ERICA HARCOURT




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

[OOC Information]

Your Name: Alygator
RP Experience: N/A
Your Character's Player Base: Barbara Palvin

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

[Basic Information]

Character Name: Erica Harcourt
Character Age: 16
Gender: Female
Birthday (including year): December 1st, 221
Home Castle/City: Frysbruck
House [Birth and Marriage if applicable]: House Harcourt

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

[Appearance]

Erica is a very delicate looking girl whom has been blossoming into a very beautiful young woman. Though a fragile one. She has long brown hair that waves slightly as it cascades well past her shoulders and past the mid point of her back. Her body has been coming into its womanly curves but on the thinner side of things, too thin. Fragile and captivating all at once. The most outstanding feature of this young Harcourt is her eyes. Her light blue eyes with the darker ring around the edges have an almost violent quality to them. A softness and compassion resting deep in them. She has thick dark lashes bordering black surrounding her eyes, causing them to stand out that much more. Atop them are her triangular brows, a thinner more feminine look to them. She has small cheekbones that are exaggerated with her smile, and a narrow chin. When she does smile, she has straight small, white teeth and her upper gums flash a bit out as she tends to have one of those infectious whole hearted smiles. Her delicately curved lips pull back and twin deep grooves on each side of her mouth form low and curl into the connection of her nose. Her lips are pink and decently full, and her skin rather pale thanks mostly to her being a sickly sort of girl. With an narrow bowed nose with gentle curves redeeming it. She has a long, narrow body that curve into a decent set of hips and long slim legs.

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

[Personality]

Erica is one of those calm personalities, but it isn't fully because of a pleasant disposition so much as constantly being low on energy. This state of weakness seems to come and go as it pleases and has left her immune system very open for attack. For many years she has learned how to calm herself and her body as it is important in helping her heart calm again into a normal beat instead of the palpitations that cause pain when to excited or exerted.

Bravery for Erica has been different for the girl then most view it. Where many see it as facing a physical foe - for her it has been the facing of an invisible foe that lives within her very own body. The pains and weakness she has grown up with could have her defeated. But her courage of spirit and strength of will have helped her pull through illness many times where a weaker spirit might have broken in the face of such a daunting foe. But the girl, though not happy about her condition and longing to be normal, has much to live for. She loves her family.

It is no question that she is loyal, strong (of will and spirit), and determined. Her family have helped her in her times of need over and over again, and she would go to hell and back for them. She is very protective of her family and the people she loves. Though frail the girls spirit is anything but.

She has a compassion that seems beyond her years. It is said that true compassion is learned through suffering. And with her health condition Erica is no stranger to pain and sickness. And of loss, having lost her mother at a young age as well. Erica is the sort of girl who likes to help people. So long as they are not a threat to her family or her.

Erica is a social girl, loving to have conversation and constantly striving to be a good friend to the people she loves. With her compassion and usual kindness Erica has become someone whom her family and friends alike know they can talk and she will listen. And isn't the sort to go about and gossip about the private things people confide in her.

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

[History]

Erica Harcourt was born in year 225, three years after her older brother Weston's birth in 222. The first daughter of William and Catherine Harcourt was greeted into this world as a small infant of only six pounds born in the same year and month of her cousin Erin. The small child was accepted into the family with open arms. At this point in time Catherine and William were healthy, and happy. As time passed it became apparent that this child had health issues. Though concerning, and at times frightening, the child prevailed over sickness to keep her life. Though she would forever suffer with her bad heart and weak immune system. Illness would easily target Erica as she grew up. Causing her to be pale and fragile.Though it became obvious she was strong of spirit, such could not be said of her body and immune system.

Erica had a hard but first years, but where she was showered in love and affections. Oblivious to others and there suffering being so wrapped in the protective grasp of her families care. Apart from comments she heard in passing as a child she was clueless to the feud that brewed. She hadn't felt jealousy when Wade was born, she loved her baby brother, whom was born a healthy boy. Something later on she would come to be jealous over. Innocent and pure she found herself constantly getting attention and aid from her family and their servants and being shielded from all that was ugly in the world. That and the fact she so easily contracted sickness so she was kept carefully because of all the concern. Seen as more of an invalid because of her inability to run and play without threatening her hearts demise, the little girl would feel envy and longing when she saw other little girls and boys at play and running when she was forbidden to do such things.

But these things never could prepare her for what the plague would do to devastate her family. She was but the tender age of eight when her mother died. This was the first notable person to be taken from her life. She loved her mother with all of her little heart. When her mother passed Erica herself had been ill and taken to bed with fever and pains. It wasn't until the fever broke and Erica was able to move about her room again that she was informed of her mothers untimely end. And even then the little girl did not understand it. She couldn't comprehend why her mother wasn't coming back when she loved and needed her so much. And little comfort would be found in her father after that fateful time.

Her father became a shadow of the man he was before. Broken from the loss of his wife. And her brother lost in the storm of loss as well, she could see even at a young age, Erica is a perceptive girl. Even on her good days Erica was in constant demand of help and close watching. For one moment she could seem absolutely fine. The next near the point of collapse. At times frightening everyone with fainting. As she became older Erica realized that the weight of her weakness was not just on her. But her burden rested heavily on the shoulders of her family. Her need for constant care took away from others and caused a feeling of guilt to grow in her over her condition.

Over the years she has watched and seen how her brother Weston has kept a beast hiding from most, knowing the source of his darker side. How it was birthed from the hurt and confusion of losing their mother. Whom he was ever so fond of and close to. One that tended to rear its head in secret though never at her. She saw it, but never would she say anything to cause one to question the character of Weston, if anything she would gently scold him in private over some of his treatment of Wade. As with her other family she has found many friends in their ranks of course. Being a family that believes in strong family ties and loyalties this was never a surprise. Having Vivian, her cousin that was the same age as her older brother Weston, help her and care for her at times she became very close and fond of her. But of course she grew the closest to her cousin Erin whom is of the same age. But for the most part, she has been close to all of her family.

Due to her inability to do much anything active. The act of walking being exhausting many days of the year - this caused Erica to put her heart and soul into the academic realm. Of course learning how to be a 'proper' lady. But she has found a passion for writing. As well as finding comfort and joy in singing when she isn't to tired. Writing though has become her great escape. What she writes most do not know.

Recently she has been doing rather well with her heart condition. Of course she is not of perfect health and never has been. As her body seems to have taken advantage of this reprieve from the sicknesses and flues - as her body has put effort into her transition from child to woman. Her body has gained curves and a more womanly look. Something she is happy about, but mournful at the same time. Erica has become all to aware of her mortality. Knowing that few - if any - would ever consider her for marriage, as the chances of her carrying child and surviving looks rather bleak. Still dreams of love and family have teased her dreams more and more of late. Something she has kept close to beast and not bothered to waist on others ears for the fear of getting a look of pity.

The feeling of isolation has been weighing on her heart of recent times. More so since Erin has gone off to the royal court. She remains close to Weston of course. As always he is her protector. Ever there for her as she is for him.

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

[Writing Sample]

The sun sagged in the sky as colors blotched the darkening skies. The day looked about as tired as Erica Harcourt felt. But she seemed just as reluctant as the sun was right now to retired to her bed chambers. Her soft lavender like eyes looked out with hints of longing over the green fields. Her heart and mind would run through the fields and stand upon the ships in storm and fair weather. But in reality her body seemed to play part more as a cage then anything. A trap for her lively spirit.

Before turning to walk back from the window perch she gave one last wistful look over land and sea. Erica knew she was not like most girls her age. That she suffered from weakness where many others her age were full of limitless energy and health she so easily got struck down by sickness and drained of energy. Such hindrances weighted heavily on her heart. If anyone saw her run anywhere even for a few steps they would generally panic. They didn't want her to strain her heart. What she would give to be able to run and not cause the fear of death... That would be freedom.

Still Erica had her family. And though she was trapped in this cage which housed her defective heart, she had the best family in her eyes. True, her brother had that darker side to him he hid so well from most. But she loved him fiercely. As she did her younger brother Wade... When trouble arose between them it caused an ache in her heart. But she trusted Weston with her life. With Wades life. She knew the roots of his frustration lay with the premature loss of their beloved mother.

Erica smiled graciously to the older woman who offered her arm to aid the girl in her walk. Seeing the heaviness in her eyes. "Gratitude" Erica softly spoke with hints of reluctant appreciation. Of course she would have much rather been strong enough to walk on her own.
