Leaf Sima

A touch is all it takes.

0 · 343 views · located in The Infinite Void

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Arrow

Description

ImageAlias: Leaf Sima
Age: 17, 896
Race: Devourer
Significant Relations: N/A

Physical Description: Small, frail and unassuming, Leaf's form of choice is a petite and girlish in appearance. Pale skinned and fair haired, Leaf is pretty if not glamorous or beautiful - many Devourers choose to take forms that are stunningly beautiful, but Leaf finds that people are often more suspicious of such shapes than they are of less exaggeratedly attractive individuals. A pair of soft green eyes are framed by mid-length hair generally tied into a ponytail.

Personality: Truly, Leaf is an almost emotionless, cold creature with little regard for others - however, she maintains a persona of a meek but friendly young politics student, with a passion for photography and an aptitude for debate.

Skills and Talents:
  • Whatever suits the occasion. Generally unpractised at most tasks, but able to perform them.

Abilities:
Shapeshifting: Devourers are masters of deceit, able to alter every aspect of their being right down to the genetic code in order to seem exactly what their target wants.
Assimilation: The way in which a devourer prolongs its life is by absorbing living beings, body and all, converting them into devourers, and taking their remaining life force into them. This does not mean that absorbing an immortal makes them immortal, but obviously immortals are priority targets. They tend to be high risk, however.
Memory Tap: With skin contact with another being's forehead, Leaf can download their memories in order to imitate them or a figure from their life.
Weeping Shadow: If Leaf comes into contact with another at a level of intimacy such as kissing or sex, or even if she contacts an open wound or other orifice with a similarly internal part of her body by other means, she can cause an unnatural poison to fill the person's body. Largely symptomless, the first sign after a minute or two is weeping a black inky substance, followed by the entirety of the eye turning black. After another minute, all of the individual's orifices begin to seep this black substance, and death generally occurs four to five minutes after the initial poisoning.

Weapons:
  • Its own body, which can at whim become any manner of weapon, even the most complex of firearms.

So begins...

Leaf Sima slipped into the building quietly, and meekly, her eyes flickering back and forth nervously. She clutched an umbrella to her chest, a golden yellow in colour. Her dress was a flowery pink, and both items were decorated in flower patterns. The girl's hair was a beautiful glossy black, carefully bound up to above her neck.

The girl approached the counter hesitantly, and glanced around for a bartender. "Ah... hello? Is there someone here serving drinks?"

Leaf Sima sighed, daintily seating herself upon a barstool with a quietly resigned expression upon her face. The way in which she sat unfortunately caused the silk of her kimono to slip down her leg slightly, revealing far more flesh than was proper to any who happened to glance. Apparently frightfully embarrassed, Leaf reached down to pull the fabric back over to protect her modesty, flushing bright red.

"Oh dear... that's not a good start."

Leaf Sima sat quietly on a chair in the bar, sighing pitiably. She really was very lonely, and her body language suggested such, slightly hunched, peering at the wood of the chair and a sad frown on her face. "Oh, dear, I wish I were not so shy." she murmured, huffing.

The beautiful woman adjusted her position, exposing more thigh than was strictly proper from under the folds of her kimono, but seeming not to notice. A yellow umbrella leant against the wall beside her chair, and both it and the pink kimono were decorated with numerous flowers.

Leaf Sima was quite plainly unoccupied, sitting alone at a booth and glancing around the bar with subdued interest.

Leaf Sima popped his head up from behind the counter, having entered only a few minutes beforehand. "Hey." the 'vampire' said, waving a beer-clutching hand at Cloasse. "I am totally not raiding the fridge because people still think I work here."

Straightening, 'Fletcher' (for that was the form that the shapeshifter had assumed, right down to the genes) placed one of the bottles down on the counter top, sliding the other from left to right between his hands for a few moments. Looking up at the rune scrit, the 'vampire' grinned. "Beer?" he offered, "Why don't you drown your sorrows and tell me why you've suddenly started hating here enough to vocalise it? Normally you just look brooding and grumpy when you hang out here. Or is that me?"

"Aw, come on now." 'Fletcher' pouted, vaulting half-way over the counter to dangle his legs down. "Talk to Uncle Fletcher, tell him your troubles." It was hard to tell if the 'vampire' was being serious or slightly mocking, really. "I only charge two dollars a minute! It's a life changing service."

'Fletcher' flipped the cap off of his beer and took a gulp, before looking down at Cloasse. "Feels like an age since I was last here. Can't have been that long though, or I'd have missed my own wedding. A tempting prospect, don't get me wrong.."

'Fletcher' lifted an eyebrow. "Not a lot.. drifting around, trying to keep out of Gina's way. Seriously, you have no idea what bridezilla means till you've spent five minutes in the same room as her. I feel like I'm about to get my head cut off, say.. ninety percent of the time?"

The vampire leaned his head back to stare up at the ceiling, still swinging his legs below him. "It's like Gina times a hundred. Too many Ginas. I need some repellent.. Oh, but then, you'd know. You had to go shopping with her. Glad I dodged that bullet." Taking another gulp of beer, Fletcher addressed the rune scrit again without looking to her.

"How'd you end up in space, anyway?"

"Whoa." Fletcher looked down at Cloasse with a somewhat perturbed expression. "You're like a magnet for trouble, girl. Someone should be keeping an eye on you. Like that Jace guy, but not." The vampire paused for a moment, as if remembering something "..or yes, actually. Didn't you say you were coming with him? Where is he, anyway?"

Fletcher glanced about the bar, as if expecting to find the man concealed under a table or something equally ridiculous. "I would've thought if your dad had managed to hook you back up with him again he wouldn't be letting you out of his sight.."

"So he's a bodyguard?" Fletcher shrugged. "I guess that's probably a good idea, given Gina's wedding plan. Guests arrive... mingle... refreshments... everybody sits down... spring the ambush... gunfire... death." The vampire returned his gaze to the far wall, grimacing. "I get the feeling that we shouldn't have ordered the tablecloths white.. maybe crimson.."

Glancing down at Cloasse again, Fletcher prodded the silent girl with his foot. "The idea of going anywhere with hugs-for-hire that depressing?" he teased, smirking.

Fletcher frowned. "I thought it was funny.." he ventured, shrugging. "But if you're going to be that way about it, what do you want me to do?" The vampire spun around to sit cross-legged on the bar top, facing Cloasse with a frown.

"I can't imagine you'd be any more pleased if I started blabbing on about it in a 'learn your lesson move on' kind of way. That would just be harsh, yeah? So what do you want me to do? I'm obviously doin' it wrong, so give me a hint, a nudge. One of those 'get out of jail free cards' would be great as a metaphor right now."

"Didn't you hear me earlier? Getting in Gina's way right about now would just get me stomped on." Fletcher folded his arms grumpily. "And yeah, I assumed I wouldn't see you before then, it just so happens that coincidence has foiled my amazing prescience! I apologise for not being a better psychic, jeez."

The vampire took another gulp of beer. "And you ignored my question. Which kinda makes me think that there's nothing that I can do right here. Plan to correct me, or do you want me to give up and say you're a lost cause?"

"Hey!" Fletcher seemed to lose his grump for a moment, "I didn't say that. I don't want you to not come just 'cause of this. I mean, it might reduce your chance of getting shot, but you'd totally be mad with me for like... ever."

The vampire leant forwards onto his elbows. "You don't really want that, do you? Or is it that bad?"

Blinking, Fletcher dot-dot-dotted for a few moments at that. "Eeh." he said after a moment, eloquence and poise all contained within that single syllable... somewhere else. "Look, Clo..." The vampire scowled, as if not sure where to go with this.

"I don't.." Again, 'Fletcher' scowled, stopping mid-sentence. Leaf was deviating from the vampire's exact imitation now, but moving perhaps more into the vampire that Cloasse wanted him to be. This was where things started to get fun...

"I'm not taking the piss." Fletcher drummed his fingers on the counter-top with irritation. "I'm not.. Look, do you ever wonder, sometimes, how impossible my relationship is?" This definitely wasn't Fletcher now, but neither was the Fletcher in Cloasse's head, her imaginary Fletcher. Her Fletcher.

"The slayer and the vampire? Does it not bemuse you why exactly someone like Gina would even consider the concept of 'settling down'? So why the wedding, huh? If not only to lure Dusk in for her to enact some vengeance, then why, huh? You never ask that?" Fletcher folded his arms and made a point of looking at the ceiling.

"I ask it, for sure."

"Yeah, and the funny thing? I try not to think about it either." Fletcher continued to drum his fingers on the counter. "That's not healthy, is it? Surely I should know these things? Surely I shouldn't be afraid of my damn fiancée when she gets in a mood?"

Fletcher glanced briefly at Cloasse. "You ever feel like bait before? Like some little worm, wriggling in a pot to catch the big fish? I feel like Gina's worm, to catch her big Dusk fish. That's not good, amiright?"

Fletcher nodded, "And that's another thing. You say 'biggest day of her life', well then that surely makes it 'the biggest day of my life', too? Does it? 'cause I sure as hell ain't thrilled to pieces or anything. If anything I'm looking forward to this Friday less, because it doesn't mean the last day of work any more!"

Fletcher threw up his hands. "I get the feeling that I'm doing something wrong, somewhere. But then-- here I am, dumping emotional baggage on someone? How long ago did I decide never to do that? It's embarrassing, why do people do it so often?"

"Damn this doubt. Now I remember why I don't it." Fletcher scowled. "I bet it's normal to do this a couple days before your wedding. I just have more logic to tap into than most people." The vampire looked down at Cloasse again, and paused for several moments.

"I'm not sure thinking about things is making things better. The more I think about them, the more I think I... eeh." Fletcher cut off with a climactic rap of his fingers on the counter, and returned his eyes to the wall.

Fletcher glanced at Cloasse, then back to the wall. "The more I think that I'm making a mistake." the vampire finished, sliding off of the counter and onto a stool with a scowl. "I really don't think that Gina even close to loves me, except perhaps in the same way people love a pet, or chocolate. And I don't like being considered chocolate."

The vampire leant back and stared at the ceiling again. "Aaand maybe a bit more relevantly... I don't think that I love her."

Fletcher didn't move his gaze. "Jeez, you aren't making this easy." he commented, swinging his legs out a few times. "I've been having these doubts for like... a long time. Not like, since the start, there were a whole different set of doubts at the start. Gina's just a bit too.. nuts. Things'll never settle down around her, there'll always be someone trying to kill me. That's not conducive to a healthy relationship. Not to mention the love thing.."

"Eeh.." Fletcher didn't seem particularly thrilled with that, understandably. The vampire glanced at Cloasse again, raising an eyebrow. "You seem to be oddly interested in that cigarette. Does it symbolise something I'm missing, or can you just not bear to look at me? I know, it's awful to see me in this state, I'm so amazingly cheerful the rest of the time that it's shocking. You don't have to like, make it so obvious, though."

The vampire sighed lightly. "Ew. I'm sighing now. I feel really silly."

"Addiction, too." Fletcher added, seemingly idly, with a wave of his hand. The vampire leant back on the counter and met Cloasse's eyes briefly, flashing a smile. "Anything I can do to cheer you up? It's no good to have the both of us in a bad way about something.." the vampire blinked, as if just remembering exactly what Clo was in a bad way about.

"Oh, yeah.. right. Well, you know.." he began, once again trailing off with a shake of his head. "Nah, never mind."

"Eh." Fletcher frowned. "I've just been thinking. And yeah, I know, shock horror; Fletcher doesn't think! He just does shit and doesn't afraid of anything. Yeah.. I have been thinking though."

The vampire looked away for a moment. "About what you said. You know. I haven't actually been insensitive enough to just pretend it never happened. Even I'm not that bad."

Once again, there was an ellipsis-worthy gap in Fletcher's speech. "I'm far too swish for this awkwardness, you know. It's stupid. I should just be all silver-tongued like the rest of the time."

There was another, even longer gap. "Look, Clo.. I was thinking about what you said. How you said you.. loved me. Even though I didn't pay attention to it at the time, you... you definitely meant it more than Gina ever has, I think. So I guess what I'm trying to say is..."

The pause was shorter this time, but perhaps even more agonising. Rather than ending it with another awkward line of dialogue, however, 'Fletcher' chose instead to place a determined frown upon his face, lean forwards, and kiss the scrit firmly on the lips.

'Fletcher' leant back after a moment with a raised eyebrow. "Lost my touch, have I?" he teased. "Nah, I get it. I'm getting married in what, two days? We'll pretend that didn't happen, 'kay? 'Kay."

Inwardly, Leaf was somewhat bemused. Everything had said that the girl would react positively to that. Maybe it had swayed too far out of character...

Fletcher shook his head, "I wasn't joking." he insisted, "I just didn't think you'd want to, you know, get your head cut off by a vengeful slayer? That might be a bummer for you, and me. I don't want to pretend it never happened, but that's the only option that doesn't carry a helluva a lot of shit with it."
