name: louise marie reed. nickname: lou, louis age/birthday: eighteen[actually eighty-nine] . august twenty-eighth. gender: female. sexuality: heterosexual but, questioning.
god parent: enyo. mortal family: louise reed was born to esther and gordon reed. esther was a homemaker but, when the war started, she became a factory worker. gordon worked on a farm but, also ran an illegal alcohol smuggling business. louise had two brothers named john and james reed. they both died in action. claimed: yes. years in camp: nine. year-round or summer: year-round.
talents/passtimes: lou is extremely strong from all the training she went through as a soldier. if you ever need someone to carry a crate full of ammunition for half a mile, lou is your girl. her has excellant physical endurance and she considers this one of her most prominent skills. she is also good at many things a girl from the twenties would have been taught. her mother taught her how to sew, cook, and garden. her father wanted her to be well rounded so he taught her carpentry, good speaking skills and mathematics. pets: none. weapon: a 4 ft long celestial bronze sword that, whenever she kills a monster, another tally is added on the blade. she also built herself a chariot that depicts a fight between herself and hitler on the side. except hitler is drawn as rat while louise is drawn as a 50ft tall warrior princess.
history: the year is 1943. louise reed is the reed families only child left. both her older brothers were killed in action. she chops all her hair off, binds her breasts with cloth and puts on her uniform. louise reed hops on the back of the truck, waving goodbye to her parents, and heaving her rucksack over her shoulder. she's going to kill hitler. she becomes her platoons leader and a great one at that. she is louis reed and this is her life now. she pushes the germans advances back and sees enough bloodshed for a lifetime. her platoon is the highest ranked and the most reliable. people call them storm troopers, as they crush germans and italians alike. after nine months serving, she is given a holiday period. this lasts for two weeks, while one of her fellow soldiers takes her spot as leader. louise doesn't want to visit her family because she knows she'll be tempted to stay with them. instead she travels to a casino with the other soldiers on holiday. she stays there for years while, it only feels like hours. the year is 2005. a young girl, who calls herself ophelia, taps her on the shoulder. ophelia starts to explain the situation to louise, telling her about the lotus casino, and camp half blood. louise is confused but, follows her anyway. ophelia and her partner, garnet, were in charge of bringing louise to camp. together, they travel across the country, back new york and louise is suddenly in the modern world.
physical appearance: lou looks like an arctic goddess. her hair is platium blonde, and naturally straight. most of the time she wears it up in a tight bun or slick ponytail. her eyes are a deep, dark chocolate brown. she doesn't wear make up unless there is a special occasion. some people have asked her if she has gotten her lips plumped, which she hasn't, because her lips are so damn beautiful. though, they are chapped most of the time. she doesn't care much about her physical appearence ecept for her clothes. she is a healthy weight for her age, being nearly 130lbs and standing at 5'7". lou is toned and tough, with scars to prove it. she has a big scar on the back of her thigh from when a bullet brushed her leg. lou mostly dresses in tees, hoodies, and leggings. she finds these the most comfortable and give her the most room for movement.
personality: lou is natural-born leader. she embodys the gifts of charisma and confidence, and projects authority in a way that draws crowds together behind a common goal. but lou is characterized by an often ruthless level of rationality, using her drive, determination and sharp mind to achieve whatever end she's set for herself. if there's anything lou loves, it's a good challenge, big or small, and she firmly believes that given enough time and resources, she can achieve any goal. her ability to think strategically and hold a long-term focus while executing each step of her plans with determination and precision makes lou a powerful leader. this determination is often a self-fulfilling prophecy, as she pushes her goals through with sheer willpower where others might give up and move on, and her extroverted nature means she is likely to push everyone else right along with her, achieving spectacular results in the process. at the negotiating table, be it in a corporate environment or buying a car, she is dominant, relentless, and unforgiving. this isn't because lou is coldhearted or vicious per se - it's more that she genuinely enjoys the challenge, the battle of wits, the repartee that comes from this environment, and if the other side can't keep up, that's no reason for lou to fold on her own core tenet of ultimate victory. the underlying thought running through lou's mind might be something like "i don't care if you call me an insensitive b****, as long as i remain an efficient b****". if there's anyone lou respects, it's someone who is able to stand up to her intellectually, who is able to act with a precision and quality equal to their own. she has a particular skill in recognizing the talents of others, and this helps in both her team-building efforts (since no one, no matter how brilliant, can do everything alone), and to keep lou from displaying too much arrogance and condescension. however, she also has a particular skill in calling out others' failures with a chilling degree of insensitivity, and this is where lou really starts to run into trouble. to lou, emotional displays are displays of weakness, and it's easy to make enemies with this approach - she will do well to remember that she absolutely depends on having a functioning team, not just to achieve her goals, but for her validation and feedback as well, something lou is, curiously, very sensitive to. ss in most aspects of her life, in friendship lou seeks personal growth and inspiration, and she often has a plan for how to accomplish it. friendships of circumstance, built on things like shared routines, are not lou's preferred method - rather, she pursues her friends, seeks out individuals who share her passion for deep, meaningful discussions, and who enjoy learning and development as much as she does. it is not always easy to be lou's friend - she demands a lot from relationships - but she pays a great deal of attention to her friendships, and it is unlikely that it will ever feel stagnant. as in other areas of her life, lou approaches dating and relationships with a set of goals and a plan to achieve them, and proceeds to do so with impressive energy and enthusiasm. she's in it to win, and will gladly take leading roles in relationships from the start, assuming personal responsibility for how smoothly things go and working actively to ensure a mutually rewarding experience. romantic relationships are a serious business, and lou's in it for the long haul. flaw:

years at camp: seven. talents/passtimes: begonia has a passion for music. they play the ukelele and write a lot of songs about love and nature. they like to move to their music, swaying a lot and spinning. begonia is very shy about their music though. they don't let a lot of people hear it so, their talent goes unnoticed. the music player at the top shows the type of music they write, their voice also sounds similar to the one singing. weapon: begonia carries a bow and arrow that is designed to look like vines.
history: begonia grew up on their own. their entire "childhood" was spent in the middle and a dense forest. there were very few nymphs that came around their little bushel and this left begonia feeling isolated. they barely spoke to anyone, or even spoke at all. the other thing they ever did was make friends with the animals. begonia had eight squirrels that came by on a regular basis and just kinda hung out with them. eventually, begonia began to wander a bit further from their bush and came in contact camper. begonia was amazed upon finding out there was an entire camp just half a mile from their bush.
physical appearance: begonia has very elfish features. their hair is a brown, tousled mess that captures combs. their dark brown eyes contrast with their pale, freckled skin. begonia has soft, plump lips that are a rosy pink color. their nose is a bit bigger compare to other features on their face. begonia is so very tiny. they are only 4'11" and weigh very little also. they tend to wear dresses most often and have a love hate relationship with jeans. begonia has a slight obsession with cardigans and oversized sweaters so, you'll see them wearing them often.
personality: begonia is normally very shy and kind. they're quick to come to tears, and often don't know how to react to people in certain situations. this likely comes from their isolation when they were young. they are very timid and have gained the nickname "mouse" from other nymphs and campers. this is a result of them being very quiet and easily frightened. begonia is small and often seen as weak but, they can kick ass if needed. begonia tends to be distant to most people. they share the bare minimum of personal information with even their friends. begonia longs for a relationship where they can be theirself and unload all of their personal thoughts and feelings. mostly, they want someone to love and write stupid songs about because that's what they do best. flaw: begonia was very isolated as a child and therefore doesn't know much about the "real world." they often say the wrong thing at the wrong time and sometimes it offends people.

god parent: zeus. mortal family: anastasia vaslek was killed on the twenty-eighth of october. it wasn't something that baz hadn't suspected might happen. i mean, she was involved with the russian mafia for christ's sake. baz knew something was up when he walked into the mansion and all the help was standing in the foyer. they stayed silent as the chief of police walked down the stairs accompanied by a peeved woman. they informed baz of his mothers death claimed: baz was claimed the night he arrived at camp. he was just about to go to sleep when the other campers in his cabin started groaning and complaining about a light. after they realized what it was, a couple of the older campers helped him relocate to cabin one. years in camp: three. year-round or summer: year-round.
talents/passtimes: baz spends most of his free time with people. one of his best skills is socializing. he is very persuasive and can often manipulate someone opinion of someone or something just by speaking. his knack for writing and deciphering code comes from this also. baz was taught many languages from a young age but, the most prominent ones being russian, latin and computer languages. he easily dissects prophecies and is also good at hacking computers. baz also has electrokinesis, meaning he can manipulate electricity. he can emit static electricity from his body, conduct electricity into weapons, and call down lightning from the sky. [power perk in use] pets: none. weapon: a spear that conducts his electric-based power and electrocutes whomever it touches or penetrates.
history: baz grew up very wealthy. he knew from a young age that his mother was invovled in a shady business. she always had greasy, shify men over for drinks. baz knew that these men despised her, that they were here for a different reason. sometimes anastasia would disappear for a couple days but, she always came back with a bag of money and some presents for him. baz was fourteen when he decided he was going to study at the library after school without telling her. he came home later that night to find all of their house staff in the foyer. a disgruntled-looking man came pounding down the stairs accompanied by a frail old woman. they stopped in front of baz, who by now, was shouting and demanding to be told what was happening. the man led him into the tv room and sat him on the couch. baz could barely breath when the man informed him of his mothers murder. he barely felt it when the tears started. he dragged his feet up the stairs, towards his mothers bedroom. her body, hacked into pieces, was hanging from the cieling by wires. baz passed out and when he woke up he was in a car on his way to camp half blood.
physical appearance: baz vaslek is the poster child for lanky, smoking hipster. his hair is a messy mop of platinum blonde, with some lighter and darker patches. his eyes are a swirling pool of silver and blue, constantly fighting for the upper hand. baz's skin is tan, smooth but, knicked with bruises and other spots. a black septum piercing protrudes from his nose. his figure is tall and lanky, with bad posture and incredible flexibility. he often dresses in oversized tees and sweaters with tight jeans and trainers. baz smells of smoke and coffee, his addictions since he was a high school freshman.
personality: baz always has an impact on his immediate surroundings – the best way to spot him at a crowded party is to look for the whirling eddy of people flitting about him as they move from group to group. laughing and entertaining with an expressive and often blunt and earthy humor, baz loves to have a good time and be the center of attention. if an audience member is asked to come on stage at a show, it’ll be baz volunteering – or at least volunteering a shy friend. baz keeps a conversation full and energetic, with a good dose of intelligence to round things out. conversations about theory and abstract concepts, broader global issues and their implications and long-term planning are unlikely to keep baz interested for long. rather, they’d like to talk about what is – or better yet, to just go out and do it. baz leaps before he looks, fixing his mistakes as he goes, rather than sitting around, preparing detailed contingencies and escape clauses. ESTPs are the most likely to make a lifestyle of risky behavior, living in the moment, diving into the action, and not just heading straight for the eye of the storm, but being it. baz enjoys drama, passion, and pleasure – not for the emotional thrill, but because it is so incredibly stimulating to his logical mind. in these situations, his is forced to make critical decisions based on factual, immediate reality – a process of rapid-fire rational stimulus response – and baz will actively seek out this environment. this attitude can make school, and other highly organized, rule-based environments, a challenge for baz. this certainly isn’t because he isn't smart, and it isn’t to say that they won’t do well, but the regimented, lecture-based approach of formal education is so far from the hands-on style of learning that baz enjoys that they are likely to just get distracted and miss the details. given enough maturity, baz will see this process as a necessary means to an end, something that opens up more exciting opportunities, and stick it out. sometimes baz's ability to quickly read a situation or person and then seize an opportunity is just the basics of what is expected, as in some of the more assertive corporate environments. but if he isn't careful, baz can find himself getting too caught up in the moment and taking things too far, either running roughshod over more sensitive people, or forgetting to take care of his own health and safety. baz is likely to be easy-going and tolerant friends, with whom it is never boring. his imagination and spontaneity are truly enviable; baz will always be able to come up with interesting ideas to explore and find fun things to do. he lives completely in the present, caring little about the past or the future, and this is one of the reasons why he is so charming and popular. seem to get along with everybody and make new friends wherever they go. baz is honest, straightforward, and does not really worry about how other people perceive him; this trait helps him attract friends that share the same attitude toward life. baz enjoys practical and physical activities, so he usually has plenty of opportunities to forge new friendships in environments that feel natural to him. it is very unlikely that baz will seek friends who enjoy intellectual and philosophical debates. baz is very good at improvisation, and this trait is usually clearly visible, especially when he is still dating. whatever happens, his partners will never be able to complain that the relationship was boring. baz enjoys practical, fun activities and encourages his partners to explore them as well. if baz gets bored, he will naturally seek other sources of excitement, and this may result in him looking for a new partner. as baz also tends to be very charming and popular, this is rarely a daunting task for them. this does not mean that baz is unfaithful in romantic relationships. while he is more likely to engage in risky behavior than most other people, he is also a rational thinker and is able to control those urges if he chooses to. besides the thirst for excitement that baz is known for, he also dislikes long-term planning and prefers dealing with things as they come, taking everything day by day. this attitude permeates his relationships as well. baz simply reevaluates his commitments on a daily basis and adjusts his behavior accordingly.

god parent: thaumas. mortal family: calvin never knew his mother very well. catherine webster committed suicide when cal was only eight. she downed two bottles of bleach and her body was found by cal when he got home from school. claimed: yes years in camp: four. year-round or summer: year-round, except for holidays.
talents/passtimes: cal, being the son of a sea god, has excellent skills relating to water. he is a great swimmer and now gives swimming lessons in new york city for extra cash. he can speak to fish also, which isn't a big help but, it is pretty cool. aside from water-related talents, cal does some modelling. he starred in a sportswear commercial not too long ago. he spends most of his time either working out, training or watching films. pets: a tiny, little black lab puppy that he just bought. his name is bucky. weapon: a normal celestial bronze sword with greek-style wave carvings up the blade.
history: cal was born to a very wealthy mother. she was a successful marine biologist and won many awards in her trade. cal never knew much about her. he did know that she was always looking very sad, and she took a lot of pills. cal stayed with his grandparents farely often. his mother would pack him an overnight bag and drop him off at their house. cal loved his mother and his grandparents very much so, when his mother committed suicide it was a shock to him. didn't she love him? why would she leave him if she loved him? cal struggled with this mindset for many years before realizing that she had her own troubles. also that it wasn't his fault, she loved him but, she was very unhappy and didn't want to be here anymore. after his mother's death, cal was shipped off to his grandparents house, which he didn't mind much. they spent most of their time watching movies. all kinds of movies, this is probably where cal's dream of becoming an actor came from. the rest of cal's childhood was rather uneventful. he went to a regular public school, was quite popular and was part of many sports teams. everything changed when he turns fourteen. he had just arrived home from school and was eating some cereal when there was a knock on the door. his grandfather answered it, only to be met with multiple stab wounds to the chest and abdomen. his grandmother shrieked, diving for cal and dragging him upstairs, into their bedroom and locking the door. she opened the attic door that was located in their closet and shoved cal up into it. his grandmother made sure to cover up the door, putting a stack of blankets under it. the men came busting into the room and it wasn't long before cal was covering his ears to tune out his grandmothers bloodcurdling screams as metal penetrated her flesh. the men searched the house for him after but, never found him. a satyr came rushing in after a few hours, taking him out of the attic and to camp half blood. since arriving at camp, cal has made many friends. he even had a girlfriend, anna shauk. it was good and he was happy but, everything took a turn for the worst after the zombie apocalypse. cal ditched camp and hid out in an abandoned warehouse for two months until he thought it was safe to go back. so, here was are, with cal standing on half blood hill, with no doubt, an angry girlfriend and concerned friends.
physical appearance: calvin must have been blessed by the god of puberty of something because, before he turned twelve he was a tiny little runt. now though, he looks like a frickin model, which he is. cal has a dark brown undercut. he slicks the front of his hair up in a quiff. his eyes are a similar color though, they have more depth to them. his eyelashes are so unbelievably full they look fake. he has a v shaped face with a strong jawline. over the past two months, cal has been sport a bit of stubble, which he thinks makes him look more mature and older. his skin is a darker olive color adorned with scars and freckles. he is quite fit, mostly from swimming and training. he doesn't really have a clothing style, he just wears whatever is available.
personality: cal radiates authenticity, concern and altruism, unafraid to stand up and speak when he feels something needs to be said. he finds it natural and easy to communicate with others, especially in person. cal easily sees people's motivations and seemingly disconnected events, and are able to bring these ideas together and communicate them as a common goal with an eloquence that is nothing short of mesmerizing. the interest he has in others is genuine, almost to a fault - when cal believes in someone, he can become too involved in the other person's problems, placing too much trust in them. luckily, this trust tends to be a self-fulfilling prophesy, as cal's altruism and authenticity inspire those he cares about to become better themselves. but if he isn't careful, he can overextend his optimism, sometimes pushing others further than they're ready or willing to go. cal is vulnerable to another snare as well: he has a tremendous capacity for reflecting on and analyzing his own feelings, but if he gets too caught up in another person's plight, he can develop a sort of emotional hypochondria, seeing other people's problems in himself, trying to fix something in himself that isn't wrong. if he gets to a point where he is held back by limitations someone else is experiencing, it can hinder cal's ability to see past the dilemma and be of any help at all. when this happens, it's important for cal to pull back and use that self-reflection to distinguish between what he really feels, and what is a separate issue that needs to be looked at from another perspective. cal is a genuine, caring person who talks the talk and walks the walk, and nothing makes him happier than leading the charge, uniting and motivating his team with infectious enthusiasm. he is true team player, and he recognizes that that means listening to other peoples' opinions, even when they contradict his own. cal admits he doesn't have all the answers, and is often receptive to dissent, so long as it remains constructive. while receptive to criticism, seeing it as a tool for leading a better team, it's easy for cal to take it a little too much to heart. his sensitivity to others means that cal sometimes feels problems that aren't their own and trys to fix things he can't fix, worrying if he is doing enough. when it comes to friendships, cal is anything but passive. while some people may accept the circumstantial highs and lows of friendship, their feelings waxing and waning with the times, cal will put active effort into maintaining these connections, viewing them as substantial and important, not something to let slip away through laziness or inattention. cal feels most at home when he is in a relationship. he takes dating and relationships seriously, selecting partners with an eye towards the long haul. even in the dating phase, cal is ready to show his commitment by taking the time and effort to establish himself as a dependable, trustworthy partner. cal doesn't need much to be happy, just to know that his partner is happy, and for his partner to express that happiness through visible affection. making others' goals come to fruition is often the chiefest concern of him, and he will spare no effort in helping his partner to live the dream. if he isn't careful though, cal's quest for his partners' satisfaction can leave him neglecting his own needs, and it's important for him to remember to express those needs on occasion, especially early on.

name: aya ross. age/birthday: eighteen . april nineteenth gender: female. sexuality: bisexual.
god parent: demeter. mortal family: erwin ross was a caring, and kind father. He always made time for aya. originally, erwin had studied and became a teacher but, he got layed off in 2008. the next year he opened his own flower shop. the two professions seem completely different but, he was a evironmental science professor at a local university. he is very hard-working which his job requires him to be. aya always got her way with erwin. he was kind of a pushover although, stern when it came to important issues. erwin currently lives in royal oak, michigan with his second wife, karen. claimed: yes. years in camp: one. year-round or summer: year-round.
talents/passtimes: aya is musically talented. she can sing fairly well and she also plays the ukelele. aya is also quite the artist. she was included in one of her school's art exibits. her favorite mediums are acrylics and gouache. pets: aya has a corn snake named adolph. he curls around her neck and shoulders whenever she's reading or drawing. weapon:
history: aya was born in royal oak, michigan. she grew up in the center of the city surrounded by department stores and highways. aya spent most of her time in their backyard. she loved the trees and playing in the grass. most of her life consisted of concrete and the sound of cars zipping past their front lawn. aya's school life was pretty normal. her best friend was named morgan. they played on the baseball team together and still keep in touch. as far as Morgan knows, aya was sent to live at her aunt's home across the country. aya was bullied in elementary school but, never in high school. the "popular" kids ignored her and she ignored them. it was a good few years. except for grade nine. that was the year her father re-married. the woman was named karen. all around, she was nice lady but, aya had trouble accepting that her father had another girl in the house who he also had to pay attention to. aya arrived at Camp Half Blood in the summer of 2013. her father had found a brochure in his mailbox for a summer camp for young adults. aya thought it sounded cool and signed up. little did she know that she was signing up for something more dangerous than she'd anticipated.
physical appearance: aya stands at about five feet nine inches. her legs are very long and slim and her build is petite. she is covered from head to toe in hazelnut freckles. she finds these very unattractive and often compares herself to connect-the-dots game. aya has long, dark brown hair. it is usually wavy and windblown. she never uses an iron to tame it because, she doesn't want to damage her hair. aya has naturally tan skin that becomes even darker in the warm months. her eyes nearly match the color of her hair. they have a bit of a mossy green tint to them, though.
personality: aya is known for being very gentle and kind. she resembles a baby deer in the way she is very petite and timid. most people who know her would describe her to be very down to earth and compassionate. she likes nature and plants quite a lot. one things that turns aya's stomach is the thought of being in a largely crowded area. her anxiety kicks in and she starts to hyperventilate. often, aya would take days off school or ask her father to pick her up because her social anxiety was uncontrollable. she feels uncomfortable in large buildings like malls or movie theaters. aya is also a vegetarian. flaw:: aya has severe social anxiety. she would most likely have a panic attack if there was ever a battle taking place or if she was forced into a crowd.

god parent: apollo. mortal family: caroline penn is a middle class, social worker who is mother to three children: ashley, carter and sara penn. she gave birth to ash when she was twenty one. caroline married a man named joshua williams when she was in her late twenties. carter was born a year later, with sara coming two years after. ash was very excited to be an older sister and now she spoils her little siblings. caroline and joshua had a difficult time accepting that ash was bisexual. they've tried to refrain from using homophobic slurs and racial slurs(which ash is trying to ease them away from) but, it doesn't look very promising. claimed: yes. years in camp: three. year-round or summer: year-round.
talents/passtimes: ash really loves art. she takes classes and was very close with her high school art teacher. she loves all mediums and is best at cartoonish realism kinda stuff. ash also has a passion for reading. her favorites are classics and young adult novels. hence, she spends a lot of time in the library. pets: ash has a short haired, black cat named sid. weapon: ash uses a celestial bronze dagger that has a dark purple blade and black hilt.
history: ash was born in seattle, washington on november twentieth. her mother, caroline, nearly died giving birth to her. apollo was present for her birth but, left her and her mother after three months. caroline firmly believes he was kidnapped and has stuck to that story for all her life. ash went to a very small but, diverse elementary school. she was one of the only white girls in her class. this helped her become a more accepting, humane person towards people of different cultures, unlike her parents. ash's mother is an in-the-closet racist. she makes racist jokes and often uses racial slurs, although she has no idea how offensive they are. ash tried to educate her mother on this from a young age on different cultures. this became an increasingly worse problem as ash grew older. especially when she came out as bisexual to her parents. ash was twelve when she told her parents she was bisexual. she'd had a crush on a girl at school named teagan and that was when she realized. caroline and joshua refused to believe her; telling her she was confused, experimenting, and would constantly hint at her getting a boyfriend. ash felt like she was unwelcome in her own home. everything took an unexpected turn when she snuck out to go to the pride festival with teagan. while they were walking around, talking to different people and taking pictures together, ash grabbed hold of teagan's hand. they were together for three weeks before ash was taken to camp half blood. ash remembers those three weeks fondly. they were filled with weekends spent at teagan's house, cuddling and watch horrible action movies, and taking trips to barnes & noble and reading together while cuddling(aka ash's idea of heaven). it all came to an end when a satyr showed up on ash's front yard, screaming her name. ash went to see who it was but, when she opened the door the satyr barged in and ran up to her bedroom, packed her luggage and they were off. ash tried to contact teagan but, either camp's phone service didn't work for seattle or, she was ignoring her. since she arrived at camp, ash hasn't been very close to anyone. she hasn't made very many friends, and the ones she has are more of aquaintances than actual friends.
physical appearance: ash has an adrogynous look to her. her hair is jet black, cut short on the sides and back, and a bit longer on top. she cut it like that a couple months after arriving at camp. beforehand, it had nearly reached her butt so, it was a pretty drastic change for her. ash has bright blue eyes. they have a little bit of goldish-yellow in the center surrounding the pupil. she's near sighted so, she requires glasses. ash usually wears winged, black eyeliner but, thats the extent of the make up she wears. her skin is pale and smooth. ash's frame is petite, weighing only 115lbs and standing at 5'2". ash doesn't have a specific style but, she really loves to wear hoodies and vans.
personality:ash is an isfj personality type. though having the feeling trait, she has excellant analytical abilities. she is introverted but, has well-developed people skills and robust social relationships. she is the juding type but, is often receptive to change and new ideas. she is a true altruist, meeting kindness with kindness-in-excess. she engages the work and people she believes in with enthusiam and generosity. she is meticulous to the point of perfectionism but, often procrastinates. even though she procratinates, she can always be relied on to get the job done. ash takes her responsiblities personally, exceeding expectations. she often lets her kindness get the better of her and other people step all over her. she needs to know when to say no and stand up for herself if she wants to maintain her confidence and enthusiasm. her ability to connect with others on an intimate level, and the joy she experiences in using those connections to maintain support and happiness is a gift for everyone involved. she may never be truly comfortable in the spotlight, and may feel guilty taking due credit for team efforts, but if she can ensure that her efforts are recognized, ash is likely to feel a level of satisfaction in what she does. she is a universal helper, sharing her knowledge, experience, time and energy with anyone who needs it, and all the more so with friends and family. she is very imaginative, and uses this quality as an accessory to empathy, observing others' emotional states and seeing things from their perspective. With her feet firmly planted on the ground, it is a very practical imagination, though she does find things quite fascinating and inspiring. the meek shall inherit the earth, but it's a long road if they receive no recognition at all. this is possibly ash's biggest challenge, as she is so concerned with others' feelings that she refuses to make her thoughts known, or to take any duly earned credit for her contributions. ash's standards for herself are also so high that, knowing she could have done some minor aspect of a task better, she often downplays her successes entirely. her strong sense of duty and perfectionism combined with this aversion to emotional conflict to create a situation where it is far too easy for ash to overload herself - or to be overloaded by others - as she struggles silently to meet everyone's expectations, especially her own. as her relationships do progress, ash often continues to struggle with emotional expression, but she has the opportunity to let physical affection stand in for her loving words. ash takes no greater joy than in pleasing others, often even considering this a personal duty, and this applies to intimacy as well. while dutiful sex may not sound especially attractive in those specific terms, intimacy is tremendously important to ash, and she spares no effort in this department. given how generous ash is with her warm praise and support, it's not surprising that others enjoy her company enough to call them friends. the challenge is to be considered a friend back - ash is shy and a little protective of herself, but she also needs to be able to connect on a deeper emotional level. it makes sense then that ash's friends are made not by random encounters on a wild night out, but through comfortable and consistent contact, as in class or in training where they have the time to get to know each other little by little. basically, ash is me. i am ash. flaw:: ash is not the best at living comfortably. she often feels a stranger in her own life. she has a lot of existential crisis's to say the least.
