Ester Lyra, October 2010

Alias(es): 13 (as a ghoul)

Real Name: (as far as she knows) Ester Lyra

Apparent Age: 15ish, but closer to Natalie Portman circa ‘The Professional’

Concept: Shiny Ingénue

Physical description: Ester walks with a light and springy step, her head held high, bright brown eyes wide and darting from side to side. She moves as if she could fly away at any moment, but observes everything around her with intense, polite interest. She looks like a young teen, is a bit over 5ft tall, and has dark hair.
Ester’s head is covered with a small cap or headdress, she always wears a shawl or cape, and has archaic-looking jewelry piled on like she is playing sorceress princess occult dress-up.
A small brown mouse peeks his nose out from the small pouch attached to her waist.
Ester has a distinct aura of innocence about her ((merit: Sanctity)).

Ester pulls out a squirmy brown mouse from her hip pouch and holds him before you, “This is my ghoul, Spike. A Gangrel heard I was thinking about a pet mouse many years ago and caught him for me. I really named Spike ‘Matthew’, but then all these Nosferatu and Gangrel in different Domains kept telling me he wanted to be called ‘Spike’, so I decided that he was either a very social Mouse with Opinions, or that this was the greatest prank ever…. So I ghouled him and named him Spike.”
