Tansy Carmichael
« on: October 06, 2010, 10:30:56 AM »
Name: Tansy Carmichael
Age [appearance]: 24
Age [actual]: 24
Date of Birth: 5/18/88. Taurus, moon in Virgo
Gender: Female
Species: Air nymph

Hair: Naturally, Tansy’s hair is white, but she dyes it all colors of the rainbow.  It falls in a rainbow of thick, luxurious curls to her hips – unless she has it tied in a knot behind her head, or otherwise styled. Tansy is VERY proud of her hair, and considers it her best feature.

Eyes: Bright blue, though she often wears bright green contacts. Her eyes are usually ringed in some sort of bright, colorful makeup, which often incorporates glitter. Her eyebrows are dyed pink. 

Frame: 5’6” 108 lbs. Average height, with a thin frame. Slimmer in the hips than in the chest, but not freakishly.

Tattoos/Distinguishing Marks: A red Oligarchy tattoo on the left side of her neck.

Personality: Tansy is one of those people who always has a thousand projects going at once. She has the attention span of a retarded gnat, but a great brain for multitasking. She is a lively, sprightly type, but also tends towards flightiness.

History: Tansy’s parents were both air nymphs.
As a child, her family was constantly moving because –though both her parents were hippies–her extended family didn’t share their views.  Tansy’s extended family is a cloistered, secretive, backwards lot who believe in racial purity, and practice inbreeding extensively.

Tansy’s parents are cousins, once-removed. Their marriage was arranged, but they managed to fall in love, anyway, and snuck away from the family’s Appalachian compound just before they were to be married. They have been on the run–and hiding their true nature–ever since.

Tansy lead a very sheltered life out of necessity; her parents dyed her hair and homeschooled her when she was young, and it wasn’t until she was middle-school age that she realized it wasn’t normal for people to be able to manipulate the environment as she could. When she confronted her parents about this, they calmly explained that they’d been hiding her supernatural nature from her until she was old enough to keep the secret herself.

And she kept it well, until after highschool–when she moved out to find her own way, and found herself in the City.

She still worries that her family will come for her.

Awareness of Supernaturals: Knows about most species of supernatural, since she works at the Oligarchy, but she can’t identify any of them by sight unless they reveal themselves.

Occupation/Job: Assisstant to Vomas Doyle.

Interesting Facts / Quirks: Tansy dyes her hair herself, and has never cut it.

Tansy is an accomplished violinist, having stuck with it since she was young.

She has an ancient, obese Pug named Beebs. She like to dress him in outfits and bring him to the office.

Tansy drives a magenta Smartcar.

Hobby/Hobbies: Crafting, sewing, starting new projects, dancing, playing the violin.

Likes: Color, crafts, organizing things around the office (though not her apartment), solitaire, hair dye.
Dislikes: Black,  intolerance, people who are inflexible, deadlines, math (calculus, specifically).

Strength: Has a great brain for multitasking and is very adaptable.

Weakness/Flaw: Tends toward flakiness.


Tansy and Beebs

You are the  hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought
and what I said
You are the nighttime fear
You are the morning when it’s clear
When it’s over, you're the start
You're my head, you’re my heart
Florence + the Machine, "No Light, No Light"
