, teaching, bird-watching, warm weather, being outdoors
  • Dislikes: Loud men, drunkards, being cold, strong alcohol

Traits

  • Outlook: Resigned to her fate, Corrine has realistic expectations about the world.
  • Sociability: More introverted than extroverted.
  • Expression: Kind, mild
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Motivations: Comfort, finding her own identity, being useful
  • Fears: Being alone, abandonment, cruelty, drowning.

Biases

  • Outsiders: Having spent more of her life inside of Salsola than out, Corrine has adopted many of the Thistle Kingdom's tenets. Among them, a general distrust for those that live outside of the pack.
  • Non-Luperci: A sad, backwards type of person that doesn't realize what they're missing out on.

Sexuality

Corrine was forced into sexual service by men for most of her young life, and has very troubled views on sexuality.

Substances

Having been drugged and kept complacent with alcohol for parts of her early life, Corrine is less inclined to heavy drinks or drugs. She has been exposed to many things throughout the course of her life and would be able to recognize certain smells, behaviors, or other signs of intoxication in others.

Corrine drinks wine and brandy when available, especially with meals. She would be inclined to smoke tobacco.

Spirituality

Destiny is a thing in which Corrine very much believes – she feels as if she was fated to her life of servitude, though her recent release has convinced her she was correct.

Her many years in Salsola have exposed her to the beliefs of the pack and its witches, known as the Coven. Corrine keeps a small altar in her house, believes in sacrifice, and defers to those with spiritual power.
