    Verissimo Caldiera — Brother
    Thiago Caldiera — Brother
    Sergio Caldiera — Brother

    Appearance: Effy sports almost angular features and a pair of warm, knowing brown eyes. Her hair is a middling to dark brown. Her complexion has a healthy glow about it and while not particularly dark, she certainly lacks the fashionable corpse-like pallor so fashionable in Britain. She is a tall, almost lanky girl at 5’6” and her only real complaint if she’s being honest, is she’d quite like a little more bosom. Not that she’s completely lacking, but she’d just like a bit more.

    Effy enjoys bright colors in her dresses and is particularly fond of pinks, reds, oranges, and all the shades in between. She is right handed.

    1868 | Effy is born.

    1871 | Lygia leaves school and enters society. Too young to understand what’s going on around her, Effy is just generally excited by the change in atmosphere. Not that she gets to take part in anything.

    1872 | By this point, Effy’s closest sibling is Thiago on account of his being the closest in age to her and not stuck at school all the time. She enjoys bothering him for play time.

    1874 | Wanting to attend a party with her recently returned sister, Doroteia, Effy throws a tantrum which results in her first display of magical ability. With feet crudely merged with the floorboards, Doroteia couldn’t go in the end either. She was stuck for a lot longer than Effy’s tantrum had lasted.

    1875 | Another brother is born! She doesn’t appreciate being usurped as the baby and resents the attention little Sergio takes away from her. To make matters worse, Thiago goes off to school to Effy’s absolute misery. Stuck with only a baby brother and a sister ten years her senior who is far more concerned with the social season than her seven year old sister, her behavior veers towards the more impulsive as a way of getting more attention and filling the boredom. She escapes her governess frequently to play outside and hides from her in trees. One day she falls out of a tree and breaks her wrist and this is supposed to teach her a lesson. It doesn’t. She does grow out of it a few months later, only to find other ways to rebel.

    1877 | Verissimo returns from school but Effy is largely disinterested in him. Her mother starts going away with Sergio. Having just started trying to take an interest in her little brother rather than dismissing him, she’s even more upset than she might have been were her mother to have left by herself.

    1879 | Finally Effy is old enough to go off to school. She soon discovers a passion for plants that she hides rather well. Once she returns home, she starts growing a collection of potted plants in her bedroom.

    1881 | Thiago graduates. When she returns to school without him, she’s a little sad but she has friends by this point so doesn’t miss him too much.

    1886 | Effy graduates from Castelobruxo. Her grades could have been better but she didn’t take her studies as seriously as she might have if she’d had aspirations for a certain career. Shortly after, she makes her debut in society. For the first time in years, Effy feels like she has her mother’s undivided attention. Sort of. It doesn’t take her too long to start thinking her mother is only interested in using her as a tool to impress her society peers. Frustrated, she starts confiding in a charismatic portrait of a handsome gentleman that’s been in the house since as long as she could remember. ‘Tavi’, the man in the painting, quickly becomes her closest confidante and the object of her very first crush. For reasons she assume have everything to do with the fact he’s been hanging on the wall her entire life, Effy finds him comfortingly familiar and it doesn’t take long at all for her to fall head over heels for him. Even if he is just a bit of enchanted canvas, he just seems so real.

    A couple offers of courtship are made in time and both are turned down, Effy happily informs them that she is already has a beau. It had occurred to her that it might be a little strange for her to be in love with a man in a painting, but she can’t help her feelings and she doesn’t even try to fight them. The inevitable confrontation from her parents takes place and while initially a little hesitant, she quickly decides she shouldn’t act ashamed of her love and comes out with it. They are hardly accepting.

    Effy starts refusing to attend events and becomes highly uncooperative with her mother who finds her portrait infatuation unsettling. Effy finds this deeply offensive. Rumors spread that she is secretly engaged and they don’t bother her in the slightest, they bother her mother, however.

    1887 | She should have realized there would be a backlash and Merlin’s beard is there ever! One day, Effy wakes up to find the painting of her beloved gone! A full scale meltdown occurs in which there is an abundance of ear-splitting screams and sobs. Effy takes to her room where she makes more noise and disturbance than she has since she was a bawling infant. She refuses food and refuses to leave her bedroom. She also refuses to bathe, dress, or have the maid anywhere near her so after a couple days she resembles something rather feral.

    Sanity is only restored when her father and brother conspire to drug her and take her to Britain where her reputation is unsullied by rumors.

    Personality: Effy has always been a free spirited, outgoing, and headstrong girl. She’s very sure of herself, hates admitting she’s wrong about something and will avoid doing so at all costs. She wears her confidence very openly but doesn’t usually give the impression of arrogance, although she has her moments. Rash behavior from her has been known but usually she knows when to draw the line.

    Presently, however, a stranger might easily take her for a vapid young woman to the extent of being vacuous and “not all there”.
