There’s not much to say about Taini’s early years. She was just an average little girl for her time. Worked on the farm doing what she could with little hands and then as she got bigger she did more and more jobs before she soon became a rather fetching young lady. She had a few admirers but her Father and many brother’s kept most men at a good distance.
However Taini had a bad habit of exploring and one day wandered off after her chores had been done and found a dashing young man. She soon fell in love (foolishly now she realises) with him and discovered he was in fact a genie. She found his master and stole the item she was told to, a pocket watch. She pricked her finger and let the blood fall on to it and so summoning her love. She said exactly what he told her to, without thinking about the wordage. She was tricked, quite cruelly. He had swapped places with her so he could use her for his own ends and desires. Seven wishes. Most utterly selfish and were driven by his lust and greed. He kept her with him for the rest of his life. Holding off his last wish until the very end so forcing her to exist with the very man she had loved and been betrayed by.
It was a very, very long time until she summoned again. The fact a drop of blood has to touch the surface of the watch meant it had been passed down through a family for many years before someone pricked their finger and found they had a genie of their own. Taini quite liked the little girl. She was about seven and was so bright for her age. She didn’t fritter away her wishes. Making one every few years or so. Taini saw her grow up and have her own family. The little girl had grown in to a wonderful Mother and wife and promised to set Taini free! But she died during childbirth and the secret of the genie died with her.
Another few years passed and Taini became more and more bitter and darker. After the little girl she had been found by only cruel selfish idiotic people. She learnt how to twist and manipulate wishes to punish her masters. Most end up dead or wishing to undo all their wishes so wasting every breath they had uttered. She’s wound up in Mysteria. Maybe due to the trouble brewing there. Everything seems to be descending upon the town. However she’s back inside her watch waiting to be discovered in the park under a rose bush.
Curiosity – If there something to be discovered she wants to find it! It’s how she got in to such trouble in the first place but it’s a habit she’s not been able to loose. She likes walking and exploring places and finding new things. If there’s a box she’ll open it. A door she’ll go through it. A cupboard and it’ll be looked in to. This could have dire consequences. And dear lord don’t ever give her a map with an ‘X’ marks the spot.
Phobia-may sound odd being trapped inside a watch for so many years but she’s not aware of that, but finding herself in a very small space and she’ll panic. Sweat, grind her teeth, palpitations, all the bad effects of a phobia.
Impulsive- Taini has a habit of doing before thinking. It’s not a very good thing at times and again, it leads to her predicament. Perhaps if she learns patience she’ll be able to explain situations better and get herself out of her mess.
Animal affinity: She’s always been good with animals being able to understand their actions and behaviour since very young. She puts them at ease and actually seems to be able communicate with them.
Iron Will - She’ll get herself freed no matter what it takes. She’s a very determined woman and has always been able to focus on a long time o
