Character Information

Old fashion in some regards and very modern in others. She has a love for technology, etiquette and animals. She writes smut for a living simply because it sells well.She was heavily influenced by media and pop culture. She has a love for television and media that she doesn’t quite understand. She finds that some of her best research to answer any “Why?” or “What would happen if…?” (a trait she uses to come up with character concepts for her erotica) questions she might come up with come out of TV and cinema. Despite her acceptance of alternative lifestyles, different belief systems and ways of acting, Syprus herself attempts to put an extreme emphasis on being polite, inoffensive and diplomatic. She won’t care if you crack a “your momma’s so fat” joke, commit a vulgar display or use profanity but she tries very hard to behave properly herself. If you are blatantly rude or continuously improper you’ll probably end up on her growing list of people she tries very hard to not associate with. But, the thing to keep in mind is that in Syprus’s mind rude and improper does not mean dry, humorless and boring. She is drawn to interesting people especially if she thinks she can get a character out of them for a future novel. Some people have commented after conversing with Syprus that they feel as if the entire time they were talking to her she was sizing them up and figuring out how she could fit them onto paper.

Known History

Syprus arrived in the twin cities in March of 2010 arriving from Denver to visit the place her sire had come from. She liked it well enough to set up a permanent residence.
