The Body


Height: 5'2"
Body Type: petite
Hair Color: ash brown
Eye Color: blue

Appearance:
Small. Smaller. Smallest sister. Quite certain that her brothers took the extra measure of height their mother had meant for her, Starling is rather frustrated by her short stature. Especially paired as it is with a lithe body. Boyish, she's been called rather insultingly. Often mistaken for a child rather than a woman grown. A sweet, heart shaped face. Delicate features nearly overrun by thick waves of hair. She is certainly the darling of the trio.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 12/15pts
Craft Healing
Craft Brews
Calming Spells
Craft Weaknesses: Healing Webs. Diagnostic Sight. Telekinetic Surgery.

Personality:
A confusing combination. Worldly naive girl. Starling can't help but be both. Circumstances couldn't leave her any other way. Aware that the world if full of things. Sex. Drugs. Death. That all of them can be bought for a price. And most people too. But removed from it. Because who would visit any of these things on such a girl? Few, if any. Not with the brothers she has.

Things that happen to other people (even if these things may happen by the hands of one of her brothers). Removed from Starling herself. Aware, but not really understanding the reality. Sheltered in a way, because all the struggles were over by the time she was grown. Starling has never had to fight for what she's wanted, merely ask. Spoiled, petted girl child. All she had to do was keep those around her happy. And most of her family was rather easy to please. Everyone else didn't matter so much.

Not quite as easily fooled as her looks would have people assume. Nor as wicked as the company she keeps would imply. Starling is skeptical smiles, and a shy heart. Nice enough, but stubborn when she needs to be. Tolerant but well tuned to temper, but quick to try and disperse it when it rises. Rolling eyes, and frustrated backtalk. And plenty of pouting, when it suits her.


The Backstory


Family:
  • Linnet | Mother | Yellow to Tiger Eye witch
  • Kite|  Brother | Summer sky to Opal Warlord Prince
  • Peregrin |  Brother | Sapphire to Ebon-gray Warlord

History:
Favorite sister. Only daughter. Starling the darling. She hardly walked her first two years of life. Tried hard to learn but was still wobbling rather badly at three. Slower still to talk. Too easy to have what she wanted by other means, no need to ask. Small, pink fingers pointing at the world. Screeching when what was wanted wasn't had. Screeching when her brothers were too loud or too rough. Shy giggles and big crocodile tears when confronted with too friendly strangers.

Life was easy.

No father, but why would she need one when she had two older brothers and a more than capable mother? Knew enough to know too much. Certain she had all the knowledge in the world by the time it was her turn to get a Jewel. Curious what she would come away with. Secretly hopeful for something soul stirring too. There had been gossip about her brother. But then, both of them often stirred up whispers.

Nothing dramatic for Starling. She had enough drama on her own. A nice Tiger Eye. More orange than brown. Smooth oval Jewel, just the right size to sit in her cupped hands. No caste either. It made her ashamed, though Starling couldn't say why. Her mother was a witch. But Starling didn't want to be her mother. Loved her dearly, but did not want to be her.

So she begged an apprenticeship under the local healer. Healers were useful! Starling wanted to be useful too. And not in the way her mother was useful. Or her brothers. So much easier for boys. Always born something should they have Jewels. Full of purpose. Starling had to make her own. The only thing she ever worked for. Healing craft.

Years of training while her brothers managed to make themselves outlaws. Sneaking enough home so that Linnet did not have to be a lover unless she wished too. Starling was glad. She never had liked the racket. Missed her brothers while they were gone but enjoyed the peace too. Wrote them long letters full of whining that she never posted, because she had no where to send them. Tucked them under pillows to wait. Along with lists of bullies and brats she wanted rescuing from.

Practiced on them when they came home. Clever with calming spells just to ruin their tempers so she could stand them. Preening for her favorite boys, her brothers. Chasing Kite in maturity, closest to her age for all he was the eldest. The secret, favored brother, with the better temperament.

Made her Offering at twenty while they were off doing Mother Night only knew what. And she probably didn't want to know, their dark mother. A Summer-sky Jewel to match her eyes. So proud when they came home. She was ready. Her training mostly complete. Her Jewel of rank good enough, surely, to come on the ship.
