Image | Personality |
"Wait a second. You want me to describe myself? Having known me for this long you can't find it in you to describe me yourself? And you have the nerve to call me lazy?! The next..." Ahem. Let's just skip to the part where she actually gets to the description, yes? "...One word to describe myself? Well...let's see. The first word that comes to mind is... flamboyant! Call me coincided, but I'd say I'm brilliant! Listen, if you're going to hear about me the first thing you should know is that words mean absolutely nothing. Have you ever thought about the meanings of 'matter'? Well... if it's not matter, then it doesn't really matter, right? That's how I see it. Kind of like love- love is weird, love is merciless, and love just ends up ripping your heart out in the end. In some cases, literally... That's one of many reasons why love doesn't matter. Nothing out there is going to change my opinion."

That last sentence is an example of Arabella's stubbornness. She isn't won over by powerful or fancy words. If you're going to persuade her, the only way to do it is with action. Of course, if it's a petty matter like getting out of bed, a bit of badgering will do the trick. "Wait a second! Since when did you have the nerve to interrupt me? AHEM! Anyway, before I was rudely interrupted, where was I?" Let's save some time and skip to the point. She's a lazy procrastinator who's clumsy, doesn't believe in love, is impulsive, doesn't really have consideration for anyone else's feelings, and is someone who has an extraordinary ability to talk back and get on people's nerves. But even though she has some major flaws, she doesn't fail to admit them. But she doesn't bother to fix them, either. "What can I say? I am who I am, and who cares what other people say? I am spectacular!"

It's hard to classify certain traits under good and bad. She has high self-esteem and insults don't get to her, but she doesn't take the time to fix what others would call "flaws". "If they have a problem with me, that is too bad for them, because I do not change for people. I don't want to fit it. I want to be alone. Being alone is nice, it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, okay? I'll admit that I'm not what everyone would consider perfect and tolerable- in fact, I'm far from it. But do I care? NO! TOO BAD! I'm me, and I am brilliant, all quirks included!" Did I mention she's a bit of a troublemaker? Right- she doesn't go out of her way to break rules, nor does she mind breaking them. Well, until she's caught. "If I'm caught," That's another thing. The only way to teach her something like a rule or to not mess with someone is through experience. Only through bad experience will she think to back off or behave. In fact, until dealing with something or someone personally will she know her limits. Due to her high self-esteem, sometimes she may start to talk big and underestimate other's powers... "I have a slight feeling that you're underestimating ME," Yeah... you just go ahead and think that.

Now, even though Arabella may seem to not care about other people, she still values their presence and wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice her own life for theirs. You could say her selflessness is one of many good traits. "Yes... because people think I'm so loveable, am I right?" Oh yeah- she's also quite sarcastic. It's one of her lesser features, if you ask me... "My sarcasm is the main thing that makes me so cherished, don't you know?" But fortunately, Arabella knows the difference between casual and serious, so she knows when to shut the sarcasm and insults down. Unless of course, you insult her first. Then it's basically relentless as long as you stay in her sights- in other words, you can just walk away if you want her to stop talking to you. Laziness will take its turn and she won't feel the need to follow you and ramble on about petty flaws.



| Strengths |
- Even though she has some negative thoughts inside, she does well when it comes to staying calm on the outside and at least seeming to be optimistic.
- Insults do not cut deep. Rude remarks with hurtful intentions do not depress or worry Arabella. She's used to it, and she likes being a loner. Of course, insults still irritate her, but only for about five seconds, ten minutes at the most. In other words, her self-esteem is quite high, yet she does not have a big head- even though it may seem that way at times.
- Her determination. No matter what the circumstances, if Arabella is passionate about her goal, she will move forth and will stop at nothing- as long as she isn't putting others in danger without them knowing or being willing to work through the sweat/pain and misfortune.
- Her selflessness. Despite what she says to someone, through her actions she shows her care for almost everyone around her. As long as you're not a sworn enemy, she will not hesitate to willingly sacrifice her life for yours.
- Her bold personality- basically, her failure to be shy.
- Extremely high self-esteem. Sometimes, she can be mistaken for having a big head. But even though she thinks highly of herself, that does not affect her willingness to improve... though, what some call laziness might.
- Arabella is swift and sneaky. She does well when it comes to stealth or passing an enemy without their noticing.

| Weaknesses |
- Her amazing ability to make enemies. Most are not fond of Arabella's tendency to talk back, make sarcastic remarks, and insult others without a problem.
- Talking back. She almost never hesitates to throw out a sarcastic remark.
- She does not know her limits. In other words, she doesn't exactly realize how much danger or trouble she could be in due to certain actions, and she sometimes fails to realize the limitations of her powers. The only way for her to realize this is experience alone.
- Her independence. She doesn't like having others help, whether it be help in battle or help dealing with emotional problems.
- She is clumsy. There is no other way to put it. If you don't want your clothes dropped in a puddle, don't ask her to carry them. Then again, it's not just clumsiness that will get your possessions dropped- that is, if Arabella isn't particularly fond of you...
- Her selflessness. At times, she puts other's lives above her own.
- She has extreme difficulties opening up to people, and admitting feelings of sorrow, depression or regret. To be able to sit down and have an open and meaningful talk without witty remarks and snappy comebacks with Arabella is unheard of, and if such a thing ever happens, it shows how much trust she has in said person.
- Arabella tends to procrastinate and will make excuses to avoid training or work due mostly to laziness. Though, with enough badgering, she will eventually get on her feet.
-When it comes to physical combat, to be blunt, she's terrible. Why don't we leave it at that?

| Fears |
- Philophobia; the fear of love.
- Pyrophobia; the fear of fire.
- Algophobia; the fear of pain.

| Power |
Arabella is able to manipulate dimensions. Well, she is capable of dimensional manipulation. No one said she knows how to, or actually can use her powers. At the time being, all she can really manage is to teleport your coffee cup into a different dimension and hope some 2-D gentleman gets the same coffee dumped on his head. Her power involves making portals that lead to different dimensions, traveling through the portals, teleporting even, and more. At the moment, she can only keep the portals open for so long, and traveling through various dimensions has rather unappealing side effects, such as nausea and dizziness. These side effects can last from two measly minutes to a miserable two weeks. It depends on pure luck. But over time, as she gets used to different dimensions, those side effects will fade. If Arabella pushes her powers too far, she will faint.

| Quirks |
- Arabella almost always wears a sly smile.
- She sometimes dozes off, and lets her mind wander while usually tuning out who ever was talking in the first place.

| Hobbies |
- Drawing. She's actually quite talented at it. (Drawing dragons especially.)
- Soccer (football - non-American). Her abilities when it comes to soccer are average, though she can run quite fast.

So begins...

#, as written by Sonohra

Jeremiah woke up to see his campers sleeping in their beds. His bed was a double bed and in the center of the cabin. The rest were single bunk beds, lined against the walls. He got up quietly, made his bed and left the cabin. It was 6:15 am. The sun was coming up, but it was cold and brisk. Jer looked at the other cabins, and walked bare-foot to the cafeteria, where he would help the cooks prepare breakfast for the campers. Everyone was allowed to sleep in till 7. Breakfast was served at 7:30 and cleaned up by 8:30. When his morning duties were finished, he headed back to his cabin to wake everyone up.

The closest bed was Finnian's. He shook his shoulder gently and said, "Time to wake up, buddy." He moved onto James, Ross, and Arabella, and did the same before moving to his dresser and taking off his sweatpants. He knew that undressing in front of the campers was not a good idea, but he had no real choice. It was either that or go to the outhouse to change. Jeremiah never felt like it, so he always changed in the cabin. "Come on, kids. Time to wake up~"

Amira β€˜Red’ Devaroh

Amira was up by 5:35 am. Meditation passed the half an hour or so she had to kill. Even though she had been at camp for several years she did not leave the cabin until 6:00 am on the dot. Better to not piss off Jeremiah on the first day back. Dressed in black shorts, a white tank, and grey running shoes with her hair pulled up she headed out on her morning jog. She had been cutting out this path in the woods for three years now. She knew where every fallen log, every rocky ledge, and every vine infested part of the trail was. She could almost run her path with her eyes closed. She took deep even breaths as she picked up her pace, sweat beading on her forehead. She spotted her old cedar tree with a slight indent in the middle and grinned. This is where her trail got fun. About a year and a half back she had started picking up parkour...and now she incorporated it into her run every morning. She ran up the tree, using her momentum she pushed off the center indent and grabbed a branch, swung around twice Olympic style and landed on another branch. She felt it bow under her weight and sighed.

"Couldn't have gained that much..." She grumbled to herself as she shot forward jumping for another branch, then swinging from another. She loved her morning run and was fairly proud of her athletic abilities. After a half an hour of branch bouncing she landed lightly on the ground and continued on her run.

Amira only stopped her run for one thing, the relatively large creek a little further than halfway through her run. She paused long enough to wash herself down in the stream, braid her hair and catch her breath....and then she was off again. When she got to the end of her route, at the edge of camp, she started her cool down stretches.

Checking her watch she smiled. It was only 7:00 am. A new record for her.

Amira spotted Jeremiah and waved but didn't bother trying to make conversation. He was busy and she wasn't much of a talker in the her opinion, it would be a perfect world if everyone only hugged and drank coffee before 10:00 am.

Amira finished her stretches and went to her cabin. She changed into a black Godsmack v neck tee, a pair of skinny jeans and her wedge boots and headed to the kitchen. She liked to help out in making the food when she could.

"Hey guys" She called to the staff. She got a warm welcome back of hugs and pats on the back before she started making breakfast with the rest of the staff.

Ross Reid

With a nudge to his shoulder Ross rolled his eyes awake with large yawn, kicking off his blankets and placing them under his legs all while rubbing his eyes and cracking his knuckles. A couple of minutes passed, figuring he should get up he let out a sigh while throwing his legs off of the bed and onto the floor. Mornings were not his strong suit, a schedule wasn't either and to be on a schedule where you had to be up by 7 was just awful. Ross did a slight jump to get the blood flowing and proceeded to change, or at least to a point. He changed out of tank top and into a white baseball shirt with grey sleeves he didn't bother to change out of his red plaid pajama bottoms and slipped on an old pair of skate shoes.

Stepping outside gave him a slight chill but it was nothing too extreme. Shrugging it off he made his way to the cafeteria, there wasn't many people around that he could see but not everyone immediately goes for the where they keep the food as soon as they wake up, he may be smaller be he can pile food away. When he got to the cafeteria he tripped inside, catching onto a chair before he slowly let himself slide to the ground. "Good job Ross." he murmured getting back to his feet. Shaking his head he couldn't help but laugh at himself and with a smile on his face he grabbed an orange and sat in a chair closest to the wall with his feet up on another waiting for everything to be ready.
