Fern is a character request for the Hellebore Company (Ignis) faction with the faceclaim of ENMA from HoloEN. A list of points in the character can be found below.
Fern can be her first name or last name. The other name is up for discussion.
The relationship between Fern and Erytheia is one that can be likened to Batman and Alfred - while Erytheia handles the big movements, Fern is in charge of taking care of the day to day. A previously traumatic event that both were involved in together where Erytheia personally saved Fern is the beginning of this relationship, the details of which are up to whichever player decides to take on this character.
Background wise, Fern was born in Argus and was forced to fend for herself from a young age. She befriended Erytheia when she was studying at Sanctum across the period of a few years. After going through the traumatic event mentioned above and moving to the capital in her search for greener pastures, Fern would transfer into the Hellebore Company after Erytheia's Semblance induced injury and begin work as her aide while she was in the hospital undergoing therapy. This background is mostly negotiable - it can be replaced in most part as long as it retains Fern's initial hardship and subsequent success through hard work, and that she ends up befriending Erytheia and believing in her to the point of joining her side.
Personality-wise, I want Fern to have elements of ruthlessness and cynicism within her, to contrast against Erytheia's more kind and soft demeanor. She also functions as a sort of ice bucket for Erytheia - when the other woman is being too optimistic, Fern is the one with the worldly experience to bring her back to reality. She should also be tiredly professional for any interaction that takes place in her official capacity as Erytheia's aide. When in private with Erytheia or with her friends or family, I see her as having a tendency to dryly deadpan with a high level of snark. Basically, the Knight in Sour Armor trope. How this is executed is up to the individual.
Fern's focus is corporate based, mostly with regards to paper shuffling to hide their trails. She avoids combat where possible, but has her Aura and Semblance unlocked, and training with assault weapons, pistols, and her sword. I want something cool related to said sword as part of her Semblance, but that's pretty much it.
For this ad, I will be putting 125 XP from my Storyteller account, and 125 XP from this account, which means that this character starts with a bonus of 250 XP in addition to the unaffiliated template.
