Re: Light of Amber - Series One
Reporting for duty. Daina Tanzer will ♪Talk this way♫in purple♪
Here is her backstory, though it may also be found on her sheet.
The world of Aberash is one where culture has risen around technology, and magic is thought a thing of myth. Even so, magic is part of the citizens every day life without their knowledge. For some reason or another, the light of Amber shines on Aberash such that those who live there are touched by one colour of its light or another. While it has no major effects, it causes people to have minor abilities making them better suited for tasks related to the particular shade of light they are touched by. Yet this is considered normal by the people, and the lack of any powers clearly violating physics among the general populace has caused the rise of a world with modern technology.
Here magical girls hide there actions, living out normal lives between their secret efforts to protect the populace from the neverwere. So it is peace is maintained, and Aberash kept safe.
So it was that in a prestigious family that had long had its members touched by the light of Amber instilling an affinity to music, that a girl was born. Her parents, a well known classical singer and a similarly well known musician, lamented upon learning that their daughter was born blind and mute. Still they sought to raise her in the way of their family, to perform music and dance. Despite their fears, they found early on that even with her blindness Daina was skilled at dancing and otherwise moving to music. It was when she was reaching an age to enter middle school that a way was found for her to communicate audibly. Having gotten a digital music player, she began learning to skip to various parts of songs to play words she was unable to say herself. Her parents seeing this embraced this talent, and helped her develop skills as a disc jockey, even getting a better music player for her to more easily communicate with others. As it was, Daina's interests in music ventured away from her families classical leanings, by her parents were simply relieved to see her interest in making music.
For Daina herself, music and sound was almost everything. Unable to see, she built her world around what she could hear. When awake, she danced and composed, when asleep she dreamed of songs she'd heard or hoped to hear. So it was that her dreams began to be haunted by an almost heard melody more lovely than any she could think of, yet always just obscured enough that she couldn't quite make it out. As time based though it got clearer, until one night she thought she could make out the direction it was coming from. Following the sound in her dreams, she found the music becoming clearer and more distinct as she grew close, until she suddenly heard a voice behind her.
"Is not the light of Amber beautiful?" the voice sounded almost as if it was singing just stating that simple question. Unsure how to respond, as she found her music player absent, Daina simply turned to face the direction the voice came from with what she hoped was a questioning expression. "It is rather unusual for it to take the form of music, but I suppose it makes sense for it to do so in your case. You are one who has been selected with the power to protect it from being extinguished, or silenced as it were. If you would leave behind what you know to do so, accept the tool from which the light is coming." Hearing her way to the source of the music, which was located a few feet away, Daina felt the floor and located an odd object that seemed to resemble a turntable hardly larger than a record
As she picked it up, the record began to float just in front of her hand while another appeared at her other hand, though she was uncertain just how she sensed it. Even as the floated within reach, though not touching her, she was able to pinpoint exactly where they were and oddly Daina began finding the knowledge of how to use them filling her mind. "An unusual device for an unusual girl," the voice from before said. "Those are a manifestation of your soul, as much a part of you as your arms. Take care of them, and they will serve you well. I wish you well with your fate."
As the voice finished speaking, Daina felt herself beginning to wake. However, something seemed off. The noises were wrong for her room, or for that matter anywhere she had been before.
For general info, she has white hair she dyes blue, and white eyes (without pupils). She wears predominantly white or black clothing, generally sticking to nice looking things that are still easy to move in. Aside from that she wears reflective purple sunglasses to hide her eyes, and purple headphones, for listening to music. Personality wise she is somewhat bubbly and aloof.
She also is blind and mute, generally speaking to others through clips of music she plays.
