If one were to describe Effie, they might say that she always has her head in the clouds. Or that she's a clumsy ditz. Though, if they were to dig below that ditzy, sometimes clumsy exterior, they would find a girl who is far more intelligent and creative than people give her credit for. She refuses to acknowledge this if it is brought up, and truth be told, she'd rather people not know of her book-smarts. Effie doesn't like the spotlight or when people expect far too much from her. She knows that if people know that she's smart, then they expect things from her, and she fears that she'll never meet people's expectations.
She has a baby face framed with auburn colored hair that falls just to her shoulders. A multitude of freckles dot her heart-shaped face that only seem to darken from the sun. Effie hides her insecurities behind a happy smile and a bubbly personality. She prefers the outside than being cooped up in the house. Though, if she is inside, it's usually at a Starbucks somewhere sipping on an almond milk iced latte that she's almost never seen without.

Strengths ➽➽➽ Aura Manipulation - the ability to manipulate her aura rather than the energy around her. Skilled users of this may be able to create aura weapons or barriers, but as she is a novice at this, it only manifests itself as small, glittery aura blasts from her hands. The longer she uses this ability, the more draining it becomes on her body. If all of her aura is used, she will fall unconscious until the energy is replaced- whether from eating or from rest or both. ➽➽➽ Aura Detection - Effie can see the color and strength of other people's auras. She cannot manipulate them, however. ➽➽➽ Chi Duplicate - she is able to create one duplicate of herself with her aura. It is significantly weaker than her and has no abilities. This spell only lasts 10 minutes.
Weaknesses ➽➽➽ Effie has an increased metabolism. She can eat a large meal, and still be hungry in a few hours. She can eat anyone under the table and never gain weight from it. This, however, can become debilitating if not sated quickly. ➽➽➽ Her aura has a tendency to burn her if she expends too much of it or cannot control it.

♥ Cheesecake, raspberries, iced coffee/lattes, nerd-wear, DnD ☒ Not having privacy, people pointing out her eating habits, shoes, dairy ✧ ✧ ✧ Doodles in the corners of her notes and journals when she's thinking ✧ ✧ ✧ She's a closet nerd, and will stop at nothing to make sure no one finds out she plays DnD on the weekends- even going so far as to keep a lock on her journal that she always carries around ✧ ✧ ✧ She snorts when she truly laughs or laughs really hard, and tries (terribly) to cover it up.
t r í v í α ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ ➽➽➽ She's terribly lactose intolerant, and so she is usually seen with an almond milk iced latte rather than one made from milk. But you'll pry cheese from her cold, dead hands. ➽➽➽ Thinks her name is old-fashioned, and prefers to be called Effie or Euphie rather than Euphemia. ➽➽➽ Raspberry cheesecake is one of her major weaknesses. Want her to forgive you if you made her mad? Cheesecake. Want her to love you forever? Also cheesecake. ➽➽➽ Still dots her i's with hearts ➽➽➽ For many years, her locked journal has been her only privacy, and only true friend. ➽➽➽ Repeated a grade. Not because she's an idiot or doesn't care about her grades, but rather because she received an academic scholarship from Arcadia, and convinced her father she wanted to experience going to school with other girls her own age. ➽➽➽ She hates shoes, and prefers to go without. ➽➽➽ Effie eats at least 3000-5000 calories a day and has never gained a single pound.

Effie has lived a mostly reserved life after she began living with her father at the age of eight. He claims that her mother ran off with another woman and left the two of them behind. The two of them have moved from place to place every few years, and she became used to being on the go. It was always somewhere on the beach, and she came to love feeling the sand between her toes and the sun on her skin. Her father became a helicopter parent that pushed the girl to do better, and as a result she allowed her grades to remain average. His helicopter parenting style gave her little privacy, and she found herself turning to a journal that she kept secret from him in fear that he would take even that away. He disliked nerd culture, and so she kept her affinity for tabletop games a secret from him.
Then, they moved to San Junipero. It just felt right to be there. Her father had wanted to pack up months ago, but Effie dug in her heels- saying the two of them had never really settled anywhere, and that she needed to experience school with other people- even if it was just an all girl's school. She wanted the two of them to actually stay in one place long enough for her to make friends this time. He told her that if she could prove herself and receive an academic scholarship for Arcadia that he would allow them to remain there until she was ready for college, and so she worked hard until she got what she wanted to. The school told her that she would have to repeat a grade to start school there, but she honestly didn't mind that. It was a boarding school, and so the only time that her father got to see her in person was on the weekends- which was a sweet relief for her.

Roxxi lives to be the center of attention, the life of any party, the friend that pulls you outta the covers on a Friday night just to get out and DO SOMETHING! Always chatting with others, a wide grin spread across her face, eyes squinted in mirth. A jovial soul, doesn't describe her enough. She has this charismatic flair attached to everything she does and it's a show for sure. Always looking out for what she's gonna do next. Whether that's a good or bad thing is yet to be determined. It takes quite a bit of time, however, to chip away at her energetic persona to discover her true self. It isn't that she isn't a happy go lucky, high octane person - cause she is - it's just, the hurt and pain of her past has done a number on her and no one but a select few have ever heard or know of it. So, count yourself lucky if you're one of the chosen.
She's always decorated in the most eccentric clothing and color choices - only magnifying her rambunctious and energetic nature. Sometimes even adorning face paint as if she were going to attend a summer festival. Freckles decorate her body - from all the time she spends laying and napping in fields. She changes hair colors at the drop of a hat and as of late she's stuck with the electric blue and her natural blonde. No one would ever know that she wears glasses since she's only ever seen with her clear contacts in, but come night time is where and when she pulls those bad boys out. Roxxi isn't a petite girl by any standards. She's tall and curvy with a certain thicc-ness to her that just exudes comfort and fun!
Being trapped somewhere bored outta her mind, is a hellish place for Pop Roxx. She would rather be constantly entertained, and probably mindlessly so, than have to endure boredom on the regular. Hence why classes are her least favorite places to be during the day. Her ADHD plays a huge roll in this and to help somewhat alleviate her outbursts and goofing off in class, she has the privilege of chewing her wintermint gum or pack of pop rocks to keep her somewhat amused and quiet. It doesn't work as well as they all hoped it would.

s k í l l s & w є α k n є s s є s ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔ Strengths ➽➽➽ Roxxi possesses the ability to generate what she calls "fireworks" energy globes that vary in degrees of power and intensity. The globes obey her mental control, traveling where she directs them, arranging themselves in balls, streamers, and other shapes, and exploding when and if she wishes. These combinations could result in anything from a multitude of colorful sparkles capable of temporarily blinding a person to a fairly powerful detonation, capable of smashing tree trunks or metal objects. Roxxi can absorb the fireworks back into her own body without harm. These are all potentials, seeing as how she is still coming into her abilities and practice makes perfect, right? she is constantly throwing around little fireworks anytime she's excited or happy
➽➽➽ Psionic Shields;; because Roxxi is ADHD her mind possesses a natural defense against telepathic attack - for the most part. Something to do with the fact that her thoughts are all over the place to begin with, it's hard to pin exactly. However, when she's physically and mentally exhausted and drained all bets are off.
Weaknesses ➽➽➽ Roxxi exerts a lot of energy, whether using her abilities or just through her rambunctious nature - because of this, she requires a lot of sleep to help recharge herself;; but when she's out - she's out. ➽➽➽ Her hyperactive self can rub people the wrong way. As of late she's been reflecting on her actions a lot more so that she doesn't lose friends because of it. So far, she has been unsuccessful in holding back. ➽➽➽ Acts faster than she thinks ➽➽➽ Overly blunt

Roxxanna Kade;; the fun, color loving, popping rave girl. She is probably the most genuinely blunt but nicest person you'll probably ever meet. Don't be naive enough to believe she can't be downright bitchy - she can and will - she's just more energetic and hyper and scatter brained than rude. Roxxi comes from a sort of broken home, still living with both parents, though her mom is always worked ragged and her dad, well, he spends a lot of time at the "office". When either of them drink, they like to take it out on one another, otherwise it was Roxxi who got the shit end of the stick.
However, since her attendance to Arcadia and seeing her roam the halls with her brightly lit eyes, only ever out shined by her choice in hair color, you would never guess this girl was suffering on the inside. Roxxi likes to think that if she can make other's lives better than her own, than she's doing a damn good job and her life has purpose. So, that's what she tries to focus most on. If and when she can actually focus. The good thing about her living at Arcadia for the last few years is that she's been liberated from her family. At least, for the time being. She plans to fully abstain from them and erase them from her memories so she can move forward with her life.
Ember is always on the go. She is always looking for the next adventure, whether it be a road trip/boat ride/pop-up concert. Headphones are constantly either wrapped around her neck or against her ears. Never afraid to speak her mind, she holds nothing back and seems to not have a brain to mouth filter at times. Always brutally honest, she is not afraid to hurt someone's feelings. Though, what she says is usually never stemmed out of hate- she just believes everyone deserves to hear the truth.
. Concerts . Books . Bargains . . Makeup . Mall . Heels . . Never seen without some type of caffeine . Constantly looking for the next concert. Always seen with headphones .
Spells → Telekinisis- Can move small objects with her mind, yet not strong enough to move people. Helps when getting that VIP backstage pass. Apportation- Can teleport small objects from one place to another. Must be able to see the object, and the place where she wants the object to go.
Weaknesses → Blind as a bat without her glasses. > Mouth of a sailor. > Cannot sit still.
TRIVIA → Always breaks out into song. Full of seemingly useless knowledge of music and bands. Her favorite genre of music is indie pop. Can speak three languages- English, Spanish, and Italian.
