Why bother with anything if it doesn't feel good?
Description: Her movements are languid and lazy like a sleepy housecat, but her toned figure suggests she is capable of physical exertion. If she really wanted to. She is a tall statuesque woman with long toned legs and graceful arms. Her coloring is dusky: bronze skin and dark chestnut wavy hair with a hint of red to it. Her hair is often loose, and manages to look tousled despite her best efforts. Her gray eyes contrast with the earthiness of her skin, and makes a color that might be mundane on someone else look stunning on her.
Personality: Gesa is always the life of the party. She enjoys the pleasant aspects of living. Good drink, good company, and good times are her priorities. That isn't to say she isn't capable of hard work. She absolutely is. How else could she afford to gamble and drink near constantly in her spare time? Her labor is expended only for the pursuit of revelry. She is impulsive, and she rarely stays still or in one place for very long. She likes having a good time, and if you're a downer she will try to turn your frown upside down with partying. She is generous when it comes to having a good time. After all, if it works to keep her sadness at bay surely it should work for you?
Background: Gesa's life, she has always said, was shaped by the bad habits of her ancestors. Somewhere down the line there was a drunkard gambler who managed to get him or herself enthralled. She doesn't know who, and as far as she knows her family always served House Kennex of Stormward. She was born a week before Lord Aethan Kennex, and her mother served as his wetnurse and then nursemaid. Because of this she was always close to the family, but also very separate. She may have played with them, but birth had destined her to a different path.
It was a path she had no interest in walking because who wants to walk when one can laze about? Gesa knew she didn't want to toil her life away as a thrall, mostly because she hates toil, and she always envied her noble masters for the fine things they had. Her path became clear at seventeen when a traveling entertainer came to Stormward. There was her easy life, she decided. She would escape and become an entertainer.
Escaping wasn't difficult. She stowed away on a merchant ship heading towards Setarco. No one missed her until it was too late. They assumed she was hiding to avoid work as was her habit. Stowing away wasn't so hard, either. Gesa is very good about lazing about, and did so about the cargo. She is also good at making friends and flirting. She secured a friendship with a young sailor and with a few suggestive comments she had no intention of following through with she managed to gain food and water for the duration of the trip.
Setarco was rough at first, but it also provided her with a place to learn the skills she needed to be an entertainer. She learned to sing, dance, and tell stories. She also learned how to smile even when it's hard so she could get what she wants. And if you're sad? Well, there is plenty of things to do or take that can be distracting enough to put a smile on your face.
