Lisa has the innate power to cast illusions, trick people's eyes into seeing what isn't there. Just kidding. She doesn't have any real arcane gifts like other students at Cascadia; however, her stage persona is that of a flashy, Las Vegas witch. Whether it's cards, magical boxes, or escapology you can bet that she has studied the hell out of it so that she can perform tricks illusions on the fly. Granted, some of the more impressive displays of magic require some set up but she can and will find ways to entertain you, even if her illusions fall flat.

H E I G H TXANDXB U I L D: 5'8" and 119lb. Slim, but wholly curve-free.

Lisa wears her weight the same way as any other woman with high metabolism: not at all. Though she can eat a buffet out of business none of the food seems to stick to her and her family often questions whether she has an eating disorder or if all of it went to her height. Rail thin and boxy, her figure isn't the hourglass wonder that her other sisters inherited, though she doesn't mind that too much. Were it not for her fashion sense she could have easily been a Brandy Melville girl, but she has too much dignity for that aesthetic. Her normal clothing consists of leggings, crop tops, and the occasional sundress if the weather is just right. She feels at home in solid colors and will rarely, if ever, explore patterns unless absolutely necessary, or if it's for a costume. By contrast, her onstage looks have a bit more pizazz. Throwing away the classic white leotard, she opts for body-hugging, short dresses and sparkling patterns. Heels are a must and her makeup goes from zero to winged eyeliner and smokey eye shadow to accentuate her brown eyes. She has no issues showing skin and has used it as a distraction on more than one occasion. Her skin is free of tattoos, although her ears are pierced and she has a some acne scars on her back.

P E R S O N A L I T Y:
Lisa is a firm woman who knows what she wants. Unfortunately, most of the things that she wants are intangible. For as long as she could remember, she wanted to be part of something bigger than herself, to be special beyond a reasonable doubt. Compared to her siblings, she doesn't see her piano accolades, high SAT/ACT scores, or track trophies as much to go by nor is the "honor" of Ivy League enough to satisfy her longing for adventure. She's become numb to the heaps of praise lobbied onto her as a child and if anything, feels robbed of adversity. Growing up in a bubble meant she had all the time in the world to foster her skill in anything that inspired her (of which there were many). Because of this, she is unaware of the privilege that she holds nor the arrogance that bleeds off of her words whenever she attempts to discuss the "difficulties" she's experienced.

Nonetheless, she's never knowingly wielded her social status to hurt others. She welcomes friends from all walks of life and loves having the opportunity to chat whether it's about the mysteries of life, conspiracy theories, or simply showing them her latest magic trick. For her innate ability to learn, she's never felt satisfaction from anything except for prestidigitation or solving mysteries. It seems that anything else she tries her hand at, she masters (or at least becomes competent at) too quickly and thusly, becomes too bored to continue. Magic however, has captured her attention, not only because it combines so many aspects she enjoys (performance, sleight of hand, engineering, etc.) but also because it is an ever-evolving craft. Magicians perform a new trick, the audience is dazzled, somebody eventually debunks them, rinse and repeat.

Unfortunately, her pursuit of challenge does not make her immune from criticism. If you tease her, she'll laugh it off and likely tease you back, but it's easy to tell when you are getting on her nerves. Her ego is fragile and there are times when she feels the need to "prove" that her interests aren't childish or that her theories aren't totally crazy. She knows that people see her love of magic as more of a quirk than a serious hobby and part of her wonders whether people humor her if she had been born to a different family instead.

T H EXXP A S T

Lisa grew up on the upper east side of Manhattan where all of New York's elite congregated for business, pleasure, and ending up on the front page of some type of tabloid. Her family was consisted of a Chinese business woman and a Singaporean real estate mogul whose extended families would have made their upper middle class household seem absolutely impoverished by comparison. With a biweekly maid, private tutor, and on call chauffeur, their children (two daughters and a son) rarely had to lift a finger and were told to, instead, focus all of their efforts on becoming cultured, well-rounded individuals. They were told from a young age that one of them was to inherit the business, one to take over their father's real estate empire, and the other to find their own prestigious career (meaning doctor, engineer, or lawyer).

Much to her siblings chagrin (and her own parents' delight), she excelled in every class she took and every instrument that she dabbled in, making her the perfect candidate for any of the three paths her parents set out for her. It gave her leeway to explore her random interests be they expensive (horseback riding), frivolous (trading card games), or time consuming (rhythm gymnastics). The pattern was simple: she would find a new hobby, her parents would buy her the best equipment money could offer, she would obsess for a few months, and then drop it entirely. Sibling competition (and accusations of favoritism) was not uncommon but being the "golden child" meant she could deflect it.

Her true love finally landed on prestidigitation after watching a magic show in Las Vegas. To most, it may not have seemed like anything special but the way that he drew everyone's attention, redirected their attention, and pulled off that seemingly impossible illusion captivated her. It drove her to bombard him with questions, to which he jokingly told her he was a wizard. She ran with the idea and her parents humored her, thinking she would go through with the usual cycle; however, it stuck. She just kept trying and trying whether it meant showing off to her cousins, playing little tricks, or participating in the school talent show.

Nobody could doubt her intelligence given that she still maintained her grades and racked up accolades in her extracurricular activities, but they certainly faulted her immaturity behind her back. At best her love affair would fizzle out by senior year and at worst she would continue magic as a hobby during college at a parent-approved Ivy League college so it came as a surprise when she chose Cascadia College. Though old, the institution wasn't famous outside of opening its doors to the public less than ten years ago. It was thought that the college only accepted the children of alumni but otherwise, it didn't have any more prestige than her other options. The question became "why Cascadia then?" As it turned out, the main reason behind Lisa's choice were rumors of something paranormal beneath the campus's surface. Her parents were, furious and threatened to cut her off until they settled with the fact that, if nothing else, Lisa could hopefully, forge powerful connections.

So begins...

HATCH CUNNINGHAM

xxxit always seems to slip away

Honestly, Hatch was surprised it had taken her housemates a full two weeks to throw a party. She’d been in desperate need of a release, and she’d been around for a week longer than most of them. But then again, she reminded herself, her housemates seemed to have a slightly better relationship with their families than Hatch did. Classes had only been back a week, and that was probably the most stressful thing most of them wanted to escape.

Hatch had left it until the last minute to leave to go home, and she’d come back as soon as possible. And even then, the few weeks she’d been home had been insufferable. Her oldest brother had announced his engagement, which had just resulted in more boring parties with her parents, where she was expected to drink wine and make polite conversation and wear a dress that made her look like every other businessman’s trophy daughter. Her father’s latest attempt at setting her up with some nice businessman’s son had backfired, even if the conversation had lasted a full ten minutes longer than usual. Her parents had spent the time they weren’t gushing about her brother and how wonderful this was for the family making strained conversation with Hatch about college. Her mother had brought her shopping, which had been an ill-fated attempt at converting Hatch to a more “appropriate” style of dressing. Hatch had, at least, gotten some new shirts out of it.

So when her housemates had suggested a party, Hatch had nearly fainted with relief. She’d gotten the word out among her friends and had even helped decorate a bit. They’d told everyone to bring their own drinks, but still had a ready stash of spirits and mixers, just in case, and had plenty of food to go around. They knew nobody was coming for the food, but also knew that it would be appreciated. Especially by whatever dumb freshmen would probably show up on an empty stomach. It always happened.

But It almost seemed like everybody had forgotten the events that had gone down shortly before Christmas. It seemed to just be another one of those events that was hot on everybody’s lips for a few weeks before fading into legend. Of course, a student being found dead on campus seemed to deserve a slightly more prominent place in everyone’s mind. Especially when it was clear they were murdered. The police were still around, asking questions, and there was a much tighter security presence on campus after dark. But if they hadn’t gotten the answers they needed before Christmas, they more than likely weren’t going to get the answers they wanted now, and the event had turned into a source of gossip.

“I heard he was in trouble with a gang,” one of Hatch’s roommates declared from where she lay on Hatch’s bed. Hatch raised an eyebrow, glancing at Lotta. “Drugs, guns, the whole thing.”
“I heard it was a cult.” Francis appeared from nowhere at Hatch’s door.
“A cult, Francie? Really?” Hatch laughed, leaning in to finish applying her lipstick.
“Yeah. Satanists.”
“Pretty sure his death wasn’t ritualistic enough for it to be a cult,” Lottie remarked.
“He pissed them off and they snapped. James says a senior approached him and tried to talk him into going to some service and then when he refused, the guy got really pissed off. He definitely seemed capable of murder.”
“Or, you know, it was just a mugging,Hatch remarked, raising an eyebrow and turning around to face them and taking a sip from her Jack and Coke. “Sometimes things are just painfully ordinary and boring.”

Ordinary and boring. Two things Hatch was determined to never be. Her dress was another present from her mother. It had been pointedly laid out for her before one of the many parties she’d been forced to attend, and was one of very few outfits that her mother picked out for her that Hatch actually liked. However, Hatch took comfort in the fact that she was pretty sure her mother wouldn’t have liked her shoes or her makeup, and relished that.

Even though the party was in her own apartment, Hatch waited until it sounded like there were plenty of people there before making her appearance. Looking like she’d been waiting for everyone else would just make her look desperate, so she waltzed out of her bedroom and scanned the party with a raised eyebrow. It seemed that everyone else had been as excited for the party as they had been. She made her way over to the kitchen to pour herself another Jack and Coke (heavy on the whiskey, of course), where she positioned herself to continue scanning the room and either find a familiar face or someone who at least looked interesting.

Arcane ║ Outfit ║ Hex: #C24E00

Image Image Image

Winter break wasn’t anything special for Isabella. She was doing fine at Cascadia, making connections with other families, keeping her studies on track, as well as enjoying herself, though the second wasn’t that hard when she could spend an evening using her arcane magic on books instead of actually studying like some of the other students. Being home would be a nice break from the college life and a reminder of who she was and her goals.

At the Vayne Estate, Bella spent some time with her family, fortunately three of the four Vayne children were able to come home for break at the same time, so their parents could show them off all at once, which included a large gala. Her parents had planned it when they received Isabella’s schedule and communicated with their other children, and sent out the invitations to most of the well known Arcane talented families in the Northern Hemisphere, while traveling would be required for some, it was still a Vayne celebration. Isabella usually didn’t care about who was invited, but after letting it slip to her parents about the type of character the youngest child of the Taliesin family was, her parents rescinded their invitation. They didn’t expect them to actually come, but it was more so sending a message. There was talk about the Cunningham family, but her father once again decided against inviting them, as he had done every other time they planned on throwing a ball. Their curse of female only gifted arcanes was too much of a risk to Vayne bloodline.

Bella enjoyed her time at home, talking about her studies and who she was able to connect to, but not much had really change in the first couple months compared to her first year, so when she got bored at home, Isabella was the first Vayne child to leave, though the other children quickly followed and returned to their normal lives, Isabella’s younger sister gifting her a few outfits made from her own arcane magic, ones that Bella would for sure be showing off.

Isabella took her time actually getting back to Cascadia, but was glad to be back, Cascadia was the first real step to prove herself to herself and to her family, and so far it was going great. Though she shared the same opinion as her family about mundanes being allowed entry, it was nice to have even more people know her name. Though she mostly ignored the gossip and rumors about another death on campus, it was another human so not worth Bella’s worry. What surprised her though as she was settling back into the groove, she heard rumors of a party being thrown. And usually she wouldn’t care, parties were common at a college, but what threw her off that it was being thrown by a well known, acquaintance of hers, Harmony Cunningham. Or mostly known around campus as Hatch.

Under the Vayne household, there was much preparation that went into getting ready for a party, but Isabella wasn’t one for those traditions at Cascadia, mostly just focusing on looking stunning, making herself known, and enjoying herself. Bella knew this party wouldn’t be Arcane only, so she sent messages around spreading word about the party Isabella Cecelia Vayne would be going to first after winter break, making sure Harmony would hear she would be coming. Also making sure Lisa would be there, one of the few non-arcane people she could tolerate, but actually enjoyed herself with.

When the hour of the party rolled closer, Isabella focused on making sure her hair was perfectly wavey and flowing over the collar of her dress, as well as her nails were shining; she relished in her natural beauty and rarely wore make-up. The dress Isabella was going to wear was from her sister, made from real ermine fur, as well as enchanted to draw a bit more eyes and put off a relaxing aroma. Bella stood in front of the mirror checking herself out and twirling a bit before throwing on her knee high boots, that would give her a couple more inches in height, and heading to Hatch’s shared flat for the festivities.

It didn’t take her long to arrive, but when she did, she was glad the party was already in effect. Growing up, she was taught to never arrive at a party earlier, harder to show off with less people in the vicinity then when the party was already started and more people were on site. Her boots made a loud clicking on stairs leading towards the door and people were already turning their heads towards Bella; partly because of her enchanted outfit, partly because of her look, and partly because of her name.

As she walked through the room, Isabella bumped into a familiar face, though one that she didn’t care too much about. Monet Grey. “Oh hey girl. Fancy seeing you out and about at a party like this. Very interesting sweater. And hat. I'd never thought of wearing something like that, especially together, good for you.” Bella gave a light smile under her lips and shrugged her shoulders. It wasn’t long until someone behind her caught her attention, a good distraction from her current conversation. “My little Lisa Chu. How are you?” She said, embracing the mundane. “Hope your break wasn’t as boring as mine. Family parties and a lot of talking, parents love showing me off.” Bella continued, rolling her eyes a bit.

Isabella perked a bit as Lisa mentioned a new trick. “Oh please share, and once you do, let show it off to the others. But what shall we be drinking together?”

Lisa Chu | Human| #E10600 | Outfit | Bag


Lisa arrived relatively early to the party with a bottle of Moscato in one hand and plenty of hugs in the other. She seemed to be a hit among most all the circles that congregated around one another, which was a good thing considering that all of her housemates split off the moment that they entered the door. She chose something semi-casual for the night: a pink sweater and black skinny jeans, both of which were layered under a long, white cardigan. She kept her hair tousled and her make-up minimal, opting for a tinted moisturizer and lip gloss to kick off the new semester. She had to remind herself that this a "shoes" household and even if they didn't have maids, she need not take off her heels.

Despite their wealth, the Chu family still followed certain traditions from taking off their shoes to her grandma praying to their ancestors every morning to bragging about the latest handbag her mother got on sale, even if it was secretly counterfeit. Her own bag, of course, was a genuine white, Musubi camera bag bought directly from Acne Studios. The only other gift she'd given herself was a custom deck of cards (Bicycle brand natch) for the same reason that most women bought new dresses for the season.

"Lotta hey! How's it going?" she asked before skipping towards one of her past project partners, "Juan Carlos! I haven't see you since October. Where did you go"

As quickly as she slid by him however, she left to go find the one person she'd actually come to the party for.

Isabella Vayne.

Lisa caught wind of her best friend crashing the party a few days after word got out about Hatch throwing a back-to-school party with her housemates. For whatever reason, she didn't seem to mind that Lisa hadn't told her nor that she hadn't been invited. For all the things that the Vayne woman was, possessive was not one of them. She almost seemed to enjoy bringing more people into the fold.

“My little Lisa Chu. How are you? Hope your break wasn’t as boring as mine. Family parties and a lot of talking, parents love showing me off.”

The Asian woman returned Isabella's hug with a warm smile before nodding in agreement.

"I wish I could say the same but my parents are seriously obsessed with family so our trip to California was nothing but visiting relatives and shopping of all things. But-" she pulled out a deck of cards, "I did get these! I've been working on something new and if you'd like I could show you."

Before she open her cards, Bella proposed grabbing a drink, which was certainly something Lisa didn't mind. Granted, it would have been nice to put her bag down first but time that could spent putting her things away could be time spent drinking.

"You read my mind!"

As they began walking towards the kitchen, she found Hatch sauntering over with a strange glint in her eye. She could feel the tension cutting the atmosphere of EDM and alcohol, replacing it with the rivalry of two warlords fighting for control of Cascadia.

"Of course! I wouldn't miss a chance to catch up with everyone."

And Lisa would stay neutral because as dramatic as her internal monologue might have been, she could never predict where those two would end up.

Isabella smiled as her mundane talked a bit about her small winter break. Bella would’ve liked to do a bit more shopping, but couldn’t exactly complain about the clothes her sister had given to her. When Lisa pulled a deck of cards out of her new bag, which Isabella noted to herself to talk to her about later, her face began to glow a bit more, especially with the added information about learning a new trick. “Girl. Of course I want you to show me, how am to advertise the ‘amazing Lisa’ without knowing the show.”

Isabella was leading the way towards the parties kitchen, knowing the layout of the apartment from her previous adventures. She knew Lisa was behind her, well more so assumed because she wouldn’t know why she wasn’t. Though a certain voice talking to Lisa made her stop and turn around, changing her expression from a happy and entertained look, to more of a serious look and crossing her arms and leaning on one leg. The one and only Harmony Cunningham, or more well known and preferring the name of Hatch. Bella rolled her eyes when Hatch thanked Lisa for coming, even though Isabella was the reason the non-arcane student had come to the party.

When Hatch spoke about her outfit, Bella squinted a bit, shooting her a glare. She had already looked Harmony over, but did it again, with more exaggerated movements. “Yeah, I guess it’s a good party.” Bella began to talk, extending her arm out and checking out her black white painted nails. “And thanks. My sister is just starting to get big in the fashion industry. Maybe if you had come to my family's gala you’d know that.” She shot a smirk at the arcane, knowing full well there was no invitation. “Oh sorry Lisa. It’s… a complicated matter. Maybe next time I can sneak you an invite.” She said to her companion with a wink, knowing full well the chances of that were slim to none.

As she turned from speaking to Lisa, Isabella’s eyes wandered a room for a second, somehow landing and meeting the look of a certain someone, someone who she hadn’t talked to or even seen since their fight at the Vayne family party. Lucia Luciano. Lucia seemed to flip out at her about not saying the right pronouns to her which one thing led to another and them ending on bad terms, but the woman’s last words stuck with Bella since. "You know, for a genius, you really are so ignorant." But even now she looked as great as before, a much different outfit that Isabella was wearing, but paired amazignly with the usual face gems and look she would wear. Her eyes darted away from Lucia as Hatch spoke about her outfit.

“Though your outfit is great, fits your figure. I’m pretty sure I saw some maids and stewardess wearing the same thing. Anyways. We were just heading to the kitchen for some glasses that for the wine my dearest one here brought. Welcome to join us Harmony, but I know that you have certain company you like to hang around with. Let’s go Lisa, I’m thirsty and wanna see this new trick of yours you’ve been.” Isabella flipped her hair and headed towards the kitchen, already getting flustered with Hatch and would have to ‘discuss’ things with her later.

Isabella opened some cabinets to find some actual wine glasses, not wanting to use ‘solo cups’ for the Moscato Lisa had brought, and quickly opened the bottle to pour them some wine. “You hear the gossip about another student's death?” The redhead asked, curious about the mundane’s opinions on it. She leaned in close for a second and lowered her tone of voice. “I even heard it could have been magic related and some cult had kidnapped a few days prior.” She said quietly, mostly wanting to tease Lisa a bit about Cascadia’s rumors about arcanes and magic, even though they weren’t actually rumors, but she didn’t need to know that.

Lisa walked alongside Isabella, keeping a steady smile as Harmony made an obviously snide comment regarding the redhead's outfit. It wasn't uncommon for the upper class to wear fur, albeit the trend towards cruelty-free meant that pelts would be harder and harder to find. Personally, she didn't enjoy the idea of wearing a dead animal (leather not included despite the hypocrisy), but she would be lying if she said that Isabella didn't pull it off. Not to mention that her sister made it and it would simply be an insult to decline.

"Yeah! Everyone's looking great this evening," the Asian woman cut in.

The Vayne woman of course, retaliated with a petty jab of her own and in Vayne fashion just had to be class-related. She beckoned for Lisa to follow after and she was happy to do so, gripping her Moscato with vigor. She was more than happy to wine and flaunt herself, especially if it meant a distraction from Isabella and Hatch's...volatility.

They arrived in the kitchen, breaking out wine glasses and a corkscrew to finally get drinking. She had never been much of a party animal, preferring more intimate gatherings so getting slowly inundated (and tipsy) was the perfect way to unwind. Taking a long sip of Moscato, she perked up at Isabella's question regarding the recent death on campus.

"Yeah I did! Well I mean it was a tragedy, but I would be lying if I said it didn't interest," she answered, swirling her glass, "can imagine if there really is a cult here? What that would mean for Cascadia?"

All her theories and mystery chasing would finally come to fruition and she could be the first to report on it. Her major wouldn't be useless after all. Well it wouldn't be useless because she had connections within the industry anyway, but having a story to report meant more to her.

She pursed her lips for a second before taking another sip.

"You wouldn't happen to know anything about it would you?"

Isabella giggled to herself watching Lisa’s reaction and response to her bringing up the recent death on campus. She knew the girl’s major and assumed an event like this would peak her interest. “Cascadia is a college from a time long ago, you never know with places like this.” She quickly spoke in between listening to her current drinking companion and sipping the wine. Though she wasn’t expecting Lisa to ask to ask her if she knew anything about it. Obviously Bella wasn’t here when the death happened, so she wouldn’t be suspected, but she knew it wasn’t a question of Lisa interrogating her as a suspect. But her question was more so if she knew anything about it.

“Well hun, you know I come from a legacy of people coming to Cascadia, Vayne isn’t a shy name around the halls...” Bella said, swirling the glass of wine in her hand. “How about this little one, I’ll do a little bit of family digging, and if I find anything, you’ll be the first I tell.” She said with a smirk. Once again, not expecting herself to actually follow through with telling a mundane about the secrets of Cascadia and her own family, but it was fun to play around. Isabella quickly slowly sipped the rest of her drink and set the glass down next to the sink. “Anyways little Lisa, you know I need to make more face around the party. Go enjoy yourself, and thank you for the wine and the words.” She gave the woman a smile before leaving the room.

Bella saw many other friends and acquaintances as she walked through the next room. As she scanned the room, her eyes landed on a group of friends from before the break that she also saw at her families recent gala. A wicked smile came across Isabella’s face as she began making her way over towards them, ready to indulge in some recent gossip, and maybe even hear a bit more of the recent tragedy that struck Cascadia. But as she passed by a group of people in a circle minding her own business, Isabella quickly felt a fluid splash against her face and over her outfit.

“What… the fuck….” Words slowly left Isabella’s lips as she looked down at her now drenched dress. While it would come off easily with a spell from one of her friends, right now it looked ruined and stained. Her head turned to see where the drink came from and her eyes settled on a man with a now empty cup. Isaac Fox. Isabella usually didn’t like people making mistakes as it was a small pet peeve of hers and she would normally have some words with said person, but since it was Isaac Fox out of all people, the man who took it upon himself to be on a Vayne’s good side, Isabella wasn’t going to have any of it. A few moments of silence passed before she reacted.

Isabella wasn’t sure if it was the look in her eyes, or someone’s gut feeling came into play, but as she stepped forward, someone stepped in front of her starting to hold her back. “Really? Going to throw a drink on me and just stand there?” She asked rhetorically trying to push past whoever was holding her back, quickly seeing it was Hatch. “Let me go right now Hatch, this sexist mundane pig needs to be taught a lesson.” She said out loud, glaring back at Isaac.
