- Hayley DuBouis

Faction: Veritum Unitum
Appearance: (See Picture)
Personality: Despite being a docile and rational person most of the time, befitting her element, Noemie possessed a fiery temper. Often letting her pride and anger blur her better judgment, Noemie sometimes took unnecessary risks to prove herself. Noemie was a kind and sweet girl deep down; however, she got furious easily. She did not give up easily, either and was able to take some extreme attitudes when not controlled. She was also a good friend; however, she could sometimes control the boys of the group because she was the only girl.
History: Stephanie lived on a small island in the Atlantic Ocean named St. Genevieve. During her time there, a small civil war erupted between the Tula and the Lucias (two native tribes that inhabited the island) for a struggle of power and domination. Guerrilla warfare pervaded the streets and mobs raved during the night, howling as they shoot down their enemies while intoxicated with fury.
One eerie night, a group raided Stephenie's home. Her father, Judas, died by distracting the invaders, giving Stephenie a chance to escape. Stephenie's mother, Sonya, (who was sick in bed), however, died at the hands of the fire the intruders started with a couple of matches. Stephenie, who was now an orphan, ran aimlessly. She didn't know where to go. Regardless, she looked at Mt. Lucinda (what her people called Mt. Juaya) and remembered the legend of how people found sanction atop the mountain the god of flames (Phlegethon). As she heard gunshots, she hesitantly headed up towards Mt. Lucinda. A forest fire pledged as she raced towards the peak of the mountain chocking of black smoke.
As she reached the top, she was greeted by a boy about her age. He introduced himself as Kei, a native of the island like herself, who had lived on top of the mountain for most of his life. He had promised her refuge after Stephenie pronounced her tragedy about her misfortunes to him. Over a series of weeks, the two became close friends and eventually formed an intimate relationship with one another.
After Stephenie announced she was pregnant with his child, Kei became more distant towards her. Stephenie was hesitant to bear her child due to the civil war still ensuing, and contemplated to abort her unborn daughter. Kei was completely against the notion and persuaded her against it. After nine months, the baby finally came and was delivered. However, a rebel group swarmed the hospital and a myriad of innocent people including the patients admitted into the hospital where shoot down and murdered. Stephenie prayed as the rioters drew nearer. The voice of a nymph echoed inside her, asking her if she was willing to make a sacrifice for the safety of her child. She pleaded yes.
The earth shook as the mouth of Mt. Lucinda glowed a fiendish, crimson color in the night sky. Someone had announced that the hospital was on fire, but all exists were shut off. Stephenie wasn't unease about the situation, but she understood that she was giving up her life for her child's. After an fifteen minutes, the entire building burnt down along with several others. Stephenie died in the accident, but Noemie was found later by a rescue squad. She was later adopted out of compassion by a couple who worked on a humanitarian organization.
Oliver and Hayley (the couple) traveled back to America along with their newly adopted daughter, Noemie DuBouis. Noemie grew up content with her lifestyle. Although seeing herself as an artist, Noemie at the age of twelve won a one-year modeling contract at a local competition in New Orleans and with her adoptive parents, moved to Milan, Italy. After Noemie spent a year modeling throughout Europe, she, Oliver and Hayley moved back to New Orleans. There, she attended the Celeste Eerie Art Institution in Los Angeles, where she trained in art and fashion design until she joined another modeling agency.
Noemie DuBouis at the age of fourteen was on her way to Newark Airport with her adoptive mother, Hayley, at the steering wheel. As they raced to get to the airport hoping not to miss their flight, Hayley crashed her car into a tree. Both were unconscious as the car light aflame. Noemie somehow managed to survive the incident and barely had any burn marks. Hayley, however, had a more tragic fate. She had been completely incinerated and had died in the disturbance. She was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
Tragedy endured as Noemie grew older. Sixteen years of age, Noemie sought a distraction, an escape to Hayley's death. She craved pleasure and comfort form others. Noemie desired to get as much out of life as possible, to get it while she could. She unknowingly wanted to make a connection with someone and hold on for dear life in a fragile world, and she did. However, her affair with her photographer, Quincy Stance was abusive and treacherous. Quincy became more sexually attracted towards Noemie, he attempted to persuade her into intercourse. When she denied, he assaulted and raped her. Noemie woke up with naked with bruises covering her body behind an apartment complex. After her photo shoot the next day, she had discovered that Quincy had moved to Quebec for a better job opportunity in film making. Saddened and furious about the outcome of her situation, she abandoned her work as a model and returned home to New Orleans.
Shortly after she returned home, she realized that she was pregnant after taking multiple pregnancy test that day. After a week of contemplation, Noemie went to an abortion clinic with one of her personal friends and proceeded to abort her unborn child.
At the age of seventeen, Noemie auditioned for competitive roles on screen television and successfully got a recruiting act in many fantasy and supernatural shows. Midway through the year, she continued to learn how to design attire while modeling in Pompeii. She struggled to keep up with her over productive life, finding it difficult to do her school work while modeling and acting. Once her contract expired, she attended a local secondary school in Milan where she excelled academically. She became popular with the student body and quickly formed friendships with the members in her class.
After the term was over and summer begun, she received a notice from an agency located on a small island named St. Genevieve (she didn't know that she was born there). After contemplating the offer, she finally headed out to St. Genevieve with her adoptive father, Oliver. The first day, Noemie and a group of girls were dressed in the ancient attire the natives wore on the island. They would be posing atop of a volcano named Mt. Lucinda for their photo shoot.
As the reached the peak of the volcano, three hellhounds emerged from their shadows and attacked the girls. A satyress (who was in the guise of one of the models) demolished the first one by silting its throat open with one of her daggers. She handed Aeriel a bow and arrow, each tip ornamented in celestial bronze. The motions were almost instinctive. Noemie missed the first couple of times, but the shot the hellhound in the leg with one of her arrows. The massive dog disappeared in a green smoke. The remaining hellhound pounced towards Noemie. She barely had time to lift her bow and aim, but she managed to shoot the hellhound in the chest.
The satyress, Euphemia, managed to explain Noemie's heritage and how she hailed from the Greek god Phlegethon. The satyress elaborated on how the island was brimmed with monsters, and that the two needed to travel to a place called Camp Half Blood. Noemie agreed only if Euphemia could get her and her family off the island. Once they reached town, it was too late. Sirens had allured Hayley and Oliver (along with any others who were on the beach) into the ocean to drown.
Noemie swelled with sorrow and anger as the ground shook violently. Fire swelled and erupted spontaneously throughout the streets. Small rivers of magma poured out of the mouth of St. Lucia. Before she realized what was happening, Noemie fainted on the dunes of the shore. The satyress carried Noemie where the ocean meet the land and summoned a sea nymph. The nymph conjured two hippocampus and permitted Euphemia and the demigod, Noemie to travel along.
Noemie was still blacked out when they reached the shore of New York (after four days out at sea). After she awakened, she silently followed Euphemia to Camp Half Blood, a place that was seemingly suppose to provide her sanctuary, but all it did was bring her misery and disappointment.
Faction Reason: The gods are insensitive towards their children and use us for their own personal gain. They don't care if most of us were born into poverty and desolation. Everywhere I go, there seems to be a wake of destruction and death in my path. It is time to take a stance against the Olympians absence. We shall warm their callous hearts in ashes of fire and blood.
Weapons: An extending whip made out of Celestial bronze. A dagger.
Your claim needs to have a section at the bottom detailing why your character wants to join the faction of her choice. Also, what is this whip made out of?
what do you mean "heralding" from the underworld? the whip brings news from the underworld? Heralding usually means some type of message, or messenger, news bringer, etc (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/heralding)

To my knowledge St. Genevive doesn't exist, Judith isn't a male name, and control over an entire volcano seems somewhat excessive whether conscious or unconscious. Her reasons for joining the Veritum Unitum also seem questionable as Noemi hasn't undergone too much hardship. She hasn't been used or manipulated, and why as a child would she have prayed to gods she didn't know existed? It's not a bad story, but it needs work.
St. Genevieve is a fictional location. Renamed the father :-). Didn't see that until you told me. I meant Judas, not Judith. Downplayed the who volcanic eruption. Added more tragedy/drama. --NixieOz (talk) 05:55, March 7, 2014 (UTC)
