Female | “Ellie” | 20
Standing at 5’8” with brown hair cut in a short angled bob and light grey eyes, Elin dresses and acts the part of a kind and open girl, bubbly but smart all at once. Rarely flustered or too surprised, she’s often the picturesque perfect nice girl, and most people believe that of her as well, earning her much popularity. Internally, Elin has a constant, devious smirk. Because something is always sad and amusing. Likes:
Herself, of course. And crushing others — despair is a nice expression on a face, as is heartbreak. Her stellar transcript is pretty pleasing too. Oh, and cats — the proud furballs are just adorable. And, if there existed someone that could keep up with her, she might spare them another thought. Dislikes:
Pretty much everyone, especially klutzes and people who aren’t on her plane of existence intellectually. And people who are too “good’ — being a goody-two-shoes has made her a nice person magnet, and she only puts up with it because she has to keep up appearances. If anything, she hates “Ellie,” her alter-ego. The honey-sweet words she has to spout sometimes makes her want to retch. Also, wasted time is just dreadful — she could have used that time to do so many other things, studying and plotting included, however useless studying may be sometimes. Party Trick:
Ellie is too nice, too innocent for party tricks. She can tie a cherry stem knot with just her tongue, but she’s much to embarrassed to ever attempt that in front of anybody. As for Elin, she’s a walking party trick. Did you catch that smirk? Nope, because she doesn’t break character — ever. Profession:
Third year law student at Shine City Academy (skipped a year or two in grade school). Why not business? Because she can, and because she couldn’t resist the draw of being able to publicly crush people under the pretense of upholding the law. Background:
Elin’s from a family of business tycoons, suave, refined, and expert manipulators. Sure they might not have enough time to spend with their daughter or with each other, but their expectations and talents have been passed on well. An only child, Elin doesn’t mind the way her family is, nor does she mind being alone at home. She got used to it a long time ago, when she realized that unlike most people, she had a brain and the ability and resources to use it. Thus began her journey to stellar grades and a future position at her family’s company. Personality:
Elin keeps her school life separate from her “real” life at home, where she does the bulk of her law homework (unfortunately not all laws are based on common sense). Most of her time is spent out with friends. As one of those people who can maintain pristine grades without much effort at all, Elin has a lot of time to kill. With friends and contacts scattered throughout the school hierarchy — teachers and students alike — she’s able to pull a lot of strings so that things go her way — which they almost always do. Between her extracurriculars — some various groups and clubs, as well as volleyball — and the time she spends keeping up appearances — shopping trips, visits to cafes, and various other mundane excursions with friends — Elin doesn’t spend much time at home anyway. Again, she doesn’t mind — all that’s at home is a large, empty house and a bunch of maids and butlers to for upkeep.
”Ellie,” Elin’s usual face, is kind, smiles a lot, and a little goofy. She’s smart, sure, but she doesn’t really look the part with how ditsy she is. Sometimes she might make a surprisingly intelligent comment or two before lapsing back into blankness. Caring and considerate, she tends to put others before herself, often even inconveniencing herself in the process (like doing all the work in a group project).
Elin, on the other hand, is a utilitarian who is weak to fancies. Actions are undertaken because she believes them to be useful for her future, or because she — on a whim — wishes to see something through. A little sadistic and prone to her whims, she weighs her options on a twisted scale set by herself, rarely considering the ethics involved. She’s bluntly honest and prefers bites to barks — silently, if possible.
