Ekaterina Kallias Race:
A race of women who have cloaks that enable them to turn into swans when worn. They suffer from extreme wanderlust, wanting to keep moving from place to place. They can adapt easily to new places and people, and learn languages in a matter of weeks.
If someone takes their cloak and keeps it from them they are forced to stay with them. Most men marry the swan maiden once they take her cloak, however, if the maiden was to find her cloak she would leave immediately disregarding her new family. She leaves, and if her husband wants to find her, it's pretty impossible.
Swan maidens eat regular food like humans do, but tend to stick more to vegetarian diets, with some fish. Note: Swan maidens can only be women, unlike selkies who can be either gender. Strengths: -Requires only their cloak to transform into a swan -Can learn languages quickly Weaknesses: -Are subservient to the person who takes their cloak -Forget quickly about their past families Age:
The one with the most snacks.
135 lbs Eye Color:
AGift: Neutralize- Nullifies the gifts of any other person within a meter of her.
Races that require an item (Baku, Swan Maiden, etc.) are not affected since it’s a magical item that allows the transformation, and Ekaterina’s ability affects living (or once living in the case of vampires) things, not items.
Ranged abilities hit a ‘wall’ if they are at a distance from Ekaterina, if they are within a meter of her, they cannot use their ability at all.Vampire and ghoul biology are not affected by Ekaterina’s ability. Lycan biology is, in the sense that she can damper the heightened abilities that the curse gives them back down to human levels, but she cannot outright stop the transformation on a full moon, but she can slow it down.
Her gift cannot affect gifts that are conditions created from the body; things such as strength, speed, and things created biologically (Ex: tears).
Witch familiars are not affected by her ability. Weapon:
Eka comes from a small town, and a large family. In a family full of men, Eka and her mother were the lone women in house. Eka was taught how to take care of the house and her brothers, although she was rather spoiled when it came to getting things. What she never knew about her parents, she found out when she found a case in a forgotten part of their attic. The cape that she found in the attic she went and showed to her mother. The woman took it from her and with a final kiss to the forehead, the woman left out of the door. Thinking that it was a game Eka tried to follow, but the woman disappeared into the night.
He father's grief almost overwhelmed her. She stayed with her brothers and father, but something kept pulling at her. Telling her to go. Somewhere. Anywhere. But that feeling would quickly flee, feeling that something that was missing. When a package came in for her, a cloak, made in golden fabric, the feeling came back, full force, she put the cloak on and felt the sense of the purest freedom ever. As she was walking out of the door, she felt a hand clamp down on her shoulder, her father was looking at her with betrayal in his eyes. He snatched the cloak from her, and before her very eyes, he began to tear it to shreds. She felt a physical pain in her when it tore. She took it back and ran out of the house, holding it to her chest.
She ran as far as she could, stumbling into a wood and falling asleep there, holding the cloak to her chest. In the morning, she wiped her tears and put it on. She smiled when she felt the wings on her back. The cloak still worked, and Ekaterina knew that she had to keep moving. She eventually ended up in London, and with such a big city. She figured she might stay a while.
-Staying still for too long
