"men need to be loved, women need to be wanted"
Gemma Teller, Sons of Anarchy

NAME: Mariana Rains
CHARACTER TYPE: Veela
DATE OF BIRTH: 20th September 1963
BIRTH COUNTRY: London
CURRENT RESIDENCE: London
EMPLOYER: Housewife
POSITION:

COUNTRY FLAG:
PRIMARY ERA: Golden


What is the concept for your character?
A young woman trying to find the best way to leave her controlling, biker boyfriend! She's half tempted to move back home to Brazil, she doesn't remember the place as she was moved over to England when she was a small child, ready to start school at Hogwarts. But the stories her mother has told her makes Mariana want to move back.
What does your character look like?
Mariana has long, blonde feather like hair, which she tends to wear in pig tails a lot and colors different colors a lot too. She gets her pale skin tone from her mother. She has a tall, slim figure, but has womanly curves all in the right places. On the outside she looks flawless, perfect even, but underneath her clothes there are a few scars which ruin her beauty, scars she received back in her rougher and younger years when she used to join her older brother Max when getting into bar fights, and causing trouble.

When Mariana was younger she was a right bad girl, she would wear jeans, ripped band tees, but now having grown up a lot and running a family, she's gone more prone to her mother and father's way of life; more upper class looking by wearing fancy dresses and nice dress suits. She might just be middle-class and be dating a rough biker, but she will always dress to impress.... However, she does miss her old style, so from time to time she'll dress down to her old look, for fun.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
All Mariana ever seems to do these days is argue with the Mr, chances are that's what's going on with her right this moment! The poor kids have to listen to it all the time too, but they're used to it and they think this is normal! Mariana hates that, which is why behind closed doors she's figuring a way to leave her controlling and negative husband, and leave with the kids.
What was life like for your character one year before their primary era?
It was all pretty much the same as it is now: All Mariana ever does is clean the house, sort the kids out and make sure her husband's dinner is ready for when he gets home from work. It's really starting to take it's toll on Mariana's sanity (what she has left of it anyway). This was round about the time Mariana had decided to leave her husband, she just doesn't know how to go about it as he isn't the kind of man you leave...
Who is someone from your characters past who influenced who they are today?
Mummy dearest, and not for the best reasons. Mariana has stuck out her marriage for so long because of her mother, mum had always drilled into Mariana as a little girl you get married and you stand by your man, no matter what. But enough is enough to Mar, she doesn't care any more, she's tried for so long and now it's quitting time.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Independent. With her not wanting to live off her parents money, Mariana has always believed independence is her strongest trait because of that.

Short temper, being a veela has always made Mariana have a short fuse. It's probably why her and Thanatos [the hubby] argue a lot, between his werewolf temper and her veela temper, their home tends to be a wrestling ring.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
More money. It is difficult living without a vault full of gold and money, having been raised in money and going to nothing, it's hard.
Image
What are their current short term and long term goals?
Keep pretending to be happy and that everything is okay is her short term goal,
and her long term goal is to leave her husband
What is your character doing now to work toward their goals?
Nothing much toward her short term goal, but her long term goal she's speaking privately with her father about helping her move back to Brazil. She's keeping her mother out of it, as she knows mother dearest will try and talk Mariana into sticking it out with Thanatos, as she strongly believes any marriage can be saved. The parents moved back to Brazil a couple of years ago, they've retired from work and have gone back home to live their luxurious life to the full, so Mariana wants to join them and is planning things out with her father.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?
Marauder Era - 2nd year Slytherin - 12 years old
Reformation - Part time Barmaid at The White Wyvern - 37 years old
Legacy - homemaker - 57 years old

VEELA STUFF

The strength of their charm
Being a full veela and in her adult years, Mariana's charm is pretty strong. But because she's faithful to her husband, she has no need to use her charms. Sometimes she can't help but give off her veela charm, she doesn't do it on purpose, it just happens! But she does try her hardest to keep her charms under control.

Whether or not the veela is easily angered or if it takes a lot to reveal their bird form
Mariana is definitely an easily angered person, but she has enough self control to stop her bird form from showing, most times. The main times it does is when she gets into a full blown argument with her husband, unless the kids are around then she'll hold back as much as she can.

How the character deals with the abilities and stigma of being a veela
It was fun at first, when Mariana was single and didn't have a jealous and possessive husband, it was always nice and boosted her ego to have these abilities to make guys fawn all over her. For fun in her teen years Mariana would always use her abilities -as best as she could at her age- to flirt with boys, and try to get them to do stuff for her. It was great! But when she got with Thanatos, it wasn't as fun any more. As much as Mariana still loves being a veela, she doesn't find it as fun as she used to, because Thanatos would go crazy angry if he knew she used her abilities on purpose to flirt with someone or just to see if she could get a guy to do something for her.

Her abilities come from both sides of her family. Mariana's parents were an arranged marriage, they were paired together by their families because of them both being veelas. Both families are basically no better than wizarding purebloods who want to breed in their own families to remain a pure veela family. There is traces of that sort of thing a bit further back into Mariana's family tree.

    • Mariana can be a little rough around the edges sometimes, a tough tomboy who speaks her mind and has no filter. But she can be sweet sometimes, gentle when the occasion calls for it. Friendly and outgoing, though can be easily angered. Sticks up for those who need it, loves a good wrestle/fight. Is honest, caring and confident.
