Two can keep a secret if one's dead

1) Describe your character's backstory. Who are their parents? Did they grow up with Nobility, or were they of lower class? The character's backstory must be at least 2 paragraphs long.

The Levine's were a family of the nobility, one of the biggest in the Lost Cities. For years, anyone from the Levine family was for sure in a high-up position, with a huge ego to boot.

The Levine's were always very careful with their marriages. They always tried to pair up the most powerful abilities with another powerful one, in hopes that the children would inherit them. This went on for a few generations, and the family grew more and more powerful.

Jaden was born to a Mesmer and a Charger, as their first-born. Almost immediately, the family's elders took an interest in her. Most of the family manifested at 13, but Jayden manifested at 11, as a Beguiler, no less.

Practically everyone started to try to control her, including her parents. They wanted Jaden to be a Councilor, and apparently the best way to do that was to groom her at an early age. Jaden hated this, and rebelled anytime she could. The practical jokes she pulled didn't help, whether it was replacing her mother's shampoo with bleach or filling her grandma's bed with ants, Jaden was the opposite of a perfect child.

When Jaden went to Foxfire, she hated it. The teachers treated her as if she was some princess, and in return, she did exactly what a princess would never do.

When Jaden was 13, the panic attacks started. At first, her family kept them secret, worried about the shame they'd get for having a child with attacks like those. After they got progressively worse, they enlisted the help of a physician that was an old family friend. She gave Jaden elixers to help, and they went away. If she gets too overloaded by emotion though, a panic attack sometimes takes hold.

Her family was happy about this, and she resumed her daily training and schooling, hating every second of it.

Jaden's currently 16, and is trying to get over her stuffy family.

2) What is your character's personality like? Are they respectable, or rude? The character's personality must be a paragraph long.

She hated being told what to do, and prides herself very highly. But because she was raised by a high-up family, she's very sheltered. Her comfort zone is pretty big, but once she passes it, she can start having panic attacks. She's very clever, and loves adventure, although she's never really been on one. Her emotions can get quite strong, which is unfortunate for any empaths near her.

3) What does your character look like? Do you have a model in mind for them? (if you do, you only need to say who it is)

Jaden has shoulder-length blond hair and sea blue eyes. Her model is Elle Fanning

4) Describe your character's skill set. What they are good at? What do they want to be good at? What are they not good at?

Good at improvising and being cool under pressure, until her panic attack hit. She also plays bramble on an all-girls team.

Bad at music, writing, and being dimplomatic
