pennivylle aiya lin
[ sᴇʟᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ ᴏғ sᴏᴛᴀ ××× ‟ female · seventeen · grayromantic asexual · pen
█║▸ sᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ :: due to her parents both being lawyers, Pen finds herself comfortably seated in the third caste. While she aims for one, she has no need to be concerned with rebellion. She aims to be queen; she'll crush those who oppose her when that time comes.
█║▸ bɪᴏʟᴏɢʏ :: of the Sota province, Pen was born on January Third, on a surprisingly frigid night. Her parents swear this means prosperity, as well as her wailing, but that could just be a sign of her wanting of attention from the jump.
█║▸ rᴇʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴsʜɪᴘ :: Pen has toyed around with relationships purely out of curiosity, but she is of no real need to be in one. They're too much work, in her opinion. They are, however, useful in getting her what she wants.
█║▸ wᴇᴀᴘᴏɴs :: Just her words and her looks.

♛║ Pen has always been one to draw attention based solely on her looks. She's sensuality and grace without even trying, from her raven black locks down to the designer shoes on her feet. A person like her--pfft, there are no people like her--is one that wears their ambition like a sweater on a chilly day. From the flickering gaze of her brown eyes to the tip up of her lips, there's just something about her. One never knows when it's an invitation or a warning, like the flicking of a snake's tongue. Her appearance is a treacherous thing to try and decipher, unless you know Pen well.

One thing that is most known of her is her favorite shade of lipstick: red. Sometimes bloody, sometimes sweet and light, it's always red. She has a shade to match every occasion, every dress. She dresses her lips in red because she thinks of it as a sort of conquering, lathering her lips in the blood of her enemies--so to speak. When she's queen, lord knows what that red will stand for.

[ ɪ ᴅ ɪ ᴏ s ʏ ɴ ᴀ ᴄ ʀ ᴀ s ɪ ᴇ s ] ××× ‟ sensual · manipulative · ambitious · cunning

♟║ Pen is the definition of sensual. She's got the voice, the looks--it's a part of her. She's the kind of person that'd be dangerous to be alone with, but not in the physical sense. Mentally, is where the danger lies. Your imagination runs wild in her presence, and she won't ever let anyone get away with that. She'll take that and run, make it her leverage. She could get away with murder, all with just a whisper in an ear. That's the kind of dangerous she is, the kind that hardest to avoid once you're exposed to it. She'll play you like a fiddle, and feel nothing. She's not one to feel remorse for her actions, not when it gets her where she needs to be. If pulling people's strings was an art form, she'd be a master of it. She knows what to say, what information to use, what to do to get her way. It might have something to do with her having been exposed to her parents' work, and seeing them in action. They thought she'd follow in their footsteps, even, but she's aiming higher than a courtroom.

Since she was little and she'd been learning about the Selection, Pen has always wanted to be queen. She saw it as her way into the palace, the way to rule the whole fucking world. Chess was her favorite game, the game where she could move a piece and take someone out without doing much thinking. Even now, she loves watching her pawns, bishops, and knights knock down kings and queens. It's the kind of action that get you'll into high places, the places she wants to be in. Her parents have encouraged her ambition obliviously, not really noticing the obsessive striving towards royalty. Pen figured if she wasn't going to be born into royalty, she might as well marry into power. Because power is attractive; looks good when you're signing off a check and buying out a whole store. That's power. And to get that power, Pen realized that she had to be smart about it. She couldn't spread her legs for any guy to get where she needed to be. She learned how to move her pieces for total destruction, so opposition would be near impossible. And she learned it all with a smile on her face. Being cunning comes like breathing; she doesn't even notice it anymore. Hell, she tricked her parents into thinking they had a daughter who was just like them. They were right about the ambitious part, though. Everything else--well, see how that turned out.

▷ From the moment Pennivylle Aiya Lin was born, she was smothered in luxury. Her parents wanted only the best for her, having climbed up the caste system to get where they are. They fought tooth and nail to be in the third caste, but that wasn't goo enough for their daughter. They had expectations of perfection that surpassed like it was nothing, surprising even them. She took the spotlight for everything--grades, looks, sports, theatrics. There was no gaze she couldn't grab. She was pretty much what everyone wanted to be, wanted their children ot be like.

Imagine being her parents, able to show her off like they did. They were barely there for her when she was a small child, leaving her to underpaid nannies that didn't really need to do much. The only good they really did in her development was expose her to so much of what money could get. They were selfish, just as she is, but the kind of selfish that needed to show off. Pen found possessions to be synonymous with the amount of wealth a person had. Going over to the houses of her classmates--not friends, because that was far too much work and annoying--was like comparing herself to others. If she didn't have something someone else did, she made sure she had soon after.

▷ Being splendid and perfect is a lifelong investment, and to the easiest way in Pen's mind was to be royal. She'd daydream like all the other girls about living in the palace, in the capital. Being someone they pampered constantly, even though she was practically getting that then. No, she wanted to wear a crown. She wanted to stay perfect forever, be the greatest. Think of how happy she was to did that she had been selected.

One step closer.

[ sᴇʟᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ ᴏғ ᴘᴀɴᴀᴍᴀ ××× ‟ female · nineteen · biromantic demisexual · ron
█║▸ sᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴ :: As the daughter of two chefs, Ron finds herself in the fourth caste. She has no real intentions of leaving said caste, but her selection might prove that to be a difficult task.
█║▸ bɪᴏʟᴏɢʏ :: Born September Eleventh in Panama, Ron is one of a somewhat diverse culture. Her birth was quite the story, considering females were few in her family.
█║▸ rᴇʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴsʜɪᴘ :: She was engaged, but has since called off said engagement since her fiance went missing. There was also the little issue with her being selected.
█║▸ wᴇᴀᴘᴏɴs :: She does has some serious skills with knives that could easily be translated to self-defense/offense if she wanted such a thing to be done.

✣║ Ron is quite the pretty girl, if not rather tall for her age. She's quite proud of it, her height. People are less likely to give her shit, even less so when they see her skills in the kitchen. Her confidence shows on her face, as well as the self-respect she has. Her calloused hands reflect the work she's done, and several cuts as well. Hmm, let's not discuss those. Ron instead would like to point out that her smile is quite eye-catching, as well as, you know her legs.

Some people think that the mere fact that she's so tall would diminish how beautiful she is, but looking up at her doesn't make that any different. It's actually quite refreshing, having to look up for a change.

[ ɪ ᴅ ɪ ᴏ s ʏ ɴ ᴀ ᴄ ʀ ᴀ s ɪ ᴇ s ] ××× ‟ diligent · confident · amiable · reliable

♞║ Ron is an incredibly diligent person, always working on what she needs to get done. This has gotten her relatively far in the family business, though she's nowhere near head chef in her opinion. She's used to having to work for things she wants done, because her parents were usually working in the kitchen. Her dedication to a task is just her wanting to see the result, see it through. It's rewarding to watch the reaction to something you work hard on, and it usually shows in her presentation. She's confident, super confident. Not the overbearing confidence that most people suspect she has when they first see her, but the kind of confidence that can be infectious. She knows that while she may not be perfect, she's doing the best she can, and that's what makes everything okay. It's what gives her the confidence to step out of her comfort zone. She's quite positive it might get her killed one day, but hey, she can still live life in the mean time.

Being friendly is sort of a trait passed down through the family, though she feels that it may have skipped her brother. She can strike up a conversation with just about anyone, and get them to loosen up. She doesn't have a forced way do doing it either, like those awkward ice breakers a lot of people tend to do. It just happens quite naturally, and both parties end up satisfied with the outcome. At that, she's also a very reliable person. She's used to having to run around for other people, to keep up her end of her job. It translates quite nicely into her relationships with other people, even if they might not be as reliable. You're supposed to do things for others, y'know?

▷ The start of Ron's life was pretty normal. Her parents kept her in the kitchen quite constantly; it was her home. They worked hard in front of their daughter, and later her son. Ron became used to the flash of metal as knives danced in her parents' hands, and pans clattered. It was her own private musical, that she would later take part in. Her upbringing, aside from the knife stuff, was normal. She fit in quite well, had friends, a life.

She even had a boyfriend, who would later be her fiance. However, only a few weeks before she was selected, he went missing. There was no sign of him, like he had never existed. It was like the person she had known might have been a figment of collective imaginations, but she questioned it so fiercely it ate at her. It's a part of her that she won't ever look back on fondly now.

Her brother, Isal, was quit upset with the news of her selection. Her reasoning for it was that she would be able to move on, and to provide for her family. They would gain major publicity with her selection, which is what happened. They'd be able to pay the raising taxes, and keep the restaurant. Hell, if she impressed the prince enough, they could cook in the capital. She knew that had always been their dream, though her parents never said it. So, she womaned up and get herself selected for her family.

Nickname: Aria, Etta

Age: 18
Caste: Five
Province: Baffin
Occupation: Dancer
Affiliation: Illea

Appearance: (photo and/or description)


Arietta looks very much as her mother did in her younger years, with smooth, pale skin and large, wide eyes. Her eyes are a sparkly, sea foam blue, and said to be her best feature, although she does not believe any of her features are particularly endearing. Her hair is a lovely, deep red, but on occasion she has been know to dye it a pale blonde, and it falls in lazy waves to just below her shoulders. She is very slim, with soft muscles. She has been told, much to her annoyance, several times from her younger brother's friends that she has a 'dancer booty.' She understands this is a compliment, although rather vulgar one.

Arietta had always been taught to keep her feeling to herself.So this is exactly what she does. She bottles up all her emotions and bites back her smart remarks.
Her mother has been very emotionally abusive to her entire life, pressuring her to be a good a dancer as she once was. Because of this, she is always very precise and meticulous in her work, especially when it comes to dancing.
But Arietta has her fiery side as well. While she rarely speaks her comments, she often writes them down in a journal, and good Lord, is she witty. If she is ever seen with a wry little smile on her lips, it means she is thinking of something clever.


Arietta grew up with both of her parents. She was a daddy's girl, through and through, for her father always focused on his daughter's happiness. Her mother, on the other hand, was very controlling. She saw to it that her daughter was formally trained, as she was, in the art of dance, and in piano. Her mother had been a dancer, professionally, before she became pregnant with Arietta. Because of the birth, she was no longer in shape to dance, so she decided to live out her dream vicariously through her daughter's life.
Arietta began dancing before she could even walk properly. It was a very laborious process, and she wanted to quit. But her mother, of course, had other plans. The training increased. Arietta quickly drew an affinity for ballet, the only place she could let her emotions out. Her father was her other outlet for emotions. But all was unwell...
Her father came down with a fatal bone marrow disease. It wasn't genetic. It had nothing to do with his line of work, which was a manager for the famous, it just appeared one day, and then he was gone. Dead. His bones too brittle to hold his body together anymore.
This destroyed Arietta, who was the tender age of 10 years old. Her mother was also upset, terribly so, but she took it out on her daughter. Her son, who was three years younger, she babied, for he looked ever so much like her late husband. Arietta, on the other hand, was punished. She was always "too fat," "too lazy," too this, too that. There was no end to the words that came out her mother's mouth. And with every year which passed, as her status among dancers grew, her love for herself faltered.

The Fall:

Arietta's beautiful dancing became her key to fame. She began performing solo acts at the age of 12, working with dance companies and starring in shows. She loved to dance. She loved simply to get out of the house. It felt like she actually meant something, up there on that stage, with the spotlight on her. And when people would rise and clap for her at the end of her performance, she felt something warm in her heart.
But it seems Arietta's fate was turned ill. In one of her performances, an intricate act had to be performed. A leap, where she would jump from a high platform into the arms of another member below. They had practiced this move several times before the show was to open, and Arietta trusted her team more than any others.
So she performed. And upon that platform, the 14 year old girl slipped. And instead of leaping, she fell, fell short of her team and no one was there to catch her. She was injured, one ankle twisted terribly, her wrists both sprained, but her pride was the thing which was most injured.
She was rushed off stage, the entire tour canceled. And in the hospital, when her body was being examined, she could see her mother outside the room, studying her daughter as if she were a science experiment. Arietta lost her drive to dance.

The Rise:
For two years, Arietta refused to dance, refused to even entire a studio. Her mother, of course, told everyone she was simply in therapy, training to return to the spotlight.
It was when she was 16, she finally had enough. She had gotten through the sitting, the waiting, the hope that something out there would make her feel whole again.
So she returned to dance, with more passion that she had ever had for the art. She leaped from job to job, holding a slew of roles in the shortest time span she could manage. She began a hot commodity, one of the most recognized dancers there was, especially for her age. But the fame had no affect on the red-head, all she cared about was getting to dance.

Arietta did not fill out her own Selection form. She never had the drive or the will to be a part of the Selection, all she wished for was to keep perusing her love of dance. So when an envelope came in the mail saying she had been selected, you could say she was surprised.
And that would be an understatement.
While her mother denied having anything to do with the process, Arietta's suspicions immediately lied in her. Her mother told her that, perhaps, the royal family had seen her dance, perhaps they had selected her of their own accord, due to her beauty and grace. At this, Arietta simply rolled her eyes. But, the idea of perhaps being able to dance for the royals while she was going through this process...that excited her.

Stubborn people get themselves in a lot of trouble, but they also get things done.
Lily has always been an extremely stubborn person. She won't just sit back and be told something she doesn't believe in and quietly except it. She'll stubbornly tell you why you're wrong and proceed to prove it to you. She's also stubborn when it comes to being told what to do. She won't do something if she doesn't believe its right. No that doesn't mean she's a goody two shoes but she tries to do what's right she may not succeed but she tries. She'll fight for what she wants when she wants of course she's smart enough not to be too stubborn where it gets her killed or punished. Lily doesn’t back down from anything she believes in though and believes she shouldn’t have to unless you are able to reason with her why her belief in a certain situation isn’t valid or its dangerous which doesn’t happen very often because of her own stubbornness.

Hopeless Romantic
I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.
This quote is so true for Lily. She may not trust easily but she does love easily. Maybe a little too easily. You'd think because you loved someone you'd trust them but that doesn't hold true for Lily. She often loves those who she doesn't trust. Those she shouldn't trust. She want to trust them but doesn't. She falls easily and once she had it takes a lot for that love to go away. Along with giving away love too easily she has always had a need to be loved in return. She longs to be cared for and loved as she does others. Of course she finds it more times than not that that doesn't happen. Before that she was content with just her parents love and understanding but now she secretly longs for it even more so now.
Despite loving to easily Lily isn’t stupid when it comes to dating guys. She won’t let the guy push her around no matter how much she loves him. She won’t do anything she doesn’t want to in the relationship. You push her too much and she’ll break it off. She knows the player type, she’s familiar with it and she knows how to handle those types of guys. Yes her love too easily means she gets hurt easily, but she will not pine after the guy either. Sure she’ll probably cry, but she won’t stoop so low as to beg for them back either. She had more dignity than that. Love may be something she truly wants, but she isn’t going to be stupid about it either.

A person who deserves my loyalty receives it.
Lily is if anything loyal. No not loyal as an she'll let you boss her around but loyal as in she'll fight to the death for those she cares about. She won't just abandon someone because its more convenient for her. Of course if she's loyal to you and cares about you she expects the same out of you. You have to earn her loyalty she won't just give it to you because you ask for. They say blood is thicker than water but blood doesn't always ensure loyalty. Yeah blood is important but loyalty is more important than blood. And Lily is extremely loyal to her friends, family and her pack who are basically her extended family.

I have a protective streak a mile wide and I will do everything in my power to protect those I care about, so messing with this mama bear isn’t wise.
Lily isn’t extremely protective of the people she cares about especially her younger siblings. She has the whole mama bear thing down. She’s been told that her protectiveness was worse than a mama bears. Protecting the people she loves though is a full time job a job she will happily take part in. She’ll protect those she cares about no matter the cost even if the cost is her own life.

Wit is a dangerous weapon, even to the possessor, if he knows not how to use it discreetly.
Wit is a dangerous weapon if you don't know how to use it. Its a good thing Lily knows exactly how to wield it or she'd be in a heap of trouble. She knows when to use it and when not to. She knows how be obvious with it and discreet with it. Lily doesn't use her wit that often because of how dangerous of a weapon it can be. She uses it when necessary. Of course she does take any chance she can to be sarcastic and to just plain joke around like when with friends and family. Lily has always loved to joke around and be sarcastic with things her entire life. Some think its a defense mechanism and sure at times it is, but more times than not it isn’t. She’s just an all out sarcastic person

Charisma. You can’t buy it, you can’t make it, and you sure can’t fake it.
Lily has always had a certain charisma about her. Some people believe its her outgoing personality. Some believe its her honestly. And some believe she’s just a natural born leader. And well some believe she’s just confident in everything she does. Either way Lily doesn’t really know what it is about her that makes her Charismatic just that she is.

Bravery is doing what you’re most afraid of, not the absence of fear, but the act of conquering your fears.”
Being brave isn’t something Lily has an easy time being. Its something she strives to do because she refuses to let her fears rule her life. She brave what scares her most in the off chance it will change her. Make her a stronger person. To help her conquer her fears. Some would say her bravery turns her reckless and maybe its true, but she’ll keep doing what she’s doing until her very last breath. She’s been told many times by others that as brave as she is its like she has no fear. And at times it does seem that way. But they’re wrong she does have fear, lots of it she’s just pushing past it and being as brave as she can possibly be.

Its better to be brutally honest than to live a lie.
Lily is a generally honest person. She is brutally truthful weather you want to hear it or not. Not to say that she doesn't lie every once in a while. If it keeps her alive or her friends and family alive she'll lie to save those lives. She just finds that being truthful makes life easier in the long run. Sure she keeps things from people sometimes but she doesn't outright lie. Sometimes what she says has a double meaning. She'll say what you want to hear and still be truthful about it.

(view spoiler)

I grew up with a pretty normal family for the most part. Older brother, twin brother two younger brothers and two younger sisters and well a mom and dad. I've lived my whole life in the Province of Angeles with my family and close friends. It was actually at the age of 5 that I met my long time best friend Samantha Lorens or Sammy as everyone now calls her since I gave her that nickname when we were kids because Samantha was just something I couldn’t pronounce. It was through our mothers that Sammy and I met since our parents had been long time friends since they were both music producers. It was actually in the 1st grade that the two of us met our other long time friends Quincy and Maria. Sammy’s dad was a lawyer. Quincy’s parents were both firefighters along with my father and worked at the same fire station. Maria’s parents on the other hand were both doctor's at the local hospital.

Now since both Sammy and I’s moms were both music producer we often traveled a lot with them as they traveled with their clients around Illea. Which was something I loved to do. It was because of that I developed the love of music I still have today. I’d been surrounded by music my whole life. Still am for that matter. I’ve been playing the piano since I was 6 had lessons from the age of 6-9 actually and in that time at the age of 7 I was also learning how to play the guitar. Sammy went to piano lessons with me as well, but choose not to learn the guitar when the first time she tried to play one she broke a few of the strings. It was actually my love of music that got me where I am today as a somewhat famous singer. See the first time Sammy’s mom, my surrogate aunt and also my mom’s best friend, heard me sing she decided she wanted to be my music producer. It took a little convincing but eventually she did it. So at the age of 13 I started performing my music.

Part Two
It was actually at the age of 13 when I started my music career as a singer mostly that my mom died. You see what happened was when it was confirmed that I was on track to possibly becoming a famous singer my family and I went out to dinner to celebrate. All of use except my mom that is. She told us she was staying home because she didn’t feel well. We offered to go another night when she was feeling better, but she insisted that all of us go. So we did. And we had a blast and I was so excited and well nervous as well. But that all went down the drain when we got home. See I was the one who found my mom lying dead in her bed surrounded by her own blood. To say I was in shock and completely horrified would be an understatement. I remember opening the bedroom door about to say something to her when I froze in the doorway my mouth still open to tell her how are night went and ask her how she was feeling. I couldn’t help but stare and not only her body which was still recognizable as her but barely since whoever had killed her had obviously used a knife to cut up her entire body head to toe. I also couldn’t take my eyes of the words above her bed obviously written in her own blood. Words that would haunt my nightmares and my waking life. Words that would be with me forever. Words that still haunted me everywhere I went. Words that said: “Tick tock, tick tock, the clock struck midnight and your time is up!” I don’t remember the rest of that night very well. Just that when the shock wore off I screamed and my dad, older brother and twin brother Lucas came running. My dad telling my older brother to keep my younger siblings away from here. Him telling Lucas to get me out of here while he called the cops. And the rest is a blur. The night, the funeral was all a blur. All I know is that the official cause of death was blood loss not the knife puncture to her heart and that the killer still hasn’t been found.

I continued on with my plan to be a singer. Yeah the gossip about what happened to the new famous 13 year singer was at an all time high. And when asked why I was continuing on with the career path I told people it was because my mom would have wanted me to. She wouldn’t have wanted me to just give up and quit. So even now my career is still going strong and I’m glad I didn’t quit because I love it and its definitely a great escape when I need one. So I travel when I need to with my surrogate aunt and my best friend, but still spend enough time at home with the rest of my friends and family.

Now I’m 17 and apart of the selection with no idea what's going to happen and to be honest I'm extremely nervous. I remember being young and asking my mom if she had ever been apart of one and her telling me no because at the time she wasn’t the right age and how she was glad she wasn’t because now she had us kids and my father. I asked her if she thought I should join the selection when I got older since even then I knew I’d have to chance and she told me to do what I wanted to do. I’ll be honest over the years I had kinda forgotten about the selection or more like forgotten I was the right age to participate in the selection. Well until my friends started talking about it and whether or not they were gonna participate. They had decided to try. It was through them that I actually decided to. Well after some convincing. At first I had been mostly against it because I hadn’t wanted to leave my family, but after my father telling me to participate only if I wanted to did I decide to. My twin brother Lucas though tried to talk me out of it. Not surprising since he’s always been overprotective of me even more so since mom was killed. When I stubbornly refused to be persuaded not to participate my twin decided he couldn't persuade me to change my mind so he left me alone. So now I am one of the selected and my friends have wished me good luck despite not being the selected for our province themselves.

Likes:Animals Singing Dancing Writing Reading Piano Guitar Chocolate Swimming Acting
Dislikes:Disloyalty Bugs Spiders Hypocrites Math Snobs Gossip/Rumors Rain/Snow/Cold Weather Bullies
Job/Occupation:Literacy Writer/Family are apart of Southern Rebels though she doesn’t agree with what they do.



Sadie is a generally good person. She’s nice to a vast majority of people. She likes to help out in anyway possible and she is very protective of the people she cares about especially since she lost her younger brother. Her protective streak knows no bounds especially when it comes to her younger sister and her friends and family. Her family comes first above anyone else and she would give her life to protect them from anything she believed they needed protecting from. That being said though Sadie generally believes most people to be good people like she is. She despite her age hasn’t seen how dark the world really is and lives in a false sense of security in which she believes everyone was born good and is good unless they prove her wrong. Its part of the reason she gets hurt so easily, because she’s too trusting and has a certain innocence believe in how the world is from how dark the world really and truly is.

Sadie is if anything a loyal person. Loyalty to her is almost more important than breathing. Its like the one thing in this world that everyone should be. At least that’s her belief. Sadie is definitely who will stand up for the people she cares for and shows her loyalty to them time and time again doing whatever she can for them out of simple loyalty. She will never turn her back on anyone who needs her help, but if its her friends, her family she is all in and won’t let anyone stop her from achieving what she set out to accomplish. Some would say she’s stubborn that way. And she is most certainly stubborn. Sadie isn’t one to back off when it comes to her ideal and her beliefs and her goals. If she believes in something strongly enough you better be able to prove why she shouldn’t otherwise you’ll find no hope of convincing her otherwise. Sadie is not easily convinced of things. Once she has an idea stuck in her head it stays there and no amount of trying to change her mind will help. Because she doesn’t change her mind. Not easily. Unless you have some visible sound proof, cold hard facts to back up what your trying to get her to belief she won’t believe you for a second. She doesn’t bend in her beliefs. Its her stubbornness that’s made her so good at being a protective older sister and family member. Her stubbornness allows her to make sure the people she cares about are safe and secure.



History:Sapphira Melinda Lazar was born as the eldest of three children to her two parents Roman and Joanna Lazar. Her Dad was a College Professor who taught English and her Mom a Literary Writer. Sadie herself had two younger siblings. A brother and a sister. Her sister Cassandra was the youngest being born four years after her. Her brother was the middle child being born two years after her. When Jonathan was born it as soon discovered that he had Hemophilia. She lived in a relatively normal family and grew up to love writing and learning in general just like her parents. Being the adventurous girl she is though when Sadie was about ten years old she decided to go swimming in a nearby river though and almost drowned only to be saved by a neighbor kid names Kayla who soon became her best friend and the two of them did everything.

It was when Sadie was about twelve years old and her younger brother Jonathan was ten. They had gone into town for some food when they had both noticed a little girl of about six steal some food. Sadly they weren’t the only ones. Right when she was about to be whipped Jonathan not agreeing with it being the sweet boy that he was decided to try and put a stop to it. Because Jonathan had tried to help though he ended with the same punishment as the girl instead of stopping it. That day was the day that Sadie watched her brother not only be whipped but be whipped to death because of his Hemophilia. She had ran home to her parents to tell them what happened. As guessed they were horrified and because of that they soon after joined the Southern Rebels ignoring Sadie’s pleads with them not to.

Six years later and the Selection letter came. Luckily her parents were both busy with work (having kept both their jobs while being rebels). She had opened the letter quickly and filled out everything that needed to be filled out before going into town on her own the complete the process. When she got home later she told her parents what she had done. They weren’t exactly happy with her but she refused to budge on her position believing this was the best way for her to change how things worked. So when she was finally announced as one of the 35 Selected girls she was thrilled.

╳Intelligent╳Audra is incredibly smart. She had always been the smartest out of her friends. Not only is she educationally smart, but she is witty and can easily come up with comebacks and making quick remarks back at someone is second hand nature to her.
╳Tenacious╳Audra isn't the type of person to follow others and go along with whatever they're doing. She does what she wants, even if it might not always be the best decision. Another thing about her is that once there's an idea in her head, there's no stopping her.
╳Confident╳Audra, well, she isn't one that has the title 'shy' or ever will. She is confident in herself and all of her friends, and people can't make her feel insecure about either of those. She will always be a leader, and most definitely not a follower.
╳Compassionate╳Despite all of her boyish confidence, Audra can be very compassionate towards others when they need the special attention, but not when they're faking it, of course. She is caring and loves making new friends. She is very empathetic and can easily put herself in other people's places.
╳Talented╳Though Audra knows next to nothing on how to sing or act, she had many other talents. She has been drawing and sketching since before she could even remember. She has a true talent, and surprises many with the fact that she has secretly been learning guitar during her spare time for years, and has grown quite good.

It was a warm, sunny May Day, the 24th. A beautiful baby girl was born to Aria and Carter Beaumont. She had large bright blue eyes, and was given the name Audra Myra, after her aunt. This was the couple's first child, and they were obviously new to this. They were always careful with her, but eventually got used to the day to day schedule. By the time Audra was a year old, her mother was 7 months pregnant and soon to be expecting another baby girl. After she was born, she was given the name Vivian, and meant the world to Audra. At only two years old, Audra was helping her mother by playing with Vivian and keeping her quiet so Aria could paint in peace. As the girls grew older, they both found a special talent-taking after their mother-of drawing and painting. They both helped each other, and became very talented with their mother's guidance. All three women were working and selling pieces by the time Audra was 10. That was a drastic year for the family, though. That was the year their father walked out on them. He didn't tell them anything, didn't even give the girls a goodbye. He left in the dead of night, leaving the girls I fend for themselves. Now, they were related artists, but most of their money had come from their father. After he left, the Beaumont family's conditions went down drastically the girls shared Audra's clothing and had to sell all of Vivian's, there was barely any food to keep them all fed, and there was practically no money for paint. All of their paintings had been sold and now they could only do sketches and drawings, because they had no paint. As soon as the selection was announced, their mother ordered them to fill out the applications and marched them down to get the picture taken and drop off the applications hoping one of them might possibly get the chance to have a better life than what they had now. Neither of them wanted to leave, but Audra couldn't say no. Especially after she was chosen.

Ɯяιттєη Ɗєѕcяιρтιση:
Rose stands at exactly five foot three with a pale skin complexion and weighs about one hundred and five pounds. Rose has long red hair down to her mid back and bright light green eyes. She has a slim delicate hourglass body shape and a button nose. She gets her red hair from both her parents and her light green eyes from her father. Her complexion comes from her mother as well as her height and body shape.

Ɗяєѕѕ SтуƖє:(view spoiler)

Rose is by far one of the nicest people anyone will ever meet. Roe loves helping people in anyway she can. Her kindness shows through everything she does or says. Rose doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She couldn’t be mean if she wanted to. She just doesn’t have it in her. Along with Rose’s kindness though comes her shyness. Rose has always been the quiet shy girl around people who doesn’t quite know how to act or what to say. She blushes quite easily when complimented as spends most of her time alone outside or reading a book because of her shyness.

Rose loves to learn. Despite being a five Rose is one of the most intelligent people in her class. She picks things up quickly and just learns all that she can. Were most girls her age would rather be shopping or looking at cute boys Rose would rather be sitting around in a library reading to gain all the knowledge she can.

Honest and Loyalty are two things Rose has an abundance of. Rose is one of the most loyal people in the world and if she’s loyal to you she will stick with you no matter what. Same with her honesty. Rose is honest about everything. She just doesn’t have it in her to lie because she’d feel too guilty for lying.

Beneath the quiet shy girl is a girl that if fun-loving and can be actually quite funny. She knows how to laugh and have one once she gets past the awkward shyness that holds her back. She loves jokes and she’ll even participate in a prank or two as long as its not harmful or mean. Of course being the shy quiet girl she is nobody ever suspects her of being apart of a prank except those closest to her.

Born on July 5th to a family of fives Rose was born to her two parents Bethany Taylor and Isaac Taylor and had an older brother who was 2 named Parker. Bethany Taylor nee Menso had grown up as a six waitressing until she met and married Isaac Taylor who was a five and worked as a photographer. After their marriage Rose’s mom became a classical musician performer with her love of playing the violin and piano. Being born the second and last child into a family of fives they didn’t struggle for food as much as some of the other fives did but they still did struggle.

Rose was four years old when it happened. Her mother drown in a nearby lake leaving her without a mother and very few concrete memories of her. Nobody knows why her mother was even near the lake let alone in it given that her mother had never seemed to have a desire to even be near the lake. Rose doesn’t remember the funeral very well, just that a bunch of people came and they were crying. She hadn’t really understood why they were crying but she cried too.

After her mother’s death Rose and her brother Isaac became extremely close to the point where it was Isaac who raised her more than her actual father did. He tried to raise the both of them though to the best of his ability, but at times it was a mother they needed, something they no longer had. Life for the family went on as relatively normal though for the next nine years.

Rose had started working at the age of ten as a singer and dancer performing any jobs she could get. Her brother Parker was the one who took over their mom’s job and played piano and violin. It was actually when she and her brother and father were on the way to a job that it happened. Her dad had been asked to come to the event because the newly wed couple wanted photographs of the event while they had wanted Rose and Parker to perform for them. The couple of threes had sent a car to pick them up. They had only gotten about halfway there when the crash happened. Rose still doesn’t know what happened. All she knows was that they were driving and then all the sudden the car was upside and she was surrounded by fire and she was the only one conscious. She remember being pulled out by a firefighter and dragged away from the car. Before anyone was able to go back for her father or brother though the car had exploded and she lost them. She was thirteen at the time. The driver had been pulled out right before she had been.

Shortly after her brother and father’s deaths she moved in with her aunt and uncle and her younger cousin Katie. Katie wasn’t exactly happy with the newest member of the family having been used to being an only child but after a few months they adjusted. Her life went on and then it came time for her Selection letter to come in the mail. On a whim she had filled out the form. Her cousin well excited for the Selection was slightly jealous she herself couldn’t be apart of it. But when Rose was picked for the Selection they all celebrated happily her cousin being the most excited.

♛║ The amount of work that Mira does isn't very visible, aside from her obvious fitness. She's not very athletically built, taking after her father in that regard; her more was the one built like a truck and still pretty to boot. She's among the fortunate ones of her province to be blessed with appearances that exceed their caste. Her blonde hair looks healthy on most days, eyes bright but still a little dimmed by lack of sleep, and lips sometimes chapped from very poorly dispersed water breaks. She may not look very confident, but she sure as hell is full of fire. To be frank, her ferocity only really shows through her work, which again isn't something you could pick up on by just looking at her.

There are two things she's always getting grief for: the gap in her teeth and the very obvious curves she has. She is usually in no mood to even talk to people who comment on those things in the way she usually gets comments. She's learned to just ignore it and internalize everything; she remembers it all.

[ ɪ ᴅ ɪ ᴏ s ʏ ɴ ᴀ ᴄ ʀ ᴀ s ɪ ᴇ s ] ××× ‟ daring · masculine · fickle · adaptable

♞║ Here's the thing: Mira has been doing crazy stunts for as long as she can remember. There has never been something forbidden to her that she wasn't willing to try. Sure, it may have resulted in a few broken bones, but that has never stopped her. If someone has a crazy, stupid idea, she's usually one of the people most into it. People might see her as a bit of brute because of this, but the masculinity comes from being surrounded by a house full of brothers and manual labor to the extreme. She's always been a bit of a tomboy, even when she finds herself forced into a skirt. Her masculinity sort of exceeds the usual "one of the guys" type of girl. She, actually, forgot she was a girl at one point in her life. She thought she'd been a boy until puberty kicked in, and even then she thought she was sick with something. She's always seen herself as more of the Prince Charming than the sweet princess.

Now, don't get her wrong, Mira can stick with a decision. It's just not often, or for long. She changes her mind like she changes her clothes, which happens to be often considering she's always doing something not so clean. She can't stick a decision for long, but not with all things. Somethings just keep her latched on to them, and she never lets go. Of course, most people don't see this past her never stable choices. But, she's actually quite adaptable. She learns to adjust to a situation for the better, to be more acquainted with her surroundings. You could say it's just an enhanced survival instinct that some people lack, but that's just one way of putting it.

▷ For as long as Mira can remember, she's been told that she has to work, and work hard. She's also been told to stay out of trouble, but she clearly doesn't listen to that. Hell, she doesn't really listen at all. The only thing she listens to is the drumming of her heart as she goes on to do something stupid. Her parents, they love her, but Mirabelle often finds that she may be disappointing them. She's seen and heard the way they discuss her.

She's the least feminine girl in her province, as the rumors go. She's all over the place, people say. She has no self-control, and will likely end up in some ditch someday; that's not even the worst one. Mira didn't quite like the way they spoke of her, but she didn't like the way it hit her family more. So, when she was twelve, she attempted to be just a bit more feminine.

It didn't work.

She back at her old ways again, only with her skirt tucked into her underwear and her blouse off to save it from stains. It horrified the other mothers, and more rumors spread like wild fire. Mira didn't notice anything different, aside from the fact that the other girls were looking at her funny, and the older boys, too. This was before puberty hit her like a ton of bricks, of course, and she was still stuck with the idea of being a boy like the rest of her friends.

▷ When it did hit, it hit hard. It was safe to say Mira was very confused when her chest felt heavier and her mother had to sit her down for a talk. She was even more confused when she tried climbing a tree and heard the boys screaming about blood. This confusion was furthered by their ogling her when she took her shirt off to swim. Mira, to say the least, was shocked when her parents had to break it to her.

It took some time, but she learned to change her ways by a fraction. No more skinny dipping, more clothing when she went out into the woods, and just a little more alone time a couple days of the month. She was settling into the idea of being a girl when her parents made the executive decision: she'd be getting married.

Now, getting married early isn't common, but it isn't a rarity. Everyone in her family had done so, and they would have likely paired with just about anyone if she hadn't proposed her own idea.

▷ The Selection was only two years away when she convinced her parents to get her registered for it. She didn't like the idea of the Selection any better, but it at least bought her some time. Mira would probably be better off there than married to just anyone that her parents thought would take care of her.

So, she was registered and they waited. Then, she was chosen. She didn't think that they'd allow her to be a Selected girl, because of her caste, but they overlooked it. And now she's screwed.

Caroline is always the optimist; thinking of all the ways something could go right. She almost always has a smile on her face, ready to try something new. Although she is quite cheerful, she's not hyper or crazy in any way. She's kind and calm, and believes everyone has at least a tiny bit of good in their hearts, and if they really didn't, they would start to after being around Caroline. She's determined she'll win the Selection, but not in a way where she'd do anything to win.

Caroline was born in a small apartment in Sota-caste five, by the way, to two low-paid yet talented singers. Since the arts were the way to make a living in caste five, Caroline's parents tried to get her into one form of entertainment or another, but their efforts were in vain, for Caroline was simply not interested in anything her parents showed her. She loved watching the Illean reports on the royal family on the television when she was young, and she would make dolls out of old sheet music of the royal family, adding one more person-Caroline the Princess. Her childhood pastimes may sound a little strange now, but when she was younger, there was nothing she'd rather do than play with those dolls. Even in recent times she's still daydreamed about being princess-and now even queen-of Illea. When applications for the Selection came around, Caroline couldn't wait to apply. Even though hundreds and hundreds of people from Sota were applying, she knew, somehow, that she would get picked.

I feel like she has no true weaknesses. Being an optimist and seeing the good in everyone can't be both a flaw and a strength. Also, being determined to win the Selection isn't really a flaw unless she would take extreme measures. I also don't see how being too sweet can be a weakness?

A B I T A B O U T H E R p e r s o n a l i t y;
Vanessa [though she prefers to be called by her middle name, 'Scarlett'] is a model. And unlike most models [referring to Celeste here], she is not stuck up at all. Nor is she arrogant, mean and stubborn. In fact, she despises people who are like that. Instead, she loves helping out. I mean, if she wasn't a two, then she would be the most perfect teacher as a four! Though most of the time, she would sneak out of her house to teach some poor eights, sevens and sixes but she would always get caught which leads to her parents almost hating her for being this type of person.
She is kind, lovely, ecstatic and always around to help others. One true lesson she learnt in her life is 'what goes around comes around'. This famous saying had taught her to respect people with the respect they deserve, and that respect will come back to you sooner or later.
Furthermore, Scarlett is extremely beautiful which is quite shocking since none of her parents share similar features. For example her delicate honey coloured eyes...her parents both have dull grey/blue eyes. Well, this is what people call in her family, 'A gift from God'. None of her siblings are as well natured as she is.
But the one negative thing about her is lying. She could lie to you about anything. Even the most serious of things. This is considered both good and bad. Good because you could trust her with even the most darkest of secrets. Bad because...who likes a person who lies? And because of that, she is less of a perfect-diva, more of a liar...
Furthermore, her other weakness is winning a fight. Especially a cuss/verbal one. Also, another weakness is her vulnerability ...she's very gullible

Vanessa grew up in the province of Clermont, Illea. Throughout her childhood, she was always told that as a two, she was considered more of a human than an eight would. But she was a very questioning girl. She would never be told something and be expected to believe it. She did her own bit of research. Tried to see what the life as an eight would be like. Sometimes, she would starve herself to see if she would survive. No. She would usually pass out or stop resisting the urge to eat and swallow a jug full of water. It was horrible. Ever since, she would sneak out at night and give out food to some of her friends who were sevens and eight. There was one friend of hers in particular. Clara. She was an eight and so far, she was the most best friend Vanessa had ever befriended. But her parents would never approve. Day and night, her parents would lecture her about the danger of people like Clara. But Vanessa would always ignore them. Sometimes, she would even threaten her family. Telling them that if they don't stop lecturing her, she would leave the house and go live with her. But it never works. That's one of the reasons why she had entered the Selection. To get away from her family. That, and of course the swoon-worthiness of Prince William...

Artemisia 'Sia' Pak ♛ born 17th September ┐
Tammins ; Caste 4 ♛ identifies as a female

(view spoiler)

apparent 19 years old ♛ actual 21 years old ┐
├ identifies demisexualcurrently crushing
└ stone ; sapphire ♛ flower ; morning - glory

[ ♛ Description ♛ ]

Artemisia Pak has brown hair which cascades in curls down to the small of her back. Her eyes are dark brown, almost black, a pretty shade of chocolate. She is 163cm tall and weighs 55kg. She is said to resemble the Korean-American actress, Arden Cho.

She is known to be practical and diligent, honest and genuine. Artemisia doesn’t see the point in faking who you are; after all, the best you can be is yourself. She doesn’t actively seek out opportunities, but when comes along, she goes with the flow and makes the best out of every situation. She also has a sharp sense of humour. However, this can mean that she is a little unpredictable and easily influenced. Secretly she is quite insecure, though, and may come off as a bit detached.

[ ♛ History ♛ ]

Like the rest of her family, Artemisia Pak is a Caste 4 and is a farmer. She is the third child of five and the oldest daughter of the family. Ever since she was little, Artemisia has worked hands on in the fields with the rest of her relatives. The childhood she led was a simple and happy one, albeit a bit unexciting — she had two elder brothers, one younger sister and one younger brother to keep her company. It was her grandmother who had suggested that she join the Selection, and, being curious about royal life as well as she just didn’t mind, she went with her grandmother’s suggestion. In the end, she was chosen to represent Tammins, so she’s going to make the best out of the situation she’s in.

And hopefully, if she does become royalty, she can invite her family to the royal palace as well. She's definitely going to milk as much out of her status as possible. With her entire family rooting for her at home, she's sure that she can get pretty far, if not become the next queen. If she doesn't, well, she'll just enjoy the ride until it's time for her to get off.

[ ♛ Relations ♛ ]

Artemisia gets along well with all her family members. However, she has yet to make friends at the Selection. As the RP progresses, this will be updated.

➸ Grandmother ; Gaia Pak ; 82 years
➸ Father ; Dionysus Pak ; 48 years
➸ Mother ; Juniper Pak nee Byun ; 47 years
➸ Brother ; Apollo Pak ; 25 years
➸ Brother ; Helios Pak ; 23 years
➸ Sister ; Anthea Pak ; 17 years
➸ Brother ; Petyr Pak ; 14 years

[ ♛ Other ♛ ]

Artemisia likes the sound of rain on a rooftop, and the quiet rumble of thunder in the distance. Her preferred music genre is jazz and folk, but cannot stand dubstep. She enjoys the taste of buttered corn on a cob, as well as hollandaise sauce, but she absolutely abhors any sort of fish. She is very good at identifying plants through texture, taste and smell, as well as knowing what medical properties they have. She is also good at tolerating high temperatures. However, she gets altitude sickness relatively easily, and her needlework isn’t very good since her fingers aren’t used to nimble work.

Elena can seem shy and introverted, but really, that's not her. If you're one of her best friends or her family, you'll know she's very loud and extroverted, but also smart and kind.
Many people have called Elena arrogant and spoiled, but those words really don't describe her. Mainly it was kids at school who are in lower castes that teased her, but that's not a problem anymore. Although she isn't spoiled, she did grow up in a very disciplined family, so that shows.

Elena has always been the baby of the family; her older sister Cecily was already five by the time Elena was born. For the first few years, until Elena was about three, Cecily loved her. After that, she just had no interest in Elena, and would shut the doors to her bedroom every time she tried to play with Cecily. Elena usually ended up having to play with herself, sitting on the playroom floor for hours having tea parties with her beloved stuffed animals.
When Elena was ten, her family moved to a larger house in a different area of Columbia, and Cecily and Elena got closer at this time, but they still weren't best friends by any means. Elena met her best friend, Ashley, a month later, and even today they are both close.
Eight years later, the Selection rolled around, and Elena couldn't wait. Her family wasn't interested in doing it for the fame and fortune, but that didn't mean Elena couldn't get excited about it. Ashley and Elena almost immediately applied, and although Ashley didn't get in, Elena did, and she simply couldn't wait for the day when she woukd go to Angeles.

So it's rather obvious right off the bat that Misumi is of New Asian descent. And well, that's true. Why, her parents were born and raised there after all, so of course she would appear as though she came from there as well. Misumi is a bit pale with dark hair and dark eyes, and when people are given a description such as this one, they aren't impressed. it's when you see the brown eyes that hold your attention and you see the flawless porcelain skin, and the silky dark hair. And every trait adds up to create the beautiful foreign beauty.

Misumi, or Sumi as she goes by often, if a very nice girl. She's polite and knows when to say things and when not to say things. Such as secrets. Some should be told, others kept. Sumi will still go along and tell you how she feels about everything and such, but only if she trusts you. Then she'll be herself and not the perfect daughter her family views her as. Sumi is actually rather rebellious, liking the rush of energy when breaking the rules and regulations, the bright smile on her face when she knows she's doing something she isn't supposed to be doing. It's just the way she likes her life. Misumi believes in soul mates and true love and all the stuff, believing that the entire universe works together to bring as many people together as possible. And she hopes its working to do the same for her.

Akiko and Wei Xiao were apart of New Asia's most richest and most powerful families. But they were tired of their lives, and wanted more. So, they moved to Illea. The Xiao's horrified to find out that in Illea they were put into the category of twos. Only second best. They wanted to be ones, to be royalty and have all the power. And that's when they learned about the selection. Where one girl and her family could become ones, and she could become the Queen. The challenge? Capture the heart of the prince.

The Xiao's were overjoyed and began trying for children right away. They had three sons before Illea received it's heir, Prince William. Now they really needed to have a daughter. About a year after Prince William's birth, the Xiao's had yet another son. They weren't really sure what to do, and cried a little when they learned the Queen was pregnant once more. But still, they tried once more. And sure enough did Mrs. Xiao become pregnant.

They had thought there was only one child. So when the doctors pulled out a baby boy, they nearly wept. Until the doctor then realized there was another baby. And when the second twin was delivered, and found it to be a girl, the Xiao's did week, of happiness.

Misumi was loved and spoiled from the very day she was born, and was brought up like the princess her family saw her as. Misumi was a child actress alongside her brother, Tadashi, and also a model, making herself known at a young age. Her life has been, well, perfect.

Her parents signed her up for the selection and were not surprised at all when she got in. now the plan was to get the prints have her she needed to. Sumi just isn't sure if that's what she wants.

( p ) iper has never felt comfortable in her own skin, a lost girl plagued by insecurities and anxiety, clinging to the hope that love will fix all of her broken pieces. She is a dreamer, one that prefers to live as far away as possible from other people, safe in her own head. Quiet and watchful, she doesn't socialize and rarely does one ever hear her melodic voice, never does she touch the hearts of others. And seldom will she ever let them touch hers. She is scared of getting close to someone, terrified of being judged by those she wants to impress... So she ostracizes herself, detaches herself and wraps her heart up so that no-one can dare hurt her. Unfortunately, however, she can still hurt herself. As her own worst critic, she beats herself up over saying something stupid and nearly cries when she messes up. A part of Piper, and not a small one, either, wants to venture out, wants to be spontaneous and wants to make friends... But an even bigger part holds her back. And so she turns to novels, escaping this reality for a better one.

( e ) ver since she was a little girl, Piper Perkins despised the spotlight -- hated having everyone's eyes on her. She never appreciated crowds or noisy get-togethers, either, preferring the quiet of solitude. And that was all fine, of course, until her parents had two more kids before Piper was even ten. And then came the banter of babies, the cacophony of younger siblings. It wasn't exactly ideal, of course, but Piper adapted. She learned how to perfect the art of escaping this world; discovered the beauty of slipping away from reality, which was helpful as bullies began to appear.

( a ) although, bullies isn't entirely correct. It was really just one girl, one queen bee that targeted Piper because of her stutter when she presented that day and the tears that spilled from her eyes when she dropped her favorite book in a puddle. Piper was an obvious choice for a bully, easy prey for a prime predator, and Evanna took complete advantage of this. She and her friends would pick on Piper every chance they got just because they enjoyed seeing her run from the room. They were ruthless for twelve year olds and it only got worse as puberty took hold, making Piper's body change. They made fun of her acne (which she grew out of by the time she was sixteen) and for her awkward, lanky limbs. They attacked all her insecurities which is why, even when she has so clearly grown out of them, she remains so critical of her appearance and her, well, everything. And she never told anyone about the bully, about her tormentor. She began to believe she was a burden and so she didn't want to be even more of one.

( i ) t was a little after her seventeenth birthday when her parents told her about the selection and how they wanted her to enlist for it. They told her that she deserved amazing opportunities out of life and that, try as she might, they noticed her change in demeanor. She was sulky, isolated, depressed. We aren't stupid, Pipes. We are, however, worried, honey. And what could Piper say to sway their course? When a parent is worried about their child, there isn't much that can be done to change their mind. So, reluctantly, Piper agreed. And while excitement bubbles in her tummy, nervousness stirs there as well. After all, how is quiet and anxiety-ridden Piper supposed to shine above so many others?

seventeen years

Ciara (view spoiler) could truly be described as beautiful, or in a comparison, just like a princess. She's always stood tall and regally, though she's truly just 5'5". Despite her smaller height, Ciara had always just looked tall. Along with her height, she weighs about 120 lbs, 122 to be exact. Her hair, which she has always kept long, falls in wavy blonde locks, occasionally seeming to be tinted red in the sun. To match her practically perfect hair, she has gorgeous green hazel eyes, sometimes seeming more one than the other. She's never thought of herself as considered herself as "beautiful", though. No. That's what fairytale princess were; that's what real princesses were. She may act like one of the inside, but she couldn't possibly look like one. Being a Three, Ciara has always been more than a bit of a bookworm, which meant that she really didn't pay much attention to her clothing. She shooed for casual but nice things, and just threw on whatever looked semi-presentable in her eyes.

Ciara has always tried to be the best person she could ever be: kind, caring, compassionate, confidant, all of it. But of course, no one is perfect. Except, it seems, for Ella. Ciara had been a sweet, bubbly little girl, with no cares in the world unti lher sister came along. And suddenly, she wasn't important. She wasn't perfect; wasn't the center of attention. And like any normal person would, she was jealous. Jealous of Ella for taking her parents. Taking her attention. Being absolutely perfect and showing all of Ciara's flaws whenever she was around. The only person Ciara had ever really been able to stay herself around was Aiden, but even that changed slightly over the past year. Ciara's fatal flaw is most certainly conformity. She's terrified of rejection, therefore has kept herself from putting herself out there too much. She basically runs on the opinions of others, which is one of the worst things you could be when you become a Selected. There will always be someone hating on you, and Ciara always ends up keeping that opinion in mind.

The night a Three and a Six met was the night their lives would change forever. Cassidy Acosta was working the night of a party, only a twenty-two year old young woman. Henry Moore, the son of the famous Moore lawyers, was the main cause of the event. He was engaged to some Two his parents had set him up with; a woman he despised. By midnight, the party seemed to have just started and everyone was too drunk to notice Henry slip away. Enter Cassidy, and you have a basic love story set. Love at first sight, but they can't possibly be together. For a normal prince and princess, that is. That night changed their lives; they were gone before the sun had come up the next day. The pair ran away and got married on their own, the only people at the wedding were themselves and the priest. The new young Moore couple settled down in Kent, a province far enough away from their families that they wouldn't have to confront them about the topic that would obviously be forbidden.

September 4th, one of the best days in Cassidy and Henry's lives. It was an early fall day, only a slight breeze rather than the forceful autumn ones that usually arrive in September. The leaves had just begun to change, as well, though little had fallen, leaving a bright landscape of oranges and reds and even pinks surrounding their neighborhood. Ciara Eliza Moore (view spoiler) came late in the afternoon, around 6:00, and hasn't even screamed. She acted like such a perfect child even from early on. Though she wasn't; there was no such thing as a perfect child. Ciara was an adorable baby, always seeming to be laughing or chattering to herself in baby talk, or playing with toys or her mother or father. She was never one to want to be the center of attention, now that she had it. For a whole two years, it was all about Ciara, but now that it was going to be focused on someone else, Ciara almost…missed it.

Ciara watched in amazement and delight as her mommy's tummy grew bigger and bigger, until it was time. Ciara had desperately wanted to go to the hospital with her parents, but instead was left at home with neighbors who had moved in recently, the Branwells. Apparently, Ciara learned later on, an old friend of her mother's. The neighbors were exceptionally nice to Ciara, for they only had one child as well, who grew quite lonely at times. Aiden Branwell, the three year old boy to the Branwell couple. The two hadn't met yet, but since Ciara was staying with them for a few days, they were thrown into the same house for the first time together, and no one knew what would happen. Thankfully, it was just what the two couples had hoped for. By the end of Ciara's first day, it was as if the two had known each other as long as their parents had known each other. They acted like brother and sister, at least in Ciara's mind what brothers and sisters acted like, just without as much fighting. They spent the entire week playing together and soon becoming best friends, until she was finally taken back home to meet her new little sister.

Her name was Ella Joy Acosta, and she basically was the perfect child. She was cuter than anyone else could be, including Ciara. Both of her parents doted upon her every need, though at the beginning, they made sure Ciara was included in everything. A few years had passed, and with each month passing, Ciara grew more and more forgotten. She was never left alone or anything like that, but everything about Ella was just...better, more important. She ended up spending most of her time with her best friend in the world, Aiden. She had even convinced her parents to move her room to the one with the window opposite of his, so they could act like spies late at night when they were rebels and refused to go to bed. Their parents always acted like they were going to fall in love and get married, but Ciara didn't understand that at the young age of eight. He was Aiden! They couldn't kiss and other "icky" stuff like that. But even Ciara was to surprise herself sometime in the next few years.

Fifteen years old, Ciara had grown almost completely into her body, past that awkward stage where everything just feels off. She really was quite beautiful, but everyone could tell Ella was just going to be so much prettier, even though she was only twelve at the time. She and Aiden, now sixteen, were still awfully close for a boy and a girl at that age, for most usually leave their opposite gender friends at a younger age. But no, they were as close as they had been more than a decade ago, possibly even more. Until one night, it happened. Quite possibly the best night in Ciara's life. It was just a normal night, they were hanging out in August, making the most of their little time before school began again, sitting on the small roof ledge that hung just under Aiden's bedroom window. The two had been climbing out there since they were seven to be "explorers", and the habit had stuck. But even now, something was different. Ciara couldn't tell until it happen, but she knew something was up with Aiden. She only needed one glance at him to know something was wrong at this point. She was about to leave, climb across the tree to her window, like she'd been doing naturally for years, when he did it. They had both stood up -Aiden unfairly tall, while she was still only about 5'3- and he pulled her close to him and kissed her. Actually kissed her. Not some wimpy little peck on the cheek or something. What could she do? This was her first kiss, but she ruined it herself. She didn't kiss him back, she moved away, slightly stunned, and crawled across the tree and into her window, closing it before he could follow her.

Unfortunately, Ciara felt she had embarrassed herself so much she avoided Aiden for weeks, not sure what to do. Had she really lost her best friend because of a stupid kiss? It wasn't until her birthday that Aiden had first come to talk to her. Climbed right into her window and waited until she was home, a small present in his hand. He felt as if he had ruined everything between them, but all he wanted was his best friend back. Ciara came home, exhausted from another day full of school and homework and organizations to lead. She honestly wasn't even surprised Aiden had come to see her. She tried to get him to leave, but he refused unti they figured things out. Absolutely refused to leave. When she realized that maybe not everything was completely ruined, she was the one who kissed him.

There's not much to Ciara's story other than the usual school, and boy and family drama. She dated Aiden for about a year before he was drafted as a guard, sent to who knew where. Ciara had signed up for the selection, glad Ella was only a few months too young to enter. Somehow she won, who knew that could ever happen? All she was really hoping for was that maybe, just maybe, there was a small chance that Aiden had been sent to the palace rather than some foriegn country, possibly to never come home again.

Just one thing. Her mother would have to be a Two, so she couldn't be a marine biologist. Also, an owner of a hotel chain would be a Four.

It's a bit obvious that Aria is rather gorgeous, what with her glowing fair skin and soft blonde hair. A beauty with green eyes and a pale pink lips, and a smile that pressures you to smile back. Aria is about average height for a woman along with an average week. She has a slim build in a voice that is a bit more more on the low side but still full of character. She is unique, in her own little way.
▪ height ; 5'5"

The mind of a five-year-old, that's what Aria has. It's all fun and games twenty-four seven. She loves having fun and competition, but the second someone is hurt she may just be the nicest person in the world. Aria has a good sense of humor, always making jokes and the time is right and messing with people. After the incident, Aria has become rather distrusting and very mindful of her actions. Everything from putting a pencil down to leaving somewhere was covered. Now you can't even tell when she was in the room.

It wasn't always Aria. In fact, it's only been Aria for a year or two. It used to be Clara Marie Rosewood. She was born a poor little six to a poor little maid who had fallen for a guard. They were going to get married until the guard died in a rebel attack. Clara was cared for as much as her mother could spare the time. But she generally raised herself. As a child, she was a housekeeper, offering anyone a cleaning of their entire house, for a cheap price. Some people were nice enough to force on more money to the price. Clara lived a simple life, her body growing used to the hunger and in turn her stomach shrinking, her body thinning. But she never lost the spark in her bright green eyes.

She became a palace maid at the age of twelve and worked alongside her mother for a year before she died of a sickness. It was a tough time in her life then, but she distracted herself with her work. She was alone, but she lived in the palace and made the royal family her number one priority. And then she met the Prince. The second Prince, to be exact. His name was Xavier, and boy was he attractive. They spoke a bit at first, just small conversations here and there, but then they were sneaking around. Hanging out more often in secret, Clara fell in love with the kind Prince. They began to secretly date, and life only got better. Until, some servant found out. Clara must've not covered up her tracks well enough, and before she knew it the entire palace knew. She was summoned to the Queen, who fired her and then put her in the dungeons, as she would be put to death. A fellow servant let her out, feeling horrible. They told her to run, to run as far as she possibly could. And she did.

It was about one in the morning, pouring rain, and there was a young girl dressed in a maid's uniform, running down the street when she nearly got hit by a car. The car, of the Websters. Mr. Webster exited the car immediately and asked the poor girl if she was alright. But Clara wasn't sure, she was so confused, and she couldn't think straight. She fainted. The next morning Clara awoke in a stranger's room. There were two people in that room, each of them sitting at a desk and writing. After a brief conversation, Clara insisted she left at once. But they wouldn't let her leave. She had nowhere to go after all.

Clara became Aria Webster. They had a daughter who recently died and hadn't looked too different anyway. She was the same age and they hadn't yet filed her death, so it wasn't official. So she became Aria Webster, caste three. She went from caste six to a momentarily caste eight, and now a caste three. She was lucky, quite possibly one of the luckiest people in the world.

Aria got used to the lifestyle after a while, her new mother was a teacher and her new father was an architect. Aria was interested in her father's work, liking architecture and all the building he designed. He passed onto her some books about it and she began to study architecture. And then, well, the selection came around. Honestly, it was her parent's idea to go along and join. Why did she agree, she honestly had no clue. But it's too late now.

no, you need to change her father's occupation to the occupation of a two, or else she would be a four.
