Arabella is as sweet as sugar but don't let that mistake you-- she isn't someone to be messed with. Her trust issues make her anxious easily so she tends not to be open to making any new friends at all. Although she has been used and hurt time and time again, Bella is oblivious to those who might do so even with her trust issues. Once she falls, she falls hard. Fashion is one of her favourite passions and with that passion comes no censorship which can be both a good and a bad thing with her.
Note: This character's history is getting a whole re-do; stand by for changes.
Before the girl who would later be known as Arabella Carmichael was born, a woman named Esme Carmichael would later be said to be her mother. Being a fabulous designer, the brunette was skilled with her fingers, always sewing here and there. Starting at the age of fifteen, her hands would usually get aches and pains just from sewing so much and quickly as she did. Esme was always in her little world daydreaming, which then resulted in what was seen as wonderful dresses from her imagination. Nothing extreme but something that was so creative, it seemed to have surprised everyone on how good it looked. No one could say she wasn't skilled in the trait.
One day, a guy named Harvey Lincoln came into Esme's second shop for men 'The New Urban' to buy a suit. The girl most likely would've left if it weren't for him entering the shop at that moment, it was love at first sight. Soon, they became almost hard to break up. Connected by the heart, they ended up staying together for only eight months at best. Despite their love being so fierce and sometimes too intense for others who would go on casual flings or weren't with anyone at the moment, he had always seemed to be disappearing at night and Esme was worried he was cheating on her. She always prepared to ask him in the morning but as soon as he kissed her like she was Cinderella, she forgot all about what she was going to say. Having a tiring job as a God kept him away from his beloved as he had to leave her to attend his duties on Olympus. Always doing this caused the woman with her young, bright ideas, to have dark, gloomy ideas. She was just too heartbroken and irate to imagine, to dream, to believe. Finally, after a while, she got a letter about where Harvey had been all this time, since he needs to attend the dreams of people, and that if she ever had a child, she would be a demigod. The letter explained Mount Olympus and the ancient Greek Gods who were said to be mythical. Surprise, surprise, like many other average mortals, Esme thought it was a joke and just thought it was his fake reasoning for leaving him. Did he not love her enough to at least say there was another woman? Or did he just not care anymore to tell her this now? Thoughts swirled through her brain as she thought on this. Two months later Esme realized she was pregnant with a baby child and decided to name her Arabella after her grandmother, Arabella. Her middle name was then Caroline, it just fit with her smile that was like a sky full of sunshine and happiness. Arabella Caroline Carmichael. She was born in Toronto, Canada. Although she had now siblings, she managed to keep to herself and still have fun. Loving the camp she would go to, Camp Bow-waka, where she learned how to shoot an arrow [hence the title], she became excellent at it a young age. She always had dreams about how her father would look like due to never knowing him but her mother would usually exclaim that he was a "great man with pearl blue eyes". On days where her mother would drink and the nightmares would take over, she would say that he was a a total jackass who left her with a child. Arabella ignored this and took this as a normal thing for what would happen to people when they were to drink. When her mother tucked her in at night, sober and clean, she'd smooth her hair over and apologize although the young girl wouldn't understand what for, but she still replied that it was alright.
Her childhood was pretty basic and easy to understand really as she went to a huge prep school and as a result of her mom being a great designer, always had the newest clothes. When she became 13, she was voted president of her year, something she was later proud of. But her Vice President, Marisa wasn't always as she had seemed... Or at least how everyone assumed she was. Her huge shirts were taken off and that's when Arabella saw huge but raggedy wings. Marisa screeched, "Time to die half-blood!" All of a sudden a boy named Nick through her a sword and swooped in to her rescue. At first he sliced away one part of the harpies wing. She was totally freaked out. Finally cutting off the head, the harpy evaporated in a huge puff of golden sparkles. The boy, told to be Nick, told her it was time. She was confused and shook her head. She then ran home terrified. She told her mom about it, concerned at first but hoping they could just laugh it off and pretend it was all but a dream. Her mom would gulp and then remember the letter every time it was mentioned, but she kept quiet about it knowing that Arabella wouldn't get it. It was far too early to show little Bella the truth about it all. She thought many conspiracies until she realized-- it couldn't have possibly made sense. And so she settled with telling her mother and herself that she was just daydreaming. It was easier to believe it wasn't real than face reality, and life seemed okay until her next few birthdays. It was monsters, monsters, and monsters. It was like she couldn't escape them. Somehow, she avoided them. Either with Nick by her side, who she typically avoided or just by trying to run away/hide from it.
Her monster attacks came to an end when an empousa arrived at the store. Being terrified and trying to run away, she ran into Nick where he finally just decided to bring her camp with her mother's opinion. Loving her but not wanting her to keep going through this, Esme finally allowed Arabella to go. Both Nick and Arabella went on their way, with only the gods and pack of necessities on their side.
As they tried to get camp, it caused them to take two cabs. She worried about her mother, but he assured her she was safe. The trip was about 3 days long as she liked to walk with him and ask questions about "camp half blood" and the mist, and the Greeks. At first she was confused. Why were they going through a farm? He then told her that they were going through the "fake-berry farm" as he called it. The farm terrain was just so humans don't get suspicious. When they were about to go in, he took off his "pants" to get comfortable. She screamed, "GOAT!" He huffed, "Quiet down and the political term is "Satyr". All of a sudden, out of a dark area where no one would catch it coming, a huge Scorpion crawled out of there. He then stole her sword and ran and the scorpion jumped. The jump failed and it fell on its back. He then pierced it through the stomach. Throwing up from the shock and trauma, the girl fainted. He carried her as she fell asleep in his arms. Soon, the whole camp found out who her godparent was after a few tendencies she was shown to have. The whole drama happened so fast that she didn't even realize that two days before, she turned 17 years old.
Powers of a Child of Morpheus (3/6/9 Month Powers unlocked):
Children of Morpheus have the ability to create dream-like illusions of attacks so realistic that they are most likely to catch an enemy off guard; however, if they miss they are left vulnerable to counterattack.
Children of Morpheus can absorb the dreams of others for a short time, removing their memories of them and empowering the user to be faster and stronger. Once the enhancement subsides, the target will remember their dreams if they wish to do so and are immune to further use of this power for a moderate time.
Children of Morpheus have the ability to make someone think they are seeing their worst nightmares brought to life for a short time; attempting to scare them into not attacking. The user cannot attack while they are using this power.
Children of Morpheus have the ability to cause a person to day dream as if the child of Morpheus was a friend, causing the person to no longer desire to attack them for a short time. If the user attacks while the day dream is in effect, it will instantly stop working, so the power is purely defensive.
Children of Morpheus often receive the current thoughts of people in the surrounding area while asleep. They can turn off this ability if they wish.
Children of Morpheus heal faster while they are asleep and dreaming.
Children of Morpheus are partially conscious while asleep, able to wake themselves up at will.
Children of Morpheus have the ability to send a small wave of energy which will cause anyone affected to fall asleep and enter a vivid dream for a short time; after the effects have worn off, a person is immune to further effects of this for a moderate time. If the user wishes, the wave may just force the target into a vivid daydream for a short time. This will require less energy, but will have the same limitations.
Children of Morpheus have the ability to look into people’s dreams as they sleep and even manipulate them as they wish.
Children of Morpheus are able to astral project, they can use this for multiple reasons, however, their physical body is vulnerable and they can not effect anything on the physical plane while astral projecting.
3 Months After a Character is Made
Children of Morpheus can create dream-like illusions in order to twist other's perception of reality or make everyone around them see something that isn't really there. However, the illusion isn't physical and therefore is only a trick of sight. The bigger the change in perception, the more power drained. They can also confuse single individuals in the same fashion.
6 Months After a Character is Made
Children of Morpheus have the ability to manifest a small shadowy creature to fight alongside them for a short time; the shadow takes the form of whatever a person’s worst nightmare is when they fight it, however, it is smaller in size if the thing from their nightmares is large. They can command the nightmare and can create up to 3 copies of it, it cannot be bigger than 2 to 3 times the size of the user and doesn’t wield any extraordinary abilities. Ex: the nightmare can fly if the target’s nightmare is something winged like a bird. But if it’s a dragon, it may not breathe fire.
9 Months After a Character is Made
Children of Morpheus are able to transform the surrounding area into their own dream-world, an alternate reality fabricated from the user’s dreams. The dream-world will take any appearance the user desires. Anyone within 30 meters of the user will be trapped within the dream world as well. Within it, the user can fly, teleport, are able to create psychic constructs and are immune to all attacks. They’re also aware of everything happening there. After a short time, the dream-world reverts to a normal environment and the user is left incredibly drained. The user will not be able to move and could possibly faint.
