"I'd really prefer going by Noel, but if you must, Lillias would do. Never Lily."
Name: Lillias Noel
Birthday: December 2nd
Special Characteristics: -
It should be said that Lillias is cold, strict and very pragmatic. Any and all, if not most relations, must be kept strictly business. She is careful to maintain a distance between herself and others, essentially isolating herself and avoiding as much social interaction as possible by maintaining a busy schedule, and is quick to reject any offers of friendship. While the girl is capable of being polite, she is particularly blunt and straight to the point. Haughty, sharp-tongued and snarky, she's not one to forgive easily, even if she does claim to forgive someone. Lily's inner turmoil manifests itself in her rage, but she does not allow herself to be blinded by it. Instead, she chooses to carry out her revenge in more tactful, less obvious ways, but sure to cause annoyance and occasionally harm to her wrongdoers. The girl has a habit of mocking and teasing others as well - whether they have the intelligence to understand her implications does not concern her however - but that also means she reads a lot into things. It comes as a blessing and a curse. With the bluntness of her words and snarky nature, she could start a riot if given enough time. A natural born warmonger, one could say. Usually, this trait wards off even the most persistent of social butterflies.
Yet, Lily is also an exceptionally talented liar and actress, and a very tactful speaker, making her an excellent choice for a diplomat or infiltrator. Her silver tongue works wonders - combined with her petite appearance, it's easy for others to overlook her. But she is not to be taken lightly - she's manipulative and deceitful. She will get what she wants at the end of the day, at whatever cost. She's not above killing, after all, although she'd prefer to keep her hands somewhat clean to keep the Council off her back. Ruthless and cunning, she delights in picking at others' minds and the control it gives her over them. And because she cannot allow herself to get close to people, she chooses to play with them instead.
There are, of course, some acquaintances she works closely with and have her unwaveringly loyalty, or at least more faith than given, but only a select few are lucky enough to earn her faith. Usually, they are long-time partners of hers. Trust is a double-edged word, after all. Due to this trait, Lily is distrustful, naturally making it difficult for people to trust her. It hurts, but she believes it a small price to pay. She relies heavily on her own strengths and accomplishments, therefore making her a poor teammate and very uncooperative with others when it comes to working in groups. In this, one could say she she's arrogant in thinking she can handle everything on her own.
In terms of leadership, Lillias would in all honesty make a poor, if not fair-ish leader should she actually learn to work in a team. She is capable of delegating and recognizing strengths and weaknesses, but she simply just cannot trust others to watch her back. Similarly, as a follower, she's so just as poorly, although it would be easier to complete her task because she does not need to direct the team or work under a spotlight. It should be considered that half the time she may not follow the specific instructions, but will eventually complete the task. A perfectionist to boot, Lily cannot stand sloppy work. This applies to her in battle as well. She always, always finishes the job, and gets incredibly upset with herself whenever she fails something. Her high expectations of herself combined with her general spiteful anger at everything compel her to keep improving. In battle, she relies more on her wits and cunning to fight and withholds her power cards and abilities as much as possible. She plans somewhat vaguely, but is not a stickler knowing that adaptability could very well keep the flow changing, and possibly more in her favour.
✦ Collecting - Lily has an eye for valuable items. While not on the constant lookout for collectors items, Lily knows how to appreciate them. Antique vases, teas, paintings, weapons and cameras, you name it! The older, the better! She loves a good old artifact, and the history it carries with it. Naturally, this also includes the collection of knowledge. Lily is a well-read individual, and loves a good book too. It's easy to please her with a gift of any of these mentioned items, but beware - she is no fool, and is capable of differentiating between the fakes and the true treasures.
✦ Singing - To herself, mostly. Lily sings for nobody else (except maybe her little brother, but it's to shut the brat up). She has no desire to be famous, or sing to an audience, hence often it's when she thinks she's alone or is incredibly distressed that she even breathes a single note. Otherwise, barely anyone is aware of the voice she has.
✦ Working - Guilty as charged. Lily is an intense workaholic, something she doesn't even realize herself. Any free time she has that isn't spent seeking employment or training, is spent running the household, taking inventory, doing paperwork, reading, heck, even cleaning is a hobby now. Lily cannot stand being idle, and gets fidgety with her knives when there is nothing to be done, hence the cuts on her fingers.
✧ Anything Unsanitary - Lillias hates filth with a vengeance. In her residence, or any area within her control, she will not tolerate blood. She will not tolerate mud. She will not even tolerate dust, especially when her little brother is involved. She is especially cautious when it comes to his fragile health, ensuring the surrounding environment is sanitized and spotless, and more than often takes it upon herself to thoroughly clean anything or anywhere that she considers remotely filthy. It's more or less become a hobby.
✧ Law - Naturally, for one who works beyond the rules of the Magic Council, the law is incredibly troublesome. She's well-read on them, and "keeps" to the important ones officially, but it is still a hassle when there's someone constantly monitoring you and telling you what not to do. It's annoying, but it's also what's brought down some of her business rivals, so she's somewhat pleased about that. Alas, they're still a pain, and she finds them very limiting for those who do follow it. Lillias Noel does things her own way, thank you very much.
✧ Overly Sweet Things - While she does have a sweet tooth, it is easily satisfied and she is never one to resort to eating actual sugar (unless it's brown, in which case sometimes she does). While she does not hate candy, she's not fond of them either and generally rejects any offers of them. Anything else is fine, but if it's too sweet it makes her feel nauseous.
✦ Power - Not surprising, considering how obsessed she is over it. Physical power, materialistic power, mental power even - she must have it all. This works in conjunction with her far of being weak. She may be tolerant to pain and suffering, but she does not like it one bit. If money is power to some, money she will get. If it's knowledge, she will force the books to read to her.
✦ Me, myself and I - Everything is about her. In her world, at least. She will not hesitate to get what she wants, by any means necessary. She cares only for herself and her little brother, but on the basis that he is the last of her blood and it would be humiliating if she couldn't protect even him. He's a burden on her, in all honesty. Her main priority is surviving, and the ones after... let's just say it involves lots of herself.
✦ Reputation - Lillias is a very prideful person, so it's needless to say that she's particular about her reputation. She wants to be feared and respected, not for connections of her background but for who she is. A force of destruction.
✧ Weakness - She's stubborn, incredibly so, and for good reason. She lost far too much as a child. It was frightening, to realize how weak and pathetic she was when everyone and everything she had disappeared so quickly, at the hands of someone she trusted. It's a cruel world; only the strong survive, so she will make sure she's strong. For every loss she suffers, it agitates her and she relieves the frustration by blaming herself, then training and pushing her limits, if not to become stronger then to at least prove she's trying to. When her plans backfire, and she is at the end of her wits, she snaps.
✧ Intimacy - The very idea of intimacy in general is foreign to her. She's uncomfortable enough as is with familial affection. Displaying it would be unthinkable, because it would allow others a chance to prey on her. She'd never know when someone could turn on her, and it's troublesome having to maintain the relationships. Besides, she's a busy girl.
✧ Losing everything - She's worked so hard to build her world from scratch again, from the moment she rose from the ashes of her former home, dying little boy in arms. While she no longer acknowledges her past, it did exist. She lost a brother, and raising her little cousin in his place cannot change that. Even if he calls her sister. She could survive without the new one, surely, but it would be a hassle to rebuild everything. There was always so much to do, and so little time.
Height: 160 cm
Weight: 45.3 kg
Hair: Platinum blonde, long
Eyes: Iridescent Cobalt Blue/Indigo
Skin Tone: Alabaster White
Lillias possesses a pair of soul-piercing, iridescent indigo eyes, speckled with purple and blue shades. Her platinum blonde hair reaches the end of her back, and appears white in certain lighting (or to the colorblind). Her alabaster complexion mean that her eye bags from a prolonged lack of sleep are more pronounced, but its easily dealt with using makeup. Her body is slim and well-toned with slender limbs. She has a fair amount of scars, most having faded and become pale and shiny with constant use of salves and scar-creams, but the fairly deep ones are still visible, mainly one just an inch away from her heart, another on the left of her lower back, and one on the right of her neck, right beneath her jaw. The faded scars and occasional fresh cuts on her fingers are from nicking herself with blades when cleaning or fiddling with them, and while her hands are slightly rougher than one would expect (she does fight, after all), she still maintains great care of her skin and almost always wears gloves, hence they aren't as calloused as they should be.
Lily enjoys dressing simply - but that does not mean she will settle for cheap clothing. Most of her wardrobe consists of luxury brands, silk, fur and similarly expensive materials. Of course, there are times where she finds decent clothes amongst non-branded stores, but she rarely ever goes shopping herself. Commonly seen wearing her hair down with her favourite silk ribbon, her clothing choices consist mostly of blues, whites and similar cool shades. Bright and intense colors tend to hurt her eyes. Her daily go-to would be a dark purple or blue knee-length dress, a pristine white waist apron and black stockings with a pair of Mary-Jane shoes. Simple and deceivingly innocent. During winter, she wears a similar outfit, but her shoes are replaced with winter boots and she sports a fur-lined coat over everything else, accessorizing with scarves and thin gloves. However, she's never seen without her set of dual knives.
Tattoo: Grey, top of left hand
