Alias: Althea Eventide
Age: 15 years(?)
Birthday: December 18th
♢ Right arm and upper torso are all wrapped in bandages
TL;DR: Impulsive, likes murder but tends to just do whatever's most convenient for her.
don't read all this shit below, it's absolute mind garbage
Althea is a daring yet childlike person, always facing issues with unwavering nonchalance. She tends to voice any of her thoughts as they come to mind with no regard who she may be speaking to. But this is just one road bump to overcome when interacting with her because Althea tends to not have any valid reasoning for her actions. Often she doesn't have a logical motive at all, acting entirely on impulse and doing whatever she wants whenever she wants to. The only point of time where she doesn't act irrationally would be if she was attempting to preserve her sense of humanity. In those cases, Althea would stifle any of her more violent and apathetic impulses, producing a delay between an event and Althea's reaction to it. And when she finally does react, she'll do so in a short, concise manner. This often causes her to come off as oblivious or just incredibly indifferent. But seeing as her instinct is to respond with the same level of care as a wild animal, it's a necessary precaution. This leads to many blank stares, silent moments of no movement, and other odd, cold gestures that wouldn't otherwise be expressed by someone with a personality like Althea's.
She doesn't mind bending the rules to her advantage and has little to no respect for distant figures of authority in the first place. Althea just finds that abiding by laws is more convenient than going against them. It helps that many enforced regulations are against being acting with ill-will for no reason, something that Althea doesn't want to do anyway. And yet, she aims to become stronger as a mage and finds great joy in battle, both of which are paths that will lead to violent conflicts. So instead of just avoiding it completely, she tends to just prevent herself from getting completely immersed in combat. Amid battles, she's always ready to stop herself from committing a truly inhumane act. This doesn't mean she doesn't kill people, Althea just refuses to go out of her way to do so for her enjoyment. At her core, the young girl undoubtedly loves to revel in the suffering of others, but she simply denies herself from indulging in such things. Thus, when Althea kills she attempts to do so with no real malice towards the victim. However, this distinction doesn't stop her from murdering when it isn't required, doing so thoughtlessly without even considering alternatives.
The youth is a rather straightforward person, and her capacity to lie is heavily dependant on the situation. Most of the time she literally could not be bothered, but sometimes she doesn't hesitate to deceive others for her convenience. She behaves in a childish, selfish manner, doing whatever she wants with minimal self-restraint. Additionally, she possesses just about no social awareness. Maybe it's because she grew up away from society, but she can be so naive at times that it crosses over into the realm of stupidity. The most everyday of situations could leave the youth absolutely confounded. Following her internal line of logic is incredibly muddled, but she does indeed have one. That means Althea could potentially conclude chocolate is made through human sacrifices and give you a "valid" reason for believing so.
In battle, Althea is practically the same person as out of it. She restrains herself from being too inhumane but doesn't hesitate before throwing hands. She typically approaches her enemy head-on, but can still use tactics of her own making to succeed. She does so by taking advantage of her surroundings, knowledge of her enemy, and any other possible factors. The youth excels at one on one combat, yet doesn’t loathe having to plow through mass amounts of opponents. Each one offers a different flair to battle, and as long as she isn’t acting purely on instinct, she'll be fine.
Althea wouldn't mind having to work under or as a leader. After all, it’s a commonplace occurrence in the world of magic. She does what she needs to do as long as she retains her sense of humanity without any problems. Of course, if she doesn’t like her leader she would be naturally inclined to find an excuse to simply not do what they say, but those instances don’t happen often. But, if she was in a leadership position, Althea would probably be able to manage somehow. Nothing about her garners any form of respect, she acts on impulse, and she's clueless about many things. However, when she's given a task, she will go to any lengths to complete it.
♢ Combat || Althea loves to engage in fights with those around her. It doesn't matter as long as the other combatant's strength isn't too far below her's.
♢ Sleeping || Despite the fact that Althea maintains high-energy during her waking hours, she spend most of her time sleeping.
♢ Mountains || Althea loves the mountains and anything that reminds her of them: snow, fir trees, even a gust of some crisp, chilly air. Having spent a large chunk of her life living in them, she has many good memories connected to them.
♢ Unnecessary Suffering || People in pain for no good reason is something Althea could very well gain some sort of enjoyment from, but she chooses not to. People are meant to be empathetic, so when someone else feels bad, they do too, and no one likes that. Therefore, it is only logical that Althea too would seek to prevent any suffering that she deems unwarranted.
♢ Hot Weather || Althea loathes the heat and would do almost anything to keep cool. She could use magic to keep herself at a preferred temperature, but even looking at things that appear much too warm for her subsequently causes her to feel the same.
♢ Bothersome People || The range of those who annoy Althea is rather broad. It may be someone who said just one thing that got on her nerves or a genuine maniac, but half of the time that proves to be no problem due to how malleable her opinions of others are. However, if someone continues to inconvenience her, Althea may just deem them "not worth the effort".
♢ Strength || Almost all of Althea’s actions are in pursuit of surpassing her limits. And although that is her main drive, it isn't truly her wish. However, she can't shake off her natural desire for growth.
♢ Friendship || Althea pursues new friendships in even the most questionable areas. She always wants to be around people and to feel the comradery with others. After all, relationships are extremely important to her, and she wishes to learn how to communicate with those around her.
♢ Humanity || Althea's main priority is to maintain the idea that she's a "human being". At times she feels as if the definition of humanity is a bit vague, but she more or less just doesn't want to devolve into a vicious monster.
♢ Needles || Althea freezes just at the sight of those pointy little things. The thought of those thin knives stabbing into her arm is never pleasant.
♢ Confined Spaces || Althea suffers from claustrophobia, so she can't handle tight spaces. Not being able to see the sky puts her on edge and being enclosed into a small space makes her instinctively panic.
♢ Isolation || Althea doesn't mind being alone for a short period, but long stretches are unbearable. She'll be content with anyone, even if they abhor her.
Eyes: Blue / Red / Gold
Skin Tone: Pale
Appearance: Althea has a rather atypical physique for her age, seeming to be more like a child than a teenager. Her carefree attitude and mannerisms doesn't help with the childish impression either. But apart from that, her eyes occasionally shift colors between blue, red and gold depending on the circumstances. But more often then not, they're red.
Guild: Fairy Tail
Tattoo: Left Shoulder | Pale Blue
