Likes (At Least 3): ❤ Cows - Evalin was born and raised on a dairy farm with lots of livestock and pets. She has an affinity for handling animals, especially cows. ❤ Rainy days - When Evalin was little, rainy days meant light work. As an adult, she enjoys the sound of rain hitting the ground and the feeling of rain on her skin. ❤ Music - More often than not, Evalin can be found with earbuds in. She enjoys music and the way the lyrics make her feel.
Dislikes (At Least 3): ✗ Vampires - A vampire killed her older brother, and she developed a strong hatred for the species as a whole. ✗ Cities - Growing up on a farm means Evalin isn't used to big cities. She dislikes the hustle and bustle of cities and would rather be alone in the country. ✗ Alcohol - Her father abuses alcohol, and Evalin made a promise to herself never to drink.
Fears (At Least 2): ☬ Crowds - Evalin hates crowds; she often feels suffocated in large groups of people. ☬ Airplanes - Evalin is a nervous flyer and would prefer any other method of travel.
Goals (At Least 1): ★ Evalin's life goal is to meet someone and start a family. She also wants to write a book about hunting.
Personality: Evalin is a quiet, soft-spoken young Southern woman who enjoys music and rainy days. She's sweet and accepting of everyone, save for vampires, and her courage in the face of danger far outweighs any nervousness she has. Evalin tries not to kill unless she has to. She usually looks for the most peaceful solution that requires the least amount of bloodshed, unless the creature she's hunting (or the human she's dealing with) won't listen to reason, or is actively trying to kill her. Despite this, Evalin is angry. Many factors in her life led her to bottle up this anger, such as her father's treatment of her and favoritism of her brother and her brother's death, leading to her having quite the temper. Evalin spent most of her life alone after her brother's death and longs for someone to love. She may get attached to someone too quickly for the simple fact that she's been alone for so long.
Positives (At Least 3): ✧ Hard-working - Evalin takes every job seriously and puts all her effort into them after learning what poor preparedness can do to a person. She takes the time to research and plan before heading into a hunt, and she covers her tracks afterwards. ✧ Peaceful - Evalin tries to find peaceful solutions to every situation, but sadly, this isn't always achievable, in which case she'll abandon this. This is a more secondary trait. ✧ Sentimental - Evalin keeps a detailed journal of every hunt she's been on as well as a memento from each hunt. She hopes to pass these onto future hunters when she retires. ✧ Generous - Evalin won't think twice about offering some of what she has to someone less fortunate. Whether it be the other half of her sandwich or a place to stay for the night, Evalin won't keep these things to herself.
Negatives (At Least 3): ✦ Overly-attached - Evalin grew up without friends or romantic interests, and there's a chance she might grow attached too soon to someone who shows interest in her. ✦ Short-tempered - When a sensitive subject to Evalin is mentioned, namely her brother, Evalin will go into a bit of a rage that comes and goes rather quickly. ✦ Holds Grudges - Evalin doesn't just forgive and forget. She holds grudges for a long time against anyone that's wronged her, and will go as far as to hate a whole species. ✦ Know-It-All - Evalin's knowledge has a negative side; she's a know-it-all. She thinks she knows more than the average hunter, but this isn't always the case. Still, she prides herself in her expansive knowledge.
Parents: Alice Mary Wood (Mother) and David Henry Wood (Father) Siblings: David Henry Wood Jr. (DJ) (Older Brother) (Deceased) Other Family: Henrietta Evalin Wood (Grandmother on Father's Side) Important Others: N/A History: Evalin was born on a dairy farm to parents Alice and David with an older brother, DJ, who was six years old when she was born. The two siblings were inseparable, but despite this, David Sr. took an obvious favorite in DJ, who was larger, stronger, and "more able to carry the family name", as her father put it. Evalin's relationship with her father was troubled; in addition to being the second favorite, her father was certain that her know-it-all attitude was going to get her killed one day and stifled her as a result. Evalin was closer with her mother, who embraced her love of learning and sharing and taught her everything she knew about the supernatural. Her grandmother, Henrietta, owns the farm and lives next-door to the family. Henrietta was the siblings' guardian while their parents were on jobs, and Evalin despised her strict hand but adored her endless lessons about supernatural creatures. The two developed a close, yet spiky bond, and continue it to this day. From a young age, Evalin wanted to go to a normal school and make normal friends, but her family forbade it, worried that the little braggart would share some of the information she had been taught and scare the children and their families. Despite her wishes, she was never allowed to attend a mainstream school or have friends over (not that she had any due to being so sheltered). DJ was her only "friend". Evalin's childhood was filled with farm chores, home-schooling, and learning about hunting. Both her mother and father were hunters (that's how they met), and while her mother had retired from the profession when Evalin turned 12, she was the go-to for information about different creatures. Evalin took to her mother's studies naturally due to her thirst to learn but was also forced to learn how to hunt and kill these creatures, as was her father's wish. This continued until Evalin "graduated" from her home-schooling, and her father trusted DJ to take her out on a hunt. Evalin did something incredibly stupid that night. The young, naive hunter waltzed into the nest without any fear and didn't stick to DJ's carefully crafted plan, instead hoping to catch the vampires by surprise. She was attacked, and DJ rushed in to save her, only to be unceremoniously struck down by two more vampires coming to protect their kin. Evalin fled home and tearfully told her family what had happened, which sent her father into a rage. Had they stuck to the plan, he had screamed, DJ would certainly still be alive. This was all her fault, and she knew it. From that day on, she put work into every case she came across, sticking to a plan and following through. This calmed her father temporarily, but still maintains that Evalin is a reckless child who shouldn't be allowed to hunt. To this day, her father blames her for her brother's death, but still allows her to come home between hunts if she so desires. However, Evalin rarely visits home due to the fear of rejection, and she resorts to calling home about once a month to speak with her mother, grandmother, and sometimes father. Now, as a young woman, Evalin is paving her way in the community of hunters, hoping to finally make a name for herself and perhaps make some friends, too.
Alias: Airabelle How did you find us?: Google Experience: 5+ years of Proboards experience, 8+ years of roleplaying experience Other Characters: N/A RP Sample: Drip. Drip. Drip. In the old, abandoned barn, a steady leak persisted at the doorway. Evalin ducked through it between drops, clutching an old, leather-bound journal tightly to her chest. Her family had a sprawling property, and this was one of two barns that they no longer used to house their livestock for one reason or another. The young woman had taken to coming to this specific barn after her brother's death; her father never came this far out into the property, and without his judgmental, blaming eyes boring down on her, she could work in peace. She pulled a pencil out of the journal and opened it to a blank page, then began to scribble. Three years. It had been three years since her brother's death, and the memory was still vivid in her mind. How couldn't it be? She had watched him brutally bitten, clawed, and sliced. She was responsible, if she had stuck to the plan, it wouldn't have happened. Why did she let it happen? Rippppppppppp. Evalin looked down and noticed a huge rip leaping across the page. She had been pressing down too hard with her pencil. "Dang," she whispered with a cracked voice, tearing out the page and crumpling it into a ball. She clutched it hard to her chest, then threw it into a corner of the barn where scraps of paper already littered the floor. A tear rolled down her cheek. Her brother was gone. She made this realization every day, sometimes first thing in the morning, sometimes on a hunt, and sometimes right before she went to bed. But she remembered every day. Her brother was gone, and it was her fault.
