CLEMENTINE KATARIINA PEURA
Personality should be at least 2 decent sized paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) or about 150-200 words.
Clem is cautious and careful, keeping an acute eye on her surroundings and allowing her senses to track any threats within the area. Though cautious, she appears fearless to most other than her closest companion, Digg. She approaches situations with a poker face, and is more often than not able to work through situations or fend off any offenders. She has a very quick wit, being particularly intelligent and clever. To those closest to her, she does have her charm, and an inner warmth to her otherwise protective, colder exterior.
Her weakness and insecurity lies in losing those she cares about, and in this case, the members of Digg's rogue group. She has a quality to her that is much like that of a servant and a warrior, loyal and fierce. Her greatest companion attachment is saved for Digg, finding a safety in being by his side. She also feels profoundly protective of him, and to get to her, an offender only need to attack him. If he's harmed she feels ill, anxious, and exposed, and does all she can to prevent this possibility.
She can calculate most situations mentally, whether they be potential happenings or current situations. She is intense to those that don't know her, and will fight with precision and ferocity, but only defensively. Clem takes a back seat most of the time, and unless her words or actions are truly needed, she remains quiet and thoughtful, often steps ahead of the group or others.
She tries to come off as being as dangerous as possible for self preservation, and does hold an ulterior motive of remaining safe with in the group until she can find a way to escape and return to her home. Of course, she has yet to figure this out, and keeps this to herself at all times.
History should be at least 3 decent sized paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) or about 250-300 words in length. Please include how your character discovered their shifting abilities (if they did), what their life was like prior to getting captured, as well as how they got discovered and captured by UNIT and taken to the Menagerie.
Clementine was born in Detroit, MI with her younger sister, Rosaline and their loving and supportive mother, Katariina Peura. Their father had passed away to her knowledge around the time Rosaline was born. She never knew how or why he was gone, and never pushed her mother to speak of it. Despite being younger, her sister was the first one to shift, into a fluffy, white domestic cat. She had shifted out of fear one day, having gone to visit Clementine and her partner, Caden Evans. She had walked in on a vicious fight, and backed up, unexpectedly shifting. Clem and Caden watched in horror as a fluffy creature took Rose's physical place.
"She's one of them!" Caden would shout and Clem would try and block his path. "Leave it be. Don't do anything rash, please." She begged.
"We have to turn her in." He scoffed, grabbing the scared kitten by the scruff.
"Don't you dare." Clem hissed, her eyes narrowing, a protective instinct growing with in her. She felt stronger than ever, having a goal most important to her of keeping those closest safe. She reached for the kitten, and before she had the chance to grow in her strength and protect her sister, Caden threw a fist at her so hard that she smacked her head against the edge of a table and fell limp across the floor. Her little sister was turned in to the Keepers at the M that day, and she never heard of her nor asked about her again.
She sat most days for the next several months in the apartment that her and Caden shared, staring blankly out the window, completely shutting down. She allowed him with only slight winces to put his cigarettes out on her back, listened blankly to him shouting, getting more angry and mean with her lack of response. She focused on the smell of alcohol on his breath, of the scent of his marijuana stash in the next room, of the small hairs that fell from his scalp and fell softly to the dirty carpet, lit softly by the sun setting outside their window, light blocked by building after building for miles. However, that light still managed to make it to her, to kiss her cheeks and bring slight warmth to her blurry mind.
Eventually, after what could be minutes or hours, she would hear the door slam. The cycle continued, sometimes ending with her in a corner against a wall. She would focus on details again, the feel of a drop of blood running down her chin from the split in her lip. She would focus on his soft, brown eyes tinted with amber, and search for the love she once found there.
Sometimes she'd managed an "I love you." or an "I'm sorry". Sometimes he'd break down crying on his knees, struggling with his own inner turmoil and guilt for all that he'd done, and she would but for a moment see the love there in those sad eyes. She would struggle over and hold his head against her chest, comforting him and assuring him of the man she saw, a man of love, strength, and good intentions.
She no longer had her little sister to protect, and her mother had long since moved on, remarried to a protector of her own. She had through a very memory-blurred phone call heard that she would have a new sister on the way.
It did not take much longer for her partner to return home stoned and drunk yelling about her little sister Rosaline, and how Clem should have been on his side about the matter, and how it was her fault that it went the way it did. Her pupils shrunk into slits and she stood up, little hands bundled into fists. Her limbs shook with the struggle of standing, having become weak and lethargic over the months of not caring for herself. "It wasn't me!" She snapped, leaping at him as human and shifting mid-air into a small tabby cat. She snarled and dug her claws into the flesh around his neck as he flailed and beat his fists against her, shouting and screaming. She buried her teeth into his neck and hung on for dear life, fully prepared to die for her sister's name. It took only minutes before she blacked out, and woke up two weeks later in Keeper's lab. She had a kindhearted scientist working with her, a younger blonde woman named Sarafina. Sarafina had tended to Clem's wounds with care, and hooked her up with an IV of vitamins. She helped Clem with strength and nutrition, knowing otherwise she would not survive with in the rings. All along of course, she was still tested on for a matter of keeping records.
She was released pretty smoothly, meeting Digg shortly after and bonding to him as her protector, and also one who needed her help and protection. She trained to fight fiercely, and guarded her old self very carefully. She remained rather quiet, but opened up more in the M than she had been able to in her real life. However, her strange bond with her previous partner remains and she plans relentlessly to calculate ways to escape.
