Champion Bliss Whisper

I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented - the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.

Description: Despite her loose, windspun brown curls looping around an oval face, there's something so sharp about her; a bearing that shifts from cocky to outright impudent when she's flashing a particularly challenging smile. It's a sweetly bowed mouth, and she's on the tall side (if just), with an adorably upturned nose and slender shoulders. Her graceful carriage gives her an air of delicacy anchored by athletic legs and wide hips.

(Heavy black kohl has been applied around her eyes, with bronzing tones applied to her cheeks and bright red lipstick.)

Personality: Celia was never satisfied. As she's gotten older, she's discovered ways to find (fleeting) satisfaction, but her desire for a good time outstrips all. She likes fun, and irreverence, and doing whatever she wants, when she wants. No one always gets what they like, of course, and Bliss can certainly play along with social mores when it suits her. She's even patient, in a terrifyingly predatorial sort of way. She might play along for days, weeks - even years! As long as she wants the payoff badly enough, it doesn't bother her. Conversely, if something that seemed like a good, fun idea loses its lustre, she won't hesitate to drop it - forgotten just as fast as last week's breakfast. Bliss is the sort of woman who might be perplexed at someone attacking her for something she said last Tuesday. "But, that was three weeks ago!" She burns hot and hard, but once it's done (or once she's won), she is gracious with her forgiveness.

Background: The Lyceum city stats are famous for many things: dangerous women, dangerous men, wine, silk, sun, and passion in politics and swordplay, both. Bliss, nee Celia, might as well be made of all these things in equal measure. She was a quarrelsome, charming child, the only daughter of the Master at Arms serving Duke Leo Fidante('s holdings) in Tor. Her father loved his daughter, and taught her everything he knew. Everything he knew was about fighting, drinking, and wooing women. She got so good at these things that it's no surprise she ran off when her first lover (a local official) tried to find her a husband. Out drinking her frustrations away, she met a handsome swordsman on the run for killing his opponent during a duel, said forget this place, and then did.

Their torrid affair lasted right up until the time she realized he couldn't teach her any more about fencing. She dumped his ass and found herself in the borders of the Oathlands across the Lycene Split, making her way by parking herself outside the rare tavern and challenging the knights and sellswords coming out with mocking singsongs and extravagant boasting. . .all backed up by her shockingly quick swordplay and her utter lack of hesitation. Bliss, she called herself, part of some joke or rhyme that just stuck. She talked herself into a fancy party one night, flirting and flustering her way through the room to a tipsy meeting with the glowing blonde angel who seemed to be the belle of the ball. She was the best looking girl there, can you really blame a woman for stealing that kiss? That kiss on the dance floor. In front of the lovely angel's intended. Honest mistake.

You can't win all the time. After taking a serious wound to her shoulder, she had to slink away and nurse it in friendlier climes. Not able to reliably fight her way out of all the trouble she talked herself into, she had to reconsider her actions for the first unfun time in ever. So she said forget this, and came to Arx to join the Whispers. She could still sing, and she could put on quite the show against opponents who are also playing it up (and less intently thirsty for your blood). Why not get famous? That could be fun.

  • Name Summary
    Agatha The Champion Whisper. She fights like a scamp, full of bluster, tricks, and plots. I'm going to have to watch out for her. That could trip me up but good!
    Alessandro Lives up to her reputation in all the best ways.
    Barric Sometimes names are completely unnecessary, they help though when a little time has passed. She is intriguing and challenging enough to keep interest. The question is, how much of that is truth, and how much is performance.
    Cadenza She seems like interesting but was so quiet. I"ll have to get her when she has more wine in her maybe.
    Caith The life of the party! She's beautiful, fun and a captivating storyteller -- someone after my own heart. I stumbled upon her -- or she stumbled upon me -- during a pub crawl and I was treated to one of the funniest (most fun?) nights of my life!
    Caspian Is there such a thing as too lovely? Too charming? If there is, Bliss Whisper would be my first example. She almost could talk me into carving a figurine of her. Almost.
    Cleo She cares for Elgana very much, enough so as to make me feel plain next to the Princess. She is very proud of herself, it means more when someone else sings praises than ones self.
    Coraline The most fascinating woman I have met in quite a while, and I have met several. Every time I think I have any understanding of her she shows another aspect of herself and throws me for a loop all over again.
    Cullen Whispers are great. Whispers who encourage questionable behavior in public with charming young women of dubious backgrounds? Even better. Great fun to be had, I hope to run into her more!
    Darren It was a pleasure meeting the Champion Whisper. Her polite and solicitous nature seemed genuine. I look forward to knowing more of her.
    Duarte A skewering wit indeed. Much too clever for me.
    Echo Both a Champion and a Whisper, and though I can attest to the fact that she's good company, I've yet to meet her in the sparring sands. Hopefully soon!
    Ezekiel Such grace in the dance, such lovely features and such lovely friends. She even had me perform for the King!
    Fatima She makes for a perfect partner in crime. It's easy to see why she's such a well liked champion, what with charm and grace in droves.
    Faye A fascinating woman who is quite different from myself, but I have the feeling we would find quite a bit in common, if we get the chance to get to know each other better.
    Gareth Bliss of Many Various Things. A champion, courteasan, and many more things apparently. A lovely sort if you're into that sort of thing.
    Ignacio A pleasant woman, seems to be a bit quiet. Seems there is something more to this woman that meets the eye.
    Isolde As beautiful and charming as I remember. I do hope we can meet again for drinks in the future. Her letters were a pleasant surprise but her company more so.
    Jeffeth Wow. I---I--.....Wow. We need to meet again.
    Jordan I see why she has so many fans. Beyond the gorgeous physical appearance, that is. And good gods that's a lovely smile, and she carries a nifty looking rapier. I want to watch her fight. Maybe I'll learn something from the way she moves in a fight.
    Kia Champions definitely like to make a show. At least she listened once she saw the truth of the matter. She knows how to handle a sword though, maybe I could learn something from her.
    Lorenzo She somehow manages to be both blunt and charming, in the way of a skilled showman. I like her, and I hope to catch her performance in a duel soon.
    Lou I fear I may have broken her head this evening, talking about all the Explorery research that I've been involved in, and getting her up to speed on a few things. For which, I'm very sorry. But, I hope you're willing to talk to me again in the future!!
    Lys Beautiful and legendary. Always the life of the party when I see her.
    Margerie Ahhh, that advocate of passion from the journals. And practicing such flirtations with the young ladies. She is gifted at the craft. I wonder how she has walked such an intense path without being burned to the bone?
    Mirari Anyone who lies my clothing designs can't be all that bad. We'll see how much we clash while I'm designing for her. Two strong personalities walking into each other. It will be very lovely, and hilarious.
    Pasquale Champion, Whisper, Devotion, and entirely charming. I pity those in the city who cannot appreciate a show put on by this one.
    Petal She has a great name, seems to be injured and has a likable way about her. She took the focus on my name!
    Reese A champion Whisper, she seems friendly.
    Renato We agree on a great many things though it makes one wonder, do we agree enough to get along famously, or like two cats who are so alike they must fight? I would be happy with either, depending on if we can make up well after the fight.
    Rinel She's nice enough, I suppose. But I feel like every other sentence is a test. Of what, I'm not sure.
    Sidney An excellent duelist -- verbally, at least, though I have no reason to doubt her sterling reputation as a swordswoman. Anyone can turn a head, but Bliss has the far more impressive ability to turn whole bodies to gravitate around her. I just need to keep her from stabbing me, and I'm sure we'll get along marvelously.
    Sparte The Champion Whisper is larger than life! Which isn't hard when you're that short, but don't worry, I'm sure she'll stand on a crate or something if she has to. You probably don't want to be the one that makes it so she has to.
    Tomwell She has a feather hat, and sings Limerance songs, and is cool under pressure, and is quite impressive with a sword!
    Tyrval She is almost certainly the most attractive and charming individual to share a story of daring sticksmanship. Her fanatical and alarming fanbase is justified.
    Valarian Whisper Bliss! I've heard of her, she's quite the fantastic person, one of those everyone knows about because they're smart and pretty and talented and graceful. I could probably learn something from her about being more, um. Subtle.
    Vera She's everything a whisper should be. Beautiful and a creature of grace and charm. I only hope that we can meet again.
    Vercyn A bold and self-assured Champion, her style of fighting is quite unique. It is rare to see Princess Agatha so focused in a spar, and this Champion managed to make her do this. Impressive.
    Zebulon She is an amazing and acrobatic Champion! Watching her fly is like a raptor bearing talons!
