Hi everyone. I'm Jay, and this is my girl Talyssa.
She's another Antonite. Originally she's Roma, from Romania; she's obviously spent time in the castle, and now she's at Saint Margaret's.
Talyssa is an omniglot. That means, she is fluent in every language that is, was, or ever will be. As a result, she doesn't really understand language. Everyone else has run into a situation where they meet someone who doesn't speak their language for the first time and begins to understand that they have a language, and some other people have other languages... well, Talyssa's never had that. For her, there are just words, and some people use some words, and others use different words. She understands it all.
She understands animals, though there are certain physiological differences which mean she's not as adept at speaking their language. Sometimes, her ability is akin to someone speaking English with a heavy accent and a speech impediment... sometimes, she simply can't make the required sounds and ends up inadvertently insulting the creature she's speaking to!
She understands plants and trees, though that's more an emotional thing than a language thing. Trees and plants are alive, but they're not sentient in the way that humans are, or even the way that animals are.
There's more in her bio if you're interested, but that's about the long and the short of her. She's into tarot (can read the cards) but the language thing is her main gift/power.
She needs friends! She also needs enemies/people who don't enjoy her. Particularly people who don't realize the scope of her power and try to talk about her in other languages, thinking she won't understand! Because of what she endured in the castle, she tends to be pretty chatty: sometimes too much so.
I work M-F 8-4 at the moment, but I'm in New Zealand so I'm not sure how that'll line up with other people. I'm not sure how much playing I can do from work. I'm on a computer all day, but it's too soon to tell how much downtime I'm going to get!
