Madeira Craven

Physical Appearance:

Madeira has the porcelain skin, blonde hair and big blue eyes that would have been charming on someone else. Her beauty is severely undercut by being constantly underweight, exceedingly pale, and sporting permanent red rings of sleeplessness around her pale eyes. Regardless, she attempts to make up for her underwhelming natural looks with an emphasis on presentation. She will always be clean, with flawless skin that smells vaguely of skin cream and lemons. Her long, thin hair will be neatly arranged, and she will typically be dressed on the tasteful side of outlandish. Training from an early age has given her perfect unyielding posture and a pleasant speaking voice that comes with a strong, tilting accent.

When it comes to dress, Madeira, like any true Avalad, has made absolutely no effort to fit in. Besides her refusal to show more skin than is strictly necessary, her style is both unconventional and several centuries out of date. She prefers long dresses with full skirts and high, tight collars over corsets that give her the womanly shape the gods forgot to gift her. Her taste in jewelry can also be classified as ostentatious, with large stones and diamonds around her neck and through her ears.

Somewhere on her person she will always have a silver flask and four heavy rings. While on her hands she is rarely seen without her long silk gloves, the left of which covers a strange, shiny black stone-like mark covering her hand that is only present on odd days of the season. The flask, rings, gloves and mark all carry secret magical properties.
Markings :
Scars: (508av-Present) The undersides of her arms from wrist to elbow are thatched with short, thin scars and puncture marks from years of making soulmist with her own blood.

Scar: (90th of Fall, 516av) A puckered white scar cuts through from her palm to the back of her left hand. The wound has healed as of Spring 30th, but stiffness remains in the last three fingers.

Tattoo: (38th of Spring, 518) A large tattoo of a laughing hyena is splayed across most of her back.



Concept:

498 - 517 :
Madeira is affable but not charismatic, talented but not gifted, and she is loyal to her family, but she does not love them. To the outside world she is nothing but a dutiful young woman who does as she is told. Her manner towards others is courteous and social, her demeanour somewhat tense. Her family has deemed her acceptable, and to them she is just another cog in the machine that keeps their matriarch afloat.

But there are things that can wake the long dormant spark in her eye. Things that can sharpen her courteous tongue and rile her into action. Unfortunately, there are very few people in the world who share her fascination with death and magic. But anyone who wakes her interest can see a different side to the woman, one that has a fearsome appetite for knowledge, and the bravery to pursue it.

518 - Present

There is something just a little bit off about Madeira Craven. Perhaps its the way she interacts with death and insanity so casually, or the way her pale eyes light up with fascination where others would only show fear and disgust. Growing up in the lap of death and magic has made her strange, and living in the hands of a powerful family and mad city has made her resilient. She is comfortable in most social situations and jaded to all forms of shock and surprise, but a layer of stress runs beneath everything she does. She realizes that she is starting to outgrow her controlling family and that ambition is burning where before she was meek and submissive. The thought is both emboldening and terrifying.

With her weak body and narrow expertise, Madeira knows she is not a fighter. She is a negotiator and a mediator and considers her tongue her best weapon. Surrounding herself with a buffer of strong allies and dependable servants is her best defence against anything that works against her or means her harm. Yet this reliance on something so fickle has fostered a manipulative streak in the young Spiritist. She is not above using bribery, threats and magic to get useful people on her side. However, genuine loyalty will always be preferable to obligation, something she has learned from her own suffocating duty to her family, so she strives to be good to the people who mean her well. Yet it is undeniable that she is looking out for what is best for herself and those few people she considers hers.



History:

Madeira was born to the prestigious line of Craven through her father, Phillip Craven’s, blood.Unfortunately, his blood was weak, and his hold on the Craven name tenuous. He was twice removed from the main branch of the family, and the responsibilities of head of the house rested with his skilled and intimidating cousin, Madara. And though a trained Spiritist himself, Phillip's lacklustre skill did little to earn him the respect of the family.

With the birth of his daughter, however, the ambitious man saw an opportunity for the girl that he felt was denied him. He named his only child Madeira, as an ode to her namesake Madara, in some wild and pathetic hope that it would endear her to the girl. From birth Madeira was raised in a way Phillip thought ever good Craven should; he bleated notions of family and loyalty to his child before she even understood the words, and she was given the tools to raise her as a Spiritist along with rigorous schooling from a father that expected nothing less than perfection.

When the Madeira was fourteen, Phillip finally made the push to have the girl boarded in the Craven Manor and continue her studies under the tutelage of the main branch. Weeks later, Madeira was given a formal summons to supper with the head of house. It read like a courtesy, but both father and daughter knew it was a test. And so, armoured in silk and pearls, the girl supped with Madara, Minerva, and Leto Craven. Afterwards the child came home shaken and hard-eyed, though not a hair was displaced from it’s pearl net. To this day she’s never shared what happened at that dinner, much to her fathers ire.

Never the less, Madeira was deemed acceptable and invited to live and study in the Craven Manor. Phillip was fiercely proud, watching all his time, money and hard work finally pay off as he shipped his only child away. But as the two of them stood on the steps of the great house, suitcase in hand, Phillip suddenly began to worry. What if Madeira didn't measure up? What if this creature he crafted in his own, idealized image, somehow fell apart when he wasn’t there to watch her? Would she shame him in that way?

His last words to her, whispered in her ear as he kissed her tenderly on the cheek was: “Do not fail me.”

Possessions:

 
Clothing
ImageParty Dress This amazing magical garment morphs itself into a new version each time the dress is worn. It alters its own cut, colour, and decorative aspects to accommodate Madeira's changing style, shape and taste as well as providing a matching pair of shoes.
Image Yellow Silk Dress A textured dress with puffy sleeves and a long skirt
Image Blue Velvet Dress A blue dress with long sleeves, a thin plunging neckline and dark beaded designs around the edges.
Image Elegant Black Dress A long, high collar black velvet dress with a daringly open back. The whole thing is embroidered with stars in silver thread that sparkles demurely in the light.
Image Blue Cotton Dress A light, airy dress of thin cotton that reaches the floor.
Image White Lace Dress A pure and demure confection of lace, often belted.
ImageGreen linen dress A simple ankle length dress with a tight bodice and high collar
Image Fur Cloak A long warm cloak lined in white lynx fur
ImageFeather Cloak A magic garment purchased during the Alvadas Illusion Festival. It appears to be a cloak made of golden feathers, though in certain lights every colour of the rainbow can been seen. When in movement the garment floats beautifully as if lighter than air.
ImageMouse Cloak A very simple black cloak of luxurious mohair wool with a deep hood. It is imbued with a mysterious magic that prompts it to change in color and pattern to match the environment upon the verbal command "hide". * As of Fall 518 a brooch made of a mouse skull with alexanderite eyes has replaced the clasp.The maledicted fetish makes one intrinsically aware of all escape routs in a given space. It can not be deactivated and prolonged use can lead to paranoia.
Image Nightdress A long pink silk nightdress
Image Corset Tightly laced bone undergarment
ImageBlue linen dress Destroyed Fall 516. Has since been cut into scraps
ImageLeather slippers soft soled and simple.
Starting Package
ImageSimple undergarments
ImageCloak Red wool cloak with hood
Image White linen blouse and brown trousers
ImageHigh leather boots
 
Jewellery
Image Gold Choker A delicate, tightly fitted gold collar with four large teardrops of green diamond
Image Diamond Pendant A rope of diamonds with an single enormous blue emerald
Image Diamond Necklace A rope of faceted diamonds
Image Cameo Choker A choker made of black velvet that once belonged to Edith, Jomi's bondmate. It is currently their only clue in finding her.
Image Alexanderite Pendent A delicate gold chain holds a huge faceted gem that changes from purple to green in certain light.
Image Silver Comb An ornate hair ornament set with a faceted blue emerald
Image Gold Headband A gold headband lined with velvet and thickly studded with fire agate.
Image Spiritist Bracelets Two bracelets made from lengths of spiritist beads carved from jet, interspersed by silver cast in the shape of skulls. A precious gift from Allister.
Image Silver Belt A decorative silver belt inlaid with many slices of blue akalite.
Image Gold Earrings Gold earrings fashioned to look like flames, each holding a drop of fire agate.
[/tab][/table2][/tab]
 
Rings
Image Invocation Ring Silver, 20kt black agate. Hollow ring used to store soulmist to invoke Jomi
Image Invocation Ring Silver, 20kt moonstone. Hollow ring used to store soulmist to invoke Emma Chamelle.
ImageIntimidation Ring A maledicted bone ring with a bizarre catch. The ring bestows a threatening aura, but only while the one wearing it is possessed. Madeira wears it for Jomi's sake. +10 Intimidation
ImageAffiliation Ring This ring allows the wearer to learn, through a series of images that flash in the wearers mind, of another person’s affiliation to various organizations (gangs, businesses, religion, and families of importance) if they touch the target while wearing the ring.
ImageRiot Ring Made of the maledicted tooth of an unknown charismatic rebel leader, this ring, once per season, can be used to immediately disperse a mob no matter what their number or attitude is. Conversely, this ring can be used to immediately attract a mob which in no way shape or form is able to be controlled by the user. It can be only used once per season for disperse and once per season to attract.
Image Cursed Ring This fetish is a severely flawed attempt at Malediction. Made of the rib of a bitch in heat, what was meant to inspire loyalty instead curses the wearer with insatiable lust.

Animals
Image Bird Acquired here. A seemingly normal pigeon with an uninspired name, except that it is a shocking shade of cerulean blue. If released it will fly straight towards the largest group of the Inverted, wherever they may be located. Bird is a quiet, inquisitive, and unnervingly clever creature who enjoys treats and strokes. Madeira keeps it in a gilded birdcage in her home.
ImageRaj Acquired here. The mounted taxidermy head of a Kelvic tiger. The head is haunted by Emma Chamelle, the ghost of it's young deceased bondmate. Emma insists that Raj speaks to her, and is very protective of him. Madeira keeps him in her home.
Image Spooks Acquired here. A small black tom with large yellow eyes. Madeira bought the creature in an effort to give the ghosts living in her house a playmate so they'd stop messing with her and her things. Unfortunately the spiritual fibre of Spooks seemed to have been greatly exaggerated, and multiple daily possessions have driven the cat slightly mad.
Image Rosie Acquired here. A pretty red hen with a sweet disposition, normal in every way, besides her habit of laying an egg-sized rare gemstone a couple times a season. Though she truly belongs to Jomi, who himself has a bizarre attachment to the creature, Madeira looks after the chicken on the ghost's behalf. (rare gems are from listed lore and determined by random dice roll) Current Possession: 1 fire agate, 1 obsidian snowflake, 2 black diamond, 5 diamond, 1 green diamond, 1 akalite, 2 alexandrite
Image Big Red and the girls An old rooster and his five hens. They're kept in a hutch on the property of the Infinity manor, where they roam as they please. The house protects them from hawks and foxes, so the chickens have become bold and lack the skittish quality of their brethren.
 
Magic Items
Ghostnails A set of ten long and heavy ghostnails, nine made of iron and one of jet. The tools were custom crafted by an reimancer Isur and imbued by Madeira. When set in an unbroken circle they are impassable by all ethereal undead.
Gloves of the Spider Maiden These silvery silk gloves are patterned after a spider’s web. When worn, they appear to glisten like a spider’s web after a soft drizzle of rain. When the wearer brushes their face with their fingers while speaking to someone, that person will experience a hypnotic suggestion of “Trust me.” This effect works as if it were cast by a Competent Hypnotist with 40 skill points. It only enacts that particular suggestion and only works against a single target who is engaged in conversation with the wearer; once per encounter. The gloves possess the relatively minor secondary ability of allowing the never have to worry about being touched by spiderwebs as long as they are worn. It is as if the wearer is surrounded by an invisible aura that simply pushes the webs away from them. Click the link for item history and much more detail!
Shark Tooth Charm A weak fetish made of a maledicted Great White tooth and braided strands of Madeira's own preserved hair. The item seems to do nothing. Under a very specific and very peculiar set of circumstances, the wearer might chance upon its effects; it increases the strength of one's bite x2. Has since been gifted to Allister.
Starfire Key A gift from Leth. The surface of this small, silver key is crackled with lines of starfire, and in the bow is a tiny pearl shaped like a human skull. From sundown to sunrise the key’s power can be activated. Holding the key and turning it in an imaginary lock opens a silver doorway in the fabric of reality. It leads to a small, profoundly ancient looking cemetery that Madeira finds deeply soothing. While the cemetery itself is roughly 30-foot by 40-foot in size, only a small portion of it is accessible due to an invisible boundary that prevents travel beyond a 10-foot by 10-foot space. Thee link gives a profoundly more detailed description!
Djed Stone A gift from Aldgare Dusk. The smooth black stone is the size of an orange and contains an ancient magic that grants a significant boost to Madeira’s ability in Auristics, and delays the effects of overgiving. When the stone is held it melds into the palm, and the texture of the stone spreads over the entire inside of her hand. The stones can be used for up to one continuous day before they revert to their original form and requires a full day to recharge. She wears it on odd days of the season, typically under her lace gloves. The wielder receives a +25 bonus to Auristics.
The Spy's Sphere This amber tinted crystalline sphere will allow someone who is holding it to look into its depths and view for five chimes a target no matter what the distance is so long as the owner knows the target by having met them in person before. They will see the target as if viewing the scene like they are a bystander to the target and their activity. This item can be used once per day simply by thinking of the person in question and looking through the sphere. The person in question must be on Mizahar in the actual mortal plane.
Serpent’s Lenses A pair of simple, black spectacles with clear lenses. When worn, these spectacles strangely enhance how others perceive the wearer. The wearers voice sounds more seductive, their face is seen as more appealing and their movements seem more alluring. While worn, the spectacles grant a bonus of 10 to seduction
 
Weapons
Image Sword Cane Kickass hidden blade
ImageLight Crossbow A standard small punchy crossbow of polished wood
Image Dead Hand Crossbow A small ebony crossbow mounted on a black leather bracer embroidered with silver thread and imbedded with a strange magic. The weapon morphs the arm it's mounted on from fingertips to shoulder into a blackened skeletal one surrounded by a sickly green fire whenever the weapon is wielded. Hand returns to normal when weapon is not in use.

Soulbeads
Gifted to Madeira by her aunt Madara Craven when she first moved into the family Manor. Five feet of pebble sized jade beads are made into a closed circle, each bead containing a core of iron ore to add weight. Though not magical in itself, the beads can be imbued with soul mist to make a barrier inaccessible to ghosts. It's an invaluable tool for a spiritualist and Madeira's most treasured possession. Destroyed on the 63rd of Summer, 518. Madeira has kept the pieces.

People of Note


*Entries following completed threads

ImageName Status Description
Image JomiServant Interested in the power afforded by having an spectral servant, Madeira has used blackmail, bribery and threats to get the angry ghost on her side. But the dead Kelvic badger with temper issues and a snarky mouth may be a bit more than she can handle.
ImageAllister Bondmate Erratic, deranged, naive, broken and completely hers; Allister is everything Madeira never expected, and she loves him in a way she'd never thought herself capable. The Kelvic hyena is a creature of good intentions and poor judgment she is only just starting to understand.
Image Asterope Acquaintance An Ethaefal healer with a strong mind and a gentle heart, calm under pressure and invaluable in a crisis. After two twisted investigations together Madeira is in awe of the etherial beauty and her quiet determination.
Image Lani Stranger Childhood FriendRemembered as a bold and headstrong little girl, the mixed blood Eypharian/Chaktawe remains Madeira's oldest friend. Now a travelling soul, the woman has grown up self-reliant, reckless and determined in her quest for knowledge. Their relationship has rekindled in their adulthood, yet the Spiritist cannot seem to shake the childish awe she had always felt towards the older girl.
Image Gemma Parker Acquaintance A young Konti with endless energy and a good heart. Madeira sees her as still half a child, though the girl is near her age and has proved herself a capable healer. She's an endearing little thing with a secret pain in her as she struggles to find her place in the world.


Hiatus Accounts :
ImageName Status Description
ImageSavis Maren Ally A Nuit with a voracious appetite for vanity and a cold, distant and prickly attitude. Yet Madeira found within her a wealth of ambition, magic and madness that neatly mirrors her own. She considers Savis a kindred spirit, and coupled with her fascinating undead condition and bizarre magics she makes for a valuable friend.
Image Allassanachassanya Lover Missing A Dhani with a deep, strong mind and a reverence towards death and forbidden magic. After a chance meeting over a murdered corpse, Madeira became fascinated with the small woman. The two have developed a close bond over the seasons and she has earned Madeira's trust and respect.
Image Ambrosia Alar Friend A charismatic barmaid with depthless curiosity and iron optimism. Her easy charm and astounding ability to get along with Jomi, Madeira’s snarky ghost servant, as earned her a spot on Madeira’s short list of friends. She enjoys her company, though the woman’s mysterious ties to Spiritism continue to confuse her.
Image Avela Acquaintance The young Konti candlemaker is a gentle soul in way over her head. Madeira is torn between protective maternal instincts and a desire to eject her from her comfort zone.
Image Hurik Servant Madeira was the first person to speak to Hurik in the ghost's new un-life. She has an affection towards the man that rides on her sense of responsibility towards him and a strange sense of ownership. He is unpredictable and snarky and a bit of a lout, and has an unfailing ability to leave Madeira wrong-footed.
Maro Ally DeceasedAfter a rocky start, where a possessed Madeira tried to kill him, the two became unwitting allies in a haunting investigation. Madeira finds the Kelvic Eiyon to be frustrating and flawed in his motivations, yet she holds a grudging respect towards him. He is a good man with a good heart unlike she has ever seen before.
Image DexAlly Madeira's knight in shining armour, the Symenestra Mercenary was her last hope in exorcising a murderer from the Crooked Playhouse. The experience cost them dearly, and the two find themselves helping each other one last time to pick up the pieces. Madeira sees Dex as a brave, broken and complicated creature.
ImageCabochonAcquaintance The first Pycon Madeira has ever met. Though she doesn't know him well, she sees him as a polite, awkward overthinker with a good heart. She is interested in getting to know the clay man further.
Image Roland Eir Enemy A world traveller, a magic user and a liar, Roland slipped into Madeira's enmity from almost the moment they met. The feeling is mutual, as his hard-bitten and secretive personality clashes hard with Madeira's controlling nature. The two would be perfectly content if they never saw each other again, but the universe has different plans.
Image Penny Noor Acquaintance A bright, cheery girl with a charming sense of humour, passion for art and an eye for the details seems an odd choice of companionship for Madeira, but somehow it works. She is interested in knowing more about the woman.
Image Terag Ally The craftsman responsible for Madeira's unique set of ghostnails, the Isur has proved himself to be kind, principled and dedicated to his arts. His secret interest in Reimancy and Magecrafting is of great interest to the ambitious young Spiritist.

Thread Acquired:
Haunting of the Golden Hand

Concept: A relatively new spirit, Emma is the ghost of young girl who died of a wasting illness in Riverfall. She's kept her physical appearance as she was when she died; a plump, smiling girl with chestnut curls, big brown eyes, and scabs across her face and hands from the disease that killed her. She is under the delusion that a snarling taxadermied tiger head (called Raj) speaks to her. 

 
History: Madeira found Emma on the merchant ship The Golden Hand in the Winter of 516, after being summoned to deal with a vicious ghost in the cargo hold. As it turned out, Emma was haunting and protecting a fur that was once her Bengal tiger bondmate, Raj, who was skinned and sold to the merchant captain after her death. At Madeira's insistence Emma now lives in her house, accompanied by the stuffed tiger, until the Spiritist can exorcise her properly. The girl spends most of her time talking to Raj and playing with Bird, Madeira’s pet pigeon.
