Hollis Raegard

Race: Human
Gender: Female
Age: 21
Birthday: 11, Spring, 498.
Birthplace: Ravok

appearance:

Hollis stands with her shoulders held back at all times, her hair always combed, her nails always clean. She believes in presentation. She prides herself on being concerned with beauty, and holding herself to a certain standard.. This is how she was raised, afterall. The careful calculation of one's public persona leads to always having the upper hand.
Hollis is fair complected, her skin tone relatively uneven and pink in the crevices of her face. Her hair is a muted shade of brown, often kept cut into a shoulder-length bob. She favors wearing it up, but is known to let it down and frame her heart-shaped face. Her eyes are a deep grey--outer blue irises with brown tones around the pupils--and somewhat small.
She was quite a plain woman by most standards. Her beauty is communicated more through her mannerisms, through the way she carries herself, not by relying on natural beauty; the tone of her voice and her inflections play a role in this, everything down to her body language plays into this. Her beauty resides in her unwavering sense of self.
Head high, heart forward, she is Hollis Raegard.

what lies beneath it all?


A woman born of modest means, Hollis was raised by her mother, Haldine. Her mother was left a somewhat large sum of Mizas by her great-grandfather, something she inherited right before Hollis came into the world. This money allowed Haldine to stay with Hollis and be present in her upbringing. The dowry was nothing to gawk at--just enough to allow them a roof over their head, food, and clothes.
Haldine took this as an opportunity to teach Hollis everything she could of the world. She taught Hollis how to understand social situations as a tactician, how to see the motivation of others under the masks they wear. Haldine grew up in a home and city where these skills were useful in survival, and was taught by her mother. She passed these skills onto Hollis as best she could.
Something the women of the Raegard family has passed down to their daughters for the last few generations: the ability to influence others using a system composed of calculated suggestions. It was called different names over the generations. Haldine called it Hypnotism, said she learned of its official name through an old text. Haldine felt it important to continue the tradition and pass this down to Hollis. She taught Hollis to wield her hypnotic abilities as an asset and weapon. A simple giggle at the right comment, with a glazed glance with her grey eyes, could change the course of an entire night. Hollis was taught to use this as a quite weapon, to never let others know what she was up to. Best to not let others know they are being manipulated.
The relationship between the mother and daughter was not an easy one. There were darker days in Hollis's childhood, and not all of them did she remember. A past best left buried in the soil of her mind.
In the Summer of 519 AV, as Hollis sat across from her mother having their morning tea, Haldine met Hollis's gaze, her expression blank. A stream of blood dripped from her nose, and her eyes rolled to the back of her head. She fell from her chair to the ground, her head hitting the hardwood floor of their apartment.
"Mother!" Hollis cried out, rushing to her side, cradling her head in her arms. Haldine's stare was blank, lifeless--her mother had died suddenly, with no warning or obvious cause.


Alone now in the city of Ravok, she must forge her own path.



conceptual musings~

Hollis values information, keeping up with societal norms, the subtle undertones of conversation, emotional maturity, loyalty. Her political leanings and moral outlook are mostly neutral, currently holding no specific set of beliefs, aside from honoring Rhysol. Currently trying to find her place in her home city of Ravok after the recent death of the only family known to her. Let us hope she figures out who she is and what she wants soon...
