History: Paloma was born in the late 1700s, approximately 1790. She lived in Spain with her father, a rich noble who had the favor of Charles IV, the king. Her father met Paloma's divine mother at a party held by the king. They spent one night together, and [goddess] delivered Paloma to him 9 months later with a short note explaining everything: who she was, why he had to care for the child. Paloma didn't see much of the world during her early childhood, being kept in her father's estate most of the time and looked after by nursemaids. However, Paloma grew to be extremely beautiful, and many of the men town expressed interest in her when she was given more freedom to explore the town. But Paloma's father dismissed all their courting, for he wanted better for her. He intended to move to another city, one more prosperous, but before that could happen, Paloma started to have frightening premonitions that came in the form of dreams. She persisted in asking her father about them, and eventually he relented and told her the truth: She was a demigod. He had never before commented on Paloma's mother, but now revealed that she had in fact been a beautiful goddess which he had a short fling with. Paloma had assumed that her mother had been a Lady at the royal court, but never dreamed the truth.
Paloma's interest in her mother grew, and she decided she wanted to be closer to her. After all, she believed she had nothing else in her life and had no desire for a life of wealth. She ran away from home, refused her father's command to stay and be married, and prayed to her mother for guidance. She wanted to meet her and be a part of her life. She eventually crossed paths with the Hunters of Artemis. When Artemis explained about her hunters and invited her to join, Paloma at first accepted. She was now about 16, but after all the countless proposals she'd been subject to, had no interest in boys. Paloma roamed the earth with Artemis as a huntress for about twenty years, and enjoyed it. However, sometime after the turn of the century, she did th~~e unthinkable: She fell in love.
While passing through a town one night, she encountered a young man and for some reason was deeply attracted to him. Against her better judgement, she ignored her oath and became completely enamoured with him. When Artemis found this out, she was outraged. She cast Paloma out of the hunt and turned the boy into a jackelope. This was when her bi-polar disorder emerged completely. Paloma was absolutely enraged. Artemis was so angry at Paloma that she cursed her and broke her spirit. She stuck her in the Lotus Casino, intending to keep her there forever. After a couple centuries, Persephone pleaded with Artemis to give Paloma another chance. Artemis grudgingly agreed, and released her.
So wait, is she a hunter now, or a demigod? And if she's a demigod, how would she have survived without againg while "frozen"?
Yeah I gotta agree the frozen thing kinda confuses me there but what I don't get is how her bi-polar disorder emerged when Artemis threw her out of the hunt. Bi-polar disorder is usually due to a chemical imbalance in your brain. She had to have been born with it if my info on Bpd is correct.

Well what I mean is that she really started showing the symptoms then. She always had the disorder, but it was more controlled and not as big of a deal. After her ordeal, she just got worse. And about the frozen thing, I guess I can change it.Because I hold with those who favor fire... It's gettin' hot here! 00:25, February 25, 2012 (UTC)
