Devora is a diligent worker, but is also quite laid back at times, especially when she's in her 'office mode'. In such a setting, she can be quite friendly to almost anyone that enters her office. But when it comes to getting down to business, she's very serious about what she does, and doesn't allow for any distractions. Most might say she's a bit of a hard ass when it comes to such things.
On the field, Devora tends to be more merciful to beast-like creatures, unless she has strict orders to destroy them, rarely does she go against such orders. She sees these creatures as potential companions that will assist the organizations cause.
Devora enjoys messing with new recruits by introducing them to her Wendigo companion during their first training sessions.Background
From a young age, Devora always had a special affinity with animals; she would often be followed around by stray dogs, cats, and the occasional family of rats as she walked through the streets, much to her parents chagrin. But as she grew older, the 'animals' that followed become somewhat.. stranger. Some of them had glowing marks or glowing eyes. Some melded into the shadows as they moved, but they never harmed her like they would anyone else. There were times when the beasts were more feral than the others, which forced her to subdue it in someway.. Such encounters have left her with quite a few scars. Worried, her parents asked the OIA to keep an eye on her. At first they didn't think it was a big deal.. Until they properly observed what was actually following her.
Devora made her first bond when she had just turned 20; During one of her walks through the streets, some of the rats that usually follow her around was carrying a strange looking egg, which had glowing blue markings on it. She decided to try hatch the egg, and (not really) to her surprise, a baby raven hatched from it. The moment it locked eyes with her, she felt a connection, unlike the usual imprinting. A bestial bond. The raven
was quick to grow, becoming a faithful companion, who serves as her eyes in the sky.
It was at this point, the OIA made an official investigation into Devora's family and activities. For the most part it all seemed harmless outside of the supernatural beasts that attacked her previously. Due to her magical bond with the raven, they saw her as an asset to the Agency; putting her through rigorous tests and training.
Devora's reputation as a 'crazy cat lady' was quickly replaced with just 'crazy' after one of her missions. A mission to prevent the manifestation of a Wendigo. Her raven made the mission to find the would-be wendigo far smoother, but the hard part was stopping it. The tree was slowly becoming corrupted, and it's rampage had injured some of her squad. After some hesitation, she decided not to kill the beast as she had been ordered to. She instead placed a magical shackle on it, a shackle used to subdue larger magical beasts. Whether it would work on a would-be Wendigo was a huge gamble. Fortunately, it worked. The creature's corruption had ceased, but there was the problem of figuring out what to do with it.
A stack of paperwork later, Devora was ordered to keep it under control. Should it lose control, she would be responsible for putting it down.Assigned Division:
