"It'll be misfortunate because I tend to have a rather adverse effect on people...I've been told I'm quite the 'Debby Downer', or whatever that means..." She explained to Katalynn. "I'm not from 'Canada'...I've never even heard of a place like that before." She was starting to kind of like her new roommates...even if they were a little strange, she could just chalk that up to the unusual school they had all enrolled in. It didn't get its reputation from nothing, after all. The dorms were nice, and she even sort of liked the halls, however she definitely wasn't going to express this. It was too much work on her poor, melted face. "I wonder what the teachers are like...I never got to meet any, I'm afraid...on account of being so late to the welcoming party."
Jackie noticed the new girl, and almost wanted to go and hide in the bathroom. "So many new people...I didn't know about having to live with so many, I'm afraid." She said. "I guess I have to introduce myself...yet again. My name's Jackie O' Lanamere...I'm from Candela, it's misfortunate meeting you."
Jackie heard them having a conversation in the other room, and decided she would go and introduce herself to the new comer. Though...what if I scare her off...? Not many people have heard of a candle girl around here... She decided she would take her chances, and she walked out of the bathroom, and greeted Kate and Alura once more.
"I didn't know I would have two roommates...now I feel overworked..." She mused. "That's more people to disappoint."
Jackie nodded at her, and decided that the first place she should check out was the bathroom. That was definitely a place she should go to, given the whole Wick and Flame problem. It was pretty small, but she thought that it would suffice for her issues. "Ah...I see there is a lot of water here..." She commented. "That should be perfect for me."
Jackie was, for once in her life, a little put off by this person before her. She's too positive to be normal...It kind of creeps me out... She then berated herself even more for such an awful thought, and tried to force a smile on her face to return to Alura. Instead however, it looked like an awful grimace rather than a smile, so the end result was more terrifying than welcoming
"I-I'm sure we will become friends...or maybe acquaintances... Actually, you feel more like a 'Person I sit with during class to feel less lonely'."
Jackie went over to the window, and looked out for a second, seeing the steep drop to the ground. "Fire magic, obviously...I am a Candelabra, after all." She explained. "Fire magic's all we really know...I've never known a Candelabra who was attuned with anything other than Fire..."
She noticed something was just a bit...off about Alura. Why's her voice keep doing that thing?, she wondered. Then she silently berated herself for thinking such rude things, and about someone she had just met, too!How disgraceful, Jackie...but no one is surprised.
Jackie sighed rather dejected, "I'm a Candelabra, from Candela. Not like you've heard of it before...we're easy to forget." She told the girl. She debated on reaching out to her to shake her hand, and for once her depressing thoughts weren't enough to stop her from being friendly. "I'm Jackie...I'd try harder to sound happy about introductions, but I'm still thinking about being here."
Standing in the halls of Fae Creek, Jackie could finally feel the weight of her decision to come here. I'm gonna be here for months...maybe even years..., she thought to herself. The ceiling beams that reached high into the sky, and arched overhead were extremely intimidating for some reason. Makes me almost wish I had a hole to crawl into...She had been quite late to party, and didn't think it would be appropriate for her to just show up late. She wasn't even dressed well enough to use the "Fashionably Late" excuse, so she decided to just skip the party entirely.
She trudged her way down the halls, looking for her room, and trying desperately to remember where she was supposed to go. She made her way to the room slowly, walking up the stairs. Her wicks were out, only because she knew that it wouldn't exactly be courteous to fill the building with smoke and wax as she walked. She came upon a door, one she knew to be the one to her dorm, and opened it.
She frowned, seeing the room wasn't, in fact, empty. "Oh...there's someone else here already...?" She noted. "I was hoping I would be alone for the first few hours of the day...so no one would have to deal with me."
Name / Nickname: Jackie O' Lanamere Age: 17 Gender: Female Nationality: Jackie comes from a for away land called Candela. Candela is home to Candelabra people, and they specialize in fire magic. They also sell and make specialized magical candle's that have many different uses.
Species Name: Candelabra
Description: Candelabra's are essentially candle people. They are made of wax completely, and have little flammable wicks on the top of their head. They can be an assortment of colors, and can in fact melt. Melting doesn't kill them however, and they will never melt to the point of being deformed. Sometimes the melting makes their face very droopy looking, so they're expressions can be extremely exaggerated as a result.
Here is a picture of my Candelabra girl, Jackie.
Physical Abilities / Skills: Jackie can light the ends of her hair on fire due to two tiny wicks. She also can light the wick on the top of her head.
Magical Style: Jackie is a fire mage, but she prefers to channel her magic through the wicks in her hair as opposed to her hands.
Magical Quirks: Whenever she uses her Fire magic, it tends to melt her hair just the tiniest bit, as well as melting the wax around her face. This makes her face look very sad, and apathetic.
Magical Skills, Hobbies and Interests: Aside from being able to shoot fire from her head, she's also an excellent candle maker, and can enchant various candle's to do things for her. Her specialty are magical Jack O Lantern's that can run around and eat trash for you.
Why are they enrolled in Fae Creek Academy?: Jackie is enrolled at Fae Creek because there aren't any real magical schools that will take Candelabra's like her. Many people are seemingly biased against Candelabra's, and they are often not allowed in many spaces because of how much they drip wax all over the place. Fae Creek is one of the only schools that are accepting of virtually anyone, and there are plenty of people who are odd like her, so she figured she would fit right in.
Personality: Jackie is a pretty forlorn, and sad person. She often talks in a monotone, depressing voice and could be considered a "Debby Downer" by anyone interacting with her. Despite her somber personality, she's still a pretty social person. She will converse, or at least try her best to, whenever the opportunity strikes. Her sad demeanor often gets in the way of her friendships, because not many people like how depressing she comes off as.
Backstory: Jackie was born to two candle makers in Candela who owned a very well known shop for a few years. The Lanamere's would pass down the family trade to their offspring, passing the torch eventually. Jackie had an older brother, and so when her two parent's eventually retired, they passed it off to him. Jackie was content with just being in the Candle shop and making candle's with her family, however one day, when she was finally old enough to light the wicks on her head, Jackie discovered that she had a great affinity for fire magic. Her family was very happy for her, and encouraged her to pursue an education in magic. But being Candelabra's, many school's wouldn't take her simply because of who she was. Her family spent days trying to find the perfect school that would take her, and they landed their sights on Fae Creek. And thus, Jackie packed her bags, and headed for there hoping to learn some more about Fire magic.
General Skills, Hobbies and Interests: Candle Making and carving.
