Name: Courtney Madison Ambrose
Date of Birth: 16th June
Height: 165cm / 5’5”
Psychology and sociology
Astronomy and astrology
Associated Animal: Deep-Sea Dragonfish
Spell Justification: Like many deep-sea predators, dragonfish use their bioluminescence as a lure to attract prey and signal mates. This concept of “attract” is extended to telekinesis of objects. However as she's starting out, she only has limited range; she can also only move objects which she could physically carry, except from a range.
Very pampered, Courtney’s never had to take a punch, let alone learn to deal one.
Courtney’s not very good at staying on task, and grows impatient quickly; she’s had no reason to be physically tough either.
While she’s not particularly trained in any one area, she can think on her feet and problemsolve fairly well.
Courtney grasps new information fairly quickly and is observant enough to spot it in the first place. She’s also excellent with strategy and is fairly booksmart.
Vivacious and charming, Courtney is a socialite who reads intentions very well. She herself is very witty and magnetic, drawing people towards her.
Likes / Dislikes:
her 8 doggos!
TV soap operas and sappy romance
various shades of flavoured lipgloss
socialising, partying, etc.
shallow, superficial topics
being alone, especially for a long time
lack of change; stability; no excitement or adventure

Courtney is charming and witty; she’s very extroverted and loves people and learning about them, flitting from group to group. She’s also very observant and quickly grasps people’s traits and mannerisms, and can use that to her advantage. Curious about other people, she has a very adaptable nature and can appropriately adjust herself depending on the people.
However,she’s also fairly fickle and fussy; her fear of commitment means it’s difficult for her to grow properly attached to others. While she understands what people are, she doesn’t know how to actually connect with ease. It’s also because of her short attention span that means she finds it difficult to finish tasks, leaving her restless. When things are sour, Courtney is hot-tempered and impatient, and can be vicious if she’s particularly upset because she can dig where it hurts, given her observant nature.
She was a wealthy, pampered only child, raised by a corrupt politician and his trophy wife. While she bonded to both parents and loved them dearly, their rocky, infidelious relationship left her feeling cynical and frustrated.
They could be frequently busy, and when they weren’t, she was more of an object to them than a daughter - gushed over, played with, but when it came to anything serious, they couldn’t fully connect to her and grew impatient, leaving her with a nanny. As a result, she developed two natures; acting out and throwing tantrums, or being a perfect little charmer as they wanted.
Regardless, she lived a comfortable life; she attended the best schools, had all the material wealth she could dream of, and developed friendships of various depths. From a young age, she understood there was a role she needed to fill and was clever enough to show that she could, giving her an adaptable nature.
But she couldn’t stay in that role forever. For the longest time, she felt something was missing, an emptiness where ambitions should have been. She wanted adventure; she wanted something different, to be on the move, and to actually use her abilities for more than just amusing guests by telekinetically lifting teacups or smoothing someone’s shirt. She may not have had physical prowess, but she knew she was smart; and so, she threw herself into Lantana instead. It was a place for her to find herself, and feel as though her abilities had an actual use fighting the umbra her father campaigned against.
It took a great deal of convincing, arguing, fussing, but eventually, her parents relented.
They thought she would see for herself how tough and difficult it would be for her, and to quickly give up.
This was the one thing she knew she wouldn’t let go of.
Her freckles hecking GLOW (she doesn’t actually like them tho. She’s been too conditioned to OOH, UNBLEMISHED COMPLEXION WOW)
She has EIGHT ENTIRE DOGGOS, they’re black and tan coonhounds that her dad uses for hunting game. It’s ok tho she loves them and paints their toenails
