Marinda Winters

0 · 487 views · located in Momma T's Salon

a character in “Veritas Isle”, as played by Fauna

Description

Image
Name:
Marinda (Mari) Winters
Age:
14

Gender:
Female

Race:
Human/Elf

Appearance:
Marinda is a little short, standing at five feet tall, though she'll likely get a little taller as shes not finished growing. She has wavy ash blonde hair that sits just below her shoulders, slightly tanned skin and chocolaty brown eyes. She is a little on the thinner and more frail looking side, but shes not exactly the prissy little things she looks like. She likes to wear darker colors, shorts and jeans rather than dresses or anything like that. She does keep a few dresses she does like wearing though that arent frilly or puffy. She wears make up despite her young age, though mostly just as a form of artistic expression. Shes gotten good at it though, and she enjoys doing it daily as part of her routine. She also loves dangly jewelry, things with natural more common stones and things.

Personality:
Marinda is a frienly young girl, more outgoing in social situations than most girls her age, but being a little different doesnt bother her one bit. She likes to go out and explore, to learn about new things and see them for herself, and she likes making friends along the way, whether they be people or animals. Shes very sweet to those who she considers friends, and would do anything for those close to her. She has a stubborn side, stemming from being her fathers daughter.

History:
Marinda was born and raised on the islands. Her mother was from a tribe of elves and her father a human man working on the docks as a guard at a warehouse there. Her parents met while her mother was traveling and they fell in love, settled down a year later and had their little girl. Years passed and they gave Marinda a younger brother, who is around nine years old now. Her home life is simple and peaceful.

So begins...

Nyleria smiled as Quentin pulled her close, laying her hands delicately on his chest. "I'm sorry to have worried you. I assumed my letter would arrive...hopefully nothing bad happened to the courier," she said, frowning. She wouldn't put it against the council to have halted her mail, though. For all she knew they'd probably read the letter. It was a relief that she'd kept it short and sweet. "I know, I almost slipped...I don't think Mayelle caught it, though. I just...I've missed being close to you," she murmured, and slid her arms up and around his neck. "Thinking about you has been all that kept me from just giving in and staying with the tribe. They made it so difficult to leave with her - they were worried that after Myrthal left with Orrian and they both wound up dead, letting me leave with her would put her in danger too. Mayelle was the one who ended up convincing them."

* * *

The city was vast and filled with exciting things for Mayelle to explore. She had very little experience with human settlements. Her tribe sometimes set up camp on the edge of towns and villages, but never within, and she'd only been in the settlements a few times. Being here in such a large city and having free reign to run around and explore as she wished was exciting, and though she was still torn up about losing the two most important men in her life, she couldn't help but to grin as she entered the city streets and looked around for a suitable place to explore.

Marinda was walking along with a boy she knew, or rather that her parents knew, who she had been saddled with today for whatever reason. He was boring though, only wanted to talk about their studies and things like that, didnt want to leave the city, and other boring nonsense. And on top of it, this boy didnt like hot chocolate. Mari was convinced this boy was some kind of Sociopath waiting to happen. Then it happened, the boy stopped her and asked her out, right there on the damn side walk. She made a face, shook her head no, and then literally ran off. She ran for a minute and then turned the corner and smacked right into some girl with long red hair, making both of them fall over. Mari got up with a groan. "Oh my god I am so sorry!" She said and scrambled to help the poor girl up. " I shouldnt have been running around the corner. Are you okay?" She asked, looking the girl over.

Mayelle was just about to turn a corner and see what was down the next street when a pretty girl with ashy blonde hair came sprinting around the corner and collided with Mayelle. The redhead let out a startled cry as she toppled to the floor along with the other girl, who groaned before scrambling to apologize and help Mayelle up. Mayelle rubbed her bum slightly as she got up, which was a bit sore, but otherwise she felt okay. "I'm okay," she said quickly, giving the girl a smile. "It's okay! I've done it before too," she said with a little giggle. She'd been the cause of more than a few similar collisions back with the tribe. This girl didn't seem much older than she was, and a bright smile suddenly crossed Mayelle's face. "My name's Mayelle," she offered, sticking out a hand.

Mari let out a relieved sigh when the girl said the was okay. "Thank god. I'm still so sorry about that. Had to run and should have slowed down before turning. Probably shouldnt have ran in the first place, but, here we are." She said ad then blinked at the hand held out to her. She shook it anyways as the girl introduced herself. "Nice to meet you. My name is Marinda, But you can call me Mari, almost everyone does." She said and then dropped her hand again. "Havent seen you around before, you new here or something?" She asked moving out of the way of the side walk.

Mayelle grinned as the girl shook her hand and introduced herself as Mari. "That's a pretty name!" she told the blonde cheerfully. "I actually just got here today. I came here with my mother," she continued, lifting a hand to fluff up her curls quickly. "The island is really beautiful!" she added quickly, her brown eyes darting briefly about. It really was. Maybe this girl Mari would be able to show her around. Seeing the island from the eyes of a local would make her exploration much more effective.

Mari smiled warmly. "Thanks! Yours is pretty too." She said and listened about just getting there today, and that the island was pretty. "If you think this islands pretty, you're really in for it when you see the other ones." She said and then thought about it. "So, I'm free all day if youd like someone to show you around, its easy to get lost here if you dont know where you're going, and i'd hate for that to happen to you." She said with a grin.

Mayelle grinned when she heard the girl's offer and she gave a rapid nod. "I'd really like that!" she responded eagerly. She'd done a lot of exploring, but an island this big - and other islands on top of that - would need extra attention. "I bet you know all the best places," she added with a grin. Whenever locals had shown her around, they'd always taken her to the coolest places. She never seemed to be able to find the same kinds of cool places when she was exploring on her own.

Mari nodded. "Oh boy, do I." She said and motioned for her to follow her. "I'll take you to the tree in the center of the city. Its HUGE. I guess when they built the settlements and stuff, and eventually the city, the tree was just too big to cut down. So they built around it. Other people say its magical or something like that." She said and led her to the tree. Right now it was decorated with lights and ornaments and tinsel and it was indeed huge. Most trees didnt ever get this big, it grew up past the buildings and everything. "Well, this is the famous tree, its pretty cool right now, but most of the time its just a regular old tree. It never changes colors, and the leaves dont fall. So I guess thats why people call it magical." She explained.

Mayelle was intrigued from the moment that Mari said she was going to take her to the tree in the center of town. "Huge?" she asked excitedly, beginning to follow her newfound friend. She'd seen some big trees before, having grown up in the forest, so she wasn't sure what to expect. She grinned when they reached it, though, her brown eyes going wide. "That is huge!" she said, looking towards Mari. "It doesn't change colours?" she asked, surprised. It looked like a deciduous tree, so it should have changed colours in the fall and the leaves should have fallen off in the winter. "Are we allowed to climb it?"

Mari watched Mayelle look up at the tree in awe. Most people did when they first saw it. It was a ridiculous looking tree after all.She giggled and shook her head when she reaffirmed that the tree didnt change colors. "No, not really, the leaves get a little duller, more of a dark green in the winter, but thats about it. Its been here for hundreds and hundreds of years." She said and then shook her head again. "No, no ones allowed to get too close to it, for fear that they might damage the tree. Its kind of the islands pride and joy. All the festivals around here are arranged around it to show it off." She said. "But yeahh...If you try to climb it, you'll likely get arrested. They take it pretty seriously since the tree is so old."

Mayelle frowned a bit, looking towards Mari when she said that you weren't allowed to climb it. "Well, that's just silly," she said with a shake of her head, her red curls bouncing. "Trees are there to be climbed. Especially a tree that big - we're so small compared to it, how could we possibly damage it?" she asked, but then her smile returned and she looked towards Mari. "Where do they keep the trees that you can climb?" she asked eagerly.

Mari frowned too. "Yeahhh. I guess its more of a safety thing. If you fall from too high well...Squish.." She said and then shrugged a little bit. "We keep those on the other island. Though you need to be careful not to wander on to private property. Theres a family that lives over there, and next to them is where the dragon woman keeps all her dragons. So its kind of limited, but thats city life I guess." She said and led her over the bridge to the other part of the island where it was accessible to the public. "Theres a beach over here too, since theres a large lake in the middle of the island. Its closed off now of course, you can go walk by it, but its best not to cross the ropes around the entrance." She explained.

Mayelle followed Mari. She grinned when she other girl mentioned the dragon woman and all the dragons, though she knew that approaching the dragons was probably a really, really bad idea. "Why are there so many places you can't go?" she asked, looking around. For such a huge and incredible place, there really were a lot of restrictions. "My tribe wanders from place to place and we don't have to deal with all this. I mean, if it was just the edges of the island I'd get it because you'll probably, like, die if you fall off, but all the rest of it? It's silly."

Mari blinked. "Well because its the city and not the wilderness I guess..And private property explains itself well enough. You CAN go on the beach. Its just not advised. You wont get arrested for it if you do. Its mainly just closed to keep idiots from trying to swim in the middle of winter. Or trashing the place at night." She said and shrugged. "The edges are kind of a 'if youre stupid enough to get close enough to fall, thats your own fault." Kind of thing though. "And you can go to the dragon ranch you just need to get in touch with someone who lives or works there first, otherwise you risk getting pinned by the guard dragons. But the dragon womans real nice, my family adopted a companion dragon from her in the summer, her names Ofelia if i remember right."

Mayelle nodded slightly. She still wasn't quite sure she understood the concept of property. Land was just...land. It belonged to the world, not to people. "Do you think the dragon woman would let us play with the dragons if we ask real nicely?" she asked curiously. She'd been intrigued by the dragon that had flown them up to the island and was eager to see more of the creatures. She'd never seen a dragon in the wilderness before.

Mari thought about it. "She probably would. She's got lots so I dont think she'd mind as long as someone was around to keep an eye on things. I hear shes got a bunch of kids anyways. So im sure theyre used to being played with like that. Of course, I doubt she lets people play with the really big ones, she might let you see them though." She said and walked her around the lake a little bit.

Mayelle grinned when Mari commented that they probably would be able to go and play with the dragons. "We should do that, then!" she replied eagerly. "If the dragon lady has lots of kids, does that mean she has any kids around our age?" she asked. She'd already gathered that Mari was probably close to her own age, though she wasn't sure exactly what the age difference between the two of them might be.

Mari shook her head. "I dont think so, I'm pretty sure shes only in her mid twenties. I think her oldest are like...five? Wouldnt really know. Thats just what ive heard, they kind of keep to themselves unless its business I guess." She said with a little bit of a shrug. "We probably can go today. Her house is before where the dragons start to bother people, most people anyways. But I dont think theyll really find two teenage girls threatening." She said and started walking off towards the ranch. "Hey, how old are you anyways?" She asked.

Mayelle walked along after Mari, excited now that they were headed to play with the dragons. She couldn't wait to get home tonight and tell her mother all about it, and they hadn't even started! "I'm thirteen," she said to Mari when the other girl asked, a bright smile on her lips. "How old are you?" she continued, glancing around. She really couldn't believe how cool this floating island was.

Mari led Mayelle through the forrests that surrounded the ranch and looked back at her. "Oh, Im fourteen. Just turned a few weeks ago." She stated and watched her look around. "Its pretty out here huh? I like it better than the city, but the city is where I grew up, so I'm more confident I wont get lost in there." She said with a giggle. She led her through till they came up on a house. A dragon that looked like blended right into the dark, dead, bark on a tree peeled off of it and looked at them before huffing and following along with them a good ways back, only seeming to want to watch them. They got to the door and Mari knocked. An elven woman around their height opened the door a moment later, carrying an absolutely plump baby boy. "Hi Marinda, did your dad need more feed?" She asked. Mari had come by to pick it up with a wagon a few times, so they recognized each other. "Not today, May and I were wondering if we could play with the dragons? She's new here and shes never really seen them before, shes real interested." She said. Ofelia seemed to think about it for a minute. "Alright, but only the first two pens on the left okay?" She said and Mari nodded before taking Mays hand and leading her over there. Aspen followed but perched himself in a tree to keep an eye on them. Mari opened the gate to the one pen and let May in. There were only smaller dragons in this one, but they were all friendly and came up to play. Mari didnt waste any time and played with one of them right away. "Arent they cute?" She asked, looking back up at May.

Mayelle was intrigued as she saw the dragon that followed them towards the house, though it was keeping its distance and probably didn't much want to be played with. She smiled when she saw the elven woman on the other side of the door, not having known whether or not to expect to see other elves on the island. It was a relief that she and her mother wouldn't be the only ones. She let Mari do the talking, and clapped her hands in delight when the woman, Ofelia, said that they could play with the dragons in the first two pens on the left. "Thank you!" she said tot he woman before Mari took her hand and began to lead her over to the dragons. She grinned, following the other girl there and heading inside with her. Immediately, there were dragons coming running up to play with them and she giggled, kneeling down and reaching out to pet one of them. "They're so cute!" she agreed.

Mari nodded. "Right? The one I have at my house LOVES to play. She's bigger than these ones though since shes meant to guard the house too. But shes still really really goofy." She said, playing with a couple of the smaller dragons. "If you want to go anywhere else you should come find me. I can show you where I live, its not far from the bridge to this island and its really easy to get to. And I know where everything is, so if you need to find something I can help you out." She said with a smile. "So did you move like permanently? Or did you just come to visit? Either way, my offer still stands."

Mayelle listened to Mari talk while she played with the dragons. She appreciated that she'd so quickly been able to find a friend here on the island. Uncle Q had been right, apparently, when he'd told her mother that there were kids her age for her to play with. She just couldn't believe how fast she'd found one. "That's a good idea," she said, pausing slightly when Mari asked whether she'd moved here permanently. "Honestly, I'm not sure," she replied. "My mother wanted some time away from home to think about some things, so we moved here so she could think and stuff. We're staying in this guest house that this guy named Uncle Q is letting us use."

Mari listened while playing with the dragons, one had hopped up into her arms and was snuggled up there just as contently as can be. "Oh really? That was nice of him. You'll have to let me know what you're going to do. And of course I hope you get to explore some more while you are here. Theres really cool shops, restaurants, cafes and stuff around here. And we hold festivals for pretty much every holiday you could think of. Its pretty cool. I hear in February instead of typical cheesy valentines day thing theres going to be a lantern release at the lake that you can do with your loved ones." She said and set the dragon down. "The Halloween festival was great! If you like scary things of course. But, theres a lot to do in the city is what im trying to say."

Mayelle's eyes widened as she heard Mari talking about all the things the city had. Shops, restaurants, cafes, and festivals? She'd never done any of those things before. Her tribe traded with other settlements and tribes, but she'd never been to a shop, and they ate what they could catch or buy. And festivals, well, that involved being in a settlement at the right time and her tribe tended to avoid settlements when they were busy. "I've never been to a festival before," she said to Mari. "Or a shop, or a restaurant, or a cafe."
