{ PERSONALITY/ATTITUDE }
Neva is generally a private person, but this does not mean she is quiet in any way. In the kitchen she is commanding but understanding, and always works hard to make sure everything works smoothly and is produced well. Her home life is tense, so she spends much of her time outside of her home with friends and colleagues. She is rarely afraid to confront those in higher power, but is also a good judge of character and moods, and s she chooses her rebellions carefully. she is extremely person-based and makes sure to help those who need it while sharing little about herself unless it is to get her point across.Neva very clearly believes in equality, and is outspoken about her support of other women, which has gotten her in trouble many a time, but she is not unpleasant unless you cross her and is in general a lively and intriguing spirit.

{ HISTORY }
The Guryanov family lived in Russia for the past millennia, but when disaster struck and the family home was burnt to the ground in a pogrom, the young head of the household, forced into their leadership role by the sudden deaths of the elders of the family, moved the family over to the prosperous and safer London. What they did not realize, was that the relative wealth they held in Russia did nit translate to the London economy, and they were stuck living in a poor immigrant neighborhood, struggling to survive. They sent their eldest daughter, Neva, off to school with an English last name, but she soon returned after several years to help her mother take care of the family after the sudden illness and death of her father. The family owned a tiny bakery that made very little from the immigrants who lived nearby.
Neva's mother, Masha turned the bakery over to her daughter and son when she realized her daughter's talent for cooking and her son's talent for business, but this was still not enough. In desperation she turned to her constant business son street corners which had helped to support them when they first arrived in the new country. In her anger and desperation she was often overbearing and cruel to her eldest daughter, and Neva had enough when her mother, delusional from drugs she got as payment from a customer, tried to force her into the trade. Neva ran, and found work as a cook in a wealthy neighborhood, and although she is estranged, she still sends money back to her family to help them survive. She also just happened to inherit the family demon servant, and has no idea how to handle him.
