How does the character deal with anger:In a word? Poorly.Her life has never been anything less than volatile; the few blissful moment she receives that aren’t filled with rage of some kind are treasured more than a dragon hoards gold. Outbursts are common, usually inflicted on the innocent who have done little to end up on the receiving end of that inferno. She is known to lash out and attack when things get very bad, oftentimes turning to the beast within to help quell some of the anger. The worgenness handles anger much better than the woman, albeit bloodier.
- With sadness:Never one to let this feeling in, when it hits, the waves will drag her under. She lingers on the cusp of it often; haunted by memories of a life never quite lived. Most times, when she succumbs to the depths of sadness, she turns to drinking or somehow transforms the feeling into anger so that she had a reason to pick a fight and shift.
- With conflict: All the time Desiree is surrounded by conflict. Every waking moment there seems to be something that grips the woman, dragging her back into the fray. Whether it be a tiff with her headstrong husband or an all out war with a neighboring company, Desiree thrives on the high that it brings. To some, it would seem like she seeks it out. Perhaps as a coping mechanism to distract herself from the reality of her own life, perhaps just an unlucky trait.
- With change: From the moment she was drug into war in Gilneas, her life has been centered in change. For yeas, there was no constant in her life save the ghosts of her past. She clings to them for dear life, and it is clear that she does not take to change well. Desiree is not one to adapt to her environment easily, and can be described as “difficult” and “stubborn for that reason. If you were to confront her on it, you might meet a snapping remark.
What frightens your character: The loss of her family. After suffering the loss of nearly everyone in her life, she fiercely protects those who remain. Her younger brother and her husband are those who stand forefront in her mind. Though arguably those could be changing with the imminent arrival of her children come spring; just don’t bring up her idiotic escapade to Argus while carrying them.
Is your character judgmental of others: Absolutely. A proud Gilnean, anything that is not like her is wrong in some way. As many of her kin, she is wary of other races and doesn’t quite accept them in the same way she would another of her own kind. Not only that, but a stiff-backed, traditional warrior like Desiree will often look down her nose at those who don’t make wiser choices in life. Blind to her own misgivings, Desiree is snarky and rude to those she hardly knows.
Is your character generous or stingy: Someplace in between? Desiree is a cool neutral - no particular leanings unless you’ve done something to capture her attention one way or another. Though, if you were to catch her on one of her better days, the woman could be inclined to giving you a raise for work that wasn’t yet done.
Is your character generally polite or rude: Desiree is unfortunately another mild mixture of the two. Raised in nobility, she has ingrained manners that aren’t so easily disrupted. However, she is brusque and her formal greetings can be stiff and insincere. That doesn’t mean that the Gilnean isn’t capable of politeness; rather, it depends on the mood she is in prior to your advance. It’s safe to say that a stranger she has no affiliation with will be greeted with a polite advance until there is reason to pull out the attitude.
Optimistic or Pessimistic: Anyone who knows the woman can outright say she is one of Azeroth’s biggest pessimists.
Introvert or Extrovert: True neutral for this. There is no open answer either way; her voice can snap across rooms and her laughter can peel out from the city as she engages in conversation with those she doesn’t know, but she doesn’t readily open up either. Rather make small talk, or something based on a trigger she might notice, especially if there is a business deal in the makings.
Daredevil or Cautious:Bullheaded and nonsensical when she sets her mind to something, Desiree is without a doubt a daredevil. Before the conception of her twins, it wouldn’t be unheard of her for to pick random fights to prove her own worth or rush headlong into battle without a second thought. She speaks her mind freely and without a filter, even if it does cost her sometimes.
Logical or Emotional: Logical… and stupidly emotional. Desiree pushes her emotions down with an iron fist until they are forcibly pulled up from the hellish depths in which they reside. She looks at every situation with the eyes of a soldier - unless that situation had something to do with her image or the safety of one she loved. Then all reservation is out the window and you’d best prepare yourself for a fight.
Disorderly and messy or methodical and neat: Methodical and neat. Desiree’s entire life is chaotic at best, but she does her best to organize the trauma into neat drawers, opening and shutting them as she sees fit. That’s not to say that a certain pup won’t trounce all over her neatly folded memories and string them about the room, but after some time, she will always clean up her messes.
Would they rather be working or relaxing: The word best used to describe Desiree, thought it may not be safe to say it to her face, is a busybee. She doesn’t often sit idly, and even great with child she still will run about her business, risking her health and safety just so she doesn’t have to sit around and anxiously watch as that certain pup makes a mess of her neatly organized life.
