    In Character
    Full Name: Phaedra
    Nicknames: none
    Birthdate: June 9, 1860
    Current Age: 26 Years
    Race: Merfolk
    Occupation: Attraction member at the Sandition Resort
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: The Sandition Resort

    Appearance: Just over six and a half feet long from the top of her dark-haired head to the edge of her coppery fluke, Phaedra loves to display the metallic tint of her tail with twists in the sunlight, causing refractions of light. Fair skin, eyes blue as the seas she calls her true home, a sharp jawline, and the pearls and shells woven into her hair intricately are all things to be proud of. During "entertaining" season, she wears a top of wrapped sea grass, having learned that most humans are shy of her when she remains uncovered. In activities, she shows herself to be ambidextrous, with a preference to her left over her right hand for more important tasks.

    1860: Phaedra and her six siblings - three brothers and three sisters - all hatch. Their parents name them all after sorts of light.
    1868: Phaedra and Luna swim from home without telling anyone. The sisters barely avoid sharks both on their way out, and on the way home, finding their parents worried for them. Both are checked over twice for any sort of injury, then admonished for their deliberate disobedience.
    1873: Hitting something of a rebellious teen phase, Phaedra leaves home again, this time swimming along the coastline south until she finds herself in a cove off of Italy. Here, she spends most of her time observing the humans from the water.
    1878: Phaedra returns home, at her top speed, to find her family waiting, and none too happy with her. The rebellious siren finds herself instructed to always swim with one of her "more responsible" siblings, if neither parent is available. Phaedra chafes, but accepts, knowing she had disappeared without a warning again.
    1880: Lounging on an out-of-clear-view rock in the bright light of a sunny spring day, Phaedra thought she was safe. Then the net came, binding her to herself, making it difficult to move, let alone try to escape. She screamed, screamed, screamed for her mother, her father, her brothers, her sisters; but no one comes.
    1882: After two full years of being a rich wizard's pool decoration, Phaedra is brought to the Sandition resort, where she is promised baubles to entertain the witches and wizards. She finds that her experience with her previous possessor gave her a hunger for attention, for the eyes on her. Only a few weeks into her time, she starts experimenting with suitable things to cover what makes the humans nervous, and quickly begins using a weaving pattern of seagrass to make a simple bandeau top.
    1887: Still attached to the Sandition Resort, Phaedra has amassed quite the trove of baubles. Strands of pearls, bits of glass, beads...and she even has collected a small pile of linens, anchored in a submerged cave for something like a bed of seaweed.
