Stefan has always absolutely loathed his ability. He's seen himself as abnormal, a freak who shouldn't exist. His outlook has gotten better since he joined the circus, but his opinion of himself hasn't completely gone away, and he's erected a massive wall to hide how he really feels. He's always afraid that he'll open up to somebody, and they'll reject him because he's different. He has a cocky exterior, a big mouth, and an 'I don't care' attitude to protect himself from getting hurt. He's also a terrible flirt, and hits on almost everyone he meets.

He doesn't really get angry often, except when he feels hurt or betrayed, then he'll lash out at the party responsible. He's very open minded and doesn't dislike people very often, but on the occasion someone does something he really doesn't like, he can hold a grudge indefinitely. Despite his 'I'm a badass' attitude, he does care about people, and generally doesn't like it when other people are hurt or upset. He's always willing to lend a shoulder to cry on, though he may not be able to offer much helpful advice. He's a bigtime party-boy, and loves to spend his time drinking, doing drugs, and listening to music.

Stefan has pale white skin, piercing blue-gray eyes, and black as midnight shoulder length hair. He is tall at 6"4", and slim since he only weighs 150lbs. He wears a lot of heavy black makeup, and almost exclusively wears black clothes. He has a piercing in his nose, his lip, his nipple, and multiple piercings in both his ears, and he wears a lot of silver jewelry. He has tattoos on his arms, back, and chest. He walks with a confident gait he doesn't feel, and he tends to lean against something when he's standing up. He has a habit of smoking a cigarettes or weed.

Being a former prostitute, Stefan has slept with both men and women. He is sexually and romantically attracted to women, but has no problem sleeping with men to blow off some steam or to make a buck. He sees sex as just a fun activity or a business transaction, so he would pretty much sleep with anyone he didn't dislike, and doesn't see it as a loving act, so he doesn't really see the point of monogamy. He's never been in an actual loving relationship with someone outside of his family that wasn't just about sex. There's a rumor going around that he has incestuous relations with his sister, but he gets very mad someone brings it up in his presence.

Stefan was born in Bucharest, the capitol of Romania. His mother was a prostitute, so he never met his father, or even knew who he was. Him, his mother, and his older half sister Vanda lived in poverty, always one step away from being homeless. When he actually bothered to go to school, the other boys would bully him, and sometimes were physically violent. He often had to go to the doctor to set a broken bone, to the point now he's broken half the bones in his body. He discovered his ability of fire manipulation at age ten, when a classmate had a lighter and set his clothes on fire. When Stefan tried to stamp out the fire with his hands, the fire moved from his body to the other boy's, and the boy's clothes went up in flames. The classmate had to be sent to the hospital to be treated for severe burns. This discovery only his opinion of himself to go down. He was a freak.

He was fifteen when his sister left home to become a rich man's mistress. His mother had recently been beat in the back by a client that she had lost the use of her legs. She was unable to continue her work, and even though Vanda sent money home to help, it was not enough. Stefan had to take up the family business. To supplement his earnings, he also became a street performer, eating fire and making flames dance for an excited audience. Five years later, he reunited with his sister, who wanted to get him out of the body selling life. She contacted the Ringmaster of the Cirque de'La Rosa and told her about her brother's ability, in hopes of giving him a better life. He was reluctant at first, because he didn't want to leave his mother, but she died not long after. With nothing else to keep him in his home, he joined the Cirque de'La Rosa with his sister.

Lola sighed and picked at her nails. She was leaning on one of the tent support poles watching the freaks all put in their last minute rehearsals for tonight. Lola was wearing tight black jeans and what was practically a black bra with extra straps attached. She narrowed her eyes as she saw the same performer forget her move for the fourth time in a row. The Circus had been in town for the last 10 days which the roadies had spent setting up the tent and infrastructure. So of course that meant the performing freaks had waited to the last minute to rehearse their performances.

"How are we looking for tonight?"

Lola forced herself not to jump in surprise. The Ringmaster was always very good at sneaking up on people and appearing behind you without you noticing. Lola would never get used to it. Without turning around, she replied, "Yeah. They've finished setting up. We have a fully booked show tonight and your freaks should be able to pull it together by then."


"We have a few VIPs coming tonight as well, so things better go well." The Ringmaster said sternly before soundlessly turning and leaving. They didn't even look over the performers rehearsing. The Ringmaster entrusted the running of the show to Lola, and they'd only step in after the show went badly.

Lola sighed after the Ringmaster left. As much disdain as she felt for the freaks, she couldn't just ignore them like she wanted. If they did badly tonight it was her ass on the line. The Ringmaster would blame her for anyone's failings. Then one of the acrobats fell and hit the cushioned mat they had laid down for rehearsals hard. Crossing her arms angrily, Lola took a few step into the center ring of the circus tent. "Get it together freaks!"
She yelled out to the entire group making it quite clear she was fed up with them. Then she turned and left the main tent.

Lola entered the showgirls van. Every surface and wall space was covered in costumes, mirrors, wigs, makeup and glitter. Of course at the far end of the van there was the largest cleanest mirror, that had lights around it. That was Lola's mirror. She made sure none of the other showgirls dared use it.

Currently the van was empty, but the other girls would be coming soon to get ready. Lola sat down in front of her mirror and started applying another layer of makeup. Of course she was never seen around the circus without thick makeup on. "Lunch." Aubrey entered the van holding a tray of sandwiches cut into triangles. Lola scowled. Aubrey was 13. She didn't have an oddity and was too young to be a showgirl. So she did the same things Lola used to; giving out sandwiches, cleaning, passing message around etc. The way Aubrey was eyeing up the showgirl costumes and glitter reminded Lola of her younger self.

If her heart wasn't so frozen over she might have felt pity for the young girl. Caught in a venomous trap but too starstruck to see it. All Lola felt was bitter though, soon Aubrey would be old enough to become a showgirl and she'd be young and youthful whilst Lola found herself getting older and older. When would she be too old and end up being replaced by a younger girl?

"Leave." Lola demanded after taking a sandwich half. She took a bite and threw the rest in the bin. She had a bmi she had to keep too. She couldn't control her age but she could control her weight. Sighing she sat down and started prodding at her face. She had age lines she hadn't seen on her face only a year before.
