♛ HEIGHT♛
5'6"
❧
♛ WEIGHT♛
Roughly 130. She's not obsessive about checking.
❧

♛HAIR COLOR♛
Flame-orange, actually. The color is actually quite natural, though she acknowledges that it's a little strange. She wears it quite long, about halfway down her thighs, but doesn't do anything fancy with it. The texture is quite soft and smooth.
❧

♛EYE COLOR♛
They're a sort of faded bluish-grey. The surrounding lighting conditions will often influence which color they favor. Her lashes are long and thick, and her eyes overall rather large in her face.

♛GENERALX APPEARANCE ♛

Cass is rather unique-looking, and considering the fact that most of her life has been spent around vampires of one stripe or another, that’s really saying something. Her hair is the color of embers in the ash, a vibrantly-hued orange, and falls in a silken cascade to the backs of her legs. Her wide eyes give the impression of a youthful innocence and naïveté, and yet for all that, something sad lurks just beneath the surface of them, something that points to a fundamentally old soul, so to speak.

She is neither extremely tall nor short for a woman, but one thing that does stand out happens to be her figure—genetics have given her robust hips, long legs, and, ah… the polite term would be a generous bustline. She tends to hide herself in baggy clothing whenever possible, more because she’s uncomfortable being noticed than anything. Of course, there’s really no stopping that, so the gesture is futile. The majority of her features are quite vivacious—there is a lot of life in everything she does, and it is reflected in her appearance, from the healthy rose tint in her cheeks to the defined muscle tone of her arms and legs. She clearly takes very good care of herself, and radiates vitality.

Cheerful ♙ Loyal▪ Intelligent ♙ Tolerant ♙ Humorous ♙Affectionate ♙ Active

Cassandra has been likened, at various points in her life, to several kinds of small animal. This is partly because she has a kind of guileless charm to her that speaks well of her character, and an honest tendency to look for (and find) the best in people. She is forgiving, gentle, and empathetic, to the point that in some ways, one might well consider her a doormat. That’s not to say, however, that she is some shrinking violet, hiding in the corner and repressing a bunch of trauma as a result of being the human servant to a vampire king. That’s not the case at all.

Rather, she is concentrated life and energy, moving through life like the weather: bright like sunshine, soothing like rain, soft like snow. She’s clear, sweet laughter and megawatt smiles, mischievous winks and honest tears. There isn’t a single thing about her that is artifice—she doesn’t feel the need to be anything other than what she already is. It’s debatable whether she even knows how to lie, though she can be surprisingly good at keeping secrets.

Her attitude towards her position is an optimistic one. Most people, perhaps, would not be keen on serving a vampire: humans because they’re supposed to be enemies and vampires because most of them are too proud to live in service of another. But honestly, Cass likes her job. It gives her the chance to travel and see a lot, and she thinks that she really does help His Majesty, at least a little bit, and she finds that very fulfilling. She likes being relied upon to do the things she’s good at, and doesn’t mind going out of her way to help others. She’s much smarter than her initial cheery demeanor may suggest, but one does not have to be sullen to be smart. Cass is also remarkably tolerant of people from all walks of life: she has counted hunters, humans, and vampires among her friends, at various points in time. To her, vampires are just as worthy of her consideration and her attention as anyone else, and there’s nothing wrong with humans, either. She dreams, however foolishly, of a world where they can all coexist, just as she coexists with His Majesty the king.

♖ LIKES ♖

❥ Food || Well, considering she has a tendency to get a little anemic, it's not that surprising. Cassie can really pack it away for a person of her size, and eats things with great relish and gusto.
❥ Activity || She's one of those people that always likes to be doing something, a combination of a naturally energetic disposition and habit. Whether it's exercise, reading, or even playing music (which she can do on piano or violin), she's rarely without something to occupy her.
❥ People || Cassie is best classed as an ambivert, someone who can shift back and forth between an introverted and extroverted demeanor. She has a genuine liking for most people, and will appreciate or find endearing quirks that others would just consider annoying. Her patience is saintly, honestly.

♖ DISLIKES ♖

⌦ Violence || She doesn't like it when people fight, plain and simple. That's not to say she dislikes everyone who does fight, only that she wishes they wouldn't.
⌦ Being Sick || It makes it harder to do her job and just feels lousy. She'd rather be taking care of someone than be taken care of.
⌦ Onions || They make her cry like a baby, and who wants to be seen doing that?

♖ STRENGTHS ♖

❥ Skills || Cassie has an extensive repertoire of mundane skills that every servant should know: she can cook, clean, mend or tailor clothes, organize a schedule, make a wonderful cup of tea or coffee, garden, treat sick people, and so on, all the way up to massage, haircuts, and aromatherapy.
❥ Patience || She can out-wait even the most stubborn of people, and do it all with a smile on her face.
❥ Language Skills || Cassie's upbringing brought with it an extensive education, particularly in languages. She can speak at least six quite fluently, and is passable in another three.
❥ Creativity || An unconventional thinker, at times, as well as a person with artistic talent. Not the most useful thing, but still.

❧

♖ WEAKNESSES ♖

⌦ Trust || Which is to say, she does so far too easily for someone in her position. It has, quite literally, come back to bite her before.
⌦ Only Human || She might be extraordinary as far as humans go, but human she is.
⌦ Compassion || She can tend to feel sorry for people when she really should feel afraid of them, or at least angry.
⌦ Obliviousness || There are some things, and some kinds of danger, that just don't really register with her. It's not complete obliviousness, but it crops up often enough to be a real weakness.

❧

♖QUIRKS♖

Scent/Taste || To a vampire's delicate nose, there is something about Cassie that smells exceptionally enticing. Sweet, but with just the right tangy notes, or whatever the equivalent is in blood-scent, or so one of them was kind enough to tell her once. She apparently tastes even better than she smells.
Flexible || In many senses of the word. Most obviously, however, is the fact that she's bendy enough to make yoga masters jealous. Part of her tendency to take her health very seriously.
Hummer || If she's doing some kind of manual task, she'll often give herself theme music by humming as she does. Thankfully, she's musically-inclined.

❧

♖FEARS♖

Confined Spaces || It's not quite a full-on case of claustrophobia, but being closed in will make her very anxious.
Spiders || Irrational, silly, and very real, as far as fears go. The thing is, she likes spiders, she just can't bring herself to get near one.
Failure || Her job is too important to her for her to feel comfortable failing at it.

♛POWER♛
Touch Telepathy || A weak form of psychic ability, featured in the traditional classification of ESP. Cassie's talent is a sort of raw, unrefined thing. In fact, to call it telepathy may be a little too generous. What actually seems to happen is that she is capable of understanding how other people are feeling, whether they're hostile to her, and so on. Occasionally, she'll get an actual, full-fledged thought or a glimpse of a memory, even, but it's hardly predictable, and not very strong most of the time. Still, it has its uses, she supposes. She tends to keep it secret: other than the people who raised her and her employer, no one else knows about it. The act of reading is undetectable, unless she should choose to transmit as well as receive.

♛LIMITATIONS♛
Well, it's touch telepathy, meaning that it requires her to be in contact with someone. Skin-to-skin contact, actually, though sometimes she can manage it through very thin layers of fabric if she concentrates really hard. She's not psychometric, so touching objects doesn't do anything. Additionally, what she gets is usually fragmentary and scrambled, and takes a lot of interpretive work to figure out if it's anything more sophisticated than raw feeling.

FAMILY
Father Guillame Fleche || 57 || Foster Father
Sister Katherine Ebérle || 44 || Former Caretaker

___It is perhaps not the most auspicious of beginnings, to be found on the doorstep of a remote countryside convent. Nevertheless, Cassie believes it to have been a good one, as far as beginnings go. Raised by a small cloister of Belgian nuns, she grew up surrounded by them and several other orphaned or abandoned children, many of whom were around her own age. As a result, she considers herself quite lucky, having never wanted for love or the basic necessities of life.

Unfortunately, things went decidedly south when she became a teenager. Nobody’s really sure what did it, but something about her changed during puberty (aside from the obvious, of course), and those changes altered her scent, making her unusually enticing to those of a vampiric persuasion. At first, it was just a strange coincidence that the convent saw more visitors than usual, folk who claimed to want a retreat from the real world and some of the meditative peace of the Belgian countryside, but it was quickly noticed that eyes would linger on the young sister-in-training, and while the reason could have been a few different things, none of them were welcome in the monastery.

It wasn’t for another year that someone attacked her outright, though. Even then, she doesn’t think it was his fault. Cassie had been helping the sisters prepare dinner, and accidentally cut herself. On her way to the bathroom to find a bandage, she was set upon by one of the current round of guests, whose eyes were suddenly quite a bit redder than she remembered. She managed to get away, mostly by screaming for help and running, because he fled once she’d altered the others.

She was sent away from the convent shortly thereafter, to a man the sisters called Father Fleche. A retired vampire hunter, he taught her what she needed to know to keep herself, if not perfectly safe, then at least aware of what was going on around her. Some years after she first met him, she was introduced to an ally of his, Ezekiel Whitlock, the king of vampires. Ezekiel made her an offer: protection and the chance to see the world, in exchange for her labor and occasionally a snack. Cassie accepted, and since then, she has been a fixture at His Majesty's side.
