Annie Stark

"I will still stand."

0 · 165 views · located in Gar

a character in “The Branded”, as played by Ang-cat

Description

Name: Annie

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Race: Half-human, half-dark elf

Personality: From a young age, Annie has had a talent for finding trouble. And trouble she has embraced. Although she is a bit naive at times, and more unknowledgable about the world than she is willing to admit, she has a warm heart and a curious, adventurous nature. However, she sometimes has a sudden propensity for dark and twisted things, which seem to come and go without her will.

Appearance: Annie is short, with a lithe frame. She has long hair that seems darker than black. The mixture of her parents' backgrounds have given her tan skin and near-black eyes. She partially wears her Garthian military uniform. The straps of the baggy grey trousers fall to her waist, leaving her shirt exposed. She wears her greaves, but not the gauntlets. In addition, she carries a small black satchel across her body.

Brand's Appearance: Her brand is a peculiar image of both a sun and moon extending thinly across the right side of her torso and waist.

Brand's Effects: She can sing so beautifully a person becomes dazed. Though this distracts opponents, it also leaves her open to attack, meaning that when alone, it is a useless skill.

Alternate Form: A black cat with silver eyes. Though this seems rather ordinary (and at times weak), she can vary in sizes, from a kitten to a tiger. However, she cannot change colour.

Weapon(s): Annie uses a bow, but the arrows are manifestations of elements, rather than tangible things.

Magic: Her brand gives her the power to manipulate the elements. However, Annie is yet to master these skills and they are controlled by her emotions. This makes her a hazard at times.

History: Annie was born into a wealthy home in Gar. Her mother, a busy human, she saw little of, and she had never known her father. Eventually, it was easy enough for Annie to recognize that with the mysterious traits she possessed, it only made sense for her father to be a dark elf. Because Annie had seen few in her life, and known even fewer, it lead Annie to speculate that her father wasn't from Gar at all. In fact, due to her mother's ever-altruistic nature, her own unexplainable streaks of her cruelty seemed to be attributable to her father. She and her two younger, twin siblings were subjected to constant lessons in a wide variety of subjects from combat to calligraphy.

As a child, she was bullied by her schoolmates for her strange behavior and powers, which sometimes harmed them, but she learned to stand up for herself.

However one day, in town, she had realized her two siblings had gone missing. Searching everywhere, she eventually came upon a street intersection where a man stood with a knife. Annie came just in time to see her sister clinging behind a man in a military outifit, and her brother's throat being slit open. To this day she blames herself for not looking over them more carefully. Too ashamed and afraid to return home, she walked her sister home while her mother was out. Gathering up what she needed, she left home forever and wandered for a short time before deciding to join the military in an effort to become stronger, and perhaps someday find and thank the man who saved her sister.

Annie is a nickname, but she refuses to tell anyone her full name.

So begins...

Lucius watched the cart hurtle away down the dirt and gravel path, leaving the soldiers alone on the moors. Lucius had been given the map of the moors by Colonel Sanderson, which was now in his pocket. Lucius removed the map from his pocket and unfolded it. It was a crumpled, A3 piece of papyrus with the layout of the moor drawn on it. There were 4 points marked onto the map, a now deserted hamlet that was slightly to the north, a tarn to the northwest, a valley to the east and a cave to the northeast. Lucius wondered how long it would take to go round them all. It was obvious that their first destination should be the hamlet that had supposedly been destroyed by monsters. But before anything else, he should introduce himself to the group, they would need to work as a team, and wouldn't be able to if they didn't know each other.
"I don't believe that I have introduced myself yet." Lucius announced to the group, "My name is Lucius Silver, son of the late Sebastian Silver. And what about the rest of you? If we're going to be working together, we should know who we're working with."

"Oh for Luna's sake..." the Serpent scowled as he attempted to get the door to budge, but to no avail.
However, after another few seconds he managed to ram the door down with his shoulder. He stepped into the ransacked cottage, surveying the scene that the monsters had left. Blood was spattered everywhere, the furniture was smashed to smithereens and the walls had multiple holes in them. The Serpent inspected the blood, it had separated some time ago. The house had an attic, so it shouldn't be to hard to hide and wait for the soldiers.
"Right you lot, get in the attic and seal the door shut. I'll make sure the soldiers go where they're supposed to go. You four watch out of the window and make sure you're not seen. If they realise it's a trap or see you, knock them out, kidnap one of them and take him or her to the cave. I'll leave them a message so they know what to do. However, I don't want that happening so make sure to monitor their behaviour at all times. And remember, DON'T kill them!"
With that, the Serpent opened the hatch leading to the attic and pulled down the ladder, gesturing for them to climb up.

Having spent the greater portion of his journey to the moor via a cart, Leyawin was more than happy enough to finally arrive at their destination. Stepping off the cart with the unmistakable ache of having sat in one spot for too long, he immediately threw out his arms in a stretch. Following this he began to survey the area. It was quiet, at least… Whether that was a good thing or not had yet to be determined. Monster sightings… the first real mission he was assigned as a soldier for Gar. A short pause followed before one of his comrades spoke. He introduced himself as Lucius, providing a small amount of detail about himself in the process. It was what he said after his introduction that interested Leyawin, however. I suppose he’s right… Leyawin thought. In order to properly function as a group it’d be better to know a bit more about eachother…

“… Leyawin de Geldor of the Geldor Family of Elevar.” He spoke elegantly but without arrogance. After all, he may have pride in his lineage but he was raised to hold equal respect for all creatures.

Annie had jumped off of the cart even before it had come to a full stop, though she landed gracefully and silently on the dirt. She stood cautiously for only a moment before straightening herself. The girl was young, and looked even younger, and this only added to how eager she seemed. Finally, a chance to prove herself, a chance for real adventure! No more dealing with these common street criminals; real monsters.

"A Geldor?" she said, though not harshly. She took a moment to observe the Leyawin and then continued on, "My name's Annie. Nice to meet the team!" she chimed in her high, honey-like voice, seeming untouched by the sheer seriousness and formality of the situation. Not always, but on occasion, there were whispers and unfounded gossip that sometimes accompanied her family name. She did not intend to take that chance and set that off.

She observed the other soldiers with her, her eyes flickering from detail to detail, person to person, taking in their faces. Some of their faces seemed vaguely familiar, as if she had known them long ago, but she knew this couldn't be right. She pulled her bow from her back and held it in her left hand, letting her hand find the position it had been in, so many times before.

Calmly pushing himself off of the cart as it came to a complete stop, taking in the atmosphere gazing at the many people passing distracted by the look of the town he had just arrived in. Reflecting back to when he was assigned to the mission, "killing monsters... just like killing stronger bandits" were the words he spoke to his comanding officer with a grin clasping his hand on the mans shoulder laughing as he departed. But it was for real Leon would be sent with new comrades to finish off a group of monsters sighted, shaking off the feeling as the blond haired man spoke. "My name is Lucius Silver, son of the late Sebastian Silver. And what about the rest of you? If we're going to be working together, we should know who we're working with." I suppose I should introduce myself Leon said to himself but was quickly cut off by Elf when he spoke. "This must be serious" again Leons thoughts flashed, and with the apparince of a Geldor he was alarmed with the severity of the task at hand. Composing his mind while another introduced herself as Annie, dropping all formalities with her tone and speech.

"Well then it is ample time to introduce myself, I am Leon Kenro Parthos. Son of the departed Dracus Parthos." Leon spoke clenching his teeth a bit as he spoke of his fathers name and with a shake of the head he continued "It is nice to meet all of you and may our mission go well." and with a smile he reached his hand out to Leyawin greeting the elf with respect.

Annie's energy seemed to seep into the air; contagious. She fidgeted, shifting her weight from left to right, and then back to left soon after. It was this warmth; she loved the sun. It was probably what made her like this, like her emotions came and went with the wind and the rain and the dirt and the moon. Now and then, it seemed somewhat ill-fitting in this environment.

"Well then... Shall we maybe look around?" she asked her comrades.

They didn't seem to fit each other either. Their hair; tangles and curls of blonde, black, or silver, long or short, slid through the cooling breeze. Their faces, heights, backgrounds, even the way they wore their uniforms, all denoted a ragged band of strangers more than a tight knit group of soldiers. No, communication wasn't there strong suit, it seemed, and as far as being on the same level as each other, they had a long way to go.

She slid her right shoulder out of her uniform overalls, switched her bow hand temporarily, and then slid her left shoulder out as well. The two straps fell to her hips; apparently, as over-sized as the overalls seemed, the slack picked up at the waist, tight enough to keep it there.

It was the hamlet that interested Annie the most.
