Elphia Leighton, Daughter of Pyriphlegethon [WIP]

Post by Thorn on Tue Jun 18, 2013 10:09 pm

Name: Her name is Elphia Hope Leighton.



Background: Elphia, since birth, is color-blind, and her mum (who was used to be a famous artist/painter) was deeply saddened by this fact. Elphia will not able to paint or follow her mother’s path. Thus, in her depressed state, Carmia Leighton stated to her family, and to the bewildered, grim Pryphlegethon that the baby's name is going to be Elphia, which means grey.
Pyriphlegethon was not happy about the choice, but since Carmia was in a shocked state of mental (and disagreeing to her decision might cause further damage to her mentality), he had to accept the name. Seeing the baby, however, Pyriphlegethon developed a pity and chose the name 'Hope' as the baby's middle name, to remind Carmia and Elphia herself that there is always a hope, anywhere and anytime.


Nicknames: El, Phia, Elph


What do they go by? Elphia always likes tales, so she prefers her friends to call her by the name ‘Elph’, since it sounds vaguely similar to ‘elf’.


Age:16

When were they born? She was born in New York. Her birthday is June 18.


Gender:


  • Elphia is a girl.



Weapon:

She actually chooses a weird weapon for a girl like her, which is a mace (like the weapon Thor uses in movies, without the lighting and magic attributes, of course) and it's completely made of Celestial Bronze. She also carries a small-sized dagger in her pocket. The dagger is made of celestial bronze, and even though it's not as powerful as the mace, it can be used as a handy weapon in desperate times.


God/dess Parent:

Her father is Pyriphlegethon, the god of eternal river of fire.


Claimed:


  • Yes.

When did your character get claimed? Where? Is there an interesting story behind your character’s claiming?
Elphia was color-blind, and the world she knew was the world of only black and white...but she did know one, particular color. It was three years ago, and it was her first day at camp. She was walking across cabins when she heard collective gasps around her. Campers were looking at her...and she started to see...this weird color...a color she'd never seen in her entire life. One of the campers pointed at her head, and as she looked up, she saw the sign of Pyriphlegethon, decorated by flaming...red flames.

Powers:


she currently has none.


Hometown:

She was born and grew up in Colorado, US.


Mortal Parent(s):

  • This field requires a minimum of five sentences.
  • Try not to use too many general adjectives. Saying one is beautiful is being general. Rather than writing like that, try focusing on the specific aspects that make your character beautiful.
  • Don't make your character sound like the sexiest boy/girl in the world without even a single flaw in his/her appearance. Likewise, don't make him/her the ugliest.
