|{Personality}|
|{ Determined, Cunning, Aggressive, Bossy, Caring }|

Stella is both emotionally and physically strong, able to withstand a great number of things. Not a lot of people go to her for advice as they often meet her and believe she is a little standoffish, but she would be a prime candidate for advice. She is a little world weary, but she is well-versed in political and worldly issues, as well as simply emotionally intelligent to a point that she understands other people’s pain even when she wishes not to. She can see things from a new perspective, but is easily frustrated when that is not returned by others. She is an energetic young woman, always keen to learn new things and satisfy her ever-growing curiosity.

|{Appearance}|

Stella is very short for a girl, standing at a mere 5'1. Due to her African American heritage, her skin tone is a light brown, almost the color of cocoa. Her eyes are deep brown, and her hair color nearly matches her eyes. Her clothing style is very simple. She doesn't feel the need to wear anything intricate and she prefers comfort over looking fantastic. She also never wears makeup, since it would just be difficult to do, but she does wear a few bracelets and a different necklace every day.

Well, she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor
Just for the attention.
Cause that's just ridiculously odd
Well, she sure is gonna get it
Here's the setting
Fashion magazines line the walls now
The walls line the bullet holes

Have some composure
Where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break!
When I say "Shotgun", you say "Wedding"
"Shotgun", "Wedding", "Shotgun", "Wedding"

She didn't choose this role
But she'll play it and make it sincere
So you cry, you cry
(Give me a break)
But they believe it from the tears
And the teeth right down to the blood
At her feet
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing Aubergine dreams
(Give me a break)

Have some composure
Where is your posture?
Oh, no, no
You're pulling the trigger
Pulling the trigger
All wrong

Come on this is screaming "Photo op." op...
Come on
Come on
This is screaming
This is screaming
This is screaming "Photo op."

Boys will be boys, baby
Boys will be boys
Boys will be boys, baby
Boys will be boys

Give me envy, give me malice, give me a-a-attention
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break!
When I say "Shotgun", you say "Wedding"
"Shotgun", "Wedding", "Shotgun", "Wedding"

Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and boys will be boys
Boys will be boys
Hiding in estrogen and wearing Aubergine dreams

New York, New York


Image


As the city taken apart by the third world war progresses, factions build, relationships crumble, and being silenced is a constant fear. Each faction vies for the chance to be in charge, to be heard. In order to do so, the highest ups are put into situations where they must make decisions that can change themselves and the world. The people of New York City know something is coming and they know if they aren't careful, they can be caught in the crossfire.

The city's electricity is scarce, found only by the wealthiest who can afford the gasoline needed to run their generators. Everyone else is forced to use precious batteries and candles in order to see at night. Radios are a common form of communication because of the ability to use batteries, clothing and needed items are scavenged in the abandoned stores that occasionally line side streets of NYC. Money is hard to come by unless one has a job. Clothing stores no longer receive shipments as all gasoline for cars/trucks has been forbidden by most factions in order to save it for the electricity provides though of course, there are the few who bend the rules.

Though WW3 ravages the outside world, New York City has it's own problems to fear as it works out a dangerous battle of power, done by the three most prominent factions, the Youngbloods, Maniacs, and Phoenixes. Those who are extremely dedicated risk everything and in the end, blood can't help but be spilled.

Stella awoke that morning out of recurring dream, like always, where she finally got to rescue James. This time, however, it was oddly different. Stella wasn't herself in the dream. She didn't know who she was, but she knew she wasn't herself... all she could remember was long blonde hair, and piercing brown eyes.

Arabella.

The pure thought of her made Stella sick to her stomach.

Stella laid in her makeshift bed for a few moments before pulling herself to her feet. It was evident to see that Stella had tossed and turned all night, due to her tangled hair and disheveled clothes. Stella sighed under her breath and found her way to the shower, peeling off her bed clothes. The water was cold due to blackout and no water heater, but Stella had pretty much gotten used to taking cold showers. They were quick and most of all, they woke her up.
Stella got out of the shower and changed into a simple t-shirt and jeans- something she'd grown accustomed to wearing- and tied her hair up into a ponytail.

Today was the day that she was going to try and reveal a plan to Caleb. Today was the day that she was getting down to business.

It'd been two weeks since James got captured by the Maniacs, and Stella could hardly stand the fact that James wasn't back already. Stella glanced in the mirror before she headed down the hallway and up the stairs to the offices.
Caleb was bound to be up there somewhere.

Stella passed by the empty rooms before spotting Caleb rolling away in his rolling chair. She nearly laughed at the sigh tof him.
"Morning C." Stella said softly, then she spotted Gert at the front of the room. Stella nodded slightly at him. Gert was Edmund's right-hand, but she didn't really know much about him.

Stella looked back at Caleb and motioned for him, "Do you have a second?" Stella asked softly.

Caleb looked away from his window, catching sight of Gert as he entered the room. Caleb spun around to face his friend, smiling a little. "Hey Gert, I am rather sleepy and hungry. How are you?" Caleb asked in response as he picked up a nearby rubix cube he had found when he had pillaged the Toys R Us in Times Square. Caleb considered Gert's offer. Did he want to get out and go look for possible places James was? Yes, did he really want to do it alone with Gert? Maybe not so much. He thought the guy was cool, but it sometimes got awkward between the two.

Caleb was about to respond when he caught sight of Stella. "Oh, hey Stell. Yeah, I got a sec," Caleb says as he stands, tossing his rubix cube in his comfortable leather chair. "Sorry Gert, I'm supposed to work on finding a way to contact the Youngbloods to give them our new offers without getting people killed," Caleb said apologetically. He didn't want to seem like he was just trying to avoid Gert, but he really wasn't all that into bikes, and he really did need to figure out a way to get a hold of Winston before the Youngbloods did something stupid again.

Caleb walked out of his office that he didn't like calling an office since he rarely did any work in there, preferring his room or the major meeting room. "What's up? Caleb asks, then notices the look on Stella's face. "Did something happen? Word about James come out?" Caleb asked, wondering why she didn't seem to happy.

Caleb leaned against the wall outside his office then thought maybe the conversation would be done better in private. He grabbed Stella's hand and brought her into his office, dropping her off by his guest chair, then putting his arm around Gert. "Hey man, we gotta talk in private. Stella's going through some emotional stuff, I gotta be her rock,"
Caleb says, more joking than anything, but also serious.

As soon as Gert was out, Caleb closed and locked the door silently. He moved back to his chair to sit. "Look, I've been trying to figure out where they took him. They might have a location set up in an old police station like the one by the United Nations Ruins. They'd already have cells built. Sorry..." Caleb knew he wasn't making anything better with him rambling and sounding so freaked out. color=teal]"Tell me what you wanted to tell me,"[/color] Caleb manages to state with a tiny smile that showed he was more concerned for Stella than anything else, even though he was concerned about James, greatly, too.

He adjusted in his chair, tapping his fingers on his desk without thinking as he did. He checked to make sure his medicine was on his desk, just in case the little tickling in his chest grew to be a sign of something bad. He breathed deeply, trying to stay calm though he knew it didn't appear as if he was doing a good job.
