The Story

+Act I: NIGREDO+

Hailing from New York City with a brief stint spent in Gainesville, Florida, Luciana Rossi was offered a scholarship at Blackfield after a tragic family accident. There her eyes were opened to the supernatural world and her entire life changed the day she discovered a beautiful Persian sorceress in a room of ancient books offering to teach her magic. The temptation was all to easy to fall to and the young mortal found herself brought into the Black Circle as an apprentice to Nahid, slave and student of Grimar Thorsson. Little did she know the abyss she had just all too willingly leapt into.

+Act II: ALBEDO+

Like many in the Black Circle, her master's methods were brutal but their effectiveness without doubt. Within a matter of weeks Nahid had forced Luciana to activate, sparking the divine blood within her. Now fully involved in the world of monsters, the apprentice was conscripted into the Hand, quickly proving her worth and rising through the ranks. She even, for a short time, held a position on the board as the Shadow Hand. Still young though, she struggled at times with the overwhelming affects of her sudden activation, the abuse she endured from her master, and the stress of keeping up her GPA at the college. How she stayed sane is anyone's guess.

+Act III: CITRINITAS+

Then her master left, leaving the rising star apprentice behind as her agent in Haven. A month later Luciana had left the Hand, ended up in the Brotherhood of Saint Jerome and fled her Black Circle apprenticeship. What happened to cause this is shrouded in rumors. Some say that she finally snapped and had a nervous breakdown after yet another clinic stay, others that she had a secret lover she'd been hiding for months. Some even whisper that this is all part of some plan set in motion some time ago and finally coming to fruition. Regardless of the cause, she's now left with picking up the pieces of herself and finding a new way forward.

Quirks

ø Blood Mage

ø Sea, Star and Roses

One of the first manifestations of Luciana's magical powers was an affinity for haemomancy. The young goth seems to delight in the sight of blood as much as any vampire, and probably a little too much for comfort.

Luciana often works the graveyard shift at the record store then makes her way down to the beach to watch the Morning Star fade and see the sunrise catching the ocean foam. She also has a thing for roses, especially black ones.


ø Hot and Cold


ø Marked

Different people often have very different opinions of Luciana depending on her mood when they met her. She wavers constantly between being either cold and aloof, burning with passion or painfully shy and simply shutting down when the world starts to overwhelm her. One thing is certain though, she does nothing by half measures.

While her Master has left many scars, most of which heal themselves in time, the young woman has recently been seen with elegant Arabic script carved and cauterized onto her upper back. Not merely a word, nor a phrase, but a whole text in tiny curved lettering which has proven resistant to healing. She's also been fleshformed at least once more towards her master's ideal.

Soundtrack

"God is a Woman" (Cover) - AURORA

You love it how I move you

You love it how I touch you

My one, when all is said and done

You'll believe God is a woman


"You Should see me in a Crown" - Billie Eilish

You should see me in a crown

Your silence is my favorite sound

Watch me make 'em bow

One by one by, one


"All This and Heaven Too" - Florence + The Machine

And the heart is hard to translate

It has a language of its own

It talks in tongues and quiet sighs

And short shallow gasps


"A Little Wicked" - Valerie Broussard

Beware the patient woman, cause this much I know

No one calls you honey when you're sitting on a throne

One of these days a-coming, I'm gonna take that boy's crown

There's a serpent in these still waters lying deep down


"Heathens" - Twenty One Pilots

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse
