Tova Cait Armitage
Name: Tova Cait Armitage
Birthplace: Mysteria, North Dakota.
Occupation: University student, fourth (final) year.
Appearance: Tova is just above five foot nine with long, brownish hair. She is surprisingly strong for her slim frame, having long lean muscles that goes well with the rest of her dainty appearance. She has a very cute face and looks remarkably innocent, something some might say is very deceptive as it clashes with her personality
Personality: If you would look up the word playful in a dictionary you won't find a picture of Tova, but you might as well could have. There is nothing she loves more than having fun, even if it is on other peoples expenses as long as it amuses her it will be all good - something her siblings have learned firsthand over the years. She loves being outdoors doing whatever she can as long as she gets to move around. She's always been very active and despite her disabilities she isn't concerned about approaching people and making new friends but Tova like most people aren't always fun to be around. She can be moody and has one hell of a temper.
Special abilities/talents: Yet unknown for plot purposes.
Species/Group: Therianthrope - Were-polecat
Power(s): Able to jump up to 5 feet from a standstill, excellent endurance, strong fingers and nails making her able to climb most surfaces as long as she can get some kind of grip on it. Basic were-abilitie
Affiliation/Rank: Chaotic Neutral
Preferred Prey: Rodents
History: Tova was born in Mysteria, her parents were a pair of fugitives seeking shelter from their past lives. They settled in the outskirts of town, keeping their contact with the rest of the inhabitants to a mere minimum. As soon as Tova was able to understand the world around her, her parents started teaching her skills that they considered vital for survival. Their life was relatively peaceful up until the year she turned seven. The last thing her parents ever did was to tell her to transform and to hide in the woods, they would find her when everything was alright again but they never came.
Due to her young age and the extremely of the situation Tova remain in her animal shape long enough for her body to start repressing her human side. She hunted and managed, but just barely. When she was found by a park ranger she had gotten herself stuck in a trap and was in a bad way. The man was about to put her out of her misery, having gone to fetch his weapon when she managed to revert back to her human shape. A scared and barely alive child was what he found instead of a wounded animal. She was rushed to the hospital and confined in the ICU for a few weeks ahead. She had no memory of who she was, where she was from or what had happened to her.
About two months after she was found Miles Armitage took her in and she found a new family. Life wasn't easy at first, she had troubles adapting and didn't seem to get along at all with her siblings. Being somewhat of a recluse took years to get past but with a stable home as a base and a family to rely on Tova couldn't really have ended up in a better place. When she reached her teens she had managed to go from a lost little insecure girl to someone who loved life and everything in it. She still had no memories of her past but it didn't matter any longer as she couldn't have been happier anywhere else.
Despite the issues with her temper Tova fit well enough into school, made good grades and friends. She spent a lot of time out in the woods as she felt some kind of strange connection to them. Graduating among the top ten in her class, she went on to University where she would major in Landscape Architecture. She's now in her final year and has her life ahead of her.
Flaws: Severe Silver Allergy – Being a were-critter Tova does whatever she can to keep away from silver. Superficial exposure to it will lead to itching, redness, blistering or even burns depending on the degree of exposure. Consumption will lead to itching, muscle paralyzation, lack of respiratory functions, heart failure and subsequently death. Even really small doses are lethal when digested. Injuries caused by silver items will not coagulate as it properly should and the wound is nearly always cause of swelling, extreme redness, itching and infections are very usual. Silver items that remain lodged in the body for a longer time will have the same results as digesting silver.
Amnesia – She has no recollection of her life before she arrived in the care of Miles, at that time she was seven. No knowledge of who her biological parents were or what she'd been through in life. At times she's shown strange abilities for a young child but she has no idea where or how she learned them and it tends to be a bit unnerving to her, and to those around her.
Addiction - Coffee is her weakness, if she doesn't get her coffee bad thing can and will happen and not just to the people around her. Although she gets grumpy and cranky those are just the outwards parts, her body tends to start shaking, she gets restless, impatient and just really, really antsy as she goes into withdrawal. She needs about ten cups of coffee a day to function normally, she blames her addiction on the education system whenever anyone asks or comments about it.
Psychological Disorder - Tova has some issues with anger. She can completely blow up at the drop of a hat without any hints that her patience is running short and during those times she's not really aware of what she does or of the severity of situation that she can find herself in.
Merits: Perfect Balance – Maybe it's due to her animal side or maybe she's just lucky but Tova has a tendency to just never fall down. She might stumble over her own feet, trip over things and skid around on patches of ice flailing like a fool but she will always come out standing on her feet. A sprained muscle or a overworked ligament sure, but still standing!
Unassuming – Might be because of her innocent looks that people assume that Tova could never do anything wrong or bad, something she takes extreme joy in. After all, it helps her to get away with stuff so she is not complaining the least.
