Name: Celaena Amortentia Kingsley

Age: Eighteen

Mortal Parent: Ambrose Kingsley

God/Titan: Hecate

Appearance (optional):

Portrayed by Katherine McNamara (shared with frost)

Personality (at least a sentence or two): Celaena is a complex mixture of anger, sorrow and sarcastic quips but definitely has a soft and sweet interior beneath her cold shell. She is generally pretty untrusting of just about everyone outside of her wolf pack and tends to stay well away from strangers out of fear and caution. Having been hurt before, she often struggles to acceot any sort of physical contact and it mostly makes her very uncomfortable or nervous. She also spooks easy when men with loud voices try to assert their authority over her.

However, she can be an absolute ray of sunshine when you get close enough to see the kind girl on the inside. The only way she really knows how to show affection is through baked goods and fierce protecting. She is loyal to a handful of people at Camp Half-Blood and wouldn't be afraid to lay her life down for them. Just don't get on her bad side because she can hold a grudge. Being able to age normally again isn't about to stop her from haunting you to the grave and beyond. She is a fiesty little thing with a knack for pestering those she loves.

History (more than a paragraph): It was on a cold day in December, the weather in 1834 contributing to some lengthy blizzards and bouts of sickness - it was within that month that Ambrose Kingsley opened his own Apothecary shop in the wealthier part of London and immediately sky-rocketed through the social ranks. He became the talk of the town after his remedy for the common cold became a huge hit among the people. But it was one frequent customer that always seemed to capture his eye - a strangely beautiful young lady that raised eyebrows wherever she went with her outlandish ideas. Ambrose was smitten by Ana the moment he discovered that she was a healer that actually made her own tonics, selling them at lower prices so that the poor could afford them. Their relationship developed over the span of a year before Ana had fallen pregnant with his child. It came as a shock to learn that Ana had completely vanished the following day, leaving no indication of where she would be or when she would return.

Over the course of time, Ambrose began to lose hope that Ana would ever return with his child and continued to sell medicine to the wealthy people of London. Whispers about Ana fleeing with the baby begun to taint his reputation and lower the value of his product. Months passed and Ambrose woke to the sound of someone else within his home. He discovered no intruder, just a basket with a infant child, what appeared to be a crossbow and letter of explanation. It was that night that Ambrose discovered he had a daughter, Celaena, as she was called by Ana - no, Hecate. The goddess of witchcraft had learned his weakness and manipulated him for her own fun before dumping a child into his arms to raise. Ambrose was so furious that his denial led to the disbelief that Ana was actually a Greek goddess. Celaena was raised to believe that she was no different than any other child.

That was until Celaena was eight years old and she nearly launched a fireball into her father's shop while he was away, attracting the attention of a harpy. Thankfully, Celaena had found the crossbow that was from her mother nearly three years ago anf used it to kill the beast in an alleyway beside the Apothecary. The monster attacks continued throughout most of her teenage years and she got surprisingly good with the crossbow, which she learned was celestial bronze. With the help of her abilities and strong mixtures of medicine that her father made below their apartment, Celaena managed to remain safe until she was seventeen years old. Ambrose finally gave Celaena the letter from her mother.

Ambrose took Celaena with him to attend an important charity ball in Wales, the pair taking up keep in a small cottage in the beautiful countryside. That evening, Celaena went hunting in the woods and left her father alone in the cottage. A spark from the woodstone caught the dry wooding of the walls and the entire place went up in smoke and flames, killing her father as he slept. Celaena, with nothing left of her life chose to join the hunt when she discovered Artemis had been watching her in the countryside for a couple weeks. Feeling pity for her situation, Artemis made Celaena a huntress and she joined the ranks among other females. Life was spectacular up until her entire life was shattered for a second time - Celaena had been taken advantage of one night as she slept by a male companion of the hunt and her chastity was stripped. Artemis was furious that the oath she had sworn was broken and turned Celaena into a wolf, forcing the girl to pay the debt she owed to the goddess by joining the hunt. Celaena was granted her justice when Artemis presented the man who destroyed her life - and Celaena destroyed his in favor. Her wolf instincts didn't let her hesitate to rip the man to shreds.

Hundreds of years passed and Celaena still followed the huntresses with her pack - a group of males who had also been indebited to Artemis and turned into wolves to aid in the hunt. Eventually, she learned to trust and even love them like family so when it came time for Artemis to release them from their metaphorical contract, Celaena refused to stay behind as the others went to Camp Half-Blood and so she joined them.

Weapon(s) (optional): A celestial bronze crossbow and dagger.
