Character Name: Anise Tatlin
Canon: Tales of the Abyss

Canon Background: Background I wrote annnd Wiki

AU Background: (Describe how your character fits in with the AU setting. This can be as simple as a few sentences, or more complex if you have other characters or plots you wish to integrate with. If your character is a particular race besides human, this is also worth mentioning, you can find more about the various races in the setting info found here: http://imperial-mods.dreamwidth.org/4316.html

If you are apping an OC, this section will have to be much more extensive, giving a fuller view of the character since we don't have links for reference.)

Personality:  On the surface Anise is a bright, cheerful, happy-go-lucky girl. In actuality her happy smile is a mask to cover what’s really going on. She usually has a smile on her lips but deep down she has a lot on her mind, especially with her responsibilities and goals. Even with all that going on she always seems to try and look at the glass half full. 

Underneath her mask, she is a practical girl; she tries to think things through to the best of her ability and do what would be good for the majority. Of course, even the most mature kids have slip ups in a sense and one can see that with her dark side. It’s completely opposite of what she usually tried to portray. She curses and says threats that she intends to keep. Usually if one gets on her bad side or not in her favor they’ll easily see this side quickly, which consists of her being rather ruthless and cutthroat. Anise has the training of a soldier thanks to the Order of Lorelei. The reason for this is to help pay off her father’s debts that the church offered to take on in return for her family’s cooperation. Due to this debt, she became a money grubber and tried to marry rich. Often she could be found flirting with someone who has the biggest bank account in the vicinity. She has always been mature for her age, forced to grow up and be responsible because of her parent’s money problems and the journey she went through to save the world. 

One incident that changed her forever was when Anise had been blackmail by Mohs. She had to lead her charge, the Fon Master, into a trap, or else her parents would be killed. Unfortunately since she didn’t have enough trust in the people in her group, she followed his orders and led her assumed first love to his death. This changed her, making her feel responsible for what happened to him. She decided to change her ways, becoming less focused on money and more on carrying on Ion’s vision. She wants to become the first female Fon Master and help the church and it’s people live in a world without the score. 

After the Fon Master's death, she has gotten better with hiding behind her mask and is a bit more open and truthful. Anise is also an information gatherer; she likes to hear all the gossip and know what’s going on 24/7.This is mainly out of habit from working as a mole in the group (This of course was forced on her since she had to work in order to pay off her parent's debt.) The puppeteer is also bright and witty; she was able to learn a complicated magic spell really quickly just by sneaking a glance in a spell casting dojo. Of course the down side to that is she can be manipulative and tricky if and when she wants to be. 

Combat Style: (Summarize how your character fights, if at all. This can include general weapon style, magical powers, or any technological gadgets they use in combat. In general, no matter the style all characters should be assumed to be at around equivalent combat strength. The power level we're shooting for is being able to hold their own when surrounded by a group of ordinary soldiers, but not able to defeat a group of elite soldiers by themselves.

Note: your character does not have to be a fighter in canon to be one in Imperial Saga. You are welcome to make a non-combatant character a combatant, we encourage you to be creative and adapt their trademarks into a unique combat style.)

Kingdom or Faction:  Imperial Guards
For characters joining a kingdom, please also put "Active" or "Passive" by their chosen Kingdom. Active Kingdom members are part of the state, whereas Passive simply live or are from a Kingdom. Characters are highly encouraged to be part of a Kingdom in some way or another.)

Primary Role: Intelligence Operative (Operative) under the guise of a Servant

Soldier or Siege Company: n/a

Tarot Cards: (Choose 3 Tarot cards from the list [ http://imperial-mods.dreamwidth.org/5308.html ] representing your character's past, present, and future. In general this is up to the player, but we do ask that you pick cards that are appropriate. The selected cards will be usable ICly to attain special effects.)

Title:  Anise the Flat  The Puppeteer

Artifacts: n/a

Setting Considerations: (This section is optional. If there are cool or interesting setting concepts from your character's canon that may be necessary to carry out their plotlines or that you think would be interesting here, list it here. Depending on what it is, the mods will consider it and we'll do our best to make it work if at all possible.)

Notes: (This section is optional. If your character requires any special exceptions or other mod rulings or additional information, it goes here.)

Sample Post: There are three acceptable sample posts, and one is required as part of the application process. The first is to make a post with at least 3 threads of 5 or more comments from your character [15 total] in the Testrun box [ http://testrun-box.dreamwidth.com/ ] or a similar musebox/dressing room (Dear_Mun is NOT an acceptable sample post). The second is to answer at least 10 of the questions on the Tarot page [ http://imperial-mods.dreamwidth.org/5308.html ]. Finally, if you are active with the character in another RP, you may link to posts and threads or the character's journal as a sample. Should you have a sample that doesn't quite fit, you may supplement it with a second sample (a few threads in a testrun and 5 questions on the Tarot page, for example).

Drawing the Fool means your character is about to undertake a journey of some sort, from which they will ultimately emerge stronger - should they survive.
