Name: Mara Sikes

Gender: Female

Age: 16

Race: Human

Kingdom: Prospit

Psychological traits:

Mara is a nice girl that can be shy around people she doesn’t know very well. She can be very upbeat and when motivated, gets things done quickly and as efficiently as possible. Around people she knows, Mara is strong, brave, and outspoken. However, in unfamiliar territory, she can be very shy, cowardly, and quiet. Making alliances is a leading task for Mara. Having people to back her up in times of need and having others to bounce ideas around with are something she values highly.
Mara is a dreamer. She aches for equality and often dreams of worlds where you don’t need war to settle issues. Sometimes her imagination gets the better of her and she gets lost in her own world. When tasks are at hand, Mara can be a bit of a procrastinator, but once the ball gets rolling, she hates to stop. If someone interrupts her when she is in her ‘zone’, she can get angry very fast. When it comes to arguments, Mara will debate as long as the opposing side can come up with a valid reason for their position. If the opposition can’t come up with a valid reasoning for their views, Mara can get very defensive and angry.
Overall, her friends consider her to be nice, but pushy. They say that she often has dramatic mood swings and is easily angered. She stands up for what she believes in, but will listen to different opinions.

Physical description:

Mara has black hair that cascades in wavy curls just past her shoulders. Messy and often thrown up in a ponytail, her hair is something she fiddles with when she thinks. Mara’s bangs part to the side and often hang down into her eyes, causing her much annoyance. Her eyes are wide, and a dull shade of hazel, but shine with an unsatisfied curiosity. She stands at 5’4”, and has wide hips. In conversations, Mara likes to portray herself as a strong person who can defend herself, however she’s never really tried this theory, and it stays as such. She once wore the robes of a Maiden at the Temple of Life, but the lackluster daily events compelled her to leave. Her Prospitian robes are a golden dress, longer in the back and shorter in the front, with a high collar around the neck. Two fingerless gloves grace her arms, one to her elbow and the other just above her wrist. Pinstriped stockings cover her legs that would be exposed by her dress, and tall boots go up to her mid-calf.




Background:

Born into the Prospitian Royal Court, Mara has enjoyed a life of luxury in comparison to some of the others on the golden planet. When she saw the bloodshed that occurred when the war began, Mara was disgusted that anything on her brilliant utopia could ever go this wrong. When the uprisings first began, Mara was afraid, and spent her days locked in her room, fearful that going outside would result in her death. However some of her friends that were also born into the Court informed her of the uprising that was brewing on Derse, and with the strength of her friends, joined the movement. Mara now keeps tabs on the watch that patrols the streets of Prospit, and takes the rumors they hear to relay them to agents further up the resistance ladder. She herself is closely tied in with the postal system, and helps to regulate the flow of letters to and from the resistance.
In the past, Mara had tried to become a Maiden in the Temple of Life. From here she took her moral standings and hopes for equality; however the daily monotony of prayer, prayer, and more prayer peppered with event planning became too boring for her. One other thing Mara managed to get from her time as a temple maiden was connections. Other maidens were also participating in the resistance movement, hiding and trafficking innocents wanted by the Condesce or other members of the uprising. With the help of her friends at court, Mara helped to strengthen and better organize this movement.
When word of her and her friends’ help got out, some agents of the Condesce acquired a number of names. Slowly and somewhat discreetly, Mara’s friends were slowly assassinated. Now one of the few left of her original group, Mara fights on in the spirit of her friends.

OOC: My name is Jackie, and I’ve been rping for about five years, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been on the scene. I’m kinda nervous about rping after so long, but you all seem so nice, I hope I can fit in okay! At first I was nervous about being the first OC, but then another one popped up before I did, so I feel a little better

Welcome aboard fellow OC!~

Mara seems like such an interesting character. Hehehe I admit I'd get bored of the Temple of Life pretty easy too.
