Name: Camille Thibodeaux
Racial: Louisiana Cajun
History: The Thibodeaux clan may not be as old as some families- Camille’s grandmother Marie was the first to practice- but they have earned a reputation as skilled users of nature magic. The family believes in exposing their children to magic at a young age, and as the oldest of four siblings, Camille was always the first to try new spells and potions. She was never the best, but still managed to get the hang of most aspects of magic.
Her mundane life was more, well… mundane. Decent grades, but no genius, played a little bit of soccer in high school, that sort of thing. Her one bad moment came as a sophomore, when she tried using magic to make a cute girl in her English class fall for her. The spell made Camille’s target crazy in love with her, all right- emphasis on the crazy part, to the point where said girl was willing to stab anyone who came near her love. Not only did her mother know exactly how it happened and ground her for three weeks, but as a result of the whole sordid mess, she was outed as a lesbian, which wasn’t the best social status in the Deep South. She fell into a deep bout of depression, which she has only recently come out of.
Two weeks ago, she got her letter from Raindale, something she had been looking forward to. Her mother turned down an offer to study at Raindale, years ago, and advised her daughter to do the same. She wasn’t ready yet; she could go next year. Camille refused- she wanted to leave Louisiana and see the world. The pair had an argument that nearly devolved into hex flinging, but in the end, her mother relented. Camille is ready to start at Raindale, not quite sure of what’s waiting for her.
Personality: Camille is a trickster at heart, albeit more kind than most. She loves playing harmless pranks, and is a natural saleswoman. However, she can be intensely private at times as well, and enjoys reading. She also suffers from depression, and has a tendency to be somewhat moody.
She is intensely interested in what would traditionally be termed the “dark arts”, and when she’s working in those areas, she tends to be more theatrical. Flamboyant rites, fire and smoke, that sort of thing. It tends to get under the skin of some witches, as they think she’s playing to a stereotype, but others seem to like it. She will do curses for other witches, but it’s on a case by case basis- the party hiring her has to be well and truly wronged before she’ll consider the act.
