Neridia - Hiems Mansion by AdenChan Neridia - Hiems Mansion by AdenChan
I FINALLY FINISHED ;A: This took forever to make X_x

I SPELT HER NAME WRONG ON THE FORM THING. *headdesk* It's not Neirida, it's Neridia. Sorry 'bout that ^^;

Anywho, this is Neridia, my OC for the amaaaaazing group :iconhiems-mansion: :3
_____________________
Basic Information
Name: Neridia
Age: Physically 14-15, though in reality she is around 112.
Height: 5'6"
Species: Ahti

Ahti are a type of water demon located mainly in the country of Finland and surrounding countries. They are named after the Finnish god of depths and fish in mythology. Ahti have two forms - their natural one, which is when they have a fish tail, webbed hands, and extra set of eyelids and shark-like teeth. The one they have on land is slightly more humanoid.

The Ahti are known to lure lost travellers into their own body of water (Generally a pond, swamp or lake) before devouring them and draining the blood into the body of water, which they can swim in to heal. Ahti are generally very solitary and can survive on very little food, though they are known to drink almost constantly. They are known for their curiosity and skills in manipulation.

Personal Background
Likes: Spicy things, swimming, going barefoot, green tea, reading detective novels, writing, teasing people, spying, trying new foods, watching other people do dramatic things

Dislikes: Wearing shoes, bright colors, anything sweet, seafood, 'modern' music, mosquitoes, romance novels, cats, bedhead, being hot

Fears: Heights, fire, large cats, boats, flying in any way shape of form

Goals: To learn more about the world, the way people think and different creatures

Personality: Neridia is an instinctively curious person. She spent the majority of her life in her pond, never meeting anyone except for the unfortunate human to wonder to far into her lands. She's rather innocent to certain things, especially of the perverted nature, and tends to be oblivious. She enjoys watching people interact, though tends to be a little awkward when it comes to socializing personally. She violently hates being referred to as a fish, but despite that seeing someone eat seafood makes her want to vomit. She's clumsy sometimes when walking, but is very graceful in the water. She has a habit of asking personal questions and being blunt to the point of rudeness due to her lack of knowledge in social customs. She gets annoyed sometimes, but it's rare for her to be actually mad about something. Her 'default' mood is inquisitive.
_________________
History: Neridia was born a twin, which is seen as a bad omen to the Ahti. Since she was the youngest and smallest, her parents left her at the lake where she was born to die, taking her older sister with her and leaving. Neridia doesn't know this, and against all odds managed to survive anyway.

The majority of her childhood years were spent in her "demonic" form in the water, and she often amused herself through conversations with fish and playing games with herself. She was physically 8 when she first saw a human - it was a young man that wondered too close to her pond. Instinctively, she lured him close until she grabbed him and dragged him to the bottom of the pond until he drowned. She devoured his flesh and as the blood drained into the water, she swam around and felt herself becoming stronger. Her hair grew nearly twice it's length, she grew slightly taller, and realized she could even put small animals that lived around the pond into a small trance. Each time she devoured a human she changed a bit, grew a little more powerful, but as she grew she noticed something.

She was lonely. Fish weren't truly company and she was growing up. And even worse than that, she was bored. So, daringly, she did what no Ahti had ever done - left their homelands to explore. For the first two months it was very difficult - she didn't realize how strange she looked to the humans and how they feared her appearance, even in it's humanoid state. Unwilling to return home, Neridia began spying on a family that lived rather isolate,d learning about human customs. But what drew her in was the strange things they had - books. Unable to resist, she knicked them and over the course of a human year, forced herself to learn to read and write the language.

She still spent time travelling, and on one of her travels she heard the whisper of a mysterious place. A mansion, filled with strange, exotic people, and the curious creature she is, she couldn't resit.

Not one bit.


Roleplay Information
Chatroom Availability: I'm on DeviantART almost everyday, unless certain things keep me off ^^ I'm always on on the weekends, and if not everyday, then everyday.
IM Availability: Well I have skype, and if I have internet access I can use it ^^


Script Sample: Neridia: *Watches the humans through slightly lidded eyes, resting her chin the the palm on her webbed hand. Even out of the water as she had been for many moons, her skin always felt slightly damp to the touch. Sometimes, she couldn't help but wonder why that was... Perks up slightly as the human, the female one with the weird brownish hair stands up, and reaches for the cieling letting out a strange noise. Curiously, her eyebrows furrow before her expression changes into a determined one. She reaches up as far as she can to the starry sky* Uh-ahhhhhh-er. *Nods sharply to herself, slightly smug. This was much easier then she'd thought it'd be.*

Paragraph Sample: Neridia relished in the cool, relaxing sensation of the water caressing her skin. She moved her webbed hand slowly, watching with that same sense of awe she always had as a ring of ripple formed. With a content sigh and a flick of her powerful tail she propelled herself deep into the dark, sunless depths of the pond. Despite the lack of light, everything seemed to have a certain glow to it. It was crystal clear. Neridia watched as a large catfish - around seven feet - swam passed her. Grinning slightly, she blew a stream of bubbles at it, laughing brightly as it swam away in fright.

Neridia: *Tilts head slightly before pulling a notebook with a dark blue cover out of seemingly nowhere and flicking through it quickly with just her nails, knowing the paper would stick to her damp skin. Her eyes trail over the page before she nods to herself and shuts the book with a snap.* Thank you! And you have animal ears!

I'm rather good at earth and life magic. *she takes a seed out of her bag* Hmmm...Oh I got it *her hands glow green and the seed turns into a blue flower ((like this [link])) and hands it to Neridia* This reminded me of you, its a blue water lily. I think they are rather pretty.

I've never heard anyone talk like that before. *Speaks while thumbing through the pages with her nails, knowing the pages would stick to her mildly damp skin. She holds the book out to candle.* I write everything I learn here! *The pages are filled with various things on how different people act, their habits, and things she doesn't understand which are underlined in red.*
