Description

Maritza Eldoris Geneva


ImageImage
Age: 17

Race: Sea People

Sex: Female

Appearance: Maritza has long red hair and pale skin that shines like diamonds when the sun hits it just right. Her eyes are the color of the ocean. She is only 5’0” and weight at about 95 pounds. She wears a pair of white feathers in her hair that her grandmother gave her. Her type of clothing is always the same, a blue and white school uniform with white knee high socks and brown shoes. On her right wrist is a blue scrunchy.

Personality: Maritza is pretty much a happy girl. She is sweet to people and you can always find her with a smile plastered on her face. She refuses to let anyone know that she is actually depressed. Her philosophy is that if she can make others happy, then Maritza herself will be happy. One of her best qualities is her determination no matter how big the obstacle.

Sometimes she cries in a corner away from people if the stress and depression gets too bad. Her anxiety can get to the point where she can’t breathe. She fears that is she doesn’t make others happy they will leave her. She fears being alone. Maritza also fears tall aggressive looking men, she doesn’t remember why or how this fear came to be.

Abilities: Maritza can breathe under water and as well as on land. She has figured out that she can control any water that is around. She also can sense when someone is down, but there are side effect to it. For example, if she senses someone is sad, she gets sad.

Equipment: Her feathers in Nod can transform into two very large birds. One bird can shoot water from his mouth whereas the other can shoot fire. The scrunchy on her arm can stretch out into a sword.

History Overview: Maritza is from a small fishing village by the ocean. Her father was a fisherman and mother the owner of the local grocery store. Since she was young she would wake up early just so she could stare at the ocean before school. She always dreamed of being able to breathe under the water.
School life was great, she had many friends, but the stress from her parents to get good grades could take its toll on her. They wanted her to go to college so she could have a better life than her parents. If only they knew she never wanted to leave the sea. Now in her senior year she studies biology and the sea creatures that live in the ocean next to her.

The sound of bubbles woke Maritza from her sleep. Eyes still closed she stretched and slowly came back to the position she was in before opening her eyes. She froze as she floated in her spot. W-Where am I? She thought. Looking around she saw fish swimming around her, minding their own business. It took her a few more seconds to realize where she was. Why am I under water?! Why am I not dead? How am I…breathing? She asked no one really. She swam easily around, breathing like normal, and laughed. I must be dreaming. Her hands gently glided through the water as she notice bubbles would form where her hand once was. She could stay in this water world for hours, but her curiosity got the better of her.

Her body rolled and thrusted upwards towards the surface. Maritza couldn’t get over the simplicity of swimming and breathing underwater. Whatever dream this was she never wanted to wake up. As soon as she came up from under the water her head started to ache and she felt nauseated. Quickly, she sunk back down into the water, but it didn’t help. Maybe I need to eat, she thought as she saw to land. Once out and the pain receding, she took notice she was not in the ocean, but a lake. The waters were crystal clear and you could see straight to the bottom. Her eyes drifted to the surface’s scenery and was taken aback by its own beauty.

The trees were all different colors, not like fall colors, but like those fluffy trees in The Lorax colors. The grass that surrounded her was not green, like regular grass. In fact nothing was at all the right color. She looked down at her clothes and noticed everything was dry. It hadn’t even been five minutes and it wasn’t like it was scorching hot. Either way she needed to find food to calm her stomach. Twirling around she tried to see if there was a path leading away. To no such luck. Guess I am making my own path, she muttered to herself.

Maritza walked passed the trees, running her hands along their trunks. Some were rough, but other’s was smooth. She had no idea she could dream up something like this. The farther away from the lake she got the more she could see of the weird shaped buildings. Something was glowing in the sun, passed a few of the buildings. Not thinking, Maritza kept walking, never looking down to where she was going. Before long she tripped over what looked like a sea slug, but it was much larger and kept turning different colors. She was about to scream, but notice the slug paid no mind to her. It was like she hadn’t even been there.

It is just a dream, remember. She told herself before standing up and dusting herself off. She kept going in the direction she was originally going. Maritza wanted to find out what was glowing. Food had escaped her mind and was of no bother to her at this point.

It seemed to be taken forever to get out the forest. Maritza could still see the glow up ahead, but now she was hearing voices. They were distant and faint, but never the less voices. She hesitated, I wonder if they are nice people? Do they not see the shinning between the weird looking buildings? She thought. Pushing her hair behind her ears she sat against a tree trunk to rest. Maritza had no idea how long she had been walking, but it seemed like a really long time.

She went to tie her hair with her scrunchy, pulling it over her hand, when it started to glow. W-What the... now in her hand was a sword. It was almost the color of the lake, but had pigments of a darker blue. It was lite in her hand. This sword has to be as tall as me! How is it so lite?! She almost screamed at it. Standing up, while having the sword at a good distance away from herself, she measured its height against her own height. It was only a few inches taller than her. She grabbed the sword with her other hand and swung. It was clear she looked awkward doing so. Now how do I get it back to my scrunchy? She thought.

Maritza tapped her wrist with the sword and it transformed back to the scrunchy. Ha! She was glad it was a simple way. Now that she knew she had a weapon she headed toward the voices, hoping they were nice.

"Thanks for the information Rick, although this means that someone or something dragged us to this land...or somehow we are having the same lucid dream together."

The possibility that either they were dreaming or were somehow abducted to this alien world hadn't slipped him by. They were fairly broad conclusions given the fact that logically if they didn't come here themselves they must of been brought somehow. He too had also considered the idea that it might of been a dream. He had dismissed the notion since if it were a dream it wouldn't make nearly as much sense as it did already.

"There is a third option." He proposed. "We could be dead."


It was an eerie thought but not entirely impossible. He let the proposal hang in the air for the while for consideration while he forged onward. It was not long before they reached the riverbank, walking amongst the strange ruins of what was and what might of been. With utter ease he leapt up onto the peak of one such building in a series of short hops from platform to platform. High up he could pick up the trace sounds of others, voices out in the forest carrying in what sounded like a busy conversation.

"Hey Lyn, think we aren't the only ones around these parts. Think they're like us or might they got some answers we don't have?"

He pointed in the direction he roughly believed the voices to be coming from. Much closer however was a lone voice, that of a girl. From his vantage he could see a red haired girl brandishing a blade about the same height as her. More new faces to greet.


"Ahoy there!" He waved, calling out to youthful one far out in the woods. Before he could go down and bid welcome to her the clocktower chimed, the echoing ring which carried across the island cutting right through his train of thought. As if in answer to the call of the chiming a number of roots from the shimmering tree reached out to grasp their island, connecting them to it. These roots flattened, changed and morphed, forming rails and some form of entrance complete with an arch with a banner. Upon the banner there was something written but he couldn't quite read it as it was a bit far from his location.

Needless to say his curiosity was eager like a dog towards a steak. Leaping from the top of the ruin he fell and landed neatly in the earthen floor, leaving very little indent from the impact. Not sparing a moment he broke into a long stride, powerwalking over to where he saw the bridge. He had almost completely forgotton about his previous company. He was reminded of her when he neared the red haired girl who stood between him and the bridge. Looking back he checked to see if she was still in tow.

"Hey Lyn, If that bridge isn't a clear path to something interesting I don't know what is." He spoke in case she was still listening.

As Lyn followed Rick to head to the clock tower he told her about, he made one startling and unnerving proposal about their situation. "There is a third option. We could be dead." With those words, Lyn looked at Rick surprised for a second but quickly came to her senses. "Well that is a possibility as well. Jeeze, for a guy who try's to joke around, you sure can come up with some grim conclusions. But if that is true then the afterlife certainly is strange...very strange indeed." She laughed it off and continued to walk forward until they reached the riverbank and began to walk among the ruins of past things that was once standing.

Watching as Rick began to platform hop to the peak of one of these building, Lyn followed suit by climbing the structure with ease making use of the many cracks as a foothold before pulling herself up to the peak of the building. Once she was on top on the building she also heard the sounds of voices, by the sound of it it seemed that there were more people and more specifically they were not far away although she was not sure where the voices came from. Rick soon spoke up. "Hey Lyn, think we aren't the only ones around these parts. Think they're like us or might they got some answers we don't have?" Lyn turned to face him before speaking. "No clue, for all I know they could be walking candy with all I have seen so far. But we just gotta hope they are friendly and that maybe they know what is going on here." She spoke before looking in the direction Rick was pointing in and saw a woman with red hair, and she was not made of candy. "Ok we can safely rule out candy people..."


Before Lyn could say something, Rick called out to the woman and shorty afterwards the clock tower began to ring with an unusually loud tone. What followed the ringing was the roots of the large white tree isolated on another floating island began to coil and roll outwards, anchoring themselves to other islands. What made this sight even more stranger than it needed to be, the roots began to flatten out into elaborate bridge-like constructs with guard rails to prevent people from falling off the edge. Finally to top it all off the entrance of the bridge was decorated with a party banner draped with confetti along. She could not see the words since she was too far away however she knew that that the banners were party banners making her come up with a strange proposal. "Did this place, expect us to come?" She muttered the words.

Of course there was no time to stand around confused and thinking about the bride, as soon as Lyn saw Rick leap of the building, she followed by doing a front flip off the building and landing perfectly on her feet, years in her schools cheer leading group did that for you, of course she made sure not to let her parents know she was doing something rather dangerous. She then began to slowly walk over to the group while waving. "Hello! Pleaed to meet you, names Lyn. And Rick, when one sees a bridge draped with a party banner of course it leads to something special. Maybe we can get some answers." Lyn called out to the two eventually taking her spot a few feet away from the others.
