Urban Magic Youtubers AU - Marzia - Nereid, A Nymph of The Mediterranean Sea
“Once you see the inner beauty, it tends to show on the outside as well.”
Nymphs have been recognized throughout history as the most beautiful creatures known to mankind. From the dryads of the forest to the lampads of the Underworld, their grace and charm has inspired the Greeks and the Romans to attempt to capture them in written word and painted form.
While the nymphs of history have ranged from kindhearted to neutral to outright evil(as varied as Mother Nature herself), Marzia is possibly the most gracious and graceful there ever was. While most sea dwellers stay away from the surface in this modern world of all-seeing submersibles and iron barges, Marzia ventures onto land, basking the beauty of the world above the waves.
Soon, she bid her home waters farewell and set off to explore more of what the solid earth had to offer. Swimming inland by rivers and streams all over the world. She arrived in New York eight years ago, falling in love with the hustle and bustle and quickly making a name for herself among the Manhattan elites as an up-and-coming designer determined to spread her admiration for the world to others. Though behind closed doors, her socialite peers wonder what someone as exceptional as her is doing dating a hot dog vendor…
(I was already gonna make Marzia a nymph of some kind then I learned that the Aegean/Mediterranean Sea have nymphs specifically for them. 50 of them actually. all named. but to heck with that. I realize i made her a bit The Little Mermaid-sque but less with an obsession for the surface world and more an equal love for both land and sea)
The phone rang, it was Ed. "Hello, Ms. Kapelput! It's me, Edward... Oswald's friend. I was wondering... it's a beautiful day outside, would you like to come with me to the park?"
