Silken Petal Upon the Wind
Alternate Names: Milisende, Milli, Millie
Power Source: Lunar Exalted, Changing Moon Caste.
Description: Millie is 5' 5", with a petite and curvaceous build that many would consider very attractive, perhaps even exceptionally so. Her long straight hair is a golden color, lustrous and of a silky texture. Her eyes are a bright and vivid green. Her body is covered in a set of elaborate tattoos made of moonsilver. These lines and designs whirl and trace along her the curves of her body.
NOTE: Milli's Tell and tattoos are normally not visible to normal people. A Tell is a characteristic shared between all of a Lunar's forms. Milli's Tell are her ears and tail, which come from her spirit shape, a white forest dog. This is how Milli looks to someone able to see past her ability to hide them (sans clothing to display tattoos):
Backstory: Milisende is from Creation, a world in which certain individuals have been bestowed with incredible powers by the gods, divine mantles known as Exaltations. Telling the full story of Creation here, even in summary, would be a bit much, so the curious are directed to purchase the Exalted book for the full story. It's worth it, trust me.
Milisende hails from a city noted for it's byzantine and complicated politics, a local gambit entertained by the Realm as it kept the local nobility occupied and for the most part pacified.
These political power games turned the courts and palaces of the city into a bloody arena of cloak and dagger schemes. Ties of blood mattered not in this place; brother schemed against brother as both plotted the overthrow of their father, while sisters and cousins maneuvered about, trying to find the best position and the best brother to ally with. Betrayal was frequent, swift, and brutal, and the coups were bloody and without mercy.
When she was just 14, Milisende had to stand before her victorious cousin and tell him why he should let her live, knowing what she knew. He could have executed her upon a whim. A single errant syllable, an error in posture or procedure, a slip of courtesy, and he could have ended her with a lazy wave of his hand.
But somehow, she managed to convince him to spare her. And that was her feat of survival. In a court of deadly intrigue and massacre, she managed to survive and even flourish despite the odds stacked against her. But she wasn't content to play the games of the court. She aspired to something higher. She hated not being able to trust, hated having to keep her guard up and second guess the words of her "friends" and family. She wanted to be able to live like a normal person, and not like a constantly scheming noblewoman.
And then she suddenly Exalted. Not exactly what she wanted, and the other nobles were more than willing to oust the Anethma and summon a Wyld Hunt to take care of their rival. Unfamiliar with her powers, she couldn't hope to defeat or evade the Dragon Blooded when they came.
She was very lucky when an extremely angry Full Moon Lunar Elder showed up and slaughtered the hunt to a man. His name was Tooth-Howl, and after he sated his blood lust on the Dragon Blooded, he carried off Milisende to properly instruct her as to her destiny.
Tooth-Howl was a Sun King Seneschal, and as he initiated Milisende into the Silver Pact (and re-christened her Silken Petal Upon the Wind) he also indoctrinated her into the almost cult like worship of the Solar Exalted. Tooth-Howl was the first person Milisende felt she could trust, and soon she was a fervently believed that she was not a whole person, that she was only half of a being that would only be complete after she found her Solar Mate.
Her tutelage under Tooth-Howl was rather short; he soon set off in search of his own Mate, bidding Millisende to seek out hers.
