[Personality]

Some of this is from CyanoticSparkle...

Being the youngest was never easy, and yet it had its perks at times. Being one of learning does not mean one doesn't enjoy life as well. Tina, only called this by those she deemed worthy to do so, knew that learning wasn't something one did just from tomes and parchment. She was one to seek out any avenue of learning no matter where it came from depending on the subject. Some subjects she wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

Quote:
Like most DeLaunceys, Tina carries herself with quiet confidence, but arrogance is a vice she does not permit herself. She has far too much to learn to ever stop; every person she meets is a teacher in the study of life. She wears a smile readily, speaks smoothly and melodically, and reveals her intelligence readily. Augustine is not one of the Authority of Knowledge’s daughters for nothing.

A thoroughgoing bookworm with an unquenchable love for the written word, she wishes she could be her father’s successor, but knows it cannot be. That doesn’t stop her from helping father and older sister in compiling dossiers on people, researching various matters of concern to the King and Council and discreetly offering information, counsel and whatever is needed. If it requires hours upon hours spent buried in dusty tomes, parchment and ink, then Augustine is all too glad to take it on.

Where Alexandrine is in search of adventure and excitement, Augustine craves a new library and strives to travel as much with her father as possible. The sisters have agreed that one, or both should stay with him, the better to ensure Julius takes care of himself.

Close to Alexandrine, Augustine tries to be supportive, encouraging and affectionate. Her sister is a true DeLauncey: lovely, elegant, and capable – Augustine considers Xan a sterling example of what she herself is trying to be. When together, she defers naturally to her sister as the elder; when apart, she writes frequently to share with her sister all that goes on within her purview.
Aris was another matter entirely for her. She didn't find it a chore to be with him, but instead she looked forward to their encounters not sure what it would bring. She loved her brother, but sometimes he could be such a boy. It wasn't that she wouldn't look after him she would in a heartbeat. At times she found herself in debates with him, and wasn't sure how to get out of them without losing it completely. Only occasionally did he win one though since she wouldn't just give up. Of course they bickered like any siblings would.

[History]

Some of this is from CyanoticSparkle...

Quote:
Once upon a time… these words were pure magic to the second born daughter of Julius deLauncey and Rochelle Fleurant. Infanthood was a barrier to her, something to be endured and pushed through as swiftly as possible until she was old enough to receive lessons. Nannies and nurses were driven to grey hair by her demands for ‘just one more story’ and ‘why?’ was her favorite question.

Tagging along after Alexandrine was only a minimal distraction for the small girl. Show her a book, and she forgot all about her sister, unfortunately. Tina, she called herself due to a rather unfortunate lisp – who wants to be called Auguthtine, really? – wanted to be just like Papa when she grew up. Smart, literate, erudite and a respected scholar. She wanted to take his place, but there was just one major problem. Tina was a girl, and girls couldn’t sit on the King’s Council as the Authority of Knowledge. Drat.
She wouldn't let that stop her though and did her best to outshine in her studies. If something was to be done it was to be done right the first time. She couldn't wait to start reading, but writing was another thing altogether. It opened so many things for her when she finally started to get it right. She found it strange that she could use both hands to write with, but she didn't share that with anyone only using her right around others.

Quote:
Her father was something of a kind, affectionate and occasionally aloof personage, but she revered him for his wisdom. Grateful as well that her mother was a patient and understanding woman, that Alexandrine didn’t mind her sister covered in ink and book dust, Augustine was a rather happy child. Arius was an occasional thorn in her side, but that was what brothers were for, her mother reminded her.

Once the King died, Julius grew even more aloof, but Tina coped. She had her brother and her sister, and her books. She was a frequent visitor to the libraries in Belleile and the Hollow.

When her mother died, Tina took on the role of traveling as often as possible with Julius – someone had to keep an eye on the Absent Minded Professor, and who better than his daughter? It also allowed her access to so many of the castle libraries when visiting, to see a great deal of Forsilvra and a chance to learn the intricacies and cultural nuances of the varied islands. A faithful student of her father’s, though he was not likely aware of it, Tina tried to be quite the little apprentice along with her sister, supplying him and Xan with all the information they might need to guide the King wisely and intelligently.
Eventually she returned to her brother's side as well. She knew she had to equally help with her father and brother. She didn't mind so much especially since Arius seemed to be practicing when she was doing her own thing. She sometimes loved his music while other times she wished he would pick another piece.


-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]


It wasn't something she expected. Who would actually. She didn't understand why it had to be her mother. She knew illness was in the world, but to have her mother ripped from her like that? It wasn't a lesson she had wanted to learn.

Tina had turned to the only place she knew at all. She was in the library hiding in her books. She wasn't sure what else to do. Xan would make sure that they all were taken care of otherwise. She sighed and looked over the latest book she had found. It seemed interesting, and she could use some sort of distraction.

Considering how long the other one took and the time in this one, I am no longer interested in playing this character. Thanks.
