Lace Valentine (LAY- ss VAH- len -tyne) is the daughter of Velveteen Silevue and Dirge Valentine, born 3 December 2015 in the French-speaking sub-territories of the Toronto region in Canada alongside her three siblings: Cleome Valentine, Dahlia Valentine, and Toile Silevue.

Unlike her name might suggest, this young woman is anything but dainty; Her average height and soft, creamy fur hide the lean musculature of a skilled fighter and the quick wit of an unflappable field medic. Though her genetics lend her a femininity she cannot part with, Lace cares little for her physical appearance, keeping her hair cropped short and pulled back out of her sharp cerulean eyes. To destroy whatever might be left of a demure ladylike demeanor, Lace proudly bears the deep scars that run across the juncture of her neck and shoulder.

Born into the powerful Silevue family, Lace grew up in Ame Rouge with her parents, siblings and extended family. In a culture rife with gang wars and superstition, voluptuous arcane women and tough, masochistic men the girl was an outcast; Solitary and short-tempered, preferring to end conversations with her teeth. Upon coming of age, Cleome and Lace left an increasingly crowded Ame Rouge to follow in the footsteps of their elder siblings - Hyacinth Silevue, Brocade Valentine, Calla Valentine, and Weaver Valentine - hoping to discover their path in life.

Naturally, this has lead to a number of difficulties...

Lace and her brother now reside in Salsola where she is an Associate.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

In stark contrast to her abrasive and irritable personality, Lace is actually quite easy on the eyes. Thanks to her wonderful Silevue genes, no amount of heavy training can give her a bulky musculature. Instead, she retains a slim, pleasingly curvy figure that is only accentuated by her soft, plush coat of fur. While her curves may not be quite so eye-catching as a certain older sister, she was gifted with a trim waist that flares out to an ample bossom and wide, feminine hips giving her a noticeable hourglass figure.

Her coat, thick and healthy, is a series of gleaming whites and golds only ever delving into darkness across her face and rump. The dark neutral brown mask covers her muzzle and forehead giving way only to white on her lips and chin and a smattering of champagne freckles over her gold cheekbones. Her dark brown hair typically lies straight, cropped as short as Lace is able to and still be able to pull it back out of her eyes though some inevitably always falls across her forehead and falls into her vivid cerulean eyes.

Lace has never felt the need to bother adorn herself in fanciful clothings and accessories like most of her siblings seem to. When not wearing leather armor, ready for battle, the Valentine woman tends to wear very simplistic coverings, though she prefers to wear protective leather fingerless gloves when she knows she'll be sparring.

Lace has two piercings (a ring and stud in her left ear) and a set of scars across her neck that she proudly wears.

2.  Personality

TL;DR: A basic summary in paragraphs or bullet points.

2.1  Traits

Expression

      • "Is not concerned with those less fortunate."
    • Evil
      • "Believes those who seek to rule others are, by nature, corrupt."
      • "Finds most people to be narrow-minded and inflexible."
      • "Is not trusted by the community and may have enemies."
  • Tropes:

Motivations

  • Family
  • Respect
  • Rank

Fears

  • Exile
  • Disappointment
  • Betrayal

Interests

  • Likes: Sparring; getting her hands dirty; teas; winning; being left alone
  • Dislikes: Standing still; restrictions; brown-nosing, posturing, backstabbing, liars, politics, etc; sailing; useless pets; disrespect; small talk; overly religious people; peer pressure; most things, really

Biases

  • Salsola: Her current home, full of her siblings. She remains faithful to it for them, but greatly distrusts the secret inner workings that she senses going on.
  • Species: Canines are superior, anything else is prey unless it's useful.
  • Non-Luperci: She is confused by their insistence on remaining inferior, though she respects that it is a harder, if stupider, way of life. Those who are immune are pitiable at best.
  • Gender: Lace believes that gender holds no sway over the strength of an individual, but tends to favor more masculine traits. Femininity is undesirable to her, but she will personally beat anyone who considers it weaker.
  • Sexuality: Has no biases for or against various sexualities. It's none of her business. Bigotry will get you beaten.

Sexuality

  • 2 on the Kinsey scale: "Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual"
    • Lace finds herself primarily physically attracted and exclusively romantically attracted to men, but will occasionally dabble in a fling with a woman.
  • She cares very little for appearances or personalities when it comes to attraction. What it really boils down to is: "Do they impress me?" If the answer is no, then she has no interest in them whatsoever. Only someone who bests her in combat or otherwise proves themselves 'worthy' in her eyes will ever be persued.

Spirituality

  • Lace has very little interest in anything spiritual. She has a healthy respect for death, but does not fear the afterlife (if there is one) and that's all she needs.
    • Witchcraft, while not entirely foreign to her, is strange and unfathomable to Lace. Aware of its potential, it remains vaguely terrifying and suspicious, though she might not necessarily disagree with it.

Substances

  • Booze: Drinks socially, rarely enough to truly get her drunk. She gets in way too many fights while sober, can you imagine if she were drunk?!
  • Drugs: Has never tried them, likely wouldn't try unless she was around someone she truly trusted (so no one).

2.2  Skills

Combat

  • Education and Learning: Primarily learned from actually getting into physical fights more than anything, she did convince a motley group of people to teach her various aspects she felt necessary.
  • Hand-to-Hand (Master): This is Lace's primary fighting technique. She started out just a brawler, but know she throws in many different pieces of martial arts she's learned over the years. One of her favorite forms of this is fighting primarily with her legs or feet; usually she just tries to knock people out with her punches.
  • Knives (Journeyman): Whether it be using them as projectile weapons or keeping them in her hands, Lace is skilled in their use.
  • Swordfighting (Dabbler): Knows her way around a sword, but just barely. She's watched many sword fights and picked one up on occasion, but she tends to use it the same way she would a club.
  • Archery (Apprentice): Lace would like to better this skill, she's only just recently started learning.
  • Blunt Weaponry (Dabbler): A few times in the heat of the fight, Lace has found herself on the ropes and has picked up the nearest stick to aid her. That's the extent of it.
  • Feral (Dabbler): She's rarely in feral so rarely uses.
  • Lace really only knows two types of combat well, hand-to-hand and knives. The rest, she's very poor at.
  • Lace is an impulsive, reckless fighter.

Animal Husbandry

  • Education and Learning: Lace has always helped her family take care of their horses and has ridden many.
  • Horseback Riding (Journeyman): Lace loves horseback riding and has done so since she shifted the first time. She's a very skilled horsewoman and very confident in her abilities.
  • Horse Grooming/Care (Journeyman): Goes hand in hand with the above.
  • Lace doesn't know how to interact with any other kind of livestock and pets are just weird to her.
  • She doesn't know how to fight from horseback, but would love to one day learn how.

Healing

  • Education and Learning: After getting herself into so many fights, she had to learn how to fix herself up too.
  • Combat Medic (Journeyman): Lace can set bones, patch up wounds, make poultices for swelling and infections, and even stitch up wounds.
  • Skill (Master): describe skill
  • Lace doesn't know how to treat illnesses or conditions. Her expertise lies solely in those injuries found on the battlefield.

Etiquette and Education

  • Education and Learning: As a woman of the Valentine family, she was expected to know many things. Don't expect to ever see these put into practice though.
  • Manners (Journeyman): Never expect to see this unless you are literally her boss.
  • Poise/Grace (Journeyman): Taught from a young age and then promptly thrown out the window as soon as she could. Lace knows how to hold herself in polite society, knows how to dance, knows how to sit and look pretty, and she hates every minute of it. She actively fought to unlearn this 'skill' and now what grace she has is one borne of athleticism rather than education.
  • Diplomacy (Apprentice): Conflict deescalation, trade, the standard dos and don'ts of interacting with those of a higher rank and the like. She's never been very good at this, but she knows how to interact with people and will do so if it's required of the situation. Just don't expect her to enjoy it.
  • Reading (Master): Lace is rather fond of reading and can be found relaxing with a book in her own home. She rarely makes this known.
  • French (Fluent): Born in Ame Rouge, like the rest of her family, she speaks French. Unlike her family, she prefers to hold a conversation wholly in one language or the other.
  • She absolutely hates having to use most of these skills, expect them to be rusty and jarring if she ever does.
