Syringa D'Angelo , born Clair de Valence, is the daughter of Wisteria and Aedan . She was born in Salsola alongside her littermate Delphine. She has three half-siblings, two on her father's side: Alistair and Dagr , and one on her mother's side: Odessa .

Syringa grew into a life of wealth and privilege in Salsola's remote outpost near Freetown. Under the tutelage of her father she learned the arts of both archery and trade. She returned to Salsola proper as a young woman, ready and eager to make her mark on the place of her birth.

She is currently ranked The Warden and holds the Mercante job. She previously sponsored Bayani Grimm and Primrose Grimm. In 2017, Syringa changed her name to honor her mother who was a victim of the Red Star. In doing so she effectively cut ties with her ruthless father who did not approve of her gypsy lover and attacked her when she spoke against him.

Devastated both by the loss of her mother and angered by her father's abuse Syringa and Weaver traveled to Casa di Cavalieri to seek the help of her bastard brother who had his own vendetta against Aedan. They made a deal: in exchange for Aedan's location and common travel routes, Alistair would never speak to or seek out Syringa again. No contact, not even closure. Some time later, Syringa learned of her father's mysterious death on the road and knew that her father's controlling influence was finally ended. She took Weaver as her mate to ensure his secrecy.

When traveling outside of Salsola Syringa goes by the name of Persephone.

2.  Personality

Archer ArchetypeSilk Hiding SteelGood Bad Girl

Independent, Perceptive, Wary

  • Not one to be tied down, or held to any obligations Syringa does and goes where she pleases, when she pleases, and with whom she pleases. She is loyal to Salsola, it's culture and values, but beyond that she is very much her own person.

Curious, Cunning

...

Open-minded, Pleasant, Flirtatious

  • Syringa is generally kind, but not necessarily thoughtful. She cares for a select few people and likes to see them happy. Strangers and lesser acquaintences are greeted warmly but the sincerity is often lacking. However, Syringa is generally open-minded and accepts individuals from all walks of life (so long as they aren't a threat to Salsola.)

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Outlook: Optimistic.
  • Sociability: Extroverted. Dominant.
  • Expression: Alert, generally pleasant but often wary. Sometimes anxious.
  • Alignment: True Neutral-Chaotic Neutral

Motivations

  • Rising in social status
  • Her own pleasure
  • The Goddess Rah'khir

Fears

  • Ostracism: A common fear among many Salsolans. Syringa strives not only fit in but to stand out. Public humiliation and/or exile is a very real concern and to be avoided at all cost.
  • Rape: A sensual woman Syringa has no issue pursuing her desires. She loves the chase, she loves the act of sex itself and were it to become forced or twisted into something perverse it would deeply scar her.
  • Aedan de Valence: She knew who he was for some time but had no reason to fear her father until he attacked her, nearly strangling her for speaking out. As a ghost Aedan has made her life a waking nightmare and fear follows her wherever she goes.

Interests

  • Likes: Fine clothes and jewelry, fresh fallen snow, socializing, horse riding, foreign language and cultures, trade
  • Dislikes: Rapists and thieves, thunderstorms, spirits and the supernatural

Spirituality

Syringa's mother is a former priestess of the Khalif. Her father, however, is a life-long atheist with no regard whatsoever for religion. Death is his god. While Syringa is closer to her father, she does not share his belief. Instead, she believes as her mother does in the Khalif god trio.

  • As neither white nor black, Syringa belongs to the Huntress, Rah'khir. Rah'khir is the freest of the Khalif gods. She is neither bound by the light nor condemned to the darkness- a fact which delights Syringa who, herself, is not pulled to either side. Rah'khir is also a huntress of great skill, Syringa aspires to be the same. She worships with her bow and bears the mark of Rah'khir between her shoulder blades, scarred into her flesh.

Biases

  • Packs: Considers Salsola to be the elite of luperci society.
  • Casa di Cavalieri is full of foolhardy meddlers who don't know when to leave well enough alone. Also, her brother is king.
  • Sapient is an ideal place for pursuing trade. (It's also full of hotties!)
  • Species: With little to no basis for a personal bias Syringa is perhaps too accepting of other species.
  • Non-Luperci: Syringa is disdainful and disproving of feral lifestyles.
  • Sexuality: Accepting of homosexual relationships, but does not openly seek one for herself. She appreciates the beauty of other women, but prefers men.

Sexuality

Kinsey Scale 2

  • Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual

Syringa is flirtatious and accepting of both casual and romantic relationships and thrives on physical touch whether friendly or sexual. She shares her father's open attitude towards sex and believes there is no shame in the sharing of physical pleasure between consenting adults. She also considers it to be a valuable tool and would not mind playing the role of mistress.

  • While loving and devoted to her mate, Syringa and Weaver's relationship is an open one. Neither one is particularly possessive and when the opportunity for a new partner or experience presents itself they are free to seize it at their whim, no jealousy and no restraint. They always return to each other, however, finding a home in one another's arms.

Substances

  • Syringa is a social drinker but is always careful not to drink too much. She enjoys a good buzz but prefers to be in control of her mind and body and hates getting sick.
  • She has never tried any drugs besides alcohol. But would be open to the experience in a controlled setting.

3.  NPCs

3.1  Rayder

  • Species: Mixed breeding. Mongrel.
  • Age and DOB: 3-4 years, ~2011-2012
  • Description: Broad built with a pelt of russets, brown, cream, and accented by dark features. His eyes are a fierce, fiery looking amber.
  • Personality: Suspected mute, this slave's motives and past are not quite clear. He performs the regular duties of a hired guard, without any of the perks, as well as any of the more mundane tasks given to him all without rebellion or complaint. How much he knows or understands, as well as his feelings on his circumstances are unknown. He was acquired by Aedan in a trade with a Freetown slaver and after months of serving the de Valence patriarch Rayder was given to Syringa on her return to Salsola as a protector and house servant. What is known about this slave is that he is a native of Quebec and skilled in crude combat as well as general labor.

3.2  Pluie

  • Species: Mixed breed Arabian mare
  • Age and DOB: 2011 (~3 yr)
  • Description: Smoky grullo with a dark face.
  • Personality: Shy around strangers she is the daughter of Aedan de Valence's mare, Soleil. She was gifted to Syringa by her father as a means to teach Syringa responsibility. Though very skittish and fearful around Aedan, Pluie has taken to Syringa especially well. She is a sweet young mare but inexperienced and liable to spook at strange sounds and smells. Despite this she is obedient when relaxed and loves attention.

4.  Relationships

4.1  Family: D'Angelo, de Valence

  • Cousins:
  • Extended: Syringa has several ties to the D'Angelo bloodline

4.2  Relations

Family Relations

  • Delphinium D'Angelo To this day Syringa's sister remains as a bit of an enigma to her. The two were separated at a young age when her family moved to the outpost and Delphinium was forced to remain behind as collateral.
  • Alistair Callow-Knight They first met quite by chance, but it didn't take long for things to turn sour. Alistair demanded to know the location of their father. When Syringa (then Claire) refused him, he threatened violence. She led him into a trap.

Positive Relations

  • Weaver Valentine: Initially drawn in by his music, their first meeting took an unexpected (or perhaps entirely expected) turn, quickly becoming her first sexual encounter. He is a smooth talker, flirtacious, but genuinely caring (surprisingly). Syringa enjoys his company and feels most comfortable at his side. She shares his home with him part of the time and trusts him more than anyone else.
