Character In-Depth

History

Born in the city, Najwa has been running the streets all her life. A solo demon, Najwa has never been paired with a human and while she's curious about the other side of the coin, for now she's quite happy the way she is. She's a common and welcome sight, choosing to use her own power to get about the city, with her own merit. Born to an odd pair, Najwa is the offspring of a civil and a primal demon. Her civil parent, an intimidating and ruthless demon known as Zhiraj was her guide in the world. It didn't take long for the free spirited demon to start making her own way and shortly after she came even close to being able to handle herself, she took off, finding herself in the labyrinthine city. Rules chafed and while the seemingly affable demon did pick up a few of the lessons her sire tried to teach her, for the most part she makes her own way.

She quickly fell in with an older pair, another civil demon and his human. Manuel and Matthias. Still very young, she had no skill in duplicity, nor how to recognize it. She was smitten with the pair of White Rabbits and the demonic half of the duo seemed more than happy to take her under his wing and teach her the ropes. And, in a way, he did want her to excel. He taught her a lot and did his best to guide her towards the dominions suited to her and the ascensions she craved. And when she was sufficiently skilled, he tried to sacrifice her on the alter of his own greed. Cannibalism ran strong for Matthias, and his teachings were a front, fattening her for the slaughter. But he didn't expect her to fight back. Her parents may not have managed to keep her under their wing for long enough, but she was no easy mark. All the self defense Zhiraj had taught her and the taste for blood surfaced and for the first time in her life she had cause to use it. She came away from that fight injured almost to the point of her wounds being fatal, but she had come out victorious. And to the victor went the spoils. With an older demon's dominions under her belt, it was a marked achievement for the young demon.

And thus she went her own way once again. She's spent time with all sorts since, among those a significant chunk of White Rabbits. While not a White Rabbit herself, she's often found in their company, paying for secrets by trade or work. And, in a way, she's not their friend. She is not beholden to them, and if you are looking for backdoor dirt on someone the White Rabbit have already collected tithes from, Najwa is the person to ask. It costs a pretty penny, but there's a price for everything and Najwa isn't exempt. Still, she tries to stay on their good side, doing more good for their organization than ill. It doesn't do to be too much of a thorn in anyone's side and Najwa isn't stupid, not by a long shot.

Personality

Free spirited, Najwa is difficult to predict. On the ideal day, calm and patient and reliable she is, not inclined to look at anyone funny. On her worst day she may as well be a piece of paper in the wind. It may be hard to find her on such days, and you may not want to. She is not opposed to eating rival demons for sustenance. A complex demon, she pulls from dreams but won't shy from eating the competition if the opportunity presents itself and they give her due reason.

Still, it is not hard to get along with the easygoing, curious youngster and she makes for a fey companion if you strike her fancy. She values knowledge in all its forms, and those who give it freely are much appreciated. She doesn't often give it out for free due to it being her bread and butter, but she does value those who do, and for more than the greed that being given information for free inspires in her. Those who value her often find themselves of a loyal friend in return, as much as she can be.

Appearance

Having picked her own form without the influence of a human, her first appearance is a little eccentric. Dressed in the red robes of wanderer from an indie game, sometimes it can be hard to take the fey little thing seriously. But under that black mask is a sharp face and an even sharper mind. If she is trying to be inconspicuous, she may shed the robes, but it's not often, as she is not shy about her intentions.

Short but leggy, she is skinny and lithe almost to the point of looking ill. Her hands and feet fade from the brown freckled skin she keeps hidden beneath her mask and cloak to a coal black. The freckles too shift tone, becoming a gleaming white reminiscent of stars being held in her palms. Her face, should you be privileged enough to see it, is a sharp thing. High cheekbones and a narrow chin give her a fox-like profile and she only balances this out with warm amber eyes, freckles and full lips. Her hair is shorn short to fit easily with the hood, as she rarely takes it off.

When she sheds the cloak for normal clothes, she could almost pass for human, barring her hands and feet. Tending towards draping clothes and leggings, she comes across more as an eccentric twenty-something than the demon she actually is.
