Natalia knows that she is attractive and isn’t afraid to use it to her advantage. She has dirty blonde hair that fells in loose waves to her shoulders. Lightly tanned skin with cold blue eyes, she is the epitome of a stereotype. The blonde haired, blue eyed, dumb girl who is typically on the arm of a school football player. However, do not let the innocent appearance fool you, that’s exactly what she wants. At 5’6, she’s of rather average height with a slim form with lean muscle gained from years of exercise and discipline. High cheekbones and perfectly maintained brows give an aristocratic feel to her entire being. An angular jaw, not too sharp but not too soft. A non-intimidating figure, which is what she’s worked hard to maintain.
To keep up the facade of normality, she dresses casually. Fashionable but without designer items to not draw unnecessary attention. However, she’s never unarmed wherever she goes. While her weapon of choice is a crossbow, she is trained in plenty of weapons to be able to wield any with sufficiency. Nothing much, usually a dagger on the inside of a jacket or in a boot. If need be, she could use any object around her as a makeshift weapon if in a dangerous/high-stakes situation. And that’s pretty much it. To a normal citizen, she is an innocent woman just living her life.
But others know better.

Natalia isn’t your… average girl. Hunting aside. She was never your average child and it all continued to stick even as an adult. She spends most of her time in her apartment painting, or at any small cafe drinking tea and reading. She’s never had much interest in making friends or having relationships. Not to say that she is socially awkward or something! She is actually rather charismatic, able to keep a conversation going, and making even a stranger feel like they’ve known her for years. BUT, just because she’s good with people, doesn’t mean she likes them.
She has a somewhat scientific fascination with supernatural beings. Having spent many years researching them, working with them, hunting them, experimenting on them, it’s all been very informative. Natalia doesn’t HATE any of them, after all. She finds them completely fascinating, you see. So, if she isn’t painting, she’s reading. If she isn’t reading, she’s in yoga. If she’s not doing yoga, she’s training. And if not training, she’s going over research on the big bad of the week. And if not that then… well… uh… oh! Museums! She loves museums… So, yeah. As you can tell, she’s very much the culmination of the word: routine.

Natalia was always a weird child. Never really cried and spent most of her time looking around and studying everything and everyone. And as she grew older, her odd habits and quirks remained, only now she was expected to be the good daughter that her parents wanted her to be. So, she put on this role and was extremely charming, able to just give a little smile with her dimples and then? They were wrapped around her little finger. So, she is able to interact with others, manipulate and seduce others, and overall get whatever she wants without having to lift a finger. Not to say that she can't get her hands dirty and go play in the dirt with everyone else. She just prefers not to.
And as she got older and started training under her parents and family, her antisocial behavior became a little less noticeable and she even convinced her parents. However, she still, on the inside, felt no interest in other people. The supernatural on the other hand? Much more interesting. In her family, she was the researcher. Tracking down those creatures and providing information. She is extremely smart and intuitive, proving that she isn't just a pretty face.

As implied in her personality section, Natalia was always an odd child. Something her family noted at a young age. And considering her family is rather wealthy, she stuck out like a sore thumb, breaking the mold of the picture-esc family. However, as she grew older and become more aware, she realized what world she was in and what her role was. Trained in fine etiquette at a young age, including learning the piano and violin, as well as taking gymnastics at her parent's urging.
She was the perfect daughter really, with perfect grades, and perfect manners. However, she still didn't really feel... something. Sure, she felt happiness, sadness, excitement, but... there was something missing. And it wasn't until her family told her about the 'family business' that it became clear. She lacked the desire to be social, and also lacked a conscience at that.
It only further showed itself as she trained under the watchful eye of her family, her near-maniacal fascination and curiosity with all things creatures. She wanted knowledge, craved it, even. At first, it concerned her parents but as she grew and even fooled them with a pretty smile and bat of her eyelashes, they moved on. She was useful to them. Why tamper it?
And now she hunts them. The things that countless stories and fiction were stemmed from. It's more of a hobby of hers, a lovely pastime she never tires of. Unlike her family, she doesn't hate them. If anything, she finds them beautiful, and so unbearably fascinating. If it was up to her, she'd capture them all, and keep them with her. Her own personal test subjects and beautiful things to study and admire at her own leisure. She does love beautiful things. Killing them, she finds, to be a waste. But, regardless, she does what is expected of her and she does it well. She does do well in balancing the whole hunter on the weekends, painter on the weekday thing. What more could she ask for?

Natalia is more subdued than other hunters. Not really into the rush of a hunt, and more into the interrogation and studying. As you can infer, she is very knowledgeable about pretty much all things spooky. Due to training, she is pretty damn good with many different weapons ranging from swords to axes, however, she is most confident with a good old crossbow. She is also rather talented when it comes to manipulating people. She's able to get information from pretty much anyone with just a smile. Although, all else fails, good old torture works just as well. And she is also rather talented at that, as well.

Fears: ✰ Small/Enclosed Spaces ✰ Spiders
Personality/Bio: Lilith is a very... quiet person. Not necessarily shy or insecure, she just has very little interest in... well... anything going on around her. She lives with her older brother, John, in a small little house towards the outer edge of town. Her parents are nowhere to be seen and Lilith... well... she didn't really take their disappearance well. So, she turned inwards and stopped really trying in anything and just narrowed her scope of caring to just herself, her brother, and the few friends she does have.
Lilith drinks, smokes, parties, and does everything you'd think a delinquent would do. But, she isn't just some hormonal teenager who's snapping and getting angry at the world for no real reason. She isn't going through a rebellious faze either. After all, she can't really complain about anything. Her brother does everything he can for her and always tries to make sure that she's well-fed, clothed, and happy. To actually put in effort to make things harder for him just... just seems wrong. So, you can see that she does have some semblance of a moral compass.
Also, don't mistake her quiet demeanor for being passive or a pushover. Just because she never really speaks doesn't mean anything. If you mess with her few friends, her brother, or even herself, she will not hesitate to put you in your place. And in her mind, your place will be at her feet. (What can I say? She has zero tolerance for bullies.)
Other: While she doesn't have a car, she does have a skateboard... Touch it and you die.
Oh! She's also allergic to strawberries so... yeah... don't give her strawberries.

Fears: ✰ Being Alone ✰ Tall Heights
Personality/Bio: John is Lilith's older brother. He was your classic bad boy, rebel without a cause, irresponsible troublemaker who thought more with what was between his legs than what was in his head. However, after losing his parents and suddenly being left with a baby sister to take care of... well, he had to man up to keep her safe. Bouncing from town to town, the pair lived a very withdrawn and hard life. And as John grew older, he began to grow more responsible and began to think of Lilith as more of a daughter than a sibling.
At this point, John has finally managed to find a place for both of them to stay and put down roots. John was even able to open up a small gallery outside of the garage where he can sell his art pieces to make money (While doing odd jobs here and there for cash. He was a rather strong man.) Of course, he wasn't perfect or even the best role model, his sister having taken on some of his habits over the years. He still had a temper and still had an issue with authority and is physically unable to turn down a fight. While Lilith uses her words, John is more likely to use his fists. They even each other out.
However, don't think that John is dumb. Despite him never finishing highschool, he isn't an idiot and takes pride in having done well-enough for himself and his sister without some 'stupid diploma'. Overall, John is a good man even if he sometimes has a hard time believing it.
Other: He has a sweetcar that he... obtained a couple of years back from an old friend... Touch it and you die... slowly.
Despite Lilith and him coming from New York a while ago, Lilith has no accent and John has a slight Brooklyn accent... Lilith teases him about it relentlessly.
They tend to go hand in hand as they are siblings HOWEVER we can choose to focus on just one character and keep the other as a background character.
