• Father: Aaron Knighte. He is Terra's biological father, but they don't really get along that well. • Step-Mother: Anastasia Knighte. She is horrible to Terra, but of course she only reveals her true colours when Aaron is not around. • Step-Brother: Liam Knighte. He is Terra's ten year old sister. And, like his mother, he is an absolute monster to Terra. He has nicknamed her 'Terror'.
Terra's history isn't particularly bad, but it's not good either. It started off okay. Terra would go to school, she had loads of friends, and then she could come home to a loving father who spent most of his attention on his only daughter. But this perfect life was torn apart once Aaron met Anastasia. They only dated for a few months before getting married. And as soon as they were married Anastasia moved in with her son Liam. It was after that when things went downhill. Aaron started spending his attention on Liam, and Terra was slowly pushed to the background. It got to the point where she didn't even get to speak to her father on a daily basis. Instead Anastasia criticized her and Aaron tormented her. Pretty soon Terra was sick of it. She ran away from that house and was subconsciously guided to Camp Half-Blood.
Terra is, overall, quite a pretty girl. One if her more noticeable features is her milk pale skin. Terra isn't very fond of the sun and that's the main reason why she's so pale. Thanks to her sun avoidance Terra hasn't tanned or collected any freckles over the years. Her skin is also completely free of scars. Terra has a slender frame that would probably be described as willowy. By just because she's thin doesn't mean that she is weak. Terra is quite strong for her age and stature, her muscles just aren't very visible. Terra is quite tall, standing at 5'11". She is also quite lightweight naturally.
Terra has deep blue eyes. Not as dark as the night, but fairly close. These eyes never seem to portray much emotion. Sometimes they show none at all. This is just part of Terra's exterior though. By she likes to keep her feelings to herself, so her closed off eyes work fine for her. Terra's lips are a fairly light pink in colour. They're not incredibly pale, but light enough. They are also tipping towards the thinner side if the scale. Terra's nose is relatively slender and is of average length. Her face is pretty much the shape of an oval that comes to a sligt point at the bottom.
And finally, Terra's hair. It is a shocking contrast to her skin. Her hair is a bright mane of orangey-red. It flows down her shoulders to stop at the bottom of her shoulder blades. This coppery waterfall is relatively straight, you couldn't even call it wavy. Terra usually just leaves it outright cascade down her back like a fiery rush of water. Her eyebrows are the exact same shade as the rest of her hair. They are on the thinner side and arch elegantly.
Terra used to be the sweetest girl out there. You could heap a whole lot of worries and insults onto her and she would just laugh it off. She never got angry or annoyed. Basically, she was the perfect person. Of course, that was then and this is now.
Being endlessly taunted 24/7 hardens a person. And it has hardened Terra a whole heap. She has built up a tough exterior. This shell is the Terra most people now and kind of love. It really depends who you are, and how you meet Terra. The outside Terra is quite fond of partying. She's a terrible flirt and can even be described as sexy at times. She's also relatively sarcastic in her sense of humour and in everyday life. She likes to act that she doesn't care about things when she really does. She's relatively quiet in large groups, and she's not the loudest person in small gatherings either. Terra is generally quite pleasant. She knows how to keep her mouth shut and she understands when people just don't want to talk.
The real Terra is basically the same as her exterior. She's less sarcastic though, and she's sweeter. The real Terra shows when she cares about something. As soon as you make friends with Terra you'll start to see the inside her. Since it isn't very hard to make friends with this daughter of Nyx (although she won't entirely trust someone for a while) quite a few people have seen this softer side of her personality.
Terra is kind of selfish, and she's pretty stubborn too
★Night Vision: Terra can see perfectly in the dark. To her it just looks like it's a cloudy day. ★Shadow Bending: Terra can manipulate shadows and bend them to her will, even in the day. She's pretty good at it. So far she can hold someone down with her shadows and create shapes with them. She especially enjoys making animals. Terra can engulf someone in shadows, effectively making them blind. But this tires her out a lot, so she can't do anything else in the day after doing this.
Terra has a long and elegant celestial bronze sword. It turns into a simple but pretty ring that always sits on her middle finer on her left hand. She has name it Terror, so that whenever she uses it she can be bitter enough to kill her opponent.
Name: Iulia Yonescu (pronounced Yoo-lee-ah Yo-ness-co) Nicknames:None Age: 18 Birthday: 11 February Godly Parent: Terpsichore Mortal Family: Adrian Yonescu - Father Claimed or Unclaimed: Claimed
Year-Round or Summer Camper: Year-Round Years at Camp: 3 History: As you may have guessed Iulia and her father are not American. Adrian is actually a full blooded Romanian, as were his parents and their parents etc. The Yonescu family have always lived in Romania, marrying within their culture and their country. Adrian was the first Yonescu to have a child with a non-Romanian. His parents were outraged; they kicked him out of the house. So Adrian moved to America as Terpsichore had told him she resided there in New York. He did t have any trouble getting there with his daughter; the trouble started after they arrived. At first everything seemed fine. Adrian found stood job that payed well and he could work at home to spend time with his daughter. Sadly the company started going downhill pretty soon after Adrian joined them. You know the saying, last hired first fired. Adrian was shocked and hurt when he was sacked. He went it to a pub and got drunk before going on a maddened rampage. He actually ended up killing somebody. Naturally the police caught him and sent him off to jail. Nobody knew that this crazy man had a daughter, so nobody came for Iulia. Luckily Terpsichore was watching over her daughter. She made sure a kindly neighbour saw the open door of the house and went inside to investigate. This neighbour found baby Iulia. She immediately tooke her to social services, where they found who her father was. Iulia was adopted pretty quickly, she was a very charming child. The family who adopted her were very rich. They gave her everything she wanted, and they knew about the Gods. The adoptive father actually had a son of Athena before he met his wife, so when Iulia reported a strange man with horns hanging around near her school he had to send her off to Camp Half-Blood. Iulia was 15 then. Now, three years later, she still visits her adoptive family when she can. Her father has not contacted her at all, probably because he doesn't know where she is. Iulia hasn't tried to contact him either; she's embarrassed by him and his actions.
Personality: Iulia is usually a fairly pleasant girl. She’s very down-to-earth and doesn’t really believe in destiny or fate. She feels that you carve your own way in life; it hasn’t been carved before you were even born. She is also a strong believer in first impressions. If somebody is mean or rude to her when they first meet then Iulia marks them down as somebody she doesn’t like. Virtually nothing will change her mind after that. This belief in first impressions also works vice-versa. Iulia always tries to make a good first impression. She is polite at first, but quickly warms up if the person is nice to her. Once your friends with Iulia (which is particularly hard to do) she is very kind and caring. She’s always open for a laugh. One problem with Iulia is she’s not very good at comforting people if they’re upset. She just feels really awkward and doesn’t know what to say. There’s also the bad side to Iulia. The side you see when you make a bad first impression or anger Iulia. When you only annoy her she just makes a cutting remark and walks away. That’s pretty much the same when you make a bad first impression. But when you anger Iulia, or hurt one of her friends, then you’d better watch out. Iulia can be very unpleasant when she wants. Fatal Flaw: Iulia judges someone the first time they meet, and she won’t change her mind about them unless something drastic happens Likes: Dancing, shopping, chocolate Dislikes: Spiders, people who annoy her, washing machines
Physical Description: Iulia is a beautiful girl, seriously. People often mistake her for a daughter of Aphrodite because of her looks and her love for shopping. Her skin is fairly pale, but thanks to all the time spent at Camp she can sometimes call it 'fair'. This lightly coloured skin is pretty much flawless since Iulia takes very good care of it. She is a bit vain and tries her hardest to always look her best. Anyway, Iulia's face is rather pretty. She has eyes that are slightly strange. They change daily, depending on the light. For instance, in the morning of a day her eyes could be a greeny colour with a bit of brown around the pupil. Then in the night of that day they could have changed to a bluey-grey colour. That's another reason why people assume she's a daughter of Aphrodite. Iulia has average size ears and nose. Her lips are a pale shade of pink naturally, although Iulia likes to darken it lightly with lip gloss. She has long black eyelashes that do not need any darkening. Her eyebrows are of an average thickness and are slightly lighter than the rest of her hair. Iulia's hair is brown; the shade depends on the light. If it is in direct sunlight than it looks to be an average shade of brown. If it's not in direct sunlight it looks dark brown and at night it appears black. Iulia's hair is of an average thickness and is fairly straight. It can be wavy at times, and it can be curled if Iulia really wants it to be. It falls to roughly the middle of her rib cage. Iulia doesn't really have a preferred way of keeping it. It just depends what she feels like on that day. Iulia is pretty tall and fairly lightweight. She is rather slender, which is why she does not way that much. Dressing Style: Iulia loves fancy clothes. She loves getting dressed up and feeling pretty. She is sensible though. Usually, on a daily basis, she wears practical clothes that are slightly stylish. She also wears jewellery a lot, even if it's only a simple piece. Iulia loves shopping for new clothes, she is just as bad as an Aphrodite kid that way. Iulia loves all colours, except black. Since she has dark hair and dark eyes she feels that black makes her look the same all over.
The Defensive System
Demigod Talents: Iulia is a very good dancer. Since she met her adoptive parents when she was three they set her on the road of dance. Although she can no longer do the classes Iulia can go on points in ballet, and is very skilled in contemporary and jazz. She is also quite skilled at hip-hop, but that is a self-taught skill. Weapon: Iulia owns a Celestial Bronze dagger, but that's it. She doesn't have anything else that is hers alone. This dagger is a gift from Terpsichore and morphs into a simple bracelet when not in use. Iulia always wears it, even when she sleeps. Pet(s): None
Birthday: 1 January (she was born in the year 4 B.C.)
Godly Parent: Aglaia - Grace of Splendor
Mortal Family: None (actually, she probably has great, great, great etc nieces or something but she doesn't know of any mortal family).
Years in Hunters: 2000 years (she joined in 12 A.D.)
Group: Healers (although after 2 millennia she could be in any group)
Brief History: Eliana's father loved Aglaia (although he didn't know she was a Goddess). Eliana reminded him of her so much that he never wanted Eliana to abandon him like Aglaia did. He forbad her to leave the house and, just to make sure, in the days he posted a guard outside her bedroom and in the nights he locked her door. She never even went into the garden, she had stay in her room all the time. Eliana had a big window to let light in, but only two tiny bits at the top could open (they were there to let air in and were never closed). Eliana's mortal brothers and their friends would often tease and torment her about not being allowed out of her room. Eventually she hated boys and men alike. A week before her 16th birthday Eliana started to prey to Artemis. She prayed for freedom. She did this every night in hopes that her prayers would be answered. Eliana woke very early on the morning of her 16th birthday, so early the sun wasn't up yet. She got up and went to see if the door was locked, she did this out of habit - always hoping that it might not be locked one day. And that day was today. The knob turned easily in her hand and there wasn't a guard outside. Eliana quickly got dressed and slipped out of her room. It took her a while to find an exit because she had never seen the rest of her house before. When she did get out she went straight to the forest. There Artemis was waiting for her and Eliana immediately joined the Huntresses. *Note: Eliana lived in Greece.
Physical Appearance: Eliana is quite pretty and very elegant. She has glossy blue-black hair that falls to the bottom of her ribs. Her eyes are the colour of a polished Amethyst and are framed by long black eyelashes. She has absolutely perfect teeth. Eliana's skin is quite pale with a hint of a tan (it is pale because she never went outside, but it has a hint of a tan because she always sat by her window). Her skin has no blemishes or freckles. She has slender shoulders and the rest of her body is slim as well. Her arms and legs are slightly muscled from using weapons, but it is only noticeable if you look really closely. Eliana is quite tall for her age. She has long legs and long fingers and toes. She has a sapphire stud earring in each ear and always wears them, even when she sleeps. Her only other jewelery is a silver chain bracelet (it is actually her hunting knife). Most boys like the look of her, but she despises them. They can see the disgust in her eyes so they generally stay away. Whenever foolish ones make a move on her she beats them up or gets Artemis to change them into a jackolope.
Personality: When with girls Eliana is kind, thoughtful and very approachable. She becomes attached to all the Hunters because she is possibly the oldest Huntress still around and remebers when all the other girls came. Whenever a Hunter passes away Eliana is always one of the first people to arrive for mourning. She is incredibly loyal to her friends and the lady Artemis. On the few occasions that she meets boys she becomes high and mighty and annoyingly superior. She hates men and boys and is not afraid to show it. Eliana is very inteligent. She speaks lots of languages. Sure, some of them aren't used anymore but they still count. She is quite competitive and she hates being beaten. She doesn't like people besting her and will keep trying to best them until she does. Luckily after 2016 years of living most people can't beat her so they don't see this more unpleasant side of her personality. Eliana loves being free and hates being restricted (by ropes or otherwise).
Likes - Being a Hunter of Artemis (she regards it as the best decision of her life), her silver hunting knife (a gift from her mother, so it is very precious to her), her personal tent; a gift from Artemis for following her for 2 millenia, Greece, travelling to new countries/areas.
Dislikes - Boys/Men (it is more appropriate to say she hates them), tomatoes, conceited/spoiled people (boy or girl), bugs that bite, spiders, snakes (unless they are tiny).
Talents: Eliana is very good at singing and dancing as well as healing. She is also very good at combat and tracking but this only because she has had 2000 years of practice.
Weapons: For long range she uses her bow and arrows. For short range she uses her silver hunting knife. It morphs into a sliver chain bracelet when tapped on the hilt. She named it Splendor to honour her mother.
Other: Nowadays Eliana prefers to be called Eli. She is one of Artemis' most trusted advisors.

"Before you say anything, I do not like to be called Madeline. It's a stupid name. Call me Rose instead."
Madeline Rose Lowe
"You have eyes don't you? I'm obviously not a boy."
"I was born on the 30th of April. Apparently it was a rather pleasant Spring day."
Godly Titan Parent:
"Yeah, I'm not really a 'demigod'. I suppose you would call me a demititan instead."
Tethys, Titaness of rivers, streams, fountains and clouds
"I was claimed about seven years ago, at dinner."
Years at Camp:
"I've been here for ten years. Mainly because my dad is a self-absorbed prick."
"My dad? Eugh. He is a horrible man who never let me do anything. He actually abandoned me for gods sake!"
• Father: Reynaldo Lowe. He was not a good father at all. He hated the fact that Tethys had just given him a baby and ditched him. He channelled all of his spite towards Rose, and she learned to hate him for it.
"Not much to say really. My dad has hated me ever since I arrived at his doorstep. He tried to get rid of me by abandoning me at a random hill. Unfortunately for him it was Half-Blood Hill, so I'm doing fine."
Tethys and Reynaldo met at a movie. It was nothing fancy, just a romantic comedy that both of them went to see alone for some reason.They didn't leave alone though. They were wrapped in each other's arms, completely in love. One thing led to another and Rose arrived on her father's doorstep nine months later. Reynado never wanted the child. He had spent the last nine months fuming about how Tethys had left him. It had got to the point where he was mentally cursing her every day. But whe their child arrived he had something to aim all his anger at. For the first seven years of her life Rose had to endure all of her father's worst moments. He was often out drinking, coming back in the middle of the night and abusing her physically. Eventually Rose just had to stop going to school because she had so many bruises and didn't want anyone to see. One day, when Reynaldo was particularly drunk, he decided that he had had enough f his daughter. He shoved her in the car and drove out of New York, dumping her at a random hill. At first Rose didn't know what to do. She was only seven after all. After about five minutes of panicking she decided to climb the hill to see if there wasn anything or anyone up there who could help her. To her surprise there was a whole camp up on top of the hill. There were satyrs running around and people fighting with swords, it was all amazing. Little Rose ran down the hill before heading towards the Big House. Her logic was simple; it looked important, so somebody important was bound to be in there. And she was right. Inside she found Chiron, and he explained everything. For the first three years at Camp Rose resided in the Hermes cabin. About half way through this time she dyed her hair red. After so many years of being cooped up and assaulted she decided to create a new person. So she insisted she be called Rose instead of Madeline, dyed her hair red and became way more outgoing. One and a half years later she was claimed by Tethys at dinner. At first, everyone was confused by her glowing symbol. Only Chiron realised who's symbol it actually was. After that Rose oved to the Hera cabin, and that is still her home today.
"What kind of question is that? I suppose I stand out a bit, with my synthetically red hair. But that was the whole point of dyeing it I suppose. The rest of me is pretty average I guess."
Rose is actually very pretty, but most people get so distracted by her hair they don't really register this fact. She has quite pale skin, the most it can get to is slightly tanned. She never ever lets it burn. Mainly because one of Rose's biggest fears is sickness, and cancer is like the mother in the sickness world. She has relatively well structured cheekbones and averagely sized and shaped ears. Her nose is also quite average. Rose has quite full lips, and she often applies lipgloss or something to emphasise this. Her eyebrows are brown and of average thickness. They give an insight to what colour her hair used to be. Her eyes are a middleish shade f brown, and are pretty average looking. Rose has long, black eyelashes. This daughter of Tethys is fairly tall, standing at 5'9". She is very proud of her height, since it makes her stand out ven more. Part of the new Rose is the desire to always stand out. A lot of her height comes from her relatively long legs, her torso isn't that tall. She has quite a good figure, but Rose doesn't really pay much attention to this. She has long arms, fingers and toes as well as long legs. Her whole figure is more on the slender side, but she still maintains some curves. Her hair is definitely her most noticeable feature without a doubt. Rose died it when she eight and a half (she got an older Hermes boy to go with her). It is relatively wavy, but appears straighter or curlier on various days. This velvety red hair falls to the bottom of Rose's ribs, unless she styles it otherwise.
"Well, you could say I'm rebellious. I'm not very fond of rules or guidelines, they irritate me. I get annoyed by small things, but I do have quite a few good friends."
Rose is fairly complicated. After she changed her image, she didn' really know what she wanted. She just mashed some things together until a new personality was made. Rose is easily annoyed. Sometimes she doesn't even need a reason. SHe'll see a person and think 'I don't like them; they annoy me'. She's not very patient either, and hates surprises. Rose is also bored relatively easily.She is very fond of multitasking and hates rules. If somebody tells her to do something she'll do it her way. Rose is the kind of person to go around graffitying walls just for the fun of it. She does have some nicer qualities as well though. Once you make friends with Rose she is a very nice girl. She is loud and fun and great to be around. She's the kind of person who drags you along on adventures just for fun. She is very exciting to be around.
"I though that was meant to be a mystery."
Rose often pushes the boundaries a bit too much
"Please. If I ever got a pet it would die within days from lack of food."
"Well, I'm pretty good with water. But not salt water, that's not Tethys' forte."
Ω Water Control: Rose can control fresh water, but she can't create her own. She at least needs a bottle of mountain stream water or something. Water from actual rivers and springs are better though. The limit of her powers depends on how big or fresh the water is. If it's insanely dirty and small then she really has no powers at all. Tyeing in with these abilities is Rose's ability to stay dry in fresh water and be able to breathe underwater in fresh water. These two powers don't work in salt water though, and neither does her water control. Ω Cloud Control: Well, Rose can't really control the clouds. They're way too high for her to use them. Instead she can create her own little clouds. They can't really do anything though. They just float around. When she wants to remain hidden she makes them into fog, so that's useful.
"I have a longish knife, made of Celestial Bronze. It's the only weapon that's truly mine. I haven't named it since I've never got the point of naming inanimate objects. It's not like they'll respond or anything."
Rose has a celestial bronze hunting knife, a gift from her mother. It turns into a simple chain bracelet when not in use.
Year-Round or Summer:
"I stay here all the time, but I sneak out frequently."
Brief description of the character: Demeter has always been one of the kinder Goddesses. She isn't exactely known for blasting people into dust. She's more known for her non-violence ways. When all the other Major Gods and Goddesses are sitting on their thrones bickering about something Demeter will be quietly watching it all, maybe even trying to stop it. But sometimes it's just hopeless though. Although Demeter is one of the kinder Goddeses she does have a grudge against a certain God of the Underworld. Even Goddesses are allowed to hold grudges, you know. Demeter is a very out-doorsy sort of person. She loves camping in forests, or anywhere where there are plants. Other times you can find her inspecting plants on a farm. On Olympus Demeter feels too restless. All the flora up there is perfect. But down on Earth she can help. Demeter is generally more invloved with her children then other Gods/Godesses. Not physically, because that isn't allowed, but she always watches over them. Demeter is quite pretty. But that is kind of predicatble. Who would be ugly when they could be beautiful? One of Demeter's greatest fears is growing old, so she keeps her appearance at roughly 30 years of age. Her favoured look has long blond hair that falls in loose ringlets. Her eyes are a soft and calming green. Her eyebrows are a bit darker than the rest of her hair and are relatively thin. Demeter is very slender, and she is fairly tall. After watching over mortals in Olympus she likes to transfer a bit of that into her mortal form. Demeter has light pink lips that are fairly even in size, although her bottom lip is fuller than her upper one. She has straight white teeth, perfecting her pretty smile.
Sample Roleplay: Demeter brushed her hand along the wooden fence that surrounded this little forest. This area was a nature reserve, and for good reason. It was absolutely beautiful. Demeter had merely come down here to check on a tree she had planted here a couple of years ago. All she had to do to get in was smile at the ranger. After that he had practically opened up the gates for her. Demeter didn't have much time though. Soon the ranger would realise that he had let someone into a protected area. Demeter wound her way through the trees, aiming for the center of the forest. In a few minutes she had reached her destination. Her pretty little apple tree was in the centre of the small clearing. It had grown a lot from the sapling it had been when she'd planted it. Demeter brushed her fingers across the tree trunk lightly and smiled as she looked up at its branches. They were laden with fruit. Demeter reached up and plucked an apple. She turned it over in her hands and smiled again. Then she took a bite and nonchalantly walked back the way she had come. Now she had to return to Olympus. Otherwise she would be late for the meeting...
Why do you deserve/want to roleplay this character? I would like to play Demeter because she is one of my favourite Godesses. My first character that I ever made on this site was a daughter of Demeter. Anyway, she has quite a few children in Cabin 4 so I thought someone should really RP as her. I think I deserve to play Demeter because I am on this site at least once a day, even if it is only for a few minutes. I have been on this site for a while as well. I've always wanted a canon, and Demeter sounds fun. I hoped you like my application!
