Architect of Worlds[/style]
[style=letter-spacing:3px;font-size:40px;line-height:16px;font-family:Times]History[/style][tabs][tab=Past][sbar=580,300]On November 3rd, 1996, a pair of girls was born. They looked nothing alike, yet they were twins in both age and blood. One such girl was named Délise LeFer, born into one of the wealthiest and oldest families to have survived for a millennium. Though for her siblings, this would be the end of their backstory, Délise’s history has a little more to it.
The LeFer family, though untraceable, was born over a thousand years ago in a place now known as France. The clan itself was not quite a family back then, but rather a community of magi who followed the studies of Morgan le Fay. Familiar name, no? Whether the LeFers are direct descendants of Morgan or if they were merely one of the students to the family is an ancient discussion long lost, and even to those who survived those years the answer was not clear. Nonetheless, this group of mages eventually built stronger ties in marriage, and eventually the single cohesive family now known was created, though with the name LeFay.
The LeFay’s possessed superb influence in western Europe, acting as courtiers and puppeteers controlling monarchs, and even occasionally were monarchs themselves. However, the LeFay’s were more absorbed in research than politics, though what short periods they had as world leaders was nothing scornful. Eventually, the LeFay family thinned out and centralized in France, becoming a powerful and influential Aristocracy in the French court. This itself did not last for long, as the beginnings of the French Revolution began to stir. Before the outbreak of major violence, the LeFay’s fled to New France, or French Canada as one would now consider it. There, they changed their family name to LeFer, and quietly shrunk into obscurity before the British Empire had taken control and unified Canada. Using their money and local political influence, the LeFers were spared major damage in exchange of aiding Britain’s conquest.
With the rage of France coming down on their heads, the LeFer’s quickly vanished from the political faces, hiding in seclusion. Over these hundreds of years, the LeFer’s stunted their magical bloodline, usually by marrying into nonmagi families and distilling their bloodline. By 1923, there were no known LeFer magi, and in the same year, what last remaining connections they had to France were destroyed.
Because of all this, Délise did not immediately know of her own powers, nor were they active enough to accidentally occur. Instead, she lived a relatively normal life with her siblings, particularly with her sister Fleur. While Fleur picked up a signing talent, Délise focused her own efforts on the violin. However, Délise also developed a taste for the metal genre, and learned some limited electric guitar before reverting to her fiddle.
As with her other siblings, Délise was homeschooled for most of her life, sheltered for the most part in the LeFer mansion and surrounded by her studies and music. As such, her only friends were really her siblings, but even then, she did not get along well with Falque, and were frequently at odds with each other. Some suggest it was because they were rivals in both musical talent as well as intellect, and Délise disliked her age being a factor against her. Whatever the issue, Délise looked to towards Eric as her role-model, instead of her bigger brother.
When Eric left to head south, Délise was nearly devastated from her loss, and her relationship with Falque distanced even further. They rarely spoke to each other, and Délise spent most of her time with Fleur. Since Fleur was absorbed into botany, Délise resorted to the same, picking a similar interest in gardening. Eventually, however, she could not keep up the interest, and Délise found herself very much alone in her family. This only worsened with the Dawn, when her other siblings developed another bond to share between them.
When the Dawn occurred, Délise did not realize any new powers. Instead, she realized puberty at an oddly accelerated effect. Being thirteen in a older teen’s body was not helpful for Délise’s esteem. Many would-be suitors of hers were older men, and her experiences with them quickly led to a load of discomfort and insecurity. She realized that many of these men were after her body moreso than herself, and as such, puberty only became more difficult as she changed faster than her peers, especially Fleur, who merely resembled a larger version of her child self.
Learning she had magical ability, in comparison, was almost a massive relief for Délise. It would be lying to say she did grow to have some envy for her other siblings, all of whom developed fantastic powers instead of some over-aged body. Despite the LeFer’s destruction of their magical heritage, much of their old work survived, especially their artificer research. Délise did not interest herself in those, however, but in a much more obscure art: Time-space. After attempting her first spells, Délise quickly learned of another gift, something that did not quite die amidst the purge. Délise could cast spells she learned instantly, without components or rituals.
With Eric and Falque already enrolled, and Fleur wanting any excuse to head there herself, Délise’s parents spared no worry in sending her to Avalon alongside her sister Fleur in Azura. Though their schools differed, they were inseparable in any other way. Besides, Délise could not revive the LeFer bloodline by studying from dated and even obsolete texts. Even if it was a Red Claw school, an old rival of the LeFay’s cabal, it was still the best place for Délise to learn magic, and to be with her sister among similar friends.
