Marchesa

'Family'

Mercurio Merciaio

Can you believe in a bond more enduring than blood, more indestructible than love, more certain than twins? Mercurio is that, and his fate is tied to Marchesa's for good or ill.

Leone di Fornaio?

Who needs an elephant when you have a lion by your side? Especially when he comes bearing cupcakes!

Faro di Zucchero?

What lives in a hammock and eats like it is going out of style? Faro, that's who!

Dianora dei Cavallo?

Glitter aficionado, rainbow hair, legs for miles. Where else is a girl to find someone with a 24/7 horn?

Inseperable

There is no good word for how to describe the relationship between Marchesa and Mercurio. They are more than family, having known each other as long as they have existed, literally. Separation from him any extended period of time, especially if she doesn't know where he is, causes Marchesa to start to panic and become overly anxious.

Too Many Rabbits

She has an almost obsessive obsession over hares, rabbits and similar bunny creatures. They decorate her skin, feature in her decor, and come up in conversation, particularly her house rabbits 'back home'.

Vibrant

Marchesa loves purple, and although she doesn't wear it often, there is no denying that her extremely long, kaleidoscopic purple ringletted hair is bright enough to see even through thick fog!

What Does She Know?

What Does She Know?

The Fire Burns

Marchesa used to talk a lot about her desire to regain the power she lost when she left home, her spark, the fire within. But that was then, and this is now. Now the fire speaks to her, not to mention keeping her warm during the frigid Haven winter [Pyromancy 2]

Animal Senses

She might have lost her animal form coming into the real world, but she has retained the enhanced senses she relied on back home [Acute Sight, Acute Smell, Acute Hearing]

Furry Friends

There are some benefits to living with animals, and Marchesa makes the most of her affinity with her bunnies as well as larger, more predatory animals [Animals 3]

World Traveller

With her freedom in this new world, Marchesa has taken to bouncing around the globe exploring. Especially since it can get her away from Haven frost regularly [Pathing 3]

What Does She Not Know?

What Does She Not Know?

How Babies Are Made

Turns out the process of pregnancy and birth was a shock to Marchesa, and she is still not down with the idea of bleeding every month, but at least that is better than the horror show birth videos Mercurio showed her on the internet!

Drowning

She claims to be able to breathe underwater back home. In fact, she claims everyone can. Thankfully she hasn't drowned in the water in the real world yet!

Romantic Entanglements

For a long time it was just her and Mercurio, and the man will give in to her whims as she does to him. The concept of teasing and toying with affections is novel, and, unprepared for it, deeply upsetting.

Common Knowledge

Being less than a year old has some major disadvantages when you came into the world fully formed. Marchesa never had a childhood and barely had a mentor, so she often misses some important information that others might take for granted.

Friends But Not Family ♂

Friends But Not Family - The Boys

Beau Allard

When you need the kettle boiling even as you drive into town, Beau is the man to call, and despite the fact that he and Mercurio are diametrically opposite, he has quickly learnt how to comfort a rogue Marchesa in a pinch.

Ryan Hawn

When you are a racist and dislike wolves, it is hard to discover one of your society is one, and harder when you realise you actually consider them a friend. But Ryan has bucked trends, becoming the exception to the rule, with his support and intelligence balancing out his less comforting elements.

Friends But Not Family ♀

Friends But Not Family - The Ladies

Azura Attwater

Every woman needs a work colleague who is willing to say it how it is, gossip about the mistakes of others, and get violent on occasion. Okay, perhaps not everyone for that last part, but Marchesa appreciates that about Azura. Their friendship is casual, but frequently amusing.

Disappeared Friends (1)

Gone But Not Forgotten Part 1

Ivar Strand

Meeting the blue-haired fae during a time when their societies were allied, Marchesa has gone through fleeting attraction and settled on friendship with the smug and often aggressive selfish arse. Why she ever put up with him and his ego is anyone's guess, but if you are hare in a human body, it is better to be friends with the predators than their prey. She hopes he returns to Haven one day.

Olly Omani

Sometimes decisions get made for you, and Olly being a friend is one of those choices that was less conscious decision, and more being bodily pushed. Still, the newsman liked food as much as she does and appreciates a good hammer, so the big man has become a friend, despite his return home.

V

One chivalrous act against a creeper, and that was enough to create a lasting friendship with V ending up, somewhat a surprise to both, as Marchesa's best girlie friend. She is missed on a near-daily basis by Marchesa, who hopes she will resurface eventually.

Disappeared Friends (2)

Gone But Not Forgotten Part 2

Joss Cantrell

Mercurio might be the other side to Marchesa's coin, but Joss seems to be the same side as her on someone else's penny. Even if they won't admit it. Still, fate suggests their friendship has a greater purpose, and, missing the power she left at home, she does rather like the idea of having her own paparazzi. And this one comes bearing food. A match made in devil's food cake.

Virginia Nightingale

'Friend' isn't perhaps the right word for Virginia, but someone has to call Marchesa a 'peach', and apparently that responsibility has fallen to Virginia. Fuzzy rabbit fur, juicy and delicious, with a hard pit of a core - seems like Virginia might have it nailed.

Austin 'Gray' Holiday (RIP...again)

What do you do when you are thrown into power but have no experience? You get yourself a friend who seems to know everything. Gray is that friend, the man with a plan in a crisis, even if he refuses to stoop to dashing rescues, the advice keeps the easily manipulated Marchesa from making too many terrible decisions.

Business Interests

Business Interests

Sandy Rabbit's Insani-Tea Party (Defunct)

North of town one might see the ruins of a large flying 'zeppelin' that looms over the old adventure park, Sandy Rabbit's Insani-Tea Party. Once so important to the Tea Kru, this playground of childish fun seems to have been forgotten, burned away by reality.

The Little Shop of Horrors

If you go into the woods, dear friend, you might just pick up some supplies. For murder, and mayhem, and magic, dear friend, to main, and maul, and mesmerise.

Teacups A Go-Go

Before opening the adventure park, Marchesa owned Sandy Rabbit Teacups on Etsy, selling painted new and upcycled teacups. She still runs this as a side business, although it is more for fun than profit these days. [Decorative Teacups 1]

Colourful Fashion

A lover of thrift stores and upcycling, Marchesa loves making her own clothing. She sews with machine and by hand, knits, embroiders and makes her own patterns. The only thing she refuses to do is crochet! [Tailoring & Costuming 3]

Her Life

Her Life

No Past

Marchesa seems to have no past before the 8th of September 2017. Sure, she has a driving license and social security number, but even the most cursory glances will tell they are shoddy fakes.

No Present

Eschewing modern fashions, Marchesa favours marching to the beat of her own tailoring drum. Bright colours, old styles, corsets, skirts, leather and silk, she doesn't quite fit in the style for this time period.

No Future?

It seems that Marchesa always wants what she cannot have. But eventually something will come along to make her pause, and perhaps this time, she will be able to keep it.

"I'm nuts, baby, I'm mad, the craziest friend that you've ever had

You think I'm psycho, you think I'm gone, tell the psychiatrist something is wrong

Over the bend, entirely bonkers, you like me best when I'm off my rocker

Tell you a secret, I'm not alarmed, so what if I'm crazy? The best people are."

"You be the Beast and I'll be the Beauty, beauty, who needs true love as long as you love me truly.

I want it all, but I want you more, will you wake me up boy if I bite your poison apple.

I don't believe in fairy tales, I don't believe in fairy tales, But I believe in you and me

Take me to wonderland"

"I think you might of missed it

I think you got it twisted,

When I told you to kiss it

My biscuit, my biscuit"

"How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally

How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just following my destiny

How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally

How ba-a-a-ad can I be? How bad can I possibly be?"

"I'm the root of all that's evil yeah but you can call me cookie

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire [x3]

We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn

Burn motherfucker burn"

"Her naked entrance to naked violence,

Under the seam, is a dream, is a dream.

There's something obscene, in a dream, in a dream"

"Ah sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl, And you've got me wanting you

Oh sugar, pour little sugar on it honey, pour a little sugar on it baby

I'm gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah!"

"When I walk in the spot (yeah) this is what I see (okay)

Everyone stops and they staring at me

I got passion in my pants and I ain't afraid to show it

I'm sexy and I know it!"

"Spare me your judgments and spare me your dreams

'Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams...

...Corrupted by the simple sniff of riches blown

I know you have felt much more love than you've shown"

"I turn to you, you’re all I see

Our love’s a monster with 2 heads and one heartbeat...

...I hope to god I’ll love you harder"

I hope to god I’ll love you longer!"

"My dear sweet Bunny, what we need is more friends for our parties and the people here are so plain and dull. We should liven them up a little bit, don't you agree?" - Merky

"Never said we were friends. I have none. Trust gets you killed. It's the law of the Wastelands." - Noah

"I had such high hopes for you. I still do. When will you take your people seriously? I'll keep your seat warm, waiting for the day." - Virginia

"I barely remember you. I'm not sure what you mean. But I'll be sure to run the other way when I see you.." - Still confused

"I did say I would bring you a gift. I did not think it would be that sort, but it could not be helped. Not many get to see my tattoos these days." - Mr. Nakamura

"More into leather than fur, and my monthly cycles are more manic/depressive than normal/eatpeople. I'm ain't a wolf, and--fine, you're not 'dude.'" - Fritz

"Oh, I don't know about the modernity of your ideals, even if by the choice of your company, I can't say I am particularly fond of them." - Paula Brito

"I've been told I'll find myself dearly fond once we finally meet. When will that be?" - Teresa

"Your screams still brighten my days." - Gage

"What can I say that won't sting? I wish life was simpler." - G'Mork
