Appearance: Five feet three and tiny as a reed, Isabel isn't the first person that comes to mind when you think 'Hunter'. She's got strength though, even if it doesn't show physically. Her big eyes are a blended hazel, brown and green, the green a contrast on her naturally dark skin, a feature that stands out more than most. She doesn't have to tan, it's natural. Her blonde hair? More Clairol than genetics, but it works for her.
She's very chic for someone on such a tight income, loving colors and other clothes that make her look like the perfect prey. She's fashion concious, but to a point. If it interferes with her work, she won't wear it. Though most short girls like her prefer heels, she usually just wears ballet flats for the most part.
Personality: Vivacious and feisty, Isabel isn't the type to just sit back and let things happen. She's independent and active, admittedly stubborn as hell.
She has a goofy sense of fun. If a situation tenses up, let Isabel get a few words in and you'll be laughing in a snap. She has no problem making a joke of herself to make you laugh, be absolutely silly. She's serious when she needs to be, but other than that? Not so much.
Even during a fight she's known to tease. Always that one last jibe before bringing someone down. Isabel has a tendency to get in a lot of fights, people thinking her 'troubled'. That's not true, they just don't know that the person she was fighting happened to be a supernatural on a power trip.
When she's not joking around or kicking ass, she has a very soothing vibe about her, one that helps you get your guard down.
Special abilities/talents: She's extremely flexible and graceful of course. Side effect from dancing since you were old enough to stand.
Supernatural Affinity: Species/Group: Skinwalker Power(s): Shapeshifting (Specifics hawk, wolf, doe, fox, bear) Level: Strong for so small ;) Affiliation/Rank: N/A Preferred Prey: Rabbit in shifter form, demons in human form.
History: Isabel Rayne's grandfather was a Mandan Indian, her grandmother English and both her parents American. However that one gene of her grandfather's was enough to render Isabel a skinwalker.
She discovered the ability early, and her grandfather taught her how to control it. While discovering life as a doe, she learned she had a grace that was meant for stage. She wanted to be a ballerina.
Going into dance right away, she met another girl about her age, Mackenzie, or "Kenzie" as she called her. The two clicked immediately and because Kenzie's dad wasn't around, she was her surrogate sister. Even more so after Kenzie's mother passed, watching over her in animal form when she could, especially since her best friend had closed herself off so. She brought Kenzie over to her huge family's parties and barbecues, loving every moment of it.
They were a poor family, but a happy one. However, not all of them were shifters. She, her younger sister, a few others, but the rest, including her parents were normal humans. A hardship when the young and rebellious Isabel would shift into a hawk and fly away when she got grounded, but they managed.
The reason Isabel was so rebellious? She wanted to do something with her power, not hide it. She wanted to help people, save them. She met her match when she tried to stop a mugger that was a river hag one day when she was eighteen. Just before she nearly got her neck broken by the faerie, a group of hunters saved her life. After that? She covered as a dancer so she could hunt too, learn the trade like she should have ages ago.
Now she hears her best friend is in the capital of Supernatural mayhem. Well she's not going in without some back up.
Flaws: Isabel finds it hard to forgive and she never forgets. Just in her nature. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me but I'm kicking your ass anyway.
Matchmaker-matchmaker, light me on fire. Isabel loves to see people in love, and tries so hard to help. However it's more often than not backfired and exploded into a mess of confusion and anger, the very antithesis of how she wanted it. She's lost a few good friends due to her meddling and still can't control it.
Isabel's meddlesome streak is one she gets from her parents. Talk about interfering, she and her siblings can't get a break! They're in Chicago still, but even now they call as much as possible. Not that Isabel is any different of course.
Money? What is that? The Rayne family has been poor her entire life and as a starving artist combined with any scrap she gets going to her hunting duties (that she doesn't get paid for damn it), she's never known having more than a few bucks to her name.
Merits: Isabel's very compassionate with and inert sense of nobility. This is what drives her to do something good with her gift.
Isabel knows how to make money stretch like you can't believe. She isn't greedy, but poor and knows how to work it out so she doesn't seem or feel that way.
